SUMMARY: On February 6, 2020, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) published the initiation of the changed circumstances reviews (CCRs) of steel concrete reinforcing bars from Belarus and carbon and alloy steel wire rod from Belarus.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are certain cold-drawn 
mechanical tubing of carbon and alloy steel products from Italy. For a 
full description of the scope, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying 
these preliminary results, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. A 
list of topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is 
included as an appendix to this notice. The Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum is a public document and is made available to the public via 
Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to

version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and electronic versions of the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    We preliminarily determine that the following weighted-average 
dumping margin exists for the period November 22, 2017 through May 31, 
2019:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dalmine S.p.A..............................................       11.38
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries. If Dalmine's weighted-average 
dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) 
in the final results of this review, we will calculate importer-
specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review 
when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final 
results of this review is not zero or de minimis. If Dalmine's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Dalmine for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for 
the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those entries at 
the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate

days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section

regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.
