Rate for Non-Examined Companies The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ‘‘an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the basis of facts available}.’’ In this review, the preliminarily estimated weighted-average dumping margins for Dongbu and Dongkuk are not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts otherwise available, and for Hyundai is zero. Commerce calculated the rate for non-examined companies using a weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated for Dongbu and Dongkuk using each company’s publicly ranged values for the subject merchandise.14 Preliminary Results We preliminarily determine the following weighted-average dumping margins for the period July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Exporter/producer Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd ............................................................................................................................................................................... Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd ....................................................................................................................................................................... Hyundai Steel Corporation ........................................................................................................................................................................ 0.75 0.56 0.00 Exporter/Producer Not Selected for Individual Review POSCO, POSCO Daewoo Corporation and POSCO International Corporation ...................................................................................... POSCO Coated & Color Steel Co., Ltd .................................................................................................................................................... Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review and the respondent reported reliable entered values, we will calculate importerspecific ad valorem assessment rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales made during the POR to each importer and the total entered value of those same sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the respondent has not reported reliable entered values, we will calculate a per-unit assessment rate for each importer by dividing the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales made to that importer by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. Where an importerspecific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). If a respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., ‘‘{w}here the weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.’’ 15 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Dongbu, Dongkuk, Hyundai, POSCO, and POSCO C&C for which the producer did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, or for any respondent for which we have a final determination of no shipments, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company (or companies) involved in the transaction.16 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. 14 For a complete analysis of the data, please see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Commerce normally calculates (A) a weighted-average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the examined respondents; (B) a simple average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the examined respondents; and (C) a weighted-average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the examined respondents using each company’s publicly ranged U.S. sale values of the subject merchandise. Commerce then selects from (B) and (C) the rate closest to (A) as the most appropriate rate for non-examined companies.

ACTION: Notice; proposed modification of an incidental harassment authorization; request for comments. AGENCY: NMFS received a request from the United States Navy (Navy) on October 14, 2020, for a modification to the incidental harassment authorization (IHA) that was issued on July 3, 2019 due to an elevated harbor seal take rate that was unanticipated. A small group of harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) repeatedly entered into and remained within the Level A harassment zone, resulting in a take rate that was projected to exceed the authorized limit for this species. The Navy felt that without an increase in authorized take of harbor seal they would be forced to repeatedly shut down whenever animals entered into specified Level A harassment zones, which would impede their ability to get the work done in the time needed. Therefore, NMFS is proposing to modify the IHA to increase authorized take by Level A harassment of harbor seal. NMFS is also proposing to revise the shutdown mitigation provisions for harbor seals in the modified IHA. The monitoring and reporting measures remain the same as prescribed in the initial IHA and no additional take was requested for other species. NMFS will consider public comments on the requested modification prior to making any final decision and agency responses will be summarized in the final notice of our decision.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this administrative review in accordance 
with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 
Constructed export price and export price were calculated in accordance 
with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance 
with section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology 
underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. A 
list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is 
attached as an appendix to this notice. The Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically

Rate for Non-Examined Companies

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for 
individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an 
administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. 
Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which 
provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market 
economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for 
companies which were not selected for individual examination in an 
administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-
others rate is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero 
or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the 
basis of facts available{time} .''
    In this review, the preliminarily estimated weighted-average 
dumping margins for Dongbu and Dongkuk are not zero, de minimis, or 
based entirely on facts otherwise available, and for Hyundai is zero. 
Commerce calculated the rate for non-examined companies using a 
weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins 
calculated for Dongbu and Dongkuk using each company's publicly ranged 
values for the subject merchandise.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ For a complete analysis of the data, please see Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum. Commerce normally calculates (A) a weighted-
average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated 
for the examined respondents; (B) a simple average of the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the examined 
respondents; and (C) a weighted-average of the estimated weighted-
average dumping margins calculated for the examined respondents 
using each company's publicly ranged U.S. sale values of the subject 
merchandise. Commerce then selects from (B) and (C) the rate closest 
to (A) as the most appropriate rate for non-examined companies. See

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-
average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 
percent) in the final results of this review and the respondent 
reported reliable entered values, we will calculate importer-specific 
ad valorem assessment rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of 
the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales made 
during the POR to each importer and the total entered value of those 
same sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the respondent 
has not reported reliable entered values, we will calculate a per-unit 
assessment rate for each importer by dividing the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the examined sales made to that importer by the 
total sales quantity associated with those transactions. Where an 
importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis in 
the final results of review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). If a respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will 
instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance 
with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., ``{w{time} here the 
weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be 
zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.'' \15\

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Dongbu, Dongkuk, Hyundai, POSCO, and POSCO C&C for which the producer 
did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, or for 
any respondent for which we have a final determination of no shipments, 
we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others 
rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company (or companies) 
involved in the transaction.\16\

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of this administrative 
review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The 
cash deposit rate for each specific company

[[Page 74989]]

listed above will be that established in the final results of this 
review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent, and therefore de 
minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the 
cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously investigated 
companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the company 
participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, 
or the underlying investigation, but the manufacturer is, then the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment 
for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate 
for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 8.32 
percent, the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value 
investigation.\17\ These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
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 double 
antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 17, 2020.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
