Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of comments received from parties, and for 
the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, Commerce 
made certain changes to the Preliminary Results. Specifically, we 
revised our treatment of Shin Yang's purchases of hot-rolled coil from 
its affiliate.\5\ In addition, we used the updated U.S. sales database 
provided by Shin Yang on March 3, 2020.\6\ However, these revisions did 
not result in a change to the weighted-average dumping margin 
calculated for Shin Yang in these final results of review.

Questionnaire Response at Exhibit 9.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping 
margin exists for Shin Yang for the POR from May 1, 2018 through April 
30, 2019:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Dumping
                     Producer/exporter                          margin
                                                              (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shin Yang Steel Co., Ltd...................................        1.71
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final 
results to interested parties in this proceeding within five days of 
the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review.
    For Shin Yang, because its weighted-average dumping margin is not 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), Commerce has 
calculated importer-specific (or customer-specific) antidumping duty 
assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review.\7\ We 
calculated importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates by 
aggregating the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined 
sales of

[[Page 6303]]

each importer and dividing each of these amounts by the total sales 
quantity associated with those sales.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted 
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Shin Yang 
for which the company 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 company 
involved in the transaction. Commerce intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final 
results of this review in the Federal Register.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of the final results of this administrative 
review for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The 
cash deposit rate for Shin Yang will be equal to the rate established 
in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise 
exported by producers and/or exporters not covered in this review, but 
covered in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate 
will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recently-completed segment in which the company was reviewed; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the 
producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established 
for the most recently-completed segment of this proceeding for the 
producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for 
all other producers or exporters will continue to be 9.70 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.\8\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final 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 review period. 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.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 
destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order 
is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the 
terms of an APO is a violation subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these final results in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
