In this review, we find this rate is reasonably reflective of Ambica’s potential dumping margin, and thus, it is appropriate to apply this rate to the nonselected company, Ambica, under section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. For a detailed discussion, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Commerce is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping 
duty (AD) order of SS Bar from India. The notice of initiation was 
published on April 8, 2020.\1\ This review covers Precision Metals, and 
its affiliated companies including Hindustan Inox, Precision Metals and 
Sieves Manufacturers (India) Pvt. Ltd. (collectively, the Venus Group), 
and Ambica Steels Limited (Ambica), producers and exporters of the 
subject merchandise. On June 2, 2019, Commerce selected the Venus Group 
as the sole mandatory respondent for this review.\2\ On April 24, 2020, 
Commerce uniformly tolled deadlines for all AD and countervailing duty 
(CVD) administrative reviews by 50 days \3\ and, on July 21, 2020, we 
uniformly tolled deadlines for all AD and CVD administrative reviews by 
an additional 60 days, thereby extending the deadline for these 
preliminary results until February 18, 2021.\4\

Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Stainless Steel

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Pursuant to 
sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, Commerce has preliminarily relied 
upon facts otherwise available with adverse inferences (AFA) for the 
Venus Group, because this respondent withheld information requested by 
Commerce and failed to provide such information by the deadlines set by 
Commerce.
    For a full description of the methodology and analysis underlying 
the preliminary application of AFA, 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

a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be 
accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and 
electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are

Rate for Non-Selected Company

    In accordance with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal 
Circuit's decision in Albermarle,\6\ we are applying a rate based on 
the rate calculated for Ambica in the 2018-2019 administrative review 
(i.e., 0.00) to the only company not selected for individual 
examination, Ambica. In this review, we find this rate is reasonably 
reflective of Ambica's potential dumping margin, and thus, it is 
appropriate to apply this rate to the non-selected company, Ambica, 
under section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. For a detailed discussion, see 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess,

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.\8\ If the preliminary results are unchanged 
for the final results, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem 
assessment rate of 30.92 percent to all entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR from the Venus Group and Ambica.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).

Final Results of Review

results of this administrative review, including the results of its 
analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 
days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    These preliminary results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act, and 19 CFR 351.213 and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: February 18, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
