Timely written notification of return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.

Notification to Interested Parties This determination and this notice are issued and published pursuant to sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.210(c). Dated: March 1, 2021. Christian Marsh, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Appendix I Scope of the Investigation The products covered by this investigation are common alloy aluminum sheet, which is a flat-rolled aluminum product having a thickness of 6.3 mm or less, but greater than 0.2 mm, in coils or cut-to-length, regardless of width. Common alloy sheet within the scope of this investigation includes both not clad aluminum sheet, as well as multi-alloy, clad aluminum sheet. With respect to not clad aluminum sheet, common alloy sheet is manufactured from a 1XXX-, 3XXX-, or 5XXX-series alloy as designated by the Aluminum Association. With respect to multi-alloy, clad aluminum sheet, common alloy sheet is produced from a 3XXX-series core, to which cladding layers are applied to either one or both sides of the core. The use of a proprietary alloy or non-proprietary alloy that is not specifically registered by the Aluminum Association as a discrete 1XXX-, 3XXX-, or 5XXX-series alloy, but that otherwise has a chemistry that is consistent with these designations, does not remove an otherwise in-scope product from the scope. Common alloy sheet may be made to ASTM specification B209–14 but can also be made to other specifications. Regardless of specification, however, all common alloy sheet meeting the scope description is included in the scope. Subject merchandise includes common alloy sheet that has been further processed in a third country, including but not limited to annealing, tempering, painting, varnishing, trimming, cutting, punching, and/or slitting, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of this investigation if performed in the country of manufacture of the common alloy sheet. Excluded from the scope of this investigation is aluminum can stock, which is suitable for use in the manufacture of aluminum beverage cans, lids of such cans, or tabs used to open such cans. Aluminum can stock is produced to gauges that range from 0.200 mm to 0.292 mm, and has an H–19, H–41, H–48, H–39, or H–391 temper. In addition, aluminum can stock has a lubricant applied to the flat surfaces of the can stock to facilitate its movement through VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:05 Mar 05, 2021 Jkt 253001 machines used in the manufacture of beverage cans. Aluminum can stock is properly classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7606.12.3045 and 7606.12.3055. Where the nominal and actual measurements vary, a product is within the scope if application of either the nominal or actual measurement would place it within the scope based on the definitions set for the above. Common alloy sheet is currently classifiable under HTSUS subheadings 7606.11.3060, 7606.11.6000, 7606.12.3096, 7606.12.6000, 7606.91.3095, 7606.91.6095, 7606.92.3035, and 7606.92.6095. Further, merchandise that falls within the scope of this investigation may also be entered into the United States under HTSUS subheadings 7606.11.3030, 7606.12.3015, 7606.12.3025, 7606.12.3035, 7606.12.3091, 7606.91.3055, 7606.91.6055, 7606.92.3025, 7606.92.6055, 7607.11.9090.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days after publication of these final results in 
the Federal Register, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in 
accordance with the final results of this review.
    We intend to calculate importer- (or customer-) specific assessment 
rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping 
duties calculated for each importer's (or customer's) examined sales 
and the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Where an importer- (or customer-) specific rate is zero 
or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.
    Commerce's ``reseller policy'' will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these 
final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know 
that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, 
trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In 
such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at 
the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\7\

68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final results of this administrative review shall be the basis 
for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise 
under review and for future cash deposits of estimated duties, where 
applicable. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no 
earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results 
of this review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at 
the U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will 
direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties 
to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 
90 days of publication).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for respondents 
noted above will be the rate established in the final results of this 
administrative review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent 
and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(I), 
in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for merchandise 
exported by producers or exporters not covered in this administrative 
review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company specific-rate published 
for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (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, 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 11.80 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 also serves as a final 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 the 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.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (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/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 sanctionable violation.

Notice to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221.

    Dated: March 2, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
