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 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, E:\FR\FM\08MRN1.SGM 08MRN1 13326 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 43 / Monday, March 8, 2021 / Notices 7606.12.3035, 7606.12.3091, 7606.91.3055, 7606.91.6055, 7606.92.3025, 7606.92.6055, 7607.11.9090.

Verification

    Commerce was unable to conduct an on-site verification of the 
information relied upon in making its final determination in this 
investigation as provided for in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act). Accordingly, we took additional steps in 
lieu of on-site verification and requested additional documentation and 
information after issuing the Preliminary Determination.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Commerce's Letter to Aluminium Co. of Egypt (Egyptalum) 
and Egyptian Copper Works (Egypt Copper), (collectively, Egyptalum-
Egypt Copper), dated November 6, 2020; see also Egyptalum-Egypt 
Copper's Letter, ``Common Alloy Aluminum Sheet from Egypt: Remote 
Verification Questionnaire Response,'' dated November 16, 2020.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received and our findings 
related to our request for information in lieu of verification, we made 
certain changes to our dumping margin calculations. For a discussion of 
these changes, see the ``Changes Since the Preliminary Determination'' 
section of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Use of Adverse Facts Available

    Commerce determined certain movement expenses for Egyptalum-Egypt 
Copper based on adverse facts available pursuant to sections 776(a) and 
(b) of the Act.\6\ For a full description of the methodology underlying 
the final determination, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ Commerce determined that Egyptalum and Egypt Copper are a 
single entity. See Memorandum, ``Antidumping Duty Investigation of 
Common Alloy Aluminum Sheet from Egypt: Aluminium Company of Egypt 
(Egyptalum) Preliminary Affiliation and Collapsing Memorandum,'' 
dated October 6, 2020; see also Preliminary Determination PDM).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

All-Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margin for all other producers and exporters 
not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
exporters and producers individually investigated excluding rates that 
are zero, de minimis, or determined entirely under section 776 of the 
Act. Commerce calculated an individual estimated weighted-average 
dumping margin for Egyptalum-Egypt Copper, the only exporter/producer

[[Page 13325]]

individually examined in this investigation. Because Egyptalum-Egypt 
Copper's dumping margin is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on 
facts otherwise available, we assigned the estimated weighted-average 
dumping margin calculated for Egyptalum-Egypt Copper to all other 
producers and exporters, pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

Final Determination

    The final estimated weighted-average dumping margins are as 
follows:

this final determination.

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, Commerce will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of aluminum sheet from 
Egypt, as described in Appendix I of this notice, which were entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after October 15, 
2020, the date of publication in the Federal Register of the 
affirmative Preliminary Determination.
    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(d), we will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit for such 
entries of merchandise equal to the following: (1) The cash deposit 
rate for the respondent listed in the table above will be equal to the 
respondent-specific estimated weighted-average dumping margin listed 
for the respondent in the table; (2) if the exporter is not identified 
in the table above but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will 
be equal to the respondent-specific estimated weighted-average dumping 
margin established for that producer of the subject merchandise; and 
(3) the cash deposit rate for all other producers and exporters will be 
equal to the all-others estimated weighted-average dumping margin 
listed in the table above. These suspension-of-liquidation instructions 
will remain in effect until further notice.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
International Trade Commission (ITC) of this final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. Because Commerce's final determination 
is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the 
ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic 
industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with 
material injury, by reason of imports or sales (or the likelihood of 
sales) for importation of aluminum sheet no later than 45 days after 
this final determination. If the ITC determines that such injury does 
not exist, this proceeding will be terminated, all cash deposits posted 
will be refunded, and suspension of liquidation will be lifted. If the 
ITC determines that such injury does exist, Commerce will issue an 
antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further 
instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on all imports of the 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of 
liquidation, as discussed above in the ``Continuation of Suspension of 
Liquidation'' section.

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 
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. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of this investigation is 
dispositive.
