A review of the information submitted demonstrates that, pursuant to sections D(1) and D(2) of the Agreement, Metinvest reported to Commerce the sales and data required by the Agreement for calculation of the NVs. Therefore, Commerce preliminary finds Metinvest to be in compliance with the monitoring sections D(1) and D(2) of the Agreement and that the Agreement continues to meet the statutory requirement, pursuant to section 734(d)(2) of the Act of being able to be effectively monitored. Metinvest, in its initial questionnaire response, describes how it ensures compliance with the Agreement’s pricing terms and the relevant NV period in making sales directly to unaffiliated U.S. customers and in arranging shipment to the United States.6 A review of the information in the initial and supplemental questionnaire responses finds no evidence of non-compliance by Metinvest with respect to ensuring that subject merchandise is sold in the United States at prices that are at or above the applicable NV determined by Commerce. Therefore, Commerce preliminarily finds that the Agreement is continuing to meet the statutory requirements section of section 734(b) of the Act. With regard to the requirements of 734(d) of the Act, Commerce preliminarily finds that the Agreement continues to be in the public interest and that effective monitoring of the Agreement continues to be practicable. As Commerce preliminarily finds no evidence during the POR that Metinvest made sales of subject merchandise below the applicable NV, Commerce preliminarily finds that the Agreement continues to benefit U.S. producers by ensuring that imports of the subject merchandise are fairly traded and are not, therefore, negatively impacting the competitiveness of the domestic industry. Moreover, as Commerce preliminarily finds no evidence of non5 See Memorandum, ‘‘2018–2019 Administrative Review of the Agreement Suspending the Antidumping Investigation of Certain Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate from Ukraine: Preliminary Analysis Proprietary Memorandum,’’ dated concurrently with and adopted by this notice. 6 See Metinvest’s Letter, ‘‘Sections A, B, and C Initial Questionnaire Response,’’ dated March 5, 2020 at 19. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:30 Mar 23, 2021 Jkt 253001 compliance by Metinvest with the Agreement’s extensive information reporting requirements, Commerce preliminarily finds that effective monitoring of the Agreement continues to be practicable. In addition, in the context of this administrative review, no party has alleged that the Agreement is no longer in the public interest or that the Agreement can no longer be effectively monitored. Accordingly, and in light of our preliminary finding that the respondents are in compliance with the statutory requirements of the Agreement, we preliminarily find that the Agreement continues to meet the criteria of sections 734(b) and (d) of the Act.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days 
of the date of publication of this notice, in accordance with 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 has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where Industeel and NLMK Belgium 
reported the entered value of their U.S. sales, we calculated importer-
specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total 
entered value of the sales for which entered value was reported. Where 
the respondents did not report entered value, we calculated the entered 
value in order to calculate the assessment rate. Where either the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific 
rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the simple average \11\ of the 
cash deposit rates calculated for Industeel and NLMK Belgium. The final 
results of this review shall be the basis for the 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.\12\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' 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

[[Page 15650]]

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.
    Consistent with its recent notice,\13\ 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).

Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 884 (January 
15, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date 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 each specific 
company 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; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-
value (LTFV) 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 5.40 
percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.\14\ 
These 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 the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition 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 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice is being issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: March 18, 2021.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
