Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 55 / Wednesday, March 24, 2021 / Notices Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company) (Lockheed Martin) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in Littleton, Colorado. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on March 17, 2021. Lockheed Martin already has authority to produce satellites and other spacecraft for space-based use and subsystems for satellites and other spacecraft within Subzone 123G. The current request would add three foreign status materials/components to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreignstatus materials/components described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Lockheed Martin from customs duty payments on the foreignstatus materials/components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials/ components noted below, Lockheed Martin would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to satellites and other craft for space-based use and subsystems for satellites and other spacecraft (dutyfree). Lockheed Martin would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The materials/components sourced from abroad include rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, electric thrusters, and payload adapter assemblies (duty rate ranges from duty-free to 3.4%). The request indicates that certain materials/ components are subject to duties under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of origin. The applicable Section 301 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is May 3, 2021. A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s website, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.

In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.8 Consistent with its recent notice,9 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 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 the POSCO single entity will be equal to the weightedaverage dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative review (i.e., zero percent); (2) for merchandise exported by a producer or exporter not covered in this 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 in which the producer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigation, but the 7 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 2012). 8 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 9 See Notice of Discontinuation of Policy to Issue Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 15, 2021).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties This notice also 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 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 double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding 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 or destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested.

For a description of the events that occurred since the Preliminary Results, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.3 On July 21, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in administrative reviews by an additional 60 days.4 On December 30, 2020, we extended the deadline for the final results by 60 days, until March 18, 2021.5 The deadline for the final results of this review is now March 18, 2021. Commerce conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are certain carbon and alloy steel hot-rolled or forged flat plate products not in coils, whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances from Italy. Products subject to the order are currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item numbers: 7208.40.3030, 7208.40.3060, 7208.51.0030, 7208.51.0045, 7208.51.0060, 7208.52.0000, 7211.13.0000, 7211.14.0030, 7211.14.0045, 7225.40.1110, 7225.40.1180, 7225.40.3005, 7225.40.3050, 7226.20.0000, and 7226.91.5000.

Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a no shipment claim from one company involved in this administrative review, Lyman Steel Company (Lyman). In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that Lyman had no reviewable transactions during the POR. We received no comments from interested parties with respect to this claim. Therefore, because the record indicates that this company did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we continue to find that Lyman had no reviewable transactions during the POR. Accordingly, consistent with Commerce’s practice, we intend to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by Lyman, but exported by other parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate.7 Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made no changes to the preliminary weighted-average margin calculations for OTS, NVR, or for those companies not selected for individual review.8 Final Results of the Review 1 See Certain Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-ToLength Plate from Italy: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2018– 2019, 85 FR 44283 (July 22, 2020) (Preliminary Results). 2 This company is Nucor Corporation. 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the 2018– 2019 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Carbon and Alloy Steel CutTo-Length Plate from Italy,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, these results (Issues and Decision Memorandum). 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘Tolling of Deadlines for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews,’’ dated July 21, 2020. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Certain Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-To-Length Plate from Italy; 2018–2019 Administrative Review: Extension of Deadline for Final Results,’’ dated December 30, 2020. 6 For a full description of the scope of the order, see Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Corporation), POSCO Processing & Service Co., Ltd., and certain 
distributors and service centers (Taechang Steel Co., Ltd., Winsteel 
Co., Ltd., Moonbae Steel Co., Ltd., Dae Dong Steel Co., Ltd., 
Shinjin Esco Co., Ltd., and Shilla Steel Co., Ltd.) are affiliated 
pursuant to section 771(33)(E) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), and that these companies should be treated as a single 
entity (collectively, the POSCO single entity) pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.401(f). Our collapsing determination with respect to Moonbae 
Steel Co., Ltd. and Dae Dong Steel Co., Ltd. relates only to the 
portion of the POR during which these companies were affiliated with 
POSCO, i.e., from May 1, 2018 to July 2, 2018, and from May 1, 2018 
to June 20, 2018, respectively. See Preliminary Results and PDM at 
9-10; see also Memorandum, ``2018-2019 Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review of Certain Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-to-
Length Plate from the Republic of Korea: Affiliation and Collapsing 
Memorandum,'' dated July 20, 2020.

Disclosure

    Commerce intends to disclose the calculations performed for these 
final results of review within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with section 751(a) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    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 these final results of 
review.\6\ Because the weighted-average dumping margin for the POSCO 
single entity is zero percent, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    \7\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with its recent notice,\9\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Notice of Discontinuation of Policy to Issue Liquidation 
Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 
15, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following 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 the POSCO single 
entity will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established 
in the final results of this administrative review (i.e., zero 
percent); (2) for merchandise exported by a producer or exporter not 
covered in this 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 in which the producer or exporter participated; (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 the proceeding for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers and 
exporters will continue to be 7.10 percent ad valorem, the all-others 
rate established in the LTFV investigation.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Order, 82 FR at 24098.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also 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 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 double 
antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding 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 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 sanctionable violation.

Notification 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(b)(5).

    Dated: March 18, 2021.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
