Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case briefs. Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.10 If the weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then Commerce will calculate importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results, or if an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. In accordance with Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice, for entries of subject merchandise that entered the United States during the POR that were produced by the respondents for which the respondents did not know that its merchandise was destined to the United States, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate of 6.19 percent,11 if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.12 The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise covered by the final results of this review, 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). 10 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). Order. 12 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 11 See PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of MSG from Indonesia entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the companies under review will be the rate established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-thanfair-value investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 6.19 percent, the all-others rate established in the investigation.13 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Final Results of Review Unless otherwise extended, Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of our analysis of issues raised by the parties in the written comments, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1). Notification to Importers This notice also 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 the 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 351.221(b)(4). 13 See E:\FR\FM\25MRN1.SGM Order. 25MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 56 / Thursday, March 25, 2021 / Notices Dated: March 18, 2021.

Intent To Rescind Administrative Review, in Part It is Commerce’s practice to rescind an administrative review of a countervailing duty order, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), when there are no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which liquidation is suspended.8 Normally, upon completion of an administrative review, the suspended entries are liquidated at the countervailing duty assessment rate calculated for the review period.9 Therefore, for an administrative review of a company to be conducted, there must be a reviewable, suspended entry that Commerce can instruct CBP to liquidate at the calculated countervailing duty assessment rate calculated for the review period.10 According to the CBP import data, except for the two mandatory respondents Icdas and Kaptan) and two other companies (Colakoglu Dis Ticaret A.S. and Coakoglu Metalurji A.S.), the remaining 21 companies subject to this review did not have reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which liquidation is suspended. Accordingly, in the absence of reviewable, suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR, we intend to rescind this administrative review with respect to the 21 additional companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).11 Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review There are two companies for which a review was requested, which were not selected as mandatory respondents or 8 See, e.g., Lightweight Thermal Paper from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2015, 82 FR 14349 (March 20, 2017); see also Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2017, 84 FR 14650 (April 11, 2019). 9 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2). 10 See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). 11 The 21 companies are: Acemar International Limited; A G Royce Metal Marketing; Agir Haddecilik A.S; As Gaz Sinai ve Tibbi Gazlar A.S.; Asil Celik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S.; Atakas Celik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S.; Bastug Metalurji Sanayi AS; Demirsan Haddecilik Sanayi Ve Ticaret AS; Diler Dis Ticaret AS; Duferco Investment Services SA; Duferco Celik Ticaret Limited; Ege Celik Endustrisi Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S.; Ekinciler Demir ve Celik Sanayi Anonim Sirketi; Habas Sinai ve Tibbi Gazlar Istihsal Endustrisi A.S.

minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then Commerce will calculate 
importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis in the final results, or if an importer-
specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results, 
Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
for entries of subject merchandise that entered the United States 
during the POR that were produced by the respondents for which the 
respondents did not know that its merchandise was destined to the 
United States, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate of 6.19 percent,\11\ if there is no rate 
for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.\12\ The 
final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of 
antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise covered by the 
final results of this review, where applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Order.
    \12\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 MSG from Indonesia entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the companies 
under review will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will 
be required); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-than-
fair-value investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 6.19 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the investigation.\13\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Order.

Final Results of Review

    Unless otherwise extended, Commerce intends to issue the final 
results of this administrative review, including the results of our 
analysis of issues raised by the parties in the written comments, 
within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results in the 
Federal Register, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.213(h)(1).

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 the 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 351.221(b)(4).
