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.

    The merchandise covered by the order is steel concrete reinforcing 
bar (rebar) imported in either straight length or coil form regardless

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this administrative review in accordance 
with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act). For each subsidy program found countervailable, we preliminarily 
find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial 
contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that 
the subsidy is specific.\7\ For a full description of the methodology 
underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding 
financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

[[Page 15922]]

found to be cross-owned with a mandatory respondent. Because the rate 
calculated for the mandatory respondent, Kaptan, was above de minimis 
and not based entirely on facts available, we applied the subsidy rate 
calculated for Kaptan to these two non-selected companies. This 
methodology for establishing the subsidy rate for the non-selected 
companies is consistent with our practice and with section 705(c)(5)(A) 
of the Act.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    We preliminarily find that the net countervailable subsidy rates 
for the period January 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018, are as 
follows:

Assessment Rates

    Consistent with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, upon issuance of 
the final results, Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, countervailing duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review. If the rate calculated for 
any respondent, in the final results is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise without regard to countervailing duties. 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

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce intends to 
instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing 
duties in the amounts shown for each of the respective companies listed 
above, except, where the rate calculated in the final results is zero 
or de minimis, no cash deposit will be required on shipments of the 
subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of 
this review. For all non-reviewed firms, CBP will continue to collect 
cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at the all-others rate 
or the most recent company-specific rate applicable to the company, as 
appropriate. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    Commerce intends to disclose its calculations and analysis 
performed in reaching the preliminary results within five days of 
publication of these preliminary results.\14\ Because Commerce intends 
to request additional information after these preliminary results, 
interested parties will be provided an opportunity to submit written 
comments (case briefs) at a date to be determined by Commerce and 
rebuttal comments (rebuttal briefs) within seven days after the time 
limit for filing case briefs.\15\ Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(d)(2),
