Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand From Malaysia: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 18502-18504 [2021-07367]

Download as PDF 18502 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 67 / Friday, April 9, 2021 / Notices Assessment Rates Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b). 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). Because we calculated a zero margin for Hyundai Steel Company in the final results of this review, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.8 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of these final results for all shipments of hot-rolled steel from Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Hyundai Steel Company will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by a company 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 in the completed segment for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the original investigation but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the completed segment for the most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 6.05 percent, the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.9 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Disclosure Normally, Commerce discloses to the parties in a proceeding the calculations 8 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

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 Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under the 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/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. Notification to Interested Parties We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5). Dated: April 5, 2021.

Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case briefs and rebuttal briefs submitted by interested parties in this proceeding are discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by parties and responded to by Commerce in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this notice as Appendix II. 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 an on-site verification and requested additional documentation and information.3 Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made changes to the margins calculated for Wei Dat and Kiswire. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Use of Facts Available and Adverse Facts Available One of the mandatory respondents, Southern, withdrew from participation in this investigation.4 Therefore, in the Preliminary Determination, pursuant to sections 776(a) and 776(b) of the Act, we assigned to Southern an estimated weighted-average dumping margin based on adverse facts available (AFA). No parties filed comments concerning the Preliminary Determination with respect to Southern, and there is nothing on the record that would cause 3 See Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘In Lieu of Verification Questionnaire,’’ dated December 10, 2020; and Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘In Lieu of Verification Questionnaire,’’ dated December 16, 2020; see also Kiswire’s Letter, ‘‘Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand from Malaysia, Case No. A–557–819: KSB’s Response to Questionnaire in Lieu of Verification,’’ dated December 21, 2020; and Wei Dat’s Letter, ‘‘Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand form Malaysia; Resubmission of December 23, 2020 Supplemental Questionnaire Response in Lieu of Verification,’’ dated January 8, 2021. 4 See Preliminary Determination PDM at 4–8.

Accordingly, we continue to find that the application of AFA pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act is warranted with respect to Southern. Consistent with the Preliminary Determination, Commerce has assigned to Southern the highest individual margin calculated for Wei Dat, which is 26.95 percent.5 Because this rate is not secondary information, but rather is based on information obtained in the course of the investigation, Commerce need not corroborate this rate pursuant to section 776(c) of the Act.6 For further information, see the Preliminary Determination PDM. In addition, we calculated Wei Dat’s final dumping margin using partial AFA. For further information, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. All-Others Rate Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated weightedaverage 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 individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding any margins that are zero, de minimis, or any margins determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. Commerce assigned Southern a dumping margin that is entirely based on section 776(a) and (b) of the Act, and has calculated estimated weighted-average dumping margins for the two producer/exporters participating in this investigation, Kiswire and Wei Dat, that are not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts otherwise available. Consequently, we calculated the all-others rate using a weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the individually examined mandatory respondents using each company’s publicly ranged values for the merchandise under consideration.7 5 Based on changes made to the calculation of Wei Dat’s margin, the highest individual margin for Wei Dat is different than the margin applied as AFA in the Preliminary Determination. However, neither the basis for the application of AFA nor the methodology for determining the AFA rate has changed for this final determination. 6 See Preliminary Determination PDM at 6–8. 7 With two respondents under examination, Commerce normally calculates: (A) a weightedaverage of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the examined respondents; (B) a simple average of the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins calculated for the examined respondents; and (C) a weighted-average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the examined respondents using each company’s publicly-ranged U.S. sale values for the PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18503 Final Determination The final estimated weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: Exporter/producer Kiswire Sdn.

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 subject merchandise, as described in Appendix I of this notice, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after November 19, 2020, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination in the Federal Register. Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(d), upon publication of this notice, Commerce will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit for entries of subject merchandise equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margin or the estimated all-others rate, as follows: (1) The cash deposit rate for the respondents listed in the table above will be equal to the respondent-specific estimated weighted-average dumping margin determined in this final determination; (2) if the exporter is not a respondent identified in the table above but the producer is, then the cash merchandise under consideration. Commerce then compares (B) and (C) to (A) and selects the rate closest to (A) as the most appropriate rate for producers and exporters not subject to individual examination.

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 the final affirmative determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this proceeding 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 PC strand no later than 45 days after our final determination. If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will be terminated, and all cash deposits will be refunded. If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material 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. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an 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).

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation (POI) is April 1, 2019, through March 
31, 2020.

Scope of the Investigation

    The product covered by this investigation is PC strand from 
Malaysia. For a complete description of the scope of this 
investigation, see Appendix I.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case briefs and rebuttal briefs submitted 
by interested parties in this proceeding are discussed in the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by parties and 
responded to by Commerce in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is 
attached to this notice as Appendix II.

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 an on-site verification and requested additional documentation 
and information.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Commerce's Letter, ``In Lieu of Verification 
Questionnaire,'' dated December 10, 2020; and Commerce's Letter, 
``In Lieu of Verification Questionnaire,'' dated December 16, 2020; 
see also Kiswire's Letter, ``Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand 
from Malaysia, Case No. A-557-819: KSB's Response to Questionnaire

Letter, ``Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand form Malaysia; 
Resubmission of December 23, 2020 Supplemental Questionnaire 
Response in Lieu of Verification,'' dated January 8, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made changes to 
the margins calculated for Wei Dat and Kiswire. For a discussion of 
these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Use of Facts Available and Adverse Facts Available

    One of the mandatory respondents, Southern, withdrew from 
participation in this investigation.\4\ Therefore, in the Preliminary 
Determination, pursuant to sections 776(a) and 776(b) of the Act, we 
assigned to Southern an estimated weighted-average dumping margin based 
on adverse facts available (AFA). No parties filed comments concerning 
the Preliminary Determination with respect to Southern, and there is 
nothing on the record that would cause us to revisit the Preliminary 
Determination. Accordingly, we continue to find that the application of 
AFA pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act is warranted with 
respect to Southern. Consistent with the Preliminary Determination, 
Commerce has assigned to Southern the highest individual margin 
calculated for Wei Dat, which is 26.95 percent.\5\ Because this rate is 
not secondary information, but rather is based on information obtained 
in the course of the investigation, Commerce need not corroborate this 
rate pursuant to section 776(c) of the Act.\6\ For further information, 
see the Preliminary Determination PDM.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Preliminary Determination PDM at 4-8.
    \5\ Based on changes made to the calculation of Wei Dat's 
margin, the highest individual margin for Wei Dat is different than 
the margin applied as AFA in the Preliminary Determination. However, 
neither the basis for the application of AFA nor the methodology for 
determining the AFA rate has changed for this final determination.
    \6\ See Preliminary Determination PDM at 6-8.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition, we calculated Wei Dat's final dumping margin using 
partial AFA. For further information, see the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.

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 
individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding any 
margins that are zero, de minimis, or any margins determined entirely 
under section 776 of the Act. Commerce assigned Southern a dumping 
margin that is entirely based on section 776(a) and (b) of the Act, and 
has calculated estimated weighted-average dumping margins for the two 
producer/exporters participating in this investigation, Kiswire and Wei 
Dat, that are not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts 
otherwise available. Consequently, we calculated the all-others rate 
using a weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping 
margins calculated for the individually examined mandatory respondents 
using each company's publicly ranged values for the merchandise under 
consideration.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ With two respondents under examination, Commerce normally 
calculates: (A) a weighted-average of the estimated weighted-average 
dumping margins calculated for the examined respondents; (B) a 
simple average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins 
calculated for the examined respondents; and (C) a weighted-average 
of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the 
examined respondents using each company's publicly-ranged U.S. sale 
values for the merchandise under consideration. Commerce then 
compares (B) and (C) to (A) and selects the rate closest to (A) as 
the most appropriate rate for producers and exporters not subject to 
individual examination. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from 
France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results 
of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, Final Results of 
Changed-Circumstances Review, and Revocation of an Order in Part, 75 
FR 53661, 53663 (September 1, 2010). For a complete analysis of the 
data, see Memorandum, ``Final Determination Calculation for the 
`All-Others' Rate,'' dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, 
this notice.

351.210(d), upon publication of this notice, Commerce will instruct CBP 
to require a cash deposit for entries of subject merchandise equal to 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margin or the estimated all-
others rate, as follows: (1) The cash deposit rate for the respondents 
listed in the table above will be equal to the respondent-specific 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin determined in this final 
determination; (2) if the exporter is not a respondent identified in 
the table above but the producer is, then the cash

deposit rate will be equal to the 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.
    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 the final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this 
proceeding 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 PC strand no later than 45 days 
after our final determination. If the ITC determines that material 
injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will 
be terminated, and all cash deposits will be refunded. If the ITC 
determines that material injury or threat of material 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.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an 
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). Timely 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 violation subject to sanction.

accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(c).

    Dated: April 5, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

Appendix I

Scope of the Investigation

    The merchandise covered by this investigation is prestressed 
concrete steel wire strand (PC strand), produced from wire of non-
stainless, non-galvanized steel, which is suitable for use in 
prestressed concrete (both pretensioned and post-tensioned) 
applications. The product definition encompasses covered and 
uncovered strand and all types, grades, and diameters of PC strand. 
PC strand is normally sold in the United States in sizes ranging 
from 0.25 inches to 0.70 inches in diameter. PC strand made from 
galvanized wire is only excluded from the scope if the zinc and/or 
zinc oxide coating meets or exceeds the 0.40 oz./ft\2\ standard set 
forth in ASTM-A-475.
    The PC strand subject to this investigation is currently 
classifiable under subheadings 7312.10.3010 and 7312.10.3012 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although 
the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation 
is dispositive.
