SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), Commerce is issuing antidumping duty orders on silicon metal from Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosnia) and Iceland. DATES: Applicable April 19, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brittany Bauer (Bosnia) and Emily Halle jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:11 Apr 16, 2021 Jkt 253001 (Iceland), AD/CVD Operations, Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3860 and (202) 482–0176, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on February 26, 2021, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the less-thanfair-value (LTFV) investigations of silicon metal from Bosnia and Iceland.1 On April 12, 2021, the ITC notified Commerce of its final affirmative determinations that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of LTFV imports of silicon metal from Bosnia and Iceland.2 Scope of the Orders The products covered by these orders are silicon metal. For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see the appendix to this notice. Antidumping Duty Orders On April 12, 2021, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determinations that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of silicon metal from Bosnia and Iceland. Therefore, in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act, Commerce is issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of silicon metal from Bosnia and Iceland are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Bosnia and Iceland, which are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(b)(1) of the Act, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all 1 See Silicon Metal from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Iceland: Final Affirmative Determinations of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances for Iceland, 86 FR 11720 (February 26, 2021). 2 See ITC’s Letter, ITC Notification, dated April 12, 2021 (ITC Letter). PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 relevant entries of silicon metal from Bosnia and Iceland. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of silicon metal from Bosnia and Iceland which are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after December 11, 2020, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations.3 Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 736 of the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant entries of silicon metal from Bosnia and Iceland as described in the appendix to this notice which are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the ITC’s notice of final determinations in the Federal Register. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties equal to the rates listed below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication in the Federal Register of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determinations, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the cash deposit rates listed below.4 The relevant all-others rate applies to all producers or exporters not specifically listed, as appropriate. Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins The dumping margins for each antidumping duty order are as follows: Exporter or producer Dumping margin (percent) Bosnia and Herzegovina R-S Silicon D.O.O ......................
