---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price 
and constructed export price are calculated in accordance with section 
772 of the Act. NV is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the 
Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically 
via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to 
registered users at http://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete 
version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly 
at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. A list of the topics discussed in 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as Appendix I to this 
notice.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the 
following weighted-average dumping margins for the period December 1, 
2018, through November 30, 2019:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate 
is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted average of the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters 
and producers individually examined, excluding any margins that are 
zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on 
the basis of facts available{time} .'' For these preliminary 
results, we have calculated weighted-average dumping margins for 
NEXTEEL and SeAH that are zero or de minimis, and we have not 
calculated any margins which are not zero, de minimis, or determined 
entirely on the basis of facts available. Accordingly, we have 
assigned to the companies not individually examined a margin of zero 
percent. The exporters/producers subject to this review, but not 
selected for individual review, are listed in Appendix II.

Review-Specific Average Rate for Companies Not Selected for Individual 
Review

    The exporters or producers not selected for individual review are 
listed in Appendix II.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where NEXTEEL Co., Ltd. (NEXTEEL) 
reported the entered value of its U.S. sales, we calculated importer-
specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total 
entered value of the sales for which entered value was reported. SeAH 
Steel Corporation (SeAH) did not report actual entered value for all of 
its U.S. sales; in such instances, we calculated importer-specific per-
unit duty assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of 
antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales and dividing this 
amount by the total quantity of those sales. Where either the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific 
rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the weighted average of the 
cash deposit rates calculated for NEXTEEL and SeAH. The final results 
of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping 
duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this 
review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where 
applicable.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice will apply to entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by NEXTEEL or SeAH 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.
    Consistent with its recent notice,\8\ 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 companies 
listed above will be that established in the final results of this 
review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de 
minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in

[[Page 20486]]

which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed companies not covered in this review, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific cash deposit rate 
published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in 
which the company participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm 
covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, then the cash deposit rate will 
be the rate established for the most recent segment for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 4.38 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.\9\ These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: April 14, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
