AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On November 23, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary Results for this administrative review.1 We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. This review covers two mandatory respondents: Prosperity and YP.2 We received case briefs from 1 See Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2018–2019, 85 FR 74669 (November 23, 2020) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 2 In the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation of the AD order, we collapsed Prosperity, YP, and Synn and treated them as a single entity.

Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is flat-rolled steel products, either clad, plated, or coated with corrosionresistant metals such as zinc, aluminum, or zinc-, aluminum-, nickel- or ironbased alloys, whether or not corrugated or painted, varnished, laminated, or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances in addition to the metallic coating. The subject Prosperity, YP and Synn was challenged by respondent parties in the investigation and is subject to pending litigation. In the first antidumping duty administrative review, we determined to no longer collapse Prosperity with YP and Synn but we continued to collapse YP and Synn and treat them as a single entity.

In the Preliminary Results of the instant review, we preliminarily found YP and Synn to no longer be collapsed, and made a preliminary finding of no shipments with respect to Synn. As discussed further below, we sustain our preliminary determination finding YP and Synn to be not collapsed and our preliminary determination of no shipments with respect to Synn. See ‘‘Affiliation and Collapsing’’ and ‘‘Final Determination of No Shipments’’ sections, below. Accordingly, though the instant review was initiated on YP and Synn as a single collapsed respondent, we have treated them as distinct entities for the purposes of these final results. 3 See YP’s Letter, ‘‘Case Brief,’’ dated January 6, 2021; and Petitioners’ Letter, ‘‘Petitioners’ Case Brief,’’ dated January 6, 2021. 4 See YP’s Letter, ‘‘Rebuttal Brief,’’ dated January 13, 2021; and Petitioners’ Letter, ‘‘Petitioners’ Rebuttal Brief,’’ dated January 13, 2021. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 2018–2019,’’ dated March 18, 2021. 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the 2018– 2019 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum).

Affiliation and Collapsing In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that the evidence on the record of this administrative review does not support a finding that YP should be collapsed with Synn, and therefore should not be collapsed as the YP/Synn entity for this POR. As we have not received any information to contradict this preliminary determination, nor comment in opposition to our preliminary finding, we determine not to collapse YP with Synn and thus to treat YP and Synn as distinct entities for the purposes of these final results.7 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Analysis of the Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.8 A list of the issues which parties raised, and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, is attached in the appendix to this notice.

In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/ index.html. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made a change to the preliminary weighted-average margin calculation for YP. For detailed information, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. entirely on FA.10 For these final results of review, we calculated a zero percent weighted-average dumping margin for Prosperity and a weighted-average dumping margin for YP that is above de minimis and not based entirely on FA. Therefore, consistent with our practice, we have assigned the companies not selected for individual examination the weighted-average dumping margin calculated for YP. Final Results of the Administrative Review We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the respondents for the period July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019: Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Synn made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.9 As we have not received any information to contradict this determination, nor comment in opposition to our preliminary finding, we continue to determine that Synn made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Consistent with our practice, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate any existing entries of subject merchandise produced by Synn, but exported by other parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate. Rates for Respondents Not Selected for Individual Examination The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to individual respondents not selected for examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for respondents which we did not examine in an administrative review. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act establishes a preference to avoid using rates which are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available (FA) in calculating an all others rate. Accordingly, Commerce’s practice in administrative reviews has been to average the weighted-average dumping margins for the companies selected for individual examination in the administrative review, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based 9 See PO 00000 Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 74670.

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), 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 those sales. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.11 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the mandatory respondents 10 See, e.g., Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews and Rescission of Reviews in Part, 73 FR 52823, 52824 (September 11, 2008), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 16. 11 In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

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.12 Consistent with its recent notice,13 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 cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of 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 equal to the weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior completed segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the companyspecific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the producer has been covered in a prior complete segment of this proceeding, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 3.66 percent,14 the jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 12 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.

Affiliation and Collapsing

    In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that the 
evidence on the record of this administrative review does not support a 
finding that YP should be collapsed with Synn, and therefore should not 
be collapsed as the YP/Synn entity for this POR. As we have not 
received any information to contradict this preliminary determination, 
nor comment in opposition to our preliminary finding, we determine not 
to collapse YP with Synn and thus to treat YP and Synn as distinct 
entities for the purposes of these final results.\7\

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made a change 
to the preliminary weighted-average margin calculation for YP. For 
detailed information, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Synn made no 
shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.\9\ As we have not 
received any information to contradict this determination, nor comment 
in opposition to our preliminary finding, we continue to determine that 
Synn made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. 
Consistent with our practice, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to liquidate any existing entries of subject 
merchandise produced by Synn, but exported by other parties, at the 
rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others 
rate.

Rates for Respondents Not Selected for Individual Examination

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate to be applied to individual respondents not 
selected for examination when Commerce limits its examination in an 
administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. 
Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which 
provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an 
investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for respondents 
which we did not examine in an administrative review. Section 
735(c)(5)(A) of the Act establishes a preference to avoid using rates 
which are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available (FA) 
in calculating an all others rate. Accordingly, Commerce's practice in 
administrative reviews has been to average the weighted-average dumping 
margins for the companies selected for individual examination in the 
administrative review, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or 
based entirely on FA.\10\ For these final results of review, we 
calculated a zero percent weighted-average dumping margin for 
Prosperity and a weighted-average dumping margin for YP that is above 
de minimis and not based entirely on FA. Therefore, consistent with our 
practice, we have assigned the companies not selected for individual 
examination the weighted-average dumping margin calculated for YP.

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist for the respondents for the period July 1, 2018 through June 30, 
2019:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Weighted-

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce will determine, and CBP shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in 
accordance with the final results of this review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), 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 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 assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\11\ For entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR produced by the mandatory respondents

[[Page 28556]]

for which they did not know their merchandise was destined for the 
United States, or for entries associated with Synn, who had no 
shipments during the POR, 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment 
rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: 
Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment 
Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 
FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with its recent notice,\13\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of 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 equal to the weighted-average dumping margins established in the 
final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise 
exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review but 
covered in a prior completed segment of the proceeding, 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 original investigation, but the 
producer has been covered in a prior complete segment of this 
proceeding, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 3.66 percent,\14\ the all-others rate from the Amended 
Final Determination. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

(Amended Final Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
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 written 
notification of return/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 sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 
19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
