Scope of the Orders The products covered by these orders are certain flat-rolled steel products, either clad, plated, or coated with corrosion-resistant metals such as zinc, aluminum, or zinc-, aluminum-, nickelor iron-based alloys, whether or not corrugated or painted, varnished, laminated, or coated with plastics or other non-metallic substances in addition to the metallic coating. For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Scope of the Anti-Circumvention Inquiries These anti-circumvention inquiries cover CORE completed in Malaysia from HRS and/or CRS substrate input manufactured in China and subsequently exported to the United States (merchandise subject to these inquiries). This final ruling applies to all shipments of merchandise subject to these inquiries entered on or after the date of the initiation of these inquiries.4 2 See Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from India, Italy, the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Korea and Taiwan: Amended Final Affirmative Antidumping Determination for India and Taiwan, and Antidumping Duty Orders, 81 FR 48390 (July 25, 2016); see also Certain CorrosionResistant Steel Products from India, Italy, Republic of Korea and the People’s Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 81 FR 48387 (July 25, 2016) (collectively, China CORE Orders). 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Anti-Circumvention Inquiries Involving Malaysia of the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders on Certain CorrosionResistant Steel Products from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum). 4 See Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of AntiCircumvention Inquiries on the Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Orders, 84 FR 43585 (August 21, 2019) (Initiation Notice), and accompanying Memorandum, ‘‘Certain CorrosionResistant Steel Products from the People’s Republic E:\FR\FM\07JNN1.SGM Continued 07JNN1 30264 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 107 / Monday, June 7, 2021 / Notices Importers and exporters of CORE produced in Malaysia using: (1) HRS manufactured in Malaysia or other third countries, (2) CRS manufactured in Malaysia using HRS produced in Malaysia or other third countries, or (3) CRS manufactured in other third countries, must certify that the HRS and/or CRS processed into CORE in Malaysia did not originate in China, as provided for in the certifications attached to this Federal Register notice. Otherwise, their merchandise will be subject to AD and CVD requirements. Methodology Commerce is conducting these anticircumvention inquiries in accordance with section 781(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Because China is a non-market economy, within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act,5 Commerce calculated the value of Chinese-origin input costs using prices of factors of production and market economy values, as discussed in section 773(c) of the Act. Because certain interested parties did not cooperate to the best of their abilities in responding to Commerce’s requests for information, we continue to base parts of our final determination on the facts available, with adverse inferences, pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.6 The Preliminary Decision Memorandum contains a full description of the methodology.7 We incorporate by reference this description of the methodology for our final determination. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in these inquiries are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised is attached to this notice as Appendix I. Based on our analysis of the comments received from interested of China: Initiation of Anti-Circumvention Inquiries on the Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Orders,’’ dated August 12, 2019. 5 See, e.g., Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Aluminum Foil from the People’s Republic of China: Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less-Than-Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 82 FR 50858, 50861 (November 2, 2017), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum at ‘‘China’s Status as a NonMarket Economy,’’ unchanged in Certain Aluminum Foil from the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 83 FR 9282 (March 5, 2018). 6 See Issues and Decision Memorandum. 7 See Memorandum, ‘‘Preliminary Decision Memorandum for the Anti-Circumvention Inquiries of the Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Orders on Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated February 7, 2020 (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jun 04, 2021 Jkt 253001 parties, we made no revisions to the Preliminary Determination with regard to our analysis under the anticircumvention factors of section 781(b) of the Act. We have made certain changes to the language in the certifications to provide guidance on who should complete the exporter certification, and to allow importers and exporters to clearly identify the parties involved in the sale(s) involving the export to the United States. Final Affirmative Determination of Circumvention We determine that exports to the United States of CORE completed in Malaysia from HRS and/or CRS substrate manufactured in China are circumventing the China CORE Orders. We therefore find it appropriate to determine that merchandise subject to these inquiries should be considered to be within the scope of the China CORE Orders, and to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to suspend liquidation of any entries of CORE completed in Malaysia using HRS and/or CRS substrate manufactured in China. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation As stated above, Commerce has made an affirmative determination of circumvention of the China CORE Orders by exports to the United States of CORE completed in Malaysia using Chinese-origin HRS and/or CRS substrate. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(1)(3), Commerce will direct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation and to require a cash deposit of estimated duties on unliquidated entries of CORE completed in Malaysia using Chinese-origin HRS and/or CRS substrate that were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 12, 2019, the date of initiation of these anticircumvention inquiries. The suspension of liquidation and cash deposit instructions will remain in effect until further notice. CORE produced in Malaysia from HRS or CRS substrate that is not of Chinese-origin is not subject to these inquiries. However, imports of such merchandise are subject to certification requirements, and cash deposits may be required if the certification requirements are not satisfied. Additionally, CORE completed in Malaysia from HRS and/or CRS from Taiwan also has been found to be circumventing the AD order on CORE from Taiwan and such merchandise is subject to similar certification PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 requirements.8 Accordingly, if an importer imports CORE produced in Malaysia and claims that the CORE was produced from non-Chinese HRS or CRS substrate, in order not to be subject to AD and/or CVD requirements, the importer and exporter are required to meet the certification and documentation requirements described in Appendices II, III, and IV. The party that made the sale to the United States should fill out the exporter certification. In the situation where no certification is provided for an entry, and AD/CVD orders on CORE from China or the AD order on CORE from Taiwan potentially apply to that entry, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to suspend liquidation of the entry and collect cash deposits at the rates applicable under the China CORE Orders (i.e., the AD rate established for the China-wide entity (199.43 percent) and the CVD rate established for all-other Chinese producers/exporters (39.05 percent)).9 This is to prevent evasion, given that the rates applicable to the AD/CVD orders on CORE from China are higher than the all-others rate established by the AD order on CORE from Taiwan. In the situation where a certification is provided for the AD/CVD orders on CORE from China (stating that the merchandise was not produced from HRS and/or CRS from China), but no other certification is provided, then Commerce intends to instruct CBP to suspend the entry and collect cash deposits at the AD all-others rate applicable under the AD order on CORE from Taiwan (i.e., 3.66 percent). Further, for this final determination, we continue to determine that the following companies are not eligible for the certification process: FIW Steel Sdn Bhd; Hsin Kuang Steel Co Ltd; Nippon EGalv Steel Sdn Bhd; NS BlueScope Malaysia Sdn Bhd; and YKGI/Yung Kong Galv. Ind/Starshine Holdings Sdn Bhd/ASTEEL Sdn. Bhd. (YKGI Group) (collectively non-responsive companies).10 Accordingly, importers of CORE from Malaysia produced and/or exported by these ineligible companies are similarly ineligible for the certification process with regard to imports of CORE produced by, or sourced from, these companies. Additionally, exporters are not eligible to certify shipments of merchandise 8 See Federal Register notice, ‘‘Certain Corrosion Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Affirmative Final Determination of Anti-Circumvention Inquiry on the Antidumping Duty Order,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. 9 See China CORE Orders. 10 See Preliminary Determination, 85 FR at 8823, and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 5 and 11. E:\FR\FM\07JNN1.SGM 07JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 107 / Monday, June 7, 2021 / Notices produced by the above-listed companies. Accordingly, CBP shall suspend the entry and collect cash deposits for entries of merchandise produced and/or exported by these nonresponsive companies at the AD rate established for the China-wide entity (199.43 percent) and the CVD rate established for all other Chinese producers and/or exporters (39.05 percent), pursuant to the China CORE Orders. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice will serve as the only reminder to all parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the destruction 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.

Agents of the importer, such as brokers, however, are not permitted to make this certification on behalf of the importer. The exporter of such merchandise is required to complete and maintain the exporter certification, attached as Appendix IV, and is further required to provide the importer a copy of that certification and all supporting documentation. The party that made the sale to the United States should fill out the exporter certification. For any such certifications completed on the date of publication of this final determination through 20 days after the date of publication, exporters and importers should use the certifications attached to the Preliminary Determination. For any such certifications completed on or after 21 days after the date of publication of this final determination, exporters and importers should use the certifications contained below that have changed from the certifications issued with the Preliminary Determination. For entries on or after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, for which certifications are required, importers should complete the required certification at or prior to the date of entry summary, and exporters should complete the required certification and provide it to the importer at or prior to the date of shipment. For all such entries made within the first 20 days after publication of this notice, exporters and importers should use the certifications attached to the Preliminary Determination. For all entries made on or after 21 days after publication of this notice, exporters and importers should use the certifications contained below that have changed from the certifications issued with the Preliminary Determination. The importer and exporter are also required to maintain sufficient documentation supporting their certifications. The importer will not be required to submit the certifications or supporting documentation to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as part of the entry process at this time. However, the importer and the exporter will be required to present the certifications and supporting documentation to Commerce and/or CBP, as applicable, upon request by the respective agency. Additionally, the claims made in the certifications and any supporting documentation are subject to verification by Commerce and/or CBP. The importer and exporter are required to maintain the certifications and supporting documentation for the later of: (1) A period of five years from the date of entry or (2) a period of three years after the conclusion of any litigation in United States courts regarding such entries. In the situation where no certification is maintained for an entry, and AD/CVD orders on CORE from China or the AD order on CORE from Taiwan potentially apply to that entry, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to suspend the entry and collect cash deposits at the rate applicable under the China CORE Orders (i.e., the AD rate established for the China-wide entity (199.43 percent) and the PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30265 CVD rate established for all-other Chinese producers/exporters (39.05 percent)).

Scope of the Anti-Circumvention Inquiries

    These anti-circumvention inquiries cover CORE completed in Malaysia 
from HRS and/or CRS substrate input manufactured in China and 
subsequently exported to the United States (merchandise subject to 
these inquiries). This final ruling applies to all shipments of 
merchandise subject to these inquiries entered on or after the date of 
the initiation of these inquiries.\4\

Importers and exporters of CORE produced in Malaysia using: (1) HRS 
manufactured in Malaysia or other third countries, (2) CRS manufactured 
in Malaysia using HRS produced in Malaysia or other third countries, or 
(3) CRS manufactured in other third countries, must certify that the 
HRS and/or CRS processed into CORE in Malaysia did not originate in 
China, as provided for in the certifications attached to this Federal 
Register notice. Otherwise, their merchandise will be subject to AD and 
CVD requirements.

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

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting these anti-circumvention inquiries in 
accordance with section 781(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act). Because China is a non-market economy, within the meaning of 
section 771(18) of the Act,\5\ Commerce calculated the value of 
Chinese-origin input costs using prices of factors of production and 
market economy values, as discussed in section 773(c) of the Act. 
Because certain interested parties did not cooperate to the best of 
their abilities in responding to Commerce's requests for information, 
we continue to base parts of our final determination on the facts 
available, with adverse inferences, pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) 
of the Act.\6\ The Preliminary Decision Memorandum contains a full 
description of the methodology.\7\ We incorporate by reference this 
description of the methodology for our final determination.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in 
these inquiries are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A 
list of the issues raised is attached to this notice as Appendix I.
    Based on our analysis of the comments received from interested 
parties, we made no revisions to the Preliminary Determination with 
regard to our analysis under the anti-circumvention factors of section 
781(b) of the Act. We have made certain changes to the language in the 
certifications to provide guidance on who should complete the exporter 
certification, and to allow importers and exporters to clearly identify 
the parties involved in the sale(s) involving the export to the United 
States.

Final Affirmative Determination of Circumvention

    We determine that exports to the United States of CORE completed in 
Malaysia from HRS and/or CRS substrate manufactured in China are 
circumventing the China CORE Orders. We therefore find it appropriate 
to determine that merchandise subject to these inquiries should be 
considered to be within the scope of the China CORE Orders, and to 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of any entries of CORE completed in Malaysia using 
HRS and/or CRS substrate manufactured in China.

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    As stated above, Commerce has made an affirmative determination of 
circumvention of the China CORE Orders by exports to the United States 
of CORE completed in Malaysia using Chinese-origin HRS and/or CRS 
substrate. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(1)(3), Commerce will 
direct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation and to require a cash 
deposit of estimated duties on unliquidated entries of CORE completed 
in Malaysia using Chinese-origin HRS and/or CRS substrate that were 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
August 12, 2019, the date of initiation of these anti-circumvention 
inquiries. The suspension of liquidation and cash deposit instructions 
will remain in effect until further notice.
    CORE produced in Malaysia from HRS or CRS substrate that is not of 
Chinese-origin is not subject to these inquiries. However, imports of 
such merchandise are subject to certification requirements, and cash 
deposits may be required if the certification requirements are not 
satisfied. Additionally, CORE completed in Malaysia from HRS and/or CRS 
from Taiwan also has been found to be circumventing the AD order on 
CORE from Taiwan and such merchandise is subject to similar 
certification requirements.\8\ Accordingly, if an importer imports CORE 
produced in Malaysia and claims that the CORE was produced from non-
Chinese HRS or CRS substrate, in order not to be subject to AD and/or 
CVD requirements, the importer and exporter are required to meet the 
certification and documentation requirements described in Appendices 
II, III, and IV. The party that made the sale to the United States 
should fill out the exporter certification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Federal Register notice, ``Certain Corrosion Resistant 
Steel Products from Taiwan: Affirmative Final Determination of Anti-
Circumvention Inquiry on the Antidumping Duty Order,'' dated 
concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the situation where no certification is provided for an entry, 
and AD/CVD orders on CORE from China or the AD order on CORE from 
Taiwan potentially apply to that entry, Commerce intends to instruct 
CBP to suspend liquidation of the entry and collect cash deposits at 
the rates applicable under the China CORE Orders (i.e., the AD rate 
established for the China-wide entity (199.43 percent) and the CVD rate 
established for all-other Chinese producers/exporters (39.05 
percent)).\9\ This is to prevent evasion, given that the rates 
applicable to the AD/CVD orders on CORE from China are higher than the 
all-others rate established by the AD order on CORE from Taiwan. In the 
situation where a certification is provided for the AD/CVD orders on 
CORE from China (stating that the merchandise was not produced from HRS 
and/or CRS from China), but no other certification is provided, then 
Commerce intends to instruct CBP to suspend the entry and collect cash 
deposits at the AD all-others rate applicable under the AD order on 
CORE from Taiwan (i.e., 3.66 percent).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See China CORE Orders.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Further, for this final determination, we continue to determine 
that the following companies are not eligible for the certification 
process: FIW Steel Sdn Bhd; Hsin Kuang Steel Co Ltd; Nippon EGalv Steel 
Sdn Bhd; NS BlueScope Malaysia Sdn Bhd; and YKGI/Yung Kong Galv. Ind/
Starshine Holdings Sdn Bhd/ASTEEL Sdn. Bhd. (YKGI Group) (collectively 
non-responsive companies).\10\ Accordingly, importers of CORE from 
Malaysia produced and/or exported by these ineligible companies are 
similarly ineligible for the certification process with regard to 
imports of CORE produced by, or sourced from, these companies. 
Additionally, exporters are not eligible to certify shipments of 
merchandise

[[Page 30265]]

produced by the above-listed companies. Accordingly, CBP shall suspend 
the entry and collect cash deposits for entries of merchandise produced 
and/or exported by these non-responsive companies at the AD rate 
established for the China-wide entity (199.43 percent) and the CVD rate 
established for all other Chinese producers and/or exporters (39.05 
percent), pursuant to the China CORE Orders.

Certification Requirements

    If an importer imports certain corrosion-resistant steel 
products (CORE) from Malaysia and claims that the CORE was not 
produced from hot-rolled steel and/or cold-rolled steel substrate 
(substrate) manufactured in the People's Republic of China (China), 
the importer is required to complete and maintain the importer 
certification attached hereto as Appendix III and all supporting 
documentation. Where the importer uses a broker to facilitate the 
entry process, it should obtain the entry summary number from the 
broker. Agents of the importer, such as brokers, however, are not 
permitted to make this certification on behalf of the importer.
    The exporter of such merchandise is required to complete and 
maintain the exporter certification, attached as Appendix IV, and is 
further required to provide the importer a copy of that 
certification and all supporting documentation. The party that made 
the sale to the United States should fill out the exporter 
certification.
    For any such certifications completed on the date of publication 
of this final determination through 20 days after the date of 
publication, exporters and importers should use the certifications 
attached to the Preliminary Determination. For any such 
certifications completed on or after 21 days after the date of 
publication of this final determination, exporters and importers 
should use the certifications contained below that have changed from 
the certifications issued with the Preliminary Determination.
    For entries on or after the date of publication of this notice 
in the Federal Register, for which certifications are required, 
importers should complete the required certification at or prior to 
the date of entry summary, and exporters should complete the 
required certification and provide it to the importer at or prior to 
the date of shipment. For all such entries made within the first 20 
days after publication of this notice, exporters and importers 
should use the certifications attached to the Preliminary 
Determination. For all entries made on or after 21 days after 
publication of this notice, exporters and importers should use the 
certifications contained below that have changed from the 
certifications issued with the Preliminary Determination.
    The importer and exporter are also required to maintain 
sufficient documentation supporting their certifications. The 
importer will not be required to submit the certifications or 
supporting documentation to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
as part of the entry process at this time. However, the importer and 
the exporter will be required to present the certifications and 
supporting documentation to Commerce and/or CBP, as applicable, upon 
request by the respective agency. Additionally, the claims made in 
the certifications and any supporting documentation are subject to 
verification by Commerce and/or CBP. The importer and exporter are 
required to maintain the certifications and supporting documentation 
for the later of: (1) A period of five years from the date of entry 
or (2) a period of three years after the conclusion of any 
litigation in United States courts regarding such entries.
    In the situation where no certification is maintained for an 
entry, and AD/CVD orders on CORE from China or the AD order on CORE 
from Taiwan potentially apply to that entry, Commerce intends to 
instruct CBP to suspend the entry and collect cash deposits at the 
rate applicable under the China CORE Orders (i.e., the AD rate 
established for the China-wide entity (199.43 percent) and the CVD 
rate established for all-other Chinese producers/exporters (39.05 
percent)). In the situation where a certification is provided for 
the AD/CVD orders on CORE from China (stating that the merchandise 
was not produced from HRS and/or CRS from China), but no other 
certification is provided, then Commerce intends to instruct CBP to 
suspend the entry and collect cash deposits at the AD all-others 
rate applicable under the AD order on CORE from Taiwan (i.e., 
3.66%).
