Therefore, in this administrative review, Commerce continues to collapse these four entities and treat them as a single entity. 12 The name of this company was incorrected spelled ‘‘CHQ Forge Pvt.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, and for the reasons 
explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, Commerce made certain 
changes to the preliminary weighted-average dumping margin for Gupta.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that Silbo 
had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. We received no 
comments from interested parties regarding that preliminary 
determination, nor did we receive any record evidence that would call 
into question our preliminary determination of no shipments. 
Accordingly, for these final results, we continue to determine that 
Silbo had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. 
Consistent with Commerce's practice,\9\ we intend to instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate any existing entries 
of subject merchandise produced by Silbo, but exported by other 
parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at 
the all-others rate.\10\

Rate for Non-Selected Respondents

    For the companies that were not selected for individual review, we 
assigned a rate based on the rates for the respondents that were 
selected for individual examination.\13\ Consistent with the U.S. Court 
of Appeals for the Federal Circuit's decision in Albemarle, we are 
applying to the 33 companies not selected for individual examination 
the zero percent rates calculated for the mandatory respondents, Gupta 
and the Norma Group.\14\ These are the only rates determined in this 
review for individual respondents and, thus, should be applied to the 
33 firms not selected for individual examination under section 
735(c)(5)(B) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ In the preliminary determination of sales at less-than-fair 
value (LTFV) investigation, Commerce determined that Norma (India), 
Limited, USK Exports Private Limited, Uma Shanker Khandelwal & Co., 
and Bansidhar Chiranjilal) were a single entity (collectively 
``Norma Group''). See Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: 
Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Postponement of Final Determination, 82 FR 9719 (February 8, 2017), 
and accompanying PDM at 4-5; unchanged in Finished Carbon Steel 
Flanges from India: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value, 82 FR 29483 (June 29, 2017). In this administrative review, 
Norma Group has presented evidence that the factual basis on which 
Commerce made its prior determination has not changed. See Norma 
Group's July 23, 2020 Supplemental Questionnaire Response at 2-9. 
Therefore, in this administrative review, Commerce continues to 
collapse these four entities and treat them as a single entity.
    \12\ The name of this company was incorrected spelled ``CHQ 
Forge Pvt. Ltd.'' in the Preliminary Results. See Initiation Notice. 
We have corrected the spelling of this company's name for purposes 
of these final results.
    \13\ See section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.
    \14\ See Albemarle Corp. v. United States, 821 F.3d 1345 (Fed. 
Cir. 2016) (Albemarle).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    Commerce intends to disclose the calculations performed for these 
final results to parties in this proceeding within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine and CBP shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. Because the weighted-average dumping margins of Gupta, the 
Norma Group, and the 33 firms not selected for individual examination 
have been determined to be zero percent within the meaning of 19 CFR 
351.106(c), we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties. In accordance with Commerce's 
practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which 
Gupta and the Norma Group did not know that the merchandise was 
destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate such 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no company-specific rate for 
the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with its recent notice,\16\ 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

[[Page 33228]]

expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See Notice of Discontinuation of Policy to Issue 
Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duly Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 
15, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 rates for the reviewed companies will be 
the rates established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not 
covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior 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 
LTFV investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent segment of this proceeding for 
the producer of the subject merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for 
all other producers or exporters will continue to be 8.91 percent,\17\ 
the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ In the Preliminary Results, Commerce inadvertently listed 
as the all-others rate the estimated weighted-average dumping margin 
from the antidumping duty order on carbon steel flanges from India. 
See Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Final Determination of 
Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 82 FR 29483 (June 29, 2017); see also 
Order, 82 FR at 40136. We have revised our reference to the all-
others rate to reflect the cash deposit rate, adjusted for subsidy 
offsets, as stated in the Order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 and/or countervailing 
duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce's 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or 
countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order (APO)

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to APO of 
their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary 
information disclosed under 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 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 sanctionable 
violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h) and 
351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: June 17, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
