Citric Acid and Certain Citrate Salts From Belgium: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2019-2020, 38681-38683 [2021-15583]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 138 / Thursday, July 22, 2021 / Notices Disclosure We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these amended final results in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the amended final results of this review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where Dongkuk 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. Where Dongkuk did not report entered value, we calculated the entered value in order to calculate the assessment rate. Where either Dongkuk’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 average of the cash deposit rates calculated for Dongkuk and Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd.5 The amended final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the amended final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review 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. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain CorrosionResistant Steel Products from the Republic of Korea: Amended Final Results Calculation for All Others,’’ dated concurrently with this Federal Register notice. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Jul 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 We intend to issue liquidation instructions for Dongkuk and the companies covered by the non-reviewed companies’ rate to CBP 35 days after publication of these amended final results of this administrative review. 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 the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after May 27, 2021, the date of 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 each specific company listed above will be that established in the amended final results; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies, including those for which Commerce may have determined had no shipments during the POR, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific 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 or an earlier review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any previously completed segment of this proceeding, then the cash deposit rate will be the all-others rate of 8.31 percent established in the LTFV investigation.6 These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. 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 prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that 6 See Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products From the Republic of Korea: Notice of Court Decision Not in Harmony With Final Determination of Investigation and Notice of Amended Final Results, 83 FR 39054 (August 8, 2018).

any the written briefs, no later than 120 days after the date of 
publication of this notice, unless otherwise extended.\13\

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If the weighted-average 
dumping margin for Citrique Belge (i.e., the sole individually-examined 
respondent in this review) is not zero or de minimis (i.e., greater 
than or equal to 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, we 
will calculate importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates for the 
merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the examined sales made during the POR to each importer 
and the total entered value of those same sales, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific ad valorem assessment 
rate is zero or de minimis in the final results of the review, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\14\ If a respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de

minimis in the final results of the review, we will instruct CBP not to 
assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final 
Modification for Reviews, i.e., ``{w{time} here the weighted-average 
margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de 
minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.'' \15\

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Citrique Belge for which the producer did not know its merchandise was 
destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company (or companies) involved in the transaction.\16\

Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review 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 Citrique Belge 
will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the 
final results of this administrative 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 which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; 
(2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific 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, a prior review, or in the investigation but the 
producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the 
most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of 
the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers 
or exporters will continue to be the all-others rate of 19.30 percent, 
the rate established in the investigation of this proceeding.\17\ These 
cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary 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 to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: July 16, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
