Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative 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). If SNCZ’s weighted-average dumping margin is not de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), upon completion of the final results, Commerce intends to calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those sales. Where we do not have entered values for all U.S. sales to a particular importer, we will calculate an importer-specific, per-unit assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total quantity of those sales.5 To determine whether an importerspecific, per-unit assessment rate is de minimis, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we also will calculate an importer-specific ad valorem ratio based on estimated entered values. Where either SNCZ’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.6 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by SNCZ for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the all-others rate 7 if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.8 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 5 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 6 See 19 CFR 352.106(c)(2); see also Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 2012). 7 See Order. 8 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as

Preliminary Results of the Review

    We preliminarily determine that the following weighted-average 
dumping margin exists for the period May 17, 2019, through October 31, 
2020:

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 
no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of the final 
results of this administrative 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).
    If SNCZ's weighted-average dumping margin is not de minimis (i.e., 
less than 0.50 percent), upon completion of the final results, Commerce 
intends to calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those sales. Where we do 
not have entered values for all U.S. sales to a particular importer, we 
will calculate an importer-specific, per-unit assessment rate on the 
basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the 
importer's examined sales to the total quantity of those sales.\5\ To 
determine whether an importer-specific, per-unit assessment rate is de 
minimis, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we also will 
calculate an importer-specific ad valorem ratio based on estimated 
entered values. Where either SNCZ's weighted-average dumping margin is 
zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate 
is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.\6\ For entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by SNCZ for which it did not know 
its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the all-others rate \7\ if there is no 
rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.\8\

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 date of publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for SNCZ will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final 
results of this review (except, if that rate is de minimis, then the 
cash deposit rate will be zero); (2) for merchandise exported by 
producers or exporters not covered in this 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 recently-completed 
segment of this proceeding in which they were reviewed; (3) if the 
exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the underlying LTFV 
investigation but the producer is, then 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 
32.16 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation.\10\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Final Results of Review

    Unless otherwise extended, Commerce intends to issue the final 
results of this administrative review, including the results of its 
analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 
days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

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

accordance with
