Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 47474 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 162 / Wednesday, August 25, 2021 / Notices sheet within the scope of the orders includes both not clad aluminum sheet, as well as multi-alloy, clad aluminum sheet. With respect to not clad aluminum sheet, common alloy sheet is manufactured from a 1XXX-, 3XXX-, or 5XXX-series alloy as designated by the Aluminum Association. With respect to multi-alloy, clad aluminum sheet, common alloy sheet is produced from a 3XXX-series core, to which cladding layers are applied to either one or both sides of the core. Common alloy sheet may be made to ASTM specification B209–14, but can also be made to other specifications. Regardless of specification, however, all common alloy sheet meeting the scope description is included in the scope. Subject merchandise includes common alloy sheet that has been further processed in a third country, including but not limited to annealing, tempering, painting, varnishing, trimming, cutting, punching, and/or slitting, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the orders if performed in the country of manufacture of the common alloy sheet. Excluded from the scope of the orders is aluminum can stock, which is suitable for use in the manufacture of aluminum beverage cans, lids of such cans, or tabs used to open such cans. Aluminum can stock is produced to gauges that range from 0.200 mm to 0.292 mm, and has an H–19, H–41, H– 48, or H–391 temper. In addition, aluminum can stock has a lubricant applied to the flat surfaces of the can stock to facilitate its manufacture of beverage cans. Aluminum can stock is properly classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7606.12.3045 and 7606.12.3055. Where the nominal and actual measurements vary, a product is within the scope if application of either the nominal or actual measurement would place it within the scope based on the definitions set for the above. Common alloy sheet is currently classifiable under HTSUS subheadings 7606.11.3060, 7606.11.6000, 7606.12.3090, 7606.12.6000, 7606.91.3090, 7606.91.3095, 7606.91.6080, 7606.91.6095, 7606.92.3090, 7606.92.3035, 7606.92.6080, and 7606.92.6095.

A full description of the scope of the Order is contained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.6 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs filed by interested parties in this review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues that parties raised, and to which we responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, follows as an appendix to this notice.

ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. Rate for Non-Selected Respondent We preliminarily applied a rate based on the rate calculated for the only company not selected for individual examination, Ambica Steels Limited (Ambica), in the 2018–2019 administrative review (i.e., 0.00). No party commented on the Preliminary Results regarding the rate for the nonselected company. Therefore, for these final results, we continue to assign 0.00 percent to Ambica. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we did not make changes to the Preliminary Results. Use of Adverse Facts Available Pursuant to sections 776(a) and 776(b) of the Act, Commerce continues to base the Venus Group’s dumping margin on total AFA because it failed to provide information requested by the applicable deadlines. For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we have continued to apply an AFA rate of 30.92 percent to the Venus Group. Final Results of Administrative Review As a result of this administrative review, Commerce determines that the following dumping margin exists for the period February 1, 2019, through January 31, 2020: Dumping margin (percent) Producer/exporter khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Precision Metals, and its affiliated companies including Hindustan Inox, Precision Metals and Sieves Manufacturers (India) Pvt.

Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 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 final results of this review. Commerce will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 30.92 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR from the Venus Group. Because the rate assigned to Ambica is zero,7 Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.8 Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no Review; 2019–2020; 86 FR 11235 (February 24, 2021), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum (Preliminary Results). 2 See Venus Group’s Letter, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Investigation of Stainless Steel Bar from India— Venus Group Case Brief,’’ dated March 26, 2021. 3 Carpenter Technology Corporation, Crucible Industries LLC, Electralloy, a Division of G.O.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs filed by 
interested parties in this review are addressed in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues that parties raised, and to 
which we responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, follows as an 
appendix to this notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public 
document and is made available to the public electronically via 
Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to 
registered users at http://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete 
version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly 
on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/.

Rate for Non-Selected Respondent

    We preliminarily applied a rate based on the rate calculated for 
the only company not selected for individual examination, Ambica Steels 
Limited (Ambica), in the 2018-2019 administrative review (i.e., 0.00). 
No party commented on the Preliminary Results regarding the rate for 
the non-selected company. Therefore, for these final results, we 
continue to assign 0.00 percent to Ambica.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the 
reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we did not 
make changes to the Preliminary Results.

Use of Adverse Facts Available

    Pursuant to sections 776(a) and 776(b) of the Act, Commerce 
continues to base the Venus Group's dumping margin on total AFA because 
it failed to provide information requested by the applicable deadlines. 
For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we 
have continued to apply an AFA rate of 30.92 percent to the Venus 
Group.

Final Results of Administrative Review

    As a result of this administrative review, Commerce determines that 
the following dumping margin exists for the period February 1, 2019, 
through January 31, 2020:

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

Precision Metals, and its affiliated companies including           30.92
 Hindustan Inox, Precision Metals and Sieves
 Manufacturers (India) Pvt. Ltd.........................
Rate Applicable to the Following Non-Selected Company:
    Ambica Steels Limited...............................            0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce discloses the calculations performed in 
connection with final results of an administrative review within five 
days of any public announcement or, if there is no public announcement, 
within five days of the date of publication of this notice of final 
results in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). 
However, because Commerce applied total AFA to the only mandatory 
respondent under review in accordance with section 776 of the Act, 
there are no calculations to disclose to any interested party.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
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 final results of this review. 
Commerce will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 
30.92 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR from 
the Venus Group. Because the rate assigned to Ambica is zero,\7\ 
Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ In the Preliminary Results, Commerce inadvertently stated 
``. . . , we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment 
rate of 30.92 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during 
the POR from the Venus Group and Ambica.'' See Preliminary Results. 
We intended to state that we will instruct CBP to apply an ad 
valorem assessment of 30.92 percent to the Venus Group, and instruct 
CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries for Ambica without regard 
to antidumping duties.
    \8\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 
2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 in the Federal Register of this notice for all shipments of 
SS Bar entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the date of publication as provided by section

[[Page 47476]]

751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for the companies 
subject to this review will be equal to the dumping margin established 
in the final results of the review; (2) for merchandise exported by

Notification to Importers

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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of 
doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility

disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties
