Disclosure Normally, Commerce discloses the calculations performed in its analysis to parties in a review within five days of the date of publication of the notice of final results, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, because Commerce applied a rate based on total AFA to the mandatory respondent in this review, in accordance with section 776 of the Act, there are no calculations to disclose. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (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 covered by this review. We intend to issue appropriate 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).17 For the final results, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate equal to the dumping margins shown above to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported by Chandan or exported by the companies which were not selected for individual examination. We intend to instruct CBP to take into account the ‘‘provisional measures deposit cap,’’ in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(d). jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 14 See Stainless Steel Flanges from India: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final Affirmative Critical Circumstance Determination, 83 FR 40745 (August 16, 2018). 15 See Appendix II. 16 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 4. 17 See Notice of Discontinuation of Policy to Issue Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 15, 2021).

Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

    Normally, Commerce discloses the calculations performed in its 
analysis to parties in a review within five days of the date of 
publication of the notice of final results, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b). However, because Commerce applied a rate based on total AFA 
to the mandatory respondent in this review, in accordance with section 
776 of the Act, there are no calculations to disclose.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (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 covered by this review. We intend to 
issue appropriate 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).\17\

Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 
15, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the final results, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem 
assessment rate equal to the dumping margins shown above to all entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or 
exported by Chandan or exported by the companies which were not 
selected for individual examination. We intend to instruct CBP to take 
into account the ``provisional measures deposit cap,'' in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(d).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice 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, as provided for by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash 
deposit rate for Chandan and the companies not individually examined 
will be equal to the rates established in the final results of this 
administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or 
exporters not covered by this review but covered by 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; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered by this review or 
the original less-than-fair-value (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; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers or exporters will continue to be 14.29 percent,\18\ the all-
others rate established in the LTFV investigation. These cash 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) 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction 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 
terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: August 20, 2021.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Negotiations.
