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). For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), upon completion of the final results, Commerce will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of sales. Where we do not have entered values for all U.S. sales to a particular importer/customer, we will calculate a per-unit assessment rate by aggregating the antidumping duties due for all U.S. sales to that importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total quantity sold to that importer (or customer).13 To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculate importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered value. Where either a respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- (or customer) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.14 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each individually examined respondent for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we 6 See 7 See PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act; and 19 CFR 351.213(h). 13 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 14 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).

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).
    For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), upon 
completion of the final results, Commerce will calculate importer-
specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount 
of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of sales. Where we do not have entered values for all 
U.S. sales to a particular importer/customer, we will calculate a per-
unit assessment rate by aggregating the antidumping duties due for all 
U.S. sales to that importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by 
the total quantity sold to that importer (or customer).\13\ To 
determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in 
accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we 
calculate importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem ratios based on 
the estimated entered value. Where either a respondent's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- (or 
customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\14\

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each 
individually examined respondent 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 if 
there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction. The final results of this review shall be the basis for 
the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered 
by the final results of this review and for future deposits of 
estimated duties, where applicable.\15\

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 the date of publication 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 Bothwell will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final 
results of this 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 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 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; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 116.17 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\16\ 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

    These preliminary results are being issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: August 24, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
