Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the allothers rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ‘‘an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the basis of facts available}.’’ We preliminarily calculated a 0.77 percent dumping margin for Gupta and a 4.38 percent dumping margin for the Norma Group, the mandatory respondents in this review, and we have assigned to the non-selected companies a rate of 2.25 percent, which is the weighted-average of Gupta’s and the Norma Group’s margins based on public data.10 For additional information, see 8 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India; 2019–2020,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 9 For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 10 See, e.g., Xanthan Gum from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, and Partial Rescission; 2018–2019, 85 FR 75686, 74687 (November 23, 2020); Albemarle Corp. v.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for 
individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an 
administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act). Generally, Commerce looks to section 
735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the 
all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when 
calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for 
individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 
735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ``an amount 
equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted average dumping 
margins established for exporters and producers individually 
investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins 
determined entirely {on the basis of facts available{time} .''
    We preliminarily calculated a 0.77 percent dumping margin for Gupta 
and a 4.38 percent dumping margin for the Norma Group, the mandatory 
respondents in this review, and we have assigned to the non-selected 
companies a rate of 2.25 percent, which is the weighted-average of 
Gupta's and the Norma Group's margins based on public data.\10\ For 
additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file 
electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS).

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213(h)(2), Commerce intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues 
raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of 
publication of this notice, unless extended.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act; see also 19 CFR 
351.213(h).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered 
by this review.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above 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 duty assessment rates based on the ratio 
of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined 
sales to the total entered value of the examined sales to that 
importer, and we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all

[[Page 50050]]

appropriate entries covered by this review. For entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by each 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.\18\ Where either the individually-selected respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-
specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ For a full discussion of this clarification, see 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
intend to assign an assessment rate based on the methodology described 
in the ``Rates for Non-Examined Companies'' section. The final results 
of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping 
duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review where 
applicable.
    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 deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for the companies under review will be the rate established in the 
final results of this review, except if the rate is de minimis within 
the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1) (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), in 
which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for merchandise 
exported by manufacturers 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; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recently completed segment for the manufacturer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 8.91 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\19\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

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

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 the Secretary'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 results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: August 31, 2021.
James Maeder,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
