SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) preliminarily finds that certain cold-rolled steel flat products (cold-rolled steel) from the Republic of Korea were not sold in the United States at less than normal value during the period of review (POR), September 1, 2019, through August 31, 2020. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Applicable October 6, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael J. Heaney, George McMahon, or Marc Castillo, AD/CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4475, (202) 482–1167, or (202) 482–5019, respectively. AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Commerce initiated this review on October 30, 2020.1 We selected two mandatory respondents in this review, Hyundai Steel Company (Hyundai) and POSCO International Corporation (PIC).2 For a more detailed description of the events that followed the initiation of this review, see the Preliminary 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 68840 (October 30, 2020). 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘2019–2020 Administrative Review of Cold-Rolled Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: Respondent Selection,’’ dated December 15, 2020. Consistent with the CRS from Korea 2018–19 Final Results, Commerce has collapsed POSCO and PIC, treating these companies as a single entity. In the CRS from Korea 2018–19 Final Results, Commerce determined that PIC is the successor-in-interest to POSCO Daewoo Corporation (PDW), and, as a consequence, is part of the collapsed POSCO single entity. See Certain Cold-Rolled Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2018–2019, 86 FR 40808 (July 29, 2021) (CRS from Korea 2018–19 Final Results), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. POSCO submitted its questionnaire responses in this review on behalf of the collapsed entity, and PIC was initially selected by Commerce for individual examination. We continue to refer to the collapsed entity as ‘‘POSCO/PIC’’ hereafter.

Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Rate for Non-Examined Companies For the companies that were not selected for individual review, we assigned a rate based on the rates for the respondents that were selected for individual examination.5 Consistent with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit’s decision in Albemarle, we are applying to the 38 companies not selected for individual examination a rate of zero percent, because we calculated rates of zero for both mandatory respondents, Hyundai and POSCO/PIC.6 These are the only rates determined in this review for individually examined respondents and, thus, we are applying this rate to the 38 firms not selected for individual examination under section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Cold Rolled Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea; 2019– 2020,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 4 See Certain Cold Rolled Steel Flat Products from Brazil, India, the Republic of Korea, and the United Kingdom: Amended Final Affirmative Antidumping Determinations for Brazil and the United Kingdom and Antidumping Duty Orders, 81 FR 64432 (September 20, 2016) (Order). 5 See section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act. 6 See Albemarle Corp. v.

Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the issues raised in any case or rebuttal briefs, no later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, unless extended.14 Assessment Rates Upon issuing the final results, Commerce shall determine, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.15 If the weightedaverage dumping margin for an individually examined respondent is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate importerspecific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of such sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).16 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent). For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, or if an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.17 In accordance with Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice,18 for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Hyundai and POSCO/PIC for which the producer did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate of 20.33 percent established in the LTFV investigation.19 13 See 19 CFR 351.310(d). section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h). 15 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 16 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 2012). 17 Id., 77 FR at 8102–3; see also 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 18 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 19 See Order. 14 See PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55585 For the 38 companies which were not selected for individual examination,20 we intend to assign an assessment rate based on the cash deposit rate calculated for the companies selected for mandatory review (i.e., Hyundai and POSCO/PIC).21 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.22 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 of the notice of final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Hyundai, POSCO/PIC, and other companies listed in the final results of review will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative review; (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, a prior review, or the original 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 20.33 percent,23 the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.

Certain Cold-Rolled Steel Flat Products From the Republic of 
Korea: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 
2019-2020

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) preliminarily finds that 
certain cold-rolled steel flat products (cold-rolled steel) from the 
Republic of Korea were not sold in the United States at less than 
normal value during the period of review (POR), September 1, 2019, 
through August 31, 2020. Interested parties are invited to comment on 
these preliminary results.

DATES: Applicable October 6, 2021.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael J. Heaney, George McMahon, or 
Marc Castillo, AD/CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and 
Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of 
Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 
(202) 482-4475, (202) 482-1167, or (202) 482-5019, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Commerce initiated this review on October 30, 2020.\1\ We selected 
two mandatory respondents in this review, Hyundai Steel Company 
(Hyundai) and POSCO International Corporation (PIC).\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 68840 (October 30, 2020).
    \2\ See Memorandum, ``2019-2020 Administrative Review of Cold-
Rolled Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: Respondent 
Selection,'' dated December 15, 2020. Consistent with the CRS from 
Korea 2018-19 Final Results, Commerce has collapsed POSCO and PIC, 
treating these companies as a single entity. In the CRS from Korea 
2018-19 Final Results, Commerce determined that PIC is the 
successor-in-interest to POSCO Daewoo Corporation (PDW), and, as a 
consequence, is part of the collapsed POSCO single entity. See 
Certain Cold-Rolled Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: 
Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2018-2019, 
86 FR 40808 (July 29, 2021) (CRS from Korea 2018-19 Final Results), 
and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. POSCO submitted its 
questionnaire responses in this review on behalf of the collapsed 
entity, and PIC was initially selected by Commerce for individual 
examination. We continue to refer to the collapsed entity as 
``POSCO/PIC'' hereafter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For a more detailed description of the events that followed the 
initiation of this review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, 
dated concurrently with these results and hereby adopted by this 
notice.\3\ 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). 
ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov. In 
addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can 
be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. A list of 
topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as 
Appendix I to this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary 
Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Cold 
Rolled Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea; 2019-2020,'' 
dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice 
(Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the Order \4\ is cold-rolled steel from 
Korea. For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Certain Cold Rolled Steel Flat Products from Brazil, 
India, the Republic of Korea, and the United Kingdom: Amended Final 
Affirmative Antidumping Determinations for Brazil and the United 
Kingdom and Antidumping Duty Orders, 81 FR 64432 (September 20, 
2016) (Order).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For a full 
description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Examined Companies

    For the companies that were not selected for individual review, we 
assigned a rate based on the rates for the respondents that were 
selected for individual examination.\5\ Consistent with the U.S. Court 
of Appeals for the Federal Circuit's decision in Albemarle, we are 
applying to the 38 companies not selected for individual examination a 
rate of zero percent, because we calculated rates of zero for both 
mandatory respondents, Hyundai and POSCO/PIC.\6\ These are the only 
rates determined in this review for individually examined respondents 
and, thus, we are applying this rate to the 38 firms not selected for 
individual examination under section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

Cir. 2016) (Albemarle).

whether any participant is a foreign national; and (4) a list of issues 
parties intend to discuss. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited 
to those raised in the respective case and rebuttal briefs. If a 
request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at 
a date and time to be determined.\13\ Parties should confirm the date, 
time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of its analysis of the issues raised in 
any case or rebuttal briefs, no later than 120 days after the date of 
publication of this notice, unless extended.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries.\15\ If the weighted-average dumping margin for 
an individually examined respondent is not zero or de minimis (i.e., 
less than 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we will 
calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio 
of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer's examined 
sales and the total entered value of such sales in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1).\16\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the 
importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of 
this review is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent). For any 
individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin 
is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, or if an 
importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, Commerce will 
instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 
2012).

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

    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' 
practice,\18\ for entries of subject merchandise during the POR 
produced by Hyundai and POSCO/PIC for which the producer did not know 
its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate of 20.33 
percent established in the LTFV investigation.\19\

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

    For the 38 companies which were not selected for individual 
examination,\20\ we intend to assign an assessment rate based on the 
cash deposit rate calculated for the companies selected for mandatory 
review (i.e., Hyundai and POSCO/PIC).\21\ 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.\22\

    \21\ See section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act; see also Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum at Section IV, ``Rate for Non-Examined 
Companies.

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

    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 of the notice of final results of this administrative 
review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The 
cash deposit rate for Hyundai, POSCO/PIC, and other companies listed in 
the final results of review will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (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, a prior review, or the original 
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 
20.33 percent,\23\ the all-others rate established in the less-than-
fair-value investigation. These cash deposit

requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a 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

    Commerce is issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: September 30, 2021.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
