In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.17 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.

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.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\14\ If the weighted 
average dumping margin for DOSCO or HiSteel is not zero or de minimis 
(i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will calculate importer-specific ad 
valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for each importer's examined sales 
to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1).\15\ Where the respondent did not report entered 
value, we will calculate the entered value in order to calculate the 
assessment rate. If the weighted-average dumping margin for the 
respondents listed above is zero or de minimis in the final results, or 
an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final 
results, we will instruct CBP not to assess antidumping duties on any 
of their entries in accordance with the Final Modification for 
Reviews.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    \15\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for 
Reviews).

    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in 
these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not 
know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a 
reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date 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 the exporters 
listed above 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 companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit 
rate will

[[Page 55584]]

continue to be the company-specific cash deposit rate published for the 
most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm 
covered in this review, or a previous segment, but the producer is, 
then the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established 
for the most recently completed segment for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 3.24 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\18\ These 
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

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

    Dated: September 30, 2021.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
