Verification Because the sole mandatory respondent in this investigation, Vestas India, did not cooperate in this investigation by failing to file a complete response to Commerce’s supplemental section D questionnaire by the established deadline, Commerce reached the Preliminary Determination entirely on the basis of facts available with the application of adverse inferences (AFA). As such, because the Preliminary Determination was based entirely on AFA, we did not conduct a verification. Use of Adverse Facts Available In the Preliminary Determination, Commerce found that the mandatory respondent, Vestas India, did not cooperate in this investigation by failing to file a complete response to Commerce’s supplemental section D questionnaire by the established deadline. We also found that five other companies did not cooperate in this investigation by failing to provide timely responses to Commerce’s quantity and value (Q&V) questionnaire. These companies are: Acciona Wind Power India Pvt. Ltd.; Nordex India Pvt. 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Affirmative Determination in the Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of Utility Scale Wind Towers from India,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum).

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the 
reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we did not 
make changes to the preliminary calculation of the weighted-average 
dumping margin for the mandatory respondent, Hyundai Steel Company 
(Hyundai Steel), and the margin assigned to non-selected respondents.

Final Results of the Review

    Commerce determines the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist for the respondents for the period February 1, 2019, through 
January 31, 2020:

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

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 
Protections (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review. For the individually examined respondent, Hyundai Steel, 
whose weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., 
less than 0.50 percent), we calculated importer-specific ad valorem 
duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for each importer's examined sales and the total entered 
value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    For all non-selected respondents identified above, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate all entries of subject merchandise that entered the 
United States during the POR at the rates listed above.
    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Hyundai Steel 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.
    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 publication, 
as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit 
rate for companies subject to this review will be equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results of 
the review; (2) for merchandise exported by companies not covered in 
this review but covered in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published 
for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a prior 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 
for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash

[[Page 56890]]

deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 
0.98 percent,\5\ the all-others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation, adjusted for the export-subsidy rate in the companion 
countervailing duty 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)(2) 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 the Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (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/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 subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are 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)(5).
