Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain 
changes to the calculation of the preliminary weighted-average dumping 
margin for NEXTEEL.\7\ These changes, however, did not result in a 
change to the weighted-average dumping margin calculated for NEXTEEL 
from the Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 3. We made no changes 
to the calculation of SeAH's preliminary weighted-average dumping 
margin.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we determine the following weighted-
average dumping margins for the period December 1, 2018, through 
November 30, 2019:

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

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

Review-Specific Rate for Companies Not Selected for Individual Review
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ 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 examined, excluding any margins that are 
zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on 
the basis of facts available{time} .'' For these final results, we 
have calculated weighted-average dumping margins for NEXTEEL and 
SeAH that are zero or de minimis, and we have not calculated any 
margins which are not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely on 
the basis of facts available. Accordingly, we have assigned to the 
companies not individually examined a margin of zero percent. The 
exporters/producers subject to this review, but not selected for 
individual review, are listed in Appendix II.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The dumping margins for the exporters/producers not selected for 
individual review are listed in Appendix II.

Disclosure of Calculations

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for NEXTEEL in 
connection with these final results to interested parties within five 
days of the date of publication of this notice, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, 
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.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), NEXTEEL reported the entered 
value of its U.S. sales such that we calculated importer-specific ad 
valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of 
the sales for which entered value was reported. SeAH did not report 
actual entered value for all of its U.S. sales; in such instances, we 
calculated importer-specific per-unit duty assessment rates by 
aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the 
examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity of those 
sales. Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is 
zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), 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.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, 
because we are assigning these companies an assessment rate based on 
the deposit rate calculated for NEXTEEL and SeAH,\9\ we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties. 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.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See supra at n.11.
    \10\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice will apply to entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by NEXTEEL or SeAH 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.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with its recent notice,\12\ 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).

Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 884 (January

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 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 each specific 
company listed above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping 
margin

[[Page 58255]]

that is 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 previously investigated or reviewed companies not 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding in which the company participated; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-value 
(LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate 
will be the cash deposit rate established for the most recently 
completed segment for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will 
continue to be 4.38 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
LTFV investigation.\13\ These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Order.

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 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.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition 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 return/destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: October 15, 2021.
Ryan Majerus,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Negotiations, Performing the 
Non-Exclusive Functions and Duties of the Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance.
