Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in 
this investigation are discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, 
which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues raised in 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this notice as 
Appendix II.

Changes From the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received from interested 
parties, we made certain changes to the dumping margin calculations for 
PT. Asia Pacific Fibers Tbk (Asia Pacific), PT. Mutu Gading Tekstil 
(Mutu Gading), and the All-Others rate. For a discussion of these 
changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Use of Facts Available and Adverse Facts Available

    We find that the use of facts available is warranted in determining 
the rate for mandatory respondent PT. Polyfin Canggih (Polyfin), 
pursuant to sections 776(a)(1) and (2)(A)-(C) of the Act, and the rate 
for mandatory respondent Asia Pacific, pursuant to sections 776(a)(1) 
and (2)(A)-(D) of the Act.\6\ Further, use of adverse facts available 
is warranted with respect to Polyfin and Asia Pacific because these two 
mandatory respondents did not cooperate to the best of their ability to 
comply with our requests for information and, accordingly, we applied 
adverse inferences in selecting from the facts available, pursuant to 
section 776(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.308(a).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at ``Use of Adverse Facts 
Available.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

All-Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margin for all other producers and exporters 
not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding rates that 
are zero, de minimis, or determined entirely under section 776 of the 
Act.
    Commerce calculated an individual estimated weighted-average 
dumping margin for Mutu Gading but is using an

[[Page 58876]]

adverse facts available rate for Asia Pacific and Polyfin. Therefore, 
the only rate which is not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely 
under section 776 of the Act is the rate calculated for Mutu Gading. 
Consequently, the rate calculated for Mutu Gading is also assigned as 
the rate for all other producers and exporters.

Final Determination

    Commerce determines that the following estimated weighted-average 
dumping margins exist:

Disclosure

    Commerce intends to disclose its calculations and analysis 
performed to interested parties in this final determination within five 
days of any public announcement or, if there is no public announcement, 
within five days of the date of publication of this notice in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, Commerce will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all entries of polyester textured yarn from 
Indonesia, as described in Appendix I of this notice, which were 
entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 3, 
2021, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination of this 
investigation in the Federal Register.
    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act, upon the 
publication of this notice, Commerce will instruct CBP to require a 
cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margin or 
the estimated all-others rate, as follows: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for the respondents listed above will be equal to the company-specific 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins determined in this final 
determination; (2) if the exporter is not a respondent identified 
above, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be equal to 
the company-specific estimated weighted-average dumping margin 
established for that producer of the subject merchandise; and (3) the 
cash deposit rate for all other producers and exporters will be equal 
to the all-others estimated weighted-average dumping margin. These 
suspension of liquidation instructions will remain in effect until 
further notice.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
International Trade Commission (ITC) of our final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this 
investigation is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of 
the Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the 
domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or 
threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of subject 
merchandise from Indonesia no later than 45 days after our final 
determination. If the ITC determines that such injury does not exist, 
this proceeding will be terminated and all cash deposits posted will be 
refunded. If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, Commerce 
will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon 
further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on all imports of 
the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of 
liquidation.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as a reminder to the parties subject to an 
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). Timely written 
notification of the return or 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 sanctionable 
violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.210(c).
