Scope of the Investigation

    The product covered by this investigation is polyester textured 
yarn from Vietnam. For a complete description of the scope of this 
investigation, see Appendix I.

Verification

    Commerce was unable to conduct on-site verification of the 
information relied upon in making its final determination in this 
investigation. However, we took additional steps in lieu of an on-site 
verification to verify the information relied upon in making this final 
determination, in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of

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. 
A list of the issues raised in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is 
attached to this notice as Appendix II.

Vietnam-Wide Entity and Use of Adverse Facts Available

    We continue to find that the use of facts available is warranted in 
determining the rate for the Vietnam-wide entity pursuant to sections 
776(a)(1) and (2)(A)-(C) of the Act.\6\ Further, use of adverse facts 
available is warranted with respect to the Vietnam-wide entity because 
the Vietnam-wide entity did not cooperate to the best of its 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 Preliminary Determination PDM at 15-17.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes From the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain 
changes to the dumping margin calculations for the Century Single 
Entity and the Vietnam-wide entity.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See the Issues and Decision Memorandum for a discussion of 
these changes.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Combination Rate

    Consistent with the Preliminary Determination \8\ and Policy 
Bulletin 05.1,\9\ Commerce calculated a combination rate for the 
Century Single Entity, the sole respondent eligible for a separate rate 
in this investigation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Preliminary Determination.
    \9\ See Enforcement and Compliance's Policy Bulletin No. 05.1,

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 
Vietnam, 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 weighted-average amount by which the normal 
value exceeds U.S. price as follows: (1) The cash deposit rate for the 
exporter/producer combination listed in the table above will be the 
rate identified in the table; (2) for all combinations of Vietnamese 
exporters/producers of subject merchandise that have not received their 
own separate rate above, the cash-deposit rate will be the cash deposit 
rate established for the Vietnam-wide entity; and (3) for all non-
Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received 
their own separate rate above, the cash-deposit rate will be the cash 
deposit rate applicable to the Vietnamese exporter/producer combination 
(or the Vietnam-wide entity) that supplied that non-Vietnamese 
exporter. 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 less than fair value. 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 Vietnam 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).

Appendix I--Scope of the Investigation

    The merchandise covered by this investigation, polyester 
textured yarn, is synthetic multifilament yarn that is manufactured 
from polyester (polyethylene terephthalate). Polyester textured yarn

properties to the filaments of the yarn, including stretch, bulk, 
strength, moisture absorption, insulation, and the appearance of a 
natural fiber. This scope includes all forms of polyester textured 
yarn, regardless of surface texture or appearance, yarn density and 
thickness (as measured in denier), number of filaments, number of 
plies, finish (luster), cross section, color, dye method, texturing 
method, or packaging method (such as spindles, tubes, or beams).
    The merchandise subject to this investigation is properly 
classified under subheadings 5402.33.3000 and 5402.33.6000 of the
