Because we determined that Bessan did not receive countervailable subsidies in the final results of this review, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to countervailing duties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2) and 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of this 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 Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce also intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at the appropriate rates. For shipments of subject merchandise by Bessan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of these final results, the cash deposit rate will be zero. For all non-reviewed firms, CBP will continue to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at the most recent company-specific or all-others rate applicable to the company, as appropriate. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments We received timely submissions from TMI/TMM certifying that they did not have sales, shipments, or exports of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.5 On July 26, 2021, we requested the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data file of entries of subject merchandise imported into the United States during the POR, and exported by TMM/TMI.6 This query returned no entries during the POR.7 Additionally, on August 3, 2021, Commerce submitted a no-shipments 5 See TMI’s Letter, ‘‘Pure Magnesium from the People’s Republic of China; A–570–832; No Shipment Certification,’’ dated July 14, 2021; see also TMM’s Letter, ‘‘Pure Magnesium from the People’s Republic of China; A–570–832; No Shipment Certification,’’ dated July 14, 2021. 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Pure Magnesium from the People’s Republic of China, 05/01/2020–04/30/ 2021: Entry Data and No Shipment Inquiry,’’ dated August 31, 2021 at Attachment 1. 7 Id. at Attachment 2.

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). Pursuant to Commerce’s practice in NME cases, if we continue to determine in the final results that TMI/TMM had no shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR from these companies will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.17 Notification to Importers This notice also 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. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the 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 date of the final results of review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For TMI/TMM, which claimed no shipments, the cash deposit rate will remain unchanged from the rate assigned to TMI/TMM in the most recently completed review of the companies; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters who are not under review in this segment of the proceeding but who have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for 19 CFR 310(d). 16 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 17 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

Background

    On May 3, 2021, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice 
of opportunity to request an administrative review of the Order on pure 
magnesium from China for the POR.\1\ On May 28, 2021, in response to a 
timely request from US Magnesium LLC (the petitioner),\2\ and in 
accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated an administrative 
review of the Order with respect to TMI/TMM.\3\

Administrative Reviews, 86 FR 35481 (July 6, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the Order is pure magnesium from China, 
regardless of chemistry, form or size, unless expressly excluded from 
the scope of the order. Pure magnesium is a metal or alloy containing 
by weight primarily the element magnesium and produced by decomposing 
raw materials into magnesium metal. Pure primary magnesium is used 
primarily as a chemical in the aluminum alloying, desulfurization, and 
chemical reduction industries. In addition, pure magnesium is used as 
an input in producing magnesium alloy. Pure magnesium encompasses 
products (including, but not limited to, butt ends, stubs, crowns and 
crystals) with the following primary magnesium contents:
    (1) Products that contain at least 99.95% primary magnesium, by 
weight (generally referred to as ``ultra pure'' magnesium) Magnesium 
Alloy'' \4\ and are thus outside the scope of the existing antidumping 
orders on magnesium from China (generally referred to as ``alloy'' 
magnesium).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ The meaning of this term is the same as that used by the 
American Society for Testing and Materials (ATSM) in its Annual Book 
for ASTM Standards: Volume 01.02 Aluminum and Magnesium Alloys.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (2) Products that contain less than 99.95%, but not less than 
99.8%, primary magnesium, by weight (generally referred to as ``pure'' 
magnesium); and
    (3) Products that contain 50% or greater, but less than 99.8% 
primary magnesium, by weight, and that do not conform to ASTM 
specifications for alloy magnesium (generally referred to as ``off-
specification pure'' magnesium).
    ``Off-specification pure'' magnesium is pure primary magnesium 
containing magnesium scrap, secondary magnesium, oxidized magnesium or 
impurities (whether or not intentionally added) that cause the primary 
magnesium content to fall below 99.8% by weight. It generally does not 
contain, individually or in combination, 1.5% or more, by weight, of 
the following alloying elements: Aluminum, manganese, zinc, silicon, 
thorium, zirconium and rare earths.
    Excluded from the scope of the Order are alloy primary magnesium 
(that meets specifications for alloy magnesium), primary magnesium 
anodes, granular primary magnesium (including turnings, chips and 
powder) having a maximum physical dimension (i.e., length or diameter) 
of one inch or less, secondary magnesium (which has pure primary 
magnesium content of less than 50% by weight), and remelted magnesium 
whose pure primary magnesium content is less than 50% by weight.
    Pure magnesium products covered by the Order are currently 
classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) subheadings 8104.11.00, 8104.19.00, 8104.20.00, 8104.30.00, 
8104.90.00, 3824.90.11, 3824.90.19 and 9817.00.90. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope is dispositive.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    We received timely submissions from TMI/TMM certifying that they 
did not have sales, shipments, or exports of subject merchandise to the 
United States during the POR.\5\ On July 26, 2021, we requested the 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data file of entries of 
subject merchandise imported into the United States during the POR, and 
exported by TMM/TMI.\6\ This query returned no entries during the 
POR.\7\ Additionally, on August 3, 2021, Commerce submitted a no-
shipments inquiry to CBP with regard to TMI/TMM, to which CBP responded 
that it found no shipments of subject merchandise by TMI/TMM during the 
POR.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See TMI's Letter, ``Pure Magnesium from the People's 
Republic of China; A-570-832; No Shipment Certification,'' dated 
July 14, 2021; see also TMM's Letter, ``Pure Magnesium from the 
People's Republic of China; A-570-832; No Shipment Certification,'' 
dated July 14, 2021.
    \6\ See Memorandum, ``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of 
Pure Magnesium from the People's Republic of China, 05/01/2020-04/

at Attachment 1.
    \7\ Id. at Attachment 2.
    \8\ Id. at Attachment 3.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Accordingly, and consistent with our practice, we preliminarily 
determine that TMI/TMM had no shipments and, therefore, no reviewable 
entries during the POR. In addition, we find it is not appropriate to 
rescind the review with respect to these companies, but rather to 
complete the review with respect to TMI/TMM and issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review, 
consistent with our practice in non-market economy (NME) cases.\9\

raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective 
case and rebuttal briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties 
will be notified of the time and date for the hearing to be held.\15\ 
Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, which will include the results of our analysis of all issues 
raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of publication of these 
preliminary results in the Federal Register, unless extended, pursuant 
to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results of this review, Commerce will 
determine, and CBP will assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review.\16\ 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). Pursuant to Commerce's practice in NME cases, if we 
continue to determine in the final results that TMI/TMM had no 
shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR from these companies will be liquidated at 
the China-wide rate.\17\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the 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 date of the 
final results of review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Act: (1) For TMI/TMM, which claimed no shipments, the cash deposit rate 
will remain unchanged from the rate assigned to TMI/TMM in the most 
recently completed review of the companies; (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters who are not 
under review in this segment of the proceeding but who have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific 
rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the China-
wide rate of 111.73 percent; \18\ and (4) for all non-Chinese exporters 
of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate applicable to Chinese exporter(s) that 
supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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

    These preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(4).
