On June 28, 2021, Commerce published the Preliminary Results.1 On July 28, 2021, we received a case brief on behalf of Electrolux.2 On August 4, 2021, we received a rebuttal brief on behalf of Whirlpool Corporation (the petitioner).3 Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are all large residential washers and certain subassemblies thereof from Mexico. The products are currently classifiable under subheadings 8450.20.0040 and 8450.20.0080 of the Harmonized Tariff System of the United States (HTSUS).

Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of 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), Electrolux 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. Where 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. Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Electrolux for which the company did not know that the merchandise it 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 6 See E:\FR\FM\26NON1.SGM Issues and Decision Memorandum at 8. 26NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 225 / Friday, November 26, 2021 / Notices liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.7 Commerce intends to issue liquidation instructions to CBP no earlier than 41 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register.

Disclosure of Calculations

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed 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 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), Electrolux 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. Where 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.
    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice will apply to entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Electrolux for which 
the company did not know that the merchandise it 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

[[Page 67447]]

liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate 
for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue liquidation instructions to CBP no 
earlier than 41 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 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 Electrolux will 
be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 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 reviewed or investigated companies not participating in 
this review, the cash deposit 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 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 manufacturer of the subject merchandise; and 
(4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will 
continue to be 36.52 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
LTFV investigation.\8\ These 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 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.
