Soci[eacute]t[eacute] Nouvelle des Couleurs Zinciques......       14.65

Disclosure

    Commerce intends to disclose the calculations performed for these 
final results of review within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with section 751(a) 
of the Act and 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 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), we calculated importer-specific per-unit duty assessment 
rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for 
the examined sales to the total quantity of those sales. To determine 
whether an importer-specific per-unit duty assessment rate is de 
minimis, we calculated an estimated entered value. 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 (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard 
to antidumping duties.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's ``reseller policy'' will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these 
final results of review 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.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ 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 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).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following 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 SNCZ will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final 
results of this administrative review (i.e., 14.65 percent); (2) for 
merchandise exported by a producer or exporter not covered in this 
review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, 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 
producer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm 
covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-than-fair-
value (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established for the most recently completed segment of 
the proceeding for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash 
deposit rate for all other producers and exporters will continue to be 
32.16 percent ad valorem, the all-others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation.\6\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    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 the POR. 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 Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction 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 the return or 
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

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: November 23, 2021.
