SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 This administrative review is being conducted in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). On January 6, 2021, Commerce published the notice of initiation of this administrative review, covering Both-Well and Shanghai Maorun.1 On January 27, 2021, Commerce issued the non-market economy (NME) antidumping duty (AD) questionnaire to Both-Well and Shanghai Maorun. On February 1, 2021, Shanghai Maorun withdrew its request for review.2 On June 28, 2021, Commerce extended the preliminary results deadline by 120 days.3 For a complete 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 86 FR 515 (January 6, 2021) (Initiation Notice). 2 See Shanghai Maorun’s Letter, ‘‘Withdrawal of Request of Review,’’ dated February 1, 2021 (Maorun’s Withdrawal of Request for Review). 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Forged Steel Fittings from the People’s Republic of China: Extension of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Dec 06, 2021 Jkt 256001 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the Order 5 is carbon and alloy forged steel fittings, whether unfinished (commonly known as blanks or rough forgings) or finished. For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Partial Rescission of Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. On February 1, 2021, Shanghai Maorun timely withdrew its request for review. Because there was a timely withdrawal of request for review for Shanghai Maorun and because there are no other active requests for review for Shanghai Maorun, we are rescinding this review with respect to Shanghai Maorun, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213. We calculated export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because China is an NME country within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.

In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is available at https://access.trade.gov/public/ FRNoticesListLayout.aspx. Separate Rates In all proceedings involving an NME country, Commerce maintains a rebuttable presumption that all companies are subject to government control and, thus, should be assessed a single weighted-average dumping margin unless the company can affirmatively demonstrate an absence of government control, both in law (de jure) and in fact (de facto), with respect to its export activities so that it is entitled to separate rate status.6 Commerce has preliminary determined that information placed on the record by Both-Well demonstrates that Both-Well is eligible for separate rate status. As noted above, we are rescinding this review with respect to Shanghai Maorun. For the reasons stated below, as Shanghai Maorun is currently a part of the China-wide entity, we will continue to treat Shanghai Maorun as part of the China-wide entity. See Assessment Rates. Commerce’s policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide entity applies to this administrative review.7 Under this policy, the Chinawide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the China-wide entity.8 Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity in this review, the China-wide entity is not under review and the China-wide entity’s rate (i.e., 142.72 percent) is not subject to change.9 For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Assessment Rates In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, the final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review. Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.15 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. 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). We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review, when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review for Both-Well, are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). Where Both-Well’s importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis,16 we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. If Both-Well’s weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis in the final results of this review, Commerce will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).17 We intend to calculate importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates by dividing the total amount of dumping calculated for all reviewed U.S. sales to the importer by the total entered value of the merchandise sold to the importer for Both-Well.18 For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted by BothWell during this review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at 15 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 17 Commerce will apply the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 18 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 16 See PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69223 the rate for the China-wide entity pursuant to the NME reseller policy.19 For Shanghai Maorun, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). For Shanghai Maorun, Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of this notice. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For BothWell, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is de minimis, then the cash deposit rate will be zero); (2) for previously examined Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior completed segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporterspecific cash deposit rate; (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 rate for the China-wide entity (i.e., 142.72 percent); and (4) for all non-Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These cash 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 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. 19 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (December 23, 2010) at 65694–65695, for a full discussion of this practice.

Commerce intends to issue instructions directly to CBP no earlier than 35 days after publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register. Cash Deposit Rate Pursuant to section 751(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties in the amount indicated for Both-Well with regard to shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This administrative review is being conducted in accordance with 
section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). On 
January 6, 2021, Commerce published the notice of initiation of this 
administrative review, covering Both-Well and Shanghai Maorun.\1\ On 
January 27, 2021, Commerce issued the non-market economy (NME) 
antidumping duty (AD) questionnaire to Both-Well and Shanghai Maorun. 
On February 1, 2021, Shanghai Maorun withdrew its request for 
review.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 86 FR 515 (January 6, 2021) (Initiation 
Notice).
    \2\ See Shanghai Maorun's Letter, ``Withdrawal of Request of 
Review,'' dated February 1, 2021 (Maorun's Withdrawal of Request for 
Review).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On June 28, 2021, Commerce extended the preliminary results 
deadline by 120 days.\3\ For a complete description of the events that 
followed the initiation of this administrative review, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Memorandum, ``Forged Steel Fittings from the People's 
Republic of China: Extension of Deadline for Preliminary Results of

China; 2019-2020,'' dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, 
this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the Order \5\ is carbon and alloy forged 
steel fittings, whether unfinished (commonly known as blanks or rough 
forgings) or finished. For a complete description of the scope of the 
Order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

    \5\ See Forged Steel Fittings from Italy and the People's 
Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Orders, 83 FR 60397 (November 
26, 2018) (Order).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of the date 
of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. On 
February 1, 2021, Shanghai Maorun timely withdrew its request for 
review. Because there was a timely withdrawal of request for review for 
Shanghai Maorun and because there are no other active requests for 
review for Shanghai Maorun, we are rescinding this review with respect 
to Shanghai Maorun, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213. We calculated export prices 
in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because China is an NME 
country within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV has been 
calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. A list of the 
topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included in 
the appendix to this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a 
public document and is made available to the public via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at 
https://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum is available at https://access.trade.gov/public/FRNoticesListLayout.aspx.

Separate Rates

    In all proceedings involving an NME country, Commerce maintains a 
rebuttable presumption that all companies are subject to government 
control and, thus, should be assessed a single weighted-average dumping 
margin unless the company can affirmatively demonstrate an absence of 
government control, both in law (de jure) and in fact (de facto), with 
respect to its export activities so that it is entitled to separate 
rate status.\6\ Commerce has preliminary determined that information 
placed on the record by Both-Well demonstrates that Both-Well is 
eligible for separate rate status.

Value, and Affirmative Critical Circumstances, In Part: Certain

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As noted above, we are rescinding this review with respect to 
Shanghai Maorun. For the reasons stated below, as Shanghai Maorun is 
currently a part of the China-wide entity, we will continue to treat 
Shanghai Maorun as part of the China-wide entity. See Assessment Rates.
    Commerce's policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide 
entity applies to this administrative review.\7\ Under this policy, the 
China-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically 
requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the China-wide 
entity.\8\ Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity 
in this review, the China-wide entity is not under review and the 
China-wide entity's rate (i.e., 142.72 percent) is not subject to 
change.\9\ For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Final Results of Review

    Unless otherwise extended, Commerce intends to issue the final 
results of this administrative review, which will include the results 
of its analysis of issues raised in any briefs, within 120 days of 
publication of these preliminary results, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, the final 
results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of 
antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review. 
Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce will determine, and CBP 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by 
this review.\15\ 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. 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review, when the importer-specific 
assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review for 
Both-Well, are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). 
Where Both-Well's importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis,\16\ we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties. If Both-Well's weighted-average 
dumping margin is not zero or de minimis in the final results of this 
review, Commerce will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at 
the time of liquidation, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\17\ 
We intend to calculate importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates by 
dividing the total amount of dumping calculated for all reviewed U.S. 
sales to the importer by the total entered value of the merchandise 
sold to the importer for Both-Well.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
    \17\ Commerce will apply the assessment rate calculation method 
adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
    \18\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted 
by Both-Well during this review, Commerce will instruct CBP to 
liquidate such entries at the rate for the China-wide entity pursuant 
to the NME reseller policy.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (December 23, 2010) at 65694-
65695, for a full discussion of this practice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For Shanghai Maorun, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates 
equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at 
the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). For Shanghai Maorun, Commerce 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP no earlier 
than 35 days after the date of publication of this notice.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Both-Well, the 
cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is 
de minimis, then the cash deposit rate will be zero); (2) for 
previously examined Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above 
that received a separate rate in a prior completed segment of this 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing 
exporter-specific cash deposit rate; (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 rate for the China-
wide entity (i.e., 142.72 percent); and (4) for all non-Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the 
Chinese exporter that supplied that non-Chinese exporter.
    These cash 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 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.
