Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on the comments received from interested parties and record information, we made no changes to our preliminary weighted-average dumping margin calculations for Bothwell.

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because the respondent did not report entered value, we calculated importerspecific per-unit duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total quantity of those sales. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.5 To determine whether an importer-specific per-unit duty assessment rate is de minimis, we calculated an estimated entered value. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.6 Consistent with Commerce’s clarification of its assessment practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Bothwell for which it did not know the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.7 Cash Deposit Requirements khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of forged steel fittings from Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Bothwell will be equal to the weightedaverage dumping margin established in the final results of this review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review but 5 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). 6 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. 7 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

    In the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we address the sole issue 
raised in the case and rebuttal briefs submitted by interested parties 
as reflected in the list of topics provided in the appendix to this 
notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is

Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). 
ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov. In

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on the comments received from interested parties and record 
information, we made no changes to our preliminary weighted-average 
dumping margin calculations for Bothwell.

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margin 
exists for Bothwell for the period September 1, 2019, through August 
31, 2020:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             Weighted-

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

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce will disclose to the parties in a proceeding the 
calculations performed in connection with the final results of review 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, because Commerce made no 
adjustments to the margin calculation methodology used in the 
Preliminary Results, there are no calculations to disclose for the 
final results of review.

Assessment Rates

    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.\4\ 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

[[Page 73242]]

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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because the respondent did not 
report entered value, we calculated importer-specific per-unit duty 
assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping 
duties calculated for the examined sales to the total quantity of those 
sales. Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) 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 appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.\5\ To determine whether an 
importer-specific per-unit duty assessment rate is de minimis, we 
calculated an estimated entered value.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with Commerce's clarification of its assessment 
practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Bothwell for which it did not know the merchandise was destined for the 
United States, 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.\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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of forged steel fittings from Taiwan entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of 
the final results as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The 
cash deposit rate for Bothwell will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margin established in the final results of this review; (2) for 
merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this 
review but covered in a prior completed segment of the proceeding, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate 
published in the completed segment for the most recent period; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the original less-
than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, then the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the completed segment 
for the most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to 
be 116.17 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation.\8\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Order, 83 FR at 48281.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 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 Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (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 
terms of an APO is a violation subject to sanction.

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).
