SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) determines that the producers and/or exporters subject to this administrative review made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value during the period of review (POR), May 1, 2019, through April 30, 2020. Additionally, Commerce determines that two companies for which we initiated a review had no shipments during the POR. DATES: Applicable February 8, 2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background This review covers 22 producers and/ or exporters of the subject merchandise. Commerce selected two companies, Industeel Belgium S.A. (Industeel) and NLMK Clabecq S.A./NLMK Plate Sales S.A./NLMK Sales Europe S.A./NLMK Manage Steel Center S.A./NLMK La Louviere S.A. (collectively, NLMK Belgium), for individual examination. The producers and/or exporters not selected for individual examination are listed in the ‘‘Final Results of the Review’’ section of this notice. On August 6, 2021, Commerce published the Preliminary Results.1 In September 2021, Nucor Corporation (the petitioner), AG der Dillinger Huttenwerke (Dillinger), Industeel, and NLMK Belgium submitted case and rebuttal briefs.2 For a description of the 1 See Certain Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-toLength Plate from Belgium: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2019– 2020, 86 FR 43166 (August 6, 2021) (Preliminary Results). 2 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Nucor’s Case Brief and Request for a Hearing,’’ dated September 7, 2021; Dillinger’s Letter, ‘‘Case Brief,’’ dated September 7, 2021; NLMK Belgium’s Letter, ‘‘Case Brief,’’ dated PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 events that occurred since the Preliminary Results, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.3 On November 30, 2021, we extended the deadline for the final results by 60 days, until February 2, 2022.4 Commerce conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are certain carbon and alloy steel hot-rolled or forged flat plate products not in coils, whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances from Belgium. Products subject to the order are currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule on the United States (HTSUS) under item numbers: 7208.40.3030, 7208.40.3060, 7208.51.0030, 7208.51.0045, 7208.51.0060, 7208.52.0000, 7211.13.0000, 7211.14.0030, 7211.14.0045, 7225.40.1110, 7225.40.1180, 7225.40.3005, 7225.40.3050, 7226.20.0000, and 7226.91.5000.

Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received no-shipment claims from Dillinger and Industeel France S.A.S. (Industeel France). In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that Dillinger and Industeel France had no reviewable transactions during the POR. Therefore, because the record indicates that these companies did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we continue to find that Dillinger and Industeel France had no reviewable transactions during the POR. Accordingly, consistent with Commerce’s practice, we intend to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by Dillinger or Industeel France, but exported by other parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate.7 Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain changes to the preliminary weighted-average margin calculations for NLMK Belgium and for those companies not selected for individual review.8 Final Results of the Review We are assigning the following weighted-average dumping margins to the firms listed below for the period May 1, 2019, through April 30, 2020: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Producers/exporters Industeel Belgium S.A ...................................................................................................................................................................

Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a lessthan-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, for guidance when calculating the weighted-average dumping margin for companies which were not selected for individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated 7 See, e.g., Magnesium Metal from the Russian Federation: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 26922, 26923 (May 13, 2010), unchanged in Magnesium Metal VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:16 Feb 07, 2022 Jkt 256001 weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), or determined entirely on the basis of facts available. Consistent with section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, we determined the weightedaverage dumping margin for each of the non-selected companies by using the weighted-average dumping margins calculated for Industeel France and NLMK Belgium in this administrative review.

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), 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. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 8 See accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum.

For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we will assign an assessment rate based on the simple average of the cash deposit rates calculated for Industeel and NLMK Belgium. 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.9 Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ 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. As indicated above, for Dillinger and Industeel France, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by Dillinger or Industeel France, but exported by other parties, at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. 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 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 each specific company listed above will be that 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 investigated companies not 9 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:16 Feb 07, 2022 Jkt 256001 participating in this review, the cash deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the original LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 5.40 percent, the allothers rate established in the LTFV investigation.10 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. Notification Regarding 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This review covers 22 producers and/or exporters of the subject 
merchandise. Commerce selected two companies, Industeel Belgium S.A. 
(Industeel) and NLMK Clabecq S.A./NLMK Plate Sales S.A./NLMK Sales

    Commerce conducted this administrative review in accordance with 
section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are certain carbon and alloy 
steel hot-rolled or forged flat plate products not in coils, whether or 
not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic 
substances from Belgium. Products subject to the order are currently 
classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule on the United States 
(HTSUS) under item numbers: 7208.40.3030, 7208.40.3060, 7208.51.0030,

Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received no-shipment claims 
from Dillinger and Industeel France S.A.S. (Industeel France). In the 
Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that Dillinger and 
Industeel France had no reviewable transactions during the POR. 
Therefore, because the record indicates that these companies did not 
export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we 
continue to find that Dillinger and Industeel France had no reviewable 
transactions during the POR. Accordingly, consistent with Commerce's 
practice, we intend to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by 
Dillinger or Industeel France, but exported by other parties, at the 
rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others 
rate.\7\

NLMK Belgium and for those companies not selected for individual 
review.\8\

Rate for Non-Examined Companies

    The Act and Commerce's regulations do not address the establishment 
of a weighted-average dumping margin to be applied to companies not 
selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its 
examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) 
of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, 
which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, for guidance when 
calculating the weighted-average dumping margin for companies which 
were not selected for individual examination in an administrative 
review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is 
normally an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters and 
producers individually investigated, excluding rates that are zero, de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), or determined entirely on the 
basis of facts available.
    Consistent with section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, we determined the 
weighted-average dumping margin for each of the non-selected companies 
by using the weighted-average dumping margins calculated for Industeel 
France and NLMK Belgium in this administrative review.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed 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 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 
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. 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 rate is zero or de minimis, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate

[[Page 7118]]

entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the simple average of the cash 
deposit rates calculated for Industeel and NLMK Belgium. 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.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' 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. As indicated above, for 
Dillinger and Industeel France, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any 
existing entries of merchandise produced by Dillinger or Industeel 
France, but exported by other parties, at the all-others rate if there 
is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.
    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 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 each specific 
company listed above will be that 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 
investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash 
deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the 
most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, or the original LTFV 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, then the cash deposit rate will 
be the rate established for the most recent segment for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 5.40 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.\10\ 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.

Notification Regarding 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 being issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
