The cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties This notice also 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 Order (APO) This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to APO of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, 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 which is subject to sanction. We are issuing these final results of administrative review and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Dated: January 31, 2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On August 6, 2021, Commerce published the Preliminary Results for this administrative review.1 We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. This review covers two mandatory respondents: Prosperity Tieh Enterprise Co., Ltd. (Prosperity) and Yieh Phui Enterprise Co., Ltd. (Yieh Phui).2 We received case briefs from AK 1 See Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2019– 2020, 86 FR 43185 (August 6, 2021) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 2 In the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation of the AD order, we collapsed Prosperity, Yieh Phui, and Synn and treated them as a single entity.

In the first administrative review, we determined to no longer collapse Prosperity with YP and Synn, but we continued to collapse YP and Synn and treated them as a single entity. See Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016– 2017, 83 FR 39679 (August 10, 2018), unchanged in Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016–2017, 83 FR 64527 (December 17, 2018), amended by Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016–2017, 84 FR 5991 (February 25, 2019). We selected the YP/Synn entity as a single combined respondent and treated it as such in the pre-preliminary phase of this review. Subsequently, in the immediately preceding administrative review of this case, we determined that YP and Synn should no longer be collapsed.

In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at https://access.trade.gov/public/ FRNoticesListLayout.aspx. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and analysis of the comments received from interested parties, we made no changes to the preliminary weighted-average margin calculation for Prosperity, and we made two changes to the preliminary weighted-average margin calculation for Yieh Phui. For detailed information, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce preliminarily determined that Synn made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.9 As we have not received any information to contradict this determination, nor comment in opposition to our preliminary finding, we continue to determine that Synn made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Consistent with our practice, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate any existing entries of subject merchandise produced by Synn, but exported by other parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate. Rate for Respondent Not Selected for Individual Examination The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to individual respondents not selected for 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 an investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for respondents which we did not examine in an administrative review. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act establishes a preference to avoid using rates which are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available (FA) in calculating an all others rate. Accordingly, Commerce’s practice in administrative reviews has been to average the weighted-average dumping margins for the companies selected for individual examination in the administrative review, excluding 9 See PO 00000 Preliminary Results, 86 FR 43185–86. Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7107 rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on FA.10 For these final results of review, we calculated a weightedaverage dumping margin for both mandatory respondents which is not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely on the basis of FA.11 Accordingly, Commerce assigns to the company not examined in this review (i.e., Sheng Yu Steel Co., Ltd.) a dumping margin of 3.10 percent, which is the weighted average of the dumping margins calculated using the public ranged sales data of Prosperity and Yieh Phui. Final Results of the Administrative Review We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the respondents for the period July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020: Exporter/producer Prosperity Tieh Enterprise Co., Ltd ........................................... Sheng Yu Steel Co., Ltd ............ Yieh Phui Enterprise Co., Ltd ..... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 3.63 3.10 2.05 Disclosure We intend to disclose to interested parties the calculations and analysis performed for these final results within five days of the date of the publication of this notice in the Federal Register 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 will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all 10 See, e.g., Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews and Rescission of Reviews in Part, 73 FR 52823, 52824 (September 11, 2008), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 16. 11 In the case of two mandatory respondents, our practice is to calculate: (A) A weighted average of the dumping margins calculated for the mandatory respondents; (B) a simple average of the dumping margins calculated for the mandatory respondents; and (C) a weighted average of the dumping margins calculated for the mandatory respondents using each company’s publicly ranged values for the merchandise under consideration. We compare (B) and (C) to (A) and select the rate closest to (A) as the most appropriate rate for all other companies. See Certain Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from Taiwan: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2014– 2016, 82 FR 31555, 31556 (July 7, 2017). We have applied that practice here. See Memorandum, ‘‘2019–2020 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Calculation of All-Others’ Rate in Final Results,’’ dated concurrently with this notice.

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 those 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 assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.12 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the mandatory respondents for which they did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States, or for entries associated with Synn, who had no shipments during the POR, 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. 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.13 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 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 the companies listed above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for 12 In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 13 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.

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 order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of return/ destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.

    \2\ In the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation of the AD 
order, we collapsed Prosperity, Yieh Phui, and Synn and treated them

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the Order is flat-rolled steel products, 
either clad, plated, or coated with corrosion-resistant metals such as 
zinc, aluminum, or zinc-, aluminum-, nickel- or iron-based alloys, 
whether or not corrugated or painted, varnished, laminated, or coated 
with plastics or other non-metallic substances in addition to the

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

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and analysis of the comments 
received from interested parties, we made no changes to the preliminary 
weighted-average margin calculation for Prosperity, and we made two 
changes to the preliminary weighted-average margin calculation for Yieh 
Phui. For detailed information, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce preliminarily determined that 
Synn made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.\9\ As we 
have not received any information to contradict this determination, nor 
comment in opposition to our preliminary finding, we continue to 
determine that Synn made no shipments of subject merchandise during the 
POR. Consistent with our practice, we will instruct U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate any existing entries of subject 
merchandise produced by Synn, but exported by other parties, at the 
rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others 
rate.

Rate for Respondent Not Selected for Individual Examination

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate to be applied to individual respondents not 
selected for 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 an 
investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for respondents 
which we did not examine in an administrative review. Section 
735(c)(5)(A) of the Act establishes a preference to avoid using rates 
which are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available (FA) 
in calculating an all others rate. Accordingly, Commerce's practice in 
administrative reviews has been to average the weighted-average dumping 
margins for the companies selected for individual examination in the 
administrative review, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or 
based entirely on FA.\10\ For these final results of review, we 
calculated a weighted-average dumping margin for both mandatory 
respondents which is not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely on 
the basis of FA.\11\ Accordingly, Commerce assigns to the company not 
examined in this review (i.e., Sheng Yu Steel Co., Ltd.) a dumping 
margin of 3.10 percent, which is the weighted average of the dumping 
margins calculated using the public ranged sales data of Prosperity and 
Yieh Phui.

Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews and Rescission of Reviews in 
Part, 73 FR 52823, 52824 (September 11, 2008), and accompanying 
Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 16.
    \11\ In the case of two mandatory respondents, our practice is 
to calculate: (A) A weighted average of the dumping margins 
calculated for the mandatory respondents; (B) a simple average of 
the dumping margins calculated for the mandatory respondents; and 
(C) a weighted average of the dumping margins calculated for the 
mandatory respondents using each company's publicly ranged values 
for the merchandise under consideration. We compare (B) and (C) to 
(A) and select the rate closest to (A) as the most appropriate rate 
for all other companies. See Certain Crystalline Silicon 
Photovoltaic Products from Taiwan: Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review; 2014-2016, 82 FR 31555, 31556 (July 7, 2017). 
We have applied that practice here. See Memorandum, ``2019-2020 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Corrosion-
Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Calculation of All-Others' 
Rate in Final Results,'' dated concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist for the respondents for the period July 1, 2019, through June 30, 
2020:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Weighted-
                                                                average
                      Exporter/producer                         dumping

                                                               (percent)

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose to interested parties the calculations and 
analysis performed for these final results within five days of the date 
of the publication of this notice in the Federal Register 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 will determine, and CBP shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all

[[Page 7108]]

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 those 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 assessment 
rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.\12\ For 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the mandatory 
respondents for which they did not know their merchandise was destined 
for the United States, or for entries associated with Synn, who had no 
shipments during the POR, 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment 
rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: 
Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment 
Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 
FR 8101 (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.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 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 the companies listed above will 
be equal to the weighted-average dumping margins established in the 
final results of this administrative 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 
for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the 
producer has been covered in a prior complete segment of this 
proceeding, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 3.66 percent,\14\ the all-others rate from the Amended 
Final Determination. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

of Court Decision Not in Harmony with Final Determination of 
Antidumping Duty Investigation and Notice of Amended Final 
Determination of Investigation, 84 FR 6129 (February 26, 2019) 
(Amended Final Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 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 order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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

    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 
19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: February 2, 2022.
