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 any zero and de minimis margins, and any margins 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 Dongkuk and Hyundai in this administrative review.8 Preliminary Results We preliminarily determine the following weighted-average dumping margins for the period July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021: Exporter/producer Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd ........

For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review and the respondent reported entered values, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales made during the POR to each importer and the total entered value of those same sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the respondent has not reported entered values, we will calculate a perunit assessment rate for each importer by dividing the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales made to that importer by the total quantity associated with those transactions. To determine whether an importer-specific, per-unit assessment rate is de minimis, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we also will calculate an importer-specific ad valorem ratio based on estimated entered values. Where an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). If a respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., ‘‘{w}here the weightedaverage margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.’’ 10 In accordance with Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by any of the abovereferenced respondents for which they did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those entries at the all-others rate in the original lessthan-fair-value (LTFV) investigation (as 10 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) (Final Modification for Reviews).

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this administrative review in accordance 
with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 
Export price and constructed export price were calculated in accordance 
with section 772 of the Act. NV was calculated in accordance with 
section 773 of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. A list of topics 
discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an 
appendix to this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a 
public document and is on file electronically 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 can be accessed directly at https://access.trade.gov/public/FRNoticesListLayout.aspx.

Rate for Non-Examined Companies

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate 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 market 
economy AD investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate 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 any zero 
and de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the 
basis of facts available{time} .''
    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 Dongkuk 
and Hyundai in this administrative review.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ For more information regarding the calculation of this 
margin, see Memorandum, ``Calculation of the Cash Deposit Rate for 
Non-Reviewed Companies,'' dated concurrently with this notice.
    \9\ In a recently completed changed circumstances review, 
Commerce found that KG Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd. is the successor-in-
interest to Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd. for purposes of determining 
antidumping cash deposits and liabilities. See Certain Cold-Rolled 
Steel Flat Products and Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products 
from the Republic of Korea: Final Results of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Changed Circumstances Reviews, 86 FR 10922 
(February 23, 2021). Also, in the previous segment of this 
proceeding, Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd. and Dongbu Incheon Steel Co., 
Ltd. were collapsed and treated as a single entity for antidumping 
purposes. See Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from the 
Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2018-2019, 85 FR 74987

respect to these companies, we continue to treat them as a single 
entity for purposes of this review.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For any individually 
examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is not zero 
or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results of 
this review and the respondent reported entered values, we will 
calculate importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates for the 
merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the examined sales made during the POR to each importer 
and the total entered value of those same sales, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the respondent has not reported entered values, 
we will calculate a per-unit assessment rate for each importer by 
dividing the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales 
made to that importer by the total quantity associated with those 
transactions. To determine whether an importer-specific, per-unit 
assessment rate is de minimis, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), 
we also will calculate an importer-specific ad valorem ratio based on 
estimated entered values.
    Where an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). If a respondent's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of 
review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries 
in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., 
``{w{time} here the weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter 
is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be 
assessed.'' \10\

    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by any of 
the above-referenced respondents for which they did not know that the 
merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate those entries at the all-others rate in the original less-
than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation (as

    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 upon 
publication of the notice of final results of this administrative 
review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication, 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 in 
which the company participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm 
covered in this review, or the underlying investigation, but the 
producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established 
for the most recent segment for the producer of the merchandise; and 
(4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers and exporters will 
continue to be 8.31 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
LTFV investigation (as amended).\13\ These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 and/or countervailing 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 and/or countervailing duties occurred 
and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: July 27, 2022.
Lisa W. Wang,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
