Preliminary Results of Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for the period July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021: Producer/exporter Daejin Steel Company ................ Korea Wire Co., Ltd .................... Je-il Wire Production Co., Ltd .... Koram Inc ...................................

Oral presentations at the hearing will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be notified of the time and date for the hearing.14 An electronically-filed document must be received successfully in its entirety by ACCESS by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the established deadline. Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results, unless otherwise extended.15 Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.16 For the companies for which we have rescinded this review, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit rate of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, during the POR, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated importer-specific ad valorem 9 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii). 19 CFR 351.309(d); see also Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 41363 (July 10, 2020). 11 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2). 12 See 19 CFR 351.303. 13 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 14 See 19 CFR 351.310(d). 15 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act; see also 19 CFR 351.213(h). 16 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES 10 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:25 Aug 03, 2022 Jkt 256001 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 for which entered value was reported. 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 entries without regard to antidumping duties. 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.17 For the companies (i.e., Je-il Wire Production Co., Ltd and Koram Inc.) that were not selected for individual examination, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties at an ad valorem rate equal to the companies’ weighted-average dumping margins determined in the final results of this review. Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these preliminary results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know that the merchandise it 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.18 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 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 17 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 18 For PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47705 cash deposit rate for the companies listed above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 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 reviewed or investigated companies not covered in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific cash deposit rate published for the most recently completed segment in which the company was reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 11.80 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.19 These 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) 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 doubled antidumping duties. Notification to Interested Parties Commerce is issuing and publishing these preliminary results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4) and 351.213(d)(4).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On July 13, 2015, Commerce published the Order in the Federal 
Register.\1\ On July 1, 2021, we published a notice of opportunity to 
request an administrative review of the Order.\2\ On September 7, 2021, 
based on timely requests for review, in accordance with section 751(a) 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), we initiated an 
administrative review of the Order on steel nails from Korea covering 
the following individually-examined companies: Daejin and KOWIRE.\3\ On 
March 11, 2022, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, Commerce 
extended the preliminary results of this review to no later than July 
29, 2022.\4\ For a complete description of the events that followed the 
initiation of this review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\5\

Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order 
on Certain Steel Nails from the Republic of Korea; 2020-2021,'' 
dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice 
(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 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. On 
July 29, 2021, Mid Continent Steel & Wire, Inc. (the petitioner) 
requested an administrative review of 213 producers and/or exporters, 
including Daejin and KOWIRE. On September 21, 2021, the petitioner 
timely withdrew its request for 209 of the 213 companies.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Petitioner's Letter, ``Certain Steel Nails from Korea--
Withdrawal of Review Request,'' dated September 21, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because all requests for administrative review of the 209 companies 
were timely withdrawn, and no other parties requested review of these 
companies, Commerce is rescinding this review, in part, with respect to 
these 209 companies. On October 5, 2021, based on U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) data, we selected Daejin and KOWIRE as the 
mandatory respondents in this administrative review.\7\ For a complete 
description of the events that followed the initiation of this review, 
see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

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

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in any 
written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication 
of these preliminary results, unless otherwise extended.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act; see also 19 CFR 
351.213(h).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered 
by this review.\16\ For the companies for which we have rescinded this 
review, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties 
on all appropriate entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit rate of 
estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, during the POR, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 for which entered value was reported. 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 entries without regard to antidumping duties. 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.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies (i.e., Je-il Wire Production Co., Ltd and Koram 
Inc.) that were not selected for individual examination, we will 
instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties at an ad valorem rate equal 
to the companies' weighted-average dumping margins determined in the 
final results of this review.
    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in 
these preliminary results of review for which the reviewed companies 
did not know that the merchandise it 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.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 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 the companies 
listed above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
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 reviewed or investigated companies not covered in 
this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific cash deposit rate published for the most recently completed 
segment in which the company was reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a 
firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-than-
fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, then the cash 
deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 11.80 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\19\ These 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) 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 doubled antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    Commerce is issuing and publishing these preliminary results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(4) and 351.213(d)(4).

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