ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum is available at https://access.trade.gov/public/ FRNoticesListLayout.aspx. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain changes to the margin calculations. However, those adjustments did not result in any changes to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins calculated for these final results. For a discussion of these changes, see the ‘‘Discussion of the Issues’’ section of the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Rate for Non-Examined Companies The Act and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to companies 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 a market economy 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}.’’ Where the dumping margin for individually examined respondents are all zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available, section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act provides that Commerce may use ‘‘any reasonable method to establish the estimated all-others rate for exporters and producers not individually investigated, including averaging the estimated weighted average dumping margins determined for the exporters and producers individually investigated.’’ Further, Congress, in the SAA, stated that when ‘‘the dumping margins for all of the E:\FR\FM\09SEN1.SGM 09SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 174 / Friday, September 9, 2022 / Notices exporters and producers that are individually investigated are determined entirely on the basis of the facts available or are zero or de minimis . . . {t}he expected method in such cases will be to weight-average the zero and the de minimis margins and margins determined pursuant to the facts available.’’ 7 In this review, Commerce determines that the estimated weighted-average dumping margins for both Maharaja and Mangal are zero percent. Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, we are applying to the 326 companies not selected for individual examination a rate of zero percent, because we calculated rates of zero percent for both mandatory respondents (see Appendix II for a full list of these companies). Final Results of the Review Commerce determines that the following estimated weighted-average dumping margins exists during the period September 25, 2019, through March 31, 2021: margins for Maharaja, Mangal and the 326 companies not selected for individual examination have been determined to be zero percent, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. In accordance with Commerce’s practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which Maharaja or Mangal 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 if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.9 We intend to issue instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the publication date 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).

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 the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs that were 
submitted by interested parties in this review are addressed in the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues is attached to 
this notice at Appendix I. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a 
public document and is made available to the public via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at

and Decision Memorandum is available at https://access.trade.gov/public/FRNoticesListLayout.aspx.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain 
changes to the margin calculations. However, those adjustments did not 
result in any changes to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins 
calculated for these final results. For a discussion of these changes, 
see the ``Discussion of the Issues'' section of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Examined Companies

    The Act and Commerce's regulations do not address the establishment 
of a rate to be applied to companies 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 a market economy 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} .''
    Where the dumping margin for individually examined respondents are 
all zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available, section 
735(c)(5)(B) of the Act provides that Commerce may use ``any reasonable 
method to establish the estimated all-others rate for exporters and 
producers not individually investigated, including averaging the 
estimated weighted average dumping margins determined for the exporters 
and producers individually investigated.'' Further, Congress, in the 
SAA, stated that when ``the dumping margins for all of the

exporters and producers that are individually investigated are 
determined entirely on the basis of the facts available or are zero or 
de minimis . . . {t{time} he expected method in such cases will be to 
weight-average the zero and the de minimis margins and margins 
determined pursuant to the facts available.'' \7\

Uruguay Round Agreements Act, H.R. Rep. No. 103-316, Vol. 1 (1994) 
(SAA) at 873.

    In this review, Commerce determines that the estimated weighted-
average dumping margins for both Maharaja and Mangal are zero percent. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, we are 
applying to the 326 companies not selected for individual examination a 
rate of zero percent, because we calculated rates of zero percent for 
both mandatory respondents (see Appendix II for a full list of these 
companies).

Final Results of the Review

    Commerce determines that the following estimated weighted-average 
dumping margins exists during the period September 25, 2019, through 
March 31, 2021:

Disclosure

    Commerce intends to disclose to interested parties the calculations 
performed for these final results of review within five days of 
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 shall determine, 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 
this review.
    Where the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is either 
zero or de minimis, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). Because the weighted-average dumping margins 
for Maharaja, Mangal and the 326 companies not selected for individual 
examination have been determined to be zero percent, we intend to 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.
    In accordance with Commerce's practice, for entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR for which Maharaja or Mangal 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 if there 
is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days 
after the publication date 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 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 in these final results will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margin 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 segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently-completed segment of this 
proceeding in which they were reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a 
firm covered in this review, or the original investigation but the 
producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established 
for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the 
producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers or exporters will continue to be 0.00 percent, the all-others 
rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation, adjusted 
for the export-subsidy rate in the companion countervailing duty 
investigation.\10\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Order, 85 FR 19926.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 the 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

    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 
the 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 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)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h) and 
351.222(b)(5).

    Dated: September 2, 2022.
Lisa W. Wang,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
