Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case and rebuttal briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at a date and time to be determined.14 Parties should confirm the date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date. Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, which will include the results of our analysis of all issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, unless extended, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Verification On December 16, 2021, the domestic interested parties requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.307(b)(1)(v), that Commerce conduct verification of the questionnaire responses submitted in this administrative review.15 As provided in section 782(i)(1) of the Act, Commerce intends to verify the information relied upon in making its final determination for Interpipe. Assessment Rates Upon issuing the final results of this review, Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.16 If the weighted-average dumping margin for Interpipe (i.e., the sole individually-examined respondent in this review) is not zero or de minimis (i.e., greater than or equal to 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, 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 14 See 19 CFR 351.310(d). Domestic Interested Parties’ Letter, ‘‘Oil Country Tubular Goods from Ukraine: Request for On-Site Verification,’’ dated December 16, 2021. 16 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 15 See PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results of the review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.17 If Interpipe’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of the 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 weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.’’ 18 In accordance with Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Interpipe for which the producer did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those entries at the all-others rate (i.e., 7.47 percent) 19 if there is no rate for the intermediate company (or companies) involved in the transaction.20 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 upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments 17 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 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). 19 See Order, 84 FR at 33919. 20 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 18 See E:\FR\FM\19SEN1.SGM 19SEN1 57178 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 180 / Monday, September 19, 2022 / Notices 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 Interpipe will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative 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 listed above, the cash deposit rate 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, a prior review, or in the less-than-fair-value investigation (LTFV) but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the 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 the all-others rate of 7.47 percent, the rate established in the LTFV investigation of this proceeding.21 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a 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.

SUMMARY: On August 30, 2022, the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) issued its final judgment in BlueScope Steel LTD. v. United States, Court No. 19–00057, sustaining the U.S. Department of Commerce’s (Commerce) remand results pertaining to the administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on certain hot-rolled steel flat products (hot-rolled steel) from Australia covering the period March 22, 2016, through September 30, 2017. Commerce is notifying the public that the CIT’s final judgment is not in harmony with Commerce’s final results of the administrative review, and that Commerce is amending the final results with respect to the dumping margin assigned to BlueScope Steel Ltd. (BSL) and its affiliate BlueScope Steel (AIS) Pty (collectively, BlueScope). DATES: Applicable September 9, 2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On April 30, 2019, Commerce published its Final Results in the 2016– 2017 AD administrative review of hotrolled steel from Australia.1 Commerce applied facts otherwise available, with an adverse inference, pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act 1 See Certain Hot-Rolled Steel Flat Products from Australia: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016–2017, 84 FR 18241 (April 30, 2019) (Final Results), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of 1930, as amended (the Act) to BlueScope because it provided deficient responses and failed to provide information in the manner and form requested, thereby significantly impeding the administrative review and failed to cooperate to the best of its ability with Commerce’s request for information. BlueScope appealed Commerce’s Final Results. On November 30, 2021, the CIT remanded the Final Results to Commerce to reexamine the record in this case, as well as the use of facts available with respect to BlueScope.2 In its remand redetermination, issued in April 2022, Commerce reevaluated the information on the record and issued a supplemental questionnaire to BlueScope identifying the deficiencies in its previous responses. Based on BlueScope’s supplemental response, we recalculated the period of review weighted-average dumping margin for BlueScope consistent with record evidence.3 The CIT sustained Commerce’s Final Redetermination.4 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken,5 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,6 the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit held that, pursuant to sections 516A(c) and (e) of the Act, Commerce must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Commerce determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The CIT’s August 30, 2022, judgment constitutes a final decision of the CIT that is not in harmony with Commerce’s Final Results. Thus, this notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court judgment, Commerce is amending its Final Results with respect to BlueScope as follows: 2 See BlueScope Steel Ltd. v. United States, 548 F. Supp. 3d 1351 at 1369 (CIT 2021). 3 See Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand, BlueScope Steel LTD. v.

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, or to participate if one is requested, must submit a 
written request to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance, within 30 days of the date of publication of this 
notice.\13\ Requests should contain: (1) the party's name, address, and 
telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of 
issues to be discussed. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to 
those raised in the respective case and rebuttal briefs. If a request 
for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at a date 
and time to be determined.\14\ Parties should confirm the date, time, 
and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, which will include the results of our analysis of all issues 
raised in the case and rebuttal briefs, within 120 days of publication 
of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, unless extended, 
pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Verification

    On December 16, 2021, the domestic interested parties requested, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.307(b)(1)(v), that Commerce conduct verification 
of the questionnaire responses submitted in this administrative 
review.\15\ As provided in section 782(i)(1) of the Act, Commerce 
intends to verify the information relied upon in making its final 
determination for Interpipe.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See Domestic Interested Parties' Letter, ``Oil Country 
Tubular Goods from Ukraine: Request for On-Site Verification,'' 
dated December 16, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of this review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\16\ If the weighted-average dumping margin for Interpipe (i.e., 
the sole individually-examined respondent in this review) is not zero 
or de minimis (i.e., greater than or equal to 0.5 percent) in the final 
results of this review, 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). Where an importer-specific ad 
valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results of 
the review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.\17\ If Interpipe's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of 
the 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.'' \18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
    \18\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Interpipe 
for which the producer did not know its merchandise was destined for 
the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those entries at 
the all-others rate (i.e., 7.47 percent) \19\ if there is no rate for 
the intermediate company (or companies) involved in the 
transaction.\20\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ See Order, 84 FR at 33919.
    \20\ 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 cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments

[[Page 57178]]

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 Interpipe will be equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of 
this administrative 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 listed above, the 
cash deposit rate 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, a prior review, or in the less-than-fair-value 
investigation (LTFV) but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the 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 
the all-others rate of 7.47 percent, the rate established in the LTFV 
investigation of this proceeding.\21\ These cash deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a 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 to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: September 9, 2022.
Lisa W. Wang,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
