SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Background
On January 26, 2021, Commerce
published the Preliminary Results.
1
We
invited interested parties to comment on
the Preliminary Results.
2
This review
covers one mandatory respondent,
ARLANXEO Brasil S.A. (ARLANXEO
Brasil). On February 25, 2021, Lion
Elastomers, LLC (the petitioner), and
ARLANXEO Brasil filed case briefs,
3
and on March 4, 2021, the petitioner
filed a rebuttal brief.
4
Commerce
conducted this review in accordance
with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff
Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).
Scope of the Order
The merchandise covered by the order
is certain ESB rubber from Brazil. The
merchandise subject to this order is
currently classifiable under subheadings
4002.19.0015 and 4002.19.0019 of the
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the
United States (HTSUS). ESB rubber is
described by Chemical Abstract Services
(CAS) Registry No. 9003–55–8. This
CAS number also refers to other types
of styrene butadiene rubber. Although
the HTSUS subheadings and CAS
registry number are provided for
convenience and customs purposes, the
written description of the scope of this
order is dispositive. For a full
description of the scope of the order, see
the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Analysis of Comments Received
All issues raised by parties in the case
and rebuttal briefs are addressed in the
Issues and Decision Memorandum. A
list of the issues addressed in the Issues
and Decision Memorandum is in the
appendix to this notice. The Issues and
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 Issues and Decision
Memorandum can be accessed directly

Changes Since the Preliminary Results
We have made no changes to the
weighted-average dumping margin for
ARLANXEO Brasil. For detailed
information, see the Issues and Decision
Memorandum.
Final Results of the Review
As a result of this review, Commerce
determines that the following weighted-
average dumping margin exists for the
period September 1, 2018, through
August 31, 2019:
Exporter/producer
Weighted-
average
margin
(percent)
ARLANXEO Brasil S.A ............... 34.93
Disclosure of Calculations
Normally, Commerce discloses to
interested parties the calculations
performed in connection with the final
results of an administrative review
within five days of any public
announcement or, if there is no public
announcement, within five days of the
date of publication of the notice of final
results in the Federal Register, in
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
However, as noted above, Commerce
has made no changes to its margin
calculations since the Preliminary
Results. Commerce disclosed its
preliminary margin calculations to
interested parties, and there are no
additional calculations to disclose.

Assessment Rates
Commerce has determined, and U.S.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
shall assess, antidumping duties on all
appropriate entries in accordance with
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19
CFR 351.212(b).
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1),
where the respondent reported the
entered value of their U.S. sales, 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 the
respondent did not report entered value,
we calculated the entered value in order
to calculate the assessment rate. Where
an importer-specific assessment rate is
de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent),
the entries by that importer will be
liquidated without reference 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.
7
For entries of subject merchandise
during the POR produced by
ARLANXEO Brasil for which it did not
know the merchandise was destined for
the United States, 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.
8
Consistent with its recent notice,
9
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 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) of the Act: (1) The
cash deposit rate for ARLANXEO Brasil
S.A. will be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin established in
the final results of this review; (2) for
merchandise exported by producers or
exporters not covered in this review but
covered in a prior segment of this
proceeding, 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 original less-than-fair-
value (LTFV) investigation, but the
producer is, then the cash deposit rate
will be the rate established for the most
recently completed segment for the
producer of the subject merchandise;
and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other
producers or exporters will continue to
be 19.61 percent, the all-others rate
established in the LTFV investigation.
10
These cash deposit requirements, when
imposed, shall remain in effect until
further notice.
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 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 Orders
This notice also serves as a reminder
to parties subject to administrative
protective order (APO) of their
responsibility concerning the return or
destruction of proprietary information
disclosed under 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 terms of an APO is a
violation subject to sanction.
Notice to Interested Parties
We are issuing and publishing these
results of administrative review in
accordance with sections 751(a) and
777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR
351.221(b)(5).
Dated: June 3, 2021.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement
and Compliance.
