DATES: Effective Date: June 27, 2011. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) has determined that it made certain significant ministerial errors in the preliminary determination of sales at less than fair value in the antidumping duty investigation of multilayered wood flooring from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), as described below in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice. The Department has corrected these errors and has re-calculated the antidumping duty margin for a mandatory respondent, for exporters eligible for a separate rate, and for the PRC-wide rate, as described below in the ‘‘Amended Preliminary Determination’’ section of this notice. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Charles Riggle, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 482– 0650. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 26, 2011, the Department published its affirmative preliminary determination in this proceeding that multilayered wood flooring from the PRC is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, as provided by section 773 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’). See Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 76 FR 30656 (May 26, 2011) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). On May 31, 2011, Riverside Plywood Corporation, Samling Elegant Living Trading (Labuan) Limited, Samling Global USA, Inc., Samling Riverside Co., Ltd. and Suzhou Times Flooring (collectively, the ‘‘Samling Group’’) and Vicwood Industry (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. (‘‘Vicwood’’) submitted timely ministerial error allegations with respect to the Department’s Preliminary Determination. Therefore, in accordance to section 351.224(e) of the Department’s regulations, we have made changes, as discussed below, to the Preliminary Determination. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:51 Jun 24, 2011 Jkt 223001 Period of Investigation The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is April 1, 2010, through September 30, 2010. This period corresponds to the two most recent fiscal quarters prior to the month of the filing of the petition, which was October 2010. See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1). Scope of Investigation Multilayered wood flooring is composed of an assembly of two or more layers or plies of wood veneer(s) 1 in combination with a core. The several layers, along with the core, are glued or otherwise bonded together to form a final assembled product. Multilayered wood flooring is often referred to by other terms, e.g., ‘‘engineered wood flooring’’ or ‘‘plywood flooring.’’ Regardless of the particular terminology, all products that meet the description set forth herein are intended for inclusion within the definition of subject merchandise. All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise, without regard to: dimension (overall thickness, thickness of face ply, thickness of back ply, thickness of core, and thickness of inner plies; width; and length); wood species used for the face, back and inner veneers; core composition; and face grade. Multilayered wood flooring included within the definition of subject merchandise may be unfinished (i.e., without a finally finished surface to protect the face veneer from wear and tear) or ‘‘prefinished’’ (i.e., a coating applied to the face veneer, including, but not exclusively, oil or oil-modified or water-based polyurethanes, ultraviolet light cured polyurethanes, wax, epoxy-ester finishes, moisture-cured urethanes and acid-curing formaldehyde finishes.) The veneers may be also soaked in an acrylic-impregnated finish. All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise regardless of whether the face (or back) of the product is smooth, wire brushed, distressed by any method or multiple methods, or hand-scraped. In addition, all multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise regardless of whether or not it is manufactured with any interlocking or connecting mechanism (for example, tongue-and-groove construction or locking joints). All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of the subject merchandise regardless of whether the product meets 1 A ‘‘veneer’’ is a thin slice of wood, rotary cut, sliced or sawed from a log, bolt or flitch. Veneer is referred to as a ply when assembled. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 a particular industry or similar standard. The core of multilayered wood flooring may be composed of a range of materials, including but not limited to hardwood or softwood veneer, particleboard, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), high-density fiberboard (HDF), stone and/or plastic composite, or strips of lumber placed edge-to-edge. Multilayered wood flooring products generally, but not exclusively, may be in the form of a strip, plank, or other geometrical patterns (e.g., circular, hexagonal). All multilayered wood flooring products are included within this definition regardless of the actual or nominal dimensions or form of the product. Specifically excluded from the scope are cork flooring and bamboo flooring, regardless of whether any of the subsurface layers of either flooring are made from wood. Also excluded is laminate flooring. Laminate flooring consists of a top wear layer sheet not made of wood, a decorative paper layer, a core-layer of high-density fiberboard, and a stabilizing bottom layer.

Determination of Antidumping Duty Investigation on Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Allegations of Ministerial Errors,’’ dated June 20, 2011 (‘‘Ministerial Error Memo’’). Significant Ministerial Error Ministerial errors are defined in section 735(e) of the Act as ‘‘errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type of unintentional error which the administering authority considers ministerial.’’ Section 351.224(e) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Department ‘‘will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination * * *.’’ See 19 CFR 361.224(e). A significant ministerial error is defined as a ministerial error, the correction of which, either singly or in combination with other errors, would result in (1) A change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the weightedaverage dumping margin calculated in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination, or (2) a difference between a weighted-average dumping margin of zero (or de minimis) and a weighted-average dumping margin of greater than de minimis or vice versa. See 19 CFR 351.224(g). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g)(1), the Department is amending the preliminary determination of sales at less than fair value in the antidumping duty investigation of multilayered wood flooring from the PRC to reflect the correction of significant ministerial errors it made in the margin calculations regarding the mandatory respondent in this investigation, the Samling Group. See also Memorandum from Brandon Petelin and Erin Kearney, International Trade Analysts to Abdelali Elouaradia, Office Director, ‘‘Preliminary The Samling Group argues that the Department committed a ministerial error by failing to deduct all price adjustments reported in the Sampling Group’s other discounts. The Department disagrees and finds that it intentionally deducted certain price adjustments from U.S. price, while intentionally not deducting price adjustments related to warranty expenses. Therefore, we find this calculation is not an error on its part. See id. at 3–4. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:51 Jun 24, 2011 Jkt 223001 Ministerial Error Allegation a. Manufacturing Overhead Ratio The Samling Group argues that the Department erred by inadvertently applying an incorrect ratio for the Samling Group’s manufacturing overhead ratio in the calculation of normal value. The Department agrees, and finds that this error qualifies as a ministerial error in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. See Ministerial Error Memo at 2–3. b. Deduction of Warranty Expenses c. Supplier Distance The Samling Group argues that the Department committed a ministerial error by applying actual supplier distance for one of its raw materials instead of applying the shortest distance from the factory to the nearest port. The Department agrees, and finds that this error qualifies as a ministerial error in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. See id. at 4. The Department determines that correcting these errors would result in a change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the weighted-average dumping margin calculated in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination, and thus has corrected these errors. As a result, the Department has recalculated the Samling Group’s preliminary margin. d. Separate Rate Status of a Separate Rate Applicant Vicwood claims that the Department erred by not including its exporters’ names in the preliminary determination. The Department disagrees that it committed a ministerial error by omitting Vicwood’s exporters’ names. See id. at 4. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37317 PRC-Wide Rate In the preliminary determination the Department found that the use of adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) is appropriate to determine the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Determination, at 30662. The petition identified rates of 194.49 and 280.60 percent.2 These rates are higher than any of the calculated rates assigned to individually examined companies. Thus, as AFA, the Department’s practice would be to assign the rate of 280.60 percent to the PRC-wide entity. Section 776(c) of the Act, however, requires the Department to corroborate, to the extent practicable, secondary information used as facts available. While there were U.S. prices within the range of the prices contained in the petition, the normal value information contained in the petition does not have probative value for purposes of this preliminary determination. Thus, with respect to AFA, for the preliminary determination, we assigned the PRC-wide entity the rate of 82.65 percent, the highest calculated transaction-specific rate among mandatory respondents. See Preliminary Determination, at 30662. For the amended preliminary determination, we have assigned the PRC-wide entity a margin of 27.12 percent, the highest calculated transaction-specific rate among mandatory respondents after correcting the significant ministerial errors. No corroboration of this rate is necessary because we are relying on information obtained in the course of this investigation, rather than secondary information.3 Margin for the Separate Rate Companies As discussed above, the Department has preliminarily determined that in addition to the individually investigated entities, 73 other companies have demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate. Normally, the Department’s practice is to establish a separate rate margin for these entities based on the average of the rates we calculated for the mandatory respondents, excluding any rates that were zero, de minimis, or based entirely 2 See Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Investigation, 75 FR 70714 (November 18, 2010). 3 See 19 CFR 351.308(c) and (d) and section 776(c) of the Act; see also Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, in Part: Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube from the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 35652, 35653 (June 24, 2008), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at 1. E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1 37318 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 123 / Monday, June 27, 2011 / Notices on AFA.4 In the instant investigation, all calculated margins were equal to zero or de minimis. Therefore, we have used the simple average of the mandatory respondents and PRC-wide entity to obtain the separate rate of 6.78 percent.5 Amended Preliminary Determination We are publishing this amended preliminary determination pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e). As a result of this amended preliminary determination, we have revised the antidumping rate for Samling Group. In addition, we have revised the separate rate based on the mandatory respondents’ revised dumping margin. As a result of our correction of significant ministerial errors in the Preliminary Determination, we have determined that the following weightedaverage dumping margins apply: Weighted average margin mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Exporter Producer Zhejiang Layo Wood Industry Co., Ltd ..........................................

Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People's Republic of China: 
Notice of Amended Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: June 27, 2011.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``Department'') has determined 
that it made certain significant ministerial errors in the preliminary 
determination of sales at less than fair value in the antidumping duty 
investigation of multilayered wood flooring from the People's Republic 
of China (``PRC''), as described below in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION 
section of this notice. The Department has corrected these errors and 
has re-calculated the antidumping duty margin for a mandatory 
respondent, for exporters eligible for a separate rate, and for the 
PRC-wide rate, as described below in the ``Amended Preliminary 
Determination'' section of this notice.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Charles Riggle, Import Administration, 
International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th 
Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 
482-0650.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    On May 26, 2011, the Department published its affirmative 
preliminary determination in this proceeding that multilayered wood 
flooring from the PRC is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United 
States at less than fair value, as provided by section 773 of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ``Act''). See Multilayered Wood 
Flooring From the People's Republic of China: Notice of Preliminary 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 76 FR 30656 (May 26, 
2011) (``Preliminary Determination'').
    On May 31, 2011, Riverside Plywood Corporation, Samling Elegant 
Living Trading (Labuan) Limited, Samling Global USA, Inc., Samling 
Riverside Co., Ltd. and Suzhou Times Flooring (collectively, the 
``Samling Group'') and Vicwood Industry (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. 
(``Vicwood'') submitted timely ministerial error allegations with 
respect to the Department's Preliminary Determination. Therefore, in 
accordance to section 351.224(e) of the Department's regulations, we 
have made changes, as discussed below, to the Preliminary 
Determination.

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation (``POI'') is April 1, 2010, through 
September 30, 2010. This period corresponds to the two most recent 
fiscal quarters prior to the month of the filing of the petition, which 
was October 2010. See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1).

Scope of Investigation

    Multilayered wood flooring is composed of an assembly of two or 
more layers or plies of wood veneer(s) \1\ in combination with a core. 
The several layers, along with the core, are glued or otherwise bonded 
together to form a final assembled product. Multilayered wood flooring 
is often referred to by other terms, e.g., ``engineered wood flooring'' 
or ``plywood flooring.'' Regardless of the particular terminology, all 
products that meet the description set forth herein are intended for 
inclusion within the definition of subject merchandise.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ A ``veneer'' is a thin slice of wood, rotary cut, sliced or 
sawed from a log, bolt or flitch. Veneer is referred to as a ply 
when assembled.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of 
subject merchandise, without regard to: dimension (overall thickness, 
thickness of face ply, thickness of back ply, thickness of core, and 
thickness of inner plies; width; and length); wood species used for the 
face, back and inner veneers; core composition; and face grade. 
Multilayered wood flooring included within the definition of subject 
merchandise may be unfinished (i.e., without a finally finished surface 
to protect the face veneer from wear and tear) or ``prefinished'' 
(i.e., a coating applied to the face veneer, including, but not 
exclusively, oil or oil-modified or water-based polyurethanes, ultra-
violet light cured polyurethanes, wax, epoxy-ester finishes, moisture-
cured urethanes and acid-curing formaldehyde finishes.) The veneers may 
be also soaked in an acrylic-impregnated finish. All multilayered wood 
flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise 
regardless of whether the face (or back) of the product is smooth, wire 
brushed, distressed by any method or multiple methods, or hand-scraped. 
In addition, all multilayered wood flooring is included within the 
definition of subject merchandise regardless of whether or not it is 
manufactured with any interlocking or connecting mechanism (for 
example, tongue-and-groove construction or locking joints). All 
multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of the 
subject merchandise regardless of whether the product meets a 
particular industry or similar standard.
    The core of multilayered wood flooring may be composed of a range 
of materials, including but not limited to hardwood or softwood veneer, 
particleboard, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), high-density fiberboard 
(HDF), stone and/or plastic composite, or strips of lumber placed edge-
to-edge.
    Multilayered wood flooring products generally, but not exclusively, 
may be in the form of a strip, plank, or other geometrical patterns 
(e.g., circular, hexagonal). All multilayered wood flooring products 
are included within this definition regardless of the actual or nominal 
dimensions or form of the product.
    Specifically excluded from the scope are cork flooring and bamboo 
flooring, regardless of whether any of the sub-surface layers of either 
flooring are made from wood. Also excluded is laminate flooring. 
Laminate flooring consists of a top wear layer sheet not made of wood, 
a decorative paper layer, a core-layer of high-density fiberboard, and 
a stabilizing bottom layer. Imports of the subject merchandise are 
provided for under the following subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS): 4412.31.0520; 4412.31.0540;

Significant Ministerial Error

    Ministerial errors are defined in section 735(e) of the Act as 
``errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, 
clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the 
like, and any other type of unintentional error which the administering 
authority considers ministerial.'' Section 351.224(e) of the 
Department's regulations provides that the Department ``will analyze 
any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any significant 
ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination * * *.'' 
See 19 CFR 361.224(e). A significant ministerial error is defined as a 
ministerial error, the correction of which, either singly or in 
combination with other errors, would result in (1) A change of at least 
five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, 
the weighted-average dumping margin calculated in the original 
(erroneous) preliminary determination, or (2) a difference between a 
weighted-average dumping margin of zero (or de minimis) and a weighted-
average dumping margin of greater than de minimis or vice versa. See 19 
CFR 351.224(g).
    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g)(1), the Department is 
amending the preliminary determination of sales at less than fair value 
in the antidumping duty investigation of multilayered wood flooring 
from the PRC to reflect the correction of significant ministerial 
errors it made in the margin calculations regarding the mandatory 
respondent in this investigation, the Samling Group. See also 
Memorandum from Brandon Petelin and Erin Kearney, International Trade 
Analysts to Abdelali Elouaradia, Office Director, ``Preliminary 
Determination of Antidumping Duty Investigation on Multilayered Wood 
Flooring from the People's Republic of China: Allegations of 
Ministerial Errors,'' dated June 20, 2011 (``Ministerial Error Memo'').

Ministerial Error Allegation

a. Manufacturing Overhead Ratio

    The Samling Group argues that the Department erred by inadvertently 
applying an incorrect ratio for the Samling Group's manufacturing 
overhead ratio in the calculation of normal value. The Department 
agrees, and finds that this error qualifies as a ministerial error in 
accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. See Ministerial Error Memo 
at 2-3.

b. Deduction of Warranty Expenses

    The Samling Group argues that the Department committed a 
ministerial error by failing to deduct all price adjustments reported 
in the Sampling Group's other discounts. The Department disagrees and 
finds that it intentionally deducted certain price adjustments from 
U.S. price, while intentionally not deducting price adjustments related 
to warranty expenses. Therefore, we find this calculation is not an 
error on its part. See id. at 3-4.

c. Supplier Distance

    The Samling Group argues that the Department committed a 
ministerial error by applying actual supplier distance for one of its 
raw materials instead of applying the shortest distance from the 
factory to the nearest port. The Department agrees, and finds that this 
error qualifies as a ministerial error in accordance with section 
735(e) of the Act. See id. at 4.
    The Department determines that correcting these errors would result 
in a change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not 
less than 25 percent of, the weighted-average dumping margin calculated 
in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination, and thus has 
corrected these errors. As a result, the Department has recalculated 
the Samling Group's preliminary margin.

d. Separate Rate Status of a Separate Rate Applicant

    Vicwood claims that the Department erred by not including its 
exporters' names in the preliminary determination. The Department 
disagrees that it committed a ministerial error by omitting Vicwood's 
exporters' names. See id. at 4.

PRC-Wide Rate

    In the preliminary determination the Department found that the use 
of adverse facts available (``AFA'') is appropriate to determine the 
PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Determination, at 30662. The petition 
identified rates of 194.49 and 280.60 percent.\2\ These rates are 
higher than any of the calculated rates assigned to individually 
examined companies. Thus, as AFA, the Department's practice would be to 
assign the rate of 280.60 percent to the PRC-wide entity. Section 
776(c) of the Act, however, requires the Department to corroborate, to 
the extent practicable, secondary information used as facts available. 
While there were U.S. prices within the range of the prices contained 
in the petition, the normal value information contained in the petition 
does not have probative value for purposes of this preliminary 
determination. Thus, with respect to AFA, for the preliminary 
determination, we assigned the PRC-wide entity the rate of 82.65 
percent, the highest calculated transaction-specific rate among 
mandatory respondents. See Preliminary Determination, at 30662. For the 
amended preliminary determination, we have assigned the PRC-wide entity 
a margin of 27.12 percent, the highest calculated transaction-specific 
rate among mandatory respondents after correcting the significant 
ministerial errors. No corroboration of this rate is necessary because 
we are relying on information obtained in the course of this 
investigation, rather than secondary information.\3\

China: Initiation of Antidumping Investigation, 75 FR 70714

China, 73 FR 35652, 35653 (June 24, 2008), and accompanying Issues 
and Decision Memorandum at 1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Margin for the Separate Rate Companies

    As discussed above, the Department has preliminarily determined 
that in addition to the individually investigated entities, 73 other 
companies have demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate. 
Normally, the Department's practice is to establish a separate rate 
margin for these entities based on the average of the rates we 
calculated for the mandatory respondents, excluding any rates that were 
zero, de minimis, or based entirely

[[Page 37318]]

on AFA.\4\ In the instant investigation, all calculated margins were 
equal to zero or de minimis. Therefore, we have used the simple average 
of the mandatory respondents and PRC-wide entity to obtain the separate 
rate of 6.78 percent.\5\

Amended Preliminary Determination

    We are publishing this amended preliminary determination pursuant 
to 19 CFR 351.224(e). As a result of this amended preliminary 
determination, we have revised the antidumping rate for Samling Group. 
In addition, we have revised the separate rate based on the mandatory 
respondents' revised dumping margin.
    As a result of our correction of significant ministerial errors in 
the Preliminary Determination, we have determined that the following 
weighted-average dumping margins apply:

    The collection of bonds or cash deposits and suspension of 
liquidation will be revised according to the rates calculated in these 
amended preliminary results. Because these amended rates result in a 
reduced bond or cash deposit, they will be effective retroactively to 
May 26, 2011, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination, 
and parties will be notified of this determination, in accordance with 
section 733(d) and (f) of the Act.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 733(f) of the Act, we have notified the 
International Trade Commission (``ITC'') of our amended preliminary 
determination. If our final determination is affirmative, the ITC will 
determine before the later of 120 days after the date of the 
preliminary determination or 45 days after our final determination 
whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially 
injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports, or 
sales (or the likelihood of sales) for importation, of the subject 
merchandise.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 733(f) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e).

    Dated: June 20, 2011.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
