The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Methodology The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we preliminarily determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific. See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity. In making these findings, we have relied, in part, on facts available and, because the Government of the PRC did not act to the best of its ability to respond to the Department’s requests for information, we have drawn an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available. See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. For further information, see ‘‘Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences’’ in the Preliminary Determination Memorandum. For a full description of the methodology underlying the Department’s conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine a net countervailable subsidy rate of 13.67 percent ad valorem for the RZBC Companies, for the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011.

See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity. In making these preliminary findings, we are relying, in part, on facts available because the Government of the PRC did not act to the best of its ability to respond to the Department’s requests for information. Further, we are drawing an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available. See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. For further information, see ‘‘Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Additionally, we are relying on facts available for three companies 5 because they withheld requested information did not act to the best of their ability to respond to the Department’s quantity and value questionnaire. To calculate the ad valorem rate for these companies, we have drawn an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.6 For derivation of the adverse facts available rate, see ‘‘Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. For a full description of the methodology underlying all of the Department’s conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review There are 49 companies for which a review was requested and not rescinded, but were not selected as mandatory respondents. We are assigning to those companies an average of the subsidy rates calculated for the mandatory respondents for 2010 and 2011, respectively. For further information on the calculation of the non-selected rate, see ‘‘Preliminary Ad Valorem Rate for Non-Selected Companies under Review’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 I. Abstract This request is for extension of a current information collection. On May 30, 2007, NMFS published a final rule (72 FR 29891) implementing a requirement under the CPS FMP to report any interactions that may occur between a CPS vessel and/or fishing gear and sea otters. Specifically, these reporting requirements are: 1. If a southern sea otter is entangled in a net, regardless of whether the animal is injured or killed, such an occurrence must be reported within 24 hours to the Regional Administrator, NMFS Southwest Region. 2. While fishing for CPS, vessel operators must record all observations of otter interactions (defined as otters within encircled nets or coming into contact with nets or vessels, including but not limited to entanglement) with their purse seine net(s) or vessel(s). With the exception of an entanglement, which will be initially reported as described in No. 1 above, all other observations must be reported within 20 days to the Regional Administrator.

    The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on

Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). 
IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov 
and in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of 
Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the 
electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical 
in content.

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For each 
of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we preliminarily find 
that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial 
contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that 
the subsidy is specific. See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act 
regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act 
regarding benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding 
specificity.
    In making these preliminary findings, we are relying, in part, on 
facts available because the Government of the PRC did not act to the 
best of its ability to respond to the Department's requests for 
information. Further, we are drawing an adverse inference in selecting 
from among the facts otherwise available. See sections 776(a) and (b) 
of the Act. For further information, see ``Use of Facts Otherwise 
Available and Adverse Inferences'' in the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.
    Additionally, we are relying on facts available for three companies 
\5\ because they withheld requested information did not act to the best 
of their ability to respond to the Department's quantity and value 
questionnaire. To calculate the ad valorem rate for these companies, we 
have drawn an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts 
otherwise available.\6\ For derivation of the adverse facts available 
rate, see ``Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences'' 
in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ Foshan Yong Li Jian Alu. Ltd., North China Aluminum Co., 
Ltd., and Taishan City Kam Kiu Aluminum Extrusion Co., Ltd.
    \6\ See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For a full description of the methodology underlying all of the 
Department's conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    There are 49 companies for which a review was requested and not 
rescinded, but were not selected as mandatory respondents. We are 
assigning to those companies an average of the subsidy rates calculated 
for the mandatory respondents for 2010 and 2011, respectively. For 
further information on the calculation of the non-selected rate, see 
``Preliminary Ad Valorem Rate for Non-Selected Companies under Review'' 
in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the listed 
net subsidy rates for 2010 and 2011:
