IA ACCESS is available to registered users at https://iaaccess.trade.gov and is available to all parties 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 https://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/ index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Methodology The Department 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.5 For a full description of the methodology underlying all of the Department’s conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review There are 59 companies for which a review was requested and not rescinded, but were not selected as mandatory respondents. We preliminarily did not calculate the nonselected rate by weight-averaging the rates of the Alnan Companies and Jiangsu Changfa, companies selected for individual examination (mandatory respondents), because doing so risks disclosure of proprietary information. We, therefore, calculated an average rate using the mandatory respondents’ publicly-ranged sales data for 2012. 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.

The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Methodology The Department 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 financial contribution from an authority that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.1 In making these findings, we 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 drew an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.2 For further information, see ‘‘Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. For a full description of the methodology underlying the Department’s conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine a net countervailable subsidy rate of 11.68 percent ad valorem for the RZBC Companies, for the period January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012. Disclosure and Public Comment The Department will disclose to parties to this proceeding the calculations performed in reaching the preliminary results within five days of the date of publication of these 1 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. 2 See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an 
administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on 
aluminum extrusions from the People's Republic of China (PRC). The 
period of review (POR) is January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012. 
We preliminary determine that the Alnan Companies \1\ and Jiangsu 
Changfa Refrigeration Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu Changfa) received 
countervailable subsidies during the POR. Interested parties are 
invited to comment on these preliminary results of review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Alnan Companies are Alnan Aluminum Co., Ltd. (Alnan 
Aluminum), Alnan Aluminum Foil Co., Ltd. (Alnan Foil), Alnan 
(Shanglin) Industry Co., Ltd. (Shanglin Industry), and Shanglin 
Alnan Aluminum Comprehensive Utilization Power Co., Ltd. (Shanglin 
Power). Kromet International Inc., one of the selected mandatory 
respondents in this administrative review, reported that it is a 
Canada-based company that sold subject merchandise produced by the 
Alnan Companies to the United States during the review period.

    The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on 
file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). 
IA ACCESS is available to registered users at https://iaaccess.trade.gov 
and is available to all parties 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 https://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The 
signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Methodology

    The Department 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.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Preliminary Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    There are 59 companies for which a review was requested and not 
rescinded, but were not selected as mandatory respondents. We 
preliminarily did not calculate the non-selected rate by weight-
averaging the rates of the Alnan Companies and Jiangsu Changfa, 
companies selected for individual examination (mandatory respondents), 
because doing so risks disclosure of proprietary information. We, 
therefore, calculated an average rate using the mandatory respondents' 
publicly-ranged sales data for 2012. 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 2012:
