SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) conducted an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on multilayered wood flooring (wood flooring) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC).1 On January 27, 2014, the Department published the Preliminary Results for this administrative review.2 The period of review (POR) is April 6, 2011, through December 31, 2011. This review covered multiple exporters/ producers, two of which were individually reviewed as mandatory respondents, with another being individually reviewed as a voluntary respondent. The Department finds that the mandatory respondents, Armstrong Wood Products (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. (also known as, ‘‘Armstrong Wood Products Kunshan Co., Ltd.’’) (Armstrong) and The Lizhong Wood Industry Limited Company of Shanghai (also known as, ‘‘Shanghai Lizhong Wood Products Co., Ltd.’’) (Lizhong), as well as voluntary respondent, Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited (Fine Furniture), received countervailable subsidies during the POR. We are applying rates to the other firms subject to this review based on the countervailing duty rates calculated for the respondents individually examined. The Department also rescinds the review of one company, Changzhou Hawd Flooring Co., Ltd., that timely certified that it had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.

A full description of the scope of the Amended Order is contained in the memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Final Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by 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 (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 building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://trade.gov/enforcement/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Partial Rescission of Administrative Review On March 28, 2013, we received a timely filed no shipment certification from Changzhou Hawd Flooring Co., Ltd. Because there is no evidence on the record to indicate that this company had sales of subject merchandise during the POR, and no party objected to our intent to rescind as stated in the Preliminary Results, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we are rescinding the review with respect to Changzhou Hawd Flooring Co., Ltd. Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). A full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions is presented in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Results of the Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated individual subsidy rates for the mandatory respondents, Armstrong and Lizhong, as well as for the voluntary respondent, Fine Furniture. For the respondents not selected for individual review, we applied a subsidy rate based on an average of the subsidy rates calculated for those companies selected for individual review (i.e., the mandatory respondents), excluding de minimis rates or rates based entirely on adverse facts available.4 Therefore, we assigned to these companies the simple average of the rates calculated for Armstrong and Lizhong. We used a simple average and not a weighted average because weight averaging the rates of the two mandatory respondents risks the disclosure of proprietary information of each company to the other. We find the net subsidy rate for the producers/exporters under review to be as follows: Net subsidy rate tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Producer/exporter Armstrong Wood Products (Kunshan) Co., Ltd (also known as, ‘‘Armstrong Wood Products Kunshan Co., Ltd’’) ..........................

is April 6, 2011, through December 31, 2011. This review covered 
multiple exporters/producers, two of which were individually reviewed 
as mandatory respondents, with another being individually reviewed as a 
voluntary respondent. The Department finds that the mandatory 
respondents, Armstrong Wood Products (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. (also known 
as, ``Armstrong Wood Products Kunshan Co., Ltd.'') (Armstrong) and The 
Lizhong Wood Industry Limited Company of Shanghai (also known as, 
``Shanghai Lizhong Wood Products Co., Ltd.'') (Lizhong), as well as 
voluntary respondent, Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited (Fine 
Furniture), received countervailable subsidies during the POR. We are 
applying rates to the other firms subject to this review based on the 
countervailing duty rates calculated for the respondents individually 
examined. The Department also rescinds the review of one company, 
Changzhou Hawd Flooring Co., Ltd., that timely certified that it had no 
shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.

Review: Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People's Republic of 
China,'' dated concurrently with this notice (Issues and Decision 
Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by this notice.

identical in content.

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    On March 28, 2013, we received a timely filed no shipment 
certification from Changzhou Hawd Flooring Co., Ltd. Because there is 
no evidence on the record to indicate that this company had sales of 
subject merchandise during the POR, and no party objected to our intent 
to rescind as stated in the Preliminary Results, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(3), we are rescinding the review with respect to Changzhou 
Hawd Flooring Co., Ltd.

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). A full 
description of the methodology underlying our conclusions is presented 
in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of the Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated 
individual subsidy rates for the mandatory respondents, Armstrong and 
Lizhong, as well as for the voluntary respondent, Fine Furniture.
    For the respondents not selected for individual review, we applied 
a subsidy rate based on an average of the subsidy rates calculated for 
those companies selected for individual review (i.e., the mandatory 
respondents), excluding de minimis rates or rates based entirely on 
adverse facts available.\4\ Therefore, we assigned to these companies 
the simple average of the rates calculated for Armstrong and Lizhong. 
We used a simple average and not a weighted average because weight 
averaging the rates of the two mandatory respondents risks the 
disclosure of proprietary information of each company to the other.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of these final results, the U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess countervailing duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 
15 days after publication of these final results.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Act, the Department 
intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated 
countervailing duties in the amounts shown above on shipments of 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of 
this review. For all non-reviewed companies, we will instruct CBP to 
continue to collect cash deposits at the most recent company-specific 
or country-wide rate applicable to the company. Accordingly, the cash 
deposit rates that will be applied to companies covered by the Amended 
Order, but not examined in this review, are those established in the 
most recently completed segment of the proceeding for each company. 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    This administrative review and notice are in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: July 28, 2014.
