A list of the issues raised is attached to this notice as an Appendix. 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).8 ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.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 Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/ index.html. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and 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 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.9 For a full description of the methodology underlying all of the Department’s conclusions, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review There are 58 companies 10 for which a review was requested and not rescinded, but were not selected as mandatory respondents. We did not calculate the non-selected rate by weight-averaging the rates of the Alnan Companies and Jiangsu Changfa, the companies selected for individual examination (mandatory respondents), using their actual export sales of subject merchandise to the United States for the POR, 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 ‘‘Ad Valorem Rate for Non-Selected Companies under Review’’ in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Rate for Non-Cooperatives Under Review There are four companies that did not respond to the Department’s Quantity and Value Questionnaire. For those noncooperative companies, we calculated an adverse facts available rate (AFA). For further information on the calculation of the AFA rate, see ‘‘Ad Valorem Rate for Non-Cooperative Companies under Review’’ in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

The Final Rule changing the references to the regulations can be

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 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.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ 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 the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    There are 58 companies \10\ for which a review was requested and 
not rescinded, but were not selected as mandatory respondents. We did 
not calculate the non-selected rate by weight-averaging the rates of 
the Alnan Companies and Jiangsu Changfa, the companies selected for 
individual examination (mandatory respondents), using their actual 
export sales of subject merchandise to the United States for the POR, 
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 ``Ad Valorem Rate for Non-
Selected Companies under Review'' in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ The Preliminary Results stated 59 companies. For the final 
results, there are 58 companies because of the removal of one 
company. See Comment 22 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rate for Non-Cooperatives Under Review

    There are four companies that did not respond to the Department's 
Quantity and Value Questionnaire. For those non-cooperative companies, 
we calculated an adverse facts available rate (AFA). For further 
information on the calculation of the AFA rate, see ``Ad Valorem Rate 
for Non-Cooperative Companies under Review'' in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.

Final Results of the Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated the listed 
net subsidy rates for 2012:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ The Alnan Companies are the producer of subject 
merchandise, and Kromet is the exporter. The rate applies to subject 
merchandise produced and/or exported by any of the named companies.
