The signed Final Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Final 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 determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution from an ‘‘authority’’ that confers a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.7 For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Final Decision Memorandum. In making these findings, we relied, in part, on facts available and, because the GOC 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.8 For further information, see ‘‘Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences’’ in the Final Decision Memorandum. Final Results of the Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we determine a net countervailable subsidy rate of 17.55 percent ad valorem for the RZBC Companies. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Instructions The Department also intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated CVDs in the amount shown above on shipments of subject merchandise by the RZBC Companies entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 31, 2014, the Department published its affirmative preliminary determination that 53-foot domestic dry containers (‘‘domestic dry containers’’) from the PRC are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, as provided by section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’).1 On November 25, 2014, the Department disclosed to interested parties its calculations for the Preliminary Determination. On December 1, 2014, Hui Zhou Pacific Container Co., Ltd., Qingdao Pacific Container Co., Ltd., and Qidong Singamas Energy Equipment Co., Ltd. and their holding company Singamas Container Holdings Limited (collectively, ‘‘Singamas’’), a mandatory respondent in this investigation, submitted a timely ministerial error allegations with respect to the Preliminary Determination. In addition, on December 1, 2014, Stoughton Trailers LLC (‘‘Petitioner’’) submitted timely ministerial error allegations with respect to the Department’s calculation of the PRC-Wide entity rate. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we made changes, as discussed below, to the Preliminary Determination. Period of Investigation The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is October 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014. Scope of the Investigation The merchandise subject to investigation is closed (i.e., not open top) van containers exceeding 14.63 meters (48 feet) but generally measuring 16.154 meters (53 feet) in exterior length, which are designed for the intermodal transport 2 of goods other than bulk liquids within North America primarily by rail or by road vehicle, or by a combination of rail and road vehicle (domestic containers). The merchandise is known in the industry by varying terms including ‘‘53-foot containers,’’ ‘‘53-foot dry containers,’’ ‘‘53-foot domestic dry containers,’’ ‘‘domestic dry containers’’ and ‘‘domestic containers.’’ Imports of the subject merchandise are provided for under subheading 8609.00.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Imports of the subject merchandise which meet the definition of and requirements for ‘‘instruments of international traffic’’ pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1322 and 19 CFR 10.41a may be classified under subheading 9803.00.50, HTSUS.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 31, 2014, the Department published its affirmative 
preliminary determination that 53-foot domestic dry containers 
(``domestic dry containers'') from the PRC are being, or are likely to 
be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, as provided by 
section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'').\1\ On 
November 25, 2014, the Department disclosed to interested parties its 
calculations for the Preliminary Determination. On December 1, 2014, 
Hui Zhou Pacific Container Co., Ltd., Qingdao Pacific Container Co., 
Ltd., and Qidong Singamas Energy Equipment Co., Ltd. and their holding

Determination. In addition, on December 1, 2014, Stoughton Trailers LLC 
(``Petitioner'') submitted timely ministerial error allegations with 
respect to the Department's calculation of the PRC-Wide entity rate. 
Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we made changes, as 
discussed below, to the Preliminary Determination.

Significant Ministerial Errors

    Ministerial errors are defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) 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 Department considers 
ministerial.'' \3\ 19 CFR 351.224(e) provides that the Department 
``will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any 
significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination 
. . .'' \4\ 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.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See 19 CFR 351.224(f).
    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.224(e).

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g)(1), the Department is 
amending the preliminary determination of the less-than-fair-value 
investigation of 53-foot domestic dry containers from the PRC to 
reflect the corrections of significant ministerial errors it made in 
the weighted-average dumping margin calculations for Singamas, a 
mandatory respondent in this investigation, and for PRC-Wide entity.\6\

be revised according to the rates calculated in this amended 
preliminary determination. Because the amended rate for Singamas 
results in reduced cash deposits, the rate for Singamas will be 
effective retroactively to November 26, 2014, the date of publication 
of the Preliminary Determination. The rate for the PRC-wide entity will 
be effective upon publication of this notice. Parties will be notified 
of this determination, in accordance with sections 733(d) and (f) of
