SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) conducted an administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on certain pasta from Italy. On August 25, 2014, we published the Preliminary Results for this administrative review.1 The period of review (POR) is January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. We find that DeMatteis Agroalimentare S.p.A. (also known as, De Matteis Agroalimentare SpA) (DeMatteis) received countervailable subsidies during the POR, and that Fratelli DeCecco di Filippo Fara San Martino S.p.A. (also known as, F.lli De Cecco di Filippo Fara San Martino S.p.A.) (DeCecco) received de minimis countervailable subsidies during the POR.

On October 30, 2014, we issued a postpreliminary analysis memorandum.2 We invited interested parties to file case briefs and rebuttal briefs following the release of the post-preliminary analysis memorandum.

A full description of the scope of the Order is contained in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for Final Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: Certain Pasta from Italy,’’ from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, dated February 23, 2015 (Issues and Decision Memorandum), and 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 (ACCESS).4 ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and available to all parties in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department building.

The signed and electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of topics discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is provided in the Appendix to this notice. Methodology We have 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 government-provided financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.5 In making these findings, we have relied, in part, on an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available because we find that the GOI did not act to the best of its ability to respond to our requests for information regarding certain programs.6 DeMatteis reported that it made export sales of pasta to the United States through an unaffiliated trading company, Agritalia S.r.L. (Agritalia), during the POR. In the Preliminary Results, we stated our intent to reexamine the approach we used regarding subsidies to Agritalia in the Tenth Administrative Review,7 and we solicited comments in that regard.8 We received no comments on this issue. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(b) and 19 CFR 351.221(b), Agritalia is not a respondent in this review because a review was not requested for Agritalia. However, pursuant to 19 CFR 11173 351.525(c), benefits from subsidies provided to a trading company which exports subject merchandise shall be cumulated with benefits from subsidies provided to the firm that is producing the subject merchandise that is sold through the trading company, regardless of whether the trading company and the producing firm are affiliated. Thus, for these final results, we are cumulating the benefits from subsidies received by Agritalia with the benefits from subsidies received by DeMatteis based on the percentage of DeMatteis’ exports of subject merchandise to the United States that were made through Agritalia during the POR.9 Final Results of the Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated individual subsidy rates for the mandatory respondents, DeMatteis and DeCecco. Three respondents were not selected for individual review: Ghigi Industria Agroalimentare in San Clemente srl, Pasta Granoro S.r.L. (also known as, Pastifico Attilio Mastromauro Granoro S.r.L), and Valdigrano di Flavio Pagani S.r.L. For these non-selected respondents, we assigned the CVD rate calculated for DeMatteis because it is the only rate calculated in this review that is not de minimis.10 As such, we find the net countervailable subsidy rate for the producers and/or exporters under review to be as follows: Net subsidy rate Producer/exporter DeMatteis Agroalimentare S.p.A.

Certain Pasta From Italy: Final Results of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review; 2012

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) conducted an 
administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on certain 
pasta from Italy. On August 25, 2014, we published the Preliminary 
Results for this administrative review.\1\ The period of review (POR) 
is January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. We find that DeMatteis 
Agroalimentare S.p.A. (also known as, De Matteis Agroalimentare SpA) 
(DeMatteis) received countervailable subsidies during the POR, and that 
Fratelli DeCecco di Filippo Fara San Martino S.p.A. (also known as, 
F.lli De Cecco di Filippo Fara San Martino S.p.A.) (DeCecco) received 
de minimis countervailable subsidies during the POR. As such, we are 
applying DeMatteis' rate to the other firms subject to this review that 
were not individually examined.

programs to a post-preliminary analysis. On October 30, 2014, we issued 
a post-preliminary analysis memorandum.\2\ We invited interested 
parties to file case briefs and rebuttal briefs following the release 
of the post-preliminary analysis memorandum. Only the Government of 
Italy (the GOI) filed a case brief.

Methodology

    We have 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 government-provided financial contribution that 
gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is 
specific.\5\ In making these findings, we have relied, in part, on an 
adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available 
because we find that the GOI did not act to the best of its ability to 
respond to our requests for information regarding certain programs.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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 our conclusions, see 
Issues and Decision Memorandum.
    \6\ See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. For further 
discussion, see Issues and Decision Memorandum at ``Use of Facts 
Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    DeMatteis reported that it made export sales of pasta to the United 
States through an unaffiliated trading company, Agritalia S.r.L. 
(Agritalia), during the POR. In the Preliminary Results, we stated our 
intent to re-examine the approach we used regarding subsidies to 
Agritalia in the Tenth Administrative Review,\7\ and we solicited 
comments in that regard.\8\ We received no comments on this issue.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Certain Pasta from Italy: Preliminary Results of the 
Tenth Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 43616, 43622 
(August 6, 2007), unchanged in Certain Pasta From Italy: Final 
Results of the Tenth (2005) Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Review, 73 FR 7251 (February 7, 2008) (collectively, Tenth 
Administrative Review).
    \8\ See Preliminary Results, 79 FR 50619.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(b) and 19 CFR 351.221(b), Agritalia is 
not a respondent in this review because a review was not requested for 
Agritalia. However, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.525(c), benefits from 
subsidies provided to a trading company which exports subject 
merchandise shall be cumulated with benefits from subsidies provided to 
the firm that is producing the subject merchandise that is sold through 
the trading company, regardless of whether the trading company and the 
producing firm are affiliated. Thus, for these final results, we are 
cumulating the benefits from subsidies received by Agritalia with the 
benefits from subsidies received by DeMatteis based on the percentage 
of DeMatteis' exports of subject merchandise to the United States that 
were made through Agritalia during the POR.\9\

at ``Subsidy Valuation Information.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated individual 
subsidy rates for the mandatory respondents, DeMatteis and DeCecco.
    Three respondents were not selected for individual review: Ghigi 
Industria Agroalimentare in San Clemente srl, Pasta Granoro S.r.L. 
(also known as, Pastifico Attilio Mastromauro Granoro S.r.L), and 
Valdigrano di Flavio Pagani S.r.L. For these non-selected respondents, 
we assigned the CVD rate calculated for DeMatteis because it is the 
only rate calculated in this review that is not de minimis.\10\ As 
such, we find the net countervailable subsidy rate for the producers 
and/or exporters under review to be as follows:

Assessment Rates

    Consistent with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), we intend to issue assessment 
instructions to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) fifteen 
days after the date of publication of these final results. We will 
instruct CBP to assess countervailing duties on POR entries in the 
amounts shown above, except for entries of merchandise produced and/or 
exported by DeCecco, which will be liquidated without regard to 
countervailing duties because its subsidy rate is de minimis.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Act, we intend to 
instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing 
duties in the amounts shown above on shipments of subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn

[[Page 11174]]

from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of 
the final results of this review, except that cash deposits of zero 
percent will be required for entries from DeCecco because its subsidy 
rate is de minimis. For all non-reviewed companies (except Barilla G. e 
R. F.lli S.p.A. and Gruppo Agricoltura Sana S.r.l., which are excluded 
from the order,\11\ and Pasta Lensi S.r.l., which was revoked from the 
Order),\12\ we will instruct CBP to continue to collect cash deposits 
at the most recent company-specific or all-others rate applicable to 
the company. Accordingly, the cash deposit rates that will be applied 
to companies covered by the 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.
