SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) determines that countervailable subsidies are being provided to producers and exporters of certain biaxial integral geogrid products (‘‘geogrids’’) from the People’s Republic of China (the ‘‘PRC’’). The period of investigation is January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2015. For information on the estimated subsidy rates, see the ‘‘Suspension of Liquidation’’ section of this notice. DATES: Effective January 11, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bob Palmer or Ryan Mullen, AD/CVD Operations, Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone 202–482–9068 or 202–482–5260, respectively. AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The petitioner in this investigation is Tensar Corporation (‘‘Petitioner’’). In addition to the Government of China (‘‘GOC’’), the mandatory respondents in this investigation are BOSTD Geosynthetics Qingdao Ltd. and its crossed-owned company Beijing Orient Science & Technology Development Co., Ltd. (‘‘BOSTD’’), and Taian Modern Plastic Co., Ltd. (‘‘Taian Modern’’). The Department published its Preliminary Determination on June 24, 2016, and its Amended Preliminary Determination on July 26, 2016.1 A complete summary of the events that occurred since the Preliminary Determination, as well as a full discussion of the issues raised by parties for this final determination, may be found in the ‘‘Countervailing Duty Investigation of Certain Biaxial Integral Geogrid Products from the People’s Republic of China: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Affirmative Determination,’’ 2 which is dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is available electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘ACCESS’’). Access to ACCESS is available to registered users at https:// access.trade.gov and to all parties in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the Department’s main building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be viewed at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version are identical in content. Methodology The Department conducted this countervailing duty (‘‘CVD’’) investigation in accordance with section 701 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 by an ‘‘authority’’ that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient) and that the subsidy is specific. For a full description of the methodology underlying our preliminary conclusions, see the Issues and Decisions Memo. Scope of the Investigation The products covered by this investigation are geogrids from the PRC. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see Appendix II. Analysis of Subsidy Programs and Comments Received All issues raised in the comments filed by interested parties to this proceeding are discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by interested parties and responded to by the Department in the Issues and Decisions Memo are attached at Appendix II to this notice. Use of Adverse Facts Available For purposes of this final determination, we relied, in part, on facts available and, because certain respondents did not act to the best of their ability to respond to the Department’s requests for information, we drew an adverse inference, where appropriate, in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.3 A full discussion of our decision to rely on adverse facts available is presented in the ‘‘Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences’’ section of the Issues and Decisions Memo. Final Determination In accordance with sections 705(c)(1)(B)(i)(I) and 705(c)(5)(A)(i) of the Act, we calculated an estimated countervailable subsidy rate for each producer/exporter of the subject merchandise individually investigated. These rates are: Company Subsidy rate sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES BOSTD Geosynthetics Qingdao Ltd. and Beijing Orient Science & Technology Development Co., Ltd .....................................
