On February 8, 2017, we received case briefs from the Government of the People’s Republic of China (GOC) and Fine Furniture.3 No party filed a rebuttal brief. Scope of the Order The product covered by the Order is multilayered wood flooring from the PRC. For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.4 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the parties’ briefs are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues addressed is attached to this notice at Appendix I.

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.5 The Issues and Decision Memorandum contains a full description of the methodology underlying the Department’s conclusions, including any determination that relied upon the use of adverse facts available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Partial Rescission of Administrative Review As noted in the Preliminary Results, the Department timely received noshipment certifications from Changbai Mountain Development and Protection Zone Hongtu Wood Industrial Co., Ltd., Shenyang Senwang Wooden Industry Co., Ltd., and Jiangsu Yuhui International Trade Co., Ltd. The Department stated its intention to rescind the review with respect to these companies. The Department inquired with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) whether these companies had shipped merchandise to the United States during the POR, and CBP provided no evidence to contradict the claims of no shipments made by these companies. Accordingly, the Department is rescinding the administrative review of these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). As noted in the Preliminary Results, three additional companies also filed timely no-shipment certifications: Henan Xingwangjia, Technology Co., Ltd., Dalian Xinjinghua Wood Co., Ltd., and Xuzhou Antop International Trade Co., Ltd. However, we continue to determine that there is sufficient evidence on the record of this review to conclude that these companies had reviewable transactions during the POR. Therefore, we are continuing to include these companies in this administrative review for the final results. Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review In this review, in addition to the two selected mandatory respondents, there are 104 companies for which a review was requested and not rescinded, but which were not selected for individual examination (non-selected respondents). To determine a rate for the non-selected respondents, we followed the 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:51 May 12, 2017 Jkt 241001 Department’s practice, which is to derive an average of the subsidy rates calculated for those companies selected for individual review, excluding de minimis rates or rates based entirely on adverse facts available. In this case, we assigned to the non-selected respondents the simple average of the rates calculated for Fine Furniture and Penghong. Instead of a weighted average, we are using a simple average as it provides a reasonable proxy for a weighted-average rate and protects business proprietary data otherwise necessary for deriving a weighted average.

Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People's Republic of China: 
Final Results and Partial Rescission of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review; 2014

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration,

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) has completed its 
administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on 
multilayered wood flooring (MLWF) from the People's Republic of China 
(PRC) for the January 1, 2014, through December 31, 2014, period of

Penghong Floor Products Co., Ltd. (Penghong) and Fine Furniture 
(Shanghai) Limited (Fine Furniture), and their cross-owned affiliates, 
where applicable, received countervailable subsidies during the POR. 
The final net subsidy rates are listed below in ``Final Results of 
Administrative Review.'' We are also rescinding the review for three 
companies that timely certified they made no shipments of subject 
merchandise during the POR.

DATES: Effective May 15, 2017.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the parties' briefs are addressed in the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues addressed is 
attached to this notice at Appendix I. 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). ACCESS is available to 
registered users at http://access.trade.gov and in the Central Records 
Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department building. In addition, a 
complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed 
directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. 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

[[Page 22312]]

751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (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.\5\ The Issues and Decision Memorandum contains a full 
description of the methodology underlying the Department's conclusions, 
including any determination that relied upon the use of adverse facts 
available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, the Department timely received 
no-shipment certifications from Changbai Mountain Development and 
Protection Zone Hongtu Wood Industrial Co., Ltd., Shenyang Senwang 
Wooden Industry Co., Ltd., and Jiangsu Yuhui International Trade Co., 
Ltd. The Department stated its intention to rescind the review with 
respect to these companies. The Department inquired with U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP) whether these companies had shipped 
merchandise to the United States during the POR, and CBP provided no 
evidence to contradict the claims of no shipments made by these 
companies. Accordingly, the Department is rescinding the administrative 
review of these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).
    As noted in the Preliminary Results, three additional companies 
also filed timely no-shipment certifications: Henan Xingwangjia, 
Technology Co., Ltd., Dalian Xinjinghua Wood Co., Ltd., and Xuzhou 
Antop International Trade Co., Ltd. However, we continue to determine 
that there is sufficient evidence on the record of this review to 
conclude that these companies had reviewable transactions during the 
POR. Therefore, we are continuing to include these companies in this 
administrative review for the final results.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    In this review, in addition to the two selected mandatory 
respondents, there are 104 companies for which a review was requested 
and not rescinded, but which were not selected for individual 
examination (non-selected respondents). To determine a rate for the 
non-selected respondents, we followed the Department's practice, which 
is to derive an average of the subsidy rates calculated for those 
companies selected for individual review, excluding de minimis rates or 
rates based entirely on adverse facts available. In this case, we 
assigned to the non-selected respondents the simple average of the 
rates calculated for Fine Furniture and Penghong. Instead of a weighted 
average, we are using a simple average as it provides a reasonable 
proxy for a weighted-average rate and protects business proprietary 
data otherwise necessary for deriving a weighted average.

Final Results of Administrative Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we determine the 
following net subsidy rates for the 2014 administrative review.
