On June 7, 2017, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department published in the Federal Register notice of initiation of an administrative review of the order on certain activated carbon from the PRC with respect to 209 companies.15 On September 5, 2017, the petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review for 185 companies.16 In the list of companies for which the petitioners withdrew their review request, Shanxi Dapu was the only company for which a party other than the petitioners had requested a review. Partial Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review.

See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 26444 (June 7, 2017) (Initiation Notice); see also Petitioners’ Request for Review and Shanxi Dapu’s submission, ‘‘Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated May 1, 2017.

Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the PRC for the period April 1, 2016, through March 31, 2017, with respect to the 184 companies for which all review requests were withdrawn, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The review will continue with respect to the remaining 24 companies for which reviews were requested.17 Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. We intend to issue and publish this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). 17 For a list of these companies, see Attachment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 8, 2011, the Department issued a countervailing duty (CVD) order on multilayered wood flooring from the PRC.1 Several interested parties requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of the countervailing duty order, and on February 13, 2017, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the Order for 113 producers/ exporters for the POR.2 Scope of the Order The product covered by the Order is wood flooring from the PRC. For a complete description of the scope of this administrative review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.3 Rescission of Administrative Review, in Part sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. This review was initiated on February 13, 2017. Both Dalian Penghong Floor Products Co., Ltd. (Dalian Penghong) and the petitioner withdrew their request for a review of Dalian Penghong on March 27, 2017, which was within the 90-day deadline.4 Therefore, because there are no remaining requests to review this company, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), and consistent with our 1 See Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 76 FR 76693 (December 8, 2011) (Order). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 10457 (February 13, 2017) (Initiation Notice). 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Determination in the Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: 2015’’ (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice. 4 See Dalian Penghong Floor Products Co., Ltd.’s Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China Withdrawal of Request for Review,’’ dated March 27, 2017; see also Coalition for American Hardwood Parity’s (Petitioner) Letter, ‘‘Partial Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review’’ dated March 27, 2017. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:50 Dec 06, 2017 Jkt 244001 practice, we are rescinding this review with respect to Dalian Penghong. Intent To Rescind Administrative Review, in Part We received timely filed no-shipment certifications from four companies.5 The Department issued no-shipment inquiries to Customs Border Protection (CBP) requesting any information that may contradict the no-shipment claims. We have not received information to date from CBP that contradicts Changbai Mountain’s, Jiangsu Yuhui’s, Jiaxing Hentong Wood’s, and Zhejiang Shuimojiangnan’s claims of no sales, shipments, or entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.6 Because these companies timely filed their no-shipment certifications and CBP has not provided information that contradicts the companies’ claims, we preliminarily intend to rescind the review of these companies. Absent any evidence of shipments being placed on the record, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we intend to rescind the administrative review of these companies in the final results of review. Jiangsu Keri Wood and Linyi Bonn also timely filed no-shipment certifications.7 However, both companies subsequently withdrew their no-shipment submissions.8 Therefore, 5 See Changbai Mountain Development and Protection Zone Hongtu Wood Industrial Co., Ltd.’s (Changbai Mountain) and Jiangsu Yuhui International Trade Co., Ltd.’s (Jiangsu Yuhui) Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: No Shipments Certification,’’ dated March 1, 2017; Jiaxing Hengtong Wood Co., Ltd.’s (Jiaxing Hengtong Wood) Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: No Sales Certification,’’ dated March 13, 2017; Zhejiang Shuimojiangnan New Material Technology Co., Ltd.’s (Zhejiang Shuimojiangnan) Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: No Sales Certification,’’ dated March 13, 2017. 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘Release of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Information Relating to No Shipment Claims Made in the 2015 Administrative Review of Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated September 25, 2017, (stating that the CBP no-shipment data query identified entries of subject merchandise by Jiangsu Keri Wood, but did not identify entries of subject merchandise by Changbai Mountain, Jiangsu Yuhui, Jiaxing Hentong Wood, and Zhejiang Shuimojiangnan). 7 See Jiangsu Keri Wood Co., Ltd.’s (Jiangsu Keri Wood) Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: No Shipments Certification,’’ dated March 2, 2017; Linyi Bonn Flooring Manufacturing Co., Ltd.’s (Linyi Bonn) Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: No Shipments Certification,’’ dated March 3, 2017. 8 See Jiangsu Keri Wood’s Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Comments on No Shipments Letter,’’ dated September 29, 2017; Linyi Bonn’s Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57723 we are continuing to include Linyi Bonn and Jiangsu Keri Wood in this administrative review for purposes of the preliminary results. Methodology The Department is conducting this countervailing duty (CVD) review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act). For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we preliminarily determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution by an ‘‘authority’’ that confers a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.9 For a full description of the methodology underlying our preliminary conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary 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 https://access.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/ index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included as an Appendix to this notice. In making these preliminary results, the Department relied, in part, on facts otherwise available.10 For further information, see ‘‘Provision of Electricity for Less Than Adequate Remuneration (LTAR)’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review There are 105 companies for which a review was requested and not rescinded, and which were not selected as mandatory respondents. For these companies, we are preliminarily applying the rate of mandatory respondent, Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited (Fine Furniture), which is above de minimis. For further information on the calculation of the non-selected rate, refer to the section in Republic of China: Withdrawal of No Shipments Certification,’’ dated June 12, 2017. 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. 10 See section 776(a) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On October 31, 2017, the Department published in the Federal Register the Preliminary Determination 1 of the lessthan-fair-value investigation of wire rod from Spain. On November 6, 2017, Global Steel Wire S.A., CELSA Atlantic ´ ˜ S.A., and Companıa Espanola de ´ Laminacion (collectively, CELSA) alleged that the Department made a significant ministerial error in the Preliminary Determination.2 Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is wire rod from Spain. For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigation,’’ in the Appendix to this notice. 1 See Carbon and Alloy Steel Wire Rod from the Republic of Spain: Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, and Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances, In Part, 82 FR 50390 (October 31, 2017) (Preliminary Determination). 2 See CELSA’s November 6, 2017 letter, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Investigation of Carbon and Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Spain: Significant Ministerial Errors Contained in the Preliminary Determination’’ (Ministerial Error Allegation). PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Significant Ministerial Error A ministerial error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ‘‘an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.’’ A significant ministerial error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(g) as a ministerial error, the correction of which, 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 weightedaverage 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. Further, 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.’’ Ministerial Error Allegation CELSA alleges that the Department double-counted the international freight expenses in the calculation of U.S. net prices, increasing the amount deducted for international movement costs, and increasing the dumping margin. CELSA maintains that correcting this error results in a decrease of more than five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the weightedaverage dumping margin, thereby meeting the definition of ‘‘significant’’ pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(g)(1).3 Additionally, CELSA alleges that the Department has misclassified direct selling expenses in the United States as indirect selling expenses incurred in Spain. We find that the Department unintentionally included international freight expenses twice when adjusting U.S. price for movement expense in the margin calculation program.4 The Department also unintentionally entered a variable used to capture indirect selling expenses in Spain in the program calculation for direct selling expenses in the United States.5 These errors constitute ministerial errors 3 See Ministerial Error Allegation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On December 8, 2011, the Department issued a countervailing duty 
(CVD) order on multilayered wood flooring from the PRC.\1\ Several 
interested parties requested that the Department conduct an 
administrative review of the countervailing duty order, and on February 
13, 2017, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of 
initiation of an administrative review of the Order for 113 producers/
exporters for the POR.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

China: Countervailing Duty Order, 76 FR 76693 (December 8, 2011) 
(Order).
    \2\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 10457 (February 13, 2017) (Initiation 
Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the Order is wood flooring from the PRC. For 
a complete description of the scope of this administrative review, see 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary 
Determination in the Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of 
Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People's Republic of China: 
2015'' (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with, 
and hereby adopted by, this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission of Administrative Review, in Part

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that 
requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. This 
review was initiated on February 13, 2017. Both Dalian Penghong Floor 
Products Co., Ltd. (Dalian Penghong) and the petitioner withdrew their 
request for a review of Dalian Penghong on March 27, 2017, which was 
within the 90-day deadline.\4\ Therefore, because there are no 
remaining requests to review this company, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1), and consistent with our practice, we are rescinding this 
review with respect to Dalian Penghong.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Dalian Penghong Floor Products Co., Ltd.'s Letter, 
``Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People's Republic of China 
Withdrawal of Request for Review,'' dated March 27, 2017; see also 
Coalition for American Hardwood Parity's (Petitioner) Letter, 
``Partial Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review'' dated 
March 27, 2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Intent To Rescind Administrative Review, in Part

    We received timely filed no-shipment certifications from four 
companies.\5\ The Department issued no-shipment inquiries to Customs 
Border Protection (CBP) requesting any information that may contradict 
the no-shipment claims. We have not received information to date from 
CBP that contradicts Changbai Mountain's, Jiangsu Yuhui's, Jiaxing 
Hentong Wood's, and Zhejiang Shuimojiangnan's claims of no sales, 
shipments, or entries of subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR.\6\ Because these companies timely filed their no-
shipment certifications and CBP has not provided information that 
contradicts the companies' claims, we preliminarily intend to rescind 
the review of these companies. Absent any evidence of shipments being 
placed on the record, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we intend to 
rescind the administrative review of these companies in the final 
results of review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Changbai Mountain Development and Protection Zone Hongtu 
Wood Industrial Co., Ltd.'s (Changbai Mountain) and Jiangsu Yuhui 
International Trade Co., Ltd.'s (Jiangsu Yuhui) Letter,

Shipments Certification,'' dated March 1, 2017; Jiaxing Hengtong 
Wood Co., Ltd.'s (Jiaxing Hengtong Wood) Letter, ``Multilayered Wood 
Flooring from the People's Republic of China: No Sales 
Certification,'' dated March 13, 2017; Zhejiang Shuimojiangnan New 
Material Technology Co., Ltd.'s (Zhejiang Shuimojiangnan) Letter, 
``Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People's Republic of China: No 
Sales Certification,'' dated March 13, 2017.
    \6\ See Memorandum, ``Release of U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection Information Relating to No Shipment Claims Made in the 
2015 Administrative Review of Multilayered Wood Flooring from the 
People's Republic of China,'' dated September 25, 2017, (stating 
that the CBP no-shipment data query identified entries of subject 
merchandise by Jiangsu Keri Wood, but did not identify entries of 
subject merchandise by Changbai Mountain, Jiangsu Yuhui, Jiaxing 
Hentong Wood, and Zhejiang Shuimojiangnan).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Jiangsu Keri Wood and Linyi Bonn also timely filed no-shipment 
certifications.\7\ However, both companies subsequently withdrew their 
no-shipment submissions.\8\ Therefore, we are continuing to include 
Linyi Bonn and Jiangsu Keri Wood in this administrative review for 
purposes of the preliminary results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this countervailing duty (CVD) review 
in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (Act). For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, 
we preliminarily determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial 
contribution by an ``authority'' that confers a benefit to the 
recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.\9\ For a full description 
of the methodology underlying our preliminary conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    The Preliminary 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 https://access.trade.gov and 
in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content. A list of topics discussed in the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included as an Appendix to this 
notice.
    In making these preliminary results, the Department relied, in 
part, on facts otherwise available.\10\ For further information, see 
``Provision of Electricity for Less Than Adequate Remuneration (LTAR)'' 
in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See section 776(a) of the Act.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    There are 105 companies for which a review was requested and not 
rescinded, and which were not selected as mandatory respondents. For 
these companies, we are preliminarily applying the rate of mandatory 
respondent, Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited (Fine Furniture), which 
is above de minimis. For further information on the calculation of the 
non-selected rate, refer to the section in

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review.''

Preliminary Results of the Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated a 
countervailable subsidy rate for each of the mandatory respondents,
