AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Commerce published the notice of initiation of this administrative review on May 9, 2017.1 On November 6, 2017, Commerce postponed the preliminary results of this review until April 2, 2018.2 Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the closure of the Federal Government from January 20 through January 22, 2018.

In this case, suspension of liquidation began on June 29, 2015.5 Therefore, the period of review (POR) for which we are measuring countervailable subsidies is from June 29, 2015 through December 31, 2016. Because it is Commerce’s practice to calculate subsidy rates on an annual basis, we calculated a 2015 rate and a 2016 rate. The rate calculated for 2015 will be applicable only to entries, or withdrawals from warehouse, for consumption made on and after June 29, 2015 through the end of 2015. Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are certain uncoated paper from Indonesia. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice.6 Methodology Commerce is conducting this countervailing duty (CVD) 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, Commerce preliminarily determines 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.7 For a full description of the methodology underlying our preliminary conclusions, 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Deadlines Affected by the Shutdown of the Federal Government,’’ dated January 23, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Commerce published the notice of initiation of this administrative 
review on May 9, 2017.\1\ On November 6, 2017, Commerce postponed the 
preliminary results of this review until April 2, 2018.\2\ Commerce 
exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the closure 
of the Federal Government from January 20 through January 22, 2018. As 
a result, the revised deadline for the preliminary results of this 
review is now April 3, 2018.\3\ For a complete description of the 
events that followed the initiation of this review, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 21513 (May 9, 2017) (Initiation 
Notice).
    \2\ See Memorandum, ``Certain Uncoated Paper from Indonesia: 
Extension of Deadline for Preliminary Results of 2015-2016 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Review,'' dated November 6, 2017.
    \3\ See Memorandum, ``Deadlines Affected by the Shutdown of the 
Federal Government,'' dated January 23, 2018. All deadlines in this 
segment of the proceeding have been extended by three days.
    \4\ See Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary 
Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: Certain 
Uncoated Paper from Indonesia; 2015-2016,'' dated concurrently with, 
and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Period of Review

    According to section 351.213(e)(2)(ii) of Commerce's regulations, 
the first administrative review of a countervailing duty order should 
cover the period from the initial date of suspension of liquidation of 
the subject merchandise to the end of the most recently completed 
calendar or fiscal year. In this case, suspension of liquidation began 
on June 29, 2015.\5\ Therefore, the period of review (POR) for which we 
are measuring countervailable subsidies is from June 29, 2015 through 
December 31, 2016.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Certain Uncoated Paper from Indonesia: Preliminary 
Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Alignment of Final 
Determination With Final Antidumping Determination, 80 FR 36971 
(June 29, 2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because it is Commerce's practice to calculate subsidy rates on an 
annual basis, we calculated a 2015 rate and a 2016 rate. The rate 
calculated for 2015 will be applicable only to entries, or withdrawals 
from warehouse, for consumption made on and after June 29, 2015 through 
the end of 2015.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are certain uncoated paper from 
Indonesia. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this 
notice.\6\

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this countervailing duty (CVD) 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, Commerce preliminarily determines 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.\7\ For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
preliminary conclusions,

[[Page 15371]]

Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via

Memorandum can be found in Appendix I to this notice.
