Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 75 / Thursday, April 18, 2019 / Notices regulations (15 CFR 400.14(e)) require that merchandise subject to AD/CVD orders, or items which would be otherwise subject to suspension of liquidation under AD/CVD procedures if they entered U.S. customs territory, be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). The request also indicates that aluminum foil is subject to special duties under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 (Section 232) depending on the country of origin. The applicable Section 232 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is May 28, 2019. A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 21013, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s website, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.

(Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Coated Upholstery Fabric Cover Stock); New Braunfels, Texas CGT U.S., Ltd. (CGT) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in New Braunfels, Texas. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on April 10, 2019. CGT already has authority to produce PVC coated upholstery fabric cover stock within Subzone 80E. The current request would add foreign status materials/components to the scope of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Apr 17, 2019 Jkt 247001 authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials/components described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt CGT from customs duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials/components noted below, CGT would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to PVC coated upholstery fabric cover stock (duty free). CGT would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The materials/components sourced from abroad include polyester knit woven dyed fabric and PVC plasticizer (duty rates are 14.9% and 6.5%, respectively). The request indicates that the polyester knit woven dyed fabric will be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41), thereby precluding inverted tariff benefits on such items. The request also indicates that certain materials/components are subject to special duties under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of origin. The applicable Section 301 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is May 28, 2019.

Therefore, for the final results, we continue to find that Comfort Coil did not have any shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, and that Foshan Nanhai continues to be a part of the China-wide entity.

Analysis of Comments Received

    As noted above, we received no comments on the Preliminary Results.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    As no parties submitted comments on the Preliminary Results, 
Commerce has not modified its analysis from that presented in the 
Preliminary Results, and no decision memorandum accompanies this 
Federal Register notice.

Assessment Rates

    We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative 
review. Pursuant to Commerce's assessment practice, because we have 
determined that Comfort Coil had no shipments of the subject 
merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter's 
case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the 
China-wide entity rate.\5\ We will instruct CBP to liquidate entries 
from the PRC-wide entity (including Foshan Nanhai) at the current rate 
for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 234.51 percent). Commerce intends to 
issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
publication date of the final results of this administrative review.

publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn

this notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For

all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found 
to be entitled to a separate rate, i.e., Foshan Nanhai, the cash

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely
