For a discussion of these changes, see the ‘‘Margin Calculations’’ section of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will be terminated, and all cash deposits will be refunded.

Scope of the Investigation Period of Investigation For purposes of this final determination, we relied solely on facts available because neither the Government of China nor any of the selected mandatory respondents participated in this investigation. Further, because the mandatory respondents and the Government of China did not cooperate to the best of their abilities in responding to our requests for information in this investigation, we drew adverse inferences in selecting from among the facts otherwise available, in accordance with sections 776(a)–(b) of the Act. Therefore, consistent with the Preliminary Determination, we continue to apply adverse facts available to JC Chemicals Limited and Simagchem Corp. No interested party submitted comments on the Preliminary Determination. Thus we made no changes to the subsidy rates for the mandatory respondents for the final determination. A detailed discussion of our application of AFA was provided in the Preliminary Determination and the accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.8 The period of investigation is January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017. Scope Comments We invited parties to comment on Commerce’s Preliminary Scope Decision Memorandum.4 In October 2018, we received timely scope comments from Ajinomoto Health and Nutrition North America, and the petitioners, GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc., and Chattem Chemicals, Inc., filed rebuttal scope comments.5 We issued a final scope decision memorandum, concurrent with this final determination, in response to these comments.6 We made no changes to the scope of the investigation since the Preliminary Determination.

and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by parties and 
responded to by Commerce in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is 
attached at Appendix II. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public

Verifications

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), Commerce verified the sales and cost data reported by Kumar 
Industries, India (Kumar), and Paras Intermediates Private Limited 
(Paras) for use in our final determination. We used standard 
verification procedures, including an examination of relevant 
accounting and production records, and original source documents 
provided by the respondents.

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received and our findings at 
verification, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for 
Kumar and Paras since the Preliminary Determination. For a discussion 
of these changes, see the ``Margin Calculations'' section of the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum.

All-Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margin for all other producers and exporters 
not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
individually investigated

[[Page 18488]]

exporters and producers, excluding any margins that are zero or de 
minimis or any margins determined entirely under section 776 of the 
Act. In this investigation, Commerce calculated a company-specific rate 
for Kumar and Paras. Consequently, the weighted average of the rates 
calculated for the two companies will be assigned as the rate for all 
other producers and exporters.

Final Determination

    The weighted-average dumping margins are as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                 Cash

concurrently with this memorandum.
    \7\ See Analysis Memorandum for Paras, ``Analysis of Data 
Submitted by Paras Intermediates Private Limited in the Final 
Determination of the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Glycine from 
India,'' dated concurrently with this memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will disclose the calculations performed in this final 
determination within five days of any public announcement of this 
notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, for this final 
determination, we will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
to continue to suspend liquidation of all entries of glycine from 
India, as described in Appendix I of this notice, which are entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after October 31, 2018, 
the date of publication in the Federal Register of the affirmative 
Preliminary Determination.
    Further, Commerce will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal 
to the estimated amount by which the normal value exceeds the U.S. 
price as shown above, adjusted where appropriate, for export subsidies 
found in the final determination of the companion countervailing duty 
(CVD) investigation. Consistent with our longstanding practice, where 
the product under investigation is also subject to a concurrent CVD 
investigation, we instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the 
amount by which the normal value exceeds the U.S. price, less the 
amount of the CVD determined to constitute any export subsidies.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See, e.g., Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Turkey: 
Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 80 FR 61362 
(October 13, 2015), and Notice of Final Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value and Negative Critical Circumstances 
Determination: Bottom Mount Combination Refrigerator-Freezers from 
the Republic of Korea, 77 17413 (March 26, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in the event that a countervailing duty order is issued, 
and suspension of liquidation is resumed in the companion CVD 
investigation of glycine from India, Commerce will instruct CBP to 
require cash deposits adjusted by the amount of export subsidies, as 
appropriate. These adjustments are reflected in the final column of the 
rate chart, above. Until such suspension of liquidation is resumed in 
the companion CVD investigation, and so long as suspension of 
liquidation continues under this antidumping duty investigation, the 
cash deposit rates for this antidumping duty investigation will be the 
rates identified in the estimated weighted-average dumping margin 
column in the rate chart, above.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
International Trade Commission (ITC) of the final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this 
proceeding is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the 
Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the 
domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or 
threatened with material injury, by reason of imports, or sales (or the 
likelihood of sales) for importation of glycine from India no later 
than 45 days after our final determination. If the ITC determines that 
material injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the 
proceeding will be terminated, and all cash deposits will be refunded.
