SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) seeks public comment on any subsidies, including stumpage subsidies, provided by certain countries exporting softwood lumber or softwood lumber products to the United States during the period July 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018. DATES: Comments must be submitted by June 10, 2019. ADDRESSES: See the Submission of Comments section below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kristen Johnson, AD/CVD Operations, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4793. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background Pursuant to section 805 of Title VIII of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Softwood Lumber Act of 2008), the Secretary of Commerce is mandated to submit to the appropriate Congressional committees a report every 180 days on any subsidy provided by countries exporting softwood lumber or softwood lumber products to the United States, including stumpage subsidies. Commerce submitted its last subsidy report on December 20, 2018. As part of its newest report, Commerce intends to include a list of subsidy programs identified with sufficient clarity by the public in response to this notice. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Request for Comments Given the large number of countries that export softwood lumber and softwood lumber products to the United States, we are soliciting public comment only on subsidies provided by countries which had exports accounting for at least one percent of total U.S. imports of softwood lumber by quantity, as classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) codes 4407.1001, 4407.1100, 4407.1200, 4407.1905, 4407.1906, 4407.1910,1 1 For previous lumber subsidies reports, Commerce relied solely on HTSUS code 4407.1001 (coniferous wood sawn or chipped lengthwise, sliced or peeled, of a thickness exceeding 6 mm), VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:40 May 22, 2019 Jkt 247001 during the period July 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018. Official U.S. import data published by the United States International Trade Commission’s DataWeb indicate that four countries (Brazil, Canada, Germany, and Sweden) exported softwood lumber to the United States during that time period in amounts sufficient to account for at least one percent of U.S. imports of softwood lumber products. We intend to rely on similar previous six-month periods to identify the countries subject to future reports on softwood lumber subsidies. For example, we will rely on U.S. imports of softwood lumber and softwood lumber products during the period January 1, 2019, through June 30, 2019, to select the countries subject to the next report. Under U.S. trade law, a subsidy exists where an authority: (i) Provides a financial contribution; (ii) provides any form of income or price support within the meaning of Article XVI of the GATT 1994; or (iii) makes a payment to a funding mechanism to provide a financial contribution to a person, or entrusts or directs a private entity to make a financial contribution, if providing the contribution would normally be vested in the government and the practice does not differ in substance from practices normally followed by governments, and a benefit is thereby conferred.2 Parties should include in their comments: (1) The country which provided the subsidy; (2) the name of the subsidy program; (3) a brief description (no more than 3–4 sentences) of the subsidy program; and (4) the government body or authority that provided the subsidy. Submission of Comments As specified above, to be assured of consideration, comments must be received no later than 5:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, on Monday, June 10, 2019. All comments must be submitted through the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov, Docket which accounted for the vast majority of subject imports. In October 2018, HTSUS code 4407.1001 became obsolete and was replaced by HTSUS codes 4407.1100 (pine wood sawn or chipped lengthwise, sliced or peeled, over 6 mm thick), 4407.1200 (fir and spruce wood sawn or chipped lengthwise, sliced or peeled, over 6 mm thick), 4407.1905 (mixtures of spruce, pine and fir (SPF) wood sawn or chipped lengthwise, sliced or peeled, over 6 mm thick, not treated with preservatives), 4407.1906 (mixtures of hemlock and fir (hem-fir) wood sawn or chipped lengthwise, sliced or peeled, over 6 mm thick, not treated with preservatives), and 4407.1910 (other coniferous wood, nesoi, sawn or chipped lengthwise, sliced or peeled, over 6 mm thick, whether or not treated with preservatives). 2 See section 771(5)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended.

The mandatory respondents in this investigation are CQ International,1 Guangzhou Hercules Quartz Stone Co., Ltd. (Hercules Quartz), Foshan Hero Stone Co., Ltd. (Hero Stone), and Foshan Yixin Stone Co., Ltd. (Yixin Stone). On November 20, 2018, Commerce published the Preliminary Determination of sales at LTFV of quartz surface products from China.2 A summary of the events that occurred since Commerce published the Preliminary Determination, as well as a full discussion of the issues raised by the parties for this final determination, may be found in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice.3 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).

Period of Investigation The period of investigation is October 1, 2017, through March 31, 2018. Scope of the Investigation The products covered by this investigation are quartz surface products from China. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see Appendix I. Scope Comments During the course of this investigation, and the concurrent countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of quartz surface products from China, Commerce received scope comments from interested parties. Commerce issued a Preliminary Scope Decision Memorandum to address these comments and set aside a period of time for parties to address scope issues in scope case and rebuttal briefs.5 We received comments from interested parties on the Preliminary Scope Decision Memorandum, which we addressed in the Final Scope Decision Memorandum.6 In addition, on February 14, 2019, the petitioner submitted a proposed clarification to the scope of this and the concurrent CVD investigation.7 In response to the petitioner’s proposed scope clarification, Commerce established a separate scope briefing schedule and received case and rebuttal briefs regarding the proposed clarification, which we addressed in the Proposed Scope Clarification Decision Memorandum.8 As a result, for this final determination, we made certain changes to the scope of these investigations from that published in the Preliminary Determination.9 See Appendix I. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Certain Quartz Surface Products from the People’s Republic of China: Scope Comments Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Determination,’’ dated September 14, 2018 (Preliminary Scope Decision Memorandum). 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘Certain Quartz Surface Products from the People’s Republic of China: Final Scope Comments Decision Memorandum,’’ dated May 10, 2019 (Final Scope Decision Memorandum). 7 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Certain Quartz Surface Products from the People’s Republic of China: Request to Extend Deadline to Submit Factual Information,’’ dated February 14, 2019. 8 See Memorandum, Certain Quartz Surface Products from the People’s Republic of China: Proposed Scope Clarification Decision Memorandum,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (Proposed Scope Clarification Memorandum). 9 This scope modification will not apply to merchandise entered prior to the publication of this notice in the Federal Register. PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances In accordance with 735(a)(3) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.206, Commerce determines that critical circumstances exist with respect to imports of quartz surface products from CQ International,10 Foshan Yixin Stone Co., Ltd. (Yixin Stone), all non-individually examined companies receiving a separate rate, and the China-wide entity. For a full description of the methodology and results of Commerce’s final affirmative critical circumstances analysis, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 2. Analysis of Comments Received In the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we address all issues raised in parties’ case and rebuttal briefs, other than those issues related to scope. A list of the issues that parties raised, and to which we responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, is attached to this notice as Appendix II. Methodology Commerce conducted this investigation in accordance with section 731 of the Act. Export price was calculated in accordance with section 772(a) of the Act. Constructed export price was calculated in accordance with section 772(b) of the Act. Because China is a non-market economy within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value (NV) was calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying Commerce’s determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum; see also the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Verification As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, Commerce verified the sales and factors of production data reported by CQ International and Yixin Stone. 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 review and analysis of the comments received from interested parties, and our findings at verification, we made certain changes to the 10 We have ‘‘collapsed’’ CQ International Limited with two affiliated companies, Suzhou Colorquartzstone New Material Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Meiyang Stone Co., Ltd., and, as a result, we are treating them as a single-entity (collectively, CQ International). E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1 23769 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 100 / Thursday, May 23, 2019 / Notices calculation of the antidumping duty margins applicable to CQ International, Yixin Stone, those companies entitled to a separate rate, and the China-wide entity. Further, we now find Hercules Quartz to be part of the China-wide entity. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. China-Wide Entity and Use of Adverse Facts Available For the reasons explained in the Preliminary Determination, we continue to find that the use of adverse facts available (AFA), pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, is warranted in determining the rate for the Chinawide entity.11 In selecting the AFA rate for the China-wide entity, Commerce’s practice is to select a rate that is sufficiently adverse to ensure that the uncooperative party does not obtain a more favorable result by failing to cooperate than if it had fully cooperated.12 Specifically, it is Commerce’s practice to select, as an AFA rate, the higher of: (a) The highest dumping margin alleged in the petition; or, (b) the highest calculated dumping margin of any respondent in the investigation.13 For the final determination, we are assigning the China-wide entity, as AFA, the highest petition margin of 336.69 percent. We are able to corroborate the highest petition dumping margin, to the extent practicable within the meaning of section 776(c) of the Act, using transaction-specific dumping margins calculated for CQ International and Yixin Stone and, thus, we assigned this dumping margin to the China-wide entity as AFA. For further discussion, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum at ‘‘Use of Adverse Facts Available.’’ Separate Rates For the final determination, we continue to find that CQ International and Yixin Stone are eligible for separate rates. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated ‘‘all others’’ rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely under section 776 of Act.14 In this proceeding, Commerce calculated an above de minimis rate that is not based entirely Combination Rates In the Initiation Notice,16 Commerce stated that it would calculate producer/ exporter combination rates for the respondents that are eligible for a separate rate in this investigation. For a list of the respondents that established eligibility for their own separate rates and the exporter/producer combination rates applicable to these respondents, see Appendix III. Final Determination Commerce determines that quartz surface products from China are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at LTFV, and that the following dumping margins exist: Estimated weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Cash deposit rate (adjusted for subsidy offset) (percent) Exporter Producer Foshan Yixin Stone Co., Ltd .........................................

Disclosure We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this proceeding within five days of the date of khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES on facts available for two mandatory respondents under individual examination, i.e., CQ International and Yixin Stone. Thus, looking to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act for guidance, and consistent with our practice, we are assigning the weighted-average, based on publicly ranged sales data, of these mandatory respondents’ rates as the rate for non-individually examined companies that have qualified for a separate rate.15 11 The China-wide entity includes Foshan Hero Stone Co., Ltd.; Foshan Quartz Stone Imp & Exp Co., Ltd.; Guangzhou Hercules Quartz Stone Co., Ltd.; Hero Stone Co., Ltd.; and Vemy Quartz Surface Co., Ltd. 12 See, e.g., Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination: Purified Carboxymethyl Cellulose from Finland, 69 FR 77216 (December 27, 2004), unchanged in Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Purified Carboxymethyl Cellulose from Finland, 70 FR 28279 (May 17, 2005). 13 See, e.g., Certain Stilbenic Optical Brightening Agents from the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 77 FR 17436, 17438 (March 26, 2012); Final VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:40 May 22, 2019 Jkt 247001 publication of this notice, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 23770 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 100 / Thursday, May 23, 2019 / Notices instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of quartz surface products from CQ International, Yixin Stone, the separate rates companies, and the China-wide entity, and, in accordance with section 735(c)(4)(B) of the Act, because we continue to find that critical circumstances exist, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of quartz surface products which were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 22, 2018, which is 90 days prior to the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination of this investigation in the Federal Register. To determine the cash deposit rate, Commerce normally adjusts the estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the amount of domestic subsidy pass-through and export subsidies determined in a companion CVD proceeding when CVD provisional measures are in effect. Accordingly, where Commerce makes an affirmative determination for domestic subsidy pass-through or export subsidies, Commerce offsets the calculated estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the appropriate rate(s). In this case, we have made an affirmative determination for domestic subsidy pass-through and export subsidies for certain respondents. However, suspension of liquidation for provisional measures in the companion CVD case has been discontinued; therefore, we are not instructing CBP to collect cash deposits based upon the adjusted estimated weighted-average dumping margin for those subsidies at this time. In addition, pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the weighted-average amount by which NV exceeds U.S. price as follows: (1) The cash deposit rate for the exporter/producer combination listed in the table above or in Appendix III will be the rate identified for that combination in that table or Appendix III; (2) for all combinations of exporters/ producers of merchandise under consideration that have not received their own separate rate above or in Appendix III, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the China-wide entity; and (3) for all non-Chinese exporters of the merchandise under consideration which have not received their own separate rate above, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate applicable to the Chinese exporter/producer combination that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:40 May 22, 2019 Jkt 247001 These suspension of liquidation instructions will remain in effect until further notice. 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 Commerce’s final determination is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will determine, within 45 days, whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of quartz surface products from China, or sales (or the likelihood of sales) for importation, of quartz surface products from China. 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. If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of liquidation. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders In the event that the ITC issues a final negative injury determination, this notice will serve as the only reminder to parties subject to an 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 sanctionable violation. Notification to Interested Parties This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.210(c). Dated: May 14, 2019. Jeffrey I. Kessler, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Appendix I Scope of the Investigation The merchandise covered by the investigation is certain quartz surface PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 products.18 Quartz surface products consist of slabs and other surfaces created from a mixture of materials that includes predominately silica (e.g., quartz, quartz powder, cristobalite) as well as a resin binder (e.g., an unsaturated polyester). The incorporation of other materials, including, but not limited to, pigments, cement, or other additives does not remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigation. However, the scope of the investigation only includes products where the silica content is greater than any other single material, by actual weight. Quartz surface products are typically sold as rectangular slabs with a total surface area of approximately 45 to 60 square feet and a nominal thickness of one, two, or three centimeters. However, the scope of this investigation includes surface products of all other sizes, thicknesses, and shapes. In addition to slabs, the scope of this investigation includes, but is not limited to, other surfaces such as countertops, backsplashes, vanity tops, bar tops, work tops, tabletops, flooring, wall facing, shower surrounds, fire place surrounds, mantels, and tiles. Certain quartz surface products are covered by the investigation whether polished or unpolished, cut or uncut, fabricated or not fabricated, cured or uncured, edged or not edged, finished or unfinished, thermoformed or not thermoformed, packaged or unpackaged, and regardless of the type of surface finish. In addition, quartz surface products are covered by the investigation whether or not they are imported attached to, or in conjunction with, non-subject merchandise such as sinks, sink bowls, vanities, cabinets, and furniture. If quartz surface products are imported attached to, or in conjunction with, such non-subject merchandise, only the quartz surface product is covered by the scope. Subject merchandise includes material matching the above description that has been finished, packaged, or otherwise fabricated in a third country, including by cutting, polishing, curing, edging, thermoforming, attaching to, or packaging with another product, or any other finishing, packaging, or fabrication that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigation if performed in the country of manufacture of the quartz surface products. The scope of the investigation does not cover quarried stone surface products, such as granite, marble, soapstone, or quartzite. Specifically excluded from the scope of the investigation are crushed glass surface products. Crushed glass surface products must meet each of the following criteria to qualify for this exclusion: (1) The crushed glass content is greater than any other single material, by actual weight; (2) there are pieces of crushed glass visible across the surface of the product; (3) at least some of the individual pieces of crushed glass that are visible across the surface are larger than one centimeter wide as measured at their widest cross-section (glass pieces); and (4) the 18 Quartz surface products may also generally be referred to as engineered stone or quartz, artificial stone or quartz, agglomerated stone or quartz, synthetic stone or quartz, processed stone or quartz, manufactured stone or quartz, and Bretonstone®.

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation is October 1, 2017, through March 31, 
2018.

Scope of the Investigation

    The products covered by this investigation are quartz surface 
products from China. For a complete description of the scope of this 
investigation, see Appendix I.

Scope Comments

    During the course of this investigation, and the concurrent 
countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of quartz surface products from 
China, Commerce received scope comments from interested parties. 
Commerce issued a Preliminary Scope Decision Memorandum to address 
these comments and set aside a period of time for parties to address 
scope issues in scope case and rebuttal briefs.\5\ We received comments 
from interested parties on the Preliminary Scope Decision Memorandum, 
which we addressed in the Final Scope Decision Memorandum.\6\ In 
addition, on February 14, 2019, the petitioner submitted a proposed 
clarification to the scope of this and the concurrent CVD 
investigation.\7\ In response to the petitioner's proposed scope 
clarification, Commerce established a separate scope briefing schedule 
and received case and rebuttal briefs regarding the proposed 
clarification, which we addressed in the Proposed Scope Clarification 
Decision Memorandum.\8\ As a result, for this final determination, we 
made certain changes to the scope of these investigations from that 
published in the Preliminary Determination.\9\ See Appendix I.

Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances

    In accordance with 735(a)(3) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act) and 19 CFR 351.206, Commerce determines that critical 
circumstances exist with respect to imports of quartz surface products 
from CQ International,\10\ Foshan Yixin Stone Co., Ltd. (Yixin Stone), 
all non-individually examined companies receiving a separate rate, and 
the China-wide entity. For a full description of the methodology and 
results of Commerce's final affirmative critical circumstances 
analysis, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ We have ``collapsed'' CQ International Limited with two 
affiliated companies, Suzhou Colorquartzstone New Material Co., Ltd. 
and Shanghai Meiyang Stone Co., Ltd., and, as a result, we are 
treating them as a single-entity (collectively, CQ International).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Analysis of Comments Received

    In the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we address all issues raised 
in parties' case and rebuttal briefs, other than those issues related 
to scope. A list of the issues that parties raised, and to which we 
responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, is attached to this 
notice as Appendix II.

Methodology

    Commerce conducted this investigation in accordance with section 
731 of the Act. Export price was calculated in accordance with section 
772(a) of the Act. Constructed export price was calculated in 
accordance with section 772(b) of the Act. Because China is a non-
market economy within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal 
value (NV) was calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. 
For a full description of the methodology underlying Commerce's 
determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum; see also the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, Commerce verified the 
sales and factors of production data reported by CQ International and 
Yixin Stone. 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 review and analysis of the comments received from 
interested parties, and our findings at verification, we made certain 
changes to the

[[Page 23769]]

calculation of the antidumping duty margins applicable to CQ 
International, Yixin Stone, those companies entitled to a separate 
rate, and the China-wide entity. Further, we now find Hercules Quartz 
to be part of the China-wide entity. For a discussion of these changes, 
see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

China-Wide Entity and Use of Adverse Facts Available

    For the reasons explained in the Preliminary Determination, we 
continue to find that the use of adverse facts available (AFA), 
pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, is warranted in 
determining the rate for the China-wide entity.\11\ In selecting the 
AFA rate for the China-wide entity, Commerce's practice is to select a 
rate that is sufficiently adverse to ensure that the uncooperative 
party does not obtain a more favorable result by failing to cooperate 
than if it had fully cooperated.\12\ Specifically, it is Commerce's 
practice to select, as an AFA rate, the higher of: (a) The highest 
dumping margin alleged in the petition; or, (b) the highest calculated 
dumping margin of any respondent in the investigation.\13\ For the 
final determination, we are assigning the China-wide entity, as AFA, 
the highest petition margin of 336.69 percent. We are able to 
corroborate the highest petition dumping margin, to the extent 
practicable within the meaning of section 776(c) of the Act, using 
transaction-specific dumping margins calculated for CQ International 
and Yixin Stone and, thus, we assigned this dumping margin to the 
China-wide entity as AFA. For further discussion, see the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at ``Use of Adverse Facts Available.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ The China-wide entity includes Foshan Hero Stone Co., Ltd.; 
Foshan Quartz Stone Imp & Exp Co., Ltd.; Guangzhou Hercules Quartz 
Stone Co., Ltd.; Hero Stone Co., Ltd.; and Vemy Quartz Surface Co., 
Ltd.
    \12\ See, e.g., Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination: 
Purified Carboxymethyl Cellulose from Finland, 69 FR 77216 (December 
27, 2004), unchanged in Notice of Final Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value: Purified Carboxymethyl Cellulose from Finland,

Less Than Fair Value, 77 FR 17436, 17438 (March 26, 2012); Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Cold-Rolled 
Flat-Rolled Carbon Quality Steel Products from the People's Republic 
of China, 65 FR 34660 (May 31, 2000), and accompanying Issues and 
Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    For the final determination, we continue to find that CQ 
International and Yixin Stone are eligible for separate rates. Section 
735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated ``all others'' rate 
shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters and 
producers individually investigated, excluding zero or de minimis 
margins, and any margins determined entirely under section 776 of 
Act.\14\ In this proceeding, Commerce calculated an above de minimis 
rate that is not based entirely on facts available for two mandatory 
respondents under individual examination, i.e., CQ International and 
Yixin Stone. Thus, looking to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act for 
guidance, and consistent with our practice, we are assigning the 
weighted-average, based on publicly ranged sales data, of these 
mandatory respondents' rates as the rate for non-individually examined 
companies that have qualified for a separate rate.\15\

rates and the exporter/producer combination rates applicable to these 
respondents, see Appendix III.

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

Final Determination

    Commerce determines that quartz surface products from China are 
being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at LTFV, and that 
the following dumping margins exist:

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

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

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, Commerce will

[[Page 23770]]

instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of quartz surface 
products from CQ International, Yixin Stone, the separate rates 
companies, and the China-wide entity, and, in accordance with section 
735(c)(4)(B) of the Act, because we continue to find that critical 
circumstances exist, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend 
liquidation of all appropriate entries of quartz surface products which 
were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
August 22, 2018, which is 90 days prior to the date of publication of 
the Preliminary Determination of this investigation in the Federal 
Register.
    To determine the cash deposit rate, Commerce normally adjusts the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the amount of domestic 
subsidy pass-through and export subsidies determined in a companion CVD 
proceeding when CVD provisional measures are in effect. Accordingly, 
where Commerce makes an affirmative determination for domestic subsidy 
pass-through or export subsidies, Commerce offsets the calculated 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the appropriate rate(s). 
In this case, we have made an affirmative determination for domestic 
subsidy pass-through and export subsidies for certain respondents. 
However, suspension of liquidation for provisional measures in the 
companion CVD case has been discontinued; therefore, we are not 
instructing CBP to collect cash deposits based upon the adjusted 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin for those subsidies at this 
time.
    In addition, pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act, 
Commerce will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the 
weighted-average amount by which NV exceeds U.S. price as follows: (1) 
The cash deposit rate for the exporter/producer combination listed in 
the table above or in Appendix III will be the rate identified for that 
combination in that table or Appendix III; (2) for all combinations of 
exporters/producers of merchandise under consideration that have not 
received their own separate rate above or in Appendix III, the cash 
deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the China-
wide entity; and (3) for all non-Chinese exporters of the merchandise 
under consideration which have not received their own separate rate 
above, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate applicable 
to the Chinese exporter/producer combination that supplied that non-
Chinese exporter. These suspension of liquidation instructions will 
remain in effect until further notice.

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 Commerce's final determination 
is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the 
ITC will determine, within 45 days, whether the domestic industry in 
the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material 
injury, by reason of imports of quartz surface products from China, or 
sales (or the likelihood of sales) for importation, of quartz surface 
products from China. 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. If the ITC 
determines that such injury does exist, Commerce will issue an 
antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further 
instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on all imports of the 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of 
liquidation.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    In the event that the ITC issues a final negative injury 
determination, this notice will serve as the only reminder to parties 
subject to an 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 sanctionable 
violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.210(c).

    Dated: May 14, 2019.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

Appendix I

Scope of the Investigation

    The merchandise covered by the investigation is certain quartz 
surface products.\18\ Quartz surface products consist of slabs and 
other surfaces created from a mixture of materials that includes 
predominately silica (e.g., quartz, quartz powder, cristobalite) as 
well as a resin binder (e.g., an unsaturated polyester). The 
incorporation of other materials, including, but not limited to, 
pigments, cement, or other additives does not remove the merchandise 
from the scope of the investigation. However, the scope of the 
investigation only includes products where the silica content is 
greater than any other single material, by actual weight. Quartz 
surface products are typically sold as rectangular slabs with a 
total surface area of approximately 45 to 60 square feet and a 
nominal thickness of one, two, or three centimeters. However, the 
scope of this investigation includes surface products of all other 
sizes, thicknesses, and shapes. In addition to slabs, the scope of 
this investigation includes, but is not limited to, other surfaces 
such as countertops, backsplashes, vanity tops, bar tops, work tops, 
tabletops, flooring, wall facing, shower surrounds, fire place 
surrounds, mantels, and tiles. Certain quartz surface products are 
covered by the investigation whether polished or unpolished, cut or 
uncut, fabricated or not fabricated, cured or uncured, edged or not 
edged, finished or unfinished, thermoformed or not thermoformed, 
packaged or unpackaged, and regardless of the type of surface 
finish.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ Quartz surface products may also generally be referred to 
as engineered stone or quartz, artificial stone or quartz, 
agglomerated stone or quartz, synthetic stone or quartz, processed 
stone or quartz, manufactured stone or quartz, and 
Bretonstone[supreg].
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition, quartz surface products are covered by the 
investigation whether or not they are imported attached to, or in 
conjunction with, non-subject merchandise such as sinks, sink bowls, 
vanities, cabinets, and furniture. If quartz surface products are 
imported attached to, or in conjunction with, such non-subject 
merchandise, only the quartz surface product is covered by the 
scope.
    Subject merchandise includes material matching the above 
description that has been finished, packaged, or otherwise 
fabricated in a third country, including by cutting, polishing, 
curing, edging, thermoforming, attaching to, or packaging with 
another product, or any other finishing, packaging, or fabrication 
that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of 
the investigation if performed in the country of manufacture of the 
quartz surface products.
    The scope of the investigation does not cover quarried stone 
surface products, such as granite, marble, soapstone, or quartzite. 
Specifically excluded from the scope of the investigation are 
crushed glass surface products. Crushed glass surface products must 
meet each of the following criteria to qualify for this exclusion: 
(1) The crushed glass content is greater than any other single 
material, by actual weight; (2) there are pieces of crushed glass 
visible across the surface of the product; (3) at least some of the 
individual pieces of crushed glass that are visible across the 
surface are larger than one centimeter wide as measured at their 
widest cross-section (glass pieces); and (4) the

[[Page 23771]]

distance between any single glass piece and the closest separate 
glass piece does not exceed three inches.
    The products subject to the scope are currently classified in 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under 
the following subheading: 6810.99.0010. Subject merchandise may also 
enter under subheadings 6810.11.0010, 6810.11.0070, 6810.19.1200, 
6810.19.1400, 6810.19.5000, 6810.91.0000, 6810.99.0080, 
6815.99.4070, 2506.10.0010, 2506.10.0050, 2506.20.0010, 
2506.20.0080, and 7016.90.10. The HTSUS subheadings set forth above 
are provided for convenience and U.S. Customs purposes only. The 
written description of the scope is dispositive.
