Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the parties’ briefs are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues addressed is attached to this notice.9 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). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes From the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, Commerce made certain revisions to the rates assigned to Jiangsu Senmao and Riverside Plywood. The Issues and Decision Memorandum contains descriptions of these revisions. Methodology Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.10 The Issues and Decision Memorandum contains a full description of the methodology underlying Commerce’s conclusions, including any determination that relied upon the use of adverse facts available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. Partial Rescission of Administrative Review As noted in the Preliminary Results, Commerce timely received no-shipment certifications from Anhui Boya Bamboo & Wood Products Co., Ltd., Chinafloors Timber (China) Co., Ltd., Hunchun Clarification of the Scope of the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 82 FR 27799 (June 19, 2017). 9 See Appendix I. 10 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. E:\FR\FM\06AUN1.SGM 06AUN1 38222 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 151 / Tuesday, August 6, 2019 / Notices Forest Wolf Wooden Industry Co., Ltd. (Hunchun Forest), Jiangsu Keri Wood Co., Ltd., Jiashan On-Line Lumber Co., Ltd., Kingman Floors Co., Ltd., Linyi Bonn Flooring Manufacturing Co., Ltd., and Zhejiang Shiyou Timber Co., Ltd. We inquired with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) whether these companies had shipped merchandise to the United States during the POR. CBP provided no evidence to contradict the claims of no shipments made by these companies, except for Hunchun Forest. Accordingly, we stated our intention to rescind the review with respect to these companies in the Preliminary Results. As the facts have remained the same since the Preliminary Results, we are rescinding the administrative review of these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). On October 29, 2018, Huzhou Muyun Wood Co., Ltd. (Muyun Wood) filed a no-shipment certification. On November 13, 2018, we rejected Muyun Wood’s request for no-shipment status because the request was untimely filed. Therefore, we are including Muyun Wood in this administrative review for purposes of the final results. Hunchun Forest also timely filed a no-shipment certification. However, Hunchun Forest subsequently withdrew its no-shipment submission. Therefore, we are including Hunchun Forest in this administrative review for purposes of the final results. Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review In this review, in addition to the two selected mandatory respondents, there are 132 companies for which a review was requested and not rescinded, but which were not selected for individual examination (non-selected companies). For these companies, we applied the average of the rates calculated for the mandatory respondents, Jiangsu Senmao and Riverside Plywood, which are above de minimis. For further information on the calculation of the non-selected rate, refer to the section in the Issues and Decision Memorandum entitled, ‘‘Ad Valorem Rate for NonSelected Companies Under Review.’’ Concerning Jiaxing Brilliant’s April 23, 2019, comments, we note that we inadvertently included the company in our review. Jiaxing Brilliant was excluded from the order as a result of the final determination in the investigation segment of this case.11 Therefore, Jiaxing Brilliant is not subject to this review and is excluded from the list of non-selected companies receiving a rate below.

ACTION: Notice; receipt of application for a Letter of Authorization; request for comments and information. Background NMFS has received a request from the U.S. Navy (Navy) for authorization to take marine mammals incidental to training and testing activities conducted in the Northwest Training and Testing (NWTT) Study Area for a period of seven years, from November, 2020 through November, 2027. Pursuant to regulations implementing the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), NMFS is announcing receipt of the Navy’s request for the development and implementation of regulations governing the incidental taking of marine mammals. NMFS invites the public to provide information, suggestions, and comments on the Navy’s application and request. DATES: Comments and information must be received no later than September 5, 2019. ADDRESSES: Comments on the application should be addressed to Jolie Harrison, Chief, Permits and Conservation Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service. Physical comments should be sent to 1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910 and electronic comments should be sent to ITP.Piniak@noaa.gov. Instructions: NMFS is not responsible for comments sent by any other method, to any other address or individual, or received after the end of the comment period. Comments received electronically, including all attachments, must not exceed a 25megabyte file size. Attachments to electronic comments will be accepted in Microsoft Word or Excel or Adobe PDF file formats only. All comments received are a part of the public record Sections 101(a)(5)(A) and (D) of the MMPA (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) direct the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) to allow, upon request, the incidental, but not intentional taking of marine mammals by U.S. citizens who engage in a specified activity (other than commercial fishing) within a specified geographic region if certain findings are made and either regulations are issued or, if the taking is limited to harassment, notice of a proposed authorization is provided to the public for review. An authorization for incidental takings shall be granted if NMFS finds that the taking will have a negligible impact on the species or stock(s), will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the species or stock(s) for subsistence uses (where relevant), and if the permissible methods of taking and requirements pertaining to the mitigation, monitoring and reporting of such takings are set forth.

The MMPA states that the term ‘‘take’’ means to harass, hunt, capture, kill or attempt to harass, hunt, capture, or kill any marine mammal.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2004 (Public Law (Pub. L.) 108–136) removed the ‘‘small numbers’’ and ‘‘specified geographical region’’ limitations indicated above and amended the definition of ‘‘harassment’’ as it applies to a ‘‘military readiness activity’’ to read as follows (Section 3(18)(B) of the MMPA): (i) Any act that injures or has the significant potential to injure a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in the wild (Level A harassment); or (ii) Any act that disturbs or is likely to disturb a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in the wild by causing disruption of natural behavioral patterns, including, but not limited to, migration, surfacing, nursing, breeding, feeding, or sheltering, to a point where such behavioral patterns are abandoned or significantly altered (Level B harassment). On August 13, 2018, the 2019 NDAA (Pub. L. 115–232) amended the MMPA to allow incidental take regulations for military readiness activities to be issued for up to seven years.

In addition, the Navy is requesting authorization of three takes of large whales by serious injury or mortality resulting from vessel strikes. NMFS received a revised application on June 24, 2019. The requested regulations would be valid for seven years, from 2020 through 2027. This will be the third time NMFS has promulgated incidental take regulations pursuant to the MMPA relating to similar military readiness activities in the NWTT Study Area, following those effective from November 9, 2010 through November 8, 2015 (75 FR 69275; November 10, 2010) and from November 9, 2015 through November 8, 2010 (80 FR 73555; November 24, 2015).

Background

    Commerce published the Preliminary Results of the administrative

attached to this notice.\9\ 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

    \9\ See Appendix I.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes From the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, Commerce made 
certain revisions to the rates assigned to Jiangsu Senmao and Riverside 
Plywood. The Issues and Decision Memorandum contains descriptions of 
these revisions.

Methodology

    Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found 
countervailable, we find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-
provided financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the 
recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.\10\ The Issues and 
Decision Memorandum contains a full description of the methodology 
underlying Commerce's conclusions, including any determination that 
relied upon the use of adverse facts available pursuant to sections 
776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, Commerce timely received no-
shipment certifications from Anhui Boya Bamboo & Wood Products Co., 
Ltd., Chinafloors Timber (China) Co., Ltd., Hunchun

[[Page 38222]]

Forest Wolf Wooden Industry Co., Ltd. (Hunchun Forest), Jiangsu Keri 
Wood Co., Ltd., Jiashan On-Line Lumber Co., Ltd., Kingman Floors Co., 
Ltd., Linyi Bonn Flooring Manufacturing Co., Ltd., and Zhejiang Shiyou 
Timber Co., Ltd. We inquired with U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) whether these companies had shipped merchandise to the United 
States during the POR. CBP provided no evidence to contradict the 
claims of no shipments made by these companies, except for Hunchun 
Forest. Accordingly, we stated our intention to rescind the review with 
respect to these companies in the Preliminary Results. As the facts 
have remained the same since the Preliminary Results, we are rescinding 
the administrative review of these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(3).
    On October 29, 2018, Huzhou Muyun Wood Co., Ltd. (Muyun Wood) filed 
a no-shipment certification. On November 13, 2018, we rejected Muyun 
Wood's request for no-shipment status because the request was untimely 
filed. Therefore, we are including Muyun Wood in this administrative 
review for purposes of the final results.
    Hunchun Forest also timely filed a no-shipment certification. 
However, Hunchun Forest subsequently withdrew its no-shipment 
submission. Therefore, we are including Hunchun Forest in this 
administrative review for purposes of the final results.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    In this review, in addition to the two selected mandatory 
respondents, there are 132 companies for which a review was requested 
and not rescinded, but which were not selected for individual 
examination (non-selected companies). For these companies, we applied 
the average of the rates calculated for the mandatory respondents, 
Jiangsu Senmao and Riverside Plywood, which are above de minimis. For 
further information on the calculation of the non-selected rate, refer 
to the section in the Issues and Decision Memorandum entitled, ``Ad 
Valorem Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review.'' Concerning 
Jiaxing Brilliant's April 23, 2019, comments, we note that we 
inadvertently included the company in our review. Jiaxing Brilliant was 
excluded from the order as a result of the final determination in the 
investigation segment of this case.\11\ Therefore, Jiaxing Brilliant is 
not subject to this review and is excluded from the list of non-
selected companies receiving a rate below.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), Commerce will determine, and CBP 
shall assess, countervailing duties on all appropriate entries of 
subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this 
review, for the above-listed companies at the applicable ad valorem 
assessment rates listed. We intend to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of 
review.
    For the companies for which this review is rescinded, Commerce will 
instruct CBP to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries 
at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties 
required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for 
consumption, during the POR in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(l)(i).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Commerce also intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of 
estimated countervailing duties in the amounts shown for each of the 
respective companies listed above on shipments of subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
date of publication of the final results of this administrative review. 
For all non-reviewed firms, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect 
cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at the most recent 
company-specific or all others rate applicable to the company, as 
appropriate. These cash deposit requirements, effective upon 
publication of these final results, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

    This notice also serves as a 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 
written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or 
conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure
