Download as PDF 55912 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 202 / Friday, October 18, 2019 / Notices dividing the amount of dumping for reviewed sales to the importer by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. Where an importerspecific ad valorem assessment rate is not zero or de minimis, Commerce will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation. Where either the respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.19 Pursuant to Commerce practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the rate for the China-wide entity.20 Additionally, if Commerce determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s CBP case number will be liquidated at the rate for the China-wide entity. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties will be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(l)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions with respect to the companies for which this review is rescinded to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice. In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, the final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on POR entries, and for future deposits of estimated antidumping duties, where applicable. Cash Deposit Requirements Commerce will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit for antidumping duties equal to the weighted-average amount by which NV exceeds U.S. price. The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 19 See Final Modification, 77 FR at 8103. Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), for a full discussion of this practice. 20 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:37 Oct 17, 2019 Jkt 250001 Act: (1) For the exporters listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this review (except that, if the rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then the cash deposit rate will be zero for that exporter); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed China and nonChina exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (3) for all China exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the China-wide entity (i.e., 76.46 percent); 21 and (4) for all non-China exporters of subject merchandise that have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the China exporter that supplied that non-China exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or countervailing duties has occurred, and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties and/or an increase in the amount of antidumping duties by the amount of the countervailing duties. These preliminary results are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and 351.221(b)(4). Dated: October 10, 2019. Jeffrey I.

glycine from Thailand.\1\ On October 8, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce 
of its final affirmative determination, pursuant to section 735(d) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), that an industry in the 
United States is materially injured within the meaning of section

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by this order is glycine from Thailand. For a 
complete description of the scope of this order, see the Appendix to 
this notice.

Antidumping Duty Order

    On October 8, 2019, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination 
in this investigation, in which it found that an industry in the United 
States is materially injured by reason of imports of glycine from 
Thailand.\3\ As a result, and in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 
736 of the Act, Commerce is issuing and publishing this antidumping 
duty order. Because the ITC determined that imports of glycine from 
Thailand are materially injuring a U.S. industry, Commerce will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping 
duties on the subject merchandise from Thailand.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of the ITC Notification, in accordance with section 
736(a) of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP to assess, upon further 
instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties equal to the amount by 
which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or 
constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries 
of glycine from Thailand. Antidumping duties will be assessed on 
unliquidated entries of glycine from Thailand entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 5, 2019, the date of 
publication of the Final Determination.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Final Determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) and (C) and section 736 of 
the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation 
on all relevant entries of glycine from Thailand. We intend to instruct 
CBP to require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit 
estimated import duties on this merchandise, cash deposits of estimated 
antidumping duties for each entry of subject merchandise equal to the 
rates noted below. The all-others rate applies to all other producers 
or exporters not specifically listed. These instructions suspending 
liquidation will remain in effect until further notice.

Critical Circumstances

    The ITC found no critical circumstances on LTFV imports of glycine 
from Thailand. Accordingly, we will instruct CBP to lift suspension and 
to refund all cash deposits made to secure the payment of estimated 
antidumping duties with respect to entries of glycine from Thailand 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after May 
7, 2019 (i.e., 90 days prior to the date of publication of the Final 
Determination), but before August 5, 2019 (i.e., the date of 
publication of the Final Determination).
