High Pressure Steel Cylinders From the People's Republic of China: Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: 2018, 57397-57398 [2019-23336]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 207 / Friday, October 25, 2019 / Notices to or hung from a desktop or other work surface such as holes punched in the top (i.e., not freestanding); or (2) freestanding file cabinets that have all of the following: (a) At least a 90 percent drawer extension for all extendable file storage elements; (b) a central locking system; (c) a minimum weight density of 9.5 lbs./cubic foot; and (d) casters or leveling glides. ‘‘Percentage drawer extension’’ is defined as the drawer travel distance divided by the inside depth dimension of the drawer. Inside depth of drawer is measured from the inside of the drawer face to the inside face of the drawer back. Drawer extension is the distance the drawer travels from the closed position to the maximum travel position which is limited by the out stops. In situations where drawers do not include an outstop, the drawer is extended until the drawer back is 31⁄2 inches from the closed position of inside face of the drawer front. The ‘‘weight density’’ is calculated by dividing the cabinet’s actual weight by its volume in cubic feet (the multiple of the product’s actual width, depth, and height). A ‘‘central locking system’’ locks all drawers in a unit. Also excluded from the scope are fire proof or fire-resistant file cabinets that meet Underwriters Laboratories (UL) fire protection standard 72, class 350, which covers the test procedures applicable to fireresistant equipment intended to protect paper records. The merchandise subject to the investigation is classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 9403.10.0020. The subject merchandise may also enter under HTSUS subheadings 9403.10.0040, 9403.20.0080, and 9403.20.0090. While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the investigation is dispositive.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On August 1, 2019, Commerce published its Preliminary Determination of sales at LTFV of file cabinets from China and gave parties an opportunity to comment.1 Commerce received no comments or requests for a hearing. As there are no changes from, or comments upon, the Preliminary Determination, Commerce finds that there is no reason to modify its analysis. Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice.

Sfmt 4703 As no company subject to this investigation submitted an application for separate rate status, Commerce preliminarily determined that none of the companies subject to this investigation demonstrated eligibility for separate rate status and were thus found to be part of the China-wide entity.3 In this final determination, we continue to treat all 62 exporters or producers subject to this investigation as part of the China-wide entity.4 China-Wide Entity As explained in the Preliminary Determination, Commerce did not receive timely responses to its quantity and value (Q&V) questionnaire from exporters and/or producers of subject merchandise that were named in the petition and to which Commerce issued Q&V questionnaires.5 As noted above, these non-responsive companies also did not demonstrate separate rate eligibility, and accordingly, were determined to be a part of the Chinawide entity. Furthermore, as explained in the Preliminary Determination, the China-wide entity failed to provide necessary information, withheld information requested by Commerce, failed to provide information in a timely manner, and significantly impeded this proceeding by not submitting the requested information. Moreover, the China-wide entity was found to be noncooperative.6 Thus, we continue to find that the use of adverse facts available (AFA) pursuant to section 776(a)–(b) of the Act is appropriate, and we are continuing to base the China-wide entity’s rate on AFA. China-Wide Rate 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 3 Id. 4 Id. 5 See 6 Id.
