Pursuant to the Government in the Sunshine Act, 5 U.S.C. 552b, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights will hold a public briefing to examine the exemption under the Fair Labor Standards Act—the section 14(c) waiver program—which permits employers to pay less than the minimum wage to individuals with disabilities. In April 2018, the U.S. Department of Labor reported that more than 1,800 employers held a waiver of minimum wage requirements, affecting at least some 150,000 workers. Reliable reports indicate that many employers with 14(c) certificates pay far below prevailing or minimum wage while segregating these employees from the non-disabled workforce. The Commission will investigate whether this violates the civil rights of people with disabilities. The Commission will analyze the use of the 14(c) waiver program, its effect on people with disabilities, and oversight by the Departments of Labor and Justice. This briefing is open to the public. We will offer an open comment session in which members of the public will have an opportunity to address the Commission; detailed information, including on registering for a threeminute speaking slot, can be viewed here. Individuals may attend the briefing without the need to confirm attendance or RSVP. The event will also live-stream. (Information subject to change.) There will also be a public call-in line (listenonly): 800–822–2024, conference ID: 8561700. If attending in person, we ask that you RSVP to publicaffairs@ usccr.gov. Persons with disabilities who need accommodation should contact Pamela Dunston at 202–376–8105 or at access@usccr.gov at least seven business days before the date of the meeting. The Commission welcomes the submission of additional material for consideration as we prepare our report; please submit to subminimumwages@ usccr.gov no later than December 15, 2019.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) finds that Weihai Zhongwei Rubber Co., Ltd. (Zhongwei), an exporter of certain new pneumatic offthe-road tires (OTR tires) from the People’s Republic of China (China), did not sell merchandise in the United States at prices below normal value during the period of review (POR) September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: the purposes of these final results, Commerce has made no changes to the Preliminary Results. Background Commerce published the Preliminary Results of this administrative review on August 23, 2019.1 We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results; however, no interested party submitted comments. Final Results of the Review Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the POR from September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018: Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order includes new pneumatic tires designed for off-the-road and offhighway use, subject to certain exceptions. The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 4011.20.10.25, 4011.20.10.35, 4011.20.50.30, 4011.20.50.50, 4011.61.00.00, 4011.62.00.00, 4011.63.00.00, 4011.69.00.00, 4011.92.00.00, 4011.93.40.00, 4011.93.80.00, 4011.94.40.00, and 4011.94.80.00. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only; the written product description of the scope of the order is dispositive. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.2 Separate Rates In our Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that information placed on the record by Zhongwei and Qingdao Honghua Tyre Factory (Honghua) demonstrates that these companies are entitled to separate rate status,3 which we preliminarily granted.4 We received no comments since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provide a basis for reconsidering the determination with respect to the separate rate status of these entities. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to find that Zhongwei and Honghua are eligible for a separate rate. Changes Since the Preliminary Results As noted above, we received no comments in response to the Preliminary Results. Accordingly, for 1 See Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017–2018, 84 FR 44283 (August 23, 2019) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum (PDM). 2 See Preliminary Results, PDM at 3–5. 3 See Zhongwei’s March 11, 2019 Section A Questionnaire Response at 2–14; see also Honghua’s Letter, ‘‘Separate Rate Application: Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated December 14, 2018. 4 See Preliminary Results, PDM at 9–13. PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Exporter Weihai Zhongwei Rubber Co., Ltd ........................................... Qingdao Honghua Tyre Factory Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 0.00 0.00 Commerce’s policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide entity applies to this administrative review.5 Under this policy, the Chinawide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the China-wide entity. Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity in this review, and we did not self-initiate a review, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate is not subject to change (i.e., 105.31 percent).6 Where the rates for the individually examined companies are all zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available, section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) provides that Commerce may use ‘‘any reasonable method’’ to establish the allothers rate. As the margin calculated for the mandatory respondent, Zhongwei, is zero, we assigned Honghua, the sole separate-rate respondent not selected for individual examination in this review, a separate rate margin based on Zhongwei’s weighted-average dumping margin, which we find to be reasonable and consistent with practice.7 Disclosure Commerce normally discloses the calculations performed regarding these final results to parties in this proceeding 5 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013). 6 The China-wide rate was determined in Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012– 2013, 80 FR 20197 (April 15, 2015). 7 See, e.g., Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Final Determination of No Shipments, and Partial Rescission; 2015–2016, 83 FR 35461, 35462 (July 26, 2018) (citing Albemarle Corp. v.
