Ltd. (Magic), Marisa International (Marisa), Navneet, Pioneer Stationery Private Limited (Pioneer), PP Bafna Ventures Private Limited (PP Bafna),5 SAB, SGM Paper Products, and Super Impex.6 This review covers two mandatory respondents, Navneet and SAB.

All deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by 40 days. If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with Commerce’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day. 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘Certain Lined Paper Products from India: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017–2018,’’ dated June 19, 2019. 5 The name of PP Bafna was inadvertently misspelled in the initiation notice. 6 Initiation Notice, 83 FR at 57412. 7 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Lined Paper Products from India; 2017–2018,’’ dated concurrently and hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Nov 13, 2019 Jkt 250001 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments On November 22 and December 6, 2018, in their respective responses to Commerce’s quantity and value questionnaire, Lodha and Pioneer reported that they had no exports or sales of subject merchandise into the United States during the POR. On December 10, 2018, Marisa submitted a certification of no shipments. To confirm Lodha’s, Marisa’s, and Pioneer’s no-shipment claims, Commerce issued a no-shipment inquiry to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requesting that it review Lodha’s, Marisa’s, and Pioneer’s no-shipment claims. CBP reported that it had no information to contradict these claims of no shipments during the POR. Given that Lodha, Marisa, and Pioneer reported that they made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, and there is no information calling their claims into question, we preliminarily determine that Lodha, Pioneer, and Marisa did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. Consistent with Commerce’s practice, we will not rescind the review with respect to Lodha, Marisa, and Pioneer but, rather, will complete the review and issue instructions to CBP based on the final results.8 Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Act. Export price is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our preliminary results, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an Appendix to this notice. Rate for Non-Selected Respondents For the rate for non-selected respondents in an administrative review, generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market economy investigation. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ‘‘an amount equal to the weighted-average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the basis of facts available}.’’ In this segment of the proceeding, we calculated a margin for Navneet that was not zero, de minimis, or based on facts available. Accordingly, we have preliminarily applied the margin calculated for Navneet to the nonindividually examined respondents. Preliminary Results of the Review We preliminarily determine that, for the period September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018, the following weighted-average dumping margins exist: Producer/exporter Cellpage Ventures Private Limited .......................................... Goldenpalm Manufacturers PVT Limited ..................................... Kokuyo Riddhi Paper Products Pvt. Ltd .................................... Lotus Global Private Limited ...... Magic International Pvt. Ltd ........ Navneet Education Ltd ............... PP Bafna Ventures Private Limited .......................................... SAB International ........................ SGM Paper Products ................. Super Impex ............................... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 2.30 2.30 2.30 2.30 2.30 2.30 2.30 0.00 2.30 2.30 Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. If the weighted-average dumping margin for Navneet or SAB is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 220 / Thursday, November 14, 2019 / Notices percent), we will calculate importerspecific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).9 If the weighted-average dumping margin for the respondents listed above is zero or de minimis in the final results, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results, we will instruct CBP not to assess antidumping duties on any of their entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.10 In accordance with Commerce’s assessment practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Navneet or SAB for which it did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate of 3.91 percent, as established in the less-than-fair-value investigation, if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.11 For a full discussion of this matter, see Assessment Policy Notice.12 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for respondents noted above will be the rates established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 9 In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the CLPP from India AD Order is certain 
lined paper products. The merchandise subject to this order is 
currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 4811.90.9035, 4811.90.9080, 
4820.30.0040, 4810.22.5044, 4811.90.9050, 4811.90.9090, 4820.10.2010,

Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Lined 
Paper Products from India; 2017-2018,'' dated concurrently and 
hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On November 22 and December 6, 2018, in their respective responses 
to Commerce's quantity and value questionnaire, Lodha and Pioneer 
reported that they had no exports or sales of subject merchandise into 
the United States during the POR. On December 10, 2018, Marisa 
submitted a certification of no shipments. To confirm Lodha's, 
Marisa's, and Pioneer's no-shipment claims, Commerce issued a no-
shipment inquiry to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requesting 
that it review Lodha's, Marisa's, and Pioneer's no-shipment claims. CBP 
reported that it had no information to contradict these claims of no 
shipments during the POR.
    Given that Lodha, Marisa, and Pioneer reported that they made no 
shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, 
and there is no information calling their claims into question, we 
preliminarily determine that Lodha, Pioneer, and Marisa did not have 
any reviewable transactions during the POR. Consistent with Commerce's 
practice, we will not rescind the review with respect to Lodha, Marisa, 
and Pioneer but, rather, will complete the review and issue 
instructions to CBP based on the final results.\8\

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Act. Export price is calculated in accordance with 
section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with 
section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology 
underlying our preliminary results, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum. The Preliminary 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 https://access.trade.gov and is available to all parties in the Central Records 
Unit, Room B-8094 of the main Commerce building. In addition, a 
complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed 
directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the topics 
discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an 
Appendix to this notice.

Rate for Non-Selected Respondents

    For the rate for non-selected respondents in an administrative 
review, generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, 
which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a 
market economy investigation. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, 
the all-others rate is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted-
average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established 
for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any 
zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the 
basis of facts available{time} .'' In this segment of the proceeding, 
we calculated a margin for Navneet that was not zero, de minimis, or 
based on facts available. Accordingly, we have preliminarily applied 
the margin calculated for Navneet to the non-individually examined 
respondents.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    We preliminarily determine that, for the period September 1, 2017 
through August 31, 2018, the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Weighted-
                                                                average
                      Producer/exporter                         dumping
                                                                margin
                                                               (percent)

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered 
by this review. If the weighted-average dumping margin for Navneet or 
SAB is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5

[[Page 61889]]

percent), we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem antidumping 
duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for each importer's examined sales to the total entered 
value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\9\ 
If the weighted-average dumping margin for the respondents listed above 
is zero or de minimis in the final results, or an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results, we will 
instruct CBP not to assess antidumping duties on any of their entries 
in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). (Final Modification 
for Reviews).
    \10\ Id., 77 FR at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with Commerce's assessment practice, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Navneet or SAB for which 
it did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United 
States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
all-others rate of 3.91 percent, as established in the less-than-fair-
value investigation, if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\11\ For a full discussion of 
this matter, see Assessment Policy Notice.\12\

publication of the final results of this review.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 review 
period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the 
Commerce's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties 
occurred and increase the subsequent assessment of the antidumping 
duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: November 7, 2019.
