SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) preliminarily determines that certain companies covered by the administrative review and new shipper reviews did not make sales of subject merchandise at prices below normal value (NV). We invite interested parties AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6911 to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Applicable February 6, 2020. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sergio Balbontin or Alexis Cherry, AD/ CVD Operations, Office VIII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–6478 or (202) 482–0607, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Commerce is conducting an administrative review and an aligned new shipper review (NSR) of the antidumping duty order on multilayered wood flooring (MLWF) from the People’s Republic of China (China). The period of review (POR) for both reviews is December 1, 2017 through November 30, 2018. The administrative review covers 99 companies, including two mandatory respondents: The Fusong Jinlong Group 1 (Jinlong) and Jiangsu Guyu International Trade Co., Ltd. (Guyu). The new shipper review covers Muchsee Wood (Chuzhou) Co., Ltd. (Muchsee Wood). We preliminarily determine that sales of subject merchandise by Jinlong and Guyu have not been made at prices below NV.2 We also preliminarily determine that a single sale of subject merchandise by Muchsee Wood has not been made at prices below NV.3 In addition, we are preliminarily granting separate rates to Jinlong, Guyu, Muchsee Wood and 54 producers/exporters, and determine that 21 producer/exporters made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Finally, we are rescinding the review with respect to 1 Commerce has previously indicated that Dalian Qianqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd. (Dalian Qianqiu), Fusong Jinlong Wooden Group Co., Ltd. (Fusong Jinlong), Fusong Jinqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd. (Fusong Jinqiu), and Fusong Qianqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd. (Fusong Qianqiu) are collectively known as the ‘‘Fusong Jinlong Group.’’ See e.g., Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2011– 2012, 79 FR 26712 (May 9, 2014) at n.14. We are addressing the status of these companies in a preliminary affiliation and collapsing analysis memorandum based on information on the record of this administrative review. See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results in the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper Review: Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China; 2017–2018’’ (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice, at the ‘‘Affiliation and Single Entity’’ section. 2 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 3 Id.

Scope of the Order 4 The product covered by the Order is MLWF from China. For a complete description of the scope of this administrative review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Partial Rescission of Review Commerce initiated a review of 99 companies in this administrative review 5 and one company in this new shipper review.6 Shenzhenshi Huanwei Woods Co., Ltd. (Huanwei Woods) and Jinqiao Flooring submitted timely requests to withdraw from the administrative review.7 No other parties requested a review of Jinqiao Flooring; however, the American Manufacturers of Multilayered Wood Flooring (the petitioners) requested a review of Huanwei Woods.8 Accordingly, Commerce is rescinding the administrative review only with respect to Jinqiao Flooring.9 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES Based on an analysis of information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), no shipment certifications, and other record information, we preliminarily determine that 21 companies had no shipments of 4 See Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Amended Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 76 FR 76690 (December 8, 2011), as amended in Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Amended Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 77 FR 5484 (February 3, 2012) (collectively, Order). 5 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 9297 (March 14, 2019) (First Initiation Notice); see also Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 12200 (April 1, 2019); Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 18777 (May 2, 2019); and Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 3014 (January 17, 2020), correcting the First Initiation Notice (collectively, Initiation Notices). 6 See Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review; 2017– 2018, 84 FR 9494 (March 15, 2019). 7 See Huanwei Woods’ Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from People’s Republic of China: Notice of Withdrawal of Counsel and Withdrawal of Request for 2017–2018 Administrative Review,’’ dated May 9, 2019; see also Jinqiao Flooring’s Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: 7th Administrative Review; Withdrawal of Administrative Review Request,’’ dated June 12, 2019. 8 See Petitioners’ Letter, ‘‘Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated December 31, 2018. 9 See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:54 Feb 05, 2020 Jkt 250001 subject merchandise during the POR.10 For additional information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Consistent with our practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, we are not rescinding this administrative review with respect to these companies but, rather, intend to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.11 Separate Rates We preliminarily determine that, in addition to Jinlong and Guyu, 54 companies not individually examined are eligible for separate rates in this administrative review.12 We also preliminarily determine that Muchsee Wood is eligible for a separate rate in this new shipper review. The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a separate rate to be applied to companies not selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for separate-rate respondents which Commerce did not examine individually in an administrative review. For the preliminary results of this administrative review, Commerce has determined the estimated dumping margins for Jinlong and Guyu to be zero.13 Because this is the only calculated POR margin available and in light of Albemarle Corp. v. United States, we are assigning this rate to all eligible non-selected respondents who qualify for a separate rate in this administrative review.14 10 See Appendix II for a list of these companies. Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694–95 (October 24, 2011) (NME AD Assessment) and the ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section, below. 12 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 11– 15, for more details. 13 See Memoranda, ‘‘Preliminary Results Margin Calculation for the Fusong Jinlong Group’’ and ‘‘Preliminary Results Margin Calculation for Jiangsu Guyu International Trading Co., Ltd.,’’ both dated concurrently with this notice; see also Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 14 See Albemarle Corp. v. United States, 821 F.3d 1345 (Fed. Cir. 2016); see also Preliminary Decision Memorandum at the ‘‘Weighted-Average Dumping Margin for Non-Examined Separate-Rate Companies in the Administrative Review’’ section, for more details. 11 See PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The China-Wide Entity Commerce’s policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide entity applies to this administrative review.15 Under this policy, the Chinawide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, the entity is not under review, and the entity’s rate is not subject to change. Aside from the companies we preliminarily find made no shipments and the company for which the review is being rescinded, Commerce considers all other companies for which a review was requested and which did not demonstrate separate rate eligibility to be part of the China-wide entity.16 For the preliminary results of this review, we consider 18 companies to be part of the China-wide entity. For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Methodology We are conducting these reviews in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and 351.214. We calculated export prices for Jinlong, Guyu, and Muchsee Wood in accordance with section 772(a) of the Act. Because China is an NME within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, we calculated NV in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, 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 in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Commerce building.

For any individually examined respondent whose (estimated) ad valorem weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, Commerce will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total quantity of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).19 Commerce will also calculate (estimated) ad valorem importer-specific assessment rates with which to assess whether the per-unit assessment rate is de minimis. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. If the individually examined respondents’ ad valorem weightedaverage dumping margins continue to be zero or de minimis in the final results, or an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis,20 we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For the respondents that were not selected for individual examination in this administrative review that qualified for a separate rate, the assessment rate will be the separate rate established in the final results of this administrative review. If, in the final results, this rate continues to be zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by the individually examined respondent, and for the 18 companies that did not qualify for a separate rate in the administrative review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the China-wide rate (i.e., 85.13 percent).21 In addition, if we continue to find in the final results no shipments of 19 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). 20 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 21 See Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final Determination of No Shipments; 2016–2017, 84 FR 38002, 38003 (August 5, 2019).

These cash 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) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/ or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. 22 See Appendix II for a list of these companies.

Abstract The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is requesting extension of a currently approved information collection for the Crab Rationalization Program (CR Program). The information being collected is necessary for NMFS to manage the CR Program. NMFS manages the king and Tanner crab fisheries in the exclusive economic zone of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands under the Fishery Management Plan for Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs (FMP). The North Pacific Fishery Management Council prepared the FMP under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act as amended in 2006. Regulations implementing the FMP and the CR Program appear at 50 CFR part 680. Information on the CR Program is posted on the NMFS Alaska Region website at: https:// www.fisheries.noaa.gov/alaska/ sustainable-fisheries/bering-sea-andaleutian-islands-bsai-crabrationalization-program. NMFS established the CR Program as a catch share program for nine crab fisheries in the BSAI and assigned quota share (QS) to persons and processor quota share (PQS) to processors based on their historic participation in one or more of these nine crab fisheries during a qualifying period. Under the CR Program, share allocations to harvesters and processors and incentives to participate in fishery cooperatives increase efficiencies, provide economic stability, and facilitate compensated reduction of excess capacities in the harvesting and processing sectors. Community interests are protected by Western Alaska Community Development Quota (CDQ) allocations, regional landing and processing requirements, and other measures. CR Program components include QS allocation, PQS allocation, individual fishing quota (IFQ) issuance, individual processing quota (IPQ) issuance, quota transfers, use caps, crab harvesting cooperatives, protections for Gulf of Alaska groundfish fisheries, QS/PQS matching, an arbitration system, monitoring, economic data collection, and cost recovery fee collection. This information collection contains the forms used by participants in the CR Program to apply for or renew permits; transfer or lease IFQ, IPQ, QS, or PQS; and apply for exemption from regional delivery requirements. This information collection also contains the following reports for which no collection forms are used: PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6915 • The North or South Region Delivery Exemption Report is submitted by IFQ holders who signed a preseason application. This report provides NMFS with the means to assess how the industry is exercising the exemption opportunity and whether implementing regulations are sufficient to meet the Council’s Statement of Intent for Amendment 41 to the FMP. • The Community Impact Report or IPQ Holder Report is submitted by a community entity or IPQ holder, respectively, and provides documentation needed by NMFS to evaluate the efficacy of privately administered contracts. • The CDQ Group Notification of Community Representative is submitted by the CDQ groups representing Saint Paul and Saint George to designate to NMFS a single entity as the regional representative for these two communities. • The Eligible Crab Community Organization (ECCO) Annual Report is submitted by the ECCO. It details the use of the crab QS and IFQ and is intended to ensure that the ECCO maintains the QS and IFQ to benefit residents of eligible communities. II. Method of Collection Information is collected primarily via mail, fax, or email. The following may be submitted online through eFISH on the NMFS Alaska Region website: The Application for Transfer (Lease) of Crab IPQ, the Application for Transfer of IFQ between Crab Harvesting Cooperatives, and renewals of registered crab receiver permits and Federal crab vessel permits. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0514. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Extension of a current information collection. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations; Individuals or households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 575. Estimated Time per Response: 20 hours each for Application for Exemption from CR Crab North or South Region Delivery Requirements, and North or South Region Delivery Exemption Report; 15 hours for Application for Annual Crab Harvesting Cooperative Individual Fishing Quota Permit; 5 hours for CDQ Group Notification of Community Representative; 4 hours each for ECCO Annual Report and to file an appeal; 2.5 hrs each for Application for Annual Crab IFQ Permit, and Application to Become an ECCO; 2 hours each for Application for Annual Crab IPQ E:\FR\FM\06FEN1.SGM 06FEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Commerce is conducting an administrative review and an aligned new 
shipper review (NSR) of the antidumping duty order on multilayered wood 
flooring (MLWF) from the People's Republic of China (China). The period 
of review (POR) for both reviews is December 1, 2017 through November 
30, 2018. The administrative review covers 99 companies, including two 
mandatory respondents: The Fusong Jinlong Group \1\ (Jinlong) and 
Jiangsu Guyu International Trade Co., Ltd. (Guyu). The new shipper 
review covers Muchsee Wood (Chuzhou) Co., Ltd. (Muchsee Wood). We 
preliminarily determine that sales of subject merchandise by Jinlong 
and Guyu have not been made at prices below NV.\2\ We also 
preliminarily determine that a single sale of subject merchandise by 
Muchsee Wood has not been made at prices below NV.\3\ In addition, we 
are preliminarily granting separate rates to Jinlong, Guyu, Muchsee 
Wood and 54 producers/exporters, and determine that 21 producer/
exporters made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. 
Finally, we are rescinding the review with respect to

Partial Rescission of Review

    Commerce initiated a review of 99 companies in this administrative 
review \5\ and one company in this new shipper review.\6\ Shenzhenshi 
Huanwei Woods Co., Ltd. (Huanwei Woods) and Jinqiao Flooring submitted 
timely requests to withdraw from the administrative review.\7\ No other 
parties requested a review of Jinqiao Flooring; however, the American 
Manufacturers of Multilayered Wood Flooring (the petitioners) requested 
a review of Huanwei Woods.\8\ Accordingly, Commerce is rescinding the 
administrative review only with respect to Jinqiao Flooring.\9\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on an analysis of information from U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP), no shipment certifications, and other record 
information, we preliminarily determine that 21 companies had no 
shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.\10\ For additional 
information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum. Consistent with our practice in non-market economy (NME) 
cases, we are not rescinding this administrative review with respect to 
these companies but, rather, intend to complete the review and issue 
appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Appendix II for a list of these companies.
    \11\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011) (NME 
AD Assessment) and the ``Assessment Rates'' section, below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    We preliminarily determine that, in addition to Jinlong and Guyu, 
54 companies not individually examined are eligible for separate rates 
in this administrative review.\12\ We also preliminarily determine that 
Muchsee Wood is eligible for a separate rate in this new shipper 
review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 11-15, for more 
details.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a separate rate to be applied to companies not 
selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its 
examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Generally, Commerce 
looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for 
calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when 
calculating the rate for separate-rate respondents which Commerce did 
not examine individually in an administrative review. For the 
preliminary results of this administrative review, Commerce has 
determined the estimated dumping margins for Jinlong and Guyu to be 
zero.\13\ Because this is the only calculated POR margin available and 
in light of Albemarle Corp. v. United States, we are assigning this 
rate to all eligible non-selected respondents who qualify for a 
separate rate in this administrative review.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Memoranda, ``Preliminary Results Margin Calculation for 
the Fusong Jinlong Group'' and ``Preliminary Results Margin 
Calculation for Jiangsu Guyu International Trading Co., Ltd.,'' both 
dated concurrently with this notice; see also Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.
    \14\ See Albemarle Corp. v. United States, 821 F.3d 1345 (Fed. 
Cir. 2016); see also Preliminary Decision Memorandum at the 
``Weighted-Average Dumping Margin for Non-Examined Separate-Rate 
Companies in the Administrative Review'' section, for more details.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The China-Wide Entity

    Commerce's policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide 
entity applies to this administrative review.\15\ Under this policy, 
the China-wide entity will not be under review unless a party 
specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the 
entity. Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, 
the entity is not under review, and the entity's rate is not subject to 
change.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Aside from the companies we preliminarily find made no shipments 
and the company for which the review is being rescinded, Commerce 
considers all other companies for which a review was requested and 
which did not demonstrate separate rate eligibility to be part of the 
China-wide entity.\16\ For the preliminary results of this review, we 
consider 18 companies to be part of the China-wide entity. For 
additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See Initiation Notices (``All firms listed below that wish 
to qualify for separate rate status in the administrative reviews 
involving NME countries must complete, as appropriate, either a 
separate rate application or certification, as described below.'') 
Companies that are subject to this administrative review that are 
considered to be part of the China-wide entity are listed in 
Appendix II.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    We are conducting these reviews in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and 
351.214. We calculated export prices for Jinlong, Guyu, and Muchsee 
Wood in accordance with section 772(a) of the Act. Because China is an 
NME within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, we calculated NV 
in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, 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 in the Central Records 
Unit, Room B8024 of the main Commerce building. In addition, a complete

by these reviews, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b). For the 
companies for which the administrative review is rescinded, antidumping 
duties shall 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)(1)(i). We intend to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions

[[Page 6914]]

with respect to the companies for which this administrative review is 
rescinded to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice.
    For any individually examined respondent whose (estimated) ad 
valorem weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis 
(i.e., less than 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, 
Commerce will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis 
of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the 
importer's examined sales and the total quantity of those sales, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\19\ Commerce will also calculate 
(estimated) ad valorem importer-specific assessment rates with which to 
assess whether the per-unit assessment rate is de minimis. We will 
instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review when the importer-specific ad valorem assessment 
rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or de 
minimis. If the individually examined respondents' ad valorem weighted-
average dumping margins continue to be zero or de minimis in the final 
results, or an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or 
de minimis,\20\ we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ 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).
    \20\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the respondents that were not selected for individual 
examination in this administrative review that qualified for a separate 
rate, the assessment rate will be the separate rate established in the 
final results of this administrative review. If, in the final results, 
this rate continues to be zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 
percent), Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases 
submitted by the individually examined respondent, and for the 18 
companies that did not qualify for a separate rate in the 
administrative review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such 
entries at the China-wide rate (i.e., 85.13 percent).\21\ In addition, 
if we continue to find in the final results no shipments of subject 
merchandise for the companies for which we preliminarily find no such 
shipments during the POR,\22\ Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate 
any suspended entries of subject merchandise from those companies at 
the China-wide rate, with the exception of certain entries from Yingyi-
Nature and Changzhou Hawd that Commerce will identify in appropriate 
instructions to CBP.\23\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of these reviews for all shipments of 
the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the established in the final results; (2) for previously investigated 
or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters for which a review was 
not requested and that received a separate rate in a prior segment of 
this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing 
exporter-specific rate; (3) for all Chinese exporters of subject 
merchandise that 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., 
85.13 percent); 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 Chinese exporter that supplied that 
non-Chinese exporter. These cash 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) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties 
prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce's 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing 
duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping 
duties.
    We are issuing and publishing the preliminary results of these 
reviews in accordance with sections 751(a)(l), 751(a)(2)(B)(iv), 
751(a)(3), and 777(i)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: January 31, 2020.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
