SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On August 5, 2019, Commerce initiated an LTFV investigation of imports of wind towers from Vietnam.1 The period of investigation is January 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019. On 1 See Utility Scale Wind Towers from Canada, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Less-Than-FairValue Investigations, 84 FR 37992 (August 5, 2019). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Feb 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 Postponement of Final Determination Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2) provide that a final determination may be postponed until not later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an affirmative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by the exporters or producers who account for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a negative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by the petitioner. Further, 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2) requires that such postponement requests by exporters be accompanied by a request for extension of provisional measures from a four-month period to a period of not more than six months, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act. On February 11, 2020, CS Wind Vietnam Co., Ltd. (CS Wind), the mandatory respondent in this investigation, requested that Commerce postpone the deadline for the final determination until no later than 135 days from the publication of the Preliminary Determination, and extend the application of the provisional measures from a four-month period to a period of not more than six months.3 In accordance with section 735(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii), because: (1) The preliminary determination was affirmative; (2) the request was made by the exporter and producer who accounts for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise; and (3) no compelling reasons for denial exist, Commerce is postponing the final determination until no later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the Preliminary Determination, and extending the provisional measures from a four-month period to a period of not more than six months. Accordingly, Commerce will issue its final determination no later than June 29, 2020.4 2 See Utility Scale Wind Towers from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less-Than-Fair-Value and Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 85 FR 8565 (February 14, 2020) (Preliminary Determination). 3 See CS Wind’s Letter, ‘‘CS Wind’s Request to Extend the Final Determination: Less Than Fair Value Investigation of Utility Scale Wind Towers from Vietnam (A–552–825),’’ dated February 11, 2020. 4 Postponing the final determination to 135 days after the publication of the Preliminary PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11341 Notice to Interested Parties This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 735(a)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(g).

(KaiPing), have not established their eligibility for a separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity. We also continue to assign the China-wide rate to an additional nine companies, because we determine that they are not eligible for a separate rate. Finally, we continue to grant a separate rate to Jiangmen New Star Hi-Tech Enterprise Ltd.

Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. Commerce conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The products covered by the order include drawn stainless steel sinks. Imports of subject merchandise are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7324.10.0000 and 7324.10.0010. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.3 Final Results of Review and Final Determination of No Shipments We made no changes from the Preliminary Results. Therefore, as a result of this review, we determine that the two mandatory respondents, New Shichu and KaiPing, have not established their eligibility for a separate rate and are part of the Chinawide entity. We also determine that, because the following companies did not submit separate rate applications or certifications, they are ineligible for a separate rate and are part of the Chinawide entity: B&R Industries Limited (B&R); Feidong Import and Export Co. Ltd. (Feidong); Guangdong G-Top Import & Export Co., Ltd. (G-Top); Jiangmen Pioneer Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Pioneer); Ningbo Afa Kitchen and Bath Co., Ltd. (Ningbo Afa); Xinhe Stainless Steel Products Co., Ltd. (Xinhe); Yuyao Afa Kitchenware Co., Ltd. (Yuyao Afa); and Zhongshan Superte Kitchenware Co., Ltd. (Superte). We also determine that, because Zhuhai Kohler Kitchen & Bathroom Products Co. Ltd. (Kohler) failed to respond to Commerce’s supplemental separate rate questionnaire, this company is ineligible for a separate rate and is part of the China-wide entity.

mandatory respondents, Guangdong New Shichu Import and Export Company 
Limited (New Shichu) and KaiPing Dawn Plumbing Products, Inc. 
(KaiPing), have not established their eligibility for a separate rate 
and are part of the China-wide entity. We also continue to assign the 
China-wide rate to an additional nine companies, because we determine 
that they are not eligible for a separate rate. Finally, we continue to 
grant a separate rate to Jiangmen New Star Hi-Tech Enterprise Ltd. (New 
Star), which demonstrated eligibility for separate rate status but was 
not selected for individual examination. The period of review (POR) is 
April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019.

DATES: Applicable February 27, 2020.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order include drawn stainless steel 
sinks. Imports of subject merchandise are currently classified under 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 
7324.10.0000 and 7324.10.0010. Although the HTSUS subheadings are

Final Results of Review and Final Determination of No Shipments

    We made no changes from the Preliminary Results. Therefore, as a 
result of this review, we determine that the two mandatory respondents, 
New Shichu and KaiPing, have not established their eligibility for a 
separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity. We also determine 
that, because the following companies did not submit separate rate 
applications or certifications, they are ineligible for a separate rate 
and are part of the China-wide entity: B&R Industries Limited (B&R); 
Feidong Import and Export Co. Ltd. (Feidong); Guangdong G-Top Import & 
Export Co., Ltd. (G-Top); Jiangmen Pioneer Import & Export Co., Ltd. 
(Pioneer); Ningbo Afa Kitchen and Bath Co., Ltd. (Ningbo Afa); Xinhe 
Stainless Steel Products Co., Ltd. (Xinhe); Yuyao Afa Kitchenware Co., 
Ltd. (Yuyao Afa); and Zhongshan Superte Kitchenware Co., Ltd. 
(Superte). We also determine that, because Zhuhai Kohler Kitchen & 
Bathroom Products Co. Ltd. (Kohler) failed to respond to Commerce's 
supplemental separate rate questionnaire, this company is ineligible 
for a separate rate and is part of the China-wide entity. Finally, we 
continue to grant a separate rate to New Star, which demonstrated 
eligibility for separate rate status, but was not selected for 
individual examination.\4\ We determine that the dumping margin for New 
Star for the period April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019 is as follows:

    \4\ We assigned New Star the most recently assigned separate 
rate in this proceeding (i.e., 1.78 percent). See Drawn Stainless

Assessment Rates

    Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b). 
Because we determined that the following companies were not eligible 
for a separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity, we will 
instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 76.45 percent to 
all entries of subject merchandise during the POR that were produced 
and/or exported by: B&R; Feidong; G-Top; KaiPing; Kohler; New Shichu; 
Ningbo Afa; Pioneer; Superte; Xinhe; and Yuyao Afa. We will instruct 
CBP to apply an assessment rate to all entries of merchandise produced 
and/or exported by New Star equal to the dumping margin indicated 
above. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective 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) For the company listed above that has a separate rate, the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established in these final results 
of review; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-
Chinese exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be equal to the exporter-specific 
weighted-average dumping margin published of the most recently-
completed segment of this proceeding; (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 China-wide 
entity, 76.45 percent; and (4) for all exporters of subject merchandise 
which are not located in China and which are not eligible for a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to 
Chinese exporter(s) that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their 
responsibility, under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2), to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping 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 duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

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