(Huaxing), rebutted the petitioner’s ministerial error comments.4 Period of Investigation The period of investigation is January 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019. Scope of Investigation The product covered by this investigation is glass containers from China. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see the appendix to this notice. Legal Authority When ministerial errors are alleged with respect to preliminary determinations in LTFV investigations, 19 CFR 351.224(e) provides that Commerce will analyze any allegations received and, if appropriate, correct any significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination. A ministerial error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ‘‘an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.’’ A significant ministerial error is defined as a ministerial error, the correction of which, either singly or in combination with other errors, would result in: (1) a change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the weightedaverage dumping margin calculated in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination; or (2) a difference between a weighted-average dumping 2 See Zibo Modern’s Letter, ‘‘Glass Containers from China—Ministerial Error Comment,’’ dated May 5, 2020 (Zibo Modern’s ME Allegation); see also Zibo Shelley’s Letter, ‘‘Glass Containers from China—Ministerial Error Comment,’’ dated May 5, 2020 (Zibo Shelley’s ME Allegation); and Zibo Sunfect’s Letter, ‘‘Glass Containers from China— Ministerial Error Comment,’’ dated May 5, 2020 (Zibo Sunfect’s ME Allegation). 3 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Certain Glass Containers from the People’s Republic of China: Ministerial Error Comments,’’ dated May 7, 2020 (Petitioner’s ME Allegation). 4 See Huaxing’s Letter, ‘‘Certain Glass Containers China: Comment on Petitioner’s Ministerial Error Allegation,’’ dated May 8, 2020.

The petitioner alleges that Commerce failed to convert free-on-board Global Trade Atlas import values that were used as surrogate values into cost, insurance, and freight import values.

However, we find the petitioner’s allegation is methodological, rather than ministerial, in nature as it relates to a calculation methodology. Hence, we have not made any changes to the Preliminary Determination based upon the petitioner’s allegation. For details regarding these decisions, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum.6 Commerce’s regulations do not permit rebuttals to ministerial error comments with respect to preliminary determinations.7 Therefore, we have not considered Huaxing’s rebuttal comments.

certain ministerial errors in its Preliminary Determination.\2\ On May 
7, 2020, the American Glass Packaging Coalition (the petitioner), also

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

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation is January 1, 2019 through June 30, 
2019.

Scope of Investigation

    The product covered by this investigation is glass containers from 
China. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, 
see the appendix to this notice.

Legal Authority

    When ministerial errors are alleged with respect to preliminary 
determinations in LTFV investigations, 19 CFR 351.224(e) provides that 
Commerce will analyze any allegations received and, if appropriate, 
correct any significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary 
determination. A ministerial error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as 
``an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, 
clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the 
like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the 
Secretary considers ministerial.'' A significant ministerial error is 
defined as a ministerial error, the correction of which, either singly 
or in combination with other errors, would result in: (1) a change of 
at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 
percent of, the weighted-average dumping margin calculated in the 
original (erroneous) preliminary determination; or (2) a difference 
between a weighted-average dumping

[[Page 33118]]

margin of zero or de minimis and a weighted-average dumping margin of 
greater than de minimis or vice versa.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See 19 CFR 351.224(g).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Analysis of Ministerial Error Allegations

    Zibo Modern, Zibo Shelley, and Zibo Sunfect allege that Commerce 
made ministerial errors in identifying certain of their producers in 
the exporter-producer combinations listed in the Preliminary 
Determination notice (i.e., Commerce used incorrect producer names or 
omitted certain producers). The petitioner alleges that Commerce failed 
to convert free-on-board Global Trade Atlas import values that were 
used as surrogate values into cost, insurance, and freight import 
values.
    We agree with the allegations regarding the producers' names and 
have listed the correct producers' names (Xuzhou Supengyongxu Glass 
Products Co., Ltd. and Zibo Shelley Light Industrial Products Co., 
Ltd.) and included the omitted export-producer combinations for the 
exporter Zibo Sunfect International Trade Co., Ltd. in the rate table 
below. However, we find the petitioner's allegation is methodological, 
rather than ministerial, in nature as it relates to a calculation 
methodology. Hence, we have not made any changes to the Preliminary 
Determination based upon the petitioner's allegation. For details 
regarding these decisions, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Memorandum, ``Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of 
Certain Glass Containers from the People's Republic of China: 
Allegations of Ministerial Errors in the Preliminary 
Determination,'' dated concurrently with this notice (Ministerial 
Error Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's regulations do not permit rebuttals to ministerial error 
comments with respect to preliminary determinations.\7\ Therefore, we 
have not considered Huaxing's rebuttal comments.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.224(c)(3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amended Preliminary Determination

    Commerce has amended its Preliminary Determination to reflect the 
correct name of Zibo Modern's producer, Xuzhou Supengyongxu Glass 
Products Co., Ltd., and the correct name of Zibo Shelley's producer, 
Zibo Shelley Light Industrial Products Co., Ltd., and to add four 
exporter-producer combinations for the exporter Zibo Sunfect 
International Trade Co., Ltd. that were inadvertently omitted from the 
Preliminary Determination. The weighted-average dumping margin and cash 
deposit rate determined in the Preliminary Determination for the 
separate rate recipients, other than the mandatory respondents, apply 
to the exporter-producer combinations listed below. Specifically, 
Commerce is amending its Preliminary Determination by assigning the 
following weighted-average dumping margins to the exporter-producer 
combinations listed below:
