Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 121 / Tuesday, June 23, 2020 / Notices jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES On May 18, 2020, within the applicable deadline, Commerce received a Notice of Intent to Participate from Archer Daniels Midland Company, Cargill, Incorporated, and Tate & Lyle Ingredients Americas LLC, the domestic interested parties in this proceeding.4 However, on May 29, 2020, the domestic interested parties withdrew their Notice of Intent to Participate and notified Commerce that they would not be filing a substantive response to the notice of initiation for the antidumping duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts from Canada. In light of the withdrawal of domestic interested parties to this proceeding, Commerce determines that there is no domestic participation or adequate substantive responses from a domestic interested party in this sunset review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(i)(C). On June 2, 2020, Commerce notified the International Trade Commission, in writing, that we intended to issue a final determination revoking this antidumping duty order.5 Scope of the Order The scope of the order includes all grades and granulation sizes of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate in their unblended forms, whether dry or in solution, and regardless of packaging type. The scope also includes blends of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate; as well as blends with other ingredients, such as sugar, where the unblended form(s) of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate constitute 40 percent or more, by weight, of the blend. The scope of the order also includes all forms of crude calcium citrate, including dicalcium citrate monohydrate, and tricalcium citrate tetrahydrate, which are intermediate products in the production of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate. The scope of the order does not include calcium citrate that satisfies the standards set forth in the United States Pharmacopeia and has been mixed with a functional excipient, such as dextrose or starch, where the excipient constitutes at least 2 percent, by weight, of the product. The scope of the order includes the hydrous and anhydrous forms of citric acid, the dihydrate and anhydrous forms of sodium citrate, otherwise known as citric acid sodium salt, and the monohydrate and monopotassium forms of potassium citrate. Sodium citrate also includes 4 See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). 5 See Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘Status Update for Sunset Review Initiated on May 1, 2020, for Citric Acid and Certain Citrate Salts from Canada,’’ dated June 2, 2020.

Citric acid and sodium citrate are classifiable under 2918.14.0000 and 2918.15.1000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), respectively. Potassium citrate and crude calcium citrate are classifiable under 2918.15.5000 and 3824.90.9290 of the HTSUS, respectively. Blends that include citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate are classifiable under 3824.90.9290 of the HTSUS. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope is dispositive. Determination To Revoke Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no domestic interested party files a notice of intent to participate, Commerce shall, within 90 days after the initiation of the review, issue a final determination revoking the order. Because all the domestic interested parties withdrew their notice of intent to participate in this sunset review, Commerce finds that no domestic interested party is participating in this sunset review. Therefore, consistent with the section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), we are revoking the antidumping duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts from Canada.6 Effective Date of Revocation The effective date of revocation is June 24, 2020, the fifth anniversary of the date of publication in the Federal Register of the most recent notice of continuation of this antidumping duty order.7 Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act, Commerce intends to issue instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 15 days after the publication of this notice, to terminate the suspension of liquidation of the merchandise subject to this order entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after June 24, 2020. Entries of subject merchandise prior to the effective date of revocation will continue to be subject to suspension of liquidation and antidumping duty deposit requirements. Commerce will complete any pending administrative reviews of this order and will conduct administrative reviews of subject merchandise entered prior to the 6 See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i); see also 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(i)(C)(1). 7 See 2015 Continuation Notice.

Where the respondent did not report entered value, we calculated the entered value in order to calculate the assessment rate. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. We intend to instruct CBP to take into account the ‘‘provisional measures deposit cap,’’ in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(d). The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in any 
written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication 
of this notice, unless otherwise extended.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where the respondent reported the 
entered value of their U.S. sales, we calculated importer-specific ad 
valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of 
the sales for which entered value was reported. Where the respondent 
did not report entered value, we calculated the entered value in order 
to calculate the assessment rate. Where either the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the 
meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero 
or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties. We intend to instruct CBP 
to take into account the ``provisional measures deposit cap,'' in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(d).
    The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.
    Commerce's ``reseller policy'' will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by TAK for which it did not know 
that the merchandise it sold to an intermediary

[[Page 37629]]

(e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the 
United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.\15\ The all-
others rate is 16.27 percent.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Korea and Taiwan: Antidumping Duty Orders, 83 FR 40752, 40753 
(August 16, 2018).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the 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 TAK will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final 
results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent 
and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), 
in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for companies not 
participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific cash deposit rate published for the most recently 
completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but 
the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit 
rate established for the most recently completed segment for the 
producer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other producers or exporters will continue to be 16.27 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.\17\ These 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

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 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 to Interested Parties

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

    Dated: June 17, 2020.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
