Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 195 / Wednesday, October 7, 2020 / Notices significant ministerial error with respect to our preliminary critical circumstances determination. The period of investigation is July 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019. DATES: Applicable October 7, 2020. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Leo Ayala or Alex Cipolla, AD/CVD Operations, Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3945 or (202) 482–4956, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 19, 2020, Commerce published its Preliminary Determination.1 On August 19, 2020, we received ministerial error comments from Chongqing Zongshen General Power Machine Co., Ltd (Zongshen) alleging that Commerce made certain significant ministerial errors in the Preliminary Determination. No other party made an allegation of ministerial errors. On August 24, 2020, Briggs & Stratton Corporation provided reply comments to Zongshen’s allegations. After reviewing the allegation, we determine that the Preliminary Determination included a significant ministerial error with respect to our preliminary critical circumstances determination. Therefore, we are amending the Preliminary Determination to find that critical circumstances do not exist for Zongshen. Scope of the Investigation The products covered by this investigation are vertical shaft engines from China. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see the Preliminary Determination.2 Analysis of Significant Ministerial Error Allegation Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, and as explained further in the Ministerial Error Memorandum 3 issued 1 See Certain Vertical Shaft Engines Between 225cc and 999cc, and Parts Thereof, from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, Postponement of Final Determination, and Extension of Provisional Measures, 85 FR 51015 (August 19, 2020) (Preliminary Determination). 2 Id., 85 FR at 51017. 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Vertical Shaft Engines Between 225cc and 999cc, and Parts Thereof, from China: Allegation of Ministerial Errors in the Preliminary Determination,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (Ministerial Error Memorandum). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Oct 06, 2020 Jkt 253001 concurrently with this Notice, we determine that the Preliminary Determination contained an error with respect to our preliminary critical circumstances calculation. In particular, we found an unintentional error in our calculation under the statutory criteria involving massive imports over a relatively short period.4 In our corrected calculation of Zongshen’s massive import analysis, we found that imports based on Zongshen’s reported shipments of merchandise under consideration did not increase during the comparison period by more than 15 percent over its respective imports in the base period.5 Correction of this error results in a determination that Zongshen’s imports were not massive during the comparison period and changes the preliminary critical circumstances determination from affirmative to negative for Zongshen.6 Commerce considers this ministerial error to be significant warranting an amendment to our preliminary critical circumstances determination with respect to Zongshen. Commerce does not consider any of the other alleged ministerial errors to be ministerial in nature.7 Therefore, we amend our preliminary determination and find there were not massive imports for Zongshen, pursuant to section 733(e)(1)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206(c)(2)(i). Accordingly, we find that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to Zongshen. Suspension of Liquidation The collection of cash deposits and suspension of liquidation will be revised, in accordance with section 733(e) of the Act. We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of entries of subject merchandise, as described in Appendix I, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 19, 2020, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination. We will also instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the estimated preliminary antidumping duty rate reflected in the Preliminary Determination. This suspension of liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. Notification of U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) In accordance with section 733(f) of the Act, we will notify the ITC of our determination.

The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results In the Preliminary Results, we found that application of partial adverse facts available (AFA) was appropriate because we found that BlueScope had not acted to the best of its ability to supply Commerce with necessary information. For these final results, we are no longer applying partial AFA to BlueScope’s home market sales with incomplete product characteristics. We have also excluded from BlueScope’s U.S. sales database products that were re-exported because the first sale to an unaffiliated customer for these sales was to a customer in a third country. Finally, we made a minor change to the arm’slength test conducted for home market sales, using the consolidated customer code rather than the unconsolidated customer code. For a discussion of the above-referenced changes, see the ‘‘Changes Since the Preliminary Results’’ section of the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Results of the Review We are assigning the following dumping margin to the exporter/ producer listed below for the POR, October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018: Exporter/producer BlueScope Steel Ltd./BlueScope Steel (AIS) Pty Ltd./BlueScope Steel Distribution Pty Ltd ........ Weightaverage dumping margin (percent) 2.72 Disclosure We will disclose to interested parties the calculations performed in connection with these final results within five days of the publication of this notice, consistent with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. For BlueScope, because its weightedaverage dumping margin is not zero or PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), Commerce has calculated importerspecific antidumping duty assessment rates. Because BlueScope reported the entered value for all its U.S. sales, we calculated importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those sales. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review where an importer-specific assessment rate is not zero or de minimis. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis. Consistent with Commerce’s assessment practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by BlueScope, for which BlueScope did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.8 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) The cash deposit rates for the reviewed company will be the rate shown above; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exported not covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently-completed segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a previous review, or the original less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash 8 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Notification to Importers This notice serves as the only 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. Administrative Protective Order In accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), this notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under the APO, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation subject to sanction. 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).

Postponement of Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation.

Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On September 17, 2020, the petitioner 2 submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary CVD determination.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement to permit parties time to review information submitted by the Government of China and the mandatory respondents, which is currently due no later than October 13, 2020, ten days before the unextended preliminary determination.4 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner has stated the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determination, and Commerce finds no compelling reason to deny the request. Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, Commerce is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated, i.e., December 28, 2020.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that application of partial 
adverse facts available (AFA) was appropriate because we found that 
BlueScope had not acted to the best of its ability to supply Commerce 
with necessary information. For these final results, we are no longer 
applying partial AFA to BlueScope's home market sales with incomplete 
product characteristics. We have also excluded from BlueScope's U.S. 
sales database products that were re-exported because the first sale to 
an unaffiliated customer for these sales was to a customer in a third 
country. Finally, we made a minor change to the arm's-length test 
conducted for home market sales, using the consolidated customer code 
rather than the unconsolidated customer code. For a discussion of the 
above-referenced changes, see the ``Changes Since the Preliminary 
Results'' section of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of the Review

    We are assigning the following dumping margin to the exporter/
producer listed below for the POR, October 1, 2017 through September 
30, 2018:

Disclosure

    We will disclose to interested parties the calculations performed 
in connection with these final results within five days of the 
publication of this notice, consistent with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review.
    For BlueScope, because its weighted-average dumping margin is not 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), Commerce has 
calculated importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates. Because 
BlueScope reported the entered value for all its U.S. sales, we 
calculated importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the 
examined sales to the total entered value of those sales. We will 
instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review where an importer-specific assessment rate is 
not zero or de minimis. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any 
entries for which the importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis.
    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by BlueScope, for which 
BlueScope did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United 
States, 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.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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) The cash deposit rates for the reviewed company will be 
the rate shown above; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or 
exported not covered in this administrative review but covered in a 
prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue 
to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently-
completed segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm 
covered in this review, a previous review, or the original less-than-
fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, then the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as the only 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.

Administrative Protective Order

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), this notice also serves as 
a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) 
of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of 
proprietary information disclosed under the APO, which continues to 
govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation subject to sanction.

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). Note 
that Commerce has temporarily modified certain of its requirements for 
serving documents containing business proprietary information, until 
further notice.\10\
