Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 220 / Friday, November 13, 2020 / Notices Ricoh already has authority to produce copiers, printers, toner cartridges, related toner products, thermal paper and thermal film products within Subzone 26H. The current request would add foreign-status materials to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials/components described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Ricoh from customs duty payments on the foreign-status materials used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials noted below, Ricoh would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to copiers, printers, toner cartridges, related toner products, thermal paper and thermal film (duty rate ranges between duty-free and 5.8%). Ricoh would be able to avoid duty on foreignstatus materials which become scrap/ waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The materials sourced from abroad include titanium dioxide mixture (titanium dioxide, methyltrimethoxy silane, and trifluoropropyltrimethoxysilane), silica mixture (silica is over 91% of mixture), polycarbonate/acrylonitrile butadiene styrene resin, and calcium oxide mixture (calcium oxide is over 85% of mixture) (duty rate ranges between 5% and 6%). The request indicates that certain materials are subject to duties under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of origin. The applicable Section 301 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is December 23, 2020. A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s website, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.

For a full description of the scope of the order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Final Results of the Administrative Review As a result of this administrative review, we determine that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for the POR: Producer/exporter Estimated weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Sucroal S.A ................................. 4.59 Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, 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 Sucroal, because its weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), Commerce has calculated importer-specific AD assessment rates. We calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem AD assessment rates by dividing the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales by the total entered value of the same sales for that importer, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    As a result of this administrative review, we determine that the 
following weighted-average dumping margin exists for the POR:

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

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sucroal S.A................................................        4.59

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, 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 Sucroal, because its 
weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less 
than 0.5 percent), Commerce has calculated importer-specific AD 
assessment rates. We calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad 
valorem AD assessment rates by dividing the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's examined sales by the total entered value 
of the same sales for that importer, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).
    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Sucroal for which it did not know its merchandise

[[Page 72622]]

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 involved in the transaction. We intend to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
the final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of this administrative 
review for all shipments of citric acid from Colombia entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication of the final results, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) 
of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Sucroal will be equal to the 
dumping margin established in the final results of this review; (2) for 
merchandise exported by producers and/or exporters not covered in this 
administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate 
published for the most recently-completed segment of this proceeding in 
which the producer and/or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
less-than-fair-value investigation but the producer is, then the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of the proceeding for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 28.48 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the original investigation.\2\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final 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 Orders

    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 APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), 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 
the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
