SUMMARY: On August 10, 2020, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on citric acid and certain citrate salts (citric acid) from Colombia. The review covers one mandatory respondent, Sucroal S.A. (Sucroal). The period of review (POR) is January 8, 2018 through June 30, 2019. For the final results of this review, we continue to find that Sucroal sold subject merchandise at less than normal value during the POR. DATES: Applicable November 13, 2020. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bharat Phuyal, AD/CVD Operations, Office III, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3992. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On August 10, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary Results of the administrative review of the AD order on citric acid from Colombia.1 The administrative review covers one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise, Sucroal. We gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. We received no comments. Hence, these final results are unchanged from the Preliminary Results. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order includes all grades and granulation sizes of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate in their 1 See Citric Acid and Certain Citrate Salts from Colombia: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2018–2019, 85 FR 51012 (August 19, 2020) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72621 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. 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, if included in a mixture or blend, 3824.99.9295 of the HTSUS. Blends that include citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate are classifiable under 3824.99.9295 of the HTSUS. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive. 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). For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Sucroal for which it did not know its merchandise E:\FR\FM\13NON1.SGM 13NON1
