The period of investigation is July 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019. The final dumping margins of sales at LTFV are listed below in the ‘‘Final Determination’’ section of this notice.

SUMMARY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 27, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary Determination of sales at LTFV of R–32 from China,1 in which we also postponed the final determination to January 11, 2021. The petitioner in this investigation is Arkema Inc. The mandatory respondents in this investigation are Taizhou Qingsong Refrigerant New Material Co., Ltd. (Taizhou Qingsong) and Zibo Feiyuan Chemical Co., Ltd. (Zibo Feiyuan). A summary of the events that occurred since Commerce published the Preliminary Determination, as well as a full discussion of the issues raised by the parties for this final determination are discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.2 The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS).

Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in this investigation are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised is attached to this notice as Appendix II. Verification Commerce normally verifies information relied upon in making its final determination, pursuant to section 782(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). However, due to current travel restrictions in response to the global COVID–19 pandemic, Commerce was unable to conduct onsite verification in this investigation.3 Consistent with section 776(a)(2)(D) of the Act, Commerce relied on the information submitted on the record, which we used in making our Preliminary Determination, as facts available in making our final determination. Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our review and analysis of the comments received from parties, we made no changes to the antidumping duty margin calculations for Taizhou Qingsong and Zibo Feiyuan. China-Wide Entity and the Use of Adverse Facts Available We continue to find that the use of adverse facts available (AFA), pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, is warranted in determining the rate for the China-wide entity.4 In selecting the AFA rate for the China-wide entity, Commerce’s practice is to select a rate that is sufficiently adverse to ensure that the uncooperative party does not obtain a more favorable result by failing to cooperate than if it had fully cooperated.5 As AFA, we assigned the 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Cancelation of Verification and Briefing Schedule,’’ dated October 21, 2020. 4 The China-wide entity includes those companies who did not submit a separate rate application, and those companies Commerce determined were ineligible to receive a separate rate. 5 See, e.g., Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination: Purified Carboxymethyl Cellulose from Finland, 69 FR 77216 (December 27, 2004), unchanged in Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Purified E:\FR\FM\19JAN1.SGM 19JAN1

Partial Rescission of Review

administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of LWRPT from 
Mexico at a rate

[[Page 5136]]

equal to the cash deposit rate of estimated antidumping duties required 
at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, 
during the period August 1, 2019 through July 31, 2020, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice 
in the Federal Register.

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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to all parties subject 
to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to

violation.
