Please clearly indicate which question(s) you address in your response and any evidence to support assertions, where practicable. Round 1 Central Questions— 1. What are the main challenges faced by national, state/provincial, or local governments that are trying to build a basis for evidence-based policy? Briefly describe the bottlenecks and pain-points they face in the evidence-based decision-making process. 2. What are examples of high-impact data uses for evidence-based policy making that successfully effected change, reduced costs, or improved the welfare of citizens? 3. Which frameworks, policies, practices, or methods show promise in overcoming challenges experienced by governments in their evidence building? 4. The Commission on EvidenceBased Policymaking (See: www.cep.gov) recommended the creation of a National Secure Data Service (See Commission Report at www.cep.gov). Do you agree with this recommendation, and if so, what should be the essential features of a National Secure Data Service? 5. How can federal agencies protect individual and organizational privacy when using data for evidence building? Recommend specific actions the Office of Management and Budget and/or other federal agencies can take when using data for evidence building, as well as suggested changes to federal laws, policies, and procedures.

If created, how should a data service be structured to best facilitate (1) research and development of secure data access and confidentiality technologies and methods, (2) and agency adoption of those technologies and techniques? 7. Government agencies have argued that secure data access has value because it (1) improves service delivery, (2) improves efficiency (lowers costs), (3) produces metrics for performance PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 measurement, and (4) produces new learnings/insights from the data. Which of these propositions do you agree holds value and why? Do you have examples that demonstrate these benefits? Do you have other examples of the value of secure data access? Data Services to Federal, State, Local Agencies and the Public— 8. What are the most pressing data needs of state and local decision makers and how would making data accessible from federal agencies help meet those needs? To share data, what guarantees do data owners (or data controllers) need regarding privacy, data stewardship, and retention? 9. What are the key problems and use cases where collaborative work between federal, state, and local authorities’ data analysis can inform decisions? What are key decision support tools? How would greater communication about data and tools benefit expanded evidence building? Infrastructure for Meeting Public and Evidence Building Needs— 10. What basic public data services are essential for a data service to address existing capacity gaps and needs? What infrastructure or incentives can the federal government create that locals and states cannot? Dated: December 9, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Background On September 28, 2006, Commerce published the Order in the Federal Register.1 On November 12, 2019, pursuant to section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce initiated an administrative review of the Order.2 On April 24, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in administrative reviews by 50 days.3 On June 11, 2020, we extended the deadline for the preliminary results to November 18, 2020.4 On July 21, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in administrative reviews by an additional 60 days.5 The deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now January 19, 2021. Commerce initiated this administrative review covering the following 13 companies: Cellpage Ventures Private Limited (Cellpage); Goldenpalm Manufacturers PVT Limited (Goldenpalm); Kokuyo Riddhi Paper Products Pvt. Ltd. (Kokuyo); Lodha Offset Limited (Lodha); Lotus Global Private Limited (Lotus Global); Magic International Pvt. Ltd. (Magic); Marisa International (Marisa); Navneet; Pioneer Stationery Pvt. Ltd.

The other 11 companies were not selected for individual examination and remain subject to this administrative review. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the Order is certain lined paper products. The merchandise subject to this order is currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 4811.90.9035, 4811.90.9080, 4820.30.0040, 4810.22.5044, 4811.90.9050, 4811.90.9090, 4820.10.2010, 4820.10.2020, 4820.10.2030, 4820.10.2040, 4820.10.2050, 4820.10.2060, and 4820.10.4000. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description remains dispositive. A full description of the scope of the Order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.7 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments On November 19 and November 26, 2019, Lodha and Marisa, respectively, submitted responses to Commerce’s quantity and value questionnaire which indicated that the companies had no exports or sales of subject merchandise into the United States during the POR.8 To confirm Lodha and Marisa’s noshipment claims, on December 6, 2019, Commerce issued a no-shipment inquiry to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) concerning the two companies.9 CBP reported that it had no information to contradict Marisa’s no shipments claim during the POR, but it found certain inconsistencies with respect to Lodha’s no shipment claim.10 Given that Marisa reported that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, and there is no information calling Marisa’s claim into question, we preliminarily determine that Marisa did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. Consistent with Commerce’s practice, we will not 7 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Lined Paper Products from India; 2018–2019,’’ dated concurrently and hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 8 See Lodha’s Letter, ‘‘Response to Quantity & Value Questionnaire,’’ dated November 19, 2019; see also Marisa’s Letter, ‘‘Certain Lined Paper Products from India: Marisa International (‘Marisa’) No export or sales of subject merchandise,’’ dated November 26, 2019. 9 See Memorandum, ‘‘No Shipment Inquiry,’’ dated December 10, 2019. 10 See Memorandum, ‘‘Request for Entry Summary,’’ dated January 27, 2020 at Attachment.

Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Act. Export price is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our preliminary results, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary 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). ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at https://enforcement.trade.gov/ frn/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an Appendix to this notice. Rate for Non-Selected Respondents The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the 11 Commerce determined not to rescind a review with respect to exporters that demonstrate that they had no knowledge of sales through resellers to the United States because we find it appropriate to instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the allothers rate applicable to the proceeding. Further, Commerce explained that it is more consistent with the Automatic Assessment Clarification not to rescind a review in part under these circumstances but rather to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review. See, e.g., Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Review, Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2012–2013, 79 FR 15951, 15952 (March 24, 2014), unchanged in Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Final Determination of No Shipments, and Partial Rescission of Review; 2012–2013, 79 FR 51306, 51307 (August 28, 2014) at 6–7 (citing Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Automatic Assessment Clarification)). E:\FR\FM\19JAN1.SGM 19JAN1 5134 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 11 / Tuesday, January 19, 2021 / Notices Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ‘‘an amount equal to the weightedaverage of the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely.’’ In this review, we have preliminarily calculated weighted-average dumping margins for Navneet and Super Impex that are zero. For the companies that were not selected for individual review, we preliminarily assigned a rate based on the rates for the respondents that were selected for individual review, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.12 In accordance with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit’s decision in Albemarle Corp. v. United States, we are applying to the ten companies that had reviewable transactions during the POR the zero percent rates calculated for Navneet and Super Impex.13 These are the only rates determined in this review for individual respondents and, thus, should be applied to the ten firms not selected for individual review under section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily find that the following weighted-average dumping margins existed for the period September 1, 2018 through August 31, 2019.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the Order is certain lined paper 
products. The merchandise subject to this order is currently classified 
under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) subheadings: 4811.90.9035, 4811.90.9080, 4820.30.0040, 
4810.22.5044, 4811.90.9050, 4811.90.9090, 4820.10.2010, 4820.10.2020,

4820.10.4000. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience 
and customs purposes, the written product description remains 
dispositive. A full description of the scope of the Order is contained 
in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Lined 
Paper Products from India; 2018-2019,'' dated concurrently and 
hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On November 19 and November 26, 2019, Lodha and Marisa, 
respectively, submitted responses to Commerce's quantity and value 
questionnaire which indicated that the companies had no exports or 
sales of subject merchandise into the United States during the POR.\8\ 
To confirm Lodha and Marisa's no-shipment claims, on December 6, 2019, 
Commerce issued a no-shipment inquiry to U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) concerning the two companies.\9\ CBP reported that it 
had no information to contradict Marisa's no shipments claim during the 
POR, but it found certain inconsistencies with respect to Lodha's no 
shipment claim.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Lodha's Letter, ``Response to Quantity & Value 
Questionnaire,'' dated November 19, 2019; see also Marisa's Letter, 
``Certain Lined Paper Products from India: Marisa International 
(`Marisa') No export or sales of subject merchandise,'' dated 
November 26, 2019.
    \9\ See Memorandum, ``No Shipment Inquiry,'' dated December 10, 
2019.
    \10\ See Memorandum, ``Request for Entry Summary,'' dated 
January 27, 2020 at Attachment.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Given that Marisa reported that it made no shipments of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR, and there is no 
information calling Marisa's claim into question, we preliminarily 
determine that Marisa did not have any reviewable transactions during 
the POR. Consistent with Commerce's practice, we will not rescind the 
review with respect to Marisa but, rather, will complete the review and 
issue instructions to CBP based on the final results.\11\ Concerning 
Lodha, for these preliminary results, we have included it among the 
firms subject to the rate for non-selected respondents.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ Commerce determined not to rescind a review with respect to 
exporters that demonstrate that they had no knowledge of sales 
through resellers to the United States because we find it 
appropriate to instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the all-
others rate applicable to the proceeding. Further, Commerce 
explained that it is more consistent with the Automatic Assessment 
Clarification not to rescind a review in part under these 
circumstances but rather to complete the review and issue 
appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review. See, e.g., Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand;

Shipments; 2012-2013, 79 FR 15951, 15952 (March 24, 2014), unchanged

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

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Act. Export price is calculated in accordance with 
section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with 
section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology 
underlying our preliminary results, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum. The Preliminary 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). ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at https://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum 
and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content. A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is attached as an Appendix to this notice.

Rate for Non-Selected Respondents

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for 
individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an 
administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the

[[Page 5134]]

Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which 
provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market 
economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for 
companies which were not selected for individual examination in an 
administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-
others rate is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted-average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero 
or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely.''
    In this review, we have preliminarily calculated weighted-average 
dumping margins for Navneet and Super Impex that are zero. For the 
companies that were not selected for individual review, we 
preliminarily assigned a rate based on the rates for the respondents 
that were selected for individual review, excluding rates that are 
zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.\12\ In 
accordance with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit's 
decision in Albemarle Corp. v. United States, we are applying to the 
ten companies that had reviewable transactions during the POR the zero 
percent rates calculated for Navneet and Super Impex.\13\ These are the 
only rates determined in this review for individual respondents and, 
thus, should be applied to the ten firms not selected for individual 
review under section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.
    \13\ See Albemarle Corp. v. United States, 821 F.3d 1345 (Fed. 
Cir. 2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily find that the 
following weighted-average dumping margins existed for the period 
September 1, 2018 through August 31, 2019.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Weighted-
                                                                Average

                                                               (percent)

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered 
by this review. If the weighted-average dumping margin for Navneet or 
Super Impex is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we 
will calculate importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment 
rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for 
each importer's examined sales to the total entered value of those same 
sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\14\ If the weighted-
average dumping margin for the respondents listed above is zero or de 
minimis in the final results, or an importer-specific assessment rate 
is zero or de minimis in the final results, we will instruct CBP not to 
assess antidumping duties on any of their entries in accordance with 
the Final Modification for Reviews.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for 
Reviews).
    \15\ Id., 77 FR at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with Commerce's assessment practice, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Navneet or Super Impex 
for which it did not know that its merchandise was destined for the 
United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at 
the all-others rate of 3.91 percent, as established in the less-than-
fair-value investigation, if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\16\ For a full discussion of 
this practice, see Assessment Policy Notice.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See Order, 71 FR at 56952.
    \17\ See Automatic Assessment Clarification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review 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 rate for respondents 
noted above will be the rates established in the final results of this 
administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers 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; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a prior review, or the original 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 deposit rate for 
all other producers or exporters will continue to be 3.91 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the investigation. These cash 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 and/or countervailing 
duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review 
period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing 
duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 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, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: January 7, 2021.
