SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) preliminarily determines AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:16 Jan 27, 2021 Jkt 253001 that certain companies made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value. The period of review (POR) is April 1, 2019, through March 31, 2020. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Applicable January 28, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On June 8, 2020, Commerce published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order drawn stainless steel sinks from the People’s Republic of China (China) covering the period April 1, 2019, through March 31, 2020, with respect to 29 companies.1 In August 2020, following a timely withdrawal request, we rescinded the review with respect to 23 of these companies.2 Therefore, the results of this review cover the six remaining companies. Scope of the Order The products covered by the order include drawn stainless steel sinks from the People’s Republic of China (China). Imports of subject merchandise are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7324.10.0000 and 7324.10.0010. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.3 Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Reviews, 85 FR 35068, 35071 (June 8, 2020). 2 See Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People’s Republic of China: Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2019– 2020, 85 FR 48152 (August 10, 2020). 3 For a complete description of the scope of the order, see Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of the 2019–2020 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People’s Republic of China,’’ issued concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).

A list of topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is provided as an appendix to this notice. China-Wide Entity In accordance with Commerce’s policy, the China-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity.4 Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under review, and the entity’s rate is not subject to change (i.e., 76.45 percent).5 Preliminary Results of Review Commerce finds that the two mandatory respondents, Jiangmen New Star Hi-Tech Enterprise Ltd. (New Star) and Zhuhai Kohler Kitchen & Bathroom Products Co., Ltd. (Kohler), have not established their eligibility for a separate rate and are considered to be part of the China-wide entity for these preliminary results. Additionally, because the following companies did not submit separate rate applications or certifications, we preliminarily determine they are ineligible for a separate rate and are part of the Chinawide entity: Guangdong G-Top Import & Export Co., Ltd. (G-Top); Jiangmen Pioneer Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Pioneer); and Zhongshan Superte Kitchenware Co., Ltd. (Superte). The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address what rate to apply to respondents who are not 4 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013). 5 The China-wide rate determined in the investigation was 76.53 percent. See Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People’s Republic of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 78 FR 21592 (April 11, 2013). This rate was adjusted for export subsidies and estimated domestic subsidy pass through to determine the cash deposit rate (76.45 percent) collected for companies in China-wide entity. See explanation in Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People’s Republic of China: Investigation, Final Determination, 78 FR 13019 (February 26, 2013). E:\FR\FM\28JAN1.SGM 28JAN1 7364 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 17 / Thursday, January 28, 2021 / Notices selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for non-selected respondents that are not examined individually in an administrative review. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act states that the all-others rate should be calculated by averaging the weightedaverage dumping margins for individually-examined respondents, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available. Section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act provides that where all rates are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available, Commerce may use ‘‘any reasonable method’’ for assigning a rate to non-examined respondents. However, for these preliminary results, we have not calculated any individual rates or assigned a companyspecific rate based on facts available. Therefore, consistent with our recent practice,6 we preliminary assigned to the non-individually examined company that demonstrated its eligibility for a separate rate the most recently assigned separate rate in this proceeding (i.e., 1.78 percent).7 Commerce preliminarily determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period April 1, 2019, through March 31, 2020: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Exporter KaiPing Dawn Plumbing Products Inc .................................... 1.78 6 See, e.g., Shenzhen Xinboda Industrial Co., Ltd., v.

For the company receiving a separate rate, we intend to assign an assessment rate of 1.78 percent, consistent with the methodology described above. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication). Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the company listed above that has a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that rate established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then a cash deposit rate of zero will be established for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be equal to the exporter-specific weighted-average dumping margin published of the most recently-completed segment of this proceeding; (3) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for China-wide entity, 76.45 percent; and (4) for all exporters of subject merchandise which are not located in China and which are not eligible for a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to Chinese exporter(s) that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. 16 See E:\FR\FM\28JAN1.SGM 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 28JAN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 17 / Thursday, January 28, 2021 / Notices Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management (OCM) and its regional, state, federal, and non-profit partners have worked closely with coastal managers across the country to increase the resilience of our coastal communities, economies, and ecosystems. Per the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), OCM provides financial and technical assistance to states and territories, including that which helps its customers (coastal managers) develop hazard mitigation and climate adaptation plans that include strategies for short-term responses to immediate threats (e.g., flooding, hurricanes) as well as long-term responses to gradual changes (e.g., sea level rise, drought). Services are provided through outreach, training, funding, resource, and tool development. Solutions to these resilience challenges are often complex and crosssectoral. Therefore, coastal decisionmakers regularly point to the need for more substantial, coordinated, sustained and creative funding opportunities to support these efforts. The results of an initial review of more than 200 resources that NOAA conducted in support of this effort, and informal conversations with NOAA customers and other stakeholders indicate that there is no comprehensive inventory or guide to understanding and selecting appropriate funding options or financing strategies. These findings have been further confirmed in subsequent informal discussions with coastal resilience and finance practitioners at national venues such as the National PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7365 Adaptation Forum in April 2019 and Social Coast Forum in February 2020. NOAA’s coastal management partners have requested support on this topic. The financing world is one that is constantly evolving new products and retiring others. The range of funding and financing options, from grants and lowinterest loans to more innovative private-public partnerships and emerging bonds, presents an everchanging and complex array of choices. In initial internal communications and informal discussions conducted between June 2018 and February 2020, NOAA customers indicated that these opportunities and mechanisms are not well understood, and are generally inaccessible to coastal managers, particularly in small to mid-sized communities, rural areas, and tribal communities. In many coastal communities, investment in mitigation and resilience measures remains either limited or reactive in response to a catastrophic event. While there are no data on the number of adaptations plans that have been implemented, lack of funding is a frequently cited barrier to implementation. At the same time, it has been estimated that investing in mitigation can save communities $6 for every $1 spent through mitigation grants from agencies including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Economic Development Administration (according to the National Institute of Building Sciences’ October 2018 report, Natural Hazard Mitigation Saves: Utilities and Transportation Infrastructure). Understanding the suite of funding and financing options available at the time resilience planning is undertaken, and then incorporating financial strategies into the planning process and recommendations, will help ensure that these plans are implemented. Section 310 of the Coastal Zone Management Act allows for technical assistance and management-oriented research to develop and implement state coastal management program amendments. NOAA is in the process of developing a needs assessment to define the types of funding, financing mechanisms, and associated resources that its state and local coastal manager customers need for coastal resilience activities and a market analysis of existing funding and financing programs and mechanisms. Simultaneously, NOAA is identifying existing resources and partnership opportunities for state and local coastal managers and NOAA’s non-profit, academic, and other customers.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 8, 2020, Commerce published a notice of initiation of an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order drawn stainless 
steel sinks from the People's Republic of China (China) covering the 
period April 1, 2019, through March 31, 2020, with respect to 29 
companies.\1\ In August 2020, following a timely withdrawal request, we 
rescinded the review with respect to 23 of these companies.\2\ 
Therefore, the results of this review cover the six remaining 
companies.

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

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order include drawn stainless steel 
sinks from the People's Republic of China (China). Imports of subject 
merchandise are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7324.10.0000 and 
7324.10.0010. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope 
of the order is dispositive.\3\

2019-2020 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Drawn Stainless 
Steel Sinks from the People's Republic of China,'' issued 
concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, 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 and the 
electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are

Decision Memorandum is provided as an appendix to this notice.

China-Wide Entity

    In accordance with Commerce's policy, the China-wide entity will 
not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce 
self-initiates, a review of the entity.\4\ Because no party requested a 
review of the China-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under 
review, and the entity's rate is not subject to change (i.e., 76.45 
percent).\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in 
Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty 
Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity 
in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013).
    \5\ The China-wide rate determined in the investigation was 
76.53 percent. See Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People's 
Republic of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than 
Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 78 FR 21592 (April 11, 2013). 
This rate was adjusted for export subsidies and estimated domestic 
subsidy pass through to determine the cash deposit rate (76.45 
percent) collected for companies in China-wide entity. See 
explanation in Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People's 
Republic of China: Investigation, Final Determination, 78 FR 13019 
(February 26, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of Review

    Commerce finds that the two mandatory respondents, Jiangmen New 
Star Hi-Tech Enterprise Ltd. (New Star) and Zhuhai Kohler Kitchen & 
Bathroom Products Co., Ltd. (Kohler), have not established their 
eligibility for a separate rate and are considered to be part of the 
China-wide entity for these preliminary results. Additionally, because 
the following companies did not submit separate rate applications or 
certifications, we preliminarily determine they are ineligible for a 
separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity: Guangdong G-Top 
Import & Export Co., Ltd. (G-Top); Jiangmen Pioneer Import & Export 
Co., Ltd. (Pioneer); and Zhongshan Superte Kitchenware Co., Ltd. 
(Superte).
    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address what rate to 
apply to respondents who are not

selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its 
examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) 
of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, 
which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an 
investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for non-selected 
respondents that are not examined individually in an administrative 
review. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act states that the all-others rate 
should be calculated by averaging the weighted-average dumping margins 
for individually-examined respondents, excluding rates that are zero, 
de minimis, or based entirely on facts available. Section 735(c)(5)(B) 
of the Act provides that where all rates are zero, de minimis, or based 
entirely on facts available, Commerce may use ``any reasonable method'' 
for assigning a rate to non-examined respondents.
    However, for these preliminary results, we have not calculated any 
individual rates or assigned a company-specific rate based on facts 
available. Therefore, consistent with our recent practice,\6\ we 
preliminary assigned to the non-individually examined company that 
demonstrated its eligibility for a separate rate the most recently 
assigned separate rate in this proceeding (i.e., 1.78 percent).\7\

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance completion of the administrative review, Commerce 
shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall 
assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\16\ For the final results, if we continue to treat the 
following companies as part of China-wide entity, we will instruct CBP 
to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 76.45 percent to all entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR that were produced and/or 
exported by those companies: G-Top; Kohler; New Star; Pioneer; and 
Superte. For the company receiving a separate rate, we intend to assign 
an assessment rate of 1.78 percent, consistent with the methodology 
described above.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier 
than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the 
U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will 
direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties 
to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 
90 days of publication).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the company 
listed above that has a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that rate established in the final results of this review (except, if 
the rate is zero or de minimis, then a cash deposit rate of zero will 
be established for that company); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that have 
separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be equal to the 
exporter-specific weighted-average dumping margin published of the most 
recently-completed segment of this proceeding; (3) for all Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for 
China-wide entity, 76.45 percent; and (4) for all exporters of subject 
merchandise which are not located in China and which are not eligible 
for a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable 
to Chinese exporter(s) that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 and/or countervailing duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(l) and 777(i)(l) of the Act.

    Dated: January 22, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
