Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review There are nine companies for which a review was requested, but which were not selected as mandatory respondents or found to be cross-owned with a mandatory respondent. For these nine companies, we applied the subsidy rate calculated for Wor-Biz, as the only rate calculated for a mandatory respondent that was above de minimis and not based entirely on facts available. This methodology for establishing the subsidy rate for the non-selected companies is consistent with our practice and with section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act. Final Results of Administrative Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated a countervailable subsidy rate for the mandatory respondent Wor-Biz. We determined the countervailable subsidy rate for Qinshui Shunshida Casting Co., Ltd. based entirely on AFA, in accordance with section 776 of the Act. We also assigned an individual estimated subsidy rate based on AFA to entries produced or exported by WorBiz’s unaffiliated supplier, Wuhu Best Machines Co., Ltd., in accordance with section 776 of the Act. Therefore, the only rate that is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts otherwise available is the rate calculated for WorBiz. Consequently, as discussed above, the rate calculated for Wor-Biz is also assigned as the rate for all other producers and exporters subject to this review but not selected for individual examination (i.e., non-selected companies). We find the countervailable subsidy rates for the mandatory and nonselected respondents under review to be as follows: 7 See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised by parties in the case and rebuttal briefs are 
addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues 
addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is provided in the 
appendix to this notice. 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). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and electronic versions of the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the case and rebuttal briefs, and the 
evidence on the record, Commerce made no changes to the preliminary 
results.

Methodology

    Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For each 
of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we find that there is a 
subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that gives 
rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is 
specific.\7\ The Issues and Decision Memorandum contains a full 
description of the methodology underlying Commerce's conclusions, 
including any determination that relied upon the use of adverse facts 
available (AFA) pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding 
financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    There are nine companies for which a review was requested, but 
which were not selected as mandatory respondents or found to be cross-
owned with a mandatory respondent. For these nine companies, we applied 
the subsidy rate calculated for Wor-Biz, as the only rate calculated 
for a mandatory respondent that was above de minimis and not based 
entirely on facts available. This methodology for establishing the 
subsidy rate for the non-selected companies is consistent with our 
practice and with section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

Final Results of Administrative Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated a 
countervailable subsidy rate for the mandatory respondent Wor-Biz. We 
determined the countervailable subsidy rate for Qinshui Shunshida 
Casting Co., Ltd. based entirely on AFA, in accordance with section 776 
of the Act. We also assigned an individual estimated subsidy rate based 
on AFA to entries produced or exported by Wor-Biz's unaffiliated 
supplier, Wuhu Best Machines Co., Ltd., in accordance with section 776 
of the Act. Therefore, the only rate that is not zero, de minimis, or 
based entirely on facts otherwise available is the rate calculated for 
Wor-Biz. Consequently, as discussed above, the rate calculated for Wor-
Biz is also assigned as the rate for all other producers and exporters 
subject to this review but not selected for individual examination 
(i.e., non-selected companies).
    We find the countervailable subsidy rates for the mandatory and 
non-selected respondents under review to be as follows:
