The merchandise subject to this order can be continuously shaped along any of its edges, ends, or faces. The percentage of composite materials contained in a wood moulding or millwork product is measured by length, except when the composite material is a coating or cladding. Wood mouldings and millwork products that are coated or clad, even along their entire length, with a composite material, but that are otherwise comprised of wood, LVL, or wood and composite materials (where the non-coating composite materials make up 50 percent or less of the total merchandise) are covered by the scope. The merchandise subject to this order consists of wood, LVL, bamboo, or a combination of wood and composite materials that is continuously shaped throughout its length (with the exception of any endwork/dados), profiled wood having a repetitive design in relief, similar milled wood architectural accessories, such as rosettes and plinth blocks, and finger-jointed or edge-glued moulding or millwork blanks (whether or not resawn). The scope includes continuously shaped wood in the forms of dowels, building components such as interior paneling and jamb parts, and door components such as rails, stiles, interior and exterior door frames or jambs (including split, flat, stop applied, single- or doublerabbeted), frame or jamb kits, and packaged door frame trim or casing sets, whether or not the door components are imported as part of a door kit or set. The covered products may be solid wood, laminated, finger-jointed, edge-glued, faceglued, or otherwise joined in the production or remanufacturing process and are covered by the scope whether imported raw, coated (e.g., gesso, polymer, or plastic), primed, painted, stained, wrapped (paper or vinyl overlay), any combination of the aforementioned surface coatings, treated, or which incorporate rot-resistant elements (whether wood or composite). The covered products are covered by the scope whether or not any surface coating(s) or covers obscure the grain, textures, or markings of the wood, whether or not they are ready for use or require final machining (e.g., endwork/dado, hinge/strike machining, weatherstrip or application thereof, mitre) or packaging.

Amendment to Final Determination A ministerial error is defined as an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.4 Pursuant to section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (f), Commerce is amending the Final Determination to reflect the correction of a ministerial error in the final estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for Fujian Yinfeng Imp & Exp Trading Co., Ltd./Fujian Province Youxi City Mangrove Wood Machining Co., Ltd. (Yinfeng/ Mangrove).5 In addition, because Yinfeng/Mangrove’s estimated weighted-average dumping margin is the basis for the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins for 42 nonselected separate rate companies, and its highest transaction margin is the basis for the estimated weighted-average dumping margin determined for the China-wide entity, we are also revising the estimated weighted-average dumping margins for the separate rate companies and the China-wide entity rate in the Final Determination.6 Antidumping Duty Order On February 10, 2021, in accordance On January 4, 2021, Commerce with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC published its affirmative Final Determination in the less-than-fair-value notified Commerce of its final determination in this investigation, in (LTFV) investigation of millwork products from China.1 On January 5, 3 See ITC Notification Letter, Investigations, Inv. 2021, Commerce received a ministerial Nos. 701–TA–636 and 731–TA–1470 (Final) error allegation with respect to its Final (February 10, 2021) (ITC Notification Letter).

with section 705(c)(2) of the Act, Commerce is issuing this 
countervailing duty order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 706(a) of the Act, Commerce 
will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon 
further instruction by Commerce, countervailing duties on unliquidated 
entries of millwork products from China entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after June 12, 2020, the date on which 
Commerce published its preliminary countervailing duty determination in 
the Federal Register,\4\ and before October 10, 2020, the effective 
date on which Commerce instructed CBP to discontinue the suspension of 
liquidation, in accordance with section 703(d) of the Act. Section 
703(d) of the Act states that the suspension of liquidation pursuant to 
an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for 
more than four months. Therefore, entries of millwork products from 
China made on or after October 10, 2020, and prior to the date of 
publication of the ITC's final determination in the Federal Register, 
are not subject to the assessment of countervailing duties due to

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 706 of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP 
to reinstitute the suspension of liquidation of millwork products from 
China, effective the date of publication of the ITC's notice of final 
determination in the Federal Register, and to assess, upon further 
instruction by Commerce pursuant to section 706(a)(1) of the Act, 
countervailing duties for each entry of the subject merchandise in an 
amount based on the net countervailable subsidy rates for the subject 
merchandise. On or after the date of publication of the ITC's final 
injury determination in the Federal Register, CBP must require, at the 
same time as importers would deposit estimated normal customs duties on 
this merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the subsidy rates noted 
below. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect 
until further notice. The all-others rate applies to all producers or 
exporters not specifically listed below.

pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in 
effect for more than four months. In the underlying investigation, 
Commerce published the Preliminary Determination on June 12, 2020.\6\ 
Therefore, entries of millwork products from China made on or after

assessment of countervailing duties due to Commerce's discontinuation

millwork products from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after October 10, 2020, the date on which the

Appendix

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to this order consists of wood mouldings 
and millwork products that are made of wood (regardless of wood 
species), bamboo, laminated veneer lumber (LVL), or of wood and 
composite materials (where the composite materials make up less than 
50 percent of the total merchandise), and which are continuously 
shaped wood or finger-jointed or edge-glued moulding or millwork 
blanks (whether or not resawn). The merchandise subject to this 
order can be continuously shaped along any of its edges, ends, or 
faces.
    The percentage of composite materials contained in a wood 
moulding or millwork product is measured by length, except when the 
composite material is a coating or cladding. Wood mouldings and 
millwork products that are coated or clad, even along their entire 
length, with a composite material, but that are otherwise comprised 
of wood, LVL, or wood and composite materials (where the non-coating 
composite materials make up 50 percent or less of the total 
merchandise) are covered by the scope.
    The merchandise subject to this order consists of wood, LVL, 
bamboo, or a combination of wood and composite materials that is 
continuously shaped throughout its length (with the exception of any 
endwork/dados), profiled wood having a repetitive design in relief, 
similar milled wood architectural accessories, such as rosettes and 
plinth blocks, and finger-jointed or edge-glued moulding or millwork 
blanks (whether or not resawn). The scope includes continuously 
shaped wood in the forms of dowels, building components such as 
interior paneling and jamb parts, and door components such as rails, 
stiles, interior and exterior door frames or jambs (including split, 
flat, stop applied, single- or double-rabbeted), frame or jamb kits, 
and packaged door frame trim or casing sets, whether or not the door 
components are imported as part of a door kit or set.
    The covered products may be solid wood, laminated, finger-
jointed, edge-glued, face-glued, or otherwise joined in the 
production or remanufacturing process and are covered by the scope 
whether imported raw, coated (e.g., gesso, polymer, or plastic), 
primed, painted, stained, wrapped (paper or vinyl overlay), any 
combination of the aforementioned surface coatings, treated, or 
which incorporate rot-resistant elements (whether wood or 
composite). The covered products are covered by the scope whether or 
not any surface coating(s) or covers obscure the grain, textures, or 
markings of the wood, whether or not they are ready for use or 
require final machining (e.g., endwork/dado, hinge/strike machining, 
weatherstrip or application thereof, mitre) or packaging.

products that have been further processed in a third country, 
including but not limited to trimming, cutting, notching, punching,
