The signed and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we found no evidence calling into question the no-shipment claims of Jiangsu Dingsheng New Materials Joint-Stock Co., Ltd. No parties commented on this preliminary decision. For the final results of this review, we continue to find that Jiangsu Dingsheng New Materials Joint-Stock Co., Ltd. had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties, Commerce has made two changes to the Preliminary Results. First, for Zhongji, we have revised our calculation of ash/dross to account for the metal content of the ash/dross. Second, we have revised our calculation of an adverse inference with regard to Xiashun. For a more detailed discussion of these changes, see the Final Analysis Memoranda for Zhongji and Xiashun.7 Separate Rate In the Preliminary Results, we found that information placed on the record by Zhongji; Xiashun; Alcha International Holdings Limited; Dingsheng Aluminum Industries Hong Kong Trading Co.; Granges Aluminum (Shanghai) Co., Ltd; Hangzhou Dingsheng Import & Export Co., Ltd.; Hunan Suntown Marketing Limited; Jiangsu Alcha Aluminum Co., Ltd.; Shanghai Shenyan Packaging Materials 7 See Memorandum, ‘‘Final Analysis Memorandum for Zhongji,’’ dated concurrently with this memorandum; see also Memorandum, ‘‘Final Analysis Memorandum for Xiashun,’’ dated concurrently with this memorandum. E:\FR\FM\25FEN1.SGM 25FEN1 11500 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 36 / Thursday, February 25, 2021 / Notices Co.; SNTO International Trade Limited; and Suzhou Manakin Aluminum Processing Technology Co., Ltd. demonstrates that these entities are entitled to separate rate status.8 We received no comments or arguments since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provide a basis for reconsideration of these determinations. Therefore, for these final results, we continue to find that the companies listed in the table for the ‘‘final results of the review’’ section of this notice are eligible for a separate rate. For a more detailed discussion of this issue, see Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Results of the Review Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period November 2, 2017, through March 31, 2019: Weightedaverage margin (percent) Exporter Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Co., (HK) Ltd./Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Stock Co., Ltd./Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Co., Ltd./Jiangsu Huafeng Aluminum Industry Co., Ltd ............................................................................

Shanghai Shenyan Packaging Materials Co ................................................................................................................................... SNTO International Trade Limited ................................................................................................................................................... Suzhou Manakin Aluminum Processing Technology Co., Ltd ........................................................................................................ For the respondents which are eligible for a separate rate, but were not selected for individual examination in this administrative review, we have assigned a margin based on the average of the weighted average dumping margins calculated for Zhongji and Xiashun, consistent with section 735(c)(3)(A) of the Act. China-Wide Entity Commerce’s policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide entity applies to this administrative review.9 Under this policy, the Chinawide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity. 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 (i.e., 105.80 percent) is not subject to change.10 Assessment Rates Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated importer-specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. We calculated importer (or customer)specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review on a 8 See Preliminary Results and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 7–10. 9 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Feb 24, 2021 Jkt 253001 23.62 47.57 35.60 35.60 35.60 35.60 35.60 35.60 35.60 35.60 35.60 per-unit (i.e., per-kilogram) basis. Specifically, we calculated a per-unit assessment rate by aggregating the antidumping duties due for all U.S. sales to that importer (or customer) and divided this amount by the total quantity sold to that importer (or customer) during the POR. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculate importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered value. If an importer (or customer)-specific assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate that importer’s (or customer’s) entries of subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties. Consistent with its recent notice,11 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). publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Xiashun and Zhongji and for each of the 10 companies identified above as eligible for a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this review; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that have received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific cash deposit rate published for the completed segment of the most recent period; (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 the China-wide entity; and (4) for all nonChinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied that nonChinese exporter. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013). 10 See Order, 83 FR at 17363. 11 See Notice of Discontinuation of Policy to Issue Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 15, 2021).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On December 28, 2015, Commerce published in the Federal Register the CVD Order on melamine from China.1 On November 3, 2020, Commerce published the notice of initiation of the first sunset review of the Order, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).2 On November 10, 2020, Commerce received a notice of intent to participate from Cornerstone Chemical Company (Cornerstone, or domestic interested party), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i).3 Cornerstone claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a domestic producer engaged in the production of melamine in the United States. On November 25, 2020, Commerce received a substantive response from the domestic interested party within the 30day deadline specified in 19 CFR 1 See Melamine from the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Orders, 80 FR 80751 (December 28, 2015) (Order). 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 85 FR 69585 (November 3, 2020). 3 See Cornerstone’s Letter, ‘‘Five-Year (‘Sunset’) Review Of Countervailing Duty Order On Melamine From the People’s Republic Of China: Domestic Interested Party Notice of Intent to Participate,’’ dated November 10, 2020.

On December 23, 2020, Commerce notified the U.S. International Trade Commission that it did not receive an adequate substantive response from respondent interested parties.5 As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of this Order. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the Order is melamine (Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry number 108–78– 01, molecular formula C3H6N6).6 Melamine is a crystalline powder or granule typically (but not exclusively) used to manufacture melamine formaldehyde resins. All melamine is covered by the scope of this order irrespective of purity, particle size, or physical form. Melamine that has been blended with other products is included within this scope when such blends include constituent parts that have been intermingled, but that have not been chemically reacted with each other to produce a different product. For such blends, only the melamine component of the mixture is covered by the scope of this order. Melamine that is otherwise subject to this order is not excluded when commingled with melamine from sources not subject to this order. Only the subject component of such commingled products is covered by the scope of this order. The subject merchandise is provided for in subheading 2933.61.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading and CAS registry number are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in this sunset review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via the 4 See Cornerstone’s Letter, ‘‘Five-Year (‘Sunset’) Review Of Countervailing Duty Order On Melamine From The People’s Republic Of China: Domestic Interested Party Substantive Response,’’ dated November 25, 2020. 5 See Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘Sunset Reviews for November 2020,’’ dated December 23, 2020. 6 Melamine is also known as 2,4,6-triamino-striazine; l,3,5-Triazine-2,4,6-triamine; Cyanurotriamide; Cyanurotriamine; Cyanuramide; and by various brand names.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Commerce published the Preliminary Results of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on June 24, 2020.\1\ The 
administrative review covers two mandatory respondents: (1) Jiangsu 
Zhongji Lamination Materials Co., (HK) Ltd.; Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination 
Materials Stock Co., Ltd.; Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Co., 
Ltd.; and Jiangsu Huafeng Aluminum Industry Co., Ltd. (collectively, 
Zhongji),\2\ and (2) Xiamen Xiashun Aluminum Foil Co., Ltd. (Xiashun).

Review, Preliminary Determination of No Shipments, and Partial 
Rescission; 2017-2019, 85 FR 37829 (June 24, 2020) (Preliminary 
Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
    \2\ In the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, we 
collapsed Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Co., (HK) Ltd.; 
Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Stock Co., Ltd.; Jiangsu 
Zhongji Lamination Materials Co., Ltd.; and Jiangsu Huafeng Aluminum 
Industry Co., Ltd. as a single entity. See Antidumping Duty

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in interested parties' briefs are addressed in 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by 
interested parties and to which we responded 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/index.html. The signed and the 
electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical 
in content.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found no evidence calling into 
question the no-shipment claims of Jiangsu Dingsheng New Materials 
Joint-Stock Co., Ltd. No parties commented on this preliminary 
decision. For the final results of this review, we continue to find 
that Jiangsu Dingsheng New Materials Joint-Stock Co., Ltd. had no 
shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties, Commerce has made two changes to the Preliminary 
Results. First, for Zhongji, we have revised our calculation of ash/
dross to account for the metal content of the ash/dross. Second, we 
have revised our calculation of an adverse inference with regard to 
Xiashun. For a more detailed discussion of these changes, see the Final 
Analysis Memoranda for Zhongji and Xiashun.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Memorandum, ``Final Analysis Memorandum for Zhongji,'' 
dated concurrently with this memorandum; see also Memorandum, 
``Final Analysis Memorandum for Xiashun,'' dated concurrently with 
this memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that information placed on the 
record by Zhongji; Xiashun; Alcha International Holdings Limited; 
Dingsheng Aluminum Industries Hong Kong Trading Co.; Granges Aluminum 
(Shanghai) Co., Ltd; Hangzhou Dingsheng Import & Export Co., Ltd.;

Co.; SNTO International Trade Limited; and Suzhou Manakin Aluminum 
Processing Technology Co., Ltd. demonstrates that these entities are 
entitled to separate rate status.\8\ We received no comments or 
arguments since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provide a 
basis for reconsideration of these determinations. Therefore, for these 
final results, we continue to find that the companies listed in the 
table for the ``final results of the review'' section of this notice 
are eligible for a separate rate. For a more detailed discussion of 
this issue, see Issues and Decision Memorandum.

with section 735(c)(3)(A) of the Act.

China-Wide Entity

    Commerce's policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide 
entity applies to this administrative review.\9\ Under this policy, the 
China-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically 
requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity. 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 (i.e., 105.80 
percent) is not subject to change.\10\

    \9\ 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).
    \10\ See Order, 83 FR at 17363.

Assessment Rates

    Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of 
subject merchandise in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.212(b). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have 
calculated importer-specific assessment rates for merchandise subject 
to this review. We calculated importer (or customer)-specific 
assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review on a per-unit 
(i.e., per-kilogram) basis. Specifically, we calculated a per-unit 
assessment rate by aggregating the antidumping duties due for all U.S. 
sales to that importer (or customer) and divided this amount by the 
total quantity sold to that importer (or customer) during the POR. To 
determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in 
accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we 
calculate importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem ratios based on 
the estimated entered value. If an importer (or customer)-specific 
assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), Commerce 
will instruct CBP to liquidate that importer's (or customer's) entries 
of subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties.
    Consistent with its recent notice,\11\ 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).

Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 
15, 2021).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Xiashun and 
Zhongji and for each of the 10 companies identified above as eligible 
for a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of 
this review; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and 
non-Chinese exporters not listed above that have received a separate 
rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the existing exporter-specific cash deposit rate 
published for the completed segment of the most recent period; (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 the China-wide entity; and (4) for all non-Chinese exporters 
of subject merchandise which have not received their own separate rate, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese 
exporter that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their

[[Page 11501]]

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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent assessment of 
double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 
destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective 
order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and 
terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5) and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: February 19, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
