Methodology jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Commerce is conducting 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.4 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 pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the 2018 Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of Forged Steel Fitting from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum). 3 See Forged Steel Fittings from the People’s Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 83 FR 60396 (November 26, 2018) (Order). 4 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:49 Mar 17, 2021 Jkt 253001 Final Results of Administrative Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated a final countervailable subsidy rate for BothWell, the sole mandatory respondent in this review. For the companies subject to this review which were not selected for individual examination, we used the subsidy rate calculated for Both-Well. We find the countervailable subsidy rates for the producers/exporters under review to be as follows: Producer/exporter Both-Well (Taizhou) Steel Fittings, Co., Ltd. ......................... Non-Selected Companies Under Review 5 .................................. Subsidy rate (percent) 25.90 25.90 Assessment Rates Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), Commerce will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, countervailing duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review, for the above-listed companies at the applicable ad valorem assessment rates listed. Consistent with its recent notice,6 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 Instructions In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce also intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties in the amounts shown for BothWell on shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review. For all non-reviewed firms, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at the most recent company-specific or allothers rate applicable to the company, as appropriate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Commerce individually examined Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited (Fine Furniture) and the collapsed entity Dalian Penghong Floor Products Co., Ltd./Dalian Shumaike Floor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (collectively, Dalian Penghong) as mandatory respondents in the third administrative review of the AD order on MLWF from China,1 covering the period of review from December 1, 2013, through November 30, 2014.2 As identified in the Final Results, the calculated margins for Fine furniture and Dalian Penghong were 17.37 percent and 0.00 percent, respectively.3 Commerce assigned Fine Furniture’s 17.37 percent margin to the companies eligible for a separate rate.4 Fine Furniture and certain separate rate companies (collectively, plaintiffs) challenged Commerce’s Final Results. The CIT sustained Commerce’s Final Results,5 and select plaintiffs appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals Federal Circuit (Federal Circuit).6 The Federal Circuit ordered that the case be stayed pending the outcome of Changzhou Hawd Flooring Co., v. United States, Appeal Nos. 2018–2335, –2337.7 Following the Federal Circuit’s final opinion in Changzhou Hawd that held that Fine Furniture was excluded from the Order,8 the Federal Circuit lifted the stay of the appeal of the Final Results and remanded the case to the CIT to oversee Commerce’s recalculation of the margin for the companies eligible for a separate rate.9 Commerce then requested a voluntary remand from the 1 See Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People’s Republic of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 76 FR 76690 (December 8, 2011) (Order). 2 See Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2013– 2014, 81 FR 46899 (July 19, 2016), as amended in Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Correction to the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 81 FR 53120 (August 11, 2016) (collectively, Final Results). 3 See Final Results, 81 FR at 46901. 4 Id. 5 See Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited, et al., v.

The CIT’s March 3, 2021, judgment constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with Commerce’s Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken.

attached to this notice at Appendix I. The Issues and Decision 
Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via 
Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the case and rebuttal briefs and the 
evidence on the record, we made no changes to the Preliminary Results.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting 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.\4\ 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 pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Administrative Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated a final 
countervailable subsidy rate for Both-Well, the sole mandatory 
respondent in this review. For the companies subject to this review 
which were not selected for individual examination, we used the subsidy 
rate calculated for Both-Well. We find the countervailable subsidy 
rates for the producers/exporters under review to be as follows:

                                                                Subsidy

Assessment Rates
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Appendix II.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), Commerce will determine, and U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, countervailing duties 
on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with 
the final results of this review, for the above-listed companies at the 
applicable ad valorem assessment rates listed. Consistent with its 
recent notice,\6\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Instructions

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce also 
intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated 
countervailing duties in the amounts shown for Both-Well on shipments 
of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of 
this administrative review. For all non-reviewed firms, we will 
instruct CBP to continue to collect cash deposits of estimated 
countervailing duties at the most recent company-specific or all-others 
rate applicable to the company, as appropriate. These cash deposit 
requirements, effective upon publication of these final results, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written
