Download as PDF 15188 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 53 / Monday, March 22, 2021 / Notices Subject merchandise also includes chassis, whether finished or unfinished, entered with or for further assembly with components such as, but not limited to: Hub and drum assemblies, brake assemblies (either drum or disc), axles, brake chambers, suspensions and suspension components, wheel end components, landing gear legs, spoke or disc wheels, tires, brake control systems, electrical harnesses and lighting systems. Processing of finished and unfinished chassis and components such as trimming, cutting, grinding, notching, punching, drilling, painting, coating, staining, finishing, assembly, or any other processing either in the country of manufacture of the in-scope product or in a third country does not remove the product from the scope. Inclusion of other components not identified as comprising the finished or unfinished chassis does not remove the product from the scope. Individual components entered and sold by themselves are not subject to the investigation, but components entered with or for further assembly with a finished or unfinished chassis are subject merchandise. A finished chassis is ultimately comprised of several different types of subassemblies. Within each subassembly there are numerous components that comprise a given subassembly. This scope excludes dry van trailers, refrigerated van trailers and flatbed trailers. Dry van trailers are trailers with a wholly enclosed cargo space comprised of fixed sides, nose, floor and roof, with articulated panels (doors) across the rear and occasionally at selected places on the sides, with the cargo space being permanently incorporated in the trailer itself. Refrigerated van trailers are trailers with a wholly enclosed cargo space comprised of fixed sides, nose, floor and roof, with articulated panels (doors) across the rear and occasionally at selected places on the sides, with the cargo space being permanently incorporated in the trailer and being insulated, possessing specific thermal properties intended for use with selfcontained refrigeration systems. Flatbed (or platform) trailers consist of load-carrying main frames and a solid, flat or stepped loading deck or floor permanently incorporated with and supported by frame rails and cross members. The finished and unfinished chassis subject to this investigation are typically classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheadings: 8716.39.0090 and 8716.90.5060. Imports of finished and unfinished chassis may also enter under HTSUS subheading 8716.90.5010. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under investigation is dispositive. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Appendix II List of Topics Discussed in the Final Decision Memorandum I.

Verification Commerce was unable to conduct onsite verification of the information relied upon in making its final determination in this investigation. However, we took additional steps in lieu of an on-site verification to verify the information relied upon in making this final determination, in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).4 Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our analysis of the comments received and additional information obtained since our preliminary findings, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for Sanjiang Kai Yuan Co. Ltd (SKY) and Wuyi Xilinde Machinery Manufacture Co., Ltd. (Wuyi Xilinde) since the Preliminary Determination. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Separate Rate Companies No party commented on our preliminary separate rate determinations with respect to the mandatory respondents and the nonindividually examined companies; thus, we find no basis to reconsider our preliminary determinations with respect to separate rate status, and we have continued to grant these companies separate rates in this final determination. China-Wide Entity Rate and the Use of Adverse Facts Available Commerce continues to find that the use of facts available is warranted in determining the rate of the China-wide entity, pursuant to sections 776(a)(1) and (a)(2)(A)-(C) of the Act. As discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, Commerce finds that the Combination Rates Consistent with the Preliminary Determination, Commerce calculated exporter/producer combination rates for the respondents that are eligible for a separate rate in this investigation. Policy Bulletin 05.1 describes this practice.5 Final Determination The estimated weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: Estimated weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Cash deposit rate (adjusted for subsidy offsets) (percent) Exporter Producer Sanjiang Kai Yuan Co.

For the final determination, as AFA, we are assigning the China-wide entity the highest calculated individual dumping margin calculated for SKY, 112.21 percent. Because this constitutes primary information, the statutory corroboration requirement in section 776(c) of the Act does not apply. 4 See Commerce’s Letters, ‘‘Non-Refillable Steel Cylinders from China: Verification Questionnaire,’’ dated December 1, 2020; see also SKY’s Letter, ‘‘Certain Non-Refillable Steel Cylinders from China; A–570–126; Response to Questionnaire Issued in Lieu of Verification,’’ dated December 8, 2020; and Wuyi Xilinde’s Letter, ‘‘Certain Non-Refillable Steel VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:46 Mar 19, 2021 Jkt 253001 Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we intend to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of non-refillable cylinders from China, as described in the appendix to this notice, which were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after October 30, 2020, the date of publication of the Preliminary Cylinders from the People’s Republic of China: Submission of uyi Xilinde Machinery Manufacture Co., Ltd.’s Verification Response,’’ dated December 8, 2020. 5 See Enforcement and Compliance’s Policy Bulletin No. 05.1, regarding, ‘‘Separate-Rates PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Determination of this investigation in the Federal Register. Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act, upon the publication of this notice, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the weighted-average amount by which the normal value exceeds U.S. price as follows: (1) The cash deposit rate for the exporter/producer combinations listed in the table above will be the rate identified in the table; (2) for all combinations of Chinese exporters/ Practice and Application of Combination Rates in Antidumping Investigations involving Non-Market Economy Countries,’’ (April 5, 2005) (Policy Bulletin 05.1), available on Commerce’s website at https://enforcement.trade.gov/policy/bull05-1.pdf. E:\FR\FM\22MRN1.SGM 22MRN1 15190 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 53 / Monday, March 22, 2021 / Notices producers of subject merchandise that have not received their own separate rate above, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the China-wide entity; and (3) for all nonChinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own separate rate above, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate applicable to the Chinese exporter/ producer combination that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These suspension of liquidation instructions will remain in effect until further notice. To determine the cash deposit rate, Commerce normally adjusts the estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the amount of domestic subsidy pass-through and export subsidies determined in a companion countervailing duty (CVD) proceeding when CVD provisional measures are in effect. Accordingly, where Commerce makes an affirmative determination for domestic subsidy pass-through or export subsidies, Commerce offsets the calculated estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the appropriate rates. Commerce continues to find that SKY and all non-individually-examined companies found eligible for a separate rate qualify for a double-remedy adjustment. Further, we have continued to adjust the cash deposit rates for SKY, Wuyi Xilinde, all non-individuallyexamined separate rate companies, and the China-wide entity for export subsidies in the companion CVD investigation by the appropriate export subsidy rates 6 as indicated in the above chart. However, suspension of liquidation according to provisional measures in the companion CVD case has been discontinued effective December 26, 2020; therefore, we are not instructing CBP to collect cash deposits based upon the adjusted estimated weighted-average dumping margin for those export subsidies and double remedy adjustment at this time. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the International Trade Commission (ITC) of the final affirmative determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this proceeding is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘Non-Refillable Steel Cylinders from the People’s Republic of China: Double Remedies and Export Subsidy Offset Calculation,’’ dated concurrently with this notice.

If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will be terminated, and all cash deposits will be refunded. If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury does exist, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of liquidation.

Verification

    Commerce was unable to conduct on-site verification of the 
information relied upon in making its final determination in this 
investigation. However, we took additional steps in lieu of an on-site 
verification to verify the information relied upon in making this final 
determination, in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act).\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Commerce's Letters, ``Non-Refillable Steel Cylinders 
from China: Verification Questionnaire,'' dated December 1, 2020; 
see also SKY's Letter, ``Certain Non-Refillable Steel Cylinders from 
China; A-570-126; Response to Questionnaire Issued in Lieu of 
Verification,'' dated December 8, 2020; and Wuyi Xilinde's Letter, 
``Certain Non-Refillable Steel Cylinders from the People's Republic 
of China: Submission of uyi Xilinde Machinery Manufacture Co., 
Ltd.'s Verification Response,'' dated December 8, 2020.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received and additional 
information obtained since our preliminary findings, we made certain 
changes to the margin calculations for Sanjiang Kai Yuan Co. Ltd (SKY) 
and Wuyi Xilinde Machinery Manufacture Co., Ltd. (Wuyi Xilinde) since 
the Preliminary Determination. For a discussion of these changes, see 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Separate Rate Companies

    No party commented on our preliminary separate rate determinations 
with respect to the mandatory respondents and the non-individually 
examined companies; thus, we find no basis to reconsider our 
preliminary determinations with respect to separate rate status, and we 
have continued to grant these companies separate rates in this final 
determination.

China-Wide Entity Rate and the Use of Adverse Facts Available

    Commerce continues to find that the use of facts available is 
warranted in determining the rate of the China-wide entity, pursuant to 
sections 776(a)(1) and (a)(2)(A)-(C) of the Act. As discussed in the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum, Commerce finds that the use of adverse 
facts available (AFA) is warranted with respect to the China-wide 
entity because the China-wide entity did not cooperate to the best of 
its ability to comply with our requests for information and, 
accordingly, we applied adverse inferences in selecting from the facts 
available, pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.308(a).
    For the final determination, as AFA, we are assigning the China-
wide entity the highest calculated individual dumping margin calculated 
for SKY, 112.21 percent. Because this constitutes primary information, 
the statutory corroboration requirement in section 776(c) of the Act 
does not apply.

Combination Rates

    Consistent with the Preliminary Determination, Commerce calculated 
exporter/producer combination rates for the respondents that are 
eligible for a separate rate in this investigation. Policy Bulletin 
05.1 describes this practice.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Enforcement and Compliance's Policy Bulletin No. 05.1, 
regarding, ``Separate-Rates Practice and Application of Combination 
Rates in Antidumping Investigations involving Non-Market Economy

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we intend to 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of non-refillable 
cylinders from China, as described in the appendix to this notice, 
which were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after October 30, 2020, the date of publication of the Preliminary 
Determination of this investigation in the Federal Register.
    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act, upon the 
publication of this notice, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to require 
a cash deposit equal to the weighted-average amount by which the normal 
value exceeds U.S. price as follows: (1) The cash deposit rate for the 
exporter/producer combinations listed in the table above will be the 
rate identified in the table; (2) for all combinations of Chinese 
exporters/

[[Page 15190]]

producers of subject merchandise that have not received their own 
separate rate above, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit 
rate established for the China-wide entity; and (3) for all non-Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
separate rate above, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit 
rate applicable to the Chinese exporter/producer combination that 
supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These suspension of liquidation 
instructions will remain in effect until further notice.
    To determine the cash deposit rate, Commerce normally adjusts the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the amount of domestic 
subsidy pass-through and export subsidies determined in a companion 
countervailing duty (CVD) proceeding when CVD provisional measures are 
in effect. Accordingly, where Commerce makes an affirmative 
determination for domestic subsidy pass-through or export subsidies, 
Commerce offsets the calculated estimated weighted-average dumping 
margin by the appropriate rates. Commerce continues to find that SKY 
and all non-individually-examined companies found eligible for a 
separate rate qualify for a double-remedy adjustment. Further, we have 
continued to adjust the cash deposit rates for SKY, Wuyi Xilinde, all 
non-individually-examined separate rate companies, and the China-wide 
entity for export subsidies in the companion CVD investigation by the 
appropriate export subsidy rates \6\ as indicated in the above chart. 
However, suspension of liquidation according to provisional measures in 
the companion CVD case has been discontinued effective December 26, 
2020; therefore, we are not instructing CBP to collect cash deposits 
based upon the adjusted estimated weighted-average dumping margin for 
those export subsidies and double remedy adjustment at this time.

People's Republic of China: Double Remedies and Export Subsidy 
Offset Calculation,'' dated concurrently with this notice.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
International Trade Commission (ITC) of the final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this 
proceeding is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the 
Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the 
domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or 
threatened with material injury, by reason of imports, or sales (or the 
likelihood of sales) for importation of non-refillable cylinders no 
later than 45 days after our final determination. If the ITC determines 
that material injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the 
proceeding will be terminated, and all cash deposits will be refunded. 
If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury 
does exist, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP 
to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on 
all imports of the subject merchandise, entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the 
suspension of liquidation.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely 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 the terms of an APO is a violation subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(c).

    Dated: March 15, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
