Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand From Italy: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, and Final Negative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 18505-18507 [2021-07366]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 67 / Friday, April 9, 2021 / Notices Background On July 12, 2017, and June 14, 2019, Commerce published in the Federal Register notices of the final results of the 2014–2016 and 2017–2018 administrative reviews, respectively, of the AD order on solar products from China.1 We incorrectly identified the cash deposit rate for the China-wide entity as 165.04 percent in the notice of final results for the 2014–2016 review and incorrectly identified the dumping margin and the cash deposit rate for the China-wide entity as 151.98 percent in the notice of final results for the 2017– 2018 review. The dumping margin and cash deposit rate applicable to the China-wide entity during the 2014–2016 and 2017–2018 periods of review did not change from those established in the less-than-fair value (LTFV) investigation and the AD order. In the LTFV investigation, Commerce established a 165.04 percent dumping margin for the China-wide entity which it adjusted for export subsidies and domestic subsidy pass-through to derive a cash deposit rate for the China-wide entity of 152.84 percent.2 We hereby notify the public that in these notices for the final results of administrative reviews we should have identified the dumping margin for the China-wide entity as 165.04 percent and the cash deposit rate for the Chinawide entity as 152.84 percent.3 We intend to notify U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) of this correction. Notification to Interested Parties This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. 1 See Certain Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final Determination of No Shipments; 2014–2016, 82 FR 32170 (July 12, 2017) and Certain Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017– 2018; 84 FR 27764 (June 14, 2019). 2 See Certain Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products From the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 79 FR 76970 (December 23, 2014); see also Certain Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products From the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order; and Amended Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Countervailing Duty Order, 80 FR 8592 (February 18, 2015)(Order). 3 See Order, 80 FR at 8595; see also instructions issued to CBP following publication of the Order, Message Number 5061301 (listing the China-wide entity’s cash deposit rate as 152.84 percent), dated 03/02/2015, publicly available at https:// aceservices.cbp.dhs.gov/adcvdweb/#.

Period of Investigation The period of investigation (POI) is April 1, 2019, through March 31, 2020. Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is PC strand from Italy. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see Appendix I. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case briefs and rebuttal briefs submitted by interested parties in this proceeding are discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by parties and responded to by Commerce in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this notice as Appendix II. Verification Commerce was unable to conduct onsite verification of the information relied upon in making its final determination in this investigation as provided for in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Accordingly, we took additional steps in lieu of an on-site verification and requested additional documentation and information.4 Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our analysis of the ILOV Response and the comments received, Determination in the Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand from Italy,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum). 3 See Issues and Decision Memorandum. 4 See Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘WBO Italcables Societa’ Cooperative Questionnaire in Lieu of Verification,’’ dated December 9, 2020; see also WBO’s Letter, ‘‘Questionnaire in Lieu of Verification Response,’’ dated December 17, 2020 (ILOV Response). E:\FR\FM\09APN1.SGM 09APN1 18506 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 67 / Friday, April 9, 2021 / Notices we made one change to the margin calculation for WBO since the Preliminary Determination. For a discussion of this change, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Negative Determination of Critical Circumstances Consistent with the Preliminary Determination,5 Commerce continues to determine that critical circumstances do not exist within the meaning of section 735(a)(3) of the Act. Use of Adverse Facts Available The mandatory respondent CB withdrew from participation in this investigation.6 Therefore, in the Preliminary Determination, pursuant to sections 776(a) and 776(b) of the Act, we assigned to CB an estimated weightedaverage dumping margin based on adverse facts available (AFA). No parties filed comments concerning the Preliminary Determination with respect to CB, and there is no new information on the record that would cause us to revisit the Preliminary Determination. Accordingly, we continue to find that the application of AFA pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act is warranted with respect to CB. Consistent with the Preliminary Determination, Commerce has assigned to CB the highest individual margin calculated for WBO, which is 19.26 percent. Because this rate is not secondary information, but rather is based on information obtained in the course of the investigation, Commerce need not corroborate this rate pursuant to section 776(c) of the Act.7 For further information, see the Preliminary Determination PDM. All-Others Rate Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated weightedaverage dumping margin for all other producers and exporters not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding any margins that are zero, de minimis, or any margins determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. In this investigation, Commerce has assigned a rate based entirely on facts available to CB. Therefore, the only rate that is not zero, de minimis or based entirely on facts otherwise available is the rate calculated for WBO. Consequently, the rate calculated for WBO is also assigned 5 See Preliminary Determination PDM at 8–10 at 4–7. 7 See Preliminary Determination PDM at 6–7. 6 Id.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 19, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary 
Determination in this investigation, and invited interested parties to 
comment on our findings.\1\ The petitioners in this investigation are 
Insteel Wire Products, Sumiden Wire Products Corporation, and Wire Mesh 
Corp. (the petitioners). The mandatory respondents subject to this 
investigation are CB Trafilati Acciai S.p.A. (CB) and WBO Italcables 
Societa Cooperativa (WBO). CB informed Commerce that it would not 
participate as a mandatory respondent in this investigation.\2\ A 
summary of the events that occurred since Commerce published the 
Preliminary Determination, as well as a full discussion of the issues 
raised by parties for this final determination, may be found in the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum.\3\

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation (POI) is April 1, 2019, through March 
31, 2020.

Scope of the Investigation

    The product covered by this investigation is PC strand from Italy. 
For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see 
Appendix I.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case briefs and rebuttal briefs submitted 
by interested parties in this proceeding are discussed in the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by parties and 
responded to by Commerce in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is 
attached to this notice as Appendix II.

Verification

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

    \4\ See Commerce's Letter, ``WBO Italcables Societa' Cooperative 
Questionnaire in Lieu of Verification,'' dated December 9, 2020; see 
also WBO's Letter, ``Questionnaire in Lieu of Verification 
Response,'' dated December 17, 2020 (ILOV Response).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the ILOV Response and the comments 
received,

[[Page 18506]]

we made one change to the margin calculation for WBO since the 
Preliminary Determination. For a discussion of this change, see the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Negative Determination of Critical Circumstances

    Consistent with the Preliminary Determination,\5\ Commerce 
continues to determine that critical circumstances do not exist within 
the meaning of section 735(a)(3) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Preliminary Determination PDM at 8-10
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Use of Adverse Facts Available

    The mandatory respondent CB withdrew from participation in this 
investigation.\6\ Therefore, in the Preliminary Determination, pursuant 
to sections 776(a) and 776(b) of the Act, we assigned to CB an 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin based on adverse facts 
available (AFA). No parties filed comments concerning the Preliminary 
Determination with respect to CB, and there is no new information on 
the record that would cause us to revisit the Preliminary 
Determination. Accordingly, we continue to find that the application of 
AFA pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act is warranted with 
respect to CB. Consistent with the Preliminary Determination, Commerce 
has assigned to CB the highest individual margin calculated for WBO, 
which is 19.26 percent. Because this rate is not secondary information, 
but rather is based on information obtained in the course of the 
investigation, Commerce need not corroborate this rate pursuant to 
section 776(c) of the Act.\7\ For further information, see the 
Preliminary Determination PDM.

    \7\ See Preliminary Determination PDM at 6-7.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

All-Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margin for all other producers and exporters 
not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding any 
margins that are zero, de minimis, or any margins determined entirely 
under section 776 of the Act. In this investigation, Commerce has 
assigned a rate based entirely on facts available to CB. Therefore, the 
only rate that is not zero, de minimis or based entirely on facts 
otherwise available is the rate calculated for WBO. Consequently, the 
rate calculated for WBO is also assigned as the rate for all other 
producers and exporters.

Final Determination

    The final estimated weighted-average dumping margins are as 
follows:

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose to interested parties the calculations and 
analysis performed in this final determination within five days of any 
public announcement or, if there is no public announcement, within five 
days of the date of the publication of this notice to parties in this 
proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, Commerce will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of subject merchandise, 
as described in Appendix I of this notice, entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after November 19, 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 and 19 CFR 
351.210(d), upon publication of this notice, Commerce will instruct CBP 
to require a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average 
dumping margin or the estimated all-others rate, as follows: (1) The 
cash deposit rate for the respondents listed above will be equal to the 
company-specific estimated weighted-average dumping margin determined 
in this final determination; (2) if the exporter is not a respondent 
identified above but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will 
be equal to the company-specific estimated weighted-average dumping 
margin established for that producer of the subject merchandise; and 
(3) the cash deposit rate for all other producers and exporters will be 
equal to the all-others estimated weighted-average dumping margin. 
These suspension of-liquidation instructions will remain in effect 
until further 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
