Preliminary Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review There are 67 companies for which a review was requested and not rescinded, and which were not selected as mandatory respondents or found to be cross-owned with a mandatory respondent. For these companies, because the rates calculated for the mandatory respondents, Jiangsu Senmao Bamboo and Wood Industry Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu Senmao) and Riverside Plywood Corp. (Riverside Plywood), were above de minimis and not based entirely on facts available, we applied a subsidy rate based on a weightedaverage of the subsidy rates calculated for Jiangsu Senmao and Riverside Plywood using publicly-ranged sales data submitted by these mandatory respondents. This methodology to establish the all-others subsidy rate is consistent with our practice and section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

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 preliminarily 
determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution by an 
``authority'' that confers a benefit to the recipient, and that the 
subsidy is specific.\6\ For a full description of the methodology 
underlying our preliminary conclusions, including our reliance, in 
part, on adverse facts available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of 
the Act, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ 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.

list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is 
included as Appendix I to this notice.

Preliminary Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    There are 67 companies for which a review was requested and not 
rescinded, and which were not selected as mandatory respondents or 
found to be cross-owned with a mandatory respondent. For these 
companies, because the rates calculated for the mandatory respondents, 
Jiangsu Senmao Bamboo and Wood Industry Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu Senmao) and 
Riverside Plywood Corp. (Riverside Plywood), were above de minimis and 
not based entirely on facts available, we applied a subsidy rate based 
on a weighted-average of the subsidy rates calculated for Jiangsu 
Senmao and Riverside Plywood using publicly-ranged sales data submitted 
by these mandatory respondents. This methodology to establish the all-
others subsidy rate is consistent with our practice and section 
705(c)(5)(A) of the Act. For further information on the calculation of 
the non-selected respondent rate, refer to the section in the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum entitled ``Non-Selected Companies Under 
Review.'' For a list of the non-selected companies, see Appendix II to 
this notice.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated a 
countervailable subsidy rate for each of the mandatory respondents, 
Jiangsu Senmao and Riverside Plywood, and their cross-owned affiliates, 
where applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ Cross-owned affiliates are Baroque Timber Industries 
(Zhongshan) Co., Ltd. and Suzhou Times Flooring Co., Ltd.
    \8\ See Appendix II.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We preliminarily find the countervailable subsidy rates for the 
mandatory and non-selected respondents under review to be as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                Subsidy

Assessment Rates

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we preliminarily 
assigned subsidy rates in the amounts shown above for the producer/
exporters shown above. Upon completion of the administrative review, 
consistent with section 751(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), 
Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, countervailing duties 
on all appropriate entries covered by this review. For the companies 
for which this review is rescinded, Commerce will instruct CBP to 
assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries at a rate equal 
to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties required at the 
time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during 
the period January 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(l)(i). 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 Requirements

    In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce intends, 
upon publication of the final results, to instruct CBP to collect cash 
deposits of estimated countervailing duties in the amounts shown for 
each of the respective companies listed above 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 at the most recent company-specific or all-others rate 
applicable to the company. These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Interested Parties

    These preliminary results are issued and published pursuant to 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).
