For a complete description of the scope of this order, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.9 Analysis of Comments Received We addressed all issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs filed by interested parties in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Attached to this notice in Appendix I is a list of the issues which parties raised. 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. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we made certain changes to Vinh Hoan’s weighted-average dumping margin and revised the list of companies within the Vinh Hoan collapsed entity. For these final results, Commerce also updated the weighted-average dumping margin assigned to the non-individuallyexamined company receiving a separate rate, i.e., NAVICO. For a discussion of the above-referenced changes, see the ‘‘Changes Since the Preliminary Results’’ section of the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce preliminarily determined that 21 companies had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.10 Following the publication of the Preliminary Results, we received no comments from interested parties 8 See Notice of Antidumpimg Duty Order: Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 68 FR 47909 (August 12, 2003) (Order). 9 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2018–2019,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum) at 3. 10 See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 84300.

Therefore, for these final results, we find that these 19 companies had no shipments during the POR. With respect to the remaining two companies, HVG 11 and Thanh Binh Dong Thap One Member Company Limited (Thanh Binh),12 we received comments from interested parties requesting that Commerce reevaluate our no shipment determination. With regard to HVG, Commerce continues to find that HVG had no shipments during the POR.13 With regard to Thanh Binh, Commerce now finds that this company is part of the Vinh Hoan single entity.14 For a list of the 20 companies for which we find ‘‘no shipments’’ for these final results, see Appendix II. Consistent with our practice, we will issue appropriate instructions to CBP consistent with the reseller policy. 15 Separate Rates We continue to find that the nonindividually-examined exporter NAVICO and individually-examined respondent Vinh Hoan have demonstrated eligibility for separate rates. As noted below, we have assigned NAVICO the rate established for Vinh Hoan, in accordance with section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Vietnam-Wide Entity lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 In the Preliminary Results, we denied Seafood Joint Stock Company No.4 Branch Dongtam Fisheries Processing Company (DOTASEAFOOD) a separate rate.16 For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we continue to find that DOTASEAFOOD is not eligible for a separate rate.17 Thus, we find DOTASEAFOOD to be part of the Vietnam-wide entity. In the Preliminary Results, Commerce found that certain additional companies for which a review was requested did not establish eligibility for a separate rate.18 We have received no information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this preliminary finding. 11 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 4. 12 Id. at Comment 8. 13 Id. at Comment 4. 14 Id. at Comment 8. 15 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 16 See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 84300–84301. 17 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 5. 18 See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 84301.

(Showa Denko). On October 8, 2020, Showa Denko withdrew from participation in this administrative review.2 For a more detailed description of the events that followed the initiation of this review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.3 The Preliminary 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 Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/ frn/index.html. A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an appendix to this notice. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is glycine. For a complete description of the scope of this administrative review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.3 Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price and constructed export price are calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Facts Available Pursuant to section 776(a) of the Act, Commerce is preliminarily relying upon facts otherwise available to assign an estimated weighted-average dumping margin to Showa Denko in this review because Showa Denko withheld 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 47731 (August 6, 2020). 2 See Showa Denko’s Letter, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Glycine from Japan: Withdrawal of Participation as Mandatory Respondent,’’ dated October 8, 2020. 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Glycine from Japan,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36105 necessary information that was requested by Commerce, thereby significantly impeding the conduct of the review. Further, Commerce preliminarily determines that Showa Denko failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability to comply with requests for information and, thus, Commerce is applying adverse facts available (AFA) in determining a weighted-average dumping margin for Showa Denko, in accordance with section 776(b) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions regarding the application of AFA, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Results of Review We preliminarily determine that, for the period October 31, 2018, through May 31, 2020, the following weightedaverage dumping margins exist: 4 Producer/exporter Yuki Gosei Kogyo Co., Ltd./ Nagase & Co., Ltd5 ................. Showa Denko K.K ...................... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 27.71 86.22 Disclosure and Public Comment We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this administrative review within five days after public announcement of the preliminary results, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c), interested parties may submit case briefs no later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice. Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed not later than seven days after the date for filing case briefs.6 Commerce has modified certain 4 As AFA, we preliminarily assign Showa Denko a dumping margin of 86.22 percent, the highest rate on the record of the proceeding. See Glycine from Japan: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 84 FR 18484 (May 1, 2019). This rate achieves the purpose of applying an adverse inference, i.e., it is sufficiently adverse to ensure that the uncooperative party does not obtain a more favorable result by failing to cooperate than if it had fully cooperated. Because we previously applied this rate in the investigation, according to 776(c)(2) of the Act, this rate does not require corroboration. 5 As explained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, based on the record information, Commerce preliminarily determines that Nagase & Co., Ltd. and a non-selected respondent, Yuki Gosei Kogyo Co., Ltd., are affiliated within the meaning of section 771(33)(E) of the Act and should be treated as a single entity pursuant to 19 CFR 351.401(f) for these preliminary results of review. 6 See 19 CFR 351.309(d); see also Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID–19, 85 FR 17006, 17007 (March 26, 2020) E:\FR\FM\08JYN1.SGM Continued 08JYN1

Analysis of Comments Received

    We addressed all issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs 
filed by interested parties in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. 
Attached to this notice in Appendix I is a list of the issues which 
parties raised. 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.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum, we made certain changes to Vinh Hoan's weighted-
average dumping margin and revised the list of companies within the 
Vinh Hoan collapsed entity. For these final results, Commerce also 
updated the weighted-average dumping margin assigned to the non-
individually-examined company receiving a separate rate, i.e., NAVICO. 
For a discussion of the above-referenced changes, see the ``Changes 
Since the Preliminary Results'' section of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce preliminarily determined that 
21 companies had no shipments of subject merchandise during the 
POR.\10\ Following the publication of the Preliminary Results, we 
received no comments from interested parties

[[Page 36103]]

regarding 19 of these companies, nor has any party submitted record 
evidence which would call our preliminary no shipment determination 
into question for them. Therefore, for these final results, we find 
that these 19 companies had no shipments during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 84300.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With respect to the remaining two companies, HVG \11\ and Thanh 
Binh Dong Thap One Member Company Limited (Thanh Binh),\12\ we received 
comments from interested parties requesting that Commerce reevaluate 
our no shipment determination. With regard to HVG, Commerce continues 
to find that HVG had no shipments during the POR.\13\ With regard to 
Thanh Binh, Commerce now finds that this company is part of the Vinh 
Hoan single entity.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For a list of the 20 companies for which we find ``no shipments'' 
for these final results, see Appendix II. Consistent with our practice, 
we will issue appropriate instructions to CBP consistent with the 
reseller policy. \15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    We continue to find that the non-individually-examined exporter 
NAVICO and individually-examined respondent Vinh Hoan have demonstrated 
eligibility for separate rates. As noted below, we have assigned NAVICO 
the rate established for Vinh Hoan, in accordance with section 
735(c)(5)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Vietnam-Wide Entity

    In the Preliminary Results, we denied Seafood Joint Stock Company 
No.4 Branch Dongtam Fisheries Processing Company (DOTASEAFOOD) a 
separate rate.\16\ For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, we continue to find that DOTASEAFOOD is not eligible for a 
separate rate.\17\ Thus, we find DOTASEAFOOD to be part of the Vietnam-
wide entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 84300-84301.
    \17\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 5.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce found that certain additional 
companies for which a review was requested did not establish 
eligibility for a separate rate.\18\ We have received no information 
since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for 
reconsidering this preliminary finding. Therefore, Commerce continues 
to find that these companies are part of the Vietnam-wide entity.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 84301.
    \19\ See Appendix III.

Final Results of Administrative Review

    The weighted-average dumping margins for the final results of this 
administrative review are as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \20\ In the third administrative review of this order, Commerce 
determined that it would calculate per-unit assessment and cash 
deposit rates for all future reviews. See Certain Frozen Fish 
Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Partial Rescission, 73 FR 
15479, 15481 (March 24, 2008).

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed regarding these 
final results within five days of the date of publication of this 
notice to parties in this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce has determined, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the 
final results of this review. Consistent with its recent notice,\21\ 
Commerce intends to issue appropriate 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \21\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because we calculated a weighted-average dumping margin of zero for 
Vinh Hoan, and applied that rate to NAVICO in the final results of this 
review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties. Pursuant to Commerce's assessment 
practice, for entries of Vinh Hoan's merchandise that were not reported 
in the U.S. sales data submitted by Vinh Hoan during this review, 
Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the Vietnam-
wide entity rate.
    Where we determined that an exporter under review had no shipments 
of the subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, any 
suspended entries that entered during the POR under that exporter's CBP 
case number will be liquidated at a rate of $2.39 per kilogram, the 
rate for the Vietnam-wide entity consistent with Commerce's reseller 
policy.\22\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \22\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Likewise, for companies that were found to be ineligible for a 
separate rate, we will instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject 
merchandise exported by such companies also at a rate of $2.39 per 
kilogram, the rate for the Vietnam-wide entity.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters listed above, 
the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-averaged dumping 
margin established in the final results of review; (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed Vietnamese and non-Vietnamese exporters not 
listed above that maintain their eligibility for a separate rate, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate 
published for the most recently-completed segment of this proceeding in 
which they were reviewed; (3) for all Vietnamese exporters of subject 
merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be $2.39 per kilogram, the rate 
established for the Vietnam-wide entity; and (4) for all non-Vietnamese 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the 
Vietnamese exporters that supplied that non-Vietnamese exporter.
    The deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

[[Page 36104]]

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a 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)(l) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: June 25, 2021.
James Maeder,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
