SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) preliminarily determines that countervailable subsidies are being provided to producers and exporters of glycine from India for the period of review (POR) September 4, 2018, through December 31, 2019. The preliminary net subsidy rates are listed below in the section titled ‘‘Preliminary Results of Administrative Review.’’ Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On August 6, 2020, Commerce published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the countervailing duty order on glycine from India.1 On March 2, 2021, Commerce extended the deadline for issuing the preliminary results of review.2 The revised deadline for these preliminary results of review is now June 30, 2021. For a complete description of the events that followed the initiation of this review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.3 A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included at Appendix I to this notice.

In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is glycine from India. For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 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 that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and the subsidy is specific.4 For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. On June 11, 2021, we initiated an investigation of newly alleged subsidy programs.5 Because we did not receive information from the Government of India, Avid Organics Private Limited (Avid), or Kumar Industries (India) (Kumar) related to the new subsidy programs in time to evaluate them for purposes of these preliminary results of review, we intend to issue postpreliminary review results that incorporate these programs.6 Companies Not Selected for Individual Review For companies not selected for individual review, because the 2019 subsidy rates calculated for Avid and Kumar were above de minimis and not based on facts available, we have preliminarily calculated a subsidy rate based on a weighted-average of the subsidy rates calculated for Avid and Kumar using publicly ranged sales data submitted by respondents.7 For 2018, we preliminarily assigned to the companies not individually examined a subsidy rate of 3.58 percent, which is the 2018 subsidy rate calculated for Avid for these preliminary results of [FR Doc. 2021–15126 Filed 7–15–21; 8:45 am] 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 47731 (August 6, 2020). 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Glycine from India: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results,’’ dated March 2, 2021. 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Affirmative Preliminary Determination: First Administrative Review of Glycine from India,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Jul 15, 2021 Jkt 253001 PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Administrative Review of the Countervailing Duty Order on Glycine from India; 2018–2019, New Subsidy Allegations,’’ dated June 17, 2021. 6 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 7 See Memorandum, ‘‘Calculation of Subsidy Rate for Non-Selected Companies,’’ dated June 30, 2021.

Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is certain corrosion-resistant steel products. For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(l)(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 from an authority that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.6 For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not directly address the CVD rates to be applied to companies not selected for individual examination where Commerce limited its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(e)(2) of the 4 See Memoranda, ‘‘Extension of Deadline for the Preliminary Results of the 2019 Countervailing Duty Administrative Review,’’ dated March 4, 2021, and March 24, 2021, respectively. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2019: Certain CorrosionResistant Steel Products from the Republic of Korea,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (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.

However, Commerce normally determines the rates for non-selected companies in reviews in a manner that is consistent with section 705(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation. Section 777A(e)(2) of the Act provides that ‘‘the individual countervailable subsidy rates determined under subparagraph (A) shall be used to determine the all-others rate under section 705(c)(5) {of the Act}.’’ Section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act states that for companies not investigated, in general, we will determine an all-others rate by weightaveraging the countervailable subsidy rates established for each of the companies individually investigated, excluding zero and de minimis rates or any rates based solely on the facts available. We preliminarily determine that Dongbu is the only mandatory respondent that received countervailable subsidies that are above de minimis. Therefore, we preliminarily determine to apply the net subsidy rate calculated for Dongbu to the nonselected companies. For a list of the 36 companies for which a review was requested, and which were not selected as mandatory respondents or found to be cross-owned with a mandatory respondent, see Appendix II to this notice. Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the net countervailable subsidy rates to be: Producer/exporter KG Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 6, 2020, Commerce published a notice of initiation of 
administrative review of the countervailing duty order on glycine from 
India.\1\ On March 2, 2021, Commerce extended the deadline for issuing 
the preliminary results of review.\2\ The revised deadline for these 
preliminary results of review is now June 30, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 47731 (August 6, 2020).
    \2\ See Memorandum, ``Glycine from India: Extension of Time 
Limit for Preliminary Results,'' dated March 2, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For a complete description of the events that followed the 
initiation of this review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\3\ 
A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is 
included at Appendix I to this notice. 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/.

    \3\ See Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the Affirmative 
Preliminary Determination: First Administrative Review of Glycine 
from India,'' dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this 
notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is glycine from India. For a 
complete description of the scope of the order, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.

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 that 
gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and the subsidy is 
specific.\4\ For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On June 11, 2021, we initiated an investigation of newly alleged 
subsidy programs.\5\ Because we did not receive information from the 
Government of India, Avid Organics Private Limited (Avid), or Kumar 
Industries (India) (Kumar) related to the new subsidy programs in time 
to evaluate them for purposes of these preliminary results of review, 
we intend to issue post-preliminary review results that incorporate 
these programs.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Memorandum, ``Administrative Review of the 
Countervailing Duty Order on Glycine from India; 2018-2019, New 
Subsidy Allegations,'' dated June 17, 2021.
    \6\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Companies Not Selected for Individual Review

    For companies not selected for individual review, because the 2019 
subsidy rates calculated for Avid and Kumar were above de minimis and 
not based on facts available, we have preliminarily calculated a 
subsidy rate based on a weighted-average of the subsidy rates 
calculated for Avid and Kumar using publicly ranged sales data 
submitted by respondents.\7\ For 2018, we preliminarily assigned to the 
companies not individually examined a subsidy rate of 3.58 percent, 
which is the 2018 subsidy rate calculated for Avid for these 
preliminary results of

[[Page 37739]]

review.\8\ This methodology for establishing the subsidy rate for the 
non-selected companies is consistent with our practice and with section 
705(c)(5)(A) of the Act. For additional information, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of Administrative Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4), we determine the following

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

    \9\ In this review, we preliminarily determine that Avid is 
cross owned with Avid Intermediates. See Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum for further discussion.
    \10\ In this review, we preliminarily determine that Kumar is 
cross owned with Rudraa International and Advance Chemical 
Corporation. See Preliminary Decision Memorandum and Kumar

    \11\ Kumar reported that it received no subsidies during the 
2018 calendar year, from programs under review or any other 
subsidies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, upon issuance of 
the final results, Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, countervailing duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review. 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 
to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing 
duties in the amounts shown for 2019 for each of the companies listed 
above with regard to the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the 
final results of this 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, as 
appropriate. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    We will disclose to parties of this proceeding the calculations 
performed in reaching the preliminary results within five days of the 
date of publication of these preliminary results.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.224(b).

briefs on both the preliminary results and on the post-preliminary 
analysis memorandum no later than seven days after the disclosure of 
the calculations performed in connection with the post-preliminary
