SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), Commerce is issuing antidumping duty orders on passenger vehicle and light truck tires (passenger tires) from the Republic of Korea (Korea), Taiwan, and Thailand. In addition, Commerce is amending its final determination with respect to passenger tires from Thailand to correct a ministerial error. DATES: Applicable July 19, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Background In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), on May 27, 2021, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the less-thanfair-value (LTFV) investigations of passenger tires from Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand.1 In the investigation of passenger tires from Thailand, Sumitomo Rubber (Thailand), Ltd. (SRT) submitted a timely allegation on the record that Commerce made 1 See Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the Republic of Korea: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 86 FR 28569 (May 27, 2021); Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from Taiwan: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 86 FR 28563 (May 27, 2021); Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from Taiwan: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value; Correction, 86 FR 30916 (June 10, 2021); and Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from Thailand: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 86 FR 28548 (May 27, 2021) (Thailand Final Determination). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:23 Jul 16, 2021 Jkt 253001 ministerial errors in the final AD determination.2 We reviewed the allegation and determined that we made ministerial errors in the final AD determination on passenger tires from Thailand. See ‘‘Amendment to the Final Determination for Thailand’’ section below for further discussion. On July 12, 2021, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determinations, pursuant to section 735(d) of the Act, that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of LTFV imports of passenger tires from Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand.3 Scope of the Orders The products covered by these orders are passenger tires from Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. For a complete description of the scope of these orders, see the appendix to this notice. Amendment to the Final Determination for Thailand On June 2, 2021, Sumitomo Rubber (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (SRT) timely alleged that Commerce made certain ministerial errors in the Thailand Final Determination with respect to the duty margin assigned to SRT in the passenger tires from Thailand investigation.4 No other party made an allegation of ministerial errors or submitted a rebuttal to SRT’s ministerial error allegation under 19 CFR 351.224(c)(3). Commerce reviewed the record and, on July 12, 2021, agreed that the errors alleged by SRT constituted ministerial errors within the meaning of section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f).5 Specifically, Commerce found that it made inadvertent errors in calculating SRT’s variable cost of manufacturing and by incorrectly identifying in the margin program which data files to use in calculating SRT’s final dumping margin. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), Commerce is amending the Thailand Final Determination to reflect the correction of the ministerial errors, as described in the Ministerial Error Memorandum.6 Based on the SRT’s Letter, ‘‘Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from Thailand: Ministerial Error Comments,’’ dated June 2, 2021 (Ministerial Error Allegation). 3 See ITC Notification Letter, Investigation Nos. 701–TA–647 and 731–TA–1517–1520 (Final), dated July 12, 2021 (ITC Notification Letter). 4 See Ministerial Error Allegation. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Investigation of Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from Thailand: Allegation of Ministerial Errors in the Final Determination,’’ dated concurrently with this Federal Register notice (Ministerial Error Memorandum). 6 Id. PO 00000 2 See Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38011 corrections, SRT’s final dumping margin rate changed from 14.62 percent to 14.59 percent. As a result, we are also revising the all-others rate from 17.08 percent to 17.06 percent. The amended estimated weighted-average dumping margins are listed in the ‘‘Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins’’ section below. Antidumping Duty Orders On July 12, 2021, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determinations in these investigations, in which it found that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of passenger tires from Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand.7 Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, Commerce is issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of passenger tires from Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of passenger tires from Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. With the exception of entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determinations, as further described below, antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of passenger tires from Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after January 6, 2021, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations.8 7 See ITC Notification Letter.
