A full description of the scope of the Order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.8 Partial Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. As noted above, on January 19, 2021, Pioneer, PP Bafna, SAB, SGM, and Super Impex timely withdrew their requests for review.9 On January 20, 2021, Cellpage, Lotus Global, and Kokuyo timely withdrew their requests for review.10 On January 28, 2021, ITC Limited, Bhaskar, Dinakar, and JC Stationery timely withdrew their requests for review.11 Because there is still an active review request for Pioneer and SGM, we are not rescinding the review with respect to these companies.12 However, because there was a timely withdrawal of requests for review and because there are no other active requests for review, we are rescinding this review with respect to the following companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1): Bhaskar, Cellpage, Dinakar, ITC Limited, JC Stationery, Kokuyo, Lotus Global, PP Bafna, SAB, and Super Impex. 8 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Lined Paper Products from India; 2018–2019,’’ dated concurrently and hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 9 See Pioneer’s Withdrawal of Request for Review; PP Bafna’s Withdrawal of Request for Review; SAB’s Withdrawal of Request for Review; SGM’s Withdrawal of Request for Review; and Super Impex’s Withdrawal of Request for Review. 10 See Cellpage’s Withdrawal of Request for Review; Lotus Global’s Withdrawal of Request for Review; and Kokuyo’s Withdrawal of Request for Review. 11 See ITC Limited, Bhaskar, Dinakar, and JC Stationery’s Withdrawal of Request for Review. 12 See Petitioners’ Letter, ‘‘Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated September 30, 2020. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54427 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments On November 23, 2020, Goldenpalm submitted a no-shipment certification.13 To confirm Goldenpalm’s no-shipment claim, on January 28, 2021, Commerce issued a no-shipment inquiry to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).14 CBP reported that it had no information to contradict Goldenpalm’s no shipments claim during the POR.15 Given that Goldenpalm reported that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, and there is no information calling Goldenpalm’s claim into question, we preliminarily determine that Goldenpalm did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. Consistent with Commerce’s practice, we will not rescind the review with respect to Goldenpalm but, rather, will complete the review and issue instructions to CBP based on the final results.16 Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Act. Export price is 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 preliminary results, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and 13 See Goldenpalm’s Letter, ‘‘Response to Q & V Questionnaire,’’ dated November 23, 2020. 14 See Memorandum, ‘‘No Shipment Inquiry,’’ dated January 28, 2021. 15 See Memorandum, ‘‘No shipment inquiry with respect to the company below during the period 09/ 01/2019 through 08/30/2020’’ dated March 12, 2021. 16 Commerce determined to not rescind a review with respect to exporters that demonstrate that they had no knowledge of sales through resellers to the United States because we find it appropriate to instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the allothers rate applicable to the proceeding. Further, Commerce explained that it is more consistent with the Automatic Assessment Clarification not to rescind a review in part under these circumstances but rather to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.

A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an appendix to this notice. Adverse Facts Available Sections 776(a)(1) and 776(a)(2) of the Act provide that Commerce shall, subject to section 782(d) of the Act, apply ‘‘facts otherwise available’’ if necessary information is not available on the record or if any other person: (A) Withholds information requested by Commerce; (B) fails to provide such information by the deadlines for submission of the information, or in the form and manner requested, subject to subsections (c)(1) and (e) of section 782 of the Act; (C) significantly impedes a proceeding; or (D) provides such information but the information cannot be verified as provided in section 782(i) of the Act. Pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, Commerce has preliminarily relied upon facts otherwise available with adverse inferences to determine the estimated weighted-average dumping margin for Magic International Pvt. Ltd. and Marisa International because they did not submit timely responses to Commerce’s quantity and value questionnaire. We are preliminarily assigning to Magic International Pvt. Ltd. and Marisa International, as adverse facts available, the highest rate from the petition, which we have corroborated under section 776(c)(2) of the Act using the highest individual transaction-specific margin calculated for Navneet. For a complete explanation of the analysis underlying the application of AFA, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Rate for Non-Selected Respondents The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:04 Sep 30, 2021 Jkt 256001 ‘‘an amount equal to the weightedaverage of the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the basis of facts available}.’’ In this segment of the proceeding, we calculated a margin for Navneet that was not zero, de minimis, or based on facts available. Accordingly, we have preliminarily applied the margin calculated for Navneet to the nonindividually examined respondents. Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily find the following weighted-average dumping margins for the period September 1, 2019 through August 31, 2020. Producer/exporter Navneet Education Ltd ............... Lodha Offset Limited .................. Pioneer Stationery Pvt. Ltd ........ SGM Paper Products ................. Magic International Pvt. Ltd ........ Marisa International .................... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 18.35 18.35 18.35 18.35 215.93 215.93 Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. If a respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for an importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of such sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. Pursuant to Commerce’s Automatic Assessment Clarification, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by a respondent for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 company(ies) involved in the transaction.17 We intend 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 The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for respondent noted above will be the rates established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 3.91 percent, the all-others rate established in the investigation.18 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Disclosure and Public Comment We will disclose to parties to the proceeding any calculations performed in connection with these preliminary results of review within five days after the date of publication of this notice.19 Interested parties may submit case briefs not later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.20 Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed no later than seven days after the 17 See Automatic Assessment Clarification.

An electronically filed document must be received successfully in its entirety by the established deadline. Interested parties who wish to request a hearing, limited to issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs, must submit a written request to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.23 Requests should contain: (1) The party’s name, address, and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues to be discussed. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case and rebuttal briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at a time and date to be determined. Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date. We intend to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of our analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification to Interested Parties We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1). 21 See 19 CFR 351.309(d)(1); see also Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID–19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 41363 (July 10, 2020) (Temporary Rule). 22 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2) and 19 CFR 351.303 (for general filing requirements). 23 See 19 CFR 351.310(c).

AGENCY: Background Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), may request, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (Commerce) conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation. All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by Commerce discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting date. Respondent Selection In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54429 examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 35 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. Commerce invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review. In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, Commerce finds that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, Commerce will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of a review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to a review, if Commerce determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to: (a) Identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed; and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete a Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data E:\FR\FM\01OCN1.SGM 01OCN1

Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Lined 
Paper Products from India; 2018-2019,'' dated concurrently and 
hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. As noted 
above, on January 19, 2021, Pioneer, PP Bafna, SAB, SGM, and Super 
Impex timely withdrew their requests for review.\9\ On January 20, 
2021, Cellpage, Lotus Global, and Kokuyo timely withdrew their requests 
for review.\10\ On January 28, 2021, ITC Limited, Bhaskar, Dinakar, and 
JC Stationery timely withdrew their requests for review.\11\ Because 
there is still an active review request for Pioneer and SGM, we are not 
rescinding the review with respect to these companies.\12\ However, 
because there was a timely withdrawal of requests for review and 
because there are no other active requests for review, we are 
rescinding this review with respect to the following companies, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1): Bhaskar, Cellpage, Dinakar, ITC 
Limited, JC Stationery, Kokuyo, Lotus Global, PP Bafna, SAB, and Super 
Impex.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On November 23, 2020, Goldenpalm submitted a no-shipment 
certification.\13\ To confirm Goldenpalm's no-shipment claim, on 
January 28, 2021, Commerce issued a no-shipment inquiry to U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP).\14\ CBP reported that it had no 
information to contradict Goldenpalm's no shipments claim during the 
POR.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Goldenpalm's Letter, ``Response to Q & V 
Questionnaire,'' dated November 23, 2020.
    \14\ See Memorandum, ``No Shipment Inquiry,'' dated January 28, 
2021.
    \15\ See Memorandum, ``No shipment inquiry with respect to the 
company below during the period 09/01/2019 through 08/30/2020'' 
dated March 12, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Given that Goldenpalm reported that it made no shipments of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR, and there is no 
information calling Goldenpalm's claim into question, we preliminarily 
determine that Goldenpalm did not have any reviewable transactions 
during the POR. Consistent with Commerce's practice, we will not 
rescind the review with respect to Goldenpalm but, rather, will 
complete the review and issue instructions to CBP based on the final 
results.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ Commerce determined to not rescind a review with respect to 
exporters that demonstrate that they had no knowledge of sales 
through resellers to the United States because we find it 
appropriate to instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the all-
others rate applicable to the proceeding. Further, Commerce 
explained that it is more consistent with the Automatic Assessment 
Clarification not to rescind a review in part under these 
circumstances but rather to complete the review and issue 
appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review. See, e.g., Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand;

Shipments; 2012-2013, 79 FR 15951, 15952 (March 24, 2014), unchanged

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

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Act. Export price is 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 preliminary results, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document 
and is on file electronically via Enforcement and

[[Page 54428]]

Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at 
https://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. A list of the topics discussed in the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an appendix to this 
notice.

Adverse Facts Available

    Sections 776(a)(1) and 776(a)(2) of the Act provide that Commerce 
shall, subject to section 782(d) of the Act, apply ``facts otherwise 
available'' if necessary information is not available on the record or 
if any other person: (A) Withholds information requested by Commerce; 
(B) fails to provide such information by the deadlines for submission 
of the information, or in the form and manner requested, subject to 
subsections (c)(1) and (e) of section 782 of the Act; (C) significantly 
impedes a proceeding; or (D) provides such information but the 
information cannot be verified as provided in section 782(i) of the 
Act. Pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, Commerce has 
preliminarily relied upon facts otherwise available with adverse 
inferences to determine the estimated weighted-average dumping margin 
for Magic International Pvt. Ltd. and Marisa International because they 
did not submit timely responses to Commerce's quantity and value 
questionnaire. We are preliminarily assigning to Magic International 
Pvt. Ltd. and Marisa International, as adverse facts available, the 
highest rate from the petition, which we have corroborated under 
section 776(c)(2) of the Act using the highest individual transaction-
specific margin calculated for Navneet. For a complete explanation of 
the analysis underlying the application of AFA, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Selected Respondents

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for 
individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an 
administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. 
Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which 
provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market 
economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for 
companies which were not selected for individual examination in an 
administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-
others rate is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted-average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero 
or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the 
basis of facts available{time} .''
    In this segment of the proceeding, we calculated a margin for 
Navneet that was not zero, de minimis, or based on facts available. 
Accordingly, we have preliminarily applied the margin calculated for 
Navneet to the non-individually examined respondents.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily find the following 
weighted-average dumping margins for the period September 1, 2019 
through August 31, 2020.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Weighted-
                                                                average

                                                               (percent)

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

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered 
by this review. If a respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is 
not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem 
antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total 
amount of dumping calculated for an importer's examined sales and the 
total entered value of such sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), 
or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.
    Pursuant to Commerce's Automatic Assessment Clarification, for 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by a respondent 
for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United 
States, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at 
the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See Automatic Assessment Clarification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend 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

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for respondent noted 
above will be the rates established in the final results of this 
administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or 
exporters not covered in this administrative review but covered in a 
prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to 
be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed 
segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the 
producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established 
for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the 
producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for 
all other producers or exporters will continue to be 3.91 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the investigation.\18\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See Order, 71 FR 56952.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or countervailing 
duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review 
period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing 
duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping 
duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: September 27, 2021.
