Changes From the Preliminary Results Based on information received since the Preliminary Results, we determine that one additional company, Kemian Wood Industry (Kunshan) Co., Ltd., is eligible for a separate rate.6 Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that certain companies did not have shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. As we received no information to contradict our preliminary determination with respect to those companies, we continue to find that they made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Accordingly, we will issue appropriate instructions that are consistent with our ‘‘automatic assessment’’ clarification for all of the companies listed in Appendix II.7 Final Results of Successor-in-Interest Analysis In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Arte Mundi is the successor-in-interest to Scholar Home.8 No party commented on this issue and we have not received any information to contradict our preliminary finding. Therefore, we continue to find that Arte Mundi is the successor-in-interest to Scholar Home. Separate Rates We determine that Senmao and 35 additional companies that were not selected for individual review demonstrated their eligibility for separate rates.9 We continue to find that Dalian Qianqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd., Fusong Jinlong Wooden Group Co., Ltd., Fusong Jinqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd., and Fusong Qianqiu Wooden Products Co., Ltd. (collectively, Jinlong) is not eligible for a separate rate.10 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Rate for Non-Examined Separate Rate Respondents The statute and our regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be assigned to respondents not selected for individual examination when we limit our examination of companies subject to 6 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at the ‘‘Changes to the Preliminary Results’’ section. 7 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (Assessment Notice); see also ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section, below. 8 See Preliminary Results PDM at 9–10. 9 See Appendix IV. 10 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:17 Oct 28, 2021 Jkt 256001 the administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2)(B) of the Act. Generally, we look to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for respondents not individually examined 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 and de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the basis of facts available}.’’ Accordingly, Commerce’s usual practice in determining the rate for separate-rate respondents not selected for individual examination, has been to average the weighted-average dumping margins of the selected companies, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.11 However, when the weighted-average dumping margins established for all individually investigated respondents are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available, section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act permits Commerce to ‘‘use any reasonable method to establish the estimated all-others rate for exporters and producers not individually investigated, including averaging the estimated weighted-average dumping margins determined for the exporters and producers individually investigated.’’ 12 For the final results of this review, we continue to determine the estimated dumping margin for Senmao to be zero. Thus, consistent with the Preliminary Results, we are assigning this rate to the non-examined respondents which qualify for a separate rate in this review through use of the expected method as a ‘‘reasonable method’’ for assigning a rate to the non-examined respondents.13 The China-Wide Entity Aside from the companies for which we made a final no-shipment determination, Commerce considers all 11 See Longkou Haimeng Mach. Co. v. United States, 581 F. Supp. 2d 1344, 1357–60 (CIT 2008) (affirming Commerce’s determination to assign a 4.22 percent dumping margin to the separate-rate respondents in a segment where the three mandatory respondents received dumping margins of 4.22 percent, 0.03 percent, and zero percent, respectively); see also Certain Kitchen Appliance Shelving and Racks from the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 74 FR 36656, 36660 (July 24, 2009). 12 See Albemarle Corp. v.

PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 other companies for which a review was requested, and which did not demonstrate separate rate eligibility, to be part of the China-wide entity.14 Final Results of Administrative Review For the companies subject to this administrative review which established their eligibility for a separate rate, Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period December 1, 2018, through November 30, 2019: Producer/exporter Jiangsu Senmao Bamboo and Wood Industry Co., Ltd. .................................... Non-Selected Companies Under Review Receiving a Separate Rate 15 ............... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 0.00 0.00 Disclosure Normally, Commerce discloses to the parties in a proceeding the calculations performed in connection with a final results of review in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, because Commerce made no adjustments to the margin calculation methodology used in the Preliminary Results, there are no calculations to disclose for the final results of review. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with these final results of review. We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of these final results. 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). For Senmao, and the respondents which were not selected for individual examination in this administrative review and which qualified for a separate rate, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by 14 See 15 See E:\FR\FM\29OCN1.SGM Appendix III. Appendix IV. 29OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 207 / Friday, October 29, 2021 / Notices Senmao, and for the companies that did not qualify for a separate rate in the administrative review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the China-wide rate (i.e., 85.13 percent).16 Consistent with Commerce’s assessment practice in non-market economy cases, for the companies which Commerce determined had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries made under those exporters’ case numbers (i.e., at the exporters’ rates) will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.17 Cash Deposit Requirements khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of these final results for shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For companies which were found eligible for a separate rate in this review, the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the Chinawide entity; and (4) for all non-Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Administrative Protective Orders 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, 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 sanctionable violation. This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5). Dated: October 22, 2021.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or specific questions related to collection activities should be directed to Gabrielle Aberle, 907–586–7228. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Alaska Regional Office, is requesting renewal of a currently approved information collection that contains requirements for the NMFS Alaska Region cost recovery fee programs and the observer coverage fee program. A slight revision is requested to change the title of the collection from ‘‘Alaska Quota Cost Recovery Programs’’ to ‘‘Alaska Cost Recovery and Fee Programs.’’ This information collection is necessary under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), which authorizes observer deployment fees and cost recovery fees. Section 304(d) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act authorizes and requires the collection of cost recovery fees for limited access privilege programs and community development quota programs. Section 313 of the Magnuson-Stevens Act authorizes a system of fees to support a fisheries research plan and deploy observers in the North Pacific fisheries. The fee documentation forms and volume and value reports that are included in this collection are necessary to track, verify, and enforce the fee collection systems. This information collection is required in Federal regulations at 50 CFR parts 679 and 680. Information on the observer coverage fee and cost recovery fee programs is provided on the NMFS Alaska Region website at https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/alaska/ commercial-fishing/cost-recoveryprograms-fee-collection-and-feepayment-alaska. Cost recovery fees may not exceed 3 percent of the ex-vessel value of the fishery, and must recover the incremental (program) costs associated with management, data collection, and enforcement of these programs that are directly incurred by government agencies tasked with overseeing these PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 fisheries. NMFS recovers program costs of seven cost recovery programs in this information collection: Pacific Halibut and Sablefish Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) Program; Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Crab Rationalization Program; Central Gulf of Alaska Rockfish Program; Western Alaska Community Development Quota Program; American Fisheries Act Program; Aleutian Islands Pollock Program; and Amendment 80 Program. The party responsible for paying the cost recovery fee varies by program. The observer coverage fee funds deployment of observers and electronic monitoring in the partial coverage category of the North Pacific Observer Program (Observer Program). Unlike the cost recovery fees, this is a straight fee and does not recover incremental costs associated with the program. NMFS assesses a fee of 1.25 percent of the exvessel value of groundfish and halibut landed in the partial coverage category under the Observer Program. The information collected by observers provides scientific information for minimizing bycatch and managing the groundfish and halibut fisheries in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska. Catcher vessel owners split the observer coverage fee with the registered buyers or owners of shore side or stationary floating processors. While the owners of catcher vessels and processors in the partial coverage category are each responsible for paying their portion of the fee, the owners of shore side or stationary floating processors and registered buyers are responsible for collecting the fees from catcher vessels, and remitting the full fee to NMFS. Owners of catcher/ processors in the partial coverage category are responsible for remitting the full fee to NMFS. Processors that receive and purchase landings of IFQ halibut or sablefish, rockfish, groundfish, and crab subject to observer and/or cost recovery fees must annually submit an ex-vessel volume and value report that provides information on the pounds purchased and value paid. NMFS uses this information to establish the total exvessel value of the fishery, calculate standard prices, and establish annual fee percentages in each fishery. IFQ permit holders and registered crab receivers that do not agree with their NMFS assessed IFQ fee liability summary and who are paying a revised fee, use the fee documentation forms to calculate and submit documentation supporting their revised fee.

Changes From the Preliminary Results

    Based on information received since the Preliminary Results, we 
determine that one additional company, Kemian Wood Industry (Kunshan) 
Co., Ltd., is eligible for a separate rate.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at the ``Changes to the 
Preliminary Results'' section.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that certain 
companies did not have shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. 
As we received no information to contradict our preliminary 
determination with respect to those companies, we continue to find that 
they made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR. Accordingly, we will issue appropriate instructions 
that are consistent with our ``automatic assessment'' clarification for 
all of the companies listed in Appendix II.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (Assessment 
Notice); see also ``Assessment Rates'' section, below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Successor-in-Interest Analysis

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Arte Mundi is 
the successor-in-interest to Scholar Home.\8\ No party commented on 
this issue and we have not received any information to contradict our 
preliminary finding. Therefore, we continue to find that Arte Mundi is 
the successor-in-interest to Scholar Home.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Preliminary Results PDM at 9-10.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    We determine that Senmao and 35 additional companies that were not 
selected for individual review demonstrated their eligibility for 
separate rates.\9\ We continue to find that Dalian Qianqiu Wooden 
Product Co., Ltd., Fusong Jinlong Wooden Group Co., Ltd., Fusong Jinqiu 
Wooden Product Co., Ltd., and Fusong Qianqiu Wooden Products Co., Ltd. 
(collectively, Jinlong) is not eligible for a separate rate.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Appendix IV.
    \10\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rate for Non-Examined Separate Rate Respondents

    The statute and our regulations do not address the establishment of 
a rate to be assigned to respondents not selected for individual 
examination when we limit our examination of companies subject to the 
administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2)(B) of the Act. 
Generally, we look to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides 
instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, 
for guidance when calculating the rate for respondents not individually 
examined 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 and de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on 
the basis of facts available{time} .'' Accordingly, Commerce's usual 
practice in determining the rate for separate-rate respondents not 
selected for individual examination, has been to average the weighted-
average dumping margins of the selected companies, excluding rates that 
are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.\11\ 
However, when the weighted-average dumping margins established for all 
individually investigated respondents are zero, de minimis, or based 
entirely on facts available, section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act permits 
Commerce to ``use any reasonable method to establish the estimated all-
others rate for exporters and producers not individually investigated, 
including averaging the estimated weighted-average dumping margins 
determined for the exporters and producers individually investigated.'' 
\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Longkou Haimeng Mach. Co. v. United States, 581 F. 
Supp. 2d 1344, 1357-60 (CIT 2008) (affirming Commerce's 
determination to assign a 4.22 percent dumping margin to the 
separate-rate respondents in a segment where the three mandatory 
respondents received dumping margins of 4.22 percent, 0.03 percent, 
and zero percent, respectively); see also Certain Kitchen Appliance 
Shelving and Racks from the People's Republic of China: Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 74 FR 36656, 36660 
(July 24, 2009).
    \12\ See Albemarle Corp. v. United States, 821 F.3d 1345 (Fed. 
Cir. 2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the final results of this review, we continue to determine the 
estimated dumping margin for Senmao to be zero. Thus, consistent with 
the Preliminary Results, we are assigning this rate to the non-examined 
respondents which qualify for a separate rate in this review through 
use of the expected method as a ``reasonable method'' for assigning a 
rate to the non-examined respondents.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Preliminary Results PDM at 15-16; see also Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at Comment 1; and section 735(c)(5)(B) of the 
Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The China-Wide Entity

    Aside from the companies for which we made a final no-shipment 
determination, Commerce considers all other companies for which a 
review was requested, and which did not demonstrate separate rate 
eligibility, to be part of the China-wide entity.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See Appendix III.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Administrative Review

    For the companies subject to this administrative review which 
established their eligibility for a separate rate, Commerce determines 
that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the 
period December 1, 2018, through November 30, 2019:

                    Producer/exporter                     dumping margin

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce discloses to the parties in a proceeding the 
calculations performed in connection with a final results of review in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, because Commerce made no 
adjustments to the margin calculation methodology used in the 
Preliminary Results, there are no calculations to disclose for the 
final results of review.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with these final results of review. We intend 
to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after 
the date of publication of these final results. 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).
    For Senmao, and the respondents which were not selected for 
individual examination in this administrative review and which 
qualified for a separate rate, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For entries 
that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by

[[Page 59989]]

Senmao, and for the companies that did not qualify for a separate rate 
in the administrative review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate 
such entries at the China-wide rate (i.e., 85.13 percent).\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People's Republic 
of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and Final Determination of No Shipments; 2016-2017, 84 FR 38002, 
38003 (August 5, 2019).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice in non-market 
economy cases, for the companies which Commerce determined had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries made under 
those exporters' case numbers (i.e., at the exporters' rates) will be 
liquidated at the China-wide rate.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Assessment 
Notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results for shipments of the subject 
merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For companies which were found eligible 
for a separate rate in this review, the cash deposit rate will be zero; 
(2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese 
exporters that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing 
exporter-specific rate; (3) for all Chinese exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, 
the cash deposit rate will be that for the China-wide entity; and (4) 
for all non-Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied that non-Chinese 
exporter. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain 
in effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

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

Administrative Protective Orders

    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, 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 sanctionable violation.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
