Therefore, as a result of this review, we continue to determine that Jiangmen New Star Hi-Tech Enterprise Ltd. (New Star) and KaiPing Dawn Plumbing Products, Inc. (KaiPing) have not established their eligibility for a separate rate and are part of the Chinawide entity. Assessment Rates Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b). Because we determined that KaiPing and New Star were not eligible for a separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to apply the China-wide entity rate, an ad valorem assessment rate of 76.45 percent,4 to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR that were produced and/or exported by KaiPing and New Star. 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 The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the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) For previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 3 For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see Preliminary Results PDM at 3. 4 The China-wide rate determined in the investigation was 76.53 percent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On July 20, 2021, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated lessthan-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of imports of acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (AB rubber) from France, the Republic of Korea, and Mexico.1 Currently, the preliminary determinations are due no later than December 7, 2021. Postponement of Preliminary Determinations Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in an LTFV investigation within 140 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, section 733(c)(1)(A) and (B) of 1 See Acrylonitrile-Butadiene Rubber from France, the Republic of Korea, and Mexico: Initiation of Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigations, 86 FR 40192 (July 27, 2021).

Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On November 1, 2021, the petitioner 2 submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV investigations.3 The petitioner states that a postponement is necessary so that Commerce may have adequate time to issue clarifying supplemental questionnaires that address deficiencies in the respondents’ antidumping questionnaire responses. For the reasons stated above, and because there are no compelling reasons to deny the request, Commerce, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determinations by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the date on which these investigations were initiated). As a result, Commerce will issue its preliminary determinations no later than January 26, 2022. In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations of these investigations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determinations, unless postponed at a later date.

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    For the reasons stated in the Initiation and Preliminary Results, 
and because we received no comments from interested parties to the 
contrary, Commerce continues to find that Huahui Environmental is the 
successor-in-interest to Ningxia Huahui and should be assigned the same

assigned to Ningxia Huahui in the most recently completed review of the 
Order. The cash deposit rate assigned to Ningxia Huahui in the most 
recently completed review was $0.65 per kilogram.\6\ Consequently, 
Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend 
liquidation of all shipments of subject merchandise exported by Huahui 
Environmental and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption 
on or after the publication date of this notice in the Federal Register 
at $0.65 per kilogram, which is the current AD cash deposit rate for 
Ningxia Huahui. This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect 
until further notice.
