SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is conducting the 26th administrative review of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People’s Republic of China (China). The period of review (POR) for the administrative review is November 1, 2019, through October 31, 2020. Commerce preliminarily determines that the only mandatory respondent for which a request for review remains, Jining Shunchang Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Shunchang), failed to establish its eligibility for a separate rate and therefore is part of the China-wide entity. We also preliminarily find that the review request made by The Roots Farm Inc. (Roots Farm) was not valid, and accordingly, because it was the sole remaining request for the other mandatory respondent, Zhengzhou Harmoni Spice Co., Ltd. (Harmoni), we have preliminarily rescinded the review with respect to Harmoni. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Applicable November 30, 2021.

Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate (i.e., $4.71/kg) is not subject to change. Aside from the companies for which the review is being rescinded or preliminarily rescinded, Commerce considers all other companies 8 for which a review was requested, and which did not preliminarily qualify for a separate rate, to be part of the China-wide entity.

Commerce will direct CBP to assess rates based on the per-unit (i.e., per kilogram) amount on each entry of the subject merchandise during the POR. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 35 days after the publication date of the final results of review. Commerce announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for merchandise that was not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, but that entered under the case number of that exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined exporter’s cash deposit rate), Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if Commerce determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.12 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this review 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) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in these final results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the China-wide rate of 4.71 U.S. dollars per kilogram; and (4) for all non12 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

Fresh Garlic From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary 
Results, Preliminary Rescission, and Final Rescission, In Part, of the 
26th Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2019-2020

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is conducting the 26th 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic 
from the People's Republic of China (China). The period of review (POR) 
for the administrative review is November 1, 2019, through October 31, 
2020. Commerce preliminarily determines that the only mandatory 
respondent for which a request for review remains, Jining Shunchang 
Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Shunchang), failed to establish its 
eligibility for a separate rate and therefore is part of the China-wide 
entity. We also preliminarily find that the review request made by The 
Roots Farm Inc. (Roots Farm) was not valid, and accordingly, because it 
was the sole remaining request for the other mandatory respondent, 
Zhengzhou Harmoni Spice Co., Ltd. (Harmoni), we have preliminarily 
rescinded the review with respect to Harmoni. We invite interested 
parties to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Applicable November 30, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 6, 2021, Commerce initiated the twenty-sixth 
administrative review of antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from 
China \1\ with respect to eighteen companies.\2\ Commerce initially 
selected Harmoni for individual examination.\3\ After issuing a 
standing questionnaire to Roots Farm, and Roots Farm's failure to 
timely respond, Commerce indicated its intent to preliminarily rescind 
review of Harmoni, and selected Shunchang as the only respondent 
subject to individual examination.\4\

Scope of the Order

    The products subject to the Order are all grades of garlic, whole

the Order are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
of the United States (HTSUS) 0703.20.0000, 0703.20.0005, 0703.20.0010,

hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    On March 23, 2021, all review requests were timely withdrawn for 
fifteen companies.\6\ Commerce is, therefore, partially rescinding this 
administrative review with respect to the companies listed in Appendix 
I, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

administrative review with respect to one mandatory respondent, 
Harmoni.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 
(the Act) and 19 CFR 351.214.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 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 https://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete

the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached 
as Appendix II to this notice.

China-Wide Entity

    Commerce's policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide 
entity applies to this administrative review.\7\ Under this policy, the 
China-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically 
requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because

this notice is published in the Federal Register, and rebuttal briefs, 
limited to issues raised in case briefs, may be submitted no later than

parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding 
are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the

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

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310, any interested party may request a 
hearing within 30 days of publication of this notice. Hearing requests 
should contain the following information: (1) The party's name, 
address, and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) 
a list of the issues to be discussed. Oral presentations will be 
limited to issues raised in the 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.
    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this review, 
including the results of its 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.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce will determine, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(b). For the companies for which this review is 
rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the 
cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of 
entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(l)(i). Commerce will direct CBP to assess rates 
based on the per-unit (i.e., per kilogram) amount on each entry of the 
subject merchandise during the POR. Commerce intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 35 days after the publication date of 
the final results of review.
    Commerce announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME 
cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for merchandise that 
was not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by an exporter 
individually examined during this review, but that entered under the 
case number of that exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined 
exporter's cash deposit rate), Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate 
such entries at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if Commerce determines 
that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject 
merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter's 
case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the 
China-wide rate.\12\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this review 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) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above, the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established in these final results 
of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash 
deposit will be required for that company); (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed 
above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to 
be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) 
for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not been 
found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the China-wide rate of 4.71 U.S. dollars per kilogram; and (4) for all 
non-

[[Page 67913]]

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 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

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 prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.213(h) and 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: November 23, 2021.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
