SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending its notice of final results of the 2018 administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on multilayered wood flooring (wood flooring) from the People’s Republic of China (China). DATES: Applicable December 1, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dennis McClure, AD/CVD Operations, Office VIII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–5973. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Background On October 20, 2021, Commerce issued the final results of the 2018 administrative review of the CVD order on wood flooring from China, which was subsequently published in the Federal Register.1 On October 25, 2021, Dalian Shengyu Science and Technology Development Co., Ltd. (Dalian Shengyu) requested that Commerce correct a typographical error, stating that Commerce did not include the complete spelling of its name in the Final Results, which is necessary to ensure proper administration by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).2 On October 25, 2021, mandatory respondent Jiangsu Senmao Bamboo and Wood Industry Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu Senmao) submitted a ministerial error 1 See Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2018, 86 FR 59362 (October 27, 2021) (Final Results), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (Final Results IDM). 2 See Dalian Shengyu’s Letter, ‘‘Comments for the Final Results and Draft Liquidation Instructions,’’ dated October 25, 2021. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Nov 30, 2021 Jkt 256001 allegation alleging that Commerce did not include the EU market price for pine plywood in its benchmark price for plywood as it did in the preliminary results.3 On October 27, 2021, the petitioner American Manufacturers of Multilayered Wood Flooring submitted ministerial allegations alleging that Commerce incorrectly calculated the fiberboard benchmark price for Jiangsu Senmao and should not have included domestic benchmark prices in the plywood benchmark calculation for both Jiangsu Senmao and the other mandatory respondent, Riverside Plywood Corporation and its crossowned affiliate Baroque Timber Industries.4 The petitioner also alleged that Commerce should recalculate the non-selected respondent subsidy rate based on any corrected calculations. On November 1, 2021, Jiangsu Senmao replied to the petitioner’s ministerial error allegations regarding the inclusion of domestic pricing data in the plywood benchmark calculation.5 Scope of the Order The product covered by the Order 6 is multilayered wood flooring from China. For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum in the Final Results.7 Ministerial Errors Section 351.224(e) of Commerce’s regulations provides that Commerce will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any ministerial error by amending the final results of the review. Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.224(f) define a ‘‘ministerial error’’ as an error ‘‘in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.’’ 3 See Jiangsu Senmao’s Letter, ‘‘Ministerial Error Comments,’’ dated October 25, 2021. 4 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Ministerial Error Allegations,’’ dated October 27, 2021. 5 See Jiangsu Senmao’s Letter, ‘‘Reply to Ministerial Error Allegations of American Manufacturers of Multilayered Wood Flooring,’’ dated November 1, 2021. 6 See Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 76 FR 76693 (December 8, 2011) (Order); see also Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Amended Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 77 FR 5484 (February 3, 2012) (Amended Order); and Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Final Clarification of the Scope of the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 82 FR 27799 (June 19, 2017). 7 Final Results IDM at 4–5. PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68219 In light of the ministerial error comments, we reviewed the relevant record information and determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (f), that we made the following ministerial errors in the Final Results: 8 (1) We incorrectly removed the EU market price for pine plywood from the plywood benchmark price calculation used in Jiangsu Senmao’s benefit calculation for the plywood for less than adequate remuneration (LTAR) program. Therefore, we have corrected Jiangsu Senmao’s plywood benefit calculation in these amended final results, and we will incorporate the Jiangsu Senmao’s corrected total subsidy rate in the amended cash deposit instructions and liquidation instructions. (2) We incorrectly calculated the total fiberboard benchmark price (inclusive of freight) used in Jiangsu Senmao’s benefit calculation for fiberboard for LTAR program by adding benchmark prices denominated in Chinese renminbi and freight costs denominated in U.S. dollars without making the necessary currency conversions. Therefore, we have corrected Jiangsu Senmao’s fiberboard benefit calculation in these amended final results, and we will incorporate Jiangsu Senmao’s corrected total subsidy rate in the amended cash deposit instructions and liquidation instructions. (3) Finally, we inadvertently misspelled Dalian Shengyu’s name in the Final Results and draft cash deposit and liquidation instructions. Therefore, we have corrected the spelling of Dalian Shengyu’s name in these amended final results and in the CBP cash deposit and liquidation instructions. With regard to the petitioner’s allegation that we erred in including domestic prices in the plywood benchmark price, we find no ministerial error because we made a methodological decision to include such prices in the plywood benchmark calculation. Amended Final Results of Review As a result of correcting the alleged ministerial errors noted above, we determine that the following countervailable subsidy rates exist for the POR. Producer/exporter Subsidy rate (percent) Jiangsu Senmao Bamboo and Wood Industry Co., Ltd .............................. 8 See Memorandum, ‘‘Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People’s Republic of China: Allegations of Ministerial Errors in the Final Results,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice.
