SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On November 23, 2021, Commerce published in the Federal Register the preliminary determination in the LTFV investigation of raw honey from Brazil.1 Also on this same date, one of the mandatory respondents in the case, Supermel,2 filed a timely ministerial 1 See Raw Honey from Brazil: Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less-ThanFair-Value Investigation, Postponement of Final Determination, and Extension of Provisional Measures, 86 FR 66533 (November 23, 2021) (Preliminary Determination), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum (PDM). 2 Supermel is comprised of two entities: Apia ´ rio Diamante Comercial Exportadora Ltda and Apia´rio Diamante Produc ¸a˜o e Comercial de Mel Ltda. See Memorandum, ‘‘Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of Raw Honey from Brazil: Preliminary Affiliation and Single Entity Memorandum for Apia´rio Diamante Comercial Exportadora Ltda and Apia´rio Diamante Produc ¸a˜o e Comercial de Mel Ltda,’’ (Single Entity Memorandum) dated November 17, 2021. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 error allegation concerning the Preliminary Determination.3 Period of Investigation The period of investigation is April 1, 2020, through March 31, 2021. Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is raw honey from Brazil. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see the appendix. Significant Ministerial Error In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), Commerce ‘‘will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination. . .’’ A ministerial error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) 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.’’ A significant ministerial error is defined as a ministerial error, the correction of which, singly or in combination with other errors, would result in: (1) A change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the weightedaverage dumping margin calculated in the original preliminary determination; or (2) a difference between a weightedaverage dumping margin of zero or de minimis and a weighted-average dumping margin of greater than de minimis or vice versa.4 Ministerial Error Allegations Supermel timely alleged that Commerce made a ministerial error involving the calculation of Supermel’s general and administrative (G&A) expenses and interest expenses. Supermel alleged that Commerce, in calculating these expenses, treated the company’s reported per-kilogram figures as expense ratios, rather than as absolute amounts, and then it used the resulting expenses in its sales-belowcost test and constructed value calculations; Supermel alleges that this inflated the preliminary weightedaverage dumping margin calculation for Supermel.5 After analyzing this allegation, we determine that we made a significant ministerial error in the Preliminary Determination with respect 3 See Supermel’s Letter, ‘‘Anti-Dumping Duty Investigation of Raw Honey from Brazil: Supermel’s Ministerial Error Comments,’’ dated November 23, 2021 (Supermel’s Ministerial Error Allegations). 4 See 19 CFR 351.224(g)(1) and (2). 5 See Supermel’s Ministerial Error Allegations at 2–3.

    Whereas, the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Act provides for ``. . . the

been processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; 
and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the
