We determine that ICF Cable and Jin Tiong Electrical Materials Manufacturer PTE, Limited (Jin Tiong) are not eligible for a separate rate, and, therefore, are part of the China-wide entity.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background On September 2, 2021, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) published its preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on aluminum wire and cable from the People’s Republic of China (China).1 The domestic interested parties in this review are Encore Wire Corporation and Southwire Company, LLC (collectively, the petitioners for the original less-thanfair-value investigation). The companies subject to this administrative review are ICF Cable and Jin Tiong. A complete summary of the events that occurred since publication of the Preliminary Determination, as well as a full discussion of the issues raised by parties for this final determination, may be found in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.2 Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are aluminum wire and cable from China.

In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at https://access.trade.gov/ public/FRNoticesListLayout.aspx. Final Results of Review We made no changes to the Preliminary Results and continue to find that both ICF Cable and Jin Tiong are not eligible for a separate rate because neither company established its eligibility for a separate rate. Therefore, we continue to find both ICF Cable and Jin Tiong to be part of the China-wide entity. In this administrative review, no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, and Commerce did not initiate a review of the China-wide entity. Because no review of the China-wide entity has been initiated, the Chinawide entity’s entries are not subject to the review, and the weighted-average dumping margin applicable to the China-wide entity is not subject to change as a result of this review. The existing weighted-average dumping margin, and, therefore, the applicable cash deposit rate and assessment rate for antidumping duties, is 52.79 percent, the rate established in the final determination of the less-than-fair-value investigation.3 Disclosure and Public Comment Normally, Commerce discloses the calculations used in its analysis to parties in a review within five days of the date of publication of the notice of final results, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, in this review, there are no calculations on the record to disclose. 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).

Aluminum Wire and Cable From the People's Republic of China: 
Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2019-2020

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on aluminum 
wire and cable from the People's Republic of China (China) covering the 
period June 5, 2019, through November 30, 2020. We determine that ICF 
Cable and Jin Tiong Electrical Materials Manufacturer PTE, Limited (Jin 
Tiong) are not eligible for a separate rate, and, therefore, are part 
of the China-wide entity.

DATES: Applicable December 27, 2021.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sean Carey, AD/CVD Operations, Office 
VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, 
DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-3964.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 2, 2021, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) 
published its preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on aluminum wire and cable from the People's 
Republic of China (China).\1\ The domestic interested parties in this 
review are Encore Wire Corporation and Southwire Company, LLC 
(collectively, the petitioners for the original less-than-fair-value 
investigation). The companies subject to this administrative review are 
ICF Cable and Jin Tiong. A complete summary of the events that occurred 
since publication of the Preliminary Determination, as well as a full 
discussion of the issues raised by parties for this final 
determination, may be found in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.\2\

    \1\ See Aluminum Wire and Cable from the People's Republic of 
China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Administrative Review; 
2019-2020, 86 FR 49306 (September 2, 2021) (Preliminary Results).
    \2\ See Memorandum, ``Issues and Decision Memorandum for the 
Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Aluminum 
Wire and Cable from the People's Republic of China; 2019-2020,'' 
dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues 
and Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are aluminum wire and cable from 
China. For a full description of the scope of the order, see ``Scope of 
the Order,'' in the appendix of the Preliminary Results.

Analysis of Comments Received

    We addressed all issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs 
submitted by parties in this review in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice. The Issues and 
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. A list of topics 
discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is included as an 
appendix to this notice. In addition, a complete version of the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at https://access.trade.gov/public/FRNoticesListLayout.aspx.

Final Results of Review

    We made no changes to the Preliminary Results and continue to find 
that both ICF Cable and Jin Tiong are not eligible for a separate rate 
because neither company established its eligibility for a separate 
rate. Therefore, we continue to find both ICF Cable and Jin Tiong to be 
part of the China-wide entity.
    In this administrative review, no party requested a review of the 
China-wide entity, and Commerce did not initiate a review of the China-
wide entity. Because no review of the China-wide entity has been 
initiated, the China-wide entity's entries are not subject to the 
review, and the weighted-average dumping margin applicable to the 
China-wide entity is not subject to change as a result of this review. 
The existing weighted-average dumping margin, and, therefore, the 
applicable cash deposit rate and assessment rate for antidumping 
duties, is 52.79 percent, the rate established in the final 
determination of the less-than-fair-value investigation.\3\

China: Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Orders, 84 FR 70496, 
70497 (December 23, 2019).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure and Public Comment

    Normally, Commerce discloses the calculations used in its analysis 
to parties in a review within five days of the date of publication of 
the notice of final results, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). 
However, in this review, there are no calculations on the record to 
disclose.

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 ICF Cable and Jin Tiong are not eligible for 
a separate rate and are part

[[Page 73252]]

of the China-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem 
assessment rate for antidumping duties of 52.79 percent to all entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR that were exported by ICF Cable 
and Jin Tiong.
    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 upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative 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 section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously 
investigated or reviewed Chinese or non-Chinese exporters that received 
a separate rate in a prior completed segment of this proceeding, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific 
rate; (2) 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 the cash deposit rate for the China-wide entity (i.e., 52.79 
percent); and (3) for all non-Chinese exporters of subject merchandise 
that have not received their own separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied that 
non-Chinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

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

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as the only 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(a)(3), 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 violation which is subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, 
and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
