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.

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).

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in interested parties' case briefs are addressed 
in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by 
parties to which Commerce responded in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum is provided in Appendix I to this notice. The Issues and 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically

version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly 
at https://access.trade.gov/public/FRNoticesListLayout.aspx.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on the comments received and record evidence, we made certain 
changes from the Preliminary Results with respect to the net 
countervailable subsidy rate calculated for Xiashun and assigned to 
companies not selected for individual examination in this review. These 
changes are explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Methodology

    Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For each 
of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we find that there is a 
subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that gives 
rise to a benefit to the recipient,

[[Page 73250]]

and that the subsidy is specific.\6\ For a full description of the 
methodology underlying all of Commerce's conclusions, including any 
determination that relied upon the use of adverse facts available 
pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, see the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding 
financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Companies Not Selected for Individual Examination

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), Commerce calculated a 
countervailable subsidy rate for mandatory respondent Xiashun. Because 
the rate calculated for Xiashun, the only cooperating mandatory 
respondent, is above de minimis and not based entirely on facts 
available, we assigned this rate to other companies subject to this 
administrative review but not selected for individual examination. This 
is consistent with the methodology that we use in an investigation to 
establish the all-others rate, pursuant to section 705(c)(5)(A) of the 
Act.

Final Results of Administrative Review

    We determine that, for the period January 1, 2019, through December 
31, 2019, the following net countervailable subsidy rates exist:

Assessment Rate

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), Commerce will determine, and U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, countervailing duties 
on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with 
the final results of this review, for the above-listed companies at the 
applicable ad valorem assessment rates listed. Consistent with its 
recent notice,\9\ 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).

Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and

Cash Deposit Rates

    In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce intends 
to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing 
duties in the amounts shown for each of the companies listed above. For 
all non-reviewed firms, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect 
cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at the most recent 
company-specific or all-others rate applicable to the company, as 
appropriate. These cash deposits, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a final 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). Timely 
written notification of the return/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 sanctionable 
violation.

Notice to Interested Parties

    These final results are issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
