Download as PDF jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 5780 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 22 / Wednesday, February 2, 2022 / Notices Background The NACMCF was established in 1988, in response to a recommendation of the National Academy of Sciences for an interagency approach to microbiological criteria for foods, and in response to a recommendation of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations, as expressed in the Rural Development, Agriculture, and Related Agencies Appropriation Bill for fiscal year 1988. The charter for the NACMCF is available for viewing on the FSIS internet web page at https:// www.fsis.usda.gov/policy/advisorycommittees/national-advisorycommittee-microbiological-criteriafoods-nacmcf. A change was made in the charter to replace ‘consumer group’ with ‘consumer organization’ in reference to the representative on the Committee providing the viewpoint of consumers. This change addresses feedback received during the NACMCF membership appointment process for the consumer representative on the Committee to be a member of a consumer organization. The NACMCF provides scientific advice and recommendations to the Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of Health and Human Services on public health issues relative to the safety and wholesomeness of the U.S. food supply, including development of microbiological criteria and review and evaluation of epidemiological and risk assessment data and methodologies for assessing microbiological hazards in foods. The Committee also provides scientific advice and recommendations to the Departments of Commerce and Defense. The Committee reports to the Secretary of Agriculture through the Under Secretary for Food Safety, the Committee’s Chair, and to the Secretary of Health and Human Services through the Assistant Secretary for Health, the Committee’s Vice-Chair. Currently, Ms. Sandra Eskin, Deputy Under Secretary for Food Safety, USDA, is the Committee Chair; Dr. Susan T. Mayne, Director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), is the Vice-Chair; and Mr. John J. Jarosh, FSIS, is the Director of the NACMCF Secretariat and Designated Federal Officer.

In addition, a complete 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 our analysis of the case and rebuttal briefs and the evidence on the record, we made certain changes from the Preliminary Results. These changes are explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Companies Not Selected for Individual Review Section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act states that for companies not investigated, in general, we will determine an all-others rate by weight-averaging the countervailable subsidy rates established for each of the companies individually investigated, excluding zero and de minimis rates or any rates based solely on the facts available. For the final results of this review, we determine that only Hyundai RB Co., Ltd. (Hyundai RB) received countervailable subsidies that are above de minimis in both 2018 and 2019. However, because the 2018 subsidy rate is based entirely on facts available, we are applying the 2019 subsidy rate calculated for Hyundai RB to the nonselected companies for 2018 and 2019, as it is the only rate calculated for a mandatory respondent that was above de minimis and not based entirely on facts available.5 For a list of the 19 companies for which a review was requested, and which were not selected as mandatory respondents or found to be cross-owned with a mandatory respondent, see Appendix II to this notice. Final Results of Administrative Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated an individual net countervailable subsidy rate for Hyundai RB and SeAH Steel Corporation. Commerce determines that, during the POR, the net countervailable subsidy rates for the producers/ exporters under review are as follows: Subsidy rate for June 29 to December 31, 2018 (percent ad valorem) Company Hyundai RB Co., Ltd. ...................................................................................................................................

    All issues raised in interested parties' briefs are addressed in 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues addressed is 
attached to this notice at Appendix I. The Issues and Decision 
Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via 
Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the case and rebuttal briefs and the 
evidence on the record, we made certain changes from the Preliminary 
Results. These changes are explained in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.

Companies Not Selected for Individual Review

    Section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act states that for companies not 
investigated, in general, we will determine an all-others rate by 
weight-averaging the countervailable subsidy rates established for each 
of the companies individually investigated, excluding zero and de 
minimis rates or any rates based solely on the facts available. For the 
final results of this review, we determine that only Hyundai RB Co., 
Ltd. (Hyundai RB) received countervailable subsidies that are above de 
minimis in both 2018 and 2019. However, because the 2018 subsidy rate 
is based entirely on facts available, we are applying the 2019 subsidy 
rate calculated for Hyundai RB to the non-selected companies for 2018 
and 2019, as it is the only rate calculated for a mandatory respondent 
that was above de minimis and not based entirely on facts available.\5\ 
For a list of the 19 companies for which a review was requested, and 
which were not selected as mandatory respondents or found to be cross-
owned with a mandatory respondent, see Appendix II to this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 7.
    \6\ Commerce has found the following companies to be cross-owned 
with SeAH Steel Corporation: SeAH Holdings Corporation and ESAB SeAH 
Corporation. SeAH Steel Corporation's subsidy rate applies to each 
of its cross-owned companies.
    \7\ See Appendix II.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Administrative Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated an 
individual net countervailable subsidy rate for Hyundai RB and SeAH 
Steel Corporation. Commerce determines that, during the POR, the net 
countervailable subsidy rates for the producers/exporters under review 
are as follows:

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

Assessment Rates

    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 for the corresponding 
time period (i.e., June 29, 2018, to October 26, 2018, and April 19, 
2019, to December 31, 2019). For entries made during the gap period 
(i.e., on or after October 27, 2018, through April 18, 2019), we will 
continue to instruct CBP to liquidate the entries without regard to 
countervailing duties pursuant to section 703(d) of the Act. We intend 
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 Instructions

    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 respective companies listed 
above for 2019, the second year covered by the period of the review, on 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of

publication of the final results of this administrative review.\9\ For 
all non-reviewed firms subject to the Order, we will instruct CBP to 
continue to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at 
the most recent company-specific rate or the all-others rate (9.29 
percent), as appropriate.\10\ These cash deposit requirements, 
effective upon publication of these final results, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.
