Oral presentations at the hearing will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be notified of the time and date for the hearing.11 An electronically-filed document must be received successfully in its entirety by ACCESS by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the established deadline. Note that Commerce has temporarily modified certain of its requirements for serving documents containing business proprietary information, until further notice.12 Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, unless otherwise extended.13 Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.14 If the weighted average dumping margin for Dillinger is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).15 8 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2). 19 CFR 351.303. 10 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 11 See 19 CFR 351.310(d). 12 See Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID–19, 85 FR 17006 (March 26, 2020) (Temporary Rule); and Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID–19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 41363 (July 10, 2020). 13 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. 14 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). 15 In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 9 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:50 Feb 03, 2022 Jkt 256001 If the weighted-average dumping margin for Dillinger is zero or de minimis in the final results, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results, we will instruct CBP not to assess antidumping duties on any such entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.16 Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.17 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 deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the exporter listed above will be equal to the weightedaverage dumping margin established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific cash deposit rate published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the less-than-fair-value Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 16 Id. at 8102. 17 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Notification to Importers This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

For further information, see ‘‘Preliminary Intent to Rescind Administrative Review, in Part’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Methodology Commerce is conducting this CVD administrative 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, Commerce preliminarily determines that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution by an ‘‘authority’’ that confers a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.9 For a full description of the methodology underlying our preliminary conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The list of topics discussed in the 9 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. E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1 6502 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 24 / Friday, February 4, 2022 / Notices Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included at Appendix I. Preliminary Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review There are 230 companies for which a review was requested and not rescinded but were not selected as mandatory respondents. The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not directly address the establishment of rates to be applied to companies not selected for individual examination where Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(e)(2) of the Act. However, Commerce normally determines the rates for non-selected companies in reviews in a manner that is consistent with section 705(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation. Section 705(c)(5)(A)(i) of the Act instructs Commerce, as a general rule, to calculate an all-others rate equal to the weighted average of the countervailable subsidy rates established for exporters and/or producers individually examined, excluding any zero, de minimis, or rates based entirely on facts available. In this review, none of the rates for the respondents were zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available. Therefore, for the POR, we are assigning to the non-selected companies an average of the subsidy rates calculated for the companies that were selected as respondents in the administrative review. For further information on the calculation of the non-selected rate, see ‘‘Preliminary Ad Valorem Rate for NonSelected Companies under Review’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. For a list of the non-selected companies, see Appendix II to this notice. lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Preliminary Results of Review For the period January 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020, we preliminarily determine the following estimated countervailable subsidy rates: 10 Commerce finds the following companies to be cross-owned with Canfor Corporation: Canadian Forest Products., Ltd. and Canfor Wood Products Marketing, Ltd. 11 Commerce finds the following companies to be cross-owned with J.D.

Normally, Commerce verifies information using standard procedures, including an on-site examination of original accounting, financial, and sales documentation. However, due to current travel restrictions in response to the global COVID–19 pandemic, Commerce is unable to conduct on-site verification in this review. Accordingly, we intend to verify the information relied upon for the final results through alternative means in lieu of an on-site verification. Public Comment Case briefs or other written comments may be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.15 A timeline for the submission of case and rebuttal briefs and written comments will be provided to interested parties at a later date. Note that Commerce has temporarily modified certain of its requirements for serving documents containing business proprietary information until further notice.16 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c) and (d)(2), parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this review are requested to submit for each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.

Assessment Rates In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), Commerce has preliminarily assigned the subsidy rates as indicated above. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, countervailing duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, Commerce will instruct CBP to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period January 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(I)(i). Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 41 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 356.8(a). 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 statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication). Cash Deposit Requirements Pursuant to section 751(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce intends, upon E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 24 / Friday, February 4, 2022 / Notices publication of the final results, to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties in the amounts indicated above for each of the respective companies listed above and in Appendix II with regard to shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this review. For all non-reviewed companies, we will instruct CBP 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 deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Interested Parties These preliminary 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)(4).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Frank Schmitt or Fred Baker, AD/CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4880 or (202) 482–2924, respectively. AGENCY: Background On December 27, 2021, Commerce disclosed its calculations for the Final Results 1 to interested parties.2 On 1 See Common Alloy Aluminum Sheet from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Final Successor-In-Interest Determination, and Final Determination of No Shipments; 2018–2020, 86 FR 74066 (December 29, 2021) (Final Results). 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Common Alloy Aluminum Sheet from the People’s Republic of China, 2018– PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 January 3, 2022, the domestic industry 3 submitted an allegation of ministerial errors in the Final Results.4 No other party made an allegation of ministerial errors or submitted a reply to the domestic industry’s ministerial error allegation. Legal Framework Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), defines a ‘‘ministerial error’’ as including ‘‘errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other unintentional error which the administering authority considers ministerial.’’ With respect to final results of administrative reviews, 19 CFR 351.224(e) provides that Commerce ‘‘will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any ministerial error by amending . . . the final results of review . . .’’ Ministerial Error Commerce agrees with the domestic industry that Commerce made inadvertent, unintentional errors in the Final Results within the meaning of section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f) with respect to its calculation of financial ratios from the financial statement of Alcomet A.B. used in the calculation of normal value for respondent, Jiangsu Alcha Aluminum Co., Ltd., Baotou Alcha Aluminum Co., Ltd., and Alcha International Holdings Limited (collectively, Alcha). Accordingly, Commerce determines that, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f), it made ministerial errors in the Final Results. For a complete discussion of the ministerial error allegation, as well as Commerce’s analysis, see the accompanying Ministerial Error Memorandum.5 The Ministerial Error Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and 2020: Final Results Disclosure,’’ dated December 27, 2021. 3 The domestic industry is the Aluminum Association Common Alloy Aluminum Sheet Trade Enforcement Working Group and its individual members. 4 See Domestic Industry’s Letter, ‘‘1st Administrative Review of the Antidumping Order on Common Alloy Aluminum Sheet from the People’s Republic of China—Domestic Industry’s Comments Identifying a Ministerial Error in Final Results,’’ dated January 3, 2022. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Common Alloy Aluminum Sheet from the People’s Republic of China: Ministerial Error Allegation in the Final Results,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (Ministerial Error Memorandum).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 3, 2018, Commerce published in the Federal Register the 
countervailing duty (CVD) order on softwood lumber from Canada.\1\ 
Several interested parties requested that Commerce conduct an 
administrative review of the Order and, on March 4, 2021, Commerce 
published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of the third 
administrative review.\2\ On May 5, 2021, we published in the Federal 
Register an additional notice of initiation of an administrative review 
for two companies that were inadvertently excluded from the March 4, 
2021 notice.\3\ On April 20, 2021, Commerce selected the following 
producers and exporters as the mandatory respondents in the 
administrative review: Canfor Corporation, Resolute FP Canada Inc., and 
West Fraser Mills Ltd.\4\ On September 24, 2021, Commerce selected J.D. 
Irving, Limited as a voluntary respondent in the administrative

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    On June 2, 2021, the petitioner \8\ timely withdrew its request for 
an administrative review of Roland Boulanger & Cie Ltee (Roland). No 
other party requested a review of Roland. Accordingly, we are 
rescinding this review, in part, with respect to Roland, pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1). For further information, see ``Partial Recission of

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

Preliminary Intent To Rescind Administrative Review, in Part

    Based on our analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
data and comments received from interested parties, we preliminarily 
determine that the following 27 companies had no reviewable shipments, 
sales, or entries of subject merchandise during the POR:

AA Trading Ltd.
Blanchette & Blanchette Inc.
Canada Pallet Corp.
Careau Bois Inc.
Cedarcoast Lumber Products
Commonwealth Plywood Co. Ltd.
CWP--Montreal inc.
Delta Cedar Specialties Ltd.
Glandell Enterprises Inc.
Goldband Shake & Shingle Ltd.
Greenwell Resources Inc.
Imperial Cedar Products, Ltd.
J.H. Huscroft Ltd.
Langevin Forest Products Inc.
Les Produits Forestiers D&G Lt[eacute]e (aka, D&G Forest Products 
Ltd.)

Western Timber Products, Inc.
Weston Forest Products Inc.
WWW Timber Products Ltd.

    Absent any evidence of shipments placed on the record, pursuant to 
19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we intend to rescind the administrative review of 
these companies in the final results of review. For further 
information, see ``Preliminary Intent to Rescind Administrative Review, 
in Part'' in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this CVD administrative 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, Commerce 
preliminarily determines that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial 
contribution by an ``authority'' that confers a benefit to the 
recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.\9\ For a full description 
of the methodology underlying our preliminary conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The list of topics discussed in the

[[Page 6502]]

Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included at Appendix I.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    There are 230 companies for which a review was requested and not 
rescinded but were not selected as mandatory respondents. The statute 
and Commerce's regulations do not directly address the establishment of 
rates to be applied to companies not selected for individual 
examination where Commerce limits its examination in an administrative 
review pursuant to section 777A(e)(2) of the Act. However, Commerce 
normally determines the rates for non-selected companies in reviews in 
a manner that is consistent with section 705(c)(5) of the Act, which 
provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an 
investigation.
    Section 705(c)(5)(A)(i) of the Act instructs Commerce, as a general 
rule, to calculate an all-others rate equal to the weighted average of 
the countervailable subsidy rates established for exporters and/or 
producers individually examined, excluding any zero, de minimis, or 
rates based entirely on facts available. In this review, none of the 
rates for the respondents were zero, de minimis, or based entirely on 
facts available. Therefore, for the POR, we are assigning to the non-
selected companies an average of the subsidy rates calculated for the 
companies that were selected as respondents in the administrative 
review.
    For further information on the calculation of the non-selected 
rate, see ``Preliminary Ad Valorem Rate for Non-Selected Companies 
under Review'' in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. For a list of 
the non-selected companies, see Appendix II to this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ Commerce finds the following companies to be cross-owned 
with Canfor Corporation: Canadian Forest Products., Ltd. and Canfor 
Wood Products Marketing, Ltd.
    \11\ Commerce finds the following companies to be cross-owned 
with J.D. Irving, Limited: Miramichi Timber Holdings Limited, The 
New Brunswick Railway Company, Rothesay Paper Holdings Ltd., and St. 
George Pulp & Paper Limited.
    \12\ Commerce finds the following companies to be cross-owned 
with Resolute FP Canada Inc.: Produits Forestiers Maurice SEC. and

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

Preliminary Results of Review

    For the period January 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020, we 
preliminarily determine the following estimated countervailable subsidy 
rates:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                Subsidy
                                                                Rate ad

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Canfor Corporation and its cross-owned affiliates \10\......        1.83
J.D. Irving, Limited and its cross-owned affiliates \11\....        2.33
Resolute FP Canada Inc. and its cross-owned affiliates \12\.       15.48
West Fraser Mills Ltd. and its cross-owned affiliates \13\..        8.46
Non-Selected Companies......................................        6.88
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose to parties to this proceeding the 
calculations performed in these preliminary results within five days of 
publication of this notice in the Federal Register.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.224(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i)(3) of the Act, Commerce intends to 
verify the information relied upon for its final results. Normally, 
Commerce verifies information using standard procedures, including an 
on-site examination of original accounting, financial, and sales 
documentation. However, due to current travel restrictions in response 
to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Commerce is unable to conduct on-site 
verification in this review. Accordingly, we intend to verify the 
information relied upon for the final results through alternative means 
in lieu of an on-site verification.

Public Comment

    Case briefs or other written comments may be submitted to the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.\15\ A timeline for 
the submission of case and rebuttal briefs and written comments will be 
provided to interested parties at a later date. Note that Commerce has 
temporarily modified certain of its requirements for serving documents 
containing business proprietary information until further notice.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c) and (d).
    \16\ See Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements 
Due to COVID-19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 29615 (May 18, 
2020); see also Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements 
Due to COVID-19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 41363 (July 
10, 2020).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c) and (d)(2), parties who submit case 
briefs or rebuttal briefs in this review are requested to submit for 
each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the 
argument; and (3) a table of authorities.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c)(2), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, limited to issues raised in the case and rebuttal 
briefs, must do so within 30 days of publication of these preliminary 
results by submitting a written request to the Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance using ACCESS. Requests should contain the 
party's name, address, and telephone number; the number of 
participants; and a list of the issues to be discussed. If a request 
for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at a time 
and date to be determined. Parties should confirm the date and time of 
the hearing two days before the scheduled date. Parties are reminded 
that all briefs and hearing requests must be filed electronically using 
ACCESS and received successfully in their entirety by 5:00 p.m. Eastern 
Time on the due date.

Final Results

    Unless the deadline is extended pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act, Commerce intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the 
issues raised by parties in their comments, within 120 days after the 
date of publication of these preliminary results.

Assessment Rates

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), Commerce has 
preliminarily assigned the subsidy rates as indicated above. Pursuant 
to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, upon issuance of the final results, 
Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, countervailing duties 
on all appropriate entries covered by this review. For the companies 
for which this review is rescinded, Commerce will instruct CBP to 
assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries at a rate equal 
to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties required at the 
time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during 
the period January 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(I)(i). Commerce intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP no earlier than 41 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review in the Federal 
Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 356.8(a). 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 statutory injunction has 
expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce intends, upon

[[Page 6503]]

publication of the final results, to instruct CBP to collect cash 
deposits of estimated countervailing duties in the amounts indicated 
above for each of the respective companies listed above and in Appendix 
II with regard to shipments of subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review. For all non-reviewed 
companies, we will instruct CBP 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 deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Interested Parties

    These preliminary 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)(4).
