Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we preliminarily find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and the subsidy is specific.4 Administrative Review: Certain Cold-Drawn Mechanical Tubing of Carbon and Alloy Steel from India; 2020,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 4 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.

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 777A(e)(2) of the Act provides that ‘‘the individual countervailable subsidy rates determined under subparagraph (A) shall be used to determine the all-others rate under section 705(c)(5) {of the Act}.’’ 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. Accordingly, to determine the rate for companies not selected for individual examination, Commerce’s practice is to weight average the net subsidy rates for the selected mandatory companies, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.5 We preliminarily determine that Goodluck India Limited (Goodluck) and Tube Investments of India Ltd. (TII) received countervailing subsidies that are above de minimis and are not based entirely on facts available. Therefore, we preliminarily determine to apply the weighted-average of the net subsidy rates calculated for Goodluck and TII using publicly ranged sales data submitted by those respondents to the non-selected companies.6 The following companies are 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: KLT Automotive and Tubular Products Limited; Metamorphosis Engitech India Private 5 See, e.g., Certain Pasta from Italy: Final Results of the 13th (2008) Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 37386, 37387 (June 29, 2010). 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘Calculation of Subsidy Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review,’’ dated February 25, 2022.

If the assessment rate calculated in the final results is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate all appropriate entries without regard to countervailing duties. 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 Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties in the amounts indicated above, except, where the rate calculated in the final results is de minimis, no cash deposit will be required on shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final 7 Entries for Goodluck India Limited may have been made under the following company names: Goodluck India Limited (formerly Good Luck Steel Tubes Limited); Good Luck Steel Tubes Limited Good Luck House; and Good Luck Industries. 8 Tube Investments of India Ltd. is also known as Tube Investments of India Limited.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an antidumping or countervailing duty VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:23 Mar 02, 2022 Jkt 256001 order, finding, or suspended investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), may request, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (Commerce) conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation. All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by Commerce discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting date. Respondent Selection In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 35 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. Commerce invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review. In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, Commerce finds that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, Commerce will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of a review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 company subject to a review, if Commerce determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to: (a) Identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed; and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete a Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of a proceeding where Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that requests a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that Commerce may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. Determinations by Commerce to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis. Deadline for Particular Market Situation Allegation Section 504 of the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015 amended the Act by adding the concept of particular market situation (PMS) for purposes of constructed value under section 773(e) of the Act.1 Section 773(e) of the Act states that ‘‘if a particular market situation exists such that the cost of materials and fabrication or other processing of any kind does not accurately reflect the cost of production in the ordinary course of trade, the administering authority may use another calculation methodology under this subtitle or any other calculation methodology.’’ When an interested party submits a PMS allegation pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce will respond to such a submission consistent with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(2)(v). 1 See Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015, Public Law 114–27, 129 Stat. 362 (2015).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 1, 2021, Commerce published a notice of initiation of an 
administrative review of the countervailing duty order on cold-drawn 
mechanical tubing from India.\1\ On October 5, 2021, Commerce extended 
the time period for issuing these preliminary results by 117 days, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act).\2\ The revised deadline for these preliminary 
results is now February 25, 2022.

(Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the Order is cold-drawn mechanical 
tubing from India. For a complete description of the scope of the 
Order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found 
countervailable, we preliminarily find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a 
financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, 
and the subsidy is specific.\4\

[[Page 12085]]

For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, 
see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ 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 Review

    The Act and Commerce's regulations do not directly address the 
subsidy rate 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 777A(e)(2) of the Act provides that ``the 
individual countervailable subsidy rates determined under subparagraph 
(A) shall be used to determine the all-others rate under section 
705(c)(5) {of the Act{time} .'' 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.
    Accordingly, to determine the rate for companies not selected for 
individual examination, Commerce's practice is to weight average the 
net subsidy rates for the selected mandatory companies, excluding rates 
that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.\5\ We 
preliminarily determine that Goodluck India Limited (Goodluck) and Tube 
Investments of India Ltd. (TII) received countervailing subsidies that 
are above de minimis and are not based entirely on facts available. 
Therefore, we preliminarily determine to apply the weighted-average of 
the net subsidy rates calculated for Goodluck and TII using publicly 
ranged sales data submitted by those respondents to the non-selected 
companies.\6\ The following companies are 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: KLT Automotive and 
Tubular Products Limited; Metamorphosis Engitech India Private Limited; 
and Pennar Industries Limited India.

Assessment Rate

    Consistent with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, upon issuance of 
the final results, Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, countervailing duties on all 
appropriate entries in accordance with the final results of this 
review. If the assessment rate calculated in the final results is zero 
or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate all appropriate 
entries without regard to countervailing duties. 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

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce intends to 
instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing 
duties in the amounts indicated above, except, where the rate 
calculated in the final results is de minimis, no cash deposit will be 
required 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 review. 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 deposit 
instructions, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further
