The Preliminary 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. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at https://access.trade.gov/public/ FRNoticesListLayout.aspx. Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is lemon juice from South Africa. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see Appendix I. Scope Comments In accordance with the preamble to Commerce’s regulations,4 the Initiation Notice set aside a period of time for parties to raise issues regarding product coverage (i.e., scope).5 No interested party commented on the scope of the investigation as it appeared in the Initiation Notice. Commerce is not preliminarily modifying the scope language as it appeared in the Initiation Notice. See the scope in Appendix I to this notice. Methodology Commerce is conducting this investigation in accordance with section 731 of the Act. Commerce has calculated export prices in accordance with section 772(a) of the Act. Normal value (NV) is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. Furthermore, pursuant to section 776(a) and (b) of the Act, Commerce has preliminarily relied upon total facts otherwise available, with adverse inferences, for Granor Passi (Pty) Ltd. (Granor Passi), and partial facts otherwise available, with adverse inferences, for Cape Fruit Processors 2 See Certain Lemon Juice from Brazil and the Republic of South Africa: Postponement of Preliminary Determinations in the Less-Than-FairValue Investigations, 87 FR 30452 (May 19, 2022). 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Affirmative Determination in the Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of Certain Lemon Juice from the Republic of South Africa,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 4 See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties, Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997). 5 See Initiation Notice.

All-Others Rate Sections 733(d)(1)(ii) and 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provide that in the preliminary determination Commerce shall determine an estimated all-others rate for all exporters and producers not individually examined. This rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero and de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. In this investigation, Commerce preliminarily assigned a rate based entirely on facts available to Granor Passi. Therefore, the only rate that is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts otherwise available is the rate calculated for Cape Fruit. Consequently, the rate calculated for Cape Fruit is also assigned as the rate for all other producers and exporters.

Further, pursuant to section 733(d)(1)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(d), Commerce will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margin or the estimated allothers rate, as follows: (1) the cash deposit rate for the respondents listed 6 Based on total facts available with adverse inferences (AFA).

Stainless Steel Plate in Coils From Belgium, South Africa, and 
Taiwan: Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders and Countervailing Duty 
Order

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

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the U.S. Department of 
Commerce (Commerce) and the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) 
that revocation of the antidumping duty (AD) orders on stainless steel 
plate in coils (SSPC) from Belgium, South Africa, and Taiwan, and the 
countervailing duty (CVD) order on SSPC from South Africa would likely 
lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping, net countervailable 
subsidies, and material injury to an industry in the United States, 
Commerce is publishing a notice of continuation of the AD orders and 
the CVD order.

DATES: Applicable August 4, 2022.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: George McMahon or Carolyn Adie, 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) 482-1167 or (202) 482-6250, 
respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On May 11, 1999, Commerce published the CVD Order on SSPC from 
South Africa.\1\ On May 21, 1999, Commerce published the AD Orders on 
SSPC from Belgium, South Africa, and Taiwan.\2\ On December 1, 2021, 
pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), Commerce published the initiation of the fourth sunset reviews of 
the Orders and the ITC instituted its review of the Orders.\3\ As a 
result of its reviews, Commerce determined that that revocation of the 
AD Orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping 
and that revocation of the CVD Order would likely lead to the 
continuation or recurrence of countervailable subsidies. Commerce, 
therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins and net 
countervailable subsidy rates likely to prevail should the Orders be 
revoked.\4\
