Analysis of Comments Received

All issues raised in the parties' briefs are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with this notice, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues raised is attached to this notice as an Appendix. The Issues and 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).[8] ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Methodology

The Department 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, and that the subsidy is specific.[9]

For a full description of the methodology underlying all of the Department's conclusions, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

There are 58 companies [10] for which a review was requested and not rescinded, but were not selected as mandatory respondents. We did not calculate the non-selected rate by weight-averaging the rates of the Alnan Companies and Jiangsu Changfa, the companies selected for individual examination (mandatory respondents), using their actual export sales of subject merchandise to the United States for the POR, because doing so risks disclosure of proprietary information. We, therefore, calculated an average rate using the mandatory respondents' publicly-ranged sales data for 2012. For further information on the calculation of the non-selected rate, seeAd Valorem Rate for Non-Selected Companies under Review” in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Cooperatives Under Review

There are four companies that did not respond to the Department's Quantity and Value Questionnaire. For those non-cooperative companies, we calculated an adverse facts available rate (AFA). For further information on the calculation of the AFA rate, seeAd Valorem Rate for Non-Cooperative Companies under Review” in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.
