SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The Department selected Jangho [1] and Zhongya [2] as mandatory respondents in this administrative review of the CVD order [3] on aluminum extrusions from Start Printed Page 92779the PRC. The Department issued the Preliminary Results of this administrative review on June 3, 2016, and published them in the Federal Register on June 13, 2016.[4] At that time, we invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On June 9, 2016, we received a case brief from Wuxi Huida Aluminum Co., Ltd. (Wuxi Huida), a non-selected respondent.[5] On July 13, 2016 and July 22, 2016, we granted parties extensions of time to submit case and rebuttal briefs.[6] On July 18, 2016, we received case briefs from the Aluminum Extrusions Fair Trade Committee (Petitioner), the Government of China (GOC), Jangho, and RMD Kwikform North America, Inc. (RMD).[7] On July 28, 2016, we received rebuttal briefs from the Petitioner and Jangho.[8] On August 4, 2016, the Department released draft cash deposit and liquidation instructions, and on August 9, 2016, released a letter inviting comments on these draft instructions.[9] On August 11, 2016, RMD and Jangho Americas, importers of subject merchandise, submitted comments on the draft customs instructions.[10] While the Department received a request for a hearing, that request was subsequently withdrawn; therefore, the Department did not conduct a hearing for the instant administrative review.[11] The Department extended the final results of this administrative review on October 4, 2016 and October 20, 2016.[12] On November 14, 2016, the Department extended the deadline for the final results to November 20, 2016.[13]

Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order, which is contained in the Start Printed Page 92780accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum is dispositive.[14]

Analysis of Comments Received

All issues raised in the parties' briefs are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with this notice, and which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of 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 Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov; the Issues and Decision Memorandum is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit (CRU), Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/​frn/​. The signed and electronic versions 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.[15] For a full description of the methodology underlying all of the Department's conclusions, including any determination that relied upon the use of adverse facts available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Partial Rescission of Review

For those companies named in the Initiation Notice[16] for which all review requests have timely been withdrawn, we are rescinding this administrative review in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). These companies are listed at Appendix II to this notice. For these companies, countervailing duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the rates of the cash deposits for estimated countervailing duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the POR, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2).

Also, between July 1, 2015 and August 1, 2015, the Department timely received no-shipment certifications from certain companies. In the Preliminary Results, the Department stated its intention to rescind the review with respect to these companies. The Department inquired with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) whether these companies had shipped merchandise to the United States during this review period,[17] and CBP provided no evidence to contradict the claims made by these companies. However, these companies were also included in the Petitioner's timely withdrawal of its review requests, and because no party other than the Petitioner requested a review of these companies, the Department is rescinding the administrative review of these companies pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

In this review, and in addition to the two selected mandatory respondents, there are 45 companies for which a review was requested and not rescinded (non-selected companies). For these non-selected companies, we could not calculate a rate by weight averaging Jangho's and Zhongya's individual rates, as Zhongya's rate is based entirely on adverse facts available.[18] Instead, for these final results, we based the non-selected companies' rate on the subsidy rate calculated for Jangho. For further information on the calculation of the non-selected companies' rate, refer to the section in the Issues and Decision Memorandum entitled, “Final Ad Valorem Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review.”

Final Results of Administrative Review

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we determine the following final net subsidy rates for the 2014 administrative review:

As stated above, we have used “Jangho” to refer to the cross-owned entities to which we will assign a subsidy rate. See “Final Results of Administrative Review,” below. We have used “the Jangho Group” and “Jangho Group” to refer to the corporate group consisting of Jangho Group Company and its subsidiaries (i.e., not including Beijing Jiangheyuan Holding Com., Ltd. and Jangho Group Company's other corporate parent, Xinjiang Jianghe Huizhong Equity Investment Limited Partnership). We have used “the Jangho companies,” to refer to the members of the Jangho Group as well as Beijing Jiangheyuan Holding Com., Ltd.and Xinjiang Jianghe Huizhong Equity Investment Limited Partnership. Further, Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd. is an affiliated Hong Kong reseller/trading company and member of the Jangho Group. For these final results, we are treating Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd. as a Hong Kong, or non-PRC, company, and have not attributed any subsidies to Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd., consistent with 19 CFR 351.525(b) (7). Any shipments of subject merchandise to the United States by Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd. will be subject to the Department's cash deposit requirements. For entries of subject merchandise exported by Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd., the Department intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits according to the appropriate rates assigned to the producer, or the all-others rate if the producer does not have its own assigned cash deposit rate.

2.  For purposes of the final results of this administrative review, “Zhongya” refers to the following companies: Guangdong Zhongya Aluminium Company Limited, Zhaoqing New Zhongya Aluminum Co., Ltd., New Zhongya Aluminum Factory, Karlton Aluminum Company Ltd., and Zhongya Shaped Aluminum (HK) Holding Limited (collectively, “Zhongya”). “Zhongya” includes companies selected as mandatory respondents, as well as companies that responded to the Department's initial questionnaire as a group by submitting a letter indicating that they would not be participating in this administrative review. See “Application of Adverse Facts Available to Non-Cooperative Mandatory Respondent Zhongya” for more information. We inadvertently omitted Zhongya Shaped Aluminum (HK) Holding Limited from the list of companies included in “Zhongya” in the Preliminary Results, but did include all companies in the Department's draft cash deposit and liquidation instructions, which were released to interested parties for comment. We clarify that it was the Department's intent to include Zhongya Shaped Aluminum (HK) Holding Limited in “Zhongya.” No parties commented in case briefs on the Department's treatment of these companies as a group in the Preliminary Results or on the Department's draft instructions. Use of “Zhongya” to refer to these companies collectively does not denote a cross-ownership determination with respect to any of these companies in this administrative review.
