SUMMARY: On November 17, 2016, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated a changed circumstances review (CCR) of the antidumping duty order on glycine from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). The Department preliminarily determines that Salvi Chemical Industries Ltd. (Salvi) is eligible to participate in a certification process, because Salvi has demonstrated that glycine produced by Salvi is no longer processed from Chinese-origin glycine. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective August 11, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On December 10, 2012, the Department published its final anticircumvention inquiry determination, where the record indicated that Salvi was processing Chinese glycine and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Aug 10, 2017 Jkt 241001 labeling it to be of Indian origin.1 The Department determined that glycine processed in India of Chinese origin does not change country of origin, and, therefore, Salvi had circumvented the Order.2 As part of our determination, we stated that Salvi could not take part in a certification process, whereby Salvi’s importers could certify that they had not imported Chinese-origin glycine and would not be subject to the antidumping duty rate for Chinese glycine.3 Additionally, we stated that Salvi could also request a CCR if it could show that its exports of glycine to the United States were not processed from Chineseorigin glycine.4 On July 18, 2016, the Department received a request from Salvi to initiate a CCR in order for the Department to determine that the glycine produced by Salvi is no longer processed from Chinese-origin glycine.5 Additionally, Salvi requested that the Department determine that importers of glycine from Salvi are eligible to participate in a certification process.6 On November 16, 2017, the Department initiated this CCR, pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.216(d), upon finding that there is sufficient information to warrant a review of the Order.7 Scope of the Order The product covered by this antidumping duty order is glycine, which is a free-flowing crystalline material, like salt or sugar. Glycine is produced at varying levels of purity and is used as a sweetener/taste enhancer, a buffering agent, reabsorbable amino acid, chemical intermediate, and a metal complexing agent. This proceeding includes glycine of all purity levels. 1 See Memorandum, ‘‘Final Scope Ruling Concerning the Antidumping Duty Order on Glycine from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated December 3, 2012 (Final Scope Ruling) at 14. 2 See Glycine from the People’s Republic of China: Final Partial Affirmative Determination of Circumvention of the Antidumping Duty Order, 77 FR 73426 (December 10, 2012) (Circumvention Notice) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Determination of the Anti-Circumvention Inquiry of the Antidumping Duty Order on Glycine from the People’s Republic of China; see also Antidumping Duty Order: Glycine from the People’s Republic of China, 60 FR 16116 (March 29, 1995) (Order); see also Final Scope Ruling. 3 See Circumvention Notice and Final Scope Ruling. 4 See Circumvention Notice. 5 See Letter, ‘‘Glycine from the People’s Republic of China: Request for Changed Circumstances Review,’’ dated July 18, 2016. 6 Id. 7 See Glycine from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 81 FR 81064 (November 17, 2016).

Preliminary Results of the Changed Circumstances Review We preliminarily determine that, since the Circumvention Notice and Final Scope Ruling were issued, Salvi has demonstrated that glycine produced by Salvi is no longer processed from Chinese-origin glycine.
