The Department issued additional supplemental questionnaires to Watex and received responses on April 11, May 23, July 19, September 12, and October 5, 2005. The Department conducted verification of Watex’s questionnaire responses from October 24 to October 26, 2005. See ‘‘Verification Report for Shanghai Watex Metal Co., Ltd.,’’ dated December 12, 2005 (‘‘Watex Verification Report’’). The Department conducted verification of Watex’s questionnaire responses regarding its producer Shanghai Ping An Enamel Products Co. (‘‘Ping An’’), from October 26 to October 28, 2005. See ‘‘Verification Report for PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76027 Shanghai Ping An Enamel Products Co.,’’ dated December 12, 2005 (‘‘Ping An Verification Report’’).

Scope of Order The merchandise covered by this order is porcelain–on-steel cooking ware from the PRC, including tea kettles, which do not have self–contained electric heating elements. All of the foregoing are constructed of steel and are enameled or glazed with vitreous glasses.

The written description of the scope remains dispositive. Non–Market Economy In every case conducted by the Department involving the PRC, the PRC has been treated as a non–market economy (‘‘NME’’). Pursuant to section 771(18)(C)(i) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), any determination that a foreign country is an NME country shall remain in effect until revoked by the administering authority. See Fresh Garlic from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Rescission in Part, 69 FR 70638 (December 7, 2004). None of the parties to this proceeding has contested such treatment. Accordingly, we calculated normal value (‘‘NV’’) in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act, which applies to NME countries. Surrogate Country On April 15, 2005, the Department provided interested parties the opportunity to submit comments regarding the selection of a surrogate country and factor valuation in these preliminary results.

On May 6, 2005, petitioner submitted publicly available information for surrogate country selection.
