SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is June 1, 2008, through May 31, 2009. This administrative review covers one mandatory respondent and two respondents that claim they did not ship or sell subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. We found no margin for the U.S. sales subject to this administrative review. If VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:53 Jul 14, 2010 Jkt 220001 these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (‘‘CBP’’) to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. Parties who submit comments are requested to submit with each argument a statement of the issue and a brief summary of the argument. We intend to issue the final results of this review no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Melissa Blackledge or Howard Smith, AD/CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3518, and (202) 482–5193, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department received a timely request from Petitioner, Globe Metallurgical Inc. (‘‘Petitioner’’), in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from the PRC of three companies: Datong Jinneng Industrial Silicon Co., Ltd. (‘‘Datong Jinneng’’),1 Jiangxi Gangyuan Silicon Industry Co., Ltd. (‘‘Jiangxi Gangyuan’’),2 and Shanghai Jinneng International Trade Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shanghai Jinneng’’). The Department also received a timely request from Shanghai Jinneng and Datong Jinneng (Shanghai Jinneng’s affiliated supplier and producer of subject merchandise) for an administrative review of Shanghai Jinneng. On July 29, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of an antidumping duty administrative review on silicon metal from the PRC, in which it initiated a review of Datong Jinneng, Jiangxi Gangyuan, and Shanghai Jinneng. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Review, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). On September 11, 2009, the Department issued the antidumping questionnaire to Shanghai Jinneng based on the results of a CBP import data query placed on the record on August 17, 2009, which indicated that only 1 The abbreviation ‘‘Inc.’’ incorrectly appeared after ‘‘Datong Jinneng Industrial Silicon Co.’’ in the Initiation Notice. The abbreviation ‘‘Ltd.’’ should have been used. 2 We have used the abbreviation ‘‘Co.’’ rather than ‘‘Company’’, which was used in the Initiation Notice, because ‘‘Co.’’ is used in the Automated Customs System Module. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41143 Shanghai Jinneng made sales of subject merchandise during the POR. Both Jiangxi Gangyuan, and Datong Jinneng reported that they had no entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Between October 2009 and May 2010, Shanghai Jinneng responded to the Department’s questionnaire and supplemental questionnaires and Petitioner commented on Shanghai Jinneng’s responses. In response to the Department’s December 9, 2009, letter providing parties with an opportunity to submit comments regarding surrogate country and surrogate value selection,3 Shanghai Jinneng and Petitioner filed surrogate country and surrogate value comments from January 2010 through June 2010. On March 4, 2010, the Department extended the deadline for the issuance of the preliminary results of the administrative review until July 7, 2010. See Silicon Metal From the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 9869 (March 4, 2010). Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is silicon metal containing at least 96.00 but less than 99.99 percent of silicon by weight, and silicon metal with a higher aluminum content containing between 89 and 96 percent silicon by weight. The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under item numbers 2804.69.10 and 2804.69.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) as a chemical product, but is commonly referred to as a metal. Semiconductor–grade silicon (silicon metal containing by weight not less than 99.99 percent of silicon and provided for in subheading 2804.61.00 of the HTSUS) is not subject to this order. This order is not limited to silicon metal used only as an alloy agent or in the chemical industry. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive. Intent To Rescind the Administrative Review, in Part As noted above, Jiangxi Gangyuan and Datong Jinneng reported that they did not have any entries of subject merchandise during the POR. To test these claims, the Department ran a CBP data query and issued a no–shipment inquiry to CBP asking it to provide any 3 See Letter from Howard Smith, Program Manager, Office 4, to All Interested Parties, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Silicon Metal from the People’s Republic of China (PRC),’’ dated December 9, 2009.
