SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) is conducting the third administrative review of steel wire garment hangers from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) for the period October 1, 2010, through September 30, 2011. The Department has preliminarily determined that Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd., Hong Kong Wells Ltd., (USA), and Hong Kong Wells Ltd.,1 did not sell subject merchandise in the United States at prices below normal value (‘‘NV’’). DATES: Effective November 8, 2012. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kabir Archuletta, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: 1 The Department previously found that Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shanghai Wells’’), Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (‘‘HK Wells’’) and Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (USA) (‘‘Wells USA’’) are affiliated and that Shanghai Wells and HK Wells comprise a single entity (collectively, ‘‘Shanghai Wells Group’’). Because there were no changes in this review, we continue to find Shanghai Wells, HK Wells, and USA Wells are affiliated and that Shanghai Wells and HK Wells comprise a single entity.

Constructed export prices and export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a nonmarket economy within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c). Specifically, the Shanghai Wells Group’s factors of production have been valued using Philippine prices, a country that is economically comparable to the PRC and that is a significant producer of comparable merchandise. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.8 The Scope of the Order The merchandise that is subject to the order is steel wire garment hangers. The products subject to the order are currently classified under U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 7326.20.0020, 7323.99.9060, and 7323.99.9080. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise remains dispositive.2 Withdrawal of Requests for Review DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE VerDate Mar<15>2010 Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–2593. On February 28, 2012, M&B Metal Products Co., Inc (‘‘Petitioner’’), withdrew its request for an administrative review of 52 of the 59 companies under review.3 On July 11, 2012, the Department published a notice of rescission in the Federal Register for those companies for which the request for review was withdrawn and which also had a separate rate from a previous segment of this proceeding.4 The Department stated that it would address the disposition of the remaining withdrawn companies that do not have a separate rate in the preliminary results of this review.5 The deadline to file a separate rate application, separate rate certification, or a notification of no sales, exports or entries, is 60 days after the initiation of the administrative review,6 which in this case was January 29, 2012. Therefore, as of January 30, 2012, the remaining companies under review that did not demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate effectively became part of the PRC-wide entity. Accordingly, while the requests for review of those companies were withdrawn by Petitioner on February 28, 2012, those withdrawn companies remain under review as part of the PRC-wide entity, and the Department will make a determination with respect to the PRC2 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 58111 (October 6, 2008). 3 See Letter from Petitioner to the Secretary of Commerce ‘‘Third Administrative Review of Steel Wire Garment Hangers from China—Petitioner’s Withdrawal of Review Requests for Specific Companies’’ (February 28, 2012). 4 See Steel Wire Garment Hangers From the People’s Republic of China: Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 40853, 40854 (July 11, 2012). 5 See id. at 77 FR 40854 n.5. 6 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation In Part, 76 FR 74041, 74041 (November 30, 2011).
