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’’).

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.

In these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., on the basis of monthly average-to-average comparisons using only the transactions associated with that importer with offsets being provided for non-dumped comparisons.19 Where the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to each importer (or customer).20 Where the Department calculated a weightedaverage dumping margin by dividing the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales 18 See 19 CFR 351.212(b).

These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. 21 See id. 22 See id. 23 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod (wire rod) from Mexico. The period of review is October 1, 2010, through September 30, 2011, and the review covers one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise, Deacero S.A. de C.V. and Deacero USA, Inc. (collectively, Deacero). We have preliminarily found that sales of the subject merchandise have been made at prices below normal value. DATES: Effective November 8, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to this order is carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 7213.91.3010, 7213.91.3090, 7213.91.4510, 7213.91.4590, 7213.91.6010, 7213.91.6090, 7213.99.0031, 7213.99.0038, 7213.99.0090, 7227.20.0010, 7227.20.0020, 7227.20.0090, 7227.20.0095, 7227.90.6051, 7227.90.6053, 7227.90.6058, and 7227.90.6059. Although the HTS PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description, available in Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Moldova, Trinidad and Tobago, and Ukraine, 67 FR 65945 (October 29, 2002), remains dispositive. On October 1, 2012, the Department published Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Mexico: Affirmative Final Determination of Circumvention of the Antidumping Duty Order.1 The Department found that shipments of wire rod with an actual diameter of 4.75 mm to 5.00 mm produced in Mexico and exported to the United States by Deacero constitute merchandise altered in form or appearance in such minor respects that it should be included within the scope of the order on wire rod from Mexico. Methodology The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Constructed export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. Petitioners filed an allegation demonstrating that Deacero made sales below the cost of production. We have reasonable grounds to believe or suspect that Deacero’s sales of the foreign like product under consideration for the determination of normal value in this review may have been made at prices below the cost of production (COP) as provided by section 773(b)(2)(A)(ii) of the Act. Accordingly, pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act, we have conducted a COP analysis of Deacero’s sales in Mexico in this review. Based on this test, we disregarded certain sales made by Deacero in its comparison markets which were made at below-cost prices. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see the memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Mexico’’ (Preliminary Decision 1 See Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Mexico: Affirmative Final Determination of Circumvention of the Antidumping Duty Order, 77 FR 59892 (October 1, 2012).

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'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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. See Steel Wire Garment Hangers From

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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

Withdrawal of Requests for Review

    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\

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 PRC-wide entity in these 
preliminary results and, ultimately, the final results.\7\

However, if these preliminary results are adopted in our final 
results, any of Angang or Laidlaw's PRC-origin exports of subject 
merchandise made during the POR shall be liquidated at the PRC-wide 
rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). 
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

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\18\ The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this 
review. In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Final Modification for 
Reviews, i.e., on the basis of monthly average-to-average comparisons 
using only the transactions associated with that importer with offsets 
being provided for non-dumped comparisons.\19\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Where the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\20\ Where the 
Department calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the 
total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total 
sales

quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will direct 
CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the resulting 
per-unit rates.\21\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad 
valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis, the Department 
will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of 
liquidation.\22\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem 
or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.\23\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be established in the final 
results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then 
no cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a 
separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the 
most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise 
that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 187.25 percent; and (4) for 
all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received 
their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to 
the PRC exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: November 1, 2012.

Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
