SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on small diameter graphite electrodes (graphite electrodes) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC), covering the period February 1, 2011, through January 31, 2012. The Department has preliminarily determined that during the period of review (POR) certain companies covered by this review have not made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value, and that other companies are now part of the PRC-wide entity. DATES: Effective Date: March 8, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dmitry Vladimirov or Minoo Hatten, AD/CVD Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, Washington DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–0665 or (202) 482– 1690, respectively. AGENCY: Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes all small diameter graphite electrodes with a nominal or actual diameter of 400 millimeters (16 inches) or less and graphite pin joining systems for small diameter graphite electrodes. Small diameter graphite electrodes and graphite pin joining systems for small diameter graphite electrodes that are subject to the order are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 8545.11.0010 and 3801.10. The HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in 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: Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the People’s Republic of China’’ dated concurrently with this PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by this notice. The written description is dispositive. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Import Administration’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://www.trade.gov/ ia/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Partial Rescission of the Administrative Review Based on the withdrawal of the requests for review and because the companies previously established their entitlement to a separate rate, we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to 19 companies named in the Initiation Notice 1 and listed in the attachment to this notice as Appendix II. Methodology The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (NME) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. Specifically, the respondents’ factors of production have been valued using prices in Ukraine, a country which is economically comparable to the PRC and a significant producer of comparable merchandise. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Results of Review The Department has determined that the following preliminary dumping margins exist for the period February 1, 2011, through January 31, 2012: 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 77 FR 19179 (March 30, 2012) (Initiation Notice).

However, the Department generally will not accept in the rebuttal submission additional or alternative surrogate value information not previously on the record, if the deadline for submission of surrogate value information has passed.6 Furthermore, the Department generally will not accept business proprietary information in either the surrogate value submissions or the rebuttals thereto, as the regulation regarding the submission of surrogate values allows only for the submission of publicly available information.7 Assessment Rates Upon issuing the final results of review, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.8 If a respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and, where possible, the total entered value of those sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Specifically, the Department will apply 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.9 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.10 6 See, e.g., Glycine from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final Rescission, in Part, 72 FR 58809 (October 17, 2007), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 2. 7 See 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3). 8See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 9See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8103 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews). 10See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14965 On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases. 11 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Fushun Jinly Petrochemical Carbon Co., Ltd., Xinghe County Muzi Carbon Co., Ltd., and the five companies comprising the Fangda Group 12 will be the rate established in the final results of this administrative 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 existing exporterspecific rate; (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 that for the 11 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 12 The Fangda Group consists of Beijing Fangda Carbon Tech Co., Ltd., Chengdu Rongguang Carbon Co., Ltd., Fangda Carbon New Material Co., Ltd., Fushun Carbon Co., Ltd., and Hefei Carbon Co., Ltd.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 2, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) and Mexican tomato growers/exporters accounting for a significant percentage of all fresh tomatoes imported into the United States from Mexico initialed a proposed agreement to suspend the antidumping investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico. The Department released the proposed agreement to interested parties on February 2, 2013 and afforded them an opportunity to comment on the initialed agreement by February 11, 2013. Several interested parties filed comments. Based on this proposed agreement, and the anticipation that the Mexican tomato growers/exporters would withdraw from the 2008 Suspension Agreement on Fresh Tomatoes from Mexico (see Suspension of Antidumping Investigation: Fresh Tomatoes from Mexico, 73 FR 4831 (January 28, 2008) (2008 Agreement)) in order to enter into a new agreement if an acceptable agreement was reached, the Department published a notice of intent to terminate the suspension agreement and resume the antidumping investigation, and intent to terminate the sunset review on February 8, 2013. See Fresh Tomatoes from Mexico: Intent to Terminate Suspension Agreement and Resume Antidumping Investigation and Intent to Terminate Sunset Review, 78 FR 9366 (February 8, 2013). On February 28, 2013, Mexican tomato growers/exporters accounting for a significant percentage of all fresh tomatoes imported into the United States from Mexico provided written notice to the Department of their withdrawal from the 2008 Agreement, effective 90 days from the date of their withdrawal letter (i.e., May 29, 2013), or earlier, at the Department’s discretion. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14967 The Department accepted the Mexican tomato growers/exporters’ withdrawal from the 2008 Agreement, effective March 1, 2013. See Termination of Suspension Agreement, Termination of Five-year Sunset Review and Resumption of Investigation, publication pending. On March 4, 2013, the Department signed a new suspension agreement (2013 Suspension Agreement) with certain growers/exporters of fresh tomatoes from Mexico. The 2013 Suspension Agreement is attached to this notice of Suspension of Antidumping Investigation. Scope of the Investigation The merchandise subject to this investigation is all fresh or chilled tomatoes (fresh tomatoes) which have Mexico as their origin, except for those tomatoes which are for processing. For purposes of this investigation, processing is defined to include preserving by any commercial process, such as canning, dehydrating, drying, or the addition of chemical substances, or converting the tomato product into juices, sauces, or purees. Fresh tomatoes that are imported for cutting up, not further processing (e.g., tomatoes used in the preparation of fresh salsa or salad bars), are covered by this Agreement. Commercially grown tomatoes, both for the fresh market and for processing, are classified as Lycopersicon esculentum. Important commercial varieties of fresh tomatoes include common round, cherry, grape, plum, greenhouse, and pear tomatoes, all of which are covered by this investigation. Tomatoes imported from Mexico covered by this investigation are classified under the following subheading of the Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States (HTSUS), according to the season of importation: 0702. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive. Suspension of Investigation The Department consulted with the Mexican tomato growers/exporters and the petitioners and has considered the comments submitted by interested parties with respect to the proposal to suspend the antidumping investigation. In accordance with section 734(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act), we have determined that extraordinary circumstances are present in this case, as defined by section 734(c)(2)(A) of the Act.

graphite electrodes with a nominal or actual diameter of 400 
millimeters (16 inches) or less and graphite pin joining systems for 
small diameter graphite electrodes. Small diameter graphite electrodes 
and graphite pin joining systems for small diameter graphite electrodes 
that are subject to the order are currently classified under the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 
8545.11.0010 and 3801.10. The HTSUS numbers are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes. A full description of the scope of 
the order is contained in 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: Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the 
People's Republic of China'' dated concurrently with this notice 
(Preliminary Decision Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by this 
notice. The written description is dispositive. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically 
via Import Administration's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is 
available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the 
Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the 
electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Partial Rescission of the Administrative Review

    Based on the withdrawal of the requests for review and because the 
companies previously established their entitlement to a separate rate, 
we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to 19 
companies named in the Initiation Notice \1\ and listed in the 
attachment to this notice as Appendix II.

Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, and 
Deferral of Administrative Review, 77 FR 19179 (March 30, 2012) 
(Initiation Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export 
prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. 
Because the PRC is a non-market economy (NME) within the meaning of 
section 771(18) of the Act, normal value has been calculated in 
accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. Specifically, the 
respondents' factors of production have been valued using prices in 
Ukraine, a country which is economically comparable to the PRC and a 
significant producer of comparable merchandise. For a full description 
of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department has determined that the following preliminary 
dumping margins exist for the period February 1, 2011, through January 
31, 2012:

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department will disclose calculations performed for these 
preliminary results to the parties within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). 
Interested parties may submit written comments no later than 30 days 
after the date of publication of these preliminary results of 
review.\2\ Rebuttals to written comments may be filed no later than 
five days after the written comments are filed.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c).
    \3\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of 
publication of this notice.\4\ Hearing requests should contain the 
following information: (1) The party's name, address, and telephone; 
(2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues to be 
discussed. Oral presentations will be limited to issues raised in the 
briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be notified of 
the time and date for the hearing to be held at the U.S. Department of 
Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
    \5\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, which will include the results of its analysis 
of issues raised in any such comments, within 120 days of publication 
of these preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act.

Deadline for Submission of Publicly Available Surrogate Value 
Information

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(ii), the deadline for 
submission of publicly available information to value factors 
production under 19 CFR 351.408(c) is 20 days after the date of 
publication of these preliminary results. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.301(c)(1), if an interested party submits factual information less 
than ten days before, on, or after (if the Department has extended the 
deadline), the applicable deadline for submission of such factual 
information, an interested party may submit factual information to 
rebut, clarify, or correct the factual information no later than ten 
days after such factual information is served on the interested party. 
However, the Department generally will not accept in the rebuttal 
submission additional or alternative surrogate value information not 
previously on the record, if the deadline for submission of surrogate 
value information has passed.\6\ Furthermore, the Department generally 
will not accept business proprietary information in either the 
surrogate value submissions or the rebuttals thereto, as the regulation 
regarding the submission of surrogate values allows only for the 
submission of publicly available information.\7\

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

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of review, the Department will 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\8\ If a respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is above 
de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we 
will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales and, where possible, the total entered value of those 
sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Specifically, the 
Department will apply 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.\9\ 
Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or 
de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.\10\

    \8\See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8103 (February 14, 2012) 
(Final Modification for Reviews).
    \10\See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its 
assessment practice in NME cases. \11\ Pursuant to this refinement in 
practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales 
databases submitted by companies individually examined during this 
review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at 
the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an 
exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any 
suspended entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., 
at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of 
review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for Fushun Jinly Petrochemical Carbon Co., Ltd., Xinghe County Muzi 
Carbon Co., Ltd., and the five companies comprising the Fangda Group 
\12\ will be the rate established in the final results of this 
administrative 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 existing exporter-specific rate; (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 that for the

[[Page 14966]]

PRC-wide entity; 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ The Fangda Group consists of Beijing Fangda Carbon Tech 
Co., Ltd., Chengdu Rongguang Carbon Co., Ltd., Fangda Carbon New 
Material Co., Ltd., Fushun Carbon Co., Ltd., and Hefei Carbon Co., 
Ltd. We refer to the Fangda Group as a single entity pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.401(f)(1). See Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes From the

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This administrative review and notice are in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: March 4, 2013.
