This safeguard mechanism applies when, as a result of the elimination of a customs duty under VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:50 Apr 16, 2013 Jkt 229001 the Agreement, an Omani textile or apparel article is being imported into the United States in such increased quantities, in absolute terms or relative to the domestic market for that article, and under such conditions as to cause serious damage or actual threat thereof to a U.S. industry producing a like or directly competitive article. In these circumstances, Article 3.1 permits the United States to increase duties on the imported article from Oman to a level that does not exceed the lesser of the prevailing U.S. normal trade relations (NTR)/most-favored-nation (MFN) duty rate for the article or the U.S. NTR/MFN duty rate in effect on the day before the Agreement entered into force. The Statement of Administrative Action accompanying the Act provides that the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA) will issue procedures for requesting such safeguard measures, for making its determinations under section 322(a) of the Act, and for providing relief under section 322(b) of the Act. In Proclamation No. 8332 (73 FR 80289, December 31, 2008), the President delegated to CITA his authority under Subtitle B of Title III of the Act with respect to textile and apparel safeguard measures. CITA must collect information in order to determine whether a domestic textile or apparel industry is being adversely impacted by imports of these products from Oman, thereby allowing CITA to take corrective action to protect the viability of the domestic textile or apparel industry, subject to section 322(b) of the Act.

We have limited the application of our affirmative preliminary determination to graphite electrodes from the PRC, produced and/or exported by Jilin Carbon, with an actual or nominal diameter of 17 inches because record evidence shows that, among the producers and merchandise subject to this inquiry, Jilin Carbon produced and/ or exported 17-inch diameter graphite electrodes to the United States,2 and we have no record evidence at this time supporting a determination that any other producer in the PRC produces or exports graphite electrodes with diameters larger than 16 inches but less than 18 inches.

This preliminary determination applies only to merchandise produced and/or exported by Jilin Carbon.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Antidumping Duty Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is small diameter graphite 
electrodes. Small diameter graphite electrodes subject to the order are 
currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (``HTSUS'') at subheading 8545.11.0010. The HTSUS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and customs purposes. A full description

Administration, ``Preliminary Analysis Memorandum for the Circumvention 
Inquiry of the Antidumping Duty Order on Small Diameter Graphite

Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Scope of the Circumvention Inquiry

    The merchandise subject to this circumvention inquiry consists of 
graphite electrodes from the PRC, produced and/or exported by Jilin 
Carbon, Beijing Fangda Carbon-Tech Co., Ltd. and Fangda Carbon New 
Material Co., Ltd., and Fushun Jinly Petrochemical Carbon, with 
diameters larger than 16 inches but less than 18 inches, and otherwise 
meeting the description of the scope of the Order. We have limited the 
application of our affirmative preliminary determination to graphite 
electrodes from the PRC, produced and/or exported by Jilin Carbon, with 
an actual or nominal diameter of 17 inches because record evidence 
shows that, among the producers and merchandise subject to this 
inquiry, Jilin Carbon produced and/or exported 17-inch diameter 
graphite electrodes to the United States,\2\ and we have no record 
evidence at this time supporting a determination that any other 
producer in the PRC produces or exports graphite electrodes with 
diameters larger than 16 inches but less than 18 inches.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 3-4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department has made this preliminary finding of circumvention 
in accordance with section 781(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act'') and 19 CFR 351.225(i). For a full description of the 
methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Preliminary Determination

    As detailed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we 
preliminarily determine, pursuant to section 781(c) of the Act, that 
imports from the PRC of certain graphite electrodes, produced and/or 
exported by Jilin Carbon, with a diameter of 17 inches, and otherwise 
meeting the description of in-scope merchandise, constitutes 
merchandise altered in form or appearance in such minor respects that 
it should be subject to the Order. This preliminary determination 
applies only to merchandise produced and/or exported by Jilin Carbon. 
Because we are recommending an affirmative preliminary determination of 
circumvention with respect to minor alterations pursuant to section 
781(c) of the Act, we do not find it necessary to make a determination 
with respect to a later-developed merchandise circumvention inquiry 
pursuant to section 781(d) of the Act and we intend to rescind the 
later-developed merchandise circumvention inquiry.

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(l)(2), we are directing U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to suspend liquidation of 
entries of merchandise subject to this inquiry produced and/or exported 
by Jilin Carbon, and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after June 25, 2012, the date of publication of the 
initiation of this inquiry. We will also instruct CBP to require a cash 
deposit of estimated duties at the applicable rates for each 
unliquidated entry of the product entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after June 25, 2012, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.225(l)(2).

each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, or to participate if one is requested, must submit a 
written request to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, 
filed electronically via IA ACCESS. An electronically filed document
