DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration [A–570–933] Frontseating Service Valves From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2011– 2012 Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on frontseating service valves from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is April 1, 2011, through March 31, 2012. The review covers two exporters of subject merchandise, Zhejiang DunAn Hetian Metal Co., Ltd. (‘‘DunAn’’) and Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd. (‘‘Sanhua’’). The Department preliminarily finds that DunAn did not have reviewable transactions during the POR. In addition, we preliminarily determine that Sanhua made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value during the POR. DATES: Effective Date: May 13, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order is frontseating service valves, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain parts thereof of any size, configuration, material composition or connection type.1 Frontseating service valves are classified under subheading 8481.80.1095, and Signed at Washington, DC, this 30th day of also have been classified under April 2013. subheading 8415.90.80.85, of the Paul Piquado, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’).

The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, but the written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive.2 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments for DunAn DunAn submitted a timely-filed certification indicating that it had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.3 Consistent with its practice, the Department asked U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to conduct a query on potential shipments made by DunAn during the POR; CBP did not provide any evidence that contradicts DunAn’s claim of no shipments.4 Further, on August 2, 2012, the Department released to interested parties the results of the CBP query that it intended to use for corroboration of DunAn’s no shipment claims.5 The Department received no comments from interested parties concerning the results of the CBP query. Based on DunAn’s certification and our analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily determine that DunAn did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. In addition, the Department finds that, consistent with its recently announced refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) cases, it is appropriate not to rescind the review in part in this circumstance, but rather to complete the review with respect to DunAn and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.6 Methodology The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’).

Because the PRC is a 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 in the Philippines (when available), which is a market economy country that is economically comparable to the PRC and is a significant producer of comparable merchandise.7 To determine the appropriate comparison method, the Department applied a ‘‘differential pricing’’ analysis and has preliminarily determined to use the average-to average method in making comparisons of constructed export price and normal value for Sanhua.

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 20230.11 Unless otherwise extended, 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 of production under 19 CFR 351.408(c) is 20 days after the date of publication of the 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 8 See 19 CFR 351.309(c). 19 CFR 351.309(d). 10 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 11 See 19 CFR 351.310(d)(1). 9 See PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27955 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.12 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.13 Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results of this review, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.14 The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).15 For duty assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise. The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases. 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 12 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. 13 See 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3). 14 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 15 In these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

These management measures include a fishing season, bag limit, and minimum size limit. Since 1996, the recreational fishing season for red snapper has become progressively shorter. Shorter seasons have continued despite an annual increase in the quota since 2010, because the quota continues to be harvested in a shorter amount of time. In Amendment 39, the Council is considering management measures to modify and facilitate management of the recreational red snapper component of the reef fish fishery by reorganizing the Federal fishery management strategy to better account for biological, social, and economic differences among the regions of the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf).

Frontseating Service Valves From the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2011-
2012

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is conducting 
an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on frontseating 
service valves from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The 
period of review (``POR'') is April 1, 2011, through March 31, 2012. 
The review covers two exporters of subject merchandise, Zhejiang DunAn 
Hetian Metal Co., Ltd. (``DunAn'') and Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd. 
(``Sanhua''). The Department preliminarily finds that DunAn did not 
have reviewable transactions during the POR. In addition, we 
preliminarily determine that Sanhua made sales of subject merchandise 
at less than normal value during the POR.

DATES:  Effective Date: May 13, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laurel LaCivita, AD/CVD Operations, 
Office 8, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 
20230; telephone: (202) 482-4243.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order is frontseating service 
valves, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain 
parts thereof of any size, configuration, material composition or 
connection type.\1\ Frontseating service valves are classified under 
subheading 8481.80.1095, and also have been classified under subheading 
8415.90.80.85, of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(``HTSUS''). It is possible for frontseating service valves to be 
manufactured out of primary materials other than copper and brass, in 
which case they would be classified under HTSUS subheadings 
8481.80.3040, 8481.80.3090, or 8481.80.5090. In addition, if 
unassembled or incomplete frontseating service valves are imported, the 
various parts or components would be classified under HTSUS subheadings 
8481.90.1000, 8481.90.3000, or 8481.90.5000. The HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, but the written 
description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive.\2\

Antidumping Duty Administrative Review issued concurrently with this 
notice for a complete description of the Scope of the Order.

the People's Republic of China, 74 FR 19196 (April 28, 2009) 
(``Order'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments for DunAn

    DunAn submitted a timely-filed certification indicating that it had 
no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the 
POR.\3\ Consistent with its practice, the Department asked U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (``CBP'') to conduct a query on potential 
shipments made by DunAn during the POR; CBP did not provide any 
evidence that contradicts DunAn's claim of no shipments.\4\ Further, on 
August 2, 2012, the Department released to interested parties the 
results of the CBP query that it intended to use for corroboration of 
DunAn's no shipment claims.\5\ The Department received no comments from 
interested parties concerning the results of the CBP query.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See letter from DunAn, ``No Shipment Letter for Zhejiang 
DunAn Hetian Metal Co., Ltd.: Third Annual Administrative Review of 
the Antidumping Duty Order on Frontseating Service Valves from the 
People's Republic of China, A-570-933 (POR: 04/01/11-03/31/12),'' 
dated July 19, 2012.
    \4\ See CBP Message Number, 2240301, dated 08/27/2012.
    \5\ See Memorandum to the File, ``2011-2012 Administrative 
Review of Frontseating Service Valves from the People's Republic of 
China: U.S. Customs and Border Protection Data,'' dated August 2, 
2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based on DunAn's certification and our analysis of CBP information, 
we preliminarily determine that DunAn did not have any reviewable 
transactions during the POR. In addition, the Department finds that, 
consistent with its recently announced refinement to its assessment 
practice in non-market economy (``NME'') cases, it is appropriate not 
to rescind the review in part in this circumstance, but rather to 
complete the review with respect to DunAn and issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.\6\

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011) and 
the ``Assessment Rates'' section, below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). 
Constructed

[[Page 27955]]

export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772(b) of 
the Act. Because the PRC is a 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 in the Philippines (when available), which is a market 
economy country that is economically comparable to the PRC and is a 
significant producer of comparable merchandise.\7\ To determine the 
appropriate comparison method, the Department applied a ``differential 
pricing'' analysis and has preliminarily determined to use the average-
to average method in making comparisons of constructed export price and 
normal value for Sanhua.

number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of the 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.\11\

    Unless otherwise extended, 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 of 
production under 19 CFR 351.408(c) is 20 days after the date of 
publication of the 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.\12\ 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.\13\

Rescission, in Part, 72 FR 58809 (October 17, 2007), and 
accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 2.
    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3).

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results of this review, the Department 
will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review.\14\ The Department intends 
to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific 
ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount 
of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total 
entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\15\ For duty assessment rates calculated on this basis, 
we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the 
entered customs values for the subject merchandise.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment 
practice in NME cases. 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

[[Page 27956]]

number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-
wide rate.\16\

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements, when imposed, will apply 
to all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For DunAn, which claimed no shipments, the 
cash deposit rate will remain unchanged from the rate assigned to DunAn 
in the most recently completed review of the company; (2) for Sanhua, 
which has a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the one 
established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is 
zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (3) for 
any previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporter that 
is not under review in this segment of the proceeding but that received 
a separate rate in a previous segment, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (4) 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 55.62 percent, which is rate assigned to 
the PRC-Wide Entity in the investigation; \17\ and (5) 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(s) that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These cash 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.
    We are issuing and publishing notice of these results in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated; May 2, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
