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.

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’’).
