SUMMARY: In response to a request from an interested party, the Department of Commerce initiated a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). We preliminarily determine that Husqvarna (Hebei) Co., Ltd. is the successor-ininterest to Hebei Husqvarna Jikai Diamond Tools Co., Ltd. DATES: Effective Date: June 19, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background The Department of Commerce (the Department) published the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from the PRC on November 4, 2009.1 On October 1, 2012, Husqvarna (Hebei) Co., Ltd. (Hebei) filed a request for a changed 1 See Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Korea: Antidumping Duty Orders, 74 FR 57145 (November 4, 2009). VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:13 Jun 18, 2013 Jkt 229001 circumstances review. In its request, Hebei informed the Department that Hebei Husqvarna Jikai Diamond Tools Co., Ltd. (Jikai) 2 changed its name to Hebei on April 27, 2012, and it requested that the Department find Hebei to be the successor-in-interest to Jikai. On January 8, 2013, the Department published the notice of initiation of this review.3 Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are all finished circular sawblades, whether slotted or not, with a working part that is comprised of a diamond segment or segments, and parts thereof, regardless of specification or size, except as specifically excluded below. Within the scope of the order are semifinished diamond sawblades, including diamond sawblade cores and diamond sawblade segments. Diamond sawblade cores are circular steel plates, whether or not attached to non-steel plates, with slots. Diamond sawblade cores are manufactured principally, but not exclusively, from alloy steel. A diamond sawblade segment consists of a mixture of diamonds (whether natural or synthetic, and regardless of the quantity of diamonds) and metal powders (including, but not limited to, iron, cobalt, nickel, tungsten carbide) that are formed together into a solid shape (from generally, but not limited to, a heating and pressing process). Sawblades with diamonds directly attached to the core with a resin or electroplated bond, which thereby do not contain a diamond segment, are not included within the scope of the order. Diamond sawblades and/or sawblade cores with a thickness of less than 0.025 inches, or with a thickness greater than 1.1 inches, are excluded from the scope of the order. Circular steel plates that have a cutting edge of non-diamond material, such as external teeth that protrude from the outer diameter of the plate, whether or not finished, are excluded from the scope of the order. 2 In a previous changed circumstances review, the Department determined that Hebei Husqvarna Jikai Diamond Tools Co., Ltd., is not the successor-ininterest to Hebei Jikai Industrial Group Co., Ltd., and that Hebei Husqvarna Jikai Diamond Tools Co., Ltd., is a new entity.

PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Diamond sawblade cores with a Rockwell C hardness of less than 25 are excluded from the scope of the order. Diamond sawblades and/or diamond segment(s) with diamonds that predominantly have a mesh size number greater than 240 (such as 250 or 260) are excluded from the scope of the order. Merchandise subject to the order is typically imported under heading 8202.39.00.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). When packaged together as a set for retail sale with an item that is separately classified under headings 8202 to 8205 of the HTSUS, diamond sawblades or parts thereof may be imported under heading 8206.00.00.00 of the HTSUS. On October 11, 2011, the Department included the 6804.21.00.00 HTSUS classification number to the customs case reference file, pursuant to a request by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).4 The tariff classification is provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review In making a successor-in-interest determination, the Department examines several factors including, but not limited to, changes in management, production facilities, supplier relationships, and customer base.5 While no single factor or combination of these factors will necessarily provide a dispositive indication of a successor-ininterest relationship, the Department will generally consider the new company to be the successor to the previous company if the new company’s operations are similar to those of its predecessor.6 Thus, if the evidence demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sales of the subject merchandise, the new company operates as the same business entity as the former company, the Department will accord the new company the same 4 See Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 76128 (December 6, 2011). 5 See, e.g., Pressure Sensitive Plastic Tape from Italy: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 75 FR 8925 (Feb. 26, 2010), unchanged in Pressure Sensitive Plastic Tape From Italy: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 75 FR 27706 (May 18, 2010); and Brake Rotors From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 69941 (Nov. 18, 2005) (Brake Rotors), citing Brass Sheet and Strip from Canada; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 57 FR 20460 (May 13, 1992). 6 See, e.g., Brake Rotors.
