Where either a respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003.7 This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by TUNA, Lamina, Mueller, or Regiopysta for which these companies did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. Further, instead of rescinding the review with respect to TUNA, Lamina, Mueller, and Regiopysta, we find it appropriate to complete the review and issue liquidation instructions to CBP concerning entries for TUNA, Lamina, Mueller, and Regiopysta following issuance of the final results of review. If we continue to find that TUNA, Lamina, Mueller, and Regiopysta had no shipments of subject merchandise in the final results, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by TUNA, Lamina, Mueller, and Regiopysta, but exported by other parties at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate.8 Notification to Importers pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. 7 For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 8 See, e.g., Magnesium Metal From the Russian Federation: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 26922, 26923 (May 13, 2010), unchanged in Magnesium Metal From the Russian Federation: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 56989 (September 17, 2010).

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on purified carboxymethylcellulose (purified CMC) from the Netherlands. The period of review (POR) is July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012. The review covers two producers/exporters of the subject merchandise, Akzo Nobel Functional Chemicals, B.V. (Akzo Nobel) and CP Kelco, B.V. (CP Kelco). We preliminarily determine that sales of subject merchandise by Akzo Nobel were made at less than normal value and CP Kelco had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. DATES: Effective Date: August 9, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is all purified CMC. The merchandise subject to the order is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48649 subheading 3912.31.00. This tariff classification is provided for convenience and Customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. 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, titled ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from the Netherlands’’ (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), which is issued concurrent with and hereby adopted by this notice. 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). Access to IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// iaaccess.trade.gov and is available to all parties 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/frn/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Methodology The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Constructed export price (CEP) is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. In accordance with section 773(b) of the Act, we disregarded certain sales made by Akzo Nobel in the home market which were made at below-cost prices. To determine the appropriate comparison method, the Department applied a ‘‘differential pricing’’ analysis and has preliminarily determined to apply the average-totransaction method to the portion of U.S. sales which passed the Cohen’s d test and the average-to-average method to the remaining portion of U.S. sales which did not pass the Cohen’s d test in order to calculate Akzo Nobel’s weighted-average dumping margin. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. E:\FR\FM\09AUN1.SGM 09AUN1 48650 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 154 / Friday, August 9, 2013 / Notices Preliminary Determination of No Shipments The Department received a timely submission from CP Kelco reporting to the Department that it did not sell or export the subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.1 On April 19, 2013, we transmitted a ‘‘NoShipment Inquiry’’ to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regarding this company. Pursuant to this inquiry, the Department received no notification from CBP of entries of subject merchandise from CP Kelco within the ten-day deadline.2 Accordingly, based on record evidence, we preliminarily determine that CP Kelco had no shipments during the POR. Consistent with our practice, the Department finds that it is not appropriate to rescind the review with respect to CP Kelco, but rather to complete the review with respect to CP Kelco and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review. Preliminary Results of Review We preliminarily determine that, for the period July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012, the following dumping margin exists: Manufacturer/Exporter Weighted-average margin (percent) Akzo Nobel Functional Chemicals B.V. ......... 0.64 Disclosure and Public Comment pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES The Department will disclose to parties to the proceeding any calculations performed in connection with these preliminary results within five days after the date of publication of this notice.3 Interested parties may submit case briefs to the Department in response to these preliminary results no later than 30 days after the publication of these preliminary results.4 Rebuttal briefs, the content of which is limited to the issues raised in the case briefs, must be filed within five days from the deadline date for the submission of case briefs.5 Parties who submit arguments in this proceeding are requested to submit with 1 See Letter from CP Kelco to the Secretary of Commerce, entitled ‘‘Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from the Netherlands: CP Kelco BV No Shipment Letter,’’ dated November 13, 2012. 2 See Memorandum to the File regarding No Shipments Inquiry for CP Kelco B.V., dated July 18, 2013. 3 See 19 CFR 351.224(b) 4 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii). 5 See 19 CFR 351.309(d)(1) and (2).

In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. Further, instead of rescinding the review with respect to CP Kelco, we find it appropriate to complete the review and issue liquidation instruction to CBP concerning entries for CP Kelco following issuance of the final results of review. If we continue to find that CP Kelco had no shipments of subject merchandise in the final results, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by CP Kelco, but exported by other parties at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate.17 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. We will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis.18 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.19 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments 15 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 17 See, e.g., Magnesium Metal From the Russian Federation: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 26922, 26923 (May 13, 2010), unchanged in Magnesium Metal From the Russian Federation: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 56989 (September 17, 2010). 18 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2) 19 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. 16 For E:\FR\FM\09AUN1.SGM 09AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 154 / Friday, August 9, 2013 / Notices of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the company listed above will be that established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or in the investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be the allothers rate of 14.57 percent, which is the all-others rate established in the investigation.20 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Purified Carboxymethylcellulose From the Netherlands: Preliminary 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary No 
Shipment Determination; 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 purified 
carboxymethylcellulose (purified CMC) from the Netherlands. The period 
of review (POR) is July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012. The review 
covers two producers/exporters of the subject merchandise, Akzo Nobel 
Functional Chemicals, B.V. (Akzo Nobel) and CP Kelco, B.V. (CP Kelco).
    We preliminarily determine that sales of subject merchandise by 
Akzo Nobel were made at less than normal value and CP Kelco had no 
shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.

DATES: Effective Date: August 9, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Drury or Angelica Mendoza, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
0195 or (202) 482-3019, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is all purified CMC. The 
merchandise subject to the order is currently classified in the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at subheading 
3912.31.00. This tariff classification is provided for convenience and 
Customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the 
order is dispositive. 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, titled 
``Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review: Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from the 
Netherlands'' (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), which is issued 
concurrent with and hereby adopted by this notice.
    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). 
Access to IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and is available to all parties 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/frn/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the 
electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Constructed 
export price (CEP) is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the 
Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the 
Act. In accordance with section 773(b) of the Act, we disregarded 
certain sales made by Akzo Nobel in the home market which were made at 
below-cost prices. To determine the appropriate comparison method, the 
Department applied a ``differential pricing'' analysis and has 
preliminarily determined to apply the average-to-transaction method to 
the portion of U.S. sales which passed the Cohen's d test and the 
average-to-average method to the remaining portion of U.S. sales which 
did not pass the Cohen's d test in order to calculate Akzo Nobel's 
weighted-average dumping margin. For a full description of the 
methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

[[Page 48650]]

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    The Department received a timely submission from CP Kelco reporting 
to the Department that it did not sell or export the subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR.\1\ On April 19, 2013, 
we transmitted a ``No-Shipment Inquiry'' to U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) regarding this company. Pursuant to this inquiry, the 
Department received no notification from CBP of entries of subject 
merchandise from CP Kelco within the ten-day deadline.\2\ Accordingly, 
based on record evidence, we preliminarily determine that CP Kelco had 
no shipments during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Letter from CP Kelco to the Secretary of Commerce, 
entitled ``Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from the Netherlands: CP 
Kelco BV No Shipment Letter,'' dated November 13, 2012.
    \2\ See Memorandum to the File regarding No Shipments Inquiry 
for CP Kelco B.V., dated July 18, 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with our practice, the Department finds that it is not 
appropriate to rescind the review with respect to CP Kelco, but rather 
to complete the review with respect to CP Kelco and issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.

Preliminary Results of Review

    We preliminarily determine that, for the period July 1, 2011, 
through June 30, 2012, the following dumping margin exists:

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

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

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries.\14\ We have calculated, whenever possible, an exporter/
importer (or customer)-specific assessment rate or value for 
merchandise subject to this review as described below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    For CEP sales, we divide the total dumping margins for the reviewed 
sales by the total entered value of those reviewed sales for each 
importer. We will direct CBP to assess the resulting percentage margin 
against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise on each 
of that importer's POR entries.\15\

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\16\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Akzo Nobel and CP Kelco in these 
preliminary results of review for which these reviewed companies did 
not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. Further, instead of rescinding the review 
with respect to CP Kelco, we find it appropriate to complete the review 
and issue liquidation instruction to CBP concerning entries for CP 
Kelco following issuance of the final results of review. If we continue 
to find that CP Kelco had no shipments of subject merchandise in the 
final results, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries 
of merchandise produced by CP Kelco, but exported by other parties at 
the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-
others rate.\17\

Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Russian Federation: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 75 FR 56989 (September 17, 2010).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review. We will instruct CBP 
to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review if any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final 
results of this review is above de minimis. We will instruct CBP to 
liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which 
the assessment rate is de minimis.\18\ 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.\19\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon

[[Page 48651]]

of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of 
this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the company listed above will be 
that established in the final results of this review, except if the 
rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the 
meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate 
will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or in the 
investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
manufacturers or exporters will continue to be the all-others rate of 
14.57 percent, which is the all-others rate established in the 
investigation.\20\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a 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 this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

     Dated: August 1, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
