Tolling of Deadlines for Preliminary Results As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from October 1, through October 16, 2013.3 Therefore, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by 16 days. If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with the Department’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now November 18, 2013. 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’’). Export prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, hereby adopted by this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘IA ACCESS’’). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// iaaccess.trade.gov. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is also available 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 at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn.

All submissions, with limited exceptions, must be filed electronically using IA ACCESS. An electronically filed document must be received successfully in its entirety by 5 p.m. Eastern Time (‘‘ET’’) on the due date. Documents excepted from the electronic submission requirements must be filed manually (i.e., in paper form) with the APO/Dockets Unit in Room 1870 and stamped with the date and time of receipt by 5 p.m. ET on the due date.13 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 briefs, 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.14 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 12 See 19 CFR 351.310(d). Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). 14 The Department recently announced a change in the deadline to submit publicly available information to value factors of production under 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(ii). To all segments initiated on or after May 10, 2013, the deadline to submit publicly available information to value factors of production in an administrative review is 30 days prior to the scheduled preliminary results of review. This change will not apply to the first administrative review of wood flooring due to the effective date. See Definition of Factual Information and Time Limits for Submission of Factual Information, 78 FR 21246 (April 10, 2013). 13 See PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 deadline for submission of surrogate value information has passed.15 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.16 Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.17 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, the Department will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). In these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in the Final Modification for Reviews.18 Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate we determine in the final results of this review. The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME antidumping duty cases.19 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for merchandise that was not reported 15 See 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. 16 See 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3). 17 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 18 See Antidumping Proceeding Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (‘‘Final Modification for Reviews.’’). 19 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), for a full discussion of this practice.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) is conducting the fourth administrative review and the first new shipper review (‘‘NSR’’) of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).1 There is one participating mandatory respondent in this review, the Shanghai Wells Group.2 We selected seven additional companies as mandatory respondents AGENCY: 1 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 58111 (October 6, 2008) (‘‘Order’’). 2 The Department previously found that Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shanghai Wells’’), Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (‘‘HK Wells’’) and Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (USA) (‘‘Wells USA’’) are affiliated and that Shanghai Wells and HK Wells comprise a single entity (collectively, ‘‘Shanghai Wells Group’’). Because there were no changes in this review to the facts that supported that decision, we continue to find Shanghai Wells, HK Wells, and USA Wells are affiliated and that Shanghai Wells and HK Wells comprise a single entity. See Steel Wire Garment Hangers From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Rescission, in Part, of the First Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 68758, 68761 (November 9, 2010), unchanged in First Administrative Review of Steel Wire Garment Hangers From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 27994, 27996 (May 13, 2011) (‘‘Hangers 1st AR’’).

The Department has preliminarily determined that Yingqing and Shanghai Wells sold subject merchandise in the United States at prices below normal value during the period of review (‘‘POR’’), October 1, 2011, through September 30, 2012. Additionally, seven companies were selected for review, but did not fully cooperate and have been determined to be part of the PRC-wide entity.4 If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from October 1, through October 16, 2013.5 Therefore, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by 16 days. If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with the Department’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now November 18, 2013.6 DATES: Effective: November 25, 2013.

to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal 
Government from October 1, through October 16, 2013.\3\ Therefore, all

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

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''). 
Export prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in 
accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market 
economy (``NME'') within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV 
has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, hereby 
adopted by this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public 
document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service 
System (``IA ACCESS''). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at 
http://iaaccess.trade.gov. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is also 
available 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 at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum 
and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

of issues raised in any briefs, 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.\14\ 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.\15\ 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.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ The Department recently announced a change in the deadline 
to submit publicly available information to value factors of 
production under 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(ii). To all segments initiated 
on or after May 10, 2013, the deadline to submit publicly available 
information to value factors of production in an administrative 
review is 30 days prior to the scheduled preliminary results of 
review. This change will not apply to the first administrative 
review of wood flooring due to the effective date. See Definition of 
Factual Information and Time Limits for Submission of Factual 
Information, 78 FR 21246 (April 10, 2013).

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\17\ The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this 
review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final 
results of this review, the Department will calculate an importer-
specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount 
of antidumping duties calculated for the importer's examined sales and 
the total entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in the Final Modification 
for Reviews.\18\ Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- (or customer-) specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. 
We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject 
merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate we 
determine in the final results of this review.

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

    The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in 
NME antidumping duty cases.\19\ Pursuant to this refinement in 
practice, for merchandise that was not reported

[[Page 70271]]

in the U.S. sales databases submitted by an exporter individually 
examined during this review, but that entered under the case number of 
that exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined exporter's cash 
deposit rate), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such 
entries at the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, pursuant to this 
refinement, 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 number will be liquidated at the 
PRC-wide rate.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above the cash deposit rate will be their respective rate 
established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) no cash deposit will 
be required; (2) for previously investigated PRC and non-PRC exporters 
not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be that for the PRC-wide entity; and (4) 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 that 
supplied that non-PRC exporter. These 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 
these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: November 18, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
