SUMMARY: On May 13, 2013, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty on frontseating service valves from the People’s maindgalligan on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:03 Dec 06, 2013 Jkt 232001 Republic of China.1 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 continues to find that DunAn did not have reviewable entries during the POR. Additionally, we find that Sanhua made sales in the United States at prices below normal value (‘‘NV’’). Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made changes to our margin calculations for Sanhua. The final weighted-average dumping margin for this review is listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of the Review.’’ DATES: Effective Date: December 9, 2013.

Background On May 13, 2013, the Department published the Preliminary Results. At that time, we invited interested parties to comment on our Preliminary Results. Subsequent to the Preliminary Results, we conducted a verification of Sanhua’s questionnaire responses in Xialiquan Village, Zhejiang Province, People’s Republic of China from August 5 through August 9, 2013.2 We received case briefs from ParkerHannifin Corporation (‘‘Petitioner’’) and Sanhua on October 17, 2013,3 and rebuttal briefs from the same parties on October 23, 2013.4 At Sanhua’s request, we held a hearing on October 29, 2013.5 1 See Frontseating Service Valves From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2011– 2012, 78 FR 27954 (May 13, 2013) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). 2 See Memorandum to Melissa Skinner, ‘‘2011– 2012 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Frontseating Service Valves (‘‘FSVs’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’): Verification of Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd.,’’ dated September 23, 2013. 3 See letter from Petitioner, ‘‘Frontseating Service Valves from the People’s Republic of China; A–570– 933; Petitioner’s Case Brief,’’ dated October 17, 2013; see also letter from Sanhua, ‘‘Frontseating Service Valves from the People’s Republic of China; A–570–933; Case Brief by Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd.,’’ dated October 17, 2013. 4 See letter from Petitioner, ‘‘Frontseating Service Valves from the People’s Republic of China; A–570– 933; Petitioner’s Rebuttal Case Brief,’’ dated October 23, 2013; see also letter from Sanhua, ‘‘Frontseating Service Valves from the People’s Republic of China; A–570–933; Rebuttal Brief of Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd.,’’ dated October 23, 2013. 5 See hearing transcript, ‘‘In the Matter of the Antidumping Duty Order on Frontseating Service PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73825 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order is frontseating service valves, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain parts thereof. 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. A full written description of the scope of the order is contained in the memorandum from Edward C. Yang, Office Director, Office VII, Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, ‘‘Frontseating Service Valves from the People’s Republic of China: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the 2011–2012 Administrative Review’’ (‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’), which is hereby adopted by this notice and incorporated herein by reference. The written description is dispositive. Final Determination of No Reviewable Entries As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a no-shipment certification from DunAn.6 The company reported that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) confirmed that it did not identify evidence of shipments from DunAn. Following publication of the Preliminary Results, we received no comments from interested parties regarding DunAn. As a consequence, and because the record contains no evidence to the contrary, we continue to find that DunAn did not make reviewable entries during the POR. Accordingly, consistent with the Department’s refinement to its Valves (‘‘FSVs’’) from the PRC (A–570–933) (4/1/2011–3/31/2012),’’ filed November 6, 2013; see also Frontseating Service Valves from the People’s Republic of China; A–570–933; Request for a Hearing by Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd.. 6 See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 27954.
