WREIER-AVILES on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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.11 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., is 0.50 percent or more) in the final results of this review, the Department will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).12 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importerspecific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. Where either the 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. For those companies not assigned a separate rate from a prior segment of the proceeding, the Department stated that they are not separate from the Vietnamwide entity and that the administrative review will continue for these companies. The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the Vietnam-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will 11 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 12 In VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:29 Mar 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 be liquidated at the Vietnam-wide rate.13 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. 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 Vietnam 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, which have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnam and non-Vietnam exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the Vietnamwide entity; and (4) for all non-Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnam exporter that supplied that non-Vietnam exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Dated: March 18, 2014. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

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. This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4). Enforcement and Compliance, formerly 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 small diameter graphite electrodes (graphite electrodes) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC), covering the period February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013. The Department has preliminarily determined that during the period of review (POR) certain companies covered by this review have made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value, and that other companies are now part of the PRC-wide entity.1 Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: March 24, 2014. 13 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 1 Due to the closure of the Federal Government in Washington, DC on March 17, 2014, the Department reached this determination on the next business day (i.e., March 18, 2014).1 Notification to Importers PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 56 / Monday, March 24, 2014 / Notices FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dmitry Vladimirov or Michael A. Romani, AD/CVD Operations, Office I, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–0665 or (202) 482–0198, respectively. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes all small diameter graphite electrodes with a nominal or actual diameter of 400 millimeters (16 inches) or less and graphite pin joining systems for small diameter graphite electrodes. Small diameter graphite electrodes and graphite pin joining systems for small diameter graphite electrodes that are subject to the order are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 8545.11.0010, 3801.10, and 8545.11.0020. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.2 Partial Rescission of the Administrative Review Based on the withdrawal of the requests for review and because the companies previously established their entitlement to a separate rate, we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to 17 companies named in the Initiation Notice 3 and listed in the attachment to this notice as Appendix II. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments WREIER-AVILES on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES UK Carbon and Graphite Co., Ltd. (UKCG) filed a timely ‘‘no shipment’’ certification stating that it had no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise during the POR and requested that we rescind the administrative review with respect to 14:29 Mar 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 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). For the Fangda Group,7 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, normal value has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is made available to the public via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at https://iaaccess.trade.gov, and is available to all parties in the Department’s Central Records Unit, located at Room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 UKCG.4 We subsequently confirmed with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) the ‘‘no shipment’’ claim made by UKCG.5 Based on the certification provided by UKCG and our analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily determine that UKCG did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. In addition, we find that, consistent with the refinement to our assessment practice in non-market economy cases, further discussed below, it is appropriate not to rescind the review in part in these circumstances but, rather, to complete the review with respect to UKCG and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.6 PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15945 Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be found at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/.

Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case briefs. 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 such comments, 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 these preliminary results.11 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.12 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.13 WREIER-AVILES on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 10 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 11 This administrative review was initiated on March 29, 2013, prior to the effective date of May 10, 2013, set forth in Definition of Factual Information and Time Limits for Submission of Factual Information, 78 FR 21246 (April 10, 2013), establishing the new time limits for the submission of factual information to value factors of production. 12 See, e.g., 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. 13 See 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3). VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:29 Mar 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 Assessment Rates Upon issuing the final results of review, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.14 If a respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and, where possible, the total entered value of those sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Specifically, the Department will apply the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., on the basis of monthly average-to-average comparisons using only the transactions associated with that importer with offsets being provided for non-dumped comparisons.15 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.16 The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases.17 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, 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 (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of review. 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 14 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice 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.

Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the People's Republic of 
China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and Partial Rescission; 2012-2013

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, formerly 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 small diameter 
graphite electrodes (graphite electrodes) from the People's Republic of 
China (PRC), covering the period February 1, 2012, through January 31, 
2013. The Department has preliminarily determined that during the 
period of review (POR) certain companies covered by this review have 
made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value, and that 
other companies are now part of the PRC-wide entity.\1\ Interested 
parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Due to the closure of the Federal Government in Washington, 
DC on March 17, 2014, the Department reached this determination on 
the next business day (i.e., March 18, 2014).\1\

DATES: Effective Date: March 24, 2014.

(202) 482-0665 or (202) 482-0198, respectively.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order includes all small diameter 
graphite electrodes with a nominal or actual diameter of 400 
millimeters (16 inches) or less and graphite pin joining systems for 
small diameter graphite electrodes. Small diameter graphite electrodes 
and graphite pin joining systems for small diameter graphite electrodes 
that are subject to the order are currently classified under the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 
8545.11.0010, 3801.10, and 8545.11.0020. While the HTSUS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written 
description of the scope of the order is dispositive. A full 
description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.\2\

Administrative Review: Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the 
People's Republic of China'' dated concurrently with this notice 
(Preliminary Decision Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by this 
notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of the Administrative Review

    Based on the withdrawal of the requests for review and because the 
companies previously established their entitlement to a separate rate, 
we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to 17 
companies named in the Initiation Notice \3\ and listed in the 
attachment to this notice as Appendix II.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 
19197 (March 29, 2013) (Initiation Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    UK Carbon and Graphite Co., Ltd. (UKCG) filed a timely ``no 
shipment'' certification stating that it had no exports, sales, or 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR and requested that we 
rescind the administrative review with respect to UKCG.\4\ We 
subsequently confirmed with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
the ``no shipment'' claim made by UKCG.\5\ Based on the certification 
provided by UKCG and our analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily 
determine that UKCG did not have any reviewable transactions during the 
POR. In addition, we find that, consistent with the refinement to our 
assessment practice in non-market economy cases, further discussed 
below, it is appropriate not to rescind the review in part in these 
circumstances but, rather, to complete the review with respect to UKCG 
and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of 
the review.\6\

Methodology
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See UKCG's letter, dated April 4, 2013.
    \5\ See CBP message 3163308, dated June 12, 2013.
    \6\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011); see also the 
``Assessment Rates'' section below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For the 
Fangda Group,\7\ 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, normal value has been 
calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full 
description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is 
a public document and is made available to the public via Enforcement 
and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized 
Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is available to 
registered users at https://iaaccess.trade.gov, and is available to all 
parties in the Department's Central Records Unit, located at Room 7046 
of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete 
version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be found at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and the electronic versions of 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ The Fangda Group consists of Beijing Fangda Carbon Tech Co., 
Ltd., Chengdu Rongguang Carbon Co., Ltd., Fangda Carbon New Material 
Co., Ltd., Fushun Carbon Co., Ltd., and Hefei Carbon Co., Ltd. We 
refer to the Fangda Group as a single entity pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.401(f)(1). See Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes From the 
People's Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value, Postponement of Final Determination, and 
Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances, in 
Part, 73 FR 49408, 49411-12 (August 21, 2008) (where we collapsed 
the individual members of the Fangda Group), unchanged in Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Affirmative 
Determination of Critical Circumstances: Small Diameter Graphite 
Electrodes from the People's Republic of China, 74 FR 2049 (January 
14, 2009).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We determined that Fushun Jinly is not entitled to a separate rate 
and should be treated as part of the PRC entity. For a full discussion 
of the rationale underlying our decision, see Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Standard Time within 30 days after the date of publication of this 
notice.\10\ Requests should contain: (1) The party's name, address and 
telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of 
issues to be discussed. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to 
those raised in the respective case briefs.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 such comments, 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 these preliminary results.\11\ 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.\12\ 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.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ This administrative review was initiated on March 29, 2013, 
prior to the effective date of May 10, 2013, set forth in Definition 
of Factual Information and Time Limits for Submission of Factual 
Information, 78 FR 21246 (April 10, 2013), establishing the new time 
limits for the submission of factual information to value factors of 
production.
    \12\ See, e.g., Glycine From the People's Republic of China:

Rescission, in Part, 72 FR 58809 (October 17, 2007), and 
accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 2.
    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of review, the Department will 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review.\14\ If a respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate an importer-specific 
assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales and, where 
possible, the total entered value of those sales in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1). Specifically, the Department will apply the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Final Modification for 
Reviews, i.e., on the basis of monthly average-to-average comparisons 
using only the transactions associated with that importer with offsets 
being provided for non-dumped comparisons.\15\ Where an importer- (or 
customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \15\ See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).
    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in 
NME cases.\17\ Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries 
that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by 
companies individually examined during this review, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In 
addition, 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 (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of 
review.

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 section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for Xinghe County Muzi Carbon Co., Ltd., and the five companies 
comprising the Fangda Group will be the rate established in the final 
results of this administrative review (except, if the rate is zero or 
de minimis, then no cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above 
that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-
specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that 
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 cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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.
    This administrative review and notice are in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.
