The review covers one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise, Ercros S.A. We preliminarily determine that Ercros S.A. had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: March 28, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are chlorinated isocyanurates. Chlorinated isocyanurates are derivatives of cynauric acid, described as chlorinated s-triazine triones. There are three primary chemical compositions of chlorinated isocyanurates: (1) Trichloroisocyanuric acid (Cl3(NCO)3), (2) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (dihydrate) (NaCl2(NCO)3 2H2O), and (3) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (anhydrous) (NaCl2(NCO)3). Chlorinated isocyanurates are available in powder, granular, and tableted forms. The order covers all chlorinated isocyanurates. Chlorinated isocyanurates are currently classifiable under subheadings 2933.69.6015, 2933.69.6021, and 2933.69.6050 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The tariff classification 2933.69.6015 covers sodium dichloroisocyanurates 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 46566 (August 1, 2013).

The tariff classifications 2933.69.6021 and 2933.69.6050 represent basket categories that include chlorinated isocyanurates and other compounds including an unfused triazine ring. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments The Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of this administrative review of the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isos from Spain covering one company, Ercros S.A.2 The Department received a timely submission from Ercros S.A. reporting to the Department that it did not sell or export the subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.3 On December 17, 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 Ercros S.A. within the ten-day deadline. Accordingly, based on record evidence, we preliminarily determine that Ercros S.A. had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Consistent with our practice, the Department finds that it is not appropriate to rescind the review with respect to Ercros S.A., but rather to complete the review with respect to Ercros S.A. and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.4 Public Comment Interested parties may submit cases briefs no later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.5 Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed not later than five days after the date for filing case briefs.6 Parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of 2 See id.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are chlorinated isocyanurates. 
Chlorinated isocyanurates are derivatives of cynauric acid, described 
as chlorinated s-triazine triones. There are three primary chemical 
compositions of chlorinated isocyanurates: (1) Trichloroisocyanuric 
acid (Cl3(NCO)3), (2) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (dihydrate) 
(NaCl2(NCO)3 2H2O), and (3) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (anhydrous) 
(NaCl2(NCO)3). Chlorinated isocyanurates are available in powder, 
granular, and tableted forms. The order covers all chlorinated 
isocyanurates. Chlorinated isocyanurates are currently classifiable 
under subheadings 2933.69.6015, 2933.69.6021, and 2933.69.6050 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The tariff 
classification 2933.69.6015 covers sodium dichloroisocyanurates 
(anhydrous and dihydrate forms) and trichloroisocyanuric acid. The 
tariff classifications 2933.69.6021 and 2933.69.6050 represent basket 
categories that include chlorinated isocyanurates and other compounds 
including an unfused triazine ring. Although the HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description 
of the scope of the order is dispositive.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    The Department published in the Federal Register a notice of 
initiation of this administrative review of the antidumping duty order 
on chlorinated isos from Spain covering one company, Ercros S.A.\2\ The 
Department received a timely submission from Ercros S.A. reporting to 
the Department that it did not sell or export the subject merchandise 
to the United States during the POR.\3\ On December 17, 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 Ercros S.A. within the ten-day deadline. Accordingly, 
based on record evidence, we preliminarily determine that Ercros S.A. 
had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Consistent with 
our practice, the Department finds that it is not appropriate to 
rescind the review with respect to Ercros S.A., but rather to complete 
the review with respect to Ercros S.A. and issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.\4\

Act.

Assessment Rates

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\10\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Ercros for which this company 
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 Ercros S.A., we find it 
appropriate to complete the review and issue liquidation instruction to 
CBP concerning entries for Ercros S.A. following issuance of the final 
results of review. If we continue to find that Ercros S.A. had no 
shipments of subject merchandise in the final results, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by

[[Page 17503]]

Ercros S.A., but exported by other parties at the rate for the 
intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate.\11\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments 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 Ercros S.A. will 
remain unchanged from the rate assigned to the company in the most 
recently completed review of that company; (2) for other manufacturers 
and exporters covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published 
for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which 
that manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not 
a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding for the manufacturer of subject merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 24.83 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
investigation.\12\ These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall

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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
