SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) is conducting the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) for the period of review (‘‘POR’’) April 1, 2012, through March 31, 2013. The Department preliminarily determines that sales have been made below normal value (‘‘NV’’). Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain activated carbon. The products are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheading 3802.10.00.1 Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order remains dispositive. Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Constructed export prices and 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, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) preliminarily determines that non-oriented electrical steel (NOES) from the People’s Republic of China (the PRC) is being, or is likely to be, sold to the United States at less than fair value (LTFV), as provided in section 733(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). The period of investigation (POI) is January 1, 2013, through June 30, 2013. The dumping margin is shown in the ‘‘Preliminary Determination and Suspension of Liquidation’’ section of this notice. Interested parties are invited to comment on this preliminary determination. DATES: Effective May 22, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Scope of the Investigation The merchandise subject to this investigation consists of non-oriented electrical steel (NOES), which includes cold-rolled, flat-rolled, alloy steel products, whether or not in coils, regardless of width, having an actual thickness of 0.20 mm or more, in which the core loss is substantially equal in any direction of magnetization in the plane of the material. The term ‘‘substantially equal’’ means that the cross grain direction of core loss is no more than 1.5 times the straight grain direction (i.e., the rolling direction) of core loss. NOES has a magnetic permeability that does not exceed 1.65 Tesla when tested at a field of 800 A/ m (equivalent to 10 Oersteds) along (i.e., parallel to) the rolling direction of the sheet (i.e., B800 value). NOES contains by weight more than 1.00 percent of silicon but less than 3.5 percent of silicon, not more than 0.08 percent of PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29421 carbon, and not more than 1.5 percent of aluminum. NOES has a surface oxide coating, to which an insulation coating may be applied. NOES is subject to this investigation whether it is fully processed (i.e., fully annealed to develop final magnetic properties) or semi-processed (i.e., finished to final thickness and physical form but not fully annealed to develop final magnetic properties). Fully processed NOES is typically made to the requirements of ASTM specification A 677, Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) specification C 2552, and/or International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) specification 60404– 8–4. Semi-processed NOES is typically made to the requirements of ASTM specification A 683. However, the scope of this investigation is not limited to merchandise meeting the ASTM, JIS and IEC specifications noted immediately above. NOES is sometimes referred to as cold-rolled non-oriented (CRNO), nongrain oriented (NGO), non-oriented (NO), or cold-rolled non-grain oriented (CRNGO) electrical steel. These terms are interchangeable. Excluded from the scope of this investigation are flat-rolled products not in coils that, prior to importation into the United States, have been cut to a shape and undergone all punching, coating, or other operations necessary for classification in Chapter 85 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) as a part (i.e., lamination) for use in a device such as a motor, generator, or transformer. The subject merchandise is provided for in subheadings 7225.19.0000, 7226.19.1000, and 7226.19.9000 of the HTSUS. Subject merchandise may also be entered under subheadings 7225.50.8085, 7225.99.0090, 7226.92.5000, 7226.92.7050, 7226.92.8050, 7226.99.0180 of the HTSUS. Although HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope is dispositive.

Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012-
2013

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the 
Department of Commerce (``Department'') is conducting the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain 
activated carbon from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') for the 
period of review (``POR'') April 1, 2012, through March 31, 2013. The 
Department preliminarily determines that sales have been made below 
normal value (``NV''). Interested parties are invited to comment on 
these preliminary results.

DATES: Effective Date: May 22, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bob Palmer or Frances Veith, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution 
Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-9068, or (202) 
482-4295, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is certain activated carbon. 
The products are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') subheading 3802.10.00.\1\ 
Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, the written description of the scope of the order remains 
dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Activated Carbon 
from the People's Republic of China,'' (``Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum'') from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K. 
Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance, issued concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this 
notice, for a complete description of the Scope of the Order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). 
Constructed export prices and 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, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 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 https://iaaccess.trade.gov/login.aspx

Preliminary Results of the Review

    The Department determines that the following preliminary dumping 
margins exist:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ In the second administrative review of the Order, the 
Department determined that it would calculate per-unit assessment 
and cash deposit rates for all future reviews. See Certain Activated 
Carbon From the People's Republic of China: Final Results and 
Partial Rescission of Second Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 
75 FR 70208, 70211 (November 17, 2010).
    \3\ In the third administrative review, the Department found 
Jacobi Carbons AB, Tianjin Jacobi International Trading Co. Ltd., 
and Jacobi Carbons Industry (Tianjin) are a single entity and, 
because there were no changes to the facts which supported that 
decision, we continued to find these companies part of a single 
entity in the fourth and fifth administrative reviews. Because there 
have been no changes to the facts which supported that decision in 
the present review, we are continuing to treat the companies as a 
single entity in this review. See Certain Activated Carbon From the

    \4\ In the first administrative review, the Department found 
Beijing Pacific Activated Carbon Products Co., Ltd., Ningxia 
Guanghua Cherishmet Activated Carbon Co., Ltd., and Ningxia Guanghua 
Activated Carbon Co., Ltd. are a single entity and, because there 
were no changes to the facts which supported that decision, we 
continued to find these companies to be part of a single entity in 
subsequent reviews. Because there have been no changes to the facts 
which supported that decision in the present review, we are 
continuing to treat the companies as a single entity in this review.

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.\10\ 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).\11\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-
specific 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.\12\ The Department recently announced a refinement to its 
assessment practice in NME cases.\13\ 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.\14\ Additionally, 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.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \11\ In 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\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties,

    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 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) For each specific 
company listed above, 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

[[Page 29421]]

zero 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 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.
    This administrative review and notice are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: May 16, 2014.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
