We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review. If Borusan’s or Toscelik’s weightedaverage dumping margins are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, we 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 the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where either a 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the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 Borusan and Toscelik will be equal to the weightedaverage dumping margin established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for other manufacturers and exporters covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the companyspecific 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 less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, then 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 14.74 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.12 These deposit requirements, when imposed, 12 See Antidumping Duty Order; Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and Tube Products From Turkey, 51 FR 17784, 17784 (May 15, 1986).

If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be notified of the date and time for the hearing to be held at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230.5 The Department will issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of our analysis of the issues raised by the parties in their comments, within 120 days after the publication of these preliminary results, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1). Assessment Rate In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b), upon issuance of the final results of the review, the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. If ASB’s weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 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 5 See PO 00000 19 CFR 351.310. Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent). Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage 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. 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. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent for which they did not know that their 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. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 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 ASB will be the rate established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (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 recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 8.54 percent, the all-others rate established E:\FR\FM\25JNN1.SGM 25JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 122 / Wednesday, June 25, 2014 / Notices in the investigation.6 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on aluminum extrusions from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).1 The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is May 1, 2012, through April 30, 2013. The review covers the following exporters of subject merchandise: mandatory respondents Guangzhou Jangho Curtain Wall System Engineering Co., Ltd. and Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd. (collectively ‘‘Jangho’’), and the single entity comprised of Guang Ya Aluminum Industrial Co., Ltd. (‘‘Guang Ya’’), Foshan Guangcheng Aluminum Co., Ltd. (‘‘Guangcheng’’), Kong Ah International Co., Ltd. (‘‘Kong Ah’’), and Guang Ya Aluminum Industries (Hong Kong) Ltd. (‘‘Guang Ya HK’’) (collectively ‘‘Guang Ya Group’’); Guangdong Zhongya Aluminum Co., Ltd. (‘‘Zhongya’’), Zhongya Shaped Aluminum (HK) Holding Ltd. (‘‘Shaped Aluminum’’), and Karlton Aluminum Co., Ltd. (‘‘Karlton’’) (collectively ‘‘Zhongya’’), and Foshan Nanhai Xinya Aluminum & Stainless Steel Product Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xinya’’) (collectively ‘‘Guang Ya Group/Zhongya/Xinya’’); and Kromet International, Inc. (‘‘Kromet’’), a voluntary respondent. The Department preliminarily finds that Kromet did not make sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value. In addition, the Department preliminarily determines that Jangho and Guang Ya Group/ Zhongya/Xinya failed to demonstrate that they were eligible for separate-rate status and thus have been included in the PRC-wide entity. We also preliminarily determine that three companies, Hong Kong Gree Electric Appliances Sales Limited (‘‘Gree’’), Jiuyuan Co., Ltd. (‘‘Jiuyuan’’), and Shenzhen Hudson Technology Development Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shenzhen Hudson’’) had no shipments. AGENCY: 1 The Department initiated this review on June 28, 2013.

751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Constructed 
export price (CEP) is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the 
Act. Normal Value (NV) is calculated in accordance with section 773 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 http://iaaccess.trade.gov and 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 and electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that a 
weighted-average dumping margin of 1.53 percent exists for ASB for the 
period May 1, 2012, through April 30, 2013.

    The Department will issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of our analysis of the issues raised by 
the parties in their comments, within 120 days after the publication of 
these preliminary results, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

Assessment Rate

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b), upon issuance of the final 
results of the review, the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review. If ASB's weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific 
ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount 
of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total 
entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). 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 (i.e., 0.50 percent). 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. 
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.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent for which they 
did not know that their 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. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 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 ASB will be the 
rate established in the final results of this administrative review; 
(2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered 
in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (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 recent period for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 8.54 percent, the all-
others rate established

in the investigation.\6\ 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    These preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: June 18, 2014.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
