Our calculations are discussed in detail in the accompanying final calculation memorandum.2 Final Results of the Review We determine that a weighted-average dumping margin of 0.55 percent exists for entries of subject merchandise that were produced and/or exported by JBL Canada and that entered, or were withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the period May 1, 2012, through April 30, 2013. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Assessment Rates Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in accordance with the final results of this review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 356.8(a), the Department intends to issue appropriate appraisement instructions for the respondent subject to this review directly to CBP 41 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review. As we stated in the Preliminary Results, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the examined sales to that importer.3 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.50 percent). Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). 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The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the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) 2 See Memorandum to the File entitled, ‘‘Final Results Margin Calculations for Jungbunzlauer Canada Inc.,’’ dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice. 3 See Preliminary Results, 79 FR at 10094.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) is amending the preliminary determination of the lessthan-fair-value (‘‘LTFV’’) investigation of 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane (‘‘tetrafluoroethane’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) to correct a significant ministerial error with respect to our preliminary critical circumstances determination. The period of investigation is April 1, 2013, through September 30, 2013. DATES: Effective July 1, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 29, 2014, the Department published its Preliminary Determination.1 On May 22, AGENCY: 1 See 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluroethane From the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Investigation, Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances, in Part, and Continued Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\01JYN1.SGM 01JYN1 37288 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 126 / Tuesday, July 1, 2014 / Notices 2014, the Department disclosed to interested parties its calculations for the Preliminary Determination. On May 27, 2014, we received ministerial error comments from Mexichem Fluor, Inc. (‘‘Petitioner’’) alleging that the Department made certain significant ministerial errors in the Preliminary Determination. No other party made an allegation of ministerial errors. On May 30, 2014, Weitron International Refrigeration Equipment (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. provided reply comments to Petitioner’s allegation. After reviewing the allegations, we determine that the Preliminary Determination included a significant ministerial error with respect to our preliminary critical circumstances determination. Therefore, we made a change, as described below, to the Preliminary Determination. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Investigation The product subject to this investigation is 1,1,1,2Tetrafluoroethane, R-134a, or its chemical equivalent, regardless of form, type, or purity level. The chemical formula for 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane is CF3-CH2F, and the Chemical Abstracts Service (‘‘CAS’’) registry number is CAS 811–97–2. 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane is sold under a number of trade names including Klea 134a and Zephex 134a (Mexichem Fluor); Genetron 134a (Honeywell); Suva 134a, Dymel 134a, and Dymel P134a (DuPont); Solkane 134a (Solvay); and Forane 134a (Arkema). Generically, 1,1,1,2tetrafluoroethane has been sold as Fluorocarbon 134a, R-134a, HFC-134a, HF A-134a, Refrigerant 134a, and UN3159. Merchandise covered by the scope of this investigation is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) at subheading 2903.39.2020. Although the HTSUS subheading and CAS registry number are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope is dispositive. Analysis of Significant Ministerial Error Allegation A ministerial error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ‘‘an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.’’ With respect to preliminary determinations in investigations, 19 CFR 351.224(e) Postponement of Final Determination, 79 FR 30817 (May 29, 2014) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:00 Jun 30, 2014 Jkt 232001 provides that the Department ‘‘will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination . . .’’ A significant ministerial error is defined as an error, the correction of which, singly or in combination with other errors, would result in: (1) A change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the antidumping duty rate calculated in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination; or (2) a difference between an antidumping duty rate of zero (or de minimis) and an antidumping duty rate of greater than de minimis or vice versa.2 As explained further in the Ministerial Error Memorandum issued concurrently with this Notice,3 we determine that the Preliminary Determination contained an error with respect to our preliminary critical circumstances calculation. Correction of this error results in a determination that Bluestar’s imports were ‘‘massive’’ during the comparison period and changes the preliminary critical circumstances determination from a negative to an affirmative determination for Bluestar.4 The Department considers this ministerial error to be significant warranting an amendment to our preliminary critical circumstances determination with respect to Bluestar. The Department does not consider any of the other alleged ministerial errors to be significant within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(g).5 Amended Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances The Department determines that there was a significant ministerial error in the critical circumstances calculation for Bluestar in the Preliminary Determination. Consequently, we are amending the critical circumstances 2 See 19 CFR 351.224(g). Memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, from James C.

Specifically, we found an unintentional error in our calculation under the statutory criteria involving massive imports over a relatively short period.6 In our corrected calculation of Bluestar’s massive import analysis, we found that imports based on Bluestar’s reported shipments of merchandise under consideration increased during the comparison period by more than 15 percent over its respective imports in the base period.7 Therefore, we amend our preliminarily determination and find there also to be massive imports for Bluestar, pursuant to section 733(e)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.206(c)(2)(i). Accordingly, as both conditions under section 733(e)(1)(A)(ii) and 733(e)(1)(B) of the Act have been satisfied, we find that critical circumstances exist with respect to Bluestar. Suspension of Liquidation The collection of cash deposits and suspension of liquidation will be revised, in accordance with section 733(e)(2) of the Act because we have preliminarily found that critical circumstances exist with regard to imports exported by Bluestar. We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to suspend liquidation of all entries 8 of tetrafluoroethane from the PRC, that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date which is 90 days before the date on which the suspension of liquidation was first ordered (i.e., May 29, 2014, the date of publication in the Federal Register of the notice of an affirmative preliminary determination that tetrafluoroethane is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at LTFV). We will also instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the estimated preliminary antidumping duty rate reflected in the Preliminary Determination. This suspension of liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. 6 See section 733(e)(1)(B). Ministerial Error Memorandum, Allegation 1 and Attachment. 8 In the Preliminary Determination, we found that critical circumstances exist with respect to all exporters except for Bluestar.

All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by the Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting date. Respondent Selection In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (‘‘APO’’) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review. In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, the Department finds that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, the Department will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, if the Department determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, the Department will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, the Department will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that requests a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that the Department may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. In order to provide parties additional certainty with respect to when the Department will exercise its discretion to extend this 90-day deadline, interested parties are advised that, with regard to reviews requested on the basis of anniversary months on or after July 2014, the Department does not intend to extend the 90-day deadline unless the requestor demonstrates that an extraordinary circumstance prevented it from submitting a timely withdrawal request. Determinations by the Department to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis. The Department is providing this notice on its Web site, as well as in its ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ notices, so that interested parties will be aware of the manner in which the Department intends to exercise its discretion in the future. Opportunity to Request a Review: Not later than the last day of July 2014,1 interested parties may request administrative review of the following orders, findings, or suspended 1 Or the next business day, if the deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday or any other day when the Department is closed.

Determination of Critical Circumstances

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is amending 
the preliminary determination of the less-than-fair-value (``LTFV'') 
investigation of 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane (``tetrafluoroethane'') from 
the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') to correct a significant 
ministerial error with respect to our preliminary critical 
circumstances determination. The period of investigation is April 1, 
2013, through September 30, 2013.

DATES: Effective July 1, 2014.

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

[[Page 37288]]

2014, the Department disclosed to interested parties its calculations 
for the Preliminary Determination. On May 27, 2014, we received 
ministerial error comments from Mexichem Fluor, Inc. (``Petitioner'') 
alleging that the Department made certain significant ministerial 
errors in the Preliminary Determination. No other party made an 
allegation of ministerial errors. On May 30, 2014, Weitron 
International Refrigeration Equipment (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. provided 
reply comments to Petitioner's allegation. After reviewing the 
allegations, we determine that the Preliminary Determination included a 
significant ministerial error with respect to our preliminary critical 
circumstances determination. Therefore, we made a change, as described 
below, to the Preliminary Determination.

Scope of the Investigation

    The product subject to this investigation is 1,1,1,2-
Tetrafluoroethane, R-134a, or its chemical equivalent, regardless of 
form, type, or purity level. The chemical formula for 1,1,1,2-
tetrafluoroethane is CF3-CH2F, and the Chemical 
Abstracts Service (``CAS'') registry number is CAS 811-97-2.
    1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane is sold under a number of trade names 
including Klea 134a and Zephex 134a (Mexichem Fluor); Genetron 134a 
(Honeywell); Suva 134a, Dymel 134a, and Dymel P134a (DuPont); Solkane 
134a (Solvay); and Forane 134a (Arkema). Generically, 1,1,1,2-
tetrafluoroethane has been sold as Fluorocarbon 134a, R-134a, HFC-134a, 
HF A-134a, Refrigerant 134a, and UN3159.
    Merchandise covered by the scope of this investigation is currently 
classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(``HTSUS'') at subheading 2903.39.2020. Although the HTSUS subheading 
and CAS registry number are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, the written description of the scope is dispositive.

Analysis of Significant Ministerial Error Allegation

    A ministerial error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ``an error 
in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error 
resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any 
other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.'' With respect to preliminary determinations in 
investigations, 19 CFR 351.224(e) provides that the Department ``will 
analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any 
significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination 
. . .'' A significant ministerial error is defined as an error, the 
correction of which, singly or in combination with other errors, would 
result in: (1) A change of at least five absolute percentage points in, 
but not less than 25 percent of, the antidumping duty rate calculated 
in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination; or (2) a 
difference between an antidumping duty rate of zero (or de minimis) and 
an antidumping duty rate of greater than de minimis or vice versa.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See 19 CFR 351.224(g).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As explained further in the Ministerial Error Memorandum issued 
concurrently with this Notice,\3\ we determine that the Preliminary 
Determination contained an error with respect to our preliminary 
critical circumstances calculation. Correction of this error results in 
a determination that Bluestar's imports were ``massive'' during the 
comparison period and changes the preliminary critical circumstances 
determination from a negative to an affirmative determination for 
Bluestar.\4\ The Department considers this ministerial error to be 
significant warranting an amendment to our preliminary critical 
circumstances determination with respect to Bluestar. The Department 
does not consider any of the other alleged ministerial errors to be 
significant within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(g).\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, from James C. Doyle, Director, Office V, 
through Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Operations, entitled, ``Antidumping Duty 
Investigation of 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane from the People's 
Republic of China: Allegation of a Significant Ministerial Error in 
the Preliminary Determination,'' dated concurrently with this notice 
for the analysis performed (``Ministerial Error Memorandum''). This 
memorandum is on file electronically via Enforcement and

Amended Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances

    The Department determines that there was a significant ministerial 
error in the critical circumstances calculation for Bluestar in the 
Preliminary Determination. Consequently, we are amending the critical 
circumstances preliminary determination with respect to Bluestar 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e). Specifically, we found an unintentional 
error in our calculation under the statutory criteria involving massive 
imports over a relatively short period.\6\ In our corrected calculation 
of Bluestar's massive import analysis, we found that imports based on 
Bluestar's reported shipments of merchandise under consideration 
increased during the comparison period by more than 15 percent over its 
respective imports in the base period.\7\ Therefore, we amend our 
preliminarily determination and find there also to be massive imports 
for Bluestar, pursuant to section 733(e)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the ``Act'') and 19 CFR 351.206(c)(2)(i). 
Accordingly, as both conditions under section 733(e)(1)(A)(ii) and 
733(e)(1)(B) of the Act have been satisfied, we find that critical 
circumstances exist with respect to Bluestar.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See section 733(e)(1)(B).
    \7\ See Ministerial Error Memorandum, Allegation 1 and 
Attachment.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suspension of Liquidation

    The collection of cash deposits and suspension of liquidation will 
be revised, in accordance with section 733(e)(2) of the Act because we 
have preliminarily found that critical circumstances exist with regard 
to imports exported by Bluestar. We will instruct U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (``CBP'') to suspend liquidation of all entries \8\ 
of tetrafluoroethane from the PRC, that are entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date which is 90 days before 
the date on which the suspension of liquidation was first ordered 
(i.e., May 29, 2014, the date of publication in the Federal Register of 
the notice of an affirmative preliminary determination that 
tetrafluoroethane is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United 
States at LTFV).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ In the Preliminary Determination, we found that critical 
circumstances exist with respect to all exporters except for 
Bluestar. See Preliminary Determination, 79 FR at 30818. We note 
that we inadvertently omitted language in the ``Suspension of 
Liquidation'' section indicating that we will instruct CBP to 
suspend liquidation on the applicable entries on or after the date 
which is 90 days before the date on which the suspension of 
liquidation was first ordered. The correct suspension of liquidation 
language for all entries is provided here.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will also instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the 
estimated preliminary antidumping duty rate reflected in the 
Preliminary Determination. This suspension of liquidation will remain 
in effect until further notice.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 733(f) of the Act, we will notify the 
International Trade Commission (``ITC'') of our determination. In 
addition, we are making available to the ITC all non-privileged and 
non-proprietary information relating to this investigation. We will 
allow the ITC access to all privileged and business proprietary 
information in our files, provided the ITC confirms that it will not 
disclose such information, either publicly or under an administrative 
protective order, without the written consent of the Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
