DATES: Effective Date: July 25, 2014. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) preliminarily determines that calcium hypochlorite from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value (‘‘LTFV’’), as provided in section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is April 1, 2013, through September 30, 2013. The estimated margin of sales at LTFV is shown in the ‘‘Preliminary Determination’’ section of this notice. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2), the final determination will be issued 135 days after the date of publication of this preliminary determination in the Federal Register. Interested parties are invited to comment on this preliminary determination. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kabir Archuletta, 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) 482–2593. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is calcium hypochlorite, regardless of form (e.g., powder, tablet (compressed), crystalline (granular), or in liquid solution), whether or not blended with other materials, containing at least 10% available chlorine measured by actual weight. The scope also includes bleaching PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43393 powder and hemibasic calcium hypochlorite. Calcium hypochlorite has the general chemical formulation Ca(OCl)2, but may also be sold in a more dilute form as bleaching powder with the chemical formulation, Ca(OCl)2.CaCl2.Ca(OH)2.2H2O or hemibasic calcium hypochlorite with the chemical formula of 2Ca(OCl)2.Ca(OH)2 or Ca(OCl)2.0.5Ca(OH)2. Calcium hypochlorite has a Chemical Abstract Service (‘‘CAS’’) registry number of 7778–54–3, and a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (‘‘EPA’’) Pesticide Code (‘‘PC’’) Number of 014701. The subject calcium hypochlorite has an International Maritime Dangerous Goods (‘‘IMDG’’) code of Class 5.1 UN 1748, 2880, or 2208 or Class 5.1/8 UN 3485, 3486, or 3487. Calcium hypochlorite is currently classifiable under the subheading 2828.10.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). The subheading covers commercial calcium hypochlorite and other calcium hypochlorite. When tableted or blended with other materials, calcium hypochlorite may be entered under other tariff classifications, such as 3808.94.5000 and 3808.99.9500, which cover disinfectants and similar products. While the HTSUS subheadings, the CAS registry number, the U.S. EPA PC number, and the IMDG codes are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive. Methodology The Department conducted this investigation in accordance with section 731 of the Act. Because all mandatory respondents in this investigation either withdrew from the proceeding or did not cooperate to the best of their ability with the Department’s requests for information, the Department preliminarily determines that the application of adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) is warranted for this preliminary determination, in accordance with section 776 of the Act and 19 CFR 351.308. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum hereby adopted by this notice.1 The Preliminary 1 See Memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Determination of the Antidumping Duty E:\FR\FM\25JYN1.SGM Continued 25JYN1 43394 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 143 / Friday, July 25, 2014 / Notices preliminary determination within five days of the date of publication of the notice of preliminary determination in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

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-
2593.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Investigation

    The product covered by this investigation is calcium hypochlorite, 
regardless of form (e.g., powder, tablet (compressed), crystalline 
(granular), or in liquid solution), whether or not blended with other 
materials, containing at least 10% available chlorine measured by 
actual weight. The scope also includes bleaching powder and hemibasic 
calcium hypochlorite.
    Calcium hypochlorite has the general chemical formulation 
Ca(OCl)2, but may also be sold in a more dilute form as 
bleaching powder with the chemical formulation, 
Ca(OCl)2.CaCl2.Ca(OH)2.2H2O 
or hemibasic calcium hypochlorite with the chemical formula of 
2Ca(OCl)2.Ca(OH)2 or 
Ca(OCl)2.0.5Ca(OH)2. Calcium hypochlorite has a 
Chemical Abstract Service (``CAS'') registry number of 7778-54-3, and a 
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA'') Pesticide Code (``PC'') 
Number of 014701. The subject calcium hypochlorite has an International 
Maritime Dangerous Goods (``IMDG'') code of Class 5.1 UN 1748, 2880, or 
2208 or Class 5.1/8 UN 3485, 3486, or 3487.
    Calcium hypochlorite is currently classifiable under the subheading 
2828.10.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(``HTSUS''). The subheading covers commercial calcium hypochlorite and 
other calcium hypochlorite. When tableted or blended with other 
materials, calcium hypochlorite may be entered under other tariff 
classifications, such as 3808.94.5000 and 3808.99.9500, which cover 
disinfectants and similar products. While the HTSUS subheadings, the 
CAS registry number, the U.S. EPA PC number, and the IMDG codes are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description 
of the scope of this investigation is dispositive.

Methodology

    The Department conducted this investigation in accordance with 
section 731 of the Act. Because all mandatory respondents in this 
investigation either withdrew from the proceeding or did not cooperate 
to the best of their ability with the Department's requests for 
information, the Department preliminarily determines that the 
application of adverse facts available (``AFA'') is warranted for this 
preliminary determination, in accordance with section 776 of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.308.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum hereby adopted by 
this notice.\1\ The Preliminary

    In accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, the Department will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to suspend 
liquidation of all entries of calcium hypochlorite from the PRC, as 
described in the ``Scope of the Investigation'' section, entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Furthermore, 
consistent with our practice, where the product under investigation is 
also subject to a concurrent countervailing duty investigation, we 
instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the amount by which the 
normal value exceeds the export price or constructed export price, less 
the amount of the countervailing duty determined to constitute an 
export subsidy. In this LTFV investigation, with regard to PRC-wide 
entity, export subsidies constitute 9.62 percent \9\ of the 
preliminarily calculated countervailing duty rate in the concurrent 
countervailing duty investigation, and, thus, we will offset the PRC-
wide rate of 210.52 percent by the countervailing duty rate 
attributable to export subsidies (i.e., 9.62 percent) to calculate the 
cash deposit rate for this LTFV investigation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ The following subsidy programs in the preliminary 
determination of the concurrent countervailing duty investigation 
are export subsidies: Discounted Loans for Export-Oriented 
Enterprises (1.06%), Export Credits from China's Export-Import Bank 
(1.06%), Export Credit Insurance from China Export and Credit 
Insurance Corporation (Sinosure) (1.06%), Foreign Trade Development 
Fund (0.55%), Famous Brands Program (0.55%), Provision of Shipping 
for LTAR (5.34%). See Calcium Hypochlorite From the People's 
Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty 
Determination, and Alignment of Final Countervailing Duty 
Determination With Final Antidumping Duty Determination, 79 FR 30082 
(May 27, 2014), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 
11.

Postponement of Final Determination and Extension of Provisional 
Measures

    Pursuant to a request from Wuhan Rui Sunny Chemical Co., Ltd., we 
are postponing the final determination and extending the provisional 
measures from a four-month period to no more than six months.\10\ 
Accordingly, we will make our final determination no later than 135 
days after the date of publication of this preliminary determination, 
pursuant to section 735(a)(2) of the Act.\11\

International Trade Commission (``ITC'') Notification

    In accordance with section 733(f) of the Act, we notified the ITC 
of our preliminary affirmative determination of sales at LTFV. Section 
735(b)(2) of the Act requires the ITC to make its final determination 
as to whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially 
injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of 
calcium hypochlorite, or sales (or the likelihood of sales) for 
importation, of the merchandise under consideration within 45 days of 
our final determination.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections
