SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) is conducting the fifth administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).1 The Department selected two respondents for individual review, Shanghai Wells,2 AGENCY: 1 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 58111 (October 6, 2008) (‘‘Order’’). 2 The Department previously found that Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd., Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (‘‘HK Wells’’) and Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (USA) (‘‘Wells USA’’) are affiliated and that Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd. and HK Wells comprise a single entity (collectively, ‘‘Shanghai Wells’’). Because there were no changes in this review to the facts that supported that decision, we continue to find Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd., HK Wells, and USA Wells are affiliated and that Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd. and HK Wells comprise a single entity. See Steel Wire Garment Hangers From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Rescission, in Part, of the First Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 68758, 68761 (November 9, 2010), unchanged in First Administrative Review of Steel Wire Garment PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and Ningbo Dasheng Hanger Ind. Co., Ltd., (‘‘Ningbo Dasheng’’). We selected four additional companies as mandatory respondents, but, they did not participate.3 The Department preliminarily determines that Shanghai Wells sold subject merchandise in the United States at prices below normal value during the period of review (‘‘POR’’), October 1, 2012, through September 30, 2013. In addition, we preliminary determine Ningbo Dasheng, and the Non-Responsive Mandatories failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of their ability to comply with the Department’s request for information, warranting the application of facts otherwise available with adverse inferences, pursuant to sections 776(a)– (b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’). As a part of the application of adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’), we are treating Ningbo Dasheng as part of the PRC-wide entity. Additionally, we determine that the four other companies that we selected as mandatory respondents but which did not cooperate are also part of the PRC-wide entity.4 If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: November 5, 2014.
