Magnesium is a metal or alloy containing by weight primarily the element magnesium. Primary magnesium is produced by decomposing raw materials into magnesium metal. Secondary magnesium is produced by recycling magnesium-based scrap into magnesium metal. The magnesium covered by this order includes blends of primary and secondary magnesium. The subject merchandise includes the following alloy magnesium metal products made from primary and/or secondary magnesium including, without limitation, magnesium cast into ingots, slabs, rounds, billets, and other shapes; magnesium ground, chipped, crushed, or machined into rasping, granules, turnings, chips, powder, VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:32 Nov 21, 2014 Jkt 235001 briquettes, and other shapes; and products that contain 50 percent or greater, but less than 99.8 percent, magnesium, by weight, and that have been entered into the United States as conforming to an ‘‘ASTM Specification for Magnesium Alloy’’ 1 and are thus outside the scope of the existing antidumping orders on magnesium from the PRC (generally referred to as ‘‘alloy’’ magnesium). The scope of this order excludes: (1) All forms of pure magnesium, including chemical combinations of magnesium and other material(s) in which the pure magnesium content is 50 percent or greater, but less than 99.8 percent, by weight, that do not conform to an ‘‘ASTM Specification for Magnesium Alloy’’; 2 (2) magnesium that is in liquid or molten form; and (3) mixtures containing 90 percent or less magnesium in granular or powder form by weight and one or more of certain non-magnesium granular materials to make magnesium-based reagent mixtures, including lime, calcium metal, calcium silicon, calcium carbide, calcium carbonate, carbon, slag coagulants, fluorspar, nephaline syenite, feldspar, alumina (Al203), calcium aluminate, soda ash, hydrocarbons, graphite, coke, silicon, rare earth metals/mischmetal, cryolite, silica/fly ash, magnesium oxide, periclase, ferroalloys, dolomite lime, and colemanite.3 The merchandise subject to this order is classifiable under items 8104.19.00, and 8104.30.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’).

Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2013-2014

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``Department'') is conducting the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on magnesium metal 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The period of review 
(``POR'') is April 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014. This review covers 
two PRC companies, Tianjin Magnesium International, Co., Ltd. (``TMI'') 
and Tianjin Magnesium Metal, Co., Ltd. (``TMM''). The Department 
preliminarily finds that TMI and TMM did not have reviewable entries 
during the POR. We invite interested parties to comment on these 
preliminary results.

DATES: Effective Date: November 24, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Terpstra or Erin Begnal, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office III, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue NW., Washington DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-3965 
or (202) 482-1442, respectively.

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by this antidumping duty order is magnesium 
metal from the PRC, which includes primary and secondary alloy 
magnesium metal, regardless of chemistry, raw material source, form, 
shape, or size. Magnesium is a metal or alloy containing by weight 
primarily the element magnesium. Primary magnesium is produced by 
decomposing raw materials into magnesium metal. Secondary magnesium is 
produced by recycling magnesium-based scrap into magnesium metal. The 
magnesium covered by this order includes blends of primary and 
secondary magnesium.
    The subject merchandise includes the following alloy magnesium 
metal products made from primary and/or secondary magnesium including, 
without limitation, magnesium cast into ingots, slabs, rounds, billets, 
and other shapes; magnesium ground, chipped, crushed, or machined into 
rasping, granules, turnings, chips, powder, briquettes, and other 
shapes; and products that contain 50 percent or greater, but less than 
99.8 percent, magnesium, by weight, and that have been entered into the 
United States as conforming to an ``ASTM Specification for Magnesium 
Alloy'' \1\ and are thus outside the scope of the existing antidumping 
orders on magnesium from the PRC (generally referred to as ``alloy'' 
magnesium).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The meaning of this term is the same as that used by the 
American Society for Testing and Materials in its Annual Book for 
ASTM Standards: Volume 01.02 Aluminum and Magnesium Alloys.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The scope of this order excludes: (1) All forms of pure magnesium, 
including chemical combinations of magnesium and other material(s) in 
which the pure magnesium content is 50 percent or greater, but less 
than 99.8 percent, by weight, that do not conform to an ``ASTM 
Specification for Magnesium Alloy''; \2\ (2) magnesium that is in 
liquid or molten form; and (3) mixtures containing 90 percent or less 
magnesium in granular or powder form by weight and one or more of 
certain non-magnesium granular materials to make magnesium-based 
reagent mixtures, including lime, calcium metal, calcium silicon, 
calcium carbide, calcium carbonate, carbon, slag coagulants, fluorspar, 
nephaline syenite, feldspar, alumina (Al203), calcium aluminate, soda 
ash, hydrocarbons, graphite, coke, silicon, rare earth metals/
mischmetal, cryolite, silica/fly ash, magnesium oxide, periclase, 
ferroalloys, dolomite lime, and colemanite.\3\ The merchandise subject 
to this order is classifiable under items 8104.19.00, and 8104.30.00 of 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). 
Although the HTSUS items are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive.

Value: Antidumping Duty Investigation of Pure Magnesium From the 
Russian Federation, 60 FR 25691 (May 12, 1995); and Antidumping Duty 
Order: Pure Magnesium in Granular Form From the People's Republic of 
China, 66 FR 57936 (November 19, 2001).
    \3\ This third exclusion for magnesium-based reagent mixtures is 
based on the exclusion for reagent mixtures in the 2000-2001 
investigations of magnesium from China, Israel, and Russia. See 
Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Pure Magnesium 
in Granular Form From the People's Republic of China, 66 FR 49345

Value: Pure Magnesium From Israel, 66 FR 49349 (September 27, 2001); 
Final Determination of Sales at Not Less Than Fair Value: Pure 
Magnesium From the Russian Federation, 66 FR 49347 (September 27, 
2001). These mixtures are not magnesium alloys, because they are not 
combined in liquid form and cast into the same ingot.

Background

    On April 1, 2014, the Department published a notice of opportunity 
to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
magnesium metal from the PRC for the period April 1, 2013 through March 
31, 2014.\4\ On April 30, 2014, U.S. Magnesium LLC (``U.S. 
Magnesium''), a domestic producer and Petitioner in the underlying 
investigation of this case, made a timely request that the Department 
conduct an administrative review of TMI and TMM.\5\ On May 29, 2014, in 
accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act''), the Department published in the Federal Register a 
notice of initiation of this antidumping duty administrative review.\6\ 
On June 25, 2014, TMI submitted a letter to the Department certifying 
that it did not export magnesium metal to the United States during the 
POR.\7\ On July 21, 2014, TMM submitted a letter to the Department 
certifying that it did not export magnesium metal to the United States 
during the POR.\8\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On August 19, 2014, we notified U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') that we were in receipt of no-shipment certifications from 
TMI and TMM and requested CBP to report any contrary information within 
10 days.\9\ CBP did not report any contrary information. On August 29, 
2014, the Department placed on the record information obtained in 
response to the Department's query to CBP concerning imports into the 
United States of subject merchandise during the POR.\10\ This 
information indicates that there were no entries of subject

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the ``Background'' section above, TMI and TMM submitted 
timely-filed certifications indicating that they had no shipments of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. In addition, 
CBP did not provide any evidence that contradicts TMI's and TMM's 
claims of no shipments. Further, on August 29, 2014, the Department 
released to interested parties the results of a CBP query to 
corroborate TMI and TMM's no shipment claims.\11\ The Department 
received no comments from interested parties concerning the results of 
the CBP query.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based on TMI's and TMM's certifications and our analysis of CBP 
information, we preliminarily determine that TMI and TMM did not have 
any reviewable entries during the POR. In addition, the Department 
finds that consistent with its recently announced refinement to its 
assessment practice in non-market economy (``NME'') cases, it is 
appropriate not to rescind the review in this circumstance but, rather, 
to complete the review with respect to TMI and TMM and issue 
appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review.\12\

751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review. The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final 
results of this review. Additionally, pursuant to a recently announced 
refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases, if the Department 
continues to determine 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. For a full discussion of this 
practice, see Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For TMI, which 
claimed no shipments, the cash deposit rate will remain unchanged from 
the rate assigned to TMI in the most recently completed review of the 
company; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 
exporters who are not under review in this segment of the proceeding 
but who have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) 
for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found 
to be entitled to a separate rate (including TMM, which claimed no 
shipments, but has not been found to be separate from the PRC-wide 
entity), the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 141.49 
percent; 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(s) that supplied that non-PRC 
exporter. These 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 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.
    This administrative review and notice are in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.
