Where either the respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.23 On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME antidumping duty cases.24 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, pursuant to this refinement, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number will be liquidated at the PRCwide rate. In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, 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 Department will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the weighted-average amount by which the 21 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 22 Id. 23 See Final Modification at 8103.

The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then the cash deposit rate will be zero for that exporter); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the PRC-wide entity and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter 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 POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``Department'') is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on non-malleable 
cast iron pipe fittings (``NMPF'') from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC'') for the period of review (``POR'') April 1, 2013, through 
March 31, 2014. This review covers one PRC company, Overseas Industrial 
Corporation (``OIC'').\1\ The Department preliminarily finds that OIC 
is part of the PRC-wide entity. Interested parties are invited to 
comment on these preliminary results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are finished and unfinished non-
malleable cast iron pipe fittings with an inside diameter ranging from 
1/4 inch to 6 inches, whether threaded or unthreaded, regardless of 
industry or proprietary specifications. For a full description of the 
scope of the order, see Preliminary Results Decision

Memorandum from Gary Taverman, Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations to Paul Piquado, 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, dated concurrently 
with these results and hereby adopted by this notice (``Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum'').

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). For a 
full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The list of topics discussed in the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum is provided as an Appendix to the 
notice. This memorandum is a public document and is on file 
electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System 
(``ACCESS'').\2\ ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.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 on the 
Internet at http://www.trade.gov/enforcement/. The signed Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ On November 24, 2014, Enforcement and Compliance changed the 
name of Enforcement and Compliance's AD and CVD Centralized 
Electronic Service System (``IA ACCESS'') to AD and CVD Centralized 
Electronic Service System (``ACCESS''). The Web site location was 
changed from http://iaaccess.trade.gov to http://access.trade.gov. 
The Final Rule changing the references to the Regulations can be 
found at 79 FR 69046 (November 20, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of Review

    Because OIC has not demonstrated its eligibility for a separate 
rate, we preliminarily find it to be part of the PRC-wide entity \3\ 
and subject for the rate previously established for the PRC-wide 
entity, i.e., 75.50 percent.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Pursuant to the 
Department's change in practice, the Department no longer considers 
the non-market economy entity as an exporter conditionally subject 
to administrative reviews. See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement 
of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in 
Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket 
Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963, 
65970 (November 4, 2013). Under this practice, the non-market 
economy entity will not be under review unless a party specifically 
requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of the entity. 
Because no party requested a review of the entity, the entity is not 
under review and the entity's rate is not subject to change.
    \4\ See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Non-Malleable Cast 
Iron Pipe Filings (Sic.) From the People's Republic of China, 68 FR

Disclosure and Public Comment

    Interested parties are invited to comment on the preliminary 
results and may submit case briefs and/or written comments, filed 
electronically using ACCESS, within 30 days of the date of publication 
of this notice, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c)(ii). Rebuttal briefs, 
limited to issues raised in the case briefs, will be due five days 
after the due date for case briefs, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(d). 
Parties who submit case or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are 
requested to submit with each argument a statement of the issue, a 
summary of the argument not to exceed five pages, and a table of 
statutes, regulations, and cases cited, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.309(c)(2).
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties, who wish to 
request a hearing, or to participate in a hearing if one is requested, 
must submit a written request to the Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce, filed 
electronically using ACCESS. Electronically filed case briefs/written 
comments and hearing requests must be received successfully in their 
entirety by the Department's electronic records system, ACCESS, by 5:00 
p.m. Eastern Standard Time, within 30 days after the date of 
publication of this notice.\5\ Hearing requests should contain: (1) The 
party's name, address and telephone number; (2) the number of 
participants; and (3) a list of issues to be discussed. Issues raised 
in the hearing will be limited to those issues raised in the respective 
case briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be 
notified of the time and date of the hearing which will be held at the 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington 
DC 20230. The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the 
issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the 
date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\6\ The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this 
review. The Department intends to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of 
subject merchandise from Overseas Industrial Corporation at 75.50 
percent (the rate previously determined for the PRC-wide entity).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in 
NME antidumping duty cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, 
for merchandise that was not reported in the U.S. sales databases 
submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, but 
that entered under the case number of that exporter (i.e., at the 
individually-examined exporter's cash deposit rate), the Department 
will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. 
Additionally, pursuant to this refinement, if the Department determines 
that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject 
merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter's 
case number will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), for a full 
discussion of this practice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 of the 
final results of review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 
exporters which are not under review in this segment of the proceeding 
but which have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to 
be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (2) 
for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found 
to be entitled to a separate rate, including Overseas Industrial 
Corporation, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 75.50 
percent; and (3) 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.

[[Page 1027]]

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 review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent
