Extension of Deadlines for Preliminary Results On June 27, 2014, the Department extended the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 120 days, until November 20, 2014.3 On November 12, 2014, the Department aligned this new shipper review with the second administrative review of MLWF from the PRC.4 On November 20, 2014, the Department extended the preliminary results until December 31, 2014, to align with the second administrative review of this proceeding.5 Methodology The Department is conducting this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.214. The Department calculated export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a nonmarket economy country (‘‘NME’’) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, the Department calculated normal value in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with these results and hereby adopted by this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘ACCESS’’).6 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, as a result of the ITC’s determination that revocation of the AD order on EMD from Australia is not likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time, the Department is revoking the AD order on EMD from Australia.

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 351.214. The Department calculated 
export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the 
PRC is a nonmarket economy country (``NME'') within the meaning of 
section 771(18) of the Act, the Department calculated normal value in 
accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, dated 
concurrently with these results and hereby adopted by this notice. The 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file 
electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System 
(``ACCESS'').\6\ 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://enforcement.trade.gov/frn. The signed Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ 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 Department intends to issue the final results of this new 
shipper review, which will include the results of its analysis of 
issues raised in any such comments, within 90 days of publication of 
these preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the 
Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of this new shipper review, the 
Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of the final results of this new shipper 
review. If the individually examined respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific 
ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount 
of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total 
entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

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

[[Page 1393]]

    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this new shipper review when the 
importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of 
this review is above de minimis. Where either the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-
specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. 
The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME 
cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were 
not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by Anying for this 
new shipper review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such 
entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines 
that the 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.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final results of this new shipper 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 upon 
publication of the final results of this new shipper review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that rate established in the final results of this new shipper review 
(except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then a zero cash deposit 
will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and 
non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a 
prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue 
to be the existing producer/exporter-specific combination rate; (3) for 
all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the 
PRC-wide entity, or 58.84 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 producer/exporter 
combination 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 review period. 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214.

    Dated: December 30, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
