SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are all large residential washers 
and certain subassemblies thereof from Mexico. The products are 
currently classifiable under subheadings 8450.20.0040 and 8450.20.0080 
of the Harmonized Tariff System of the United States (HTSUS). Products

purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to this 
scope is dispositive.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ A full description of the scope of the order is contained in 
the memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement 
and Compliance, from Gary Taverman, Associate Deputy Assistant 
Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, 
``Large Residential Washers from Mexico: Decision Memorandum for the 
Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 
2012-2014'' (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently 
with and adopted by this notice. The HTSUS numbers are revised from 
the numbers previously stated in the scope. See Memorandum to the 
File entitled ``Changes to the HTS Numbers to the ACE Case Reference 
Files for the Antidumping Duty Orders,'' dated January 6, 2015.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 
Constructed export price is calculated in accordance with section 772 
of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 
of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 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).\2\ ACCESS is available

The Final Rule changing the references to the Regulations can be 
found at 79 FR 69046 (November 20, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on our analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
information and information provided by Samsung, we preliminarily 
determine that Samsung had no shipments of the subject merchandise, 
and, therefore, no reviewable transactions, during the POR. For a full 
discussion of this determination, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of Review

    As a result of this review, the Department preliminarily determines 
that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for 
Electrolux for the period August 3, 2012, through January 31, 2014:

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department intends to disclose to interested parties the 
calculations performed in connection with these preliminary results 
within five days after the date of publication of this notice.\3\ 
Interested parties may submit case briefs within 30 days of the date of 
publication of these preliminary results.\4\ Rebuttal briefs, which 
must be limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed no 
later than five days after the time limit for filing case briefs.\5\ 
Parties submitting arguments in this proceeding are requested to submit 
with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary 
of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.\6\

filing requirements).
    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), any interested party may request a 
hearing within 30 days of publication of this notice. To request a 
hearing, or to participate if one is requested, parties must submit a 
written request to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce. 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. If a 
hearing is requested, the Department will notify interested parties of 
the hearing schedule. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to 
those raised in the case and rebuttal briefs. All documents must be 
filed electronically using ACCESS.
    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, which will include the results of its analysis 
of issues raised in any such comments, within 120 days of publication 
of these preliminary results, unless the deadline is extended.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rate

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212. The Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 41 days after the date of publication of 
the final results of this review.
    Electrolux reported the names of the importers of record and the 
entered value for all of its sales to the United States during the POR. 
If Electrolux's weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis 
(i.e., 0.50 percent), 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).\8\ We will 
instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method in Antidumping Proceedings:

Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on

[[Page 12438]]

May 6, 2003.\9\ If applicable, this clarification will apply to entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Electrolux, for which 
it did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United 
States. Furthermore, this clarification applies to all POR entries 
entered under the case number for Samsung if we continue to make a 
final determination of no shipments of subject merchandise because it 
certified that it made no POR shipments of subject merchandise for 
which it had knowledge of U.S. destination. In such instances, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate these entries at the all-others rate 
established in the less-than fair-value (LTFV) investigation, 36.52 
percent,\10\ if there is no rate for the intermediary involved in the 
transaction. See Assessment Policy Notice for a full discussion of this 
clarification.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will remain effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication as provided in 
section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Electrolux 
will be that rate established in the final results of this review; (2) 
for previously investigated companies not covered in this review, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the rate published for the LTFV 
investigation; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
review, or the LTFV investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period 
for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise; (4) if neither the 
exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this review or the 
LTFV investigation, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the all-
others rate established in the LTFV investigation, which is 36.52 
percent.\11\ These cash 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) 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results of 
administrative review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: March 2, 2015.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
