SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on large residential washers from the Republic of Korea. The period of review (POR) is August 3, 2012, through January 31, 2014. The review covers three producers and exporters of the subject merchandise, Daewoo Electronics Corporation (Daewoo), LG Electronics, Inc. (LGE), and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (Samsung). We preliminarily determine that sales of subject merchandise have been made at prices below normal value. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

Manufacturer/exporter Daewoo Electronics Corporation LG Electronics, Inc ..................... Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd .... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 82.41 1.57 82.41 Disclosure and Public Comment We will disclose the calculations performed to parties in this segment of the proceeding within five days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Interested parties may submit case briefs not later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.3 Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed not later than five days after the date for filing case briefs.4 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2), parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to request a hearing, or to participate if one is requested, must submit a written request to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce. All documents must be filed electronically using ACCESS. An electronically filed request must be received successfully in its entirety by ACCESS by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.5 Requests should contain the party’s name, address, and telephone number, the number of participants, and a list of the issues to be discussed. If a request for a hearing is made, the Department intends to hold the hearing at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, at a time and date to be determined. Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date.

For those sales where LG reported the entered value of its U.S. sales, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the examined sales to that importer. For those sales where the respondent did not report the entered value of its U.S. sales, we calculated importer-specific or customer-specific per-unit duty assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity of those sales. To determine whether this duty assessment rate is de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will calculate an importer-specific ad valorem ratio based on the estimated entered value. 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 exporter’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or the importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.8 The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by LGE for 6 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h). 7 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). 8 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 2012); 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

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.

DATES: Effective Date: March 9, 2015. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) is rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers from Taiwan for the period of review (‘‘POR’’), December 1, 2013, through November 30, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 4, 2015, based on a timely request for review by Petitioners,1 the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers for 30 companies, covering the period December 1, 2013, through November 30, 2014.2 On February 19, 2015, Petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review of these companies.3 Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Petitioners withdrew their request within the 90day deadline. No other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. As a result, we are rescinding the administrative review of steel wire garment hangers from Taiwan for the POR. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Because the Department is rescinding this administrative review in its entirety, the entries to which this administrative review pertained shall be assessed antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice. 1 M&B Metal Products Company, Inc., Innovative Fabrication LLC/Indy Hanger and US Hanger Company, LLC (collectively ‘‘Petitioners’’). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 80 FR 6041 (February 4, 2015) (‘‘Initiation’’).

with section 773 of the Act. Because mandatory respondents Daewoo and 
Samsung failed to respond to the Department's questionnaire, we 
preliminarily find it appropriate to use adverse facts available (AFA) 
in determining their weighted-average dumping margins, in accordance 
with sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.308. For a full 
description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the

duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\7\ If we 
continue to rely on adverse facts available to establish Daewoo's and 
Samsung's weighted-average dumping margins, we will instruct CBP to 
apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 82.41 percent to all entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported 
by Daewoo and Samsung.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For those sales where LG reported the entered value of its U.S. 
sales, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates 
based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated 
for the examined sales to the total entered value of the examined sales 
to that importer. For those sales where the respondent did not report 
the entered value of its U.S. sales, we calculated importer-specific or 
customer-specific per-unit duty assessment rates by aggregating the 
total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales 
and dividing this amount by the total quantity of those sales. To 
determine whether this duty assessment rate is de minimis, in 
accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we 
will calculate an importer-specific ad valorem ratio based on the 
estimated entered value.
    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 exporter's weighted-average dumping margin 
is zero or de minimis, or the importer-specific assessment rate is zero 
or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.\8\

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by LGE for

[[Page 12458]]

which the reviewed company did not know its merchandise was destined 
for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate 
for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a 
full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 
FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
publication date of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective 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 this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Daewoo, LG, and 
Samsung will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de 
minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the 
cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or 
investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published 
for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 11.80 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
less-than-fair-value investigation.\9\ These 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results 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.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
