SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) is conducting an administrative review of the AGENCY: antidumping duty order on frontseating service valves from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is April 1, 2013, through April 28, 2014. The review covers one exporter of the subject merchandise, Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd. (‘‘Sanhua’’). The Department preliminarily finds that Sanhua made no sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: April 8, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laurel LaCivita, Enforcement and Compliance, Office III, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4243. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order is frontseating service valves, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain parts thereof of any size, configuration, material composition or connection type.1 Frontseating service valves are classified under subheading 8481.80.1095, and also have been classified under subheading 8415.90.80.85, of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). It is possible for frontseating service valves to be manufactured out of primary materials other than copper and brass, in which case they would be classified under HTSUS subheadings 8481.80.3040, 8481.80.3090, or 8481.80.5090. In addition, if unassembled or incomplete frontseating service valves are imported, the various parts or components would be classified under HTSUS subheadings 8481.90.1000, 8481.90.3000, or 8481.90.5000. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, but the written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive. Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Constructed export prices are calculated in accordance with section 772(b) of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our preliminary results, 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 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, 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 (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.9 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. Cash Deposit Requirements Because the antidumping duty order on frontseating service valves from the PRC was revoked,10 the Department will not issue cash deposit instructions at the conclusion of this administrative review. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order is frontseating service 
valves, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain 
parts thereof of any size, configuration, material composition or 
connection type.\1\ Frontseating service valves are classified under 
subheading 8481.80.1095, and also have been classified under subheading 
8415.90.80.85, of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(``HTSUS''). It is possible for frontseating service valves to be 
manufactured out of primary materials other than copper and brass, in 
which case they would be classified under HTSUS subheadings 
8481.80.3040, 8481.80.3090, or 8481.80.5090. In addition, if 
unassembled or incomplete frontseating service valves are imported, the 
various parts or components would be classified under HTSUS subheadings 
8481.90.1000, 8481.90.3000, or 8481.90.5000. The HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, but the written 
description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive.

Valves from the People's Republic of China,'' dated concurrently 
with this notice and herein incorporated by reference (``Preliminary

the Order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). 
Constructed export prices are calculated in accordance with section 
772(b) of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (``NME'') 
within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value is 
calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
preliminary results, 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 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 version of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the topics 
discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, is attached as the 
Appendix to this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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 reference to the Regulations can be 
found at 79 FR 69046 (November 20, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department preliminarily determines that the following 
weighted-average dumping margin exists for the POR April 1, 2013, 
through April 28, 2014:

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department intends to disclose to the parties the calculations 
performed for these preliminary results within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
    Interested parties may submit written comments no later than 30

five days after the written comments are filed.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c).
    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of 
publication of this notice.\5\ Hearing requests should contain the 
following information: (1) The party's name, address, and telephone 
number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of the issues to

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

    \5\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Unless otherwise extended, 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, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results of this review, the Department 
will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review.\7\ The Department intends 
to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For any individually examined respondent whose 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).\8\ For duty assessment rates calculated on this basis, 
we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the 
entered customs values for the subject merchandise.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 companies 
individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, 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 (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be 
liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Because the antidumping duty order on frontseating service valves 
from the PRC was revoked,\10\ the Department will not issue cash 
deposit instructions at the conclusion of this administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Frontseating Service Valves from the People's Republic 
of China: Final Results of Sunset Review and Revocation of 
Antidumping Duty Order, 79 FR 27573 (May 14, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 notice of these results in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
