SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: The Petition On March 3, 2016, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) received an antidumping duty (‘‘AD’’) petition concerning imports of 1,1,1,2Tetrafluoroethane (‘‘R–134a’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), filed in proper form on behalf of the American HFC Coalition and its individual members,1 as well as District Lodge 154 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (‘‘IAMAW’’) (collectively, ‘‘Petitioners’’).2 On March 8, 2016, the Department requested additional information and clarification of certain areas of the Petition.3 Petitioners submitted the requested information and clarification to the Department on March 11, 2016.4 In accordance with section 732(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the 1 The individual members of the American HFC Coalition are: Amtrol Inc., Arkema Inc., The Chemours Company FC LLC, Honeywell International Inc., Hudson Technologies, Mexichem Fluor Inc., and Worthington Industries, Inc. 2 See Petition for the Imposition of Antidumping Duties on Imports of 1, 1, 1, 2-Tetrafluoroethane (R– 134a) from the People’s Republic of China, dated March 3, 2016 (‘‘Petition’’). 3 See the Department’s letter to Petitioners, ‘‘Petition for the Imposition of Antidumping Duties on Imports of 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane (R–134a) from the People’s Republic of China: Supplemental Questions,’’ dated March 8, 2016 (‘‘Supplemental Questionnaire’’). 4 See Petitioners’ response, ‘‘Petitioners’ Response to the Department’s March 8, 2016 Supplemental Questionnaire,’’ dated March 11, 2016 (‘‘Petition Supplement’’).

Also, consistent with section 732(b)(1) of the Act, the Petition is accompanied by information reasonably available to Petitioners supporting their allegations. The Department finds that Petitioners filed the Petition on behalf of the domestic industry because Petitioners are interested parties as defined in sections 771(9)(C),(D), and (F) of the Act. The Department also finds that Petitioners demonstrated sufficient industry support with respect to the initiation of the AD investigation that Petitioners are requesting.5 Period of Investigation Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1), because the Petition was filed on March 3, 2016, the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is July 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015. Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is R–134a from the PRC. For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigation’’ in Appendix I of this notice. Comments on Scope of the Investigation During our review of the Petition, the Department issued questions to, and received responses from, Petitioners pertaining to the proposed scope to ensure that the scope language in the Petition would be an accurate reflection of the products for which the domestic industry is seeking relief.6 As discussed in the preamble to the Department’s regulations,7 we are setting aside a period for interested parties to raise issues regarding product coverage (scope). The Department will consider all comments received from parties and, if necessary, will consult with parties prior to the issuance of the preliminary determination. If scope comments include factual information (see 19 CFR 351.102(b)(21)), all such factual information should be limited to public information. In order to facilitate preparation of its questionnaires, the Department requests all interested parties to submit such comments by 5 See the ‘‘Determination of Industry Support for the Petition’’ section, below. 6 See Supplemental Questionnaire and Petition Supplement. 7 See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997).

notice of initiation. The Department's regulations on submission of 
proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business 
proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304-306.

we do not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one 
domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the Department will 
automatically revoke the order without further review.\6\

    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate 
from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in a Sunset Review must file 
complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation. The 
required contents of a substantive response, on an order-specific 
basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain 
information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties. 
Also, note that the Department's information requirements are distinct
