SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) preliminarily determines that countervailable subsidies are being provided to producers and exporters of certain iron mechanical transfer drive components (‘‘ITDCs’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The period of investigation is January 1, 2014, through December 31, 2014. We invite interested parties to comment on this preliminary determination. DATES: Effective Date: April 11, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope Comments In accordance with the preamble to the Department’s regulations,1 we set aside a period of time in our Initiation Notice for parties to raise issues regarding product coverage, and we encouraged all parties to submit 1 See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997) (‘‘Preamble’’). PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 comments within 20 calendar days of the signature date of that notice.2 We received several comments concerning the scope of the antidumping duty (‘‘AD’’) and CVD investigations of ITDCs from the PRC and Canada. On March 30, 2016, Petitioner filed an amendment to the scope to exclude certain finished torsional vibration dampeners (‘‘TVDs’’), as defined in the amended scope.3 Petitioner also noted that it is considering a potential additional exclusion to the scope to cover certain parts of TVDs.4 Also, on March 30, 2016, NOK Wuxi notified the Department of its intent to withdraw from participation in this investigation, contingent on the Department’s acceptance and inclusion of Petitioner’s amendment to the scope.5 Because Petitioner’s proposed scope amendment was filed two days before the due date for the preliminary determination, the Department does not have sufficient time before the fully extended scheduled signature due date of the CVD preliminary determination to consider this proposed amendment to the scope. However, the Department will evaluate the scope comments and intends to issue its preliminary decision regarding the scope of the AD and CVD investigations in the preliminary determination of the companion antidumping investigations, which are due for signature on May 31, 2016. Scope of the Investigation The products covered by this investigation are ITDCs from the PRC. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see Appendix II to this notice. Methodology The Department is conducting this countervailing duty (‘‘CVD’’) investigation in accordance with section 701 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we preliminarily determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution by an ‘‘authority’’ that gives rise to a benefit to the 2 See Certain Iron Mechanical Transfer Drive Components From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 80 FR 73722 (November 25, 2015). 3 See Submission of Petitioner, ‘‘Certain Iron Mechanical Transfer Drive Components from Canada and the People’s Republic of China: Petitioner’s Amendment to the Scope,’’ dated March 30, 2016. 4 Id. 5 See Submission of NOK Wuxi, ‘‘Certain Iron Mechanical Transfer Drive Components from the People’s Republic of China: Withdrawal from Investigation,’’ dated March 30, 2016.
