SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene retail carrier bags (PRCBs) from Thailand. The period of review (POR) is August 1, 2014, through July 31, 2015. We preliminarily find that subject merchandise has been sold at less than normal value by K. International Packaging Co., Ltd. (K. International Packaging).1 DATES: Effective Date: April 12, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to this order is polyethylene retail carrier bags, which are currently classified under subheading 3923.21.0085 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description is dispositive. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.2 Tolling of Deadline of Preliminary Results of Review As explained in the memorandum from the Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll all administrative deadlines due to the recent closure of the Federal Government. All deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by four business days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now May 6, 2016.3 Methodology We have relied on total facts available with respect to K. International Packaging, the sole company subject to this review. Because this company did not act to the best of its ability to respond to the Department’s requests for information, we have drawn an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.4 We have preliminarily determined to apply a 122.88 percent rate as adverse facts available for K. International Packaging.5 Preliminary Results of Review As a result of our review, we preliminarily determine that a weighted-average dumping margin of 2 See the Memorandum from Deputy Assistant Secretary Christian Marsh to Acting Assistant Secretary Ronald K.

For the final results, if we continue to rely on total adverse facts available to establish K. International Packaging’s weighted-average dumping margin, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 122.88 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported by K. International Packaging. We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 6 See 19 CFR 351.309(d). 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2). 8 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 7 See E:\FR\FM\12APN1.SGM 12APN1
