The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Preliminary Rescission of Huameng NSR For the reasons detailed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, the Department preliminarily finds that Huameng’s sale under review is not bona fide, and therefore, does not provide a reasonable or reliable basis for calculating a dumping margin. The Department reached this conclusion based on the totality of the circumstances, including: (a) The atypical nature of product that was the subject of the sale, i.e. single-clove garlic; (b) the lack of proof of payment by Huameng’s U.S. customer for payment of all its obligatory expenses per the sales contract and for its subsequent purchase of non-subject merchandise; and, (3) other circumstances indicating that Huameng’s business operations were not profitable. As result, the Department is preliminarily rescinding the new shipper review of Huameng. Disclosure and Public Comment The Department will disclose the analysis performed for these preliminary results to the parties within five days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates Upon completion of the final results, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will determine, and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If we proceed to a final rescission of the new shipper review, Huameng’s entries will be assessed at the rate entered.9 If we do not proceed to a final rescission of the new shipper review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we will calculate importer-specific assessment rates. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis.10 Although the Department intends to rescind the new shipper review for Huameng, the Department is currently conducting an administrative review for the POR November 1, 2014, through October 31, 2015, which could include the entries subject to this new shipper review. Accordingly, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend entries during the period November 1, 2014, through October 31, 2015, of subject merchandise exported by Huameng until CBP receives instructions relating to the administrative review covering the period November 1, 2014, through October 31, 2015. 6 See 19 CFR 351.309(d). 19 CFR 351.310(c). 8 See 19 CFR 351.310(d). 9 See 19 CFR 351.212(c). 10 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 7 See E:\FR\FM\25MYN1.SGM 25MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 101 / Wednesday, May 25, 2016 / Notices Cash Deposit Requirements Effective upon publication of the final rescission or the final results of this NSR, we will instruct CBP to discontinue the option of posting a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for entries of subject merchandise by Huameng. If the Department proceeds to a final rescission of the new shipper review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the PRC-wide rate. If we issue final results of the new shipper review for Huameng, we will instruct CBP to collect cash deposits, effective upon the publication of the final results, at the rates established therein. 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. The Department is issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(b)(4). Dated: May 17, 2016.

Preliminary Rescission of Huameng NSR

    For the reasons detailed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, 
the Department preliminarily finds that Huameng's sale under review is 
not bona fide, and therefore, does not provide a reasonable or reliable 
basis for calculating a dumping margin. The Department reached this 
conclusion based on the totality of the circumstances, including: (a) 
The atypical nature of product that was the subject of the sale, i.e. 
single-clove garlic; (b) the lack of proof of payment by Huameng's U.S. 
customer for payment of all its obligatory expenses per the sales 
contract and for its subsequent purchase of non-subject merchandise; 
and, (3) other circumstances indicating that Huameng's business 
operations were not profitable. As result, the Department is 
preliminarily rescinding the new shipper review of Huameng.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department will disclose the analysis performed for these 
preliminary results to the parties within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

be discussed. Oral presentations will be limited to issues raised in

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

    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
    \8\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this new 
shipper review, which will include the results of its analysis of 
issues raised in any such comments, within 90 days of publication of 
these preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the 
Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the final results, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.212(b), the Department will determine, and the U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries. If we proceed to a final rescission of the new 
shipper review, Huameng's entries will be assessed at the rate 
entered.\9\ If we do not proceed to a final rescission of the new 
shipper review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we will calculate 
importer-specific assessment rates. We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if 
any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results 
of this review is above de minimis.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See 19 CFR 351.212(c).
    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Although the Department intends to rescind the new shipper review 
for Huameng, the Department is currently conducting an administrative 
review for the POR November 1, 2014, through October 31, 2015, which 
could include the entries subject to this new shipper review. 
Accordingly, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend entries during 
the period November 1, 2014, through October 31, 2015, of subject 
merchandise exported by Huameng until CBP receives instructions 
relating to the administrative review covering the period November 1,

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Effective upon publication of the final rescission or the final 
results of this NSR, we will instruct CBP to discontinue the option of 
posting a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for entries of 
subject merchandise by Huameng. If the Department proceeds to a final 
rescission of the new shipper review, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the PRC-wide rate. If we issue final results of the new 
shipper review for Huameng, we will instruct CBP to collect cash 
deposits, effective upon the publication of the final results, at the 
rates established therein.

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.
    The Department is issuing and publishing these results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.214 and 351.221(b)(4).

     Dated: May 17, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
