SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On April 20, 2016, the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) initiated the countervailing duty investigation of 1-Hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-Diphosphonic Acid (‘‘HEDP’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).1 Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than June 24, 2016. srobinson on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Postponement of Due Date for the Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1) of the Act permits the Department to postpone making the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which it initiated the investigation if, among other reasons, the petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement, or the Department concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating and determines that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated. Currently, while the Department has not yet chosen mandatory respondents, we determine that, thus far, the parties concerned are cooperating because each has made an entry of appearance in this investigation.2 Also, the Department 1 See 1-Hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-Diphosphonic Acid from People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 81 FR 25383 (April 28, 2016) (‘‘Initiation’’).

For all these reasons, the Department finds this investigation to be extraordinarily complicated within the meaning of section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Act, and is hereby fully postponing the preliminary countervailing duty determination by 130 days.4 Therefore, pursuant to the discretion afforded to the Department under section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we are postponing the due date for the preliminary determination to no later than August 29, 2016.5 This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).

For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is made available to the public via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS).

A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an Appendix to this notice. Preliminary Results of Review As a result of this administrative review, we preliminarily determine that a weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for Tension Steel Industries Co., Ltd., for the period July 18, 2014, through August 31, 2015. srobinson on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Disclosure and Public Comment We intend to disclose the calculations 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). 1 See the memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from Taiwan’’ dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).

Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If Tension Steel’s weightedaverage dumping margin is above de minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate an importerspecific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If Tension Steel’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., ‘‘{w}here the weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter is determined 2 See 19 CFR 351.309(d). 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2). 4 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 3 See PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.’’.5 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Tension Steel for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of this review for all shipments of OCTG Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Tension Steel will be the rate established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 2.34 percent,6 the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice 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 5 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews). 6 See Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods From India, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, the Republic of Turkey, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Antidumping Duty Orders; and Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 79 FR 53691, 53693 (September 10, 2014).

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this administrative review in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act). Constructed export price is calculated in accordance with 
section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with 
section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology 
underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 
The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is made 
available to the public via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). 
ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov, and 
is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit, room B8024 of 
the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete 
version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be found at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. A list of the topics discussed in 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an Appendix to this 
notice.

Preliminary Results of Review

    As a result of this administrative review, we preliminarily 
determine that a weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists 
for Tension Steel Industries Co., Ltd., for the period July 18, 2014, 
through August 31, 2015.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    We intend to disclose the calculations 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 administrative review, the Department shall 
determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If Tension Steel's 
weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate an importer-specific 
assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
antidumping duties calculated for the importer's examined sales and the 
total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). If Tension Steel's weighted-average dumping margin is 
zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP 
not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final 
Modification for Reviews, i.e., ``{w{time} here the weighted-average 
margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de 
minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.''.\5\

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Tension Steel for which it did not know its merchandise was destined 
for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of this review for all 
shipments of OCTG Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 
751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Tension Steel will 
be the rate established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not 
covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 2.34 percent,\6\ the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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

[[Page 38137]]

of the relevant entries during this POR. 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)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: June 7, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
