SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    As explained in the memorandum from the Acting Assistant Secretary 
for Enforcement and Compliance, the Department exercised its discretion 
to toll all administrative deadlines due to a closure of the Federal 
Government. As a result, the revised deadline for the preliminary 
results of this review was March 7, 2016.\4\ On March 2, 2016, the 
Department extended the deadline for the preliminary results to July 5, 
2016.\5\

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement & Compliance, regarding

Closure During Snowstorm `Jonas,''' dated January 27, 2016. If the 
new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with the 
Department's practice, the deadline will become the next business 
day.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order is certain

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

Methodology

    In accordance with sections 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act), we relied on facts available with an 
adverse inference with respect to NSSMC, the sole company selected for 
individual examination in this review, and we preliminarily assign to 
it a dumping margin of 107.80 percent. In making these findings, we 
relied on facts available because NSSMC failed to respond to the 
Department's antidumping duty questionnaire, and thus withheld 
requested information, failed to provide requested information by the 
established deadlines, and significantly impeded this proceeding. See 
sections 776(a)(1) and (2)(A)-(C) of the Act. Furthermore, because we 
preliminarily determine that NSSMC failed to cooperate by not acting to 
the best of its ability to comply with the Department's requests for 
information, we drew an adverse inference in selecting from among the 
facts otherwise available. See section 776(b) of the Act.
    Additionally, as indicated in the ``Preliminary Results of Review'' 
section below, we preliminarily determine that a margin of 107.8 
percent applies to the three firms not selected for individual review. 
For further information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 
``Rate for Non-Examined Companies.''
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. A list of topics 
included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included in the 
Appendix attached to this notice.
    The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on 
file electronically 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 
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 accessed directly on the 
Internet 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 Determination of No Shipments

    Based on our analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
information and information provided by NKK, we preliminarily determine 
that NKK had no shipments of the subject merchandise, and, therefore, 
no reviewable transactions, during the POR. For a full discussion of 
this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Consistent 
with our practice, we are not preliminarily

the review with respect to this company and issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.\7\

Notifications 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 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
