SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On June 8, 2016, the Department published its affirmative preliminary determination that CWP from Vietnam is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, as provided by section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).1 The Department disclosed the calculations performed on June 6, 2016. Therefore, the deadline for submitting ministerial error allegations under 19 CFR 351.224(c)(2) was June 13, 2016. The petitioners 2 timely filed comments alleging significant ministerial errors in the margin calculated for Vietnam Haiphong Hongyuan Machinery Manufactory Co., Ltd. (Hongyuan).3 In addition, SeAH Steel VINA Corporation (SeAH) timely filed comments alleging ministerial errors in its margin calculation.4 Scope of the Investigation For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see ‘‘Scope of Investigation’’ at Appendix II of the Preliminary Determination. Analysis of Significant Ministerial Error Allegations The Department will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination according to 19 CFR 351.224(e). A ministerial error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ‘‘an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.’’ Further, a significant ministerial error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(g) as a ministerial error, the correction of which, singly or in combination with other errors, would result in: (1) A change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the weightedaverage dumping margin calculated in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination; or (2) a difference between a weighted-average dumping margin of zero (or de minimis) and a weighted-average dumping margin of greater than de minimis, or vice versa. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g)(2), the Department is amending the Preliminary Determination to reflect the corrections of significant ministerial errors in Hongyuan’s margin calculation. However, as the ministerial errors alleged by SeAH are not significant in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(g), the Department has not analyzed SeAH’s comments, and is not amending SeAH’s margin calculation. As a result of amending Hongyuan’ margin, the Department is also revising the margin for the separate rate company.5 Ministerial Error Allegations For a complete analysis of the ministerial error allegations, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum.6 Amended Preliminary Determination We are correcting the preliminary dumping margin for Hongyuan. Consequently, we are also amending the preliminary separate rate for Hoa Phat Steel Pipe Co. (Hoa Phat). SeAH’s preliminary dumping margin is unchanged.

The NSR covers one exporter and producer of subject merchandise, Durum Gida Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (Durum). The period of review (POR) is July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. The Department preliminarily determines that Durum did not make a bona fide sale during the POR; therefore, we are preliminarily rescinding this NSR.

AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Background On September 2, 2015, the Department published a notice of initiation of a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on pasta from Turkey.1 The Department subsequently issued initial and supplemental questionnaires to Durum, and received timely responses thereto. The Department has exercised its discretion to toll all administrative 1 See Certain Pasta From Turkey: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 80 FR 53112 (September 2, 2015) (Initiation Notice).

The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review, after the four business-day extension, was February 29, 2016.2 However, on February 29, 2016, the Department extended the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this NSR by 106 days, until June 14, 2016.3 We extended it again by 14 days on June 8, 2016, until June 28, 2016.4 Scope of the Order Imports covered by this review are shipments of certain non-egg dry pasta in packages of five pounds (2.27 kilograms) or less, whether or not enriched or fortified or containing milk or other optional ingredients such as chopped vegetables, vegetable purees, milk, gluten, diastases, vitamins, coloring and flavorings, and up to two percent egg white.

The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Preliminary Rescission of the Antidumping New Shipper Review of Durum As discussed in the Bona Fide Sales Analysis Memorandum,6 the Department preliminarily finds that the sale made by Durum serving as the basis for this review is not a bona fide sale. The Department reached this conclusion based on the totality of the circumstances surrounding the reported sale, including the sales price, the number of sales that Durum reported, the importer’s inability to prove that it had received payment from its U.S. customers, and the fact that the record fails to establish that the U.S. importer realized a profit on its re-sale of the subject merchandise. Because the non-bona fide sale was the only reported sale of subject merchandise during the POR, we find there are no reviewable transactions during this new shipper period of review. Accordingly, we are preliminarily rescinding this NSR.7 Because the factual information used in our bona fides analysis of Durum’s sale involves business proprietary information, for a full discussion of the basis for our preliminary determination see the Bona Fide Sales Analysis Memorandum. Public Comment Interested parties may submit case briefs no later than 30 days after the date of publication of the preliminary results of review.8 Rebuttals to case 6 See Memorandum from Fred Baker, International Trade Analyst, Office VI AD/CVD Operations, to Scot Fullerton, Director, Office VI, AD/CVD Operations entitled ‘‘2014–2015 Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review of Certain Pasta From Turkey: Preliminary Bona Fide Sales Analysis for Durum Gida Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S.,’’ (Bona Fide Sales Analysis Memorandum) dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice. 7 See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). 8 See 19 CFR 351.309(c).

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) is amending the 
preliminary determination of the antidumping duty (AD) investigation of

Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam) to correct significant ministerial 
errors.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On June 8, 2016, the Department published its affirmative 
preliminary determination that CWP from Vietnam is being, or is likely 
to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, as provided 
by section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\1\ The 
Department disclosed the calculations performed on June 6, 2016. 
Therefore, the deadline for submitting ministerial error allegations 
under 19 CFR 351.224(c)(2) was June 13, 2016.

    The petitioners \2\ timely filed comments alleging significant 
ministerial errors in the margin calculated for Vietnam Haiphong

Scope of the Investigation

    For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see 
``Scope of Investigation'' at Appendix II of the Preliminary 
Determination.

Analysis of Significant Ministerial Error Allegations

    The Department will analyze any comments received and, if 
appropriate, correct any significant ministerial error by amending the 
preliminary determination according to 19 CFR 351.224(e). A ministerial 
error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ``an error in addition, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other 
similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.'' Further, a significant ministerial error is defined in 
19 CFR 351.224(g) as a ministerial error, the correction of which, 
singly or in combination with other errors, would result in: (1) A 
change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less 
than 25 percent of, the weighted-average dumping margin calculated in 
the original (erroneous) preliminary determination; or (2) a difference 
between a weighted-average dumping margin of zero (or de minimis) and a 
weighted-average dumping margin of greater than de minimis, or vice 
versa.
    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g)(2), the Department is 
amending the Preliminary Determination to reflect the corrections of 
significant ministerial errors in Hongyuan's margin calculation. 
However, as the ministerial errors alleged by SeAH are not significant 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(g), the Department has not analyzed 
SeAH's comments, and is not amending SeAH's margin calculation. As a 
result of amending Hongyuan' margin, the Department is also revising 
the margin for the separate rate company.\5\

is unchanged.

Amended Cash Deposits and Suspension of Liquidation

    The collection of cash deposits and suspension of liquidation will 
be revised according to the rates calculated in this amended 
preliminary determination. Because Hongyuan's and Hoa Phat's amended 
rates are now above de minimis, we will direct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of entries of CWP from Vietnam 
produced, as described in the scope of the section, which were produced 
and exported by these companies entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption. Because the correction of the errors for Hongyuan 
effectively results in increased cash deposit rates for Hongyuan and 
Hoa Phat, the revised rates calculated for Hongyuan and Hoa Phat will 
be effective on the date of publication of this notice in the Federal 
Register. Parties will be notified of this determination, in accordance 
with sections 733(d) and (f) of the Act.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 733(f) of the Act, we notified the 
International Trade Commission of our amended preliminary 
determination.

Notification to Interested Parties

    The Department intends to disclose calculations performed in 
connection with this amended preliminary determination within five days 
of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b).
