SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) preliminarily determines that certain amorphous silica fabric (silica fabric) from the People’s Republic of China (the PRC) is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less-than-fair value (LTFV). The period of investigation is July 1, 2015, through December 31, 2015. The estimated weighted-average dumping margins are shown in the ‘‘Preliminary Determination’’ section of this notice. We invite interested parties to comment on this preliminary determination. DATES: Effective September 1, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department published the notice of initiation of this LTFV investigation on February 23, 2016.1 For a complete description of the events that followed the initiation of this investigation, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum that is dated concurrently with this determination and is hereby adopted by this notice.2 A list of topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included as Appendix I 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 https://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 found at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and electronic version of Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is silica fabric from the PRC. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see Appendix II. Scope Comments In accordance with the preamble to the Department’s regulations,3 the Initiation Notice set aside a period of time for parties to raise issues regarding product coverage (i.e., ‘‘scope’’).4 We received comments from one interested party on March 13, 2016. However, since these comments were untimely filed, we rejected them from the record. 1 See Certain Amorphous Silica Fabric From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Less-ThanFair-Value Investigation, 81 FR 8913 (February 23, 2016) (Initiation Notice). 2 See 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 the Preliminary Determination in the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Amorphous Silica Fabric From the People’s Republic of China,’’ (Preliminary Decision Memorandum) dated concurrently with this notice. 3 See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997). 4 See Initiation Notice, 81 FR at 8913. PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60341 We received no other comments on scope since publication of the Initiation Notice, other than rebuttal comments filed by petitioner on March 17, 2016, with respect to the untimely filed March 7, 2016, comments. The Department is preliminarily not modifying the scope language as it appeared in the Initiation Notice. Methodology The Department conducted this investigation in accordance with section 731 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). We calculated constructed export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, we calculated normal value (NV) in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances On July 13, 2016, Petitioner filed a timely critical circumstances allegation, pursuant to section 733(e)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206, alleging that critical circumstances exist with respect to imports of silica fabric from the PRC.5 We preliminarily determine that critical circumstances exist for ACIT (Pinghu) Inc. (ACIT), Nanjing Tianyuan Fiberglass Material Co., Ltd. (Nanjing Tianyuan), and the PRC-wide entity. For a full description of the methodology and results of our analysis, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Combination Rates In the Initiation Notice, the Department stated that it would calculate combination rates for the respondents that are eligible for a separate rate in this investigation.6 Policy Bulletin 05.1 describes this practice.7 Preliminary Determination The preliminary weighted-average antidumping margins are as follows: 5 See Letter from Auburn Manufacturing, Inc. (Petitioner), dated July 13, 2016. 6 See Initiation Notice, 81 FR at 8917. 7 See Enforcement and Compliance’s Policy Bulletin No. 05.1, regarding, ‘‘Separate-Rates Practice and Application of Combination Rates in Antidumping Investigations involving Non-Market Economy Countries,’’ (April 5, 2005) (Policy Bulletin 05.1), available on the Department’s Web site at http://enforcement.trade.gov/policy/bull051.pdf.
