SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) is conducting the sixth administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails (‘‘nails’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The Department preliminarily determines that Stanley Works (Langfang) Fastening Systems Co., Ltd. and Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (collectively ‘‘Stanley’’) sold subject merchandise in the United States at prices below normal value (‘‘NV’’) during the period of review (‘‘POR’’), August 1, 2014, through July 31, 2015. The Department also preliminarily determines that Tianjin Lianda Group Co., Ltd. (‘‘Tianjin Lianda’’) failed to demonstrate that it is entitled to a separate rate and has been treated as part of the PRC-wide entity. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective September 12, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On October 6, 2015, the Department initiated the seventh administrative review of the antidumping duty order on nails from the PRC for the period VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:40 Sep 09, 2016 Jkt 238001 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails subject to the order are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65, 7317.00.75, and 7907.00.6000.4 While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.5 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Based on the no-shipments letters filed by 11 companies subject to this review, the Department preliminarily determines that these companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. For additional information regarding this determination, including 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 79 FR 58729 (September 30, 2014) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). 2 See Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, through James C.

PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 a list of these companies, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Consistent with our assessment practice in non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) cases, the Department is not rescinding this review for these companies, but intends to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.6 Separate Rates The Department preliminarily determines that information placed on the record by the mandatory respondent Stanley, as well as by the 21 other separate rate applicants,7 demonstrates that these companies are entitled to separate rate status. For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. PRC-Wide Entity The Department’s policy regarding conditional review of the PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.8 Under this policy, the PRCwide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate is not subject to change (i.e., 118.04 percent).9 Aside from the no shipments and separate rate companies discussed above, the Department considers all other companies for which a review was requested,10 as well as Tianjin Lianda, to be part of the PRC-wide entity. For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum; see also Appendix 2 for a list of companies considered as part of the PRC-wide entity. 6 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694–95 (October 24, 2011) and the ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section, below. 7 We note that Mingguang Ruifeng Hardware Products Co., Ltd. and Mingguang Abundant Hardware Products Co., Ltd. are one company. 8 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013). 9 See, e.g., id.; Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012– 2013, 80 FR 18816, 18817 and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (‘‘AR5 Final Results’’). 10 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 79 FR 51548, 51549 (August 29, 2014) (‘‘All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate rate status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must complete, as appropriate, either a separate rate application or certification . . .’’).
