SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On September 2, 2015, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping order on November 9, 2015.1 On February 3, 2016, we subsequently rescinded the review, in part, with respect to two companies, SAB and Super Impex.2 As explained in the memorandum from the Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement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 June 7, 2016.3 On May 3, 2016, the Department extended the deadline for the preliminary results to October 5, 2016. On September 7, 2016, Petitioner submitted new factual information regarding Navneet’s U.S. sales data.4 Given the timing of the submission, the Department could not address this new factual information in these preliminary results.

Based on Lodha Offset’s claim of no shipments and because no information to the contrary was received by the Department from CBP, we preliminarily determine that Lodha Offset 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. Methodology The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, the Department calculated a de minimis dumping margin for Kokuyo Riddhi and a weighted-average dumping margin 2.54 percent for Navneet for the period September 1, 2014, through August 31, 2015. Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the Department assigned the weightedaverage dumping margin of 2.54 percent calculated for Navneet to the five nonselected companies in these preliminary results, as referenced below.

Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review where applicable.

November 9, 2015.\1\ On February 3, 2016, we subsequently rescinded the

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

    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 June 7, 2016.\3\ On May 3, 2016, the 
Department extended the deadline for the preliminary results to October 
5, 2016.

    On September 7, 2016, Petitioner submitted new factual information

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    In response to the Department's quantity and value questionnaire 
issued on November 9, 2015, Lodha Offset reported that it made no sales 
of subject merchandise during the POR.\7\ On November 19, 2015, we 
issued a non-shipment inquiry instruction to U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to confirm Lodha Offset's claim of non-shipment.\8\ We 
did not receive any contradictory information from CBP. Based on Lodha 
Offset's claim of no shipments and because no information to the 
contrary was received by the Department from CBP, we preliminarily 
determine that Lodha Offset 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.

Assessment Rate

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review. If the weighted-average dumping margin for 
Kokuyo Riddhi or Navneet is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 
percent), we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem antidumping 
duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total entered value 
of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\9\ We will 
instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate 
calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis 
(i.e., 0.50 percent). Where either the respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. 
The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment 
of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final 
results of this review where applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with the Department's ``automatic assessment'' 
practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
each respondent for which they did not know that their 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 instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for respondents 
noted above will be the rates established in the final results of this 
administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or 
exporters not covered in this administrative 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 recently completed 
segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the 
producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the 
most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of 
the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers or exporters will continue to be 3.91 percent, the all-others 
rate established in the 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 and/or countervailing 
duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review 
period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the 
Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties 
occurred and increase the subsequent assessment of the antidumping 
duties by the amount of antidumping duties reimbursed.
    These preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213(h) and 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: October 5, 2016.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
