SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) preliminarily determines that 1-Hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-Diphosphonic Acid (‘‘HEDP’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value (‘‘LTFV’’), as provided in section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is July 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015. The estimated weighted-average dumping margins are shown in the ‘‘Preliminary Determination’’ section of this notice. Interested parties are invited to comment on this preliminary determination. AGENCY: DATES: Effective November 4, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Omar Qureshi or Kenneth Hawkins, AD/ CVD Operations, Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: Background The Department published the notice of initiation of this investigation on April 28, 2016.1 For a complete description of the events that followed the initiation of this investigation, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice.2 A list of topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included as Appendix II 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 the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is HEDP from the PRC. For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigation,’’ in Appendix I. 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 Certain interested parties commented on the scope of the investigation as it appeared in the Initiation Notice. For a summary of the product coverage comments and rebuttal responses submitted to the record for this preliminary determination, and accompanying discussion and analysis of all comments timely received, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.5 Methodology The Department is conducting this investigation in accordance with section 731 of the Act. We calculated export prices and 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. In addition, the Department relied on adverse facts available under sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. Specifically, the Department did not receive timely responses to its Q&V questionnaire or separate rate applications from numerous PRC exporters and/or producers of merchandise under consideration that were named in the Petition and to whom the Department issued Q&V questionnaires.6 Because nonresponsive PRC companies have not demonstrated that they are eligible for separate rate status, the Department considers them to be part of the PRCwide entity.7 For a full description of the methodology underlying our preliminary conclusions, 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. Policy Bulletin 05.1 describes this practice.8 Preliminary Determination The Department preliminarily determines that the following weightedaverage dumping margins exist during the POI: Weighted-average dumping margin Exporter Nanjing University of Chemical Technology Changzhou Wujin Water Quality Stabilizer Factory. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Producer Nanjing University of Chemical Technology Changzhou Wujin Water Quality Stabilizer Factory and Nantong Uniphos Chemicals Co., Ltd.
