Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is diamond sawblades and parts thereof. The diamond sawblades subject to the order are currently classifiable under subheadings 8202 to 8206 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), and may also enter under 6804.21.00. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description is dispositive. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.1 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Five companies that received a separate rate in previous segments of the proceeding and are subject to this review reported that they did not have any exports of subject merchandise during the POR.2 U.S. Customs and 1 See the Memorandum from Deputy Assistant Secretary Christian Marsh to Assistant Secretary Paul Piquado entitled, ‘‘Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2014– 2015,’’ dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 2 See the February 11, 2016, no-shipment letters from Danyang City Ou Di Ma Tools Co., Ltd., Qingdao Hyosung Diamond Tools Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Starcraft Tools Company Limited, the February 12, 2016, no-shipment letter from Qingdao PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Border Protection (CBP) data for the POR indicated that these companies had no shipments.3 Additionally, we requested that CBP report any contrary information.4 To date, CBP has not responded to our inquiry with any contrary information and we have not received any evidence that these companies had any shipments of the subject merchandise sold to the United States during the POR. Further, consistent with our practice, we find that it is not appropriate to rescind the review with respect to these companies but, rather, to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of review.5 Separate Rates The Department preliminarily determines that 24 respondents are eligible to receive separate rates in this review.6 Separate Rates for Eligible NonSelected Respondents Consistent with our practice, we assigned to eligible non-selected respondents the weighted-average margin calculated for Bosun Tools Co., Ltd. as the separate rate for the preliminary results of this review.7 Shinhan Diamond Industrial Co., Ltd., and the April 1, 2016, letter correcting the separate rate certification and certifying no shipment from Danyang Tsunda Diamond Tools Co., Ltd. 3 See the CBP data attached to the letter to all interested parties dated January 15, 2016. 4 See CBP message numbers 6294301, 6294302, 6294305, 6294306, and 6294307 dated October 20, 2016, available at http://adcvd.cbp.dhs.gov/ adcvdweb/. 5 See, e.g., Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results and Final Rescission, In Part, of Administrative Review and Final Results of New Shipper Review; 2013, 80 FR 34619 (June 17, 2015). 6 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 4–8, for more details. 7 Id. E:\FR\FM\09DEN1.SGM 09DEN1 89046 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 237 / Friday, December 9, 2016 / Notices PRC-Wide Entity The Department’s change in policy regarding conditional review of the PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.8 Under this policy, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department selfinitiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRCwide entity in this review, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate is not subject to change (i.e., 82.05 percent).9 Aside from the no-shipments and separate rate companies discussed above, and the company for which the review is being rescinded, the Department considers all other companies for which a review was requested (which did not file a separate rate application) to be part of the PRCwide entity.10 Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Act. For Bosun Tools Co., Ltd., constructed export price was calculated 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, normal value was calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For the Jiangsu Fengtai Single Entity,11 we assigned a margin based on adverse facts available pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Specifically, the Department will apply the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Final Modification for Reviews.18 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.19 For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by exporters individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the 16 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 18 See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8103 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews). 19 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 17 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:13 Dec 08, 2016 Jkt 241001 PRC-wide rate.20 The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For subject merchandise exported by the companies listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These 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 prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People's Republic of 
China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 
2014-2015

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on diamond 
sawblades and parts thereof (diamond sawblades) from the People's 
Republic of China (the PRC). The period of review (POR) is November 1, 
2014, through October 31, 2015. The Department has preliminarily 
determined that certain companies covered by this review made sales of 
subject merchandise at less than normal value. Interested parties are 
invited to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Effective December 9, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Yang Jin Chun or Bryan Hansen, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office I, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue 
NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-5760 and (202) 482-
3683, respectively.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is diamond sawblades and parts 
thereof. The diamond sawblades subject to the order are currently 
classifiable under subheadings 8202 to 8206 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), and may also enter under 
6804.21.00. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience 
and customs purposes, the written description is dispositive. A full 
description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.\1\

Marsh to Assistant Secretary Paul Piquado entitled, ``Diamond 
Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People's Republic of China: 
Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review; 2014-2015,'' dated concurrently with and 
hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Five companies that received a separate rate in previous segments 
of the proceeding and are subject to this review reported that they did 
not have any exports of subject merchandise during the POR.\2\ U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for the POR indicated that 
these companies had no shipments.\3\ Additionally, we requested that 
CBP report any contrary information.\4\ To date, CBP has not responded 
to our inquiry with any contrary information and we have not received 
any evidence that these companies had any shipments of the subject 
merchandise sold to the United States during the POR. Further, 
consistent with our practice, we find that it is not appropriate to 
rescind the review with respect to these companies but, rather, to 
complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on 
the final results of review.\5\

PRC-Wide Entity

    The Department's change in policy regarding conditional review of 
the PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.\8\ Under 
this policy, the PRC-wide 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., 82.05 percent).\9\ Aside from the 
no-shipments and separate rate companies discussed above, and the 
company for which the review is being rescinded, the Department 
considers all other companies for which a review was requested (which 
did not file a separate rate application) to be part of the PRC-wide 
entity.\10\

Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity

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, as 
described below.''). Companies that are subject to this 
administrative review that are considered to be part of the PRC-wide 
entity are ASHINE Diamond Tools Co., Ltd., Hebei XMF Tools Group 
Co., Ltd., Henan Huanghe Whirlwind Co., Ltd., Henan Huanghe 
Whirlwind International Co., Ltd., and Pujiang Talent Diamond Tools 
Co., Ltd.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Act. For Bosun Tools Co., Ltd., constructed export 
price was calculated 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, normal value was calculated in accordance with section 
773(c) of the Act. For the Jiangsu Fengtai Single Entity,\11\ we 
assigned a margin based on adverse facts available pursuant to section 
776(b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ We preliminarily treat Jiangsu Fengtai Diamond Tool 
Manufacture Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Fengtai Tools Co., Ltd., and Jiangsu 
Fengtai Sawing Industry Co., Ltd., as a single entity. See 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 2, n. 4 for details.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 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

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of review, the Department will 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review.\17\ If a respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.5 percent) in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate an importer-specific 
assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of those sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 
Specifically, the Department will apply the assessment rate calculation 
method adopted in Final Modification for Reviews.\18\ Where an 
importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de 
minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \18\ See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8103 (February 14, 2012) 
(Final Modification for Reviews).
    \19\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases 
submitted by exporters individually examined during this review, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide 
rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under 
review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended 
entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that 
exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\20\ The 
Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of 
review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For subject 
merchandise exported by the companies listed above that have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final 
results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero 
cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a 
separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for 
all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the 
PRC-wide entity; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that 
non-PRC exporter. These 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 prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: December 5, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
