(‘‘Jaan Huey’’) and Shanghai Hanhong Paper Co., Ltd. and Hanhong Paper Co. Ltd (together, ‘‘Hanhong’’). We invited interested parties to comment on our preliminary results. No party provided comment. Accordingly, for the final results of review, we continue to find that because neither respondent participated in this review, Jaan Huey and Hanhong have not demonstrated eligibility for a AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 separate rate in this segment of the proceeding, and therefore, we are treating both as part of the PRC-wide entity.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 12, 2016, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the Preliminary Results 1 of the instant review, preliminarily finding that because neither respondent participated in this review, Jaan Huey and Hanhong did not demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this segment of the proceeding and are, thus, both a part of the PRC-wide entity. We invited interested parties to submit comments on the Preliminary Results. We received no comments from interested parties. The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this review includes certain lightweight thermal paper, which is thermal paper with a basis weight of 70 grams per square meter (g/m2) (with a tolerance of ± 4.0 g/m2) or less; irrespective of dimensions; 2 with or without a base coat 3 on one or both sides; with thermal active coating(s) 4 on one or both sides that is a mixture of the dye and the developer that react and form an image when heat is applied; with or without 1 See Lightweight Thermal Paper from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2014– 2015, 81 FR 53431 (August 12, 2016) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). 2 LWTP is typically produced in jumbo rolls that are slit to the specifications of the converting equipment and then converted into finished slit rolls. Both jumbo and converted rolls (as well as LWTP in any other form, presentation, or dimension) are covered by the scope of these orders. 3 A base coat, when applied, is typically made of clay and/or latex and like materials and is intended to cover the rough surface of the paper substrate and to provide insulating value. 4 A thermal active coating is typically made of sensitizer, dye, and co-reactant.
