SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) published its Preliminary Rescission for the new shipper review (NSR) of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China on August 8, 2016. The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2015, through July 31, 2015. For the final results of this review, as discussed below, we continue to find that the single U.S. sale made by Linyi Yuqiao International Trade Co., Ltd. (Yuqiao) during the POR is not bona fide. Because any weighted average dumping margins calculated in a NSR must be based solely on bona fide sales, we are rescinding this NSR. DATES: Effective January 5, 2017.

Heaney or Erin Kearney, AD/ CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4475 and (202) 482–0167 respectively. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:06 Jan 04, 2017 Jkt 241001 Background On August 8, 2016, the Department of Commerce (Department) published its Preliminary Rescission for the NSR of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China.1 For a complete description of the events that followed the publication of the Preliminary Rescission, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.2 The Issues and 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 http://access.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/ index.html. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are certain preserved mushrooms, whether imported whole, sliced, diced, or as stems and pieces. The certain preserved mushrooms covered under this order are the species Agaricus bisporus and Agaricus bitorquis. ‘‘Certain Preserved Mushrooms’’ refers to mushrooms that have been prepared or preserved by cleaning, blanching, and sometimes slicing or cutting. These mushrooms are then packed and heated in containers including, but not limited to, cans or glass jars in a suitable liquid medium, including, but not limited to, water, brine, butter or butter sauce. Certain preserved mushrooms may be imported whole, sliced, diced, or as stems and pieces. Included within the scope of this order are ‘‘brined’’ mushrooms, which are presalted and 1 See Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Rescission of 2015 Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 81 FR 52403 (August 8, 2016) (Preliminary Rescission); see also Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 64 FR 8308 (February 19, 1999) (Order). 2 See Memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Antidumping and Countervailing Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, entitled ‘‘Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Rescission,’’ issued concurrently with and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum).

A list of the issues which parties raised is attached to this notice as an Appendix. Rescission of New Shipper Review For the Preliminary Rescission, the Department analyzed the bona fides of Yuqiao’s single U.S. sale during the POR, and preliminarily found it was not a bona fide sale.4 In Yuqiao’s case brief, Yuqiao submitted comments on the Department’s bona fides analysis.5 In this final rescission, we have analyzed Yuqiao’s comments and continue to determine that Yuqiao’s single U.S. sale is non-bona fide. Therefore, the Department is rescinding this NSR. For a complete discussion, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Assessment As the Department is rescinding this NSR, we have not calculated a company-specific dumping margin for Yuqiao. However, the Department initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC covering numerous exporters, including Yuqiao, for the period of February 1, 2015 through January 31, 2016, which overlaps in part with the POR of this NSR.6 Thus, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to suspend subject merchandise exported by Yuqiao and 3 For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. 4 See Preliminary Rescission; see also Memorandum from Michael J.
