Subject merchandise includes certain off road tires produced in the subject countries whether mounted on wheels or rims in a subject country or in a third country. Certain off road tires are covered whether or not they are accompanied by other parts, e.g., a wheel, rim, axle parts, bolts, nuts, etc. Certain off road tires that enter attached to a vehicle are not covered by the scope. Specifically excluded from the scope are passenger vehicle and light truck tires, racing tires, mobile home tires, motorcycle tires, allterrain vehicle tires, bicycle tires, on-road or on-highway trailer tires, and truck and bus tires. Such tires generally have in common that the symbol ‘‘DOT’’ must appear on the sidewall, certifying that the tire conforms to applicable motor vehicle safety standards. Such excluded tires may also have the following prefixes and suffixes included as part of the size designation on their sidewalls: Prefix letter designations: AT—Identifies a tire intended for service on All-Terrain Vehicles; P—Identifies a tire intended primarily for service on passenger cars; LT—Identifies a tire intended primarily for service on light trucks; T—Identifies a tire intended for oneposition ‘‘temporary use’’ as a spare only; and ST—Identifies a special tire for trailers in highway service. Suffix letter designations: TR—Identifies a tire for service on trucks, buses, and other vehicles with rims having specified rim diameter of nominal plus 0.156’’ or plus 0.250’’; MH—Identifies tires for Mobile Homes; HC—Identifies a heavy duty tire designated for use on ‘‘HC’’ 15’’ tapered rims used on trucks, buses, and other vehicles. This suffix is intended to differentiate among tires for VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:59 Jan 09, 2017 Jkt 241001 light trucks, and other vehicles or other services, which use a similar designation. Example: 8R17.5 LT, 8R17.5 HC; LT—Identifies light truck tires for service on trucks, buses, trailers, and multipurpose passenger vehicles used in nominal highway service; ST—Special tires for trailers in highway service; and M/C—Identifies tires and rims for motorcycles. The following types of tires are also excluded from the scope: Pneumatic tires that are not new, including recycled or retreaded tires and used tires; non-pneumatic tires, including solid rubber tires; aircraft tires; and turf, lawn and garden, and golf tires. Also excluded from the scope are mining and construction tires that have a rim diameter equal to or exceeding 39 inches. Such tires may be distinguished from other tires of similar size by the number of plies that the construction and mining tires contain (minimum of 16) and the weight of such tires (minimum 1500 pounds). The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 4011.20.1025, 4011.20.1035, 4011.20.5030, 4011.20.5050, 4011.61.0000, 4011.62.0000, 4011.63.0000, 4011.69.0050, 4011.92.0000, 4011.93.4000, 4011.93.8000, 4011.94.4000, 4011.94.8000, 8431.49.9038, 8431.49.9090, 8709.90.0020, and 8716.90.1020.

AGENCY: Background Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), may request, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation. All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by the Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting date. Respondent Selection In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (‘‘APO’’) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the E:\FR\FM\10JAN1.SGM 10JAN1 2952 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 6 / Tuesday, January 10, 2017 / Notices initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review. In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, the Department finds that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, the Department will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, if the Department determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, the Department will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, the Department will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that requests a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that the Department may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. In order to provide parties additional certainty with respect to when the Department will exercise its discretion to extend this 90-day deadline, interested parties are advised that, with regard to reviews requested on the basis of anniversary months on or after January 2017, the Department does not intend to extend the 90-day deadline unless the requestor demonstrates that an extraordinary circumstance prevented it from submitting a timely withdrawal request. Determinations by the Department to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis. The Department is providing this notice on its Web site, as well as in its ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ notices, so that interested parties will be aware of the manner in which the Department intends to exercise its discretion in the future. Opportunity To Request a Review: Not later than the last day of January 2017,1 interested parties may request administrative review of the following orders, findings, or suspended investigations, with anniversary dates in January for the following periods: Period of review 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 1/1/16–12/31/16 Countervailing Duty Proceedings Calcium Hypochlorite C–570–009 ........................................................................................................................................

For both antidumping and countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for which it is requesting a review. In addition, a domestic interested party or an interested party described in section 771(9)(B) of the Act must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or exporters. If the interested party intends for the Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which was produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the request is intended to cover. Note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate in prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an administrative review of that party absent new information as to the party’s location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to determine if the interested party’s attempts were reasonable, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii). As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), and NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), the Department clarified its practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping findings and orders.2 Further, as explained in Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change 2 See also the Enforcement and Compliance Web site at http://trade.gov/enforcement/. VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:59 Jan 09, 2017 Jkt 241001 in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013), the Department clarified its practice with regard to the conditional review of the non-market economy (NME) entity in administrative reviews of antidumping duty orders. The Department will no longer consider the NME entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews. Accordingly, the NME entity will not be under review unless the Department specifically receives a request for, or self-initiates, a review of the NME entity.3 In administrative reviews of antidumping duty orders on merchandise from NME countries where a review of the NME entity has not been initiated, but where an individual exporter for which a review was initiated does not qualify for a separate rate, the Department will issue a final decision indicating that the company in question is part of the NME entity. However, in that situation, because no review of the NME entity was conducted, the NME entity’s entries were not subject to the review and the rate for the NME entity is not subject to change as a result of that review (although the rate for the individual exporter may change as a function of the finding that the exporter is part of the NME entity). Following initiation of an antidumping administrative review when there is no review requested of the NME entity, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate entries for all exporters not named in the initiation notice, including those that were suspended at the NME entity rate. All requests must be filed electronically in Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘ACCESS’’) on Enforcement and Compliance’s ACCESS Web site at http:// access.trade.gov.4 Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on the petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request. The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Initiation of Administrative Review of 3 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), parties should specify that they are requesting a review of entries from exporters comprising the entity, and to the extent possible, include the names of such exporters in their request. 4 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).

Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review

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

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E. Waters, Office of AD/CVD 
Operations, Customs Liaison Unit, Enforcement and Compliance, 
International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th 
Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: 
(202) 482-4735.

Background

    Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an 
antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended 
investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), may request, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or 
countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation.
    All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by the 
Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from 
the applicable starting date.

Respondent Selection

    In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to 
requests made for the orders identified below, the Department intends 
to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend 
to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (``APO'') 
to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the

[[Page 2952]]

initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent 
selection within 21 days of publication of the initiation Federal 
Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in 
commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on 
the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter 
as possible. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and 
respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on 
the record of the review.
    In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit 
individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection 
under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act:
    In general, the Department finds that determinations concerning 
whether particular companies should be ``collapsed'' (i.e., treated as 
a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) 
require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, 
which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, the 
Department will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent 
selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the 
respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to 
collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping 
proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper 
review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to 
this review, if the Department determined, or continued to treat, that 
company as collapsed with others, the Department will assume that such 
companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them 
for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, the Department will not 
collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are 
requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously 
were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which 
they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete 
the Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent 
selection, in general each company must report volume and value data 
separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other 
party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity 
with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company 
or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding 
where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete 
quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted.

Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that requests a review 
may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of 
the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation 
provides that the Department may extend this time if it is reasonable 
to do so. In order to provide parties additional certainty with respect 
to when the Department will exercise its discretion to extend this 90-
day deadline, interested parties are advised that, with regard to 
reviews requested on the basis of anniversary months on or after 
January 2017, the Department does not intend to extend the 90-day 
deadline unless the requestor demonstrates that an extraordinary 
circumstance prevented it from submitting a timely withdrawal request. 
Determinations by the Department to extend the 90-day deadline will be 
made on a case-by-case basis.
    The Department is providing this notice on its Web site, as well as 
in its ``Opportunity to Request Administrative Review'' notices, so 
that interested parties will be aware of the manner in which the 
Department intends to exercise its discretion in the future.
    Opportunity To Request a Review: Not later than the last day of 
January 2017,\1\ interested parties may request administrative review 
of the following orders, findings, or suspended investigations, with 
anniversary dates in January for the following periods:

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), an interested party as 
defined by section 771(9) of the Act may request in writing that the 
Secretary conduct an administrative review. For both antidumping and 
countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the 
individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or 
an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for 
which it is requesting a review. In addition, a domestic interested 
party or an interested party described in section 771(9)(B) of the Act 
must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular 
producers or exporters. If the interested party intends for the 
Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer 
if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which 
was produced in more than one country of origin and each country of 
origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must 
state specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the 
request is intended to cover.
    Note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate in 
prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an 
administrative review of that party absent new information as to the 
party's location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request 
for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it 
requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation 
of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same 
time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to 
determine if the interested party's attempts were reasonable, pursuant 
to 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii).
    As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), and Non-
Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping 
Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), the Department clarified its 
practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on 
imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The 
public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to 
request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping 
findings and orders.\2\

    Further, as explained in Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of 
Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity 
in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013), 
the Department clarified its practice with regard to the conditional 
review of the non-market economy (NME) entity in administrative reviews 
of antidumping duty orders. The Department will no longer consider the 
NME entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative 
reviews. Accordingly, the NME entity will not be under review unless 
the Department specifically receives a request for, or self-initiates, 
a review of the NME entity.\3\ In administrative reviews of antidumping 
duty orders on merchandise from NME countries where a review of the NME 
entity has not been initiated, but where an individual exporter for 
which a review was initiated does not qualify for a separate rate, the 
Department will issue a final decision indicating that the company in 
question is part of the NME entity. However, in that situation, because 
no review of the NME entity was conducted, the NME entity's entries 
were not subject to the review and the rate for the NME entity is not 
subject to change as a result of that review (although the rate for the 
individual exporter may change as a function of the finding that the 
exporter is part of the NME entity).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), parties should 
specify that they are requesting a review of entries from exporters 
comprising the entity, and to the extent possible, include the names 
of such exporters in their request.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Following initiation of an antidumping administrative review when 
there is no review requested of the NME entity, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate entries for all exporters not named in the 
initiation notice, including those that were suspended at the NME 
entity rate.
    All requests must be filed electronically in Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (``ACCESS'') on Enforcement and Compliance's ACCESS Web 
site at http://access.trade.gov.\4\ Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on the 
petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request.

Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order 
Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of 
``Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation'' for requests received 
by the last day of January 2017. If the Department does not receive, by 
the last day of January 2017, a request for review of entries covered 
by an order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice 
and for the period identified above, the Department will instruct CBP 
to assess antidumping or countervailing duties on those entries at a 
rate equal to the cash deposit of (or bond for) estimated antidumping 
or countervailing duties required on those entries at the time of 
entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption and to continue to 
collect the cash deposit previously ordered.
    For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no 
assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ``gap'' period of 
the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the period of review.
    This notice is not required by statute but is published as a 
service to the international trading community.

    Dated: January 3, 2017.
Gary Taverman,
Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
