SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) preliminarily determines that mandatory respondent Zhejiang New Oriental Fastener Co., Ltd. (New Oriental), does not qualify for a separate rate and is, therefore, considered a part of the People’s Republic of China (PRC)wide entity for its exports of subject merchandise exported to the United States during the period of review (POR), April 1, 2015, through March 31, 2016. We also preliminarily find that mandatory respondent IFI & Morgan Ltd. and RMB Fasteners Ltd. (RMB/IFI Group), did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties (AD) on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective May 5, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On June 6, 2016, the Department published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of an administrative review of the AD order on certain steel threaded rod (STR) from the PRC for the period of review April 1, 2015, through March 31, 2016. The Department initiated a review with respect to 117 companies.1 Subsequently, on September 12, 2016, the Department published in the Federal Register a correction to the Initiation Notice, adding an additional three companies.2 The Department selected two mandatory respondents, New Oriental and RMB/IFI Group, based on highest volume of exports.3 Between September 6, 2016, and April 5, 2017, the Department requested and received information from the RMB/IFI Group pertaining to RMB/IFI Group’s claim of no shipments, and also received comments from Petitioner 4 about this issue. The other mandatory respondent, New Oriental, did not respond to the Department’s AD questionnaire. Tianjin Port Free Trade Zone Tianjin Star International Trade Co., Ltd. (Tianjin Star), submitted a separate rate application, and requested to be a mandatory or voluntary respondent, but it never responded to the Department’s AD questionnaire. On September 21, 2016, the petitioner withdrew its request for review for 115 companies.5 However, the petitioner did not withdraw its request for review on New Oriental, RMB/IFI Group, Tianjin Star, Zhejiang Heiter Industries Co., Ltd. (Zhejiang Heiter Industries), and Zhejiang Heiter Mfg & Trade Co. Ltd. (Zhejiang Heiter Mfg). Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes steel threaded rod. The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under subheading 7318.15.5051, 7318.15.5056, 7318.15.5090, and 7318.15.2095 of the United States 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 81 FR 36272 (June 6, 2016) (Initiation Notice). The Initiation Notice inaccurately stated the period of review, which was corrected in a notice published on July 7, 2016. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 81 FR 44260, 44265 (July 7, 2016). 2 See Initiation Notice, 81 FR at 62726 dated September 12, 2016. 3 See Respondent Selection Memo dated August 29, 2016. 4 Vulcan Threaded Products Inc. (Vulcan) (the petitioner). 5 See the petitioner’submission dated September 21, 2016. PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21189 Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive.6 Rescission of Review, In Part Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, ‘‘in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.’’ Petitioner timely withdrew its review requests with respect to 115 companies. Because we received no other requests for review of these 115 companies,7 we are rescinding the administrative review with respect to all companies except New Oriental, RMB/IFI Group, Tianjin Star, Zhejiang Heiter Industries and Zhejiang Heiter Mfg, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). No Shipments On July 5, 2016, RMB/IFI Group filed a no-shipment certification indicating that it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. During the course of this review, the Department examined this no shipments claim and provides its analysis in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Based on the record evidence, we preliminarily determine that RMB/IFI Group did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. In addition, we find that it is appropriate not to rescind the review, in part, in this circumstance, and to complete the review with respect to the above-named company, issuing appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.8 Should evidence contrary to RMB/IFI’s no-shipments claims arise, we will address the issue in accordance with our governing statute and regulations. Methodology The Department is conducting this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 6 For a full description of the scope of the Order, see Memorandum from Gary Taverman, Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary, AD/CVD Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, entitled, ‘‘Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the 2015–2016 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review’’ (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice. 7 See Appendix II for the list of companies. 8 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694–65695 (October 24, 2011).
