SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on drawn stainless steel sinks (drawn sinks) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:43 May 04, 2017 Jkt 241001 Scope of the Order The products covered by the order include drawn stainless steel sinks. Imports of subject merchandise are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7324.10.0000 and 7324.10.0010. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.1 Methodology DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE AGENCY: The period of review (POR) is April 1, 2015, through March 31, 2016. The review covers two mandatory respondents, Guangdong Dongyuan Kitchenware Industrial Co., Ltd. (Dongyuan) and Guangdong Yingao Kitchen Utensils Co. Ltd (Yingao). We preliminarily determine that sales of subject merchandise by both respondents have been made at prices below normal value (NV). We also preliminarily grant separate rates to ten companies, which demonstrated eligibility for separate rate status, but were not selected for individual examination. Finally, we preliminarily find that New Shichu Import and Export Company Limited (New Sichu) made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective May 5, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For the mandatory respondents Dongyuan and Yingao, export price and constructed export price were calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (NME) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV was calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. 1 For a complete description of the Scope of the Order, see Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People’s Republic of China,’’ issued concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments On July 5, 2016, New Shichu submitted a timely-filed certification that they had no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise during the POR.2 Additionally, our inquiry to CBP did not identify any POR entries of New Shichu’s subject merchandise. Based on the foregoing, the Department preliminarily determines that New Shichu did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. For additional information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

For each individually-examined respondent in this review, if we continue to calculate a weighted-average dumping margin that is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results, we will calculate importer- (or customer-) specific perunit duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s (or customer’s) examined sales to the total sales quantity associated with those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).9 The Department will also calculate (estimated) ad valorem importer-specific assessment rates with which to assess whether the per-unit assessment rate is de minimis. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importerspecific ad valorem assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis.

For the respondents that were not selected for individual examination in this administrative review and qualified for a separate rate, the assessment rate will be equal to the average of the weighted-average dumping margins assigned to Dongyuan and Yingao in the final results of this review.11 For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by the companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if we continue to find that New Shichu had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries of subject merchandise from New Shichu will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.12 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that rate established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then a cash deposit rate of zero will be established for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporterspecific 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 the rate for the PRC-wide entity, which is 76.45 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter(s) that supplied that non-PRC exporter.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam). The period of review is February 1, 2016, through January 31, 2017. DATES: Effective May 5, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On April 10, 2017, based on a timely request for review by M&B Metal Products Company, Inc. (the petitioner),1 the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers from Vietnam covering the period February 1, 2016, through January 31, 2017.2 The review covers 66 companies.3 On April 24, 2017, the petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review on all 66 companies listed in the Initiation Notice.4 No other party requested a review of these exporters or any other exporters of subject merchandise. 1 See Letter to the Secretary of Commerce from the petitioner, ‘‘Steel Wire Garment Hangers from Vietnam: Request for Fourth Administrative Review,’’ dated February 17, 2017 (Request for Review). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 17188 dated April 10, 2017 (Initiation Notice). In the Initiation Notice, the Department inadvertently listed one company, Nghia Phuong Nam Production Company, as Nghia Phoung Nam Production Company. The correct company name for which a review was requested is Nghia Phuong Nam Production Company. See also Request for Review at Attachment 1. 3 Id., 82 FR at 17196–17197. 4 See Letter to the Secretary of Commerce from the petitioner, ‘‘Fourth Administrative Review of Steel Wire Garment Hangers from Vietnam— Petitioner’s Withdrawal of Review Request,’’ dated April 24, 2017. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, the petitioner timely withdrew its request by the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. As a result, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers from Vietnam for the period February 1, 2016, through January 31, 2017, in its entirety. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Because the Department is rescinding this administrative review in its entirety, the entries to which this administrative review pertained shall be assessed antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, if appropriate. Notifications This notice serves as a final 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 review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the E:\FR\FM\05MYN1.SGM 05MYN1

Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks From the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and 
Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2015-2016

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 drawn stainless 
steel sinks (drawn sinks) from the People's Republic of China (PRC). 
The period of review (POR) is April 1, 2015, through March 31, 2016. 
The review covers two mandatory respondents, Guangdong Dongyuan 
Kitchenware Industrial Co., Ltd. (Dongyuan) and Guangdong Yingao 
Kitchen Utensils Co. Ltd (Yingao). We preliminarily determine that 
sales of subject merchandise by both respondents have been made at 
prices below normal value (NV). We also preliminarily grant separate 
rates to ten companies, which demonstrated eligibility for separate 
rate status, but were not selected for individual examination. Finally, 
we preliminarily find that New Shichu Import and Export Company Limited 
(New Sichu) made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. We 
invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Effective May 5, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Terre Keaton Stefanova or Rebecca 
Janz, AD/CVD Operations, Office II, Enforcement and Compliance,

Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
1280 and (202) 482-2972, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order include drawn stainless steel 
sinks. Imports of subject merchandise are currently classified under 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 
7324.10.0000 and 7324.10.0010. Although the HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description 
of the scope of the order is dispositive.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For a complete description of the Scope of the Order, see 
Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks 
from the People's Republic of China,'' issued concurrently with and 
hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For the 
mandatory respondents Dongyuan and Yingao, export price and constructed 
export price were calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. 
Because the PRC is a non-market economy (NME) within the meaning of 
section 771(18) of the Act, NV was calculated in accordance with 
section 773(c) of the Act.
    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 
registered users at https://access.trade.gov, and to all parties in the 
Central Records Unit, room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and the electronic versions of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of topics included 
in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is provided as an appendix to 
this notice.

Separate Rates

    We preliminarily determine that information placed on the record by 
the mandatory respondents, as well as by the following ten companies 
which were not selected for individual examination, demonstrated 
eligibility for separate rate status: Feidong Import and Export Co., 
Ltd.; Ningbo Afa Kitchen and Bath Co., Ltd.; Xinhe Stainless Steel 
Products Co., Ltd.; KaiPing Dawn Plumbing Products, Inc.; Jiangmen 
Hongmao Trading Co., Ltd.; Jiangmen New Star Hi-Tech Enterprise Ltd.; 
Foshan Zhaoshun Trade Co., Ltd.; Zhuhai KOHLER Kitchen & Bathroom 
Products Co., Ltd.; B&R Industries Limited; and Zhongshan Superte 
Kitchenware Co., Ltd.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On July 5, 2016, New Shichu submitted a timely-filed certification 
that they had no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR.\2\ Additionally, our inquiry to CBP did not identify 
any POR entries of New Shichu's subject merchandise. Based on the 
foregoing, the Department preliminarily determines that New Shichu did 
not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. For additional 
information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See letter from New Shichu, ``Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks 
from the People's Republic of China Separate Rate Certification and 
Provisional No Sales Certification,'' dated July 5, 2016.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with our practice in NME cases, the Department is not 
rescinding this administrative review for New Shichu, but intends to 
complete the

review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final 
results of the review.\3\

    Unless otherwise extended, the Department intends to issue the 
final results of this administrative review, which will include the 
results of its analysis of issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 
days of publication of these preliminary results, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review.\8\ The Department intends to issue appropriate 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of the 
final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For each individually-examined respondent in this review, if we 
continue to calculate a weighted-average dumping margin that is not 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results, 
we will calculate importer- (or customer-) specific per-unit duty 
assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's (or customer's) examined sales to the 
total sales quantity associated with those sales, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1).\9\ The Department will also calculate (estimated) ad 
valorem importer-specific assessment rates with which to assess whether 
the per-unit assessment rate is de minimis. We will instruct CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review when the importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate calculated 
in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. Where 
either the respondent's ad valorem weighted-average dumping margin is 
zero or de minimis, or an importer-(or customer-) specific ad valorem 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis,\10\ we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the respondents that were not selected for individual 
examination in this administrative review and qualified for a separate 
rate, the assessment rate will be equal to the average of the weighted-
average dumping margins assigned to Dongyuan and Yingao in the final 
results of this review.\11\

    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases 
submitted by the companies individually examined during this review, 
the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-
wide rate. In addition, if we continue to find that New Shichu had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries of subject 
merchandise from New Shichu will be liquidated at the PRC-wide 
rate.\12\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that rate established in the final results of this review (except, if 
the rate is zero or de minimis, then a cash deposit rate of zero will 
be established for that company); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters 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 the rate for the PRC-wide 
entity, which is 76.45 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not received their own rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter(s) that 
supplied that non-PRC exporter. These

deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties 
prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing 
duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping 
duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results of review 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(l) and 777(i)(l) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.213.

    Dated: May 1, 2017.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
