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.

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.

SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for the period of review (POR) April 1, 2015, through March 31, 2016. The Department selected two companies, Jacobi Carbons AB and Datong Juqiang Activated Carbon Co., as mandatory respondents for individual examination. The Department preliminarily finds that subject merchandise has been sold in the United States at prices below normal value (NV) during the POR. The Department invites interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective May 5, 2017.

SRADOVICH on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain activated carbon. The products are currently classifiable under VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:43 May 04, 2017 Jkt 241001 the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 3802.10.00.1 Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order remains dispositive. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Based on an analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) information, and no shipment certifications submitted by Calgon Carbon (Tianjin) Co., Ltd., Shanxi Dapu International Trade Co., Ltd., and Sinoacarbon International Trading Co., Ltd., the Department preliminarily determines that these companies had no shipments during the POR. For additional information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Consistent with our practice in nonmarket economy (NME) cases, the Department is not rescinding this review, in part, but intends to complete the review with respect to these companies, for which it has preliminarily found no shipments, and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.2 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). We calculated constructed export prices and export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a NME within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV has been 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. A list of the topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included as an appendix to this notice.

Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, issued dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice. 2 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694–95 (October 24, 2011).

ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov, and it is available 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 is available at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Verification As provided in sections 782(i)(3)(A)– (B) of the Act, we intend to verify the information upon which we will rely in determining our final results of review with respect to the two mandatory respondents, Jacobi Carbons AB and Datong Juqiang Activated Carbon Co., Ltd. Preliminary Results of the Review The Department preliminarily finds that 186 companies for which a review was requested did not establish eligibility for a separate rate because they either failed to provide a separate rate application or separate rate certification (SRC).3 As such, we preliminarily determine that these 186 companies are part of the PRC-wide entity.4 3 While Ningxia Guanghua Activated Carbon Co, Ltd. (Guanghua) submitted a timely SRC, it did not have any sales to the United States. Additionally, we note that Guanghua is part of a single entity with Ningxia Guanghua Cherishmet Activated Carbon Co., Ltd. See ‘‘Separate Rates’’ section of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum; see also, Preliminary Decision Memorandum at Attachment I for a complete list of the 186 companies which were not found eligible for a separate rate. 4 Because no interested party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity and the Department no longer considers the PRC-wide entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews, we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the rate for the PRC-wide entity is not subject to change as a result of this review. See 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, 65969–70 (November 4, 2013). The PRCwide entity rate of 2.42 U.S. dollars per kilogram was last reviewed in Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012– 2013, 79 FR 70163 (November 25, 2014).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

Metal Products Company, Inc. (the petitioner),\1\ the Department 
published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an

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

Phoung Nam Production Company. The correct company name for which a

    \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

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

[[Page 21195]]

regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to 
sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(4).
