No other interested party commented on these submissions. Scope of the Order The scope of this order covers narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge, in any length, but with a width (measured at the narrowest span of the ribbon) less than or equal to 12 centimeters, composed of, in whole or in part, manmade fibers (whether artificial or synthetic, including but not limited to nylon, polyester, rayon, polypropylene, and polyethylene teraphthalate), metal threads and/or metalized yarns, or any combination thereof.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments On November 23, 2016, Fujian Roungshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi He timely filed statements reporting that they did not export or sell subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.9 Additionally, our inquiry to CBP did not identify any reviewable POR entries of subject merchandise from Fujian Rongshu or Xiamen Yi He. Based on the foregoing, the Department preliminarily determines that Fujian Roungshu and Xiamen Yi He did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. Consistent with our practice, we are not preliminarily rescinding the review with respect to Fujian Roungshu and Xiamen Yi He, but, rather, we will complete the review with respect to these companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.10 With respect to Roung Shu, as noted in the ‘‘Background’’ section above, we also examined U.S. entry data provided by CBP for POR entries of merchandise produced by Roung Shu. Based on a review of these data, as well as of Roung Shu’s responses to two information 9 In its statement of no shipments, Roung Shu informed the Department that certain shipments made in the previous review (i.e., the POR covering September 1, 2014, through August 31, 2015) may have entered the United States during the current POR. However, Roung Shu stated that it reported those shipments in the prior review.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On November 23, 2016, Fujian Roungshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi He 
timely filed statements reporting that they did not export or sell 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.\9\ 
Additionally, our inquiry to CBP did not identify any reviewable POR 
entries of subject merchandise from Fujian Rongshu or Xiamen Yi He. 
Based on the foregoing, the Department preliminarily determines that 
Fujian Roungshu and Xiamen Yi He did not have any reviewable 
transactions during the POR. Consistent with our practice, we are not 
preliminarily rescinding the review with respect to Fujian Roungshu and 
Xiamen Yi He, but, rather, we will complete the review with respect to 
these companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the 
final results of this review.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ In its statement of no shipments, Roung Shu informed the 
Department that certain shipments made in the previous review (i.e., 
the POR covering September 1, 2014, through August 31, 2015) may 
have entered the United States during the current POR. However, 
Roung Shu stated that it reported those shipments in the prior 
review. See Roung Shu No Sales Letter, at 1-2.
    \10\ See e.g., Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand; 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 
Partial Rescission of Review, Preliminary Determination of No 
Shipments; 2012-2013, 79 FR 15951, 15952 (March 24, 2014), unchanged 
in Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Final Determination of No 
Shipments, and Partial Rescission of Review; 2012-2013, 79 FR at 
51306 (August 28, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With respect to Roung Shu, as noted in the ``Background'' section 
above, we also examined U.S. entry data provided by CBP for POR entries 
of merchandise produced by Roung Shu. Based on a review of these data, 
as well as of Roung Shu's responses to two information

[[Page 26666]]

requests related to them,\11\ we also preliminarily determine that 
Roung Shu had no reviewable transactions during the POR. Therefore, 
consistent with our practice, we will complete the review with respect 
to Roung Shu as well, and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based 
on the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Roung Shu's Response to First Information Request; and 
Roung Shu's Response to Second Information Request. In these 
submissions, Roung Shu provided documentation to demonstrate that it 
only exported either non-subject ribbon, or subject ribbon, which 
was already included in the prior administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The 
petitioner's withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon was 
submitted within the 90-day period and, thus, is timely. Because the 
petitioner's withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon for 
an antidumping duty administrative review is timely, and because no 
other party requested a review of this company, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this administrative review, in 
part, with respect to Maple Ribbon.

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, we intend to verify 
information relied upon in making our final results.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ We note that the petitioner requested verification of Roung 
Shu. See the Petitioner's Letter, ``Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven 
Selvedge from Taiwan/Request For Verification,'' dated February 16, 
2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure and Public Comment

    Case briefs or other written comments may be submitted to the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance no later than seven 
days after the date on which the last verification report is issued in 
this review. Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in case briefs, 
may be submitted no later than five days after the deadline date for 
case briefs.\13\ Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2), parties 
who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this review are encouraged 
to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief 
summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.309; see also 19 CFR 351.303 (for general 
filing requirements).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, limited to issues raised in the case and rebuttal 
briefs, must submit a written request to the Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce, within 30 days 
after the date of publication of this notice. Requests should contain 
the party's name, address, and telephone number, the number of 
participants, whether any participant is a foreign national, and a list 
of the issues to be discussed. If a request for a hearing is made, the 
Department intends to hold the hearing at the U.S. Department of 
Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, at a time 
and date to be determined. Parties should confirm by telephone the 
date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled 
date.
    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the 
issues raised in any written briefs, no later than 120 days after the 
date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), unless this deadline is extended.

Assessment Rates

    With respect to Maple Ribbon, the Department will direct CBP to 
assess antidumping duties at the cash deposit rate in effect on the 
date of entry for entries during the period September 1, 2015, through 
August 31, 2016. We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 
days after publication of this final rescission notice.
    With respect to the remaining companies covered by the review, upon 
issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, and CBP 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by 
this review.\14\ The final results of this review shall be the basis 
for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise 
covered by the final results of this review.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \15\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with the Department's refinement of its assessment 
practice, if we continue to find in the final results that Fujian 
Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi He had no shipments of subject 
merchandise during the POR, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any 
suspended entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the 
intermediate companies involved in the transaction.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ For a full discussion of this clarification, see 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions for Fujian Roungshu, 
Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi He to CBP 15 days after publication of the 
final results of this review.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

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