(HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience 
and customs purposes, the Department's written description of the 
merchandise under the order is dispositive.
    Also, included in the scope are blends of honey and rice syrup, 
regardless of the percentage of honey contained in the blend.
    Scope Rulings made between July 1, 2012, and September 30, 2012; 
Requestor: The American Honey Producers Association and the Sioux Honey 
Association; blends of honey and rice syrup, regardless of the

Methodology

    The Department is conducting these reviews in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1), 751(a)(2)(B)(iv), 751(a)(3), 771(i)(1) of the Act, 
and 19 CFR 351.213 and 351.214. 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).

Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Preliminary Rescission of New Shipper Review

    For the reasons detailed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, 
the Department preliminarily finds that we cannot determine whether 
Jiangsu Runchen made bona fide sale(s) to the United States. 
Consequently, the Department is preliminarily rescinding the new 
shipper review of Jiangsu Runchen for the period December 1, 2015, 
through November 30, 2016.

Preliminary Results of Administrative Review

    In making our findings, because Sunbeauty was unable to provide 
evidence of a suspended entry of subject merchandise into the United 
States during the POR and is, thus, ineligible to receive a separate 
rate, we are preliminarily treating Sunbeauty as part of the PRC-wide 
entity. For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
preliminary conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
    We preliminarily determine that the following antidumping duty 
margin exists:

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the final results of this new shipper review, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will determine, and the 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries. If we proceed to a final rescission

at the rate entered.\15\ If we do not proceed to a final rescission of 
the new shipper review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we will 
calculate importer-specific assessment rates. We will instruct CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered

    Upon issuance of the final results of this administrative review, 
the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess antidumping duties 
on all appropriate entries. We will instruct CBP to liquidate entries 
containing merchandise from the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate we 
determine in the final results of the review. If we do not continue to 
treat Sunbeauty as part of the PRC-wide entity, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), we will calculate importer-specific assessment rates. We 
will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review if any importer-specific assessment rate 
calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis.\17\ 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the publication of the final results or rescission of this new 
shipper review and the final results of this administrative review.

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 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 exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the 
final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de 
minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, no cash deposit rate will be 
required for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed 
PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate 
published for the most recently completed period; (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 PRC-wide 
rate of $2.63 per kilogram; and, (4) for all non-PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise which 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)(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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) in this administrative review 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 regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which 
is subject to sanction.
    The Department is issuing and publishing these results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(l) of the Act, and 19 
CFR 351.214 and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: June 29, 2017.
