SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Petitions On June 27, 2017, the Department of Commerce (the Department) received antidumping duty (AD) Petitions concerning imports of low melt polyester staple fiber (low melt PSF) from the Republic of Korea (Korea) and Taiwan, filed in proper form on behalf of Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, America (the petitioner).1 The petitioner is a domestic producer of low melt PSF.2 On June 30, 2017, the Department requested additional information and clarification of certain areas of the Petitions.3 The petitioner filed responses to these requests on July 6, 2017, and revised scope language on July 7, 2017.4 In accordance with section 732(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the petitioner alleges that imports of low melt PSF from Korea and Taiwan are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value within the meaning of section 731 of the Act, and that such imports are materially injuring, or threatening material injury to, the domestic industry producing low melt PSF in the United States. Also, consistent with section 732(b)(1) of the Act, the Petitions are accompanied by information reasonably available to the petitioner supporting its allegations. 1 See Letter to the from the petitioner, ‘‘Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan—Petition for the Imposition of Antidumping Duties’’ (June 27, 2017) (the Petitions). 2 See Volume I of the Petitions at 2. 3 See Letter from the Department, ‘‘Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping Duties on Imports of Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan: Supplemental Questions,’’ (General Issues Supplement) dated June 30, 2017; see also Letter from the Department, ‘‘Petition for the Imposition of Antidumping Duties on Imports of Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from Taiwan: Supplemental Questions’’ (Taiwan Supplement), dated June 30, 2017; see also Letter from the Department, ‘‘Petition for the Imposition of Antidumping Duties on Imports of Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea: Supplemental Questions’’ (Korea Supplement), dated June 30, 2017. 4 See Letter from the petitioner, ‘‘Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan—Petitioner’s Amendment to Volume II Relating to the Republic of Korea Antidumping Duties,’’ dated July 6, 2017 (Korea Supplemental Response); Letter from the petitioner, ‘‘Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan—Petitioner’s Amendment to Volume II Relating to Taiwan Antidumping Duties,’’ dated July 6, 2017 (Taiwan Supplemental Response); and Letter from the petitioner, ‘‘Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan—Petitioner’s Amendment to Volume I Relating to General Issues,’’ dated July 7, 2017 (General Issues Supplemental Response). PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34277 The Department finds that the petitioner filed these Petitions on behalf of the domestic industry, because the petitioner is an interested party as defined in section 771(9)(C) of the Act. The Department also finds that the petitioner demonstrated sufficient industry support with respect to the initiation of the AD investigations that the petitioner is requesting.5 Period of Investigation Because the Petitions were filed on June 27, 2017, the period of investigation (POI) for both investigations is April 1, 2016, through March 31, 2017, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1). Scope of the Investigations The product covered by these investigations is low melt PSF from Korea and Taiwan. For a full description of the scope of these investigations, see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigations,’’ in the Appendix to this notice. Comments on Scope of the Investigations During our review of the Petitions, the Department issued a questionnaire to, and received a response from, the petitioner pertaining to the proposed scope to ensure that the scope language in the Petitions would be an accurate reflection of the products for which the domestic industry is seeking relief.6 As part of this review, we determined that the scope language of these Petitions overlaps in certain respects with the scope language of the recentlyinitiated less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of fine denier polyester staple fiber (fine denier PSF) from Korea and Taiwan and the existing AD orders on polyester staple fiber (PSF) from Korea and Taiwan.7 Specifically, the scope of these Petitions covers all bicomponent polyester fiber, where one component melts at a lower temperature than the other component; the scope, as currently written, does not limit the two fiber components to any specific configuration. Further, the scopes of both the fine denier PSF LTFV investigations and the existing PSF AD 5 See the ‘‘Determination of Industry Support for the Petitions’’ section below. 6 See General Issues Supplement and General Issues Supplemental Response. 7 See Fine Denier Polyester Staple Fiber From the People’s Republic of China, India, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigations, 82 FR 29023, 29029 (June 27, 2017); and Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber From the Republic of Korea and Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber From the Republic of Korea and Taiwan, 65 FR 33807 (May 25, 2000).
