For a full description of the methodology and rationale underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Rate for Non-Examined Companies The statute and the Department’s regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for examination when the Department limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, the Department looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for individual review in an administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ‘‘an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the basis of facts available}.’’ In this review, we calculated a weighted-average dumping margin for Unicatch that is not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely on the basis of facts available. Accordingly, the Department assigned Hor Liang Industrial Corp., and Romp Coil Nails Industries Inc. a margin of 34.20 percent, which is Unicatch’s calculated weighted-average dumping margin.

Consistent with the Department’s assessment practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Bonuts, PT, Unicatch, or the non-examined companies, for which the producer did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.14 For the firms covered by this review, we intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

order is dispositive.

Methodology

    For Unicatch, the Department has conducted this review in 
accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act). Normal value (NV) is calculated in accordance with section 
773(e) of the Act. Constructed export price or export price is 
calculated in accordance with section 773(a) 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 http://access.trade.gov and is available to all 
parties in the Central Records Unit, room B-8024 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/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the topics discussed in 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as the Appendix to this 
notice.

Application of Facts Available and Adverse Facts Available

    We preliminarily determine that PT and Bonuts failed to cooperate 
to the best of their ability in participating in the review, warranting 
the application of facts otherwise available with adverse inferences, 
pursuant to section 776(a)-(b) of the Act. For a full description of 
the methodology and rationale underlying our conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Examined Companies

    The statute and the Department's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for 
examination when the Department limits its examination in an 
administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. 
Generally, the Department looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which 
provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market 
economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for 
companies which were not selected for individual review in an 
administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-
others rate is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted average dumping margins established for 
exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero 
or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the 
basis of facts available{time} .'' In this review, we calculated a 
weighted-average dumping margin for Unicatch that is not zero, de 
minimis, or determined entirely on the basis of facts available. 
Accordingly, the Department assigned Hor Liang Industrial Corp., and 
Romp Coil Nails Industries Inc. a margin of 34.20 percent, which is 
Unicatch's calculated weighted-average dumping margin.

Partial Rescission of Review

    On December 12, 2016, Mid Continent Steel & Wire, Inc. (Mid 
Continent), a domestic producer and interested party, timely withdrew 
its review requests for

[[Page 36745]]

certain companies.\2\ 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 date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested 
review. For a full description of the methodology and rationale 
underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

    Unless otherwise extended, 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, not later than 
120 days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We intend to issue 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final 
results of this review.
    Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\10\ Where the 
Department calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the 
total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total 
sales quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will 
direct CBP to assess importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rates 
based on the resulting per-unit rates.\11\ Where an importer- (or 
customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de 
minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to 
collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.\12\ Where an 
importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero 
or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.\13\

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the methodology described in 
the ``Rates for Non-Examined Companies'' section, above.
    Consistent with the Department's assessment practice, for entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Bonuts, PT, Unicatch, 
or the non-examined companies, for which the producer did not know that 
its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is 
no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.\14\

Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the firms covered by this review, we intend to issue 
liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final 
results of this review. For the non-reviewed firms for which we are 
rescinding this administrative review, the Department intends to 
instruct CBP 15 days after publication of these preliminary results of 
review to assess antidumping duties at rates equal to the rates of cash 
deposits for estimated antidumping duties required at the time of 
entry, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, during the period 
May 20,

[[Page 36746]]

2015, through June 30, 2016, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Bonuts, PT, and 
Unicatch will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is 
zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which 
case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for other manufacturers 
and exporters covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published 
for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which 
that manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not 
a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-
than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, then the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 2.24 percent, the all-others rate in 
the LTFV investigation.\15\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notifications

    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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 31, 2017.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
