Certain New Pneumatic Off-The-Road Tires From the People's 
Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review; 2015

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) preliminarily 
determines that countervailable subsidies are being provided to 
producers and exporters of new pneumatic off-the-road tires (OTR Tires) 
from the People's Republic of China (PRC). The period of review (POR) 
is January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2015. Interested parties are 
invited to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Applicable October 6, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Chien-Min Yang or Jack Zhao, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue

respectively.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are new pneumatic tires designed 
for off-the-road (OTR) and off-highway use. For a full description of 
the scope of this order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of Certain New Pneumatic

dated concurrently with this notice (Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum) and hereby adopted by this notice.

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

[[Page 46755]]

Methodology

    On September 4, 2008, the Department issued a countervailing duty 
order on new pneumatic tires designed for OTR and off-highway use.\2\ 
The Department is conducting this administrative review in accordance 
with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act). For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we 
preliminarily find that there is a subsidy, (i.e., a financial 
contribution from an authority that gives rise to a benefit to the 
recipient) and that the subsidy is specific.\3\ For a full description 
of the methodology underlying our preliminary conclusions, including 
our reliance, in part, on adverse facts otherwise available pursuant to 
sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, see the accompanying Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum. A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is provided at Appendix I to this notice.

    \2\ See Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires from the 
People's Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 73 FR 51627 
(September 4, 2008) (OTR CVD Order).
    \3\ See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding 
financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 B8024 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/. The signed Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Preliminary Results of Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the 
countervailable subsidy rates to be:

Xuzhou Xugong Tyres Co. Ltd.................................       91.94
Non-Selected Companies Under Review.........................       39.10
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    The statute and the Department's regulations do not directly 
address the establishment of rates to be applied to companies not 
selected for individual examination where the Department limits its 
examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(e)(2) 
of the Act. However, the Department normally determines the rates for 
non-selected companies in reviews in a manner that is consistent with 
section 705(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for 
calculating the all-others rate in an investigation. Section 
705(c)(5)(A)(i) of the Act instructs the Department as a general rule 
to calculate an all others rate using the weighted average of the 
subsidy rates established for the producers/exporters individually 
examined, excluding any zero, de minimis, or rates based entirely on 
facts available. In this review, the preliminary subsidy rates 
calculated for Guizhou Tyre and its cross-owned affiliates are above de 
minimis and are not based entirely on facts available. Therefore, for 
the companies for which a review was requested that were not selected 
as mandatory company respondents and which we are not finding to be 
cross-owned with the mandatory company respondents, we are 
preliminarily basing the subsidy rate on the subsidy rate calculated 
for Guizhou Tyre. For a list of these non-selected companies, please 
see Appendix II to this notice.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department will disclose to parties to this proceeding the 
calculations performed in reaching the preliminary results within five 
days of the date of publication of these preliminary results.\4\ 
Interested parties may submit written comments (case briefs) within 30 
days of publication of the preliminary results and rebuttal comments 
(rebuttal briefs) within five days after the time limit for filing case 
briefs.\5\ Rebuttal briefs must be limited to issues raised in the case 
briefs.\6\ Parties who submit case or rebuttal briefs are requested to 
submit with the argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief 
summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.\7\

Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, at a time and location 
to be determined.\9\ Parties should confirm by telephone the date,

    Unless the deadline is extended pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act, the Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of our analysis of the 
issues raised by the parties in their comments, within 120 days after 
publication of these preliminary results.

Assessment Rates and Cash Deposit Requirement

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
countervailing duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of review.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, the Department also 
intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated 
countervailing duties, in the amounts shown above for each of the 
respective companies shown above, on shipments of subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
date of publication of the final results of this review. For all non-
reviewed firms, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect cash 
deposits at the most-recent company-specific or all-others rate 
applicable to the company, as

[[Page 46756]]

appropriate. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.
    These preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(l) and 777(i)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213 and 351.221(b)(4).
