(collectively, the Domestic Interested Parties), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). The Domestic Interested Parties are manufacturers of a domestic like product in the United States and, accordingly, are domestic interested parties pursuant to section 771(9)(C) of the Act. On June 30, 2017, the Department received an adequate substantive response to the notice of initiation from Domestic Interested Parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department did not receive any timely filed responses from the respondent interested parties, i.e., butt-weld fitting producers and exporters from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines. On the basis of the notices of intent to participate and adequate substantive responses filed by the Domestic Interested Parties, and the inadequate response from any respondent interested party, the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Orders The product covered by the Orders is butt-weld fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines.3 1 See Antidumping Duty Orders: Stainless Steel Butt-Weld Pipe Fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines, 66 FR 11257 (February 23, 2001) (LTFV Orders). 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 82 FR 25599 (June 2, 2017) (Sunset Initiation). 3 For a full description of the scope of the orders, See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Orders on Stainless Steel Butt-Weld Pipe Fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (Decision Memorandum).

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Lodha and Marisa reported that they made no shipments of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR. To confirm Lodha's and 
Marisa's no shipment claims, the Department issued a no-shipment 
inquiry to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requesting that it 
review Lodha's and Marisa's no-shipment claims.\6\ CBP did not report 
that it had any information to contradict Lodha's and Marisa's claims 
of no shipments during the POR.

from India Produced and/or Exported by Lodha Offset and Marisa 
International (A-533-843), message number 6365302 (December 30, 
2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Given that Lodha and Marisa certified that they made no shipments 
of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, and there 
is no information calling their claims into question, we preliminarily 
determine that Lodha and Marisa did not have any reviewable 
transactions during the POR. Consistent with the Department's practice, 
we will not rescind the review with respect to Lodha and Marisa but, 
rather, will complete the review and issue instructions to CBP based on 
the final results.\7\

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Constructed 
export price or export price is calculated in accordance with section 
772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 
773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying 
our preliminary results, 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 https://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 
on the internet 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.

Calculation of Normal Value Based on Constructed Value (CV)

    SAB reported that it made no sales in the home market during the 
POR.\8\ Pursuant to 773(a)(1)(C)(i) of the Act, we examined SAB's third 
country sales and have determined that such sales do not constitute a 
viable comparison market (CM) within the meaning of section 
773(a)(1)(B)(ii)(II) of the Act.\9\ Therefore, for these preliminary 
results, we relied on CV as the basis for calculating NV, in accordance 
with sections 773(a)(4) and (e) of the Act.\10\

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily calculated a dumping 
margin of zero percent for both Navneet and SAB. We are applying to the 
non-selected companies the rates calculated for the mandatory 
respondents in these preliminary results, as referenced below.\11\

Assessment Rate

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review. If the weighted-average dumping margin for 
Navneet or SAB is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), 
we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty 
assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total entered value 
of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\12\ We 
will instruct CBP to

[[Page 46766]]

assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the 
final results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., 0.5 percent). 
Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero 
or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties. 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 where 
applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with the Department's ``automatic assessment'' 
practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
each respondent for which it 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.
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of 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 respondents 
noted above will be the rates established in the final results of this 
administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or 
exporters not covered in this administrative review but 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; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the 
producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the 
most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of 
the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers or exporters will continue to be 3.91 percent, the all-others 
rate established in the investigation as modified by the section 129 
determination.\13\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 and/or countervailing 
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 increase the subsequent assessment of the antidumping 
duties.
    These preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213(h) and 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: October 2, 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.
