The petitioner is a domestic producer of PTFE resin.2 On October 2, 2017, and October 3, 2017, the Department requested supplemental information pertaining to certain areas of the Petitions.3 The 1 See Letter to the Secretary of Commerce re: ‘‘Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Resin from the People’s Republic of China and India: Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Petitions,’’ dated September 28, 2017 (the Petitions). 2 See the Petitions at 2. 3 See Letter from the Department, ‘‘Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties on Imports of Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin from India and the People’s Republic of China: Supplemental Questions,’’ dated October 2, 2017 (General Issues Questionnaire); see also Letter from the Department, ‘‘Petition for the Imposition of Antidumping Duties on Imports of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:29 Oct 25, 2017 Jkt 244001 petitioner filed responses to these requests on October 4, 2017, and October 5, 2017.4 In addition, the petitioner filed revised scope language on October 13, 2017.5 In accordance with section 732(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the petitioner alleges that imports of PTFE resin from India and the PRC 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 PTFE resin 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. The Department finds that the petitioner is an interested party as defined in section 771(9)(C) of the Act and that the petitioner filed these Petitions on behalf of the domestic industry and demonstrated sufficient industry support with respect to the initiation of the AD investigations that the petitioner is requesting.6 Periods of Investigation Because the Petitions were filed on September 28, 2017, the period of investigation (POI) for India is July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (NME) country, the POI for the PRC is January 1, 2017, through June 30, 2017.

Comments on Scope of the Investigations During our review of the Petitions, the petitioner submitted a revised 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.7 As discussed in the preamble to the Department’s regulations, we are setting aside a period for interested parties to raise issues regarding product coverage (scope).8 The Department will consider all comments received from interested parties and, if necessary, will consult with interested parties prior to the issuance of the preliminary determinations. If scope comments include factual information,9 all such factual information should be limited to public information. To facilitate preparation of its questionnaires, the Department requests all interested parties to submit such comments by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, which is 20 calendar days from the signature date of this notice. Any rebuttal comments, which may include factual information, must be filed by 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, November 17, 2017, which is 10 calendar days from the initial comments deadline.10 The Department requests that any factual information the parties consider relevant to the scope of the investigations be submitted during this time period. However, if a party subsequently finds that additional factual information pertaining to the scope of the investigations may be relevant, the party may contact the Department and request permission to submit the additional information.
