SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain tissue paper products (tissue paper) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for the period of review (POR) March 1, 2016, through February 28, 2017. We preliminarily determine that mandatory respondent Global Key, Inc. (Global Key) is not eligible for a separate rate and, therefore, remains part of the PRC-wide entity. We also preliminarily determine that mandatory respondent Chung Rhy Special Paper Mill Co., Ltd. (Chung Rhy) had no shipments during the POR. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping (AD) duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Applicable November 21, 2017.

A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.1 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Based on Chung Rhy’s timely submitted certification 2 and information from CBP,3 we preliminarily determine that Chung Rhy had no exports, sales, shipments, or entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. In addition, the Department finds that, consistent with its assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, it is appropriate not to rescind the review in part in these circumstances, but to complete the review with respect to Chung Rhy and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.4 For additional information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Because Global Key did not respond to our AD questionnaire, we preliminarily determine that Global Key has not demonstrated its eligibility for a separate rate, and accordingly, we are preliminarily treating Global Key as part of the PRC-wide entity.

Certain Tissue Paper Products From the People's Republic of 
China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2016-2017

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain tissue 
paper products (tissue paper) from the People's Republic of China (PRC) 
for the period of review (POR) March 1, 2016, through February 28, 
2017. We preliminarily determine that mandatory respondent Global Key, 
Inc. (Global Key) is not eligible for a separate rate and, therefore, 
remains part of the PRC-wide entity. We also preliminarily determine 
that mandatory respondent Chung Rhy Special Paper Mill Co., Ltd. (Chung 
Rhy) had no shipments during the POR. If these preliminary results are 
adopted in the final results, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping (AD) duties on all 
appropriate entries of subject merchandise. Interested parties are 
invited to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Applicable November 21, 2017.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on Chung Rhy's timely submitted certification \2\ and 
information from CBP,\3\ we preliminarily determine that Chung Rhy had 
no exports, sales, shipments, or entries of subject merchandise to the 
United States during the POR. In addition, the Department finds that, 
consistent with its assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) 
cases, it is appropriate not to rescind the review in part in these 
circumstances, but to complete the review with respect to Chung Rhy and 
issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review.\4\ For additional information regarding this determination, see

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act). Because Global Key did not respond to our AD 
questionnaire, we preliminarily determine that Global Key has not 
demonstrated its eligibility for a separate rate, and accordingly, we 
are preliminarily treating Global Key as part of the PRC-wide entity.
    The Department's policy regarding conditional review of the PRC-
wide entity applies to this administrative review.\5\ Under this 
policy, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a party 
specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of 
the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity 
in this review, the entity is not under review, and the entity's 
current rate, i.e., 112.64 percent,\6\ is not subject to change.

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, limited to issues raised in the case and rebuttal 
briefs, must submit a written request to the Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, within 30 days after the date of 
publication of this notice. Requests should contain: (1) The party's 
name, address, and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; 
and (3) a list of the issues to be discussed. If a request for a 
hearing is made, the Department intends to hold the hearing at the U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 
20230, at a time and date to be determined. Parties should confirm by 
telephone the date, time, and location of the hearing two days before 
the scheduled date.
    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, which will include the results of our analysis 
of the issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of publication 
of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, AD duties on all appropriate entries covered by 
this review.\8\ The Department intends to issue assessment instructions 
to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this 
review. If the Department continues to find Global Key as part of the 
PRC-wide entity in the final results, the Department will instruct CBP 
to liquidate POR entries of subject merchandise from this company at 
the PRC-wide rate of 112.64 percent. Moreover, if the Department 
continues to make a no-shipment finding for Chung Rhy in the final 
results, any suspended entries of subject merchandise from Chung Rhy 
will also be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\9\

administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the 
PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: 
(1) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters 
not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of 
this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing 
exporter-specific rate; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, 
the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity, 112.64 per 
cent; and (3) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which 
have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the 
rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non-PRC 
exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    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 Department'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 and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: November 15, 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.
