AGENCY: Background On March 6, 2017, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from the PRC for the period March 1, 2016, through February 28, 2017.1 On March 31, 2017, the Department received a timely request, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), to conduct an administrative review of this antidumping duty order, with respect to three companies, from GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc. (GEO), a domestic producer of glycine. Based on this request and in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act, the Department published a notice of initiation of the review in the Federal Register on May 9, 2017.2 On July 28, 2017, GEO filed a timely withdrawal of its request for a review for each of the three companies.3 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 82 FR 12551 (March 6, 2017). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 21513 (May 9, 2017). 3 See Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review, dated July 28, 2017.

As noted above, GEO withdrew its request for review by the 90-day deadline. Accordingly, we are rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from the PRC covering the period March 1, 2016, through February 28, 2017. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a 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 doubled antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 751 of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: November 27, 2017.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments On February 1, 2017, UFlex reported that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.3 To confirm UFlex’s no shipment claim, the Department issued a no-shipment inquiry to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requesting that it review UFlex’s no shipment claim.4 CBP did not report that it had any information to contradict UFlex’s claim of no shipments during the POR. Given that UFlex certified that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR and there is no information calling its claim into question, we preliminarily determine that UFlex made no shipments during the POR.

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem 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).10 We will instruct CBP to 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. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importerspecific 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 and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. In accordance with the Department’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by JBF 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.11 In addition, if the Department determines that UFlex had no shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries 9 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation methodology 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). 11 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 10 In E:\FR\FM\01DEN1.SGM 01DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 230 / Friday, December 1, 2017 / Notices that entered under UFlex’s case number will be liquidated at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate companies involved in the transaction.12 Dated: November 27, 2017.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on lightweight thermal paper (LWTP) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). The period of review (POR) is November 1, 2015, through October 31, 2016. The review covers three exporters of subject merchandise: Shenzhen Formers Printing Co., Ltd. (Formers), Sailing International Limited (Sailing), and Suzhou Xiandai Paper Production Co (Xiandai). The Department preliminarily finds that Formers, Sailing, and Xiandai have not demonstrated eligibility for a separate rate in this segment of the proceeding, and therefore, for the preliminary results, we are treating Formers, Sailing, and Xiandai as part of the PRC-wide entity. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Applicable December 1, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56951 Background On January 13, 2017, the Department initiated the eighth administrative review of the antidumping duty order on LWTP from the PRC on three exporters: Formers, Sailing, and Xiandai.1 In the Initiation Notice, the Department stated that all firms identified in the notice that wished to qualify for separate rate status in the administrative review must complete either a separate rate application or certification, due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days after the publication of the notice, i.e., February 13, 2017.2 None of the respondents— Formers, Sailing, and Xiandai—timely submitted either a complete separate rate application or separate rate certification or a statement of ‘‘no shipments’’ during the POR. Nevertheless, per our practice, on March 16, 2017, the Department uploaded and released onto the administrative record of this proceeding an antidumping questionnaire to each exporter, Formers, Sailing, and Xiandai. However, due to an inadvertent oversight, the Department did not issue a physical copy of the questionnaire to any respondent, as is the Department’s practice when foreign firms are not represented by counsel in the United States or representatives thereof have not otherwise contacted the Department, and thus, the Department was unable to confirm whether parties received the questionnaire. Therefore, on July 28, 2017, the Department reissued the antidumping questionnaire to Formers, Sailing and Xiandai, served physical copies of the questionnaires on all the respondents in accordance with its standard practice, and extended the due date of the questionnaire response.3 On September 7, 2017, the Department requested a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data file of entries of subject merchandise associated with Sailing, Formers or Xiandai during the POR. On September 11, 2017, the Department received a response to its request indicating there were no suspended AD/CVD entries associated with Sailing, Formers or Xiandai during the POR.4 For a complete description of the events that followed the initiation of 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 4294 (January 13, 2017) (Initiation Notice). 2 Id. at 4295. 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Due Date to Respond to the Department’s Initial Questionnaire,’’ dated July 28, 2017. 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘U.S. Customs and Border Protection Import Data,’’ dated September 11, 2017.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On February 1, 2017, UFlex reported that it made no shipments of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.\3\ To confirm 
UFlex's no shipment claim, the Department issued a no-shipment inquiry 
to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requesting that it review 
UFlex's no shipment claim.\4\ CBP did not report that it had any 
information to contradict UFlex's claim of no shipments during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    Given that UFlex certified that it made no shipments of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR and there is no 
information calling its claim into question, we preliminarily determine 
that UFlex made no shipments during the POR. Consistent with the 
Department's practice, we will not rescind the review with respect to 
UFlex but, rather, will complete the review and issue instructions to 
CBP based on the final results.\5\

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).\10\ We will instruct CBP to 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. 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation methodology 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.
    In accordance with the Department's ``automatic assessment'' 
practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
JBF 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.\11\ In addition, if the 
Department determines that UFlex had no shipments of subject 
merchandise, any suspended entries

[[Page 56951]]

that entered under UFlex's case number will be liquidated at the all-
others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate companies involved 
in the transaction.\12\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of PET Film from the UAE entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the companies 
under review will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will 
be required); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-than-
fair-value investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 4.05 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the investigation.\13\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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.
    These preliminary results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.

    Dated: November 27, 2017.

Executive Director, Office of Policy, performing the duties of the 
Deputy Assistant Secretary, for Enforcement and Compliance.
