SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on carbazole violet pigment 23 (CVP 23) from India. The period of review (POR) is December 1, 2015, through November 30, 2016. The review covers one producer/ exporter of the subject merchandise, Pidilite Industries Limited (Pidilite). The Department preliminarily finds that subject merchandise has been sold in the United States at prices below normal value (NV) during the POR. DATES: Applicable December 4, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Irene Gorelik or George Ayache, AD/ CVD Operations, Office VIII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\04DEN1.SGM 04DEN1 57206 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 231 / Monday, December 4, 2017 / Notices U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482–6905 or (202) 482–2623, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the Order 1 is CVP–23 identified as Color Index No. 51319 and Chemical Abstract No. 6358–30–1, with the chemical name of diindolo [3,2-b:3′,2′m] 2 triphenodioxazine, 8,18-dichloro-5, 15-diethy-5, 15-dihydro-, and molecular formula of C34 H22 Cl2 N4 O2. The subject merchandise includes the crude pigment in any form (e.g., dry powder, paste, wet cake) and finished pigment in the form of presscake and dry color. Pigment dispersions in any form (e.g., pigments dispersed in oleoresins, flammable solvents, water) are not included within the scope of the order. The merchandise subject to the Order is classifiable under subheading 3204.17.9040 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Methodology The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) and (a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.3 A list of the topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included as an appendix to this notice. 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 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 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. Adverse Facts Available Because mandatory respondent Pidilite has failed to provide requested information, and has failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability to comply with a request for information from the Department in this review, we preliminarily determine to apply facts otherwise available with an adverse inference (AFA) to this respondent, in accordance with sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.308. For further discussion, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Adjustment for Export Subsidies For Pidilite, in the original investigation, we subtracted the portion of the countervailing duty rate attributable to export subsidies (17.02 percent) from the final dumping margin of 66.59 percent in order to calculate the cash-deposit rate of 49.57 percent.4 Since the publication of the Antidumping Duty Order we have not conducted an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on CVP 23 from India.5 Therefore, the portion of the countervailing duty rate attributable to export subsidies currently in effect for Pidilite is 17.02 percent. Further, imports from Pidilite during the review period were subject to countervailing duties to offset export subsidies of 17.02 percent or more. Because the AFA rate we selected for this review is the margin we calculated for Pidilite in the investigation, we have adjusted the dumping margin to ensure that, in accordance with section 772(c)(1)(C) of the Act, we do not collect duties attributable to export subsidies twice. Preliminary Results of the Review We preliminarily determine that, for the period of December 1, 2015, through November 30, 2016, the following weighted-average dumping margin exists: Exporter/producer Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Rate adjusted for export subsidies (percent) Pidilite Industries Limited ......................................................................................................................................... 66.59 49.57 Disclosure and Public Comment sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Normally, the Department discloses to interested parties the calculations performed in connection with the preliminary results within five days of the date of publication of the notice of preliminary results in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

of the order is dispositive.

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) and (a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act). For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\3\ A list of the 
topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included as 
an appendix to this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a 
public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic

Decision Memorandum) dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by,

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

Adverse Facts Available

    Because mandatory respondent Pidilite has failed to provide 
requested information, and has failed to cooperate by not acting to the 
best of its ability to comply with a request for information from the 
Department in this review, we preliminarily determine to apply facts 
otherwise available with an adverse inference (AFA) to this respondent, 
in accordance with sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.308. For further discussion, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Adjustment for Export Subsidies

    For Pidilite, in the original investigation, we subtracted the 
portion of the countervailing duty rate attributable to export 
subsidies (17.02 percent) from the final dumping margin of 66.59 
percent in order to calculate the cash-deposit rate of 49.57 
percent.\4\ Since the publication of the Antidumping Duty Order we have 
not conducted an administrative review of the countervailing duty order 
on CVP 23 from India.\5\ Therefore, the portion of the countervailing 
duty rate attributable to export subsidies currently in effect for 
Pidilite is 17.02 percent. Further, imports from Pidilite during the 
review period were subject to countervailing duties to offset export 
subsidies of 17.02 percent or more. Because the AFA rate we selected 
for this review is the margin we calculated for Pidilite in the 
investigation, we have adjusted the dumping margin to ensure that, in 
accordance with section 772(c)(1)(C) of the Act, we do not collect 
duties attributable to export subsidies twice.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    We preliminarily determine that, for the period of December 1,

margin exists:

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\11\ 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.\12\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties 
at the adjusted rate of 49.57 percent if CBP has collected the 
appropriate countervailing duties on the same entry. We will instruct 
CBP to assess antidumping duties at the unadjusted rate of 66.59 
percent if the appropriate countervailing duties are not collected by 
CBP.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the 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 Pidilite will be 
the rate established in the final results of this review; (2) for 
previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this 
review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific 
rate published for the most recently-completed segment of this 
proceeding in which the company was reviewed; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-than-
fair value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently-
completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 27.48 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\13\ These cash deposit

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 prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    The 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 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: November 27, 2017.
Carole Showers,
Executive Director, Office of Policy performing the duties of the 
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
