Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is diamond sawblades and parts thereof. The diamond sawblades subject to the order are currently classifiable under subheadings 8202 to 8206 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), and may also enter under 6804.21.00. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description is dispositive. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.1 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Ten companies that received a separate rate in previous segments of the proceeding and are subject to this review reported that they did not have any exports of subject merchandise during the POR.2 We requested that CBP report any information contrary to these claims of no shipments.3 To date, we have not received any contrary information from either CBP in response to our inquiry or any other sources that nine of these companies had any shipments of the subject merchandise sold to the United States during the 1 See the Memorandum, ‘‘Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2015–2016,’’ dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 2 See the February 6, 2017, no-shipment letters from Danyang City Ou Di Ma Tools Co., Ltd., Danyang Like Tools Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Huachang Tools Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Orient Gain International Limited, Qingdao Hyosung Diamond Tools Co., Ltd., and Sino Tools Co., Ltd., the February 7, 2017, no-shipment letter from Qingdao Shinhan Diamond Industrial Co., Ltd., the February 10, 2017, no-shipment letters from Danyang Tsunda Diamond Tools Co., Ltd., and Jiangsu Inter-China Group Corporation, and the February 21, 2017, no-shipment letter from Danyang Hantronic Import & Export Co., Ltd. 3 See CBP message numbers 7167307–7167315 and 7167318 dated June 16, 2017, available at http://adcvd.cbp.dhs.gov/adcvdweb/.

Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People's Republic of 
China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 
2015-2016

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on diamond 
sawblades and parts thereof (diamond sawblades) from the People's 
Republic of China (the PRC). The period of review (POR) is November 1, 
2015, through October 31, 2016. The Department has preliminarily 
determined that certain companies covered by this review made sales of 
subject merchandise at less than normal value. Interested parties are 
invited to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Applicable December 6, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Yang Jin Chun or Bryan Hansen, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office I, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue 
NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-5760 and (202) 482-
3683, respectively.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is diamond sawblades and parts 
thereof. The diamond sawblades subject to the order are currently 
classifiable under subheadings 8202 to 8206 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), and may also enter under 
6804.21.00. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience 
and customs purposes, the written description is dispositive. A full 
description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.\1\

Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2015-

(Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Ten companies that received a separate rate in previous segments of 
the proceeding and are subject to this review reported that they did 
not have any exports of subject merchandise during the POR.\2\ We 
requested that CBP report any information contrary to these claims of 
no shipments.\3\ To date, we have not received any contrary information 
from either CBP in response to our inquiry or any other sources that 
nine of these companies had any shipments of the subject merchandise 
sold to the United States during the POR.\4\ Further, consistent with 
our practice, we find that it is not appropriate to rescind the review 
with respect to these companies but, rather, to complete the review and 
issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of 
review.\5\

Separate Rates for Eligible Non-Selected Respondents

    In accordance with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal

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

PRC-Wide Entity

    The Department's change in policy regarding conditional review of 
the PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.\11\ 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 
rate is

[[Page 57586]]

not subject to change (i.e., 82.05 percent).\12\ Aside from the no-
shipments and separate rate companies discussed above, the Department 
considers all other companies for which a review was requested (which 
did not file a separate rate application) to be part of the PRC-wide 
entity.\13\

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

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy within 
the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value was calculated 
in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For Chengdu Huifeng 
Diamond Tools Co., Ltd., and the Jiangsu Fengtai Single Entity, we 
assigned each a margin based on adverse facts available (AFA) pursuant 
to section 776(b) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, 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

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of review, the Department will 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review.\19\ If the preliminary results are 
unchanged for the final results, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad 
valorem assessment rate of 82.05 percent to all entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR which were exported by the aforementioned 
companies. If the Department determines that an exporter under review 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\20\ The Department 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 
days after publication of the final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this 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 subject 
merchandise exported by the companies listed above that have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final 
results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero 
cash deposit will be required); (2) 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; (3) 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; and (4) 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 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled 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 30, 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.
