AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This administrative review is being conducted in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Commerce published the notice of initiation of this administrative review on steel wire garment hangers from the People’s Republic of China (China) on December 7, 2017.1 On April 26, 2018,2 Commerce partially rescinded the review on 17 companies. Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the closure of the Federal Government from January 20 through 22, 2018. As a result, the revised deadline for the preliminary results of this administrative review is now July 6, 2018.3 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 57705 (December 7, 2017). 2 See Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People’s Republic of China; 2016–2017; Partial Rescission of the Ninth Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 83 FR 18276 (April 26, 2018). 3 See Memorandum for The Record from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, performing the nonexclusive functions and duties of the Assistant Antidumping Duty Order.

Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate is not subject to change, (i.e., 187.25 percent).7 Separate Rates Commerce preliminarily determines that information placed on the record by Shanghai Wells demonstrates that this entity is entitled to separate rate status.8 For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

For any individually examined respondent whose (estimated) ad valorem weightedaverage dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, Commerce will calculate importerspecific ad valorem assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).14 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. Where either the respondent’s ad valorem weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis,15 or an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted by companies individually examined during this review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the rate for the China-wide entity.16 Additionally, if Commerce 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 cash deposit rate) will be liquidated at the rate for the Chinawide entity.17 In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, 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 antidumping duties, where applicable. 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 China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 14 In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation method 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). 15 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 16 Id. 17 Id.

review on steel wire garment hangers from the People's Republic of 
China (China) on December 7, 2017.\1\ On April 26, 2018,\2\ Commerce 
partially rescinded the review on 17 companies. Commerce exercised its 
discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the closure of the Federal 
Government from January 20 through 22, 2018. As a result, the revised

entity applies to this administrative review.\6\ Under this policy, the 
China-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically 
requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because 
no party requested a review of the China-wide entity in this review,

found that Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd. and Hong Kong Wells Ltd. 
(collectively Shanghai Wells) are a single entity and, because there 
were no changes to the facts that supported that decision since that 
determination was made, we continue to find that these companies are 
part of a single entity for this administrative review. See Steel

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce will determine, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\13\ Commerce 
intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
publication date of the final results of this review. For any 
individually examined respondent whose (estimated) ad valorem weighted-
average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 
percent) in the final results of this review, Commerce will calculate 
importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates on the basis of the ratio 
of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined 
sales and the total entered value of those sales, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1).\14\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the 
importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate calculated in the final 
results of this review is not zero or de minimis. Where either the 
respondent's ad valorem weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de 
minimis,\15\ or an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero 
or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \14\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation method 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).
    \15\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted 
by companies individually examined during this review, Commerce will 
instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the rate for the China-wide 
entity.\16\ Additionally, if Commerce 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 cash deposit rate) will be liquidated at the rate for the 
China-wide entity.\17\

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, 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 antidumping 
duties, where applicable.

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 China entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section

[[Page 32636]]

751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For each specific company listed in the 
final results of this review, the cash deposit rate will be equal to 
the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of 
this review (except, if the ad valorem rate is de minimis, then the 
cash deposit rate will be zero); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that have 
received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific 
cash deposit rate published for the most recently completed period; (3) 
for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been 
found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate for the China-wide entity; and (4) for all non-Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the 
Chinese exporter that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These cash 
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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double 
antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This administrative review and notice 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: July 6, 2018.
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.
