SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background Commerce 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 (China). The period of review (POR) is November 1, 2016, through October 31, 2017. Commerce 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. 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 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; 2016–2017,’’ dated concurrently with and 19 CFR 351.310. 19 CFR 351.310(c).

(Danyang Huachang) and Jiangsu Youhe Tool Manufacturer Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu Youhe), and treated them as part of the Chinawide entity, we preliminarily applied to non-selected respondents the separate rate assigned to eligible respondents in the last completed administrative review, which is 82.05 percent.7 China-Wide Entity Under Commerce’s current policy regarding the conditional review of the hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 2 See the February 9, 2018, no-shipment letter from Weihai Xiangguang Mechanical Industrial Co., Ltd., and the February 12, 2018, no-shipment letters from Danyang Hantronic Import & Export Co., Ltd., Danyang Tsunda Diamond Tools Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Huachang Tools Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Shanghai Starcraft Tools Company Limited, and Wuhan Wanbang Laser Diamond Tools Co., Ltd. 3 See the CBP message numbers 8129311– 8129313 dated May 9, 2018, and 8130301–8130303 dated May 10, 2018, available at http:// adcvd.cbp.dhs.gov/adcvdweb/. 4 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 3–4 for a detailed discussion. 5 See, e.g., Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results and Final Rescission, In Part, of Administrative Review and Final Results of New Shipper Review; 2013, 80 FR 34619 (June 17, 2015). 6 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 4–8, for more details. 7 Id. at 8.

Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People's Republic of 
China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 
2016-2017

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) preliminarily finds that 
certain companies covered by this administrative review made sales of 
subject merchandise at less than normal value.

DATES: Applicable August 10, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Yang Jin Chun or Joshua Poole, 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) 482-1293, 
respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Commerce 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 (China). The period of review (POR) 
is November 1, 2016, through October 31, 2017. Commerce 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.

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\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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; 2016-
2017,'' dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice 
(Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Six 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 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) report any 
contrary information.\3\ To date, we have not received any contrary 
information from either CBP in response to our inquiry or any other 
sources that 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\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See the February 9, 2018, no-shipment letter from Weihai

Limited, and Wuhan Wanbang Laser Diamond Tools Co., Ltd.

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

Separate Rates

    Commerce preliminarily determines that 14 respondents are eligible 
to receive separate rates in this review.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 4-8, for more 
details.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates for Eligible Non-Selected Respondents

    Because we denied the separate rate eligibility for the two 
respondents selected for individual examination, Danyang Huachang 
Diamond Tools Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Danyang Huachang) and Jiangsu 
Youhe Tool Manufacturer Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu Youhe), and treated them as 
part of the China-wide entity, we preliminarily applied to non-selected 
respondents the separate rate assigned to eligible respondents in the 
last completed administrative review, which is 82.05 percent.\7\

China-Wide Entity

    Under Commerce's current policy regarding the conditional review of 
the

[[Page 39674]]

China-wide entity,\8\ 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, the entity is not under review and the 
entity's rate is not subject to change (i.e., 82.05 percent).\9\ Aside 
from the no-shipments and separate rate companies discussed above, 
Commerce considers all other companies for which a review was requested 
(which did not file a separate rate application) to be part of the 
China-wide entity.\10\

Id. at 6, 9.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For 
Danyang Huachang and Jiangsu Youhe, we denied the separate rate 
eligibility and treated them as part of the China-wide entity.

conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically

[[Page 39675]]

all appropriate entries covered by this review.\15\ 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 non-
selected respondents eligible for a separate rate. 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 rate) will be 
liquidated at the China-wide rate.\16\ Commerce intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after

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 Chinese and non-Chinese 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 Chinese 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 China-wide entity; and (4) for all non-Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese 
exporter that supplied that non-Chinese 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 Commerce'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: August 6, 2018.
