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 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of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For subject merchandise exported by the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 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 Chinawide 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.

Methodology

    For PT and Unicatch, Commerce has conducted this review in 
accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act). Normal value (NV) is calculated in accordance with section 
773 of the Act. Export price or constructed export price is calculated 
in accordance with section 772 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 
Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to 
registered users at http://access.trade.gov and is available to all 
parties in the Central Records Unit, Room B-8024 of the main Department 
of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly 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. A list of the topics discussed in 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as the Appendix to this 
notice.

Application of Facts Available and Adverse Facts Available

    Pursuant to section 776(a) and (b) of the Act, Commerce has 
preliminarily relied upon facts otherwise available with adverse 
inferences (AFA) for Bonuts because this respondent did not respond to 
Commerce's antidumping duty questionnaire, and thus failed to cooperate 
to the best of its ability in responding to Commerce's requests for 
information. For a complete explanation of the methodology and 
rationale underlying our preliminary application of AFA, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Partial Rescission of Review

    Commerce received timely requests to conduct an administrative 
review of certain exporters covering the POR. On December 8, 2017, Mid

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

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Unless otherwise extended, Commerce intends to issue the final 
results of this administrative review, including the results of its 
analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 
days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We intend to issue 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final 
results of this review.
    Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\15\ Where Commerce 
calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the total 
amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales 
quantity associated with those transactions, Commerce will direct CBP 
to assess importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rates based on 
the resulting per-unit rates.\16\ Where an importer- (or customer-) 
specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis (i.e., 
0.50 percent), Commerce will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate 
duties at the time of liquidation.\17\ Where an importer- (or customer-
) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, Commerce 
will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\18\

    \17\ Id.
    \18\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Bonuts, PT, or Unicatch, 
for which the producer 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.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the firms covered by this review, we intend to issue 
liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final 
results of this review. For the non-reviewed firms for which we are 
rescinding this administrative review, Commerce intends to instruct CBP 
15 days after publication of these preliminary results of review to 
assess antidumping duties at rates equal to the rates of cash deposits 
for estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, during the period May 20, 
2016, through June 30, 2017, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash 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 Bonuts, PT, and 
Unicatch will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is 
zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which 
case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for other manufacturers 
and exporters covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published 
for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which 
that manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not 
a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-
than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, then 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 2.24 percent, the all-others rate in 
the LTFV investigation.\20\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 80 FR 28959 (May 20, 2015).

Notifications

    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 review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: August 3, 2018.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
