SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On April 2, 2018, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on R–134A from China.1 On April 27, and April 30, 2018, Commerce received timely requests for review from two producers and/or exporters of the subject merchandise: T.T. International Co., Ltd. (TTI) and Zhejiang Sanmei Chemical Ind. Co., Ltd. (also known as Zhejiang Sanmei Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. or ‘‘Zhejiang Sanmei’’) (Sanmei).2 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 83 FR 13949 (April 2, 2018). 2 See the letter from TTI, ‘‘1,1,1,3Tetrafluoroethane (R–134A) from the People’s Republic of China: Request for Antidumping Duty VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:49 Sep 10, 2018 Jkt 244001 Based on these requests, on June 6, 2018, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review covering the October 7, 2016, through March 31, 2018 POR, with respect to TTI and Sanmei.3 On August 7 and 21, 2018, TTI and Sanmei, respectively, timely withdrew their requests for an antidumping duty administrative review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).4 No other party requested a review of this order. Rescission Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. TTI and Sanmei both timely withdrew their requests for an administrative review within the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of this order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of antidumping duty order on R–134A from China covering the period October 7, 2016 through March 31, 2018, in its entirety. Assessment Because Commerce is rescinding this administrative review in its entirety, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of R–134A from China. The entries to which this administrative review pertains shall be assessed antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposits of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 16, 2017, Commerce published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on nails from China 1 for the POR, August 1, 2016, through July 31, 2017.2 Commerce initiated a review with respect to 145 companies.3 Pursuant to section 777A(c)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce selected three mandatory respondents, The Stanley Works (Langfang) Fastening Systems Co., Ltd. and Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (collectively, Stanley), Dezhou Hualude Hardware Products Co. Ltd. (Dezhou Hualude), and Shandong Dinglong Import & Export Co., Ltd.

For additional information regarding this determination, including a list of these companies, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Consistent with our assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) administrative reviews, Commerce is not rescinding this review for these companies, but intends to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.9 Separate Rates Commerce preliminarily determined that information placed on the record by the three mandatory respondents, as well as by the 19 other separate rate applicants, demonstrates that these companies are entitled to separate rate status. See Preliminary Results of Review section below. For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. China-Wide Entity Commerce’s policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide entity applies to this administrative review.10 Under this policy, the Chinawide 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 weighted-average dumping 7 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the 2016–2017 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 8 Although Shanxi Yuci Broad Wire Products Co., Ltd. and Certified Products International Inc. each submitted a no shipments letter, they are not among the 145 companies initiated on in this review, and therefore are not subject to this review. Therefore, we only evaluated the no shipment claims of the nine companies that submitted no shipments letters and for which this review was initiated. 9 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694–95 (October 24, 2011) and the ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section, below. 10 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013) (Sampling Methodology Notice).

For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum; see also Appendix I for a list of companies considered as part of the China-wide entity. Sample Rate Calculation In the Sampling Methodology Notice, we stated that, in order to calculate a rate to assign the non-selected companies when using a sampling procedure, Commerce will calculate a ‘‘sample rate’’ based upon an average of the rates for the selected respondents, weighted by the import share of their corresponding strata.13 The respondents selected for individual examination through the sampling process will receive their own rates; all companies in the sample population who were not selected for individual examination will receive the sample rate.14 Accordingly, we have calculated the sample rate by averaging the rates for the three selected respondents, weighted by the import share of their corresponding strata.15 The non-selected companies entitled to a separate rate have been assigned the sample rate. For additional information and a discussion of the issues examined with regard to the calculation of the sample rate, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act. Constructed export prices and export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because China is an NME country within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On October 16, 2017, Commerce published in the Federal Register the 
notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on nails from China \1\ for the POR, August 1, 2016, through 
July 31, 2017.\2\ Commerce initiated a review with respect to 145 
companies.\3\ Pursuant to section 777A(c)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce selected three mandatory 
respondents, The Stanley Works (Langfang) Fastening Systems Co., Ltd. 
and Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (collectively, Stanley), Dezhou 
Hualude Hardware Products Co. Ltd. (Dezhou Hualude), and Shandong 
Dinglong Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Shandong Dinglong).\4\ On April 30, 
2018, Commerce extended the deadline for issuing the preliminary 
results by 90 days.\5\ On August 1, 2018, Commerce fully extended the 
deadline for issuing the preliminary results to September 4, 2018.\6\

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this review are nails from China. For a 
full description of the scope, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, 
dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary 
Results of the 2016-2017 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: 
Certain Steel Nails from the People's Republic of China,'' dated 
concurrently with this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on the no-shipments letters filed by nine companies,\8\ 
Commerce preliminarily determined that these companies had no shipments 
during the POR. For additional information regarding this 
determination, including a list of these companies, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum. Consistent with our assessment practice in non-
market economy (NME) administrative reviews, Commerce is not rescinding 
this review for these companies, but intends to complete the review and 
issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ Although Shanxi Yuci Broad Wire Products Co., Ltd. and 
Certified Products International Inc. each submitted a no shipments 
letter, they are not among the 145 companies initiated on in this 
review, and therefore are not subject to this review. Therefore, we 
only evaluated the no shipment claims of the nine companies that 
submitted no shipments letters and for which this review was 
initiated.
    \9\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011) and 
the ``Assessment Rates'' section, below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    Commerce preliminarily determined that information placed on the 
record by the three mandatory respondents, as well as by the 19 other 
separate rate applicants, demonstrates that these companies are 
entitled to separate rate status. See Preliminary Results of Review 
section below. For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

China-Wide Entity

    Commerce's policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide 
entity applies to this administrative review.\10\ 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, the entity is not under review and the weighted-average 
dumping margin determined for the China-wide entity is not subject to 
change (i.e., 118.04 percent) as a result of this review.\11\ Aside 
from the companies discussed above, Commerce considers all other 
companies for which a review was requested \12\ to be part of the 
China-wide entity. For additional information, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum; see also Appendix I for a list of companies 
considered as part of the China-wide entity.

Memorandum.
    \12\ See Appendix I.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sample Rate Calculation

    In the Sampling Methodology Notice, we stated that, in order to 
calculate a rate to assign the non-selected companies when using a 
sampling procedure, Commerce will calculate a ``sample rate'' based 
upon an average of the rates for the selected respondents, weighted by 
the import share of their corresponding strata.\13\ The respondents 
selected for individual examination through the sampling process will 
receive their own rates; all companies in the sample population who 
were not selected for individual examination will receive the sample 
rate.\14\ Accordingly, we have calculated the sample rate by averaging 
the rates for the three selected respondents, weighted by the import 
share of their corresponding strata.\15\ The non-selected companies 
entitled to a separate rate have been assigned the sample rate. For 
additional information and a discussion of the issues examined with 
regard to the calculation of the sample rate, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.

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

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act. Constructed export prices and 
export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of 
the Act. Because China is an NME country within the meaning of section 
771(18) of the Act, NV has been calculated in accordance with section 
773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary

Disclosure

    Commerce intends to disclose to interested parties the calculations 
performed in connection with these preliminary results within five days 
of its public announcement or, if there is no public announcement, 
within five days of the date of publication of this notice in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Public Comment

    Case briefs or other written comments may be submitted to the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance no later than 30 
days after the date of publication of these preliminary results, unless 
the Secretary alters the time limit. Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues 
raised in case briefs, may be submitted no later than five days after 
the deadline date for case briefs.\16\ Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) 
and (d)(2), parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this 
administrative review are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) 
A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and (3) 
a table of authorities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.309; see also 19 CFR 351.303 (for general 
filing requirements).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, limited to issues raised in the case and rebuttal 
briefs, must submit a written request to the Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce, within 30 days 
after the date of publication of this notice. Requests should contain 
the party's name, address, and telephone number, the number of 
participants, whether any participant is a foreign national, and a list 
of the issues to be discussed. If a request for a hearing is made, 
Commerce intends to hold the hearing at the U.S. Department of 
Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230, at a time 
and date to be determined. Parties should confirm by telephone the 
date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled 
date.
    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, which will include the results of our analysis of all issues 
raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of publication of these 
preliminary results in the Federal Register, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, unless extended.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce will determine, and 
CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered 
by this review.\17\ Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions 
to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this 
review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For any individually examined respondent whose 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 assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount 
of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total 
entered value of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 
Where an importer-specific ad valorem rate is not zero or de minimis, 
Commerce will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the 
time of liquidation.\18\ Where either a respondent's weighted-average

[[Page 45886]]

dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific ad 
valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis, Commerce will instruct 
CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \19\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this 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 
sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above 
that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of 
this review (except, if the rate is de minimis, then cash deposit rate 
will be zero); (2) for previously examined China and non-China 
exporters not listed above that at the time of entry are eligible for a 
separate rate based on a prior completed segment of this proceeding, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-
specific cash deposit rate; (3) for all China exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate 
at the time of entry, the cash deposit rate will be that for the China-
wide entity (i.e., 118.04 percent); and (4) for all non-China exporters 
of subject merchandise which at the time of entry are not eligible for 
a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to 
the China exporter that supplied that non-China exporter. These 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 the 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 preliminary determination is issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: September 4, 2018.
