Hydrofluorocarbon Blends From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final Determination of No Shipments; 2016-2017, 17380-17382 [2019-08348]

Download as PDF 17380 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 80 / Thursday, April 25, 2019 / Notices Postponement of Preliminary Determinations Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD investigation within 65 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1) of the Act permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation if: (A) The petitioner 2 makes a timely request for a postponement; or (B) Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that additional time is necessary to make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On March 29, 2019, the petitioner submitted timely requests that Commerce postpone the preliminary CVD determinations.3 The petitioner stated that additional time is necessary to allow Commerce to select mandatory respondents and issue questionnaires, as well as to allow Commerce and the petitioner to review questionnaire responses and identify deficiencies; additional time will also permit Commerce to issue and receive supplemental questionnaires prior to the preliminary determinations.4 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner has stated the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determinations, and Commerce finds no compelling reason to deny the requests. Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, Commerce is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determinations to no later than 130 days after the date on which these investigations were initiated, i.e., July 22, 2019.5 Pursuant to section 705(a)(1) petitioner is Vulcan Threaded Products Inc. Letters from the petitioner, ‘‘Carbon and Alloy Steel Threaded Rod from India: Request to Extend Preliminary Determination Deadline,’’ dated March 29, 2019, and ‘‘Carbon and Alloy Steel Threaded Rod from China: Request to Extend Preliminary Determination Deadline,’’ dated March 29, 2019. 4 Id. 5 The actual deadline is July 21, 2019, which is a Sunday. In accordance with Commerce’s practice, where a deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the appropriate deadline is the next of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations of these investigations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determinations. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1). Dated: April 19, 2019. Jeffrey I. Kessler, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain revisions to the margin calculations for TTI,6 and to the rate assigned to the non-examined respondents receiving a separate rate.7 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Separate Rates Respondents In the Preliminary Results, we determined that TTI and three other companies demonstrated their eligibility for separate rates. We received no comments since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provide a basis for reconsideration of these determinations.8 Therefore, for these final results, we continue to find that the companies listed in the table in the ‘‘Final Results’’ section of this notice are eligible for separate rates. Further, we determined in the Preliminary Results that six companies failed to demonstrate an absence of de facto government control; and, thus, Commerce did not grant them separate rates.9 No party provided comments with respect to any of these six companies, and, thus, we continue to 6 See Memorandum ‘‘Calculation Memorandum for the Final Results of the Administrative Review of Hydrofluorocarbon Blends from the People’s Republic of China Memo for TTI International Co., Ltd.,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. 7 See Issues and Decision Memorandum for a summary of these revisions. 8 We note, however, that we made a ministerial error when identifying the name of one of these companies in the Preliminary Results. For further discussion, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. 9 These companies are: (1) Arkema Daikin Advanced Fluorochemicals (Changsu) Co., Ltd. (Arkema); (2) Dongyang Weihua Refrigerants Co., Ltd. (Dongyang Weihua); (3) Sinochem Environmental Protection Chemicals (Taicang) Co., Ltd. (Sinochem Taicang); (4) Weitron International Refrigeration Equipment (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. (Weitron); (5) Zhejiang Lantian Environmental Protection Fluoro Material Co. Ltd. (Zhejiang Lantian); and (6) Zhejiang Quzhou Lianzhou Refrigerants Co., Ltd. (Zhejiang Quzhou). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:25 Apr 24, 2019 Jkt 247001 find that these six companies are not eligible for separate rates. Rate for Non-Examined Separate-Rate Respondents The statute and our regulations do not address the rate to be assigned to respondents not selected for individual examination when we limit our examination of companies subject to the administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2)(B) of the Act. Generally, we look to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for respondents not individually examined in an administrative review. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act articulates a preference for not calculating an allothers rate using rates which are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.10 Accordingly, we generally will determine the dumping margin for companies not individually examined by averaging the weighted-average dumping margins for the individually examined respondents, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.11 For the final results, we calculated a rate only for TTI. Therefore, for these final results, following the practice described above, we have assigned the rate calculated for TTI to the companies that have not been individually examined but have demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Daikin Fluorochemicals (China) Co., Ltd. (Daikin) and Zhejiang Yonghe Refrigerant Co., Ltd. (Zhejiang Yonghe) 12 had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. As we have not received any information to contradict our preliminary findings, we determine that Daikin and Zhejiang 10 See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews and Rescission of Reviews in Part, 73 FR 52823, 52824 (September 11, 2008), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 16. 11 See, e.g., Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Partial Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from the People’s Republic of China, 71 FR 77373, 77377 (December 26, 2006), unchanged in Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Partial Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 19690 (April 19, 2007). 12 In the Preliminary Results, Commerce inadvertently identified this company as Jinhua Yonghe Fluorochemical Co., Ltd.

PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17381 Yonghe had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, and we intend to issue appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that are consistent with our ‘‘automatic assessment’’ clarification for these final results of review. Final Results of the Administrative Review Because Arkema, Dongyang Weihua, Sinochem Taicang, Weitron, Zhejiang Lantian, and Zhejiang Quzhou did not demonstrate that they are entitled to a separate rate, Commerce finds these six companies to be part of the China-wide entity. Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, and Commerce no longer considers the China-wide entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews,13 we did not conduct a review of the China-wide entity. The rate previously established for the Chinawide entity is 216.37 percent 14 and is not subject to change as a result of this review. For companies subject to this review and established their eligibility for a separate rate, Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period February 1, 2016, through July 31, 2017: Exporter T.T. International Co., Ltd .......... Shandong Huaan New Material Co., Ltd * ................................. Zhejiang Sanmei Chemical Industry Co. Ltd * ....................... Jinhua Yonghe Fluorochemical Co., Ltd * ................................. Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 285.73 285.73 285.73 285.73 * This company was not selected as a mandatory respondent but is subject to this administrative review and demonstrated that it qualified for a separate rate during the POR. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 13 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity (NME) in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963, 65970 (November 4, 2013). 14 See Hydrofluorocarbon Blends and Components Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order, 81 FR 55436, 55438 (August 19, 2016).

For TTI, we calculated importerspecific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on 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- (or customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.15 Pursuant to Commerce’s assessment practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted by TTI, we will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the China-wide rate.16 Similarly, because Commerce determined that Daikin and Zhejiang Yonghe had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries of subject merchandise from Daikin and Zhejiang Yonghe will also be liquidated at the China-wide rate.17 For the respondents which were not selected for individual examination in this administrative review and which qualified for a separate rate, the assessment rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin determined for TTI in the final results of this administrative review. For the companies found to be part of the China-wide entity, because Commerce determined that these companies did not qualify for a separate rate, we will instruct CBP to assess dumping duties on the companies’ entries of subject merchandise at the rate of 216.37 percent. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weightedaverage dumping margin established in the final results of this review; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed China and non-China exporters not listed above that currently have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recently 15 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 16 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 17 Id.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain 
revisions to the margin calculations for TTI,\6\ and to the rate 
assigned to the non-examined respondents receiving a separate rate.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Memorandum ``Calculation Memorandum for the Final 
Results of the Administrative Review of Hydrofluorocarbon Blends 
from the People's Republic of China Memo for TTI International Co., 
Ltd.,'' dated concurrently with this notice.
    \7\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum for a summary of these 
revisions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates Respondents

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that TTI and three other 
companies demonstrated their eligibility for separate rates. We 
received no comments since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that 
provide a basis for reconsideration of these determinations.\8\ 
Therefore, for these final results, we continue to find that the 
companies listed in the table in the ``Final Results'' section of this 
notice are eligible for separate rates.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ We note, however, that we made a ministerial error when 
identifying the name of one of these companies in the Preliminary 
Results. For further discussion, see the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum at Comment 1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Further, we determined in the Preliminary Results that six 
companies failed to demonstrate an absence of de facto government 
control; and, thus, Commerce did not grant them separate rates.\9\ No 
party provided comments with respect to any of these six companies, 
and, thus, we continue to find that these six companies are not 
eligible for separate rates.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ These companies are: (1) Arkema Daikin Advanced 
Fluorochemicals (Changsu) Co., Ltd. (Arkema); (2) Dongyang Weihua 
Refrigerants Co., Ltd. (Dongyang Weihua); (3) Sinochem Environmental 
Protection Chemicals (Taicang) Co., Ltd. (Sinochem Taicang); (4) 
Weitron International Refrigeration Equipment (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. 
(Weitron); (5) Zhejiang Lantian Environmental Protection Fluoro 
Material Co. Ltd. (Zhejiang Lantian); and (6) Zhejiang Quzhou 
Lianzhou Refrigerants Co., Ltd. (Zhejiang Quzhou).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rate for Non-Examined Separate-Rate Respondents

    The statute and our regulations do not address the rate to be 
assigned to respondents not selected for individual examination when we 
limit our examination of companies subject to the administrative review 
pursuant to section 777A(c)(2)(B) of the Act. Generally, we look to 
section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for 
calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when 
calculating the rate for respondents not individually examined in an 
administrative review. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act articulates a 
preference for not calculating an all-others rate using rates which are 
zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.\10\ 
Accordingly, we generally will determine the dumping margin for 
companies not individually examined by averaging the weighted-average 
dumping margins for the individually examined respondents, excluding 
rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts 
available.\11\

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

    For the final results, we calculated a rate only for TTI. 
Therefore, for these final results, following the practice described 
above, we have assigned the rate calculated for TTI to the companies 
that have not been individually examined but have demonstrated their 
eligibility for a separate rate.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Daikin 
Fluorochemicals (China) Co., Ltd. (Daikin) and Zhejiang Yonghe 
Refrigerant Co., Ltd. (Zhejiang Yonghe) \12\ had no shipments of 
subject merchandise during the POR. As we have not received any 
information to contradict our preliminary findings, we determine that 
Daikin and Zhejiang Yonghe had no shipments of subject merchandise 
during the POR, and we intend to issue appropriate instructions to U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that are consistent with our 
``automatic assessment'' clarification for these final results of 
review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ In the Preliminary Results, Commerce inadvertently 
identified this company as Jinhua Yonghe Fluorochemical Co., Ltd.

Comment 1.

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    Because Arkema, Dongyang Weihua, Sinochem Taicang, Weitron, 
Zhejiang Lantian, and Zhejiang Quzhou did not demonstrate that they are 
entitled to a separate rate, Commerce finds these six companies to be 
part of the China-wide entity. Because no party requested a review of 
the China-wide entity, and Commerce no longer considers the China-wide 
entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative 
reviews,\13\ we did not conduct a review of the China-wide entity. The 
rate previously established for the China-wide entity is 216.37 percent 
\14\ and is not subject to change as a result of this review.

    For companies subject to this review and established their 
eligibility for a separate rate, Commerce determines that the following 
weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period February 1, 2016, 
through July 31, 2017:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Weighted-

                                                               (percent)

Zhejiang Sanmei Chemical Industry Co. Ltd *.................      285.73
Jinhua Yonghe Fluorochemical Co., Ltd *.....................      285.73
------------------------------------------------------------------------
* This company was not selected as a mandatory respondent but is subject
  to this administrative review and demonstrated that it qualified for a
  separate rate during the POR.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days

[[Page 17382]]

after the date of publication of these final results of review.
    For TTI, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment 
rates based on 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- (or 
customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to Commerce's assessment practice, for entries that were 
not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted by TTI, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the China-wide rate.\16\ Similarly, 
because Commerce determined that Daikin and Zhejiang Yonghe had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries of subject 
merchandise from Daikin and Zhejiang Yonghe will also be liquidated at 
the China-wide rate.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
    \17\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the respondents which were not selected for individual 
examination in this administrative review and which qualified for a 
separate rate, the assessment rate will be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin determined for TTI in the final results of this 
administrative review.
    For the companies found to be part of the China-wide entity, 
because Commerce determined that these companies did not qualify for a 
separate rate, we will instruct CBP to assess dumping duties on the 
companies' entries of subject merchandise at the rate of 216.37 
percent.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin established in the final results of this review; 
(2) for previously investigated or reviewed China and non-China 
exporters not listed above that currently have a separate rate, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate 
published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding 
where the exporter received that separate rate; (3) for all China 
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, 216.37 percent; and (4) for all non-China 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
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.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days of the date of publication of this notice, 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Notifications to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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.

Notifications to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return or destruction of APO materials, or conversion 
to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply 
with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results of review in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: April 19, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
