Assessment Rates Upon completion of the final results, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce will determine, and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If Infang’s weightedaverage dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this new shipper review, Commerce intends to calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer’s examined sales and, where possible, the total entered value of sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.10 Cash Deposit Requirements With regard to Infang, the respondent in this new shipper review, the following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this new shipper review (1) for subject merchandise produced and exported by the producer and exporter combination listed in the ‘‘Preliminary Results of New Shipper Review’’ section above, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this new shipper review; (2) for subject merchandise exported by Infang, but not produced by Jinxiang Excelink Foodstuffs Co., Ltd., the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the China-wide entity; and (3) for subject merchandise produced by Jinxiang 8 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:55 Jun 12, 2019 10 See Jkt 247001 PO 00000 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, certifications, or comments or actions by Commerce discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting time. Notice of No Sales If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (POR), it must notify Commerce within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All submissions must be filed electronically at http://access.trade.gov in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303.1 Such submissions are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy must be served on every party on Commerce’s service list. Respondent Selection In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to place the CBP data on the record within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 30 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection should be submitted within seven days after the placement of the CBP data on the record of this review. Parties wishing to submit rebuttal comments should submit those comments within five days after the deadline for the initial comments. In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act, the following guidelines regarding collapsing of companies for purposes of respondent selection will apply. In 1 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27587 general, Commerce has found that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (e.g., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, Commerce will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (e.g., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, if Commerce determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value (Q&V) Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete Q&V data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that has requested a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that Commerce may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. Determinations by Commerce to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis.

review, Commerce intends to calculate an importer-specific assessment 
rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for each importer's examined sales and, where possible, the 
total entered value of sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 
Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or 
de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.\10\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    With regard to Infang, the respondent in this new shipper review, 
the following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this new shipper review (1) for 
subject merchandise produced and exported by the producer and exporter 
combination listed in the ``Preliminary Results of New Shipper Review'' 
section above, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the 
final results of this new shipper review; (2) for subject merchandise 
exported by Infang, but not produced by Jinxiang Excelink Foodstuffs 
Co., Ltd., the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the China-wide 
entity; and (3) for subject merchandise produced by Jinxiang Excelink 
Foodstuffs Co., Ltd., but not exported by Infang, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate applicable to the exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further

Verification

    Consistent with section 782(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.307(b)(1)(iv), we intend to verify the information provided by 
Infang in the new shipper review using standard verification 
procedures, including on-site inspection of the producer's and 
exporter's facilities, and examination of relevant sales and financial 
records. Any verification results will be outlined in the verification 
report for Infang after completion of the verification.

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 double 
antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a 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 the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply

[[Page 27587]]

with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results of this new 
shipper review in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(b) and 777(i) of 
the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: June 7, 2019.
