Background In August 2018, Commerce received timely requests to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on HFCs from China from Weitron International Refrigeration Equipment (Kushan) Co., Ltd. (Weitron) and the petitioners.1 Based upon these requests, on October 4, 2018, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce published a notice of initiation of an administrative review covering the period of review (POR) August 1, 2017 through July 31, 2018, with respect to 13 companies.2 On February 11, 2019, the petitioners withdrew their requests for an administrative review.3 Weitron did not withdraw its request for an administrative review. Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial federal government closure from December 22, 2018 through the resumption of operations on January 29, 2019.4 Accordingly, the revised deadline for the issuance of these preliminary results is now June 12, 2019. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Partial 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 the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The aforementioned withdrawal request by the petitioners was timely submitted, 1 The petitioners in this case are the American HFC Coalition and its individual members and District Lodge 154 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 83 FR 50077 (October 4, 2018).

VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Jun 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 and no other interested party requested an administrative review of these particular companies. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on HFCs from China, in part, with respect to the 12 companies named in the appendix. The instant review will continue with respect to Weitron. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments We received timely submissions from Weitron certifying that it did not have sales, shipments, exports, or entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.5 On April 11, 2019, we requested U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data to confirm any entries of subject merchandise imported into the United States during the POR and exported by Weitron. This query returned no entries during the POR.6 Additionally, in order to examine Weitron’s claim, we sent an inquiry to CBP requesting that any CBP officer alert Commerce if he/she had information contrary to this noshipments claim.7 On April 12, 2019, we received notification from CBP of no information contrary to the no shipment claims.8 Because we have not received information to the contrary from CBP, consistent with our practice, we preliminarily determine that Weitron had no shipments of subject merchandise. In addition, as discussed below, we find it is not appropriate to rescind the review with respect to Weitron but, rather, to complete the review with respect to it and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review, consistent with our practice in nonmarket economy (NME) cases.9 5 See letter from Weitron, ‘‘No Shipment Certification and Separate Rate Application for Weitron: Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Hydrofluorocarbon Blends from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated November 7, 2018, at 1. Because Weitron certified that it did not have sales, shipments, exports, or entries of subject merchandise during the POR, and given that a suspended entry is required to evaluate a company’s separate rate claim, we have not evaluated Weitron’s separate rate application for the purposes of this review. 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘No shipments inquiry for hydrofluorocarbon blends from the People’s Republic of China exported by Weitron International Refrigeration Equipment (Kunshan) Co., Ltd.

Assessment Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, 10 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii). 19 CFR 351.309(d)(1)(2). 12 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2), (d)(2). 13 See 19 CFR 351.303 (for general filing requirements). 11 See E:\FR\FM\14JNN1.SGM 14JNN1 27754 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 115 / Friday, June 14, 2019 / Notices for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). For those companies, Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. Pursuant to Commerce’s practice in NME cases, if Commerce continues to determine in the final results that Weitron had no shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries during the POR from Weitron will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.14 We intend to issue assessment instructions for Weitron 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review.15 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 previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters who are not under review in this segment of the proceeding but who have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (2) 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 the China-wide rate of 216.37 percent (i.e., including Weitron, which did not demonstrate that it was entitled to a separate rate in the most recently completed administrative review); 16 and (3) 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 Chinese exporter(s) that supplied that nonChinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Background

    In August 2018, Commerce received timely requests to conduct an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on HFCs from China 
from Weitron International Refrigeration Equipment (Kushan) Co., Ltd. 
(Weitron) and the petitioners.\1\ Based upon these requests, on October 
4, 2018, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (the Act), Commerce published a notice of initiation of an 
administrative review covering the period of review (POR) August 1, 
2017 through July 31, 2018, with respect to 13 companies.\2\ On 
February 11, 2019, the petitioners withdrew their requests for an 
administrative review.\3\ Weitron did not withdraw its request for an 
administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The petitioners in this case are the American HFC Coalition 
and its individual members and District Lodge 154 of the 
International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.
    \2\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 83 FR 50077 (October 4, 2018). See also 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews, 83 FR 57411 (November 15, 2018), correcting the spelling of 
three company names.
    \3\ See Petitioner's Letter, ``Hydrofluorocarbon Blends from the 
People's Republic of China: Withdrawal of Review Request,'' dated 
February 11, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by 
the partial federal government closure from December 22, 2018 through 
the resumption of operations on January 29, 2019.\4\ Accordingly, the 
revised deadline for the issuance of these preliminary results is now 
June 12, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See memorandum to the Record from Gary Taverman, Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, ``Deadlines 
Affected by the Partial Shutdown of the Federal Government,'' dated 
January 28, 2019. All deadlines in this segment of the proceeding 
have been extended by 40 days.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial 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 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The 
aforementioned withdrawal request by the petitioners was timely 
submitted, and no other interested party requested an administrative 
review of these particular companies. Therefore, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review of the antidumping 
duty order on HFCs from China, in part, with respect to the 12 
companies named in the appendix.
    The instant review will continue with respect to Weitron.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    We received timely submissions from Weitron certifying that it did 
not have sales, shipments, exports, or entries of subject merchandise 
to the United States during the POR.\5\ On April 11, 2019, we requested 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data to confirm any entries of 
subject merchandise imported into the United States during the POR and 
exported by Weitron. This query returned no entries during the POR.\6\ 
Additionally, in order to examine Weitron's claim, we sent an inquiry 
to CBP requesting that any CBP officer alert Commerce if he/she had 
information contrary to this no-shipments claim.\7\ On April 12, 2019, 
we received notification from CBP of no information contrary to the no 
shipment claims.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See letter from Weitron, ``No Shipment Certification and 
Separate Rate Application for Weitron: Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review of Hydrofluorocarbon Blends from the People's 
Republic of China,'' dated November 7, 2018, at 1. Because Weitron 
certified that it did not have sales, shipments, exports, or entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR, and given that a suspended 
entry is required to evaluate a company's separate rate claim, we 
have not evaluated Weitron's separate rate application for the 
purposes of this review.
    \6\ See Memorandum, ``No shipments inquiry for hydrofluorocarbon 
blends from the People's Republic of China exported by Weitron 
International Refrigeration Equipment (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. (A-570-
028),'' dated April 11, 2019.

the company below during the period 08/01/2017 through 7/31/2018,'' 
dated May 24, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because we have not received information to the contrary from CBP, 
consistent with our practice, we preliminarily determine that Weitron 
had no shipments of subject merchandise. In addition, as discussed 
below, we find it is not appropriate to rescind the review with respect 
to Weitron but, rather, to complete the review with respect to it and 
issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review, consistent with our practice in non-market economy (NME) 
cases.\9\

    Unless extended, we intend to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including our analysis of all issues raised in 
any written brief, within 120 days of publication of this notice in the 
Federal Register, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies 
for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be 
assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit 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). For those 
companies, Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 
days after publication of this notice.
    Pursuant to Commerce's practice in NME cases, if Commerce continues 
to determine in the final results that Weitron had no shipments of 
subject merchandise, any suspended entries during the POR from Weitron 
will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.\14\ We intend to issue 
assessment instructions for Weitron 15 days after the publication date 
of the final results of this review.\15\

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 previously 
investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters who are not 
under review in this segment of the proceeding but who have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific 
rate published for the most recent period; (2) 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 the China-
wide rate of 216.37 percent (i.e., including Weitron, which did not 
demonstrate that it was entitled to a separate rate in the most 
recently completed administrative review); \16\ and (3) 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 Chinese 
exporter(s) 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 review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751 
and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
