SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES On September 11, 2018, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge (NWR) from Taiwan for the period September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018. On October 1, 2018, Commerce received a timely request, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), from Berwick Offray LLC and its whollyowned subsidiary Lion Ribbon Company, LLC (the petitioner) to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on NWR from Taiwan manufactured and/or exported by Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Maple Ribbon, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He.1 In November 2018, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on NWR from Taiwan with respect to these five companies 2 for the period September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018. Also in November 2018, we received timely submissions from Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He notifying Commerce that they did not export or sell subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.3 In December 2018 and February 2019, we received additional 1 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Narrow Woven Ribbons With Woven Selvedge From Taiwan/Petitioner’s Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated October 1, 2018. 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 83 FR 57411 (November 15, 2018) (Initiation Notice). 3 See Banduoo’s Letter, ‘‘Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from Taiwan: No Shipment Letter,’’ dated November 21, 2018 (Banduoo No Shipment Letter); Fujian Rongshu’s Letter, ‘‘Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from Taiwan: No Shipment Letter,’’ dated November 21, 2018 (Fujian Rongshu No Shipment Letter); Roung Shu’s Letter, ‘‘Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from Taiwan: No Shipment Letter,’’ dated November 21, 2018; and Xiamen Yi-He’s Letter, ‘‘Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from Taiwan: No Shipment Letter,’’ dated November 21, 2018 (Xiamen Yi-He No Shipment Letter).

Also in March 2019, we selected Maple Ribbon as a mandatory respondent in this review and issued an AD questionnaire to it.5 However, in the same month, the petitioner timely withdrew its request for an administrative review with respect to Maple Ribbon.6 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, 2019.7 The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now July 12, 2019. Scope of the Order The scope of this order covers narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge, in any length, but with a width (measured at the narrowest span of the ribbon) less than or equal to 12 centimeters, composed of, in whole or in part, manmade fibers (whether artificial or synthetic, including but not limited to nylon, polyester, rayon, polypropylene, and polyethylene teraphthalate), metal threads and/or metalized yarns, or any combination thereof. Narrow woven ribbons subject to the order may: • Also include natural or other nonman-made fibers; • be of any color, style, pattern, or weave construction, including but not limited to single faced satin, doublefaced satin, grosgrain, sheer, taffeta, 4 See Roung Shu’s Letter, ‘‘Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from Taiwan: Respondent Selection Comments,’’ dated December 21, 2018 (Roung Shu No Shipment Comments); and Roung Shu’s Letter, ‘‘Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from Taiwan: Additional Materials Related to No Shipments Letter,’’ dated February 22, 2019 (Roung Shu Additional No Shipment Comments). 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Respondent Selection,’’ dated March 13, 2019; and Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Questionnaire,’’ dated March 13, 2019. 6 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Narrow Woven Ribbons With Woven Selvedge From Taiwan/Petitioner’s Withdrawal Of Request For Administrative Review Of Maple Ribbon,’’ dated March 21, 2019 (Petitioner Withdrawal Request).

The HTSUS statistical categories and subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the merchandise covered by this order is dispositive. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments On November 21, 2018, Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He timely filed statements reporting that they made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.8 We confirmed the claims from Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, and Xiamen Yi-He with CBP. Based on this information, we preliminarily determine that Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, and Xiamen Yi-He had no shipments during the POR. With respect to Roung Shu, we noted that the CBP data placed on the record of this review contained entries from Roung Shu which were classified as subject merchandise. Roung Shu submitted comments regarding the CBP data, in which it explained that its customers had erroneously categorized the entries as subject merchandise.9 To support its statements, Roung Shu submitted factual information related to the entries which demonstrated that the products contained in the shipments were not subject to the review, and it provided documentation filed by the importer with CBP to correct the entry type.10 After reviewing the additional information provided by Roung Shu, we preliminarily determine that Roung Shu also had no shipments during the POR. Consistent with our practice, we are not preliminarily rescinding the review with respect to Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He 8 See Banduoo No Shipment Letter; Fujian Rongshu No Shipment Letter; and Xiamen Yi-He No Shipment Letter. 9 See Roung Shu No Shipment Comments; and Roung Shu Additional No Shipment Comments. 10 See Roung Shu No Shipment Comments; and Roung Shu Additional No Shipment Comments.

The petitioner’s withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon was submitted within the 90-day period and, thus, is timely.12 Because the petitioner’s withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon for an antidumping duty administrative review is timely, and because no other party requested a review of this company, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this administrative review, in part, with respect to Maple Ribbon.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 11, 2018, Commerce published in the Federal Register a 
notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge 
(NWR) from Taiwan for the period September 1, 2017 through August 31, 
2018. On October 1, 2018, Commerce received a timely request, in 
accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), from Berwick Offray LLC and its wholly-owned subsidiary Lion 
Ribbon Company, LLC (the petitioner) to conduct an administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on NWR from Taiwan manufactured 
and/or exported by Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Maple Ribbon, Roung Shu, 
and Xiamen Yi-He.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Petitioner's Letter, ``Narrow Woven Ribbons With Woven 
Selvedge From Taiwan/Petitioner's Request for Administrative 
Review,'' dated October 1, 2018.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In November 2018, Commerce published in the Federal Register a 
notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on NWR from Taiwan with respect to these five companies \2\ 
for the period September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018. Also in 
November 2018, we received timely submissions from Banduoo, Fujian 
Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He notifying Commerce that they did 
not export or sell subject merchandise to the United States during the 
POR.\3\ In December 2018 and February 2019, we received additional 
information from Roung Shu related to its no shipment claim.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Administrative Reviews, 83 FR 57411 (November 15, 2018) (Initiation 
Notice).

dated November 21, 2018 (Fujian Rongshu No Shipment Letter); Roung 
Shu's Letter, ``Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from 
Taiwan: No Shipment Letter,'' dated November 21, 2018; and Xiamen

Taiwan: No Shipment Letter,'' dated November 21, 2018 (Xiamen Yi-He 
No Shipment Letter).

Letter, ``Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from Taiwan: 
Additional Materials Related to No Shipments Letter,'' dated 
February 22, 2019 (Roung Shu Additional No Shipment Comments).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In March 2019, we confirmed Banduoo's, Fujian Roung Shu's, and 
Xiamen Yi-He's no shipment claims with U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP). Also in March 2019, we selected Maple Ribbon as a 
mandatory respondent in this review and issued an AD questionnaire to 
it.\5\ However, in the same month, the petitioner timely withdrew its 
request for an administrative review with respect to Maple Ribbon.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Memorandum, ``Respondent Selection,'' dated March 13, 
2019; and Commerce's Letter, ``Antidumping Duty Questionnaire,'' 
dated March 13, 2019.

Selvedge From Taiwan/Petitioner's Withdrawal Of Request For 
Administrative Review Of Maple Ribbon,'' dated March 21, 2019 
(Petitioner Withdrawal Request). We note that the petitioner's 
withdrawal of this request was submitted within the tolled 90-day 
period and, thus, is timely.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.\7\ The revised 
deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now July 12, 
2019.

January 28, 2019 (Tolling Memo). All deadlines in this segment of 
the proceeding have been extended by 40 days.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On November 21, 2018, Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and 
Xiamen Yi-He timely filed statements reporting that they made no 
shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the 
POR.\8\ We confirmed the claims from Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, and 
Xiamen Yi-He with CBP. Based on this information, we preliminarily 
determine that Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, and Xiamen Yi-He had no 
shipments during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Banduoo No Shipment Letter; Fujian Rongshu No Shipment 
Letter; and Xiamen Yi-He No Shipment Letter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With respect to Roung Shu, we noted that the CBP data placed on the 
record of this review contained entries from Roung Shu which were 
classified as subject merchandise. Roung Shu submitted comments 
regarding the CBP data, in which it explained that its customers had 
erroneously categorized the entries as subject merchandise.\9\ To 
support its statements, Roung Shu submitted factual information related 
to the entries which demonstrated that the products contained in the 
shipments were not subject to the review, and it provided documentation 
filed by the importer with CBP to correct the entry type.\10\ After 
reviewing the additional information provided by Roung Shu, we 
preliminarily determine that Roung Shu also had no shipments during the 
POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Roung Shu No Shipment Comments; and Roung Shu Additional 
No Shipment Comments.
    \10\ See Roung Shu No Shipment Comments; and Roung Shu 
Additional No Shipment Comments.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with our practice, we are not preliminarily rescinding 
the review with respect to Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and 
Xiamen Yi-He but, rather, we will complete the review with respect to 
these companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the 
final results of this review.\11\

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

Rescission of Review, in Part

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The 
petitioner's withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon was 
submitted within the 90-day period and, thus, is timely.\12\ Because 
the petitioner's withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon 
for an antidumping duty administrative review is timely, and because no 
other party requested a review of this company, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this administrative review, in 
part, with respect to Maple Ribbon.

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

Assessment Rates

    With respect to Maple Ribbon, Commerce will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties at the cash deposit rate in effect on the date of 
entry for entries during the period September 1, 2017 through August 
31, 2018, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). We intend to 
issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this 
notice.
    With respect to the remaining companies covered by the review, upon 
issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall 
assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\17\ The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \18\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Further, if we continue to find in the final results that Banduoo, 
Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He had no shipments of subject 
merchandise during the POR, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any 
suspended entries that entered under their antidumping duty case 
numbers (i.e., at that exporter's rate) at the all-others rate if there 
is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction. We intend to issue liquidation instructions for Banduoo, 
Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For merchandise 
exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but 
covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate 
will continue to be the company-specific rate published from the most 
recently completed segment; (2) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, or the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently completed segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and 
(3) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 4.37 percent, the all-others rate determined in the 
less-than-fair-value investigation.\19\ These cash 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 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 doubled 
antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as a preliminary 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/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 sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).
