SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 20, 2018, Commerce published the AD Order on PSF from the 
Republic of Korea in the Federal Register.\1\ TCK was excluded from the 
AD Order.\2\ On May 23, 2019, Commerce received a request on behalf of 
TAK for an expedited CCR to establish TAK as the successor-in-interest 
to TCK with respect to the AD Order.\3\ On June 17, 2019, Commerce 
informed TAK that it required additional information in order to 
determine whether to initiate the requested CCR.\4\ On June 21, 2019, 
TAK provided the requested information.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Fine Denier Polyester Staple Fiber from the People's 
Republic of China, India, the Republic of Korea, and Taiwan: 
Antidumping Duty Orders, 83 FR 34545 (July 20, 2018) (AD Order).

(May 23, 2019) (CCR Request).
    \4\ See Commerce's Letter to TAK, dated June 17, 2019.
    \5\ See TAK's Letter, ``Response Regarding Changed Circumstances 
Review Request'' (June 21, 2019) (Response Regarding Changed 
Circumstances Review Request).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the AD Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is fine denier polyester 
staple fiber (fine denier PSF), not carded or combed, measuring less 
than 3.3 decitex (3 denier) in diameter. The scope covers all fine 
denier PSF, whether coated or uncoated. Fine denier PSF is classifiable 
under the HTSUS subheading 5503.20.0025. Although the HTSUS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written 
description of the scope of the order is dispositive.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ For a complete description of the scope of the AD Order, see 
Memorandum, ``Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed 
Circumstances Review: Fine Denier Polyester Staple Fiber (PSF) from 
the Republic of Korea,'' dated concurrently, with and hereby adopted 
by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file 
electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). 
The signed and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Initiation

    Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216(d), Commerce will conduct a CCR upon 
receipt of information or a review request showing changed 
circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of an order. Among other 
things, Commerce has conducted CCRs to consider the applicability of 
cash deposit rates after there have been changes in the name or 
structure of a company, such as a merger or spinoff (``successor-in-
interest,'' or ``successorship,'' determinations). However, pursuant to 
19 CFR 351.216(c), Commerce will not conduct a CCR in a proceeding 
within 24 months of publication of the notice of final determination in 
that proceeding without good cause.
    The final determination that led to the AD Order was published on 
May 30, 2018.\7\ Thus, the CCR request under consideration was filed 
less than 24 months after the date of publication of the notice of 
final determination in the PSF investigation. However, pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.216(c), we find that good cause exists to initiate this CCR on 
the grounds of fairness and ease of administration. Commerce has found 
good cause on the basis of fairness and ease of administration in other 
CCRs involving ``successor-in-interest.'' \8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Fine Denier Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of 
Korea: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value, 83 FR 24743, 24744 (May 30, 2018), and accompanying Issues 
and Decision Memorandum.
    \8\ See Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed 
Circumstances Reviews: Antidumping Duty Orders on Crystalline 
Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled Into Modules, 
from the People's Republic of China and Antidumping Duty Order on 
Certain Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People's 
Republic of China, 82 FR 12558 (March 6, 2017), unchanged in 
Antidumping Duty Orders on Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, 
Whether or Not Assembled Into Modules, from the People's Republic of 
China and Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Crystalline Silicon 
Photovoltaic Products from the People's Republic of China: Final 
Results of Changed Circumstances Reviews, 82 FR 17797 (April 13, 
2017).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Moreover, we find the information provided is sufficient to warrant 
a CCR of the AD Order. Specifically, the information TAK provided 
regarding TCK's merger into TAK and the fact that TCK was excluded from 
the AD Order, but TAK is subject to the all-others dumping rate, 
demonstrates changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a CCR with 
respect to the order.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(b)(1) of the Act and 19 
CFR

[[Page 44280]]

351.216(d), we are initiating a CCR to determine whether TAK is the 
successor-in-interest to TCK for purposes of the AD Order.
    In addition, Commerce's regulations at 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) 
permit it to initiate a CCR and issue the preliminary results of that 
CCR simultaneously if it concludes that expedited action is warranted. 
We have on the record the information necessary to make a preliminary 
finding and therefore we find that expedited action is warranted.\9\ 
Consequently, we are combining the initiation of the CCR described 
above and our preliminary results in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.221(c)(3)(ii).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See, e.g., Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Softwood 
Lumber Products from Canada, 70 FR 50299, 50300 (August 26, 2005), 
unchanged in Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed 
Circumstances Review: Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada, 
70 FR 59721 (October 13, 2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results

    In determining whether one company is the successor to another for 
AD purposes, Commerce examines a number of factors including, but not 
limited to, changes in: (1) Management, (2) production facilities, (3) 
suppliers, and (4) customer base.\10\ While no one, or several, of 
these factors will necessarily provide a dispositive indication of 
succession, Commerce will generally consider one company to be the 
successor to another company if its resulting operations are 
essentially the same as those of its predecessor.\11\ Thus, if the 
evidence demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of 
the subject merchandise, the company, in its current form, operates as 
essentially the same business entity as the prior company, Commerce 
will assign the new company the cash deposit rate of its 
predecessor.\12\

    TAK provided evidence \13\ that: (1) TCK merged into TAK in April 
2019; (2) all of TCK's assets and liabilities were transferred to TAK, 
and TCK ceased to exist; and (3) there were no significant changes to 
management,\14\ production facilities,\15\ suppliers, or customer 
base.\16\ Based on the foregoing, which is explained in greater detail 
in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we preliminarily determine that 
TAK is the successor-in-interest to TCK for purposes of the AD Order.

    Should our final results of review remain the same as these 
preliminary results of review, effective the date of publication of the 
final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection to apply TCK's exclusion from the AD Order to TAK.
