Scope of the Order The scope of the order includes certain chemically-bonded magnesia carbon bricks from China. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice. Methodology Commerce is conducting this administrative review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Intent To Rescind the Administrative Review, in Part, and Status of the China-Wide Entity Based on information submitted after the initiation of this administrative review, and due to the fact that we have not received any information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) indicating that the companies that submitted no shipment certifications had reviewable entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, Commerce preliminarily determines certain companies subject to this review had no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR.4 Should evidence arise that leads us to conclude that the companies subject to review had reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR, we will revisit this issue in the final results. Otherwise, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we intend to rescind the administrative review of these companies in the final results. Additionally, none of the following companies subject to this review filed a separate rate application or certification: Liaoning Zhongmei High Temperature Material Co., Ltd., Liaoning Zhongmei Holding Co., Ltd., RHI Refractories Liaoning Co., Ltd., Shenglong Refractories Co., Ltd., Yingkou Heping Sanhua Materials Co., Ltd., and Yingkou Heping Samwha Minerals, Co., Ltd. Thus, Commerce preliminarily determines that these companies have not demonstrated their eligibility for separate rate status. As such, Commerce preliminarily determines that these companies are part of the China-wide entity. In addition, Commerce no longer considers the non-market economy (NME) entity as an exporter 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘Certain magnesia carbon bricks from China (A–570–954)’’ dated July 31, 2019 (detailing CBP’s response to Commerce’s noshipment inquiry).

Accordingly, the NME entity will not be under review unless Commerce specifically receives a request for, or self-initiates, a review of the NME entity. In this administrative review, no party requested a review of the Chinawide entity. Moreover, we have not selfinitiated a review of the China-wide entity. Because no review of the Chinawide entity is being conducted, the China-wide entity’s entries are not subject to the review and the rate applicable to the NME entity is not subject to change as a result of this review. The China-wide entity rate is 236.00 percent. Public Comment Case briefs must be submitted to Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS) no later than 30 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results, unless the Secretary alters the time limit. Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in case briefs, may be submitted no later than five days after the deadline date for case briefs.5 Commerce will notify interested parties when it has determined a deadline for case briefs via ACCESS. Parties who submit case or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.6 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to request a hearing must submit a written request to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce, filed electronically through ACCESS, within 30 days after the publication of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On November 15, 2018, Commerce published in the Federal Register a 
notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on magnesia carbon bricks for five producers/exporters for 
the POR. \1\ 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 28, 2019.\2\ 
Commerce extended the deadline for these preliminary results from July 
12, 2019, to no later than October 10, 2019. For a more detailed 
description of the events that followed the initiation of this review, 
see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with these 
results and hereby adopted by this notice.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 83 FR 57414 (November 15, 2018) (Initiation 
Notice). The companies subject to this review are Fedmet Resources 
Corporation (Fedmet); Fengchi Imp. and Exp. Co., Ltd. of Haicheng 
City, Fengchi Mining Co., Ltd. of Haicheng City, and Fengchi 
Refractories Co., of Haicheng City (collectively, Fengchi); and RHI 
Liaoning Zhongmei High Temperature Material Co., Ltd., Liaoning 
Zhongmei Holding Co., Ltd., RHI Refractories Liaoning Co., Ltd., 
Shenglong Refractories Co., Ltd., Yingkou Heping Sanhua Materials 
Co., Ltd., and Yingkou Heping Samwha Minerals, Co., Ltd.
    \2\ See Memorandum, ``Deadlines Affected by the Partial Shutdown 
of the Federal Government,'' dated January 28, 2019. All deadlines 
in this proceeding have been extended by 40 days.
    \3\ See Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary 
Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order 
on Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People's Republic of 
China; 2017-2018,'' dated concurrently with this notice (Preliminary 
Determination 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). 
Access to ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and is available to all parties in the Central Records 
Unit, Room B8024 of the main Commerce building. In addition, a complete 
version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly 
at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. A list of topics 
discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an 
Appendix to this notice. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and 
the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Scope of the Order

    The scope of the order includes certain chemically-bonded magnesia 
carbon bricks from China. A full description of the scope of the order 
is contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is hereby 
adopted by this notice.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this administrative review in accordance 
with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act). For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Preliminary Intent To Rescind the Administrative Review, in Part, and 
Status of the China-Wide Entity

    Based on information submitted after the initiation of this 
administrative review, and due to the fact that we have not received 
any information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
indicating that the companies that submitted no shipment certifications 
had reviewable entries of subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR, Commerce preliminarily determines certain companies 
subject to this review had no reviewable entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR.\4\ Should evidence arise that leads us to conclude that 
the companies subject to review had reviewable entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR, we will revisit this issue in the final 
results. Otherwise, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we intend to 
rescind the administrative review of these companies in the final 
results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Memorandum, ``Certain magnesia carbon bricks from China 
(A-570-954)'' dated July 31, 2019 (detailing CBP's response to 
Commerce's no-shipment inquiry).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, none of the following companies subject to this 
review filed a separate rate application or certification: Liaoning 
Zhongmei High Temperature Material Co., Ltd., Liaoning Zhongmei Holding 
Co., Ltd., RHI Refractories Liaoning Co., Ltd., Shenglong Refractories 
Co., Ltd., Yingkou Heping Sanhua Materials Co., Ltd., and Yingkou 
Heping Samwha Minerals, Co., Ltd. Thus, Commerce preliminarily 
determines that these companies have not demonstrated their eligibility 
for separate rate status. As such, Commerce preliminarily determines 
that these companies are part of the China-wide entity. In addition, 
Commerce no longer considers the non-market economy (NME) entity as an 
exporter conditionally subject to an antidumping duty administrative 
review. Accordingly, the NME entity will not be under review unless 
Commerce specifically receives a request for, or self-initiates, a 
review of the NME entity. In this administrative review, no party 
requested a review of the China-wide entity. Moreover, we have not 
self-initiated a review of the China-wide entity. Because no review of 
the China-wide entity is being conducted, the China-wide entity's 
entries are not subject to the review and the rate applicable to the 
NME entity is not subject to change as a result of this review. The 
China-wide entity rate is 236.00 percent.

Public Comment

    Case briefs must be submitted to Enforcement and Compliance's 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service 
System (ACCESS) no later than 30 days after the date of publication of 
these preliminary results, unless the Secretary alters the time limit. 
Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in case briefs, may be 
submitted no later than five days after the deadline date for case 
briefs.\5\ Commerce will notify interested parties when it has 
determined a deadline for case briefs via ACCESS. Parties who submit 
case or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged to submit 
with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary 
of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.\6\

for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at the U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC
