(AKP), LG Chem Ltd. (LG Chem), and Hanwha Chemical Corporation (Hanwha Chemical).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 On May 23, 2019, we further extended the deadline for the preliminary results in this review to no later than October 10, 2019.3 For a complete description of the events that followed the initiation of this review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.4 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order is dioctyl terephthalate (DOTP), regardless of form. DOTP that has been blended with other products is included within this scope when such blends include constituent parts that have not been chemically reacted with each other to produce a different product. For such blends, only the DOTP component of the mixture is covered by the scope of this order. Subject merchandise is currently classified under subheading 2917.39.2000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Subject merchandise may also enter under subheadings 2917.39.7000 or 3812.20.1000 of the HTSUS.

The signed and electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as the Appendix to this notice. Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the following weighted-average dumping margins for the period February 3, 2017 through July 31, 2018: the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).6 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. If a respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review where applicable. In accordance with our practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which a respondent did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. 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 and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.7 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 
We calculated export price and constructed export price in accordance 
with section 772 of the Act. We calculated NV in accordance with 
section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology 
underlying our calculations, see the 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). 
ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov, 
and 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/. The signed and electronic versions of the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the 
topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the 
following weighted-average dumping margins for the period February 3, 
2017 through July 31, 2018:

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

                                                               (percent)

Hanwha Chemical Corporation.................................       22.97
LG Chem, Ltd................................................        0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.
    For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), we will 
calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\6\ We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review 
when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final 
results of this review is not zero or de minimis. If a respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the 
meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero 
or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this 
review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on 
entries of merchandise covered by this review where applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation methodology adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with our practice, for entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR for which a respondent did not know that the merchandise 
was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
such entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. 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 and for future deposits of estimated duties, 
where applicable.\7\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for each specific 
company listed above will be that established in the final results of 
this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, 
therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in 
which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously 
investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash 
deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the 
most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the company 
participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, 
or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and 
(4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 3.69 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
LTFV investigation.\8\ These 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) 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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: October 10, 2019.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
