SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On May 1, 2019, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the AD order on polyester staple fiber from Korea for the POR of May 1, 2018, through April 30, 2018.1 On May 31, 2019, Commerce received timely-filed requests from DAK Americas LLC and Auriga Polymers, Inc.

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 Department of 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 the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Scope of the Order The product covered by this review is STR from China. For a full description of the scope, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice.6 Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Based on the available record information, Commerce preliminarily determines that these companies had no shipments during the POR. For 3 During the investigation, Commerce found RMB/IFI to be a single entity, and because there were no changes during the POR to the facts that supported that determination, we continue to find that these companies are a part of a single entity for this administrative review. See Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 73 FR 58931 (October 8, 2008), unchanged in Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the Peoples Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 74 FR 8907 (February 27, 2009). 4 See RMB/IFI’s Letter, ‘‘Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China—No Sales Certification and Separate Rate Certification,’’ dated July 15, 2019. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the 2018–2019 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 6 Id. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 additional information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Consistent with our assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) administrative reviews, Commerce is not rescinding this review for these companies, but intends to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) based on the final results of the review.7 Separate Rates Because no other company under review submitted a separate rate application or certification, Commerce preliminarily determines that these companies have not demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate.8 For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. China-Wide Entity Commerce’s policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide entity applies to this administrative review.9 Under this policy, the Chinawide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, and we did not self-initiate a review, the Chinawide entity rate (i.e., 206.00 percent) 10 is not subject to change as a result of this review. Aside from the companies discussed above, Commerce considers all other companies for which a review was requested 11 to be part of the Chinawide entity. For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Public Comment In accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(c), case briefs or other written comments may be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance no later than 30 days after the date of publication of the preliminary determination, unless the Secretary alters the time limit.

However, this filing is moot because we determined that RMB/IFI had no reviewable shipments during the POR. 9 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013). 10 See Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Antidumping Duty Order, 74 FR 17154 (April 14, 2009). 11 See Appendix I.
