SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) preliminarily determines that LG Chem, Ltd. (LG Chem) made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value during the August 1, 2019, through July 31, 2020 period of review (POR). Commerce preliminarily determines that Aekyung Petrochemical Co., Ltd. (AKP) had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results of review. DATES: Applicable May 7, 2021.

AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 6, 2020, based on timely requests for review, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on dioctyl terephthalate (DOTP) from the Republic of Korea (Korea), covering two companies: AKP and LG Chem.1 On January 22, 2021, LG Chem informed Commerce that it would not be participating in the review.2 For a complete description of the events that followed the initiation of this review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.3 The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document that is on file 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 63081 (October 6, 2020). 2 See LG Chem’s Letter, ‘‘LG Chem’s Decision to Stop Participating in AD Review,’’ dated January 22, 2021. 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the 2019–2020 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Dioctyl Terephthalate from the Republic of Korea,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).

In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/ frn/. A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an appendix to this notice. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order is 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. While the HTSUS classifications are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. See the Preliminary Decision Memorandum for a full description of the scope of the order. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments On November 5, 2020, AKP submitted a letter certifying that it had no exports, sales or entries of subject merchandise into the United States during the POR.4 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) provided no information to contradict these claims of no shipments during the POR.5 Therefore, we preliminarily determine that AKP had no shipments during the POR. Consistent with Commerce’s practice, we will not rescind the review with respect to AKP, but rather will complete the review and issue appropriate liquidation instructions to CBP based on the final results.6 For further discussion, 4 See AKP’s Letter, ‘‘Administrative Review of the Antidumping Order on Dioctyl Terephthalate from Korea for the 2019–20 Review Period—No Shipments Letter,’’ dated November 5, 2020. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Dioctyl terephthalate from the Republic of Korea (A–580–889),’’ dated January 5, 2021. 6 See, e.g., Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Review, Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2012–2013, 79 FR 15951, 15952 (March 24, 2014), unchanged in Certain Frozen Warmwater E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM Continued 07MYN1 24586 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 87 / Friday, May 7, 2021 / Notices see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Pursuant to section 776(a) of the Act, Commerce is preliminarily relying upon facts otherwise available to determine a weighted-average dumping margin for LG Chem in this review. Commerce preliminarily finds that necessary information is not available on the record, and that LG Chem withheld information requested by Commerce, failed to provide the requested information in the form and manner requested, and significantly impeded the proceeding, warranting a determination on the basis of the facts available under section 776(a) of the Act. Further, Commerce preliminarily determines that LG Chem failed to cooperate to the best of its ability, and thus, Commerce is applying facts available with adverse inferences (AFA) to LG Chem, in accordance with section 776(b) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions regarding the application of AFA, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the following weighted-average dumping margin for the period August 1, 2019, through July 31, 2020: Exporter or producer Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) LG Chem, Ltd ............................. 47.86 Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. 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 If the preliminary results are unchanged for the final results, we will instruct Shrimp from Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Final Determination of No Shipments, and Partial Rescission of Review; 2012–2013, 79 FR 51306, 51307 (August 28, 2014). 7 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:55 May 06, 2021 Jkt 253001 CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate equal to LG Chem’s weightedaverage dumping margin in the final results of this review to all entries of subject merchandise during the period of review from LG Chem. For AKP, if we find that AKP had no shipments during the POR, then we will instruct CBP to liquidate any suspended entries associated with AKP pursuant to the reseller policy.8 Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication). 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 LG Chem will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 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 or reviewed 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 or a previously completed review, or in the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 3.69 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.9 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. 8 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 9 See Dioctyl Terephthalate from the Republic of Korea: Antidumping Duty Order, 82 FR 39410 (August 18, 2017).

Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at a time and date to be determined.16 Final Results of Review Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, unless otherwise extended.17 Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 10 See 19 CFR 351.224(b). 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii). 12 See 19 CFR 351.309(d)(1); see also Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID–19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 41363 (July 10, 2020) (Temporary Rule). 13 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2). 14 See 19 CFR 351.303. 15 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 16 Id. 17 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. 11 See E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 87 / Friday, May 7, 2021 / Notices 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 6, 2020, based on timely requests for review, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce initiated an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on dioctyl 
terephthalate (DOTP) from the Republic of Korea (Korea), covering two 
companies: AKP and LG Chem.\1\ On January 22, 2021, LG Chem informed 
Commerce that it would not be participating in the review.\2\

Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 63081 (October 6, 2020).
    \2\ See LG Chem's Letter, ``LG Chem's Decision to Stop

initiation of this review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\3\ 
The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document that 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. In 
addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can

Results of the 2019-2020 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: 
Dioctyl Terephthalate from the Republic of Korea,'' dated 
concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order is 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. While the HTSUS 
classifications are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. See the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum for a full description of the scope of 
the order.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On November 5, 2020, AKP submitted a letter certifying that it had 
no exports, sales or entries of subject merchandise into the United 
States during the POR.\4\ U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
provided no information to contradict these claims of no shipments 
during the POR.\5\ Therefore, we preliminarily determine that AKP had 
no shipments during the POR. Consistent with Commerce's practice, we 
will not rescind the review with respect to AKP, but rather will 
complete the review and issue appropriate liquidation instructions to 
CBP based on the final results.\6\ For further discussion,

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1)(B) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 
Pursuant to section 776(a) of the Act, Commerce is preliminarily 
relying upon facts otherwise available to determine a weighted-average 
dumping margin for LG Chem in this review. Commerce preliminarily finds 
that necessary information is not available on the record, and that LG 
Chem withheld information requested by Commerce, failed to provide the 
requested information in the form and manner requested, and 
significantly impeded the proceeding, warranting a determination on the 
basis of the facts available under section 776(a) of the Act. Further, 
Commerce preliminarily determines that LG Chem failed to cooperate to 
the best of its ability, and thus, Commerce is applying facts available 
with adverse inferences (AFA) to LG Chem, in accordance with section 
776(b) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying 
our conclusions regarding the application of AFA, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the 
following weighted-average dumping margin for the period August 1, 
2019, through July 31, 2020:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                              Weighted-
                                                               average
                    Exporter or producer                       dumping
                                                                margin
                                                              (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
LG Chem, Ltd...............................................       47.86
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review. 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\ If the preliminary 
results are unchanged for the final results, we will instruct CBP to 
apply an ad valorem assessment rate equal to LG Chem's weighted-average 
dumping margin in the final results of this review to all entries of 
subject merchandise during the period of review from LG Chem. For AKP, 
if we find that AKP had no shipments during the POR, then we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate any suspended entries associated with AKP 
pursuant to the reseller policy.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
    \8\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier 
than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the 
U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will 
direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties 
to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 
90 days of publication).

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 LG Chem will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 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 or reviewed companies not participating in this review, 
the cash deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate
