Brake Rotors From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of the 2004/2005 Administrative Review and Preliminary Notice of Intent To Rescind the 2004/2005 New Shipper Review
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is currently conducting the 2004/2005 administrative review and the 2004/2005 new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on brake rotors from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). We preliminarily determine that sales have been made below normal value (``NV'') with respect to certain exporters who participated fully and are entitled to a separate rate in the administrative review. We also have preliminarily determined that the single sale made by the new shipper, Shanxi Zhongding Auto Parts Co., Ltd.(``SZAP''), was not bona fide. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of these reviews, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review (``POR'') for which the importer-specific assessment rates are above de minimis. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. We will issue the final results no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice.
