Chlorinated Isocyanurates From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates (chlorinated isos) from the People's Republic of China (PRC). The period of review (POR) for this administrative review is June 1, 2009, through May 31, 2010. This administrative review covers four producers/exporters of the subject merchandise, i.e., Hebei Jiheng Chemical Co., Ltd. (Jiheng); Zhucheng Taisheng Chemical Co., Ltd. (Zhucheng); Juancheng Kangtai Chemical Co., Ltd. (Kangtai); and Arch Chemicals (China) Co., Ltd. (Arch China). Jiheng is the only producer/exporter being individually examined as a mandatory respondent. We preliminarily determine that Jiheng made sales in the United States at prices below normal value (NV). With respect to the three remaining respondents in this administrative review, we preliminarily determine that Zhucheng, Kangtai, and Arch China have demonstrated that they are entitled to a separate rate, and we are assigning to these companies Jiheng's calculated rate. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the importer-specific assessment rates are above de minimis. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results.
