Background

On May 1, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on aluminum extrusions from the People's Republic of China (PRC) for the period January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012.[1] On May 31, 2013, we received from Electrolux North America, Inc., Electrolux Home Products, Inc., and Electrolux Major Appliances (collectively, Electrolux), a domestic interested party, a request that the Department conduct an administrative review of Hong Kong Gree Electric Appliances Sales Limited (Hong Kong Gree).[2] On June 28, 2013, the Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review with respect to 153 companies.[3] On August 27, 2013, Hong Kong Gree notified the Department that it had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review (POR).[4]

Intent To Rescind the 2012 Administrative Review, in Part

Hong Kong Gree submitted a letter to the Department certifying that it had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Electrolux did not comment on Hong Kong Gree's claim of no shipments.

Previously, on August 2, 2013, we released the results of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data query, which showed that Hong Kong Gree had no suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR.[5] After receipt of Hong Kong Gree's no shipment certification, we sent a “no shipments inquiry” message to CBP, which posted the message on September 20, 2013.[6] CPB did not respond to the Department within the customary ten days regarding the inquiry into whether there were any suspended entries from Hong Kong Gree during the POR.

Based on our analysis of all the information on the record, we preliminarily determine that Hong Kong Gree had no shipments or entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), and consistent with our practice,[7] we preliminarily determine to rescind the review for Hong Kong Gree. We will continue this administrative review with respect to those companies for which a review was requested and not subsequently withdrawn.[8]
