SUMMARY:

The Department of Commerce (“Department”) is conducting the sixth administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails (“nails”) from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”).[1] The Department selected two respondents Start Printed Page 53491for individual review.[2] The Department preliminarily determines that Stanley sold subject merchandise in the United States at prices below normal value (“NV”) during the period of review (“POR”), August 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014. The Department also preliminarily determines that Shandong Oriental Cherry failed to cooperate to the best of its ability in participating in the review, warranting the application of facts otherwise available with adverse inferences, and that it is part of the PRC-wide entity. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES:

Effective Date: September 4, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On September 30, 2014, the Department initiated the sixth administrative review of the antidumping duty order on nails from the PRC for the period August 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014.[3] On April 14, 2015, the Department partially extended the deadline for issuing the preliminary results by 100 days.[4] On July 10, 2015, the Department fully extended the deadline for issuing the preliminary results by 20 days,[5] to August 31, 2015.

Scope of the Order

The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails subject to the order are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (“HTSUS”) subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65, 7317.00.75, and 7907.00.6000.[6] While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.[7]

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

Based on the no-shipments letters filed by 11 different companies subject to this review, the Department preliminarily determines that these companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. For additional information regarding this determination, including a list of these companies, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Consistent with our assessment practice in non-market economy (“NME”) cases, the Department is not rescinding this review for these companies, but intends to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.[8]

Preliminary Affiliation and Single Entity Determination

Based on the record evidence for these preliminary results, we find that Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Group., Ltd., Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Import & Export Co., Ltd., Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Group Heze Products Co., Ltd., Jining Huarong Hardware Products Co., Ltd., Jining Dragon Fasteners Co., Ltd., and Jining Yonggu Metal Products Co., Ltd. are affiliated, pursuant to sections 771(33)(A), (E), (F), and (G) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”). Additionally, under 19 CFR 351.401(f)(1)-(2) and as facts available, we preliminarily find that these companies should be considered a single entity, (collectively known as the “Shandong Oriental Cherry Entity”), for purposes of these preliminary results.[9]

Application of Facts Available and Use of Adverse Inference

As discussed below and in further detail in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A), (B), and (C) of the Act, the Department determines that the use of facts otherwise available is warranted with respect to Shandong Oriental Cherry. Specifically, Shandong Oriental Cherry failed to provide in the form and manner requested by the Department: (1) An accurate, reliable sales reconciliation regarding its reported sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR; (2) an accurate, reliable factors of production (“FOP”) database that is reported on a CONNUM-specific basis; and (3) sales data, FOP data, and full product specifications from Shandong Oriental Cherry's affiliate, Jining Dragon Fasteners Co., Ltd., for the shooting nails it sold to the United States during the POR. Additionally, Shandong Oriental Cherry along with its affiliate, Jining Dragon Fasteners Co., Ltd., significantly impeded the proceeding by not providing accurate or complete responses to the Department's questions about its U.S. sales data and FOP data regarding its sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.

The Department finds that, taken together, and as explained in more detail in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, these deficiencies indicate that the Department cannot rely on Shandong Oriental Cherry's submitted information. In selecting from among the facts otherwise available, pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act, an adverse inference is warranted when the Department has determined that a respondent has failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability to comply with a request for information. Within the meaning of section 776(b) of the Act, the Department preliminarily finds that Shandong Oriental Cherry failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability to comply with the Department's requests for information and that the application of AFA is Start Printed Page 53492warranted. As AFA, and as explained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we have found that the Shandong Oriental Cherry Entity has failed to establish its independence from the PRC-wide entity and, as a result, is subject to the PRC-wide entity's rate.

Separate Rates

The Department preliminarily determines that information placed on the record by the mandatory respondent Stanley, as well as by the 20 other separate rate applicants, demonstrates that these companies are entitled to separate rate status. For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

PRC-Wide Entity

The Department's change in policy regarding conditional review of the PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.[10] Under this policy, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under review and the entity's rate is not subject to change (i.e., 118.04 percent).[11] Aside from the no shipments and separate rate companies discussed above, the Department considers all other companies for which a review was requested,[12] as well as the Shandong Oriental Cherry Entity, to be part of the PRC-wide entity. For additional information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum; see also Appendix 2 for a list of companies considered as part of the PRC-wide entity.

Rate for Separate-Rate Companies Not Individually Examined

The statute and the Department's regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to respondents not selected for individual examination when the Department limits its examination of companies subject to the administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2)(B) of the Act. Generally, the Department looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for respondents not individually examined in an administrative review. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act articulates a preference for not calculating an all-others rate using rates which are zero, de minimis or based entirely on facts available. Accordingly, the Department's usual practice has been to determine the dumping margin for companies not individually examined by averaging the weighted-average dumping margins for the individually examined respondents, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.[13] Consistent with this practice, in this review, we calculated a weighted-average dumping margin for Stanley that is above de minimis and not based entirely on FA; therefore, the Department assigned to the companies not individually examined, but which demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate, the weighted-average dumping margin calculated for Stanley.

Methodology

The Department conducted this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act. Constructed export prices and export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy country within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.

For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 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 http://access.trade.gov, and is available 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 on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/​frn/​. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Disclosure, Public Comment and Opportunity To Request a Hearing

The Department intends to disclose the calculations used in our analysis to parties in this review within five days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Interested parties may submit case briefs within 30 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results of review in the Federal Register.[14] Rebuttals to case briefs, which must be limited to issues raised in the case briefs, must be filed within five days after the time limit for filing case briefs.[15] Parties who submit arguments Start Printed Page 53493are requested to submit with the argument (a) a statement of the issue, (b) a brief summary of the argument, and (c) a table of authorities.[16] Parties submitting briefs should do so pursuant to the Department's electronic filing system, ACCESS.[17]

Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of publication of this notice.[18] Hearing requests should contain the following information: (1) The party's name, address, and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of the issues to be discussed. Oral presentations will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be notified of the time and date for the hearing to be held at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230.[19]

The Department intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, which will include the results of our analysis of all issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.[20] The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review.

For assessment purposes, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification.[21] For any individually examined respondent whose weighted average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, the Department will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.[22] Where either a respondent's weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.[23] For the respondents that were not selected for individual examination in this administrative review and that qualified for a separate rate, the assessment rate will be based on the average of the mandatory respondents.[24] We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate.

Pursuant to the Department's practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during the administrative review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.[25]

Cash Deposit Requirements

The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during the POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

This preliminary determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).
