SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On June 8, 2016, the Department published in the Federal Register its preliminary affirmative determination in the LTFV investigation of IMTDC from the PRC.[1]

A summary of the events that occurred since the Department published the Preliminary Determination, as well as a full discussion of the issues raised by parties for this final determination, may be found in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.[2] The Issues and 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 Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/​frn/​. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version are identical in content.

Period of Investigation

The period of investigation (“POI”) is April 1, 2015, through September 30, 2015.

Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under investigation is dispositive. For a complete description of the scope of the investigation, see Appendix I to this notice.

Scope Comments

Since the Preliminary Determination, Petitioner, as well as interested parties Caterpillar Inc., Carrier Corporation, Dahua Machine Manufacturing Co. Ltd., General Motors Corporation, Kohler Co., Mercury Marine, Otis Elevator Company, Speed Solutions International Inc., ZF Services, LLC, and Vibracoustic North America LP, commented on the scope of this investigation as well as the companion IMTDCs LTFV investigation from the Canada and IMTDCs countervailing duty investigation from the PRC. The Department reviewed these comments and has incorporated into the scope of these investigations Petitioner's exclusion for certain flywheels with a permanently attached outer ring gear and for certain parts of torsional vibration dampers. For further discussion, see the “Final Scope Decision Memorandum.” [3] The scope in Appendix I reflects the final modified scope language.

Analysis of Comments Received

All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs that were submitted by parties in this investigation are addressed in either the Final Determination Scope Decision Memorandum or the Issues and Decision Memorandum accompanying this notice, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this notice at Appendix II.

Verification

As provided in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), in June 2016, we verified the sales and factors of production information submitted by Powermach Import & Export Co., Ltd. (“Powermach”),[4] the sole participating individually examined respondent. We used standard verification procedures, including an examination of relevant accounting and production records, and original source documents provided by Powermach.[5]

Separate Rates

In the Preliminary Determination, the Department granted separate-rate status to all of the companies which provided separate rates information, except NOK (Wuxi) Vibration Control China Co. Ltd. (“NVCC”), which withdrew from participation as a mandatory respondent in this investigation, and Baldor Electric Canada (“Baldor”) and Yueqing Bethel Shaft Collar Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (“Yueqing Bethel”), which failed to respond to the Department's request for supplemental information. In this final determination, the Department has continued to treat these three companies as part of the PRC-wide entity and is also treating Zhejiang Dongxing Auto Parts Co., Ltd. (“Dongxing”) as part of the PRC-wide entity. For a full discussion of the Department's separate rates determinations with respect to Baldor, Yueqing Bethel, and Dongxing (no parties commented on the Department's separate rate determination with respect to NVCC) Start Printed Page 75034 see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Changes to the Dumping Margin Calculations Since the Preliminary Determination

Based on the Department's analysis of the comments received and findings at verification, we made certain changes to our dumping margin calculations. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Dumping Margins for Non-Individually Examined Respondents

Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the estimated rate for all companies that have not been individually examined is normally equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually examined, excluding any zero and de minimis dumping margins, and any dumping margins determined entirely on the basis of facts available. In this final determination, we calculated a weighted-average dumping margin for Powermach (the only cooperating mandatory respondent) which is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available. Accordingly, we assigned Powermach's weighted-average dumping margin to non-individually examined PRC exporters qualifying for a separate rate.

PRC-Wide Rate

In our Preliminary Determination, we found that the PRC-wide entity, which includes certain PRC exporters and/or producers that did not respond to the Department's requests for information, failed to provide necessary information, failed to provide information in a timely manner, and significantly impeded this proceeding by not submitting the requested information. We also find that they failed to cooperate. As a result, we preliminarily determined to calculate the PRC-wide dumping margin on the basis of adverse facts available (“AFA”) pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act. We compared the petition dumping margins to the dumping margins that we calculated for Powermach, the participating individually examined respondent, in order to determine the probative value of the dumping margins in the petition for use as AFA. We continue to find that the highest petition dumping margin, 401.68 percent, is reliable and relevant because it is within the range of the transaction-specific dumping margins on the record for Powermach. Therefore, we assigned this dumping margin (i.e., 401.68 percent) to the PRC-wide entity.

Combination Rates

In the Initiation Notice, the Department stated that it would calculate combination rates for the respondents that are eligible for a separate rate in this investigation.[6] Policy Bulletin 05.1 describes this practice.[7]

Final Determination Dumping Margins

For this final determination, the Department determines that IMTDC are being or likely to be sold in the United States at LTFV, as provided in section 735 of the Act. The Department determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist during the period April 1, 2015, through September 30, 2015:

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to continue to suspend liquidation of all entries of IMTDC from the PRC, which were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after June 8, 2016, the date of publication in the Federal Register of the affirmative Preliminary Determination. Further, Start Printed Page 75035pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act, the Department will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the amount by which the normal value exceeds U.S. price, adjusted where appropriate for export subsidies and estimated domestic subsidy pass-through,[8] as follows: (1) For the exporter/producer combinations listed in the table above, the cash deposit rate is the weighted-average dumping margin listed for that combination in the table; (2) for all combinations of PRC exporters/producers of merchandise under consideration not listed in the table above, the cash deposit rate is the weighted average dumping margin listed for the PRC-wide entity in the table above; and (3) for all non-PRC exporters of merchandise under consideration not listed in the table above, the cash deposit rate is the cash deposit rate applicable to the PRC exporter/producer combination that supplied that non-PRC exporter. The suspension of liquidation instructions will remain in effect until further notice.

In a LTFV investigation with a companion countervailing duty (“CVD”) investigation, we normally adjust antidumping duty cash deposit rates by the amount of export subsidies, where appropriate. In the companion CVD investigation, we found that Powermach did not receive export subsidies. The countervailing duty rate for all-others companies in the CVD case is based on Powermach's countervailing duty rate, and thus all-others companies were not assigned an export subsidy rate. Therefore, no offset to Powermach's or the separate rate entities' antidumping duty cash deposit rates for export subsidies is necessary. Additionally, we likewise are not adjusting the antidumping duty cash deposit rate applicable to the PRC-wide entity for export subsidies.

Pursuant to 777A(f) of the Act, we are not adjusting the antidumping duty cash deposit rates for estimated domestic subsidy pass-through. Based on the data on the record of this investigation, the Department continues to find that there was not a general decrease in the U.S. average import price during the relevant period. Thus, the Department continues to find that the requirement under section 777A(f)(1)(B) of the Act has not been met, and has not made an adjustment to the antidumping duty cash deposit rates under section 777A(f) of the Act.

Disclosure

We intend to disclose to parties in this proceeding the calculations performed for this final determination within five days of the date of public announcement of our final determination, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

International Trade Commission (“ITC”) Notification

In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the ITC of our final affirmative determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this proceeding is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of IMTDC from the PRC no later than 45 days after our final determination. If the ITC determines that such injury does not exist, this proceeding will be terminated and all securities posted will be refunded or canceled. If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, the Department will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of liquidation.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

This notice will serve as a reminder to the parties subject to administrative protective order (“APO”) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written notification of return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

We are issuing and publishing this determination in accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(c).

Appendix I

Scope of the Investigation

The products covered by this investigation are iron mechanical transfer drive components, whether finished or unfinished (i.e., blanks or castings). Subject iron mechanical transfer drive components are in the form of wheels or cylinders with a center bore hole that may have one or more grooves or teeth in their outer circumference that guide or mesh with a flat or ribbed belt or like device and are often referred to as sheaves, pulleys, flywheels, flat pulleys, idlers, conveyer pulleys, synchronous sheaves, and timing pulleys. The products covered by this investigation also include bushings, which are iron mechanical transfer drive components in the form of a cylinder and which fit into the bore holes of other mechanical transfer drive components to lock them into drive shafts by means of elements such as teeth, bolts, or screws.

Iron mechanical transfer drive components subject to this investigation are those not less than 4.00 inches (101 mm) in the maximum nominal outer diameter.

Unfinished iron mechanical transfer drive components (i.e., blanks or castings) possess the approximate shape of the finished iron mechanical transfer drive component and have not yet been machined to final specification after the initial casting, forging or like operations. These machining processes may include cutting, punching, notching, boring, threading, mitering, or chamfering.

Subject merchandise includes iron mechanical transfer drive components as defined above that have been finished or machined in a third country, including but not limited to finishing/machining processes such as cutting, punching, notching, boring, threading, mitering, or chamfering, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigation if performed in the country of manufacture of the iron mechanical transfer drive components.

Subject iron mechanical transfer drive components are covered by the scope of the investigation regardless of width, design, or iron type (e.g., gray, white, or ductile iron). Subject iron mechanical transfer drive components are covered by the scope of the investigation regardless of whether they have non-iron attachments or parts and regardless of whether they are entered with other mechanical transfer drive components or as part of a mechanical transfer drive assembly (which typically includes one or more of the iron mechanical transfer drive components identified above, and which may also include other parts such as a belt, coupling and/or shaft). When entered as a mechanical transfer drive assembly, only the iron components that meet the physical description of covered merchandise are covered merchandise, not the other components in the mechanical transfer drive assembly (e.g., belt, coupling, shaft). However, the scope excludes flywheels with a ring gear permanently attached onto the outer diameter. A ring gear is a steel ring with convex external teeth cut or machined into the outer diameter, and where the diameter of the ring exceeds 200 mm and doesn't exceed 2,244.3 mm.

For purposes of this investigation, a covered product is of “iron” where the article has a carbon content of 1.7 percent by weight or above, regardless of the presence and amount of additional alloying elements.

Excluded from the scope are finished torsional vibration dampers (TVDs). A Start Printed Page 75036finished TVD is an engine component composed of three separate components: an inner ring, a rubber ring and an outer ring. The inner ring is an iron wheel or cylinder with a bore hole to fit a crank shaft which forms a seal to prevent leakage of oil from the engine. The rubber ring is a dampening medium between the inner and outer rings that effectively reduces the torsional vibration. The outer ring, which may be made of materials other than iron, may or may not have grooves in its outer circumference. To constitute a finished excluded TVD, the product must be composed of each of the three parts identified above and the three parts must be permanently affixed to one another such that both the inner ring and the outer ring are permanently affixed to the rubber ring. A finished TVD is excluded only if it meets the physical description provided above; merchandise that otherwise meets the description of the scope and does not satisfy the physical description of excluded finished TVDs above is still covered by the scope of the investigation regardless of end use or identification as a TVD.

Also excluded from the scope are certain TVD inner rings. To constitute an excluded TVD inner ring, the product must have each of the following characteristics: (1) A single continuous curve forming a protrusion or indentation on outer surface, also known as a sine lock, with a height or depth not less than 1.5 millimeters and not exceeding 4.0 millimeters and with a width of at least 10 millimeters as measured across the sine lock from one edge of the curve to the other; [9] (2) a face width of the outer diameter of greater than or equal to 20 millimeters but less than or equal to 80 millimeters; (3) an outside diameter greater than or equal to 101 millimeters but less than or equal to 300 millimeters; and (4) a weight not exceeding 7 kilograms. A TVD inner ring is excluded only if it meets the physical description provided above; merchandise that otherwise meets the description of the scope and does not satisfy the physical description of excluded TVD inner rings is still covered by the scope of this investigation regardless of end use or identification as a TVD inner ring.

The scope also excludes light-duty, fixed-pitch, non-synchronous sheaves (“excludable LDFPN sheaves”) with each of the following characteristics: made from grey iron designated as ASTM (North American specification) Grade 30 or lower, GB/T (Chinese specification) Grade HT200 or lower, DIN (German specification) GG 20 or lower, or EN (European specification) EN-GJL 200 or lower; having no more than two grooves; having a maximum face width of no more than 1.75 inches, where the face width is the width of the part at its outside diameter; having a maximum outside diameter of not more than 18.75 inches; and having no teeth on the outside or datum diameter. Excludable LDFPN sheaves must also either have a maximum straight bore size of 1.6875 inches with a maximum hub diameter of 2.875 inches; or else have a tapered bore measuring 1.625 inches at the large end, a maximum hub diameter of 3.50 inches, a length through tapered bore of 1.0 inches, exactly two tapped holes that are 180 degrees apart, and a 2.0- inch bolt circle on the face of the hub. Excludable LDFPN sheaves more than 6.75 inches in outside diameter must also have an arm or spoke construction.[10] Further, excludable LDFPN sheaves must have a groove profile as indicated in the table below:

Size (belt profile)Outside diameterTop width range of each groove (inches)Maximum height (inches)Angle (°)
MA/AK (A, 3L, 4L)≤5.45 in0.484-0.4990.53134
MA/AK (A, 3L, 4L)>5.45 in. but ≤18.75 in0.499-0.5090.53138
MB/BK (A, B, 4L, 5L)≤7.40 in0.607-0.6180.63234
MB/BK (A, B, 4L, 5L)>7.40 in. but ≤18.75 in0.620-0.6310.63538

In addition to the above characteristics, excludable LDFPN sheaves must also have a maximum weight (pounds-per-piece) as follows: for excludable LDFPN sheaves with one groove and an outside diameter of greater than 4.0 inches but less than or equal to 8.0 inches, the maximum weight is 4.7 pounds; for excludable LDFPN sheaves with two grooves and an outside diameter of greater than 4.0 inches but less than or equal to 8.0 inches, the maximum weight is 8.5 pounds; for excludable LDFPN sheaves with one groove and an outside diameter of greater than 8.0 inches but less than or equal to 12.0 inches, the maximum weight is 8.5 pounds; for excludable LDFPN sheaves with two grooves and an outside diameter of greater than 8.0 inches but less than or equal to 12.0 inches, the maximum weight is 15.0 pounds; for excludable LDFPN sheaves with one groove and an outside diameter of greater than 12.0 inches but less than or equal to 15.0 inches, the maximum weight is 13.3 pounds; for excludable LDFPN sheaves with two grooves and an outside diameter of greater than 12.0 inches but less than or equal to 15.0 inches, the maximum weight is 17.5 pounds; for excludable LDFPN sheaves with one groove and an outside diameter of greater than 15.0 inches but less than or equal to 18.75 inches, the maximum weight is 16.5 pounds; and for excludable LDFPN sheaves with two grooves and an outside diameter of greater than 15.0 inches but less than or equal to 18.75 inches, the maximum weight is 26.5 pounds.

The scope also excludes light-duty, variable-pitch, non-synchronous sheaves with each of the following characteristics: made from grey iron designated as ASTM (North American specification) Grade 30 or lower, GB/T (Chinese specification) Grade HT200 or lower, DIN (German specification) GG 20 or lower, or EN (European specification) EN-GJL 200 or lower; having no more than 2 grooves; having a maximum overall width of less than 2.25 inches with a single groove, or of 3.25 inches or less with two grooves; having a maximum outside diameter of not more than 7.5 inches; having a maximum bore size of 1.625 inches; having either one or two identical, internally-threaded (i.e., with threads on the inside diameter), adjustable (rotating) flange(s) on an externally-threaded hub (i.e., with threads on the outside diameter) that enable(s) the width (opening) of the groove to be changed; and having no teeth on the outside or datum diameter.

The scope also excludes certain IMTDC bushings. An IMTDC bushing is excluded only if it has a tapered angle of greater than or equal to 10 degrees, where the angle is measured between one outside tapered surface and the directly opposing outside tapered surface.

The merchandise covered by this investigation is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (“HTSUS”) subheadings 8483.30.8090, 8483.50.6000, 8483.50.9040, 8483.50.9080, 8483.90.3000, 8483.90.8080.
