Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires From the People's 
Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, Preliminary Determination of No Shipments, and 
Rescission, in Part; 2015-2016

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain 
passenger vehicle and light truck tires (passenger tires) from the 
People's Republic of China (PRC). The period of review (POR) is January 
27, 2015 through July 31, 2016. The administrative review covers 108 
respondents, including four mandatory respondents: Giti Tire Global 
Trading Pte. Ltd. (Giti), which we have preliminarily treated as a 
single entity with four affiliated companies identified below, Qingdao 
Sentury Tire Co., Ltd. (Sentury), which we have preliminarily treated 
as a single entity with two affiliated companies identified below, Best 
Choice International Trade Co., Limited (Best Choice), which withdrew 
its participation from the administrative review and will be treated as 
part of the PRC-wide entity, and Shandong Haohua Tire Co., Ltd. 
(Haohua), which withdrew its participation from the administrative 
review and will be treated as part of the PRC-wide entity. The 
Department preliminarily finds that Giti and Sentury sold subject 
merchandise in the United States at prices below normal value (NV) 
during the POR. In addition, we preliminarily determine that 65 
companies/company groupings have established their eligibility for a 
separate rate, and that ten companies under review made no shipments of 
subject merchandise during the POR. Finally, we are rescinding this 
administrative review with respect to Cooper Tire & Rubber Company/
Cooper Chengshan (Shandong) Tire Co., Ltd./Cooper (Kunshan) Tire Co., 
Ltd. (collectively Cooper). Interested parties are invited to comment 
on these preliminary results.

DATES: September 7, 2017.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For a complete description of the scope of the order, see 
``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review of Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light 
Truck Tires from the People's Republic of China, Preliminary 
Determination of No Shipments; and Rescission, in part; 2015-2016,'' 
(August 31, 2017) (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

[[Page 42282]]

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on an analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
information, and comments provided by interested parties, the 
Department preliminarily determines that ten companies under review, 
Highpoint Trading, Ltd., Federal Tire (Jiangxi), Ltd., Federal 
Corporation, Weihai Ping'an Tyre Co., Ltd., Qingdao Free Trade Zone 
Full-World International Trading Co., Ltd., Seatex PTE. Ltd., Wendeng 
Sanfeng Tyre Co., Ltd., Shandong Hawk International Rubber Industry 
Co., Ltd., Qingdao Honghua Tyre Factory (Honghua), and Zenith Holding 
(HK) Limited each had no shipments during the POR. For additional 
information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.
    Consistent with an announced refinement to its assessment practice 
in non-market economy (NME) cases, the Department is not rescinding 
this review, in part, but intends to complete the review with respect 
to the companies for which it has preliminarily found no shipments and 
issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011) and 
the ``Assessment Rates'' section, below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party or parties 
that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the 
publication date of the notice of initiation of the requested review. 
The United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, 
Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, AFL-CIO, CLC 
(the petitioner) and Cooper withdrew their requests for an 
administrative review with respect to Cooper within 90 days of the 
publication date of the notice of initiation. No other parties 
requested an administrative review of the order with respect to Cooper. 
Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department is 
rescinding this review of the AD order on passenger tires from the PRC 
with respect to Cooper.

Preliminary Affiliation and Single Entity Determination

    The Department continues to find that Giti and the following four 
companies are affiliated pursuant to section 771(33)(E) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and should be treated as a single 
entity pursuant to 19 CFR 351.401(f): Giti Tire (USA) Ltd. (Giti USA), 
Giti Radial Tire (Anhui) Company Ltd. (Giti Anhui), Giti Tire (Fujian) 
Company Ltd. (Giti Fujian), and Giti Tire (Hualin) Company Ltd. (Giti 
Hualin) (collectively Giti). This preliminary finding is based on 
record evidence showing that the facts and analysis relied upon by the 
Department in the investigation of passenger tires from the PRC 
continue to be applicable during the instant POR. For additional 
information, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum at the ``Single Entity 
Treatment'' section.
    Based on information on the record of the instant review, the 
Department preliminarily finds that Sentury, Sentury Tire USA Inc 
(Sentury USA), and Sentury (Hong Kong) Trading Co., Limited (Sentury 
HK) are affiliated pursuant to section 771(33)(E) of the Act, and 
should be treated as a single entity pursuant to 19 CFR 351.401(f).\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See the Preliminary Decision Memorandum at ``Single Entity 
Treatment;'' see also Memorandum, ``Preliminary Analysis Memorandum 
for Qingdao Sentury Tire Co., Ltd.'' (Sentury Preliminary Analysis 
Memorandum) (August 31, 2017) at ``Single Entity Analysis'' section.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    The Department preliminarily determines that the information placed 
on the record by Giti and Sentury, as well as by the other companies 
listed in the rate table in the ``Preliminary Results of Review'' 
section below, demonstrates that these companies are entitled to 
separate rate status. The Department calculated weighted-average 
dumping margins for Giti and Sentury, and consistent with our practice, 
calculated a rate for the companies to which it granted separate rate 
status, but which it did not individually examine, based on publicly 
ranged sales values reported by Giti and Sentury.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Memorandum, ``Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck 
Tires from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Calculation 
of the Margin for Respondents Not Selected for Individual 
Examination,'' (August 31, 2016) (Preliminary Separate Rate 
Calculation Memorandum); see also Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 
16-17.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition, the Department preliminarily determines that certain 
companies have not demonstrated their entitlement to separate rate 
status because, (1) they withdrew their participation from the 
administrative review; or (2) they did not rebut the presumption of de 
jure or de facto government control of their operations. See Appendix 2 
of this Federal Register notice for a complete list of companies not 
receiving a separate rate. In addition, five companies: Poplar Tire 
International Co. Ltd.; Qingdao Yongdao International Trade Co. Ltd.; 
Shandong Hongsheng Rubber Co. Ltd.; Shandong Xinghongyuan Tyre Co. Ltd; 
and Shanghai Durotyre International Trading Co. Ltd., filed separate 
rate applications even though an administrative review was not 
requested for or initiated on their behalf. Because these companies are 
not subject to this review, the Department is not considering their 
applications for separate-rate status.
    The Department is treating the companies for which it did not grant 
separate rate status as part of the PRC-wide entity. Because no party 
requested a review of the PRC-wide entity, the entity is not under 
review, and the entity's rate (i.e., 87.99 percent) \5\ is not subject 
to change.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the 
People's Republic of China: Amended Final Affirmative Antidumping 
Duty Determination and Antidumping Duty Order; and Amended Final 
Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Countervailing 
Duty Order, 80 FR 47902, 47906 (August 10, 2015) (Order).
    \6\ For additional information regarding the Department's 
separate rate determinations, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Act. The Department preliminarily determines that 
Giti's and Sentury's reported U.S. sales were either export price (EP) 
or constructed export price (CEP). We calculated EP and CEP sales in 
accordance with section 772 of the Act. Given that the PRC is an NME 
country, within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, the 
Department calculated NV in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying the 
preliminary results of this review, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is made available to the 
public 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 found at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and the electronic versions of 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of 
topics

included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is provided in Appendix 
1 to this notice.

Adjustments for Countervailable Subsidies

    The Department has preliminarily granted Giti and the separate rate 
recipients an adjustment for countervailable domestic subsidies 
pursuant to section 777A(f) of the Act. In addition, the Department 
preliminarily finds that Sentury does not qualify for an adjustment for 
countervailable domestic subsidies.

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department preliminarily determines that the following 
weighted-average dumping margins exist for the POR:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                       Weighted-average
                      Exporter                          dumping margin
                                                           (percent)

(July 6, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Unless otherwise extended, the Department intends to issue the 
final results of this administrative review, which will include the 
results of its analysis of issues raised in any briefs, within 120 days 
of publication of these preliminary results of review, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results of this review, the Department 
will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review.\14\ The Department intends 
to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication 
date of the final results of this review. For each individually 
examined respondent in this review whose weighted-average dumping 
margin in the final results of review is not zero or de minimis (i.e., 
less than 0.5 percent), the Department intends to calculate importer-
specific assessment rates, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\15\ 
Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, the Department 
intends to calculate importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates by 
aggregating the amount of dumping calculated for all U.S. sales to the 
importer, and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the 
sales to the importer.\16\ Where the importer did not report entered 
values, the Department intends to calculate an importer-specific 
assessment rate by dividing the amount of dumping for reviewed sales to 
the importer by the total sales quantity associated with those 
transactions. Where an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is 
not zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the 
appropriate duties at the time of liquidation. Where either the 
respondent's weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 
an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis, 
the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \15\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted 
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) 
(Final Modification).
    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \17\ See Final Modification, 77 FR at 8103.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to Departmental practice, for entries that were not 
reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by an exporter 
individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the rate for the PRC-wide entity.\18\ 
Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter under 
review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended 
entries that entered under that exporter's CBP case number will be 
liquidated at the rate for the PRC-wide entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), for a full 
discussion of this practice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We are rescinding this review for Cooper. Our normal practice is to 
instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties at the rates equal to the 
cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of 
entry, or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption, in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). However, Cooper's entries during the POR are 
subject to an injunction. We intend to issue the appropriate 
liquidation instructions once the injunction on Cooper's POR entries 
has been lifted.
    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, the final 
results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of 
antidumping duties on POR entries, and for future deposits of estimated 
antidumping duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The Department will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit for 
antidumping duties equal to the weighted-average amount by which NV 
exceeds U.S. price. The following cash deposit requirements will be 
effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative 
review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse,

[[Page 42285]]

for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin established in the final results of this review 
(except, if the rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then

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 and/or countervailing 
duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the 
Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties and/
or countervailing duties has occurred, and the subsequent assessment of 
double antidumping duties and/or an increase in the amount of 
antidumping duties by the amount of the countervailing duties.

sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and

    Dated: August 31, 2017.
