In this rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to impose foreign policy controls on read-out integrated circuits and related ``software'' and ``technology,'' radar for helicopter autonomous landing systems, seismic intrusion detection systems and related ``software'' and ``technology'', and ``technology'' ``required'' for the ``development'' or ``production'' of specified infrared up-conversion devices. The read-out integrated circuits and related ``technology'' are controlled under new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) on the Commerce Control List. An existing ECCN has been amended to control the related ``software'' for those items. New paragraphs have been added to certain existing ECCNs to control radar for helicopter autonomous landing systems, seismic intrusion detection systems, and the ``technology,'' as mentioned, for specified infrared up-conversion devices. Specified existing ``software'' and ``technology'' ECCNs have been amended to apply to helicopter autonomous landing systems and seismic intrusion detection systems. The items are controlled for regional stability reasons Column 1 (RS Column 1) and Column 2 (RS Column 2), and antiterrorism reasons Column 1 (AT Column 1). The Departments of Commerce, State and Defense have determined that imposition of these license requirements protects U.S. national security and foreign policy interests. Specifically, those agencies have determined that the items described in this rule have civilian applications but also warrant immediate controls under the EAR because of their potential military applications.

The Department of Commerce (``Department'') is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires (``OTR tires'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The period of review (``POR'') is September 1, 2012, through August 31, 2013. The review covers the following exporters of subject merchandise: Mandatory respondents Double Coin Holdings Ltd.

We preliminarily find that GTC made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value, Zhongce and Zhongwei are eligible for a separate rate, Double Coin failed to demonstrate eligibility for separate rate status and thus has been included in the PRC-wide entity, and Trelleborg had no shipments during the POR.

The Department invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. No parties commented. Accordingly, our final results remain unchanged from the Preliminary Results.
