It was formally filed on January 21, 2005. The IKEA facility is located at 4104 Industrial Parkway Drive, Lebec (80 acres total; 1.7 million sq. ft. of enclosed space). The facility (approximately 300 employees) may be used under FTZ procedures for warehousing, packaging, labeling, palletization, quality control, recovery/repair, and distribution of home furnishings and accessories. IKEA’s application indicates that approximately 10 to 15 percent of the merchandise handled by the facility is domestically sourced. Zone procedures would exempt IKEA from Customs duty payments on foreign-status merchandise that is reexported. On its domestic shipments, IKEA would be able to defer duty payments until merchandise is shipped from its facility. The company would be able to avoid duty on foreign merchandise which becomes scrap/ waste, estimated at approximately one to two percent of imported products.

(‘‘Tianjin’’), mandatory respondent, Guangling Jinghua Science and Technology Co , Ltd. (‘‘Guangling’’), the sole Section A respondent, and the PRC-wide entity. Critical circumstances do not exist with regard to imports magnesium metal from the PRC for the RSM companies (‘‘RSM’’) 2. 1 The petitioners in this antidumping duty investigation are the U.S. Magnesium LLC, United Steelworkers of America, Local 8319 and Glass, Molders, Pottery, Plastics & Allied Workers International, Local 374 (‘‘petitioners’’). 2 The company reported that ‘‘RSM’’ is the trade name of a group of companies, some of which VerDate jul<14>2003 19:18 Feb 02, 2005 Jkt 205001 Background Petitioners filed a timely allegation of critical circumstances on December 28, 2004, in accord and with section 733(e)(1) of the Act and section 351.206(c)(1) of the Department’s regulations. None of the parties to the proceeding submitted comments in response to this allegation in accord with section 351.301(c) of the Department’s regulations. On January 11, 2005, the Department requested the RSM Companies, Tianjin, and Guangling to report their shipments of subject merchandise to the United States on a monthly basis during the period January 2003 through December 2004. On January 19, 2005, the RSM Companies and Tianjin provided the requested information. Guangling did not respond to the Department’s request for information.3 Period of Investigation The POI is July 1, 2003, through December 31, 2003. This period corresponds to the two most recent fiscal quarters prior to the month of the filing of the petition (February 27, 2003). See Section 351.204(b)(1) of the Department’s regulations. Scope of Investigation The products covered by this investigation are primary and secondary alloy magnesium metal, regardless of chemistry, raw material source, form, shape, or size. Magnesium is a metal or alloy containing by weight primarily the element magnesium. Primary magnesium is produced by decomposing raw materials into magnesium metal. Secondary magnesium is produced by recycling magnesium-based scrap into magnesium metal. The magnesium covered by this investigation includes blends of primary and secondary magnesium. The subject merchandise includes the following alloy magnesium metal products made from primary and/or secondary magnesium including, produced and exported the subject merchandise during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’). RSM reported that the following companies are in the RSM group: Nanjing Yunhai Special Metals Co., Ltd. (‘‘Yunhai Special’’), Nanjing Welbow Metals Co., Ltd. (‘‘Welbow’’), Nanjing Yunhai Magnesium Co., Ltd. (‘‘Yunhai Magnesium’’), Shanxi Wenxi Yunhai Metals Co., Ltd. (‘‘Wenxi Yunhai’’), Shanxi Wenxi Bada Magnesium Co., Ltd. (‘‘Bada Magnesium’’), Yuncheng Wenxi Welfare Magnesium Plant (‘‘Welfare Magnesium), and Nanjing Yunhai Metals Plant (‘‘Yunhai Metals’’). 3 See the memorandum to the file from Laurel LaCivita, Antidumping Investigation of Magnesium Metal from the People’s Republic of China: Shipment Data With Respect to the Critical Circumstances Allegation with Respect to Beijing Guangling Jinghua Science and Technology Co , Ltd., dated January 19, 2005. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 without limitation, magnesium cast into ingots, slabs, rounds, billets, and other shapes, and magnesium ground, chipped, crushed, or machined into raspings, granules, turnings, chips, powder, briquettes, and other shapes; products that contain 50 percent or greater, but less than 99.8 percent, magnesium, by weight, and that have been entered into the United States as conforming to an ‘‘ASTM Specification for Magnesium Alloy’’ 4 and thus are outside the scope of the existing antidumping orders on magnesium from the PRC (generally referred to as ‘‘alloy’’ magnesium). The scope of this investigation excludes the following merchandise: (1) All forms of pure magnesium, including chemical combinations of magnesium and other material(s) in which the pure magnesium content is 50 percent or greater, but less that 99.8 percent, by weight, that do not conform to an ‘‘ASTM Specification for Magnesium Alloy’’ 5; (2) magnesium that is in liquid or molten form; and (3) mixtures containing 90 percent or less magnesium in granular or powder form, by weight, and one or more of certain non-magnesium granular materials to make magnesium-based reagent mixtures, including lime, calcium metal, calcium silicon, calcium carbide, calcium carbonate, carbon, slag coagulants, fluorspar, nephaline syenite, feldspar, alumina (Al203), calcium aluminate, soda ash, hydrocarbons, graphite, coke, silicon, rare earth metals/mischmetal, cryolite, silica/fly ash, magnesium oxide, periclase, ferroalloys, dolomite lime, and colemanite.6 4 The meaning of this term is the same as that used by the American Society for Testing and Materials in its Annual Book of ASTM Standards: Volume 01.02 Aluminum and Magnesium Alloys. 5 This material is already covered by existing antidumping orders. See Antidumping Duty Orders: Pure Magnesium from the People’s Republic of China, the Russian Federation and Ukraine; Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Antidumping Duty Investigation of Pure Magnesium from the Russian Federation, 60 FR 25691 (May 12, 1995); Antidumping Duty Order: Pure Magnesium in Granular Form from the People’s Republic of China, 66 FR 57936 (Nov. 19, 2001). 6 This third exclusion for magnesium-based reagent mixtures is based on the exclusion for reagent mixtures in the 2000–2001 investigations of magnesium from the PRC, Israel, and Russia. See Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Pure Magnesium in Granular Form From the People’s Republic of China, 66 FR 49345 (September 27, 2001); Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Pure Magnesium From Israel, 66 FR 49349 (September 27, 2001); Final Determination of Sales at Not Less Than Fair Value: Pure Magnesium From the Russian Federation, 66 FR 49347 (September 27, 2001). These mixtures are not magnesium alloys because they are not chemically combined in liquid form and cast into the same ingot. E:\FR\FM\03FEN1.SGM 03FEN1
