Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 100 / Wednesday, May 25, 2005 / Notices SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 27, 2000, the Department published the final determination of sales at less than fair value of stainless steel butt–weld pipe fittings from the Philippines. See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Stainless Steel Butt– Weld Pipe Fittings From the Philippines, 65 FR 81823 (December 27, 2000). Respondent Tung Fong Industrial Co., Ltd. (Tung Fong) filed a lawsuit challenging this determination. On April 7, 2004, the CIT issued an Order and Opinion remanding two issues to the Department. See Tung Fong Industrial Co., Inc. v. United States, 318 F. Supp. 2d 1321 (CIT April 7, 2004) (Tung Fong I). Specifically, the CIT ordered the Department to (1) reconsider the adequacy of the domestic manufacturers’ petition, and the consequence of the falsity of their allegations of home market sales by Tung Fong; and (2) to reconsider its decision to resort to facts available in calculating Tung Fong’s antidumping margin (and, if appropriate, to reevaluate the particular adverse facts available it selected). See Tung Fong I, 318 F. Supp 2d 1321 at 1338. In accordance with the CIT’s order in Tung Fong I, the Department filed its remand results on September 7, 2004. On March 23, 2005, the CIT affirmed the Department’s final results of remand redetermination in their entirety. See Tung Fong II. Accordingly, we are amending our final determination of sales at less than fair value. Amendment to Final Determination The CIT affirmed our final results of redetermination pursuant to Court remand on March 23, 2005. Given the particular circumstances of this case, we consider that the case is now final and conclusive. We are now amending the final determination of sales at less than fair value. We determine that a weighted–average margin of 7.59 percent exists for Tung Fong for the period of investigation, which was October 1, 1998, through September 30, 1999. No entries were enjoined during the pendency of this litigation, and no reviews of entries by any party have been requested or conducted since the less than fair value investigation. Accordingly, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to require a cash deposit of 7.59 percent for all entries of subject merchandise manufactured by Tung Fong beginning April 2, 2005. Furthermore, because the margin we assigned to ‘‘all others’’ in the final VerDate jul<14>2003 17:52 May 24, 2005 Jkt 205001 determination was based upon the margin we calculated for Tung Fong, we will also instruct CBP that the same cash deposit requirements are applicable to ‘‘all others’’ as are applicable to Tung Fong. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 735(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Dated: May 18, 2005. Joseph A. Spetrini, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

Weave: Weight: Width: Finish: BACKGROUND: The AGOA and the CBTPA provide for quota- and duty-free treatment for qualifying textile and apparel products. Such treatment is generally limited to products manufactured from yarns and fabrics formed in the United States or a beneficiary country. The AGOA and the CBTPA also provide for quota- and duty-free treatment for apparel articles that are both cut (or knit-to-shape) and sewn or otherwise assembled in one or more beneficiary countries from fabric or yarn that is not formed in the United States, if it has been determined that such fabric or yarn cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. In Executive Order No. 13191, the President delegated to CITA the authority to determine whether yarns or fabrics cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner under the AGOA and the CBTPA and directed CITA to establish procedures to ensure appropriate public participation in any such determination. On March 6, 2001, CITA published procedures that it will follow in considering requests. (66 FR 13502). On May 18, 2005 the Chairman of CITA received a petition from Columbia Sportswear Company alleging that certain woven bamboo/cotton fabric, of specifications detailed below, classified in HTSUS subheading 5516.42.0022, for use in apparel articles, cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner and requesting quota- and dutyfree treatment under the AGOA and the CBTPA for apparel articles that are both cut and sewn in one or more beneficiary countries from such fabrics.

Also relevant is whether other fabrics that are supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner are substitutable for these fabrics for purposes of the intended use. Comments must be received no later than June 9, 2005. Interested persons are invited to submit six copies of such comments or information to the Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, room 3100, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th and Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20230. If a comment alleges that these fabrics can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner, CITA will closely review any supporting documentation, such as a signed statement by a manufacturer of the fabric stating that it produces the fabric that is the subject of the request, including the quantities that can be supplied and the time necessary to fill an order, as well as any relevant information regarding past production. CITA will protect any business confidential information that is marked ‘‘business confidential’’ from disclosure to the full extent permitted by law. CITA generally considers specific details, such as quantities and lead times for providing the subject product as business confidential. However, information such as the names of domestic manufacturers who were contacted, questions concerning the capability to manufacture the subject product, and the responses thereto should be available for public review to ensure proper public participation in the process.
