We received rebuttal briefs from CFP/ Three Star, SFTC, and Rongxin on February 24, 2005, and from the domestic interested parties on February 25, 20052. On May 19, 2005, we rejected Rongxin’s rebuttal brief because it contained new argument. Rongxin resubmitted its rebuttal brief on May 23, 2005, in accordance with the deadline set by the Department. On May 26, 2005, we issued a supplemental questionnaire and requested comments from CFP/Three Star on documents we placed on the record from a prior review. CFP/Three Star submitted its response and comments on June 7, 2005. The domestic interested parties submitted comments on CFP/Three Star’s submission on June 15, 2005. As described in more detail below in comment 1, on June 15, 2005, the Department placed an additional document on the record of this segment of the proceeding and requested that CFP/Three Star and the domestic interested parties submit comments by June 20, 2005. CFP/Three Star and the domestic interested parties submitted comments on this document on June 20, 2005. covered in the above–referenced patent, thereby having odors distinct from those that may emanate from pencils lacking the scent infusion. Also excluded from the scope of the order are pencils with all of the following physical characteristics: 1) length: 13.5 or more inches; 2) sheath diameter: not less than one–and-one quarter inches at any point (before sharpening); and 3) core length: not more than 15 percent of the length of the pencil. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Scope of the Order Imports covered by this order are shipments of certain cased pencils of any shape or dimension (except as noted below) which are writing and/or drawing instruments that feature cores of graphite or other materials, encased in wood and/or man–made materials, whether or not decorated and whether or not tipped (e.g., with erasers, etc.) in any fashion, and either sharpened or unsharpened. The pencils subject to the order are classified under subheading 9609.10.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Specifically excluded from the scope of the order are mechanical pencils, cosmetic pencils, pens, non–cased crayons (wax), pastels, charcoals, chalks, and pencils produced under U.S. patent number 6,217,242, from paper infused with scents by the means Analysis of Comments Received Order on Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China - Affiliation and Collapsing (December 30, 2004). 2 The Department closed its Washington, D.C. facilities prior to 5:00 PM on February 24, 2005, due to inclement weather before the domestic interested parties were able to file their rebuttal brief.

(TCW) because TCW reported it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. See the Preliminary Results; see also; TCW’s February 19, 2004, response to the Department’s questionnaire. TCW’s claim that it did not export subject merchandise during the POR is supported by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data and entry documents. Moreover, there is no evidence on the record of this segment of the proceeding indicating that TCW exported subject merchandise during the POR. Therefore, we are rescinding this review with respect to TCW. All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this administrative review are addressed in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’ (Decision Memorandum) from Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to Joseph A. Spetrini, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated July 11, 2005, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues which parties have raised and to which we have responded, all of which are in the Decision Memorandum, is attached to this notice as an Appendix.

PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made changes in the margin calculations for CFP/Three Star, SFTC and Rongxin. The specific calculation changes made can be found in our calculation memoranda dated July 11, 2005. These changes are listed below. CFP/Three Star and SFTC We collapsed CFP with its subsidiaries Shanghai First Writing Instrument Co., Ltd., (First), Shanghai Great Wall Pencil Co., Ltd. (Great Wall), and China First Pencil Fang Zheng Co., Ltd. (Fang Zheng). We converted transportation expenses from Indian rupees to U.S. dollars in the calculation of normal value. We also corrected the calculation of cost of manufacturing in the computer program to exclude packing. In addition, we corrected the computer program to correctly calculate slat consumption for ordinary size pencils. Final Results of Review We determine that the following weighted–average, ad valorem, percentage margins exist for the period December 1, 2002, through November 30, 2003: Exporter/Manufacturer CFP/Three Star/First/ Great Wall/Fang Zheng ........................ SFTC ............................ Rongxin ......................... PRC Wide–Rate ........... Margin (percent) 0.61 13.25 22.63 114.90 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of this notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of pencils from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) the cash deposit rates for the reviewed companies will be the rates shown above; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company–specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) the cash deposit rate for all other PRC exporters will be 114.90 percent; and 4) the cash deposit rate for non–PRC exporters will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that exporter. These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. E:\FR\FM\22JYN1.SGM 22JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 140 / Friday, July 22, 2005 / Notices Assessment The Department will determine, and CBP will assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with these final results of review. For the companies subject to this review, we calculated exporter–specific assessment rates because there is no information on the record which identifies the importers of record. Specifically, for CFP/Three Star/First/Great Wall/Fang Zheng, SFTC and Rongxin, we calculated duty assessment rates for subject merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total quantity of those sales. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of review. Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 C.F.R. 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under an APO in accordance with 19 C.F.R. 351.305. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.

However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 245–day time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days and the time limit for the final determination to 180 days (or 300 days if the Department does not extend the time limit for the preliminary determination) from the date of publication of the preliminary determination. We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit due to complex issues relating to the calculation of certain surrogate values. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 105 days until no later than December 16, 2005.

Scope of the Order

    Imports covered by this order are shipments of certain cased 
pencils of any shape or dimension (except as noted below) which are 
writing and/or drawing instruments that feature cores of graphite or 
other materials, encased in wood and/or man-made materials, whether or 
not decorated and whether or not tipped (e.g., with erasers, etc.) in 
any fashion, and either sharpened or unsharpened. The pencils subject 
to the order are classified under subheading 9609.10.00 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Specifically 
excluded from the scope of the order are mechanical pencils, cosmetic 
pencils, pens, non-cased crayons (wax), pastels, charcoals, chalks, and 
pencils produced under U.S. patent number 6,217,242, from paper infused 
with scents by the means covered in the above-referenced patent, 
thereby having odors distinct from those that may emanate from pencils 
lacking the scent infusion. Also excluded from the scope of the order 
are pencils with all of the following physical characteristics: 1) 
length: 13.5 or more inches; 2) sheath diameter: not less than one-and-
one quarter inches at any point (before sharpening); and 3) core 
length: not more than 15 percent of the length of the pencil.
    Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and 
customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is 
dispositive.

Partial Rescission

    The Department is rescinding this review with respect to Tianjin 
Custom Wood Processing Co., Ltd. (TCW) because TCW reported it did not 
export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. See the 
Preliminary Results; see also; TCW's February 19, 2004, response to the 
Department's questionnaire. TCW's claim that it did not export subject 
merchandise during the POR is supported by U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) data and entry documents. Moreover, there is no 
evidence on the record of this segment of the proceeding indicating 
that TCW exported subject merchandise during the POR. Therefore, we are 
rescinding this review with respect to TCW.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this administrative review are addressed in the ``Issues and Decision 
Memorandum'' (Decision Memorandum) from Barbara E. Tillman, Acting 
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to Joseph A. 
Spetrini, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated 
July 11, 2005, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the 
issues which parties have raised and to which we have responded, all of 
which are in the Decision Memorandum, is attached to this notice as an 
Appendix. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised 
in this review and the corresponding recommendations in this public 
memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, room B-099 of 
the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete 
version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on Import 
Administration's Web site at www.ia.ita.doc.gov.frn The paper copy and 
the electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in 
content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made 
changes in the margin calculations for CFP/Three Star, SFTC and 
Rongxin. The specific calculation changes made can be found in our 
calculation memoranda dated July 11, 2005. These changes are listed 
below.

CFP/Three Star and SFTC

    We collapsed CFP with its subsidiaries Shanghai First Writing 
Instrument Co., Ltd., (First), Shanghai Great Wall Pencil Co., Ltd. 
(Great Wall), and China First Pencil Fang Zheng Co., Ltd. (Fang Zheng). 
We converted transportation expenses from Indian rupees to U.S. dollars 
in the calculation of normal value. We also corrected the calculation 
of cost of manufacturing in the computer program to exclude packing. In 
addition, we corrected the computer program to correctly calculate slat 
consumption for ordinary size pencils.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average, ad valorem, 
percentage margins exist for the period December 1, 2002, through 
November 30, 2003:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Exporter/Manufacturer                  Margin (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
CFP/Three Star/First/Great Wall/Fang Zheng..........                0.61
SFTC................................................               13.25
Rongxin.............................................               22.63
PRC Wide-Rate.......................................              114.90
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this notice of final results of administrative review 
for all shipments of pencils from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as 
provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) the cash deposit rates 
for the reviewed companies will be the rates shown above; (2) for 
previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, that 
have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 
company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) the 
cash deposit rate for all other PRC exporters will be 114.90 percent; 
and 4) the cash deposit rate for non-PRC exporters will be the rate 
applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that exporter.
    These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until publication 
of the final results of the next administrative review.

[[Page 42303]]

Assessment

    The Department will determine, and CBP will assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with these final results of review. For the companies subject to this 
review, we calculated exporter-specific assessment rates because there 
is no information on the record which identifies the importers of 
record. Specifically, for CFP/Three Star/First/Great Wall/Fang Zheng, 
SFTC and Rongxin, we calculated duty assessment rates for subject 
merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping 
duties calculated for the examined sales to the total quantity of those 
sales. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of 
review.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 C.F.R. 351.402(f) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation
