SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77121 Case History On May 3, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) received a petition on imports of diamond sawblades from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) and the Republic of Korea (‘‘Korea’’) from the Diamond Sawblade Manufacturers’ Coalition (‘‘Petitioner’’) on behalf of the domestic industry and workers producing diamond sawblades. This investigation was initiated on June 21, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations: Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Korea, 70 FR 35625 (June 21, 2005) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). Additionally, in the Initiation Notice, the Department notified parties that it would apply a new process by which exporters and producers may obtain separate–rate status in non–market economy (‘‘NME’’) investigations. The new process requires exporters and producers to submit a separate–rate status application. See Policy Bulletin 05.1: Separate–Rates Practice and Application of Combination Rates in Antidumping Investigations involving Non–Market Economy Countries, (April 5, 2005), (‘‘Policy Bulletin 05.1’’) available at http://ia.ita.doc.gov. However, the standard for eligibility for a separate rate (which is whether a firm can demonstrate an absence of both de jure and de facto governmental control over its export activities) has not changed. Since the initiation of this investigation the following events have occurred. The Department set aside a period for all interested parties to raise issues regarding product coverage. Between September 16, 2005, and November 23, 2005, Petitioner, Ehwa Diamond Industrial Co., Ltd. (‘‘Ehwa’’), and Diamax Industries, Inc., filed comments and rebuttal comments proposing clarifications to the scope of this investigation. On June 21, 2005, the Department requested quantity and value (‘‘Q&V’’) information from a total of twenty–three companies that Petitioner identified as potential producers and/or exporters of diamond sawblades from the PRC. Also on June 21, 2005, the Department sent a letter requesting Q&V information to the China Bureau of Fair Trade for Imports & Exports (‘‘BOFT’’) of the Ministry of Commerce (‘‘MOFCOM’’) requesting that BOFT transmit the letter to all companies who manufacture and export subject merchandise to the United States, or produce the subject merchandise for the companies who were engaged in exporting the subject merchandise to the United States during E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1
