On July 16, 2004, Wuhan Bee Healthy Co., Ltd. (Wuhan Bee) filed a lawsuit challenging the final results. On June 10, 2005, the CIT remanded the Department’s decision to rely on Indian Import Statistics from the Monthly Statistics of Foreign Trade of India (MSFTI) value as a surrogate for steam coal rather than the Tata Energy Research Institute’s (TERI) Energy Data Directory & Yearbook for 2001/2002 domestic coal prices for steam coal placed on the record by Wuhan Bee. See Wuhan Bee Healthy Co., Ltd. v. United States, Slip Op. 05–65 (CIT June 10, 2005). In accordance with the CIT’s remand order, the Department filed its remand results on September 7, 2005. In those remand results, the Department used the domestic coal prices for steam coal as reported in the TERI data as a surrogate value for the steam coal input and recalculated Wuhan Bee’s margin accordingly. See Final Results Pursuant to Remand for Wuhan Bee Healthy Co., Ltd. v. United States, Slip Op. 05–65 published on Import Administration’s website (http://ia.ita.doc.gov). On November 2, 2005, the CIT affirmed the Department’s remand redetermination. See Wuhan Bee Healthy Co., Ltd. v. United States, Slip Op. 05–142 (CIT 2005). There was no appeal of the CIT’s decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit filed within the appeal period. Therefore, the CIT’s decision is now final and conclusive. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Amendment to Final Results We are now amending the final results of this new shipper review to reflect the final and conclusive decision of the CIT. The changes to our calculations with respect to Wuhan Bee resulted in a change in the weighted– average margin from 32.84 percent to 32.63 percent for the period of review. The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate entries of honey from the People’s Republic of China produced by, exported to, or imported into the United States by Wuhan Bee during the review period at the assessment rates the Department calculated for these amended final results of review. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended.

Reasons: The foreign article is a compatible ancillary device for a 500 MHz 200 mm room– temperature bore magnetic resonance spectrometer under development at MIT.

Reasons: The foreign instrument is a compatible ancillary device which is intended to be used to develop a fast, high–resolution, x–ray powder diffraction apparatus using a beamline facility (Beamline 33– BM) at the Advanced Photon Source of Argonne National Laboratory. The detector is capable of detecting and storing x–ray intensity information proportionally over a wide dynamical range of at least five orders of magnitude with high resolution, high sensitivity and low noise (high S/N ratio). Complex algorithms are not required to extract data from the x–ray detector. Since it is curved, diffracted x–rays are incident normal to it and thus do not induce any distortion errors, while retaining the fidelity of the diffraction pattern.
