See Large Newspaper Printing Presses and Components Thereof, Whether Assembled or Unassembled, from Japan: Initiation of Changed Circumstances Review, 70 FR 24514 (May 10, 2005) (Notice of Initiation). As detailed in our Notice of Initiation, evidence was presented in that court proceeding demonstrating that TKS intentionally provided false information regarding its sale to the Dallas Morning News (DMN), the subject of the Department’s 1997– 1998 administrative review. On September 13, 2005, the Department published a notice of preliminary results of changed circumstances review in which it preliminarily determined that it was appropriate to take the following course of action in order to protect the integrity of the Department’s proceedings: (1) Revise TKS’ margin for the 1997–1998 review to apply a rate of 59.67 percent based on adverse facts available, pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act; (2) rescind the company–specific revocation of the antidumping duty order for TKS because TKS no longer qualifies for revocation based on three consecutive administrative reviews resulting in zero dumping margins under 19 CFR 351.222(b); and (3) reconsider the sunset review which resulted in the revocation of the entire order, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Large Newspaper Printing Presses and Components Thereof, Whether Assembled or Unassembled, From Japan: Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review, 70 FR 54019, 54023 (September 13, 2005) (Preliminary Results). The interested parties submitted case and rebuttal briefs on October 20 and 27, 2005, respectively. Also in October 2005, several parties submitted letters addressing the preliminary results, including newspaper publishers The Washington Post and North Jersey Media Group, Inc. A public hearing and a closed hearing were held on November 15, 2005. On January 26, 2006, we invited comments on the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit in Goss Int’l Corp. v. Man Roland Druckmaschinen Aktiengesellschaft, No. 04–2604, 2006 U.S. App. LEXIS 1569 (8th Cir. Jan. 23, 2006), affirming the decision of the Iowa district court in Goss Int’l. Goss International PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Corporation, TKS, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. filed comments on January 31, 2006. Scope of the Changed Circumstances Review The products covered by this changed circumstances review are large newspaper printing presses, including press systems, press additions and press components, whether assembled or unassembled, whether complete or incomplete, that are capable of printing or otherwise manipulating a roll of paper more than two pages across. A page is defined as a newspaper broadsheet page in which the lines of type are printed perpendicular to the running of the direction of the paper or a newspaper tabloid page with lines of type parallel to the running of the direction of the paper. In addition to press systems, the scope of the review includes the five press system components. They are: (1) A printing unit, which is any component that prints in monocolor, spot color and/or process (full) color; (2) a reel tension paster (RTP), which is any component that feeds a roll of paper more than two newspaper broadsheet pages in width into a subject printing unit; (3) a folder, which is a module or combination of modules capable of cutting, folding, and/or delivering the paper from a roll or rolls of newspaper broadsheet paper more than two pages in width into a newspaper format; (4) conveyance and access apparatus capable of manipulating a roll of paper more than two newspaper broadsheet pages across through the production process and which provides structural support and access; and (5) a computerized control system, which is any computer equipment and/or software designed specifically to control, monitor, adjust, and coordinate the functions and operations of large newspaper printing presses or press components. A press addition is comprised of a union of one or more of the press components defined above and the equipment necessary to integrate such components into an existing press system. Because of their size, LNPP systems, press additions, and press components are typically shipped either partially assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and are assembled and/or completed prior to and/or during the installation process in the United States. Any of the five components, or collection of components, the use of which is to fulfill a contract for LNPP systems, press additions, or press components, regardless of degree of E:\FR\FM\08MRN1.SGM 08MRN1 erjones on PROD1PC68 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 45 / Wednesday, March 8, 2006 / Notices assembly and/or degree of combination with non–subject elements before or after importation, is included in the scope of this review. Also included in the scope are elements of a LNPP system, addition or component, which taken altogether, constitute at least 50 percent of the cost of manufacture of any of the five major LNPP components of which they are a part. For purposes of the review, the following definitions apply irrespective of any different definition that may be found in customs rulings, U.S. customs law or the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS): (1) The term ‘‘unassembled’’ means fully or partially unassembled or disassembled; and (2) the term ‘‘incomplete’’ means lacking one or more elements with which the LNPP is intended to be equipped in order to fulfill a contract for a LNPP system, addition or component. This scope does not cover spare or replacement parts. Spare or replacement parts imported pursuant to a LNPP contract, which are not integral to the original start–up and operation of the LNPP, and are separately identified and valued in a LNPP contract, whether or not shipped in combination with covered merchandise, are excluded from the scope of this review. Used presses are also not subject to this scope. Used presses are those that have been previously sold in an arm’s–length transaction to a purchaser that used them to produce newspapers in the ordinary course of business. Also excluded from the scope are elements and components of LNPP systems, and additions thereto, which feature a 22–inch cut–off, 50–inch web width and a rated speed no greater than 75,000 copies per hour.

Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the review is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs submitted by parties to this proceeding are listed in the appendix to this notice and addressed in the Decision Memorandum hereby adopted by this notice. The Decision Memorandum is on file in room B–099 of the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the World Wide Web at https://ia.ita.doc.gov. The paper and electronic versions of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Results We affirm our decision to apply an adverse facts available rate of 59.67 percent to TKS in the 1997–1998 administrative review under section 776(b) of the Act as a result of TKS’ misconduct during this review. For a full discussion of the application of facts available and adverse inferences, see the Preliminary Results, 70 FR at 54021–23, and the Decision Memorandum accompanying this notice at Comment 5. This rate was corroborated at the preliminary results and we have uncovered no new information since the preliminary results that warrants modification of our analysis. See also AFA Rate Selection Memorandum dated September 6, 2005. In addition, because the rate for the 1997–1998 administrative review is no longer zero, TKS no longer qualifies for revocation of the antidumping duty order based on three consecutive administrative reviews resulting in zero dumping margins, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222(b). Therefore, we are rescinding the revocation with respect to TKS and reinstating the order with respect to TKS from September 1, 2000, through September 3, 2001, the day before the effective date of the sunset revocation. See Comment 2 in the accompanying Decision Memorandum. Furthermore, upon the completion of this review, we will reopen for reconsideration the sunset review that resulted in E:\FR\FM\08MRN1.SGM 08MRN1 11592 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 45 / Wednesday, March 8, 2006 / Notices revocation of this order. We will conduct the sunset review following the procedures outlined in section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218. See Comment 3 in the accompanying Decision Memorandum. This notice serves as advance notification that we will reopen a sunset review approximately 30 days after publication of these final results. This advance notification is not required by statute but is provided as a service to the international trading community. We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in accordance with sections 751(b) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216. Dated: March 1, 2006. David M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:53 Mar 07, 2006 Jkt 208001 Background In August 2003, the International Trade Commission (‘‘Commission’’) determined that an industry in the United States was materially injured by reason of subsidized imports of dynamic random access memory semiconductors (‘‘DRAMS’’) and DRAM modules from the Republic of Korea (‘‘Korea’’). DRAMS and DRAM Modules from Korea, Inv. No. 701–TA–431 (Final), USITC Pub. 3616 (Aug. 2003) (‘‘Final Injury Determination’’). On August 11, 2003, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published a countervailing duty order on DRAMS from Korea. See Notice of Countervailing Duty Order: Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors from the Republic of Korea, 68 FR 47546 (Aug. 11, 2003) (‘‘CVD Order’’). The Government of Korea subsequently requested dispute resolution at the World Trade Organization (‘‘WTO’’) to consider, inter alia, its claims that the Final Injury Determination was inconsistent with the WTO Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures (‘‘SCM Agreement’’). The matter was called ‘‘United States – Countervailing Duty Investigation on Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors (DRAMS) From Korea,’’ WT/DS296, and was reviewed by a WTO panel. In its final report, the panel found, inter alia, that one aspect of the Commission’s Final Injury Determination was not in conformity with the obligations of the United States under the SCM Agreement. The United States did not appeal this finding, although it appealed other aspects of the panel report. On July 20, 2005, the WTO Dispute Settlement Body (‘‘DSB’’) adopted the panel report, as modified by the Appellate Body. After following the preliminary procedures required under section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (‘‘URAA’’), by letter dated October 7, 2005, the United States Trade Representative (‘‘USTR’’) requested that the Commission issue a determination under section 129(a)(4) of the URAA that would render the Commission’s action in the DRAMS investigation not inconsistent with the recommendations and rulings of the DSB. In February 2006, the Commission issued such a determination, elaborating upon and clarifying the one aspect of the Final Injury Determination found to be WTO– inconsistent, and continued to determine that the U.S. industry producing DRAMS and DRAM modules was materially injured by reason of PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 subsidized imports from Korea. DRAMS and DRAM Modules from Korea, Inv. No. 701–TA–431 (Sec. 129), USITC Pub. 3839 (Feb. 2006). USTR reviewed the Commission’s determination under section 129 of the URAA and consulted with the Congressional committees as provided in section 129(a)(5) of the URAA. By letter dated March 1, 2006, USTR notified the Department of the Commission’s determination and requested that it be implemented. Amendment to Countervailing Duty Order on Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors From the Republic of Korea As described above, by letter dated March 1, 2006, USTR notified the Department that the Commission has issued a determination pursuant to section 129 of the URAA, that renders the Commission’s Final Injury Determination, under section 705(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, consistent with the recommendations and rulings of the DSB. In its section 129 determination the Commission continued to find that the domestic industry producing DRAMS and DRAM modules was materially injured by reason of subsidized imports from Korea. Also, pursuant to section 129 of the URAA, USTR requested that the Department implement the Commission’s determination. Consequently, the Department hereby amends the countervailing duty order on DRAMS from Korea to reflect the issuance and implementation of the above–referenced determination under section 129 of the URAA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 10, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) self-
initiated a changed circumstances review of large newspaper printing 
presses and components thereof, whether assembled or unassembled 
(LNPPs), from Japan, to consider information contained in a recent 
federal court decision, Goss International Corp. v. Tokyo Kikai 
Seisakusho, Ltd., 321 F.Supp.2d 1039 (N.D. Iowa 2004) (Goss Int'l). See 
Large Newspaper Printing Presses and Components Thereof, Whether 
Assembled or Unassembled, from Japan: Initiation of Changed 
Circumstances Review, 70 FR 24514 (May 10, 2005) (Notice of 
Initiation). As detailed in our Notice of Initiation, evidence was 
presented in that court proceeding demonstrating that TKS intentionally 
provided false information regarding its sale to the Dallas Morning 
News (DMN), the subject of the Department's 1997-1998 administrative 
review.
    On September 13, 2005, the Department published a notice of 
preliminary results of changed circumstances review in which it 
preliminarily determined that it was appropriate to take the following 
course of action in order to protect the integrity of the Department's 
proceedings: (1) Revise TKS' margin for the 1997-1998 review to apply a 
rate of 59.67 percent based on adverse facts available, pursuant to 
section 776(b) of the Act; (2) rescind the company-specific revocation 
of the antidumping duty order for TKS because TKS no longer qualifies 
for revocation based on three consecutive administrative reviews 
resulting in zero dumping margins under 19 CFR 351.222(b); and (3) 
reconsider the sunset review which resulted in the revocation of the 
entire order, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Large 
Newspaper Printing Presses and Components Thereof, Whether Assembled or 
Unassembled, From Japan: Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances 
Review, 70 FR 54019, 54023 (September 13, 2005) (Preliminary Results).
    The interested parties submitted case and rebuttal briefs on 
October 20 and 27, 2005, respectively. Also in October 2005, several 
parties submitted letters addressing the preliminary results, including 
newspaper publishers The Washington Post and North Jersey Media Group, 
Inc. A public hearing and a closed hearing were held on November 15, 
2005.
    On January 26, 2006, we invited comments on the decision of the 
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit in Goss Int'l Corp. v. Man 
Roland Druckmaschinen Aktiengesellschaft, No. 04-2604, 2006 U.S. App. 
LEXIS 1569 (8\th\ Cir. Jan. 23, 2006), affirming the decision of the 
Iowa district court in Goss Int'l. Goss International Corporation, TKS, 
and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. filed comments on January 31, 
2006.

Scope of the Changed Circumstances Review

    The products covered by this changed circumstances review are large 
newspaper printing presses, including press systems, press additions 
and press components, whether assembled or unassembled, whether 
complete or incomplete, that are capable of printing or otherwise 
manipulating a roll of paper more than two pages across. A page is 
defined as a newspaper broadsheet page in which the lines of type are 
printed perpendicular to the running of the direction of the paper or a 
newspaper tabloid page with lines of type parallel to the running of 
the direction of the paper.
    In addition to press systems, the scope of the review includes the 
five press system components. They are: (1) A printing unit, which is 
any component that prints in monocolor, spot color and/or process 
(full) color; (2) a reel tension paster (RTP), which is any component 
that feeds a roll of paper more than two newspaper broadsheet pages in 
width into a subject printing unit; (3) a folder, which is a module or 
combination of modules capable of cutting, folding, and/or delivering 
the paper from a roll or rolls of newspaper broadsheet paper more than 
two pages in width into a newspaper format; (4) conveyance and access 
apparatus capable of manipulating a roll of paper more than two 
newspaper broadsheet pages across through the production process and 
which provides structural support and access; and (5) a computerized 
control system, which is any computer equipment and/or software 
designed specifically to control, monitor, adjust, and coordinate the 
functions and operations of large newspaper printing presses or press 
components.
    A press addition is comprised of a union of one or more of the 
press components defined above and the equipment necessary to integrate 
such components into an existing press system.
    Because of their size, LNPP systems, press additions, and press 
components are typically shipped either partially assembled or 
unassembled, complete or incomplete, and are assembled and/or completed 
prior to and/or during the installation process in the United States. 
Any of the five components, or collection of components, the use of 
which is to fulfill a contract for LNPP systems, press additions, or 
press components, regardless of degree of

[[Page 11591]]

assembly and/or degree of combination with non-subject elements before 
or after importation, is included in the scope of this review. Also 
included in the scope are elements of a LNPP system, addition or 
component, which taken altogether, constitute at least 50 percent of 
the cost of manufacture of any of the five major LNPP components of 
which they are a part.
    For purposes of the review, the following definitions apply 
irrespective of any different definition that may be found in customs 
rulings, U.S. customs law or the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS): (1) The term ``unassembled'' means fully or 
partially unassembled or disassembled; and (2) the term ``incomplete'' 
means lacking one or more elements with which the LNPP is intended to 
be equipped in order to fulfill a contract for a LNPP system, addition 
or component.
    This scope does not cover spare or replacement parts. Spare or 
replacement parts imported pursuant to a LNPP contract, which are not 
integral to the original start-up and operation of the LNPP, and are 
separately identified and valued in a LNPP contract, whether or not 
shipped in combination with covered merchandise, are excluded from the 
scope of this review. Used presses are also not subject to this scope. 
Used presses are those that have been previously sold in an arm's-
length transaction to a purchaser that used them to produce newspapers 
in the ordinary course of business.
    Also excluded from the scope are elements and components of LNPP 
systems, and additions thereto, which feature a 22-inch cut-off, 50-
inch web width and a rated speed no greater than 75,000 copies per 
hour. See Large Newspaper Printing Presses Components Thereof, Whether

Final Results

    We affirm our decision to apply an adverse facts available rate of 
59.67 percent to TKS in the 1997-1998 administrative review under 
section 776(b) of the Act as a result of TKS' misconduct during this 
review. For a full discussion of the application of facts available and 
adverse inferences, see the Preliminary Results, 70 FR at 54021-23, and 
the Decision Memorandum accompanying this notice at Comment 5. This 
rate was corroborated at the preliminary results and we have uncovered 
no new information since the preliminary results that warrants 
modification of our analysis. See also AFA Rate Selection Memorandum 
dated September 6, 2005. In addition, because the rate for the 1997-
1998 administrative review is no longer zero, TKS no longer qualifies 
for revocation of the antidumping duty order based on three consecutive 
administrative reviews resulting in zero dumping margins, pursuant to 
19 CFR 351.222(b). Therefore, we are rescinding the revocation with 
respect to TKS and reinstating the order with respect to TKS from 
September 1, 2000, through September 3, 2001, the day before the 
effective date of the sunset revocation. See Comment 2 in the 
accompanying Decision Memorandum. Furthermore, upon the completion of 
this review, we will reopen for reconsideration the sunset review that 
resulted in

revocation of this order. We will conduct the sunset review following 
the procedures outlined in section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218. See Comment 3 in the accompanying Decision Memorandum.
    This notice serves as advance notification that we will reopen a 
sunset review approximately 30 days after publication of these final 
results. This advance notification is not required by statute but is 
provided as a service to the international trading community.
    We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(b) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.216.

    Dated: March 1, 2006.

Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
