SUMMARY: On December 28, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the preliminary results and intent to rescind in part the 2003–2004 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cased pencils (pencils) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). See Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent to Rescind in Part, 70 FR 76755 (December 28, 2005) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). The period of review (POR) is December 1, 2003, through November 30, 2004. We have now completed the 2003–2004 administrative review of the order. Based on comments received, we have made changes in the dumping margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. For details regarding these changes, see the section of this notice entitled ‘‘Changes Since the Preliminary Results.’’ The final results are listed below in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section. EFFECTIVE DATE: July 6, 2006.

AGENCY: Background On December 28, 2005, the Department published the preliminary results of this review. See Preliminary Results. The POR is December 1, 2003, through November 30, 2004. On January 20, 2006, we extended the deadline for submission of case briefs and rebuttal briefs to February 24, 2006, and March 1, 2006, respectively. We also extended the deadline for submission of surrogate value information until February 14, 2006.

(CFP)/Three Star Stationery Industry Corp. (Three Star)(CFP/Three Star),2 Orient International Holding Shanghai Foreign Trade Co., Ltd. (SFTC), and Shandong Rongxin Import & Export Co. Ltd. (Rongxin), and from the domestic interested parties. We received rebuttal briefs from CFP/Three Star, SFTC, Rongxin, and the domestic interested parties on March 1, 2006. On April 27, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department extended the time limit for the final results of this review until June 26, 2006. See Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 24839 (April 27, 2006). Due to the unexpected emergency closure of the main Commerce building on Monday, June 26, 2006, the Department is issuing these final results on June 27, 2006, the next business day. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).

The pencils subject to the order are currently classifiable 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. In addition, pencils with all of the following physical characteristics are excluded from the scope of the order: novelty jumbo pencils that are octagonal in shape, approximately ten inches long, one inch in diameter before sharpening, and three–and-one eighth inches in circumference, composed of turned wood encasing one–and-one half inches of sharpened lead on one end and a rubber eraser on the other end.

(TCW) because TCW reported it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. See the Preliminary Results, 70 FR at 76756; see also TCW’s February 22, 2005, response to the Department’s questionnaire. We reviewed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data and found no evidence that TCW made shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. 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 Stephen VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:01 Jul 05, 2006 Jkt 208001 J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated June 26, 2006, 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 http:// .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 can be found in the company–specific calculation memoranda dated June 26, 2006. These changes are listed below. As discussed fully in the Decision Memorandum, the Department corrected the calculation of the surrogate value for pencil slats to account for wood lost when pencil slats are produced from lumber for use in pencil production for CFP/Three Star, SFTC, and Rongxin. In addition, we corrected the calculation of Rongxin’s slat surrogate value with respect to the percentage of wood lost when pencils are made from slats. Furthermore, using updated contemporaneous data obtained after publication of the Preliminary Results, we re–calculated the slat surrogate value used for producers that produced slats from timber.3 Finally, we corrected a ministerial error made in CFP/Three Star’s preliminary margin calculation program with respect to the calculation of the value of coal included in the normal value. Final Results of Review We determine that the following weighted–average, ad valorem, percentage margins exist for the period December 1, 2003, through November 30, 2004: 3 We stated in the Preliminary Results that we would attempt to obtain timber prices contemporaneous with the POR for use in the final results.

These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. 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. We have calculated customer–specific antidumping duty assessment amounts for subject merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total quantity of sales examined. We calculated these assessment amounts because there is no information on the record which identifies entered values or the importers of record. 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 CFR 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 E:\FR\FM\06JYN1.SGM 06JYN1 38368 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 129 / Thursday, July 6, 2006 / Notices subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

    \2\ The Department initiated separate reviews of China First 
Pencil Company, Ltd. (CFP) and Shanghai Three Star Stationery 
Industry Corp. (Three Star) based on timely requests from interested 
parties. In the final results of the 2001-2002 administrative review 
the Department collapsed CFP and Three Star for purposes of its 
antidumping analysis. See Certain Cased Pencils from the People's 
Republic of China; Final Results and Partial Rescission of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 69 FR 29266 (May 21, 2004), 
and the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 6. 
The Department continued to collapse CFP and Three Star in the final 
results of the 2002-2003 administrative review. See Certain Cased 
Pencils from the People's Republic of China; Final Results and 
Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 
42301 (July 22, 2005) (Pencils 02/03), and the accompanying Issues 
and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. For this review, the 
Department continues to consider CFP and Three Star (hereinafter 
referred to as CFP/Three Star) to be a single entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On April 27, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department extended the 
time limit for the final results of this review until June 26, 2006. 
See Certain Cased Pencils from the People's Republic of China: 
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 71 FR 24839 (April 27, 2006).
    Due to the unexpected emergency closure of the main Commerce 
building on Monday, June 26, 2006, the Department is issuing these 
final results on June 27, 2006, the next business day. See Notice of 
Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for 
Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 
1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 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

[[Page 38367]]

or not tipped (e.g., with erasers, etc.) in any fashion, and either 
sharpened or unsharpened. The pencils subject to the order are 
currently classifiable 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.
    In addition, pencils with all of the following physical 
characteristics are excluded from the scope of the order: novelty jumbo 
pencils that are octagonal in shape, approximately ten inches long, one 
inch in diameter before sharpening, and three-and-one eighth inches in 
circumference, composed of turned wood encasing one-and-one half inches 
of sharpened lead on one end and a rubber eraser on the other end.
    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, 70 FR at 76756; see also TCW's February 22, 2005, 
response to the Department's questionnaire. We reviewed U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP) data and found no evidence that TCW made 
shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. 
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 Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. Spooner, 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated June 26, 2006, 
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 http://.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 can be found in the company-
specific calculation memoranda dated June 26, 2006. These changes are 
listed below.
    As discussed fully in the Decision Memorandum, the Department 
corrected the calculation of the surrogate value for pencil slats to 
account for wood lost when pencil slats are produced from lumber for 
use in pencil production for CFP/Three Star, SFTC, and Rongxin. In 
addition, we corrected the calculation of Rongxin's slat surrogate 
value with respect to the percentage of wood lost when pencils are made 
from slats. Furthermore, using updated contemporaneous data obtained 
after publication of the Preliminary Results, we re-calculated the slat 
surrogate value used for producers that produced slats from timber.\3\ 
Finally, we corrected a ministerial error made in CFP/Three Star's 
preliminary margin calculation program with respect to the calculation 
of the value of coal included in the normal value.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ We stated in the Preliminary Results that we would attempt 
to obtain timber prices contemporaneous with the POR for use in the 
final results. See the Preliminary Results, 70 FR at 76759.

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.

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. We have calculated customer-
specific antidumping duty assessment amounts for subject merchandise 
based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated 
for the examined sales to the total quantity of sales examined. We 
calculated these assessment amounts because there is no information on 
the record which identifies entered values or the importers of record. 
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 CFR 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 CFR 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.
    We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 771(i) of the Act.

    Dated: June 27, 2006.
David M. Spooner,
Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration.
