Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES 65778 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 217 / Thursday, November 9, 2006 / Notices deposit rate equal to the rate applied to the PRC entity. See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic from China, 59 FR 55625, 55627 (November 8, 1994), see also Certain Cased Pencils From the People’s Republic of China; Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Amended Antidumping Duty Order in Accordance With Final Court Decision, 64 FR 25275 (May 11, 1999). In the 1999–2000 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on pencils from the PRC, the Department ‘‘collapsed’’ Three Star with another entity, China First Pencil Co. Ltd. (China First), based upon information that came to light late in the review. Further, the Department determined that the combined entity, China First/Three Star, was distinct from the Three Star whose factors of production formed the basis for excluding Guangdong from the antidumping duty order. Because there was no information on the record of the 1999–2000 review from which to calculate a dumping margin for Guangdong, consistent with the investigation in this proceeding, in the final results of review the Department assigned Guangdong’s sales of China First/Three Star produced subject merchandise a cash deposit rate equal to the PRC–wide rate. See Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 67 FR 48,612 (July 25, 2002), as amended in Notice of Amended Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China, 67 FR 59,049 (September 19, 2002) (2000 Amended Final Results of Review). China First, Guangdong, Three Star, Orient International Holding Shanghai Foreign Trade Co. Ltd., and Kaiyuan Group Corporation, respondents in the 1999–2000 administrative review, filed a motion of judgement upon the agency record contesting the final results of that review. Specifically, these respondents challenged a number of the surrogate values selected by the Department, as well as the Department’s decision to collapse Three Star with China First, and initiate a review of Guangdong and assign it the PRC–wide rate. After considering the respondents’ arguments, the CIT upheld the Department’s selection of surrogate values but remanded the case to the Department instructing it to reevaluate the PRC– wide rate applied to Guangdong because VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:31 Nov 08, 2006 Jkt 211001 the Court found that by assigning this rate to Guangdong the Department had effectively applied adverse facts available to a participating and cooperative respondent. The CIT also instructed the Department to articulate specifically the portions of the existing collapsing statutes and regulations which are applicable or inapplicable in the non–market economy (NME) context, and provide the Court with a clearly articulated methodology for collapsing companies in NME countries. See Kaiyuan Group Corp., et al v. United States and the Pencil Section Writing Instrument Manufacturers Ass’n, et al., 343 F. Supp. 2d 1289 (May 14, 2004). In its remand redetermination, the Department continued to collapse Three Star with China first (providing the additional explanation requested by the Court) but assigned Guangdong a cash deposit rate of 13.91 percent, which is equal to the weighted–average of the dumping margins calculated for the other respondents in the 1999–2000 administrative review. On August 23, 2005, the CIT sustained the Department’s remand redetermination. See Kaiyuan Group Corp., et al v. United States and the Pencil Section Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association, et al., 391 F. Supp. 2d 1317 (August 23, 2005), and the Department’s Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand: Kaiyuan Group Corp., et al v. United States and Pencil Section Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association, et al. (dated September 30, 2004). On October 21, 2005, respondents filed a notice of appeal with the CAFC. On July 12, 2006, the CAFC issued a ‘‘Notice of Entry of Judgement Without Opinion,’’ in which it affirmed the decision of the CIT. Amended Final Results of Review As the litigation in this case has concluded, the Department is amending the 2000 Amended Final Results of Review to reflect a dumping margin for Guangdong of 13.91 percent. The dumping margins for the other respondents in that review and the PRC–wide rate did not change as a result of the Department’s remand redetermination. Cash Deposit Requirements Subsequent to the 1999–2000 antidumping duty administrative review of pencils from the PRC, the Department determined, with respect to the pencils order, that Guangdong ‘‘did not merit a separate rate and will be subject to the PRC–wide rate.’’ See Certain Cased Pencils from The People’s Republic of China: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Administrative Review, 71 FR 38366 (July 6, 2006) (2003–2004 Pencils AD Review) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 10. Specifically, in the ‘‘Cash Deposit Requirements’’ section of the 2003–2004 Pencils AD Review, and the Department’s corresponding cash deposit instructions to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), issued on July 28, 2006, we noted that for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise, to which we have not assigned a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC wide rate of 114.9 percent. The cash deposit rate in the 2003–2004 Pencils AD Review supersedes the cash deposit rate assigned to Guangdong in the instant amended final results. Therefore, Guangdong’s future entries will continue to be subject to the PRC– wide rate and there will be no need to issue cash deposit instructions to CBP in connection with the instant Federal Register notice. Assessment Consistent with the 2000 A mended Final Results of Review, because there is no information on the record which identifies the importers of record, we calculated exporter–specific assessment rates for respondents’ shipments of subject merchandise. Specifically, 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 U.S. Customs and Border Protection within 15 days of publication of this notice. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Dated: November 2, 2006. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

AmeriCorps members are individuals who engage in community service. Members may receive a living allowance during their term of service.
