Certain Hard Red Spring Wheat from Canada: Notice of Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77371-77372 [E6-22078]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 247 / Tuesday, December 26, 2006 / Notices period is not practicable, given the extraordinarily complicated nature of the proceeding. The 2005–2006 administrative and new shipper reviews cover four companies, and to conduct the sales and factor analyses for each requires the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to each company’s sales practices and manufacturing methods. In addition, the Department must analyze the responses of thirteen separate–rate respondents to determine their eligibility for a separate–rate. Therefore, the Department requires more time to complete these analyses. Additionally, the Department requires additional time to analyze the verification findings of the three companies verified. Therefore, given the number and complexity of issues in this case, and in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 40 days to 285 days. Therefore, the preliminary results will be due no later than February 9, 2007. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: December 19, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration. [FR Doc.

The Canadian Wheat Board also timely filed a request to defer for one year the initiation of the administrative review. The Department received no objections to this request from any party cited in 19 CFR 351.213(c)(1)(ii). On December 1, 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register the Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 72107 (Dec. 1, 2005), which granted the Canadian Wheat Board’s request for deferral of administrative review for one year.

Rescission of Antidumping Administrative Review The Canadian Wheat Board filed its withdrawal request within the deadline established by section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations.

Therefore, we are rescinding the above–cited administrative review in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: Based on the withdrawal of a request for review, the 
Department of Commerce is rescinding its administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on Certain Hard Red Spring Wheat from Canada for 
the period October 1, 2004, through September 30, 2005.

EFFECTIVE DATE:  December 26, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Yasmin Nair, AD/CVD Operations, Office

Washington DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-3813.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 3, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published in the Federal Register the Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request 
Administrative Review, 70 FR 57558 (Oct. 3, 2005), for the above-cited 
segment of this antidumping duty proceeding. On October 31, 2005, the 
Department received a timely filed request for review from the Canadian 
Wheat Board. The Canadian Wheat Board also timely filed a request to 
defer for one year the initiation of the administrative review. The 
Department received no objections to this request from any party cited 
in 19 CFR 351.213(c)(1)(ii). On December 1, 2005, the Department 
published in the Federal Register the Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of 
Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 72107 (Dec. 1, 2005), which granted the 
Canadian Wheat Board's request for deferral of administrative review 
for one year. On November 27, 2006, the Department published in the 
Federal Register the Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 68535 
(Nov. 27, 2006), in which the Department automatically initiated the 
above-referenced deferred administrative review of Certain Hard Red 
Spring Wheat from Canada.
    On December 6, 2006, we received a timely filed submission from the 
Canadian Wheat Board withdrawing its request for an administrative 
review.

Rescission of Antidumping Administrative Review

    The Canadian Wheat Board filed its withdrawal request within the 
deadline established by section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department's 
regulations. No other parties have requested a review of the Canadian 
Wheat Board or any other producer or exporter of the subject 
merchandise. Therefore, we are rescinding the above-cited 
administrative review in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For 
the company for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties 
shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated 
antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from 
warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). 
The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly 
to CBP within 41 days of publication of this notice.

Cash Deposit Rates

    The Department has revoked the antidumping and countervailing duty 
orders on Certain Hard Red Spring Wheat from Canada. See Antidumping 
Duty Investigation and Countervailing Duty Investigation of Hard Red 
Spring Wheat from Canada: Notice of Panel Decision, Revocation of 
Countervailing and Antidumping Duty Orders and Termination of 
Suspension of Liquidation, 71 FR 8275 (Feb. 16, 2006). The effective 
date of the revocation is January 2, 2006. Therefore, the CBP has been 
directed to terminate the suspension of liquidation for all shipments 
of Certain Hard Red Spring Wheat from Canada entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after January 2, 2006.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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.

Notification Regarding APOs

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. 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.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
