SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department received a timely request from QHD Sanhai in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.214 (c), for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on honey from the PRC, which has a December anniversary month. See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order; Honey from the People’s Republic of China, 66 FR 63670 (December 10, 2001). QHD Sanhai identified itself as a producer and exporter of honey. As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i) and (iii)(A), QHD Sanhai certified that it did not export honey to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’), and that it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer which exported honey to the United States during the POI. Furthermore, the company also certified that its export activities are not controlled by the government of the PRC, satisfying the requirements of 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B). Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), QHD Sanhai submitted documentation establishing the date on which the subject merchandise was first entered for consumption in the United States, the volume of that first shipment and any subsequent shipments, and the date of the first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. The Department conducted Customs database queries and analyzed Customs entry packages to confirm that the shipments made by QHD Sanhai had officially entered the United States via assignment of an entry date in the Customs database by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’). In addition, the Department confirmed the existence of QHD Sanhai and its U.S. customer. Initiation of Review In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), and based on information on the record, we are initiating a new shipper review for QHD Sanhai. See Memorandum to the File through James C. Doyle, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, from Scot Fullerton, Senior Case Analyst, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, regarding Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review: Honey from the People’s Republic of E:\FR\FM\05FEN1.SGM 05FEN1 5266 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 23 / Monday, February 5, 2007 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES China (January 29, 2007). We intend to issue the preliminary results of this review not later than 180 days after the date on which this review was initiated, and the final results of this review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A), the period of review (‘‘POR’’) for a new shipper review, initiated in the month immediately following the anniversary month, will be the 12-month period immediately preceding the anniversary month. Therefore, the POR for the new shipper review of QHD Sanhai is December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. In cases involving non–market economies, the Department requires that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country–wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. See Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Bicycles from the People’s Republic of China, 61 FR 19026, 19027 (April 30, 1996). Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to QHD Sanhai, including a separate rates section. The review will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that QHD Sanhai is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of honey. However, if QHD Sanhai does not demonstrate its eligibility for a separate rate, then the company will be deemed not separate from other companies that exported during the POI and the new shipper review will be rescinded as to the company. Interested parties that require access to proprietary information in this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(d), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: January 29, 2007. Stephen J.

SUMMARY: On October 2, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) initiated five-year (‘‘sunset’’) reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain pasta (‘‘pasta’’) from Italy and Turkey (71 FR 57921) pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). On the basis of notices of intent to participate and substantive comments filed on behalf of the domestic interested parties, and an untimely response from a respondent interested party in the sunset review of Turkey, the Department conducted expedited (120day) sunset reviews of these antidumping duty orders. As a result of these reviews, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on pasta from Italy and Turkey would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels indicated in the Final Results of Review section of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On October 2, 2006, the Department initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on pasta from Italy and Turkey (71 FR 57921), pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 71 FR 57921 (October 2, 2006). On October 17, 2006, the Department received notices of intent to participate on behalf of New World Pasta Company, Dakota Growers Pasta Company, A. Zerga’s Sons, Inc., Philadelphia Macaroni Company, and American Italian Pasta Company (collectively, ‘‘domestic interested parties’’), within the applicable deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). See Letter of Domestic Party Notice of Intent to PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Participate - Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Pasta from Italy, dated October 17, 2006, and Domestic Party Notice of Intent to Participate - Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Pasta from Turkey, dated October 17, 2006. The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as producers of pasta in the United States. On November 1, 2006, the Department received complete substantive responses from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received one substantive response from a respondent interested party in these proceedings; however, the response was returned because it was submitted after the November 1, 2006, deadline. See Letter from Oba Makarnacilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. to the Secretary of Commerce, dated November 7, 2006. As a result, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C), the Department conducted expedited, 120-day, sunset reviews of these antidumping duty orders. Scope of Orders Italy (A–475–818) Imports covered by the antidumping duty order on pasta from Italy include shipments of certain non–egg dry pasta in packages of five pounds (2.27 kilograms) or less, whether or not enriched or fortified or containing milk or other optional ingredients such as chopped vegetables, vegetable purees, milk, gluten, diastasis, vitamins, coloring and flavorings, and up to two percent egg white. The pasta covered by this order is typically sold in the retail market, in fiberboard or cardboard cartons, or polyethylene or polypropylene bags of varying dimensions. Excluded from the scope of this order are refrigerated, frozen, or canned pastas, as well as all forms of egg pasta, with the exception of non–egg dry pasta containing up to two percent egg white. Also excluded from the order on pasta from Italy are imports of organic pasta from Italy that are accompanied by the appropriate certificate issued by the Instituto Mediterraneo Di Certificazione, by Bioagricoop Scrl, by QC&I International Services, by Ecocert Italia or by Consorzio per il Controllo dei Prodotti Biologici, by Associazione Italiana per l’Agricoltura Biologica, or by Instituto per la Certificazione Etica e Ambientale (‘‘ICEA’’) are also excluded from this order.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department received a timely request from QHD Sanhai in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 351.214 (c), for a new shipper review 
of the antidumping duty order on honey from the PRC, which has a 
December anniversary month. See Notice of Amended Final Determination 
of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order; Honey from 
the People's Republic of China, 66 FR 63670 (December 10, 2001). QHD 
Sanhai identified itself as a producer and exporter of honey. As 
required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i) and (iii)(A), QHD Sanhai certified 
that it did not export honey to the United States during the period of 
investigation (``POI''), and that it has never been affiliated with any 
exporter or producer which exported honey to the United States during 
the POI. Furthermore, the company also certified that its export 
activities are not controlled by the government of the PRC, satisfying 
the requirements of 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B).
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), QHD Sanhai submitted 
documentation establishing the date on which the subject merchandise 
was first entered for consumption in the United States, the volume of 
that first shipment and any subsequent shipments, and the date of the 
first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.
    The Department conducted Customs database queries and analyzed 
Customs entry packages to confirm that the shipments made by QHD Sanhai 
had officially entered the United States via assignment of an entry 
date in the Customs database by U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP''). In addition, the Department confirmed the existence of QHD 
Sanhai and its U.S. customer.

Initiation of Review

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1), and based on information on the record, we are 
initiating a new shipper review for QHD Sanhai. See Memorandum to the

China (January 29, 2007). We intend to issue the preliminary results of 
this review not later than 180 days after the date on which this review 
was initiated, and the final results of this review within 90 days 
after the date on which the preliminary results were issued.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A), the period of review 
(``POR'') for a new shipper review, initiated in the month immediately 
following the anniversary month, will be the 12-month period 
immediately preceding the anniversary month. Therefore, the POR for the 
new shipper review of QHD Sanhai is December 1, 2005, through November 
30, 2006.
    In cases involving non-market economies, the Department requires 
that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty 
rate separate from the country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure 
and de facto absence of government control over the company's export 
activities. See Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: 
Bicycles from the People's Republic of China, 61 FR 19026, 19027 (April 
30, 1996). Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to QHD Sanhai, 
including a separate rates section. The review will proceed if the 
responses provide sufficient indication that QHD Sanhai is not subject 
to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its 
exports of honey. However, if QHD Sanhai does not demonstrate its 
eligibility for a separate rate, then the company will be deemed not 
separate from other companies that exported during the POI and the new 
shipper review will be rescinded as to the company.
    Interested parties that require access to proprietary information 
in this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure 
under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.305 and 351.306.
    This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(d), and 19 CFR
