SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On August 8, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Notice of Intent to Revoke in PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Part: Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile, 71 FR 45000 (August 8, 2006) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’) in the Federal Register. On September 28, 2006, we extended the deadline for parties to submit comments on the Preliminary Results until October 17, 2006, and we extended the deadline for parties to submit rebuttal comments until October 23, 2006. See Memorandum from Yasmin Bordas to File, ‘‘3rd Administrative Review of Individually Quick Frozen Raspberries from Chile,’’ dated September 28, 2006. We also informed the parties that the Department would accept comments relating to verification findings for Sociedad Agroindustrial Valle Frio Ltda. (‘‘Valle Frio’’) and its affiliated processor, Agricola Framparque (‘‘Framparque’’), seven days after issuance of the verification report, and that the Department would accept rebuttals to those comments five days later. On October 17, 2006, the Department received case briefs from the petitioners, Pacific Northwest Berry Association, Lynden, Washington, and each of its individual members, Curt Maberry Farm; Enfield Farms, Inc.; Maberry Packing; and Rader Farms, Inc., and respondents, Arlavan S.A. (‘‘Arlavan’’), Fruticola Olmue S.A. (‘‘Olmue’’), Santiago Comercio Exterior Exportaciones S.A. (‘‘SANCO’’), Valle Frio/Framparque, Valles Andinos S.A. (‘‘Valles Andinos’’), Vital Berry Marketing S.A. (‘‘VBM’’), and Alimentos Naturales Vitafoods S.A. (‘‘Vitafoods’’). On October 23, 2006, the petitioners, Arlavan, Olmue, VBM, Valle Frio/ Framparque, and Valles Andinos filed rebuttal briefs. On December 26, 2006, Valle Frio/ Framparque filed comments relating to their verification. We did not receive rebuttals to the December 26, 2006 comments. On October 25, 2006, we extended the deadline for the final results to February 5, 2007. See Certain Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile: Extension of the Time Limit for the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 64244 (November 1, 2006). Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are imports of IQF whole or broken red raspberries from Chile, with or without the addition of sugar or syrup, regardless of variety, grade, size or horticulture method (e.g., organic or not), the size of the container in which packed, or the method of packing. The scope of the order excludes fresh red E:\FR\FM\12FEN1.SGM 12FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 28 / Monday, February 12, 2007 / Notices raspberries and block frozen red raspberries (i.e., puree, straight pack, juice stock, and juice concentrate). The merchandise subject to this order is currently classifiable under subheading 0811.20.2020 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under the order is dispositive. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Period of Review The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is July 1, 2004, through June 30, 2005. Verification As provided in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), during October 2006, we verified the cost information provided by Valle Frio and Framparque in Chile using standard verification procedures, including examination of relevant financial records and selection of original documentation containing relevant information. The Department reported its findings on December 18, 2006. See Memorandum from Angela S. Strom and Heidi K. Schriefer to the File, ‘‘Verification of the Cost Response of Valle Frio in the 2004–2005 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order of Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile,’’ dated December 18, 2006 (‘‘Cost Verification Report - Valle Frio’’), which is on file in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’) in room B–099 of the main Department building. As explained in the Preliminary Results, during March to April 2006, we verified the sales and cost information provided by Olmue and SANCO in Chile using standard verification procedures, including examination of relevant sales and financial records, and selection of original documentation containing relevant information. The Department reported its findings on July 5, July 6, and July 27, 2006. See Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Verification of the Sales Response of Santiago Comercio Exterior S.A. in the 2004–2005 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile,’’ dated July 5, 2006; Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Verification of the Cost Response of Santiago Comercio Exterior S.A. in the Antidumping Review of Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile,’’ dated July 6, 2006; and Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Verification of the Sales and Cost of Production ´ Responses of Fruticola Olmue S.A. in the 2004–2005 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Individually VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:52 Feb 09, 2007 Jkt 211001 Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile,’’ dated July 27, 2006. These reports are on file in the CRU in room B–099 of the main Department building. Determination to Revoke In Part The Department ‘‘may revoke, in whole or part’’ an antidumping order upon completion of a review under section 751 of the Act. While Congress has not specified the procedures that the Department must follow in revoking an order, the Department has developed a procedure for revocation that is described in 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2). In determining whether to revoke an antidumping duty order in part, the Secretary will consider: (A) whether one or more exporters or producers covered by the order have sold the merchandise at not less than normal value (‘‘NV’’) for a period of at least three consecutive years; (B) whether, for any exporter or producer that the Secretary previously has determined to have sold the subject merchandise at less than NV, the exporter or producer agrees in writing to its immediate reinstatement in the order, as long as any exporter or producer is subject to the order, if the Secretary concludes that the exporter or producer, subsequent to the revocation, sold the subject merchandise at less than NV; and (C) whether the continued application of the antidumping duty order is otherwise necessary to offset dumping. The Department’s regulations require, inter alia, that a company requesting revocation submit the following: (1) a certification that the company has sold the subject merchandise at not less than NV in the current review period and that the company will not sell at less than NV in the future; (2) a certification that the company sold the subject merchandise in commercial quantities in each of the three years forming the basis of the receipt of such a request; and (3) an agreement that the order will be reinstated if the company is subsequently found to be selling the subject merchandise at less than fair value. See 19 CFR 351.222(e)(1)(i)-(iii). See, e.g., Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination Not to Revoke the Antidumping Duty Order: Brass Sheet and Strip From the Netherlands, 65 FR 742, 743 (January 6, 2000). On July 29, 2005, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222(e)(1), SANCO requested revocation of the antidumping duty order as it pertains to that company. With its request for revocation, SANCO provided each of the certifications required under 19 CFR 351.222(e). Consistent with the Preliminary Results, PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6525 we continue to find that the request from SANCO meets all of the criteria under 19 CFR 351.222(e)(1). As explained in the preliminary and these final results, our calculations show that SANCO sold IQF red raspberries at not less than NV during the current review period. In addition, SANCO sold IQF red raspberries at not less than NV during the 2003–2004 and 2001–2003 review periods (i.e., SANCO’s dumping margin was zero or de minimis). See Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries From Chile, 70 FR 6618, 6620 (Feb. 8, 2005), covering the period December 31, 2001, through June 30, 2003; see also Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile: Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 72788 (Dec. 7, 2005), covering the period July 1, 2003, through June 30, 2004. Moreover, based on our examination of the sales data submitted by SANCO, we find that SANCO sold the subject merchandise in the United States in commercial quantities in each of the consecutive years cited by SANCO to support its request for revocation. See Memorandum from Yasmin Bordas to Stephen J. Claeys, ‘‘Preliminary Determination to Revoke in Part the Antidumping Duty Order on Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile for Santiago Comercio Exterior Exportaciones Sociedad Anonima,’’ dated July 31, 2006, which is on file in room B–099 of the CRU. Finally, we find that application of the antidumping order to SANCO is no longer warranted for the following reasons: (1) as noted above, the company had zero or de minimis margins for a period of at least three consecutive years; (2) the company has agreed to immediate reinstatement of the order if the Department finds that it has resumed making sales at less than NV; and (3) the continued application of the order is not otherwise necessary to offset dumping. Therefore, we determine that SANCO qualifies for revocation of the order on IQF red raspberries pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2) and that the order, with respect to subject merchandise exported by SANCO, should be revoked. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.222(f)(3), we are terminating the suspension of liquidation for subject merchandise exported by SANCO that was entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 1, 2005, and will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to refund E:\FR\FM\12FEN1.SGM 12FEN1 6526 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 28 / Monday, February 12, 2007 / Notices with interest any cash deposits for such entries. Collapsing Determination As explained in the Preliminary Results, we have determined that Framparque should be collapsed with Valle Frio for the purposes of this review. See Memorandum to Susan Kuhbach, Director, ‘‘Collapsing of Sociedad Agroindustrial Valle Frio Ltda.,’’ dated July 31, 2006. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this review are addressed in the February 5, 2007, Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Third Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile (‘‘Decision Memorandum’’), which is hereby adopted by this notice. Attached to this notice as an appendix is a list of the issues which parties have raised and to which we have responded in the Decision Memorandum. 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 Department’s CRU. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. For SANCO, Vitafoods, and Valles Andinos, we made no changes to the calculations from the Preliminary Results. See Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ‘‘Preliminary Results Calculation Memorandum for Santiago Comercio Exterior Exportaciones Sociedad Anonima,’’ dated July 31, 2006; Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ‘‘Preliminary Results Calculation Memorandum for Alimentos Naturales Vitafoods S.A.,’’ dated July 31, 2006; Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ‘‘Preliminary Results Calculation Memorandum for Valles Andinos, S.A.,’’ dated July 31, 2006; which are on file in the Department’s CRU. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Use of Facts Otherwise Available Pursuant to section 776 of the Act, and for the reasons explained in the Preliminary Results, we have continued to apply adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) for the cost of production (‘‘COP’’) of the merchandise under review that was supplied by Arlavan’s non–responsive supplier, DICAF Exportaciones Ltd. VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:52 Feb 09, 2007 Jkt 211001 (‘‘DICAF’’).1 However, for the final results, we have changed the calculation methodology for this COP. See Changes Since the Preliminary Results: Arlavan, below. For the reasons explained in the Preliminary Results, we have continued to apply neutral facts available to one of Olmue’s reported control numbers for which it did not provide COP information. See Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ‘‘Preliminary Results Calculation Memorandum for Fruticola ´ Olmue S.A.,’’ dated July 31, 2006. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our findings at verification, and analysis of comments received, for Arlavan, Olmue, Valle Frio/Framparque, and VBM, we have made adjustments to the preliminary results calculation methodologies in calculating the final dumping margins in these proceedings. Brief descriptions of the company– specific changes are discussed below. Arlavan We modified our methodology for calculating the COP of the merchandise that was supplied to Arlavan by DICAF Exportaciones Ltd. (‘‘DICAF’’)/ Agroindustrial del Maule (‘‘Agromaule’’).2 Because DICAF/ Agromaule did not respond to our questionnaire, we based DICAF/ Agromaule’s cost on AFA. In the preliminary results, for each form of the merchandise under review, we calculated the simple average of the three highest COPs among all producers and used this as the DICAF/Agromaule COP. For the final results, we have used a weighted average of the COPs of the two producers who had the highest COPs of whole and non–whole finished IQF red raspberries. See Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ‘‘Final Results Calculation Memorandum for Arlavan S.A.,’’ dated February 5, 2007. 1 We note that in the Preliminary Results, we stated that we were applying AFA pursuant to section 776(a)(1)(D), which is the provision for application of facts available when information cannot be verified. Our analysis, however, is based on section 776(a)(1)(A), the provision for application of facts available when an interested party withholds requested information, and section 776(b) and (c). 2 Although DICAF and Agromaule are legally two separate entities, the products, services, and personnel, as well as contact information, were the same. Although separately incorporated, Agromaule has the same familial ownership as DICAF. We refer in the remainder of this memorandum to ‘‘DICAF/ Agromaule.’’ For additional explanation of company ownership, see Preliminary Results at 45004. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Olmue We corrected a clerical error in the comparison market and margin programs. Specifically, we placed parentheses around the summation of the gross unit price and billing adjustment variables in the recalculation of certain credit expenses, as necessary. See Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ‘‘Final Results Calculation Memorandum for Fruticola Olmue S.A.,’’ dated February 5, 2007. Valle Frio/Framparque For the final results, we used Valle Frio/Framparque’s revised comparison market packing expenses as a result of errors discovered at verification. See Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ‘‘Final Results Calculation Memorandum for Sociedad Agroindustrial Valle Frio Ltda./Agricola Framparque,’’ dated February 5, 2007. We made the following adjustments to Valle Frio’s costs used in the Preliminary Results. • We adjusted direct material, variable overhead and fixed overhead costs based on the information obtained at verification. • We reclassified a portion of the reported indirect selling expenses as general and administrative (‘‘G&A’’) expenses based on the corrections to the allocation criteria discovered at verification. • We adjusted the cost of sales denominator used to compute the G&A and financial expense ratios in accordance with the specific adjustments made to cost of manufacturing (‘‘COM’’). We made the following adjustments to Framparque’s costs used in the Preliminary Results. • We used Framparque’s cost buildup that was corrected at verification to calculate the costs of merchandise sold to the third country market. Using this cost buildup, we made additional adjustments to the direct material costs and have recalculated direct labor, variable overhead and fixed overhead costs. • Consistent with the Preliminary Results, we removed all G&A and financial expense items from the variable overhead cost calculation, included these amounts in the numerator of the G&A and financial expense ratios, and computed the G&A and financial expense ratios for the fiscal year. • We adjusted the cost of sales denominator used to compute the G&A and financial expense ratios in E:\FR\FM\12FEN1.SGM 12FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 28 / Monday, February 12, 2007 / Notices accordance with the specific adjustments made to COM. See Memorandum from Angela Strom to Neal Halper, ‘‘Cost of Production and Constructed Value Calculation Adjustments for the Final Results Sociedad Agroindustrial Valle Frio Ltda./Agricola Framparque,’’ dated February 5, 2007 (‘‘Valle Frio/ Framparque Cost Calculation Memorandum’’); see also Cost Verification Report - Valle Frio. VBM • We revised the freight costs for two home market sales, pursuant to a clerical error correction letter submitted by VBM on October 12, 2006, and additional supporting documentation submitted by VBM on November 27, 2006. See Letter submitted to the Department by VBM, ‘‘Clarification of Information on the Record,’’ dated October 12, 2006; see also VBM’s Supplemental Questionnaire Response, dated November 27, 2006. For additional discussion of this change, see Decision Memorandum at Comment 15. • In the computer program used to calculate NV, we have corrected a currency conversion error for VBM’s warehousing expenses. See Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ‘‘Final Results Calculation Memorandum for Vital Berry Marketing S.A.,’’ dated February 5, 2007. For additional discussion of this change, see Decision Memorandum at Comment 16. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Results of the COP Test Pursuant to section 773(b)(2)(C)(i) of the Act, where less than 20 percent of sales of a given product were at prices less than the COP, we did not disregard any below–cost sales of that product because we determined that the below– cost sales were not made in ‘‘substantial quantities.’’ Where 20 percent or more of a respondent’s sales of a given product during the POR were at prices less than the COP, we determined such sales to have been made in ‘‘substantial quantities.’’ See section 773(b)(2)(C) of the Act. The sales were made within an extended period of time in accordance with section 773(b)(2)(B) of the Act, because we examined below–cost sales occurring during the entire POR. In such cases, because we compared prices to POR–average costs, we also determined that such sales were not made at prices which would permit recovery of all costs within a reasonable period of time, in accordance with section 773(b)(2)(D) of the Act. VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:52 Feb 09, 2007 Jkt 211001 6527 For Olmue, Valles Andinos, VBM, and Vitafoods, we found that, for certain products, more than 20 percent of comparison market sales were at prices less than the COP and, thus, the below– cost sales were made within an extended period of time in substantial quantities. In addition, these sales were made at prices that did not provide for the recovery of costs within a reasonable period of time. We therefore excluded these sales and used the remaining sales, if any, as the basis for determining NV, in accordance with section 773(b)(1) of the Act. 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the respondent for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 11, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published Stainless Steel Wire Rod from the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 59739 (October 11, 2006) (Preliminary Results), in the Federal Register. The period of review is September 1, 2004, through August 31, 2005. We have conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On November 13, 2006, Carpenter Technology Corporation, Dunkirk Specialty Steel, LLC (a subsidiary of Universal Stainless & Alloy Products), and North American Stainless (collectively, the petitioners), and respondents Changwon Specialty Steel Co., Ltd., and Dongbang Specialty Steel Co., Ltd. (collectively, the respondent),1 filed case briefs. On November 20, 2006, the petitioners and the respondent filed rebuttal briefs. Although the respondent requested a hearing on November 13, 2006, it withdrew its request on November 17, 2006. Because no other interested party requested a hearing, we did not hold one. Scope of Order For purposes of this order, the products covered are those SSWR that are hot–rolled or hot–rolled annealed and/or pickled and/or descaled rounds, squares, octagons, hexagons or other shapes, in coils, that may also be coated with a lubricant containing copper, lime or oxalate. SSWR is made of alloy steels containing, by weight, 1.2 percent or less of carbon and 10.5 percent or more of chromium, with or without other elements. These products are manufactured only by hot–rolling or hot–rolling annealing, and/or pickling and/or descaling, are normally sold in 1 We collapsed the two respondents into a single entity because we concluded they had a close supplier relationship.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 8, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, Notice of Intent to Revoke in Part: Individually 
Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile, 71 FR 45000 (August 8, 2006) 
(``Preliminary Results'') in the Federal Register.
    On September 28, 2006, we extended the deadline for parties to 
submit comments on the Preliminary Results until October 17, 2006, and 
we extended the deadline for parties to submit rebuttal comments until 
October 23, 2006. See Memorandum from Yasmin Bordas to File, ``3rd 
Administrative Review of Individually Quick Frozen Raspberries from 
Chile,'' dated September 28, 2006. We also informed the parties that 
the Department would accept comments relating to verification findings 
for Sociedad Agroindustrial Valle Frio Ltda. (``Valle Frio'') and its 
affiliated processor, Agricola Framparque (``Framparque''), seven days 
after issuance of the verification report, and that the Department 
would accept rebuttals to those comments five days later.
    On October 17, 2006, the Department received case briefs from the 
petitioners, Pacific Northwest Berry Association, Lynden, Washington, 
and each of its individual members, Curt Maberry Farm; Enfield Farms, 
Inc.; Maberry Packing; and Rader Farms, Inc., and respondents, Arlavan 
S.A. (``Arlavan''), Fruticola Olmue S.A. (``Olmue''), Santiago Comercio 
Exterior Exportaciones S.A. (``SANCO''), Valle Frio/Framparque, Valles 
Andinos S.A. (``Valles Andinos''), Vital Berry Marketing S.A. 
(``VBM''), and Alimentos Naturales Vitafoods S.A. (``Vitafoods''). On 
October 23, 2006, the petitioners, Arlavan, Olmue, VBM, Valle Frio/
Framparque, and Valles Andinos filed rebuttal briefs. On December 26, 
2006, Valle Frio/ Framparque filed comments relating to their 
verification. We did not receive rebuttals to the December 26, 2006 
comments.
    On October 25, 2006, we extended the deadline for the final results 
to February 5, 2007. See Certain Individually Quick Frozen Red 
Raspberries from Chile: Extension of the Time Limit for the Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 64244 
(November 1, 2006).

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are imports of IQF whole or 
broken red raspberries from Chile, with or without the addition of 
sugar or syrup, regardless of variety, grade, size or horticulture 
method (e.g., organic or not), the size of the container in which 
packed, or the method of packing. The scope of the order excludes fresh 
red

[[Page 6525]]

raspberries and block frozen red raspberries (i.e., puree, straight 
pack, juice stock, and juice concentrate).
    The merchandise subject to this order is currently classifiable 
under subheading 0811.20.2020 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (``HTSUS''). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided 
for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise under the order is dispositive.

Period of Review

    The period of review (``POR'') is July 1, 2004, through June 30, 
2005.

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act''), during October 2006, we verified the cost information 
provided by Valle Frio and Framparque in Chile using standard 
verification procedures, including examination of relevant financial 
records and selection of original documentation containing relevant 
information. The Department reported its findings on December 18, 2006. 
See Memorandum from Angela S. Strom and Heidi K. Schriefer to the File, 
``Verification of the Cost Response of Valle Frio in the 2004-2005 
Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order of Individually 
Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile,'' dated December 18, 2006 
(``Cost Verification Report - Valle Frio''), which is on file in the 
Central Records Unit (``CRU'') in room B-099 of the main Department 
building.
    As explained in the Preliminary Results, during March to April 
2006, we verified the sales and cost information provided by Olmue and 
SANCO in Chile using standard verification procedures, including 
examination of relevant sales and financial records, and selection of 
original documentation containing relevant information. The Department 
reported its findings on July 5, July 6, and July 27, 2006. See 
Memorandum to the File, ``Verification of the Sales Response of 
Santiago Comercio Exterior S.A. in the 2004-2005 Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review of Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from 
Chile,'' dated July 5, 2006; Memorandum to the File, ``Verification of 
the Cost Response of Santiago Comercio Exterior S.A. in the Antidumping 
Review of Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile,'' dated 
July 6, 2006; and Memorandum to the File, ``Verification of the Sales 
and Cost of Production Responses of Fruticola Olmu[eacute] S.A. in the 
2004-2005 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Individually Quick 
Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile,'' dated July 27, 2006. These reports 
are on file in the CRU in room B-099 of the main Department building.

Determination to Revoke In Part

    The Department ``may revoke, in whole or part'' an antidumping 
order upon completion of a review under section 751 of the Act. While 
Congress has not specified the procedures that the Department must 
follow in revoking an order, the Department has developed a procedure 
for revocation that is described in 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2). In 
determining whether to revoke an antidumping duty order in part, the 
Secretary will consider: (A) whether one or more exporters or producers 
covered by the order have sold the merchandise at not less than normal 
value (``NV'') for a period of at least three consecutive years; (B) 
whether, for any exporter or producer that the Secretary previously has 
determined to have sold the subject merchandise at less than NV, the 
exporter or producer agrees in writing to its immediate reinstatement 
in the order, as long as any exporter or producer is subject to the 
order, if the Secretary concludes that the exporter or producer, 
subsequent to the revocation, sold the subject merchandise at less than 
NV; and (C) whether the continued application of the antidumping duty 
order is otherwise necessary to offset dumping.
    The Department's regulations require, inter alia, that a company 
requesting revocation submit the following: (1) a certification that 
the company has sold the subject merchandise at not less than NV in the 
current review period and that the company will not sell at less than 
NV in the future; (2) a certification that the company sold the subject 
merchandise in commercial quantities in each of the three years forming 
the basis of the receipt of such a request; and (3) an agreement that 
the order will be reinstated if the company is subsequently found to be 
selling the subject merchandise at less than fair value. See 19 CFR 
351.222(e)(1)(i)-(iii). See, e.g., Notice of Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination Not to Revoke 
the Antidumping Duty Order: Brass Sheet and Strip From the Netherlands, 
65 FR 742, 743 (January 6, 2000).
    On July 29, 2005, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222(e)(1), SANCO requested 
revocation of the antidumping duty order as it pertains to that 
company. With its request for revocation, SANCO provided each of the 
certifications required under 19 CFR 351.222(e). Consistent with the 
Preliminary Results, we continue to find that the request from SANCO 
meets all of the criteria under 19 CFR 351.222(e)(1).
    As explained in the preliminary and these final results, our 
calculations show that SANCO sold IQF red raspberries at not less than 
NV during the current review period. In addition, SANCO sold IQF red 
raspberries at not less than NV during the 2003-2004 and 2001-2003 
review periods (i.e., SANCO's dumping margin was zero or de minimis). 
See Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: 
Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries From Chile, 70 FR 6618, 6620 
(Feb. 8, 2005), covering the period December 31, 2001, through June 30, 
2003; see also Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile: 
Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 
FR 72788 (Dec. 7, 2005), covering the period July 1, 2003, through June 
30, 2004.
    Moreover, based on our examination of the sales data submitted by 
SANCO, we find that SANCO sold the subject merchandise in the United 
States in commercial quantities in each of the consecutive years cited 
by SANCO to support its request for revocation. See Memorandum from 
Yasmin Bordas to Stephen J. Claeys, ``Preliminary Determination to 
Revoke in Part the Antidumping Duty Order on Individually Quick Frozen 
Red Raspberries from Chile for Santiago Comercio Exterior Exportaciones 
Sociedad Anonima,'' dated July 31, 2006, which is on file in room B-099 
of the CRU.
    Finally, we find that application of the antidumping order to SANCO 
is no longer warranted for the following reasons: (1) as noted above, 
the company had zero or de minimis margins for a period of at least 
three consecutive years; (2) the company has agreed to immediate 
reinstatement of the order if the Department finds that it has resumed 
making sales at less than NV; and (3) the continued application of the 
order is not otherwise necessary to offset dumping.
    Therefore, we determine that SANCO qualifies for revocation of the 
order on IQF red raspberries pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2) and that 
the order, with respect to subject merchandise exported by SANCO, 
should be revoked. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.222(f)(3), we are 
terminating the suspension of liquidation for subject merchandise 
exported by SANCO that was entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after July 1, 2005, and will instruct U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (``CBP'') to refund

[[Page 6526]]

with interest any cash deposits for such entries.

Collapsing Determination

    As explained in the Preliminary Results, we have determined that 
Framparque should be collapsed with Valle Frio for the purposes of this 
review. See Memorandum to Susan Kuhbach, Director, ``Collapsing of 
Sociedad Agroindustrial Valle Frio Ltda.,'' dated July 31, 2006.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this review are addressed in the February 5, 2007, Issues and Decision 
Memorandum for the Third Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of 
Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries from Chile (``Decision 
Memorandum''), which is hereby adopted by this notice. Attached to this 
notice as an appendix is a list of the issues which parties have raised 
and to which we have responded in the Decision Memorandum. 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 Department's CRU. In addition, a complete version of the 
Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Web at http://
ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content.
    For SANCO, Vitafoods, and Valles Andinos, we made no changes to the 
calculations from the Preliminary Results. See Memorandum from Team, 
through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ``Preliminary Results 
Calculation Memorandum for Santiago Comercio Exterior Exportaciones 
Sociedad Anonima,'' dated July 31, 2006; Memorandum from Team, through 
Brandon Farlander, to the File, ``Preliminary Results Calculation 
Memorandum for Alimentos Naturales Vitafoods S.A.,'' dated July 31, 
2006; Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, 
``Preliminary Results Calculation Memorandum for Valles Andinos, 
S.A.,'' dated July 31, 2006; which are on file in the Department's CRU.

Use of Facts Otherwise Available

    Pursuant to section 776 of the Act, and for the reasons explained 
in the Preliminary Results, we have continued to apply adverse facts 
available (``AFA'') for the cost of production (``COP'') of the 
merchandise under review that was supplied by Arlavan's non-responsive 
supplier, DICAF Exportaciones Ltd. (``DICAF'').\1\ However, for the 
final results, we have changed the calculation methodology for this 
COP. See Changes Since the Preliminary Results: Arlavan, below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ We note that in the Preliminary Results, we stated that we 
were applying AFA pursuant to section 776(a)(1)(D), which is the 
provision for application of facts available when information cannot 
be verified. Our analysis, however, is based on section 
776(a)(1)(A), the provision for application of facts available when 
an interested party withholds requested information, and section 
776(b) and (c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the reasons explained in the Preliminary Results, we have 
continued to apply neutral facts available to one of Olmue's reported 
control numbers for which it did not provide COP information. See 
Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, 
``Preliminary Results Calculation Memorandum for Fruticola Olmu[eacute] 
S.A.,'' dated July 31, 2006.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our findings at verification, and analysis of comments 
received, for Arlavan, Olmue, Valle Frio/Framparque, and VBM, we have 
made adjustments to the preliminary results calculation methodologies 
in calculating the final dumping margins in these proceedings. Brief 
descriptions of the company-specific changes are discussed below.

Arlavan

    We modified our methodology for calculating the COP of the 
merchandise that was supplied to Arlavan by DICAF Exportaciones Ltd. 
(``DICAF'')/Agroindustrial del Maule (``Agromaule'').\2\ Because DICAF/
Agromaule did not respond to our questionnaire, we based DICAF/
Agromaule's cost on AFA. In the preliminary results, for each form of 
the merchandise under review, we calculated the simple average of the 
three highest COPs among all producers and used this as the DICAF/
Agromaule COP. For the final results, we have used a weighted average 
of the COPs of the two producers who had the highest COPs of whole and 
non-whole finished IQF red raspberries. See Memorandum from Team, 
through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ``Final Results Calculation 
Memorandum for Arlavan S.A.,'' dated February 5, 2007.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Although DICAF and Agromaule are legally two separate 
entities, the products, services, and personnel, as well as contact 
information, were the same. Although separately incorporated, 
Agromaule has the same familial ownership as DICAF. We refer in the 
remainder of this memorandum to ``DICAF/Agromaule.'' For additional 
explanation of company ownership, see Preliminary Results at 45004.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Olmue

    We corrected a clerical error in the comparison market and margin 
programs. Specifically, we placed parentheses around the summation of 
the gross unit price and billing adjustment variables in the 
recalculation of certain credit expenses, as necessary. See Memorandum 
from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, ``Final Results 
Calculation Memorandum for Fruticola Olmue S.A.,'' dated February 5, 
2007.

Valle Frio/Framparque

    For the final results, we used Valle Frio/Framparque's revised 
comparison market packing expenses as a result of errors discovered at 
verification. See Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to 
the File, ``Final Results Calculation Memorandum for Sociedad 
Agroindustrial Valle Frio Ltda./Agricola Framparque,'' dated February 
5, 2007.
    We made the following adjustments to Valle Frio's costs used in the 
Preliminary Results.
     We adjusted direct material, variable overhead and fixed 
overhead costs based on the information obtained at verification.
     We reclassified a portion of the reported indirect selling 
expenses as general and administrative (``G&A'') expenses based on the 
corrections to the allocation criteria discovered at verification.
     We adjusted the cost of sales denominator used to compute 
the G&A and financial expense ratios in accordance with the specific 
adjustments made to cost of manufacturing (``COM'').
    We made the following adjustments to Framparque's costs used in the 
Preliminary Results.
     We used Framparque's cost buildup that was corrected at 
verification to calculate the costs of merchandise sold to the third 
country market. Using this cost buildup, we made additional adjustments 
to the direct material costs and have recalculated direct labor, 
variable overhead and fixed overhead costs.
     Consistent with the Preliminary Results, we removed all 
G&A and financial expense items from the variable overhead cost 
calculation, included these amounts in the numerator of the G&A and 
financial expense ratios, and computed the G&A and financial expense 
ratios for the fiscal year.
     We adjusted the cost of sales denominator used to compute 
the G&A and financial expense ratios in

[[Page 6527]]

accordance with the specific adjustments made to COM.
    See Memorandum from Angela Strom to Neal Halper, ``Cost of 
Production and Constructed Value Calculation Adjustments for the Final 
Results - Sociedad Agroindustrial Valle Frio Ltda./Agricola 
Framparque,'' dated February 5, 2007 (``Valle Frio/Framparque Cost 
Calculation Memorandum''); see also Cost Verification Report - Valle 
Frio.

VBM

     We revised the freight costs for two home market sales, 
pursuant to a clerical error correction letter submitted by VBM on 
October 12, 2006, and additional supporting documentation submitted by 
VBM on November 27, 2006. See Letter submitted to the Department by 
VBM, ``Clarification of Information on the Record,'' dated October 12, 
2006; see also VBM's Supplemental Questionnaire Response, dated 
November 27, 2006. For additional discussion of this change, see 
Decision Memorandum at Comment 15.
     In the computer program used to calculate NV, we have 
corrected a currency conversion error for VBM's warehousing expenses. 
See Memorandum from Team, through Brandon Farlander, to the File, 
``Final Results Calculation Memorandum for Vital Berry Marketing 
S.A.,'' dated February 5, 2007. For additional discussion of this 
change, see Decision Memorandum at Comment 16.

Results of the COP Test

    Pursuant to section 773(b)(2)(C)(i) of the Act, where less than 20 
percent of sales of a given product were at prices less than the COP, 
we did not disregard any below-cost sales of that product because we 
determined that the below-cost sales were not made in ``substantial 
quantities.'' Where 20 percent or more of a respondent's sales of a 
given product during the POR were at prices less than the COP, we 
determined such sales to have been made in ``substantial quantities.'' 
See section 773(b)(2)(C) of the Act. The sales were made within an 
extended period of time in accordance with section 773(b)(2)(B) of the 
Act, because we examined below-cost sales occurring during the entire 
POR. In such cases, because we compared prices to POR-average costs, we 
also determined that such sales were not made at prices which would 
permit recovery of all costs within a reasonable period of time, in 
accordance with section 773(b)(2)(D) of the Act.
    For Olmue, Valles Andinos, VBM, and Vitafoods, we found that, for 
certain products, more than 20 percent of comparison market sales were 
at prices less than the COP and, thus, the below-cost sales were made 
within an extended period of time in substantial quantities. In 
addition, these sales were made at prices that did not provide for the 
recovery of costs within a reasonable period of time. We therefore 
excluded these sales and used the remaining sales, if any, as the basis 
for determining NV, in accordance with section 773(b)(1) of the Act.

Final Results of Review

    As a result of our review, we determine that the following 
weighted-average margins exist for the period of July 1, 2004, through 
June 30, 2005:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                       Weighted-average

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), for all sales made by respondents 
for which they have reported the importer of record and the entered 
value of the U.S. sales, we have calculated importer-specific 
assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping 
duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of 
those sales.
    Where the respondents did not report the entered value for U.S. 
sales, we have calculated importer-specific assessment rates for the 
merchandise in question by aggregating the dumping margins calculated 
for all U.S. sales to each importer and dividing this amount by the 
total quantity of those sales. To determine whether the duty assessment 
rates were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 
19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculated importer-specific ad valorem rates 
based on the estimated entered value. Where the assessment rate is 
above de minimis, we will instruct CBP to assess duties on all entries 
of subject merchandise by that importer. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to 
antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent).
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This 
clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR produced by the respondent for which it did not know its 
merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others 
rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in 
the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 
days after the date of publication of these final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    We are revoking the order in part, with respect to SANCO. 
Therefore, no future cash deposits will be required for the subject 
merchandise exported by SANCO. For all other exporters/manufacturers, 
the following antidumping duty deposits will be required on all 
shipments of IQF red raspberries from Chile entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption, effective on or after the publication date 
of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by 
section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) the cash deposit rate for the 
reviewed companies will be the rates established in the final results 
of this administrative review (except no cash deposit will be required 
if its weighted-average margin is de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 
percent); (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters 
not covered in this review but covered in the original less-than-fair-
value investigation or a previous review, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the most recent rate published in the final 
determination or final results for which the manufacturer or exporter 
received an individual rate; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a previous review, or the original investigation, but 
the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established 
for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and 
(4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm

[[Page 6528]]

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

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.
