AGENCY: Initiation of Investigation cprice-sewell on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES The Petition On February 8, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) received a petition on imports of sodium hexametaphosphate (‘‘SHMP’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) filed in proper form by ICL Performance Products, LP and Innophos, Inc. (‘‘Petitioners’’). The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is July 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. In accordance with section 732(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), Petitioners alleged that imports of SHMP from the PRC are being, or are VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:35 Mar 05, 2007 Jkt 211001 likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value within the meaning of section 731 of the Act, and that such imports are materially injuring and threaten to materially injure an industry in the United States. The Department issued supplemental questions to Petitioners on February 12, 2007, and February 21, 2007. Petitioners filed their responses on February 16, 2007, and February 23, 2007. Scope of Investigation The merchandise subject to this investigation is Sodium hexametaphosphate (‘‘SHMP’’). SHMP is a water-soluble polyphosphate glass that consists of a distribution of polyphosphate chain lengths. It is a collection of sodium polyphosphate polymers built on repeating NaPO 3 units. SHMP has a P 2 O 5 content from 60 to 71 percent. Alternate names for SHMP include the following: Calgon; Calgon S; Glassy Sodium Phosphate; Sodium Polyphosphate, Glassy; Metaphosphoric Acid; Sodium Salt; Sodium Acid Metaphosphate; Graham’s Salt; Sodium Hex; Polyphosphoric Acid, Sodium Salt; Glass H; Hexaphos; Sodaphos; Vitrafos; and BAC-N-FOS. SHMP is typically sold as a white powder or granule (crushed) and may also be sold in the form of sheets (glass) or as a liquid solution. It is imported under heading 2835.39.5000, HTSUS. It may also be imported as a blend or mixture under heading 3823.90.3900, HTSUS. The American Chemical Society, Chemical Abstract Service (‘‘CAS’’) has assigned the name ‘‘Polyphosphoric Acid, Sodium Salt’’ to SHMP. The CAS registry number is 68915–31–1. However, SHMP is commonly identified by CAS No. 10124–56–8 in the market. For purposes of the investigation, the narrative description is dispositive, not the tariff heading, CAS registry number or CAS name. The product covered by this investigation includes SHMP in all grades, whether food grade or technical grade. The product covered by this investigation includes SHMP without regard to chain length i.e., whether regular or long chain. The product covered by this investigation includes SHMP without regard to physical form, whether glass, sheet, crushed, granule, powder, fines, or other form. However, the product covered by this investigation does not include SHMP when imported in a blend with other materials in which the SHMP accounts for less than 50 percent by volume of the finished product. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Comments on Scope of Investigation During our review of the petition, we discussed the scope with Petitioners to ensure that it accurately reflects the product for which the domestic industry is seeking relief. Moreover, as discussed in the preamble to the Department’s regulations, we are setting aside a period for interested parties to raise issues regarding product coverage. See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997). The Department encourages all interested parties to submit such comments within 20 calendar days of publication of this initiation notice. Comments should be addressed to Import Administration’s Central Records Unit in Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. The period of scope consultations is intended to provide the Department with ample opportunity to consider all comments and consult with interested parties prior to the issuance of the preliminary determination. Determination of Industry Support for the Petition Section 732(b)(1) of the Act requires that a petition be filed by an interested party described in subparagraph (C), (D), (E), (F) or (G) of section 771(9) of the Act, by or on behalf of the domestic industry. In order to determine whether a petition has been filed by or on behalf of the domestic industry, the Department, pursuant to section 732(c)(4)(A) of the Act, determines whether a minimum percentage of the relevant industry supports the petition. A petition meets this requirement if the domestic producers or workers who support the petition account for: (i) At least 25 percent of the total production of the domestic like product; and (ii) more than 50 percent of the production of the domestic like product produced by that portion of the industry expressing support for, or opposition to, the petition. Moreover, section 732(c)(4)(D) of the Act provides that, if the petition does not establish support of domestic producers or workers accounting for more than 50 percent of the total production of the domestic like product, the Department shall: (i) Poll the industry or rely on other information in order to determine if there is support for the petition, as required by subparagraph (A), or (ii) if there is a large number of producers in the industry the Department may determine industry support using a statistically valid sampling method.

Analysis of Comments Received

    The issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this administrative review are addressed in the Issues and Decisions 
Memorandum for the Final Results of the Administrative Review of the 
Antidumping Duty Order on Oil Country Tubular Goods (``OCTG'') from 
Korea, February 27, 2007 (Issues and Decisions Memorandum), which is 
hereby adopted by this notice. The Issues and Decisions Memorandum is 
on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU), room B-099 of the Department 
of Commerce main building and can be accessed directly at http://
ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the Issues 
and Decisions Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the issues 
addressed in the Issues and Decisions Memorandum is appended to this 
notice.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made 
changes in the calculations for the final dumping margin. The changes 
are discussed in detail in the Issues and Decisions Memorandum and in 
the Memorandum from Dara Iserson, Case Analyst, to the File: Analysis 
of Husteel Corporation (``Husteel'') for the Final Results of the 
Administrative Review of Oil Country Tubular Goods, Other Than Drill 
Pipe from Korea, and Memorandum from Nicholas Czajkowski, Case Analyst, 
to the File: Analysis of SeaH Steel Corporation (``SeAH'') for the 
Final Results of the Administrative Review of Oil Country Tubular 
Goods, Other Than Drill Pipe from Korea, dated February 27, 2007, on 
file in the CRU.

Final Results of Review

    As a result of our review, we determine that the following 
weighted-average margins exist for the period August 1, 2004, through 
July 31, 2005:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Manufacturer/Exporter                  Margin (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
SeAH Steel Corporation..............................                4.73
Husteel Co., Ltd....................................   0.39 (de minimis)
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, pursuant to section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b). The Department calculated importer- specific duty 
assessment rates (or, when the importer was unknown by the respondent, 
customer-specific duty assessment rates) on the basis of the ratio of 
the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined 
sales observations involving each importer to the total entered value 
of the examined sales observations for that importer. The Department 
intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date 
of publication of these final results of review.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these 
final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know 
their 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 discussion of this 
clarification, see Notice of Policy Concerning Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following antidumping duty cash deposit rates will be effective 
upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
all shipments of OCTG from Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results, 
as provided for by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) for SeAH, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate shown above, (2) since the dumping margin 
for Husteel is de minimis (less than 0.50 percent), no cash deposit 
will be required for Husteel, 3) for previously reviewed or 
investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will be 
the company-specific rate established for the most recent period, (4) 
if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, 
or the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer 
is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recent period for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise, and (5) 
if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered by this 
review, a prior review, or the LTFV investigation, the cash deposit 
rate shall be the all others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation, which is 12.17 percent. See Final Determination of Sales 
at Less Than Fair Value: Oil Country Tubular Goods from Korea, 60 FR 
33561 (June 28, 1995). These deposit rates, when imposed, shall remain 
in effect until publication of the final results of the next 
administrative review.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final 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 (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a). 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 sanctionable violation.
    These final results of administrative review and this notice are 
issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.
