Download as PDF 10159 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 44 / Wednesday, March 7, 2007 / Notices Initiation of New Shipper 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 find that Golden Well and Mei Jia’s requests meet the initiation threshold requirements and we are initiating new shipper reviews for shipments of wooden bedroom furniture exported by Golden Well that were produced by Zhangzhou XYM and shipments of wooden bedroom furniture produced and exported by Mei Jia. See Memorandum to the File through Wendy J. Frankel, Director, New Shipper Initiation Checklist, dated, February 28, 2007. The Department will conduct these new shipper reviews according to the deadlines set forth in section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. 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 twelve-month period immediately preceding the anniversary month. Therefore, the POR for the new shipper reviews of Golden Well and Mei Jia will be January 1 through December 31, 2006. It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non–market economies, to require 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. Accordingly, we will issue questionnaires to Golden Well and Mei Jia, including a separate–rate section. The reviews will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that Golden Well and Mei Jia are not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to their exports of wooden bedroom furniture. However, if either Golden Well or Mei Jia does not demonstrate its eligibility for a separate rate, it will be deemed not separate from other companies that exported during the POI, and its new shipper review will be rescinded. On August 17, 2006, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (H.R. 4) was signed into law. Section 1632 of H.R. 4 temporarily suspends the authority of the Department to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect a bond or other security in lieu of a cash deposit in new shipper reviews. Therefore, the posting of a bond or other security under section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act in lieu of a cash deposit is not available in this case. Importers of wooden bedroom furniture 1) produced by Zhangzhou XYM and exported by Golden Well, or 2) produced and exported by Mei Jia must continue to post cash deposits of estimated antidumping duties on each entry of subject merchandise (i.e., wooden bedroom furniture) at the PRC–wide entity rate of 198.08 percent. Interested parties that need access to proprietary information in this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This initiation and notice are issued in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: February 28, 2007. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

It is the Department’s policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to investigation in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a separate rate. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:25 Mar 06, 2007 Jkt 211001 To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from government control of its export activities to be entitled to a separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People’s Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991) (‘‘Sparklers’’), as amplified by Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from the People’s Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994) (‘‘Silicon Carbide’’). In accordance with PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the separate-rates criteria, the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME cases only if respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto government control over export activities. The Department recently modified the process by which exporters and producers may obtain separate-rate status in NME investigations. See Policy Bulletin 05.1: Separate-Rates Practice and Application of Combination Rates in Antidumping Investigations Involving Non-Market Economy Countries, (April 5, 2005), available on E:\FR\FM\07MRN1.SGM 07MRN1 sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 44 / Wednesday, March 7, 2007 / Notices the Department’s Web site at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/policy/bull05-1.pdf. The process now requires the submission of a separate-rate status application. Due to the large number of firms requesting an administrative review in this proceeding, the Department is requiring all firms listed above that wish to qualify for separate-rate status in this administrative review to complete, as appropriate, either a separate-rate status application or certification, as described below. For this administrative review, in order to demonstrate separate-rate eligibility, the Department requires entities for whom a review was requested that were assigned a separate rate in the less than fair value investigation of this proceeding to certify that they continue to meet the criteria for obtaining a separate rate. The certification form will be available on the Department’s Web site at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/ on the date of publication of this Federal Register. In responding to the certification, please follow the ‘‘Instructions for Filing the Certification’’ in the Separate Rate Certification. Certifications are due to the Department no later than March 21, 2007. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who purchase the subject merchandise and export it to the United States. For entities that have not previously been assigned a separate rate, to demonstrate eligibility for such, the Department requires a separate-rate status application. The separate-rate status application will be available on the Department’s Web site at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/ on the date of publication of this Federal Register. In responding to the separate-rate status application, refer to the instructions contained in the application. Separate-rate status applications are due to the Department no later than May 7, 2007. The deadline and requirement for submitting a separate-rate status application applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase the subject merchandise and export it to the United States. Section 777A(c)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) directs the Department to calculate individual dumping margins for each known exporter and producer of the subject merchandise. Where it is not practicable to examine all known producers/ exporters of subject merchandise, section 777A(c)(2) of the Act permits the Department to examine either (1) a sample of exporters, producers or types of products that is statistically valid VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:25 Mar 06, 2007 Jkt 211001 based on the information available at the time of selection; or (2) exporters and producers accounting for the largest volume of the subject merchandise from the exporting country that can be reasonably examined. Due to the large number of firms requested for an administrative review and the Department’s experience regarding the resulting administrative burden to review each company for which a request has been made, the Department is considering exercising its authority to limit the number of respondents selected for review using one of the two methods described above. Quantity and Value Questionnaire In advance of issuance of the antidumping questionnaire, we will also be requiring all parties for whom a review is requested to respond to a Quantity and Value (‘‘Q&V’’) questionnaire, which will request information on the respective quantity and U.S. dollar sales value of all exports to the United States of wooden bedroom furniture during the period of January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. Additionally, in the event sampling is employed, in order to determine a sampling method that is representative of the sales under review, the Department will require that each company complete the economic characteristics section of the Q&V questionnaire. The Q&V questionnaire will be available on the Department’s Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/ on the date of publication of this Federal Register. The responses to the Q&V questionnaire are due to the Department no later than March 21, 2007. Due to the time constraints imposed by our statutory and regulatory deadlines, and the need to preserve the statistical validity of the sampling methodology, the Department may not be able to grant any extensions for the submission of the Q&V questionnaire. In responding to the Q&V questionnaire, refer to the instructions contained in the Q&V questionnaire. Notice This notice constitutes public notification to all firms requested for review and seeking separate-rate status in this administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC that they must submit a separate-rate status application or certification (as appropriate) as described above, and a complete response to the Q&V questionnaire within the time limits established in this notice of initiation of administrative review in order to receive consideration for separate-rate PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10163 status. In other words, the Department will not give consideration to any separate-rates certification or separate rate-status application made by parties who fail to timely respond to the Q&V questionnaire or fail to timely submit the requisite separate-rate certification or application. All information submitted by respondents in this administrative review is subject to verification. To allow the possibility for sampling and to complete this segment within the statutory time frame, the Department will be limited in its ability to extend deadlines on the above submissions. As noted above, the separate-rate certification, the separaterate status application, and the Q&V questionnaire will be available on the Department’s Web site at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/ on the date of publication of this Federal Register. However, the Department will also issue, as a courtesy to the parties, a letter of notification of these requirements to the parties requested for review. Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Instructions for filing such applications may be found on the Department’s Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1675(a)), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: February 28, 2007. Wendy J.

\1\ If one of the above named companies does not qualify for a separate
  rate, all other exporters of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC
  that have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered
  by this review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named
  exporter is a part.
* These companies received a separate rate in the prior segment (the
  less-than-fair-value-investigation) of this proceeding.

Separate Rates

    In proceedings involving non-market economy (``NME'') countries, 
the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies 
within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should 
be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the 
Department's policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to 
investigation in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can 
demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to 
a separate rate.
    To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from 
government control of its export activities to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the 
subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination 
of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People's Republic 
of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991) (``Sparklers''), as amplified by 
Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide 
from the People's Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994) 
(``Silicon Carbide''). In accordance with the separate-rates criteria, 
the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME cases only if 
respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto 
government control over export activities.
    The Department recently modified the process by which exporters and 
producers may obtain separate-rate status in NME investigations. See 
Policy Bulletin 05.1: Separate-Rates Practice and Application of 
Combination Rates in Antidumping Investigations Involving Non-Market 
Economy Countries, (April 5, 2005), available on

[[Page 10163]]

the Department's Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/policy/bull05-1.pdf. 
The process now requires the submission of a separate-rate status 
application.
    Due to the large number of firms requesting an administrative 
review in this proceeding, the Department is requiring all firms listed 
above that wish to qualify for separate-rate status in this 
administrative review to complete, as appropriate, either a separate-
rate status application or certification, as described below.
    For this administrative review, in order to demonstrate separate-
rate eligibility, the Department requires entities for whom a review 
was requested that were assigned a separate rate in the less than fair 
value investigation of this proceeding to certify that they continue to 
meet the criteria for obtaining a separate rate. The certification form 
will be available on the Department's Web site at http://
ia.ita.doc.gov/ on the date of publication of this Federal Register. In 
responding to the certification, please follow the ``Instructions for 
Filing the Certification'' in the Separate Rate Certification. 
Certifications are due to the Department no later than March 21, 2007. 
The deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies 
equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign 
sellers who purchase the subject merchandise and export it to the 
United States.
    For entities that have not previously been assigned a separate 
rate, to demonstrate eligibility for such, the Department requires a 
separate-rate status application. The separate-rate status application 
will be available on the Department's Web site at http://
ia.ita.doc.gov/ on the date of publication of this Federal Register. In 
responding to the separate-rate status application, refer to the 
instructions contained in the application. Separate-rate status 
applications are due to the Department no later than May 7, 2007. The 
deadline and requirement for submitting a separate-rate status 
application applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned 
firms, and foreign sellers that purchase the subject merchandise and 
export it to the United States.
    Section 777A(c)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act'') directs the Department to calculate individual dumping margins 
for each known exporter and producer of the subject merchandise. Where 
it is not practicable to examine all known producers/exporters of 
subject merchandise, section 777A(c)(2) of the Act permits the 
Department to examine either (1) a sample of exporters, producers or 
types of products that is statistically valid based on the information 
available at the time of selection; or (2) exporters and producers 
accounting for the largest volume of the subject merchandise from the 
exporting country that can be reasonably examined. Due to the large 
number of firms requested for an administrative review and the 
Department's experience regarding the resulting administrative burden 
to review each company for which a request has been made, the 
Department is considering exercising its authority to limit the number 
of respondents selected for review using one of the two methods 
described above.

Quantity and Value Questionnaire

    In advance of issuance of the antidumping questionnaire, we will 
also be requiring all parties for whom a review is requested to respond 
to a Quantity and Value (``Q&V'') questionnaire, which will request 
information on the respective quantity and U.S. dollar sales value of 
all exports to the United States of wooden bedroom furniture during the 
period of January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. Additionally, in 
the event sampling is employed, in order to determine a sampling method 
that is representative of the sales under review, the Department will 
require that each company complete the economic characteristics section 
of the Q&V questionnaire. The Q&V questionnaire will be available on 
the Department's Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/ on the date of 
publication of this Federal Register. The responses to the Q&V 
questionnaire are due to the Department no later than March 21, 2007. 
Due to the time constraints imposed by our statutory and regulatory 
deadlines, and the need to preserve the statistical validity of the 
sampling methodology, the Department may not be able to grant any 
extensions for the submission of the Q&V questionnaire. In responding 
to the Q&V questionnaire, refer to the instructions contained in the 
Q&V questionnaire.

Notice

    This notice constitutes public notification to all firms requested 
for review and seeking separate-rate status in this administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from 
the PRC that they must submit a separate-rate status application or 
certification (as appropriate) as described above, and a complete 
response to the Q&V questionnaire within the time limits established in 
this notice of initiation of administrative review in order to receive 
consideration for separate-rate status. In other words, the Department 
will not give consideration to any separate-rates certification or 
separate rate-status application made by parties who fail to timely 
respond to the Q&V questionnaire or fail to timely submit the requisite 
separate-rate certification or application. All information submitted 
by respondents in this administrative review is subject to 
verification. To allow the possibility for sampling and to complete 
this segment within the statutory time frame, the Department will be 
limited in its ability to extend deadlines on the above submissions. As 
noted above, the separate-rate certification, the separate-rate status 
application, and the Q&V questionnaire will be available on the 
Department's Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/ on the date of 
publication of this Federal Register. However, the Department will also 
issue, as a courtesy to the parties, a letter of notification of these 
requirements to the parties requested for review.
    Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. 
Instructions for filing such applications may be found on the 
Department's Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov.
    This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a) of 
the Act (19 U.S.C. 1675(a)), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).

    Dated: February 28, 2007.
