Download as PDF 10150 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 44 / Wednesday, March 7, 2007 / Notices sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES established in 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 the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from the People’s Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994). Under the separate–rates criteria, the Department assigns separate rates in NME cases only if the respondent can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto governmental control over export activities. By failing to allow the Department to verify the accuracy of their submissions, Leping Lotai, Nanjing Merry, and Shanghai Strong, have not demonstrated they are free of government control and are therefore not eligible to receive a separate rate. In the Notices of Initiation, the Department stated that an exporter unable to demonstrate the company’s eligibility for a separate rate does not meet the requirements of 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii) and its new shipper review will be rescinded. See May 5, 2006, Initiation Notice at 26454; see also May 31, 2006, Initiation Notice at 30866. Therefore, the Department is preliminarily rescinding the new shipper reviews of Leping Lotai, Nanjing Merry, and Shanghai Strong.

SUMMARY: On November 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the 
Department) initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on 
honey from Argentina and the People's Republic of China (PRC) 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 adequate substantive 
responses filed on behalf of domestic interested parties, and no 
response from respondent interested parties, the Department conducted 
expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of these antidumping duty orders. As 
a result of these sunset reviews, the Department finds that revocation 
of the antidumping duty orders would be likely to lead to continuation 
or recurrence of dumping at the levels identified below in the ``Final 
Results of Review'' section of this notice.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 7, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

Background

    On November 1, 2006, the Department initiated sunset reviews of the 
antidumping duty orders on honey from Argentina and the PRC pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') 
Reviews, 71 FR 64242 (November 1, 2006). The Department received 
notices of intent to participate from two domestic interested parties, 
American Honey Producers Association and Sioux Honey Association

specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department's regulations. 
Domestic

interested parties claimed interested party status under section 
771(9)(C) of the Act as U.S. producers of a domestic like product and 
under section 771(9)(E) as a trade association whose members produce 
the domestic like product in the United States. We received complete 
substantive responses from domestic interested parties within the 30-
day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). However, we did not 
receive any responses from any respondent interested parties. As a 
result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted expedited sunset 
reviews of these orders.

Scope of the Orders

    For purposes of these orders, the products covered are natural 
honey, artificial honey containing more than 50 percent natural honey 
by weight, preparations of natural honey containing more than 50 
percent natural honey by weight, and flavored honey. The subject 
merchandise includes all grades and colors of honey whether in liquid, 
creamed, comb, cut comb, or chunk form, and whether packaged for retail 
or in bulk form.
    The merchandise covered by these orders is currently classifiable 
under subheadings 0409.00.00, 1702.90.90, and 2106.90.99 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the 
HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the Department's written description of the merchandise under this 
order is dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

Decision Memorandum'' from Stephen Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary 
for AD/CVD Operations, Import Administration, to David M. Spooner,

(Decision Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by this notice. The 
issues discussed in the Decision Memorandum include the likelihood of 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the margin 
likely to prevail if the orders were revoked. Parties can find a 
complete discussion of all issues raised in these sunset reviews and 
the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is
