EFFECTIVE DATE: April 2, 2007. SUMMARY: On February 20, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) received a request from the exporter and producer Ayecue hsrobinson on PROD1PC76 with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:39 Mar 30, 2007 Jkt 211001 (Liaocheng) Foodstuff Co., Ltd. (‘‘Ayecue’’) to conduct a new shipper review (‘‘NSR’’) of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we are initiating a NSR of Ayecue. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas Martin or Mark Manning; AD/ CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3936 or (202) 482– 5253, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department received a timely request from Ayecue on February 20, 2007, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(c), for a NSR of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC, which has a February anniversary month. See Notice of Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Preserved Mushrooms From the People’s Republic of China, 64 FR 8308 (February 19, 1999). Upon review, the Department determinated that Ayecue’s February 20, 2007, request was deficient in certain areas. The Department issued a supplemental to Ayecue on February 27, 2007. On March 19, 2007, Ayecue submitted a revised request for a NSR that provided the requested information. Ayecue identified itself as a producer and exporter of preserved mushrooms. As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i) and (iii)(A), Ayecue certified that it did not export preserved mushrooms to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’), and that it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer which exported preserved mushrooms 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), Ayecue 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. Based on PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15657 the information submitted by Ayecue, we have determined that Ayecue has met the statutory and regulatory requirements for the initiation of a NSR. The Department queried the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) entry database to confirm that the shipment made by Ayecue had officially entered the United States via assignment of an entry date in the Customs database by CBP. In addition, the Department confirmed the existence of Ayecue 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 NSR for Ayecue. See Memorandum to the File, from Thomas Martin, International Trade Compliance Analyst, through Abdelali Elouaradia, Director, Office 4, AD/CVD Operations, ‘‘Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review: Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated March 27, 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 NSR, initiated in the month immediately following the anniversary month, will be the 12month period immediately preceding the anniversary month. Therefore, the POR for the NSR of Ayecue is February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007. 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 Notice of 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 Ayecue, including a separate rates section. The review will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that Ayecue is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of preserved mushrooms. However, if Ayecue 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 NSR will be rescinded as to the company.

Section 1632 of H.R. 4 temporarily suspends the authority of the Department to instruct CBP to collect a bond or other security in lieu of a cash deposit in NSRs. Therefore, the posting of a bond under section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e) in lieu of a cash deposit is not available in this case. Importers of subject merchandise manufactured and exported by Ayecue must continue to pay a cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties on each entry of subject merchandise at the current PRC– wide rate of 198.63 percent. Interested parties that require access to proprietary information in this NSR 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: March 27, 2007. Stephen J.

Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People's Republic of China: 
Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 2, 2007.
SUMMARY: On February 20, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') received a request from the exporter and producer Ayecue 
(Liaocheng) Foodstuff Co., Ltd. (``Ayecue'') to conduct a new shipper 
review (``NSR'') of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved 
mushrooms from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). In accordance 
with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we are initiating a NSR of Ayecue.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas Martin or Mark Manning; AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-3936 
or (202) 482-5253, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department received a timely request from Ayecue on February 
20, 2007, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(c), for a NSR of the antidumping duty order on certain 
preserved mushrooms from the PRC, which has a February anniversary 
month. See Notice of Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less 
Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Preserved Mushrooms 
From the People's Republic of China, 64 FR 8308 (February 19, 1999). 
Upon review, the Department determinated that Ayecue's February 20, 
2007, request was deficient in certain areas. The Department issued a 
supplemental to Ayecue on February 27, 2007. On March 19, 2007, Ayecue 
submitted a revised request for a NSR that provided the requested 
information.
    Ayecue identified itself as a producer and exporter of preserved 
mushrooms. As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i) and (iii)(A), Ayecue 
certified that it did not export preserved mushrooms to the United 
States during the period of investigation (``POI''), and that it has 
never been affiliated with any exporter or producer which exported 
preserved mushrooms 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), Ayecue 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. Based on 
the information submitted by Ayecue, we have determined that Ayecue has 
met the statutory and regulatory requirements for the initiation of a 
NSR. The Department queried the U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') entry database to confirm that the shipment made by Ayecue 
had officially entered the United States via assignment of an entry 
date in the Customs database by CBP. In addition, the Department 
confirmed the existence of Ayecue 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 NSR for Ayecue. See Memorandum to the File, from Thomas 
Martin, International Trade Compliance Analyst, through Abdelali 
Elouaradia, Director, Office 4, AD/CVD Operations, ``Initiation of 
Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review: Certain Preserved Mushrooms from 
the People's Republic of China,'' dated March 27, 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 NSR, 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 NSR of Ayecue is 
February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007.
    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 Notice of 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 
Ayecue, including a separate rates section. The review will proceed if 
the responses provide sufficient indication that Ayecue is not subject 
to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its 
exports of preserved mushrooms. However, if Ayecue 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 
NSR will be rescinded as to the company.

[[Page 15658]]

    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 CBP to collect a bond or other 
security in lieu of a cash deposit in NSRs. Therefore, the posting of a 
bond under section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e) 
in lieu of a cash deposit is not available in this case. Importers of 
subject merchandise manufactured and exported by Ayecue must continue 
to pay a cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties on each entry of 
subject merchandise at the current PRC-wide rate of 198.63 percent.
    Interested parties that require access to proprietary information 
in this NSR 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: March 27, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
