The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign–Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a– 81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on May 30, 2007. Subzone 57B (240 employees) was approved by the Board in 2001 for the manufacture of construction equipment, specifically wheel loaders and articulated haulers (Board Order 1164, 66 FR28890, 5/25/01), and authority was expanded on August 21, 2003 to include skid–steer loaders and compaction rollers (Board Order 1284, 68 FR 52383, 9/3/03). The subzone currently consists of two sites totaling 64 acres located at 2169 Hendersonville Road in Skyland, North Carolina and 1865 Hendersonville Road in Asheville, North Carolina. The current request involves an expansion of manufacturing capacity under FTZ procedures to include an additional 1,000 wheel loaders (up to 4,000 units annually) as well as to expand the scope of manufacturing activity conducted under FTZ procedures at Subzone 57B to include an additional finished product (excavators, up to 4,500 units annually). Finished excavators enter the United States duty–free. Volvo CENA is also requesting authority to conduct cab fabrication under FTZ procedures to produce cabs which will be used in excavator and wheel loader manufacturing. Currently the finished cabs are imported from the parent company in Sweden. Cabs fabricated at the Skyland site would replace those that are currently imported. Volvo CENA’s application indicates that foreign–sourced materials to be used under the expanded scope of authority fall into categories which are in the company’s current scope of authority. Duty rates on the imports sourced from abroad range from duty– free to 12%. Zone procedures for the expanded finished products and inputs would exempt Volvo CENA from customs duty payments on the foreign components used in export production to non–NAFTA countries. Currently, foreign inputs account for approximately 65 percent of the value of the excavator. For domestic and NAFTA markets, Volvo CENA could choose the duty rate that applies to the finished product (duty–free) for the components used in production when the finished products are entered for U.S. consumption from the zone. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31051 address below.

SUMMARY: On March 1, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) initiated the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on automotive replacement glass windshields from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). Because the domestic interested parties did not participate in the sunset review, the Department is revoking the antidumping duty order. EFFECTIVE DATE: April 4, 2007 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hilary E. Sadler, Esq., or Juanita Chen, AD/CVD Operations, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4340 and (202) 482–1904, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On April 4, 2002, the Department issued an antidumping duty order on automotive replacement glass windshields from the PRC. See Antidumping Duty Order: Automotive Replacement Glass Windshields from the People’s Republic of China, 67 FR 16087 (April 4, 2002). Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218, the Department initiated the sunset review of this order. See Notice of Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 72 FR 9307 (March 1, 2007). The Department did not receive a notice of intent to participate in the sunset review from domestic interested parties by the deadline date. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). As a result, the Department determined that no domestic party intends to participate in the sunset review. On March 21, 2007, the Department notified the International Trade Commission of its intent to issue a final determination revoking this antidumping duty order. Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are automotive replacement glass windshields, and parts thereof, whether clear or tinted, whether coated or not, PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and whether or not they include antennas, ceramics, mirror buttons or VIN notches, and whether or not they are encapsulated. Automotive replacement glass windshields are laminated safety glass (i.e., two layers of (typically float) glass with a sheet of clear or tinted plastic in between (usually polyvinyl butyral)), which are produced and sold for use by automotive glass installation shops to replace windshields in automotive vehicles (e.g., passenger cars, light trucks, vans, sport utility vehicles, etc.) that are cracked, broken or otherwise damaged. Automotive replacement glass windshields subject to this order are currently classifiable under subheading 7007.21.10.10 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Specifically excluded from the scope of the order are laminated automotive windshields sold for use in original assembly of vehicles. While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Determination to Revoke Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no domestic interested party responds to the notice of initiation, the Department shall issue a final determination revoking the order within 90 days after the initiation of the review. Because no domestic interested party filed a notice of intent to participate or a substantive response, the Department finds that no domestic interested party is participating in this review and is revoking this antidumping duty order. Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the effective date of revocation is April 4, 2007 (i.e., the fifth anniversary of the date of publication in the Federal Register of the notice of the antidumping duty order). The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to discontinue suspension of liquidation and collection of cash deposits on entries of the subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse on or after April 4, 2007, the effective date of revocation of the antidumping duty order. The Department will complete any pending administrative reviews of this order and will conduct administrative reviews of subject merchandise entered prior to the effective date of revocation in response to appropriately filed requests for review. This five-year sunset review and notice are in accordance with section E:\FR\FM\05JNN1.SGM 05JNN1
