Download as PDF 31278 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 108 / Wednesday, June 6, 2007 / Notices Export–Price Sales With respect to EP sales, for these preliminary results, we divided the total dumping margins (calculated as the difference between normal value and EP) for each exporter’s importer or customer by the total number of units the exporter sold to that importer or customer. We will direct CBP to assess the resulting per–unit dollar amount against each unit of merchandise in each of that importer’s/customer’s entries under the relevant order during the review period. Constructed Export–Price Sales For CEP sales (sampled and non– sampled), we divided the total dumping margins for the reviewed sales by the total entered value of those reviewed sales for each importer. We will direct CBP to assess the resulting percentage margin against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise on each of that importer’s entries under the relevant order during the review period. See 19 CFR 351.212(b). jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Cash–Deposit Requirements In order to derive a single weighted– average margin for each respondent, we weight–averaged the EP and CEP weighted–average deposit rates (using the EP and CEP, respectively, as the weighting factors). To accomplish this when we sampled CEP sales, we first calculated the total dumping margins for all CEP sales during the review period by multiplying the sample CEP margins by the ratio of total days in the review period to days in the sample weeks. We then calculated a total net value for all CEP sales during the review period by multiplying the sample CEP total net value by the same ratio. Finally, we divided the combined total dumping margins for both EP and CEP sales by the combined total value for both EP and CEP sales to obtain the deposit rate. Furthermore, with the exception of ball bearings and parts thereof from Singapore for which the Department revoked the order effective July 11, 2005, the following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative reviews for all shipments of ball bearings and parts thereof entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) the cash–deposit rates for the reviewed companies will be the rates established in the final results of reviews; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash– VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:59 Jun 05, 2007 Jkt 211001 deposit rate will continue to be the company–specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in these reviews, a prior review, or the less–than-fair–value investigations but the manufacturer is, the cash–deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) the cash–deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be the ‘‘All Others’’ rate for the relevant order made effective by the final results of review published on July 26, 1993.

These rates are the ‘‘All Others’’ rates from the relevant less–than-fair–value investigations. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importer This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. These preliminary results of administrative reviews are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: May 29, 2007. David M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On November 27, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain helical spring lock washers (‘‘HSLWs’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 68535 (November 27, 2006). This review covers the period October 1, 2005, through September 30, 2006. The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than July 3, 2007. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of the administrative review of HSLWs from the PRC within this time limit. Specifically, due to the verification of the questionnaire responses scheduled in June, we find that additional time is needed to complete these preliminary results.

See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber From the Republic of Korea and Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber From the Republic of Korea and Taiwan, 65 FR 33807 (May 25, 2000). On May 1, 2006, the Department published a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ of this order. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 25565 (May 1, 2006). On May 31, 2006, Wellman, Inc.; Invista, S.a.r.L.; and DAK Americas, LLC (collectively, ‘‘the petitioners’’) requested administrative reviews of Huvis Corporation (‘‘Huvis’’); Saehan Industries, Inc. (‘‘Saehan’’); Daehan Synthetic Company, Ltd. (‘‘Daehan’’); and Dongwoo Industry Company (‘‘Dongwoo’’). On May 31, 2006, Huvis requested an administrative review. The petitioners withdrew their requests for administrative reviews of Saehan and Daehan on June 19, 2006, and June 21, 2006, respectively. On July 3, 2006, the Department published a notice initiating the review with respect to Huvis and Dongwoo. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 37892, 37900 (July 3, 2006). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is May 1, 2005, through April 30, 2006. On July 13, 2006, we issued antidumping questionnaires in this review. On August 10, 2006, Dongwoo responded that it had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. We received sections A through D questionnaire responses from Huvis on August 17, 2006, September 8, 2006, and September 22, 2006. In November 2006, January 2007, and March 2007, we issued supplemental questionnaires to Huvis. We received responses to these supplemental questionnaires in January 2007, February 2007, and April 2007, respectively. On January 16, 2007, the Department published in the Federal Register an extension of the time limit for the completion of the preliminary results of this review until no later than May 31, 2007, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). See Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from Taiwan and the Republic of Korea: Notice of Extension of Time Limit for the 2005–2006 Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 1703 (January 16, 2007). PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31279 Scope of the Order For the purposes of this order, the product covered is PSF. PSF is defined as synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed or otherwise processed for spinning, of polyesters measuring 3.3 decitex (3 denier, inclusive) or more in diameter. This merchandise is cut to lengths varying from one inch (25 mm) to five inches (127 mm). The merchandise subject to this order may be coated, usually with a silicon or other finish, or not coated. PSF is generally used as stuffing in sleeping bags, mattresses, ski jackets, comforters, cushions, pillows, and furniture. Merchandise of less than 3.3 decitex (less than 3 denier) currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) at subheading 5503.20.00.25 is specifically excluded from this order. Also specifically excluded from this order are polyester staple fibers of 10 to 18 denier that are cut to lengths of 6 to 8 inches (fibers used in the manufacture of carpeting). In addition, low–melt PSF is excluded from this order. Low–melt PSF is defined as a bi–component fiber with an outer sheath that melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner core. The merchandise subject to this order is currently classifiable in the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.45 and 5503.20.00.65. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under the order is dispositive. Intent to Rescind Administrative Review As noted above, Dongwoo stated that it had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. The Department confirmed using CBP data that Dongwoo did not ship subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we are preliminarily rescinding this review with respect to Dongwoo. Fair Value Comparisons To determine whether Huvis’ sales of PSF to the United States were made at less than normal value (‘‘NV’’), we compared export price (‘‘EP’’) to NV, as described in the ‘‘Export Price’’ and ‘‘Normal Value’’ sections of this notice. Pursuant to section 777A(d)(2) of the Act, we compared the EP of individual U.S. transactions to the weighted– average NV of the foreign–like product, where there were sales made in the ordinary course of trade, as discussed in the ‘‘Cost of Production Analysis’’ section, below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 27, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published the initiation of the administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order on certain helical spring lock washers 
(``HSLWs'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 68535 (November 27, 
2006). This review covers the period October 1, 2005, through September 
30, 2006. The preliminary results of review are currently due no later 
than July 3, 2007.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), the Department shall make a preliminary 
determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date 
of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that 
the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it 
determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the 
foregoing time period.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results of the administrative review of HSLWs from the PRC 
within this time limit. Specifically, due to the verification of the 
questionnaire responses scheduled in June, we find that additional time 
is needed to complete these preliminary results.

[[Page 31279]]

Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is extending the time period for completion of the 
preliminary results of this review by 63 days until September 4, 2007. 
The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of 
the preliminary results.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: May 30, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
