Applications for Duty-Free Entry of Scientific Instruments, 41495-41496 [E7-14669]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 145 / Monday, July 30, 2007 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES reevaluations of the relationship, as well as non–competitive pricing. See Joint Request, at 9–10 and Exhibits 17–18. Further, Tradewinds Furniture stated that it has ‘‘substantially the same’’ customer base as Nanhai Jiantai, provided a customer comparison chart, and explained that the loss of customers and addition of new customers is typical for any company. See Joint Request, at 10 and Exhibit 19. Finally, Tradewinds Furniture provided shipping records for Foshan Jiantai and Tradewinds Furniture and stated that there is ‘‘significant parity of shipment quantities and values’’ (both in pieces and in sales). See Joint Request, at 11– 12 and Exhibits 20–21. Upon review of the submitted information and material, we preliminarily find that Tradewinds Furniture has provided sufficient evidence in support of its claim that it is the successor–in-interest to Nanhai Jiantai. The name change from Nanhai Jiantai to Foshan Jiantai, Company A’s acquisition of the majority of Foshan Jiantai’s assets, the creation of Tradewinds Furniture by Company A, and Tradewinds Furniture’s current operational control of the furniture production resulted in minimal changes. In their totality, we preliminarily find that Tradewinds Furniture’s management, production facilities, supplier relationships and customer base remain essentially the same as that of Nanhai Jiantai. Based upon the above, we preliminarily determine that Tradewinds Furniture is the successor–in-interest to Nanhai Jiantai and, therefore, should be given the same antidumping duty treatment as Nanhai Jiantai. The cash deposit determination from this changed circumstances review will apply to all entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this changed circumstances review. See Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review; Certain Forged Stainless Steel Flanges From India, 71 FR 31156 (June 1, 2006). This cash deposit rate shall remain in effect until further notice. Tradewinds International Enterprise Ltd. In the Joint Request, Tradewinds Intl. claims that it is the successor–ininterest to Fortune Glory. Tradewinds Intl. states that ‘‘Fortune Glory continues to operate as the exporter for Tradewinds Furniture’’ and outlined its current functions and operations. See Joint Request, at 2; Questionnaire Response, at 3 and Exhibit 25. Tradewinds Intl. provided a flowchart that indicated board of director changes from Fortune Glory to Tradewinds Intl. See Questionnaire Response, at Exhibit 23; Supplemental Response, at Exhibit 28. Tradewinds Intl. elaborated on and provided various documentation on certain name changes, which resulted in the name Tradewinds Intl. See Joint Request, at 5 and Exhibit 9; Questionnaire Response, at 4 and Exhibit 26. Tradewinds Intl. also provided the business registration certificates for Fortune Glory and Tradewinds Intl. See Questionnaire Response, at 3–4 and Exhibits 24 and 27. Tradewinds Intl. claims that Fortune Glory will transfer its export functions to Tradewinds Intl. when it is named as the successor–in-interest to Fortune Glory, and that ‘‘{n}o structural, management, employee, supplier, customer, or other changes are anticipated as a result of the transfer.’’ See Questionnaire Response, at 4. Upon review of the submitted information and material, we preliminarily find that Tradewinds Intl. has failed to provide sufficient evidence in support of its claim that it is the successor–in-interest to Fortune Glory. Tradewinds Intl. admits that Fortune Glory remains the exporter for Tradewinds Furniture and has not transferred its export functions to Tradewinds Intl. The Department generally will consider the new company to be the successor to the predecessor if the resulting operations are essentially the same as those of the predecessor company. See Stainless Steel Flanges From India, 71 FR 31156. As Tradewinds Intl. has not yet taken over the export functions of Fortune Glory, its current operations are not essentially the same as those of Fortune Glory. While Tradewinds Intl. claims that no changes are anticipated to the structure, management, employees, suppliers, customers, or otherwise, such a claim is speculative at this time, and therefore premature. Based upon the above, we preliminarily determine that Tradewinds Intl. is not the successor– in-interest to Fortune Glory at this time and, therefore, should not be given the same antidumping duty treatment as Fortune Glory.

ACTION: Notice and request for applications. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (HIHWNMS or Sanctuary) is seeking applicants for both primary and alternate members of the following seats on its Sanctuary Advisory Council (Council): Education, Fishing, Hawaii County, Honolulu County, Kauai County, Maui County, Native Hawaiian, and Research. Applicants are chosen based upon their particular expertise and experience in relation to the seat for which they are applying; community and professional affiliations; philosphy regarding the protection and management of marine resources; and possibly the length of residence in the are affected by the Sanctuary. Applicants who are chosen as members PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 should expect to serve 2-year terms, pursuant to the Council’s Charter. DATES: Applications are due by August 31, 2006. ADDRESSES: Application kits may be obtained from Mary Grady, 6600 Kalanianaole Hwy, Suite 301, Honolulu, HI 96825 or Mary.Grady@noaa.gov. Completed applications should be sent to the same address. Applications are also available online at: http:// hawaiihumpbackwhale.noaa.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Naomi McIntosh, 6600 Kalanianaole Hwy, Suite 301, Honolulu, HI 96825 or Naomi.McIntosh@noaa.gov or 808.397.2651. The HIHWNMS Advisory Council was established in March 1996 to assure continued public participation in the management of the Sanctuary. Since its establishment, the Council has played a vital role in the decisions affecting the Sanctuary surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands. The Council’s twenty-four voting members represent a variety of local user groups, as well as the general public, plus ten local, state and federal governmental jurisdictions. The Council is supported by three committees: a Research Committee chaired by the Research representative, and Education Committee chaired by the Education representative, and a Conservation Committee chaired by the Conservation representative, each respectively dealing with matters concerning research, education and resource protection. The Council represents the coordination link between the Sanctuary and the state and federal management agencies, user groups, researchers, educators, policy makers, and other various groups that help to focus efforts and attention on the humpback whale and its habitat around the main Hawaiian Islands. The Council functions in an advisory capacity to the Sanctuary Manager and is instrumental in helping to develop policies and program goals, and to identify education, outreach, research, long-term monitoring, resource protection and revenue enhancement priorities. The Council works in concert with the Sanctuary Manager by keeping him or her informed about issues ofconcern throughout the Sanctuary, offering recommendations on specific issues, and aiding the Manager in achieving the goals of the Sanctuary program within the context of Hawaii’s marine programs and policies.
