Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 43234 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 149 / Friday, August 3, 2007 / Notices on behalf of Merck Sharpe & Dohme Quimica de Puerto Rico Inc. (MSDQ) to conduct pharmaceutical manufacturing operations under FTZ procedures within FTZ 7 at the MOVA Pharmaceutical Corporation (MOVA) pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Caguas, Puerto Rico. The application was filed on July 27, 2007. The MOVA facilities (650 employees, 16 acres, buildings totaling 250,000 sq. ft, 40 percent of which is devoted to manufacturing) are located on State Road 1, Km 34.8, within the Villa Blanca Industrial Park in Caguas, Puerto Rico (Site 1, Parcel 2). MSDQ will act as the operator within FTZ 7, with the manufacturing activity being contacted by MOVA on behalf of MSDQ. The company has indicated that the square footage of the buildings devoted to manufacturing operations could grow to include up to 70 percent in the near future. MSDQ has requested authority to manufacture two pharmaceutical products, MK–431A (HTSUS 3004.90) and sitagliptin (HTSUS 2933.59) for the U.S. market and export. Duty rates on the finished products range from duty– free to 6.5 percent. Foreign components that would be used in the manufacturing process (up to 25 percent of total content) include sitagliptin (HTSUS 2933.59), metformin hydrochloride (HTSUS 2925.20), enamine amide (HTSUS 2933.59) and butyl josphos (HTSUS 2931.00), with duty rates of 3.7 to 6.5 percent, ad valorem. The application also requests authority to include a broad range of inputs and finished pharmaceutical products that MSDQ may produce under FTZ procedures in the future. (New major activity involving these inputs/products would require review by the FTZ Board.) The duty rates for these inputs and final products range from duty–free to 10 percent. Zone procedures would exempt MSDQ from customs duty payments on the foreign components used in export production to non–NAFTA countries. Exports account for approximately 30 to 40 percent of production. On domestic sales and sales to NAFTA countries, MSDQ could defer duty until the products are entered for consumption or exported, and choose the lower duty that applies to the finished product for the foreign components used in production. The company would also realize certain logistical savings related to zone–to-zone transfers and direct delivery procedures as well as savings on materials that become scrap/waste during manufacturing. The application indicates that FTZ–related savings VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:17 Aug 02, 2007 Jkt 211001 would help improve MSDQ and MOVA’s international competitiveness. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is October 2, 2007. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period (to October 17, 2007).

We received timely requests for review from China First Pencil Co., Ltd. (‘‘China First’’), Shandong Rongxin Import & Export Co., Ltd. (‘‘Rongxin’’) and Three Star Stationery Industry Corp. (‘‘Three Star’’). On February 2, 2007, the Department published a notice of initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of cased pencils from the PRC for the period December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 5005 (February 2, 2007). On April 9, 2007, China First and Three Star requested a 60–day extension of the deadline by which parties who have requested a review may withdraw the request for review. On April 12, 2007, the Department granted that request. On May 21, 2006, China First and Three Star withdrew their requests for an administrative review. On June 6, 2007, Rongxin withdrew its request for review. Rescission of Review The Department’s regulations, at 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), provide that the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, or withdraws its request at a later date if the Department determines that it is reasonable to extend the time limit for withdrawing the request. China First, Three Star and Rongxin were the only parties to request reviews of their respective companies. China First, Three Star and Rongxin made timely requests to withdraw their requests for review. Therefore, since no other party requested a review of these companies, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on cased pencils from the PRC covering the period December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.

See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. The Third administrative review covers four companies, and to conduct the sales and factor analyses for each requires the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to each company’s sales practices and manufacturing methods. In addition, two companies involve complicated affiliation and collapsing issues. The Department requires additional time to analyze these issues. Therefore, given the number and complexity of issues in this case, and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 30 days until August 31, 2007. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of opportunity to request an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cased 
pencils (``cased pencils'') from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC''). See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or 
Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 
71 FR 69543 (December 1, 2006). We received timely requests for review 
from China First Pencil Co., Ltd. (``China First''), Shandong Rongxin 
Import & Export Co., Ltd. (``Rongxin'') and Three Star Stationery 
Industry Corp. (``Three Star'').
    On February 2, 2007, the Department published a notice of 
initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of cased 
pencils from the PRC for the period December 1, 2005, through November 
30, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 5005 
(February 2, 2007). On April 9, 2007, China First and Three Star 
requested a 60-day extension of the deadline by which parties who have 
requested a review may withdraw the request for review. On April 12, 
2007, the Department granted that request. On May 21, 2006, China First 
and Three Star withdrew their requests for an administrative review. On 
June 6, 2007, Rongxin withdrew its request for review.

Rescission of Review

    The Department's regulations, at 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), provide that 
the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that 
requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of 
the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested 
review, or withdraws its request at a later date if the Department 
determines that it is reasonable to extend the time limit for 
withdrawing the request. China First, Three Star and Rongxin were the 
only parties to request reviews of their respective companies. China 
First, Three Star and Rongxin made timely requests to withdraw their 
requests for review. Therefore, since no other party requested a review 
of these companies, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping 
duty order on cased pencils from the PRC covering the period December 
1, 2005, through November 30, 2006.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For 
all firms, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the 
cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of 
entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance 
with 19 CFR

[[Page 43235]]

351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department will issue appropriate assessment 
instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of this 
notice.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR
