The required contents of the notice of intent to participate are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with the Department’s regulations, if we do not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the Department will automatically revoke the orders without further review. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii). For sunset reviews of countervailing duty orders, parties wishing the Department to consider arguments that countervailable subsidy programs have been terminated must include with their substantive responses information and documentation addressing whether the changes to the program were (1) limited to an individual firm or firms and (2) effected by an official act of the government. Further, a party claiming program termination is expected to document that there are no residual benefits under the program and that substitute programs have not been introduced. Cf. 19 CFR 351.526(b) and (d). If a party maintains that any of the subsidies countervailed by the Department were not conferred pursuant to a subsidy program, that PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 party should nevertheless address the applicability of the factors set forth in 19 CFR 351.526(b) and (d).

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is rescinding in part the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina for the period December 1, 2005, to November 30, 2006 with respect to Mielar S.A. (Mielar)/ Compania Apicola Argentina (CAA).1 This partial rescission is based on the withdrawal of the requests for review by the interested parties that requested the review. Additionally, the Department is extending the preliminary results of this administrative review to no later than December 20, 2007. EFFECTIVE DATE: September 4, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Deborah Scott or Robert James, AD/CVD Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of rmajette on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES AGENCY: 1 In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for rebuttals to substantive responses to a notice of initiation was insufficient. This requirement was retained in the final sunset regulations at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(4). As provided in 19 CFR 351.302(b), however, the Department will consider individual requests for extension of that five-day deadline based upon a showing of good cause. 1 Petitioners requested that the Department review Mielar and CAA as separate entities. However, in a previous segment of this proceeding, the Department treated these two companies as a single entity, and no new evidence has been presented in this segment of the proceeding to warrant changing this treatment. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:41 Aug 31, 2007 Jkt 211001 Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–2657 and (202) 482–0649, respectively. BACKGROUND: On December 1, 2006, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on, inter alia, honey from Argentina. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 69543 (December 1, 2006). In response, the American Honey Producers Association and the Sioux Honey Association (collectively, petitioners) timely requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina for the December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006 period of review (POR). The petitioners requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of entries of subject merchandise made by nine Argentine producers/exporters. In addition, the Department received timely requests for review from six Argentine exporters included in the petitioners’ request and one timely request from a producer/exporter that was not included in petitioners’ requests for review. On February 2, 2007, the Department initiated a review on the ten companies2 for which an administrative review was requested. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 5005 (February 2, 2007). On March 27, 2007, the Department indicated that it was selecting for review the four producers/ exporters with the largest export volume during the POR: Asociacion de Cooperativas Argentinas (ACA), Mielar/ CAA, Nexco S.A. (Nexco), and Seylinco, S.A. (Seylinco). See the memorandum, ‘‘Selection of Respondents’’ to Stephen J. Claeys, dated March 27, 2007 (Selection Memorandum). Based on the timely withdrawal of requests for review from the requesting parties, on June 19, 2007, the Department rescinded this review with respect to four companies, one of which was Nexco. See Honey from Argentina: Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 33740 (June 19, 2007). On July 17, 2007, petitioners and respondent company Mielar/CAA withdrew their requests for review. See 2 The Federal Register notice lists 11 companies; however, as explained in the previous footnote, we are treating Mielar and CAA as a single entity based on our treatment of these two entities in a previous segment of this proceeding. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50661 Letters from petitioners and from Mielar/CAA to the Department, dated July 17, 2007, on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU), room B–099 of the main Department building. Rescission, in Part, of Administrative Review The applicable regulation, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), states that if a party that requested an administrative review withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, the Secretary will rescind the review in whole or in part. Furthermore, the regulation states the Secretary may extend this time limit if the Secretary decides that it is reasonable to do so. Although both petitioners and Mielar/ CAA withdrew their requests for review after the 90-day deadline, the Department finds it reasonable to extend the withdrawal deadline because the Department has not yet devoted significant time or resources to this review, e.g., the Department has not yet conducted a sales–below cost investigation. As such, based on prior practice, the Department determines it is reasonable to extend the time limit in this case and rescind the review with respect to Mielar/CAA. See, e.g., Honey from Argentina: Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 61018 (October 17, 2006). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions for Mielar/CAA directly to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) within 15 days of the publication of this notice. The Department will direct CBP to assess antidumping duties for Mielar/CAA at the cash deposit rates in effect on the date of entry for entries during the period December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act), requires the Department to complete the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete this review within the statutory time limit because we require additional time to conduct E:\FR\FM\04SEN1.SGM 04SEN1

Filing Information

    As a courtesy, we are making information related to Sunset 
proceedings, including copies of the pertinent statute and Department's 
regulations, the Department's schedule for Sunset Reviews, a listing of 
past revocations and continuations, and current service lists, 
available to the public on the Department's sunset Internet Web site at 
the following address: ``http://ia.ita.doc.gov/sunset/.'' All 
submissions in these Sunset Reviews must be filed in accordance with 
the Department's regulations regarding format, translation, service, 
and certification of documents. These rules can be found at 19 CFR 
351.303.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.103(c), the Department will maintain and 
make available a service list for these proceedings. To facilitate the 
timely preparation of the service list(s), it is requested that those 
seeking recognition as interested parties to a proceeding contact the 
Department in writing within 10 days of the publication of the Notice 
of Initiation.
    Because deadlines in Sunset Reviews can be very short, we urge 
interested parties to apply for access to proprietary information under 
administrative protective order (``APO'') immediately following 
publication in the Federal Register of the notice of initiation of the 
sunset review. The Department's regulations on submission of 
proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business 
proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304-306.

Information Required from Interested Parties

    Domestic interested parties (defined in section 771(9)(C), (D), 
(E), (F), and (G) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b)) wishing to 
participate in these Sunset Reviews must respond not later than 15 days 
after the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of 
initiation by filing a notice of intent to participate. The required 
contents of the notice of intent to participate are set forth at 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with the Department's regulations, if 
we do not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one 
domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the Department will 
automatically revoke the orders without further review. See 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii).
    For sunset reviews of countervailing duty orders, parties wishing 
the Department to consider arguments that countervailable subsidy 
programs have been terminated must include with their substantive 
responses information and documentation addressing whether the changes 
to the program were (1) limited to an individual firm or firms and (2) 
effected by an official act of the government. Further, a party 
claiming program termination is expected to document that there are no 
residual benefits under the program and that substitute programs have 
not been introduced. Cf. 19 CFR 351.526(b) and (d). If a party 
maintains that any of the subsidies countervailed by the Department 
were not conferred pursuant to a subsidy program, that party should 
nevertheless address the applicability of the factors set forth in 19 
CFR 351.526(b) and (d). Similarly, parties wishing the Department to 
consider whether a company's change in ownership has extinguished the 
benefit from prior non-recurring, allocable, subsidies must include 
with their substantive responses information and documentation 
supporting their claim that all or almost all of the company's shares 
or assets were sold in an arm's length transaction, at a price 
representing fair market value, as described in the Notice of Final 
Modification of Agency Practice Under Section 123 of the Uruguay Round 
Agreements Act, 68 FR 37125 (June 23, 2003) (``Modification Notice''). 
See Modification Notice for a discussion of the types of information 
and documentation the Department requires.
    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate 
from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in the Sunset Review must file 
complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation. The 
required contents of a substantive response, on an order-specific 
basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain 
information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties. 
Also, note that the Department's information requirements are distinct 
from the Commission's information requirements. Please consult the

conduct of Sunset Reviews.\1\ Please consult the Department's 
regulations at 19 CFR Part 351 for definitions of terms and for other 
general information concerning antidumping and countervailing duty 
proceedings at the Department.
    This notice of initiation is being published in accordance with 
section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a 
number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for 
rebuttals to substantive responses to a notice of initiation was 
insufficient. This requirement was retained in the final sunset 
regulations at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(4). As provided in 19 CFR 
351.302(b), however, the Department will consider individual 
requests for extension of that five-day deadline based upon a 
showing of good cause.

    Dated: August 23, 2007.
Gary Taverman,
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
