Sodium Metal From France, 61374-61375 [E7-21300]

Download as PDF 61374 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 209 / Tuesday, October 30, 2007 / Notices the natural and direct result of the imposition of the antidumping duty order—Tropicana and others allege that, in contrast to what would be expected under the order, domestic production has continued to decline and imports have increased. Contrary to these allegations, however, the evidence indicates that changes that have occurred in the U.S. market are expected results of the order. That is, while domestic production continued to decline, U.S. prices have increased.17 Higher prices, including higher import prices, are expected and positive effects of the order for domestic producers. Given these results, the increase in imports since the order does not constitute a changed circumstance not resulting from the order sufficient to warrant a review. The purpose of an antidumping duty order is not to curtail or disrupt import supply into the U.S. market, but to ensure that import prices reflect fair market value. The Commission recognized in its original determination that imports help meet U.S. demand for orange juice when U.S. supply is temporarily affected by short orange crop years due to weather, disease and other factors.18 As the Commission stated in its original determination in this case, and in denying a similar request for a changed circumstances review in Polychloroprene Rubber from Japan, [W]hile short supply conditions are a relevant condition of competition, * * * there is no short supply provision in the statute and the fact that the domestic industry may not be able to supply all of demand does not mean the industry may not be materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of subject imports.19 sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Finally, with respect to the third factor, neither Tropicana nor the other parties supporting review have put forth sufficient evidence to show that the alleged changed circumstances indicate that revocation of the order would not be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry. In fact, the evidence they have cited would indicate the opposite. The fact that U.S. production has continued to decline, would indicate if anything, that the industry has not fully recovered from the adverse effects of subject imports, as well as adverse weather and disease conditions, and is vulnerable to continued injury if the order were revoked. In addition, 17 Domestic Producers’ Comments at 16–17. Orange Juice from Brazil, USITC Pub. 3838 (March 2006) at 20–21. 19 Polychloroprene Rubber from Japan, 71 FR at 17140; see also Certain Orange Juice from Brazil, USITC Pub. 3838 (March 2006) at 20, n. 143. 18 Certain VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:46 Oct 29, 2007 Jkt 214001 imports have increased since the order was imposed, and there is no indication or allegation that Brazil has less capacity or incentive to increase its shipments to the United States absent the order. Record evidence in fact suggests that from 2005/2006 to 2006/ 2007, Brazilian orange juice production, exports, and end-of-period inventories grew.20 Moreover, data also show that after the order was imposed the average customs value per SSE liter of imports from Brazil rose.21 Likewise, there is no indication or claim that Brazilian prices would not return to pre-order levels if the order were revoked. In sum, Tropicana has not provided adequate evidentiary support for its allegations that sufficient changed circumstances and ‘‘good cause’’ exist for the Commission to institute a review. The circumstances allegedly fail to satisfy these requirements because they (1) do not constitute changes since the original determination or are not significant changes; (2) do not constitute circumstances that are not a direct and natural result of the order; and (3) do not indicate, so as to justify proceeding to a full review, that revocation of the antidumping duty order would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry. In light of the above analysis, the Commission under section 751(b) of the Act determines that institution of an investigation to review in less than 24 months the Commission’s final affirmative determination in investigation No. 731–TA–1089 (Final), Certain Orange Juice from Brazil, is not warranted. Issued: October 24, 2007. By order of the Commission. Marilyn R. Abbott, Secretary to the Commission. [FR Doc.
