    We initiated an antidumping investigation on glycine from India. 
See Glycine from India, Japan, and the Republic of Korea: Initiation of 
Antidumping Duty Investigations, 72 FR 20816 (April 26, 2007). On 
October 26, 2007, we issued our preliminary determination of sales at 
less than fair value (not yet published). We stated in our October 26, 
2007, preliminary determination that we used total facts available, 
including an adverse inference, for one firm, Nutracare International/
Salvi Chemical Industries (Salvi), which did not respond to our 
quantity and value (Q&V) questionnaire and, therefore, withheld 
requested information and significantly impeded this proceeding 
pursuant to section 776(a) of the Act. We stated further that, because 
it did not cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability, in 
reaching our preliminary determination we applied total adverse facts 
available to Salvi pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act.
    There were nine firms in addition to Salvi which did not respond to 
our Q&V questionnaire and, to clarify our inadvertent error of omission 
of these firms, we are amending our preliminary determination. The 
firms which failed to respond to our request for information and for 
which we are applying adverse facts available in accordance with 
sections 776(a) and 776(b) of the Act are as follows: Abhiyan Media 
Pvt. Ltd., Ashok Alco-Chem, Ltd., Bimal Pharma, Pvt., Ltd., Euro Asian 
Industrial Co., EPIC Enzymes Pharmaceuticals & Industrial, Indian 
Chemical Industries, Kumar Industries, Sisco Research Laboratories Pvt.

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, we will instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of all 
entries of glycine from India that are entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register. We will instruct CBP to require a cash 
deposit or the posting of a bond equal to the weighted-average margin, 
as indicated in the chart above, as follows: (1) The rates for the 
mandatory respondents except Paras will be the rates we have determined 
in this preliminary determination; (2) if the exporter is not a firm 
identified in this investigation but the producer is, the rate will be 
the rate established for the producer of the subject merchandise; (3) 
the rate for all other producers or exporters will be 45.82 percent. 
These suspension-of-liquidation instructions will remain in effect

liquidation of merchandise produced and exported by Paras.
