Chlorinated Isocyanurates From Spain: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 64194-64196 [07-5700]

Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 64194 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 220 / Thursday, November 15, 2007 / Notices Treaty Doc. 103–21 defined the term ‘‘protective purposes’’ to mean ‘‘used for determining the adequacy of defense equipment and measures.’’ Consistent with this definition, U.S. implementation, as authorized via Presidential Decision Directive (PDD) 70, December 17, 1999, assigned the responsibility to operate these two facilities to the Department of Defense (DOD), thereby precluding commercial production of Schedule 1 chemicals for protective purposes in the United States. This action did not establish any limitations on ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemical activities that are not prohibited by the CWC. However, the Department of Defense maintains strict controls on ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals produced at its facilities in order to ensure the accountability and proper use of such chemicals, consistent with the object and purpose of the Convention. The provisions of the CWC that affect commercial activities involving ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals are implemented in the CWCR (see 15 CFR part 712) and in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) (see 15 CFR 742.18 and 15 CFR part 745), both of which are administered by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). Pursuant to CWC requirements, the CWCR restrict commercial production of Schedule 1 chemicals to research, medical, or pharmaceutical purposes. The CWCR also contain other requirements and prohibitions that apply to ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals and/or ‘‘Schedule 1’’ facilities. Specifically, the CWCR: (1) Prohibit the import of ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals from States not Party to the Convention (15 CFR 712.2(b)); (2) Require annual declarations by certain facilities engaged in the production of ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals in excess of 100 grams aggregate per calendar year (i.e., declared ‘‘Schedule 1’’ facilities) for purposes not prohibited by the Convention (15 CFR 712.5(a)(1) and (a)(2)); (3) Require government approval of ‘‘declared Schedule 1’’ facilities (15 CFR 712.5(f)); (4) Provide that ‘‘declared Schedule 1’’ facilities are subject to initial and routine inspection by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (15 CFR 712.5(e) and 716.1(b)(1)); (5) Require 200 days advance notification of establishment of new ‘‘Schedule 1’’ production facilities producing greater than 100 grams aggregate of ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals per calendar year (15 CFR 712.4); (6) Require advance notification and annual reporting of all imports and VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:50 Nov 14, 2007 Jkt 214001 exports of ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals to, or from, other States Parties to the Convention (15 CFR 712.6, 742.18(a)(1) and 745.1); and (7) Prohibit the export of ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals to States not Party to the Convention (15 CFR 742.18(a)(1) and (b)(1)(ii)). Request for Comments In order to assist in determining whether the legitimate commercial activities and interests of chemical, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical firms in the United States are significantly harmed by the limitations of the Convention on access to, and production of, ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals as described in this notice, BIS is seeking public comments on any effects that implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention, through the Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Act and the Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations, has had on commercial activities involving ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals during calendar year 2007. In response to last year’s notice of inquiry, BIS received comments from two companies. To allow BIS to properly evaluate the significance of any harm to commercial activities involving ‘‘Schedule 1’’ chemicals, public comments submitted in response to this notice of inquiry should include both a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the impact of the CWC on such activities. Submission of Comments All comments must be submitted to the address indicated in this notice. The Department requires that all comments be submitted in written form. The Department encourages interested persons who wish to comment to do so at the earliest possible time. The period for submission of comments will close on December 17, 2007. The Department will consider all comments received before the close of the comment period. Comments received after the end of the comment period will be considered if possible, but their consideration cannot be assured. The Department will not accept comments accompanied by a request that a part or all of the material be treated confidentially because of its business proprietary nature or for any other reason. The Department will return such comments and materials to the persons submitting the comments and will not consider them. All comments submitted in response to this notice will be a matter of public record and will be available for public inspection and copying.

Aragonesas and the petitioners submitted rebuttal briefs on August 22, 2007. On September 25, 2007, the Department held both a public session and a closed session hearing concerning these issues raised by the parties in their briefs. Scope of Antidumping Duty Order The products covered by this order are chlorinated isos. Chlorinated isos are derivatives of cyanuric acid, described as chlorinated s-triazine triones. There are three primary chemical compositions of chlorinated isos: (1) trichloroisocyanuric acid (C13(NCO)3); (2) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (dihydrate) (NaC12(NCO)3 2H20); and (3) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (anhydrous) (NaC12(NCO)3). Chlorinated isos are available in powder, granular, and tableted forms. This order covers all chlorinated isos. Chlorinated isos are currently classifiable under subheadings 2933.69.6015, 2933.69.6021, and 2933.69.6050 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). The tariff classification 2933.69.6015 covers sodium dichloroisocyanurates (anhydrous and dihydrate forms) and trichloroisocyanuric acid. The tariff classifications 2933.69.6021 and 2933.69.6050 represent basket categories that include chlorinated isos and other compounds including an infused triazine ring.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made changes in the margin calculation for Aragonesas. For a list of these changes, see Issues and Decision Memorandum, at the section titled ‘‘Changes in the Margin Calculation Since the Preliminary Results.’’ Final Results of Review 64195 instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (‘‘Assessment Policy Notice’’). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the company included in these final results of review for which the reviewed company did not know that the merchandise it sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the ‘‘All Others’’ rate if there is no rate for the intermediary involved in the transaction.

Scope of Antidumping Duty Order

    The products covered by this order are chlorinated isos. 
Chlorinated isos are derivatives of cyanuric acid, described as 
chlorinated s-triazine triones. There are three primary chemical 
compositions of chlorinated isos: (1) trichloroisocyanuric acid 
(C13(NCO)3); (2) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (dihydrate) (NaC12(NCO)3 
2H20); and (3) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (anhydrous) (NaC12(NCO)3). 
Chlorinated isos are available in powder, granular, and tableted forms. 
This order covers all chlorinated isos.
    Chlorinated isos are currently classifiable under subheadings 
2933.69.6015, 2933.69.6021, and 2933.69.6050 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). The tariff classification 
2933.69.6015 covers sodium dichloroisocyanurates (anhydrous and

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made changes in 
the margin calculation for Aragonesas. For a list of these changes, see 
Issues and Decision Memorandum, at the section titled ``Changes in the 
Margin Calculation Since the Preliminary Results.''

Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following percentage margin exists for the

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b). In 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated importer-specific 
ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount 
of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to each 
importer, to the total entered value of the examined sales for that 
importer. Where the importer-specific assessment rate is above de 
minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent or greater), we will instruct CBP to assess 
the importer-specific rate uniformly, as appropriate, on all entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR that were entered by the importer. 
The Department will issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of these final results of review directing CBP to assess 
the final assessment rates (if above de minimis) uniformly on all 
entries of subject merchandise made by the relevant importer during the 
POR. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), the Department will instruct CBP 
to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which 
the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent).
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) 
(``Assessment Policy Notice''). This clarification will apply to 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the company 
included in these final results of review for which the reviewed 
company did not know that the merchandise it sold to the intermediary 
(e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the 
United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
unreviewed entries at the ``All Others'' rate if there is no rate for 
the intermediary involved in the transaction. See Assessment Policy 
Notice for a full discussion of this clarification.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of chlorinated isos from Spain entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption, effective on or after the publication date 
of the final results of this administrative review, as provided for by 
section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the 
reviewed company, Aragonesas, will be the rate shown above; (2) for 
previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate 
published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm 
covered in this review, or the original investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will be 
24.83 percent, the ``All Others'' rate made effective by the original 
investigation. See Chlorinated Isos Order. These deposit requirements 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility, under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2), to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent

[[Page 64196]]

assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under
