SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: INITIATION OF INVESTIGATION The Petition On October 22, 2007, the Department of Commerce (Department) received an antidumping duty petition concerning sodium metal from France, filed by E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. Inc. (the petitioner) on behalf of the domestic industry producing sodium metal. See Antidumping Duty Petition on Sodium Metal from France (Petition). On October 29, 2007, the Department clarified that the official filing date for the Petition was October 23, 2007. See Memorandum from Lisa Nguyen, Import Policy Analyst, to Deputy Assistant Secretary Stephen Claeys: Decision Memorandum Concerning Petition Filing Date, dated October 29, 2007. The petitioner is the only domestic producer of sodium metal. On October 25, 2007, the Department issued a request for additional information and clarification of certain areas of the Petition. On October 30, 2007, in response to the Department’s request, the petitioner filed a supplement to the Petition. On November 1, 2007, the Department requested further clarification with regard to the Petition and the October 30, 2007, supplement to the Petition. The petitioner filed a second supplement to the Petition on November 2, 2007. On November 6, 2007, the Department requested further clarification and additional information in regard to the petitioner’s November 2, 2007, supplement to the Petition.

Finally, the petitioner supplemented the Petition on November 9, 2007. In accordance with section 732(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the petitioner alleges that imports of sodium metal from France are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value within the meaning of section 731 of the Act and that such imports are materially injuring, or threatening material injury to, an industry in the United States. The Department finds that the petitioner filed this Petition on behalf of the domestic industry because it is an interested party as defined in section 771(9)(C) of the Act and has demonstrated that the petitioner is the only known member of the industry with respect to the initiation of the antidumping duty investigation that the petitioner is requesting. See the ‘‘Determination of Industry Support for the Petition’’ section below. Period of Investigation Because the Petition was filed on October 23, 2007, the anticipated period of investigation (POI) is October 1, 2006, through September 30, 2007. See 19 CFR 351.204(b). Scope of the Investigation The merchandise covered by this investigation includes sodium metal (Na), in any form and at any purity level. Examples of names commonly used to reference sodium metal are sodium metal, sodium, metallic sodium, and natrium. The merchandise subject to this investigation is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) as subheading 2805.11.0000. The American Chemical Society Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) has assigned the name ‘‘Sodium’’ to sodium metal. The CAS registry number is 7440–23–5. For purposes of the investigation, the narrative description is dispositive, not the tariff heading, CAS registry number or CAS name, which are provided for convenience and customs purposes. Comments on Scope of Investigation We are setting aside a period for interested parties to raise issues regarding product coverage, as discussed in the preamble to the regulations. See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997). The Department encourages all interested parties to submit such comments within 20 calendar days of signature of this notice. Comments should be addressed to Import Administration’s Central Records Unit (CRU), Room 1870, U.S. E:\FR\FM\20NON1.SGM 20NON1

Background

    On July 3, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review 
of the antidumping duty order on saccharin from the People's Republic 
of China (``PRC''). See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order,

that the Department conduct an administrative review of Shanghai 
Fortune's exports to the United States for the period of review 
(``POR'') July 1, 2006, through June 30, 2007. Pursuant to this 
request, the Department published a notice of the initiation of the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on saccharin from 
the PRC for the POR. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 
48613 (August 24, 2007). On October 22, 2007, Shanghai Fortune withdrew 
its request for the administrative review of the antidumping order on 
saccharin from the PRC for the POR.

withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the

administrative review of the antidumping duty order on saccharin from 
the PRC covering the period July 1, 2006, through June 30, 2007, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.

of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or 
withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department will issue appropriate assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register.

Notification to Interested Parties

    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. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.402(f)(3), failure to comply with this requirement could result in 
the Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties 
occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and as explained in the APO 
itself. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO 
materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an
