Brake Rotors From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of the 2006 Semiannual New Shipper Review, 67270-67271 [E7-23143]

Download as PDF ebenthall on PRODPC61 with NOTICES 67270 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 228 / Wednesday, November 28, 2007 / Notices be when the Draft EIS is published. The comment period on the draft environmental impact statement will be 45 days from the date the Environmental Protection Agency publishes the notice of availability in the Federal Register. The Draft EIS is anticipated to be available for public review in June 2008. The comment period on the Draft EIS will be 45 days from the date the Environmental Protection Agency publishes the notice of availability in the Federal Register. The Forest Service believes, at this early stage, it is important to give reviewers notice of several court rulings related to public participation in the environmental review process. First, reviewers of draft environmental impact statements must structure their participation in the environmental review of the proposal so that is it meaningful and alerts an agency to the reviewer’s position and contentions (Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Corp. v. NRDC, 435 U.S. 519, 553 (1978)). Also, environmental objections that could be raised at the draft environmental impact statement stage but that are not raised until after completion of the final environmental impact statement may be waived or dismissed by the courts (City of Angoon v. Ho del, 803 F.2d 1016, 1022 (9th Cir. 1986) and Wisconsin Heritages, Inc. v. Harris, 490 F. Supp. 1334, 1338 (E.D. Wis. 1980)). Because of these court rulings, it is very important that those interested in this proposed action participate by the close of the comment period for the Draft EIS so that substantive comments and objections are made available to the Forest Service at a time when it can meaningfully consider them and respond to them in a final environmental impact statement. To assist the Forest Service in identifying and considering issues and concerns on the proposed action, comments on the draft environmental impact statement should be as specific as possible. It is also helpful if comments refer to specific pages or chapters of the draft statement. Comments may also address the adequacy of the draft environmental impact statement or the merits of the alternatives formulated and discussed in the statement. Reviewers may wish to refer to the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act at 40 CFR 1503.3 in addressing these points. After the comment period for the Draft EIS ends, the Forest Service will analyze comments received and address them in the Final EIS. The Final EIS is scheduled to be released by January VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:18 Nov 27, 2007 Jkt 214001 2009. The Responsible Official (Forest Supervisor Thomas K. Reilly) will document the decision and rationale in a Record of Decision (ROD). The decision will be subject to review under Forest Service appeal regulations at 36 CFR Part 215. Preliminary Issues identified by the Forest Service interdisciplinary team include: Changing motorized and nonmotorized recreation opportunities, costs of road and trail management and maintenance, soil issues, effects on aquatic environments and species, effects on wildlife, the spread of noxious weeds, changes in motorized access to roads, trails and areas that are not designated as part of the travel planning analysis, and motorized access for people with disabilities.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are brake rotors made of gray

which produces vehicles sold in the United States. (e.g., General 
Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, Volvo). Brake rotors covered in 
this order are not certified by OEM producers of vehicles sold in the 
United States. The scope also includes composite brake rotors that are 
made of gray cast iron, which contain a steel plate, but otherwise meet 
the above criteria. Excluded from the scope of this order are brake 
rotors made of gray cast iron, whether finished, semifinished, or 
unfinished, with a diameter less than 8 inches or greater than 16 
inches (less than 20.32 centimeters or greater than 40.64 centimeters) 
and a weight less than 8 pounds or greater than 45 pounds (less than 
3.63 kilograms or greater than 20.41 kilograms).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ On January 17, 2007, the Department determined the brake 
rotors produced by Federal-Mogul and certified by the Ford Motor

Administration, entitled, ``Scope Ruling of the Antidumping Duty 
Order on Brake Rotors from the People's Republic of China; Federal-
Mogul Corporation,'' dated January 17, 2007.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

[[Page 67271]]

    Brake rotors were classifiable under subheading 8708.39.50.30 of 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') during 
the period of review.\2\ Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope 
of this order is dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ As of January 1, 2005, the HTSUS classification for brake 
rotors (discs) changed from 8708.39.50.10 to 8708.39.50.30. As of 
January 1, 2007, the HTSUS classification for brake rotors (discs)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Liquidation

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these 
final results of review. We will direct CBP to assess the appropriate 
assessment rate (0 percent) against the entered customs values for the 
subject merchandise on each of Qizheng's entries under the relevant 
order during the POR.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this new shipper review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after date of publication, as provided 
by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''): (1) for subject merchandise exported and produced by Qizheng, 
the cash deposit rate will be zero percent; (2) for subject merchandise 
exported but not produced by Qizheng, the cash deposit rate will be the 
PRC-wide rate; (3) the cash deposit rate for PRC exporters who received 
a separate rate in a prior segment of the proceeding will continue to 
be the rate assigned in that segment of the proceeding; (4) for all 
other PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to 
be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-
wide rate of 43.32 percent; and (5) for all non-PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable 
to the PRC supplier of that exporter. These deposit requirements shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also 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 entry during this review period. Failure to comply with 
this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is 
subject to sanction.
    This new shipper review and this notice are published in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
