(HESI) located in Westlake, Louisiana. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign–Trade Zones Act, as amended (19U.S.C. 81a– 81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on April 1, 2008. The HESI facility (17 acres, 48 employees) is located at 3500 Bayou D’Inde Road, in Westlake. The facility is used for the manufacturing, VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:31 Apr 14, 2008 Jkt 214001 warehousing and distribution activities related to the processing of raw barite (HTSUS 2511.10.50) into ground barite (HTSUS 2511.10.10) (up to 540,000 tons annually). Ground barite is used in the production of drilling fluids (drilling mud) and various specialty chemicals for use by the oil and natural gas exploration industry. HESI sources the majority of its raw barite from abroad. The duty rate on the imported raw barite is $1.25 per metric ton. This application requests authority for HESI to conduct the activity under FTZ procedures, which would exempt the company from customs duty payments on the imported barite used in export production. Less than one percent of production is exported. On domestic sales, the company could choose the duty rate (duty–free) for the imported raw barite used in manufacturing that applies to the finished product. The majority of FTZ–related savings will come from the elimination of the duty on the finished product. HESI will also realize additional savings on the elimination of duties on materials that become scrap/waste during manufacturing. The application indicates that the FTZ–related savings would improve the plant’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Christopher Kemp of the FTZ staff is designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be adressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address listed below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:31 Apr 14, 2008 Jkt 214001 Background The Department published the Preliminary Results on October 9, 2007. On December 17, 2007, the petitioners1, Xuzhou Jinjiang Foodstuffs Co., Ltd. (Xuzhou), Washington International Insurance Co. (WII), the surety company for the U.S. importer of Xuzhou’s subject merchandise, and Jingdezhen Garay Foods Co., Ltd (Jingdezhen) submitted case briefs. On December 26, 2007, Xiping Opeck Food Co., Ltd. (Xiping Opeck), and the petitioners submitted rebuttal briefs. On February 22, 2008, WII and Xuzhou submitted comments in response to a memorandum the Department placed on the record regarding Xuzhou’s shipments to the United States. See Memorandum from Jeff Pedersen to the File regarding ‘‘Information Obtained from the Food and Drug Administration Regarding Shipments by Xuzhou Jinjiang Foodstuffs Co., Ltd.,’’ dated February 7, 2008. On February 1, 2008, the Department extended the time period for completion of the final results until April 7, 2008. See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of the 2005–2006 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and 2005–2006 New Shipper Reviews, 73 FR 6127 (February 1, 2008). Scope of the Order The product covered by this antidumping duty order is freshwater crawfish tail meat, in all its forms (whether washed or with fat on, whether purged or unpurged), grades, and sizes; whether frozen, fresh, or chilled; and regardless of how it is packed, preserved, or prepared. Excluded from the scope of the order are live crawfish and other whole crawfish, whether boiled, frozen, fresh, or chilled. Also excluded are saltwater crawfish of any type, and parts thereof. Freshwater crawfish tail meat is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item numbers 1605.40.10.10 and 1605.40.10.90, which are the new HTSUS numbers for prepared foodstuffs, indicating peeled crawfish tail meat and other, as introduced by CBP in 2000, and HTSUS numbers 0306.19.00.10 and 0306.29.00.00, which are reserved for fish and crustaceans in general. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only. The written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. 1 The petitioners are the Crawfish Processors Alliance, the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, and Bob Odom, Commissioner. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20249 Final Rescission of New Shipper Reviews In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily rescinded the new shipper reviews of Anhui Tongxin Aquatic Product & Food Co., Ltd. (Anhui), Huoshan New Three–Gold Food Trade Co., Ltd. (Huoshan), and Jingdezhen because it found the companies’ sales were not bona fide. See Preliminary Results; see also, separate memoranda for each of these companies to Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary For Import Administration from Abdelali Elouaradia, Director, Office 4 Import Administration, regarding Bona Fide Sales Analysis and Intent to Rescind the Review (dated October 1, 2007). We received comments with respect to our preliminary decision to rescind the new shipper review for Jingdezhen. The Department continues to find sales by Anhui, Huoshan, and Jingdezhen to be non–bona fide. See Comment 2 of the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results and Partial Rescission of the 2005–2006 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Rescission of 2005–2006 New Shipper Reviews’’ (Issues and Decision Memorandum) accompanying this notice for a detailed discussion of our decision with respect to Jingdezhen. Because these companies had no reviewable sales during the POR, the Department is rescinding these new shipper reviews. See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3); see also, Tianjin Tiancheng Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. v. United States, 366 F. Supp. 2d 1246, 1263 (CIT 2005) (the Court of International Trade affirmed that Commerce may exclude sales from the export price calculation where it finds the sales are not bona fide. In the case of new shipper reviews involving only one sale, exclusion of the new shipper sale as being non–bona fide must necessarily end the review). Final Partial Rescission of Administrative Review In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily rescinded the administrative review of Yancheng Hi– King Agriculture Developing Co., Ltd. (Yancheng), which reported no shipments, and Anhui, whose single sale, which was covered by both the new shipper review and administrative review, the Department found to be non–bona fide. Interested parties did not comment on these preliminary rescissions. For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, we are rescinding the administrative review with respect to Yancheng and Anhui. See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). E:\FR\FM\15APN1.SGM 15APN1
