The duty rates on the imported components range from duty– free to 15 percent. This application requests authority for HBC to conduct the manufacturing activity under FTZ procedures, which would exempt the company from customs duty payments on the imported components used in export production. Approximately 50 percent of production is exported. On domestic sales, the company could choose the lower duty rate (duty–free) that applies to the finished product for the imported components used in manufacturing. HBC may also realize savings related to direct delivery and weekly customs entry procedures. The company will also realize savings on the elimination of duties on materials that become scrap/waste during manufacturing. Additionally, customs duties could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. 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 addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address listed below. The closing period for their receipt is June 23, 2008.

Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are certain preserved mushrooms, whether imported whole, sliced, diced, or as stems and pieces. The certain preserved mushrooms covered under this order are the species Agaricus bisporus and Agaricus bitorquis. ‘‘Certain Preserved Mushrooms’’ refers to mushrooms that have been prepared or preserved by cleaning, blanching, and sometimes slicing or cutting. These mushrooms are then packed and heated in containers including, but not limited to, cans or glass jars in a suitable liquid medium, including, but not limited to, water, brine, butter or butter sauce. Certain preserved mushrooms may be imported whole, sliced, diced, or as stems and pieces. Included within the scope of this order are ‘‘brined’’ mushrooms, which are presalted and packed in a heavy salt solution to provisionally preserve them for further processing. Excluded from the scope of this order are the following: (1) All other species of mushroom, including straw mushrooms; (2) all fresh and chilled mushrooms, including ‘‘refrigerated’’ or ‘‘quick blanched mushrooms’’ (3) dried mushrooms; (4) frozen mushrooms; and (5) ‘‘marinated,’’ ‘‘acidified,’’ or ‘‘pickled’’ mushrooms, which are prepared or preserved by means of vinegar or acetic acid, but may contain oil or other additives.1 The merchandise subject to this order is classifiable under subheadings: 2003.10.0127, 2003.10.0131, 2003.10.0137, 2003.10.0143, 2003.10.0147, 2003.10.0153 and 0711.51.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’).

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) preliminarily determines that sodium nitrite from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV), as provided in section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE AGENCY: Notice of an open meeting via teleconference. ACTION: On November 8, 2007, the Department received petitions concerning imports of sodium nitrite from the PRC and the Federal Republic of Germany filed in proper form by General Chemical LLC (petitioner). The Department initiated antidumping duty investigations of sodium nitrite from the above– PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 mentioned countries on November 28, 2007. See Sodium Nitrite from the Federal Republic of Germany and the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations, 72 FR 68563 (December 5, 2007) (Initiation Notice). In the ‘‘Respondent Selection’’ section of the Initiation Notice, the Department stated that it intended to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data. On the date of publication of the Initiation Notice, the Department released to parties under an Administrative Protective Order (APO), the CBP data obtained for respondent selection purposes. On December 12, 2007, the petitioner submitted comments regarding respondent selection, urging the Department to select as mandatory respondents, two PRC exporters who accounted for the majority of the sodium nitrite imported into the United States from the PRC during the period of investigation (POI). The Department did not receive any other comments from interested parties concerning respondent selection. In order to identify the universe of potential respondents for purposes of this investigation, the Department analyzed information obtained from the petition, CBP, and its own research. The petition identified 92 exporters and producers of sodium nitrite from the PRC. The Department obtained public information for two exporters and/or producers of the subject merchandise that are identified in the CBP data, Qingdao Hengyuan Chemical Co., Ltd. (Qingdao), and Hualong Ammonium Nitrate Company Ltd. (Hualong). The Department determined that Qingdao and Hualong were the appropriate respondents in this investigation because they represent all publicly identified PRC exporters of subject merchandise during the POI. On December 31, 2007, the Department selected Qingdao and Hualong as mandatory respondents. See Memorandum regarding ‘‘Identification of Respondents in the Antidumping Investigation of Sodium Nitrite from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated December 31, 2007 (Respondent Selection Memorandum). On December 26, 2007, the International Trade Commission (ITC) preliminarily determined that there is a reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of sodium nitrite from Germany and the PRC. See Sodium Nitrite from China and Germany, 73 FR 2278 (January 14, 2008). E:\FR\FM\23APN1.SGM 23APN1

    No party requested a hearing for this new shipper review.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are certain preserved mushrooms, 
whether imported whole, sliced, diced, or as stems and pieces. The 
certain preserved mushrooms covered under this order are the species 
Agaricus bisporus and Agaricus bitorquis. ``Certain Preserved 
Mushrooms'' refers to mushrooms that have been prepared or preserved by 
cleaning, blanching, and sometimes slicing or cutting. These mushrooms 
are then packed and heated in containers including, but not limited to, 
cans or glass jars in a suitable liquid medium, including, but not 
limited to, water, brine, butter or butter sauce. Certain preserved 
mushrooms may be imported whole, sliced, diced, or as stems and pieces. 
Included within the scope of this order are ``brined'' mushrooms, which 
are presalted and packed in a heavy salt solution to provisionally 
preserve them for further processing.
    Excluded from the scope of this order are the following: (1) All 
other species of mushroom, including straw mushrooms; (2) all fresh and 
chilled mushrooms, including ``refrigerated'' or ``quick blanched 
mushrooms'' (3) dried mushrooms; (4) frozen mushrooms; and (5) 
``marinated,'' ``acidified,'' or ``pickled'' mushrooms, which are 
prepared or preserved by means of vinegar or acetic acid, but may 
contain oil or other additives.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ On June 19, 2000, the Department affirmed that 
``marinated,'' ``acidified,'' or ``pickled'' mushrooms containing 
less than 0.5 percent acetic acid are within the scope of the 
antidumping duty order. See ``Recommendation Memorandum--Final 
Ruling of Request by Tak Fat, et al. for Exclusion of Certain 
Marinated, Acidified Mushrooms from the Scope of the Antidumping 
Duty Order on Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People's Republic 
of China,'' dated June 19, 2000. On February 9, 2005, this decision 
was upheld by the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal 
Circuit. See Tak Fat v. United States, 396 F.3d 1378 (Fed Cir. 
2005).

    All issues raised in the post-preliminary comments by parties in 
this review are addressed in the memorandum from Stephen J. Claeys, 
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. 
Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, ``Issues and 
Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Eleventh Antidumping 
Duty New Shipper Review on Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the 
People's Republic of China,'' dated April 17, 2008 (``Issues and 
Decision Memorandum''), which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list 
of the issues that parties raised and to which we responded in the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this notice as an

is on file in the Central Records Unit (``CRU'') in room 1117 in the 
main Commerce Department building, and is also accessible on the Web at 
https://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the 
memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made the 
following changes in the margin calculations for the final results: (1) 
We used the 2006-2007 annual report of Agro Dutch Industries Limited 
(Agro Dutch) to value fresh mushrooms and (2) we used the average 2006-
2007 data from the annual reports of Agro Dutch and Flex Foods Limited 
to calculate surrogate financial ratios.

Final Results of the Review

    The Department has determined that the following final dumping 
margin exists for the period February 1, 2006, through January 31, 
2007:


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

                                  Ltd.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, 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 for Ayecue to CBP after 15 days of the 
date of publication of the final results of review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), we will calculate importer-specific (or customer) ad 
valerom duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of 
the dumping margins calculated for the examined sales to the total 
entered value of those same sales. We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if 
any importer-specific (or customer) assessment rate calculated in the 
final results of this review is above de minimis.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results of the new shipper review for all 
shipments of subject merchandise exported by Ayecue International SLU 
and produced by Ayecue (Liaocheng) Foodstuff Co., Ltd. entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 
date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the ``Act''): (1) For subject merchandise exported by Ayecue 
International SLU and produced by Ayecue (Liaocheng) Foodstuff Co., 
Ltd., no cash deposit will be required; (2) for subject merchandise 
exported by Ayecue International SLU but not manufactured by Ayecue 
(Liaocheng) Foodstuff Co., Ltd. the cash deposit rate will continue to 
be the PRC-wide rate (i.e., 198.63 percent); and (3) for subject 
merchandise manufactured by Ayecue

[[Page 21906]]

(Liaocheng) Foodstuff Co., Ltd., but exported by any party other than 
Ayecue International SLU, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the exporter. These cash deposit requirements will remain 
in effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this POR. 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.

 Administrative Protective Orders

    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, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. 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 terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    This new shipper review and notice are in accordance with sections 
751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(h).

    Dated: April 17, 2008.
