SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is partially rescinding its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina for the period December 1, 2006, to November 30, 2007 with respect to eleven companies. This rescission, in part, is based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review by the interested parties that requested the review. A complete list of the companies for which the administrative review is being rescinded is provided in the background section below. AGENCY: EFFECTIVE DATE: June 16, 2008 rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Deborah Scott or Robert James, AD/CVD Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Room 7866, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–2657 or (202) 482–0649, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:04 Jun 13, 2008 Jkt 214001 BACKGROUND: On December 3, 2007, the Department published in the Federal Register its notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 72 FR 67889 (December 3, 2007). In response, on December 31, 2007, the American Honey Producers Association and the Sioux Honey Association (collectively, petitioners) requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina for the period December 1, 2006, through November 30, 2007. The petitioners requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of entries of subject merchandise made by thirteen Argentine producers/ exporters.1 In addition, the Department received requests for review from four Argentine exporters included in the petitioners’ request. Furthermore, the Department received one request from an exporter that was not included in petitioners’ request for review. On January 28, 2008, the Department initiated a review of the 14 companies2 for which an administrative review was requested. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 4829 (January 28, 2008). On February 19, 2007, petitioners timely withdrew their requests for review of the following companies: AGLH S.A., Algodonera Avellaneda S.A., Bomare S.A. (Bodegas Miguel Armengol), Mercoline S.A., Productos Afer S.A., and Seabird Argentina S.A. On March 18, 2008, petitioners timely withdrew their requests for review of El Mana S.A., HoneyMax S.A., and Nexco S.A. On May 22, 2008, both petitioners and CAA/Mielar submitted letters withdrawing their requests for an administrative review of CAA/Mielar. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is honey from Argentina. The products covered are natural honey, artificial honey containing more than 50 percent 1 Petitioners requested Compania Apicola Argentina S.A. (CAA) and Mielar S.A. (Mielar) as separate entities. However, in a previous segment of this proceeding, the Department treated these two companies as a single entity. 2 The Federal Register notice lists 15 companies but, as explained in footnote 1, CAA and Mielar are currently being treated as a single entity based on decisions made in a previous segment of this proceeding. Accordingly, there are a total of 14 companies for which reviews were requested. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 33975 natural honey by weight, preparations of natural honey containing more than 50 percent natural honey by weight, and flavored honey. The subject merchandise includes all grades and colors of honey whether in liquid, creamed, comb, cut comb, or chunk form, and whether packaged for retail or in bulk form. The merchandise under the scope of the order is currently classifiable under subheadings 0409.00.00, 1702.90.90, and 2106.90.99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) purposes, the Department’s written description of the merchandise under this order is dispositive. Rescission, in Part, of Administrative Review Section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, or withdraws at a later date if the Department determines it is reasonable to extend the time limit for withdrawing the request. The petitioners timely withdrew their requests for an administrative review within the 90-day deadline for the following companies: AGLH S.A., Algodonera Avellaneda S.A., Bomare S.A. (Bodegas Miguel Armengol), El Mana S.A., HoneyMax S.A., Mercoline S.A., Nexco S.A., Productos Afer S.A., and Seabird Argentina S.A. Because the petitioners were the only party to request administrative review of each of these companies, we are rescinding the review with regard to AGLH S.A., Algodonera Avellaneda S.A., Bomare S.A. (Bodegas Miguel Armengol), El Mana S.A., HoneyMax S.A., Mercoline S.A., Nexco S.A., Productos Afer S.A., and Seabird Argentina S.A. With respect to CAA/Mielar, both petitioners and CAA/Mielar withdrew their review requests after the 90-day deadline, despite petitioners’ and CAA/ Mielar’s claims to the contrary in their May 22, 2008 requests for withdrawal. However, the Department finds it reasonable to extend the withdrawal deadline for CAA/Mielar because the Department has not yet devoted significant time or resources to this review. Further, we find that neither petitioners’ nor CAA/Mielar’s withdrawal of their requests for a review of CAA/Mielar constitutes an abuse of E:\FR\FM\16JNN1.SGM 16JNN1
