On August 6, 2007, the Department published a notice of initiation of an antidumping duty administrative review on silicon metal from the PRC, in which it initiated a review of these Respondents. See Notice of Initiation of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Silicon Metal from the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 43597 (August 6, 2007) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). On March 7, 2008, we preliminarily rescinded this review for certain companies based on evidence on the record indicating that there were no entries into the United States, and applied adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) to other companies which did not VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:01 Aug 08, 2008 Jkt 214001 Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is silicon metal containing at least 96.00 but less than 99.99 percent of silicon by weight, and silicon metal with a higher aluminum content containing between 89 and 96 percent silicon by weight. The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under item numbers 2804.69.10 and 2804.69.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) as a chemical product, but is commonly referred to as a metal. Semiconductor–grade silicon (silicon metal containing by weight not less than 99.99 percent of silicon and provided for in subheading 2804.61.00 of the HTSUS) is not subject to this order. This order is not limited to silicon metal used only as an alloy agent or in the chemical industry. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive. Period of Review The POR is June 1, 2006, through May 31, 2007. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in Petitioner’s April 8, 2008 case brief are addressed in the Silicon Metal from the People’s Republic of China: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results in the 2006–2007 Administrative Review from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary, dated August 4, 2008, (‘‘I&D Memo’’), which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues raised, all of which are addressed in the I&D Memo, is attached to this notice as Appendix I. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in the briefs and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’), room 1117 of the Department of Commerce. In PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46587 addition, a complete version of the I&D Memo can be accessed directly on the internet at http://trade.gov/ia. The paper copy and electronic version of the I&D Memo are identical in content. Final Rescission of Review In the Preliminary Results, the Department issued a notice of intent to rescind this administrative review with respect to certain companies, as Jiangxi Gangyuan Silicon Industry (‘‘Gangyuan’’); MPM Silicones, LLC (‘‘MPM’’); GE Silicones Canada (‘‘GE Silicones’’); Global Minerals Corp. (‘‘GMC’’); Transtrading House Ltd. (‘‘Transtrading’’); Lorbec Metals Ltd. (‘‘Lorbec’’); Carbonsi Mettalurgical Inc. (‘‘Carbonsi’’); Crown All Corporation (‘‘Crown All’’); Ferro–Alliages& Mineraux Inc. (‘‘Ferro–Alliages’’); Chemical & Alloy Inc. (‘‘C&A’’); IMMECC Resources Inc. (‘‘IMMECC’’); and Bomet (Canada) Inc. (‘‘Bomet’’), each certified that they did not export silicon metal from China to the United States during the POR. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR 12378. Subsequent to the Preliminary Results, Petitioners again claimed that record evidence indicated that Ferro–Alliages may have transshipped silicon metal to the United States through Canada that originated in China.1 See Petitioner Case Brief at 1– 12. Petitioner requested that, given these allegations, the Department should investigate whether Ferro–Alliages accurately reported the country of origin of the silicon metal that it shipped to the United States during the POR. For these final results, however, we have determined not to further investigate alleged Ferro–Alliages exports of PRC– origin silicon metal, as CBP data indicate that no entries exist for PRC– origin silicon metal exported to the United States by Ferro–Alliages. In addition, as this is an administrative review, not a circumvention or scope inquiry, we find that this is not the proper proceeding to pursue Petitioner’s claims. Because there is no information on the record which indicates that Gangyuan; MPM; GE Silicones; GMC; Transtrading; Lorbec; Carbonsi; Crown All; Ferro–Alliages; C&A; IMMECC; and Bomet made sales to the United States of subject merchandise during the POR, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) and consistent with our practice, we are rescinding this review 1 Petitioner first raised the issue of alleged transshipment by Ferro–Alliages in its November 13, 2007, submission to the Department. See Petitioner’s November 13, 2007, submission, at page 1. The Department addressed these allegations in its Preliminary Results. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12379. E:\FR\FM\11AUN1.SGM 11AUN1
