SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The preliminary determination in this investigation was published on May 5, 2008. See Preliminary Determination. Since then, we conducted sales and cost verifications of the responses submitted by Polyplex Thailand Public Company Limited and Polyplex Americas, Inc. (collectively Polyplex). See Memoranda to the File from Stephen Bailey, Case Analyst, through Angelica L. Mendoza, Program Manager, Office 7, titled ‘‘Verification of the Sales Responses of Polyplex Thailand Public Company Limited in the Antidumping Investigation of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Film, Sheet, and Strip from Thailand’’ dated July 23, 2008 (Polyplex Verification Report); and ‘‘Verification of the U.S. Sales Responses of Polyplex Thailand Public Company Limited and its U.S. Affiliate, Polyplex (Americas), Inc., in the Antidumping Investigation of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Film, Sheet, and Strip from Thailand,’’ dated July 23, 2008 (Polyplex Americas Verification Report); see also Memorandum to the File through Neal M. Halper, from Angela Strom, titled ‘‘Verification of the Cost Response in the Investigation of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Film, Sheet, and Strip from Thailand,’’ dated July 15, 2008 (Polyplex Cost Verification Report). All verification reports are on file and available in the Central Records Unit (CRU), Room 1117, of the main Department of Commerce building. Based on the Department’s findings at verification, as well as the minor corrections presented by Polyplex at the start of the Thailand and U.S. verifications, we requested that respondent submit revised electronic sales databases for both the U.S. and comparison markets, and a revised cost database. See Letter from Angelica L. Mendoza, Program Manager, Office 7, to Polyplex, dated July 28, 2008. As requested, Polyplex submitted its revised sales and cost databases on July 30, 2008. On July 31, 2008, Polyplex PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55043 informed the Department that its July 30, 2008, revised U.S. sales database contained a transcription error in the reported returned and net quantity fields relating to a sale that the Department instructed Polyplex to correct. See Letter from Angelica L. Mendoza, Program Manager, Office 7, to Polyplex, dated July 28, 2008, at question 13 and Polyplex’s letter to the Department dated July 31, 2008. The error did not impact other data fields of the sale in question and the Department corrected the transcription error in the U.S. margin program. See lines 2257 through 2259 of the Department’s margin calculation program. We have also determined that an allegation of targeted dumping submitted by DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film of America, Inc., SKC, Inc. and Toray Plastics (America), Inc. (collectively, petitioners) on March 28, 2008, and supplemented on April 17, 2008, and May 23, 2008, was inadequate. See Memorandum from Angelica L. Mendoza, Program Manager, Office 7, to Richard O. Weible, Director, Office 7, regarding ‘‘Analysis on Targeting Dumping,’’ dated June 30, 2008 (Targeted Dumping Memo); see also Targeted Dumping section below. We received a case brief from petitioners on August 11, 2008, and a rebuttal brief from Polyplex on August 14, 2008.1 On August 26, 2008, we rejected an argument, and part of an argument, contained in Polyplex’s rebuttal case brief because they constituted new arguments and were not a rebuttal of petitioners’ case brief. See the Department’s August 26, 2008, letter to Polyplex. On August 28, 2008, we received Polyplex’s revised rebuttal brief per our August 26, 2008, letter. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this antidumping investigation are addressed in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Determination of the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip (PET Film) from Thailand’’ (Decision Memorandum) from Stephen J.

A list of the issues which parties have raised and to which we have 1 Polyplex submitted a letter to the Department on August 11, 2008, in which it agreed with the Department’s Preliminary Determination.
