SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On June 25, 2004, the Department published in the Federal Register the amended antidumping duty order on certain color television receivers from the PRC. See Notice of Amended Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Color Television Receivers from the People’s Republic of China, 69 FR 35583 (June 25, 2004) (‘‘Order’’). On June 9, 2008, the Department published a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request an Administrative Review’’ of the Order for the POR. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 73 FR 32557, 32558 (June 9, 2008). On June 26, 2008, the petitioner requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of sales of merchandise by the following 13 companies: Haier Electric Appliances International Co., Hisense Import and Export Co., Ltd., Konka Group Company, Ltd., Philips Consumer Electronics Co. of Suzhou Ltd., Shenzhen Chaungwei-RGB Electronics Co., Ltd., Sichuan Changhong Electric Co., Ltd., Starlight International Holdings, Ltd., Star Light Electronics Co., Ltd., Star Fair Electronics Co., Ltd., Starlight Marketing Development Ltd., SVA Group Co., Ltd., TCL Holding Company Ltd., and Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co., Ltd. In response to this request, the Department published the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review on certain color television receivers from the PRC on July 30, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 44220, 44221 (July 30, 2008). No other party requested a review. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On August 18, 2008, TCL Multimedia Technology Holdings Ltd., a PRC producer of subject merchandise, and its wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, TTE Technology, Inc., a U.S. importer of subject merchandise, (collectively, ‘‘TCL’’), submitted a letter in which it claimed that the subject merchandise it entered for consumption during the review period was re-exported to Canada and not sold within the United States to unaffiliated customers. For this reason, it requested that the Department rescind the review with respect to TCL and liquidate TCL’s entries during the review period without regard to antidumping duties. TCL repeated its request on September 23, 2008. On August 21, 2008, Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xiamen’’) provided a submission in which it alleged that this administrative review should be terminated because the review request was not made by a domestic interested party as required by the Department’s regulations. According to Xiamen, the petitioner filed for bankruptcy in October 2004, and has not produced CTVs in the United States in nearly two years. Since the petitioner did not produce CTVs during the review period, Xiamen argued that it is not entitled to request an administrative review of this order. On September 17, 2008, petitioner withdrew its request of review of all companies for which it requested review. Rescission of the Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review under this section, in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Petitioner withdrew its requests for review for all companies within the 90day time limit. No other company had requested a review of these or any other companies. Therefore, in response to the withdrawal of requests for administrative reviews by petitioner, the Department hereby rescinds the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain color television receivers from the PRC for the period June 1, 2007, through May 31, 2008, for all 13 companies listed above. For companies that have a separate rate, the Department intends to issue assessment instructions to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) 15 days after the date of publication of this notice. Since this is a full rescission of the administrative review, we will also issue liquidation instructions for E:\FR\FM\02OCN1.SGM 02OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 192 / Thursday, October 2, 2008 / Notices the PRC-wide entity to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 25, 2004, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the amended antidumping duty order on certain color television 
receivers from the PRC. See Notice of Amended Antidumping Duty Order: 
Certain Color Television Receivers from the People's Republic of China, 
69 FR 35583 (June 25, 2004) (``Order''). On June 9, 2008, the 
Department published a notice of ``Opportunity to Request an 
Administrative Review'' of the Order for the POR. See Antidumping or 
Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; 
Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 73 FR 32557, 32558 (June 
9, 2008). On June 26, 2008, the petitioner requested that the 
Department conduct an administrative review of sales of merchandise by 
the following 13 companies: Haier Electric Appliances International 
Co., Hisense Import and Export Co., Ltd., Konka Group Company, Ltd., 
Philips Consumer Electronics Co. of Suzhou Ltd., Shenzhen Chaungwei-RGB 
Electronics Co., Ltd., Sichuan Changhong Electric Co., Ltd., Starlight 
International Holdings, Ltd., Star Light Electronics Co., Ltd., Star 
Fair Electronics Co., Ltd., Starlight Marketing Development Ltd., SVA 
Group Co., Ltd., TCL Holding Company Ltd., and Xiamen Overseas Chinese 
Electronic Co., Ltd. In response to this request, the Department 
published the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review 
on certain color television receivers from the PRC on July 30, 2008. 
See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 44220, 44221 (July 
30, 2008). No other party requested a review.
    On August 18, 2008, TCL Multimedia Technology Holdings Ltd., a PRC 
producer of subject merchandise, and its wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, 
TTE Technology, Inc., a U.S. importer of subject merchandise, 
(collectively, ``TCL''), submitted a letter in which it claimed that 
the subject merchandise it entered for consumption during the review 
period was re-exported to Canada and not sold within the United States 
to unaffiliated customers. For this reason, it requested that the 
Department rescind the review with respect to TCL and liquidate TCL's 
entries during the review period without regard to antidumping duties. 
TCL repeated its request on September 23, 2008.
    On August 21, 2008, Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co., Ltd. 
(``Xiamen'') provided a submission in which it alleged that this 
administrative review should be terminated because the review request 
was not made by a domestic interested party as required by the 
Department's regulations. According to Xiamen, the petitioner filed for 
bankruptcy in October 2004, and has not produced CTVs in the United 
States in nearly two years. Since the petitioner did not produce CTVs 
during the review period, Xiamen argued that it is not entitled to 
request an administrative review of this order.
    On September 17, 2008, petitioner withdrew its request of review of 
all companies for which it requested review.

Rescission of the Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review under this section, in whole or in part, if a 
party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of 
the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested 
review. Petitioner withdrew its requests for review for all companies 
within the 90-day time limit. No other company had requested a review 
of these or any other companies. Therefore, in response to the 
withdrawal of requests for administrative reviews by petitioner, the 
Department hereby rescinds the administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on certain color television receivers from the PRC for the 
period June 1, 2007, through May 31, 2008, for all 13 companies listed 
above. For companies that have a separate rate, the Department intends 
to issue assessment instructions to the U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') 15 days after the date of publication of this 
notice. Since this is a full rescission of the administrative review, 
we will also issue liquidation instructions for

[[Page 57335]]

the PRC-wide entity to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
this notice.
    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or 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 sanctionable 
violation.
    This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
