VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:06 Oct 20, 2008 Jkt 217001 Background At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cut–to-length carbon–quality steel plate products from the Republic of Korea for the period February 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 73 FR 16837 (March 31, 2008). The preliminary results of this administrative review are currently due no later than October 31, 2008. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review by the current deadline of October 31, 2008, for several reasons. Specifically, the Department has granted the respondent, Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd. (DSM), several extensions to respond to the original and supplemental questionnaires.1 Thus, the Department requires additional time to review and analyze the sales and cost responses submitted by DSM. Further, the Department requires additional time to review issues such as corporate affiliations and to analyze the changes in DSM’s product–coding system as it will affect the Department’s matching methodology in this case. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 45 days until December 15, 2008. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). 1 See, e.g., letter to Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd., from Laurie Parkhill, dated August 28, 2008.

We conducted a verification of Far Eastern Textile Limited’s (FET) homemarket and U.S. sales from June 16 through 19, 2008, and we issued a verification report on July 11, 2008. We invited interested parties to comment on the preliminary results and our verification findings. We received case and rebuttal briefs from Weliman, Inc., and Invista, S,a.r.1. (collectively, the petitioners), and FET. The period of review (POR) is May 1, 2006, through April 30, 2007. We have conducted this review in accordance with section 75 1(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is certain polyester staple fiber (PSF). PSF is defined as synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed or otherwise processed for spinning, of polyesters measuring 3.3 decitex (3 denier, inclusive) or more in diameter. This merchandise is cut to lengths varying from one inch (25 mm) to five inches (127 mm). The merchandise subject to the order may be coated, usually with a silicon or other finish, or not coated. PSF is generally used as stuffing in sleeping bags, mattresses, ski jackets, comforters, cushions, pillows, and furniture. Merchandise of less than 3.3 decitex (less than 3 denier) currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheading 5503.20.00.251 is specifically excluded from the order. Also specifically excluded from the order are polyester staple fibers of 10 to 18 denier that are cut to lengths of 6 to 8 inches (fibers used in the manufacture of carpeting). In addition, low-melt PSF is excluded from the order. Low-melt PSF is defined as a bi-component fiber with an outer sheath that melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner core. The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable in the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.45 and 5503.20.00.65. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive.

In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Web. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Results of the COP Test Pursuant to section 773(b)(2)(C)(i) of the Act, where less than 20 percent of sales of a given product were at prices less than the cost of production (COP), we did not disregard any below-cost sales of that product because we determined that the below-cost sales were not made in ‘‘substantial quantities.’’ Where 20 percent or more of a respondent’s sales of a given product during the POR were at prices less than the COP, we determined such sales to have been made in ‘‘substantial quantities.’’ See section 773(b)(2)(C) of the Act. The sales were made within an extended period of time in accordance with section 773(b)(2)(B) of the Act because we examined below-cost sales occurring during the entire POR. In such cases, because we compared prices to POR-average costs, we also determined that such sales were not made at prices which would permit recovery of all costs within a reasonable period of time, in accordance with section 773(b)(2)(D) of the Act. We found that, for certain products, more than 20 percent of the respondent’s home-market sales were at prices less than the COP and, thus, the below-cost sales were made within an extended period of time and in substantial quantities. See section 773(b)(2)(C)(i) of the Act. In addition, these sales were made at prices that did not permit the recovery of costs within a reasonable period of time. See section 773(b)(2)(D) of the Act. Therefore, we excluded these sales and used the remaining sales, if any, as the basis for determining normal value, in accordance with section 773(h)(1) of the Act. PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Final Results of the Review We find that a dumping margin of 1.72 percent exists for FET for the period May 1, 2006, through April 30, 2007. Assessment of Duties The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Although FET indicated that it was not the importer of record for any of its sales to the United States during the POR, it reported the name of the importers of record for all of its U.S. sales. Because FET reported the entered value for all of its U.S. sales, we have calculated importer-specific assessment rates for the merchandise in question by aggregating the dumping margins we calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer and dividing this amount by the total entered value of those sales. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the respondent for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR23954 (May 6, 2003). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these final results of review. Cash-Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements are effective for all shipments of PSF from Taiwan entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) The cash-deposit rate for FET will be 1.72 percent; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in the original less-thanfair-value investigation or previous reviews, the cash-deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash-deposit rate E:\FR\FM\21OCN1.SGM 21OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 204 / Tuesday, October 21, 2008 / Notices will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this review, the cash-deposit rate will be 7.31 percent, the all-others rate established in Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber From the Republic of Korea and Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber From the Republic of Korea and Taiwan, 65 FR33807 (May 25, 2000).

All uncovered innerspring units are included in this scope regardless of width and length. Included within this definition are innersprings typically ranging from 30.5 inches to 76 inches in width and 68 inches to 84 inches in length. Innersprings for crib mattresses typically range from 25 inches to 27 inches in width and 50 inches to 52 inches in length. Uncovered innerspring units are suitable for use as the innerspring component in the manufacture of innerspring mattresses, including mattresses that incorporate a foam encasement around the innerspring. Pocketed and non–pocketed innerspring units are included in this definition. Non–pocketed innersprings are typically joined together with helical wire and border rods. Non–pocketed innersprings are included in this definition regardless of whether they have border rods attached to the perimeter of the innerspring. Pocketed innersprings are individual coils covered by a ‘‘pocket’’ or ‘‘sock’’ of a nonwoven synthetic material or woven material and then glued together in a linear fashion. Uncovered innersprings are classified under subheading 9404.29.9010 and have also been classified under subheadings 9404.10.0000, 7326.20.00.70, 7320.20.5010, or 7320.90.5010 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).

Administrative Review, 73 FR 31433 (June 2, 2008).
    We conducted a verification of Far Eastern Textile Limited's (FET) 
home-market and U.S. sales from June 16 through 19, 2008, and we issued 
a verification report on July 11, 2008. We invited interested parties 
to comment on the preliminary results and our verification findings.
    We received case and rebuttal briefs from Weliman, Inc., and 
Invista, S,a.r.1. (collectively, the petitioners), and FET. The period 
of review (POR) is May 1, 2006, through April 30, 2007. We have 
conducted this review in accordance with section 75 1(a) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is certain polyester staple fiber 
(PSF). PSF is defined as synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed or 
otherwise processed for spinning, of polyesters measuring 3.3 decitex 
(3 denier, inclusive) or more in diameter. This merchandise is cut to 
lengths varying from one inch (25 mm) to five inches (127 mm). The 
merchandise subject to the order may be coated, usually with a silicon 
or other finish, or not coated. PSF is generally used as stuffing in 
sleeping bags, mattresses, ski jackets, comforters, cushions, pillows, 
and furniture. Merchandise of less than 3.3 decitex (less than 3 
denier) currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTSUS) at subheading 5503.20.00.25\1\ is 
specifically excluded from the order. Also specifically excluded from 
the order are polyester staple fibers of 10 to 18 denier that are cut 
to lengths of 6 to 8 inches (fibers used in the manufacture of 
carpeting). In addition, low-melt PSF is excluded from the order. Low-
melt PSF is defined as a bi-component fiber with an outer sheath that 
melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner core.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The most current edition of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
of the United States (2006)--Supplement I (Rev 1) (August 1, 2006) 
incorporates the revision of HTSUS number 5503.20.00.20 to 
5503.20.00.25.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable in 
the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.45 and 5503.20.00.65. Although the 
HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this review are addressed in the October 14, 2008, ``Issues and 
Decision Memorandum for the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of 
Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from Taiwan'' (Decision Memorandum), 
which is hereby adopted by this notice. Attached to this notice as an 
appendix is a list of the issues which parties have raised and to which 
we have responded in the Decision Memorandum. Parties can find a 
complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and the 
corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on 
file in the Department's Central Records Unit, Room 1117 of the main 
Department building (CRU). In addition, a complete version of the 
Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Web. The paper copy 
and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in 
content.

Results of the COP Test

    Pursuant to section 773(b)(2)(C)(i) of the Act, where less than 20 
percent of sales of a given product were at prices less than the cost 
of production (COP), we did not disregard any below-cost sales of that 
product because we determined that the below-cost sales were not made 
in ``substantial quantities.'' Where 20 percent or more of a 
respondent's sales of a given product during the POR were at prices 
less than the COP, we determined such sales to have been made in 
``substantial quantities.'' See section 773(b)(2)(C) of the Act. The 
sales were made within an extended period of time in accordance with 
section 773(b)(2)(B) of the Act because we examined below-cost sales 
occurring during the entire POR. In such cases, because we compared 
prices to POR-average costs, we also determined that such sales were 
not made at prices which would permit recovery of all costs within a 
reasonable period of time, in accordance with section 773(b)(2)(D) of 
the Act.
    We found that, for certain products, more than 20 percent of the 
respondent's home-market sales were at prices less than the COP and, 
thus, the below-cost sales were made within an extended period of time 
and in substantial quantities. See section 773(b)(2)(C)(i) of the Act. 
In addition, these sales were made at prices that did not permit the 
recovery of costs within a reasonable period of time. See section 
773(b)(2)(D) of the Act. Therefore, we excluded these sales and used 
the remaining sales, if any, as the basis for determining normal value, 
in accordance with section 773(h)(1) of the Act.

Final Results of the Review

    We find that a dumping margin of 1.72 percent exists for FET for 
the period May 1, 2006, through April 30, 2007.

Assessment of Duties

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. Although FET indicated that it was not the importer of record 
for any of its sales to the United States during the POR, it reported 
the name of the importers of record for all of its U.S. sales. Because 
FET reported the entered value for all of its U.S. sales, we have 
calculated importer-specific assessment rates for the merchandise in 
question by aggregating the dumping margins we calculated for all U.S. 
sales to each importer and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of those sales.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping
    Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This clarification will apply to 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the 
respondent for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for 
the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full 
discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Proceedings Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR23954 (May 6, 
2003). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions directly 
to CBP 15 days after publication of these final results of review.

Cash-Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements are effective for all shipments 
of PSF from Taiwan entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption 
on or after the publication date of these final results, as provided by 
section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) The cash-deposit rate for FET will be 
1.72 percent; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or 
exporters not covered in this review but covered in the original less-

manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor 
the manufacturer is a firm covered in this review, the cash-deposit

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. 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.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also 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 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and this notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: October 14, 2008.
David M. Spooner,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
