SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The International Trade Administration’s U.S. Commercial Service (CS) is mandated by Congress to help U.S. businesses, particularly small and medium-sized companies, export their products and services to global markets. The Commercial Service provides this valuable assistance through a variety of channels including U.S. Export Assistance Center (USEAC) Web sites and the International Trade Administration’s Export.gov Web site. The CS operates 117 Export Assistance Centers throughout the U.S. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72447 where U.S. companies can meet with International Trade Specialists to receive export counseling and other export-related services such as market research, due diligence and foreign partner identification. Prior to meeting with a Trade Specialist a U.S. company may visit a USEAC Web site and complete a USEAC Internet Form to request that a Trade Specialist contact them. This USEAC Interest Form asks clients to provide company contact information and some company details including products or services to be exported and potential export markets of interest. This information allows the Trade Specialist to contact the client and make appropriate preparations for the initial client discussion. Although each USEAC will require similar information about a client, there may be some very minor modifications to the USEAC Internet Form depending upon unique circumstances at a particular USEAC. The CS would also like to renew approval for a revised Export.gov Web site registration form. ITA’s Export.gov Web site provides U.S. businesses with valuable export-related resources including an export manual and information regarding export topics such as financing, international logistics, export documentation, trade leads and trade events. Clients are required to register on the site to gain access to certain information such as trade leads and market research which are only available to American companies. The registration information also allows CS to tailor the Web site to improve usability and better meet clients’ needs. For example a firm that registers as being ‘‘new to exporting’’ would be directed to basic exporting information that is most appropriate for firms that have not yet exported. Whereas a firm that registers as an experienced exporter, who has already mastered exporting basics, would be directed to resources that are targeted to companies that are ready to expand current export efforts and seek new markets. II. Method of Collection In the majority of cases the information will be collected electronically via the Internet, although some clients may submit the information via telephone, fax, or e-mail.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On April 1, 2008, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:16 Nov 26, 2008 Jkt 217001 published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on magnesium metal from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 73 FR 17317 (April 1, 2008). On April 30, 2008, Tianjin Magnesium International Co., Ltd. (‘‘TMI’’) requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of TMI’sexports to the United States for the period of review (‘‘POR’’) April 1, 2007, through March 31, 2008. Pursuant to this request, the Department published a notice of the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on magnesium metal from the PRC. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 31813 (June 4, 2008). Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation. On September 2, 2008, TMI timely withdrew its request for a review, and no other interested party requested a review of this company. Therefore, the Department is rescinding this administrative review of the antidumping duty order on magnesium metal from the PRC covering the period April 1, 2007, through March 31, 2008, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Notification to Interested Parties 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. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.402(f)(3), failure to comply PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. 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 and as explained in the APO itself. Timely written notification of the return/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. This notice is in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: November 20, 2008. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc.

I. Abstract

    The International Trade Administration's U.S. Commercial Service 
(CS) is mandated by Congress to help U.S. businesses, particularly 
small and medium-sized companies, export their products and services to 
global markets. The Commercial Service provides this valuable 
assistance through a variety of channels including U.S. Export 
Assistance Center (USEAC) Web sites and the International Trade 
Administration's Export.gov Web site.
    The CS operates 117 Export Assistance Centers throughout the U.S. 
where U.S. companies can meet with International Trade Specialists to 
receive export counseling and other export-related services such as 
market research, due diligence and foreign partner identification. 
Prior to meeting with a Trade Specialist a U.S. company may visit a 
USEAC Web site and complete a USEAC Internet Form to request that a 
Trade Specialist contact them. This USEAC Interest Form asks clients to 
provide company contact information and some company details including 
products or services to be exported and potential export markets of 
interest. This information allows the Trade Specialist to contact the 
client and make appropriate preparations for the initial client 
discussion. Although each USEAC will require similar information about 
a client, there may be some very minor modifications to the USEAC 
Internet Form depending upon unique circumstances at a particular 
USEAC.
    The CS would also like to renew approval for a revised Export.gov 
Web site registration form. ITA's Export.gov Web site provides U.S. 
businesses with valuable export-related resources including an export 
manual and information regarding export topics such as financing, 
international logistics, export documentation, trade leads and trade 
events. Clients are required to register on the site to gain access to 
certain information such as trade leads and market research which are 
only available to American companies. The registration information also 
allows CS to tailor the Web site to improve usability and better meet 
clients' needs. For example a firm that registers as being ``new to 
exporting'' would be directed to basic exporting information that is 
most appropriate for firms that have not yet exported. Whereas a firm 
that registers as an experienced exporter, who has already mastered 
exporting basics, would be directed to resources that are targeted to 
companies that are ready to expand current export efforts and seek new 
markets.
