E8–30690 Filed 12–23–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with November anniversary dates. In accordance with the Department’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. The Department received a request to revoke one antidumping duty order in part. DATES: Effective Date: December 24, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sheila E. Forbes, Office of AD/CVD Operations, Customs Unit, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC20230, telephone: (202) 482–4697. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b) (2007), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with November anniversary dates. The Department also received a timely request to revoke in part the antidumping duty order on Fresh Garlic from the People’s Republic of China with respect to one exporter. Notice of No Sales Under 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind a review where there are no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise during the respective period of review listed below. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 79055 If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the period of review, it should notify the Department within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. The Department will consider rescinding the review only if the producer or exporter, as appropriate, submits a properly filed and timely statement certifying that it had no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise during the period of review. All submissions must be made in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303 and are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Six copies of the submission should be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy of each request must be served on every party on the Department’s service list. Respondent Selection In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the period of review (POR). We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of this initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 20 days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within 10 calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. Separate Rates In proceedings involving non-market economy (NME) countries, the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the Department’s policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a separate rate. To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from government control of its export activities to be entitled to a separate rate, the Department analyzes each E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1 79056 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 248 / Wednesday, December 24, 2008 / Notices entity exporting the subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People’s Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991) (Sparklers), as amplified by Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from the People’s Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2,1994) (Silicon Carbide). In accordance with the separate-rates criteria, the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME cases only if respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto government control over export activities. All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate-rate status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must complete, as appropriate, either a separate-rate application or certification, as described below. For these administrative reviews, in order to demonstrate separate-rate eligibility, the Department requires entities for whom a review was requested, that were assigned a separate rate in the most recent segment of this proceeding in which they participated, to certify that they continue to meet the criteria for obtaining a separate rate. The Separate Rate Certification form will be available on the Department’s Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/nme.nme-seprate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the certification, please follow the ‘‘Instructions for Filing the Certification’’ in the Separate Rate Certification. Separate Rate Certifications are due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States. For entities that have not previously been assigned a separate rate, to demonstrate eligibility for such, the Department requires a Separate Rate Status Application. The Separate Rate Status Application will be available on the Department’s Web site at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/nme.nme-sep-rate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the Separate Rate Status Application, refer to the instructions contained in the application. Separate Rate Status Applications are due to the Department no later than 60 calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Separate Rate Status Application applies equally to NMEowned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States.

Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has received 
requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders and findings with November anniversary 
dates. In accordance with the Department's regulations, we are 
initiating those administrative reviews. The Department received a 
request to revoke one antidumping duty order in part.

DATES: Effective Date: December 24, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sheila E. Forbes, Office of AD/CVD 
Operations, Customs Unit, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC20230, telephone: (202) 482-
4697.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(b) (2007), for administrative reviews of various 
antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with November 
anniversary dates. The Department also received a timely request to 
revoke in part the antidumping duty order on Fresh Garlic from the 
People's Republic of China with respect to one exporter.

Notice of No Sales

    Under 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind a review 
where there are no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise 
during the respective period of review listed below. If a producer or 
exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or 
entries during the period of review, it should notify the Department 
within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. 
The Department will consider rescinding the review only if the producer 
or exporter, as appropriate, submits a properly filed and timely 
statement certifying that it had no exports, sales, or entries of 
subject merchandise during the period of review. All submissions must 
be made in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303 and are subject to 
verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act). Six copies of the submission should be 
submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, 
International Trade Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of 
Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. 
Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy of each 
request must be served on every party on the Department's service list.

Respondent Selection

    In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination for administrative reviews, the Department 
intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the period of review 
(POR). We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative 
Protective Order (APO) to all parties having an APO within five days of 
publication of this initiation notice and to make our decision 
regarding respondent selection within 20 days of publication of this 
Federal Register notice. The Department invites comments regarding the 
CBP data and respondent selection within 10 calendar days of 
publication of this Federal Register notice.

Separate Rates

    In proceedings involving non-market economy (NME) countries, the 
Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies 
within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should 
be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the 
Department's policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to 
an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an 
exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to 
be entitled to a separate rate.
    To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from 
government control of its export activities to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the Department analyzes each

[[Page 79056]]

entity exporting the subject merchandise under a test arising from the 
Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from 
the People's Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991) (Sparklers), 
as amplified by Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: 
Silicon Carbide from the People's Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 
2,1994) (Silicon Carbide). In accordance with the separate-rates 
criteria, the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME 
cases only if respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure 
and de facto government control over export activities.
    All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate-rate 
status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must 
complete, as appropriate, either a separate-rate application or 
certification, as described below. For these administrative reviews, in 
order to demonstrate separate-rate eligibility, the Department requires 
entities for whom a review was requested, that were assigned a separate 
rate in the most recent segment of this proceeding in which they 
participated, to certify that they continue to meet the criteria for 
obtaining a separate rate. The Separate Rate Certification form will be 
available on the Department's Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/
nme.nme-sep-rate.html on the date of publication of this Federal 
Register notice. In responding to the certification, please follow the 
``Instructions for Filing the Certification'' in the Separate Rate 
Certification. Separate Rate Certifications are due to the Department 
no later than 30 calendar days after publication of this Federal 
Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a 
Certification applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned 
firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and export subject merchandise 
to the United States.
    For entities that have not previously been assigned a separate 
rate, to demonstrate eligibility for such, the Department requires a 
Separate Rate Status Application. The Separate Rate Status Application 
will be available on the Department's Web site at http://
ia.ita.doc.gov/nme.nme-sep-rate.html on the date of publication of this 
Federal Register notice. In responding to the Separate Rate Status 
Application, refer to the instructions contained in the application. 
Separate Rate Status Applications are due to the Department no later 
than 60 calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. 
The deadline and requirement for submitting a Separate Rate Status 
Application applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned 
firms, and foreign sellers that purchase and export subject merchandise 
to the United States.

Initiation of Reviews

    In accordance with section 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are 
initiating administrative reviews of the following antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders and findings. We intend to issue the final 
results of these reviews not later than November 30, 2009.
