DATES: Effective Date: January 27, 2009. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has conducted a changed circumstances review on certain orange juice (OJ) from Brazil to determine whether the antidumping duty order should be revoked with respect to imports of ultra low pulp orange juice (ULPOJ). On October 10, 2008, the Department published the preliminary results of its changed circumstances review, in which we found that there was sufficient interest on the part of the domestic industry to justify maintaining the order with respect to ULPOJ. See Certain Orange Juice from Brazil: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review and Intent Not to Revoke, In Part, 73 FR 60241 (Oct. 10, 2008) (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have not changed the final results from those presented in the Preliminary Results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 9, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on OJ from Brazil.

On April 29, 2008, at the request of Tropicana Products, Inc. (Tropicana), a domestic producer of orange juice, the Department initiated a changed circumstances review of the order to consider partially revoking the order with respect to ULPOJ, pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216(b) and 351.222(g)(1)(i). See Certain Orange Juice From Brazil: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 73 FR 23182 (Apr. 29, 2008). On October 10, 2008, the Department published the preliminary results of this changed circumstances review. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR 60241. In the Preliminary Results, we found that there was sufficient interest on the part of the domestic OJ industry to justify maintaining the order with respect to ULPOJ. We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. In November 2008, we received case and rebuttal briefs from Tropicana and the petitioners in this case (i.e., Florida Citrus Mutual, A. Duda & Sons, Inc. (doing business as Citrus Belle), and Citrus World, Inc.).1 Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have not changed the final results from those presented in the Preliminary Results. Scope of the Order The scope of this order includes certain orange juice for transport and/or further manufacturing, produced in two different forms: (1) Frozen orange juice in a highly concentrated form, sometimes referred to as frozen concentrated orange juice for manufacture (FCOJM); and (2) pasteurized single-strength orange juice which has not been concentrated, referred to as not-from-concentrate (NFC). At the time of the filing of the petition, there was an existing antidumping duty order on frozen concentrated orange juice (FCOJ) from Brazil. See Antidumping Duty Order; Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice from Brazil, 52 FR 16426 (May 5, 1987). Therefore, the scope of this order with regard to FCOJM covers only FCOJM produced and/or exported by those companies which were excluded or revoked from the pre-existing antidumping order on FCOJ from Brazil as of December 27, 2004. Those 1 These entities are opposing revocation of the order in part in this changed circumstances review; however, another petitioner, Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation, has not joined these entities in opposing Tropicana’s request.

Comercio, Industria and Agricutura; and Montecitrus Trading S.A. Excluded from the scope of the order are reconstituted orange juice and frozen concentrated orange juice for retail (FCOJR). Reconstituted orange juice is produced through further manufacture of FCOJM, by adding water, oils and essences to the orange juice concentrate. FCOJR is concentrated orange juice, typically at 42 Brix, in a frozen state, packed in retail-sized containers ready for sale to consumers. FCOJR, a finished consumer product, is produced through further manufacture of FCOJM, a bulk manufacturer’s product. The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under subheadings 2009.11.00, 2009.12.25, 2009.12.45, and 2009.19.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). These HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and for customs purposes only and are not dispositive. Rather, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Scope of Changed Circumstances Review The product subject to this changed circumstances review is ULPOJ, which is concentrated orange juice with a pulp content of two percent or less by weight/volume on an 11.8 degree brix equivalent base. This product is a form of FCOJM and is commonly used in the manufacture of soft drink concentrates.

As a result, we determine that producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product have not expressed a lack of interest in maintaining the order with respect to ULPOJ. Thus, we find that changed circumstances sufficient to warrant revocation in part of the antidumping duty order on OJ from Brazil do not exist. The current requirements for the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties on the subject merchandise will remain in effect until further notice.

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 terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 9, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register 
an antidumping duty order on OJ from Brazil. See Antidumping Duty 
Order:

[[Page 4734]]

Certain Orange Juice From Brazil, 72 FR 12183 (Mar. 9, 2006).
    On April 29, 2008, at the request of Tropicana Products, Inc. 
(Tropicana), a domestic producer of orange juice, the Department 
initiated a changed circumstances review of the order to consider 
partially revoking the order with respect to ULPOJ, pursuant to section 
751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 
351.216(b) and 351.222(g)(1)(i). See Certain Orange Juice From Brazil: 
Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 73 FR 
23182 (Apr. 29, 2008). On October 10, 2008, the Department published 
the preliminary results of this changed circumstances review. See 
Preliminary Results, 73 FR 60241. In the Preliminary Results, we found 
that there was sufficient interest on the part of the domestic OJ 
industry to justify maintaining the order with respect to ULPOJ.
    We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. 
In November 2008, we received case and rebuttal briefs from Tropicana 
and the petitioners in this case (i.e., Florida Citrus Mutual, A. Duda 
& Sons, Inc. (doing business as Citrus Belle), and Citrus World, 
Inc.).\1\ Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have not 
changed the final results from those presented in the Preliminary 
Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ These entities are opposing revocation of the order in part 
in this changed circumstances review; however, another petitioner, 
Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation, has not joined these 
entities in opposing Tropicana's request.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order includes certain orange juice for transport 
and/or further manufacturing, produced in two different forms: (1) 
Frozen orange juice in a highly concentrated form, sometimes referred 
to as frozen concentrated orange juice for manufacture (FCOJM); and (2) 
pasteurized single-strength orange juice which has not been 
concentrated, referred to as not-from-concentrate (NFC). At the time of 
the filing of the petition, there was an existing antidumping duty 
order on frozen concentrated orange juice (FCOJ) from Brazil. See 
Antidumping Duty Order; Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice from Brazil, 
52 FR 16426 (May 5, 1987). Therefore, the scope of this order with 
regard to FCOJM covers only FCOJM produced and/or exported by those 
companies which were excluded or revoked from the pre-existing 
antidumping order on FCOJ from Brazil as of December 27, 2004. Those 
companies are Cargill Citrus Limitada; Coinbra-Frutesp S.A.; 
Sucocitrico Cutrale, S.A.; Fischer S.A. Comercio, Industria and 
Agricutura; and Montecitrus Trading S.A.
    Excluded from the scope of the order are reconstituted orange juice 
and frozen concentrated orange juice for retail (FCOJR). Reconstituted 
orange juice is produced through further manufacture of FCOJM, by 
adding water, oils and essences to the orange juice concentrate. FCOJR 
is concentrated orange juice, typically at 42 Brix, in a frozen state, 
packed in retail-sized containers ready for sale to consumers. FCOJR, a 
finished consumer product, is produced through further manufacture of 
FCOJM, a bulk manufacturer's product.
    The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under subheadings 
2009.11.00, 2009.12.25, 2009.12.45, and 2009.19.00 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). These HTSUS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and for customs purposes only and are not 
dispositive. Rather, the written description of the scope of the order 
is dispositive.

Scope of Changed Circumstances Review

    The product subject to this changed circumstances review is ULPOJ, 
which is concentrated orange juice with a pulp content of two percent 
or less by weight/volume on an 11.8 degree brix equivalent base. This 
product is a form of FCOJM and is commonly used in the manufacture of 
soft drink concentrates.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this changed circumstances review, and to which we have responded, are 
listed in the Appendix to this notice and addressed in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum (Decision Memo), which is adopted by this notice. 
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 Central Records Unit, room 1117, of the main 
Department Building.
    In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memo can be 
accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/ frn/. The paper 
copy and electronic version of the Decision Memo are identical in 
content.

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    More than 15 percent of the domestic industry has expressed 
opposition to excluding ULPOJ from the antidumping duty order on OJ 
from Brazil. As a result, we determine that producers accounting for 
substantially all of the production of the domestic like product have 
not expressed a lack of interest in maintaining the order with respect 
to ULPOJ. Thus, we find that changed circumstances sufficient to 
warrant revocation in part of the antidumping duty order on OJ from 
Brazil do not exist. The current requirements for the cash deposit of 
estimated antidumping duties on the subject merchandise will remain in 
effect until further notice.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under

the return/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.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216.
