Download as PDF jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 34 / Monday, February 23, 2009 / Notices 8419.89, 8471.49, 8471.50, 8479.89, 8479.90, 9027.30, 9027.50, 9027.90, duty rates range from 2.5% to 4.2%) under zone procedures. Abbott is also requesting to include within its manufacturing scope a broad range of inputs and pharmaceutical final products that it may produce under FTZ procedures in the future. (New major activity in these inputs/products would require review by the FTZ Board.) The duty rates for these inputs and final products range from duty-free to 20 percent. The specific input and product categories are listed in the application, which is available in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s Web site (see below). Zone procedures could exempt Abbott from customs duty payments on foreign materials used in production for export (some 60 percent of shipments). On domestic shipments, the company would be able to defer customs duty payments on foreign materials, and to choose the duty rate that applies to the finished products (duty-free to 4.2%) instead of the rates otherwise applicable to the foreign input materials (duty-free to 10.7%). Abbott also expects to realize additional savings through the use of weekly entry procedures. The application indicates that the savings from zone procedures would help improve the plant’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Kathleen Boyce of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board. Public comment on the application is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address listed below. The closing period for their receipt is April 24, 2009. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period (to May 11, 2009). A copy of the application will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 2111, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s Web site, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ ftz.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department received a timely request from Ajubesteel, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.214(c), for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded non–alloy steel pipe from the Republic of Korea. The Department found that Ajubesteel’s request for review met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated an antidumping duty new shipper review. See Circular Welded Non–Alloy Steel Pipe from the Republic of Korea: Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Review, 73 FR 80365 (December 31, 2008). On January 6, 2009, the Department issued a questionnaire to Ajubesteel. On January 13, 2009, Ajubesteel withdrew its request for a new shipper review.

However, Ajubesteel’s shipments are subject to an administrative review of the order on circular welded non–alloy steel pipe from the Republic of Korea, covering the same period. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 79055 (December 24, 2008). Because the sale(s) from this new shipper review also fall within the period of review of the administrative review, the Department will not issue assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at this time. Upon the completion of the November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008, administrative review, the Department will issue assessment instructions to CBP as appropriate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On June 5, 1991, the Department of Commerce (Department) published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and strip (PET film) from the Republic of Korea (‘‘Korea’’). See Antidumping Duty Order and Amendment to Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip from the Republic of Korea, 56 FR 25669 (June 5, 1991). The Department received timely requests from Kolon Industries Inc. (Kolon) and from DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc., and Toray Plastics America Inc. (collectively, the petitioners), in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on PET film from Korea covering Kolon’s sales for the period October 2, 2007, through May 31, 2008. On July 30, 2008, the Department initiated an administrative review with respect to Kolon. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 73 FR 44220 (July 30, 2008). The deadline for completion of the preliminary results in this administrative review is currently March 2, 2009. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) require the Department to issue the preliminary PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order or suspension agreement for which the administrative review was requested, and the final results of the review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) allow the Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 days and the 120-day period to 180 days. Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), we determine that it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the statutory time limit of 245 days. The Department requires additional time to analyze Kolon’s questionnaire responses, and issue supplemental questionnaires. In particular, there are complex issues concerning Kolon’s reported cost of production and U.S. sales that the Department requires additional time to analyze. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of these preliminary results by 120 days. Therefore, the new deadline for completion of this review is June 30, 2009. The final results, in turn, will be due 120 days after the date of issuance of the preliminary results, unless extended. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: February 17, 2009. John M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department received a timely request from Ajubesteel, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), and 19 CFR 351.214(c), for a new shipper review 
of the antidumping duty order on circular welded non-alloy steel pipe 
from the Republic of Korea. The Department found that Ajubesteel's 
request for review met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 
19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated an antidumping duty new shipper review. 
See Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe from the Republic of Korea: 
Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Review, 73 FR 80365 
(December 31, 2008).
    On January 6, 2009, the Department issued a questionnaire to 
Ajubesteel. On January 13, 2009, Ajubesteel withdrew its request for a 
new shipper review.

Rescission of New Shipper Review

    Section 351.214(f)(1) of the Department's regulations provides that 
the Department may rescind a new shipper review if the party that 
requested the review withdraws its request for review within 60 days of

date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested 
review. Ajubesteel withdrew its request for a review on January 13, 
2009, which is within the 60-day deadline. Therefore, the Department is 
rescinding this new shipper review of Ajubesteel.

Notification

    As the Department is rescinding this antidumping duty new shipper 
review, normally, the all-others rate in effect at the time of entry, 
4.8 percent ad valorem, would be assessed on all exports of circular 
welded non-alloy steel pipe from the Republic of Korea by Ajubesteel 
entered, or withdrawn, from warehouse for consumption during the period 
of review (November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008). However, 
Ajubesteel's shipments are subject to an administrative review of the 
order on circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from the Republic of 
Korea, covering the same period. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation 
in Part, 73 FR 79055 (December 24, 2008). Because the sale(s) from this 
new shipper review also fall within the period of review of the 
administrative review, the Department will not issue assessment 
instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at this time. 
Upon the completion of the November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008, 
administrative review, the Department will issue assessment 
instructions to CBP as appropriate.
    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``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/destruction of APO material or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to 
sanctions.
    This new shipper rescission and notice are published in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: February 12, 2009.
