We invited interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. Based on our analysis of the comments received and the results of verification, we have made changes to the margin calculation. The final weighted–average dumping margin for the reviewed firm is listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ EFFECTIVE DATE: March 31, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: tjames on PRODPC61 with NOTICES Background On September 22, 2008, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the preliminary results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on granular polytetrafluoroethylene (‘‘PTFE’’) resin from Italy. See Amended Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin From Italy, 73 FR 54557 (September 22, 2008) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). From October 13 through October 17, 2008, we verified Solvay Solexis S.p.A.’s sales response. We issued a report for this verification on December 11, 2008. See Memorandum from Shane VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:35 Mar 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 Subler and Alicia Winston, International Trade Compliance Analysts, to Susan H. Kuhbach, Director, Office 1, ‘‘Verification of the Sales Response of Solvay Solexis S.p.A. in the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin from Italy,’’ (December 11, 2008) (‘‘Home Market Verification Report’’). From November 13 through November 19, 2008, we verified Solvay Solexis S.p.A.’s cost response. We issued a report for this verification on January 6, 2009. See Memorandum from Ernest Z. Gziryan, Senior Accountant, to Neal M. Halper, Director, Office of Accounting, ‘‘Verification of the Cost of Production and Constructed Value Data Submitted by Solvay Solexis S.p.A. in the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene (‘‘PTFE’’) Resin from Italy,’’ (January 6, 2009) (‘‘Cost Verification Report’’). On October 27 and 28, 2008, we verified Solvay Solexis, Incorporated’s constructed export price (‘‘CEP’’) sales response. See Memorandum from Shane Subler and Alicia Winston, International Trade Compliance Analysts, to Susan H. Kuhbach, Director, Office 1, ‘‘Verification of the Sales Response of Solvay Solexis, Inc. in the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin from Italy,’’ (January 9, 2009) (‘‘CEP Verification Report’’). In this notice, we refer to the three reports collectively as the ‘‘Verification Reports.’’ We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On January 26, 2009, we received case briefs from E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Company (‘‘the petitioner’’) and Solvay Solexis, Inc. and Solvay Solexis S.p.A. (collectively, ‘‘Solvay’’). On January 29, 2009, we received rebuttal briefs from the petitioner and Solvay. On January 26, 2009, Solvay requested a public hearing; the hearing was held at the Department of Commerce on February 2, 2009. A record of the February 2, 2009, hearing is available in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’), Room 1117 of the main Department building. On January 9, 2009, we extended the time limit for the final results of this administrative review, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). See Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin From Italy: Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 885 (January 9, 2009). PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14519 Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is granular PTFE resin, filled or unfilled. The order also covers PTFE wet raw polymer exported from Italy to the United States. See Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin From Italy; Final Affirmative Determination of Circumvention of Antidumping Duty Order, 58 FR 26100 (April 30, 1993). The order excludes PTFE dispersions in water and fine powders. During the period covered by this review, such merchandise was classified under item number 3904.61.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). We are providing this HTSUS number for convenience and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) purposes only. The written description of the scope remains dispositive. Cost of Production Consistent with the Preliminary Results, we disregarded home–market sales by Solvay that failed the cost–ofproduction test. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this administrative review are addressed in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’ (‘‘Decision Memorandum’’) from John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated March 23, 2009, 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 memorandum, which is on file in the CRU, Room 1117 of the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Import Administration website at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/. The paper copy and the electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results First, we revised the calculations from the Preliminary Results to account for minor corrections that Solvay submitted during the home market and CEP sales verifications. We revised the following fields in Solvay’s home market sales database: packing and indirect selling expenses. We revised the following fields in Solvay’s U.S. market sales E:\FR\FM\31MRN1.SGM 31MRN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Correction

    On March 19, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published a notice of countervailing duty order on circular welded 
austenitic stainless pressure pipe from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC''). See Circular Welded Austenitic Stainless Pressure Pipe from 
the People's Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 74 FR 11712 
(March 19, 2009) (``CVD Order''). Subsequent to the publication of the 
CVD Order in the Federal Register, we identified an inadvertent error.
    The notice states that on March 11, 2009, the United States 
International Trade Commission (ITC) notified the Department of its 
final affirmative determination of material injury. This is a 
typographical error. The Department received the ITC's notification of 
its final affirmative determination of material injury on March 12, 
2009.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 777(i) and 
706(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended.
