SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S Background On August 21, 2008, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(c), the Department received a NSR request from Zhejiang Iceman. On August 22, 2008, we received a NSR request from Zhangzhou Gangchang, also pursuant to 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act the 19 CFR 351.214(c). The Department determined that both of these requests had not been properly filed, and therefore returned them on August 26, 2008. On August 29, 2008, both companies resubmitted their requests. They both certified that they are the producers and exporters of the subject merchandise upon which the requests were based. On October 2, 2008, the Department initiated antidumping duty NSRs on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC covering the two companies. See Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 73 FR 57333 (October 2, 2008) (Initiation Notice). On October 8, 2008, the Department issued its standard antidumping questionnaire to both Zhejiang Iceman and Zhangzhou Gangchang. Between November 2008 and February 2009, Zhejiang Iceman and Zhangzhou Gangchang submitted responses to the original sections A, C, and D questionnaires and supplemental sections A, C, and D questionnaires. On November 3, 2008, the Department sent interested parties a letter requesting comments on surrogate country selection and information pertaining to valuing factors of production (FOP). On February 17, 2009, Zhejiang Iceman and Zhangzhou Gangchang submitted surrogate value data. No other party submitted surrogate country or surrogate value data. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration [A–570–851] Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. EFFECTIVE DATE: April 1, 2009. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is currently conducting new shipper reviews (NSRs) of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China (PRC)1 covering the period of review February 1, 2008, through July 31, 2008. We preliminarily determine that the sales made by Zhangzhou Gangchang Canned Foods Co., Ltd., Fujian (Zhangzhou Gangchang)2 and by Zhejiang Iceman Group Co., Ltd. (Zhejiang Iceman), were not made below normal value (NV). If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review (POR) for any importer–specific assessment rates that are above de minimis.

See Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 73 FR 57333 (October 2, 2008). However, Zhangzhou Gangchang subsequently stated that its name is actually Zhangzhou Gangchang Canned Foods Co., Ltd., Fujian. See Zhangzhou Gangchang’s January 16, 2009, submission at 8. Record evidence supports Zhangzhou Gangchang’s contention. See Zhangzhou Gangchang’s November 6, 2008, submission at Exhibit A-4. Therefore in this and subsequent notices we refer to Zhangzhou Gangchang by its correct name.

finding or an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension 
agreement for which it is requesting a review, and the requesting party

Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer 
if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which 
were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of 
origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must
