SUMMARY: In response to requests from Aqualon Company, a division of Hercules Inc., (the petitioner) and respondents CP Kelco OY and CP Kelco U.S., Inc. (collectively, CP Kelco), the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on purified carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) from Finland. The review covers exports of the subject merchandise to the United States produced by CP Kelco. The period of review (POR) is July 1, 2007, through June 30, 2008. We preliminarily find that CP Kelco made sales at less than normal value (NV) during the POR. 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 based on differences between the export price (EP) or constructed export price (CEP) and NV. EFFECTIVE DATE: April 9, 2009 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tyler Weinhold or Robert James, AD/ CVD Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–1121 or (202) 482– 0649, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department published the antidumping duty order on CMC from Finland on July 11, 2005. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from Finland, Mexico, the Netherlands, and Sweden, 70 FR 39734 (July 11, 2005). On July 11, 2008, the Department published the notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of CMC from Finland for the period July 1, 2007, through June 30, 2008. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Administrative Review, 73 FR 39948 (July 11, 2008). On July 11, 2008, CP Kelco requested an administrative review for July 1, 2007, through June 30, 2008. On July 14, 2008, the petitioner requested a review of CP Kelco for the same period. On August 26, 2008, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of this antidumping duty administrative review. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 73 FR 50308 (August 26, 2008). On October 3, 2008, the Department issued its standard antidumping questionnaire (the antidumping questionnaire) to CP Kelco. CP Kelco submitted its response to section A of the Department’s antidumping questionnaire on September 30, 2008 (CP Kelco’s Section A Response). CP Kelco submitted its response to sections B and C of the antidumping questionnaire on October 20, 2008 (CP Kelco’s Sections B and C Response). Because the Department disregarded sales at prices below the cost of production in the most recently completed administrative review as of the initiation of the instant review, we are conducting a sales-at-below-cost investigation in this review. See Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from Finland; Notice of Preliminary Determination of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 44106 (August 7, 2007) (unchanged in Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from Finland, Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 70568 (December 12, 2007). Accordingly, CP Kelco submitted its response to section D of the antidumping questionnaire on October 31, 2008 (CP Kelco’s Section D Response). On November 10, 2008, the Department issued a supplemental questionnaire to CP Kelco regarding its responses to sections A, B, and C of the antidumping questionnaire. CP Kelco submitted its response to the Department’s supplemental questionnaire on December 2, 2008 (CP Kelco’s Supplemental Sections A, B, and C Response). On January 5, 2009, the Department issued a supplemental questionnaire to CP Kelco regarding its responses to section D of the antidumping questionnaire. CP Kelco submitted its response to the Department’s supplemental questionnaire on January 22, 2009 (CP Kelco’s Supplemental Section D Response). On January 27, 2009, CP Kelco submitted data and electronic versions of exhibits from CP E:\FR\FM\09APN1.SGM 09APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) is responsible for the 
compilation of the U.S. international transactions accounts (ITAs), 
which it publishes quarterly in news releases, on its Web site, and in 
its monthly journal, the Survey of Current Business. These accounts 
provide a statistical summary of all U.S. international transactions 
and, as such, are one of the major statistical products of BEA. They 
are used extensively by both government and private organizations for 
national and international economic policy formulation and for 
analytical purposes. The information collected in this survey is used 
to develop the ``transportation'' portion of the ITAs. Potential 
respondents are U.S. agents of foreign air carriers operating in the 
United States. The information is collected on a quarterly basis from 
foreign air carriers whose total annual covered revenues or total 
annual covered expenses incurred in the United States are, or are 
expected to be, $5,000,000 or more. Foreign air carriers whose total 
annual covered revenues and total annual covered expenses are, or are 
expected to be, each below $5,000,000 are exempt from reporting.
    Without this information, an integral component of the ITAs would 
be omitted. No other government agency
