Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Trinidad and Tobago: Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 21330-21331 [E9-10629]

Download as PDF 21330 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 87 / Thursday, May 7, 2009 / Notices raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Extension of the Time Limits for the Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires that the Department issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the deadline for the final results to a maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. In this proceeding, the Department requires additional time to complete the final results of this administrative review to issue additional supplemental questionnaires, conduct verifications of several producers in addition to the exporters, generate the reports of the verification findings, and properly consider the issues raised in case briefs from interested parties. Thus, it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the original time limit. Consequently, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final results of this review by 60 days, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final results are now due no later 180 days after the publication date of these preliminary results. Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by these reviews. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review excluding any reported sales that entered during the gap period. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated exporter/importer (or customer)-specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to this review. Where the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to each importer (or customer). See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, we will apply the assessment rate to the entered value of the importers’/ VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:03 May 06, 2009 Jkt 217001 customers’ entries during the POR. See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where we do not have entered values for all U.S. sales, we calculated a perunit assessment rate by aggregating the antidumping duties due for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total quantity sold to that importer (or customer). See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered value. Where an importer (or customer)specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). For the companies receiving a separate rate that were not selected for individual review, we will calculate an assessment rate based on the simple average of the cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for individual review pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. For those companies for which this review has been preliminarily rescinded, the Department intends to assess antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2), if the review is rescinded for these companies. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters listed above, the cash deposit rate will be established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, no cash deposit will be required for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 be the PRC-wide rate of 228.11 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that supplied that nonPRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4). Dated: April 30, 2009. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary, for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUMMARY: On April 27, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of antidumping investigation of polyethylene retail carrier bags (‘‘PRCBs’’) from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (‘‘Vietnam’’). See Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from Indonesia, Taiwan and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations, 74 FR 19049 (April 27, 2009) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). We are amending the case number assigned to the antidumping investigation of PRCBs from Vietnam from A–552–804 to A–552–806. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period. We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable. Specifically, we require additional time to thoroughly consider the responses to the supplemental questionnaires the Department has sent to the respondent. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR § 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations. Since a 120-day extension would result in the deadline for the preliminary results falling on October 31, 2009, which is a Saturday, the new deadline for the preliminary results will be the next business day, November 2, 2009. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, as Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than November 2, 2009. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: May 1, 2009. John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc.

The subject merchandise is defined as non–sealable sacks and bags with handles (including drawstrings), without zippers or integral extruded closures, with or without gussets, with or without printing, of polyethylene film having a thickness no greater than 0.035 inch (0.889 mm) and no less than 0.00035 inch (0.00889 mm), and with no length or width shorter than 6 inches (15.24 cm) or longer than 40 inches (101.6 cm). The depth of the bag may be shorter than 6 inches but not longer than 40 inches (101.6 cm). PRCBs are typically provided without any consumer packaging and free of charge by retail establishments, e.g., grocery, drug, convenience, department, specialty retail, discount stores, and restaurants to their customers to package and carry their purchased PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21331 products. The scope of this investigation excludes (1) polyethylene bags that are not printed with logos or store names and that are closeable with drawstrings made of polyethylene film and (2) polyethylene bags that are packed in consumer packaging with printing that refers to specific end–uses other than packaging and carrying merchandise from retail establishments, e.g., garbage bags, lawn bags, trash–can liners. Imports of merchandise included within the scope of this investigation are currently classifiable under statistical category 3923.21.0085 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). This subheading may also cover products that are outside the scope of these investigations. Furthermore, although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive. New Investigation Case Number The investigation number A–552–804 was inadvertently assigned to the antidumping investigation of PRCBs from Vietnam although it was already used in a prior anticircumvention proceeding on certain tissue paper from the People’s Republic of China. See Certain Tissue Paper From the People’s Republic of China: Affirmative Final Determination of Circumvention of the Antidumping Duty Order, 73 FR 57591 (October 3, 2008). Because case number A–552–804 has already been assigned to a different antidumping proceeding, the Department has assigned a new case number of A–552–806 to the ongoing antidumping investigation of PRCBs from Vietnam. All documents that were already submitted in the ongoing PRCBs from Vietnam antidumping investigation will have their case numbers modified to reflect the new case number (i.e., A–552–806) and no further action is required. All future documents and submissions should refer to the new case number. This notice serves solely to correct the case number as it was listed in the Initiation Notice. The Department’s findings in the Initiation Notice remain unchanged. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Dated: May 1, 2009. John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc. E9–10641 Filed 5–6–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1

and certain alloy steel wire rod from Trinidad and Tobago, covering the 
period October 1, 2007, to September 30, 2008. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 73 FR 70964 
(November 24, 2008). The preliminary results of this review are 
currently due no later than July 3, 2009.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in 
an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is 
requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable. Specifically, we 
require additional time to thoroughly consider the responses to the 
supplemental questionnaires the Department has sent to the respondent.
    Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the 
preliminary results of review by 120 days, in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(h)(2) of the 
Department's regulations. Since a 120-day extension would result in the 
deadline for the preliminary results falling on October 31, 2009, which 
is a Saturday, the new deadline for the preliminary results will be the 
next business day, November 2, 2009. See Notice of Clarification: 
Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for Administrative 
Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, as Amended, 
70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Therefore, the preliminary results are now 
due no later than November 2, 2009. The final results continue to be 
due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.
