We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of this initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 20 days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within 10 calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. Separate Rates In proceedings involving non-market economy (NME) countries, the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the Department’s policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25711 exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a separate rate. To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from government control of its export activities to be entitled to a separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People’s Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991), as amplified by Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from the People’s Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994). In accordance with the separate-rates criteria, the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME cases only if respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto government control over export activities. All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate-rate status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must complete, as appropriate, either a separate-rate application or certification, as described below. For these administrative reviews, in order to demonstrate separate-rate eligibility, the Department requires entities for whom a review was requested, that were assigned a separate rate in the most recent segment of this proceeding in which they participated, to certify that they continue to meet the criteria for obtaining a separate rate. The Separate Rate Certification form will be available on the Department’s Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/nme/nme-seprate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice.

Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce has received requests to conduct 
administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty 
orders and findings with April anniversary dates. In accordance with 
the Department's regulations, we are initiating those administrative 
reviews.

DATES: Effective Date: May 29, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sheila E. Forbes, Office of AD/CVD 
Operations, Customs Unit, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482-
4697.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(b)(2002), for administrative reviews of various antidumping 
and countervailing duty orders and findings with April anniversary 
dates.

Notice of No Sales

    Under 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind a review 
where there are no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise 
during the respective period of review (POR) listed below. If a 
producer or exporter named in this initiation notice had no exports, 
sales, or entries during the POR, it should notify the Department 
within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. 
The Department will consider rescinding the review only if the producer 
or exporter, as appropriate, submits a properly filed and timely 
statement certifying that it had no exports, sales, or entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR. All submissions must be made in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.303 and are subject to verification in 
accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act). Six copies of the submission should be submitted to the 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. Further, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy of each request must be served on 
every party on the Department's service list.

Respondent Selection

    In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination for administrative reviews, the Department 
intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to 
release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all 
parties having an APO within five days of publication of this 
initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent 
selection within 20 days of publication of this Federal Register 
notice. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and 
respondent selection within 10 calendar days of publication of this 
Federal Register notice.

Separate Rates

    In proceedings involving non-market economy (NME) countries, the 
Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies 
within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should 
be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the 
Department's policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to 
an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an 
exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to 
be entitled to a separate rate.
    To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from 
government control of its export activities to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the 
subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination 
of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People's Republic 
of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991), as amplified by Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from 
the People's Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994). In 
accordance with the separate-rates criteria, the Department assigns 
separate rates to companies in NME cases only if respondents can 
demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto government control 
over export activities.
    All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate-rate 
status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must 
complete, as appropriate, either a separate-rate application or 
certification, as described below. For these administrative reviews, in 
order to demonstrate separate-rate eligibility, the Department requires 
entities for whom a review was requested, that were assigned a separate 
rate in the most recent segment of this proceeding in which they 
participated, to certify that they continue to meet the criteria for 
obtaining a separate rate. The Separate Rate Certification form will be 
available on the Department's Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/nme/nme-sep-rate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register 
notice. In responding to the certification, please follow the 
``Instructions for Filing the Certification'' in the Separate Rate 
Certification. Separate Rate Certifications are due to the Department 
no later than 30 calendar days after publication of this Federal 
Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a 
Certification apply equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned 
firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and export subject merchandise 
to the United States.
    Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a 
completed segment of the proceeding \1\ should timely file a

[[Page 25712]]

Separate Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate 
rate in this proceeding. In addition, companies that received a 
separate rate in a completed segment of the proceeding that have 
subsequently made changes, including, but not limited to, changes to 
corporate structure, acquisitions of new companies or facilities, or 
changes to their official company name,\2\ should timely file a 
Separate Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate 
rate in this proceeding. The Separate Rate Application will be 
available on the Department's Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/nme/nme-sep-rate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register 
notice. In responding to the Separate Rate Application, refer to the 
instructions contained in the application. Separate Rate Applications 
are due to the Department no later than 60 calendar days of publication 
of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for 
submitting a Separate Rate Application applies equally to NME-owned 
firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase 
and export subject merchandise to the United States.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Such entities include entities that have not participated in 
the proceeding, entities that were preliminarily granted a separate 
rate in any currently incomplete segment of the proceeding (e.g., an 
ongoing administrative review, new shipper review, etc.) and 
entities that lost their separate rate in the most recently complete 
segment of the proceeding in which they participated.
    \2\ Only changes to the official company name, rather than trade 
names, need to be addressed via a Separate Rate Application. 
Information regarding new trade names may be submitted via a 
Separate Rate Certification.
