FTZ procedures could exempt Brightpoint from customs duty payments on the foreign components used in export production. The company anticipates that some 5 percent of the plant’s shipments will be exported. On its domestic sales, Brightpoint would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to cell phone sets (duty–free) for the foreign inputs noted above. FTZ designation would further allow Brightpoint to realize logistical benefits through the use of weekly customs entry procedures. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. The request indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the plant’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Elizabeth Whiteman of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is September 28, 2009. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to October 13, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with June anniversary dates. Please note that in the initiation notice that published on June 24, 2009 (74 FR 30052) the Department listed incorrect case numbers for the antidumping duty orders on Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom. The correct case numbers for these cases are as follows: France (A–427–801), Germany (A–428–801), Italy (A–475– 801), Japan (A–588–804), and the United Kingdom (A–412–801). 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, PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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’’).

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 E:\FR\FM\29JYN1.SGM 29JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 144 / Wednesday, July 29, 2009 / Notices 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 website at http://www.trade.gov/ia on the date of publication of this Federal Register. 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 of publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies 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 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 website 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 Status Application, refer to the instructions contained in the application. Separate Rate Status 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 Status Application applies equally to NME– owned firms, wholly foreign–owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States. For exporters and producers who submit a separate–rate status application or certification and subsequently are selected as mandatory respondents, these exporters and producers will no longer be eligible for separate–rate status UNLESS they respond to all parts of the questionnaire as mandatory respondents. Initiation of Reviews In accordance with section 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating administrative reviews of the following antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings.

Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') has received 
requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders and findings with June anniversary dates. In 
accordance with the Department's regulations, we are initiating those 
administrative reviews. The Department also received a request to defer 
the initiation of an administrative review for one antidumping duty 
order.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 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), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders and findings with June anniversary dates. 
Please note that in the initiation notice that published on June 24, 
2009 (74 FR 30052) the Department listed incorrect case numbers for the 
antidumping duty orders on Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, 
Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom. The correct case numbers 
for these cases are as follows: France (A-427-801), Germany (A-428-
801), Italy (A-475-801), Japan (A-588-804), and the United Kingdom (A-
412-801).

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

[[Page 37691]]

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 website at http://www.trade.gov/ia on the 
date of publication of this Federal Register. 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 
of publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and 
requirement for submitting a Certification applies 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 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 website 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 Status Application, refer to the instructions 
contained in the application. Separate Rate Status 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 Status 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 proceedings (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 Application.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For exporters and producers who submit a separate-rate status 
application or certification and subsequently are selected as mandatory 
respondents, these exporters and producers will no longer be eligible 
for separate-rate status unless they respond to all parts of the 
questionnaire as mandatory respondents.

review), the Secretary, if requested by a domestic interested party 
within 30 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation 
of the review, will determine, consistent with FAG Italia v.United 
States, 291 F.3d 806 (Fed. Cir. 2002), as appropriate, whether 
antidumping duties have been absorbed by an exporter or producer 
subject to the review if the subject merchandise is sold in the United 
States through an importer that is affiliated with such exporter or 
producer. The request must include the name(s) of the exporter or 
producer for which the inquiry is requested.
    Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. On 
January 22, 2008, the Department published Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO 
Procedures, 73 FR 3634 (January 22, 2008). Those procedures apply to 
administrative reviews included in this notice of initiation. Parties 
wishing to participate in any of these administrative reviews should 
ensure that they meet the requirements of these procedures (e.g., the 
filing of separate letters of appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 
351.103(d)).

751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1675(a)), and 
19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).
