SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 24, 1996, the Department published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy.2 On May 22, 2009, Pasta Lensi S.r.L. (‘‘Pasta Lensi’’) requested that the Department initiate a changed circumstances review and revoke, in part, the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy with respect to gluten–free pasta based on a lack of interest in maintaining the order by petitioners. See May 22, 2009, letter from Pasta Lensi to the Secretary of Commerce. On June 1, 2009, petitioners expressed a lack of interest in maintaining the order with respect to gluten–free pasta.3 On July 2, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation and preliminary results and intent to revoke, in part, a changed circumstances review of the antidumping order.4 We received no comments. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Scope of Review Imports covered by this review are shipments of certain non–egg dry pasta in packages of five pounds (2.27 kilograms) or less, whether or not enriched or fortified or containing milk or other optional ingredients such as chopped vegetables, vegetable purees, milk, gluten, diastases, vitamins, coloring and flavorings, and up to two percent egg white. The pasta covered by this scope is typically sold in the retail market, in fiberboard or cardboard cartons, or polyethylene or 2 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Pasta from Italy, 61 FR 38547 (July 24, 1996). 3 See Memo from Christopher Hargett, Case Analyst, AD/CVD Operations 3, to Melissa Skinner, Office Director, AD/CVD Operations 3 entitled ‘‘Phone Conversation with Counsel for Petitioners,’’ dated June 2, 2009. 4 See Preliminary Results, 74 FR 31696 (July 2, 2009).

Excluded from the scope of this review are refrigerated, frozen, or canned pastas, as well as all forms of egg pasta, with the exception of non–egg dry pasta containing up to two percent egg white. As a result of this review, also excluded from the scope of this order is gluten–free pasta. The merchandise subject to review is currently classifiable under item 1902.19.20 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive. Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.216, the Department will conduct a changed circumstances review upon receipt of information concerning, or a request from an interested party for review of, an antidumping duty order which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the order. In its May 22, 2009, submission Pasta Lensi stated that petitioners have no interest in the antidumping duty order with respect to gluten–free pasta. Further, the petitioners expressed a lack of interest in maintain the antidumping duty order with respect to gluten–free pasta.5 No party submitted any evidence to the contrary. Therefore, In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(i), we determine that the petitioners have no interest in the antidumping duty order with respect to gluten–free pasta. Pasta Lensi requested that the Department retroactively revoke the order and cited to Wooden Bedroom Furniture for support.6 Consistent with Department practice, we have determined to revoke the order, in part, retroactive to July 1, 2008, (the date following the last day of the most recently completed administrative review) for unliquidated entries in light of Pasta Lensi’s request and the fact that entries after this date are not subject to a final determination by the Department. Accordingly, the 5 See memorandum from Christopher Hargett, Case Analyst, to Melissa Skinner, Office Director, entitled ‘‘Phone Conversation with Counsel for Petitioners,’’ dated June 2, 2009. 6 See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review and Determination to Revoke Order in Part, 74 FR 8506 (February 25, 2009)(‘‘Wooden Bedroom Furniture’’).

(‘‘Baoding Mantong’’), submitted additional surrogate value (‘‘SV’’) information for the Department to consider for these final results. On May 8, 2009, GSC submitted comments on Baoding Mantong’s April 28, 2009, SV submission and requested a hearing. On May 8, 2009, GSC and Baoding Mantong timely submitted case briefs. On May 13, 2009, GSC and Baoding Mantong timely submitted rebuttal briefs. On May 19, 2009, GSC withdrew its request for hearing. At the request of both parties, the Department met separately with counsel for Baoding Mantong and counsel for GSC on May 28, 2009.

Mendoza, Program Manager, Office 7, Regarding the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of the Order on Glycine from the People’s Republic of China: Meeting with Counsel for Domestic Interested Party, dated May 29, 2009; and Meeting with Counsel for Respondent, dated May 29, 2009. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is glycine, which is a free–flowing crystalline material, like salt or sugar. Glycine is produced at varying levels of purity and is used as a sweetener/taste enhancer, a buffering agent, reabsorbable amino acid, chemical intermediate, and a metal complexing agent. This review covers glycine of all purity levels. Glycine is currently classified under subheading 2922.49.4020 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’).

Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary, dated August 6, 2009 (‘‘I&D Memo’’), which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues raised, all of which are addressed in the I&D Memo, is attached to this notice as Appendix I. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in the briefs and rebuttal briefs and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, room 1117 of the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the I&D Memo can be accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the I&D Memo are identical in content. Separate Rates Baoding Mantong requested a separate, company–specific antidumping duty rate. In the Preliminary Results, we found that Baoding Mantong met the criteria for the application of a separate antidumping duty rate. Preliminary Results, 74 FR at 15933. Therefore, the Department has applied a rate to Baoding Mantong separate from the rate established for the PRC–wide entity. Also in the Preliminary Results, the Department found that Nantong Dongchang Chemical Industry Corporation (‘‘Nantong Dongchang’’) did not participate in the administrative review and, thus, did not demonstrate its entitlement to a separate rate. Id. at 15933–34. Accordingly, for these final results, Nantong Dongchang does not qualify for separate rate status, but rather is appropriately considered to be part of the PRC–wide entity which is assigned a rate of 155.89 percent based on facts otherwise available with an adverse inference (‘‘AFA’’). Id. The Department did not receive comments on this issue prior to these final results. Use of Facts Otherwise Available and the PRC–Wide Rate As noted above, the Department found that Nantong Dongchang did not establish its eligibility for separate rate PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 status, and thus is deemed to be part of the PRC–wide entity. Also, in the Preliminary Results, the Department noted that Nantong Dongchang did not participate in the administrative review, and did not respond to any portions of the Department’s questionnaires. As the Department found that the PRC–wide entity, which includes Nantong Dongchang, failed to cooperate to the best of its ability in responding to the Department’s requests for information and thereby impeded the Department’s proceeding, the Department assigned the PRC–wide entity a rate based on AFA pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A), (B), and (C) and section 776(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). See Preliminary Results, 74 FR at 15934. The Department did not receive any comments regarding its preliminary application of AFA to the PRC–wide entity. See Preliminary Results, 74 FR at 15933–35. Therefore, for these final results, the Department has not altered its analysis or decision to apply total AFA to the PRC–wide entity. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of information on the record of this review, and comments received from the interested parties, we have made changes to the margin calculations for Baoding Mantong. In particular, we have made modifications to our selection of certain SVs used in the Preliminary Results. The values that were modified for these final results are those for formaldehyde, steam coal, and chlorine. For further details, see the accompanying I&D Memo at Comments 3, 5, and 6.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The following events have occurred subsequent to the publication of 
the Preliminary Results. On April 28, 2009, Geo Specialty Chemicals 
Inc. (``GSC''), a domestic interested party, and respondent, Baoding 
Mantong Fine Chemistry Co., Ltd. (``Baoding Mantong''), submitted 
additional surrogate value (``SV'') information for the Department to 
consider for these final results. On May 8, 2009, GSC submitted 
comments on Baoding Mantong's April 28, 2009, SV submission and 
requested a hearing. On May 8, 2009, GSC and Baoding Mantong timely 
submitted case briefs. On May 13, 2009, GSC and Baoding Mantong timely 
submitted rebuttal briefs. On May 19, 2009, GSC withdrew its request 
for hearing. At the request of both parties, the Department met 
separately with counsel for Baoding Mantong and counsel for GSC on May 
28, 2009. See Memoranda to the File from Dena Crossland, Analyst, 
through Angelica L. Mendoza, Program Manager, Office 7, Regarding the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of the Order on Glycine from the 
People's Republic of China: Meeting with Counsel for Domestic 
Interested Party, dated May 29, 2009; and Meeting with Counsel for 
Respondent, dated May 29, 2009.

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is glycine, which is a free-
flowing crystalline material, like salt or sugar. Glycine is produced 
at varying levels of purity and is used as a sweetener/taste enhancer, 
a buffering agent, reabsorbable amino acid, chemical intermediate, and 
a metal complexing agent. This review covers glycine of all purity 
levels. Glycine is currently classified under subheading 2922.49.4020 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). 
Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and Customs 
purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the 
order is dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the briefs and rebuttal briefs are addressed 
in the ``Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the 
2007-2008 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Glycine from the 
People's Republic of China'' from John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy 
Assistant Secretary, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant 
Secretary, dated August 6, 2009 (``I&D Memo''), which is hereby adopted 
by this notice. A list of the issues raised, all of which are addressed 
in the I&D Memo, is attached to this notice as Appendix I. Parties can 
find a complete discussion of all issues raised in the briefs and 
rebuttal briefs and the corresponding recommendations in this public 
memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, room 1117 of 
the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the 
I&D Memo can be accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the I&D Memo are 
identical in content.

Separate Rates

    Baoding Mantong requested a separate, company-specific antidumping 
duty rate. In the Preliminary Results, we found that Baoding Mantong 
met the criteria for the application of a separate antidumping duty 
rate. Preliminary Results, 74 FR at 15933. Therefore, the Department 
has applied a rate to Baoding Mantong separate from the rate 
established for the PRC-wide entity. Also in the Preliminary Results, 
the Department found that Nantong Dongchang Chemical Industry 
Corporation (``Nantong Dongchang'') did not participate in the 
administrative review and, thus, did not demonstrate its entitlement to 
a separate rate. Id. at 15933-34. Accordingly, for these final results, 
Nantong Dongchang does not qualify for separate rate status, but rather 
is appropriately considered to be part of the PRC-wide entity which is 
assigned a rate of 155.89 percent based on facts otherwise available 
with an adverse inference (``AFA''). Id. The Department did not receive 
comments on this issue prior to these final results.

Use of Facts Otherwise Available and the PRC-Wide Rate

    As noted above, the Department found that Nantong Dongchang did not 
establish its eligibility for separate rate status, and thus is deemed 
to be part of the PRC-wide entity. Also, in the Preliminary Results, 
the Department noted that Nantong Dongchang did not participate in the 
administrative review, and did not respond to any portions of the 
Department's questionnaires. As the Department found that the PRC-wide 
entity, which includes Nantong Dongchang, failed to cooperate to the 
best of its ability in responding to the Department's requests for 
information and thereby impeded the Department's proceeding, the 
Department assigned the PRC-wide entity a rate based on AFA pursuant to 
sections 776(a)(2)(A), (B), and (C) and section 776(b) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Preliminary Results, 74 FR 
at 15934. The Department did not receive any comments regarding its 
preliminary application of AFA to the PRC-wide entity. See Preliminary 
Results, 74 FR at 15933-35. Therefore, for these final results, the 
Department has not altered its analysis or decision to apply total AFA 
to the PRC-wide entity.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of information on the record of this review, 
and comments received from the interested parties, we have made changes 
to the margin calculations for Baoding Mantong.
    In particular, we have made modifications to our selection of 
certain SVs used in the Preliminary Results. The values that were 
modified for these final results are those for formaldehyde, steam 
coal, and chlorine. For further details, see the accompanying I&D Memo 
at Comments 3, 5, and 6.
    We determine that the following antidumping duty margins exist for 
the period of March 1, 2007, through February 29, 2008:

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the final 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 in the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return/destruction or conversion to judicial protective 
order of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Failure to comply is a violation of the APO.
    This notice of final results is issued and published in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: August 6, 2009.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
