SUMMARY: On April 30, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published a notice of initiation of changed circumstance review (‘‘CCR’’) of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Certain Activated Carbon From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Initiation of Changed Circumstances Review, 74 FR 19934 (April 30, 2009) (‘‘Initiation’’). The Department is now rescinding this CCR because Hebei Foreign Trade and Advertising Corporation (‘‘Hebei Foreign’’) because the factual information upon which the Department relied in the initiation of this change circumstances review was later found to be false, and we find there was not a change in circumstances to warrant this review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 24, 2009, the Department received a request from Hebei Foreign1 1 The Department received a similar CCR request from Hebei Foreign on November 7, 2008, and denied the request because the Department found that changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review did not exist. See Letter from Hebei Foreign, to the Department, regarding Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China; Request for Changed Circumstances Review (November 7, 2008); see also Letter from the Department to Hebei Foreign, regarding Changed Circumstance Review: Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) (December 8, 2008). PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48723 for an expedited CCR to find that Hebei Foreign has been succeeded by Hebei Shenglun, and therefore Hebei Shenglun should receive the separate rate assigned to Hebei Foreign in the case of certain activated carbon from the PRC.2 On March 4, 2009, the Department received comments from Petitioners in opposition to the CCR, stating that Hebei Foreign’s February 24, 2009, request for a CCR is nearly identical to the November 7, 2008, request, which the Department denied.3 On April 30, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of CCR of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China. See Initiation. However, the Department found that Hebei Foreign did not provide complete supporting documentation or conclusive evidence that would allow the Department to expedite the CCR by combining the preliminary results of review with the notice of initiation as provided for in 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii). See Initiation. On June 12, 2009, the Department issued a supplemental questionnaire to Hebei Foreign, and on July 6, 2009, Hebei Foreign submitted its response.4 On July 9, 2009, the Department received comments from Petitioner5 concerning Hebei Foreign’s supplemental questionnaire response. Petitioners argue that Hebei Foreign’s supplemental response demonstrates that there is no basis for continuing with a changed circumstances proceeding, and additionally that the Department should revoke Hebei Foreign’s separate rate based on Hebei Foreign’s alleged intentional misrepresentation of its operations and management.6 Petitioners specifically reference statements submitted by Hebei Foreign that reveal that the managers listed in Hebei Foreign’s response are not 2 See Letter from Hebei Foreign, to the Department, regarding Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China; Request for Changed Circumstances Review (February 24, 2009) (‘‘Hebei Foreign’s CCR Request’’). 3 See Letter from Petitioners to the Department, regarding Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China (March 4, 2009). 4 See Letter from the Department to Hebei Foreign, regarding Changed Circumstance Review: Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) (June 12, 2009); also see Letter from Hebei Foreign to the Department, regarding Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China; Supplemental Response of Hebei Foreign Trade and Advertising Corp.
