Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 202 / Wednesday, October 21, 2009 / Notices We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.10914 hours per response. Respondents: Foreign national plant protection organizations; importers of nursery stock. Estimated annual number of respondents: 52. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 79.46. Estimated annual number of responses: 4,132. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 451 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.

SUMMARY: On January 28, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a notice of initiation of a changed circumstances review (‘‘CCR’’) of the countervailing duty (‘‘CVD’’) order on certain pasta from Turkey as requested by Marsan Gida Sanayi ve Ticret A.S. (‘‘Marsan’’). See Notice of Initiation of Countervailing Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Pasta from Turkey, 74 FR 4938 (January 28, 2009) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). On September 15, 2009, we published our preliminary results of the CVD CCR. See Certain Pasta From Turkey: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 74 FR 47225 (September 15, 2009) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). Pursuant to the new criteria outlined in the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily found that Marsan is not the successor to Gidasa Sabanci Gida Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (‘‘Gidasa’’) for purposes of the CVD cash deposit rates. We invited interested parties to comment on these preliminary results and we received comments from Marsan. For the final results, we continue to find that Marsan is not the successor to Gidasa, for purposes of the CVD cash deposit rates, and therefore its merchandise should continue to enter under the ‘‘all others’’ cash deposit rate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 24, 1996, the Department published in the Federal Register the order on certain pasta from Turkey. See Notice of Countervailing Duty Order: Certain Pasta (‘‘Pasta’’) From Turkey, 61 FR 38546 (July 24, 1996). On December 3, 2008, Marsan requested that the Department initiate and conduct expedited CCRs to determine that, for purposes of the antidumping duty (‘‘AD’’) and CVD cash deposit rates, Marsan is the successor to Gidasa. See Marsan’s December 3, 2008, submission entitled, ‘‘Pasta from Turkey: Request for Expedited Changed Circumstances Review of AD/CVD Orders’’ (‘‘CCR Request’’). On January 28, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of a CCR of the CVD order for Marsan. See Initiation Notice. On April 16, 2009, the Department requested additional information and issued a questionnaire to Marsan, to which it responded on May 1, 2009. See Marsan’s May 1, 2009, response entitled, ‘‘Pasta from Turkey: Marsan response to the supplemental questionnaire.’’ On April 14, 2009, and June 2, 2009, the Department published its preliminary and final results, respectively, for the CCR of the AD order on certain pasta from Turkey and found that Marsan was the successor– in-interest to Gidasa for AD cash deposit purposes. See Certain Pasta from Turkey: Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 74 FR 17153 (April 14, 2009); Certain Pasta from Turkey: Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 74 FR 26373 (June 2, 2009). On September 15, 2009, the Department published the preliminary results of the CVD CCR of the CVD order on pasta from Turkey and preliminarily found that, based on the Department’s new methodology and criteria to analyze successorship claims in CVD CCRs, Marsan was not the successor to Gidasa, for purposes of the CVD cash deposit rate, and therefore its merchandise should continue to enter under the ‘‘all others’’ cash deposit rate.
