Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 245 / Wednesday, December 23, 2009 / Notices review. Therefore, we find that the rate is relevant for use in this administrative review and, therefore, it has probative value for use as AFA. As such, the Department finds this rate to be corroborated to the extent practicable consistent with section 776(c) of Act. Therefore, as AFA, we have selected the rate of $2.63 per kilogram for PRC– wide entity, the highest margin we calculated for a respondent in the immediately preceding administrative review. We consider the $2.63 per kilogram rate to be sufficiently high so as to encourage participation in future segments of this proceeding. Preliminary Results of the Review The Department has determined that the following preliminary dumping margins exist for the period December 1, 2007 through November 30, 2008: HONEY FROM THE PRC Manufacturer/Exporter Margin (per kilogram) PRC–wide Entity30 ....... $2.63 30 The srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES PRC-wide entity includes: Anhui Native Produce Import and Export Corp., Inner Mongolia Youth Trade Development Co., Ltd., Qinhuangdao Municipal Dafeng Industrial Co., Ltd., and Wuhu Qinshgi Tangye. Schedule for Final Results of Review Interested parties may submit case briefs and/or written comments no later than 30 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results of review. See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(ii). Rebuttal briefs and rebuttals to written comments, limited to issues raised in such briefs or comments, may be filed no later than 37 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results of review. See 19 CFR 351.309(d). The Department urges interested parties to provide an executive summary of each argument contained within the case briefs and rebuttal briefs. Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of publication of these preliminary results. See 19 CFR 351.310(c). Requests should contain the following information: (1) The party’s name, address, and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of the issues to be discussed. Oral presentations will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If we receive a request for a hearing, we intend to hold the hearing seven days after the deadline for submission of the rebuttal briefs at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230. The Department will issue the final results of this administrative review, which will include the results of its VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:26 Dec 22, 2009 Jkt 220001 analysis of issues raised in any such comments, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Assessment Rates Consistent with the Sixth AR Final Results, we will direct CBP to assess importer–specific assessment rates based on the resulting per–unit (i.e., per kilogram) amount on each entry of the subject merchandise during the POR.31 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, the Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For assessment purposes, we calculated importer–specific assessment rates for honey from the PRC. Specifically, we divided the total duties for each importer by the total quantity of subject merchandise sold to that importer during the POR to calculate a per–unit assessment amount. We will direct CBP to assess importer–specific assessment rates based on the resulting per–unit (i.e., per kilogram) amount on each entry of the subject merchandise during the POR if any importer–specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. Due to the fact that this review of Dongtai Peak is preliminarily rescinded, if this preliminary rescission is adopted in our final results of review, Dongtai Peak’s antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2). Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash–deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results for shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) for subject merchandise exported by Dongtai Peak the cash deposit rate will be $0.98 per kilogram; (2) for Anhui Native, QMD, Inner Mongolia, Wuhu Qinshgi and all other PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate and, thus, are a part of the PRC–wide entity, the cash– 31 See PO 00000 Sixth AR Final Results. Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68253 deposit rate will be the PRC–wide rate of $2.63 per–kilogram; (3) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non– PRC exporters not listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter–specific rate published for the most recent period; and, (4) for all non–PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash– deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non–PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification of Interested Parties This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This administrative review, and this notice are in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213 and 351.221(b)(4). Dated: December 16, 2009. Ronald K.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On August 9, 2004, we published in the Federal Register an 
antidumping duty order on polyethylene retail carrier bags (PRCBs) from 
the People's Republic of China (PRC). See Antidumping Duty Order: 
Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags From the People's Republic of China, 
69 FR 48201 (August 9, 2004). On August 3, 2009, we published in the 
Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on PRCBs from the PRC. See 
Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 74 FR 
38397 (August 3, 2009). On August 31, 2009, pursuant to section 751(a) 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), 
the Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bag Committee and its individual 
members, Hilex Poly Co., LLC, and Superbag Corporation (collectively, 
the petitioners), requested an administrative review of the order with 
respect to Dongguan Nozawa Plastics Products Co., Ltd., and United 
Power Packaging, Ltd. (collectively, Nozawa), exporters of PRCBs from 
the PRC. Also on August 31, 2009, pursuant to section 751(a) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.213(b), Chung Va Century Macao Commercial Offshore Ltd. 
(Chung Va Macao) and Chinese Factory Zhuhai Chintec Packaging 
Technology Enterprise Co., Ltd. (Chintec Packaging), requested an 
administrative review of the order with respect to their exports of 
PRCBs from the PRC. On September 22, 2009, in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we published a notice of 
initiation of an administrative review of the order. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 48224 (September 22, 2009).

Rescission of Review in Part

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will 
rescind an administrative review, ``in whole or in part, if a party 
that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the 
date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.'' 
We received a notice of withdrawal from the petitioners with respect to 
Nozawa within the 90-day time limit. See letter from the petitioners 
dated November 17, 2009. Because the Department received no other 
requests for review of Nozawa, the Department is rescinding the review 
of the order with respect to Nozawa. We also received a notice of 
withdrawal from Chung Va Macao and Chintec Packaging within the 90-day 
limit. See letter dated November 20, 2009. Because the Department 
received no other requests for review of Chung Va Macao and Chintec 
Packaging, the Department is rescinding the review of the order with 
respect to Chung Va Macao and Chintec Packaging. This rescission is in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
this notice.

Notification to Importer

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

    Dated: December 17, 2009.
