The Issues and Decision Memorandum also contains a complete analysis of the programs covered by this review, the methodologies used to calculate the subsidy rates, and discusses any changes to the subsidy rates. A list of the comments raised in the briefs and addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is appended to this notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is on file in the Central Records Unit, Room 1117 of the main Department building, and can be accessed directly on the Web at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of comments received, we have revised the calculations with respect to the benefit amount calculated with respect to on certain Export Promotion Capital Goods Scheme (EPCGS) licenses that the GOI issued prior to 2005. Specifically, we deducted the relevant application fees (as an offset) from the unpaid duty amounts that we use in our benefit calculations. For those EPCGS licenses treated as contingent liability loans, we will deducted the relevant application fees from the ‘‘principal’’ (i.e., unpaid duties). For those EPCGS licenses for which the GOI has formally waived the duties, we will deduct the relevant application fees from the amount of unpaid duties that is allocated. All changes are discussed in detail in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Results of Review In accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated individual ad valorem subsidy rates for Jindal, the only producer/exporter subject to review for the calendar year 2007, the period of review for this administrative review.

The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign–Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a– 81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on February 4, 2010. Subzone 33E (123 employees, 360 million square meters coating capacity) currently has authority for the manufacture of thermal transfer ribbon (TTR) (A(27f)-68–2009, 11/12/2009). The subzone (135,985 sq. ft., 3.12 acres) is located at 1001 Technology Drive, Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania. The current request involves the production of monochrome TTR printer rolls (some 336 million square meters capacity), using foreign–sourced master rolls of TTR, representing 71–87% of the value of the finished product. The scope otherwise would remain unchanged. FTZ procedures could exempt DNP from customs duty payments on the foreign TTR master rolls used in export production. The company anticipates that some 10 percent of the plant’s shipments will be exported. On its domestic sales, DNP would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that apply to the finished TTR printer rolls (duty–free) for the foreign TTR master rolls (3.7%). FTZ procedures would further allow DNP to realize logistical benefits through the use of certain customs procedures and duty savings on scrap and waste for the new activity. The request indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures help improve the plant’s international competitiveness.

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
