EFFECTIVE DATE: February 26, 2010. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty finding on pressure sensitive plastic tape from Italy pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.221(c)(3). We preliminarily determine that Evotape S.p.A was the successor–in-interest to Tyco Adhesives Italia S.p.A. (Tyco), and that Evotape Packaging S.r.l. (Evotape Packaging) and Evotape Masking S.r.l. (Evotape Masking) are both successors– in-interest to Evotape S.p.A for purposes of determining antidumping liability. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Terre Keaton Stefanova or Rebecca Trainor, AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–1280 and (202) 482–4007, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 27, 2009, Evotape Packaging requested that the Department conduct an expedited changed circumstances review to determine that it is the VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:39 Feb 25, 2010 Jkt 220001 successor–in-interest to Tyco for purposes of determining antidumping liability.1 Evotape Packaging provided additional information at the Department’s request on August 28, 2009. On September 10, 2009, the Department initiated a changed circumstances review but did not expedite the review, as requested by Evotape Packaging, because questions remained as to the factual claims forming the basis of the change circumstances review request. See Pressure Sensitive Plastic Tape from Italy: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 74 FR 47555 (September 16, 2009). On October 26, 2009, the Department placed on the record a memorandum regarding corrections to the scope language contained in the initiation notice. (See October 26, 2009, Memorandum to The File regarding ‘‘Corrections to Scope Language’’). On November 3, 2009, the Department requested additional information from Evotape Packaging, and on November 24, 2009, Evotape Packaging submitted its response to the Department’s information request. Scope of the Finding The products covered by the finding are shipments of pressure sensitive plastic tape measuring over one and three–eighths inches in width and not exceeding four mils in thickness, currently classifiable under subheadings 3919.10.20 and 3919.90.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and for customs purposes. The written description remains dispositive. Successor–in-Interest Determination In making a successor–in-interest determination, the Department typically examines several factors including, but not limited to: (1) management; (2) production facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and (4) customer base. See, e.g., Notice of Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review: Polychloroprene Rubber from Japan, 69 FR 67890 (November 22, 2004) (Polychloroprene Rubber from Japan) citing; Brass Sheet and Strip from Canada; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 57 FR 20460 (May 13, 1992) (Canadian Brass); and, Certain Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Taiwan: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed 1 The cash deposit rate currently applicable to Tyco is zero percent. The all-others rate is 10 percent. PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8925 Circumstances Review, 70 FR 17063 (April 4, 2005). While no single factor or combination of these factors will necessarily be dispositive, the Department will generally consider the new company to be the successor to the previous company if its resulting operation is not materially dissimilar to that of its predecessor. See, e.g., Polychloroprene Rubber from Japan; Industrial Phosphoric Acid from Israel: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, 59 FR 6944 (February 14, 1994); Canadian Brass; Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review and Notice of Intent to Revoke in Part 74 FR 39042 (August 5, 2009); (unchanged in final results Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review and Notice of Revocation in Part 74 FR 52452 (October 13, 2009)). Thus, if the evidence demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise, the new company operates as the same business entity as the former company, the Department will generally accord the new company the same antidumping duty treatment as its predecessor. Preliminary Results In its request for a changed circumstances review, Evotape Packaging explained that, in May 2005, its parent company, Evotape S.p.A, acquired Tyco’s business and assets, which included two production units (packaging and masking tape) and related sales offices. Subsequently, in December 2007, Evotape S.p.A went through a restructuring that created two wholly–owned subsidiaries (i.e., Evotape Packaging and Evotape Masking S.r.l. (Evotape Masking)) using the assets and business of the two production units. In response to the Department’s questions concerning the corporate restructuring, Evotape Packaging stated that Evotape Masking produces two in–scope products, but does not ship or sell these products to the United States, and has no future plans to do so (see August 28, 2009, and November 24, 2009, responses).2 Based on the facts on the record surrounding the acquisition and 2 Notwithstanding this fact and Evotape Packaging’s original changed circumstances review request to determine that only it is the successorin-interest to Tyco, Evotape Packaging acknowledged in its November 24, 2009, response that it may be appropriate to consider both Evotape Packaging and Evotape Masking as successors-ininterest to Tyco because they are both whollyowned subsidiaries of Evotape S.p.A.
