SUMMARY: In response to a request from Seaman Paper Company of Massachusetts, Inc. (the petitioner), the Department of Commerce (the Department) is initiating an anti– circumvention inquiry to determine whether certain imports of tissue paper from Vietnam are circumventing the antidumping duty order on certain tissue paper products (tissue paper) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Tissue Paper Products from the People’s Republic of China, 70 FR 16223 (March 30, 2005) (Tissue Paper Order). EFFECTIVE DATE: April 5, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 18, 2010, the petitioner submitted a letter requesting that the Department initiate and conduct an anti–circumvention inquiry, pursuant to section 781(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.225(h), to determine whether imports of tissue paper from Vietnam which the petitioner alleges Max Fortune (Vietnam) Paper Products Company Limited (Max Fortune Vietnam) made from jumbo rolls and cut sheets of tissue paper produced in the PRC are circumventing the antidumping duty order on tissue paper from the PRC. Specifically, the petitioner alleges that Max Fortune Vietnam is importing into Vietnam PRC–produced jumbo rolls and cut sheets of tissue paper for completion or assembly into merchandise of the same class or kind as that covered by the antidumping duty order on tissue paper from the PRC prior to exporting that merchandise to the United States; and that such activity on the part of Max Fortune Vietnam constitutes circumvention of the PRC tissue paper order. On February 24, 2010, the Department requested that the petitioner provide additional information pertinent to its anti–circumvention inquiry request. See Letter to Seaman Paper Company of Massachusetts, Inc., dated February 24, 2010. The petitioner provided the requested information on March 1, 2010. On March 10, 2010, Department officials spoke with the foreign market researcher who provided certain information contained in the anti– circumvention inquiry request. See memorandum to the file entitled, ‘‘Telephone Conversation with Foreign Market Researcher,’’ dated March 17, 2010. On March 16, 2010, Max Fortune Vietnam responded to the petitioner’s circumvention allegation. In its submission, Max Fortune Vietnam asserts, among other things, that it has never imported raw tissue paper from the PRC, and that its tissue paper production and processing operations in Vietnam are significant. Therefore, Max Fortune Vietnam requests that the Department reject the petitioner’s request to initiate an anti– circumvention inquiry with respect to its operations.
