SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES On July 29, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published in the Federal Register the initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain large diameter carbon and alloy seamless standard, line, and pressure pipe from Japan, covering the period June 1, 2008, through May 31, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Review, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009). The preliminary results for this administrative review were due no later than March 9, 2010.1 On March 4, 2010, the Department extended the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 30 days to April 8, 2010, because it needed additional time to analyze additional information regarding a respondent’s entries that had been placed on the record. See Certain Large Diameter Carbon and Alloy Seamless Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Japan: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of 1 As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, through February 12, 2010. As a result, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by seven days, and the revised deadline for the preliminary determination became March 9, 2010. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding ‘‘Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,’’ dated February 12, 2010. VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:07 Apr 08, 2010 Jkt 220001 Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively. The review covers four manufacturers/exporters: JFE Steel Corporation; Nippon Steel Corporation; NKK Tubes; and Sumitomo Metal Industries, Ltd. These four manufacturers/exporters submitted letters to the Department certifying that they made no shipments or entries for consumption in the United States of the subject merchandise during the period of review (‘‘POR’’). In response to the Department’s query to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’), CBP data showed POR entries for consumption of subject merchandise that were manufactured by one of the respondent companies. The information regarding these entries has been placed on the record of this review under the terms of the administrative protective order. The Department solicited additional information and comments regarding these entries. On March 31, 2010, CBP notified the Department that there were additional POR entries for consumption of the subject merchandise manufactured by one of the four respondent companies. The Department is awaiting documentation for these entries. Because the Department requires additional time to analyze this new information, it is not practicable to complete this review within the initial time extension of April 8, 2010. Therefore, the Department is further extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by an additional 90 days to July 7, 2010, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam and the PRC covering multiple entities. The Department is now initiating administrative reviews of these orders covering those entities. Notice of No Sales Under 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind a review where there are no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise during the respective period of review (‘‘POR’’) listed below. If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no 1 These companies are: Camau Frozen Seafood Processing Import Export Corporation (‘‘Camimex’’), Grobest & I-Mei Industrial (Vietnam) Co., Ltd.

The Department will consider rescinding the review only if the producer or exporter, as appropriate, submits a properly filed and timely statement certifying that it had no exports, sales or entries of subject merchandise during the POR. All submissions must be made in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303 and are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’). Six copies of the submission should be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230. Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy of each request must be served on every party on the Department’s service list. Respondent Selection In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (‘‘APO’’) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of this initiation notice, and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 20 days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within 10 calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. Separate Rates In proceedings involving non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) countries, the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and thus, should be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the Department’s policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a separate rate. To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from government control of its export activities to be entitled to a separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the subject E:\FR\FM\09APN1.SGM 09APN1

Countervailing Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 9, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 17, 1993, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the countervailing duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon 
steel flat products (CORE) from Korea. See Countervailing Duty Orders 
and Amendments of Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determinations: 
Certain Steel Products from Korea, 58 FR 43752 (August 17, 1993). On 
August 3, 2009, the Department published a notice of ``Opportunity to 
Request Administrative Review'' of this countervailing duty order. See 
Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 74 FR 
38397 (August 3, 2009). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we 
published a notice of initiation of the administrative review on 
September 22, 2009, for the 2008 period of review (POR). See Initiation 
of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and 
Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 48224 (September 22, 2009). The 
preliminary results for this review were originally due no later than 
May 3, 2010. As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant 
Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its 
discretion to toll deadlines

[[Page 18154]]

for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 
5, through February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of 
the proceeding have been extended by seven days. The revised deadline 
for the preliminary results of this review is now May 10, 2010. See 
Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import 
Administration, regarding ``Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a 
Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,'' dated 
February 12, 2010.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and the 
final results of review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete 
the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 
days and 180 days, respectively.
    In this administrative review, there are complex issues regarding 
several research and development programs. Because the Department will 
require additional time to review and analyze the supplemental 
information recently received and may issue further supplemental 
questionnaires, it is not practicable to complete this review within 
the originally anticipated time limit (i.e., by May 10, 2010). 
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of 
the preliminary results by 120 days to not later than September 7, 
2010, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: April 5, 2010.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
