producers or exporters.\2\ If the interested party intends for the 
Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer 
if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which 
were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of 
origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must 
state specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the 
request is intended to cover.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ If the review request involves a non-market economy and the 
parties subject to the review request do not qualify for separate 
rates, all other exporters of subject merchandise from the non-
market economy country who do not have a separate rate will be 
covered by the review as part of the single entity of which the 
named firms are a part.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate 
in prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an 
administrative review of that party absent new information as to the 
party's location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request 
for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it 
requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation 
of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same 
time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to 
determine

[[Page 23238]]

if the interested party's attempts were reasonable, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.303(f)(3)(ii).
    As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), the 
Department has clarified its practice with respect to the collection of 
final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate 
firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in 
determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise 
subject to antidumping findings and orders. See also the Import 
Administration Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov.
    Six copies of the request 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. The Department also 
asks parties to serve a copy of their requests to the Office of 
Antidumping/Countervailing Operations, Attention: Sheila Forbes, in 
room 3065 of the main Commerce Building. Further, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on every 
party on the Department's service list.
    The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of 
``Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation'' for requests received 
by the last day of May 2010. If the Department does not receive, by the 
last day of May 2010, a request for review of entries covered by an 
order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice and 
for the period identified above, the Department will instruct CBP to 
assess antidumping or countervailing duties on those entries at a rate 
equal to the cash deposit of (or bond for) estimated antidumping or 
countervailing duties required on those entries at the time of entry, 
or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption and to continue to 
collect the cash deposit previously ordered.
    For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no 
assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties of subject 
merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption 
during the relevant provisional-measures ``gap'' period, of the order 
if such a gap period is applicable to the POR.
    This notice is not required by statute but is published as a 
service to the international trading community.

    Dated: April 23, 2010.
Edward C. Yang,
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
