Pabrik Kertas Tjiwi Kimia Tbk. (TK) and PT. Pindo Deli Pulp and Paper (PD) as the mandatory respondents in this investigation. See Initiation Notice, 74 FR 53714. Since the Initiation Notice, the following events have occurred. The Department set aside a period of time for parties to raise issues regarding product coverage and encouraged all parties to submit comments within 20 calendar days of publication of the Initiation Notice. See Initiation Notice, 74 FR at 53710; see also Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997). We received several scope comment submissions from interested parties during the period November 2009 through April 2010. For further details, see ‘‘Scope Comments’’ section of this notice. The Department also set aside a time for parties to comment on product characteristics for use in the antidumping questionnaire. We received such comments from the respondents on November 2, 2009, and PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24885 from the petitioners1 on November 10, 2009. On November 17, 2009, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) preliminarily determined that there is a reasonable indication that imports of coated paper from Indonesia are materially injuring the U.S. industry and notified the Department of its findings. See Certain Coated Paper Suitable for High-Quality Print Graphics Using Sheet-Fed Presses from China and Indonesia, Investigation Nos. 701–TA– 470–471 and 731–TA–1169–1170 (Preliminary), 74 FR 61174 (November 23, 2009). On November 20, 2009, we issued PD and TK the antidumping duty questionnaire. On December 16, 2009, we issued a memorandum detailing the reasons why it would not be practicable in this investigation to examine individually more than the two Indonesian producers/exporters of coated paper named in the Initiation Notice. See Memorandum from James Maeder, Office Director, to John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary, entitled, ‘‘Certain Coated Paper Suitable for High-Quality Print Graphics Using Sheet-Fed Presses from Indonesia: Selection of Respondents,’’ dated December 16, 2009 (Respondent Selection Memo). On December 22, 2009, PD and TK submitted a consolidated response to section A (i.e., the section covering general information about the company) of the antidumping duty questionnaire. In this submission, PD and TK indicated that not only are they affiliated with each other, but they are also affiliated with a third company that produces coated paper in Indonesia, PT Indah Kiat Pulp and Paper Tbk. (IK). Based on an analysis of the facts of record, as discussed in the ‘‘Collapsing’’ section of this notice below, we find that it is appropriate to treat these companies as a single entity, hereafter referred to as PD/TK/IK.

    The Department published a notice of opportunity to request an

74 FR 45179 (September 1, 2009). GPX timely requested an administrative 
review of the countervailing duty order on OTR Tires from the PRC for 
the period December 17, 2007 through December 31, 2008 for several 
companies, including TUTRIC. In addition, the Department received 
timely requests from Zhongce and TUTRIC. These two companies only 
requested reviews of themselves.
    In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended, (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department 
published a notice initiating an administrative review of the 
countervailing duty order. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation 
in Part, 74 FR 54956 (October 26, 2009).
    On December 30, 2009, the Department rescinded the review with

by GPX of its request for reviews of these companies: Aeolus Tyre Co. 
Ltd., Guizhou Tire Co. Ltd., Jiangsu Feichi Co., Ltd., Shandong Huitong 
Tyre Co., Ltd., Tianjin Wanda Tyre Co., Ltd., and Triangle Tyre Co., 
Ltd. See Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires From the People's 
Republic of China: Partial Rescission of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review, 75 FR 846 (December 30, 2009). On November 20, 
2009, GPX withdrew its request for review of Zhongce and TUTRIC, and on 
January 4, 2010 and January 12, 2010, respectively, Zhongce and TUTRIC

rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review

Zhongce, the only party that self-requested a review, timely withdrew 
its request within the 90-day deadline. In addition, GPX and TUTRIC, 
the only parties that requested a review of TUTRIC, each timely 
withdrew their requests regarding TUTRIC within the 90-day deadline.
