See Initiation of AntiDumping Duty Investigation: Polyvinyl Alcohol From Taiwan, 69 FR 59204 (October 4, 2004).

Effective Date: July 1, 2010. In response to a request from Maanshan Leader Metal Products Co., Ltd. (‘‘Maanshan Leader’’), the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) published on September 25, 2009, a Federal Register notice announcing the initiation of a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) covering the period of January 23, 2008, through July 31, 2009. On May 28, 2010, Maanshan Leader withdrew its request for a new shipper review. Therefore, we are rescinding this new shipper review with respect to Maanshan Leader.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: SUMMARY: Background On August 24, 2009, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from Maanshan Leader in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) and 351.214(d)(2). On September 25, 2009, the Department found that the request for review with respect to Maanshan Leader met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated an antidumping duty new shipper review. See Certain Steel Nails From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 74 FR 48907 (September 25, 2009) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). On February 12, 2010, due to the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, through February 12, 2010, the Department exercised its discretion to toll deadlines by seven days. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, ‘‘Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,’’ dated February 12, 2010. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On April 5, 2010, the Department aligned this new shipper review with the concurrent first administrative review. See Memorandum to the File from Alexis Polovina, Case Analyst, through Alex Villanueva, Program Manager, regarding: Alignment of New Shipper Review of Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China with the 1th Administrative Review of Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China, dated April 5, 2010. On May 28, 2010, Maanshan Leader withdrew its request for a new shipper review. On June 14, 2010, we placed on the record and served to parties a memorandum stating that the Department intended to rescind the above-referenced new shipper review, allowing parties to comment on the intended rescission by no later than June 17, 2010. See Memorandum to the File from Alexis Polovina, Case Analyst, through Alex Villanueva, Program Manager, regarding: Withdrawal of Request for NSR from Maanshan Leader, dated June 14, 2010. The Department did not receive comments from any party. Rescission of New Shipper Review 19 CFR 351.214(f)(1) provides that the Department may rescind a new shipper review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within 60 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Although Maanshan Leader withdrew its request after the 60 day deadline, we find it reasonable to extend the deadline. See 19 CFR 351.302(b). In this instance, no other company would be affected by a rescission, and we have received no objections from any party to Maanshan Leader’s withdrawal of its request for this new shipper review. Based upon the above, we are rescinding the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails from the PRC with respect to Maanshan Leader. See Hand Trucks and Certain Parts Thereof From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Rescission of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 74 FR 31911 (July 6, 2009) (rescinding the new shipper review after the 60 day deadline). As the Department is rescinding this new shipper review, we are not calculating a company-specific rate for Maanshan Leader, and Maanshan Leader will remain part of the PRC entity in the ongoing administrative review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 27, 2004, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated the antidumping duty investigation on polyvinyl alcohol from 
Taiwan. See Initiation of Anti-Dumping Duty Investigation: Polyvinyl 
Alcohol From Taiwan, 69 FR 59204 (October 4, 2004). On October 22, 
2004, the International Trade Commission (ITC) made a preliminary 
negative determination regarding whether there was a reasonable 
indication of injury due to imports of the subject merchandise. As a 
result, the Department did not continue the investigation.

[[Page 38080]]

    The petitioner appealed the negative ITC preliminary determination 
to the Court of International Trade (CIT). On remand from the CIT, the 
ITC reversed its preliminary injury determination and found instead 
that there was a reasonable indication of injury due to imports of the 
subject merchandise. The CIT affirmed the ITC's remand determination. 
DuPont, an importer of the subject merchandise, appealed the CIT's 
decision to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC). On 
December 23, 2009, the CAFC affirmed the ITC's decision. See Polyvinyl 
Alcohol From Taiwan; Determination, 75 FR 15726 (March 30, 2010). The 
ITC notified the Department of its affirmative determination in the 
preliminary phase of an antidumping duty investigation concerning 
imports of polyvinyl alcohol from Taiwan on March 25, 2010. See letter 
from the ITC dated March 25, 2010. On April 20, 2010, the Department 
issued a decision memorandum which stated that the deadline for the 
preliminary determination is July 18, 2010. See memorandum to Laurie 
Parkhill dated April 20, 2010, at 10.

Postponement of Preliminary Determination

    On June 17, 2010, Sekisui Specialty Chemicals America, LLC (the 
petitioner), requested a 50-day postponement of the preliminary 
determination in order to allow the Department additional time to 
resolve a number of issues in the investigation which the petitioner 
anticipates will require supplemental questionnaires.
    For reasons identified by the petitioner and because there are no 
compelling reasons to deny the request, the Department is postponing 
the deadline for the preliminary determination in accordance with 
section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
and 19 CFR 351.205(b)(2) and (e), by 50 days to September 6, 2010. The 
deadline for the final determination will continue to be 75 days after 
the date of the preliminary determination, unless extended.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).

    Dated: June 25, 2010.
