Download as PDF 38080 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 126 / Thursday, July 1, 2010 / Notices 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 jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES 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. Paul Piquado, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

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.

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.

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.

The Department intends to issue liquidation instructions for the PRC entity, which will cover any entries by Maanshan Leader, 15 days after publication of the final results of the ongoing administrative review. This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destructions of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a).

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


DATES: Effective Date: July 1, 2010.

SUMMARY: 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.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alexis Polovina, AD/CVD Operations, 
Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-3927.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

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.
    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.

Notifications

    Because Maanshan Leader remains under review as part of the PRC 
entity in the ongoing administrative review,

[[Page 38081]]

the Department will not order liquidation of entries for Maanshan 
Leader. The Department intends to issue liquidation instructions for 
the PRC entity, which will cover any entries by Maanshan Leader, 15 
days after publication of the final results of the ongoing 
administrative review.
    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destructions of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a). Timely 
written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is 
subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in 
accordance with section 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(f)(3).

    Dated: June 25, 2010.
John M. Andersen,
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
