SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Background On March 7, 1986, the Department published in the Federal Register the CVD order on certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube products from Turkey. See Countervailing Duty Order: Certain Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube Products From Turkey, 51 FR 7984 (March 7, 1986). On April 1, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results for this review. See Preliminary Results, 75 FR 16439. On June 23 and 24, 2010, the Department verified the questionnaire responses submitted by Borusan.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 12:45 Jul 28, 2010 Jkt 220001 preliminary results or to request a hearing. We did not hold a hearing in this review, as one was not requested, and did not receive any case briefs. We, therefore, have made no revisions to the preliminary results. Scope of Order The products covered by this order are certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more, but not over 16 inches, of any wall thickness (pipe and tube) from Turkey. These products are currently provided for under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) as item numbers 7306.30.10, 7306.30.50, and 7306.90.10. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive. Final Results of Review As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the preliminary results. Therefore, consistent with the Preliminary Results, we continue to find that Borusan and Toscelik had de minimis net countervailable subsidy rates for the POR. In accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Act, we calculated a total net countervailable subsidy rate of 0.12 percent ad valorem for Borusan and 0.09 percent for Toscelik. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c), these calculated rates are de minimis. As there have been no changes to or comments on the preliminary results, we are not attaching a decision memorandum to this Federal Register notice. For further details of the programs included in this proceeding, see Preliminary Results. Assessment Rates/Cash Deposits The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 15 days after the date of publication of these final results, to liquidate shipments of subject merchandise by Borusan and Toscelik entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2008, without regard to countervailing duties because a de minimis subsidy rate was calculated for each company. We will also instruct CBP not to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties on shipments of the subject merchandise by Borusan and Toscelik entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this review. For all non–reviewed companies, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44767 cash deposits at the most recent company–specific or country–wide rate applicable to the company. Accordingly, the cash deposit rates that will be applied to companies covered by this order, but not examined in this review, are those established in the most recently completed administrative proceeding for each company. These rates shall apply to all non–reviewed companies until a review of a company assigned these rates is requested. Return or Destruction of Proprietary Information This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

See Antidumping Duty Order: Folding Metal Tables and Chairs From the People’s Republic of China, 67 FR 43277 (June 27, 2002). On June 30, 2010, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from Xinjiamei Furniture (Zhangzhou) Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xinjiamei’’) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) and 351.214(d). Xinjiamei has certified that it produced all of the FMTCs it exported, which is the basis for its request for a new shipper review. Pursuant to the requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i)(d), 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(ii) and 19 CFR 351.214(b)2(iii), in its request for a new shipper review, Xinjiamei, as an exporter and producer, certified that: (1) It did not export FMTCs to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’); (2) since the initiation of the investigation, Xinjiamei has never been affiliated with any company that exported subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’); and (3) its export activities were not controlled by the central government of the PRC.

It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economies (‘‘NMEs), to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. Accordingly, we will issue questionnaires to Xinjiamei, which will include separate rate sections. The review will proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that Xinjiamei is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its export of FMTCs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The notice announcing the antidumping duty order on FMTCs from the 
PRC was published in the Federal Register on June 27, 2002. See 
Antidumping Duty Order: Folding Metal Tables and Chairs From the 
People's Republic of China, 67 FR 43277 (June 27, 2002). On June 30, 
2010, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from 
Xinjiamei Furniture (Zhangzhou) Co., Ltd. (``Xinjiamei'') in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.214(c) and 351.214(d). Xinjiamei has certified that it 
produced all of the FMTCs it exported, which is the basis for its 
request for a new shipper review.
    Pursuant to the requirements set forth in 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(i)(d), 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(ii) and 19 CFR 
351.214(b)2(iii), in its request for a new shipper review, Xinjiamei, 
as an exporter and producer, certified that: (1) It did not export 
FMTCs to the United States during the period of investigation 
(``POI''); (2) since the initiation of the investigation, Xinjiamei has 
never been affiliated with any company that exported subject 
merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation 
(``POI''); and (3) its export activities were not controlled by the 
central government of the PRC.
    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Xinjiamei submitted 
documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which it 
first shipped FMTCs for export to the United States and the date on 
which the FMTCs were first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of 
its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.

Initiation of New Shipper Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the ``Act'') and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), we find that the 
request submitted by Xinjiamei meets the threshold requirements for 
initiation of a new shipper review for shipments of FMTCs from the PRC 
produced and exported by Xinjiamei. See Memorandum to the File through 
Wendy Frankel, Office Director, New Shipper Initiation Checklist, dated 
concurrently with this notice. However, if the information supplied by 
Xinjiamei is later found to be incorrect or insufficient during the 
course of this proceeding, the Department may rescind the review or 
apply adverse facts available, depending upon the facts on record. The 
POR is June 1, 2009, through May 31, 2010. See 19 CFR 
351.214(g)(1)(i)(A). The Department will conduct this review according 
to the deadlines set forth in section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
    It is the Department's usual practice, in cases involving non-
market economies (``NMEs), to require that a company seeking to 
establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the 
country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of 
government control over the company's export activities. Accordingly, 
we will issue questionnaires to Xinjiamei, which will include separate 
rate sections. The review will proceed if the response provides 
sufficient indication that Xinjiamei is not subject to either de jure 
or de facto government control with respect to its export of FMTCs.
    We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to allow, at 
the option of the importer, the posting, until the completion of the 
review, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry 
of the subject merchandise from Xinjiamei in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Xinjiamei 
certified that it both produced and exported the subject merchandise, 
the sale of which is the basis for this new shipper review request, we 
will apply the bonding privilege to Xinjiamei only for subject 
merchandise which Xinjiamei both produced and exported.
    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 
19 CFR 351.306.
    This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).

    Dated: July 23, 2010.
