FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Drew Jackson, AD/CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: 202–482–4406. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES Background In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), on July 2, 2010, the Department published Certain Woven Electric Blankets From the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 75 FR 38459 (July 2, 2010) (‘‘Final Determination’’). Following the publication of the Final Determination, we received timely notice from Jarden Consumer Solutions (‘‘Petitioner’’), that the Department had made ministerial errors in its calculation of the antidumping duty margins for the mandatory respondent, Hung Kuo Electronics (Shenzen) Company Limited (‘‘Hung Kuo’’). After analyzing Petitioner’s comments, the Department concluded that an inadvertent ministerial error was made in the calculation of Hung Kuo’s margin. Therefore, in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), on August 4, 2010, the Department published Certain Woven Electric Blankets from the People’s Republic of VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:40 Aug 17, 2010 Jkt 220001 China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 75 FR 46911 (August 4, 2010) (‘‘Amended Final Determination’’). In the Amended Final Determination, to correct this inadvertent ministerial error, we amended Hung Kuo’s weighted average dumping margin from 77.75 percent to 93.09 percent and, as we did in the Final Determination, assigned Hung Kuo’s new rate of 93.09 percent to the two separate rate companies—Ningbo V.K. Industry & Trading Co., Ltd. and Ningbo Jifa Electrical Appliances Co., Ltd./Ningbo Jinchun Electric Appliances Co., Ltd. The PRC-wide rate, 174.85 percent, was not changed from the Final Determination. See Amended Final Determination at 46911. On August 10, 2010, the ITC notified the Department of its affirmative final determination of material injury to a U.S. industry. See Woven Electric Blankets from China, Investigation No. 731–TA–1163 (Final), USITC Publication 4177 (August 2010). Pursuant to section 736(a) of the Act, the Department is issuing the antidumping duty order on woven electric blankets from the PRC. Scope of the Order The scope of this order covers finished, semi-finished, and unassembled woven electric blankets, including woven electric blankets commonly referred to as throws, of all sizes and fabric types, whether made of man-made fiber, natural fiber or a blend of both. Semi-finished woven electric blankets and throws consist of shells of woven fabric containing wire. Unassembled woven electric blankets and throws consist of a shell of woven fabric and one or more of the following components when packaged together or in a kit: (1) Wire; (2) controller(s). The shell of woven fabric consists of two sheets of fabric joined together forming a ‘‘shell.’’ The shell of woven fabric is manufactured to accommodate either the electric blanket’s wiring or a subassembly containing the electric blanket’s wiring (e.g., wiring mounted on a substrate). A shell of woven fabric that is not packaged together, or in a kit, with either wire, controller(s), or both, is not covered by this investigation even though the shell of woven fabric may be dedicated solely for use as a material in the production of woven electric blankets. The finished, semi-finished and unassembled woven electric blankets and throws subject to this order are currently classifiable under subheading 6301.10.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50991 (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, only the written description of the scope is dispositive. Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that suspension of liquidation instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. At the request of an exporter accounting for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, we extended the four-month period to no more than six months. See Certain Woven Electric Blankets From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 75 FR 5567 (February 3, 2010) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). In this investigation, the six-month period beginning on the date of the publication of the Preliminary Determination (i.e., February 3, 2010) ended on August 2, 2010. Furthermore, section 737 of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, we have instructed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to terminate suspension of liquidation and to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties (i.e., release all bonds and refund all cash deposits), unliquidated entries of woven electric blankets from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after August 2, 2010, and before the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will continue on or after the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination in the Federal Register. Antidumping Duty Order On August 10, 2010, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final determination, pursuant to section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of lessthan-fair-value imports of subject merchandise from the PRC. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct CBP to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the E:\FR\FM\18AUN1.SGM 18AUN1 50992 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 159 / Wednesday, August 18, 2010 / Notices normal value of the merchandise exceeds the constructed export price of the merchandise for all relevant entries of woven electric blankets from the PRC. Except for the entries noted above,1 these antidumping duties will be assessed on all unliquidated entries of woven electric blankets from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from the warehouse, for consumption on or after February 3, 2010, the date on which the Department published its Preliminary Determination. See Preliminary Determination at 5567. Effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average antidumping duty margins listed below.

Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Woven Electric Blankets From the 
People's Republic of China

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

DATES: Effective Date: August 18, 2010
SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (the ``Department'') and the International Trade Commission 
(``ITC''), the Department is issuing an antidumping duty order on 
certain woven electric blankets (``woven electric blankets'') from the 
People's Republic of China (``PRC'').

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Drew Jackson, AD/CVD Operations, 
Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: 202-482-4406.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the ``Act''), on July 2, 2010, the Department 
published Certain Woven Electric Blankets From the People's Republic of 
China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 75 FR 
38459 (July 2, 2010) (``Final Determination''). Following the 
publication of the Final Determination, we received timely notice from 
Jarden Consumer Solutions (``Petitioner''), that the Department had 
made ministerial errors in its calculation of the antidumping duty 
margins for the mandatory respondent, Hung Kuo Electronics (Shenzen) 
Company Limited (``Hung Kuo''). After analyzing Petitioner's comments, 
the Department concluded that an inadvertent ministerial error was made 
in the calculation of Hung Kuo's margin. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), on August 4, 2010, the 
Department published Certain Woven Electric Blankets from the People's 
Republic of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than 
Fair Value, 75 FR 46911 (August 4, 2010) (``Amended Final 
Determination''). In the Amended Final Determination, to correct this 
inadvertent ministerial error, we amended Hung Kuo's weighted average 
dumping margin from 77.75 percent to 93.09 percent and, as we did in 
the Final Determination, assigned Hung Kuo's new rate of 93.09 percent 
to the two separate rate companies--Ningbo V.K. Industry & Trading Co., 
Ltd. and Ningbo Jifa Electrical Appliances Co., Ltd./Ningbo Jinchun 
Electric Appliances Co., Ltd. The PRC-wide rate, 174.85 percent, was 
not changed from the Final Determination. See Amended Final 
Determination at 46911.
    On August 10, 2010, the ITC notified the Department of its 
affirmative final determination of material injury to a U.S. industry. 
See Woven Electric Blankets from China, Investigation No. 731-TA-1163 
(Final), USITC Publication 4177 (August 2010). Pursuant to section 
736(a) of the Act, the Department is issuing the antidumping duty order 
on woven electric blankets from the PRC.

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order covers finished, semi-finished, and 
unassembled woven electric blankets, including woven electric blankets 
commonly referred to as throws, of all sizes and fabric types, whether 
made of man-made fiber, natural fiber or a blend of both. Semi-finished 
woven electric blankets and throws consist of shells of woven fabric 
containing wire. Unassembled woven electric blankets and throws consist 
of a shell of woven fabric and one or more of the following components 
when packaged together or in a kit: (1) Wire; (2) controller(s). The 
shell of woven fabric consists of two sheets of fabric joined together 
forming a ``shell.'' The shell of woven fabric is manufactured to 
accommodate either the electric blanket's wiring or a subassembly 
containing the electric blanket's wiring (e.g., wiring mounted on a 
substrate).
    A shell of woven fabric that is not packaged together, or in a kit, 
with either wire, controller(s), or both, is not covered by this 
investigation even though the shell of woven fabric may be dedicated 
solely for use as a material in the production of woven electric 
blankets.
    The finished, semi-finished and unassembled woven electric blankets 
and throws subject to this order are currently classifiable under 
subheading 6301.10.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (``HTSUS''). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, only the written description of the 
scope is dispositive.

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that suspension of liquidation 
instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary 
determination may not remain in effect for more than four months except 
where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the 
subject merchandise request the Department to extend that four-month 
period to no more than six months. At the request of an exporter 
accounting for a significant proportion of exports of the subject 
merchandise, we extended the four-month period to no more than six 
months. See Certain Woven Electric Blankets From the People's Republic 
of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value 
and Postponement of Final Determination, 75 FR 5567 (February 3, 2010) 
(``Preliminary Determination''). In this investigation, the six-month 
period beginning on the date of the publication of the Preliminary 
Determination (i.e., February 3, 2010) ended on August 2, 2010. 
Furthermore, section 737 of the Act states that definitive duties are 
to begin on the date of publication of the ITC's final injury 
determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, 
we have instructed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to 
terminate suspension of liquidation and to liquidate without regard to 
antidumping duties (i.e., release all bonds and refund all cash 
deposits), unliquidated entries of woven electric blankets from the PRC 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after August 2, 
2010, and before the date of publication of the ITC's final injury 
determination in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will 
continue on or after the date of publication of the ITC's final injury 
determination in the Federal Register.

Antidumping Duty Order

    On August 10, 2010, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, 
the ITC notified the Department of its final determination, pursuant to 
section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, that an industry in the United 
States is materially injured by reason of less-than-fair-value imports 
of subject merchandise from the PRC. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct CBP to assess, 
upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to 
the amount by which the

[[Page 50992]]

normal value of the merchandise exceeds the constructed export price of 
the merchandise for all relevant entries of woven electric blankets 
from the PRC. Except for the entries noted above,\1\ these antidumping 
duties will be assessed on all unliquidated entries of woven electric 
blankets from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from the warehouse, for 
consumption on or after February 3, 2010, the date on which the 
Department published its Preliminary Determination. See Preliminary 
Determination at 5567.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Namely, entries of woven electric blankets from the PRC 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after August 
2, 2010, and before the date of publication of the ITC's final 
injury determination in the Federal Register.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Effective on the date of publication of the ITC's final affirmative 
injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers 
would normally deposit estimated duties on this merchandise, a cash 
deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average antidumping duty 
margins listed below. See section 735(c)(3) of the Act. The ``PRC-
wide'' rate applies to all exporters of subject merchandise not 
specifically listed. The weighted-average dumping margins are as 
follows:
