On March 29, 2010, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(c), the Department received a timely request for a new shipper review from Jingzhou Meihou. On April 22, 2010, the Department found that the request for review with respect to Jinzhou Meihou met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated a CVD new shipper review. See Raw Flexible Magnets from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty New Shipper Review, 75 FR 22741 (April 30, 2010).1 On May 5, 2010, we issued a CVD questionnaire to Jingzhou Meihou and received the company’s response on June 21, 2010.2 On June 28, 2010, Magnum Magnetics Corporation, the petitioner, submitted to the Department comments on Jinzhou Meihou’s questionnaire response.3 In its submission, petitioner argued that Jingzhou Meihou is not eligible for a new shipper review on the basis that there is a familial affiliation between it and Dongguan Maghard Flexible Magnet Co., Ltd. (Dongguan Maghard), a company that exported subject merchandise to the United States during the CVD POI, which was January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006.

Skinner, Director, Operations, Office 3, regarding ‘‘Jingzhou Meihou’s Eligibility for a New Shipper,’’ (July 30, 2010) (Affiliation Memorandum). We found that Jinzhou Meihou and Dongguan Maghard are affiliated companies on the basis of a familial connection. We also found that Dongguan Maghard was an exporter of subject merchandise to the United States during the CVD POI. We, therefore, determined that Jingzhou Meihou is not eligible for a CVD new shipper review. We provided interested parties the opportunity to submit comments on the Affiliation Memorandum. On August 6, 2010, Jingzhou Meihou submitted a letter to the Department expressing disagreement with the Department’s decision regarding affiliation.4 Jinzhou Meihou, however, stated that it would respect the Department’s decision that the CVD new shipper review be rescinded.5 Petitioner did not submit any comments on the Affiliation Memorandum to the Department. As such, we are rescinding the CVD new shipper review with respect to Jinzhou Meihou and are not calculating a company–specific rate for the company.

This affirmative finding will allow yellowfin tuna harvested in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean (ETP) in compliance with the International Dolphin Conservation Program (IDCP) by Spanish flag purse seine vessels or purse seine vessels operating under Spanish jurisdiction to be imported into the United States. The affirmative finding was based on review of documentary evidence submitted by the Government of Spain and obtained from the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) and the U.S. Department of State.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The MMPA, 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq., allows the entry into the United States of yellowfin tuna harvested by purse seine vessels in the ETP under certain conditions. If requested by the harvesting nation, the Assistant Administrator will determine whether to make an affirmative finding based upon documentary evidence provided by the government of the harvesting nation, the IATTC, or the Department of State. The affirmative finding process requires that the harvesting nation is meeting its obligations under the IDCP and obligations of membership in the IATTC. Every 5 years, the government of the harvesting nation must request an affirmative finding and submit the required documentary evidence directly to the Assistant Administrator. On an annual basis, NMFS will review the affirmative finding and determine whether the harvesting nation continues to meet the requirements. A nation may provide information related to compliance with IDCP and IATTC measures directly to NMFS on an annual basis or may authorize the IATTC to release the information to NMFS to annually renew an affirmative finding determination without an application from the harvesting nation. An affirmative finding will be terminated, in consultation with the Secretary of State, if the Assistant Administrator determines that the requirements of 50 CFR 216.24(f) are no longer being met or that a nation is E:\FR\FM\27AUN1.SGM 27AUN1

Magnets From the People's Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 
73 FR 53849 (September 17, 2008). On March 29, 2010, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(c), the Department received a timely request 
for a new shipper review from Jingzhou Meihou. On April 22, 2010, the 
Department found that the request for review with respect to Jinzhou 
Meihou met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 
351.214(b) and initiated a CVD new shipper review. See Raw Flexible 
Magnets from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of 
Countervailing Duty New Shipper Review, 75 FR 22741 (April 30, 
2010).\1\

shipper review with respect to Jingzhou Meihou. See Raw Flexible 
Magnets from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of 
Countervailing Duty New Shipper Review, 75 FR 22740 (April 30, 
2010).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On May 5, 2010, we issued a CVD questionnaire to Jingzhou Meihou 
and received the company's response on June 21, 2010.\2\ On June 28, 
2010, Magnum Magnetics Corporation, the petitioner, submitted to the 
Department comments on Jinzhou Meihou's questionnaire response.\3\ In 
its submission, petitioner argued that Jingzhou Meihou is not eligible 
for a new shipper review on the basis that there is a familial 
affiliation between it and Dongguan Maghard Flexible Magnet Co., Ltd. 
(Dongguan Maghard), a company that exported subject merchandise to the 
United States during the CVD POI, which was January 1, 2006, through 
December 31, 2006.

Todd, counsel to Jingzhou Meihou, regarding ``New Shipper Review:

Operations, from Melissa G. Skinner, Director, Operations, Office 3, 
regarding ``Jingzhou Meihou's Eligibility for a New Shipper,'' (July 
30, 2010) (Affiliation Memorandum). We found that Jinzhou Meihou and 
Dongguan Maghard are affiliated companies on the basis of a familial 
connection. We also found that Dongguan Maghard was an exporter of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the CVD POI. We, 
therefore, determined that Jingzhou Meihou is not eligible for a CVD 
new shipper review. We provided interested parties the opportunity to 
submit comments on the Affiliation Memorandum. On August 6, 2010, 
Jingzhou Meihou submitted a letter to the Department expressing 
disagreement with the Department's decision regarding affiliation.\4\ 
Jinzhou Meihou, however, stated that it would respect the Department's 
decision that the CVD new shipper review be rescinded.\5\ Petitioner 
did not submit any comments on the Affiliation Memorandum to the 
Department. As such, we are rescinding the CVD new shipper review with 
respect to Jinzhou Meihou and are not calculating a company-specific 
rate for the company.
