Initiation of Five-Year (“Sunset”) Review, 60731-60732 [2010-24736]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 190 / Friday, October 1, 2010 / Notices certified that it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’). In addition, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and section 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A) of the Department’s regulations, Quoc Viet certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any Vietnamese exporter or producer who exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, including those respondents not individually examined during the investigation. As required by section 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B) of the Department’s regulations, Quoc Viet also certified that its export activities were not controlled by the central government of Vietnam. In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to section 351.214(b)(2)(iv) of the Department’s regulations, Quoc Viet submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which Quoc Viet first shipped subject merchandise for export to the United States and; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.2 Initiation of New Shipper Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and section 351.214(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations, we find that the request submitted by Quoc Viet meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a NSR for shipments of shrimp from Vietnam produced and exported by Quoc Viet.3 The POR is February 1, 2010–July 31, 2010.4 The Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this NSR no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and the final results no later than 270 days from the date of initiation.5 It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economies, to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the NME entity-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 Quoc Viet, which will include a section requesting information with regard to Quoc Viet’s export activities for separate rate purposes. The NSR will proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that Quoc Viet is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its export of subject merchandise. 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 Quoc Viet in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and section 351.214(e) of the Department’s regulations. Because Quoc Viet 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 Quoc Viet only for subject merchandise which Quoc Viet both produced and exported. Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in this NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with sections 351.305 and 351.306 of the Department’s regulations. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and sections 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i) of the Department’s regulations. Dated: September 20, 2010. Susan H. Kuhbach, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.

Filing Information

    As a courtesy, we are making information related to Sunset 
proceedings, including copies of the pertinent statute and Department's 
regulations, the Department schedule for Sunset Reviews, a listing of 
past revocations and continuations, and current service lists, 
available to the public on the Department's Internet Web site at the 
following address: ``http://ia.ita.doc.gov/sunset/.'' All submissions 
in these Sunset Reviews must be filed in accordance with the 
Department's regulations regarding format, translation, service, and 
certification of documents. These rules can be found at 19 CFR 351.303.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.103 (d), the Department will maintain and 
make available a service list for these proceedings. To facilitate the 
timely preparation of the service list(s), it is requested that those 
seeking recognition as interested parties to a proceeding contact the 
Department in writing within 10 days of the publication of the Notice 
of Initiation.
    Because deadlines in Sunset Reviews can be very short, we urge 
interested parties to apply for access to proprietary information under 
administrative protective order (``APO'') immediately following 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation by 
filing a notice of intent to participate. The Department's regulations 
on submission of proprietary information and eligibility to receive 
access to business proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 
CFR 351.304-306.

Information Required From Interested Parties

    Domestic interested parties defined in section 771(9)(C), (D), (E), 
(F), and (G) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b)) wishing to participate 
in a Sunset Review must respond not later than 15 days after the date 
of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation by 
filing a notice of intent to participate. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). 
The required contents of the notice of intent to participate are set 
forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with the Department's 
regulations, if we do not receive a notice of intent to participate 
from at least one domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the 
Department will automatically revoke the order without further review. 
See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii).
    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate 
from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in the Sunset Review must file 
complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation. The 
required contents of a substantive response, on an order-specific 
basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain 
information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties. 
Also, note that the Department's information requirements are distinct 
from the Commission's information requirements. Please consult the 
Department's regulations for information regarding the Department's 
conduct of Sunset Reviews.\1\ Please consult the Department's 
regulations at 19 CFR part 351 for definitions of terms and for other 
general information concerning antidumping and countervailing duty 
proceedings at the Department.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a 
number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for 
rebuttals to substantive responses to a notice of initiation was 
insufficient. This requirement was retained in the final sunset 
regulations at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(4). As provided in 19 CFR 
351.302(b), however, the Department will consider individual 
requests to extend that five-day deadline based upon a showing of 
good cause.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice of initiation is being published in accordance with 
section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218 (c).
