SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES Background On May 14, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published its preliminary results of review of the antidumping order on chlorinated isocyanurates from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).1 This review covers the period June 1, 2008, through May 31, 2009. The final results of review are currently due no later than October 12, 2010. final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time period to a maximum of 180 days. On September 17, 2010, the Department published a notice extending the time limit for the final results of this administrative review by 30 days, i.e., until October 12, 2010.2 The Department now finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the administrative review of chlorinated isocyanurates from the PRC before the current deadline due to complicated surrogate value issues, including the most appropriate methodology for valuing labor, for the final results. We find that additional time is needed to complete these final results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the final results of the administrative review by an additional 30 days. As a result, these final results are due on Wednesday, November 10, 2010, 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: October 1, 2010. Susan H.

See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, India, and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews, 75 FR 17693 (Apr. 7, 2010). On July 9, 2010, the Department selected respondents for individual examination in the India and Thailand reviews and issued questionnaires to them.1 See the July 9, 2010, memoranda from Elizabeth Eastwood to James Maeder entitled, ‘‘2009–2010 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Selection of Respondents for Individual Review,’’ and ‘‘2009–2010 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Selection of Respondents for Individual Review.’’ We received responses to these questionnaires in August and September 2010. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period. The deadline for the preliminary results of these administrative reviews is currently November 1, 2010.2 The Department determines that completion of the preliminary results of these reviews within the statutory time period is not practicable because it is examining: (1) An allegation of a particular market situation for the respondents in Thailand; and (2) a cost allegation from the petitioner for Apex Exports in India. 1 The Department rescinded the administrative review of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil on June 10, 2010.

SUMMARY: On June 15, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on purified carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) from Mexico. See Purified Carboxymethylcellulose From Mexico: Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 33775 (June 15, 2010) (Preliminary Results). The review covers one producer/exporter, Quimica Amtex, S.A. de C.V. (Amtex). The period of review (POR) is July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009. We invited interested parties to comment on our Preliminary Results. The Department received comments concerning our Preliminary Results from Amtex only. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made one change in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the Preliminary Results. The final weighted-average dumping margin for the reviewed firm is listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ DATES: Effective Date: October 7, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mark Flessner or Robert James, AD/CVD Operations Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:42 Oct 06, 2010 Jkt 223001 Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–6312 or (202) 482– 0649, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On June 15, 2010, the Department published the preliminary results of this review in the Federal Register. See Preliminary Results. We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. Since the Preliminary Results, we received a case brief from respondent Amtex on July 15, 2010. See ‘‘Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from Mexico— A–201–834 (Administrative Review 7/1/ 2008–6/30/2009): Case Brief,’’ dated July 15, 2010, at 1–2 (Amtex Case Brief). No brief was received from petitioner, Aqualon Company (a division of Hercules Incorporated), nor did petitioner file a rebuttal to Amtex’s case brief. Amtex originally reported the quantity unit of measure for some of its U.S. sales as ‘‘2,’’ indicating sales in pounds. See Amtex’s Section C Questionnaire Response dated October 29, 2010, at pages C–53 to C–56. For such sales, Amtex contends, the Department should adjust for packing expenses using per-pound amounts. See Amtex Case Brief at 1–2. In its case brief, Amtex alleged that the Department had failed to make a conversion from kilograms to pounds for those sales originally reported in pounds in the U.S. market database when adjusting for packing expenses. Id. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is all purified carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), sometimes also referred to as purified sodium CMC, polyanionic cellulose, or cellulose gum, which is a white to off-white, non-toxic, odorless, biodegradable powder, comprising sodium CMC that has been refined and purified to a minimum assay of 90 percent. Purified CMC does not include unpurified or crude CMC, CMC Fluidized Polymer Suspensions, and CMC that is cross-linked through heat treatment. Purified CMC is CMC that has undergone one or more purification operations which, at a minimum, reduce the remaining salt and other by-product portion of the product to less than ten percent. The merchandise subject to this order is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at subheading 3912.31.00. This tariff classification is provided for convenience and customs purposes; PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 however, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of Amtex’s comments, we have made one change to the margin calculations. After analyzing the databases and the programming used in the Preliminary Results, we agreed with Amtex’s contention concerning the conversion of packing costs reported in pounds. Therefore, we added one line of programming to the comparison market program stipulating that if the quantity unit reporting is in pounds (i.e., ‘‘2’’), then an adjustment to the comparison market program is appropriate. See Memorandum to the File from Mark Flessner, Case Analyst, through Robert James, Program Manager, entitled ‘‘Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from Mexico: Final Determination Analysis Memorandum for Quimica Amtex, S.A. de C.V.,’’ dated September 27, 2010. Because the only comments received dealt with the singular programming issue, we have not included a separate Issues and Decisions memorandum to accompany this notice of final results. Final Results of Review The final weighted-average dumping margin for the period July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009, is as follows: Producer/exporter Quimica Amtex, S.A. de C.V .... Weightedaverage margin (percentage) 0.83 Assessment The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We have calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the sales. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 41 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. See 19 CFR 356.8(a). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 E:\FR\FM\07OCN1.SGM 07OCN1

U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-3874.

Background

    On April 7, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of the administrative reviews of the 
antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil, 
India, and Thailand covering the period February 1, 2009, through 
January 31, 2010. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, 
India, and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews, 75 
FR 17693 (Apr. 7, 2010).
    On July 9, 2010, the Department selected respondents for individual 
examination in the India and Thailand reviews and issued questionnaires 
to them.\1\ See the July 9, 2010, memoranda from Elizabeth Eastwood to 
James Maeder entitled, ``2009-2010 Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Selection of 
Respondents for Individual Review,'' and ``2009-2010 Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: 
Selection of Respondents for Individual Review.'' We received responses 
to these questionnaires in August and September 2010.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Department rescinded the administrative review of 
certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil on June 10, 2010. See 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil: Notice of Rescission of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 32915 (June 10, 2010).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is 
requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period. The 
deadline for the preliminary results of these administrative reviews is 
currently November 1, 2010.\2\ The Department determines that 
completion of the preliminary results of these reviews within the 
statutory time period is not practicable because it is examining: (1) 
An allegation of a particular market situation for the respondents in 
Thailand; and (2) a cost allegation from the petitioner for Apex 
Exports in India.

[[Page 62100]]

The Department thus requires additional time to conduct its analysis 
for each of these reviews. Therefore, in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the 
preliminary results of these reviews until March 1, 2011. The final 
results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the 
preliminary results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The original due date for the preliminary results, October 
31, 2010, is a Sunday.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice is published pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
