Materials Processing Equipment Technical Advisory Committee; Notice of Partially Closed Meeting, 66356-66357 [2010-27219]

Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES 66356 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 208 / Thursday, October 28, 2010 / Notices Salvi using glycine imported into India from the PRC. We find that the information presented by the domestic interested parties regarding this criterion supports their request to initiate an anti-circumvention inquiry. The Department believes that the domestic interested parties sufficiently addressed the factors described by sections 781(b)(1)(C) and 781(b)(2) of the Act regarding whether the processing of glycine in India is minor or insignificant. Specifically, in support of its argument, the domestic interested parties relied on information from Indian Glycine, on the domestic interested parties’ calculations based on their estimated cost of production and cost of processing and repackaging of PRC-origin glycine, allegedly performed by Paras, Salvi, and AICO, and information in the Market Research Report as described above. Thus, we find that the information presented by the domestic interested parties supports their request, as supplemented, to initiate an anti-circumvention inquiry. In particular, for the purposes of initiation, we find that the domestic interested parties have sufficiently supported their allegations that: (1) Little investment has been made by either Paras, Salvi, or AICO in their respective processing of PRC glycine; (2) Paras, Salvi, and AICO perform processing and repackaging of the lower-grade PRC glycine, which are technologically mature processes that do not require research and development by these companies; (3) the mere processing of the lower-grade glycine through refinement, purification, and repackaging does not alter the fundamental characteristics of the glycine, or whether it is subject to the scope of the PRC Glycine Order; (4) Paras’s, Salvi’s, and AICO’s facilities for processing and repackaging PRC glycine do not require the typically capitalintensive production facilities needed to manufacture glycine; and (5) refining and repackaging of PRC glycine represents a small proportion of the value of the merchandise exported to the United States. Our analysis will focus on Paras’s, Salvi’s, and AICO’s processing operations in India and, in the context of this proceeding, we will closely examine the extent of processing done in India, as well as Paras’s, Salvi’s, and AICO’s relationships with glycine suppliers in the PRC. With respect to the value of the merchandise produced in the PRC, pursuant to section 781(b)(1)(D) of the Act, the domestic interested parties relied on their information and arguments presented in the ‘‘minor or insignificant’’ portion of VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:13 Oct 27, 2010 Jkt 223001 their anti-circumvention request, as supplemented, to indicate that the value of PRC glycine may be significant relative to the total value of the glycine processed and repackaged in India and then exported to the United States. We find that the information provided adequately addresses this factor, as discussed above, for the purposes of initiating an anti-circumvention inquiry. Finally, the domestic interested parties argue that, pursuant to section 781(b)(3) of the Act, the Department should also consider the pattern of trade, affiliation, and subsequent import volumes as factors in determining whether to initiate an anticircumvention inquiry. The export and import data submitted by the domestic interested parties suggests that imports of glycine from the PRC into India rose significantly in recent years. Accordingly, based on the domestic interested parties’ allegations, as supplemented, we have determined that domestic interested parties have provided a sufficient basis to initiate an anti-circumvention inquiry concerning the PRC Glycine Order, pursuant to section 781(b) of the Act. These anticircumvention inquiries pertain solely to Paras, Salvi, and AICO. If, within sufficient time, the Department receives a formal request from an interested party regarding potential anti-circumvention of the PRC Glycine Order by other Indian companies, we will consider conducting additional inquiries concurrently. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(l)(2), if the Department issues a preliminary affirmative determination, we will then instruct CBP to suspend liquidation and require a cash deposit of estimated duties on the merchandise. The Department will, following consultation with interested parties, establish a schedule for questionnaires and comments on the issues. The Department intends to issue its final determination within 300 days of the date of publication of this initiation. See section 781(f) of the Act. This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: October 22, 2010. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
