Changes Since the Preliminary Results Garofalo Regarding Garofalo, based on our analysis of the comments received, we made the following changes in calculating the dumping margin: (1) We PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 81213 relied on the revised and corrected charts and graphs submitted by Garofalo in conducting our quarterly cost linkage analysis and determined that application of the Department’s quarterly costing methodology was not warranted, and, as a result, changed the finding made in the Preliminary Results; (2) we increased Garofalo’s cost of manufacturing (COM) to account for the unreconciled difference between the COM from its normal books and records and the reported COM; and, (3) we used the reported allocation methodology to distribute other losses between fixed overhead and general and administrative expenses (G&A) which Garofalo excluded from the reported costs. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. For further details on how these changes were applied in the calculation, see ´ Memorandum from Angie Sepulveda, Senior Accountant, to Neal M. Halper, Director, Office of Accounting, ‘‘Cost of Production and Constructed Value Calculation Adjustments for the Final Results-Pastificio Lucio Garofalo S.p.A.,’’ dated December 14, 2010 (Garofalo Cost Calculation Memo). Granoro Regarding Granoro, for the final results we increased the denominator of the G&A and financial expense ratios by the amount of the expenses for testing of pasta recorded in the 2008 audited financial statements. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 4. For further details on how these changes were applied in the calculation, see Memorandum from Ernest Z. Gziryan, Senior Accountant, to Neal M. Halper, Director, Office of Accounting, ‘‘Cost of Production and Constructed Value Calculation Adjustments for the Final Results—Pastificio Attilio Mastromauro—Pasta Granoro S.r.L.’’ dated December 14, 2010 (Granoro Cost Calculation Memo). Final Results of Review We determine that the following weighted-average margins exist for the period July 8, 2008, through June 30, 2009: Manufacturer/exporter Garofalo ................................ Granoro ................................. Margin (percent) 3.61 0.80 Duty Assessment The Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department E:\FR\FM\27DEN1.SGM 27DEN1 81214 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 247 / Monday, December 27, 2010 / Notices erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with NOTICES calculates an assessment rate for each importer of the subject merchandise for each respondent. Upon issuance of the final results of this administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.5 percent), the Department will issue appraisement instructions directly to CBP to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries. To determine whether the duty assessment rates covering the period were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), for each respondent we calculated importer (or customer)specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to that importer or customer and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to that importer (or customer). Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, and the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we apply the assessment rate to the entered value of the importer’s/customer’s entries during the review period. Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis and we do not have reliable entered values, we calculate a per-unit assessment rate by aggregating the dumping duties due for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total quantity sold to that importer (or customer). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the respondent for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). Cash Deposit Requirements The following antidumping duty deposit rates will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of pasta from Italy entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as provided VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:15 Dec 23, 2010 Jkt 223001 for by section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): (1) If the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, but was covered in a previous review or the original less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigation, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate established for the most recent period; (2) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise; and (3) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered by this review, a prior review, or the LTFV investigation, the cash deposit rate will be 15.45 percent, the all-others rate established in the Section 129 determination. See Implementation of the Findings of the WTO Panel in US—Zeroing (EC): Notice of Determinations Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and Revocations and Partial Revocations of Certain Antidumping Duty Orders, 72 FR 25261 (May 4, 2007). These cash deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent increase in antidumping duties by the amount of antidumping and/or countervailing duties reimbursed. Notification Regarding APOs This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(5). Timely written notification of the return/ destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This administrative review and notice are in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

Garofalo

    Regarding Garofalo, based on our analysis of the comments received, 
we made the following changes in calculating the dumping margin: (1) We 
relied on the revised and corrected charts and graphs submitted by 
Garofalo in conducting our quarterly cost linkage analysis and 
determined that application of the Department's quarterly costing 
methodology was not warranted, and, as a result, changed the finding 
made in the Preliminary Results; (2) we increased Garofalo's cost of 
manufacturing (COM) to account for the unreconciled difference between 
the COM from its normal books and records and the reported COM; and, 
(3) we used the reported allocation methodology to distribute other 
losses between fixed overhead and general and administrative expenses 
(G&A) which Garofalo excluded from the reported costs. See Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. For further details on how these 
changes were applied in the calculation, see Memorandum from Angie 
Sep[uacute]lveda, Senior Accountant, to Neal M. Halper, Director, 
Office of Accounting, ``Cost of Production and Constructed Value 
Calculation Adjustments for the Final Results-Pastificio Lucio Garofalo 
S.p.A.,'' dated December 14, 2010 (Garofalo Cost Calculation Memo).

Granoro

    Regarding Granoro, for the final results we increased the 
denominator of the G&A and financial expense ratios by the amount of 
the expenses for testing of pasta recorded in the 2008 audited 
financial statements. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 4. 
For further details on how these changes were applied in the 
calculation, see Memorandum from Ernest Z. Gziryan, Senior Accountant, 
to Neal M. Halper, Director, Office of Accounting, ``Cost of Production 
and Constructed Value Calculation Adjustments for the Final Results--
Pastificio Attilio Mastromauro--Pasta Granoro S.r.L.'' dated December 
14, 2010 (Granoro Cost Calculation Memo).

Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average margins exist for 
the period July 8, 2008, through June 30, 2009:

Duty Assessment

    The Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department

[[Page 81214]]

calculates an assessment rate for each importer of the subject 
merchandise for each respondent. Upon issuance of the final results of 
this administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates 
calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 
0.5 percent), the Department will issue appraisement instructions 
directly to CBP to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries.
    To determine whether the duty assessment rates covering the period 
were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), for each respondent we calculated importer (or 
customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins 
calculated for all U.S. sales to that importer or customer and dividing 
this amount by the total entered value of the sales to that importer 
(or customer). Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rate 
is greater than de minimis, and the respondent has reported reliable 
entered values, we apply the assessment rate to the entered value of 
the importer's/customer's entries during the review period. Where an 
importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rate is greater than de 
minimis and we do not have reliable entered values, we calculate a per-
unit assessment rate by aggregating the dumping duties due for all U.S. 
sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the 
total quantity sold to that importer (or customer).
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This 
clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR produced by the respondent for which it did not know its 
merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others 
rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in 
the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following antidumping duty deposit rates will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of pasta from Italy entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act): (1) If the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, 
but was covered in a previous review or the original less-than-fair-
value (LTFV) investigation, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific rate established for the most recent period; (2) 
if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, 
or the LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the subject merchandise; and (3) if neither the 
exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered by this review, a prior 
review, or the LTFV investigation, the cash deposit rate will be 15.45 
percent, the all-others rate established in the Section 129 
determination. See Implementation of the Findings of the WTO Panel in 
US--Zeroing (EC): Notice of Determinations Under Section 129 of the 
Uruguay Round Agreements Act and Revocations and Partial Revocations of 
Certain Antidumping Duty Orders, 72 FR 25261 (May 4, 2007). These cash 
deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties 
prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing 
duties occurred and the subsequent increase in antidumping duties by 
the amount of antidumping and/or countervailing duties reimbursed.

Notification Regarding APOs

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(5). Timely written 
notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion 
to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply 
with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    This administrative review and notice are in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: December 14, 2010.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
