On November 30, 2010, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), the Department received an NSR request from Hanson. Hanson’s request was timely made on November 30, 2010, November being the annual anniversary month of the Antidumping Duty Order. Hanson certified that it is both the producer and exporter of the subject merchandise upon which the request was based. Hanson also submitted a public version of its request, which adequately summarized proprietary information and provided explanations as to why certain proprietary information is not capable of summarization. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), Hanson certified that it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’).

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 country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades from the PRC was 
published in the Federal Register on November 4, 2009. See Diamond 
Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People's Republic of China and the 
Republic of Korea: Antidumping Duty Orders, 74 FR 57145 (November 4, 
2009) (``Antidumping Duty Order''). On November 30, 2010, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), the Department received an NSR request from Hanson. Hanson's 
request was timely made on November 30, 2010, November being the annual 
anniversary month of the Antidumping Duty Order. Hanson certified that 
it is both the producer and exporter of the subject merchandise upon 
which the request was based. Hanson also submitted a public version of 
its request, which adequately summarized proprietary information and 
provided explanations as to why certain proprietary information is not 
capable of summarization.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(i), Hanson 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 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Hanson certified that, since the 
initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any 
Chinese exporter or producer who exported subject merchandise to the 
United States during the POI, including those respondents not 
individually examined during the POI. As required by 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Hanson also certified that its export activities 
were not controlled by the central government of the PRC.
    In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(A), (B) and (C), Hanson submitted documentation 
establishing the following: (1) The date on which Hanson first shipped 
subject merchandise for export to the United States; (2) the volume of 
its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an 
unaffiliated customer in the United States.

Period of Review

NSR is January 23, 2009, through October 31, 2010.\1\ For purposes of

Initiation of New Shipper Reviews

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1), we find that Hanson meets the threshold requirements for 
initiation of an NSR for the shipment of diamond sawblades from the PRC 
produced and exported by Hanson. See ``Memorandum to The File from 
Ricardo Martinez, Case Analyst, Initiation of AD New Shipper Review: 
Certain Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People's Republic 
of China (A-570-900),'' dated concurrently with this notice.
    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. See section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
    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 country-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 Hanson, which will include a section requesting 
information with regard to Hanson's export activities for separate 
rates purposes. The review will proceed if the response provides 
sufficient indication that Hanson is not subject to either de jure or 
de facto government control with respect to its exports 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 Hanson in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Hanson 
certified that it both produced and exported the subject merchandise, 
the sale of which is the basis for this NSR request, we will apply the 
bonding privilege to Hanson only for subject merchandise which Hanson 
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 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This 
initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i).
