National Sea Grant Advisory Board; Meeting, 4299-4300 [2011-1418]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 16 / Tuesday, January 25, 2011 / Notices foregoing list of vehicles and equipment generally have in common that they are used for hauling, towing, lifting, and/or loading a wide variety of equipment and materials in agricultural, construction and industrial settings. Such vehicles and equipment, and the descriptions contained in the footnotes are illustrative of the types of vehicles and equipment that use certain OTR tires, but are not necessarily all-inclusive. While the physical characteristics of certain OTR tires will vary depending on the specific applications and conditions for which the tires are designed (e.g., tread pattern and depth), all of the tires within the scope have in common that they are designed for offroad and off-highway use. Except as discussed below, OTR tires included in the scope of the order range in size (rim diameter) generally but not exclusively from 8 inches to 54 inches. The tires may be either tube-type 20 or tubeless, radial or non-radial, and intended for sale either to original equipment manufacturers or the replacement market. The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings: 4011.20.10.25, 4011.20.10.35, 4011.20.50.30, 4011.20.50.50, 4011.61.00.00, 4011.62.00.00, 4011.63.00.00, 4011.69.00.00, 4011.92.00.00, 4011.93.40.00, 4011.93.80.00, 4011.94.40.00, and 4011.94.80.00. While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope is dispositive. Specifically excluded from the scope are new pneumatic tires designed, manufactured and offered for sale primarily for on-highway or on-road use, including passenger cars, race cars, station wagons, sport utility vehicles, minivans, mobile homes, motorcycles, bicycles, on-road or on-highway trailers, light trucks, and trucks and buses. Such tires generally have in common that the symbol ‘‘DOT’’ must appear on the sidewall, certifying that the tire conforms to applicable motor vehicle safety standards. Such excluded tires may also have the following designations that are used by the Tire and Rim Association: mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Prefix Letter Designations • P—Identifies a tire intended primarily for service on passenger cars; 20 While tube-type tires are subject to the scope of this proceeding, tubes and flaps are not subject merchandise and therefore are not covered by the scope of this proceeding, regardless of the manner in which they are sold (e.g., sold with or separately from subject merchandise). VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:39 Jan 24, 2011 Jkt 223001 • LT—Identifies a tire intended primarily for service on light trucks; and, • ST—Identifies a special tire for trailers in highway service. Suffix Letter Designations • TR—Identifies a tire for service on trucks, buses, and other vehicles with rims having specified rim diameter of nominal plus 0.156″ or plus 0.250″; • MH—Identifies tires for Mobile Homes; • HC—Identifies a heavy duty tire designated for use on ‘‘HC’’ 15″ tapered rims used on trucks, buses, and other vehicles. This suffix is intended to differentiate among tires for light trucks, and other vehicles or other services, which use a similar designation. • Example: 8R17.5 LT, 8R17.5 HC; • LT—Identifies light truck tires for service on trucks, buses, trailers, and multipurpose passenger vehicles used in nominal highway service; and • MC—Identifies tires and rims for motorcycles. The following types of tires are also excluded from the scope: pneumatic tires that are not new, including recycled or retreaded tires and used tires; non-pneumatic tires, including solid rubber tires; tires of a kind designed for use on aircraft, all-terrain vehicles, and vehicles for turf, lawn and garden, golf and trailer applications. Also excluded from the scope are radial and bias tires of a kind designed for use in mining and construction vehicles and equipment that have a rim diameter equal to or exceeding 39 inches. Such tires may be distinguished from other tires of similar size by the number of plies that the construction and mining tires contain (minimum of 16) and the weight of such tires (minimum 1500 pounds). Rescission of Changed Circumstances Review Although it does not specifically reference changed circumstances reviews, section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party requesting the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The Department’s practice has been to apply this 90-day deadline to changed circumstances review rescission requests.21 However, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) also provides that the Department may extend the 90-day 21 See, e.g., Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Notice of Rescission of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 75 FR 51756 (August 23, 2010). PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4299 time limit for withdrawing the request for an administrative review if we determine that it is reasonable to do so. In this case, Atlas Tire requested a rescission of this review on December 8, 2010, which is beyond 90 days from the date of initiation. However, we note that no interested party, including the petitioner, has objected to Atlas Tire’s rescission request. Additionally, the Department has not expended significant resources conducting this review. Therefore, we determine that it is reasonable to extend the 90-day time limit in this instance. Consequently, the Department has accepted Atlas Tire’s rescission request in this case as timely and is now rescinding this CCR. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to suspend entries of subject merchandise at the appropriate cash deposit rate for all entries of OTR tires from the PRC. Notification This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APOs’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 notice is published in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.216. Dated: January 14, 2011.
