Certain Preserved Mushrooms From the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 17836-17837 [2011-7619]

Download as PDF 17836 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 62 / Thursday, March 31, 2011 / Notices Background On June 30, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts (‘‘citric acid’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Review, 75 FR 37759 (June 30, 2010). On January 25, 2011, the Department published the extension of time limits for the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order. See Citric Acid and Certain Citrate Salts from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 4288 (January 25, 2011). This review covers the periods November 20, 2008, through May 19, 2009, and May 29, 2009, through April 30, 2010. The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than April 1, 2011. wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of the administrative review of citric acid from the PRC within this time limit. Specifically, additional time is needed to examine the respondents’ production process, factors of production (FOPs), and determine surrogate values with which to value FOPs. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the preliminary results of this review, which is currently due on April 1, 2011, by 60 days. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than May 31, 2011. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has received a request for a new shipper review (NSR) of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we are initiating an antidumping duty NSR of Zhangzhou Long Mountain Foods Co., Ltd. (Long Mountain). The period of review (POR) of this NSR is February 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011. DATES: Effective Date: March 31, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Fred Baker, Scott Hoefke, or Robert James, AD/CVD Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482–2924, (202) 482– 4947, or (202) 482–0649, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On February 19, 1999, the Department published the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC. See Notice of Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Preserved Mushrooms From the People’s Republic of China, 64 FR 8308 (February 19, 1999). Thus, the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC has a February anniversary month. On February 28, 2011, the Department received a request for an NSR from Long Mountain. In its request for review, Long Mountain identified itself as both exporter and producer of the subject merchandise. The Department determined that Long Mountain’s request contained certain deficiencies PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and requested that it correct its submission. See March 15, 2011 letter from Robert James, Program Manager, to Long Mountain. In accordance with the Department’s requests, Long Mountain corrected the problems in its initial submission in a revised submission dated March 18, 2011. For the purpose of initiating this NSR, the Department determines that Long Mountain’s request for an NSR was timely filed. Pursuant to the requirements set forth in section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2), Long Mountain certified that (1) It did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (POI) (see section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i)); (2) since the initiation of the investigation it has never been affiliated with any company that exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, including those companies not individually examined during the investigation (see section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A)); and (3) its export activities were not controlled by the central government of the PRC (see 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B)). Additionally, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Long Mountain submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which it first shipped subject merchandise to the United States; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customers in the United States. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(B), Long Mountain also provided the volume of its one subsequent shipment, dated January 30, 2011, which the company indicated was in transit to the United States. Initiation of Review Based on information on the record, and in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we find the request Long Mountain submitted meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for initiation of an NSR. See Memorandum to the File through Richard Weible, ‘‘Initiation of AD New Shipper Review: Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China (A–570– 851),’’ dated March 31, 2011. Accordingly, we are initiating an NSR of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC produced and exported by Long Mountain. This review covers the period February 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011. We intend to issue the preliminary results of this review no later than 180 days after the date on which this review is initiated, and the E:\FR\FM\31MR1.SGM 31MR1 wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 62 / Thursday, March 31, 2011 / Notices final results within 90 days after the date on which we issue the preliminary results. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(h)(i). In cases involving non-market economies, the Department requires 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. See, generally, Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 75 FR 72794 (November 26, 2010), unchanged in Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 76 FR 9747 (February 22, 2011). Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to Long Mountain that will include a separate rates section. This review will proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that Long Mountain is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its shipments of preserved mushrooms. Upon initiation, we will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of any unliquidated entries of subject merchandise produced and exported by Long Mountain and will instruct the CBP 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 certain entries of the subject merchandise produced and exported by Long Mountain in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Long Mountain certified that it both produced and exported the subject merchandise, the sales of which form the basis for its NSR request, we will instruct CBP to permit the use of a bond only for entries of subject merchandise where Long Mountain acted both as producer and exporter. To assist in its analysis of the bona fides of Long Mountain’s sales, upon initiation of this NSR, the Department will require Long Mountain to submit on an ongoing basis complete transaction information concerning any sales of subject merchandise to the United States that were made subsequent to the POR. Interested parties requiring access to business proprietary information in this NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306.

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has received a 
request for a new shipper review (NSR) of the antidumping duty order on 
certain preserved mushrooms from the People's Republic of China (PRC). 
In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we are initiating an 
antidumping duty NSR of Zhangzhou Long Mountain Foods Co., Ltd. (Long 
Mountain). The period of review (POR) of this NSR is February 1, 2010, 
through January 31, 2011.

DATES: Effective Date: March 31, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Fred Baker, Scott Hoefke, or Robert 
James, AD/CVD Operations, Office 7, Import Administration,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 19, 1999, the Department published the antidumping duty 
order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC. See Notice of 
Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Preserved Mushrooms From the People's 
Republic of China, 64 FR 8308 (February 19, 1999). Thus, the 
antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC has 
a February anniversary month. On February 28, 2011, the Department 
received a request for an NSR from Long Mountain. In its request for 
review, Long Mountain identified itself as both exporter and producer 
of the subject merchandise. The Department determined that Long 
Mountain's request contained certain deficiencies and requested that it 
correct its submission. See March 15, 2011 letter from Robert James, 
Program Manager, to Long Mountain. In accordance with the Department's 
requests, Long Mountain corrected the problems in its initial 
submission in a revised submission dated March 18, 2011. For the 
purpose of initiating this NSR, the Department determines that Long 
Mountain's request for an NSR was timely filed.
    Pursuant to the requirements set forth in section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2), Long Mountain certified that (1) 
It did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the 
period of investigation (POI) (see section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i)); (2) since the initiation of the 
investigation it has never been affiliated with any company that 
exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, 
including those companies not individually examined during the 
investigation (see section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A)); and (3) its export activities were not 
controlled by the central government of the PRC (see 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B)). Additionally, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(iv), Long Mountain submitted documentation establishing 
the following: (1) The date on which it first shipped subject 
merchandise to the United States; (2) the volume of its first shipment; 
and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customers in the 
United States. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(B), Long 
Mountain also provided the volume of its one subsequent shipment, dated 
January 30, 2011, which the company indicated was in transit to the 
United States.

Initiation of Review

    Based on information on the record, and in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we find the request Long 
Mountain submitted meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for 
initiation of an NSR. See Memorandum to the File through Richard 
Weible, ``Initiation of AD New Shipper Review: Certain Preserved 
Mushrooms from the People's Republic of China (A-570-851),'' dated 
March 31, 2011. Accordingly, we are initiating an NSR of the 
antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC 
produced and exported by Long Mountain. This review covers the period 
February 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011. We intend to issue the 
preliminary results of this review no later than 180 days after the 
date on which this review is initiated, and the

[[Page 17837]]

final results within 90 days after the date on which we issue the 
preliminary results. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(h)(i).
    In cases involving non-market economies, the Department requires 
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. See, generally, Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's 
Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper 
Reviews, 75 FR 72794 (November 26, 2010), unchanged in Wooden Bedroom 
Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 76 FR 9747 (February 22, 2011). 
Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to Long Mountain that will 
include a separate rates section. This review will proceed if the 
response provides sufficient indication that Long Mountain is not 
subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect 
to its shipments of preserved mushrooms.
    Upon initiation, we will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to suspend liquidation of any unliquidated entries of subject 
merchandise produced and exported by Long Mountain and will instruct 
the CBP 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 certain entries of the subject merchandise produced and 
exported by Long Mountain in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Long Mountain certified that 
it both produced and exported the subject merchandise, the sales of 
which form the basis for its NSR request, we will instruct CBP to 
permit the use of a bond only for entries of subject merchandise where 
Long Mountain acted both as producer and exporter.
    To assist in its analysis of the bona fides of Long Mountain's 
sales, upon initiation of this NSR, the Department will require Long 
Mountain to submit on an ongoing basis complete transaction information 
concerning any sales of subject merchandise to the United States that 
were made subsequent to the POR.
    Interested parties requiring access to business 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 notice serves as a reminder that any party submitting factual 
information in an AD/CVD proceeding must certify to the accuracy and 
completeness of that information. See Section 782(b) of the Act. 
Parties are hereby reminded that revised certification requirements are 
in effect for company/government officials as well as their 
representatives in all AD/CVD investigations or proceedings initiated 
on or after March 14, 2011. See Certification of Factual Information to 
Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Proceedings: Interim Final Rule, 76 FR 7491 (February 10, 2011) 
(Interim Final Rule) amending 19 CFR 351.303(g)(1) and (2). The formats 
for the revised certifications are provided at the end of the Interim 
Final Rule. The Department intends to reject factual submissions in 
investigations/proceedings initiated on or after March 14, 2011 if the 
submitting party does not comply with the revised certification 
requirements.
