Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 81 / Wednesday, April 27, 2011 / Notices Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these amended final results of review. For assessment purposes, where possible, we calculated importer-specific assessment rates for subject ironing tables from the PRC via ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of the dumping margins calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for any entries made on or after March 21, 2011, the date of publication of the Final Results, for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Foshan Shunde the cash deposit rate will be the amended 23.61 percent shown above; (2) for Since Hardware, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 70. 05 percent; (3) for previouslyinvestigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (4) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 157.68 percent; and (5) for all nonPRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Notification of Interested Parties This notice also 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 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:36 Apr 26, 2011 Jkt 223001 reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 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 violation that is subject to sanction. We are issuing and publishing these amended final results of review and notice in accordance with sections 751(h) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: April 20, 2011. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with March anniversary dates. In accordance with the Department’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. DATES: Effective Date: April 27, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sheila E.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with March anniversary dates. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports during the period of review (‘‘POR’’). We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (‘‘APO’’) to all parties having an APO within seven days of publication of this initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the applicable review. Separate Rates In proceedings involving non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) countries, the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the Department’s policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a separate rate. E:\FR\FM\27APN1.SGM 27APN1 23546 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 81 / Wednesday, April 27, 2011 / Notices To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from government control of its export activities to be entitled to a separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People’s Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991), as amplified by Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from the People’s Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2,1994). In accordance with the separate-rates criteria, the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME cases only if respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto government control over export activities. All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate-rate status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must complete, as appropriate, either a separate-rate application or certification, as described below. For these administrative reviews, in order to demonstrate separate-rate eligibility, the Department requires entities for whom a review was requested, that were assigned a separate rate in the most recent segment of this proceeding in which they participated, to certify that they continue to meet the criteria for obtaining a separate rate. The Separate Rate Certification form will be available on the Department’s Web site at http://www.trade.gov/ia on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the certification, please follow the ‘‘Instructions for Filing the Certification’’ in the Separate Rate Certification. Separate Rate Certifications are due to the Department no later than 60 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies equally to NMEowned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States. Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a completed segment of the proceeding 1 should timely file a Separate Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this proceeding. In addition, companies that received a separate rate in a completed segment of the proceeding that have subsequently made changes, including, but not limited to, changes to corporate structure, acquisitions of new companies or facilities, or changes to their official company name 2, should timely file a Separate Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this proceeding. The Separate Rate Status Application will be available on the Department’s Web site at http://www.trade.gov/ia on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the Separate Rate Status Application, refer to the instructions contained in the application. Separate Rate Status Applications are due to the Department no later than 60 calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Separate Rate Status Application applies equally to NMEowned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States. For exporters and producers who submit a separate-rate status application or certification and subsequently are selected as mandatory respondents, these exporters and producers will no longer be eligible for separate-rate status unless they respond to all parts of the questionnaire as mandatory respondents. Initiation of Reviews In accordance with section 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating administrative reviews of the following antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings. We intend to issue the final results of these reviews not later than March 31, 2012.

The request must include the name(s) of the exporter or producer for which the inquiry is requested. For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ‘‘gap’’ period, of the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the POR.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES The Petitions On March 31, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) received petitions concerning imports of galvanized steel wire from the PRC and Mexico filed in proper form on behalf of Davis Wire Corporation (‘‘Davis Wire’’), Johnstown Wire Technologies, Inc., Mid-South Wire Company, Inc., National Standard, LLC, and Oklahoma Steel & Wire Company, Inc., (collectively, ‘‘Petitioners’’). See Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping Duties on Galvanized Steel Wire from Mexico and Antidumping and Countervailing Duties on Galvanized Steel Wire from the People’s Republic of China filed on March 31, 2011 (the ‘‘Petitions’’). On April 6, 2011, the Department issued a request for additional information and VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:36 Apr 26, 2011 Jkt 223001 clarification of certain areas of the Petitions. Petitioners filed a response to this request on April 11, 2011 (hereinafter, ‘‘Supplement to the PRC Petition,’’ ‘‘Supplement to the Mexico Petition,’’ and ‘‘Supplement to the AD/ CVD Petitions,’’ respectively). Based on a conversation with Department officials, Petitioners filed a further response on April 14, 2011 (hereinafter, ‘‘Second Supplement to the AD/CVD Petitions’’). In addition they provided the Department with an additional required certification on April 15, 2011. See Certification Letter filed April 15, 2011. In accordance with section 732(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), Petitioners allege that imports of galvanized steel wire from the PRC and Mexico are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, within the meaning of section 731 of the Act, and that such imports are materially injuring, or threatening material injury to, an industry in the United States. The Department finds that Petitioners filed the Petitions on behalf of the domestic industry because Petitioners are interested parties as defined in section 771(9)(C) of the Act and have demonstrated sufficient industry support with respect to the antidumping duty investigations that Petitioners are requesting that the Department initiate (see ‘‘Determination of Industry Support for the Petitions’’ section below). Period of Investigation The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) for the investigation involving the PRC is July 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010. The POI for the investigation involving Mexico is January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010. See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1). Scope of Investigations The product covered by these investigations is galvanized steel wire from the PRC and Mexico. For a full description of the scope of the investigations, please see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigations,’’ in Appendix I of this notice. Comments on Scope of Investigations During our review of the Petitions, we discussed the scope with Petitioners to ensure that it is an accurate reflection of the products for which the domestic industry is seeking relief. Moreover, as discussed in the preamble to the Department’s regulations (Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997)), we are setting aside a period for interested parties to raise issues PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 regarding product coverage. The Department encourages all interested parties to submit such comments by May 10, 2011, twenty calendar days from the signature date of this notice. All comments must be filed on the records of the PRC and Mexico antidumping duty investigations as well as the PRC countervailing duty investigation. Comments should be addressed to Import Administration’s APO/Dockets Unit, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. The period of scope consultations is intended to provide the Department with ample opportunity to consider all comments and to consult with parties prior to the issuance of the preliminary determinations. Comments on Product Characteristics for Antidumping Duty Questionnaires We are requesting comments from interested parties regarding the appropriate physical characteristics of galvanized steel wire to be reported in response to the Department’s antidumping questionnaires. This information will be used to identify the key physical characteristics of the subject merchandise in order to more accurately report the relevant factors and costs of production, as well as to develop appropriate product comparison criteria. Interested parties may provide any information or comments that they feel are relevant to the development of an accurate listing of physical characteristics. Specifically, they may provide comments as to which characteristics are appropriate to use as 1) general product characteristics and 2) the product comparison criteria. We note that it is not always appropriate to use all product characteristics as product comparison criteria. We base product comparison criteria on meaningful commercial differences among products. In other words, while there may be some physical product characteristics utilized by manufacturers to describe galvanized steel wire, it may be that only a select few product characteristics take into account commercially meaningful physical characteristics. In addition, interested parties may comment on the order in which the physical characteristics should be used in product matching. Generally, the Department attempts to list the most important physical characteristics first and the least important characteristics last.

Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') has received 
requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders and findings with March anniversary dates. 
In accordance with the Department's regulations, we are initiating 
those administrative reviews.

DATES: Effective Date: April 27, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sheila E. Forbes, Office of AD/CVD 
Operations, Customs Unit, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482-
4697.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders and findings with March anniversary dates.
    All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, 
certifications, or comments or actions by the Department discussed 
below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting 
time.

Notice of No Sales

    If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no 
exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (``POR''), it 
must notify the Department within 60 days of publication of this notice 
in the Federal Register. All submissions must be made in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.303 and are subject to verification in accordance with 
section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''). Six 
copies of the submission should be submitted to the Assistant Secretary 
for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Room 
1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, 
NW., Washington, DC 20230. Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.303(f)(3)(ii), a copy of each request must be served on every party 
on the Department's service list.

Respondent Selection

    In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination for administrative reviews, the Department 
intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') data for U.S. imports during the period of review 
(``POR''). We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative 
Protective Order (``APO'') to all parties having an APO within seven 
days of publication of this initiation notice and to make our decision 
regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of this 
Federal Register notice. The Department invites comments regarding the 
CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the 
CBP data on the record of the applicable review.

Separate Rates

    In proceedings involving non-market economy (``NME'') countries, 
the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies 
within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should 
be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the 
Department's policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to 
an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an 
exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to 
be entitled to a separate rate.

[[Page 23546]]

    To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from 
government control of its export activities to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the 
subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination 
of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People's Republic 
of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991), as amplified by Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from 
the People's Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2,1994). In accordance 
with the separate-rates criteria, the Department assigns separate rates 
to companies in NME cases only if respondents can demonstrate the 
absence of both de jure and de facto government control over export 
activities.
    All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate-rate 
status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must 
complete, as appropriate, either a separate-rate application or 
certification, as described below. For these administrative reviews, in 
order to demonstrate separate-rate eligibility, the Department requires 
entities for whom a review was requested, that were assigned a separate 
rate in the most recent segment of this proceeding in which they 
participated, to certify that they continue to meet the criteria for 
obtaining a separate rate. The Separate Rate Certification form will be 
available on the Department's Web site at http://www.trade.gov/ia on 
the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding 
to the certification, please follow the ``Instructions for Filing the 
Certification'' in the Separate Rate Certification. Separate Rate 
Certifications are due to the Department no later than 60 calendar days 
after publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and 
requirement for submitting a Certification applies equally to NME-owned 
firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and 
export subject merchandise to the United States.
    Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a 
completed segment of the proceeding \1\ should timely file a Separate 
Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this 
proceeding. In addition, companies that received a separate rate in a 
completed segment of the proceeding that have subsequently made 
changes, including, but not limited to, changes to corporate structure, 
acquisitions of new companies or facilities, or changes to their 
official company name \2\, should timely file a Separate Rate 
Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this 
proceeding. The Separate Rate Status Application will be available on 
the Department's Web site at http://www.trade.gov/ia on the date of 
publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the 
Separate Rate Status Application, refer to the instructions contained 
in the application. Separate Rate Status Applications are due to the 
Department no later than 60 calendar days of publication of this 
Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a 
Separate Rate Status Application applies equally to NME-owned firms, 
wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase and 
export subject merchandise to the United States.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Such entities include entities that have not participated in 
the proceeding, entities that were preliminarily granted a separate 
rate in any currently incomplete segment of the proceeding (e.g., an 
ongoing administrative review, new shipper review, etc.) and 
entities that lost their separate rate in the most recently complete 
segment of the proceeding in which they participated.
    \2\ Only changes to the official company name, rather than trade 
names, need to be addressed via a Separate Rate Application. 
Information regarding new trade names may be submitted via a 
Separate Rate Certification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For exporters and producers who submit a separate-rate status 
application or certification and subsequently are selected as mandatory 
respondents, these exporters and producers will no longer be eligible 
for separate-rate status unless they respond to all parts of the

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    During any administrative review covering all or part of a period 
falling between the first and second or third and fourth anniversary of 
the publication of an antidumping duty order under 19 CFR 351.211 or a 
determination under 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4) to continue an order or 
suspended investigation (after sunset review), the Secretary, if 
requested by a domestic interested party within 30 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the review, will determine, 
consistent with FAG Italia v. United States, 291 F.3d 806 (Fed. Cir. 
2002), as appropriate, whether antidumping duties have been absorbed by 
an exporter or producer subject to the review if the subject 
merchandise is sold in the United States through an importer that is 
affiliated with such exporter or producer. The request must include the 
name(s) of the exporter or producer for which the inquiry is requested.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The petitioners also requested a review of Sucocitrico 
Cutrale S.A., which we have determined in prior segments of this 
proceeding is the same company as Sucocitrico Cutrale Ltda.
    \4\ Louis Dreyfus Commodities Agroindustrial S.A. claimed in its 
request for review that it is the successor-in-interest to Coinbra-
Frutesp S.A. and we are currently evaluating this claim.
    \5\ If one of the above-named companies does not qualify for a 
separate rate, all other exporters of Certain Tissue Paper Products 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') who have not qualified 
for a separate rate are deemed to be covered by this review as part 
of the single PRC entity of which the named exporters are a part.
    \6\ If one of the above-named companies does not qualify for a 
separate rate, all other exporters of Glycine from the PRC who have 
not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered by this 
review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named exporters 
are a part.
    \7\ If the above-named company does not qualify for a separate 
rate, all other exporters of Sodium Hexametaphosphate from the PRC 
who have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered 
by this review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named 
exporters are a part.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no 
assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ``gap'' period, of 
the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the POR.
    Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. On 
January 22, 2008, the Department published Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO 
Procedures, 73 FR 3634 (January 22, 2008). Those procedures apply to 
administrative reviews included in this notice of initiation. Parties 
wishing to participate in any of these administrative reviews should 
ensure that they meet the requirements of these procedures (e.g., the 
filing of separate letters of appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 
351.103(d)).
    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 segments of any AD/
CVD 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

[[Page 23548]]

certifications are provided at the end of the Interim Final Rule. The 
Department intends to reject factual submissions in any proceeding 
segments initiated on or after March 14, 2011 if the submitting party 
does not comply with the revised certification requirements.
    These initiations and this notice are in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1765(a)), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).

     April 19, 2011.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
