The polyolefin plastic covers are of specific thickness; front cover is 0.019 inches (within normal manufacturing tolerances) and rear cover is 0.028 inches (within normal manufacturing tolerances). Integral with the stitching that attaches the polyester spine covering, is captured both ends of a 1″ wide elastic fabric band. This band is located 2–3/8″ from the top of the front plastic cover and provides pen or pencil storage. Both ends of the spiral wire are cut and then bent backwards to overlap with the previous coil but specifically outside the coil diameter but inside the polyester covering. During construction, the polyester covering is sewn to the front and rear covers face to face (outside to outside) so that when the book is closed, the stitching is concealed from the outside. Both free ends (the ends not sewn to the cover and back) are stitched with a turned edge construction. The flexible polyester material forms a covering over the spiral wire to protect it and provide a comfortable grip on the product.

The HTSUS headings are provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Since the issuance of the order, the Department has issued numerous scope rulings. Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Intent To Revoke Order in Part At the request of AASPS, and in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and (d)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.216, the Department is initiating a changed circumstances review of the AD order on CLPP from the PRC to determine whether partial revocation of the order is warranted with respect to FiveStar® AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings. Section 782(h)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i) provide that the Department may revoke an order (in whole or in part) if it determines that producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product have expressed a lack of VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:13 Aug 16, 2011 Jkt 223001 interest in the order, in whole or in part. To establish whether the producers represent ‘‘substantially all’’ of domestic producers, as set forth in section 782(h) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i), the Department has previously interpreted this term to mean those domestic producers accounting for at least 85 percent of the total production of domestic like product covered by the order. See 19 CFR 351.208(c). In addition, in the event the Department determines that expedited action is warranted, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) permits the Department to combine the notices of initiation and preliminary results. In accordance with section 751(b) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(l)(i) and 351.221(c)(3), we are initiating this changed circumstances review and have determined that expedited action is warranted. AASPS asserts that MWV is the sole domestic producer of FiveStar® AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings and further, based on information reasonably available to the AASPS with respect to the U.S. lined paper market, the producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the order pertains support the request for changed circumstances review as filed.4 Consistent with established precedent,5 because AASPS, the petitioner in the underlying investigation, has made an affirmative statement of no interest and claimed that parties accounting for more than 85 percent of production of the domestic like product support the partial revocation, we are accepting their claim. In accordance with section 751(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i), and absent any evidence to the contrary, we find that substantially all of the producers of the domestic like product have expressed a lack of interest in maintaining the order with respect to FiveStar® AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers 4 See AASPS’s June 29, 2011, letter to the Department at pgs. 5–6. 5 See, e.g., Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products and Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate Products From Germany: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Changed Circumstances Reviews, 69 FR 4114 (January 28, 2004), unchanged in Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products and Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate Products from Germany: Final Results of Countervailing Duty Changed Circumstances Reviews and Revocation of the Orders, in Whole, 69 FR 17132 (April 1, 2004).

Based on the expression of no interest by companies accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the CLPP Order pertains, we preliminarily determine that the domestic producers of the like product have no interest in the continued application of the AD order on CLPP from the PRC to the merchandise that is subject to this request. Accordingly, we are notifying the public of our intent to revoke, in part, the AD order with respect to FiveStar® AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings. Therefore, we intend to change the scope of the order on CLPP from the PRC to include the following exclusion: Excluded from the scope is FiveStar® AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings. Public Comment Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. Written comments may be submitted no later than 14 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results. Rebuttals to written comments, limited to issues raised in such comments, may be filed no later than 21 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results. The Department will issue the final results of this changed circumstances review, which will include its analysis of any written comments, no later than 270 days after the date on which this review was initiated, or within 45 days if all parties agree to our preliminary results. See 19 CFR 351.216(e). If final revocation occurs, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to end the suspension of liquidation for the merchandise covered by the revocation on the effective date of the notice of revocation and to release any cash deposit or bond. See 19 CFR 351.222(g)(4). The current requirement for a cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties on all subject merchandise will continue unless and until it is modified pursuant to the final results of this changed circumstances review. This initiation and preliminary results of review and notice are in accordance with sections 751(b) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216, 351.221, and 351.222. Dated: August 11, 2011.

joined by 300 denier polyester spine cover extending the entire length 
of the spine and bound by a 3-ring plastic fixture. The polyolefin 
plastic covers are of a specific thickness; front cover is 0.019 inches 
(within normal manufacturing tolerances) and rear cover is 0.028 inches 
(within normal manufacturing tolerances). During construction, the 
polyester covering is sewn to the front cover face to face (outside to 
outside) so that when the book is closed, the stitching is concealed 
from the outside. During construction, the polyester cover is sewn to 
the back cover with the outside of the polyester spine cover to the 
inside back cover. Both free ends (the ends not sewn to the cover and 
back) are stitched with a turned edge construction. Each ring within 
the fixture is comprised of a flexible strap portion that snaps into a 
stationary post which forms a closed binding ring. The ring fixture is 
riveted with six metal rivets and sewn to the back plastic cover and is 
specifically positioned on the outside back cover. The product must 
bear the valid trademark FiveStar FlexTM (products found to 
be bearing an invalidly licensed or used trademark are not excluded 
from the scope).
    Merchandise subject to this order is typically imported under 
headings 4810.22.5044, 4811.90.9050, 4820.10.2010, 4820.10.2020, 
4820.10.2030, 4820.10.2040, 4820.10.2060, and 4820.10.4000 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). The HTSUS 
headings are provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, 
the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.
    Since the issuance of the order, the Department has issued numerous 
scope rulings.

Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and 
Intent To Revoke Order in Part

    At the request of AASPS, and in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) 
and (d)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''), and 19 CFR 
351.216, the Department is initiating a changed circumstances review of 
the AD order on CLPP from the PRC to determine whether partial 
revocation of the order is warranted with respect to FiveStar[supreg] 
AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC 
coatings. Section 782(h)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i) 
provide that the Department may revoke an order (in whole or in part) 
if it determines that producers accounting for substantially all of the 
production of the domestic like product have expressed a lack of 
interest in the order, in whole or in part. To establish whether the 
producers represent ``substantially all'' of domestic producers, as set 
forth in section 782(h) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i), the 
Department has previously interpreted this term to mean those domestic 
producers accounting for at least 85 percent of the total production of 
domestic like product covered by the order. See 19 CFR 351.208(c). In 
addition, in the event the Department determines that expedited action 
is warranted, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) permits the Department to 
combine the notices of initiation and preliminary results.
    In accordance with section 751(b) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.222(g)(l)(i) and 351.221(c)(3), we are initiating this changed 
circumstances review and have determined that expedited action is 
warranted. AASPS asserts that MWV is the sole domestic producer of 
FiveStar[supreg] AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers 
without PVC coatings and further, based on information reasonably 
available to the AASPS with respect to the U.S. lined paper market, the 
producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the 
domestic like product to which the order pertains support the request 
for changed circumstances review as filed.\4\ Consistent with 
established precedent,\5\ because AASPS, the petitioner in the 
underlying investigation, has made an affirmative statement of no 
interest and claimed that parties accounting for more than 85 percent 
of production of the domestic like product support the partial 
revocation, we are accepting their claim. In accordance with section 
751(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i), and absent any evidence 
to the contrary, we find that substantially all of the producers of the 
domestic like product have expressed a lack of interest in maintaining 
the order with respect to FiveStar[supreg] AdvanceTM 
notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings. Based on the 
expression of no interest by companies accounting for substantially all 
of the production of the domestic like product to which the CLPP Order 
pertains, we preliminarily determine that the domestic producers of the 
like product have no interest in the continued application of the AD 
order on CLPP from the PRC to the merchandise that is subject to this 
request. Accordingly, we are notifying the public of our intent to 
revoke, in part, the AD order with respect to FiveStar[supreg] 
AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC 
coatings. Therefore, we intend to change the scope of the order on CLPP 
from the PRC to include the following exclusion: Excluded from the 
scope is FiveStar[supreg] AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook 
organizers without PVC coatings.
