SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background Since the Department issued the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the following events have occurred with respect to Jining Yifa, Shenzhen VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:16 Aug 19, 2011 Jkt 223001 Bainong, and Yantai Jinyan. On May 16, 2011, the Department issued a supplemental questionnaire to Jining Yifa. On May 18, 2011, Jining Yifa informed the Department that it would not respond to the supplemental questionnaire. On May 19, 2011, the Department issued a supplemental questionnaire to Shenzhen Bainong. On June 9, 2011, Shenzhen Bainong filed its response to our supplemental questionnaire. No parties filed case briefs with respect to Jining Yifa. Yantai Jinyan and Shenzhen Bainong timely filed case briefs. The Fresh Garlic Producers Association and its individual Members, Christopher Ranch LLC, The Garlic Company, Valley Garlic, and Vessey and Company (collectively, Petitioners) timely filed rebuttal briefs separately addressing the parties’ case briefs. Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are all grades of garlic, whole or separated into constituent cloves, whether or not peeled, fresh, chilled, frozen, provisionally preserved, or packed in water or other neutral substance, but not prepared or preserved by the addition of other ingredients or heat processing. The differences between grades are based on color, size, sheathing, and level of decay. The scope of the order does not include the following: (a) Garlic that has been mechanically harvested and that is primarily, but not exclusively, destined for non-fresh use; or (b) garlic that has been specially prepared and cultivated prior to planting and then harvested and otherwise prepared for use as seed. The subject merchandise is used principally as a food product and for seasoning. The subject garlic is currently classifiable under subheadings 0703.20.0010, 0703.20.0020, 0703.20.0090, 0710.80.7060, 0710.80.9750, 0711.90.6000, and 2005.90.9700 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. In order to be excluded from the order, garlic entered under the HTSUS subheadings listed above that is (1) mechanically harvested and primarily, but not exclusively, destined for non-fresh use or (2) specially prepared and cultivated prior to planting and then harvested and otherwise prepared for use as seed must be accompanied by declarations to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to that effect. PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52315 Final Rescission of NSR: Jining Yifa In the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department analyzed the bona fides of Jining Yifa’s sales, and preliminarily found Jining Yifa’s sales to the United States to be not bona fide. In the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, we stated that we would continue to gather information with respect to this issue. The Department subsequently issued a supplemental questionnaire to Jining Yifa; in response, Jining Yifa provided a letter explaining that it would not respond. No party submitted briefs regarding Jining Yifa. Absent any new information on the record or arguments regarding Jining Yifa and the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department continues to find that the sales by Jining Yifa are not bona fide; therefore, these sales do not provide a reasonable or reliable basis for calculating a dumping margin. Thus, the Department is rescinding the NSR of Jining Yifa. Final Rescission of NSR: Shenzhen Bainong In the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department analyzed the bona fides of Shenzhen Bainong’s sales and preliminarily found Shenzhen Bainong’s sales to the United States to be not bona fide. In the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, we stated that we would continue to gather information with respect to this issue. The Department subsequently issued a supplemental questionnaire to Shenzhen Bainong, to which Shenzhen Bainong responded. Shenzhen Bainong filed a case brief and Petitioners filed a rebuttal brief. The Department has analyzed Shenzhen Bainong’s supplemental questionnaire response and the case and rebuttal briefs. We continue to find that Shenzhen Bainong’s sale is not bona fide and does not provide a reasonable or reliable basis for calculating a dumping margin. Thus we are rescinding the NSR for Shenzhen Bainong. Final Rescission of NSR: Yantai Jinyan As noted above, the Department received a case brief and a rebuttal brief from Yantai Jinyan and Petitioners, respectively. In the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department stated that its decision to initiate the NSR and to extend the POR was based on the information provided by Yantai Jinyan in its request for an NSR. The Department reached a preliminary decision to rescind the NSR of Yantai Jinyan because the Department found that Yantai Jinyan’s request for review contained a misrepresentation regarding E:\FR\FM\22AUN1.SGM 22AUN1 52316 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 162 / Monday, August 22, 2011 / Notices jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES the timing of the sale at issue. The Department continues to find that Yantai Jinyan’s request for an NSR did not meet the minimum requirements for an NSR under 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(C). Specifically, the sale that Yantai Jinyan certified in its request as the first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States was later identified by Yantai Jinyan as a sale to an affiliated customer. In order to qualify for an NSR under 19 CFR 351.214, a company must certify and document, among other things, the date of the first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. Once all the facts surrounding the transaction were established, it became clear that Yantai Jinyan did not have a sale or entry during the standard POR; as such, there was in fact no basis upon which to initiate an NSR. Consequently, we preliminarily determined that the Department’s decision to initiate the NSR of Yantai Jinyan was based on inaccurate information provided by Yantai Jinyan. See Preliminary Intent to Rescind, 76 FR at 24858. After analyzing Yantai Jinyan’s case brief and Petitioners’ rebuttal brief, the Department continues to find that Yantai Jinyan’s request for an NSR did not meet the requirements for initiation. As such, it is appropriate to rescind the NSR of Yantai Jinyan. The Department is currently conducting an antidumping duty administrative review for the POR November 1, 2009, through October 31, 2010, to which Yantai Jinyan is subject. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 81565, 81569 (December 28, 2010). As indicated in the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department has moved Yantai Jinyan’s separate rate application from the record of this NSR to the record of the 2009–2010 administrative review, and will consider it in the context of the administrative review. See ‘‘Memorandum from Jacqueline Arrowsmith to the File through Dana S. Mermelstein, Program Manager, AD/CVD Operations 6, Moving Yantai Jinyan’s Separate Rates Application to the November 1, 2009 through October 31, 2010 (16th) Administrative Review,’’ dated concurrently with this notice.

A list of the issues raised in the briefs and addressed in the Decision Memorandum is appended to this notice. The Decision Memorandum is a public document on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU) main Commerce building, Room 7046, and is also accessible directly on the Web at https://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. The Department has made the transition to an electronic filing system, IA ACCESS; CRU will continue to maintain the official record in paper form for those documents that were filed prior to the implementation of IA ACCESS. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263, 39264 (July 6, 2011). Cash Deposit Requirements Effective upon publication of the final rescission of the NSRs of Jining Yifa, Shenzhen Bainong, and Yantai Jinyan, the Department will instruct CBP to discontinue the option of posting a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for entries of subject merchandise by Jining Yifa, Shenzhen Bainong, and Yantai Jinyan. Cash deposits will be required for exports of subject merchandise by Jining Yifa, Shenzhen Bainong, and Yantai Jinyan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date at the per-unit PRC-wide rate, $4.71 per kilogram. Assessment Instructions As a result of the rescission of the NSR of Jining Yifa and Shenzhen Bainong, the entries of subject merchandise by Jining Yifa and Shenzhen Bainong covered by these NSRs will be assessed at the PRC-wide rate. Because these entries are also covered by the POR of the 2009–2010 administrative review currently being conducted (see Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 81565), we will issue liquidation instructions for Jining Yifa’s and Shenzhen Bainong’s entries upon completion of the administrative review. Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department will instruct CBP to assess PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 antidumping duties on entries for Jining Yifa and Shenzhen Bainong at the PRCwide rate pursuant to the final results of the 2009–2010 administrative review. In addition, the Department has moved Yantai Jinyan’s separate rate application from the record of this NSR to the record of the 2009–2010 administrative review, and, during the course of the administrative review, the Department will evaluate whether Yantai Jinyan’s separate rate application establishes its eligibility for a separate rate. Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise by Yantai Jinyan now covered by the administrative review, at the appropriate rate pursuant to the final results of the 2009–2010 administrative review. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a 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 reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Return or Destruction of Proprietary Information This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to the administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

The vessel identification requirement is essential to facilitate enforcement. The ability to link fishing or other activity to the vessel owner or operator is crucial to enforcement of regulations issued under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. A vessel’s official number is required to be displayed on the port and starboard sides of the deckhouse or hull, and on a weather deck. It identifies each vessel and should be visible at distances at sea and in the air. Vessels that qualify for particular fisheries are readily identified, gear violations are more readily prosecuted, and this allows for more cost-effective enforcement. Cooperating fishermen also use the number to report suspicious activities that they observe. Regulation-compliant fishermen ultimately benefit as unauthorized and illegal fishing is deterred and more burdensome regulations are avoided. or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.

with respect to Yantai Jinyan, the Department continues to find that

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Since the Department issued the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the 
following events have occurred with respect to Jining Yifa, Shenzhen 
Bainong, and Yantai Jinyan. On May 16, 2011, the Department issued a 
supplemental questionnaire to Jining Yifa. On May 18, 2011, Jining Yifa 
informed the Department that it would not respond to the supplemental 
questionnaire. On May 19, 2011, the Department issued a supplemental 
questionnaire to Shenzhen Bainong. On June 9, 2011, Shenzhen Bainong 
filed its response to our supplemental questionnaire. No parties filed 
case briefs with respect to Jining Yifa. Yantai Jinyan and Shenzhen 
Bainong timely filed case briefs. The Fresh Garlic Producers 
Association and its individual Members, Christopher Ranch LLC, The 
Garlic Company, Valley Garlic, and Vessey and Company (collectively, 
Petitioners) timely filed rebuttal briefs separately addressing the 
parties' case briefs.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are all grades of garlic, whole 
or separated into constituent cloves, whether or not peeled, fresh, 
chilled, frozen, provisionally preserved, or packed in water or other 
neutral substance, but not prepared or preserved by the addition of 
other ingredients or heat processing. The differences between grades 
are based on color, size, sheathing, and level of decay. The scope of 
the order does not include the following: (a) Garlic that has been 
mechanically harvested and that is primarily, but not exclusively, 
destined for non-fresh use; or (b) garlic that has been specially 
prepared and cultivated prior to planting and then harvested and 
otherwise prepared for use as seed. The subject merchandise is used 
principally as a food product and for seasoning. The subject garlic is 
currently classifiable under subheadings 0703.20.0010, 0703.20.0020, 
0703.20.0090, 0710.80.7060, 0710.80.9750, 0711.90.6000, and 
2005.90.9700 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience 
and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order 
is dispositive. In order to be excluded from the order, garlic entered 
under the HTSUS subheadings listed above that is (1) mechanically 
harvested and primarily, but not exclusively, destined for non-fresh 
use or (2) specially prepared and cultivated prior to planting and then 
harvested and otherwise prepared for use as seed must be accompanied by 
declarations to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to that 
effect.

Final Rescission of NSR: Jining Yifa

    In the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department analyzed the 
bona fides of Jining Yifa's sales, and preliminarily found Jining 
Yifa's sales to the United States to be not bona fide. In the 
Preliminary Intent to Rescind, we stated that we would continue to 
gather information with respect to this issue. The Department 
subsequently issued a supplemental questionnaire to Jining Yifa; in 
response, Jining Yifa provided a letter explaining that it would not 
respond. No party submitted briefs regarding Jining Yifa.
    Absent any new information on the record or arguments regarding 
Jining Yifa and the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department 
continues to find that the sales by Jining Yifa are not bona fide; 
therefore, these sales do not provide a reasonable or reliable basis 
for calculating a dumping margin. Thus, the Department is rescinding 
the NSR of Jining Yifa.

Final Rescission of NSR: Shenzhen Bainong

    In the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department analyzed the 
bona fides of Shenzhen Bainong's sales and preliminarily found Shenzhen 
Bainong's sales to the United States to be not bona fide. In the 
Preliminary Intent to Rescind, we stated that we would continue to 
gather information with respect to this issue. The Department 
subsequently issued a supplemental questionnaire to Shenzhen Bainong, 
to which Shenzhen Bainong responded. Shenzhen Bainong filed a case 
brief and Petitioners filed a rebuttal brief. The Department has 
analyzed Shenzhen Bainong's supplemental questionnaire response and the 
case and rebuttal briefs. We continue to find that Shenzhen Bainong's 
sale is not bona fide and does not provide a reasonable or reliable 
basis for calculating a dumping margin. Thus we are rescinding the NSR 
for Shenzhen Bainong.

Final Rescission of NSR: Yantai Jinyan

    As noted above, the Department received a case brief and a rebuttal 
brief from Yantai Jinyan and Petitioners, respectively. In the 
Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department stated that its decision 
to initiate the NSR and to extend the POR was based on the information 
provided by Yantai Jinyan in its request for an NSR. The Department 
reached a preliminary decision to rescind the NSR of Yantai Jinyan 
because the Department found that Yantai Jinyan's request for review 
contained a misrepresentation regarding

[[Page 52316]]

the timing of the sale at issue. The Department continues to find that 
Yantai Jinyan's request for an NSR did not meet the minimum 
requirements for an NSR under 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(C). 
Specifically, the sale that Yantai Jinyan certified in its request as 
the first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States was 
later identified by Yantai Jinyan as a sale to an affiliated customer. 
In order to qualify for an NSR under 19 CFR 351.214, a company must 
certify and document, among other things, the date of the first sale to 
an unaffiliated customer in the United States. Once all the facts 
surrounding the transaction were established, it became clear that 
Yantai Jinyan did not have a sale or entry during the standard POR; as 
such, there was in fact no basis upon which to initiate an NSR. 
Consequently, we preliminarily determined that the Department's 
decision to initiate the NSR of Yantai Jinyan was based on inaccurate 
information provided by Yantai Jinyan. See Preliminary Intent to 
Rescind, 76 FR at 24858. After analyzing Yantai Jinyan's case brief and 
Petitioners' rebuttal brief, the Department continues to find that 
Yantai Jinyan's request for an NSR did not meet the requirements for 
initiation. As such, it is appropriate to rescind the NSR of Yantai 
Jinyan.
    The Department is currently conducting an antidumping duty 
administrative review for the POR November 1, 2009, through October 31, 
2010, to which Yantai Jinyan is subject. See Initiation of Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for 
Revocation in Part, 75 FR 81565, 81569 (December 28, 2010). As 
indicated in the Preliminary Intent to Rescind, the Department has 
moved Yantai Jinyan's separate rate application from the record of this 
NSR to the record of the 2009-2010 administrative review, and will 
consider it in the context of the administrative review. See 
``Memorandum from Jacqueline Arrowsmith to the File through Dana S. 
Mermelstein, Program Manager, AD/CVD Operations 6, Moving Yantai 
Jinyan's Separate Rates Application to the November 1, 2009 through 
October 31, 2010 (16th) Administrative Review,'' dated concurrently 
with this notice.

adopted by this notice. A list of the issues raised in the briefs and 
addressed in the Decision Memorandum is appended to this notice. The 
Decision Memorandum is a public document on file in the Central Records 
Unit (CRU) main Commerce building, Room 7046, and is also accessible 
directly on the Web at https://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and 
electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. 
The Department has made the transition to an electronic filing system, 
IA ACCESS; CRU will continue to maintain the official record in paper 
form for those documents that were filed prior to the implementation of 
IA ACCESS. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order 
Procedures, 76 FR 39263, 39264 (July 6, 2011).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Effective upon publication of the final rescission of the NSRs of 
Jining Yifa, Shenzhen Bainong, and Yantai Jinyan, the Department will 
instruct CBP to discontinue the option of posting a bond or security in 
lieu of a cash deposit for entries of subject merchandise by Jining 
Yifa, Shenzhen Bainong, and Yantai Jinyan. Cash deposits will be 
required for exports of subject merchandise by Jining Yifa, Shenzhen 
Bainong, and Yantai Jinyan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date at the per-unit PRC-wide 
rate, $4.71 per kilogram.

Assessment Instructions

    As a result of the rescission of the NSR of Jining Yifa and 
Shenzhen Bainong, the entries of subject merchandise by Jining Yifa and 
Shenzhen Bainong covered by these NSRs will be assessed at the PRC-wide 
rate. Because these entries are also covered by the POR of the 2009-
2010 administrative review currently being conducted (see Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 81565), we will issue liquidation 
instructions for Jining Yifa's and Shenzhen Bainong's entries upon 
completion of the administrative review. Upon completion of the 
administrative review, the Department will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on entries for Jining Yifa and Shenzhen Bainong at 
the PRC-wide rate pursuant to the final results of the 2009-2010 
administrative review.
    In addition, the Department has moved Yantai Jinyan's separate rate 
application from the record of this NSR to the record of the 2009-2010 
administrative review, and, during the course of the administrative 
review, the Department will evaluate whether Yantai Jinyan's separate 
rate application establishes its eligibility for a separate rate. Upon 
completion of the administrative review, the Department will instruct 
CBP to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise by 
Yantai Jinyan now covered by the administrative review, at the 
appropriate rate pursuant to the final results of the 2009-2010 
administrative review.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a 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 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Return or Destruction of Proprietary Information

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to the 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 
CFR 351.214.

     Dated: August 15, 2011.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
