Quarterly Update to Annual Listing of Foreign Government Subsidies on Articles of Cheese Subject to an In-Quota Rate of Duty, 60805-60806 [2011-25301]

Download as PDF 60805 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 190 / Friday, September 30, 2011 / Notices Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Revocation of the AD 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 determined to initiate 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.5 In addition, we determined that expedited action was warranted and, consistent with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii), we combined the notices of initiation and preliminary results.6 Because AASPS, the petitioner in the underlying investigation, 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 accepted their claim and, in accordance with section 751(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i), and absent any evidence to the contrary, found that substantially all of the producers of the domestic like product expressed a lack of interest in maintaining the order with respect to FiveStar® 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 determined 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 and that partial revocation of the order is appropriate. Accordingly, we notified the public of our intent to revoke, in part, the AD order with respect to FiveStar® AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings.7 We did not receive any comments from parties objecting to the partial revocation. Therefore, the Department is partially revoking the AD order on CLPP from the PRC with respect to FiveStar® AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings. As we stated in our Intent to Revoke, 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 this notice of revocation and to release any cash deposit or bond. See 19 CFR 351.222(g)(4). This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.306. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. This changed circumstances review, partial revocation of the AD order and notice are in accordance with sections 751(b) and (d), 777(i), and 782(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216, 351.221, and 351.222.
