SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) covering the period of review (POR) of November 1, 2009, through October 31, 2010. The Department initiated this review for 112 producers/exporters (companies).1 The sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: 1 We also initiated a review of Zhengzhou Dadi. However, the responses of Shenzhen Xinboda, a mandatory respondent, indicate that Zhengzhou VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:59 Oct 19, 2011 Jkt 226001 Department is issuing partial preliminary results for the PRC-wide entity only, which includes the seven companies listed in Appendix III. Based on timely withdrawals of requests for review, the Department is now rescinding the review with respect to 84 companies which are listed in Appendix I. The Department also preliminarily determines that a rescission of the administrative review is warranted with respect to 14 companies which each timely submitted a ‘‘no shipment’’ certification. The intent to rescind is applicable to the companies listed in Appendix II. In addition, there are seven companies which the Department determines are subject to the PRC-wide entity rate and which are subject to these partial preliminary results. These seven companies are listed in Appendix III. Accordingly, 21 companies are subject to these partial preliminary results and the intent to rescind the administrative review and are listed in Appendix IV. The Department is issuing these partial preliminary results based on unique circumstances that have raised concerns with respect to enforcement of the antidumping duty order. Specifically, there are two mandatory respondents who are not participating in this review. Because these two companies have failed to establish their eligibility for a separate rate, the Department preliminarily determines that each of these companies are part of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, each company’s current cash deposit rate is much lower than the rate preliminarily determined to be applicable to their entries. While such circumstances do not normally warrant issuance of partial preliminary results, there are unique and serious enforcement concerns that warrant issuing preliminary results for certain companies at this time. A more detailed explanation of the disposition of each of the above companies is set forth below.2 The remaining seven companies under review will be covered in a separate partial preliminary results of review, and are listed in Appendix V. Dadi is its affiliated producer. As such, we will address Zhenghou Dadi in the context of our analysis of Shenzhen Xinboda. We do not include Zhengzhou Dadi in our company counts in this notice. 2 The specific facts underlying the Department’s decision for issuing these partial preliminary results are business proprietary.

The Department invites interested parties to comment on these partial preliminary results for the PRC-wide entity and on our intent to rescind the administrative review of the 14 companies which certified ‘‘no shipments.’’ If the partial preliminary results for the PRC-wide entity are adopted in the partial final results, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR.

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board (the Board) by the Lehigh Valley Economic Development

expand the zone under the alternative site framework (ASF) adopted by

71069-71070, 11/22/10). The ASF is an option for grantees for the 
establishment or reorganization of general-purpose zones and can permit 
significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ``usage-
driven'' FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee's 
``service area'' in the context of the Board's standard 2,000-acre 
activation limit for a general-purpose zone project. The application 
was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 
U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It 
was formally filed on October 13, 2011.
    FTZ 272 was approved by the Board on April 5, 2007 (Board Order 
1502, 72 FR 18960, 04/16/07), and expanded on February 13, 2009 (Board 
Order 1605, 74 FR 8903, 02/13/09), and on May 13, 2010 (Board Order 
1679, 75 FR 29975-29976, 05/28/10).
    The current zone project includes the following sites: Site 1 (727 
acres)--Lehigh Valley Industrial Park VII at Bethlehem Commerce Center, 
1805 E, 4th St., Bethlehem; Site 2 (96 acres)--Arcadia East Industrial 
Park (Lot 3), Route 512 and Silver Crest Rd., East Allen Township; Site 
3 (83 acres)--Arcadia West Industrial Park (Lots 2, 5, 6 and 7), I-78 
and Route 863, Weisenburg Township; Site 4 (226 acres)--West Hills 
Business Center, I-78 and Route 863, Weisenburg Township; Site 5 (399 
acres)--Liberty Business Center, Industrial Blvd. and Boulder Dr., 
Breinigsville; Site 6 (183 acres)--Lehigh Valley West Corporate Center, 
Nestle Way and Schantz Rd., Breinigsville; Site 7 (213 acres)--
LogistiCenter, 4950 Hanoverville Rd., Bethlehem; Site 8 (163 acres)--
ProLogis Park 33, 3819 and 3850 ProLogis Parkway, Lower Nazareth; and, 
Site 9 (442 acres)--Majestic Bethlehem Center, 3001 Commerce Blvd., 
Bethlehem.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be the 
Counties of Lehigh and Northampton, Pennsylvania, as described in the 
application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites 
throughout the service area based on companies' needs for FTZ 
designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the 
Lehigh Valley Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone project to remove Sites 2-4 and to include existing sites 1, 5, 6, 
7, 8, and 9 as magnet sites. The ASF allows for the possible exemption 
of one magnet site from the ``sunset'' time limits that generally apply 
to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes that Site 1 be so 
exempted. The applicant is also requesting approval of the following 
initial ``usage-driven'' site: Proposed Site 10 (21 acres)--Sigma 
Aldrich Chemical Company, 6950 Ambassador Drive, Allentown, Lehigh 
County, Pennsylvania. Because the ASF only pertains to establishing or 
reorganizing a general-purpose zone, the application

would have no impact on FTZ 272's authorized subzone.
    In accordance with the Board's regulations, Kathleen Boyce of the 
FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and 
information presented in the application and case record and to report 
findings and recommendations to the Board.
