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 no further interest in the order, in whole or in part. 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. On February 28, 2012, Anvil International and Ward Manufacturing, petitioners in the original investigation, submitted a statement indicating that they account for approximately 95 percent of the domestic production of the like product. Further, Petitioners stated that they have no interest in producing the auto part described in the Ford’s changed circumstances request and agree to the exclusion of the abovedescribed connector from the scope of the AD duty order.3 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. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.222(g), we find that Petitioners’ affirmative statement of no interest constitutes good cause for the conduct of this review. Additionally, our decision to expedite this review stems from the domestic industry’s lack of interest in applying the AD order to the connector, described above, and covered by this request. Based on the expression of no interest by Petitioners and absent any objection by other domestic interested parties, we preliminarily determine that substantially all of the domestic producers of the like product have no interest in the continued application of the AD order on non-malleable cast iron pipe fittings from the PRC to the merchandise that is subject to this request. Therefore, we are notifying the public of our intent to revoke, in part, the AD order as it relates to imports of the connector, as described above, from the PRC. We intend to modify the scope of the AD order to read as follows: Specifically excluded from the scope of the order is a certain brake fluid tube connector. The brake fluid tube connector is a ‘‘joint block’’ for brake fluid tubes and is made of nonmalleable cast iron to SEA automotive 3 See Petitioners’ submission dated February 28, 2012. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:39 Apr 13, 2012 Jkt 226001 standard J431. The inside diameters of the fluid flow channels of the connector are 3.2 millimeters (0.1260 inches) and 3.8 millimeters (0.1496 inches). 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. The Department will issue the final results of this changed circumstances review, which will include the results of its analysis raised in any such 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.4 If final revocation occurs, we will instruct CBP 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.5 The current requirement for a cash deposit of estimated AD 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 section 751(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216, 351.221, and 351.222. Dated: April 10, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background Section 104(b) of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (‘‘CPSIA’’) requires the CPSC to promulgate consumer product safety standards for durable infant or toddler products. These standards are to be substantially the same as applicable voluntary standards or more stringent than the voluntary standard if the Commission concludes that more stringent requirements would further reduce the risk of injury associated with the product. On December 28, 2010, we issued a final rule establishing safety standards for full-size and non-full-size baby cribs in response to the direction under section 104(b) of the CPSIA (75 FR 81766). Section 104(c) of the CPSIA specifies that the crib standards will cover used, as well as new cribs. The crib standards apply to anyone who manufactures, distributes, or contracts to sell a crib; to child care facilities, and others holding themselves out to be knowledgeable about cribs; to anyone who leases, sublets, or otherwise places a crib in the stream of commerce; and to owners and operators of places of public accommodation affecting commerce. The standards require manufacturers and importers of these products to maintain sales records for a period of six years after the manufacture or importation of the cribs and also E:\FR\FM\16APN1.SGM 16APN1
