SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The notice announcing the antidumping duty order on tires from the PRC was published in the Federal Register on September 4, 2008.1 On March 30, 2012, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from Trelleborg Wheel Systems (Xingtai) China Co. Ltd. (‘‘TWS China’’).2 On April 16, 2012, the Department requested further information regarding discrepant and incomplete information in TWS China’s request.3 On April 18, 2012, TWS China submitted its response, which included documentation demonstrating that it has requested to file a corrected 7501 Entry form with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to correct the manufacturer identification number and name on this form.4 TWS China has certified that it produced all of the tires it exported, which is the basis for its request for a new shipper review.5 Pursuant to the requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A) and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), in its request for a new shipper review, TWS China, as an exporter and producer, certified that: (1) It did not export tires to the United States during the period of investigation 1 See Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Amended Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 73 FR 51624 (September 4, 2008). 2 See Letter from TWS China entitled ‘‘New Shipper Review Request of Trelleborg Wheel Systems (Xingtai) China, Co.

Furthermore, if the information supplied by TWS China is later found to be incorrect or insufficient during the course of this proceeding, the Department may rescind the review or apply adverse facts available, depending upon the facts on record.

review will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that 
TWS China is not subject to either de jure or de facto government 
control with respect to its export of tires.
    We will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of the importer until 
the completion of the review, the posting of a bond or security in lieu 
of a cash deposit for each entry of the subject merchandise from TWS 
China in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19
