Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube From Mexico: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 27424-27425 [2012-11343]

Download as PDF 27424 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 91 / Thursday, May 10, 2012 / Notices on all entries of subject merchandise from the PRC. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the estimated amount by which the normal value exceeds the U.S. price as indicated in the chart below. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average antidumping duty margins as discussed below.8 The ‘‘PRC-wide’’ rate applies to all exporters of subject merchandise not specifically listed. Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion of exports of stilbenic OBAs from the PRC, we extended the four-month period to no more than six months.9 In the underlying investigation, the Department published the Preliminary Determination on November 3, 2011.10 Therefore, the six-month period beginning on the date of the publication of the Preliminary Determination ended on May 1, 2012. Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of stilbenic OBAs from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after May 1, 2012, the date provisional measures expired, and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination in the Federal Register Suspension of liquidation will resume on and after the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination in the Federal Register The weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: Weightedaverage margin Exporter Producer Zhejiang Hongda Chemicals Co., Ltd ...........................................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 3, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on lightwalled rectangular pipe and tube from Mexico, covering the period of August 1, 2010, to July 31, 2011.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review The Department finds it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of these reviews within the original time frame because the Department requires additional time to gather additional information and analyze the information submitted on the record by both mandatory respondents, Regiomontana de Perfiles S.A. de C.V. (Regiopytsa) and Maquilacero S.A. de C.V. (Maquilacero). Therefore, the Department is fully extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than August 30, 2012, which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of this order. We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results notice.

SUMMARY: In response to a request from Home Products International (the Petitioner in this proceeding), the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on floorstanding, metal-top ironing tables and certain parts thereof (ironing tables) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). The period of review (POR) is August 1, 2010, through July 31, 2011. The review covers one respondent Foshan Shunde Yongjian Housewares & Hardware Co., Ltd. (Foshan Shunde). As discussed below, we have preliminarily determined that Foshan Shunde is part of the PRC-wide entity and that the entity has failed to cooperate to the best of its ability. We are, therefore, applying adverse facts available (AFA) to the PRC-wide entity, which includes Foshan Shunde. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results, we will instruct the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on entries of the subject merchandise during the POR.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 6, 2004, the Department published in the Federal Register the VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:18 May 09, 2012 Jkt 226001 antidumping duty order regarding ironing tables from the PRC.1 On August 1, 2011, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on, inter alia, ironing tables from the PRC.2 On August 31, 2011, Home Products International and Foshan Shunde requested, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), an administrative review of this order for Foshan Shunde. On October 3, 2011, the Department initiated an administrative review of Foshan Shunde.3 The Department issued its antidumping questionnaire to Foshan Shunde on October 6, 2011. On October 27, 2011, counsel for Foshan Shunde withdrew Foshan Shunde’s request for review. Additionally, the law firm that had represented Foshan Shunde indicated it ‘‘has not been authorized to enter an appearance or to otherwise participate in this review’’ on Foshan Shunde’s behalf.4 Because, the review request filed by Home Products International was not withdrawn, the Department continued the administrative review of Foshan Shunde. On November 4, 2011, the Department sent Foshan Shunde a letter, which was received, requesting confirmation that Foshan Shunde received our antidumping questionnaire through its counsel at the time. However, Foshan Shunde filed no response to either our October 6, 2011, questionnaire or our November 4, 2011, letter. Scope of the Order For purposes of this order, the product covered consists of floorstanding, metal-top ironing tables, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain parts thereof. The subject tables are designed and used principally for the hand ironing or pressing of garments or other articles of fabric. The subject tables have fullheight leg assemblies that support the ironing surface at an appropriate (often adjustable) height above the floor.

The subject ironing tables may be sold with or without a pad and/or cover. All types and configurations of floor-standing, metal-top ironing tables are covered by this review. Furthermore, this order specifically covers imports of ironing tables, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain parts thereof. For purposes of this order, the term ‘‘unassembled’’ ironing table means a product requiring the attachment of the leg assembly to the top or the attachment of an included feature such as an iron rest or linen rack. The term ‘‘complete’’ ironing table means product sold as a ready-to-use ensemble consisting of the metal-top table and a pad and cover, with or without additional features, e.g., iron rest or linen rack. The term ‘‘incomplete’’ ironing table means product shipped or sold as a ‘‘bare board’’—i.e., a metal-top table only, without the pad and cover— with or without additional features, e.g., iron rest or linen rack. The major parts or components of ironing tables that are intended to be covered by this order under the term ‘‘certain parts thereof’’ consist of the metal top component (with or without assembled supports and slides) and/or the leg components, whether or not attached together as a leg assembly. The order covers separately shipped metal top components and leg components, without regard to whether the respective quantities would yield an exact quantity of assembled ironing tables. Ironing tables without legs (such as models that mount on walls or over doors) are not floor-standing and are specifically excluded. Additionally, tabletop or countertop models with short legs that do not exceed 12 inches in length (and which may or may not collapse or retract) are specifically excluded. The subject ironing tables are currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 9403.20.0011. The subject metal top and leg components are classified under HTSUS subheading 9403.90.8041. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and for Customs and Border Protection (CBP) purposes, the Department’s written description of the scope remains dispositive. Facts Otherwise Available Section 776(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), mandates that the Department use facts otherwise E:\FR\FM\10MYN1.SGM 10MYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 3, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register the initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on light-walled rectangular pipe 
and tube from Mexico, covering the period of August 1, 2010, to July 
31, 2011. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocations in Part, 76 FR 
61076 (October 3, 2011). The current deadline for the preliminary 
results of this review is May 2, 2012.

Statutory Time Limits

    In antidumping duty administrative reviews, section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department 
to complete the preliminary results of an administrative review within 
245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for 
which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to 
complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act allows the Department to extend the 245-day time period for the 
preliminary results up to 365 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department finds it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results of these reviews within the original time frame 
because the Department requires additional time to gather additional 
information and analyze the information submitted on the record by both 
mandatory respondents, Regiomontana de Perfiles S.A. de C.V. 
(Regiopytsa) and Maquilacero S.A. de C.V. (Maquilacero). Therefore, the 
Department is fully extending the time limit for completion of the 
preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than 
August 30, 2012, which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary 
month of this order. We intend to issue the final results no later than 
120 days after publication of the preliminary results notice.
    This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.
