BIS is particularly interested in whether a flat percentage should be applied to the dollar value of all controlled items to calculate shipping tolerance or whether another method of calculation should be employed. DATES: Comments must be received no later than August 20, 2012. ADDRESSES: Comments may be submitted via email to teresa.telesco@bis.doc.gov. Please refer to ‘‘Shipping Tolerance of Export Licenses’’ in the subject line. Comments may also be sent to Shipping Tolerance Study, Office of Technology Evaluation, Room 1093, U.S Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Teresa Telesco, Office of Technology Evaluation, Bureau of Industry and Security, telephone: 202–482–4959; fax: 202–482–5361; email: teresa.telesco@bis.doc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background BIS, among its other activities, issues licenses for the export of items that are subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Under some circumstances defined in the EAR, exporters are allowed to export more than the quantity or dollar value shown on an export license. This additional amount is called a shipping tolerance. Currently, the allowable shipping tolerance is calculated based on the ‘‘unit’’ specified in the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN); the three basic ‘‘units’’ are ‘‘dollar value,’’ ‘‘number,’’ or ‘‘area, weight or measure’’ (see § 750.11). Depending on the applicable ‘‘unit,’’ BIS allows either no shipping tolerance on dollar value, or up to 25 percent shipping tolerance on dollar value. The Department of State, which issues licenses for commodities identified on the USML, measures shipping tolerances based on dollar value. The Department of State applies a flat 10 percent shipping tolerance on dollar value to all defense articles. The President’s Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative aims to harmonize, to the maximum extent possible, the control lists of the United States Munitions List (USML) and Commerce Control List (CCL). With the anticipated transfer of items determined to no longer warrant control under the USML to the CCL, which are largely generic parts and components, harmonization of the two agencies’ shipping tolerance regulations and the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:48 Jul 03, 2012 Jkt 226001 ability to automatically calculate available shipping tolerance in the Automated Export System (AES) may be beneficial, because they could make the transfer easier and less confusing for exporters. BIS is looking into the feasibility of adding to the Automated Export System (AES) a feature that automatically calculates the shipping tolerance of the dollar value on an export license, communicates the dollar value remaining on the license back to the AES filer, and notifies the AES filer when the license has been fully utilized. This feature is also known as electronic decrementation of a license, and is already in place on AES for the primary licenses issued by the Department of State (DSP–5 licenses). This feature would enhance compliance with licenses and increase transparency of export licensing by providing precise and timely information to exporters on what they are allowed to export under the license in the future. In addition, electronic decrementation would assist with the ECR harmonization goal, as well as the anticipated control of some munitions items under the CCL, by providing exporters of CCL items with the same functionality in AES already available to exporters of USML items. BIS is seeking information that would help it determine: • If the current EAR shipping tolerance rules should be maintained or if changes should be made that facilitate automatic calculation; • If the EAR shipping tolerance rules were changed, (i) should BIS continue to exclude certain ECCNs from having an allowable shipping tolerance, (ii) should the dollar value-based shipping tolerance be set at 10 percent to match the Department of State rules; and • Whether an automatic calculation of the dollar value-based shipping tolerance in AES (electronic decremention) would assist exporters in maintaining compliance with the allowable shipping dollar value of the license. The following kinds of information would be useful to BIS’s assessment: • Detailed information on your company’s experiences with both the Department of State’s and BIS’s shipping tolerance regulations; • Detailed information on how dollar value-based shipping tolerances are beneficial and practical, or detrimental and burdensome to your company or organization; • Detailed information on your company’s experience with automatic calculation of a dollar value-based shipping tolerance (decrementation) PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 against State Department licenses in AES; • If you believe that BIS’s dollar value-based shipping tolerances should be changed, detailed information on how the tolerances should be changed; and • Detailed information on what benefits, if any, industry would receive through electronic decrementation of a dollar value-based shipping tolerance in AES. How To Comment All comments must be in writing and submitted to one of the addresses indicated above. Comments must be received by BIS no later than August 20, 2012. All comments (including any personal identifiable information) will be available for public inspection and copying.

TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Assessment The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. For assessment purposes, we calculated exporter/importer- (or customer) specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. Where appropriate, we calculated an ad valorem rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total entered values associated with those transactions. For dutyassessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise. Where appropriate, we calculated a per-unit rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting per-unit rate against the entered quantity of the subject merchandise. Where an importer- (or customer) specific assessment rate is de minimis under 19 CFR 351.106(c) (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to assess that importer (or customer’s) entries of subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of these reviews. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Feili, because the rate is zero, no cash 6 See deposit will be required; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate established in the final results of this review (i.e., 70.71 percent); and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Interested Parties This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during the review period. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.402(f)(3), failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO as explained in the administrative protective order itself. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This notice of the final results of these reviews is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: June 27, 2012.

Background

    On March 7, 2012, the Department published its Preliminary Results. 
On April 10, 2012, Feili Group (Fujian) Co., Ltd. and Feili Furniture 
Development Limited Quanzhou City (``Feili''), a mandatory respondent 
in the administrative review, Cosco Home and Office Products 
(``Cosco'') and Target Corporation (``Target''), importer interested 
parties, provided surrogate value information. On April 17, 2012,\2\ 
Feili, Cosco, and Target submitted case briefs for the administrative 
review. On April 23, 2012, the Department received a rebuttal brief 
from Feili.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The Department postponed the briefing schedule and 
submission of surrogate values on March 15, 2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On April 10, 2012, Meco Corporation, a domestic producer of the 
like product and petitioner in the underlying investigation 
(``Petitioner''), withdrew its request for administrative review. On 
April 13, 2012, Feili and Cosco withdrew their requests for 
administrative review and requested that the Department rescind the 
ongoing review. On April 16, 2012, Target filed comments supporting the 
rescission of the review.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ We recognize that Petitioner's original review request, 
dated June 28, 2011, and the subsequent withdrawal request lacked 
certification of factual information. However, this lack of 
certification is of no consequence in continuing the review because 
we had timely requests from both Feili and Cosco.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We have conducted this administrative review in accordance with 
section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), 19 CFR 
351.241, and 19 CFR 351.213.

Assessment

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final 
results of this review. For assessment purposes, we calculated 
exporter/importer- (or customer) specific assessment rates for 
merchandise subject to this review. Where appropriate, we calculated an 
ad valorem rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total 
dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total entered 
values associated with those transactions. For duty-assessment rates 
calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad 
valorem rate against the entered customs values for the subject 
merchandise. Where appropriate, we calculated a per-unit rate for each 
importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for 
reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated 
with those transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this 
basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting per-unit rate against 
the entered quantity of the subject merchandise. Where an importer- (or 
customer) specific assessment rate is de minimis under 19 CFR 
351.106(c) (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), the Department will instruct 
CBP to assess that importer (or customer's) entries of subject 
merchandise without regard to antidumping duties. The Department 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 
days after publication of the final results of these reviews.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Feili, because 
the rate is zero, no cash deposit will be required; (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above 
that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 
exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for 
all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to 
be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-
wide rate established in the final results of this review (i.e., 70.71 
percent); and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise 
which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that supplied that non-PRC 
exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during the review period. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.402(f)(3), failure to comply with this requirement could result in 
the Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties 
occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO as explained in the administrative protective order itself. Timely 
written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    This notice of the final results of these reviews is issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: June 27, 2012.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
