SUMMARY: On December 28, 2010, the Department initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof (diamond sawblades) from the People’s Republic of China (the PRC). The period of review is January 23, 2009, through October 31, 2010. The Department is rescinding this review in part. DATES: Effective Date: August 8, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Rescission of Administrative Review in Part On December 28, 2010, based on timely requests for an administrative review, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades from the PRC.1 In accordance 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 81565 (December 28, 2010). PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review ‘‘if a party that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.’’ On March 28, 2011, the petitioner, Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers Coalition, withdrew its request for review of sales of subject merchandise with respect to Hebei Jikai Industrial Group Co., Ltd. (Hebei Jikai) and Jiangyin Likn Industry Co., Ltd. (Jiangyin Likn). These two companies have separate rates from a prior segment of this proceeding.2 In Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent to Rescind Review in Part, 76 FR 76135 (December 6, 2011), we inadvertently assigned the PRC-wide rate to these companies. However, it is the Department’s practice to rescind an administrative review with respect to a company that has a separate rate from a prior segment of the proceeding where the only party that requested a review timely withdrew its request.3 On June 4, 2012, the Department deferred issuing the final results of this administrative review in order to investigate further serious allegations of fraud in the concurrent administrative review of diamond sawblades and parts thereof from Korea.4 These allegations involve Korean affiliates of a Chinese mandatory respondent (Weihai Xiangguang Mechanical Industrial Co., Ltd.) and a Chinese separate-rate company (Qingdao Shinhan Diamond Industrial Co., Ltd.). That said, because we received letters withdrawing the requests for review of Hebei Jikai and Jiangyin Likn within the 90-day time limit, and we received no other requests for review of these companies, the Department is rescinding this review with respect diamond sawblades from the PRC exported by these two companies in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border 2 See Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final Partial Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances: Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China, 71 FR 29303 (May 22, 2006). 3 See, e.g., Certain Steel Threaded Rod From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the Administrative Review, Intent To Rescind, and Rescission, in Part, 77 FR 27022, 27023 (May 8, 2012). 4 See Memorandum from Gary Taverman to Paul Piquado titled ‘‘Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the Republic of Korea and the People’s Republic of China: Deferral of the Final Results of the First Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews’’ dated June 4, 2012.

and use of mail, landline telephone, and internet modes. The 2013 
Alternative Contact Strategy Test is the first test to support this 
research.
    The Census Bureau will test alternate contact information through a 
self-response test. Telephone numbers obtained from commercial vendors 
will be used to contact 40,000 households. Information on the

confirm and collect contact information such as address, telephone, 
cell, and email.
    The Census Bureau plans to conduct the 2013 Alternative Contact 
Strategy Test data collection in early winter of 2013. The specific 
data collection start and end dates along with the duration of the data

however, expects that the duration of the data collection period will 
be about a month.
