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).

(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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On September 1, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on NWR from the PRC.1 On September 23, 2011, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on NWR from the PRC for the period September 1, 2010, through August 31, 2011.2 On September 21, 29th, and 30th, 2011, the Department received timely requests in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2) for an administrative review from Weifang Dongfang Ribbon Weaving Co., Ltd. (‘‘Weifang Dongfang’’), Stribbons (Guangzhou) Ltd. (‘‘Stribbons Guangzhou’’), Stribbons (Nanyang) MNC, Ltd. (‘‘Stribbons MNC’’), Yangzhou Bestpak Gifts & Crafts Col, Ltd. (‘‘Bestpak’’), and Precious Planet Ribbons & Bows Co., Ltd. (‘‘Precious Planet’’). On September 30, 2011, the Department also received a timely request from Berwick Offray LLC and its wholly-owned subsidiary Lion Ribbon Company, Inc. (collectively, ‘‘Petitioners’’), in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on NWR from the PRC for ten companies: Yama Ribbons and Bows Co., Ltd.

On November 23, 2011, the Department received comments from Stribbons (Guangzhou) Ltd., Stribbons (Nanyang) MNC, Ltd., Bestpak and Petitioners. After examining the CBP data and the comments from the interested parties, the Department concluded that the import data was reported using inconsistent units of measurement. The Department was, therefore, unable to select mandatory respondents based soley on this data. On December 6, 2011, to clarify the import data on the record, the Department issued quantity and value (‘‘Q&V’’) questionnaires to exporters who allegedly had imports of NWR during the POR according to the CBP import data on the record. The Department requested that the companies report the Q&V of their POR exports and/or shipments of NWR to the United States using specified units of measurement. The Department also received Q&V submissions from Hubscher Ribbon Corp., Ltd. (‘‘Hubschercorp’’) and Precious Planet on December 20, 2011.4 Because the PRC is a non-market economy (‘‘NME’’), companies wishing to receive a separate antidumping rate for purposes of this administrative review were required to file a timely separate rate application or separate rate certification. The separate rate application and/or certification in this case were due within 60 days from the initiation of the antidumping administrative review,5 no later than 3 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 67133 (October 31, 2011) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). 4 See Shanghai Dayspring Gifts Corp.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 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
