AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:31 Aug 20, 2012 Jkt 226001 Background On June 21, 2012, the Department published the affirmative Preliminary Determination of circumvention of the antidumping Order on honey from the PRC. The Department did not receive any comments from interested parties on this determination. Changes Since the Preliminary Determination We have not made any changes to the Preliminary Determination. Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are natural honey, artificial honey containing more than 50 percent natural honey by weight, preparations of natural honey containing more than 50 percent natural honey by weight and flavored honey. The subject merchandise includes all grades and colors of honey whether in liquid, creamed, comb, cut comb, or chunk form, and whether packaged for retail or in bulk form. The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable under 1 See Honey from the People’s Republic of China: Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Circumvention of the Antidumping Duty Order, 77 FR 37378 (June 21, 2012) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). 2 See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order; Honey From the People’s Republic of China, 66 FR 63670 (December 10, 2001) (‘‘Order’’). PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 subheadings 0409.00.00, 1702.90.90, 2106.90.99, 0409.00.0010, 0409.00.0035, 0409.00.0005, 0409.00.0045, 0409.00.0056, and 0409.00.0065 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the Department’s written description of the merchandise under order is dispositive. Merchandise Subject to the Anticircumvention Inquiry The merchandise subject to the anticircumvention inquiry are blends of honey and rice syrup, regardless of the percentage of honey they contain, from the PRC. International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 781(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), we notified the International Trade Commission (‘‘ITC’’) of the proposed inclusion of blends of honey and rice syrup in the antidumping duty order on honey from the PRC.3 The ITC determined that consultations were not necessary.4 Final Affirmative Determination of Circumvention As there is no basis for the Department to reconsider its decision, we continue to find that blends of honey and rice syrup are later-developed merchandise. As explained in the Preliminary Determination, the evidence on the record demonstrates that blends of honey and rice syrup were not commercially available at the time that the investigation was initiated and these blends are materially different from the merchandise under consideration at the time of the investigation and, in particular, different from the honey blends specifically excluded under the Order. Additionally, all honey rice syrup blends, regardless of the percentage of honey they contain, meet the criteria under sections 781(d)(1)(A–E) of the Act. Therefore, the Department determines that blends of honey and rice syrup, regardless of the percentage of honey they contain, from the PRC are later-developed merchandise within the meaning of section 781(d) of the Act, and are within the scope of the Order. 3 See the Department’s letter to the ITC dated May 14, 2012, Re: Anticircumvention Inquiry of the Antidumping Duty Order on Honey from the People’s Republic of China. 4 See Memorandum To: The File, From: Josh Startup Trade Compliance Analyst, Office 9 Import Administration Re: Letter from the International Trade Commission (‘‘ITC’’) Regarding the Anticircumvention Inquiry, dated July 17, 2012, at Attachment 1.
