SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain lined paper products (CLPP) from India. The period of review is September 1, 2010, through August 31, 2011 and the review covers 57 producers/exporters of the subject merchandise. We have preliminarily found that sales of the subject merchandise have been made at prices below normal value. DATES: Effective Date: October 9, 2012.

AGENCY: Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order is certain lined paper products. The merchandise subject to this order is currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 4811.90.9035, 4811.90.9080, 4820.30.0040, 4810.22.5044, 4811.90.9050, 4811.90.9090, 4820.10.2010, 4820.10.2020, 4820.10.2030, 4820.10.2040, 4820.10.2050, 4820.10.2060, and 4820.10.4000.

Methodology [FR Doc. 2012–24827 Filed 10–5–12; 8:45 am] VerDate Mar<15>2010 DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Jkt 229001 The Department has conducted this review in accordance with Section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61381 773 of the Act. In making these findings, we have relied, in part, on facts available and because one or more respondents did not act to the best of their ability to respond to the Department’s requests for information, we have drawn an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available. See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. In accordance with section 773(b) of the Act, we disregarded the below-cost sales of Riddhi in the most recent administrative review of this company completed before the initiation of this review. With regard to SAB, petitioners filed an allegation demonstrating that SAB made sales below the cost of production. Therefore, we have reasonable grounds to believe or suspect that Riddhi’s and SAB’s sales of the foreign like product under consideration for the determination of normal value in this review may have been made at prices below the cost of production (COP) as provided by section 773(b)(2)(A)(ii) of the Act. Accordingly, pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act, we have conducted a COP analysis of Riddhi’s and SAB’s sales in India in this review. Based on this test, we disregarded certain sales made by Riddhi and SAB in their respective comparison markets which were made at below-cost prices. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see the memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Lined Paper Products from India’’ (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with these results and hereby adopted by this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Import Administration’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit (CRU), room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. E:\FR\FM\09OCN1.SGM 09OCN1
