The B&I program is administered by the Rural Business Service (RBS) through Rural Development State and sub-State offices serving each State. RBS will collect information using various forms from the lender and the borrower. This information is vital for making prudent financial decisions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with Background On April 10, 2012, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order on solid fertilizer grade ammonium nitrate (ammonium nitrate) from the Russian Federation (Russia) for the period of review (POR) of May 2, 2011, through March 31, 2012.1 The Department received timely-filed requests from JSC Acron (Acron) and MCC EuroChem (EuroChem) (the respondents) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ammonium nitrate from Russia. On May 29, 2012, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ammonium nitrate from Russia for Acron and EuroChem.2 On the same date, we: (1) Issued the antidumping questionnaire to these companies; and (2) requested information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on imports of subject merchandise from these respondents during the POR, in accordance with our practice. In June 2012, we received the requested CBP information, which showed that neither Acron nor EuroChem had entries of subject merchandise during the POR. On June 5, 2012, we placed a memorandum on the administrative record of this case stating that our review of the CBP database showed no POR entries of subject merchandise by the respondents.3 We released the results of our CBP data query to the respondents and CF Industries, Inc. and El Dorado Chemical Company (collectively, the petitioners). We received no comments on the CBP data. On June 20, 2012, Acron submitted its response to section A of the Department’s antidumping questionnaire, which indicated that 1 See Ammonium Nitrate from Russia: Correction to Notice of Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 77 FR 21527 (Apr. 10, 2012). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 31586, 31570 (May 29, 2012). 3 See the June 5, 2012, memorandum from Elizabeth Eastwood, Senior Analyst, to the file, entitled, ‘‘2011–2012 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Solid Fertilizer Grade Ammonium Nitrate (Ammonium Nitrate) from the Russian Federation (Russia): Data Query Request.’’ VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:18 Oct 26, 2012 Jkt 229001 Acron had a shipment of subject merchandise to the United States in March 2012; however, the entry documentation submitted with this response showed that the entry associated with this shipment was not made until after the end of the POR. See Acron’s June 20, 2012, response at Exhibits 1 and 19. On June 22, 2012, EuroChem submitted a partial response to section A of the Department’s antidumping duty questionnaire, which stated that EuroChem also had a shipment of subject merchandise to the United States in March 2012. Unlike Acron, however, EuroChem provided a CBP 7501 form indicating that the entry associated with this shipment occurred on March 26, 2012. See EuroChem’s June 22, 2012, submission at Exhibit 2. Because this information was not consistent with the underlying CBP data, on June 25, 2012, we queried the CBP database as to the status of the particular entry in question. According to the CBP database, although EuroChem submitted its entry documentation on March 26, 2012, the entry was not accepted by CBP as entered until after the end of the POR. Because neither respondent had an entry of subject merchandise into the United States during the POR, on June 28, 2012, the Department placed a memorandum on the record notifying interested parties of its intent to rescind this administrative review.4 We invited parties to comment on our Intent to Rescind Memo. On July 9, 2012, we received comments from the respondents, and on July 16, 2012, we received rebuttal comments from the petitioners. On August 24, 2012, we placed a memorandum on the record regarding EuroChem’s entry date, to which EuroChem responded on September 4, 2012. Rescission of Review It is the Department’s practice to rescind an administrative review pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) when there are no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR subject to the antidumping duty order and for which liquidation is suspended.5 At the end of the 4 See the June 28, 2012, memorandum from Holly Phelps, Analyst, to James Maeder, Director, Office 2, entitled, ‘‘Intent to Rescind Administrative Review: 2011–2012 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Solid Fertilizer Grade Ammonium Nitrate from the Russian Federation’’ (Intent to Rescind Memo). 5 See, e.g., Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil: Notice of Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 32498 (June 1, 2012); and Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65533 administrative review, the suspended entries are liquidated at the assessment rate computed for the review period.

As discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum (Decision Memo) accompanying this notice, we find that neither respondent made entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Therefore, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on ammonium nitrate from Russia pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On April 10, 2012, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register a notice of ``Opportunity to Request 
Administrative Review'' of the antidumping duty order on solid 
fertilizer grade ammonium nitrate (ammonium nitrate) from the Russian 
Federation (Russia) for the period of review (POR) of May 2, 2011, 
through March 31, 2012.\1\ The Department received timely-filed 
requests from JSC Acron (Acron) and MCC EuroChem (EuroChem) (the 
respondents) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ammonium nitrate 
from Russia. On May 29, 2012, the Department published a notice of 
initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
ammonium nitrate from Russia for Acron and EuroChem.\2\ On the same 
date, we: (1) Issued the antidumping questionnaire to these companies; 
and (2) requested information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) on imports of subject merchandise from these respondents during 
the POR, in accordance with our practice. In June 2012, we received the 
requested CBP information, which showed that neither Acron nor EuroChem 
had entries of subject merchandise during the POR. On June 5, 2012, we 
placed a memorandum on the administrative record of this case stating 
that our review of the CBP database showed no POR entries of subject 
merchandise by the respondents.\3\ We released the results of our CBP 
data query to the respondents and CF Industries, Inc. and El Dorado 
Chemical Company (collectively, the petitioners). We received no 
comments on the CBP data.

Senior Analyst, to the file, entitled, ``2011-2012 Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review: Solid Fertilizer Grade Ammonium Nitrate 
(Ammonium Nitrate) from the Russian Federation (Russia): Data Query 
Request.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On June 20, 2012, Acron submitted its response to section A of the 
Department's antidumping questionnaire, which indicated that Acron had 
a shipment of subject merchandise to the United States in March 2012; 
however, the entry documentation submitted with this response showed 
that the entry associated with this shipment was not made until after 
the end of the POR. See Acron's June 20, 2012, response at Exhibits 1 
and 19.
    On June 22, 2012, EuroChem submitted a partial response to section 
A of the Department's antidumping duty questionnaire, which stated that 
EuroChem also had a shipment of subject merchandise to the United 
States in March 2012. Unlike Acron, however, EuroChem provided a CBP 
7501 form indicating that the entry associated with this shipment 
occurred on March 26, 2012. See EuroChem's June 22, 2012, submission at 
Exhibit 2. Because this information was not consistent with the 
underlying CBP data, on June 25, 2012, we queried the CBP database as 
to the status of the particular entry in question. According to the CBP 
database, although EuroChem submitted its entry documentation on March 
26, 2012, the entry was not accepted by CBP as entered until after the 
end of the POR.
    Because neither respondent had an entry of subject merchandise into 
the United States during the POR, on June 28, 2012, the Department 
placed a memorandum on the record notifying interested parties of its 
intent to rescind this administrative review.\4\ We invited parties to 
comment on our Intent to Rescind Memo. On July 9, 2012, we received 
comments from the respondents, and on July 16, 2012, we received 
rebuttal comments from the petitioners.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See the June 28, 2012, memorandum from Holly Phelps, 
Analyst, to James Maeder, Director, Office 2, entitled, ``Intent to 
Rescind Administrative Review: 2011-2012 Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review of Solid Fertilizer Grade Ammonium Nitrate 
from the Russian Federation'' (Intent to Rescind Memo).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On August 24, 2012, we placed a memorandum on the record regarding 
EuroChem's entry date, to which EuroChem responded on September 4, 
2012.

Rescission of Review

    It is the Department's practice to rescind an administrative review 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) when there are no reviewable entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR subject to the antidumping duty 
order and for which liquidation is suspended.\5\ At the end of the 
administrative review, the suspended entries are liquidated at the 
assessment rate computed for the review period. See 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(l). Therefore, for an administrative review to be conducted, 
there must be a reviewable, suspended entry to be liquidated at the 
newly calculated assessment rate. As discussed in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum (Decision Memo) accompanying this notice, we find 
that neither respondent made entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR. Therefore, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty 
order on ammonium nitrate from Russia pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).
