Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), we find that Yingqing’s NSR request meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a NSR for the shipment of steel wire garment hangers from the PRC produced and exported by Yingqing.8 The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is October 1, 2011, through September 30, 2012.9 The Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this NSR no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and the final results no later than 270 days from the date of initiation.10 It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economies (‘‘NMEs’’), to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the NME entity-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to Yingqing, which will include a section requesting information with regard to its export activities for separate rate purposes. The NSR will proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that Yingqing is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of subject merchandise.

``Yingqing'').\2\ Yingqing has certified that it is the producer and 
exporter of the subject merchandise upon which the request was 
based.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Steel Wire Garment 
Hangers from the People's Republic of China, 73 FR 58111 (October 6, 
2008).
    \2\ See generally Yingqing's NSR request dated October 22, 2012.

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR

the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Yingqing certified that, 
since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated 
with any PRC exporter or producer who exported subject merchandise to 
the United States during the POI, including those respondents not 
individually examined during the investigation.\5\ As required by 19

Initiation of New Shipper Reviews

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1), we find that Yingqing's NSR request meets the threshold 
requirements for initiation of a NSR for the shipment of steel wire 
garment hangers from the PRC produced and exported by Yingqing.\8\ The 
period of review (``POR'') is October 1, 2011, through September 30, 
2012.\9\ The Department intends to issue the preliminary results of 
this NSR no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and the 
final results no later than 270 days from the date of initiation.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See ``Memorandum to the File, from Catherine Bertrand,

concurrently with this notice.
    \9\ See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A).
    \10\ See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It is the Department's usual practice, in cases involving non-
market economies (``NMEs''), to require that a company seeking to 
establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the 
NME entity-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence 
of government control over the company's export activities. 
Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to Yingqing, which will 
include a section requesting information with regard to its export 
activities for separate rate purposes. The NSR will proceed if the 
response provides sufficient indication that Yingqing is not subject to 
either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its 
exports of subject merchandise.
    We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to allow, at 
the option of the importer, the posting, until the completion of the 
NSR, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of 
the subject merchandise from Yingqing in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Yingqing 
certified that it produced and exported the subject merchandise, the 
sale of which is the basis for this NSR request, we will apply the 
bonding privilege to Yingqing only for subject merchandise which 
Yingqing both produced and exported.
    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
this NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative 
protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 19 CFR 351.306.
    This initiation and notice are published in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i).
