SUMMARY: On November 14, 2012,1 the United States Court of International Trade (‘‘CIT’’) sustained the Department of Commerce’s (‘‘the Department’’) results of redetermination 2 pursuant to the CIT’s FENC Remand Order.3 Consistent with the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) in Timken,4 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,5 the Department is notifying the public that the final judgment in this case is not in harmony with the Department’s Final Results 6 and is amending the final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyester staple fiber from Taiwan covering the period of review (‘‘POR’’) May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010, with respect to the margin assigned to Far Eastern New Century Corporation (‘‘FENC’’). emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: 1 See Far Eastern New Century Corporation v.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Subsequent to completion of its administrative review under the antidumping duty order on polyester staple fiber from Taiwan, FENC challenged certain aspects of the Department’s Final Results at the CIT. On August 29, 2012, the CIT remanded to the Department its calculation of FENC’s dumping margin to correct certain ministerial errors.8 The Department filed its Remand Results on October 15, 2012. On November 14, 2012, the CIT upheld the Department’s Remand Results wherein we recalculated FENC’s dumping margin employing the results of the Final Results’ comparison market calculations rather than those calculated for the Preliminary Results.9 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the CAFC has held that, pursuant to section 516(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision.10 The CIT’s November 14, 2012, judgment sustaining the Remand Results constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with the Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court 7 Because the deadline, November 24, 2012, falls on a Saturday, the deadline is postponed until the next business day.

The cash deposit rate will remain the company-specific rate established for the subsequent and most recent period during which the respondent was reviewed. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court decision with respect to FENC, we are amending the Final Results with respect to the margin for FENC. The revised dumping margin is as follows: Producer and exporter Weightedaverage margin (percent) Far Eastern New Century Corporation ....................... 0.75 If the CIT’s ruling is not appealed or, if appealed, upheld by the CAFC, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping duties on entries of the subject merchandise produced and exported by FENC during the POR at 0.75 percent. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(e)(1), 751(a)(1), and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: November 23, 2012. Ronald K.

AGENCY: Background Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), may request, in accordance with 19 CFR E:\FR\FM\03DEN1.SGM 03DEN1 71580 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 232 / Monday, December 3, 2012 / Notices 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation. All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by the Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting date. Respondent Selection In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (‘‘APO’’) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review. In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, the Department has found that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, the Department will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, if the Department determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, the Department will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, the Department will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that has requested a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that the Department may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. In order to provide parties additional certainty with respect to when the Department will exercise its discretion to extend this 90-day deadline, interested parties are advised that, with regard to reviews requested on the basis of anniversary months on or after December 2012, the Department does not intend to extend the 90-day deadline unless the requestor demonstrates that an extraordinary circumstance has prevented it from submitting a timely withdrawal request. Determinations by the Department to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis. The Department is providing this notice on its Web site, as well as in its ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ notices, so that interested parties will be aware of the manner in which the Department intends to exercise its discretion in the future. Opportunity to Request a Review: Not later than the last day of December 2012,1 interested parties may request administrative review of the following orders, findings, or suspended investigations, with anniversary dates in December for the following periods: emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Period of review Antidumping Duty Proceedings ARGENTINA: Honey .....................................................................................................................................................................

For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ‘‘gap’’ period, of the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the period of review.

Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E. Waters, Office of AD/CVD 
Operations, Customs Unit, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482-
4735.

Background

    Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an 
antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended 
investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), may request, in 
accordance with 19 CFR

[[Page 71580]]

351.213, that the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') conduct 
an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty 
order, finding, or suspended investigation.
    All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by the 
Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from 
the applicable starting date.

Respondent Selection

    In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to 
requests made for the orders identified below, the Department intends 
to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend 
to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (``APO'') 
to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the 
initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent 
selection within 21 days of publication of the initiation Federal 
Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in 
commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on 
the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter 
as possible. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and 
respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on 
the record of the review.
    In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit 
individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection 
under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act:
    In general, the Department has found that determinations concerning 
whether particular companies should be ``collapsed'' (i.e., treated as 
a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) 
require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, 
which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, the 
Department will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent 
selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the 
respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to 
collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping 
proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper 
review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to 
this review, if the Department determined, or continued to treat, that 
company as collapsed with others, the Department will assume that such 
companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them 
for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, the Department will not 
collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are 
requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously 
were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which 
they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete 
the Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent 
selection, in general each company must report volume and value data 
separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other 
party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity 
with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company 
or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding 
where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that has requested a 
review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The 
regulation provides that the Department may extend this time if it is 
reasonable to do so. In order to provide parties additional certainty 
with respect to when the Department will exercise its discretion to 
extend this 90-day deadline, interested parties are advised that, with 
regard to reviews requested on the basis of anniversary months on or 
after December 2012, the Department does not intend to extend the 90-
day deadline unless the requestor demonstrates that an extraordinary 
circumstance has prevented it from submitting a timely withdrawal 
request. Determinations by the Department to extend the 90-day deadline 
will be made on a case-by-case basis.
    The Department is providing this notice on its Web site, as well as 
in its ``Opportunity to Request Administrative Review'' notices, so 
that interested parties will be aware of the manner in which the 
Department intends to exercise its discretion in the future.
    Opportunity to Request a Review: Not later than the last day of 
December 2012,\1\ interested parties may request administrative review 
of the following orders, findings, or suspended investigations, with 
anniversary dates in December for the following periods:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suspension Agreements

    None.
    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), an interested party as 
defined by section 771(9) of the Act may request in writing that the 
Secretary conduct an administrative review. For both antidumping and 
countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the 
individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or 
an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for 
which it is requesting a review. In addition, a domestic interested 
party or an interested party described in section 771(9)(B) of the Act 
must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular 
producers or exporters.\2\ If the interested party intends for the 
Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer 
if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which 
were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of 
origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must 
state specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the 
request is intended to cover.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ If the review request involves a non-market economy and the 
parties subject to the review request do not qualify for separate 
rates, all other exporters of subject merchandise from the non-
market economy country who do not have a separate rate will be 
covered by the review as part of the single entity of which the 
named firms are a part.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate 
in prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an 
administrative review of that party absent new information as to the 
party's location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request 
for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it 
requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation 
of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same 
time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to 
determine if the interested party's attempts were

[[Page 71582]]

reasonable, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii).
    As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), the 
Department has clarified its practice with respect to the collection of 
final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate 
firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in 
determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise 
subject to antidumping findings and orders. See also the Import 
Administration Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov.
    All requests must be filed electronically in Import 
Administration's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized 
Electronic Service System (``IA ACCESS'') on the IA ACCESS Web site at 
http://iaaccess.trade.gov. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective 
Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). Further, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on 
the petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request.
    The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of 
``Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation'' for requests received 
by the last day of December 2012. If the Department does not receive, 
by the last day of December 2012, a request for review of entries 
covered by an order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this 
notice and for the period identified above, the Department will 
instruct CBP to assess antidumping or countervailing duties on those 
entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit of (or bond for) estimated 
antidumping or countervailing duties required on those entries at the 
time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption and to 
continue to collect the cash deposit previously ordered.
    For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no 
assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ``gap'' period, of 
the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the period of review.
    This notice is not required by statute but is published as a 
service to the international trading community.

    Dated: November 14, 2012.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
