Download as PDF 9368 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 27 / Friday, February 8, 2013 / Notices accordance with section 734(i)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Pursuant to section 734(i)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department would resume the investigation as if it had published the affirmative preliminary determination under section 733(b) of the Act on the effective date of the termination. As explained in the Preliminary Determination (61 FR at 56609), the Department postponed the final determination until the 135th day after the date of the preliminary determination. The Department therefore would make its final determination in a resumed investigation within 135 days of termination of the 2008 Suspension Agreement, unless a new suspension agreement becomes effective. However, if the Department and substantially all of the growers/exporters of fresh tomatoes from Mexico sign a new suspension agreement, following the notice and comment period provided in accordance with section 734(c) of the Act, the resumed investigation would be suspended. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Intent To Terminate the Five-Year Sunset Review On December 3, 2012, the Department initiated a five-year sunset review of the suspended antidumping investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 77 FR 71684 (December 3, 2012). If the Department terminates the 2008 Suspension Agreement, there will no longer be a suspended investigation of which to conduct a sunset review. Therefore, the Department would terminate the sunset review of the suspended antidumping investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico, effective on the date of termination of the 2008 Suspension Agreement. International Trade Commission The Department has notified the International Trade Commission (ITC) of its intent to terminate the 2008 Suspension Agreement and resume the antidumping investigation. If the Department resumes the antidumping investigation, and if the Department makes a final affirmative determination in the investigation, the ITC is scheduled to make its final determination concerning injury within 45 days of publication of the Department’s final determination. If both the Department’s and the ITC’s final determinations are affirmative, the Department will issue an antidumping duty order. However, as indicated above, if the Department and VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:23 Feb 07, 2013 Jkt 229001 substantially all of the growers/ exporters of fresh tomatoes from Mexico sign a new suspension agreement, following the notice and comment period provided in accordance with section 734(c) of the Act, the resumed investigation would be suspended. Suspension of Liquidation If the Department terminates the 2008 Suspension Agreement and resumes the antidumping investigation as described above, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of entries of fresh tomatoes from Mexico that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the termination of the 2008 Suspension Agreement. CBP shall require antidumping duty cash deposits or bonds for entries of the subject merchandise based on the preliminary dumping margins, which range from 4.16 to 188.45 percent. See Preliminary Determination, 61 FR at 56615. Administrative Protective Order Access and Applicable Regulations The following requirements will apply if and during such time as the investigation is resumed. Because of the significant changes made to the administrative protective order (APO) process since the investigation, the Department will issue a new APO for any resumed investigation that will supersede the previously issued firmspecific APOs. Those authorized applicants that were granted APOs during the original investigation, as indicated in the most recent APO service list on the Department’s Web site, will continue to have access to business proprietary information under APO. Any new APO applications or necessary amendments for changes in staff under the pre-existing APOs should be submitted promptly, and in accordance with the Department’s regulations currently in effect. See section 777(c)(1) of the Act; 19 CFR 351.103, 351.304, 351.305 and 351.306. In addition, because of the significant changes made to the Department’s filing and certification requirements since the investigation, including electronic filing, the Department intends to apply its current regulations and practices with regard to filing and certification, should the antidumping investigation be resumed. See 19 CFR 351.303(b) and (g). However, with respect to the procedures for the conduct of any resumed investigation generally, including any possible suspension thereof, the Department’s regulations in effect in 1996 shall govern. See 19 CFR 351.701; San Vicente Camalu SPR de Ri v. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 United States, 491 F.Supp.2d 1186 (CIT 2007). This determination is issued and published in accordance with section 733(f) and 734(i) of the Act. Dated: February 4, 2013. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

A full description of the scope of the order is contained in 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 Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (‘‘Preliminary Decision Memorandum’’), which is 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, Room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:23 Feb 07, 2013 Jkt 229001 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. Methodology The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we preliminarily determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific. See sections 771(5)(B)and (D) of the Act regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and, section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity. See sections 776(a) and (b) 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. For further information, see ‘‘Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Finally, the Department was not able to make a preliminary determination of countervailability for certain programs because it requires additional information. See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at ‘‘Analysis of Programs—II. Programs For Which More Information is Required.’’ We intend to seek that information prior to our final results. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine a net subsidy rate of 7.33 percent for Wuxi and a net subsidy rate of 1.84 percent for Jiangsu Chengde for the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011.

for Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: 
Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from the People's Republic of 
China,'' dated concurrently with this notice (``Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum''), which is 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, 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.

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). For 
each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we preliminarily 
determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided 
financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, 
and that the subsidy is specific. See sections 771(5)(B)and (D) of the 
Act regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act 
regarding benefit; and, section 771(5A) of the Act regarding 
specificity. See sections 776(a) and (b) 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. 
For further information, see ``Use of Facts Otherwise Available and 
Adverse Inferences'' in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
    Finally, the Department was not able to make a preliminary 
determination of countervailability for certain programs because it 
requires additional information. See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 
``Analysis of Programs--II. Programs For Which More Information is 
Required.'' We intend to seek that information prior to our final 
results.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine a net 
subsidy rate of 7.33 percent for Wuxi and a net subsidy rate of 1.84 
percent for Jiangsu Chengde for the period January 1, 2011, through 
December 31, 2011.
