(Bauhaus), located in Saltillo, Mississippi. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on February 28, 2013. The Bauhaus facility is located within Site 16 of FTZ 158 and currently has authority to conduct cut-and-sew activity using certain foreign microdenier suede upholstery fabrics to produce upholstered furniture and related parts (upholstery cover sets) on a restricted basis (see, Board Order 1600, 74 FR 262–263, 1–5–2009). Board Order 1600 authorized the production of upholstered furniture (sofa, chairs, and recliners) for a five-year period, with a scope of authority that only provides VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:02 Apr 05, 2013 Jkt 229001 FTZ savings on a limited quantity (3.5 million square yards/year) of foreign origin, micro-denier suede upholstery fabric finished with a hot caustic soda solution process. All foreign upholstery fabric other than micro-denier suede fabric used in Bauhaus’ production within FTZ 158 is subject to full customs duties. The current request seeks to extend the company’s current FTZ authority indefinitely. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials and components and specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Bauhaus from customs duty payments on the foreign microdenier suede upholstery fabric used in export production.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) from Taiwan. The period of review (POR) is September 13, 2010, through February 29, 2012. The review covers one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise, Chang Chun Petrochemical Co., Ltd. (CCPC). We preliminarily find that CCPC has not sold subject merchandise at less than normal value.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is PVA. The PVA subject to the order is currently classifiable under subheading 3905.30.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the memorandum from Edward C. Yang, Senior Director, China/ Non-Market Economy Unit, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Polyvinyl Alcohol from Taiwan; 2010–2012’’ dated concurrently with this notice (‘‘Preliminary Decision Memorandum’’), which is hereby adopted by this notice. The written description is dispositive. 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’’). Access to IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// iaaccess.trade.gov and is available to all parties 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)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. In accordance with section 773(b) of the Act, we disregarded certain sales by CCPC in the home market which were made at below-cost prices. To determine the appropriate comparison method, the Department applied a ‘‘differential pricing’’ analysis and has preliminarily determined to use the average-toaverage method in making comparisons of export price and normal value for PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 CCPC. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Results of Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that a weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for CCPC for the period September 13, 2010, through February 29, 2012. Disclosure and Public Comment Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c), interested parties may submit cases briefs not later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.1 Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed not later than five days after the date for filing case briefs.2 Parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.3 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to request a hearing, or to participate if one is requested, must submit a written request to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, filed electronically via IA ACCESS.

Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If CCPC’s weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate an importerspecific assessment rate on the basis of 1 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1). 19 CFR 351.309(d). 3 See 19 CFR 351.309(d)(2) and (d)(2). 2 See E:\FR\FM\08APN1.SGM 08APN1

Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 158--Vicksburg/Jackson, Mississippi; 
Notification of Proposed Production Activity; H.M. Richards, Inc., 
(Upholstered Furniture), Guntown, Mississippi

    The Greater Mississippi Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 
158, submitted a notification of proposed production activity on behalf 
of H.M. Richards, Inc. (HMRI), located in Guntown, Mississippi. The 
notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the 
FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on February 28, 2013.
    The HMRI facility is located within Site 15 of FTZ 158 and 
currently has authority to conduct cut-and-sew activity using certain 
foreign micro-denier suede upholstery fabrics to produce upholstered 
furniture and related parts (upholstery cover sets) on a restricted 
basis (see, Board Order 1599, 74 FR 263, 1-5-2009). Board Order 1599 
authorized the production of upholstered furniture (sofa, chairs, and 
recliners) for a five-year period, with a scope of authority that only 
provides FTZ savings on a limited quantity (3.6 million square yards/
year) of foreign origin, micro-denier suede upholstery fabric finished 
with a hot caustic soda solution process. All foreign upholstery fabric 
other than micro-denier suede fabric used in HMRI's production within 
FTZ 158 is subject to full customs duties.
    The current request seeks to extend the company's current FTZ 
authority indefinitely, with an increase to 6.5 million square yards 
per year for the FTZ Board-imposed limit on the volume of foreign-
origin micro-denier suede upholstery fabric. Pursuant to 15 CFR 
400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status 
materials and components and specific finished products described in 
the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently 
authorized by the FTZ Board.
    Production under FTZ procedures could exempt HMRI from customs duty 
payments on the foreign micro-denier suede upholstery fabric used in 
export production. On its domestic sales, HMRI would be able to apply 
the finished upholstery cover set (i.e., furniture part) or finished 
furniture duty rate (free) for the micro-denier suede fabric listed 
below. Customs duties also could

[[Page 20890]]

possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment.
    The proposed scope of authority under FTZ procedures would only 
involve micro-denier suede upholstery fabrics finished with a hot 
caustic soda solution process, as detailed in the notification (duty 
rate ranges from 2.7 to 17.2%). All other material inputs used in the 
production activity would be in domestic (duty paid) status.
    Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions 
shall be addressed to the FTZ Board's Executive Secretary at the 
address below. The closing period for their receipt is May 20, 2013.
    A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection 
at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, 
Room 21013, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., 
Washington, DC 20230-0002, and in the ``Reading Room'' section of the
