Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 98 / Tuesday, May 21, 2013 / Notices Assessment Rates In accordance with the Final Modification,2 we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate entries covered in this review without regard to antidumping duties. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by myonic GmbH for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the country-specific all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements Because the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany has been revoked as a result of the Third Sunset Review, the Department will not issue cash deposit instructions at the conclusion of this administrative review. TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Notifications to Parties This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely notification of the destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. 2 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification).

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge (narrow woven ribbons) from Taiwan. Two of the companies for which this administrative review was requested, Intercontinental Skyline and Pacific Imports, failed to respond to the Department’s quantity and value questionnaire. As a result, we have preliminarily assigned these companies a margin based on adverse facts available (AFA). The period of review (POR) is September 1, 2011, through August 31, 2012. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.

In these preliminary results, we have relied on facts available and, because the respondents did not act to the best of their abilities to respond to the Department’s request for information, we have drawn an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.2 Pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act, we are relying on information from the petition in order to ensure that the AFA rate is sufficiently adverse so as to induce cooperation. Accordingly, we have preliminarily determined to apply a 137.20 percent rate as AFA for Intercontinental Skyline and Pacific Imports.

Administration, dated concurrently with these results, for a 
complete description of the scope of the order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). In these 
preliminary results, we have relied on facts available and, because the 
respondents did not act to the best of their abilities to respond to 
the Department's request for information, we have drawn an adverse 
inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act, we are relying on 
information from the petition in order to ensure that the AFA rate is 
sufficiently adverse so as to induce cooperation. Accordingly, we have 
preliminarily determined to apply a 137.20 percent rate as AFA for 
Intercontinental Skyline and Pacific Imports. For a full description of 
the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 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).

and in the Central Records Unit (CRU), 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

Department intends to instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on POR 
entries of the subject merchandise produced or exported by 
Intercontinental Skyline and Pacific Imports at the rate of 137.20 
percent of the entered value.\7\ The final results of this review shall 
be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of

their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that
