The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new subzones or ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for operators/ users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the FTZ Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally docketed on May 20, 2013. FTZ 146 was approved by the FTZ Board on February 11, 1988 (Board Order 371, 53 FR 5436, 2/24/1988) and expanded on April 18, 2000 (Board Order 1085, 65 FR 24675, 4/27/2000). The current zone includes the following sites: Site 1 (43 acres)—MidAmerica Air Center, Route 50, Lawrenceville, Lawrence County; and, Site 2 (62 acres)—Effingham Industrial Park, Effingham, Effingham County. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Clay, Crawford, Edwards, Hamilton, Lawrence, Richland and Wayne Counties, Illinois, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:25 May 29, 2013 Jkt 229001 would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Evansville Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone project to include both of the existing sites as ‘‘magnet’’ sites. The applicant is also requesting approval of the following ‘‘usage-driven’’ site: Proposed Site 3 (11.5 acres)—Hella Electronics Corporation, 1101 Vincennes Avenue, Flora, Clay County. The application would have no impact on FTZ 146’s previously authorized subzones. In accordance with the FTZ Board’s regulations, Elizabeth Whiteman of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the FTZ Board. 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 July 29, 2013. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to August 13, 2013. A copy of the application 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 FTZ Board’s Web site, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.

Methodology The Department is conducting this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.214. The Department calculated export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a nonmarket economy (‘‘NME’’) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, the Department calculated normal value in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. Specifically, we valued the respondent’s factors of production using the Philippines as the surrogate country, which is economically comparable to the PRC and a significant producer of comparable merchandise. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with these results and 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.

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(4), if an interested party submits factual information less than ten days before, on, or after (if the Department has extended the deadline), the applicable deadline for submission of such factual information, an interested party may submit factual information to rebut, clarify, or correct the factual 2 See 19 CFR 351.309(c). 19 CFR 351.309(d). 4 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 5 See 19 CFR 351.310(d). 3 See E:\FR\FM\30MYN1.SGM 30MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 104 / Thursday, May 30, 2013 / Notices information no later than ten days after such factual information is served on the interested party. However, the Department generally will not accept in the rebuttal submission additional or alternative surrogate value information not previously on the record, if the deadline for submission of surrogate value information has passed.6 Furthermore, the Department generally will not accept business proprietary information in either the surrogate value submissions or the rebuttals thereto, as the regulation regarding the submission of surrogate values allows only for the submission of publicly available information.7 Assessment Rates Upon issuing the final results of the new shipper review, the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this new shipper review. For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).8 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this new shipper review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by Power Dekor for this new shipper review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that the exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.9 The final results of this new shipper review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this new shipper review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For merchandise produced by Guangzhou Homebon Timber Manufacturing Co. Ltd. and exported by Power Dekor, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing producer/ exporter-specific combination rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRCwide entity; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC producer/exporter combination that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 351.214. The Department calculated 
export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the 
PRC is a nonmarket economy (``NME'') within the meaning of section 
771(18) of the Act, the Department calculated normal value in 
accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. Specifically, we valued the 
respondent's factors of production using the Philippines as the 
surrogate country, which is economically comparable to the PRC and a 
significant producer of comparable merchandise.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, dated 
concurrently with these results and 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.

    The Department will disclose calculations performed for these 
preliminary results to the parties within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). 
Interested parties may submit written comments no later than 30 days 
after the date of publication of these preliminary results of 
review.\2\ Rebuttals to written comments may be filed no later than 
five days after the written comments are filed.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c).
    \3\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of 
publication of this notice.\4\ Hearing requests should contain the 
following information: (1) The party's name, address, and telephone 
number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of the issues to 
be discussed. Oral presentations will be limited to issues raised in 
the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be 
notified of the time and date for the hearing to be held at the U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
    \5\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department will issue the final results of this new shipper 
review, which will include the results of its analysis of issues raised 
in any such comments, within 90 days of publication of these 
preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Deadline for Submission of Publicly Available Surrogate Value 
Information

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(ii), the deadline for 
submission of publicly available information to value factors of 
production under 19 CFR 351.408(c) is 20 days after the date of 
publication of the preliminary results. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.301(c)(4), if an interested party submits factual information less 
than ten days before, on, or after (if the Department has extended the 
deadline), the applicable deadline for submission of such factual 
information, an interested party may submit factual information to 
rebut, clarify, or correct the factual

[[Page 32369]]

information no later than ten days after such factual information is 
served on the interested party. However, the Department generally will 
not accept in the rebuttal submission additional or alternative 
surrogate value information not previously on the record, if the 
deadline for submission of surrogate value information has passed.\6\ 
Furthermore, the Department generally will not accept business 
proprietary information in either the surrogate value submissions or 
the rebuttals thereto, as the regulation regarding the submission of 
surrogate values allows only for the submission of publicly available 
information.\7\

Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final 
Rescission, in Part, 72 FR 58809 (October 17, 2007), and 
accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 2.
    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of the new shipper review, the 
Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of the final results of this new shipper 
review. For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-
average dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-
specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to 
the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this new shipper review when the 
importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of 
this review is above de minimis. Where either the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-
specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. 
The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment 
practice in NME cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for 
entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by 
Power Dekor for this new shipper review, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if the 
Department determines that the exporter under review had no shipments 
of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under 
that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be 
liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final results of this new shipper review shall be the basis for 
the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered 
by the final results of this review and for future deposits of 
estimated duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this new shipper review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For merchandise 
produced by Guangzhou Homebon Timber Manufacturing Co. Ltd. and 
exported by Power Dekor, the cash deposit rate will be that established 
in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de 
minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above 
that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing producer/
exporter-specific combination rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide 
entity; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which 
have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the 
rate applicable to the PRC producer/exporter combination that supplied 
that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: May 23, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
