Download as PDF 56656 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 178 / Friday, September 13, 2013 / Notices Order’’). Based upon these requests, on June 3, 2013, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the Order covering the period April 1, 2012, to March 31, 2013.1 The Department incorrectly included three companies in the Initiation Notice, which was corrected in the August Initiation Notice, where the Department removed these three companies and instead initiated on two other companies.2 The Department has initiated an administrative review with respect to 80 companies. On July 5, 2013, Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review on Certified Products International Inc. (‘‘CPI’’); Gem-Year Industrial Co., Ltd. (‘‘Gem Year’’); Haiyan Julong Standard Part Co., Ltd. (‘‘Haiyan Julong’’); Jiashan Zhongsheng Metal Products Co., Ltd. (‘‘Jiashan Zhongsheng’’); Jiaxing Xinyue Standard Part Co., Ltd. (‘‘Jiaxing Xinyue’’); Suntec Industries Co., Ltd. (‘‘Suntec Industries’’); and Shanghai Prime Machinery Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shanghai Prime’’).3 Petitioner was the only party to request a review of these companies. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Partial Rescission Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Petitioner’s requests for review of CPI, Gem Year, Haiyan Julong, Jiashan Zhongsheng, Jiaxing Xinyue, Suntec Industries, and Shanghai Prime were withdrawn within the 90-day period. Because Petitioner’s requests for review were timely 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 33052, 33056–8 (June 3, 2013) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 53128, 53130 (August 28, 2013) (‘‘August Initiation Notice’’) at footnote 6. Moreover, in August Initiation Notice at footnote 5, the Department intended to state that ‘‘{i}f one of the companies for which a review was requested does not qualify for a separate rate, all other exporters of Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the PRC who have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered by this review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named exporters are a part.’’ 3 We note that there are additional companies for which all review requests were withdrawn within the 90 day period. See Letter to the Department from Petitioner, Re: Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: Petitioners’ Withdrawal of Review Requests for Certain Companies, (July 5, 2013). These additional companies for which all review requests were withdrawn do not have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding. We intend to address the disposition of these companies in the preliminary results of this review. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:23 Sep 12, 2013 Jkt 229001 withdrawn and because no other party requested a review of CPI, Gem Year, Haiyan Julong, Jiashan Zhongsheng, Jiaxing Xinyue, Suntec Industries, and Shanghai Prime, and each have separate rates from a prior segment of the proceeding, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are partially rescinding this review with respect to these companies. Assessment Rates The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.4 Because CPI, Gem Year, Haiyan Julong, Jiashan Zhongsheng, Jiaxing Xinyue, Suntec Industries, and Shanghai Prime have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, 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 Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. 4 See PO 00000 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Title V of the Trade and Development Act of 2000 (the Act) created two tariff rate quotas (TRQs), providing for temporary reductions in the import duties on limited quantities of two categories of worsted wool fabrics PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 56657 suitable for use in making suits, suittype jackets, or trousers: (1) For worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters greater than 18.5 microns (Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) heading 9902.51.11); and (2) for worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less (HTS heading 9902.51.12). On August 6, 2002, President Bush signed into law the Trade Act of 2002, which includes several amendments to Title V of the Act. On December 3, 2004, the Act was further amended pursuant to the Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004, Public Law 108–429, by increasing the TRQ for worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters greater than 18.5 microns, HTS 9902.51.11, to an annual total level of 5.5 million square meters, and extending it through 2007, and increasing the TRQ for average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less, HTS 9902.51.15 (previously 9902.51.12), to an annual total level of 5 million square meters and extending it through 2006. On August 17, 2006 the Act was further amended pursuant to the Pension Protection Act of 2006, Public Law 109– 280, which extended both TRQs, 9902.51.11 and 9902.51.15, through 2009. The Senate-passed Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 extended the TRQ for both HTS numbers through 2014. The Act requires that the TRQs be allocated to persons who cut and sew men’s and boys’ worsted wool suits, suit-type jackets and trousers in the United States. On October 24, 2005, the Department adopted final regulations establishing procedures for allocating the TRQ. See 70 FR 61363; 19 CFR 335. In order to be eligible for an allocation, an applicant must submit an application on the form provided at http:// otexa.ita.doc.gov/wooltrq/wool_app.htm to the address listed above by 5 p.m. on October 15, 2013 in compliance with the requirements of 15 CFR 335.
