FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Aneta Erdie, Service Sector Statistics Division, at (301) 763–4841 or by email at <aneta.erdie@census.gov.> SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Sections 182, 224, and 225 of Title 13 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) authorize the Census Bureau to take surveys that are necessary to produce current data on the subjects covered by the major censuses. As part of this authorization, the Census Bureau conducts the ARTS to provide continuing and timely national statistical data on retail trade, and accommodation and food services activity for the period between economic censuses. ARTS is a continuation of similar retail trade surveys conducted each year since 1951 (except 1954). ARTS covers employer firms with establishments located in the United States and classified in the Retail Trade and/or Accommodation and Food Services sectors as defined by the 2007 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). ARTS provides, on a comparable classification basis, annual sales, annual e-commerce sales, yearend inventories held inside and outside the United States, total operating expenses, purchases, accounts receivables, and, for selected industries, merchandise line sales for 2013. The Census Bureau has determined that the conduct of this survey is necessary because these data are not available publicly on a timely basis from any other sources. Firms are selected for the ARTS survey using a stratified random sample based on industry groupings and annual sales size. We will provide report forms to the firms covered by this survey in February 2014, and will require their responses within 50 days after receipt. Firms’ responses to the ARTS survey are required by law (Title 13 U.S.C. Sections 182, 224, and 225). The sample of firms selected will provide, with measurable reliability, statistics on annual sales, annual e-commerce sales, year-end inventories held inside and outside the United States, total operating expenses, purchases, accounts receivables, and, for selected industries, merchandise line sales for 2013. The data collected in this survey will be similar to that collected in the past and within the general scope and nature of those inquiries covered in the economic census. These data are collected to provide a sound statistical ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 basis for the formation of policy by various government agencies. Results will be available for use for a variety of public and business needs including economic and market analysis, company performance, and forecasting future demand. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) unless that collection of information displays a current valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. In accordance with the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, OMB has approved the Annual Retail Trade Survey under OMB Control Number 0607–0013. Based upon the foregoing, I have directed that an annual survey be conducted for the purpose of collecting these data. Dated: October 23, 2013. John H. Thompson, Director, Bureau of the Census.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) has received information sufficient to warrant initiation of a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires (‘‘OTR tires’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). Specifically, based upon a request filed by Shandong Linglong Tyre Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shandong Linglong’’), an exporter to the United States of subject merchandise, the Department is initiating a changed circumstances review to determine whether Shandong Linglong is the successor-in-interest to Zhaoyuan Leo Rubber Co., Ltd. (‘‘Leo Rubber’’), a separate-rate respondent in the original investigation. DATES: Effective: October 30, 2013.

In its submission, Shandong Linglong provided a board of directors resolution authorizing the change of company name; a notice from the Yantai City Administration for Industry and Commerce approving the name change from Leo Rubber to Shandong Linglong; business licenses for Leo Rubber and Shandong Linglong, before and after the name change, respectively; legal structure charts and company management before and after the name change; and a list of suppliers before and after the name change.3 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this Order includes new pneumatic tires designed for off-the-road and offhighway use, subject to certain exceptions.4 The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings: 4011.20.10.25, 4011.20.10.35, 4011.20.50.30, 4011.20.50.50, 4011.61.00.00, 4011.62.00.00, 4011.63.00.00, 4011.69.00.00, 4011.92.00.00, 4011.93.40.00, 4011.93.80.00, 4011.94.40.00, and 4011.94.80.00.

See Implementation of Determinations Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act: Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires; Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe; Laminated Woven Sacks; and Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube From the People’s Republic of China, 77 FR 52683 (August 30, 2012).

Initiation of Changed Circumstances Review Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department will conduct a changed circumstances review upon receipt of information concerning, or a request from, an interested party for a review of an antidumping duty order which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the order. In the event that the Department determines that expedited action is warranted, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) permits the Department to combine the notices of initiation and preliminary results. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.216(d), the Department has determined that the information submitted by Shandong Linglong constitutes sufficient evidence to conduct a changed circumstances review. In an antidumping duty changed circumstances review involving a successor-in-interest determination, the Department typically examines several factors including, but not limited to, changes in: (1) Management; (2) production facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and (4) customer base.5 While no single factor or combination of factors will necessarily be dispositive, the Department generally will consider the new company to be the successor to the predecessor if the resulting operations are essentially the same as those of the predecessor company.6 Thus, if the record demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise, the new company operates as the same business entity as the predecessor company, the Department may assign the new company the cash deposit rate of its predecessor.7 Based on the information provided in its submission, Shandong Linglong has provided sufficient evidence to warrant a review to determine if it is the successor-in-interest to Leo Rubber.
