Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet and Strip From India and Taiwan: Preliminary Results of the Second Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 67113-67115 [2013-26851]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 217 / Friday, November 8, 2013 / Notices The Department will issue the final results of this NSR, 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)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 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 this NSR, the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.8 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this NSR. In this review, we calculated a perunit rate for each importer by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct 6 See, e.g., Glycine from the People’s Republic of China: 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). 8 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:08 Nov 07, 2013 Jkt 232001 CBP to assess the resulting per-unit rate against the entered quantity of the subject merchandise. If the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rate 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). Then, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this NSR. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage 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 final results of this NSR shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this administrative 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 NSR 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 section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For merchandise produced by Jinxiang Zhongtian Business Co., Ltd. and exported by Goodman, 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 nonPRC 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 PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67113 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 351.214, and 351.221(b)(4). Dated: November 4, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES The antidumping duty orders on PET Film from India and Taiwan were published on July 1, 2002.1 On April 2, 2013, the Department initiated the second sunset review of these orders pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’).2 The Department received a notice of intent to participate from DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc., and SKC, Inc. (collectively, ‘‘the domestic interested parties’’), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc., and SKC, Inc. are manufacturers of a domestic like product in the United States and, accordingly, are domestic interested parties pursuant to section 771(9)(C) of the Act. On May 2, 2013, the Department received an adequate substantive response to the notice of initiation from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department received no response from the respondent interested parties, i.e., PET Film producers and exporters from India and/or Taiwan. On the basis of the notice of intent to participate and adequate substantive response filed by the domestic interested parties and the inadequate response from any respondent interested party, the Department decided to conduct expedited sunset reviews of these orders pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the 1 See Notice of Amended Final Antidumping Duty Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip from India, 67 FR 44175 (July 1, 2002); see also Notice of Amended Final Antidumping Duty Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip (PET Film) from Taiwan, 67 FR 44174 (July 1, 2002). 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 78 FR 19647 (April 2, 2013).

However, on July 22, 2013, the Department revised its original adequacy determination and determined to conduct full sunset reviews of these orders.3 The Department also extended the deadline for issuing the preliminary results of these full sunset reviews by 90 days, to October 18, 2013.4 The reviews were converted to full sunset reviews to provide interested parties with an opportunity to comment concerning the implementation of the Final Modification for Reviews, and the deadline was extended for the preliminary results of these reviews because these reviews are extraordinarily complicated.5 On October 18, 2013, the Department issued a tolling memorandum extending all deadlines by 16 days for the duration of the government shutdown.6 The deadline for these reviews is now November 4, 2013. Scope of the Orders The products covered by these orders are all gauges of raw, pretreated or primed PET film, whether extruded or coextruded. Excluded are metallized films and other finished films that have had at least one of their surfaces modified by the application of a performance-enhancing resinous or inorganic layer of more than 0.00001 inches thick. Imports of PET film were classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) under item number 3920.62.00. Effective July 1, 2003, the HTSUS subheading 3920.62.00.00 was divided into 3920.62.00.10 (metallized PET film) and 3920.62.00.90 (nonmetallized PET film).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The antidumping duty orders on PET Film from India and Taiwan were 
published on July 1, 2002.\1\ On April 2, 2013, the Department 
initiated the second sunset review of these orders pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'').\2\ The 
Department received a notice of intent to participate from DuPont 
Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc., and SKC, Inc. 
(collectively, ``the domestic interested parties''), within the 
deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). DuPont Teijin Films, 
Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc., and SKC, Inc. are manufacturers of a 
domestic like product in the United States and, accordingly, are 
domestic interested parties pursuant to section 771(9)(C) of the Act.

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

    On May 2, 2013, the Department received an adequate substantive 
response to the notice of initiation from the domestic interested 
parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department received no response from the 
respondent interested parties, i.e., PET Film producers and exporters 
from India and/or Taiwan. On the basis of the notice of intent to 
participate and adequate substantive response filed by the domestic 
interested parties and the inadequate response from any respondent 
interested party, the Department decided to conduct expedited sunset 
reviews of these orders pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C). However, on July 22, 2013, the Department 
revised its original adequacy determination and determined to conduct 
full sunset reviews of these orders.\3\ The Department also extended 
the deadline for issuing the preliminary results of these full sunset 
reviews by 90 days, to October 18, 2013.\4\ The reviews were converted 
to full sunset reviews to provide interested parties with an 
opportunity to comment concerning the implementation of the Final 
Modification for Reviews, and the deadline was extended for the 
preliminary results of these reviews because these reviews are 
extraordinarily complicated.\5\ On October 18, 2013, the Department 
issued a tolling memorandum extending all deadlines by 16 days for the 
duration of the government shutdown.\6\ The deadline for these reviews 
is now November 4, 2013.

Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by these orders are all gauges of raw, 
pretreated or primed PET film, whether extruded or coextruded. Excluded 
are metallized films and other finished films that have had at least 
one of their surfaces modified by the application of a performance-
enhancing resinous or inorganic layer of more than 0.00001 inches 
thick. Imports of PET film were classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') under item number 3920.62.00. 
Effective July 1, 2003, the HTSUS subheading 3920.62.00.00 was divided 
into 3920.62.00.10 (metallized PET film) and 3920.62.00.90 (non-
metallized PET film). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
the convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
scope of these orders is dispositive. Since these orders were 
published, there was one scope determination for PET film from India, 
dated August 25, 2003. In this determination, requested by 
International Packaging Films Inc., the Department determined that 
tracing and drafting film is outside of the scope of the order on PET 
film from India.\7\

    All issues raised for the preliminary results of these reviews are 
addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum (``Decision 
Memorandum'') from Edward Yang, Director, Office VII, Office of AD/CVD 
Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance, dated concurrently with this notice. The issues discussed 
in the Decision Memorandum are the likelihood of continuation or 
recurrence of dumping, and the magnitude of the margins of dumping 
likely to prevail if these orders were revoked. The analysis addresses 
the impact of the Final Modification for Reviews on these reviews. 
Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this 
review and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum 
which is on file electronically via Import Administration's Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA

Preliminary Results of Review

    Pursuant to sections 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act, we preliminarily 
determine that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on PET Film 
from India and Taiwan would be likely to lead to continuation or 
recurrence of dumping. Further, we determine that the magnitude of the 
margins of dumping likely to prevail are as follows:
