Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 68411-68412 [2013-27312]

Download as PDF 68411 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 220 / Thursday, November 14, 2013 / Notices has for processors and end-users, GIPSA worked with the USADPLC to establish an additional minimum color requirement for the U.S. No. 2 Smooth Yellow Dry Pea classification only; and a clear definition to describe the color ‘‘fair color yellow pea’’. Also, GIPSA worked with USADPLC to create a visual reference image that will aid in the consistent application of a fair color. The proposed definition for fair color yellow peas is: ‘‘Dry yellow peas that in mass are lightly to moderately discolored as a result of storage or any other cause to the extent they cannot be considered of good color.’’ The addition of ‘‘fair color yellow peas’’ as a minimum color requirement for U.S. No. 2 ‘‘Smooth Yellow Dry Pea’’ classification only; the definition of ‘‘fair color yellow peas’’; and the establishment of the visual aid for the color to the U.S. Standards for Whole Dry Peas will result in a more uniform and consistent application of the standards. ‘‘Good color peas’’ will continue to serve as a minimum color requirement for all classes of U.S. No. 1 Whole Dry Peas and ‘‘Good color peas’’ will continue to serve as a minimum color requirement for all classes of U.S. No. 2 Whole Dry Peas with the exception of Smooth Yellow Dry Peas. Samples meeting the minimum color requirement ‘‘poor color peas’’ will receive no better than a U.S. No. 3 grade designation for all classes of Whole Dry Peas. Proposed GIPSA Action GIPSA is proposing to establish an additional color grading factor requirement for the Whole Dry Peas class ‘‘Smooth Yellow Dry Peas’’ and establish a definition for ‘‘fair color yellow peas.’’ The proposed addition to the grade standards will enable the class of Smooth Yellow Dry Peas to be marketed on the basis of acceptable appearances. The proposed definition for fair color yellow peas is as follows: ‘‘Dry yellow peas that in mass are lightly to moderately discolored as a result of storage or any other cause to the extent they cannot be considered of good color.’’ GRADES, GRADE REQUIREMENTS, AND GRADE DESIGNATIONS [406 Grades and grade requirements for dockage-free dry peas.

Initiation of New Shipper Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1), the Department finds that the requests from Hubei Nature 
and Hubei Zhenghe meet the threshold requirements for initiation of new 
shipper reviews for shipments of crawfish from the PRC produced and 
exported by Hubei Nature and produced and exported by Hubei 
Zhenghe.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See the memoranda to the file entitled ``Freshwater 
Crawfish Tail Meat from the People's Republic of China: Initiation 
Checklist for Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review of Hubei Nature 
Agriculture Industry Co., Ltd.'' and ``Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat 
from the People's Republic of China: Initiation Checklist for 
Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review of Hubei Zhenghe Food Co., 
Ltd.'' dated concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department intends to issue the preliminary results of these 
reviews no later than 180 days from the date of initiation and final 
results of these reviews no later than 90 days after the date the 
preliminary results are issued.\11\ It is the Department's usual 
practice, in cases involving non-market economy countries, to require 
that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty 
rate separate from the country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure 
and de facto absence of government control over the company's export 
activities. Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to Hubei Nature 
and Hubei Zhenghe which will include a section requesting information 
concerning their eligibility for a separate rate. The new shipper 
review of Hubei Nature will be rescinded if the Department determines 
that Hubei Nature has not demonstrated that it is eligible for a 
separate rate. Likewise, the new shipper review of Hubei Zhenghe will 
be rescinded if the Department determines that Hubei Zhenghe has not 
demonstrated that it is eligible for a separate rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to allow, at 
the option of the importer, the posting, until the completion of the 
review, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry 
of the subject merchandise from Hubei Nature and Hubei Zhenghe in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(e). Because each company certified that it produced and 
exported subject merchandise, the sale of which is the basis for the 
requests for new shipper reviews, we will apply the bonding privilege 
to Hubei Nature and Hubei Zhenghe only for subject merchandise which 
were produced and exported by Hubei Nature and produced and exported by 
Hubei Zhenghe.
    To assist in its analysis of the bona fides of these two companies' 
sales, upon initiation of this new shipper review, the Department will 
require them to submit on an ongoing basis complete transaction 
information concerning any sales of subject merchandise to the United 
States that were made subsequent to the POR.
    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
these new shipper reviews should submit applications for disclosure 
under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 
and 351.306. This initiation and notice are published in accordance 
with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 
351.221(c)(1)(i).
