Certain Kitchen Appliance Shelving and Racks from the People's Republic of China: Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012-2013, 78815-78816 [2013-31116]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 249 / Friday, December 27, 2013 / Notices combined the notice of initiation and the notice of preliminary results. In this changed circumstances review, pursuant to section 751(b) of the Act, the Department conducted a successorin-interest analysis. In making a successor-in-interest determination, the Department examines several factors, including, but not limited to, changes in the following: (1) Management; (2) production facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and (4) customer base.7 While no single factor or combination of factors will necessarily provide a dispositive indication of a successor-ininterest relationship, generally, the Department will consider the new company to be the successor to the previous company if the new company’s resulting operation is not materially dissimilar to that of its predecessor.8 Thus, if the record evidence 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.9 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.216, we preliminarily determine that Zhongce is the successor-in-interest to Hangzhou. Record evidence, as submitted by Zhongce, indicates that the only change undergone was that of the name, from ‘‘Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co., Ltd.’’ to ‘‘Zhongce Rubber Group Company Limited.’’10 Specifically, Zhongce provided a board of directors resolution authorizing the change of company name and specifying that the registered capital and business scope of the company were to remain the same;11 a notarized notice of change in registration, affixed with the sign and seal of the Hangzhou Municipal Administration for Industry and Commerce, showing the change of names;12 and a copy of its new business license showing Zhongce’s new name.13 In summary, Zhongce presented evidence to support its claim of successorship and the change in name did not impact any of the criteria that the Department typically looks to when making a changed circumstances determination. We find that the evidence provided by Zhongce is sufficient to preliminarily determine that the change of its corporate name from Hangzhou to Zhongce did not affect the company’s operations in a meaningful way. Therefore, based on the aforementioned reasons, we preliminarily determine that Zhongce is the successor-in-interest to Hangzhou and, thus, should receive the same antidumping duty treatment with respect to OTR tires from the PRC as the former Hangzhou. Public Comment Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of publication of this notice. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii), interested parties may submit case briefs not later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice. Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed no later than five days after the case briefs, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(d). Consistent with 19 CFR 351.216(e), we will issue the final results of this changed circumstances review no later than 270 days after the date on which this review was initiated, or within 45 days if all parties agree to our preliminary finding. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(b), 351.221(b) and 351.221(c)(3). Dated: December 20, 2013. Ronald K.

of notice of initiation of the requested review, which in this case is 
February 6, 2014. On December 4, 2013, Electrolux timely withdrew its 
request for review within the 90-day time limit. Because no other party

certain kitchen appliance shelving and racks from the PRC covering the 
period September 1, 2012, through August 31, 2013.

Assessment

(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of

POR at rates equal to the cash deposit rate of estimated antidumping 
duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for 
consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(l)(i). The Department 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that

assessment of double antidumping duties.

administrative protective order (``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.

751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
