SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) received a request for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order 1 on certain pasta from Turkey.2 In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214, we are initiating an antidumping duty new shipper review of Bessan Makarina Gida San. Ve Tic. ¸ A.S. (Bessan). The period of review ¸ (POR) of this new shipper review is July 1, 2013, through January 31, 2014. DATES: Effective Date: March 10, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tyler Weinhold or Robert James, AD/ CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482–1121 or (202) 482– 0649, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background On July 24, 1996, the Department published the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Turkey.3 Thus, the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from the Turkey has a January semiannual anniversary month. On January 31, 2014, the Department received a timely filed request for a new shipper review from Bessan. In its request for a ¸ review, Bessan identified itself as both ¸ a producer and exporter of the subject merchandise which was exported to the United States. Pursuant to the requirements set forth in section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2), Bessan certified ¸ that (1) it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (POI); and (2) since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any company that exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, including those companies not individually examined during the investigation.4 Additionally, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Bessan submitted ¸ documentation establishing: (1) The date on which it first shipped subject merchandise to the United States; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to a U.S. purchaser for export to the United States.5 We note that although Bessan ¸ submitted documentation regarding the volume of its shipment and the date of their first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States, our customs query shows that Bessan’s ¸ shipment appears to have entered the United States shortly after the semiannual anniversary month. Under 19 CFR 351.214(f)(2)(ii), when the sale of the subject merchandise occurs within the normal POR, but the entry occurs after the normal POR, the POR may be extended unless it would be likely to prevent the completion of the review within the time limits set by the Department’s regulations. The preamble to the Department’s regulations states that both the entry and the sale should occur during the POR, and that under ‘‘appropriate’’ circumstances the Department has the flexibility to extend the POR.6 In this instance, Bessan’s ¸ shipment appears to have entered during the month following the end of the normal POR. The Department does not find that this delay would be likely to prevent the completion of the review within the time limits set by the Department’s regulations. Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Pasta From Turkey, 61 FR 38545 (July 24, 1996) (Order). 2 See Letter from Bessan, ‘‘Request for New ¸ Shipper Review; Antidumping Duty Order Involving Certain Pasta from Turkey,’’ (January 31, 2014) (Bessan’s Request). ¸ 3 See Order. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:00 Mar 07, 2014 Jkt 232001 If the Department subsequently determines, based on information collected, that a new shipper review for Bessan is not warranted, the Department ¸ will either rescind the review or apply facts available pursuant to section 776 of the Act, as appropriate. We intend to issue the preliminary results of this review no later than 180 days after the date on which this review is initiated, and the final results within 90 days after the date on which we issue the preliminary results.8 We will instruct CBP 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 certain entries of the subject merchandise produced and exported by Bessan in accordance with section ¸ 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Bessan certified that ¸ it produces and exports the subject merchandise, the sale of which forms the basis for its new shipper review request, we will instruct CBP to permit the use of a bond only for entries of subject merchandise which Bessan ¸ produced and exported. Interested parties may submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This initiation and this notice are issued and published in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: February 27, 2014.

Assessment Rates If DSM’s weighted-average dumping margin continues to be above de minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate an importerspecific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance 4 See 19 CFR 351.309(d). 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2). 6 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 5 See E:\FR\FM\10MRN1.SGM 10MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 46 / Monday, March 10, 2014 / Notices with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).7 If DSM’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.8 The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by DSM, which is the company selected for individual examination in this review, for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). In the final results of this review, if we continue to find that Daewoo, Dongbu, GS Global, Hyosung, and Hyundai Steel had no reviewable transactions of subject merchandise, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by these companies but exported by other companies at the allothers rate.9 For the companies which were not selected for individual examination, Edgen Murray Corporation, Kyoungil Co., Ltd., Samsung C&T Corp., Samwoo EMC Co., Ltd., and TCC Steel Corp., we will instruct CBP to apply the rates listed above to all entries of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by those firms.

Assessment Rates

    If DSM's weighted-average dumping margin continues to be above de 
minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate an 
importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the 
total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer's 
examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance

[[Page 13277]]

with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\7\ If DSM's weighted-average dumping margin 
is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) not to assess duties on any of 
its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for 
Reviews).
    \8\ See Final Modification for Reviews, 77 FR at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by DSM, which is the company 
selected for individual examination in this review, for which it did 
not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    In the final results of this review, if we continue to find that 
Daewoo, Dongbu, GS Global, Hyosung, and Hyundai Steel had no reviewable 
transactions of subject merchandise, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
any existing entries of merchandise produced by these companies but 
exported by other companies at the all-others rate.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies which were not selected for individual 
examination, Edgen Murray Corporation, Kyoungil Co., Ltd., Samsung C&T 
Corp., Samwoo EMC Co., Ltd., and TCC Steel Corp., we will instruct CBP 
to apply the rates listed above to all entries of subject merchandise 
produced and/or exported by those firms.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of CTL plate from Korea entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as 
provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for 
companies subject to this review will be the rate established in the 
final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise 
exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but 
covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate 
will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
review, a prior review, or the original investigation but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 0.98 percent,\10\ the all-others rate established in the 
less-than-fair-value investigation, adjusted for the export-subsidy 
rate in the companion countervailing duty investigation. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers 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 POR. 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.
    The Department is issuing and publishing these results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 4, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
