Persulfates From the People's Republic of China: Continuation of Antidumping Duty Order, 17506-17507 [2014-06713]

Download as PDF 17506 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 60 / Friday, March 28, 2014 / Notices exports, or sales during the 12-month period immediately preceding the anniversary month. Therefore, because Dezhou Kaihang requested a new shipper review in February, the anniversary month, the Department is initiating this review in March, and the POR is February 1, 2013, through January 31, 2014. In this instance, Dezhou Kaihang’s sale of subject merchandise was made during the POR specified by the Department’s regulations,7 but the subject shipment entered within the 30 days after the end of this POR.8 When the sale of subject merchandise occurs within the POR, but the entry occurs after the 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.9 Additionally, the preamble to the Department’s regulations states that both the entry and the sale should occur during the POR.10 The Department finds that extending the POR to capture this entry would not prevent the completion of the review within the time limits set by the Department’s regulations. Therefore, the Department extended the POR for the new shipper review of Dezhou Kaihang by 28 days, or until February 28, 2014. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Initiation of Review Based upon information on the record, and pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), the Department finds that Dezhou Kaihang’s request meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for initiation of a new shipper review.11 Accordingly, the Department is initiating a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC for subject merchandise produced by Fengyu and exported by Dezhou Kaihang. This review covers the period February 1, 2013, through February 28, 2014.12 Absent a determination that the case is extraordinarily complicated, the Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this review within 7 See Dezhou Kaihang Request at 2 and Attachment 2. 8 See Customs Data File at Attachment 1, Line 10191. 9 See 19 CFR 351.214(f)(2)(ii). 10 See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27319–27320 (May 19, 1997). 11 See Memorandum from John Drury and Ilissa Kabak Shefferman to the File through Richard O. Weible entitled, ‘‘Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review: Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China (A–570–851),’’ dated March 20, 2014. 12 See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A) and discussion above concerning extending the POR. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:57 Mar 27, 2014 Jkt 232001 180 days after the date on which this review is initiated and the final results within 90 days after the date on which the Department issues the preliminary results.13 In cases involving non-market economies, the Department requires 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.14 Accordingly, the Department will issue a questionnaire to Dezhou Kaihang that will include a separate rates section. This review may proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that Dezhou Kaihang is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of preserved mushrooms. However, if Dezhou Kaihang does not demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate, it will be deemed not to have met the requirements of section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B) and, therefore, not separate from the PRC-wide entity. Under such circumstances, consistent with its practice, the Department will rescind the new shipper review.15 Upon initiation, the Department will direct CBP to suspend liquidation of any unliquidated entries of subject merchandise produced by Fengyu and exported by Dezhou Kaihang. The Department 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 each entry of subject merchandise exported by Dezhou Kaihang and produced by Fengyu in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Dezhou Kaihang certified that the sales which form the basis for its request were produced by Fengyu, the Department will instruct CBP to permit the use of a bond only for entries of subject merchandise produced by Fengyu and exported by Dezhou Kaihang. Interested parties requiring access to business proprietary information in this new shipper review should submit 13 See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(h)(i). 14 See, e.g., Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 75 FR 72794, 72796 (November 26, 2010), unchanged in Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 76 FR 9747 (February 22, 2011). 15 See Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 75 FR 62108, 62108 (October 7, 2010).
