SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On September 28, 2006, the Department published the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on CLPP from India.1 On October 17, 2013, Navneet Education informed the Department that effective September 30, 2013, the former company, Navneet Publications, changed its name to Navneet Education in accordance with company’s existing board of directors’ resolution and Indian law.2 Navneet Education stated that the name change process began in August 2013 and was finalized by the end of September 2013.3 Navneet Education submitted a copy of ‘‘Fresh Certificate of Incorporation Consequent upon Change of Name’’ approved by ‘‘Government of India—Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Registrar of Companies, Maharashtra, Mumbai,’’ dated October 17, 2013.4 As the company is now known as Navneet Education, it requests that: (1) The Department conduct a changed circumstances review under section 751(b)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216 to determine that it is the successor-ininterest to Navneet Publications for purposes of the antidumping order; and (2) that the Department issue instructions to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that reflect this conclusion.5 1 See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Lined Paper Products from the People’s Republic of China; Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Lined Paper Products from India, Indonesia and the People’s Republic of China; and Notice of Countervailing Duty Orders: Certain Lined Paper Products from India and Indonesia, 71 FR 56949 (September 28, 2006) (CLPP Order). 2 See Certain Lined Paper Products from India: Request for Changed Circumstances Reviews of Navneet Publications (India) Ltd.

PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21897 On January 14, 2014, the Department initiated a changed circumstances review explaining that while there was sufficient evidence to initiate a successor-in-interest review, it was necessary for the Department to issue a questionnaire requesting additional information for review as provided by 19 CFR 351.221(b)(2).6 On January 15, 2014, the Department issued a supplemental questionnaire to Navneet Education, to which Navneet responded on January 29, 2014.7 We received no comments from any other interested party concerning the changed circumstances review request filed by Navneet Education. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the CLPP Order 8 is certain lined paper products, typically school supplies (for purposes of this scope definition, the actual use of or labeling these products as school supplies or non-school supplies is not a defining characteristic) composed of or including paper that incorporates straight horizontal and/or vertical lines on ten or more paper sheets (there shall be no minimum page requirement for looseleaf filler paper).

VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:54 Apr 17, 2014 Jkt 232001 Preliminary Results of the Changed Circumstances Review Based on the evidence reviewed, we preliminarily determine that Navneet Education is the successor-in-interest to Navneet Publications. Specifically, we find that the change of the company name from Navneet Publications to Navneet Education resulted in no significant changes to management, production facilities, supplier relationships, customer relationships, or ownership/legal structure with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise. Thus, we preliminarily determine that Navneet Education operates as the same business entity as Navneet Publications with respect to the subject merchandise. If the Department upholds these preliminary results in the final results, Navneet Education will retain the AD deposit rate currently assigned to Navneet Publications with respect to the subject merchandise (i.e., the 11.01 percent cash deposit rate currently assigned to Navneet Publications). However, because cash deposits are only estimates of the amount of antidumping duties to be assessed, changes in cash deposit rates are not made retroactively.14 Therefore, no retroactive change will be made to Navneet Education’s cash deposit rate, as Navneet Education requested.15 If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this changed circumstances review, we will instruct CBP to suspend liquidation of entries of CLPP made by Navneet Education, effective on the publication date of the final results, at the cash deposit rate assigned to Navneet Publications. Public Comment Interested parties may submit case briefs and/or written comments not later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.16 Rebuttals to written comments may be filed no later than five days after the written comments are filed.17 Parties who submit case or rebuttal briefs are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; 14 See Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India, 77 FR 64953 (October 24, 2012); see also Certain Hot-Rolled Lead and Bismuth Carbon Steel Products From the United Kingdom: Final Results of Changed-Circumstances Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 64 FR 66880 (November 30, 1999). 15 Navneet argued that the determination as successor-in-interest should be made effective as of the date of the name change, i.e., September 30, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 28, 2006, the Department published the antidumping 
duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on CLPP from India.\1\ 
On October 17, 2013, Navneet Education informed the Department that 
effective September 30, 2013, the former company, Navneet Publications, 
changed its name to Navneet Education in accordance with company's 
existing board of directors' resolution and Indian law.\2\ Navneet 
Education stated that the name change process began in August 2013 and 
was finalized by the end of September 2013.\3\ Navneet Education 
submitted a copy of ``Fresh Certificate of Incorporation Consequent 
upon Change of Name'' approved by ``Government of India--Ministry of 
Corporate Affairs, Registrar of Companies, Maharashtra, Mumbai,'' dated 
October 17, 2013.\4\

investigation, and it has been a respondent in several AD 
administrative reviews, most often as a named mandatory respondent 
(e.g., in the second through fourth reviews it received the 
following company-specific margins of 1.34 percent, 0.43 percent,

    As the company is now known as Navneet Education, it requests that: 
(1) The Department conduct a changed circumstances review under section 
751(b)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216 to determine that it is the 
successor-in-interest to Navneet Publications for purposes of the 
antidumping order; and (2) that the Department issue instructions to 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that reflect this conclusion.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ Id., at 1-2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On January 14, 2014, the Department initiated a changed 
circumstances review explaining that while there was sufficient 
evidence to initiate a successor-in-interest review, it was necessary 
for the Department to issue a questionnaire requesting additional 
information for review as provided by 19 CFR 351.221(b)(2).\6\ On 
January 15, 2014, the Department issued a supplemental questionnaire to 
Navneet Education, to which Navneet responded on January 29, 2014.\7\

    We received no comments from any other interested party concerning 
the changed circumstances review request filed by Navneet Education.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the CLPP Order \8\ is certain lined 
paper products, typically school supplies (for purposes of this scope 
definition, the actual use of or labeling these products as school 
supplies or non-school supplies is not a defining characteristic) 
composed of or including paper that incorporates straight horizontal 
and/or vertical lines on ten or more paper sheets (there shall be no 
minimum page requirement for looseleaf filler paper). The products are 
currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 4811.90.9035, 4811.90.9080, 
4820.30.0040, 4810.22.5044, 4811.90.9050, 4811.90.9090, 4820.10.2010,

Certain Lined Paper Products from India'' (Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum), dated concurrently with these results and hereby 
adopted by this notice. See, also, CLPP Order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    In accordance with section 751(b)(1) of the Act, we are conducting 
a changed circumstances review based upon the information contained in 
Navneet Education's submissions.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See CCR Request and Navneet Education Supp QNR Response.

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

[[Page 21898]]

    In making a successor-in-interest determination, the Department 
examines several factors, including but not limited to, changes in: (1) 
Management; (2) production facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and 
(4) customer base.\11\ While no single factor or combination of these 
factors will necessarily provide a dispositive indication of a 
successor-in-interest relationship, the Department will generally 
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.\12\ Thus, if the 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 former company, 
the Department will accord the new company the same antidumping 
treatment as its predecessor.

    The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on 
file electronically via Import Administration's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). 
IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov 
and in the Central Records Unit (CRU), room 7046 of the main Department 
of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the

Preliminary Results of the Changed Circumstances Review

    Based on the evidence reviewed, we preliminarily determine that 
Navneet Education is the successor-in-interest to Navneet Publications. 
Specifically, we find that the change of the company name from Navneet 
Publications to Navneet Education resulted in no significant changes to 
management, production facilities, supplier relationships, customer 
relationships, or ownership/legal structure with respect to the 
production and sale of the subject merchandise. Thus, we preliminarily 
determine that Navneet Education operates as the same business entity 
as Navneet Publications with respect to the subject merchandise.
    If the Department upholds these preliminary results in the final 
results, Navneet Education will retain the AD deposit rate currently 
assigned to Navneet Publications with respect to the subject 
merchandise (i.e., the 11.01 percent cash deposit rate currently 
assigned to Navneet Publications). However, because cash deposits are 
only estimates of the amount of antidumping duties to be assessed, 
changes in cash deposit rates are not made retroactively.\14\ 
Therefore, no retroactive change will be made to Navneet Education's 
cash deposit rate, as Navneet Education requested.\15\ If these 
preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this changed 
circumstances review, we will instruct CBP to suspend liquidation of 
entries of CLPP made by Navneet Education, effective on the publication 
date of the final results, at the cash deposit rate assigned to Navneet 
Publications.
