These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES This notice serves as a final 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 review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 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(a)(3). 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 sanctionable violation. These final results of review are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act. 12 We note that, pursuant to a section 129 determination, the Department announced it would instruct CBP ‘‘to discontinue the collection of cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties for AT&M.’’ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People’s Republic of China and Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Implementation of Determinations Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and Partial Revocation of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 78 FR 18958 (March 28, 2013). However, because of an injunction issued by the U.S. Court of International Trade in CIT Ct. No. 09–00511, the Department also explained that ‘‘future entries of such merchandise are subject to suspension of liquidation at the cash deposit rate of zero. Subsequent action will be consistent with the final court decision.’’ Id. at 18960, n.20. Thus, while the Department continues to be enjoined from ordering the lifting of suspension of liquidation regarding incoming entries, future entries of such merchandise will continue to be subject to suspension of liquidation at the cash deposit rate of zero and we will instruct CBP accordingly.

Extension of Initiation of Investigations The Petitions On June 3, 2014, the Department of Commerce (Department) received antidumping and countervailing duty petitions filed by the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, AFL–CIO–CLC (Petitioner) on behalf of the domestic industry producing certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires.1 Determination of Industry Support for the Petitions Sections 702(b)(1) and 732(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), require that a petition be filed by or on behalf of the domestic industry. Sections 702(c)(4)(A) and 732(c)(4)(A) of the Act provide that the Department’s industry support determination be based on whether a minimum percentage of the relevant industry supports the petition. A petition meets this requirement if the domestic producers or workers who support the petition account for: (i) At least 25 percent of the total production of the domestic like product; and (ii) more than 50 percent of the production of the domestic like product produced by that portion of the industry expressing support for, or opposition to, the petition. Moreover, sections 702(c)(4)(D) and 732(c)(4)(D) of the Act provide that, if the petition does not establish support of domestic producers or workers accounting for more than 50 percent of the total production of the domestic like product, the Department shall: (i) Poll the industry or rely on other information in order to determine if there is support for the petition, as required by subparagraph (A), or (ii) if there is a large number of producers, determine industry support using a statistically valid sampling method to poll the industry. Extension of Time Sections 702(c)(1)(A)(ii) and 732(c)(1)(A)(ii) of the Act provide that within 20 days of the filing of an antidumping or countervailing duty petition, the Department will determine, inter alia, whether the petition has been filed by or on behalf of the U.S. industry producing the domestic like product. Sections 702(c)(1)(B) and 732(c)(1)(B) of 1 See Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping Duties and Countervailing Duties on Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the People’s Republic of China, June 3, 2014 (Petitions).

The Department will need additional time to gather and analyze additional information regarding industry support.

Scope of the Order BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P VerDate Mar<15>2010 Department preliminarily determined that Navneet Education Limited (Navneet Education) is the successor-ininterest to Navneet Publications (India) Ltd. (Navneet Publications). No parties submitted comments, and for these final results we continue to find that Navneet Education is the successor-in-interest to Navneet Publications.

The merchandise covered by the CLPP Order 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).

Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description remains dispositive.5 Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review Because no parties submitted comments opposing the Department’s Preliminary Results, and because there is no other information or evidence on the record that calls into question the Preliminary Results, the Department determines that Navneet Education is the successor-in-interest to Navneet Publications for the purpose of determining antidumping duty liability. Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection As a result of this determination, we find that Navneet Education should receive the cash deposit rate previously assigned to Navneet Publications in the most recently completed review of the antidumping duty order on certain lined paper products from India. Consequently, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect estimated antidumping duties for all shipments of subject merchandise exported by Navneet Education and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the Federal Register at the current cash deposit rate for Navneet Publications, which is de minimis.6 This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until further notice.

The Petitions

antidumping and countervailing duty petitions filed by the United

Countervailing Duties on Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck 
Tires from the People's Republic of China, June 3, 2014 (Petitions).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Determination of Industry Support for the Petitions

    Sections 702(b)(1) and 732(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), require that a petition be filed by or on behalf of 
the domestic industry. Sections 702(c)(4)(A) and 732(c)(4)(A) of the 
Act provide that the Department's industry support determination be 
based on whether a minimum percentage of the relevant industry supports 
the petition. A petition meets this requirement if the domestic 
producers or workers who support the petition account for: (i) At least 
25 percent of the total production of the domestic like product; and 
(ii) more than 50 percent of the production of the domestic like 
product produced by that portion of the industry expressing support 
for, or opposition to, the petition. Moreover, sections 702(c)(4)(D) 
and 732(c)(4)(D) of the Act provide that, if the petition does not 
establish support of domestic producers or workers accounting for more 
than 50 percent of the total production of the domestic like product, 
the Department shall: (i) Poll the industry or rely on other 
information in order to determine if there is support for the petition, 
as required by subparagraph (A), or (ii) if there is a large number of 
producers, determine industry support using a statistically valid 
sampling method to poll the industry.

Extension of Time

    Sections 702(c)(1)(A)(ii) and 732(c)(1)(A)(ii) of the Act provide 
that within 20 days of the filing of an antidumping or countervailing 
duty petition, the Department will determine, inter alia, whether the 
petition has been filed by or on behalf of the U.S. industry producing 
the domestic like product. Sections 702(c)(1)(B) and 732(c)(1)(B) of

[[Page 35726]]

the Act provide that the deadline for the initiation determination, in 
exceptional circumstances, may be extended by 20 days in any case in 
which the Department must ``poll or otherwise determine support for the 
petition by the industry.'' Because it is not clear from the Petitions 
whether the industry support criteria have been met, the Department 
determines it should extend the time for initiating an investigation in 
order to further examine the issue of industry support.
    The Department will need additional time to gather and analyze 
additional information regarding industry support. Therefore, it is 
necessary to extend the deadline for determining the adequacy of the 
Petitions for a period not to exceed 40 days from the filing of the 
Petition. Because the extended initiation determinations date of July 
13, 2014, falls on a Sunday, a non-business day, the Department's 
initiation determinations will now be due no later than July 14, 2014, 
the next business day.\2\
