Download as PDF 44008 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 145 / Tuesday, July 29, 2014 / Notices indisputably affiliated, as shown by the JBF Group Web site.17 Domestic Producers further argue that it is ‘‘clear that JBF Bahrain is merely taking PET resins produced by its affiliates and performing the same operations using these resins that the affiliate was doing in the UAE.’’ 18 rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES (3) Increase of Subject Imports From UAE to Bahrain After Investigation Initiation While unable to access comprehensive import data of the PET Film inputs, bright and silica resin chips, into Bahrain for the period between initiation of the investigation until the present, Domestic Producers believe there were no such imports entered previously, as there were no production facilities producing PET film in Bahrain at this time.19 Domestic Producers presented evidence of shipments of silica resin chips from JBF India to JBF Bahrain which coincide with the start-up of the JBF Bahrain PET Film plant, and that JBF Bahrain is sourcing PET resin from JBF RAK.20 Analysis of the Request Based on our analysis of Petitioner’s anti-circumvention inquiry request, the Department determines that Domestic Producers satisfied the criteria under section 781(b)(1) of the Act to warrant an initiation of an anti-circumvention inquiry. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(e), the Department finds that the issue of whether a product is included within the scope of an order cannot be determined based solely upon the application and the descriptions of the merchandise. Accordingly, the Department will notify by mail all parties on the Department’s scope service list of the initiation of an anticircumvention inquiry. In addition, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(f)(1)(i) and (ii), a notice of the initiation of an anti-circumvention inquiry issued under 19 CFR 351.225(e) includes a description of the product that is the subject of the anti-circumvention inquiry, PET Film that contains the characteristics as provided in the scope of the Order, and an explanation of the reasons for the Department’s decision to initiate an anti-circumvention inquiry, as provided below. With regard to whether the merchandise from the Bahrain is of the same class or kind as the merchandise produced in the UAE, Domestic Producers presented information to the 17 Id., at 13 and Exhibit 2. 18 Id., at 13. 19 Id., at 14, Exhibit 3. 20 Id., at 14, Exhibit 4. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:02 Jul 28, 2014 Department indicating that, pursuant to section 781(b)(1)(A) of the Act, the merchandise being produced in and/or exported from Bahrain by JBF Bahrain may be of the same class or kind as PET Film produced in the UAE, which is subject to the Order.21 Consequently, the Department finds that Domestic Producers provided sufficient information in its request regarding the class or kind of merchandise to support the initiation of an anti-circumvention inquiry. With regard to completion or assembly of merchandise in a foreign country, pursuant to section 781(b)(1)(B) of the Act, Domestic Producers also presented information to the Department indicating that the PET Film exported from Bahrain to the United States are produced by JBF Bahrain in Bahrain using key components from the UAE that account for a significant portion of the total costs related to the production of PET Film. We find that the information presented by Domestic Producers regarding this criterion supports its request to initiate an anti-circumvention inquiry. The Department finds that Domestic Producers sufficiently addressed the factors described in section 781(b)(1)(C) and 781(b)(2) of the Act regarding whether the assembly or completion of PET Film in Bahrain is minor or insignificant. In particular, Domestic Producers’ submission asserts that: (1) The level of investment is minimal when compared with the volume of film that can be produced; (2) there is no evidence of research and development taking place in Bahrain; (3) the production processes undertaken by JBF Bahrain involve the simple processing of resins in countries subject to the Order; (4) the investment in JBF Bahrain’s processing operations is not significant in the context of production capacity; and (5) the value of the processing performed in Bahrain is minimal, as the production of PET resin outside Bahrain accounts for over 70 percent of the value of finished PET Film.22 With respect to the value of the merchandise produced in the UAE, pursuant to section 781(b)(1)(D) of the Act, Domestic Producers relied on published sources, a simulated cost structure for producing PET Film in Bahrain, and arguments in the ‘‘minor or insignificant process’’ portion of its anti-circumvention request to indicate that the value of the key components produced in the UAE may be significant relative to the total value of the PET 21 Id., 22 See Jkt 232001 PO 00000 at 5 and Exhibit 10. discussion of these five factors above. Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Film exported to the United States.23 We find that this information adequately meets the requirements of this factor, as discussed above, for the purposes of initiating an anticircumvention inquiry. Finally, with respect to the additional factors listed under section 781(b)(3) of the Act, we find that Domestic Producers presented evidence indicating that imports of PET Film from Bahrain to the U.S. increased since the imposition of the Order and that imports of bright resin chips from the UAE to Bahrain also increased since the Order took effect, further supporting initiation of this anti-circumvention inquiry.24 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(l)(2), if the Department issues a preliminary affirmative determination, we will then instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation and require a cash deposit of estimated duties on the merchandise. The Department will establish a schedule for questionnaires and comments on the issues. In accordance with section 781(f) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.225(f)(5), the Department intends to issue its final determination within 300 days of the date of publication of this initiation. This notice is published in accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(f). Dated: July 18, 2014. Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.

Final Determination of No Shipments For these final results of review, we continue to find that Shunhe had no shipments during the POR.4 Consistent with the Department’s refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) cases regarding no shipment claims, we are completing the administrative review with respect to Shunhe and will issue appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) based on the final results of the administrative review.5 3 See Memorandum to Paul Piquado, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Hand Trucks and Certain Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China’’ (July 22, 2014) (Issues and Decision Memorandum), dated concurrent with and adopted by this notice, for a complete description of the Scope of the Order. 4 See id. 5 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44009 Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain revisions to the margin calculations for New-Tec. Specifically, the Department used financial statements of Jenbunjerd Co. Ltd. and Office Thai Online Co. Ltd. for 2012; valued a factor of production that had been omitted during the Preliminary Results; changed the Thai Harmonized Tariff Schedule heading for the surrogate value of labels; and we adjusted the calculation of the surrogate value for inland freight, and brokerage and handling.6 Separate Rates Determination In our Preliminary Results, we determined that New-Tec met the criteria for separate rate status. We have not received any information since issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this preliminary determination. Therefore, the Department continues to find that New-Tec meets the criteria for a separate rate.

Where either a respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.8 In 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases.9 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate.10 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) for subject merchandise exported by New-Tec, which has a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review, except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required; (2) for any previously reviewed or investigated PRC and non-PRC exporter not listed above that received a separate rate in a previous segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporterspecific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 7 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 8 See id. 9 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 10 See id.

These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during the 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. Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a 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), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/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.

Background

    On January 23, 2014, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the Preliminary Results of the 2011-2012 administrative review 
of the antidumping duty order on hand trucks from the PRC. In 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii), we invited parties to comment 
on our Preliminary Results. On February 12, 2014, Gleason Industrial 
Products, Inc., and Precision Products, Inc. (collectively, 
petitioners) and Cosco Home and Office Products (Cosco) submitted

submitted case briefs. On March 3, 2014 and March 4, 2014, petitioners 
and Cosco submitted rebuttal briefs, respectively.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order consists of hand trucks 
manufactured from any material, whether assembled or unassembled, 
complete or incomplete, suitable for any use, and certain parts 
thereof, namely the vertical frame, the handling area and the 
projecting edges or toe plate, and any combination thereof. They are 
typically imported under heading 8716.80.50.10 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), although they may also be 
imported under heading 8716.80.50.90 and 8716.90.50.60. Although the

Final Determination of No Shipments

    For these final results of review, we continue to find that Shunhe 
had no shipments during the POR.\4\ Consistent with the Department's 
refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) cases 
regarding no shipment claims, we are completing the administrative 
review with respect to Shunhe and will issue appropriate instructions 
to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) based on the final results 
of the administrative review.\5\

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain 
revisions to the margin calculations for New-Tec. Specifically, the 
Department used financial statements of Jenbunjerd Co. Ltd. and Office 
Thai Online Co. Ltd. for 2012; valued a factor of production that had 
been omitted during the Preliminary Results; changed the Thai 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule heading for the surrogate value of labels; 
and we adjusted the calculation of the surrogate value for inland 
freight, and brokerage and handling.\6\

the File, ``Analysis for the Final Results of Hand Trucks and 
Certain Parts Thereof from the People's Republic of China: New-Tec'' 
(July 22, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates Determination

    In our Preliminary Results, we determined that New-Tec met the 
criteria for separate rate status. We have not received any information 
since issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for 
reconsidering this preliminary determination. Therefore, the Department 
continues to find that New-Tec meets the criteria for a separate rate.

Final Results of the Review

    The Department determines that the following final dumping margin 
exists for the period December 1, 2011, through November 30, 2012:

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

Assessment Rate

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department determines, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of 
subject merchandise and deposits of estimated duties, where applicable, 
in accordance with the final results of this review. The Department 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of the final results of this review.
    For each individually examined respondent in this review whose 
weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.05 
percent) in

[[Page 44010]]

the final results of this review the Department will calculate 
importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to 
the total entered value of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\7\ Where an importer-(or customer-specific per-unit rate 
is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect 
the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation. Where either a 
respondent's weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.\8\

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

    In 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment 
practice in NME cases.\9\ Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for 
entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by 
companies individually examined during this review, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In 
addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate.\10\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) for subject merchandise exported 
by New-Tec, which has a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that established in the final results of this review, except, if the 
rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required; 
(2) for any previously reviewed or investigated PRC and non-PRC 
exporter not listed above that received a separate rate in a previous 
segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters that 
have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit 
rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 383.60 percent); and 
(4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied the non-PRC exporter. 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during the 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.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a 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), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/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.

Disclosure

    The Department will disclose the calculations performed within five 
days of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this 
proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). We are issuing and 
publishing this administrative review and notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 22, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
