The information which the Department examined was consistent with that provided by Kaihua in its request.7 Period of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(c), an exporter or producer may request an NSR within one year of the date on which its subject merchandise was first entered. Moreover, 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1) states that if the request for the review is made during the six-month period ending with the end of the semiannual anniversary month, the Secretary will initiate an NSR in the calendar month immediately following the semiannual anniversary month. Further, 19 CFR 315.214(g)(1)(i)(B) states that if the NSR was initiated in the month immediately following the semiannual anniversary emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES 2 See Kaihua’s request for an NSR dated May 21, 2014 at Exhibit 1. 3 Id. 4 Id. 5 Id. 6 See Kaihua’s request for an NSR at Exhibit 2. 7 See Memo to the File from Milton Koch, International Trade Compliance Analyst, ‘‘New Shipper Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Order on Fresh Garlic from the People’s Republic of China: Customs Entries from November 1, 2014, to April 30, 2014,’’ dated August 1, 2014. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:14 Aug 06, 2014 Jkt 232001 46251 This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i). month, the POR will be the six-month period immediately preceding the semiannual anniversary month. Within one year of the date on which its fresh garlic was first entered, Kaihua made the request for an NSR that included all documents and information required by the statute and regulations. Its request was filed in May, which is the semiannual anniversary month of the order. Therefore, the POR is November 1, 2013, through April 30, 2014.8 Dated: August 1, 2014. Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. Initiation of New Shipper Review DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b), and the information on the record, the Department finds that Kaihua’s request meets the threshold requirements for initiation of an NSR and, therefore, is initiating an NSR of Kaihua. The Department intends to issue the preliminary results within 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.9 It is the Department’s usual practice in cases involving non-market economies to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate (i.e., a separate rate) provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities.10 Accordingly, the Department will issue questionnaires to Kaihua that include a separate rate section. The review will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that the exporter and producer are not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to their exports of fresh garlic. 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 certain entries of the subject merchandise from Kaihua in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Specifically, the bonding privilege will only apply to entries of subject merchandise exported and produced by Kaihua, the sales of which are the basis for this NSR request. Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in this proceeding should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306.
