One of these programs is the USDA voluntary inspection and grading program for dairy products (7 CFR Part 58) where these dairy products are graded according to U.S. grade standards by a USDA grader. The dairy products under the dairy program may be identified with the USDA grade mark. Dairy processors, buyers, retailers, institutional users, and consumers have requested that such a program be developed to assure the uniform quality of dairy products purchased. In order for any service program to perform satisfactorily, there are regulations for the provider and user. For these reasons, the dairy inspection and grading program regulations were developed and issued under the authority of the Act. These regulations are essential to administer the program to meet the needs of the user and to carry out the purposes of the Act. The information collection requirements in this request are essential to carry out the intent of the AMA to ensure that dairy products are produced under sanitary conditions and buyers are purchasing a quality product. In order for the General Specifications for Dairy Plants Approved for USDA Inspection and Grading Service to serve the government, industry, and the consumer, laboratory test results must be recorded. Respondents are not required to submit information to the agency. The records are to be evaluated by a USDA inspector at the time of an inspection. These records include quality tests of each producer, plant records of required tests and analysis, and starter and cheese make records. As an offsetting benefit, the records required by USDA are also records that are routinely used by the inspected facility for their own supervisory and quality control purposes. Estimate of Burden: Public recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 2.85 hours per response. Respondents: Dairy products manufacturing facilities. Estimated Number of Respondents: 487. Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 487. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 1388. Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments may be sent to Diane D. Lewis, 1400 Independence Avenue SW., Room 2747–South, Washington, DC 20250–0230. All comments received will be available for public inspection during regular business hours at the same address. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: August 20, 2014. Rex A. Barnes, Associate Administrator, Agricultural Marketing Service.

Therefore, the deadline to withdraw review requests, which included 16 days for the tolling of all deadlines by reason of the government shutdown, was December 12, 2013.

export price or export price is calculated in accordance with section 
772 of the Act. Normal Value is calculated in accordance with section

our preliminary results, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum dated 
concurrently with this notice and hereby adopted by this notice. The 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file 
electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). 
IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov, and is available to all parties in the Central

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the 
following weighted-average dumping margins for the period July 1, 2012, 
through June 30, 2013:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                             Weighted- average  dumping

 Castiglioni (collectively the Rummo
 Group).

Valdigrano di Flavio Pagani S.r.L........  8.33.
Pasta Zara S.p.A.........................  8.33.
Pastificio Toscano srl...................  8.33.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
\7\ The margin for the non-selected companies was based on the
  calculated weighted-average margin of the Rummo Group (the sole
  mandatory respondent receiving an above de minimis margin in theses
  preliminary results). For further discussion, see the Preliminary
  Decision Memorandum at 12.

Assessment Rate

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. If the 
weighted-average dumping margin for Tomasello or Rummo is not zero or 
de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will calculate importer-
specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review 
when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final 
results of this review is not zero or de minimis. Where either the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 
an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis 
for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise 
covered by the final results of this review where applicable.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise

[[Page 50616]]

during the POR produced by each respondent for which they did not know 
that their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary 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 antidumping duties occurred and increase the 
subsequent assessment of the antidumping duties by the amount of 
antidumping duties reimbursed.
    These preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: August 18, 2014.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
