Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 191 / Thursday, October 2, 2014 / Notices subject merchandise to the United States.3 Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), BASACO certified that it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’).4 In addition, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), BASACO certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any Vietnamese exporter or producer who exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, including those respondents not individually examined during the investigation.5 As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), BASACO also certified that its export activities were not controlled by the central government of Vietnam.6 In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), BASACO submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which it first shipped subject merchandise for export to the United States; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.7 Finally, the Department conducted a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) database query and confirmed the price, quantity, date of sale, and date of entry of the sale at issue.8 Initiation of New Shipper Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), and based on the evidence provided by BASACO, we find that the request submitted by BASACO meets the requirements for initiation of the NSR for shipments of fish fillets from Vietnam produced and exported by BASACO.9 The POR is August 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014.10 Absent a determination that the case is extraordinarily complicated, the Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this NSR within 3 Id. at 2 and at Exhibit 1. 180 days from the date of initiation and the final results within 270 days from the date of initiation.11 It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economy countries, to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an AD rate separate from the country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to BASACO that will include a section requesting information with regard to BASACO’s export activities for separate rate purposes. The review of BASACO will proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that it is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of fish fillets. We 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 each entry of the subject merchandise from the requesting company in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because BASACO certified that it both produced and exported the subject merchandise, the sale of which is the basis for the NSR request, we will instruct CBP to permit the use of a bond only for subject merchandise which BASACO both produced and exported. Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in this NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 19 CFR 351.306. This initiation and notice are published in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: September 24, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 156 of Title 35, United States Code, generally provides that the term of a patent may be extended for a period of up to five years if the patent claims a product, or a method of making or using a product, that has been subject to certain defined regulatory review, and that the patent may be extended for interim periods of up to one year if the regulatory review is anticipated to extend beyond the expiration date of the patent. On August 29, 2014, the Regents of the University of California timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for a third interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,454,779. The patent claims the medical device, ResQPump® in connection with the ResQPOD® ITD. The application indicates that a Premarket Approval Application, PMA No. P110024, for the medical device has been filed, and is currently undergoing SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 regulatory review before the Food and Drug Administration for permission to market or use the product commercially. Review of the application indicates that, except for permission to market or use the product commercially, the subject patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156, and that the patent should be extended for one year as required by 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5)(B). Because it is apparent that the regulatory review period will continue beyond the extended expiration date of the patent, October 3, 2014, interim extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) is appropriate. An interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,454,779 is granted for a period of one year from the extended expiration date of the patent. Dated: September 24, 2014.

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of 
the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, Norris 
and BTIC timely withdrew their requests by the 90-day deadline, and no 
other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty 
order. As a result, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding 
the administrative review of high pressure steel cylinders from the PRC 
for the period June 1, 2013, through May 31, 2014, in its entirety.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protect 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
Because the Department is rescinding this administrative review in its 
entirety, the entries subject to this administrative review shall be 
assessed antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposit of 
estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or 
withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register, if appropriate.

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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a final 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 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 violation which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR
