Download as PDF 59476 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 191 / Thursday, October 2, 2014 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES nuclear reactor outside the United States. Such entries must be accompanied by the certifications of the importer and end user. The merchandise subject to this order is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheading 2844.20.0020. Subject merchandise may also enter under 2844.20.0030, 2844.20.0050, and 2844.40.00. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to this proceeding is dispositive. Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review Based on the Department’s analysis of the information provided by GNF–A with its request for CCR, and in its August 1 and 15, 2014 responses to the Department’s July 11, 2014 questionnaire and July 15, 2014 questionnaire revision, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.216, we preliminarily determine that changed circumstances (earthquakes and other external events) exist which have affected GNF–A’s ability to manage it inventory and comply with the 18-month re-export requirement. As such, it is appropriate for the Department to allow GNF–A to make certain future entries of LEU under the provision for exclusion from the scope of the order and to find that certain past entries by GNF–A of LEU from France satisfy the conditions for exclusion from the order. Because the Department’s full analysis of the details of GNF–A’s request for CCR and the information provided by GNF–A in its questionnaire response requires a discussion of business proprietary information, the full analysis can be found in the proprietary Memorandum for Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, ‘‘Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review: Analysis of GNF–A Business Proprietary Information,’’ available on Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS) (http://iaacess.trade.gov) to parties who have been granted access to business proprietary information under Administrative Protective Order. A public version of this memorandum is also available on IA ACCESS, and it is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit of the main Commerce Building, room 7046. In addition, a complete public version of this memorandum is accessible on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/ frn/index.html. The Department will issue revised certifications and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Oct 01, 2014 Jkt 235001 instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection regarding GNF–A’s compliance with the 18-month re-export requirement. Notification Regarding Revised Entry Requirements The Department recently revised the entry requirements for LEU from France. The Department determined that it is appropriate to suspend liquidation for shipments of LEU from France that may be conditionally excluded from the scope of the AD order. Such entries will be suspended and cash deposits of estimated AD duties will be required, at a rate of zero percent ad valorem.4 Public Comment Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results in accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii). Case briefs from interested parties may be submitted not later than seven days after the date of the announcement of these preliminary results. Rebuttal briefs, limited to the issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed no later than five days after the submission of case briefs.

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.

    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).
