SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has received information sufficient to warrant initiation of a changed circumstances AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:27 Feb 25, 2015 Jkt 235001 review of the antidumping duty order on certain cased pencils (pencils) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC).1 Based upon the request, the Department is initiating a changed circumstances review (CCR) to determine whether pencils exported by Beijing FILA Dixon Stationery Co., Ltd.2 (Beijing Dixon) continue not to be subject to the Order. In response to the request, and pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 19 CFR 351.216, and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3), the Department preliminarily determines that Beijing Dixon, after the changed circumstances, is the successor-ininterest to Beijing Dixon at the time of the Revocation, such that the revocation of the antidumping duty order with respect to Beijing Dixon 3 continues to apply to Beijing Dixon as currently structured. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective: February 26, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sergio Balbontin, AD/CVD Operations, Office I, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–6478. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 28, 1994, the Department published the Order on pencils from the PRC.4 On July 18, 2013, the Department revoked the Order on pencils from the PRC with respect to pencils exported by Beijing Dixon.5 Background On November 27, 2014, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216 and 19 CFR 351.221, Beijing Dixon, and the Dixon Ticonderoga Company (Ticonderoga), Beijing Dixon’s U.S. parent company, requested a CCR because Beijing Dixon’s production of pencils is now performed by Fila Dixon Stationery (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. (Kunshan Dixon), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Beijing Dixon formed after the Revocation.6 Beijing Dixon and 1 See Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Cased Pencils From the People’s Republic of China, 59 FR 66909 (December 28, 1994) (Order). 2 A/k/a Beijing Dixon Ticonderoga Stationery Company, Ltd., and Beijing Dixon Stationery Company. 3 See Certain Cased Pencils From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination To Revoke Order In Part; 2010–2011, 78 FR 42932 (July 18, 2013) (Revocation) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (IDM). 4 See Order. 5 See Revocation and accompanying IDM. 6 See letter from Dixon, ‘‘Request for Changed Circumstances Review pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216 on behalf of Dixon Ticonderoga Company’’ dated PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10457 Dixon Ticonderoga requested that the Department ‘‘confirm that {Kunshan Dixon} is the same entity as (or successor-in-interest to) Beijing Dixon.’’ 7 Beijing Dixon produced and exported pencils at the time of the Revocation. Beijing Dixon has since amended its business license and continues to function as the exporter of pencils, now produced by its subsidiary Kunshan Dixon.8 Based on these events since the Revocation, Ticonderoga and Beijing Dixon contend that Kunshan Dixon is the successor-in-interest to Beijing Dixon; as such, they request that the Department apply its determination to revoke the Order with respect to Beijing Dixon to pencils produced by Kunshan Dixon and exported by Beijing Dixon. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order includes pencils from the PRC. Pencils are currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 9609.1010. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description is dispositive.9 Methodology In making a successor-in-interest determination, the Department typically examines several factors including, but not limited to, changes in: (1) Management; (2) production facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and (4) customer base.10 While no single factor or combination of factors will necessarily be dispositive, the Department generally will consider the new company to be the successor to the predecessor if the resulting operations of the successor are not materially dissimilar to that of its predecessor.11 November 27, 2014 at 4 (CCR Request) and refiled on December 10, 2014. 7 Id. at 2. 8 Id. at 5. 9 For a complete description of the Scope of the Order, please see Memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Cased Pencils From the People’s Republic of China: Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review Requested by the Dixon Ticonderoga Companies,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 10 See, e.g., Certain Activated Carbon From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Initiation of Changed Circumstances Review, 74 FR 19934, 19935 (April 30, 2009). 11 See, e.g., Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain E:\FR\FM\26FEN1.SGM Continued 26FEN1
