Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires From the People's Republic of China: Amended Affirmative Preliminary Determination, 15987-15990 [2015-06955]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 58 / Thursday, March 26, 2015 / Notices environmental reviews for the RMPs that were revised since the 2004 RMPs were submitted to NMFS. For example, on December 10, 2012, NMFS completed a final Environmental Assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for five Elwha salmon and steelhead hatchery programs. Subsequently, on December 15, 2014, a final supplemental EA and FONSI for Elwha hatchery programs was published. In addition, in February, NMFS published a notice of availability for a draft EA for three salmon hatchery programs in the Dungeness River watershed (80 FR 9260, February 20, 2015). Public comments on the draft EIS for Puget Sound hatchery programs noted that the 2004 RMPs for hatchery programs do not accurately reflect current hatchery program purposes or practices, and that some of the information used was outdated. It was also noted that the scale of the review, incorporating more than a hundred hatchery programs, tended to mask effects for some species. Therefore, considering ongoing submissions of revised watershedspecific joint RMPs within the action area of the 2004 RMPs and public comments received on the draft EIS, NMFS has determined it is appropriate to terminate the EIS and transition this effort into new NEPA reviews on revised hatchery RMPs that are jointly submitted to NMFS by the co-managers. NMFS does not plan to formally respond to public comments on the draft EIS; however, information in the terminated draft EIS, along with public comments received on the draft EIS, will be considered by NMFS in subsequent NEPA reviews of watershedspecific RMPs. Authority mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES We provide this notice in accordance with the requirements of NEPA as amended (42 U.S.C. 4371 et seq.) and its implementing regulations (40 CFR 1506.6), and other appropriate Federal laws and regulations, and policies and procedures of NMFS for compliance with those regulations.

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g)(1), the Department is amending the Preliminary Determination to reflect the corrections of a significant ministerial error in Sailun Group’s margin calculation. However, the Department is not amending GITI’s margin calculation because GITI’s ministerial errors are not significant in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(g)(1). As a result of amending Sailun Group’s margin, the Department also revised the margin for separate rate companies.11 Further, the Department has corrected names for GITI, Doublestar and Tyrechamp, and CIC. Ministerial Error Allegations For a complete analysis of the ministerial error allegations, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum.12 Correction In the Federal Register notice for the Preliminary Determination, we incorrectly identified the following exporter-producer combinations: (1) Exporter and producer Giti Radial Tire (Anhui) Company Ltd. was misidentified as ‘‘Giti Tire (Anhui) Company Ltd.’’; (2) two of exporter Crown International Corporation’s producers, Shandong Yongsheng Rubber Group Co., Ltd. and Qingdao Doublestar Tire Industrial Co., Ltd, were incorrectly listed as ‘‘Shandong Yonshong Rubber Group Co.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to request clearance for the collection of data concerning the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC) to be conducted in conjunction with the February, March, and April Current Population Survey (CPS). The Census Bureau has conducted this supplement annually for more than 50 years. The Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics sponsor this supplement. The ASEC data collection underwent a transition period from 2013 to 2015, in which it was redesigned to include a new series of questions relating to (1) income; and (2) health insurance. For 2016, the data collection questions and design will remain unchanged from the previous year. For this data collection, information on work experience, personal income, noncash benefits, current and previous year health insurance coverage, employer-sponsored insurance take-up, and migration is collected. The work experience items in the ASEC provide a unique measure of the dynamic nature of the labor force as viewed over a oneyear period. These items produce statistics that show movements in and out of the labor force by measuring the number of periods of unemployment experienced by people, the number of different employers worked for during the year, the principal reasons for unemployment, and part-/full-time attachment to the labor force. We can make indirect measurements of discouraged workers and others with a casual attachment to the labor market. The income data from the ASEC are used by social planners, economists, government officials, and market PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 researchers to gauge the economic wellbeing of the country as a whole, and selected population groups of interest. Government planners and researchers use these data to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of various assistance programs. Market researchers use these data to identify and isolate potential customers. Social planners use these data to forecast economic conditions and to identify special groups that seem to be especially sensitive to economic fluctuations. Economists use ASEC data to determine the effects of various economic forces, such as inflation, recession, recovery, and so on, and their differential effects on various population groups. A prime statistic of interest is the classification of people in poverty and how this measurement has changed over time for various groups. Researchers evaluate ASEC income data not only to determine poverty levels but also to determine whether government programs are reaching eligible households. The ASEC also contains questions related to: (1) Medical expenditures; (2) presence and cost of a mortgage on property; (3) child support payments; and (4) amount of child care assistance received. These questions enable analysts and policymakers to obtain better estimates of family and household income, and more precisely gauge poverty status. II. Method of Collection The ASEC information will be collected by both personal visit and telephone interviews in conjunction with the regular February, March and April CPS interviewing. All interviews are conducted using computer-assisted interviewing. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0607–0354. Form Number: There are no forms. We conduct all interviewing on computers. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: Annually. Estimated Number of Respondents: 78,000. Estimated Time per Response: 25 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 32,500. Estimated Total Annual Cost: There are no costs to the respondents other than their time to answer the CPS questions. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, section 182; and title 29, United States Code, sections 1–9. E:\FR\FM\26MRN1.SGM 26MRN1

Scope of the Investigation

    For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see 
``Scope of Investigation'' at Appendix I of the Preliminary 
Determination.

Analysis of Significant Ministerial Error Allegations

    The Department will analyze any comments received and, if 
appropriate, correct any significant ministerial error by amending the 
preliminary determination according to 19 CFR 351.224(e). A ministerial 
error is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ``an error in addition, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other 
similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.'' Further, a significant ministerial error is defined in 
19 CFR

[[Page 15988]]

351.224(g) as a ministerial error, the correction of which, singly or 
in combination with other errors, would result in: (1) A change of at 
least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent 
of, the weighted-average dumping margin calculated in the original 
(erroneous) preliminary determination; or (2) a difference between a 
weighted-average dumping margin of zero (or de minimis) and a weighted-
average dumping margin of greater than de minimis, or vice versa.
    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g)(1), the Department is 
amending the Preliminary Determination to reflect the corrections of a 
significant ministerial error in Sailun Group's margin calculation. 
However, the Department is not amending GITI's margin calculation 
because GITI's ministerial errors are not significant in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.224(g)(1). As a result of amending Sailun Group's 
margin, the Department also revised the margin for separate rate 
companies.\11\ Further, the Department has corrected names for GITI, 
Doublestar and Tyrechamp, and CIC.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Memorandum to The File, ``Certain Passenger Vehicle and 
Light Truck Tires from the People's Republic of China: Amended 
Separate Rate Calculation Memorandum,'' dated concurrently with this 
notice, for the calculation performed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ministerial Error Allegations

    For a complete analysis of the ministerial error allegations, see 
the Ministerial Error Memorandum.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, ``Ministerial Error Memorandum for the 
Affirmative Preliminary Determination of the Antidumping Duty 
Investigation of Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires 
From the People's Republic of China,'' dated concurrently with this 
notice, for the analysis performed (Ministerial Error Memorandum). 
This memorandum is on file electronically via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized 
Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to 
registered users at http://access.trade.gov, and is available to all 
parties in the Department's Central Records Unit in Room 7046 of the 
Department of Commerce building.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Correction

    In the Federal Register notice for the Preliminary Determination, 
we incorrectly identified the following exporter-producer combinations: 
(1) Exporter and producer Giti Radial Tire (Anhui) Company Ltd. was 
mis-identified as ``Giti Tire (Anhui) Company Ltd.''; (2) two of 
exporter Crown International Corporation's producers, Shandong 
Yongsheng Rubber Group Co., Ltd. and Qingdao Doublestar Tire Industrial 
Co., Ltd, were incorrectly listed as ``Shandong Yonshong Rubber Group 
Co. Ltd.'' and ``Qingdao Doublestar Tire Industrial Co., Ltd''; and 3) 
exporter Tyrechamp Group Co., Limited and one of its producers, Qingdao 
Doublestar Tire Industrial Co., Ltd., were listed as ``Tyrechamp Group 
Co., Ltd.'' and ``Qingdao Doublestar Tyre Industrial Co., Ltd.'' We are 
correcting these exporter-producer combinations, as listed below, and 
will revise the cash deposit instructions that were issued to U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection for the preliminary determination 
accordingly.

Amended Preliminary Determination

    We corrected the preliminary dumping margin for the Sailun Group. 
Consequently, we amended the preliminary separate rate for the 
exporter-producer combinations listed below. Further, we corrected 
companies' names as requested.
