Download as PDF 60884 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 195 / Thursday, October 8, 2015 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Initiation of New Shipper Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b), the Department finds that Yuqiao’s request meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for initiation of a new shipper review.6 Accordingly, the Department is initiating a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on mushrooms from the PRC for subject merchandise produced by Kangfa and exported by Yuqaio. Absent a determination that the case is extraordinarily complicated, the Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this review within 180 days after the date on which this review is initiated and the final results within 90 days after the date on which the Department issues the preliminary results.7 In cases involving non-market economies, the Department requires that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty 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.8 Accordingly, the Department will issue a questionnaire to Yuqiao that will include a separate rates section. This review may proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that Yuqiao is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of mushrooms. The Department 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 subject merchandise exported by Yuqiao and produced by Kangfa in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Kangfa certified that the sales which form the basis for its request were produced by Kangfa, the Department will instruct CBP to permit the use of a bond only for entries of subject merchandise produced by Kangfa and exported by Yuqiao. To assist in its analysis of the bona fides of Yuqiao’s sales, upon initiation of this new shipper review, the 6 See Memorandum from Michael J. Heaney to the File through Scot T. Fullerton entitled, ‘‘Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review: Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China (A–570–851),’’ dated September xx, 2015. 7 See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(h)(i). 8 See, e.g., Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 75 FR 72794, 72796 (November 26, 2010), unchanged in Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 76 FR 9747 (February 22, 2011).
