Download as PDF 36266 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 108 / Monday, June 6, 2016 / Notices provided by SXT in its request.9 In particular, the CBP data confirmed the price and quantity reported by SXT for the sale that forms the basis for this NSR request. Background The Department published the antidumping duty order on passenger tires from the PRC in the Federal Register on August 10, 2015.1 On February 25, 2016, the Department received a timely request for a NSR from SXT.2 SXT certified that it is the exporter and producer of the passenger tires upon which the request for a NSR is based.3 Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), SXT certified that it did not export passenger tires for sale to the United States during the period of investigation (POI).4 Moreover, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), SXT certified that, since the investigation was initiated, it never has been affiliated with any exporter or producer who exported the subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, including those not individually examined during the investigation.5 Further, as required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), it certified that its export activities are not controlled by the central government of the PRC.6 SXT also certified it had no subsequent shipments of subject merchandise.7 In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), SXT submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States; (2) the date on which the passenger tires were first entered; and (3) the volume of that shipment.8 The Department queried the database of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in an attempt to confirm that the shipment reported by SXT had entered the United States for consumption and that liquidation had been properly suspended for antidumping duties. The information which the Department examined was consistent with that sradovich on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–5484. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Period of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(c), an exporter or producer may request a NSR within one year of the date on which its subject merchandise was first entered. Moreover, 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1) states that if the request for the review is made during the six-month period ending with the end of the semiannual anniversary month, the Secretary will initiate a NSR in the calendar month immediately following the semiannual anniversary month. Further, 19 CFR 315.214(g)(1)(i)(B) states that if the NSR was initiated in the month immediately following the semiannual anniversary month, the POR will be the six-month period immediately preceding the semiannual anniversary month. SXT made the request for a NSR, that included all documents and information required by the statute and regulations, within one year of the date on which its passenger tires first entered. Its request was filed in February, which is the semiannual anniversary month of the order. Therefore, the POR is August 1, 2015, through January 31, 2016.10 1 See Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires From the People’s Republic of China: Amended Final Affirmative Antidumping Duty Determination and Antidumping Duty Order; and Amended Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Countervailing Duty Order. 80 FR 47902 (August 10, 2015). 2 See Shandong Xinghongyuan ’s request for a NSR dated February 25, 2016. 3 Id. at Exhibit 2. 4 Id. 5 Id. 6 Id. 7 Id. at page 2. 8 Id. at Exhibit 1. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:36 Jun 03, 2016 Jkt 238001 Initiation of New Shipper Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b), and the information on the record, the Department finds that SXT’s request meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a NSR and, therefore, is initiating a NSR of SXT. The Department intends to issue the preliminary results within 180 days after the date on which this review is initiated and the final results within 90 days after the date on which we issue the preliminary results.11 It is the Department’s usual practice in cases involving non-market economies to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate (i.e., a separate rate) provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities.12 Accordingly, the Department will issue 9 See Memorandum to the File, ‘‘New Shipper Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the People’s Republic of China: Customs Entries from January 27, 2015, to January 31, 2016,’’ dated March 31, 2016. 10 See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(B). 11 See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. 12 See Import Administration Policy Bulletin, Number: 05.1.

The review will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that SXT is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of passenger tires. On February 24, 2016, the President signed into law the ‘‘Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015,’’ H.R. 644, which made several amendments to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act. We will conduct this new shipper review in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, as amended by the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015.13 Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in this proceeding should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: May 25, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background On August 27, 2014, the Department issued the 2012 Final Results.7 In the 2012 Final Results, the Department assigned Toscelik the total net subsidy rate it had calculated for Toscelik in the prior review of that company, the 2011 Final Results.8 Toscelik had challenged its rate in the 2011 Final Results at the Court and, as a result of remand redetermination and the Court’s affirmance thereof, Toscelik’s rate from the 2011 Final Results decreased.9 Toscelik then challenged the Department’s 2012 Final Results, contending that the results of its challenge to the rate from the 2011 Final Results should extent to the rate the Department assigned Toscelik for the 2012 POR. At issue in the instant litigation was whether the Department should apply the rate the Department determined in the 2011 Amended Final Results to the 2012 Final Results, instead of the rate originally assigned to Toscelik, notwithstanding that Toscelik failed to exhaust its administrative remedies on this issue. The Court held that absent the administrative record underlying the 2011 subsidy rate (pulled forward to 2012), Toscelik lacked an argument ‘‘that could have resulted in redress of the error in the eleventh review.’’ 10 The Court further held that the 2012 determination with regard to Toscelik represented a ‘‘derivative action’’ that ‘‘turns wholly on the lawfulness vel non of the {2011 review}.’’ 11 The Court, thus, considered that in this case the law did not require Toscelik to file an administrative brief merely to preserve the right to appeal and directed Commerce to consider in its remand the 7 See 2012 Final Results.
