The information which the Department examined was consistent with that provided by Jiangsu Runchen in its request.9 1 See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order; Honey from the People’s Republic of China, 66 FR 63670 (December 10, 2001) (‘‘Order’’). 2 See Letter to the Secretary from Jiangsu Runchen, ‘‘Honey from the People’s Republic of China Request for New Shipper Review,’’ dated December 23, 2015 (‘‘NSR Request’’). 3 Id. at 2 and Attachment 1. 4 Id. at Attachment 1. 5 Id. 6 Id. 7 Id. 8 Id. at Attachment 2. 9 See Memorandum to the File from Carrie Bethea, International Trade Compliance Analyst, Office V, ‘‘U.S. Customs and Border Protection Query Results for Jiangsu Runchen,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Feb 02, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 anniversary month, the Secretary will initiate a NSR in the calendar month immediately following the anniversary month. Further, 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A) states that if the NSR was initiated in the month immediately following the anniversary month, the POR will be the 12-month period immediately preceding the anniversary month. Jiangsu Runchen 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 honey first entered. Its request was filed in December, which is the anniversary month of the Order. Therefore, the POR is December 1, 2015, through November 30, 2016. Initiation of New Shipper Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(b) and based on the information on the record, the Department finds that Jiangsu Runchen’s request meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a NSR for shipments of honey from the PRC produced and exported by Jiangsu Runchen. Accordingly, the Department is initiating a NSR of Jiangsu Runchen.10 Absent a determination that the new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated, the Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this NSR within 180 days from the date of initiation and the final results within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued.11 If the information supplied by Jiangsu Runchen is found to be incorrect or insufficient during the course of this proceeding, the Department may rescind the review for Jiangsu Runchen or apply facts available pursuant to section 776 of the Act, depending on the facts on the record. It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economies (‘‘NMEs’’), 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 10 See ‘Memorandum to the File, from Carrie Bethea, International Trade Compliance Analyst, ‘‘Honey from the People’s Republic of China: New Shipper Initiation Checklist,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. 11 See Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i). PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9193 jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities.12 Accordingly, the Department will issue questionnaires to Jiangsu Runchen that will include a section requesting information concerning its eligibility for a separate rate. The NSR will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that Jiangsu Runchen is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of honey from the PRC. On February 24, 2016, the President signed into law the ‘‘Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015,’’ Public Law 114–125, 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 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 in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214, and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: January 30, 2017.

Letters of Appearance and Administrative Protective Orders

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.103(d), the Department will maintain and 
make available a public service list for these proceedings. Parties 
wishing to participate in any of these five-year reviews must file 
letters of appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 351.103(d)). To facilitate 
the timely preparation of the public service list, it is requested that 
those seeking recognition as interested parties to a proceeding submit 
an entry of appearance within 10 days of the publication of the Notice 
of Initiation.
    Because deadlines in Sunset Reviews can be very short, we urge 
interested parties who want access to proprietary information under 
administrative protective order (``APO'') to file an APO application 
immediately following publication in the Federal Register of this 
notice of initiation. The Department's regulations on submission of 
proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business 
proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304-306.

participate in a Sunset Review must respond not later than 15 days 
after the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of 
initiation by filing a notice of intent to participate. The required 
contents of the notice of intent to participate are set forth at 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with the Department's regulations, if 
we do not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one 
domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the Department will 
automatically revoke the order without further review.\6\

    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate 
from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in a Sunset Review must file 
complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation. The 
required contents of a substantive response, on an order-specific 
basis, are

set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain information
