Fresh Garlic from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Results of New Shipper Reviews
Document Number: E5-6391
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-11-18
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The period of review (``POR'') for this administrative review is November 1, 2003, through October 31, 2004. The Department is also conducting new shipper reviews for two exporters/producers. The POR for the new shipper reviews is also November 1, 2003, through October 31, 2004. One company named in the initiation of this review made no exports or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR and, consequently, we are preliminarily rescinding the review for this company. In addition, we are preliminarily rescinding the review for four companies because the requesting party withdrew its request for reviews of those companies. Therefore, this review covers nineteen producers/exporters of the subject merchandise. We preliminarily determine that thirteen of these companies have made sales in the United States at prices below normal value. Further, we preliminarily determine that the remaining six companies are not entitled to separate rates and have assigned them the rate for the PRC- wide entity. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the importer-specific assessment rates are above de minimis. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. Parties who submit comments are requested to submit with each argument a statement of the issue and a brief summary of the argument. We will issue the final results no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice.

Brake Rotors From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
Document Number: 05-22894
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-11-18
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On September 20, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published the notice of preliminary results of its changed circumstances review examining whether Shandong Huanri Group Co., Ltd. (``Huanri Group'') is the successor-in-interest to Shandong Huanri Group General Company (``Huanri Group General'') for purposes of determining antidumping liability. See Brake Rotors From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 70 FR 55107 (September 20, 2005) (``Preliminary Results''). In those Preliminary Results, the Department found that Huanri Group was the successor-in-interest to Huanri Group General. However, after consideration of factual information evaluated in the Department's seventh administrative review of brake rotors from the People's Republic of China (PRC), the Department finds that although Huanri Group remains the successor-in-interest to Huanri Group General, information in the above-referenced administrative review has led the Department to deny Huanri Group General a separate rate. See Comment 7 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results in the 2003/2004 Administrative Review of Brake Rotors from the People's Republic of China, to Stephen J. Claeys, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, from Edward Yang, Senior Enforcement Coordinator / NME Unit, Import Administration (November 7, 2005) (``2003/2004 Issues and Decision Memorandum''), which is on file in the Central Records Unit, Room B-099 of the main Department building.

NMFS proposes specifications for the 2006 summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass fisheries. The implementing regulations for the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan (FMP) require NMFS to publish specifications for the upcoming fishing year for each of the species and to provide an opportunity for public comment. This proposed rule also would make changes to the regulations regarding the commercial black sea bass fishery. The intent of this action is to establish harvest levels and other measures to attain the target fishing mortality rates (F) or exploitation rates specified for these species in the FMP, to reduce bycatch, and to improve the efficiency of the commercial black sea bass fishery. NMFS has conditionally approved four research projects for the harvest of the portion of the quota that has been recommended by the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council) to be set aside for research purposes. In anticipation of receiving applications for Experimental Fishing Permits (EFPs) to conduct this research, the Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Northeast Region, NMFS (Assistant Regional Administrator), has made a preliminary determination that the activities authorized under the EFPs issued in response to the approved Research Set-Aside (RSA) projects would be consistent with the goals and objectives of the FMP. However, further review and consultation may be necessary before a final determination is made to issue any EFP.
