Certain Lined Paper Products From India: Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
Document Number: 2010-26191
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-10-21
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain lined paper products (CLPP) from India. For the period September 1, 2008, through August 31, 2009, we have preliminarily determined that Navneet Publications (India) Limited (Navneet) did not make sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value (NV) (i.e., sales were made at de minimis dumping margins). If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this administrative review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For the same period, we have preliminarily determined that U.S. sales have been made below NV by Super Impex. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties based on the difference between the export price (EP) and NV. See ``Preliminary Results of Review'' section of this notice. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.
