Document Number: 2011-31693
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-12-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On August 5, 2011, the Department of Commerce (Department) published the preliminary results of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film (PET Film) from India.\1\ This review covers one producer/exporter of subject merchandise: Ester Industries Ltd. (Ester). Based on the results of our analysis of the comments received, we did not make any changes to the preliminary results. However, the Department did make changes to the preliminary results of the concurrent countervailing duty administrative review. Accordingly, we adjusted Ester's U.S. price in our margin calculations for Ester's export subsidy rate calculated for the final results of review, causing a change in the antidumping duty margin calculated for these final results. For the final dumping margins, see the ``Final Results of Review'' section below.

Type: Notice
Date: 2011-12-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is seeking public comments on the impact that implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), through the Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Act (CWCIA), and the Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations (CWCR), has had on commercial activities involving ``Schedule 1'' chemicals during calendar year 2011. Additionally, BIS seeks public comments on whether the addition of salts of certain CWC ``Schedule 1'' chemicals (e.g., saxitoxin or nitrogen mustards) to the list of ``Schedule 1'' chemicals in the CWC Annex on Chemicals would impact any commercial activities. Finally, BIS is seeking public comments on whether any commercial chemical production activities in the U.S. could possibly involve the production of a ``Schedule 1'' chemical as an intermediate in the synthesis of other chemicals. In this regard, note that the CWC, CWCIA, and CWCR have the potential to impact commercial activities, not only when the ``Schedule 1'' chemicals are end products, but whenever ``Schedule 1'' chemicals (e.g., nitrogen mustards) are produced as intermediates in the synthesis of other chemicals.

Document Number: 2011-31297
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-12-06
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On August 1, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') initiated the third sunset review of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished (``TRBs'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''). On August 16, 2011, the Timken Company (``Timken''), a domestic producer and the petitioner in the TRBs less-than-fair-value investigation, notified the Department that it intended to participate in the sunset review. On August 16, 2011, the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, AFL-CIO-CLC (``USW''), a union that represents workers engaged in the manufacturing of tapered roller bearings and parts thereof in the United States, also notified the Department that it intended to participate in the sunset review. The Department did not receive a notice of intent to participate from any respondent interested party. Based on the notices of intent to participate and adequate response filed by Timken and USW (together, ``the domestic parties''), and the lack of response from any respondent interested party, the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2).

As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the Order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, at the levels indicated in the ``Final Results of Sunset Review'' section of this notice, infra.

Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (``Department'') is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof (``diamond sawblades'') from the Republic of Korea (``Korea'').

Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Control of Gas Turbine Engines and Related Items the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List (USML)
Document Number: 2011-30978
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-12-06
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
The Bureau of Industry and Security publishes this proposed rule that describes how military gas turbine engines and related articles that the President determines no longer warrant control under Category VI, VII, or VIII of the United States Munitions List (USML) would be controlled under the Commerce Control List (CCL) in new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 9A619, 9B619, 9C619, 9D619 and 9E619. In addition, this proposed rule would control military trainer aircraft turbo prop engines and related items, which are currently controlled under ECCN 9A018.a.2 or .a.3, 9D018 or 9E018, under new ECCN 9A619, 9D619 or 9E619. This rule is one of a planned series of proposed rules that are part of the Administration's Export Control Reform Initiative under which various types of articles presently controlled on the USML under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) would, instead, be controlled on the CCL in accordance with the requirements of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), if and after the President determines that such articles no longer warrant control on the USML. This proposed rule is being published in conjunction with a proposed rule from the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls that would consolidate in USML Category XIX the military gas turbine engines and related articles that would remain on the USML.
Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Control of Military Vehicles and Related Items That the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control on the United States Munitions List
Document Number: 2011-30976
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-12-06
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
The Bureau of Industry and Security publishes a third proposed rule that describes how articles the President determines no longer warrant control under Category VII (military vehicles and related articles) of the United States Munitions List (USML) would be controlled under the Commerce Control List (CCL). This proposed rule would re-propose, with certain changes, five new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) on the Commerce Control List (CCL) that were proposed in a proposed rule published on July 15, 2011 (76 FR 41958). The revised ECCNs in this proposed rule are the result of continued deliberations of the Bureau of Industry and Security, the Department of Defense and the Department of State and recommendations of commenters on the July 15 proposed rule. This proposed rule is being published in conjunction with a proposed rule by the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls to remove from Category VII of the USML (22 CFR 121.1, Category VII) articles that the President determines no longer warrant control on the USML.
International Services Surveys: Amendments to the BE-120, Benchmark Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and Intangible Assets With Foreign Persons
Document Number: 2011-30914
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-12-06
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis
This final rule amends the regulations of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Department of Commerce (BEA) to set forth the reporting requirements for the BE-120, Benchmark Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and Intellectual Property with Foreign Persons. The amended regulations for the BE-120 include both definition changes and the addition of three schedules to better collect data in accordance with new international economic accounting standards. In addition, this rule changes the BE-120 survey title from ``Benchmark Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and Intangible Assets with Foreign Persons'' to ``Benchmark Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and Intellectual Property with Foreign Persons'' because the term ``intellectual property'' is better understood by U.S. respondents. The BE-120 survey covers transactions in selected services and intellectual property with foreign persons in benchmark years. In non- benchmark years, the universe estimates for these transactions are derived from sample data reported on BEA's follow-on survey, which is the Quarterly Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and Intangible Assets with Foreign Persons (BE-125). The data collected by the BE-120 will be used by BEA to estimate the trade in services component of the U.S. International Transactions Accounts and other economic accounts compiled by BEA. The data are also needed by the U.S. government to monitor U.S. exports and imports of selected services and intellectual property; analyze their impact on the U.S. and foreign economies; support U.S. international trade policy for selected services and intellectual property; and assess and promote U.S. competitiveness in international trade in services. In addition, the data will improve the ability of U.S. businesses to identify and evaluate market opportunities.
