Initiation of Five-Year (“Sunset”) Reviews
Document Number: 2016-28994
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-12-01
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In accordance with section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is automatically initiating the five-year reviews (``Sunset Reviews'') of the antidumping and countervailing duty (``AD/ CVD'') order(s) listed below. The International Trade Commission (``the Commission'') is publishing concurrently with this notice its notice of Institution of Five-Year Review which covers the same order(s).
Temporary Exports to Mexico Under License Exception TMP
Document Number: 2016-28893
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-12-01
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
This final rule aligns the time limit of License Exception Temporary Imports, Exports, Reexports, and Transfers (in-country) (TMP), which authorizes, among other things, certain temporary exports to Mexico, with the time limit of Mexico's Decree for the Promotion of Manufacturing, Maquiladora and Export Services (IMMEX) program. Currently, TMP allows for the temporary export and reexport of various items subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), as long as the items are returned no later than one year after export, reexport, or transfer if not consumed or destroyed during the period of authorized use. Other than a four-year period for certain personal protective equipment, the one-year limit extends to all items shipped under license exception TMP. However, the one-year period does not align with the time constraints of Mexico's IMMEX program, which allows imports of items for manufacturing operations on a time limit that may exceed 18 months. This rule amends TMP to complement the timeline of the IMMEX program. Under this amendment, items temporarily exported or reexported under license exception TMP and imported under the provisions of the IMMEX program would be authorized to remain in Mexico for up to four years from the date of export or reexport.

Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (Department) published its Preliminary Rescission for the new shipper review (NSR) of the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from the Republic of Turkey (Turkey) on July 15, 2016. The period of review (POR) is July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015. As discussed below, we preliminarily found that the sale made by Durum Gida Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (Durum) is not bona fide, and announced our preliminary intent to rescind the NSR. For the final results of this review, we have determined that Durum does not qualify for a NSR. Therefore, we are rescinding this NSR.
