Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to sections 1309 and 1317 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1309 and 1317), and section 4221 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (26 U.S.C. 4221), the Department of Commerce is undertaking to determine whether the governments of the countries listed herein allow or will allow substantially reciprocal customs duties and tax exemptions to aircraft of U.S. registry in connection with international commercial operations similar to those exemptions currently granted to or available to aircraft of those countries by the United States under the aforementioned statutes. The basis for this undertaking is the implementation of certain provisions of the Air Transport Agreement between the United States and the European Community and its Member States, signed in Washington, DC, on April 30, 2007. The Department of Commerce finding would be effective as of March 30, 2008. The above-cited statutes provide exemptions for aircraft of foreign registry from payment of certain customs duties and internal revenue taxes on supplies purchased, imported or stored in the United States for such aircraft in connection with their international commercial operations. These exemptions apply upon a finding by the Secretary of Commerce, or his designee, and communicated to the Department of the Treasury, that such country allows, or will allow, ``substantially reciprocal privileges'' to aircraft of U.S. registry with respect to purchases of such supplies in that country. The Department of Commerce proposes that aircraft registered in the following countries be provided exemptions as allowed by sections 1309 and 1317 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1309 and 1317), and section 4221 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (26 U.S.C. 4221).

Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Preliminary Results of New Shipper Review and Partial Rescission of Administrative Review
Document Number: E8-2648
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-02-13
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 wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The period of review (``POR'') for this administrative review is January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. This administrative review covers multiple producers/exporters of the subject merchandise, three of which are being individually investigated as mandatory respondents. The Department is also conducting a new shipper review for an exporter/ producer. The POR for the new shipper review is also January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. We preliminarily determine that all three mandatory respondents in the administrative review made sales in the United States at prices below normal value (``NV''). With respect to the remaining respondents in the administrative review (herein after collectively referred to as the Separate-Rate Applicants), we preliminarily determine that 30 entities have provided sufficient evidence that they are separate from the state-controlled entity, and we have established a weighted-average margin based on the rates we have calculated for the three mandatory respondents, excluding any rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on adverse facts available, to be applied to these separate rate entities. In addition, we have determined to rescind the review with respect to three entities in this administrative review. See ``Partial Rescission'' section below. Further, we preliminarily determine that the remaining separate-rate applicants have not demonstrated that they are entitled to a separate rate, and will thus be considered part of the PRC entity. Finally, we preliminarily determine that the new shipper made sales in the United States at prices below normal value. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of 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 intend to issue the final results of this review no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice.
