Glycine from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
In response to a request from Geo Specialty Chemicals, Inc. (``GSC''), a domestic glycine producer, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). This review covers Nantong Dongchang Chemical Industry Corporation (``Nantong Dongchang'') and Baoding Mantong Fine Chemistry Co., Ltd. (``Baoding Mantong''). The period of review (``POR'') is March 1, 2007, through February 29, 2008. We did not receive any response from Nantong Dongchang to the Department's antidumping questionnaire in this administrative review; therefore, we have preliminarily determined to apply facts otherwise available with an adverse inference (``AFA'') to Nantong Dongchang. In addition, we have preliminarily determined that Baoding Mantong made sales below normal value (``NV''). The preliminary results are listed below in the section titled ``Preliminary Results of the Review.'' If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess the ad valorem margins against the entered value of each entry of the subject merchandise during the POR, where applicable.
Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of Countervailing Duty Order: Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand from India
On December 1, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated a sunset review of the countervailing duty (``CVD'') order on prestressed concrete steel wire strand (``PC strand'') from India pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 73 FR 72770 (December 1, 2008). On the basis of a notice of intent to participate and an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of domestic interested parties and an inadequate response (in this case, no response) from respondent interested parties, the Department decided to conduct an expedited sunset review of this CVD order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(B). As a result of this review, the Department finds that revocation of the CVD order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy at the level indicated in the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.
