Expected Non-Market Economy Wages: Request for Comments on 2009 Calculation
The Department of Commerce (``Department''') has a longstanding practice of calculating expected non-market economy (``NME'') wages for use as the surrogate value for direct labor in antidumping proceedings involving NME countries. These expected NME wages are calculated annually in accordance with the Department's regulations, see 19 CFR 351.408(c)(3). This notice constitutes the Department's 2009 expected NME wages, which were calculated from 2007 data made available in 2009 according to the Department's revised methodology described in the Federal Register notice entitled Antidumping Methodologies: Market Economy Inputs, Expected Non-Market Economy Wages, Duty Drawback; and Request for Comments, 71 FR 61716, Oct. 19, 2006 (hereafter, the Antidumping Methodologies notice). The Department further provides the public with an opportunity to comment on potential clerical errors in the calculation. Id.
Chlorinated Isocyanurates from the People's Republic of China, Notice of Intent to Partially Rescind Administrative Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2), Zhucheng Taisheng Chemcial Co., Ltd. (``Zhucheng Taisheng''), submitted a timely request for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') purporting to be a producer and exporter of subject merchandise. We initiated this review on July 29, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009) (``Initiation Notice''). In a letter dated August 24, 2009, Zhucheng Taisheng explained that, in the process of preparing the section A questionnaire response for this review, it discovered that the actual producer and exporter of the subject merchandise was Zhucheng Taisheng Angmu Chemical Co., Ltd. (``Zhucheng Taisheng Angmu''), with whom Zhucheng Taisheng claims to be affiliated.\1\ Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2), only a producer or an exporter of the subject merchandise may request an administrative review. Because Zhucheng Taisheng is not an exporter or producer of subject merchandise, we intend to rescind the administrative review for Zhucheng Taisheng.
Certain Lined Paper Products From India: Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
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, 2007, through August 31, 2008, we have preliminarily determined that U.S. sales have been made below normal value (NV) by Navneet Publications (India) Limited (Navneet) and Blue Bird India Ltd. (Blue Bird). Because Blue Bird is a selected mandatory respondent and was not responsive to the Department's requests for information, we have preliminarily assigned to Blue Bird a margin based on adverse facts available (AFA). If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (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.
