Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department is conducting an administrative review of this Order, covering the period of review (``POR'') of June 1, 2007, - May 31, 2008. The Department preliminarily found that Itochu Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Yitian Juice (Shaanxi) Co., Ltd. and Laiyang Yitian Juice Co., Ltd., (collectively known as ``Itochu'') did not sell the subject merchandise at less than normal value (``NV'') and thus assigned a zero margin for the POR. See Non-Frozen Apple Juice Concentrate from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results for the Administrative Review, 74 FR 31238 (June 30, 2009) (``Preliminary Results''). Based upon our analysis of comments received, the Department made no changes to the margin calculations in the final results. Therefore, we will instruct the 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.
