Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings
Document Number: 2010-32632
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-12-28
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is requesting comments regarding the calculation of the weighted average dumping margin and antidumping duty assessment rate in certain antidumping duty proceedings. Currently, in a review of an antidumping duty order conducted under 19 CFR 351.213 (administrative review), 351.214 (new shipper review), and 351.215 (expedited antidumping review) (collectively ``reviews''), the Department usually makes comparisons between transaction-specific export prices and average normal values and does not offset any dumping that is found with the results of comparisons for which the transaction-specific export price exceeds the average normal value. In addition, in the most recent original antidumping duty investigation in which the Department calculated the weighted average margins of dumping using transaction-to-transaction comparisons, the Department did not grant offsets for non-dumped comparisons. Several World Trade Organization (``WTO'') dispute settlement reports have found that the United States application of these methodologies was inconsistent with our WTO obligations. In response to these reports, the Department proposes modification of its methodologies, including changes to certain provisions of the Department's regulations.

As a result of our analysis, the Department preliminarily finds that revocation of the CVD order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy.

(``TMI''), Tianjin Xianghaiqi Resources Import & Export Trade Co., Ltd. (``TXR''), and Pan Asia Magnesium Co., Ltd. (``Pan Asia'').

We invited interested parties to comment on our Preliminary Results. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made changes to the margin calculations for TMI. The final dumping margin for this review is listed in the ``Final Results Margins'' section below.

The Department preliminarily grants a separate rate to four companies which demonstrated the eligibility for separate rate status. The rates assigned to each of these companies, can be found in the ``Preliminary Results of Review'' section of this notice.

De Facto Criteria for Establishing a Separate Rate in Antidumping Proceedings Involving Non-Market Economy Countries
Document Number: 2010-31644
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-12-16
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In antidumping proceedings involving non-market economy (``NME'') countries,\1\ the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') has a rebuttable presumption that the export activities of all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assessed a single antidumping duty rate (i.e., the NME- Entity rate). It is the Department's policy to assign to all exporters of merchandise subject to investigation in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a ``separate rate'' (i.e., a dumping margin separate from the margin assigned to the NME-Entity). Exporters can demonstrate this independence through the absence of both de jure and de facto governmental control over their export activities.

Document Number: 2010-31517
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-12-15
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In response to requests by interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico. This administrative review covers mandatory respondents Mueller Comercial de Mexico, S. de R.L. de C.V. (Mueller) and Ternium Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (Ternium). Tuberia Nacional, S.A. de C.V. (TUNA) is subject to a concurrent changed circumstances review of this order; in its changed circumstances review, the Department has preliminarily determined that Lamina y Placa Comercial, S.A. de C.V. (Lamina) is the successor-in-interest to TUNA. See Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe and Tube from Mexico, 75 FR 67685 (November 3, 2010). Therefore, we are continuing to refer to this entity as TUNA for these preliminary results, pending a final determination. The period of review (POR) is November 1, 2008, through October 31, 2009. We preliminarily determine that sales of subject merchandise have been made at less than normal value (NV). One of the companies, Ternium, refused to cooperate with the Department in this administrative review. We have calculated a dumping margin for Mueller. We preliminarily determine that TUNA had no reviewable sales, shipments, or entries during the POR. The Department's review of import data supported TUNA's claim (see ``TUNA's No-Shipment Claim'' section of this notice for further explanation). Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on lightweight thermal paper from Germany.

Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.
