Fresh Garlic from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of New Shipper Review
The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting a new shipper review (NSR) of Qingdao Sea-line International Trade Co. Ltd. (Qingdao Sea-line) under the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People's Republic of China (PRC) covering the period of review (POR) of November 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009. As discussed below, we preliminarily determine that Qingdao Sea-line has made sales in the United States at prices below normal value (NV). Qingdao Sea-line has participated fully in the review and has demonstrated its eligibility for a separate rate in this NSR. The dumping margin is set forth in the ``Preliminary Results of the Review'' section below. 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 importer-specific assessment rates are above de minimis. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. See ``Comments'' section below.
