Document Number: 2012-19069
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-08-03
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On April 2, 2012, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated the third sunset review of the antidumping duty order on certain small diameter seamless carbon and alloy steel standard, line, and pressure pipe (seamless pipe) from Germany pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Review, 77 FR 19643 (April 2, 2012) (Sunset Initiation). On the basis of a notice of intent to participate and an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of a domestic interested party, and no response from a respondent interested party, the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review. As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping. The magnitude of dumping likely to prevail if the order were revoked is identified in the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.

Document Number: 2012-19057
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-08-03
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 pasta (``pasta'') from Italy for the period of review (``POR'') July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011. This review covers the following seven companies: Botticelli Mediterraneo S.a.r.l. (``Botticelli''), Fiamma Vesuviana S.r.L. (``Fiamma''), Industria Alimentare Filiberto Bianconi 1947 S.p.A. (``Filiberto''), Pastificio Fratelli Cellino, S.r.l. (``Fratelli''), Pastificio Attilio Mastromauro Granoro S.r.L. (``Granoro''), Rummo S.p.A. Molino e Pastificio and its affiliates (``Rummo''), and Pastificio Zaffiri (``Zaffiri''). We preliminarily find that Rummo, Filiberto, Fratelli, and Zaffiri sold subject merchandise at less than normal value (NV) (dumping). We further find that there were no exports of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR by Fiamma and Botticelli. Finally, in response to its request for revocation and because this would be the third year of no dumping by Granoro, we preliminarily intend to revoke the antidumping duty order with regard to Granoro. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this administrative review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.
