Background

The Department has received a request from a pasta producer and its affiliated exporter in Turkey, Beslen Makarna Gida Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., and Beslen Pazariarma Gida Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., respectively (collectively “Beslen”), to conduct a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Turkey, issued July 24, 1996 (61 FR 38545).

Beslen submitted documentation establishing the date on which its merchandise was first entered for consumption in the United States, the volume of that first shipment and the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.

In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and section 351.214(d) of the Department's regulations, we are initiating a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Turkey.
