Background

On December 17, 2002, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) received a request from Yantai Golden Tide Fruits & Vegetable Food Co., Ltd. (“Golden Tide”), pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), and in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b), to conduct a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on non-frozen apple juice concentrate (“NFAJC”) from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”). Golden Tide identified itself as a producer and exporter of non-frozen apple juice concentrate from the PRC. This order has a June anniversary month.

Initiation of Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b), Golden Tide certified in its request that it did not export the subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (“POI”) (October 1, 1998 through March 31, 1999), that it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer who exported the subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, and that its export activities are not controlled by Start Printed Page 4763the central government of the PRC. Golden Tide submitted documentation establishing: (i) the date on which its NFAJC was first shipped to the USA; (ii) the volume of that shipment and subsequent shipments; and (iii) the date of the first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.

In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214, we are initiating a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on NFAJC from the PRC. We intend to issue the preliminary results of this review not later than 180 days from the date of publication of this notice. We intend to issue final results of this review no later than 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. See 19 CFR 351.214(i). All provisions of 19 CFR 351.214 will apply to Golden Tide throughout the duration of this new shipper review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(B), the standard period of review in a new shipper review initiated in the month immediately following the semiannual anniversary month will be the six-month period immediately preceding the semi-annual anniversary month.
