The Final Determination in this investigation was published in the Federal Register on April 4, 2011. For the AD Final Determination, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) assigned an antidumping duty margin of 33.28 percent to the mandatory respondent and an antidumping duty margin of 32.79 percent to 29 separate-rate companies.
Section 772(c)(1)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), provides for an adjustment to the export price and constructed export price to offset any countervailing duties (“CVD”) based on export subsidies. Consistent with this mandate, the Department applies an offset to the antidumping (“AD”) cash deposit rate equal to the amount of the export subsidy applied to that same party in the CVD investigation. In its AD Final Determination, the Department stated that for the individually examined respondent it would reduce the cash deposit requirement by the amount of export subsidies found for the same individually examined AD respondents in the CVD proceeding (i.e., 0.26 percent). Similarly, the Department stated that for the separate-rate respondents it would reduce their cash deposit requirements by the amount of export subsidies included in the All Others rate from the CVD Final Determination (i.e., 42.16 percent). However, the provisional measures in the concurrent CVD investigation expired on January 6, 2011. See section 703(d) of the Act. Likewise, the provisional measures in the AD investigation will expire on May 11, 2011. See section 733(d) of the Act. Thus, for the remainder of the AD provisional measures period, April 4, 2011, (the date of publication of the AD Final Determination) until May 11, 2011, no CVD duties will be collected. Because no export subsidy-related duties will be collected during this period, the Department has determined that collecting the full AD cash deposit amounts during this period, without adjusting for the amount of the export subsidies found in the concurrent CVD proceeding, is appropriate.
Therefore, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to collect the full AD cash deposit amounts specified in the AD Final Determination, without adjusting for export subsidies found in the concurrent CVD proceeding, for the period April 4, 2011, until May 11, 2011. Beginning May 11, 2011, and until such time as final measures, if any, are imposed, no cash deposits for estimated AD duties will be collected. In the event that the ITC publishes an affirmative final injury determination in either the AD or CVD proceeding, then appropriate cash deposit instructions will be forwarded to CBP for the imposition of final measures, effective on the date of publication of the ITC's affirmative final injury determination.
This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
