Background

On July 1, 2011, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy.[1] Pursuant to requests from interested parties, the Department published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of this antidumping duty administrative review with respect to the following companies for the period July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011:

Botticelli Mediterraneo S.a.r.1.2 (“Botticelli”), Fiamma Vesuviana S.r.L. (“Fiamma”), Industria Alimentare Filiberto Bianconi 1947 S.p.A. (“Filiberto”), Labor S.r.L. (“Labor”), PAM. S.p.A. and its affiliate, Liguori Pastificio dal 1820 SpA (“PAM”), P.A.P. SNC Di Pazienza G.B. & C. (“P.A.P.”), Premiato Pastificio Afeltra S.r.L. (“Afeltra”), Pasta Lensi S.r.l. (“Lensi”), Pastaficio Zaffiri (“Zaffiri”), Pastificio Attilio Mastromauro-Pasta Granoro S.R.L. (“Granoro”),[2] Pastificio Di Martino Gaetano & F.11i SpA (“Di Martino”), Pastificio Fratelli Cellino, S.r.l. (“Fratelli”), Pastificio Lucio Garofalo S.p.A. (“Garofalo”), Pastificio Riscossa F.11i Mastromauro S.p.A. (“Riscossa”), Rummo S.p.A. Molino e Pastificio (“Rummo”), Rustichella d'Abruzzo S.p.A. (“Rustichella”) and Industria Alimentare Colavita, S.p.A. (“Indalco”).[3]

On September 13, 2011, the Department announced its intention to select mandatory respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) data.[4] On October 3, 2011, the Department selected Garofalo and Rummo as mandatory respondents.[5] On October 11, 2011, Garofalo withdrew its request for a review. On November 7, 2011, Granoro withdrew its request for a deferred review of certain pasta from Italy for the POR of June 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010. On October 19, 2011, and November 17, 2011, respectively, the Department published in the Federal Register notices of partial rescission of the administrative reviews with respect to Garofalo and Granoro.[6] On November 18, 2011, Lensi withdrew its request for a review. On November 21, 2011, Indalco and Labor withdrew their requests for a review. On November 22, 2011, PAM, P.A.P., Riscossa, and Rustichella withdrew their requests for a review. On November 23, 2011, Afeltra and Di Martino withdrew their requests for a review.

Partial Rescission of the 2010-2011 Administrative Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The instant review was initiated on August 26, 2011. See Initiation Notices. Lensi withdrew its request for a review on November 18, 2011, Indalco and Labor withdrew their requests for a review on November 21, 2011, PAM, P.A.P., Riscossa, and Rustichella withdrew their requests for a review on November 22, 2011, and Afeltra and Di Martino withdrew their requests for a review on November 23, 2011, which are within the 90-day deadline. No other party requested an administrative review of these particular companies. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), and consistent with our practice, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy, in part, with respect to Afeltra, Di Martino, Labor, Lensi, Indalco, PAM, P.A.P., Riscossa, and Rustichella.[7] The instant review will continue with respect to Botticelli, Fiamma, Filiberto, Fratelli, Granoro,[8] Rummo, and Zaffiri.

Assessment

The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, Afeltra, Di Martino, Indalco, Labor, Lensi, PAM, P.A.P., Riscossa, and Rustichella, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i).

The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(0(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with Start Printed Page 77205this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent increase in the amount of antidumping and/or countervailing duties reimbursed.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (“APOs”) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under an APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.

This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
