FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

Lingjun Wang or David Lindgren, AD/CVD Operations, Office 6, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-2316 or (202) 482-3870, respectively.

Background

On November 1, 2011, the Department of Commerce (Department) published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request administrative review of, inter alia, the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People's Republic of China (PRC) covering the period November 1, 2010, through October 31, 2011.[1] In November 2011, the Department received review requests from PRC producers/exporters of fresh garlic [2] and the Fresh Garlic Producer Association (FGPA) and its individual members (collectively, Petitioners).[3] On December 30, 2011, the Department initiated this review for 120 producers/exporters.[4] Finally, on March 29, 2012, Petitioners timely withdrew their review requests for 100 producers/exporters listed as an attachment to this notice; [5] one company, Zhengzhou Harmoni Spice Co., Ltd. also filed a timely withdrawal of its review request on the same date.

Partial Rescission

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the day of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The aforementioned requests for review were withdrawn within the 90-day period. Because the requests for review were timely withdrawn and because no other party requested a review of the aforementioned producers/exporters, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are partially rescinding this review with respect to these producers/exporters.

Assessment Rates

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For those producers/exporters for which this review has been rescinded and which have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated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, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2). For those producers/exporters for which this review has been rescinded and which have not been assigned a separate rate from a prior segment of the proceeding, the Department has stated that they belong to the PRC-wide entity and that the administrative review will continue for these companies.[6] In both cases, the Department intends to issue the appropriate liquidation instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(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 this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, 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 section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

Dated: June 11, 2012.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
