On July 3, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy.
Pursuant to requests from interested parties, and in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, amended (the Act), Commerce published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of an antidumping duty administrative review with respect to the following companies covering the period July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018:
Agritalia S.r.L. (Agritalia), Francesco Tamma S.p.A. (Tamma), Ghigi 1870 S.p.A. (Ghigi), Ghigi Industria Agroalimentare in San Clemente S.r.l., Pasta Zara S.p.A. (Zara), Industria Alimentare Colavita S.p.A. (Indalco), La Molisana S.p.A. (La Molisana), and Tesa SrL (Tesa).
On October 1, 2018, Tamma timely withdrew its request for a review.
On November 9, 2018, La Molisana timely withdrew its request for a review.
No other party requested an administrative review of these particular companies.
Partial Rescission of the 2017-2018 Administrative Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce 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. All of the aforementioned withdrawal requests were timely submitted and no other interested 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 Tamma and La Molisana.
The instant review will continue with respect to the following companies: Agritalia, Ghigi/Zara,
Indalco, and Tesa.
Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, Tamma and La Molisana, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry,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, 2017, through June 30, 2018, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i).
Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.Start Printed Page 5056
Notification to Importers
This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order
This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) 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 Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
