    In accordance with section 351.213(b) of the regulations, an 
interested party as defined by section 771(9) of the Act may request in 
writing that the Secretary conduct an administrative review. The 
Department changed its requirements for requesting reviews for 
countervailing duty orders. For both antidumping and countervailing 
duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual 
producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an 
antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for 
which it is requesting a review, and the requesting party must state 
why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or 
exporters.\2\ If the interested party intends for the Secretary to 
review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that 
producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which were 
produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin 
is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state 
specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the request 
is intended to cover.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ If the review request involves a non-market economy and the 
parties subject to the review request do not qualify for separate 
rates, all other exporters of subject merchandise from the non-
market economy country who do not have a separate rate will be 
covered by the review as part of the single entity of which the 
named firms are a part.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate 
in prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an 
administrative review of that party absent new information as to the 
party's location. Moreover, if the interested party who

[[Page 159]]

files a request for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter 
for which it requested the review, the interested party must provide an 
explanation of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter 
at the same time it files its request for review, in order for the 
Secretary to determine if the interested party's attempts were 
reasonable, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii).
    As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), the 
Department has clarified its practice with respect to the collection of 
final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate 
firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in 
determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise 
subject to antidumping findings and orders. See also the Import 
Administration Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov.
    Six copies of the request should be submitted to the Assistant 
Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. The Department also 
asks parties to serve a copy of their requests to the Office of 
Antidumping/Countervailing Operations, Attention: Sheila Forbes, in 
room 3065 of the main Commerce Building. Further, in accordance with 
section 351.303(f)(l)(i) of the regulations, a copy of each request 
must be served on every party on the Department's service list.
    The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of 
``Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation'' for requests received 
by the last day of January 2008. If the Department does not receive, by 
the last day of January 2008, a request for review of entries covered 
by an order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice 
and for the period identified above, the Department will instruct the 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping or 
countervailing duties on those entries at a rate equal to the cash 
deposit of (or bond for) estimated antidumping or countervailing duties 
required on those entries at the time of entry, or withdrawal from 
warehouse, for consumption and to continue to collect the cash deposit 
previously ordered. This notice is not required by statute but is 
published as a service to the international trading community.

    Dated: December 19, 2007.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
