\1\ Pursuant to a request from the Canadian Wheat Board, the Department deferred the 10/01/2004-09/30/2005 antidumping duty review of hard red spring wheat for one year. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 72107 (December 1, 2005). The Department is now automatically initiating this review one year later because we have not received a request to withdraw from the Canadian Wheat Board. We did not receive a request for a review of the 10/01/2005-01/01/2006 period. \2\ If the above-named company does not qualify for a separate rate, all other exporters of Polyvinyl Alcohol from the People's Republic of China who have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered by this review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named exporter is a part. \3\ If the above-named company does not qualify for a separate rate, all other exporters of Certain Helical Spring Lock Washers from the People's Republic of China who have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered by this review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named exporter is a part. \4\ Pursuant to a request from the Canadian Wheat Board, the Department deferred the 01/01/2004-12/31/2004 countervailing duty review of hard red spring wheat for one year. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 72107 (December 1, 2005). The Department is now automatically initiating this review one year later because we have not received a request to withdraw from the Canadian Wheat Board. We did not receive a request for a review of the 1/1/2005-1/1/2006 period.

During any administrative review covering all or part of a period falling between the first and second or third and fourth anniversary of the publication of an antidumping duty order under section 351.211 or a determination under section 351.218(f)(4) to continue an order or suspended investigation (after sunset review), the Secretary, if requested by a domestic interested party within 30 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the review, will determine, consistent with FAG Italia v. United States, 291 F.3d 806 (Fed Cir. 2002), as appropriate, whether antidumping duties have been absorbed by an exporter or producer subject to the review if the subject merchandise is sold in the United States through an importer that is affiliated with such exporter or producer. The request must include the name(s) of the exporter or producer for which the inquiry is requested.

Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305.

These initiations and this notice are in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1675(a)), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).
