Document: Policy Bulletin 10.3

Topic: Factors of Production

Summary: With respect to the proper reporting of production inputs by respondent companies in
antidumping duty investigations and reviews involving non-market economy (“NME”) countries,
the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) requires that respondent companies in NMEs
report production inputs, i.e., factors of production, for their total production of the merchandise
meeting the description in the scope of the investigation or review. This reporting requirement is regardless of the ultimate country of destination, i.e., it does not pertain only to the inputs into
the merchandise exported to the United States, location of the production facility, or production
process employed.

Document: Policy Bulletin 10.1

Topic: Specificity of Subsidies to State-Owned Enterprises

Summary: This policy bulletin confirms the Department’s practice with respect to the specificity of subsidies granted to state-owned enterprises (SOEs). The Department’s policy is that SOEs will normally be considered to be a “group” of enterprises within the meaning of section 771(5A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.502. Accordingly, subsidies that are limited in law or in fact to SOEs will normally be considered specific if the criteria for specificity contained in section 771(5A) of the Act are satisfied.

Summary: This policy bulletin explains a clarification in practice regarding the application of the interest provisions of section 778(a) of the Tariff Act in the context of new shipper reviews: the Department is clarifying its practice to require that entries of merchandise subject to an AD/CVD order made while a new shipper review is conducted that are secured by a bond in lieu of a cash deposit be subject to the interest provisions of section 778(a) if and when the Department rescinds that new shipper review.

DOC-ITA-EC-AD/CVD-8

Document: Policy Bulletin 03.1

Topic: Market or Non-Market Economy Country Designation

Summary: The Government of Bulgaria ("GOB") requested that the Department of Commerce ("Department") clarify Bulgaria's market economy status under the U.S. antidumping duty law. Bulgaria has never been subject to a U.S. antidumping duty investigation and, therefore, has never been formally designated a non-market economy ("NME") country. The GOB therefore seeks clarification of the basis (market or non-market) on which any future antidumping proceeding would proceed.

Summary: When we disregard any below-cost foreign market sales, we will match U.S. sales to any

remaining foreign market sales in the ordinary course of trade of identical or similar models. In

cases where we conduct a cost investigation, we will use constructed value as the basis for

normal value only when there are no above-cost sales that are otherwise suitable for comparison

Document: Policy Bulletin 97.1

Topic: Calculation of Profit for Constructed Export Price Transactions

Summary: Section 772(d)(3) of the statute requires the Department, in determining the constructed export price (CEP), to identify and deduct from the starting price in the U.S. market an amount for profit allocable to selling, distribution and further-manufacturing activities in the United States. Section 772(f) provides the rule for determining the amount of CEP profit to deduct from the CEP starting price. This paper describes, in general, how we will compute the total actual profit for CEP and how we will allocate that profit to the respondent's U.S. activities.

March 25, 1994

DOC-ITA-EC-AD/CVD-19

Document: Policy Bulletin 94.2

Topic: Treatment of Inventory Carrying Cost in Constructed Value

Summary: Inventory carrying costs should be reported and included in calculating constructed value for both exporter's sales prices and purchase prices in cases where constructed value is used. An adjustment for U.S. and home market inventory carrying costs should be made to both USP and FMV, respectively, for exporter's sales price sales. In purchase price sales, the adjustment is contingent on the respondent's claim for a commission adjustment to USP. If there is a commission in the United States but not the home market, then home market indirect selling expenses -- including inventory carrying costs -- should be subtracted from FMV up to the amount of the U.S. commission. If there is not a U.S. commission but there is a commission in the home market, U.S. inventory carrying costs and other indirect selling expenses should be added to FMV (i.e., included in constructed value) up to the amount of the commission deducted from FMV.

Topic: The Use of Constructed Value in COP Cases

Summary: In determining FMV, if the Department finds that sales of a given model, otherwise suitable for comparison, are sold below the cost of production, and the remaining sales of that model are inadequate to determine FMV, the Department will use constructed value to determine FMV.

Topic: Differences in Merchandise; 20% Rule

Summary: Sales of products in domestic or third country markets with variable manufacturing cost differences exceeding 20% of the total average cost of manufacture, on a model specific basis, of the product exported to

the United States will normally not be utilized in determining foreign market value. Any use of products with the cost of merchandise differences exceeding 20% shall be noted and fully explained.

The Department determined that several of these comments warrant consideration on a case-by-case basis when assessing whether a foreign producer/exporter in an NME country is sufficiently free of government control of its export activities to warrant separate rate status.
