Download as PDF 42114 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 137 / Monday, July 18, 2011 / Notices Background On April 12, 2011, the Department published the preliminary results of this review in the Federal Register. See Preliminary Results. We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. We received no comments or requests for a hearing. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is all purified carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), sometimes also referred to as purified sodium CMC, polyanionic cellulose, or cellulose gum, which is a white to off-white, non-toxic, odorless, biodegradable powder, comprising sodium CMC that has been refined and purified to a minimum assay of 90 percent. Purified CMC does not include unpurified or crude CMC, CMC Fluidized Polymer Suspensions, and CMC that is cross-linked through heat treatment. Purified CMC is CMC that has undergone one or more purification operations which, at a minimum, reduce the remaining salt and other by-product portion of the product to less than ten percent. The merchandise subject to this order is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at subheading 3912.31.00. This tariff classification is provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Final Results of Review As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the Preliminary Results. As there have been no changes from or comments on the Preliminary Results, there is no decision memorandum accompanying this Federal Register notice. For further details of the issues addressed in this proceeding, see Preliminary Results. The final weighted-average dumping margin for the period July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010, is as follows: importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.50 percent). Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. This clarification will also apply to POR entries of subject merchandise produced by companies for which we rescind the review based on certifications of no shipments, because these companies certify that they made no POR shipments of subject merchandise for which they had knowledge of U.S. destination. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the ‘‘allothers’’ rate established in the less-thanfair value (LTFV) investigation if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. Cash Deposit Requirements Because we revoked the order with an effective date of July 11, 2010, no cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties are required.1 Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers 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 Weighted-avcomply with this requirement could Producer/exporter erage margin (percentage) result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping Quimica Amtex, S.A. de C.V. 0.80 duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping Assessment duties.
