Background On December 28, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of the second administrative review of the antidumping duty order on PET film from the PRC. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 81565 (December 28, 2010).

However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. AGENCY: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review The Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete the instant administrative review within the original time limits established by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act because we require additional time to evaluate the most appropriate surrogate values on the administrative record to use in this segment of the proceeding. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completing the preliminary results of the instant administrative review by 60 days. The new deadline is October 3, 2011.1 The deadline for the final results 1 The 60 day extension falls on October 1, 2011 which is a Saturday. It is the Department’s practice to issue a determination on the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

[[Page 42114]]

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.

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:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quimica Amtex, S.A. de C.V..............................            0.80
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 
15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review.
    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review if any 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 
``all-others'' rate established in the less-than-fair 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\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ On May 20, 2011, the Department revoked the order, with an 
effective date of July 11, 2010. See Purified Carboxymethylcellulose

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 comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written
