SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 14, 2009, the Department published its final results of 
the administrative review for CLPP from the PRC for the period April 
17, 2006, through August 31, 2007. See Certain Lined Paper Products 
From the People's Republic of China: Notice of Final Results of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 17160 (April 14, 2009) 
(``Final Results'').
    On December 22, 2009, the Department published its amended final 
results of review. See Notice of Amended Final Results of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Lined Paper Products 
From the People's Republic of China, 74 FR 68036 (December 22, 2009) 
(``Amended Final'').
    AASPS challenged the Department's Amended Final at the CIT. On July 
27, 2010, the CIT remanded the case for the Department to revisit its 
determination that the financial information for Sundaram Multi Pap 
Ltd. (``Sundaram'') is the best information available to calculate 
surrogate financial values for Lian Li.
    On December 6, 2010, the Department issued its final results of 
remand redetermination. See Remand Results. The Department continued to 
find that Sundaram's financial information constitutes the best 
available information on the record for calculating surrogate financial 
ratios. The Department also determined that, in the Amended Final, it 
had not identified the figures used to calculate the surrogate 
financial ratios, and had erroneously relied on actual values from the 
Sundaram Profit and Loss statement as opposed to dividing those values 
by the appropriate denominator to calculate the surrogate financial 
ratios. In the Remand Results, the Department calculated the surrogate 
financial ratios by dividing the actual values from the Sundaram Profit 
and Loss statement by the appropriate denominator. See Remand Results 
at 28. On August 11, 2011, the CIT affirmed the Department's Remand 
Results. See Association of American School Paper Suppliers v. United 
States, Court No. 09-00163, Slip Op. 11-101 (August 11, 2011).

Timken Notice

    Consistent with the decision of the United States Court of Appeals 
for the Federal Circuit (``CAFC'') in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 
F.2d 337 (CAFC 1990) (``Timken''), as clarified by Diamond Sawblades 
Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (CAFC 2010), pursuant 
to section 516A(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'') 
19 U.S.C. 1516a(c), the Department must publish a notice of a court 
decision that is not ``in harmony'' with a Department determination and 
must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ``conclusive'' court 
decision. The CIT's judgment on August 11, 2011, sustaining the 
Department's Remand Results with respect to Lian Li constitutes a 
decision of that court that is not in harmony with the Department's 
Amended Final. This notice is published in fulfillment of the 
publication requirements of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will 
continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise 
pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending 
a final and conclusive court decision.

Amended Final Results

    Because there is now a final court decision with respect to Lian 
Li, Lian Li's weighted-average dumping margin for the period April 1, 
2006, through August 31, 2007, is 8.10 percent. In the event the CIT's 
ruling is not appealed or, if appealed, upheld by the CAFC, the 
Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess 
antidumping duties on entries of the subject merchandise exported 
during the POR by Lian Li using the revised assessment rate calculated 
by the Department in the Remand Results.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
516A(e)(1), 751(a)(1), and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
