Period of Review

    The POR is November 1, 2009, through October 31, 2010.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are all gauges of raw, pre-
treated, or primed PET film, whether extruded or co-extruded. Excluded 
are metalized films and other finished films that have had at least one 
of their surfaces modified by the application of a performance-
enhancing resinous or inorganic layer more than 0.00001 inches thick. 
Also excluded is roller transport cleaning film which has at least one 
of its surfaces modified by application of 0.5 micrometers of SBR 
latex. Tracing and drafting film is also excluded. PET film is 
classifiable under subheading 3920.62.00.90 of the HTSUS. While HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our 
written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on an analysis of the comments received, the Department has 
made certain changes in the margin calculation. For the final results, 
the Department has made the following changes:

general and administrative expenses, and profit applicable to 
Respondents using information from the financial statements of JBF 
Industries Limited, a manufacturer in India of merchandise comparable 
to the subject merchandise.
     We revised the surrogate valuation of PET scrap sold, 
applying Indian HTS subheading 3907.60.

Final Results Margin

    We determine the weighted-average dumping margins for the period 
November 1, 2009, through October 31, 2010, to be:

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall 
assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. For 
assessment purposes, we calculated importer (or customer)-specific 
assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. Where 
appropriate, we calculated an ad valorem rate for each importer (or 
customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to 
that party by the total entered values associated with those 
transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this basis, we 
will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the 
entered customs values for the subject merchandise. Where appropriate, 
we calculated a per-unit rate for each importer (or customer) by 
dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by 
the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. For duty-
assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess 
the resulting per-unit rate against the entered quantity of the subject 
merchandise. Where an importer (or customer)-specific assessment rate 
is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), the Department will 
instruct CBP to assess that importer (or customer's) entries of subject 
merchandise without regard to antidumping duties, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.106(c)(2). The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these 
final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Wanhua,

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or

business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure 
to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which 
is subject to sanction.
