Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.

Assessment Rate Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of 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 amended 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 dutyassessment 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:29 Mar 13, 2012 Jkt 226001 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). On September 28, 2011, the U.S. Court of International Trade issued a preliminary injunction enjoining liquidation of certain entries which are subject to the antidumping duty order on SDGEs from the PRC, for the POR.7 Accordingly, the Department will not issue assessment instructions for any entries subject to the above-mentioned injunction to CBP after publication of this notice. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective retroactively on any entries made on or after September 13, 2011, the date of publication of the Final Results, for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Fushun Jinly, the Fangda Group, and Muzi, the cash deposit rate will be the amended final margin rate shown above in the ‘‘Ministerial Errors’’ section of this notice; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRCwide rate of 159.64 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. These amended final results are published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Pursuant to Executive Order 11625, MBDA was created specifically to 
foster the establishment and growth of MBEs. MBDA promotes the 
strategic growth and expansion of MBEs by offering management and 
technical assistance through a nationwide network of 40 business 
centers. Among the 40 business centers, there are six NABECs and one 
satellite office specifically designed to serve the Native American and 
Alaska Native population providing overall business development 
assistance services and promoting the growth and competitiveness of 
eligible Native American and minority-owned businesses. The NABECs are 
located in the following cities: Mesa, Arizona; El Monte, California; 
Albuquerque, New Mexico; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Seattle, Washington; 
Bismarck, North Dakota; and Anchorage, Alaska (satellite office). Each 
NABEC has a designated geographic area surrounding the state in which 
it is located, with the following exceptions: the NABEC in Seattle, 
Washington covers the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho; and the 
NABEC in Bismarck, North Dakota covers the states of North Dakota and 
South Dakota. The Anchorage, Alaska satellite office is operated from 
the NABEC located in Mesa, Arizona.
    The NABEC services include, but are not limited to, initial 
consultations and assessments, business technical assistance, 
education, and access to federal and non-federal procurement and 
financing opportunities. Specific performance requirements and metrics 
are used by MBDA to evaluate each project and become a key component of 
the NABEC program. More information on the NABEC programs can be found 
on MBDA's Web site at http://www.mbda.gov/main/grantcompetitions.
    Under the current program, federal funding for centers ranges from 
$200,000 to $297,500 and each center has a required cost share of 10 
percent of total project cost. All six centers are under three-year 
cooperative agreements which expire in August 2012. MBDA expects to 
redesign the current NABEC program with an anticipated start date of 
September 1, 2012.
    The Department's Tribal Consultation Official and Senior Advisor on 
Native American Affairs, Dee Alexander, will coordinate and schedule 
tribal consultations in conjunction with the MBDA Office of Business 
Development (OBD) regarding the business development services available 
to Native American organizations through MBDA. MBDA has designed the 
webinars, as part of the tribal consultation schedule, to allow tribal 
governments and organizations an opportunity to provide information 
into the planned redesign of the current NABEC program. MBDA intends 
that the new program will be more cohesive and compatible for 
collaboration among the funded Centers so the Centers can achieve their

and international deals aligned with President Obama's National Export 
Initiative (NEI).
