The cash deposit rate for the Dongtai Peak will continue to be the rate established in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding.10 The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.

The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are natural honey, artificial 
honey containing more than 50 percent natural honey by weight, 
preparations of natural honey containing more than 50 percent natural 
honey by weight and flavored honey. The subject merchandise includes 
all grades and colors of honey whether in liquid, creamed, comb, cut 
comb, or chunk form, and whether packaged for retail or in bulk form.
    The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable 
under subheadings 0409.00.00, 1702.90.90, 2106.90.99, 0409.00.0010,

convenience and customs purposes, the Department's written description

Final Rescission of Administrative Review

    In the Preliminary Rescission, the Department preliminarily 
rescinded the administrative review of Dongtai Peak, whose POR sales 
the Department found to be not bona fide.\8\ The Department received 
comments with respect to our preliminary decision to rescind the 
review. The Department continues to find the sales made by Dongtai Peak 
during the POR to be not bona fide.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Preliminary Rescission; see also Memorandum to James C.

Review for Dongtai Peak Honey Industry Co., Ltd. (dated December 23, 
2011).
    \9\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty 
order on honey from the PRC for the period of December 1, 2009, through 
November 30, 2010. The cash deposit rate for the Dongtai Peak will 
continue to be the rate established in the most recently completed 
segment of this proceeding.\10\

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

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
Because the Department has not completed an administrative review, 
antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit 
of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or 
withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(2). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of 
APO materials 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.
    We are issuing and publishing this administrative review and notice 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
