SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Subsequent to completion of its new shipper review under the 
antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the PRC, Hejia challenged 
certain aspects of the Department's Final Results at the CIT. On 
January 14, 2011 the Department filed its First Remand Results.\7\ On 
September 7, 2011, the CIT affirmed, in part, the First Remand Results 
and remanded the weighted-average methodology used by the Department to 
determine the surrogate value (SV) for the single-clove raw garlic 
input.\8\ On December 9, 2011, the Department issued its Second Remand 
Results under protest, wherein we removed a sales offer of Nepalese 
origin and thereafter used a simple average methodology to determine 
the SV for the single-clove raw garlic input. As a result, we 
calculated a revised weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent 
for Hejia.

Pursuant to Court Order, CIT Court No. 09-00471 (January 14, 2011) 
(First Remand Results).
    \8\ See Hejia Remand Order 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Timken Notice

    In its decision in Timken, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the 
CAFC has held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act), 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.\9\ The CIT's June 11, 2012, judgment 
sustaining the Second Remand Results constitutes a final decision of 
that court that is not in harmony with the Final Results. 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Timken, 893 F.2d at 341.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amended Final Results

    Because there is now a final court decision with respect to Hejia, 
we are amending the Final Results with respect to the margin for Hejia. 
The revised dumping margin is as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                              Weighted-

                          Exporter                              margin
                                                              (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Jinxiang Hejia Co., Ltd....................................        0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the Final Results, Hejia was assigned a rate of 15.37 percent. 
Pursuant to court order, Hejia's revised margin for the period November 
1, 2007, through June 9, 2008, is 0.00 percent. Accordingly, if 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 by 
Hejia during the POR at 0.00 percent. Additionally, because Hejia has 
not been subject to an administrative proceeding since its November 1, 
2007, through June 9, 2008 new shipper review, Hejia's cash deposit 
rate will be 0.00 percent, effective as of June 21, 2012 (i.e., 10 days 
after the issuance of the CIT's ruling).
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
516A(e)(1), 751(a)(1), and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: June 21, 2012.
