TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Assessment 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 exporter/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 against the entered quantity of the subject merchandise. Where an importer- (or customer) specific assessment rate is de minimis under 19 CFR 351.106(c) (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. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of these reviews. 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the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Feili, because the rate is zero, no cash 6 See deposit will be required; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 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 PRC-wide rate established in the final results of this review (i.e., 70.71 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, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Interested Parties This notice 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 the review period. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.402(f)(3), failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO as explained in the administrative protective order itself. 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This notice of the final results of these reviews is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: June 27, 2012.

SUMMARY: On December 27, 2011, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of a changed circumstances review (‘‘CCR’’) of the antidumping duty order on aluminum extrusions from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) in order to determine whether Guangdong Zhongya Aluminum Company Limited (‘‘Guangdong Zhongya’’) is the successor-in-interest to Zhaoqing New Zhongya Aluminum Co., Ltd. (‘‘New Zhongya’’). We have preliminarily determined that Guangdong Zhongya is the successor-in-interest to New Zhongya for the purpose of determining antidumping duty liability. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: July 5, 2012. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Eve Wang, AD/CVD Operations, Office 8, AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39683 Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 202–482–6231. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background New Zhongya, a producer of aluminum extrusions, participated in the antidumping duty investigation of aluminum extrusions from the PRC. The Department issued its final determination for this investigation on April 4, 2011.1 As a result of that final determination, New Zhongya’s weighted-average dumping margin is 33.28 percent.2 The antidumping duty order was issued on May 26, 2011.3 On November 7, 2011, New Zhongya requested a changed circumstances review claiming that it had undergone a name change to Guangdong Zhongya Aluminum Company Limited.4 New Zhongya requested that the antidumping duty rate, which was assigned to New Zhongya and was in effect before the date of the name change (i.e., August 16, 2011), continue under the new name. New Zhongya’s request, stating that it underwent no changes other than the change in the name, was accompanied by supporting documents from Chinese government authorities,5 recognizing and approving the name change. Specifically, New Zhongya stated that no changes were made in personnel, management, ownership, facilities, customers, suppliers, etc. In response to this request, on December 27, 2011, the Department initiated a CCR, and on January 27, 2012, the Department issued a questionnaire to New Zhongya. New Zhongya filed its questionnaire response on February 24, 2012. Its submission included organizational charts, employment contracts, board meeting minutes, monthly income statements 1 See Aluminum Extrusions From the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 76 FR 18524 (April 4, 2011); see also Aluminum Extrusions From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Correction to the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 76 FR 20627 (April 13, 2011). 2 Id. 3 See Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order, 76 FR 30650 (May 26, 2011). 4 See Letter from New Zhongya to the Department, ‘‘Extruded Aluminum from China’’ (request for Changed Circumstances Review), dated November 7, 2011. 5 These Chinese government authorities include the Bureau of Foreign Trade & Economic Cooperation of High and New Technology Industrial Development Zone of Zhaoqing and the Administration Bureau for Industry and Commerce of Zhaoqing City.
