The PRC-Wide Entity In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily found that Fine Chemical, Changjie Chemical, North Food, and Embaiking Pharmaceutical did not demonstrate that they were entitled to a separate rate.3 Therefore, the Department preliminarily found that they should be considered part of the PRC-wide entity for this review. No party commented on the Department’s preliminary finding. For the final results the Department continues to find that these companies should be considered part of the PRCwide entity for this review. Third-Country Exporters In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily found that because Escalade, High Trans Corporation, Seicheng Chemical, Yuan Shan, Sin-Ho Trading, Long Hwang Chemicals, and Sun Disc are thirdcountry exporters located outside of the PRC, and they do not have individual exporter rates, their entries of subject merchandise should be assessed at the rate applicable to their PRC suppliers. No party commented on the Department’s preliminary finding. For these final results, the Department continues to find that their entries of subject merchandise should be assessed at the rate applicable to their PRC suppliers. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Assessment Rates For all shipments of the subject merchandise by the PRC-wide entity entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the POR we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties at the ad valorem PRC-wide entity rate of 329.94 percent.4 For all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, we will instruct CBP to assess the rate applicable to the PRC exporter(s) that supplied that non-PRC exporter.

Notifications 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 this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
