On August 15, 2012, the Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review for the following three companies: (1) Chung Hung Steel Corp.; (2) Kao Hsing Chang Iron & Steel Corp. (also known as Kao Hsiung Chang Iron & Steel Corp.); and (3) Tension Steel Industries Co. Ltd. Partial Rescission The applicable regulation, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), states that if a party that requested an administrative review withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, the Secretary will rescind the review. The Petitioner withdrew its review request with respect to three companies within the 90-day deadline, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Therefore, in accordance with section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations, we are rescinding this review with respect to the following three companies: (1) Chung Hung Steel Corp.; (2) Kao Hsing Chang Iron & Steel Corp.; and (3) Tension Steel Industries Co. Ltd. This review will continue with respect to Shin Yang Steel Co., Ltd. The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from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)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. 19:10 Sep 10, 2012 Dated: September 4, 2012.

The certain preserved mushrooms covered under this order are the species Agaricus bisporus and Agaricus bitorquis. ‘‘Certain Preserved Mushrooms’’ refers to mushrooms that have been prepared or preserved by cleaning, blanching, and sometimes slicing or cutting. These mushrooms are then packed and heated in containers including, but not limited to, cans or glass jars in a suitable liquid medium, including, but not limited to, water, brine, butter or butter sauce. Certain preserved mushrooms may be imported whole, sliced, diced, or as stems and pieces. Included within the scope of this order are ‘‘brined’’ mushrooms, which are presalted and packed in a heavy salt solution to provisionally preserve them for further processing.11 Excluded from the scope of this order are the following: (1) All other species of mushroom, including straw mushrooms; (2) all fresh and chilled mushrooms, including ‘‘refrigerated’’ or 11 On June 19, 2000, the Department affirmed that ‘‘marinated,’’ ‘‘acidified,’’ or ‘‘pickled’’ mushrooms containing less than 0.5 percent acetic acid are within the scope of the antidumping duty order. See Recommendation Memorandum-Final Ruling of Request by Tak Fat, et al. for Exclusion of Certain Marinated, Acidified Mushrooms from the Scope of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated June 19, 2000. On February 9, 2005, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit upheld this decision. See Tak Fat v. United States, 396 F.3d 1378 (Fed. Cir. 2005).

Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and Customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we have made the following revisions to certain surrogate values (SVs) and the margin calculation for Blue Field and Xingda. (1) We revised our calculation of Blue Field’s land rent.12 (2) For Blue Field, we revised our calculation of the surrogate value for coal to include bituminous coal and corrected a conversion error in the calculation of that surrogate value.13 (3) We corrected two calculation errors associated with the surrogate value of water for both Blue Field and Xingda.14 (4) For Blue Field, we corrected the jar weight for one model.15 Separate Rates Determination In the Preliminary Results, we found that (1) Ayecue (Liaocheng) Foodstuff Co., Ltd. (Ayecue), (2) Fujian Golden Banyan Foodstuffs Industrial Co., Ltd. (Golden Banyan), and (3) Shandong Jiufa demonstrated their eligibility for separate rates.16 We received no comments from interested parties on this finding. Therefore, in these final results, we continue to find that Ayecue, Golden Banyan, and Shandong Jiufa demonstrated an absence of government of control, both in law and in fact, with 12 See Memorandum From Michael J. Heaney to the File, Re Final Analysis for Blue Filed (Sichuan) Food Industrial Co., Ltd.

Thus, we have determined that Ayecue, Golden Banyan, and Shandong Jiufa are eligible to receive a separate rate. Consistent with our own practice and section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), respondents other than mandatory respondents have received the weighted-average of the margins calculated for those companies selected for individual review (i.e., mandatory respondents), excluding zero or de minimis margins or margins based entirely on facts available. Final Results of the Review The Department has determined that the following dumping margins exist for the period February 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011: Exporter Blue Field .............................. Xingda ................................... Ayecue .................................. Golden Banyan ..................... Shandong Jiufa ..................... PRC-wide rate* .....................

Assessment Rates The Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.17 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated exporter/ importer-specific (or customer-specific) assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. Blue Field and Xingda did not report entered values for their U.S. sales. Accordingly, we calculated a per-unit assessment rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the estimated entered value that we calculated for those transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting perunit rate against the calculated estimate of entered value of the subject merchandise. For all shipments of subject merchandise by the PRC-wide entity entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the POR, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping 17 See section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act; 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

this review are addressed in the memorandum entitled, ``Issues and 
Decision Memorandum for the Final Results in the Administrative Review 
of Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People's

[[Page 55809]]

Republic of China,'' which is dated concurrently with and adopted by 
this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum). A list of the issues 
raised, and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, 
is attached to this notice as an appendix. The Issues and Decision 
Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via 
Import Administration's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized 
Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is available to 
registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central 
Records Unit (CRU), room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are certain preserved mushrooms, 
whether imported whole, sliced, diced, or as stems and pieces. The 
certain preserved mushrooms covered under this order are the species 
Agaricus bisporus and Agaricus bitorquis. ``Certain Preserved 
Mushrooms'' refers to mushrooms that have been prepared or preserved by 
cleaning, blanching, and sometimes slicing or cutting. These mushrooms 
are then packed and heated in containers including, but not limited to, 
cans or glass jars in a suitable liquid medium, including, but not 
limited to, water, brine, butter or butter sauce. Certain preserved 
mushrooms may be imported whole, sliced, diced, or as stems and pieces. 
Included within the scope of this order are ``brined'' mushrooms, which 
are presalted and packed in a heavy salt solution to provisionally 
preserve them for further processing.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ On June 19, 2000, the Department affirmed that 
``marinated,'' ``acidified,'' or ``pickled'' mushrooms containing 
less than 0.5 percent acetic acid are within the scope of the 
antidumping duty order. See Recommendation Memorandum-Final Ruling 
of Request by Tak Fat, et al. for Exclusion of Certain Marinated, 
Acidified Mushrooms from the Scope of the Antidumping Duty Order on 
Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People's Republic of China,'' 
dated June 19, 2000. On February 9, 2005, the United States Court of 
Appeals for the Federal Circuit upheld this decision. See Tak Fat v. 
United States, 396 F.3d 1378 (Fed. Cir. 2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Excluded from the scope of this order are the following: (1) All 
other species of mushroom, including straw mushrooms; (2) all fresh and 
chilled mushrooms, including ``refrigerated'' or ``quick blanched 
mushrooms;'' (3) dried mushrooms; (4) frozen mushrooms; and (5) 
``marinated,'' ``acidified,'' or ``pickled'' mushrooms, which are 
prepared or preserved by means of vinegar or acetic acid, but may 
contain oil or other additives.
    The merchandise subject to this order is classifiable under 
subheadings: 2003.10.0127, 2003.10.0131, 2003.10.0137, 2003.10.0143, 
2003.10.0147, 2003.10.0153, and 0711.51.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and Customs purposes, the written 
description of the scope of this order is dispositive.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we have made the 
following revisions to certain surrogate values (SVs) and the margin 
calculation for Blue Field and Xingda.
    (1) We revised our calculation of Blue Field's land rent.\12\

Analysis for Blue Filed (Sichuan) Food Industrial Co., Ltd. (Blue 
Field) Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People's Republic of 
China dated September 4, 2012, (Blue Field Final Analysis 
Memorandum) at 1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (2) For Blue Field, we revised our calculation of the surrogate 
value for coal to include bituminous coal and corrected a conversion 
error in the calculation of that surrogate value.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Id. at 2.

    (3) We corrected two calculation errors associated with the 
surrogate value of water for both Blue Field and Xingda.\14\

Separate Rates Determination

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that (1) Ayecue (Liaocheng) 
Foodstuff Co., Ltd. (Ayecue), (2) Fujian Golden Banyan Foodstuffs 
Industrial Co., Ltd. (Golden Banyan), and (3) Shandong Jiufa 
demonstrated their eligibility for separate rates.\16\ We received no 
comments from interested parties on this finding. Therefore, in these 
final results, we continue to find that Ayecue, Golden Banyan, and 
Shandong Jiufa demonstrated an absence of government of control, both 
in law and in fact, with respect to these companies' exports of the 
subject merchandise. Thus, we have determined that Ayecue, Golden 
Banyan, and Shandong Jiufa are eligible to receive a separate rate. 
Consistent with our own practice and section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), respondents other than mandatory 
respondents have received the weighted-average of the margins 
calculated for those companies selected for individual review (i.e., 
mandatory respondents), excluding zero or de minimis margins or margins 
based entirely on facts available.

Assessment Rates

    The Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries.\17\ The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of 
review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act; 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated exporter/
importer-specific (or customer-specific) assessment rates for 
merchandise subject to this review. Blue Field and Xingda did not 
report entered values for their U.S. sales. Accordingly, we calculated 
a per-unit assessment rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing 
the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the 
estimated entered value that we calculated for those transactions. For 
duty-assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to 
assess the resulting per-unit rate against the calculated estimate of 
entered value of the subject merchandise.
    For all shipments of subject merchandise by the PRC-wide entity 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the POR, 
we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping

[[Page 55810]]

duties at the ad valorem PRC-wide entity rate of 198.63 percent.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements, when imposed, will be 
effective upon publication of the final results of this review for all 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): 
(1) The cash-deposit rate for each of the reviewed companies that 
received a separate rate in this review will be the rate listed in the 
final results of this review (except that if the rate for a particular 
company is de minimis, i.e., less than 0.50 percent, no cash deposit 
will be required for that company); (2) for previously investigated 
companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific rate published for the most recent period of 
review; (3) if the exporter is a firm not covered in this review, a 
prior review, or the original less-than-fair-value investigation, but 
the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established 
for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will be the PRC-wide rate of 198.63 percent. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    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 Act.

    Dated: September 4, 2012.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
