Sodium hexametaphosphate is typically sold as a white powder or granule (crushed) and may also be sold in the form of sheets (glass) or as a liquid solution. It is imported under heading 2835.39.5000, HTSUS. It may also be imported as a blend or mixture under heading 3824.90.3900, HTSUS. The American Chemical Society, Chemical Abstract Service (‘‘CAS’’) has assigned the name ‘‘Polyphosphoric Acid, Sodium Salt’’ to sodium hexametaphosphate. The CAS registry number is 68915–31–1. However, sodium hexametaphosphate is commonly identified by CAS No. 10124–56–8 in the market. For purposes of the review, the narrative description is dispositive, not the tariff heading, CAS registry number or CAS name. The product covered by this review includes sodium hexametaphosphate in all grades, whether food grade or technical grade. The product covered by this review includes sodium hexametaphosphate without regard to chain length i.e., whether regular or long chain. The product covered by this review includes sodium hexametaphosphate without regard to physical form, whether glass, sheet, crushed, granule, powder, fines, or other form, and whether or not in solution. However, the product covered by this review does not include sodium hexametaphosphate when imported in a blend with other materials in which the sodium hexametaphosphate accounts for less than 50 percent by volume of the finished product. erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with Separate Rates Determination In our Preliminary Results, we determined that Xingfa met the criteria for separate rate status. We have not received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this preliminary determination. Therefore, the Department continues to find that Xingfa has met the criteria for a separate rate. Final Results of Review The dumping margin for the POR is as follows: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:00 Sep 26, 2012 Jkt 226001 Exporter Margin (percent) Hubei Xingfa Chemical Group Co., Ltd .................. 91.23 PRC exporters that supplied that nonPRC exporter.

Assessment Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. Pursuant to section 351.212(b)(1) of the Department’s regulations, we will calculate importerspecific (or customer) ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of the dumping margins calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales. In accordance with section 351.106(c)(2) of the Department’s regulations, we will instruct CBP to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, all entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis. 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 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 the exporter listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the final results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, a zero cash deposit rate will be required for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have a separate rate, 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 of 188.05 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 PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under section 351.402(f) of the Department’s regulations 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 order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with section 351.305 of the Department’s regulations, 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.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to this review is sodium hexametaphosphate. 
Sodium hexametaphosphate is a water-soluble polyphosphate glass that 
consists of a distribution of polyphosphate chain lengths. It is a 
collection of sodium polyphosphate polymers built on repeating 
NaPO3 units. Sodium hexametaphosphate has a 
P2O5 content from 60 to 71 percent.

[[Page 59376]]

Alternate names for sodium hexametaphosphate include the following: 
Calgon; Calgon S; Glassy Sodium Phosphate; Sodium Polyphosphate, 
Glassy; Metaphosphoric Acid; Sodium Salt; Sodium Acid Metaphosphate; 
Graham's Salt; Sodium Hex; Polyphosphoric Acid, Sodium Salt; Glass H; 
Hexaphos; Sodaphos; Vitrafos; and BAC-N-FOS. Sodium hexametaphosphate 
is typically sold as a white powder or granule (crushed) and may also 
be sold in the form of sheets (glass) or as a liquid solution. It is 
imported under heading 2835.39.5000, HTSUS. It may also be imported as 
a blend or mixture under heading 3824.90.3900, HTSUS. The American 
Chemical Society, Chemical Abstract Service (``CAS'') has assigned the 
name ``Polyphosphoric Acid, Sodium Salt'' to sodium hexametaphosphate. 
The CAS registry number is 68915-31-1. However, sodium 
hexametaphosphate is commonly identified by CAS No. 10124-56-8 in the 
market. For purposes of the review, the narrative description is 
dispositive, not the tariff heading, CAS registry number or CAS name.
    The product covered by this review includes sodium 
hexametaphosphate in all grades, whether food grade or technical grade. 
The product covered by this review includes sodium hexametaphosphate 
without regard to chain length i.e., whether regular or long chain. The 
product covered by this review includes sodium hexametaphosphate 
without regard to physical form, whether glass, sheet, crushed, 
granule, powder, fines, or other form, and whether or not in solution.
    However, the product covered by this review does not include sodium 
hexametaphosphate when imported in a blend with other materials in 
which the sodium hexametaphosphate accounts for less than 50 percent by 
volume of the finished product.

Separate Rates Determination

    In our Preliminary Results, we determined that Xingfa met the 
criteria for separate rate status. We have not received any information 
since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for 
reconsidering this preliminary determination. Therefore, the Department 
continues to find that Xingfa has met the criteria for a separate rate.

Final Results of Review

    The dumping margin for the POR is as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                              Margin
                        Exporter                            (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hubei Xingfa Chemical Group Co., Ltd...................           91.23
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department will disclose calculations performed for these final 
results to the parties within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice, in accordance with section 351.224(b) of the Department's 
regulations.

Assessment

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends 
to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of review. Pursuant to section 
351.212(b)(1) of the Department's regulations, we will calculate 
importer-specific (or customer) ad valorem duty assessment rates based 
on the ratio of the total amount of the dumping margins calculated for 
the examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales. In 
accordance with section 351.106(c)(2) of the Department's regulations, 
we will instruct CBP to liquidate, without regard to antidumping 
duties, all entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the 
importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis.

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 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 the exporter 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the 
final results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, 
i.e., less than 0.5 percent, a zero cash deposit rate will be required 
for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and 
non-PRC exporters not listed above that have a separate rate, 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 of 188.05 
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. The deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under section 351.402(f) of the Department's regulations 
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.
