The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by AMTP for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

subheading 8481.80.1095, and also have been classified under subheading 
8415.90.80.85, of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(``HTSUS''). It is possible for frontseating service valves to be 
manufactured out of primary materials other than copper and brass, in 
which case they would be classified under HTSUS subheadings 
8481.80.3040, 8481.80.3090, or 8481.80.5090. In addition, if 
unassembled or incomplete frontseating service valves are imported, the 
various parts or components would be classified under HTSUS subheadings 
8481.90.1000, 8481.90.3000, or 8481.90.5000. The HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, but the written 
description of the scope of this order, available in Antidumping Duty 
Order: Frontseating Service Valves from the People's Republic of China, 
74 FR 19196 (April 28, 2009), remains dispositive.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on an analysis of the comments received, the Department has 
made the following changes in the margin calculation.
     We valued the surrogate value for brass scrap using the 
HTS number for brass bar and rod. See Comment 2 of the accompanying 
Issues and Decision Memorandum.
     The Department recalculated the surrogate financial ratios 
using the financial statements of FVC Philippines, Inc. and Makati 
Foundry, Inc. See Comment 4 of the accompanying Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.
     We revised Sanhua's reported scrap adjustment to ensure 
that the reported raw materials account fully for the reported weight 
of each FSV model sold. See Comment 7 of the accompanying Issues and 
Decision Memorandum.

Final Results Margin

    We determine the weighted-average dumping margins for the period 
April 1, 2010, through March 31, 2011, to be:

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
Amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 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. Where 
the weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter or producer is 
determined to be zero or de minimis, no assessment rates will be 
calculated and the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate all 
imports from the exporter or producer without regard to antidumping 
duties. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 
15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review.

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 DunAn and 
Sanhua, the cash deposit rate will be the rate identified in the Final 
Results Margin section, as listed above; (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 continue to 
be the PRC-wide rate of 55.62 percent; \13\ and (4) for all non-PRC

[[Page 67336]]

exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. The deposit requirements 
shall remain in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ This rate was established in the final results of the 
original investigation. See Frontseating Service Valves from the 
People's Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less 
Than Fair Value and Final Negative Determination of Critical 
Circumstances, 74 FR 10886 (March 13, 2009).

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), 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.

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
    We are issuing and publishing the final results and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 2, 2012.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
