VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:56 Nov 20, 2012 Jkt 229001 Protection (‘‘CBP’’) based on the final results of the review. As stated above, we did not receive any comments on our Preliminary Results nor did we receive information from CBP indicating that there were reviewable transactions from Baosteel during the POR. Therefore, we continue to determine that Baosteel had no reviewable transactions of subject merchandise during the POR. Consistent with our ‘‘automatic assessment’’ clarification, the Department will issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on our final results.4 PRC-Wide Entity In the Preliminary Results, the Department noted that Hunan Valin Xiangtan Iron & Steel (‘‘Hunan Valin’’) does not have a separate rate, and that it is therefore under review as part of the PRC-wide entity.5 Although Hunan Valin reported that it had no sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, the Department does not find that the PRC-wide entity, of which Hunan Valin is part, had no shipments during the POR. After issuing the Preliminary Results, the Department did not receive any comments from interested parties. Therefore, for these final results, in accordance with section 776(a) and (b) of the Act, and as explained in more detail in the Preliminary Results, the Department continues to find that because Angang Group International (‘‘Angang’’), as part of the PRC-wide entity, failed to submit any response to the Department’s questionnaire it is appropriate to rely on the facts otherwise available to determine a margin for the PRC-wide entity and to assign to the PRC-wide entity the highest-rate and the only rate ever determined for the PRC-wide entity on the record of this proceeding, i.e., 90.83%.6 Final Results of Review The weighted-average dumping margins for the POR are as follows: 4 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (‘‘Assessment Practice Refinement’’).

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases. See Assessment Practice Refinement. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate.8 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 by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) 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; (2) 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 90.83 percent; and (3) 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 nonPRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

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.

Cash Deposit Instructions Because Marsan, Birlik, Bellini and Istanbul Gida have de minimis countervailable subsidy rates, the Department will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation of entries, but to collect no cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties for the combination and companies described above on all shipments of the subject merchandise that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined 
to rescind the review with respect to Baosteel \2\ because it had 
reported and submitted timely-filed certifications that it had no sales 
of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.\3\ We 
stated, consistent with the recently announced refinement to its 
assessment practice in non-market economy (``NME'') cases, that the 
Department would not rescind the review in these circumstances but, 
rather, would complete the review with respect to Baosteel and issue 
appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') based on the final results of the review. As stated above, we 
did not receive any comments on our Preliminary Results nor did we 
receive information from CBP indicating that there were reviewable 
transactions from Baosteel during the POR. Therefore, we continue to 
determine that Baosteel had no reviewable transactions of subject 
merchandise during the POR. Consistent with our ``automatic 
assessment'' clarification, the Department will issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on our final results.\4\

PRC-Wide Entity

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department noted that Hunan Valin 
Xiangtan Iron & Steel (``Hunan Valin'') does not have a separate rate, 
and that it is therefore under review as part of the PRC-wide 
entity.\5\ Although Hunan Valin reported that it had no sales of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, the Department 
does not find that the PRC-wide entity, of which Hunan Valin is part, 
had no shipments during the POR. After issuing the Preliminary Results, 
the Department did not receive any comments from interested parties. 
Therefore, for these final results, in accordance with section 776(a) 
and (b) of the Act, and as explained in more detail in the Preliminary 
Results, the Department continues to find that because Angang Group 
International (``Angang''), as part of the PRC-wide entity, failed to 
submit any response to the Department's questionnaire it is appropriate 
to rely on the facts otherwise available to determine a margin for the 
PRC-wide entity and to assign to the PRC-wide entity the highest-rate 
and the only rate ever determined for the PRC-wide entity on the record 
of this proceeding, i.e., 90.83%.\6\

Assessment

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and 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. The 
Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment practice 
in NME cases. See Assessment Practice Refinement. Pursuant to this 
refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. 
sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during 
this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries 
at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an 
exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any 
suspended entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., 
at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate.\8\

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 by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) 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; (2) 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 90.83 percent; and (3) 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.

Notifications

    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

[[Page 69792]]

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.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to the 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely notification of the 
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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and this notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(4).

    Dated: November 13, 2012.
