AGENCY: On June 4, 2012, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the first administrative review of the antidumping duty order on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge (narrow woven ribbons) from Taiwan. The period of review (POR) is September 1, 2010, through August 31, 2011. Based on our analysis of the comments received we have made no changes to the dumping margin assigned to Hubschercorp, the sole respondent in this administrative review. Therefore, the final results do not differ from the preliminary results. The final dumping margin for Hubschercorp is listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ SUMMARY: Effective Date: December 6, 2012.

On June 4, 2012, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of administrative review of the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:42 Dec 05, 2012 Jkt 229001 antidumping duty order on narrow woven ribbons from Taiwan.1 In July 2012, we received a case brief from Hubschercorp (the respondent) and a rebuttal brief from Berwick Offray LLC and its wholly-owned subsidiary Lion Ribbon Company, Inc. (collectively, the petitioner). In September 2012, the Department held a public hearing at the request of Hubschercorp. Also in September 2012, the Department extended the deadline for these final results until December 1, 2012. As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from October 29, through October 30, 2012. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by two days. The revised deadline for the final results of this administrative review is now December 3, 2012.2 The Department has conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The scope of the order covers narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 5806.32.1020; 5806.32.1030; 5806.32.1050 and 5806.32.1060.

See Preliminary Results, 77 FR at 32940.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This review covers one exporter, Hubschercorp. On June 4, 2012, the 
Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on narrow woven 
ribbons from Taiwan.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Narrow Woven Ribbons With Woven Selvedge From Taiwan: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 
32938 (June 4, 2012) (Preliminary Results).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In July 2012, we received a case brief from Hubschercorp (the 
respondent) and a rebuttal brief from Berwick Offray LLC and its 
wholly-owned subsidiary Lion Ribbon Company, Inc. (collectively, the 
petitioner). In September 2012, the Department held a public hearing at 
the request of Hubschercorp.
    Also in September 2012, the Department extended the deadline for 
these final results until December 1, 2012. As explained in the 
memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the 
Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the 
duration of the closure of the Federal Government from October 29, 
through October 30, 2012. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the 
proceeding have been extended by two days. The revised deadline for the 
final results of this administrative review is now December 3, 2012.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Memorandum to the Record from Paul Piquado, Assistant 
Secretary for Import Administration, regarding ``Tolling of 
Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure 
During Hurricane Sandy,'' dated October 31, 2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department has conducted this administrative review in 
accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act).

Scope of the Order

    The scope of the order covers narrow woven ribbons with woven 
selvedge. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 5806.32.1020; 
5806.32.1030; 5806.32.1050 and 5806.32.1060. Subject merchandise also 
may enter under subheadings 5806.31.00; 5806.32.20; 5806.39.20; 
5806.39.30; 5808.90.00; 5810.91.00; 5810.99.90; 5903.90.10; 5903.90.25; 
5907.00.60; and 5907.00.80 and under statistical categories 
5806.32.1080; 5810.92.9080; 5903.90.3090; and 6307.90.9889. Although 
the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the written product description, available in Narrow Woven Ribbons With 
Woven Selvedge From Taiwan and the People's Republic of China: Amended 
Antidumping Duty Orders, 75 FR 56982 (September 17, 2010), remains 
dispositive.

Period of Review

    The POR is September 1, 2010, through August 31, 2011.

Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Facts Available (AFA)

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that, due to 
Hubschercorp's lack of cooperation in the review, in accordance with 
section 776(a)(2)(A) of the Act, the use of facts available with an 
adverse inference was appropriate as the basis for the dumping margin 
for Hubschercorp. See Preliminary Results, 77 FR at 32940. Having 
considered the arguments raised by the parties in the case and rebuttal 
briefs, we continue to find that the application of AFA is warranted, 
and have assigned to Hubschercorp a dumping margin of 137.20 percent. 
See the Issues and Decision Memorandum accompanying these final 
results.

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in 
this administrative review are listed in the Appendix to this notice

manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in 
the LTFV investigation for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 4.37 percent, the all-others rate made effective by the

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 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 double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
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 written 
notification of return/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 of review in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
