E:\FR\FM\18MRN1.SGM 18MRN1 16652 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 52 / Monday, March 18, 2013 / Notices Final Partial Rescission In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily rescinded the review with respect to 12 companies.15 These companies reported that they had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. As we stated in the Preliminary Results, our examination of shipment data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) confirmed that there were no entries of subject merchandise made by these companies during the POR.16 Subsequent to the Preliminary Results, the Department did not receive any comments or information which indicated that these twelve companies made sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we are rescinding the administrative review with respect to these 12 companies. 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 certain revisions to the margin calculations for Stanley and Hongli. For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1, we have now selected Thailand as the primary surrogate country.17 18 pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Non-Market Economy Country The PRC has been treated as a nonmarket economy (‘‘NME’’) in every proceeding conducted by the Department.

Separate Rates In our Preliminary Results, we determined that nineteen companies. 19 including Stanley and Hongli, met the criteria for separate rate status.20 We have not received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsideration of these determinations. Therefore, the Department continues to find that the companies listed above meet the criteria for a separate rate. Rate for Non-Selected Companies In the Preliminary Results, and consistent with the Department’s practice,21 we assigned the separate-rate companies a rate calculated for the mandatory respondents whose rates were not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.22 For the final results, we continue to find this approach to be consistent with the intent of section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act and our use of section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act as guidance when we establish the rate for respondents not examined individually in an administrative review. PRC-Wide Rate and PRC-Wide Entity For the PRC-Wide Entity, the Department used the PRC-wide rate of 118.04 percent from the most recently completed administrative review of this 19 These companies include: Cana (Tianjin) Hardware Industrial Co., Ltd.; Shanghai Curvet Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; Huanghua Jinhai Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; Shanxi Tianli Industries Co., Ltd.; Shanghai Jade Shuttle Hardware Tools Co., Ltd.; Shandong Dinglong Import & Export Co., Ltd.; Tianjin Jinchi Metal Products Co., Ltd.; Huanghua Xionghua Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; Tianjin Zonglian Metals Ware Co., Ltd.; Shanghai Yueda Nails Industry Co., Ltd.; Hebei Cangzhou New Century Foreign Trade Co., Ltd.; Zhaoqing Harvest Nails Co., Ltd.; Mingguang Abundant Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; Nanjing Yuechang Hardware Co., Ltd.; S-Mart (Tianjin) Technology Development Co.

PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 antidumping order.23 Because this rate is the same as the PRC-Wide rate from previous reviews in this proceeding and nothing on the record of the instant review calls into question the reliability of the PRC-Wide rate, we find it appropriate to continue to apply the PRC-Wide rate of 118.04 percent.24 In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that those companies which did not demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate are properly considered part of the PRCWide Entity. Since the Preliminary Results, none of the companies which did not file separate-rate applications or certifications submitted comments regarding these findings. Therefore, we continue to treat these entities as part of the PRC-Wide Entity. The following companies did not apply for separate rates and are thus considered to be part of the PRC-Wide Entity: (1) Aironware (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (2) Beijing Hong Sheng Metal Products Co., Ltd.

Assessment Rates The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of these final results of this review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to this review. In these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., on the basis of monthly average-to-average comparisons using only the transactions associated with that importer with offsets being provided for non-dumped comparisons.26 Where the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we calculate importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all 26 See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8103 (February 14, 2012) (‘‘Final Modifications for Reviews’’).

Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, we will apply the assessment rate to the entered value of the importers’/ customers’ entries during the POR, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where we do not have entered values for all U.S. sales to a particular importer/customer, we calculate a perunit assessment rate by aggregating the antidumping duties due for all U.S. sales to that importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total quantity sold to that importer (or customer).27 To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered value. Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 27 See PO 00000 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate. Finally, for those companies for which this review has been rescinded, the Department intends to assess antidumping duties 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)(2). 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 28 See E:\FR\FM\18MRN1.SGM 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 18MRN1 16654 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 52 / Monday, March 18, 2013 / Notices consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 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 118.04 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 nonPRC exporter. The deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. 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). Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 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. 15:16 Mar 15, 2013 Jkt 229001 Dated: March 5, 2013.

Final Partial Rescission

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily rescinded 
the review with respect to 12 companies.\15\ These companies reported 
that they had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR. As we stated in the Preliminary Results, our 
examination of shipment data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') confirmed that there were no entries of subject merchandise 
made by these companies during the POR.\16\ Subsequent to the 
Preliminary Results, the Department did not receive any comments or 
information which indicated that these twelve companies made sales of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we are rescinding the administrative 
review with respect to these 12 companies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ These companies include: (1) Jining Huarong Hardware 
Products Co., Ltd.; (2) Chiieh Yung Metal Ind. Corp.; (3) CYM 
(Nanjing) Nail Manufacture Co., Ltd.; (4) Qidong Liang Chyuan Metal 
Industry Co., Ltd.; (5) Certified Products International Inc. 
(``CPI''); (6) Besco Machinery Industry (Zhejiang) Co., Ltd.; (7) 
China Staple Enterprise (Tianjin) Co., Ltd.; (8) Zhejiang Gem-Chun 
Hardware Accessory Co., Ltd.; (9) PT Enterprise Inc.; (10) Shanxi 
Yuci Broad Wire Products Co., Ltd.; (11) Hengshui Mingyao Hardware & 
Mesh Products Co., Ltd. (``Hengshui Mingyao''); and, (12) Union 
Enterprise (Kunshan) Co., Ltd, collectively ``No Shipment 
Respondents.''
    \16\ See Preliminary Results, 77 FR at 53846.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 
certain revisions to the margin calculations for Stanley and Hongli. 
For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum at 
Comment 1, we have now selected Thailand as the primary surrogate 
country.17 18

Non-Market Economy Country

    The PRC has been treated as a non-market economy (``NME'') in every 
proceeding conducted by the Department. In accordance with section 
771(18)(C)(i) of the Act, any determination that a foreign country is 
an NME shall remain in effect until revoked by the administering 
authority. The Department has not revoked the PRC's status as an NME 
and, accordingly, applied the NME methodology.

Separate Rates

    In our Preliminary Results, we determined that nineteen companies. 
\19\ including Stanley and Hongli, met the criteria for separate rate 
status.\20\ We have not received any information since the issuance of 
the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsideration of 
these determinations. Therefore, the Department continues to find that 
the companies listed above meet the criteria for a separate rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ These companies include: Cana (Tianjin) Hardware Industrial 
Co., Ltd.; Shanghai Curvet Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; Huanghua 
Jinhai Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; Shanxi Tianli Industries Co., 
Ltd.; Shanghai Jade Shuttle Hardware Tools Co., Ltd.; Shandong 
Dinglong Import & Export Co., Ltd.; Tianjin Jinchi Metal Products 
Co., Ltd.; Huanghua Xionghua Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; Tianjin 
Zonglian Metals Ware Co., Ltd.; Shanghai Yueda Nails Industry Co., 
Ltd.; Hebei Cangzhou New Century Foreign Trade Co., Ltd.; Zhaoqing 
Harvest Nails Co., Ltd.; Mingguang Abundant Hardware Products Co., 
Ltd.; Nanjing Yuechang Hardware Co., Ltd.; S-Mart (Tianjin) 
Technology Development Co. Ltd.; SDC International Australia Pty., 
Ltd.; Shanxi Hairui Trade Co., Ltd.; Guangdong Foreign Trade Import 
& Export Corporation; and Qingdao D&L Group Ltd.
    \20\ See Preliminary Results, 77 FR at 53845.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rate for Non-Selected Companies

    In the Preliminary Results, and consistent with the Department's 
practice,\21\ we assigned the separate-rate companies a rate calculated 
for the mandatory respondents whose rates were not zero, de minimis, or 
based entirely on facts available.\22\ For the final results, we 
continue to find this approach to be consistent with the intent of 
section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act and our use of section 735(c)(5)(A) of 
the Act as guidance when we establish the rate for respondents not 
examined individually in an administrative review.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

PRC-Wide Rate and PRC-Wide Entity

    For the PRC-Wide Entity, the Department used the PRC-wide rate of 
118.04 percent from the most recently completed administrative review 
of this antidumping order.\23\ Because this rate is the same as the 
PRC-Wide rate from previous reviews in this proceeding and nothing on 
the record of the instant review calls into question the reliability of 
the PRC-Wide rate, we find it appropriate to continue to apply the PRC-
Wide rate of 118.04 percent.\24\

China: Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of Second 
Administrative Review, 77 FR 12556 (March 1, 2012).

Shrimp From the People's Republic of China: Final Results and 
Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 
51940, 51942 (August 19, 2011) (where the Department used the PRC-
wide rate from the previous review).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that those 
companies which did not demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate are 
properly considered part of the PRC-Wide Entity. Since the Preliminary 
Results, none of the companies which did not file separate-rate 
applications or certifications submitted comments regarding these 
findings. Therefore, we continue to treat these entities as part of the 
PRC-Wide Entity. The following companies did not apply for separate 
rates and are thus considered to be part of the PRC-Wide Entity:

(1) Aironware (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.
(2) Beijing Hong Sheng Metal Products Co., Ltd.
(3) Beijing Hongsheng Metal Products Co., Ltd.
(4) Dagang Zhitong Metal Products Co., Ltd.
(5) Faithful Engineering Products Co., Ltd.
(6) Hebei Minmetals Co., Ltd.\25\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \25\ Hebei, submitted an untimely no shipment certification that 
the Department has rejected. Therefore, this company is considered 
to be part of the PRC-Wide Entity. See Preliminary Results, 77 FR at 
53846. See also letter to Hebei, ``Certain Steel Nails from the 
People's Republic of China (``PRC''): Rejection of Untimely 
Certification of No Shipments,'' dated July 16, 2012.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the publication date of these final results of this review. In 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or 
customer-) specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to 
this review. In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Final Modification for 
Reviews, i.e., on the basis of monthly average-to-average comparisons 
using only the transactions associated with that importer with offsets 
being provided for non-dumped comparisons.\26\ Where the respondent has 
reported reliable entered values, we calculate importer- (or customer-) 
specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated 
for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this 
amount by the total entered value of the sales to each importer (or 
customer). Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate 
is greater than de minimis, we will apply the assessment rate to the 
entered value of the importers'/customers' entries during the POR, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \26\ See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8103 (February 14, 2012) 
(``Final Modifications for Reviews'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Where we do not have entered values for all U.S. sales to a 
particular importer/customer, we calculate a per-unit assessment rate 
by aggregating the antidumping duties due for all U.S. sales to that 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total quantity 
sold to that importer (or customer).\27\ To determine whether the duty 
assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set 
forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculated importer- (or customer-) 
specific ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered value. Where 
an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de 
minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.\28\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \27\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \28\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies receiving a separate rate that were not selected 
for individual review, we will assign an assessment rate based on the 
rate we calculated for the mandatory respondent whose rate was not de 
minimis, as discussed above. We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate 
entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity 
at the PRC-wide rate. Finally, for those companies for which this 
review has been rescinded, the Department intends to assess antidumping 
duties 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)(2).

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

[[Page 16654]]

consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 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 118.04 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.

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).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 Order

    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 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 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: March 5, 2013.
