VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:13 May 15, 2013 Jkt 229001 Background The Department published the Preliminary Results on November 8, 2012.2 Between December 5, 2012 and December 17, 2012, interested parties submitted surrogate value data for consideration in the final results. On January 4, 2013, M&B Metal Products Inc. (‘‘Petitioner’’), submitted a case brief.3 On January 9, 2013, Fabriclean Supply Inc. (‘‘Fabriclean’’), a U.S. importer and wholesaler, submitted a rebuttal brief.4 On January 14, 2013, the Department extended the final results to May 7, 2013.5 Scope of the Order The merchandise that is subject to the order is steel wire garment hangers. The products subject to the order are currently classified under U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 7326.20.0020, 7323.99.9060, and 7323.99.9080. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise as set forth in the order remains dispositive.6 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by interested parties in this review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.7 A list of the issues which parties raised is attached to this notice as an Appendix.

The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results There have been no changes since Preliminary Results. Non-Market Economy Country The PRC has been treated as a nonmarket economy (‘‘NME’’) in every proceeding conducted by the Department. In accordance with section 771(18)(C)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘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 the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that the companies that constitute the Shanghai Wells Group 8 were affiliated, would be treated as a single entity, and met the criteria for separate rate status.9 At that time, the Department also determined that the following companies failed to demonstrate their eligibility for a separate rate: Shangyu Baoxiang Metal Manufactured Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shangyu Baoxiang’’); Zhejiang Lucky Cloud Hanger Co., Ltd. (‘‘Lucky Hanger’’); Shaoxing Zhongbao Metal Manufactured Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shaoxing 8 The Department previously found that Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shanghai Wells’’), Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (‘‘HK Wells’’) and Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (USA) (‘‘Wells USA’’) are affiliated and that Shanghai Wells and HK Wells comprise a single entity (collectively, ‘‘Shanghai Wells Group’’). Because there were no changes in this review, we continue to find Shanghai Wells, HK Wells, and USA Wells are affiliated and that Shanghai Wells and HK Wells comprise a single entity.

(‘‘Shaoxing Shunji’’); Pu Jiang County Command Metal Products Co., Ltd (‘‘Pu Jiang’’); and Shaoxing Liangbao Metal Manufactured Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shaoxing Liangbao’’).10 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 only the Shanghai Wells Group satisfies the criteria for a separate rate and will be treated as a single entity. PRC-Wide Entity and the PRC-Wide Rate In the Preliminary Results, we determined that those companies which did not demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate are properly considered part of the PRC-Wide Entity.11 Since the Preliminary Results, none of the companies which did not file separaterate applications or certifications submitted comments regarding this finding. Therefore, we continue to treat these entities as part of the PRC-Wide Entity. In the Preliminary Results, the Department calculated the PRC-Wide Entity Rate using adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) because (1) the PRC-Wide Entity withheld requested information, failed to provide information in a timely manner and in the form requested, and significantly impeded this proceeding and (2) the PRC-Wide Entity failed to cooperate to the best of its ability.12 In so doing, and consistent with our practice, the Department relied upon the highest rate on the record of any segment of the proceeding—187.25 percent.13 The Department also corroborated that rate, consistent with section 776(c) of the Act.14 Since the Preliminary Results, no interested party has submitted any evidence or comments that challenge the Department’s calculation of the PRCWide Rate. Therefore, we will continue to apply a rate of 187.25 percent to the PRC-Wide Entity.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Species Covered in This Notice Sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka): endangered, naturally produced and artificially propagated Snake River. Background Section 9 of the ESA and Federal regulations prohibit the ‘‘taking’’ of a species listed as endangered or threatened. The term ‘‘take’’ is defined under the ESA to mean harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct. NMFS may issue permits to take listed species for any act otherwise prohibited by section 9 for scientific purposes or to enhance the propagation or survival of the affected species, under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA. NMFS regulations governing permits for threatened and endangered species are promulgated at 50 CFR 222.307. On May 15, 2012, NMFS received an application, including an HGMP, from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, a section 10(a)(1)(A) research/ enhancement permit for continued PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28805 operation of the Redfish Lake Sockeye Salmon Captive Propagation program. The proposed program would increase the abundance of the listed species through artificial propagation and to serve as a safety net to prevent extinction of the Snake River Sockeye Salmon Evolutionarily Significant Unit (ESU), which is listed as endangered under the ESA. The proposed program would maintain the Snake River sockeye salmon broodstock in captivity in several locations, largely at the Springfield Hatchery in eastern Idaho, collect and spawn adult sockeye salmon returning to the Snake River basin, rear juveniles, and release eggs, juveniles, and adult fish into upper Salmon River basin lakes. The proposed program would include best management practices to minimize adverse effects on the ESU. Best management practices would include the use of prudent fish husbandry practices and standard hatchery protocols to ensure health and survival of the program fish, selection of eggs and juveniles in a manner designed to represent to the greatest extent possible the entire genetic spectrum of the founding population, and the conduct of spawning ground surveys to estimate natural spawning escapement and to determine the effects of captivereared fish on spawner distribution and behavior. An environmental assessment was prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) by the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) for its funding of the Snake River sockeye salmon hatchery program, including modifications to the Springfield Hatchery. Because the BPA action is substantially the same as the actions addressed by the proposed ESA permit, because they are both administrative actions that allow IDFG to operate the Snake River sockeye salmon hatchery program consistent with the submitted HGMP and the Springfield Sockeye Hatchery Master Plan, NMFS proposes to adopt the BPA environmental assessment to comply with the NEPA. Authority This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS will evaluate the application, associated documents, and comments submitted thereon to determine whether the application meets the requirements of section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA. If it is determined that the requirements are met, a permit will be issued to IDFG for the purpose of carrying out the hatchery program. NMFS will publish a record of its final action in the Federal Register. NEPA requires Federal agencies to conduct an environmental analysis of E:\FR\FM\16MYN1.SGM 16MYN1

Administrative Review,'' dated concurrently with this notice 
(``Issues and Decision Memorandum'') and hereby adopted by this 
notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    There have been no changes since Preliminary Results.

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 Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``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 the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that the 
companies that constitute the Shanghai Wells Group \8\ were affiliated, 
would be treated as a single entity, and met the criteria for separate 
rate status.\9\ At that time, the Department also determined that the 
following companies failed to demonstrate their eligibility for a 
separate rate: Shangyu Baoxiang Metal Manufactured Co., Ltd. (``Shangyu 
Baoxiang''); Zhejiang Lucky Cloud Hanger Co., Ltd. (``Lucky Hanger''); 
Shaoxing Zhongbao Metal Manufactured Co., Ltd. (``Shaoxing

[[Page 28804]]

Zhongbao''); Shaoxing Shunji Metal Clotheshorse Co., Ltd. (``Shaoxing 
Shunji''); Pu Jiang County Command Metal Products Co., Ltd (``Pu 
Jiang''); and Shaoxing Liangbao Metal Manufactured Co., Ltd. 
(``Shaoxing Liangbao'').\10\ 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 only the Shanghai Wells Group satisfies the 
criteria for a separate rate and will be treated as a single entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The Department previously found that Shanghai Wells Hanger 
Co., Ltd. (``Shanghai Wells''), Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (``HK Wells'') 
and Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (USA) (``Wells USA'') are affiliated and 
that Shanghai Wells and HK Wells comprise a single entity 
(collectively, ``Shanghai Wells Group''). Because there were no 
changes in this review, we continue to find Shanghai Wells, HK 
Wells, and USA Wells are affiliated and that Shanghai Wells and HK 
Wells comprise a single entity. See Steel Wire Garment Hangers From 
the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Preliminary

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

PRC-Wide Entity and the PRC-Wide Rate

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that those companies 
which did not demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate are properly 
considered part of the PRC-Wide Entity.\11\ Since the Preliminary 
Results, none of the companies which did not file separate-rate 
applications or certifications submitted comments regarding this 
finding. Therefore, we continue to treat these entities as part of the 
PRC-Wide Entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ Id., at ``PRC-Wide Entity and Selection of Adverse Facts 
Available (``AFA'') Rate'' sections.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department calculated the PRC-Wide 
Entity Rate using adverse facts available (``AFA'') because (1) the 
PRC-Wide Entity withheld requested information, failed to provide 
information in a timely manner and in the form requested, and 
significantly impeded this proceeding and (2) the PRC-Wide Entity 
failed to cooperate to the best of its ability.\12\ In so doing, and 
consistent with our practice, the Department relied upon the highest 
rate on the record of any segment of the proceeding--187.25 
percent.\13\ The Department also corroborated that rate, consistent 
with section 776(c) of the Act.\14\ Since the Preliminary Results, no 
interested party has submitted any evidence or comments that challenge 
the Department's calculation of the PRC-Wide Rate. Therefore, we will 
continue to apply a rate of 187.25 percent to the PRC-Wide Entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ The companies that did not cooperate were Shaoxing 
Liangbao; Pu Jiang; Shaoxing Shunji; Shaoxing Zhongbao; Shangyu 
Baoxiang; and Lucky Hanger.

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).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of 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. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 
15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. 
In these final 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.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 
2012) (``Final Modification for Reviews'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Where the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated 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).\18\ Where an 
importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem is greater than de 
minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate 
duties at the time of liquidation.\19\ Where an importer- (or customer-
) specific ad valorem is zero or de minimis, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\20\

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 by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the Shanghai Wells 
Group, the cash deposit rate will be its respective rates established 
in the final results of this review, except if the rate is zero or de 
minimis no cash deposit will be required; (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 187.25 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. These 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 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

[[Page 28805]]

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: May 7, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
