Changes Since the Preliminary Results There have been no changes since Preliminary Results. Period of Review The POR is November 22, 2010, through October 31, 2011. Partial Rescission of Review Petitioners timely requested an administrative review for Golden Dragon Holding (Hong Kong) International Co., Ltd., Hong Kong GD Trading Co., Ltd., Sinochem Ningbo Import & Export Co., Ltd., and Sinochem Ningbo Ltd., companies which do not have a separate rate, and then timely withdrew their requests for review of the above-mentioned companies.8 Because these companies have not established their eligibility for a separate rate, they would be considered part of the PRC-wide entity. In the Preliminary Results, we stated that we intended to rescind the administrative review with respect to these companies in the final results if the PRC-wide entity is not reviewed.9 Because the PRC-wide entity is not under review for the final results of this administrative review, we are rescinding the administrative review for the above-mentioned companies for which we received a timely withdrawal of the request for administrative review in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Petitioners also timely requested an administrative review, then timely withdrew their requests for the 8 See Petitioners’ letter entitled, ‘‘Seamless Refined Copper Pipe and Tube From the People’s Republic of China: Withdrawal of Request for Antidumping Administrative Reviews,’’ dated February 6, 2012. 9 See Preliminary Results, 77 FR at 47031.

Final Results of the Review We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the POR: Exporter Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group, Inc ......... Hong Kong Hailiang Metal Trading Limited, Zhejiang Hailiang Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Hailiang Copper Co., Ltd ............................. Margin (percentage) 0.00 60.85 Disclosure The Department intends to disclose calculations performed for these final results to the parties within five days of the date of the public announcement of the results of this review 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 covered by this review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. For each respondent whose weightedaverage dumping margin in these final results is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), the Department has calculated importer-specific assessment rates. Because we do not have entered values for all U.S. sales to a particular importer, we are calculating a per-unit assessment rate by aggregating the amount of dumping for all U.S. sales to that importer and dividing this amount by the total 10 See Petitioners’ letter entitled, ‘‘Seamless Refined Copper Pipe and Tube From the People’s Republic of China: Withdrawal of Request for Antidumping Administrative Reviews,’’ dated February 6, 2012. In the Preliminary Results, 77 FR at 47301, we inadvertently identified these companies as not having established their eligibility for a separate rate.

To determine whether an importer-specific, ad valorem assessment rates is de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculated importerspecific ad valorem rates as the amount of dumping for all U.S. sales to an importer divided by the estimated entered value of the same sales. We will instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at an ad valorem assessment rate equal to the weightedaverage dumping margin assigned to the PRC-wide entity. The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy cases.12 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 rate for the PRC-wide entity. 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 rate for the PRC-wide entity. 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 the exporters listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weightedaverage dumping margin established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then the cash deposit rate will be zero for that exporter); (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 recently completed segment of 11 See, e.g., Certain Cased Pencils From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 27988, 27989 (May 13, 2011). 12 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    There have been no changes since Preliminary Results.

Period of Review

    The POR is November 22, 2010, through October 31, 2011.

Partial Rescission of Review

    Petitioners timely requested an administrative review for Golden 
Dragon Holding (Hong Kong) International Co., Ltd., Hong Kong GD 
Trading Co., Ltd., Sinochem Ningbo Import & Export Co., Ltd., and 
Sinochem Ningbo Ltd., companies which do not have a separate rate, and 
then timely withdrew their requests for review of the above-mentioned 
companies.\8\ Because these companies have not established their 
eligibility for a separate rate, they would be considered part of the 
PRC-wide entity. In the Preliminary Results, we stated that we intended 
to rescind the administrative review with respect to these companies in 
the final results if the PRC-wide entity is not reviewed.\9\ Because 
the PRC-wide entity is not under review for the final results of this 
administrative review, we are rescinding the administrative review for 
the above-mentioned companies for which we received a timely withdrawal

    Petitioners also timely requested an administrative review, then 
timely withdrew their requests for the following companies that have 
previously established their eligibility for separate rate: Luvata 
Alltop (Zhongshan) Ltd., Luvata Tube (Zhongshan) Ltd., Ningbo Jintian 
Copper Tube Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Jiahe Pipes Inc., and Zhejiang Naile 
Copper Co., Ltd.\10\ Because the requests for administrative reviews 
for these companies were timely withdrawn, we are rescinding the 
administrative review for these companies in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1).

Final Results of the Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist for the POR:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                              Margin
                        Exporter                           (percentage)

Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group, Inc............            0.00
Hong Kong Hailiang Metal Trading Limited, Zhejiang                 60.85
 Hailiang Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Hailiang Copper Co.,
 Ltd....................................................
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    The Department intends to disclose calculations performed for these 
final results to the parties within five days of the date of the public 
announcement of the results of this review 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 
covered by this review. The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final 
results of this review.
    For each respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin in these 
final results is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), 
the Department has calculated importer-specific assessment rates. 
Because we do not have entered values for all U.S. sales to a 
particular importer, we are calculating a per-unit assessment rate by 
aggregating the amount of dumping for all U.S. sales to that importer 
and dividing this amount by the total

[[Page 35253]]

quantity sold to that importer.\11\ Where an exporter's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific 
ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. To 
determine whether an importer-specific, ad valorem assessment rates is 
de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we calculated importer-specific ad valorem rates as the 
amount of dumping for all U.S. sales to an importer divided by the 
estimated entered value of the same sales. We will instruct CBP to 
liquidate entries of subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide 
entity at an ad valorem assessment rate equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margin assigned to the PRC-wide entity.

of China: Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 76 FR 27988, 27989 (May 13, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in 
non-market economy cases.\12\ 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 rate for 
the PRC-wide entity. 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 rate for the PRC-
wide entity.

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 the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin established in the final results of this review 
(except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then the cash deposit rate 
will be zero for that exporter); (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 recently completed segment of this 
proceeding; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have 
not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be equal to 60.85 percent, the rate for the PRC-wide entity; \13\ 
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 exporter(s) that supplied that non-PRC exporter. 
These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    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 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.

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 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 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.
    The Department is issuing and publishing these final results of 
administrative review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: June 5, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
