As we stated in the Preliminary Results, we determined it is appropriate to calculate importer-specific per-unit duty assessment rates.4 We calculated importer-specific per-unit duty assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity of those sales. To determine whether the per-unit duty assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), we calculated customerspecific ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered value. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.50 percent).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The review covers one producer and exporter of the subject 
merchandise, JBL Canada. On June 7, 2013, the Department published in 
the Federal Register the preliminary results of administrative review 
of the antidumping duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts 
from Canada. We invited parties to comment on the preliminary results 
of the review. In July 2013, we received case and rebuttal briefs from 
Archer Daniels Midland Company, Cargill, Incorporated, and Tate & Lyle 
Ingredients Americas LLC (collectively, the petitioners) and JBL 
Canada. On July 8, 2013, the petitioners requested that the Department 
conduct a hearing in this review. On August 1, 2013, the petitioners 
withdrew their hearing request. 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 merchandise covered by this order is citric acid and certain 
citrate salts. The product is currently classified in the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at item numbers 
2918.14.0000 and 2918.15.1000, 2918.15.5000 and 3824.90.9290. Although

this notice. A list of the issues which parties raised and to which we 
respond in the Issues and Decision Memo is attached to this notice as 
Appendix I. The Issues and Decision Memo is a public document and is on

electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memo are identical in 
content.

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 no 
changes to our calculations. Therefore, the final results do not differ 
from the preliminary results.

[[Page 64915]]

Final Results of the Review

    We determine that a weighted-average dumping margin of 1.20 percent 
exists for entries of subject merchandise that were produced and/or 
exported by JBL Canada and that entered, or were withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption during the period May 1, 2011, through April 
30, 2012.

Assessment Rates

    Purusant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department shall determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries in accordance with the final results 
of this review.\3\ Pursuant to 19 CFR 356.8(a), the Department intends 
to issue appropriate appraisement instructions for the respondent 
subject to this review directly to CBP 41 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ In these final results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As we stated in the Preliminary Results, we determined it is 
appropriate to calculate importer-specific per-unit duty assessment 
rates.\4\ We calculated importer-specific per-unit duty assessment 
rates by aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated 
for the examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity 
of those sales. To determine whether the per-unit duty assessment rates 
are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(1), we calculated customer-specific ad valorem ratios based 
on the estimated entered value.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 34339.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific 
assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above 
de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.50 percent). Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to 
antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The final results of this 
review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on 
entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and 
for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment 
Policy Notice). This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by JBL Canada for which it did not 
know that the merchandise it sold to the intermediary (e.g., a 
reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate effective during the POR if there is no 
rate for the intermediary involved in the transaction. See Assessment 
Policy Notice for a full discussion of this clarification.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for JBL Canada will 
be that established in the final results of this review, (2) for 
previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this 
review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific 
rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a 
firm covered in this review, a previous review, or the original less-
than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period 
for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate 
for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 23.21 
percent, the all-others rate made effective by the LTFV investigation. 
See Citric Acid Duty Orders, 74 FR 25703. 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), 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, 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 the terms of an APO is a 
sanctionable violation.

Tolling of Deadlines

    As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, the Department has exercised its discretion 
to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal 
Government from October 1, through October 16, 2013. See Memorandum for 
the Record from Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance, ``Deadlines Affected by the Shutdown of the Federal 
Government'' (October 18, 2013). Therefore, all deadlines in this 
segment of the proceeding have been extended by 16 days. If the new 
deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with the 
Department's practice, the deadline will become the next business day. 
The revised deadline for the final results of this review is now 
October 23, 2013.
    This administrative review and notice are published in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: October 23, 2013.
