The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now October 23, 2013. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes steel threaded rod. The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under subheading 7318.15.5051, 7318.15.5056,12 7318.15.5090, and 7318.15.2095 of the United States Harmonized Tariff Schedule (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive.13 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this Notice. A list of the issues which parties raised is attached to this notice as Appendix I. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’), Room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building, as well as electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘IA ACCESS’’). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// iaaccess.trade.gov and in the CRU. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. 12 HTSUS 7318.15.5056 was not listed in the scope for the Preliminary Results but should have been included in the scope.

For a full description of the scope of the Order, see Memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, Subject: Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Third Antidumping Duty Administrative Review (October 7, 2013) (‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’). PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66331 Determination of No Reviewable Transactions In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that two companies had no shipments.14 These companies either reported that they had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States or the record evidence showed that they had no shipments 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 reviewable transactions made by these companies during the POR.15 Subsequent to the Preliminary Results, the Department did not receive any comments or information which indicated that these two companies made sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, consistent with the Department’s refinement to its assessment practice in nonmarket economy (‘‘NME’’) cases, the Department finds that it is appropriate not to rescind the review in these circumstances, but, rather, to complete the review with respect to those two companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.16 Determination Not To Revoke Order in Part We continue to find that the RMB/IFI Group has not satisfied the requirements of 19 CFR 351.222(b).17 Thus, under section 751 of the Act, we determine not to revoke in part the order with respect to the RMB/IFI Group. 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 the RMB/ IFI Group.18 14 These companies are: 1) Certified Products International, Inc. (‘‘CPI’’), and 2) Jiangxi Xinyue Standard Part Co., Ltd. (‘‘Jiaxing Xinyue’’), collectively ‘‘No Shipment Respondents.’’ 15 See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 21102. 16 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (‘‘NME Antidumping Proceedings’’). 17 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 8. The Department recently published a final rule amending this section of its regulations concerning the revocation of antidumping and countervailing duty orders in whole or in part, but that final rule does not apply to this administrative review. See Modification to Regulation Concerning the Revocation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Order, 77 FR 29875 (May 21, 2012). Reference to 19 CFR 351.222(b) thus refers to the Department’s regulations in effect prior to June 20, 2012. 18 See Issues and Decision Memorandum and the company-specific analysis memoranda. See E:\FR\FM\05NON1.SGM Continued 05NON1 66332 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 214 / Tuesday, November 5, 2013 / Notices Separate Rates In our Preliminary Results, we determined that the RMB/IFI Group and Zhejiang New Oriental Fastener Co., Ltd. (‘‘Zhejiang New Oriental’’) met the criteria for separate rate status.19 We have not received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsideration of this determination. Therefore, the Department continues to find that these companies meet the criteria for separate rate status. Rate for Non-Selected Companies Zhejiang New Oriental was not selected for individual review but, as explained above, meets the criteria for separate rate status. As in the Preliminary Results, we have assigned Zhejiang New Oriental the rate calculated for the mandatory respondent (i.e., the RMB/IFI Group). The RMB IFI Group’s rate is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.20 For the final results, we continue to find this approach to be consistent with section 735(c)(5) of the Act and the Department’s practice.21 wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES PRC-Wide Rate and PRC-Wide Entity For the PRC-Wide Entity, the Department in the Preliminary Results assigned the rate of 206 percent, the only rate ever determined for the PRCwide entity in this proceeding.22 Because this rate is the same as the PRCWide rate from previous segments 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 206 percent.23 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.24 Since the Preliminary Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Analysis for the Final Results of the Third Administrative Review of Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: RMB/IFI Group,’’ (October 7, 2013). 19 See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 21101 and accompanying Decision Memorandum at 4–6. 20 See Preliminary Results, and accompanying Decision Memorandum at 7.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:22 Nov 04, 2013 Jkt 232001 Results, none of these companies submitted comments regarding these findings. Therefore, we continue to treat these companies as part of the PRCWide Entity.25 Additionally, in the Preliminary Results, for five companies,26 the Department found that, while the request for review had been withdrawn, none of these five companies had a separate rate. Accordingly, these five companies remained part of the PRCwide entity, which remained under review for the Preliminary Results.27 Thus, the Department did not rescind the review for each of these five companies for the Preliminary Results. Since the Preliminary Results, no party has presented any information to the contrary and thus, these five companies remain part of the PRC-wide entity, which remains under review for the final results. Final Results of the Review The dumping margins for the POR are as follows: Weightedaverage margin (percent) Exporter (1) Jiaxing Brother Standard Part Co., Ltd., IFI & Morgan Ltd. and RMB Fasteners Ltd. (collectively ‘‘RMB/IFI Group’’) ................................. (2) Zhejiang New Oriental Fastener Co., Ltd ........................ 19.54 *19.54 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. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered 25 See Appendix II. July 26, 2012, Vulcan Threaded Products Inc. (‘‘Petitioner’’) timely withdrew its request for review for five companies: (1) Autocraft Industry Ltd.; (2) Autocraft Industry (Shanghai) Ltd.; (3) Fuda Xiongzhen Machinery Co., Ltd.; (4) Shanghai Furen International Trading; and (5) Shanghai Printing and Packaging Machinery Corp. No other party requested a review on these five companies. 27 See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 21101. 26 On PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 value of sales.28 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate is above de minimis. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For Zhejiang New Oriental Fastener Co., Ltd., the company receiving a separate rate that was 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. The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases. 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 NME-wide rate. 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 NME-wide rate. For a full discussion of this practice, see NME Antidumping Proceedings. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC 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 RMB/ IFI Group and Zhejiang New Oriental Fastener Co., Ltd., the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporterspecific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, 28 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). E:\FR\FM\05NON1.SGM 05NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 214 / Tuesday, November 5, 2013 / Notices the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; 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 that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These 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 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. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Dated: October 23, 2013.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties are 
addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby 
adopted by this Notice. A list of the issues which parties raised is 
attached to this notice as Appendix I. The Issues and Decision 
Memorandum is a public document and is on file in the Central Records 
Unit (``CRU''), Room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building, 
as well as electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (``IA 
ACCESS''). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the CRU. In addition, a complete version of 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the 
internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed Issues and Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Determination of No Reviewable Transactions

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that two 
companies had no shipments.\14\ These companies either reported that 
they had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States or 
the record evidence showed that they had no shipments 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 reviewable transactions made by these companies during 
the POR.\15\ Subsequent to the Preliminary Results, the Department did 
not receive any comments or information which indicated that these two 
companies made sales of subject merchandise to the United States during 
the POR. Therefore, consistent with the Department's refinement to its 
assessment practice in nonmarket economy (``NME'') cases, the 
Department finds that it is appropriate not to rescind the review in 
these circumstances, but, rather, to complete the review with respect 
to those two companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based 
on the final results of the review.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ These companies are: 1) Certified Products International, 
Inc. (``CPI''), and 2) Jiangxi Xinyue Standard Part Co., Ltd. 
(``Jiaxing Xinyue''), collectively ``No Shipment Respondents.''
    \15\ See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 21102.
    \16\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (``NME 
Antidumping Proceedings'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Determination Not To Revoke Order in Part

    We continue to find that the RMB/IFI Group has not satisfied the 
requirements of 19 CFR 351.222(b).\17\ Thus, under section 751 of the 
Act, we determine not to revoke in part the order with respect to the 
RMB/IFI Group.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 8. The 
Department recently published a final rule amending this section of 
its regulations concerning the revocation of antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders in whole or in part, but that final rule 
does not apply to this administrative review. See Modification to 
Regulation Concerning the Revocation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Order, 77 FR 29875 (May 21, 2012). Reference to 
19 CFR 351.222(b) thus refers to the Department's regulations in 
effect prior to June 20, 2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 the RMB/IFI Group.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum and the company-specific 
analysis memoranda. See Memorandum to the File, ``Analysis for the 
Final Results of the Third Administrative Review of Certain Steel 
Threaded Rod from the People's Republic of China: RMB/IFI Group,'' 
(October 7, 2013).

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

[[Page 66332]]

Separate Rates

    In our Preliminary Results, we determined that the RMB/IFI Group 
and Zhejiang New Oriental Fastener Co., Ltd. (``Zhejiang New 
Oriental'') met the criteria for separate rate status.\19\ We have not 
received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results 
that provides a basis for reconsideration of this determination. 
Therefore, the Department continues to find that these companies meet 
the criteria for separate rate status.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 21101 and accompanying 
Decision Memorandum at 4-6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rate for Non-Selected Companies

    Zhejiang New Oriental was not selected for individual review but, 
as explained above, meets the criteria for separate rate status. As in 
the Preliminary Results, we have assigned Zhejiang New Oriental the 
rate calculated for the mandatory respondent (i.e., the RMB/IFI Group). 
The RMB IFI Group's rate is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on 
facts available.\20\ For the final results, we continue to find this 
approach to be consistent with section 735(c)(5) of the Act and the 
Department's practice.\21\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \20\ See Preliminary Results, and accompanying Decision 
Memorandum at 7. See also Fourth Administrative Review of Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results, Preliminary Partial Rescission of Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review and Intent Not To Revoke, In Part, 75 FR 
11855, 11859 (March 12, 2010).
    \21\ See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 21101.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

PRC-Wide Rate and PRC-Wide Entity

    For the PRC-Wide Entity, the Department in the Preliminary Results 
assigned the rate of 206 percent, the only rate ever determined for the 
PRC-wide entity in this proceeding.\22\ Because this rate is the same 
as the PRC-Wide rate from previous segments 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 206 percent.\23\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \22\ See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 21103, and accompanying 
Decision Memorandum at 7-8.
    \23\ See STR Final Determination, 74 FR at 8910.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.\24\ Since the 
Preliminary Results, none of these companies submitted comments 
regarding these findings. Therefore, we continue to treat these 
companies as part of the PRC- Wide Entity.\25\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \24\ See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 21102, and accompanying 
Decision Memorandum at 7-8.
    \25\ See Appendix II.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, in the Preliminary Results, for five companies,\26\ 
the Department found that, while the request for review had been 
withdrawn, none of these five companies had a separate rate. 
Accordingly, these five companies remained part of the PRC-wide entity, 
which remained under review for the Preliminary Results.\27\ Thus, the 
Department did not rescind the review for each of these five companies 
for the Preliminary Results. Since the Preliminary Results, no party 
has presented any information to the contrary and thus, these five 
companies remain part of the PRC-wide entity, which remains under 
review for the final results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \26\ On July 26, 2012, Vulcan Threaded Products Inc. 
(``Petitioner'') timely withdrew its request for review for five 
companies: (1) Autocraft Industry Ltd.; (2) Autocraft Industry 
(Shanghai) Ltd.; (3) Fuda Xiongzhen Machinery Co., Ltd.; (4) 
Shanghai Furen International Trading; and (5) Shanghai Printing and 
Packaging Machinery Corp. No other party requested a review on these 
five companies.
    \27\ See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 21101.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    The dumping margins for the POR are as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                              Weighted-
                                                               average
                          Exporter                              margin
                                                              (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
(1) Jiaxing Brother Standard Part Co., Ltd., IFI & Morgan          19.54
 Ltd. and RMB Fasteners Ltd. (collectively ``RMB/IFI
 Group'')..................................................
(2) Zhejiang New Oriental Fastener Co., Ltd................       *19.54
------------------------------------------------------------------------

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. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-
average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the 
Department will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the 
basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the 
importer's examined sales and the total entered value of sales.\28\ We 
will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment 
rate is above de minimis. Where either the respondent's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \28\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For Zhejiang New Oriental Fastener Co., Ltd., the company receiving 
a separate rate that was 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.
    The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment 
practice in NME cases. 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 NME-wide rate. 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 NME-wide rate. For a full discussion of 
this practice, see NME Antidumping Proceedings.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC 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 RMB/IFI Group 
and Zhejiang New Oriental Fastener Co., Ltd., the cash deposit rate 
will be that established in the final results of this review; (2) for 
previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that 
received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific 
rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate,

[[Page 66333]]

the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; 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 that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These 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 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: October 23, 2013.
