However, the Department generally will not accept in the rebuttal submission additional or alternative surrogate value information not previously on the record, if the deadline for submission of surrogate value information has passed.6 Furthermore, the Department generally will not accept business proprietary information in either the surrogate value submissions or the rebuttals thereto, as the regulation regarding the submission of surrogate values allows only for the submission of publicly available information.7 Assessment Rates Upon issuing the final results of this NSR, the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.8 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this NSR. In this review, we calculated a perunit rate for each importer by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions.

Then, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this NSR. 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. The final results of this NSR shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this administrative review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this NSR for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For merchandise produced by Jinxiang Zhongtian Business Co., Ltd. and exported by Goodman, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing producer/exporter-specific combination rate; (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 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 producer/exporter combination that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Government from October 1, through October 16, 2013.\1\ Therefore, all

[[Page 67113]]

    The Department will issue the final results of this NSR, which will 
include the results of its analysis of issues raised in any such 
comments, within 90 days of publication of these preliminary results, 
pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.

Deadline for Submission of Publicly Available Surrogate Value 
Information

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(ii), the deadline for 
submission of publicly available information to value factors of 
production under 19 CFR 351.408(c) is 20 days after the date of 
publication of the preliminary results. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.301(c)(4), if an interested party submits factual information less 
than ten days before, on, or after (if the Department has extended the 
deadline), the applicable deadline for submission of such factual 
information, an interested party may submit factual information to 
rebut, clarify, or correct the factual information no later than ten 
days after such factual information is served on the interested party. 
However, the Department generally will not accept in the rebuttal 
submission additional or alternative surrogate value information not 
previously on the record, if the deadline for submission of surrogate 
value information has passed.\6\ Furthermore, the Department generally 
will not accept business proprietary information in either the 
surrogate value submissions or the rebuttals thereto, as the regulation 
regarding the submission of surrogate values allows only for the 
submission of publicly available information.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See, e.g., Glycine from the People's Republic of China: 
Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final 
Rescission, in Part, 72 FR 58809 (October 17, 2007), and 
accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 2.
    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of this NSR, the Department shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\8\ The Department 
intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date 
of publication of the final results of this NSR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In this review, we calculated a per-unit rate for each importer by 
dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by 
the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. For duty-
assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess 
the resulting per-unit rate against the entered quantity of the subject 
merchandise. If the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is 
above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty 
assessment rate based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total entered value 
of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Then, we 
will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this NSR. 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. 
The final results of this NSR shall be the basis for the assessment of 
antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final 
results of this administrative review and for future deposits of 
estimated duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this NSR 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 merchandise produced by 
Jinxiang Zhongtian Business Co., Ltd. and exported by Goodman, the cash 
deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this 
review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash 
deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed 
PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate 
rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the existing producer/exporter-specific combination 
rate; (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 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 producer/exporter 
combination 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 preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214, and 
351.221(b)(4).
