SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 15, 2009, the Department published the final results of 
the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on PRCBs from 
Thailand.\2\ KYD challenged the Department's selection of adverse facts 
available applied to subject merchandise produced or exported by King 
Pac and Master Packaging at the CIT.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from Thailand: Final 
Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 74 FR 2511 (January 15, 2009) (Final Results).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On April 28, 2011, the CIT remanded for reconsideration, the 
selected adverse facts available rate specifically applied to 
merchandise both produced or exported by King Pac and Master Packaging 
and imported by KYD.\3\ On remand, the Department revisited its 
selection of an adverse facts available rate applied to merchandise 
produced or exported by King Pac and Master Packaging and imported by 
KYD, applying a rate of 94.62 percent.\4\ The CIT affirmed the 
Department's Final Remand Results on January 18, 2012.\5\ The CIT 
subsequently denied KYD's motion for reconsideration.\6\ Upon appeal, 
the CAFC affirmed the Department's Final Remand Results on May 29, 
2013. KYD did not appeal the CAFC's judgment.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See KYD Inc. v. United States, 779 F. Supp. 2d 1361 (CIT 
April 28, 2011).
    \4\ See ``Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Remand, 
KYD Inc. v. United States, Court No. 09-00034, Slip Op. 11-49'' 
(August 16, 2011) (Final Remand Results).
    \5\ See KYD v. United States, 807 F. Supp. 2d at 1378.
    \6\ See KYD Inc. v. United States, 836 F. Supp. 2d 1410 (CIT May 
8, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amended Final Results

    As the time period for appealing the CAFC's affirmation of the 
CIT's judgment has expired, the litigation is final and conclusive in 
this proceeding. Pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended, we are, therefore, amending our final results of review 
covering the POR August 1, 2006, through July 31, 2007, to reflect the 
findings of the remand redetermination affirmed in KYD v. United 
States.
    Accordingly, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all subject 
merchandise both produced or exported by King Pac and Master Packaging 
and imported by KYD for the period August 1, 2006, through July 31, 
2007, at the rate of 94.62 percent, in accordance with these amended 
final results.\7\ The Department intends to issue liquidation 
instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of these amended final 
results in the Federal Register.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ Subsequent to the CIT's affirmance of the Department's 
remand redetermination, no administrative review was requested 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(b) during the applicable anniversary 
months for entries of subject merchandise produced or exported by 
King Pac and Master Packaging and imported by KYD.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The CIT held in its April 28, 2011, judgment, which remanded the 
Final Results to the Department, that the legal question at issue in 
this litigation pertained only to entries imported by KYD during the 
POR and did not pertain to ``future entries whatsoever.'' \8\ 
Accordingly, in the Final Remand Results, the Department applied the 
94.62 percent rate ``only to the assessment of antidumping duties on 
entries of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by King Pac or 
Master Packaging and imported by KYD during the period of review.'' \9\ 
Because the CIT affirmed the Final Remand Results in KYD v. United 
States, no modification to the Department's cash deposit instructions 
is necessary in this case.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See KYD Inc. v. United States, 779 F. Supp. 2d at 1372.
    \9\ See Final Remand Results, at 21.
