SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) and the International Trade Commission (the ‘‘ITC’’) that revocation of the antidumping duty order on low enriched uranium (‘‘LEU’’) from France would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a notice of continuation of the antidumping duty order. DATES: Effective Date: December 24, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hilary Sadler, AD/CVD Operations, Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482–4340. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 3, 2012, the Department initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on LEU from France, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’).1 As a result of its review, the Department determined that revocation of the order on LEU from France would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should the order be revoked.2 On December 12, 2013, the ITC published its determination, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act that revocation of the antidumping duty order on LEU from France would lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.3 Scope of the Order emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES The product covered by the order is all low enriched uranium (‘‘LEU’’). LEU is enriched uranium hexafluoride (UF6) with a U235 product assay of less than 20 percent that has not been converted into another chemical form, such as UO2, or fabricated into nuclear fuel assemblies, regardless of the means by 1 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 77 FR 71684 (December 3, 2013). 2 See Low Enriched Uranium from France: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 78 FR 21100 (April 9, 2013). 3 See Low Enriched Uranium from France (Investigation No. 731–TA–909 (Second Review), 78 FR 75579 (December 12, 2013). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:36 Dec 23, 2013 Jkt 232001 which the LEU is produced (including LEU produced through the downblending of highly enriched uranium). Certain merchandise is outside the scope of the order. Specifically, the order does not cover enriched uranium hexafluoride with a U235 assay of 20 percent or greater, also known as highly enriched uranium. In addition, fabricated LEU is not covered by the scope of the order. For purposes of the order, fabricated uranium is defined as enriched uranium dioxide (UO2), whether or not contained in nuclear fuel rods or assemblies. Natural uranium concentrates (U3O8) with a U235 concentration of no greater than 0.711 percent and natural uranium concentrates converted into uranium hexafluoride with a U235 concentration of no greater than 0.711 percent are not covered by the scope of the order. Also excluded from the order is LEU owned by a foreign utility end-user and imported into the United States by or for such end-user solely for purposes of conversion by a U.S. fabricator into uranium dioxide (UO2) and/or fabrication into fuel assemblies so long as the uranium dioxide and/or fuel assemblies deemed to incorporate such imported LEU (i) remain in the possession and control of the U.S. fabricator, the foreign end-user, or their designed transporter(s) while in U.S. customs territory, and (ii) are reexported within eighteen (18) months of entry of the LEU for consumption by the enduser in a nuclear reactor outside the United States. Such entries must be accompanied by the certifications of the importer and end user. The merchandise subject to this order is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) at subheading 2844.20.0020. Subject merchandise may also enter under 2844.20.0030, 2844.20.0050, and 2844.40.00. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive. Continuation of the Order As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to Section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping duty order on LEU from France. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at the PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77651 rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of the order will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of the order not later than 30 days prior to the effective date of the continuation. The five-year (‘‘sunset’’) review and this notice are in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: December 17, 2013. Ronald K.

Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.10 Golden Dragon and Nacobre reported the names of the importers of record and the entered value for all of their sales to the United States during the POR. If Golden Dragon’s and Nacobre’s weighted-average dumping margins are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we 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 those sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Golden Dragon and Nacobre for which they did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 9 See id. 19 CFR 351.212(b). 10 See E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 247 / Tuesday, December 24, 2013 / Notices We intend to issue instructions to CBP 41 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of seamless refined copper pipe and tube from Mexico entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for Golden Dragon and Nacobre will be equal to the weightedaverage dumping margins established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 26.03 percent, the all-others rate established in the Order. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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.

in the hearing will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If a 
request for a hearing is made, parties will be notified of the time and 
date for the hearing to be held at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 
14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230.\9\

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the 
issues raised in any written briefs, no later than 120 days after the 
date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), unless this deadline is extended.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\10\ Golden 
Dragon and Nacobre reported the names of the importers of record and 
the entered value for all of their sales to the United States during 
the POR. If Golden Dragon's and Nacobre's weighted-average dumping 
margins are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) in 
the final results of this review, we 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 those sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 
We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment 
rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Golden Dragon and Nacobre for 
which they did not know its merchandise was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 41 days after the 
publication date of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of seamless refined copper pipe and tube from Mexico 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) 
The cash deposit rates for Golden Dragon and Nacobre will be equal to 
the weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results 
of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by 
manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a 
prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to 
be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed 
segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
prior review, or the original investigation but the manufacturer is, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently completed segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 26.03 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
Order. These cash 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

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.\11\ 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 preliminary results of this 
review is now December 18, 2013.

sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h) and 
351.221(b)(4).
