Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of these orders is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received The issues discussed in the Decision Memorandum are the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping, and the magnitude of the margins of dumping likely to prevail if these orders were revoked. The analysis addresses the impact of the Final Modification for Reviews 4 on these reviews. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum which is on file 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 is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit in room 7046 of the main Commerce building.

The signed Decision Memorandum and electronic versions of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Results of Review Pursuant to sections 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act, we determine that revocation of the antidumping orders of PET film from Brazil, the PRC and UAE would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. Further, we determine that the magnitude of the margins of dumping likely to prevail are as follows: BRAZIL Exporter/ producer Terphane Inc ........................

Thus, Hitachi Metals operates as the same business entity as Hitachi Cable with respect to the subject merchandise.4 As a result of this determination, we find that Hitachi Metals should receive the cash deposit rate previously assigned to Hitachi Cable in the most recently completed review of the antidumping duty order on SSSSC from Japan. Consequently, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all shipments of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by Hitachi Metals and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the Federal Register at 0.00 percent, which is the urrent cash deposit rate for Hitachi Cable.5 This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until further notice.

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    Because no parties submitted comments opposing the Department's 
preliminary results, and because there is no other information or 
evidence on the record that calls into question the preliminary 
results, for the reasons outlined in the Initiation and Preliminary 
Results, the Department determines that Hitachi Metals is the 
successor-in-interest to the merger of Hitachi Metals and Hitachi Cable 
for the purpose of determining antidumping duty liability.\3\ 
Specifically, we find that the merger of these two companies resulted 
in no significant changes to management, production facilities, 
supplier relationships, and customers with respect to the production 
and sale of the subject merchandise. Thus, Hitachi Metals operates as 
the same business entity as Hitachi Cable with respect to the subject 
merchandise.\4\ As a result of this determination, we find that Hitachi 
Metals should receive the cash deposit rate previously assigned to 
Hitachi Cable in the most recently completed review of the antidumping 
duty order on SSSSC from Japan. Consequently, the Department will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of 
all shipments of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by 
Hitachi Metals and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the 
Federal Register at 0.00 percent, which is the urrent cash deposit rate 
for Hitachi Cable.\5\ This cash deposit requirement shall remain in 
effect until further notice.
