Therefore, for these final results, the Department continues to find that Blue Field and the other 23 exporters named in this section are part of the PRC-wide entity and that the use of adverse facts available is warranted with respect to the PRC-wide entity. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we determined that Xiamen International Trade & Industrial Co., Ltd. (XITIC) and Zhangzhou Hongda Import & Export Trading Co., Ltd. (Zhangzhou Hongda) did not have any reviewable transactions during the period of review (POR) because (1) XITIC and Zhangzhou Hongda submitted timely certifications of no shipments, entries, or sales of subject merchandise during the POR and (2) We did not receive any information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) indicating that there were reviewable transactions for XITIC or Zhangzhou Hongda during the POR.13 Consistent with the Department’s assessment practice in non-market economy cases,14 we stated in the Preliminary Results that the Department would not rescind the review in these circumstances, but rather would complete the review with respect to XITIC and Zhangzhou Hongda and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.15 As stated above, we did not receive any comments on our Preliminary Results, nor have we received any information that would cause us to revisit our preliminary determinations as to no shipments. Accordingly, in these final results, we continue to determine that XITIC and Zhangzhou Hongda had no reviewable transactions of subject merchandise during the POR. Final Results of Review tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES The Department determined that the following dumping margin exists for the period February 1, 2012 through January 31, 2013: 13 Id., 78 FR at 69819.

Assessment Rates The Department determined, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review.17 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. For the PRC-wide entity, the Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise at the PRC-wide rate of 308.33 percent. Additionally, consistent with the Department’s refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases, because the Department determined that XITIC and Zhangzhou Hongda had no reviewable transactions of subject merchandise during the POR, any suspended entries that entered under XITIC’s or Zhangzhou Hongda’s antidumping duty case numbers (i.e., at those exporters’ rates) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.18 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice of final results of the administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For XITIC and Zhangzhou Hongda, which claimed no shipments, the cash deposit rate will remain unchanged from the rate assigned to each exporter in the most recentlycompleted review of each exporter; (2) For any previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters which are not under review in this segment of the proceeding that received a separate rate in a previous segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recentlycompleted period; (3) For all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, including Blue Field, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 308.33 percent); 17 See 18 See 19 CFR 351.212(b).

These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final 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 POR. 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. Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable violation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Department initiated an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on brass sheet and strip from Japan with respect 
to 22 companies for the period August 1, 2012, through July 31, 2013, 
based on a request by GBC Metals, LLC, of Global Brass and Copper, 
Inc., doing business as Olin Brass; Heyco Metals, Inc.; Aurubis 
Buffalo, Inc.; PMX Industries, Inc.; and Revere Copper Products, Inc. 
(collectively, Petitioners).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 
60834 (October 2, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On December 19, 2013, Petitioners withdrew their request for an 
administrative review on all 22 companies. No other party requested a 
review.

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(l), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In 
this case, Petitioners withdrew their request within the 90-day 
deadline, and no other parties requested an administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order. Therefore, we are rescinding the 
administrative review of brass sheet and strip from Japan covering the 
period August 1, 2012, through July 31, 2013.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all entries of brass sheet and 
strip from Japan during the period August 1, 2012 to July 31, 2013, at 
rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties 
required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for 
consumption in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(l)(i). The Department 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of this notice.

Notifications

    This notice serves as a final 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 presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under an APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(l) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(4).
