Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive.9 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case briefs by parties to this proceeding are listed in the Appendix to this notice. Parties’ rebuttal comments and the Department’s response to these issues are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with this notice.10 The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU), Room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce Building, as well as 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://iaacess.trade.gov and is available to all parties in the CRU. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Results of the Review As a result of this review, we determine the following weightedaverage dumping margins 11 exist for the period August 1, 2011, through February 14, 2012: Weighted-average dumping margin (percent) Producer or exporter Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd. ................................................................................................................................................................ Hyundai HYSCO .......................................................................................................................................................................... Dongkuk Industries Co., Ltd. ....................................................................................................................................................... Haewon MSC Co. Ltd. ................................................................................................................................................................. LG Chem., Ltd. ............................................................................................................................................................................ LG Hausys, Ltd. ........................................................................................................................................................................... Union Steel Manufacturing Co., Ltd. ........................................................................................................................................... Disclosure The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.12 Since the weightedaverage dumping margin is not zero or de minimis for Dongbu, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for an importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.13 For HYSCO, we will instruct CBP to liquidate its appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties because HYSCO’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero percent. For the five nonexamined respondents in this review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate their entries at a rate of 7.64%. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003.14 This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent for which they did not know that their 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.15 We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. 9 For a full description of the scope of the order, see the ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea’’ from Gary Taverman, Senior Advisor for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, (Issues and Decision Memorandum) dated concurrently with these results and hereby adopted by this notice. 10 See the Issues and Decision Memorandum. 11 Because there was only one rate that was not zero, de minimis, or based on total facts available, we are using this weighted-average dumping margin (Dongbu’s) as the rate for the non-examined companies. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b), we will disclose the calculation memorandums used in our analysis to parties to this review within five days of the date of publication of this notice. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Assessment Rates VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:57 Mar 27, 2014 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7.64 0.00 7.64 7.64 7.64 7.64 7.64 Cash Deposit Requirements The Department notified CBP to discontinue the collection of cash deposits on entries of the subject merchandise, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after February 14, 2012.16 Therefore, no cash deposit requirements will be imposed in response to these final results. Reimbursement of Duties 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.

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.

DATES: Effective Date: March 28, 2014. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) received a timely request for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People’s mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:57 Mar 27, 2014 Jkt 232001 Republic of China (PRC) from Dezhou Kaihang Agricultural Science Technology Co., Ltd. (Dezhou Kaihang). The Department determined that the request meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for initiation. As a consequence, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), the Department is initiating an antidumping duty new shipper review of Dezhou Kaihang. The period of review (POR) of this new shipper review is February 1, 2013, through February 28, 2014, as explained further in the ‘‘Period of Review’’ section below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Drury or Ilissa Shefferman, AD/CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482–0195 or (202) 482– 4684, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 19, 1999, the Department published the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC.1 The antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC therefore has a February anniversary month. On February 27, 2014, Dezhou Kaihang timely filed a request for a new shipper review.2 In its request for review, Dezhou Kaihang identified itself as the exporter of the subject merchandise, while listing the producer as Shandong Fengyu Edible Fungus Co., Ltd. (Fengyu). Pursuant to the requirements set forth in section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2), Dezhou Kaihang certified that: (1) it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (POI) (see section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(ii)(A)); (2) since the initiation of the investigation it has never been affiliated with any company that exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, including those companies not individually examined during the investigation (see section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A)); and (3) its export activities were not controlled by the 1 See Notice of Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Preserved Mushrooms From the People’s Republic of China, 64 FR 8308 (February 19, 1999). 2 See Letter from Dezhou Kaihang to Secretary of Commerce, dated February 27, 2014 (Dezhou Kaihang Request). PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17505 central government of the PRC (see 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B)). Dezhou Kaihang and Fengyu also certified that Fengyu did not export the subject merchandise to the United States during the POI (see 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(ii)(B)).3 With respect to the certifications by and on behalf of Fengyu, the Department notes that Fengyu was subject to a prior new shipper review. In that review, the Department rescinded the review because the Department was ‘‘unable to make an affirmative determination that subject merchandise produced and exported by Fengyu actually entered the United States for consumption during the POR.’’ 4 The Department intends to explore the circumstances behind Fengyu’s certifications and documentation during the course of the instant review. Moreover, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Dezhou Kaihang submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) the date on which it first shipped subject merchandise to the United States; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customers in the United States.5 Finally, the Department conducted a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) database query and, except as explained below, confirmed the price, quantity, date of sale, and date of entry of the sale at issue.6 Period of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(c), an exporter or producer may request a new shipper review within one year of the date on which its subject merchandise was first entered. In terms of timing, 19 CFR 351.214(d) explains that where the new shipper review was requested in the six-month period ending with the end of the anniversary month the Department initiates the review in the calendar month immediately following the anniversary month. Moreover, 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A) states that if the new shipper review was initiated in the month immediately following the anniversary month, the review will normally cover, as appropriate, entries, 3 Id. at 2 and Attachment 1.

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we determine the following weighted-
average dumping margins \11\ exist for the period August 1, 2011, 
through February 14, 2012:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ Because there was only one rate that was not zero, de 
minimis, or based on total facts available, we are using this 
weighted-average dumping margin (Dongbu's) as the rate for the non-
examined companies.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                       Weighted-average
                Producer or exporter                    dumping margin
                                                           (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd...............................                7.64
Hyundai HYSCO.......................................                0.00
Dongkuk Industries Co., Ltd.........................                7.64
Haewon MSC Co. Ltd..................................                7.64
LG Chem., Ltd.......................................                7.64

Disclosure

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b), we will disclose the 
calculation memorandums used in our analysis to parties to this review 
within five days of the date of publication of this notice.

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review.\12\ Since the weighted-average dumping 
margin is not zero or de minimis for Dongbu, we calculated importer-
specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for an importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For HYSCO, we will instruct CBP to liquidate its appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties because HYSCO's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero percent. For the five non-examined 
respondents in this review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate their 
entries at a rate of 7.64%.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\14\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent for which they 
did not know that their 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.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    \15\ For a full discussion of this clarification, see id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The Department notified CBP to discontinue the collection of cash 
deposits on entries of the subject merchandise, entered or withdrawn 
from warehouse, on or after February 14, 2012.\16\ Therefore, no cash 
deposit requirements will be imposed in response to these final 
results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See CORE Revocation, 78 FR at 16833.

Reimbursement of Duties

    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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.402(f)(3).

Notification to Interested Parties

    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 APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. 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.
    These final results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
