Docket Number: 13–054. Applicant: Regents of the University of Minnesota, School of Physics and Astronomy, Minneapolis, MN 55455–0149. Instrument: Yanus IV Laser Scan Head. Manufacturer: Till Photonics, Germany. Intended Use: See notice at 79 FR 6888, February 5, 2014. Comments: None received. Decision: Approved. We know of no instruments of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instruments described below, for such purposes as this is intended to be used, that was being manufactured in the United States at the time of order. Reasons: The instrument will be used to study the oligomeric state of EGFP tagged Retenoid X Receptor (RXR– EGFP) in the absence and presence of its ligand by PCH analysis, as well as follow its binding to DNA and other nuclear factors by conventional and scanning fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS). The laser beam is continuously scanned in a circular fashion, which shows peaks and valleys which add contrast and give information about the scan radius, diffusion coefficient and particle concentrations that would be absent in conventional FCS. Conventional scan heads for laser microscopy have a finite distance between their scan axes, which introduces aberrations and vignetting into the scan. These distortions in the point spread function prohibit the quantitative imaging experiments. The Yanus IV scan head has been engineered with an effective zero optical distance between the scan axes, which maintains diffraction-limited performance across the entire scan field. This is the only instrument with zero effective optical distance between the scan axes. Dated: May 22, 2014. Supriya Kumar, Acting Director, Subsidies Enforcement Office, Enforcement and Compliance.

Final Determination

    For the final determination, we made no changes to the Preliminary 
Determination. Therefore, we continue to determine that the following 
margins exist for the following entities for the POI:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                       Weighted-average

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Critical Circumstances

    We made no changes to our critical circumstances analysis announced 
in the Preliminary Determination.\4\ Thus, pursuant to section 
735(a)(3) of the Act, we continue to find that critical circumstances 
exist with respect to imports of WSPP from Malaysia from mandatory 
respondents Kanzen Tetsu Sdn. Bhd. (``Kanzen''), Pantech Stainless & 
Alloy Industries Sdn. Bhd. (``Pantech''), and Superinox Pipe Industry 
Sdn. Bhd./Superinox International Sdn. Bhd. (``Superinox''). We 
continue to find that critical circumstances do not exist with respect 
to imports of WSPP from exporters or producers in the ``all others'' 
group.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Preliminary Determination, 79 FR at 810.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    We disclosed the calculations used to determine the adverse facts 
available rate in the Preliminary Determination to parties in this 
proceeding, and we made no changes since the Preliminary Determination. 
Thus, no additional disclosure of calculations is necessary.

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    As noted above, the Department found that critical circumstances 
exist with respect to imports of the merchandise under consideration 
from Superinox, Kanzen, and Pantech. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 735(c)(4) of the Act, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') to continue to suspend liquidation of all entries 
of WSPP from Malaysia from Superinox, Kanzen, and Pantech that were 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
date 90 days prior to publication of the Preliminary Determination in 
the Federal Register and require a cash deposit for such entries as 
noted below. Because we did not find that critical circumstances exist 
with respect to exporters or producers in the ``all others'' group, in 
accordance with section 735(c)(1) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to 
continue to suspend liquidation of all other entries of WSPP from 
Malaysia entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination in the 
Federal Register. These suspension of liquidation instructions will 
remain in effect until further notice.
    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(d), the 
Department will instruct CBP to require cash deposits \5\ equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margins indicated in the table above. These 
cash deposit instructions will remain in effect until further notice.

    \5\ See Modification of Regulations Regarding the Practice of 
Accepting Bonds During the Provisional Measures Period in 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations, 76 FR 61042 
(October 3, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

International Trade Commission (``ITC'') Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
ITC of our final affirmative determination of sales at LTFV. Because 
the final determination in this proceeding is affirmative, in 
accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will make its 
final determination as to whether the domestic industry in the United 
States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by 
reason of imports of WSPP from Malaysia no later than 45 days after our 
final determination. If the ITC determines that material injury or 
threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will be 
terminated and all securities posted will be refunded or canceled. If 
the ITC determines that such injury does exist, the Department will 
issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess antidumping 
duties on all imports of the merchandise under investigation entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective 
date of the suspension of liquidation.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders (``APO'')

    This notice also serves as a reminder to the parties subject to APO 
of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary 
information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. 
Timely written notification of return or destruction of APO materials 
or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure 
to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a 
sanctionable violation.
    This determination and notice are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR
