Republic of China: Preliminary Successor-In-Interest 
Determination,'' dated April 10, 2014, at ``Scope of the Order.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

Results, the Department determines that Shandong Linglong is the 
successor-in-interest to Leo Rubber for the purpose of determining 
antidumping duty liability.

Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to 
suspend liquidation and collect a cash deposit rate of 12.83 percent on
