The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only; the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Extension of Deadlines for Preliminary Results As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, the Department exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from October 1, through October 16, 2013.3 Therefore, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by 16 days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review was February 6, 2014. Additionally, on January 15, 2014, the Department extended the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 90 days, until May 7, 2014.4 Finally, on April 22, 2014, the Department extended the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by an additional 30 days, until June 6, 2014.5 Methodology The Department is conducting this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.214. The Department calculated export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a nonmarket economy (‘‘NME’’) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, the Department calculated normal value in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with these results and hereby adopted by this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and 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 https:// iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at https://enforcement.trade.gov/frn. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this new shipper review. For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).10 E:\FR\FM\12JNN1.SGM 12JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 113 / Thursday, June 12, 2014 / Notices rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by these new shipper reviews when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by Bonn Flooring, Fuerjia and Huade for these new shipper reviews, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that the exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.11 The final results of these new shipper reviews shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of these reviews and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of these new shipper reviews for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that rate established in the final results of these new shipper reviews (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then a zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing producer/ exporter-specific combination rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 11 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:18 Jun 11, 2014 Jkt 232001 deposit rate will be that for the PRCwide entity, or 58.84 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC producer/exporter combination that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214. Dated: June 6, 2014.

Extension of Deadlines for Preliminary Results

    As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, the Department exercised its discretion to 
toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal 
Government from October 1, through October 16, 2013.\3\ Therefore, all 
deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by 16 
days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review 
was February 6, 2014. Additionally, on January 15, 2014, the Department 
extended the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this 
review by 90 days, until May 7, 2014.\4\ Finally, on April 22, 2014, 
the Department extended the time period for issuing the preliminary 
results of this review by an additional 30 days, until June 6, 2014.\5\

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

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 351.214. The Department calculated 
export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the 
PRC is a nonmarket economy (``NME'') within the meaning of section 
771(18) of the Act, the Department calculated normal value in 
accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, dated 
concurrently with these results and hereby adopted by this notice. The 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and 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 https://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the 
main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version 
of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the 
Internet at https://enforcement.trade.gov/frn. The signed Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

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

    The Department intends to issue the final results of these new 
shipper reviews, which will include the results of its analysis of 
issues raised in any such comments, within 90 days of publication of 
these preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of these new shipper reviews, the 
Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of the final results of this new shipper 
review. For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-
average dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-
specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to 
the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

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

[[Page 33725]]

    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by these new shipper reviews when the 
importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of 
this review is above de minimis. Where either the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-
specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. 
The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME 
cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were 
not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by Bonn Flooring, 
Fuerjia and Huade for these new shipper reviews, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In 
addition, if the Department determines that the exporter under review 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final results of these new shipper reviews shall be the basis 
for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise 
covered by the final results of these reviews and for future deposits 
of estimated duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of these new shipper reviews for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that rate established in the final results of these new shipper reviews 
(except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then a zero cash deposit 
will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and 
non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a 
prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue 
to be the existing producer/exporter-specific combination rate; (3) for 
all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the 
PRC-wide entity, or 58.84 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC producer/exporter 
combination that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214.

    Dated: June 6, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
