Assessment Rates In accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews,10 we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate the entries pertaining to these reviews without regard to antidumping duties because the weighted-average dumping margin for each respondent is zero or de minimis. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by companies selected for individual examination in these reviews for which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the country-specific all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of these reviews. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements Because we revoked the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan and the United Kingdom effective September 15, 2011, no cash deposits for estimated Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification). antidumping duties on future entries of subject merchandise will be required.11 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 Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. 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 the 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. These final results of administrative reviews are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: June 13, 2014.

Ministerial Errors Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.224(f) define a ‘‘ministerial error’’ as an error ‘‘in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.’’ After analyzing the ministerial error comments and rebuttal comments, we determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made ministerial errors in our calculation for the Final Results. For a detailed discussion of the alleged ministerial errors, as well as the Department’s analysis, see Memorandum to Lynn Fischer Fox, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy Furniture’’), Shanghai New Sihe Wood Co., Ltd., Shanghai Shenlin Corporation and Nanjing Minglin Wooden Industry Co.

A list of the ministerial error allegations that parties raised and to which we responded in the Ministerial Error Memorandum follows as an appendix to this notice. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results for Fine Furniture. The revised weighted-average dumping margin for Fine Furniture is detailed below. Fine Furniture was the only mandatory respondent with a weighted-average dumping margin above de minimis; therefore, the separate rate respondents were assigned a weighted-average dumping margin equal to that of Fine Furniture.4 Consequently, we also revised the weighted-average dumping margin for the separate rate respondents. The weighted-average dumping margin for the PRC-wide entity is not changing as a result of these amended final results.

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the amended final results of this administrative review. For Armstrong, Fine Furniture, and Minglin, the Department calculated importer-specific assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of those sales. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent). 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. For all separate rate respondents, the Department will instruct CBP to 5 The following companies are collectively known as The Fusong Jinlong Group (‘‘Fusong Jinlong Group’’): Dalian Qianqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd.; Fusong Jinlong Wooden Group Co., Ltd.; Fusong Jinqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd.; and Fusong Qianqiu Wooden Products Co., Ltd. 6 The following companies were named in the Initiation Notice but did not submit a certification of no shipment, separate rate application or separate rate certification; therefore the Department has determined that they are part of the PRC-wide entity: Baiying Furniture Manufacturer Co., Ltd.; Dazhuang Floor Co.

On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the rate for the NME-wide entity. In addition, if the Department determines that an 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 rate for the NME-wide entity.7 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective on any entries made after the date of publication of these amended final results for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the amended final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters identified above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to their weighted-average dumping margin in these amended final results of review; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that received a separate rate in a previously completed segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporterspecific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 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 exporter that supplied that nonPRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 35317 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 has occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a 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, 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 violation which is subject to sanction. These amended final results are published in accordance with sections 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: June 16, 2014. Lynn Fischer Fox, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Negotiations.

Ministerial Errors

    Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), 
and 19 CFR 351.224(f) define a ``ministerial error'' as an error ``in 
addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error 
resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any 
similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.'' After analyzing the ministerial error comments and 
rebuttal comments, we determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made ministerial errors in our 
calculation for the Final Results. For a detailed discussion of the 
alleged ministerial errors, as well as the Department's analysis, see 
Memorandum to Lynn Fischer Fox, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy 
and Negotiations from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ``Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review: Final Results of the 2011-2012 Antidumping 
Administrative Review of Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People's 
Republic of China: Allegations of Ministerial Errors,'' dated 
concurrently with this notice which is hereby adopted by this notice. 
The Ministerial Error 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 Ministerial Error Memorandum can be accessed directly on the 
Internet at https://enforcement.trade.gov/frn. The signed Ministerial 
Error Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Ministerial Error 
Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the ministerial error 
allegations that parties raised and to which we responded in the 
Ministerial Error Memorandum follows as an appendix to this notice.
    In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), 
we are amending the Final Results for Fine Furniture. The revised 
weighted-average dumping margin for Fine Furniture is detailed below. 
Fine Furniture was the only mandatory respondent with a weighted-
average dumping margin above de minimis; therefore, the separate rate 
respondents were assigned a weighted-average dumping margin equal to 
that of Fine Furniture.\4\ Consequently, we also revised the weighted-
average dumping margin for the separate rate respondents. The weighted-
average dumping margin for the PRC-wide entity is not changing as a 
result of these amended final results.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these amended 
final results to interested parties within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

    \5\ The following companies are collectively known as The Fusong 
Jinlong Group (``Fusong Jinlong Group''): Dalian Qianqiu Wooden 
Product Co., Ltd.; Fusong Jinlong Wooden Group Co., Ltd.; Fusong 
Jinqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd.; and Fusong Qianqiu Wooden Products 
Co., Ltd.
    \6\ The following companies were named in the Initiation Notice 
but did not submit a certification of no shipment, separate rate 
application or separate rate certification; therefore the Department 
has determined that they are part of the PRC-wide entity: Baiying 
Furniture Manufacturer Co., Ltd.; Dazhuang Floor Co. (dba Dasso 
Industrial Group Co., Ltd.); Dunhua Jisheng Wood Industry Co., Ltd; 
Fu Lik Timber (HK) Co., Ltd.; Furnco International (HK) Company 
Limited; Fusong Qianqiu Wooden Group Co., Ltd.; Guangdong Jiasheng 
Timber Industry Co., Ltd.; Guanghzhou Panyu Shatou Trading Co., 
Ltd.; Huzhou Fuma Wood Bus. Co., Ltd.; Jiazing Brilliant Import & 
Export Co., Ltd.; Puli Trading Co., Ltd.; Sennorwell International

AnJi XinFeng Bamboo & Wood Co., Ltd.; Zhejiang Haoyun Wood Co., 
Ltd.; Zhejiang Jeson Wood Co., Ltd.; and Zhejiang Jiechen Wood 
Industry Co., Ltd. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 
FR 6291 (January 30, 2013); see also Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for 
Revocation in Part, 78 FR 13633 (February 28, 2013) (``Initiation 
Notice'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review. The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the amended 
final results of this administrative review.
    For Armstrong, Fine Furniture, and Minglin, the Department 
calculated importer-specific assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales 
and the total entered value of those sales. We will instruct CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review when the importer-specific assessment rate is not zero or de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent). 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.
    For all separate rate respondents, the Department will instruct CBP 
to liquidate all appropriate entries at an ad valorem rate equal to 
weighted-average dumping margin for each respondent listed in the 
amended final results of this administrative review.
    On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its 
assessment practice in non-market economy (``NME'') cases. Pursuant to 
this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the 
U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined 
during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such 
entries at the rate for the NME-wide entity. In addition, if the 
Department determines that an 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 rate for the NME-wide entity.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective on any 
entries made after the date of publication of these amended final 
results for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 
date of the amended final results of this administrative review, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
identified above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to their 
weighted-average dumping margin in these amended final results of 
review; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 
exporters that received a separate rate in a previously completed 
segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled a separate 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 
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 exporter that supplied that 
non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also 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 has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a 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, 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 violation which is subject to sanction.
    These amended final results are published in accordance with 
sections 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
