The instant review will continue with respect to Dongyuan, Feidong, Newecan, New Shichu, Shunde Native Produce, Superte, Yingao, Yuyao, Zhaoshun, and Zhongshan Silk.7 Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the company for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). As the company for which this review is rescinded is also subject to an ongoing new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on drawn stainless steel sinks from the PRC covering the period October 4, 2012, through October 14, 2013, the Department’s assessment instructions as a result of this rescission will only cover the period October 15, 2013, through March 31, 2014. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Notification to Importers This notice serves as the only 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. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of 7 On August 27 and August 28, 2014, Zhongshan Silk submitted withdrawals of its request for review through the Department’s electronic filing system IA ACCESS.

SUMMARY: On August 15, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) published its initiation and preliminary results of a changed circumstances review 1 of the antidumping duty (‘‘AD’’) order on multilayered wood flooring (‘‘MLWF’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).2 The Department preliminarily determined that Linyi Youyou Wood Co., Ltd. (‘‘Youyou’’) is the successor-ininterest to Shanghai Lizhong Wood Products Co., Ltd./The Lizhong Industry Limited Company of Shanghai (‘‘Lizhong’’) for purposes of the antidumping duty order on multilayered wood flooring from the PRC and, as such, is entitled to Lizhong’s cash deposit rate with respect to entries of subject merchandise. We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. As no parties AGENCY: 1 See Initiation and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People’s Republic of China, 79 FR 48117 (August 15, 2014) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). 2 See Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People’s Republic of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 76 FR 76690 (December 8, 2011) (‘‘Order’’).

Background On August 15, 2014, the Department made a preliminary finding that Youyou is the successor-in-interest to Lizhong, and is entitled to Lizhong’s cash deposit rate with respect to entries of merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order on multilayered wood flooring from the PRC. We also provided interested parties 14 days from the date of publication of the Preliminary Results to submit comments in accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii). No parties submitted comments. Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review Because no party submitted comments opposing the Department’s Preliminary Results, and because the record contains no other information or evidence that calls into question the Preliminary Results, the Department determines that Youyou is the successor-in-interest to Lizhong, and is entitled to Lizhong’s cash deposit rate with respect to entries of merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order on multilayered wood flooring from the PRC. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Order Multilayered wood flooring is composed of an assembly of two or more layers or plies of wood veneer(s) in combination with a core. The several layers, along with the core, are glued or otherwise bonded together to form a final assembled product. Multilayered wood flooring is often referred to by other terms, e.g., ‘‘engineered wood flooring’’ or ‘‘plywood flooring.’’ Regardless of the particular terminology, all products that meet the description set forth herein are intended for inclusion within the definition of subject merchandise. All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise, without regard to: dimension (overall thickness, thickness of face ply, thickness of back ply, thickness of core, and thickness of inner plies; width; and length); wood species VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Sep 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 used for the face, back and inner veneers; core composition; and face grade. Multilayered wood flooring included within the definition of subject merchandise may be unfinished (i.e., without a finally finished surface to protect the face veneer from wear and tear) or ‘‘prefinished’’ (i.e., a coating applied to the face veneer, including, but not exclusively, oil or oil-modified or water-based polyurethanes, ultraviolet light cured polyurethanes, wax, epoxy-ester finishes, moisture-cured urethanes and acid-curing formaldehyde finishes). The veneers may be also soaked in an acrylic-impregnated finish. All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise regardless of whether the face (or back) of the product is smooth, wire brushed, distressed by any method or multiple methods, or hand-scraped. In addition, all multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise regardless of whether or not it is manufactured with any interlocking or connecting mechanism (for example, tongue-and-groove construction or locking joints). All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of the subject merchandise regardless of whether the product meets a particular industry or similar standard. The core of multilayered wood flooring may be composed of a range of materials, including but not limited to hardwood or softwood veneer, particleboard, medium-density fiberboard, high-density fiberboard (‘‘HDF’’), stone and/or plastic composite, or strips of lumber placed edge-to-edge. Multilayered wood flooring products generally, but not exclusively, may be in the form of a strip, plank, or other geometrical patterns (e.g., circular, hexagonal). All multilayered wood flooring products are included within this definition regardless of the actual or nominal dimensions or form of the product. Specifically excluded from the scope are cork flooring and bamboo flooring, regardless of whether any of the sub-surface layers of either flooring are made from wood. Also excluded is laminate flooring. Laminate flooring consists of a top wear layer sheet not made of wood, a decorative paper layer, a core-layer of HDF, and a stabilizing bottom layer.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background The antidumping duty order on small diameter graphite electrodes from the PRC published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2009.1 Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), we received a timely request for a new shipper review of the order from Xuzhou Jianglong Carbon Products Co., 1 See Antidumping Duty Order: Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the People’s Republic of China, 74 FR 8775 (February 26, 2009) (SDGE Order). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Sep 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 Ltd. (Jianglong).2 Jianglong certified that it is both the producer and exporter of the subject merchandise upon which the request was based.3 Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), Jianglong certified that it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (POI).4 In addition, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Jianglong certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer who exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, including those respondents not individually examined during the POI.5 As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Jianglong also certified that its export activities were not controlled by the government of the PRC.6 In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2), Jianglong submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which it first shipped subject merchandise for export to the United States; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.7 Period of Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(B) of the Act, the period of review (POR) for new shipper reviews initiated in the month immediately following the semi-annual anniversary month will be the six-month period immediately preceding the semiannual anniversary month. Therefore, under this order, the POR is February 1, 2014, through July 31, 2014. However, the Department has used its discretion to extend the POR for Jianglong’s new shipper review by one month, making the POR February 1, 2014, through August 31, 2014.8 2 See Jianglong’s new shipper request dated August 29, 2014. 3 See Jianglong’s new shipper request at Exhibit 1. 4 Id. 5 Id. 6 Id. 7 Jianglong’s new shipper request at Exhibit 1 and Jianglong’s new shipper request at Exhibit 2. 8 When the sale of the subject merchandise occurs within the POR specified by the Department’s regulations but the entry occurs after the POR, the specified POR may be extended unless it would be likely to prevent the completion of the review within the time limits set by the Department’s regulations. See 19 CFR 351.214(f)(2)(ii). Additionally, the preamble to the Department’s regulations states that both the entry and the sale should occur during the POR, but that under ‘‘appropriate’’ circumstances the Department has the flexibility to extend the POR. See Antidumping PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Initiation of New Shipper Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), the Department finds that the request from Jianglong meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a new shipper review for shipments of small diameter graphite electrodes from the PRC produced and exported by Jianglong.9 The Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this new shipper review no later than 180 days from the date of initiation and final results of the review no later than 90 days after the date the preliminary results are issued.10 It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economy countries, to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to Jianglong which will include a section requesting information concerning its eligibility for a separate rate. The new shipper review of Jianglong will be rescinded if the Department determines that Jianglong has not demonstrated that it is eligible for a separate rate. We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to allow, at the option of the importer, the posting, until the completion of the review, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of the subject merchandise from Jianglong in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Jianglong certified that it produced and exported subject merchandise, the sale of which is the basis for the request for a new shipper review, we will apply the bonding privilege to Jianglong only for subject merchandise which was produced and exported by Jianglong. To assist in its analysis of the bona fides of Jianglong’s sales, upon initiation of this new shipper review, the Department will require Jianglong to Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27319–27320 (May 19, 1997). In this instance, Jianglong’s sale of subject merchandise was made during the POR specified by the Department’s regulations but the shipment entered after the end of that POR. The Department finds that extending the POR to capture this entry would not prevent the completion of the review within the time limits set by the Department’s regulations. 9 See the memorandum to the file entitled ‘‘Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation Checklist for Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review of Xuzhou Jianglong Carbon Products Co., Ltd.’’ dated concurrently with this notice. 10 See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.

Background

    On August 15, 2014, the Department made a preliminary finding that 
Youyou is the successor-in-interest to Lizhong, and is entitled to 
Lizhong's cash deposit rate with respect to entries of merchandise 
subject to the antidumping duty order on multilayered wood flooring 
from the PRC. We also provided interested parties 14 days from the date 
of publication of the Preliminary Results to submit comments in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii). No parties submitted 
comments.

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    Because no party submitted comments opposing the Department's 
Preliminary Results, and because the record contains no other 
information or evidence that calls into question the Preliminary 
Results, the Department determines that Youyou is the successor-in-
interest to Lizhong, and is entitled to Lizhong's cash deposit rate 
with respect to entries of merchandise subject to the antidumping duty 
order on multilayered wood flooring from the PRC.

Scope of the Order

    Multilayered wood flooring is composed of an assembly of two or 
more layers or plies of wood veneer(s) in combination with a core. The 
several layers, along with the core, are glued or otherwise bonded 
together to form a final assembled product. Multilayered wood flooring 
is often referred to by other terms, e.g., ``engineered wood flooring'' 
or ``plywood flooring.'' Regardless of the particular terminology, all 
products that meet the description set forth herein are intended for 
inclusion within the definition of subject merchandise.
    All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of 
subject merchandise, without regard to: dimension (overall thickness, 
thickness of face ply, thickness of back ply, thickness of core, and 
thickness of inner plies; width; and length); wood species used for the 
face, back and inner veneers; core composition; and face grade. 
Multilayered wood flooring included within the definition of subject 
merchandise may be unfinished (i.e., without a finally finished surface 
to protect the face veneer from wear and tear) or ``prefinished'' 
(i.e., a coating applied to the face veneer, including, but not 
exclusively, oil or oil-modified or water-based polyurethanes, ultra-
violet light cured polyurethanes, wax, epoxy-ester finishes, moisture-
cured urethanes and acid-curing formaldehyde finishes). The veneers may 
be also soaked in an acrylic-impregnated finish. All multilayered wood 
flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise 
regardless of whether the face (or back) of the product is smooth, wire 
brushed, distressed by any method or multiple methods, or hand-scraped. 
In addition, all multilayered wood flooring is included within the 
definition of subject merchandise regardless of whether or not it is 
manufactured with any interlocking or connecting mechanism (for 
example, tongue-and-groove construction or locking joints). All 
multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of the 
subject merchandise regardless of whether the product meets a 
particular industry or similar standard.
    The core of multilayered wood flooring may be composed of a range 
of materials, including but not limited to hardwood or softwood veneer, 
particleboard, medium-density fiberboard, high-density fiberboard 
(``HDF''), stone and/or plastic composite, or strips of lumber placed 
edge-to-edge.
    Multilayered wood flooring products generally, but not exclusively, 
may be in the form of a strip, plank, or other geometrical patterns 
(e.g., circular, hexagonal). All multilayered wood flooring products 
are included within this definition regardless of the actual or nominal 
dimensions or form of the product. Specifically excluded from the scope 
are cork flooring and bamboo flooring, regardless of whether any of the
