Download as PDF 72166 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 234 / Friday, December 5, 2014 / Notices Background On October 31, 2011, the Department issued AR3 Final Results.6 Cherishmet and Shanxi DMD, exporters of subject merchandise, timely filed complaints with the Court. Albemarle Corporation (‘‘Albemarle’’), a U.S. importer of subject merchandise, and Ningxia Huahui Activated Carbon Co., Ltd. (‘‘Huahui’’), an exporter of subject merchandise, also timely filed a complaint with the Court. Together, these parties challenged four aspects of the Department’s final results: (1) The surrogate value for Calgon Tianjin’s carbonized material; (2) the surrogate values for Calgon Tianjin’s coal and fine by-products; (3) the dumping margins assigned to Huahui, Shanxi DMD, Ningxia Guanghua, and Beijing Pacific, which were not selected for individual examination in the review; and (4) the use of a per-unit assessment rate for Shanxi DMD’s entries. On August 15, 2013, the Court remanded the Department’s AR3 Final Results and instructed the Department to reconsider each of these issues.7 On January 9, 2014, the Department filed the Remand with the Court. First, the Department continued to calculate Calgon Tianjin’s surrogate value for carbonized material with the same data that it used in AR3 Final Results.8 Second, the Department recalculated Calgon Tianjin’s surrogate values for coal and fine by-products by capping those values at the value assigned to their main input, carbonized material.9 The Department’s recalculation of the by-products surrogate values continued to yield a de minimis weighted-average dumping margin for Calgon Tianjin.10 Third, and under protest, the Department averaged the zero and de minimis rates calculated for the two mandatory respondents in this administrative review (i.e., Jacobi Carbons AB and Calgon Tianjin) and assigned the resulting zero dumping margin to Ningxia Guanghua, Beijing Pacific, and Shanxi DMD.11 Finally, the Department determined that the issue concerning the use of a per-unit assessment rate for Shanxi DMD’s wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 6 Id. 7 See Albemarle Corp. v. United States, 931 F. Supp. 2d 1280 (CIT 2013). The Court reserved judgment on the dumping margin assigned to Huahui, which was different from the margin that the Department assigned to Shanxi DMD, Ningxia Guanghua, and Beijing Pacific. Id. It explained that the Department could, but was not required to, reconsider Huahui’s margin on remand. Id. 8 See Remand at 3–8. 9 Id. at 10. 10 Id. 11 Id. at 10–13.

The Court’s November 24, 2014, judgment sustaining the Remand constitutes a final decision of the Court that is not in harmony with the Department’s AR3 Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirement of Timken. Cash Deposit Requirements The cash deposit rate for Cherishmet will remain the respondent-specific rate established for the subsequent and most-recent period during which the respondent was reviewed, which is $0.04 per kilogram.15 The cash deposit rate for the PRC-wide rate, which now includes Shanxi DMD, will remain the PRC-wide entity rate established for the subsequent and most-recent period during which the PRC-wide entity was reviewed, which is 2.42 U.S. dollars per kilogram.16 Notification to Interested Parties This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(e), 751(a)(1), and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

Where either a 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. For any individually examined respondent and its importer(s) where neither of those situations is the case, in the final results of this review we will calculate an importer-specific per-unit assessment rate by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to the importer by the total sales quantity associated with those sales. On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME antidumping duty cases.10 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for merchandise that was not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, but that entered under the case number of that exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined exporter’s cash deposit rate), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, pursuant to this refinement, 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 will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review 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 exporters listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then the cash deposit rate will be zero for that exporter); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the PRC-wide entity, 76.72 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. 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)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213. Dated: November 28, 2014. Ronald K.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is conducting 
an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene 
terephthalate film, sheet, and strip (``PET film'') from the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC''). The period of review (``POR'') is November 
1, 2012, through October 31, 2013. The Department initiated the review 
with respect to five companies. We preliminarily find that two of the 
mandatory respondents, Shaoxing Xiangyu Green Packing Co., Ltd. and 
Tianjin Wanhua Co., Ltd. made sales of subject merchandise at less than 
normal value (``NV''). We are rescinding the review with respect to 
Huangshi Yucheng Trade Co. Ltd. (``Yucheng''). Further, we 
preliminarily find that

[[Page 72167]]

Fuwei Films (Shandong) Co., Ltd. (``Fuwei Films'') and Sichuan Dongfang 
Insulating Material Co., Ltd., (``Dongfang''), did not have any 
reviewable transactions during the POR. Interested parties are invited 
to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Effective Date: December 5, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are all gauges of raw, pre-
treated, or primed PET film, whether extruded or co-extruded.\1\ PET 
film is classifiable under subheading 3920.62.00.90 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our 
written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

Countervailing Duty Operations to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary 
for Enforcement and Compliance, dated concurrently with this notice 
(``Preliminary Decision Memorandum'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on our analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') information and information provided by Fuwei Films and 
Dongfang, we preliminarily determine that Fuwei Films and Dongfang did 
not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. For additional 
information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Partial Rescission

an administrative review of subject merchandise exported by Yucheng. 
Subsequently, on February 12, 2014, Now Plastics timely withdrew its 
request for an administrative review of Yucheng's exports. No other 
parties requested a review of Yucheng. The Department, pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.213 (d)(1), is therefore rescinding this administrative review 
with respect to Yucheng.

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). We 
calculated export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act.

conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is hereby 
adopted by this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public

entries covered by this review.\9\ The Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of 
the final results of this review. Where either a 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. 
For any individually examined respondent and its importer(s) where 
neither of those situations is the case, in the final results of this 
review we will calculate an importer-specific per-unit assessment rate 
by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to the 
importer by the total sales quantity associated with those sales.

    On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its 
assessment practice in NME antidumping duty cases.\10\ Pursuant to this 
refinement in practice, for merchandise that was not reported in the 
U.S. sales databases submitted by an exporter individually examined 
during this review, but that entered under the case number of that 
exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined exporter's cash deposit 
rate), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at 
the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, pursuant to this refinement, 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 will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), for a full 
discussion of this practice.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review 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 exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin established in the final results of this review 
(except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then the cash deposit rate 
will be zero for that exporter); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific 
rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have 
not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate for the PRC-wide entity, 76.72 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.

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)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: November 28, 2014.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
