2010), remains dispositive.
    A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the 
Decision Memorandum.

Methodology

    We conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For each of the subsidy 
programs found countervailable, we have determined that there is a 
subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution by an 
``authority'' that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that 
the subsidy is specific.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See sections 771(5)(B)and (D) of the Act regarding financial 
contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and 
section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In making these findings, we relied on facts available and, because 
Bestpak and the Government of the PRC did not act to the best of their 
ability to respond to our requests for information, we have drawn 
adverse inferences in selecting from among the facts otherwise 
available.\3\ For further information, see ``Use of Facts Otherwise 
Available and Adverse Inferences'' in the Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Decision Memorandum.

Changes from the Preliminary Results

    No party submitted comments with respect to the Preliminary 
Results. Because we have identified more appropriate information for 
use as adverse facts available, we have revised the net subsidy rate 
for Bestpak accordingly. For a full description of that updated 
information and accompanying changes, see the Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of the Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated an 
individual subsidy rate for Bestpak for the period January 1, 2012, 
through December 31, 2012.
    We find that the net subsidy rate for Bestpak is as follows:

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

Disclosure and Public Comment

    All calculations for these final results are contained in the 
Decision Memorandum and have been thereby disclosed.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ 19 CFR 351.224(b) calls for the Department to disclose 
calculations performed in connection with the final results of an 
administrative review within five days after the publication of the 
final results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Consistent with section 751(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(2), upon issuance of the final results, we shall determine, 
and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
countervailing duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of these final results of this review in the Federal 
Register.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    We intend to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of 
countervailing duties in the amount shown above for Bestpak. For all 
non-reviewed firms, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect cash 
deposits of estimated countervailing duties at the most recent company-
specific or all-others rate applicable to the company. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
    This administrative review and notice are in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.
