Methodology The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Export prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, 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 (‘‘ACCESS’’).2 ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov.

The Department confirmed their certification of no shipment with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’); therefore, the following companies will maintain their rate from the most recent segment in which they participated: Anhui Longhua Bamboo Product Co., Ltd.; Benxi Wood Company; Guangzhou Homebon Timber Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Jiaxing Brilliant Import & Export Co. Ltd..; Pinge Timber Manufacturing (Zhejiang) Co., Ltd.; Power Dekor Group Co., Ltd; Shenyang Senwang Wooden Industry Co., Ltd. Additionally, Dalian Huade Wood Product Co., Ltd. and Zhejiang Fuerjia Wooden Co., Ltd. did not have any qualifying shipments for the Department to review, due to their certification that their only POR shipments underwent review during their respective new shipper reviews. Both companies therefore maintain the dumping margin that was assessed as a result of their respective new shipper reviews.

Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.16 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, the Department will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). In these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in the Final Modification for Reviews.17 Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate we determine in the final results of this review. On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME 15 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). 16 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 17 See Antidumping Proceeding 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 for Reviews.’’).

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 section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above the cash deposit rate will be their respective rate established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then no cash deposit will be required; (2) for previously investigated PRC and nonPRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (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 that for the PRC-wide entity; 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.

    While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). 
Export prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in 
accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market 
economy (``NME'') within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV 
has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, 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 (``ACCESS'').\2\ ACCESS is available to registered users at 
http://access.trade.gov. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is also 
available 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 at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ On November 24, 2014, Enforcement and Compliance changed the 
name of Enforcement and Compliance's AD and CVD Centralized 
Electronic Service System (``IA ACCESS'') to AD and CVD Centralized 
Electronic Service System (``ACCESS''). The Web site location was 
changed from http://iaaccess.trade.gov to http://access.trade.gov. 
The Final Rule changing the references to the Regulations can be 
found at 79 FR 69046 (November 20, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Affiliation

    Based on the evidence presented in Dalian Dajen's questionnaire 
responses, we preliminarily find that Dalian Dajen and HK Artflor 
International Trading Co., Ltd., a Hong Kong trading company, are 
affiliated under sections 771(33)(A) and (G) of the Act. We also 
preliminarily find that Dalian Dajen and Johnson Premium Hardwood 
Flooring Inc., a U.S. reseller of subject merchandise, are affiliated 
under section 771(33)(F) of the Act, and that Dalian Dajen and Zhejiang 
Shiyou Timber Co., Ltd., a separate-rate respondent in this review, are 
not affiliated under section 771(33) of the Act.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Memorandum to Abdelali Elouaradia re: ``Administrative 
Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Multilayered Wood Flooring 
from the People's Republic of China: Dalian Dajen Wood Co., Ltd.: 
Affiliation and Single Entity Status'' (December 31, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department preliminarily determines that the following 
weighted-average dumping margins exist for the POR from December 1, 
2012, through November 30, 2013: \4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ In addition to the companies listed in the table, the 
following companies submitted information on the record 
demonstrating that they did not ship subject merchandise to the 
United States during the POR. The Department confirmed their 
certification of no shipment with U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP''); therefore, the following companies will maintain their 
rate from the most recent segment in which they participated: Anhui 
Longhua Bamboo Product Co., Ltd.; Benxi Wood Company; Guangzhou 
Homebon Timber Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Jiaxing Brilliant Import & 
Export Co. Ltd..; Pinge Timber Manufacturing (Zhejiang) Co., Ltd.; 
Power Dekor Group Co., Ltd; Shenyang Senwang Wooden Industry Co., 
Ltd. Additionally, Dalian Huade Wood Product Co., Ltd. and Zhejiang 
Fuerjia Wooden Co., Ltd. did not have any qualifying shipments for 
the Department to review, due to their certification that their only 
POR shipments underwent review during their respective new shipper 
reviews. Both companies therefore maintain the dumping margin that 
was assessed as a result of their respective new shipper reviews.

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, which will include the results of its analysis 
of issues raised in any briefs, within 120 days of publication of these 
preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review.\16\ The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final 
results of this review. For any individually examined respondent whose 
weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 
percent) in the final results of this review, the Department will 
calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the 
ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the 
importer's examined sales and the total entered value of sales, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). In these preliminary results, the 
Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in 
the Final Modification for Reviews.\17\ Where either the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- 
(or customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties. We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries 
containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the 
PRC-wide rate we determine in the final results of this review.

    On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its 
assessment practice in NME

antidumping duty cases.\18\ 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 section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above the cash deposit rate will be their respective rate 
established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then no cash deposit 
will be required; (2) for previously investigated 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 recent period; (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 that for the PRC-wide entity; 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    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: December 31, 2014.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
