Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we have made revisions to the margin calculations for Jiheng and Kangtai.10 Separate Rates In our Preliminary Results, we determined that Arch China, Heze, and Zhucheng each demonstrated their eligibility for separate rates status.11 We have not received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsideration of this determination.

Pursuant to this method, we are assigning the rate of 53.15 percent to the non-examined separate rate respondents in the instant review.12 Assessment Rates The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of sales.13 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importerspecific assessment rate is above de 12 See Chlorinated Isocyanurates from the People’s Republic of China; 2011–2012; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 79 FR 4875, 4876 (January 30, 2014) (Seventh Review). 13 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

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 NME-wide rate. 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 NME-wide rate.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we have made 
revisions to the margin calculations for Jiheng and Kangtai.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    In our Preliminary Results, we determined that Arch China, Heze, 
and Zhucheng each demonstrated their eligibility for separate rates 
status.\11\ We have not received any information since the issuance of 
the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsideration of 
this determination. Therefore, the Department continues to find that 
Arch China, Heze, and Zhucheng are each eligible for separate rate 
status.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for 
Import Administration, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary 
Results of the 2011-2012 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: 
Chlorinated Isocyanurates From the People's Republic of China,'' 
(July 17, 2014) at 3-6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist for the POR:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                      Weighted-average
                     Exporter                          dumping margin
                                                        (percentage)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arch Chemicals (China) Co. Ltd.*..................                 53.15
Hebei Jiheng Chemical Co., Ltd....................                  0.00
Juancheng Kangtai Chemical Co., Ltd...............                  0.00
Heze Huayi Chemical Co. Ltd.*.....................                 53.15
Zhucheng Taisheng Chemical Co., Ltd.*.............                 53.15
------------------------------------------------------------------------
* For these final results, we determine that the application of the
  separate rate from the Seventh Review to the non-examined separate
  rate respondents is consistent with our past practice and a reasonable
  method to determine the separate rate in the instant review because
  both of our mandatory respondents received zero margins and none of
  the separate rate companies has its own calculated rate from the
  segment immediately prior to the instant segment. Pursuant to this
  method, we are assigning the rate of 53.15 percent to the non-examined
  separate rate respondents in the instant review.\12\

Assessment Rates
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Chlorinated Isocyanurates from the People's Republic of 
China; 2011-2012; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 79 FR 4875, 4876 (January 30, 2014) (Seventh Review).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 
these final results of this review. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or customer-) specific 
assessment rates for the merchandise subject to this review. For any 
individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin 
is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will calculate 
importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales 
and the total entered value of sales.\13\ We will instruct CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review when the importer-specific assessment rate is above de

[[Page 4541]]

minimis. Where either the 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.

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 NME-wide rate. 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 NME-wide rate. For a 
full discussion of this practice, see Assessment in NME Antidumping 
Proceedings.\14\

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 Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act): (1) For the exporter's listed above, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established in the final results of this review 
(except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, a zero cash deposit rate 
will be required for that company); (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 existing producer/
exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for 
all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be 
eligible for a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-
wide rate of 285.63 percent; \15\ 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(s) that 
supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed regarding these final 
results within five days of the date of publication of this notice in 
this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 that subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 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.
    We are issuing and publishing this administrative review and notice 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: January 21, 2015.
