The final rule requires any party, when submitting factual information, to specify under which subsection of 19 CFR 351.102(b)(21) the information is being submitted and, if the information is submitted to rebut, clarify, or correct factual information already on the record, to provide an explanation identifying the information already on the record that the factual information seeks to rebut, clarify, or correct. The final rule also modified 19 CFR 351.301 so that, rather than providing general time limits, there are specific time limits based on the type of factual information being submitted. These modifications are effective for all proceeding segments initiated on or after May 10, 2013, and thus are applicable to this investigation. Interested parties should review the final rule, available at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2013/ 1304frn/2013-08227.txt prior to submitting factual information in this investigation. Revised Extension of Time Limits Regulation On September 20, 2013, the Department modified its regulation concerning the extension of time limits for submissions in AD and CVD proceedings.46 The modification clarifies that parties may request an extension of time limits before a time limit established under 19 CFR part 351 expires, or as otherwise specified by the Secretary. In general, an extension request will be considered untimely if it is filed after the time limit established under Part 351 expires. For submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously, an extension request will be considered untimely if it is filed after 10:00 a.m. on the due date. Examples include but are not limited to: (1) Case and rebuttal briefs, filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309; (2) factual information to value factors under 19 CFR 351.408(c), or to measure the adequacy of remuneration under 19 CFR 351.511(a)(2) filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3) and rebuttal, clarification and correction information filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(iv); (3) comments concerning the selection of a surrogate country and surrogate values and rebuttal; (4) comments concerning U.S. Customs and Border Protection data; and (5) quantity and value questionnaires. Under certain circumstances, the Department may elect to specify a different time limit by which extension requests will be 46 See Extension of Time Limits; Final Rule, 78 FR 57790 (September 20, 2013). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Mar 16, 2015 Jkt 235001 considered untimely for submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously. In such a case, the Department will inform parties in a letter or memorandum setting forth the deadline (including a specified time) by which extension requests must be filed to be considered timely. This modification also requires that an extension request be made in a separate, stand-alone submission, and clarifies the circumstances under which the Department will grant untimely-filed requests for the extension of time limits. These modifications are effective for all segments initiated on or after October 21, 2013, and thus are applicable to this investigation. Interested parties should review Extension of Time Limits; Final Rule, available at http://www.gpo.gov/ fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-09-20/html/201322853.htm, prior to submitting requests to extend time limits in this investigation. Certification Requirements Any party submitting factual information in an AD or CVD proceeding must certify to the accuracy and completeness of that information.47 Parties are hereby reminded that revised certification requirements are in effect for company/government officials, as well as their representatives. Investigations initiated on the basis of petitions filed on or after August 16, 2013, and other segments of any AD or CVD proceedings initiated on or after August 16, 2013, should use the formats for the revised certifications provided at the end of the Final Rule.48 The Department intends to reject factual submissions if the submitting party does not comply with the applicable revised certification requirements.

Appendix I Scope of the Investigation The scope of this investigation covers all forms, sizes and compositions of silicomanganese, except low-carbon silicomanganese, including silicomanganese briquettes, fines, and slag. Silicomanganese is a ferroalloy composed principally of manganese, silicon, and iron, and normally contains much smaller proportions of minor elements, such as carbon, phosphorus, and sulfur. Silicomanganese is sometimes referred to as ferrosilicon manganese. Silicomanganese generally contains by weight not less than 4 percent iron, more than 30 percent manganese, more than 8 percent silicon and not more than 0.2 percent phosphorus. Silicomanganese is properly classifiable under subheading 7202.30.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Low-carbon silicomanganese is excluded from the scope of this investigation. It is sometimes referred to as ferromanganesesilicon. The low-carbon silicomanganese excluded from this investigation is a ferroalloy with the following chemical specifications by weight: minimum 55 percent manganese, minimum 27 percent silicon, minimum 4 percent iron, maximum 0.10 percent phosphorus, maximum 0.10 percent carbon, and maximum 0.05 percent sulfur. Low-carbon silicomanganese is classifiable under HTSUS subheading 7202.30.0000. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes.

For the final results, we continue to find that Jiangsu RC Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu RC) made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value. We also continue to find that Suzhou Guoxin Group Wang Shun Imp. and Exp. Co., Ltd. (Guoxin) is not eligible for a separate rate and remains part of the PRC-wide entity.

We conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order are HSLWs. The product is currently classified under subheading 7318.21.0000, 7318.21.0030, and 7318.21.0090 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).

These changes include changes to the valuation of certain factors of production and calculation programming changes. For further details on the changes we made for these final results, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. PRC-Wide Rate and PRC-Wide Entity For the Preliminary Results, the Department assigned to the PRC-wide entity the rate of 128.63 percent, the rate determined for the PRC-wide entity in this proceeding.4 Based on comments from interested parties in this administrative review, as discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we have calculated a final margin for Jiangsu RC of 192.88 percent, which is also the new rate for the PRC-wide entity.5 In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that Guoxin, which ceased participating in this review, did not demonstrate its eligibility for a separate rate and, therefore, Guoxin is part of the PRC3 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).

In the Preliminary Results we also determined that, while the request for review had been timely withdrawn for Winnsen, Winnsen did not have a separate rate prior to the Preliminary Results. Accordingly, the Department did not rescind the review with respect to Winnsen and it remained part of the PRC-wide entity, which remained under review.6 No party commented on this finding. For the final results, we continue to treat Winnsen as part of the PRC-wide entity. Final Results of the Review As a result of this administrative review, we determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist: Exporter Jiangsu RC Import & Export Co., Ltd. ................................ PRC-wide Rate ......................... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 192.88 192.88 Assessment Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. For customers or importers of Jiangsu RC for which we do not have entered value, we calculated customer/importer-specific antidumping duty assessment amounts based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping duties calculated for the examined sales of subject merchandise to the total sales quantity of those same sales.7 For customers or importers of Jiangsu RC for which we received entered-value 6 See, e.g., Narrow Woven Ribbons With Woven Selvedge From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 47363, 47365 (August 8, 2012), unchanged in Narrow Woven Ribbons With Woven Selvedge From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2010– 2011, 78 FR 10130 (February 13, 2013). As noted in the Preliminary Results, a change in practice with respect to the conditional review of the PRCwide entity is not applicable to this administrative review. See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65964, 65969–70 (November 4, 2013). 7 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). E:\FR\FM\17MRN1.SGM 17MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 51 / Tuesday, March 17, 2015 / Notices information, we have calculated customer/importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates based on customer/importer-specific ad valorem rates in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases.8 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, including, in this case, Guoxin and Winnsen, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the revised PRC-wide rate of 192.88 percent. In addition, for companies for which the Department determined that the 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 PRC-wide rate. We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of these final results of review for all 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 subject merchandise exported by the companies listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in these final results of review for each exporter as listed above; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; (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 shall remain in effect until further notice. 8 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Mar 16, 2015 Jkt 235001 Notification This notice serves as a final 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable violation.

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

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of comments received, we made revisions that 
have changed the results for Jiangsu RC. These changes include changes 
to the valuation of certain factors of production and calculation 
programming changes. For further details on the changes we made for 
these final results, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

PRC-Wide Rate and PRC-Wide Entity

    For the Preliminary Results, the Department assigned to the PRC-
wide entity the rate of 128.63 percent, the rate determined for the 
PRC-wide entity in this proceeding.\4\ Based on comments from 
interested parties in this administrative review, as discussed in the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum, we have calculated a final margin for 
Jiangsu RC of 192.88 percent, which is also the new rate for the PRC-
wide entity.\5\

Republic of China, 58 FR 61859 (November 23, 1993).

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

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that Guoxin, 
which ceased participating in this review, did not demonstrate its 
eligibility for a separate rate and, therefore, Guoxin is part of the 
PRC-wide entity. No party commented on this finding. For the final 
results, we have continued to treat Guoxin as part of the PRC-wide 
entity.
    In the Preliminary Results we also determined that, while the 
request for review had been timely withdrawn for Winnsen, Winnsen did 
not have a separate rate prior to the Preliminary Results. Accordingly, 
the Department did not rescind the review with respect to Winnsen and 
it remained part of the PRC-wide entity, which remained under 
review.\6\ No party commented on this finding. For the final results, 
we continue to treat Winnsen as part of the PRC-wide entity.

the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review. For customers or importers of Jiangsu RC for 
which we do not have entered value, we calculated customer-/importer-
specific antidumping duty assessment amounts based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping duties calculated for the examined sales of 
subject merchandise to the total sales quantity of those same sales.\7\

information, we have calculated customer/importer-specific antidumping 
duty assessment rates based on customer/importer-specific ad valorem 
rates in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

    The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in 
NME cases.\8\ 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, including, in this case, 
Guoxin and Winnsen, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such 
entries at the revised PRC-wide rate of 192.88 percent. In addition, 
for companies for which the Department determined that the 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 PRC-wide rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
date of publication of the final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results of review for all 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 subject merchandise exported by the 
companies listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established in these final results of review for each 
exporter as listed above; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed 
PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate 
rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide 
entity; (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 shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification

    This notice serves as a final 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable 
violation.
    These final results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: March 9, 2015.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
