The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we recalculated Hyosung’s and Hyundai’s weighted-average dumping margins for these final results. For Hyosung, we revised our margin program by adjusting Hyosung’s reported U.S. duty expenses for certain sales transactions. We are also including U.S. freight expenses that were excluded in the Preliminary Results and including the entered value of a unit that entered the United States during the POR in our calculation of the assessment rates for entries of LPTs during the POR.8 We made some changes to our calculation programs for Hyundai with respect to oil and certain other expenses. We also used the latest revised databases for U.S. sales and the Cost of Production based on postpreliminary questionnaires and responses.9 As a result of the aforementioned recalculations of Hyosung’s and Hyundai’s weighted-average dumping margins, the weighted-average dumping margin for the three non-selected companies also changed. Final Results of the Review As a result of this review, the Department determines the following weighted-average dumping margins 10 8 See Memorandum from Brian Davis to the File, regarding ‘‘Analysis of Data Submitted by Hyosung Corporation in the Final Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Large Power Transformers from the Republic of Korea; 2012–2013’’ (Hyosung Final Analysis Memorandum), dated March 23, 2014, at section ‘‘Changes from the Preliminary Results,’’ for further information. 9 See Memorandum from David Cordell to the File, regarding ‘‘Analysis of Data Submitted by Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. in the Final Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Large Power Transformers from the Republic of Korea; 2012– 2013’’ (Hyundai Final Analysis Memorandum), dated March 23, 2014, at section ‘‘Changes from the Preliminary Results,’’ for further information. 10 The rate applied to the non-selected companies (i.e., ILJIN, ILJIN Electric, and LSIS) is a weightedaverage percentage margin calculated based on the publicly-ranged U.S. volumes of the two reviewed companies with an affirmative dumping margin, for the period February 16, 2012, through July 31, 2013. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17035 for the period February 16, 2012, through July 31, 2013, are as follows: Manufacturer/exporter Hyosung Corporation .................. Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. .......................................... ILJIN Electric Co., Ltd. ............... ILJIN ........................................... LSIS Co., Ltd. ............................. Weightedaverage margin (percent) 6.43 9.53 8.16 8.16 8.16 Duty Assessment The Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.11 For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Upon issuance of the final results of this administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.5 percent), the Department will issue instructions directly to CBP to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries. To determine whether the duty assessment rates covering the period were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), for each respondent we calculated importer (or customer)specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the amount of dumping calculated for all U.S. sales to that importer or customer and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to that importer (or customer). Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, and the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we apply the assessment rate to the entered value of the importer’s/customer’s entries during the review period. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on See Memorandum to the File titled, ‘‘Large Power Transformers from the Republic of Korea: Final Dumping Margin for Respondents Not Selected for Individual Examination,’’ through Angelica Townshend, Program Manager, dated concurrently with this notice. 11 In these final results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we recalculated 
Hyosung's and Hyundai's weighted-average dumping margins for these 
final results.
    For Hyosung, we revised our margin program by adjusting Hyosung's 
reported U.S. duty expenses for certain sales transactions. We are also 
including U.S. freight expenses that were excluded in the Preliminary 
Results and including the entered value of a unit that entered the 
United States during the POR in our calculation of the assessment rates 
for entries of LPTs during the POR.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Memorandum from Brian Davis to the File, regarding 
``Analysis of Data Submitted by Hyosung Corporation in the Final 
Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order 
on Large Power Transformers from the Republic of Korea; 2012-2013'' 
(Hyosung Final Analysis Memorandum), dated March 23, 2014, at 
section ``Changes from the Preliminary Results,'' for further 
information.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We made some changes to our calculation programs for Hyundai with 
respect to oil and certain other expenses. We also used the latest 
revised databases for U.S. sales and the Cost of Production based on 
post-preliminary questionnaires and responses.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Memorandum from David Cordell to the File, regarding 
``Analysis of Data Submitted by Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. 
in the Final Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping 
Duty Order on Large Power Transformers from the Republic of Korea; 
2012-2013'' (Hyundai Final Analysis Memorandum), dated March 23, 
2014, at section ``Changes from the Preliminary Results,'' for 
further information.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of the aforementioned recalculations of Hyosung's and 
Hyundai's weighted-average dumping margins, the weighted-average 
dumping margin for the three non-selected companies also changed.

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, the Department determines the following 
weighted-average dumping margins \10\ for the period February 16, 2012, 
through July 31, 2013, are as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ The rate applied to the non-selected companies (i.e., 
ILJIN, ILJIN Electric, and LSIS) is a weighted-average percentage 
margin calculated based on the publicly-ranged U.S. volumes of the 
two reviewed companies with an affirmative dumping margin, for the 
period February 16, 2012, through July 31, 2013. See Memorandum to 
the File titled, ``Large Power Transformers from the Republic of 
Korea: Final Dumping Margin for Respondents Not Selected for 
Individual Examination,'' through Angelica Townshend, Program 
Manager, dated concurrently with this notice.

Duty Assessment

    The Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries.\11\ For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-
average dumping margin is above de minimis, we calculated importer-
specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to 
the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Upon issuance of the final results of this 
administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates 
calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 
0.5 percent), the Department will issue instructions directly to CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ In these final results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To determine whether the duty assessment rates covering the period 
were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), for each respondent we calculated importer (or 
customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the amount of 
dumping calculated for all U.S. sales to that importer or customer and 
dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to that 
importer (or customer). Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad 
valorem rate is greater than de minimis, and the respondent has 
reported reliable entered values, we apply the assessment rate to the 
entered value of the importer's/customer's entries during the review 
period.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on

[[Page 17036]]

May 6, 2003.\12\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by the respondent for which it did 
not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see the Automatic Assessment Clarification.

    \12\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) 
(Automatic Assessment Clarification).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this notice for all shipments of subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
publication of these final results, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of 
the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for respondents noted above will be 
the rate established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not 
covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of 
the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company 
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
prior review, or the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of 
the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 29.93 percent, the all-
others rate established in the antidumping investigation.\13\ These 
cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

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 and/or countervailing duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during the POR. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction 
of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).

    Dated: March 23, 2015.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
