Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 68 / Thursday, April 9, 2015 / Notices written briefs, within 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, unless extended, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If CP Kelco’s weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis in the final results of this review, we 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 such sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If CP Kelco’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to dumping margins.7 The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003.8 This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by CP Kelco for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review.

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. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: April 2, 2015. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement & Compliance.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 28, 1994, the Department published the Order on pencils from the PRC.5 On July 18, 2013, the Department revoked the Order on pencils from the PRC with respect to pencils exported by Beijing Dixon.6 On November 27, 2014, Beijing Dixon requsted that the Department conduct a CCR pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 19 CFR 351.216(b), and 19 CFR 351.221, to determine whether it is the successorin-interest to Beijing Dixon for purposes of the Order.7 On February 26, 2015, the Department concurrently initiated and published the Preliminary Results of the CCR of the antidumping duty Order on pencils exported by Beijing Dixon.8 We invited comments from interested parties, but no party commented on the Preliminary Results or requested a hearing.

Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection As a result of this determination, the Department finds that entries of subject merchandise exported by Beijing Dixon as currently structured should receive the same antidumping duty treatment with respect to cased pencils as its predecessor-in-interest. Accordingly, the Department will continue to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate entries for Beijing Dixon without regard to antidumping duties.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On December 28, 1994, the Department published the Order on pencils 
from the PRC.\5\ On July 18, 2013, the Department revoked the Order on 
pencils from the PRC with respect to pencils exported by Beijing 
Dixon.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Order.
    \6\ See Revocation and accompanying IDM.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On November 27, 2014, Beijing Dixon requsted that the Department 
conduct a CCR pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (the Act), 19 CFR 351.216(b), and 19 CFR 351.221, to 
determine whether it is the successor-in-interest to Beijing Dixon for 
purposes of the Order.\7\ On February 26, 2015, the Department 
concurrently initiated and published the Preliminary Results of the CCR 
of the antidumping duty Order on pencils exported by Beijing Dixon.\8\ 
We invited comments from interested parties, but no party commented on 
the Preliminary Results or requested a hearing. This CCR is being 
conducted in accordance with section pursuant to section 751(b) of the 
Act, 19 CFR 351.216, and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

November 27, 2014, ``Request for Changed Circumstances Review 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216 on behalf of Dixon Ticonderoga Company.''
    \8\ See Prelilminary Results and Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order includes pencils from the PRC. 
Pencils are currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTSUS) subheading 9609.1010. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written product description is dispositive.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    Because no interested parties submitted comments on the 
Department's Preliminary Results, and because there is no other 
information or evidence on the record that calls into question the 
Preliminary Results, the Department adopts the reasoning and findings 
of fact outlined in the Prelilminary Results and Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum, and determines that Beijing Dixon is the successor-in-
interest to Beijing Dixon at the time of the Revocation.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Preliminary Results, 80 FR at 10457.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Application of the Revocation of the Order

    As explained in the Preliminary Resuts and the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum, the Revocation of the antidumping duty Order with respect 
to Beijing Dixon, as that entity existed at the time of Revocation, 
continues to apply to Beijing Dixon as currenly structured.

Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection

    As a result of this determination, the Department finds that 
entries of subject merchandise exported by Beijing Dixon as currently 
structured should receive the same antidumping duty treatment with 
respect to cased pencils as its predecessor-in-interest. Accordingly, 
the Department will continue to instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection to liquidate entries for Beijing Dixon without regard to 
antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to an 
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, 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. See 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Failure to comply with the 
regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. See 19 
CFR part 354.
    These final results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.216(e).
