Rmajette on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 EuroChem’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 each importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of such sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If EuroChem’s weighted-average dumping margin continues to be zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., ‘‘{w}here the weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.’’ 6 The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003.7 This clarification will 4 Id., and 19 CFR 351.303 (for general filing requirements). 5 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 6 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews). 7 For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:13 Apr 08, 2015 Jkt 235001 apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by EuroChem for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States.

A list of the issues which parties have raised, and to which we have responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, is attached to this notice as Appendix I.

The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review In the Preliminary Results, we found SGBC/SKF to be the successor-ininterest to SGBC because the information on the record indicated that SGBC/SKF continued to operate as essentially the same entity that was effectively revoked from the order as of June 1, 1994. In reaching this determination, we considered changes in SGBC’s operations covering the period from revocation through August 1, 2012, with respect to several factors, including the following: (1) Management; (2) production facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and (4) customer base. After analyzing the comments received, and for the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results and discussed further in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we continue to find that SGBC/SKF is the successor-ininterest to SGBC. As a result of this determination, we find that SGBC/SKF is entitled to SGBC’s revoked status. Consequently, the Department will apply this determination retroactively and will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, all unliquidated entries entered, or withdrawn from warehouse on or after August 1, 2012, the date of SGBC/SKF’s accession into the SKF Group, in accordance with past practice.11 Notification This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3).

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    In the Preliminary Results, we found SGBC/SKF to be the successor-
in-interest to SGBC because the information on the record indicated 
that SGBC/SKF continued to operate as essentially the same entity that 
was effectively revoked from the order as of June 1, 1994. In reaching 
this determination, we considered changes in SGBC's operations covering 
the period from revocation through August 1, 2012, with respect to 
several factors, including the following: (1) Management; (2) 
production facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and (4) customer 
base. After analyzing the comments received, and for the reasons stated 
in the Preliminary Results and discussed further in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum, we continue to find that SGBC/SKF is the 
successor-in-interest to SGBC. As a result of this determination, we 
find that SGBC/SKF is entitled to SGBC's revoked status. Consequently, 
the Department will apply this determination retroactively and will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate, without 
regard to antidumping duties, all unliquidated entries entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse on or after August 1, 2012, the date of SGBC/
SKF's accession into the SKF Group, in accordance with past 
practice.\11\

question was excluded from the AD order).
