Helical Spring Lock Washers From the People's Republic of China: Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012-2013, 21208-21209 [2015-08894]

Download as PDF 21208 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 74 / Friday, April 17, 2015 / Notices section 733(d) and (f) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224. Because the amended rate for Hoifat results in a reduced cash deposit rate, the rate for Hoifat will be effective retroactively to April 1, 2015, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination. Amended Preliminary Determination As a result of this amended preliminary determination, we have revised the preliminary estimated weighted-average dumping margin for Hoifat as follows: Weighted-average margin (percent) Producer Zhongda United Holding Group Co., Ltd ...............................

Zhejiang Limai Metal Products Co., Ltd ................................. HoiFat (NingBo) Office Facilities Co., Ltd .............................. ................................................................................................. Postponement of the Final Determination In the Preliminary Determination, the Department stated that it would make its final determination for this antidumping duty investigation no later than 75 days after the preliminary determination. Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (‘‘the Act’’) provides that a final determination may be postponed until not later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an affirmative determination, a request for such postponement is made by exporters who account for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a negative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by petitioner. In addition, section 351.210(e)(2) of the Department’s regulations require that requests by respondents for postponement of a final determination be accompanied by a request for extension of provisional measures from a four month period to not more than six months. On April 7, 2015, Zhongda United Holding Group Co., Ltd., one of the two mandatory respondents in this investigation, requested a 60-day extension of the final determination and extension of the provisional measures. Thus, because our amended preliminary determination is affirmative, and the respondent requesting a postponement of the final determination and an extension of the provisional measures accounts for a significant proportion of exports of boltless steel shelving, and no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are postponing the deadline for the final determination by 60 days until August 14, 2015, based on the publication date of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:08 Apr 16, 2015 Jkt 235001 Preliminary Determination International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 733(f) of the Act, we notified the International Trade Commission of our amended preliminary determination. This amended preliminary determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 733(f) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e). Dated: April 10, 2015. Ronald K.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 9, 2015, the Department disclosed to interested parties 
its calculations for the Final Results.\2\ On March 16, 2015 we 
received a ministerial error allegation from Jiangsu RC Import & Export 
Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu RC).\3\

    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

Ministerial Error

    Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act), and 19 
CFR 351.224(f) define a ``ministerial error'' as an error ``in 
addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error 
resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any 
similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.'' We have analyzed Jiangsu RC's ministerial error comments 
and have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made ministerial errors in our calculations 
for the Final Results. For the Final Results, the Department identified 
and valued five labor inputs to use in calculating the surrogate value 
for Jiangsu RC.\5\ In calculating the surrogate value, the Department 
inadvertently double-counted two of these five labor inputs.\6\

we are amending the Final Results. The revised weighted-average dumping

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed for these amended final 
results to interested parties within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    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. 
For customers or importers of Jiangsu RC for which we received entered-
value 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. 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, 
Suzhou Guoxin Group Wang Shun Imp. and Exp. Co., Ltd. (Guoxin) and 
Winnsen Industry Co., Ltd. (Winnsen), the Department will instruct CBP 
to liquidate such entries at the revised PRC-wide rate of 189.81 
percent.\8\ 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 these 
amended final results of review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The Department determined that Guoxin is not eligible for a 
separate rate and that Winnsen, whose request for a review was 
timely withdrawn, had not been assigned a separate rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 amended final results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930 Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(f).
