3683, and (202) 482-1690, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 24, 2015, the Department published the Preliminary 
Results. The POR is May 1, 2013 through April 30, 2014. We invited 
interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. We received 
no comments.
    The Department conducted this administrative review in accordance 
with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is PSF. PSF is defined as 
synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed or otherwise processed for 
spinning, of polyesters measuring 3.3 decitex (3 denier, inclusive) or 
more in diameter. This merchandise is cut to lengths varying from one 
inch (25 mm) to five inches (127 mm). The merchandise subject to the 
order may be coated, usually with a silicon or other finish, or not 
coated. PSF is generally used as stuffing in sleeping bags, mattresses, 
ski jackets, comforters, cushions, pillows, and furniture. Merchandise 
of less than 3.3 decitex (less than 3 denier) currently classifiable in 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at 
subheading 5503.20.00.20 is specifically excluded from the order. Also 
specifically excluded from the order are PSF of 10 to 18 denier that 
are cut to lengths of 6 to 8 inches (fibers used in the manufacture of 
carpeting). In addition, low-melt PSF is excluded from the order. Low-
melt PSF is defined as a bi-component fiber with an outer sheath that 
melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner core.
    The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable in 
the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.40, 5503.20.00.45, 5503.20.00.60, 
and 5503.20.00.65. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise subject to the order is dispositive.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    For the final results of this review, we determine that Nan Ya had 
no shipments during the POR.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    The Department made no changes to its calculations announced in the 
Preliminary Results.

Final Results of the Review

    For the final results of this review, we determine that a weighted-
average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for FENC for the POR.

Assessment Rates

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 and the Final Modification,\2\ 
the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
to liquidate all appropriate entries for FENC without regard to 
antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by FENC 
for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United 
States, 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.\3\

Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 
6, 2003) (Assessment Policy Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with the Assessment Policy Notice, because we continue 
to find that Nan Ya had no shipments of subject merchandise to the 
United States, we

[[Page 38175]]

will instruct CBP to liquidate any applicable entries of subject 
merchandise 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.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of administrative review for all 
shipments of subject merchandise 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) The cash deposit rate for FENC will be 
0.00 percent, the weighted-average dumping margin established in the 
final results of this administrative review; (2) for Nan Ya and 
previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, 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 manufacturer of the 
merchandise for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; 
(4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 7.31 percent.\4\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

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

Notification to Importers

    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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    The Department is issuing and publishing these final results of 
administrative review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), and 777(i) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
