Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology 
underlying our conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which 
is hereby incorporated in, and adopted by, these final results. This 
memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via

Period of Review

    The period of review is September 1, 2013, through August 31, 2014.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    As noted the in Preliminary Results, Yama Ribbons had no reviewable 
transactions of merchandise during the POR.\4\ As there are no changes 
from, or comments upon, the Preliminary Results, the Department finds 
that there is no reason to modify its analysis. Therefore, we continue 
to find that Yama Ribbons did not have reviewable transactions during 
the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 5.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review.\5\ The Department intends 
to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of these final results of review. Pursuant to the 
Department's practice in non-market economy cases, because Yama Ribbons 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise during the POR, the 
Department intends to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject 
merchandise that entered under Yama Ribbons' rate at the PRC-wide rate 
of 247.65 percent. For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-
Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping 
Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

date of the final results of review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For exports of merchandise made by Yama 
Ribbons of merchandise it did not produce, the cash deposit rate is the 
PRC-wide rate of 247.65, as stated in the Order; \6\ (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters which are not under 
review in this segment of the proceeding but which have been determined 
by Commerce to have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate the cash deposit rate will 
be the PRC-wide rate of 247.65 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter(s) that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit

notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to the 
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). Timely notification of the 
destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order 
is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the
