A list of the issues which parties raised and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this notice as Appendix I. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain revisions to the margin calculations for Dongyuan, Yingao, and the separate rate respondents.4 Separate Rate Respondents In the Preliminary Results, we determined that the mandatory respondents, Dongyuan and Yingao, and the following separate rate applicant companies satisfied the criteria for separate rate status: Foshan Zhaoshun Trade Co., Ltd.; Guangdong New Shichu Import & Export Company Limited; Yuyao Afa Kitchenware Co., Ltd.; Zhongshan Newecan Enterprise Development Corporation Limited; and Zhongshan Superte Kitchenware Co., Ltd.5 We received no comments or arguments since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provide a basis for reconsideration of our decision with respect to these companies. Therefore, the Department continues to find that the companies listed above meet the criteria for a separate rate. Rate for Non-Examined Separate Rate Respondents In the Preliminary Results, we assigned an average of the weightedaverage dumping margins assigned to Dongyuan and Yingao to the nonindividually examined companies that are eligible for a separate rate (i.e., the separate rate applicant companies). No parties commented on the methodology for calculating this separate rate. Therefore, in these final results of the review, we continue to use an average of the weighted-average dumping margins assigned to Dongyuan and Yingao,6 which is 4.29 percent, as the asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 4 For further explanation regarding these changes, see Issues and Decision Memorandum. 5 See Preliminary Results, 80 FR 26228; see also Memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People’s Republic of China’’ (April 30, 2015) (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), at 6–9. 6 See Memorandum to the File from Brian Smith, Team Leader, ‘‘Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People’s Republic of China: Calculation of the Final Margin for Separate Rate Companies,’’ dated concurrently with this memorandum (Final Results Separate Rate Calculation Memorandum).

The separate rate applicant companies receiving this rate are identified by name and listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of the Review.’’ Final Results of the Review In the Preliminary Results, the Department found that Feidong Import & Export Co., Ltd.; Shunde Native Produce Import & Export Co, Ltd. of Guangdong; and Zhongshan Silk Import & Export Group Co., Ltd. of Guangdong were not eligible for a separate rate, and therefore, were part of the PRC-wide entity.7 Because the status of these companies has not changed since the Preliminary Results, we continue to find that they are ineligible for a separate rate and part of the PRC-wide entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity and the Department no longer considers the PRC-wide entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews,8 we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the rate for the PRC-wide entity is not subject to change as a result of this review. For companies subject to this review, which established their eligibility for a separate rate, the Department finds that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period October 4, 2012, through March 31, 2014: Weightedaverage dumping margin 9 (percent) Exporters Foshan Zhaoshun Trade Co., Ltd ...........................................

The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this administrative review. For each individually examined respondent in this review (i.e., Dongyuan and Yingao) which has a weighted-average dumping margin which is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will calculate importer- (or customer-) specific perunit duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s (or customer’s) examined sales to the total sales quantity associated with those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).10 Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-(or customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For the respondents which were not selected for individual examination in this administrative review and which qualified for a separate rate, the assessment rate is equal to the average of the weighted-average dumping margins assigned to Dongyuan and Yingao, or 4.29 percent.

The Department has refined 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, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an 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.12 Notification to Importers Cash Deposit Requirements This notice also serves as a 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), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

SUMMARY: On May 7, 2015, the Department of Commerce (Department) 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty (AD) order on drawn stainless steel sinks (drawn 
sinks) from the People's Republic of China (PRC).\1\ The review covers 
seven producers/exporters of the subject merchandise, including the 
following mandatory respondents: Guangdong Dongyuan Kitchenware 
Industrial Co., Ltd. (Dongyuan) and Guangdong Yingao Kitchen Utensils 
Co., Ltd. (Yingao). The period of review (POR) is October 4, 2012, 
through March 31, 2014. We provided interested parties an opportunity 
to comment on the Preliminary Results. After reviewing the comments 
received and making corrections to the margin calculations, where 
appropriate, we continue to find that Dongyuan and Yingao both made 
sales of subject merchandise to the United States at prices below 
normal value (NV) during the POR. The final dumping margins are listed 
below in the section entitled ``Final Results of the Review.''

raised and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is 
attached to this notice as Appendix I.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain 
revisions to the margin calculations for Dongyuan, Yingao, and the 
separate rate respondents.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ For further explanation regarding these changes, see Issues 
and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rate Respondents

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that the mandatory 
respondents, Dongyuan and Yingao, and the following separate rate 
applicant companies satisfied the criteria for separate rate status: 
Foshan Zhaoshun Trade Co., Ltd.; Guangdong New Shichu Import & Export 
Company Limited; Yuyao Afa Kitchenware Co., Ltd.; Zhongshan Newecan 
Enterprise Development Corporation Limited; and Zhongshan Superte 
Kitchenware Co., Ltd.\5\ We received no comments or arguments since the 
issuance of the Preliminary Results that provide a basis for 
reconsideration of our decision with respect to these companies. 
Therefore, the Department continues to find that the companies listed 
above meet the criteria for a separate rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Preliminary Results, 80 FR 26228; see also Memorandum to 
Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, 
from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and

Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: 
Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People's Republic of China'' 
(April 30, 2015) (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), at 6-9.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rate for Non-Examined Separate Rate Respondents

    In the Preliminary Results, we assigned an average of the weighted-
average dumping margins assigned to Dongyuan and Yingao to the non-
individually examined companies that are eligible for a separate rate 
(i.e., the separate rate applicant companies). No parties commented on 
the methodology for calculating this separate rate. Therefore, in these 
final results of the review, we continue to use an average of the 
weighted-average dumping margins assigned to Dongyuan and Yingao,\6\ 
which is 4.29 percent, as the rate for those companies which were not 
examined and which are eligible for a separate rate. The separate rate 
applicant companies receiving this rate are identified by name and 
listed below in the section entitled ``Final Results of the Review.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Memorandum to the File from Brian Smith, Team Leader, 
``Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People's Republic of China: 
Calculation of the Final Margin for Separate Rate Companies,'' dated 
concurrently with this memorandum (Final Results Separate Rate 
Calculation Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department found that Feidong 
Import & Export Co., Ltd.; Shunde Native Produce Import & Export Co, 
Ltd. of Guangdong; and Zhongshan Silk Import & Export Group Co., Ltd. 
of Guangdong were not eligible for a separate rate, and therefore, were 
part of the PRC-wide entity.\7\ Because the status of these companies 
has not changed since the Preliminary Results, we continue to find that 
they are ineligible for a separate rate and part of the PRC-wide 
entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity and 
the Department no longer considers the PRC-wide entity as an exporter 
conditionally subject to administrative reviews,\8\ we did not conduct 
a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the rate for the PRC-wide entity 
is not subject to change as a result of this review.

    For companies subject to this review, which established their 
eligibility for a separate rate, the Department finds that the 
following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period October 
4, 2012, through March 31, 2014:

Assessment Rates
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ These rates have been adjusted for the estimated domestic 
subsidy pass-through.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department determined, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this administrative review.
    For each individually examined respondent in this review (i.e., 
Dongyuan and Yingao) which has a weighted-average dumping margin which 
is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will 
calculate importer- (or customer-) specific per-unit duty assessment 
rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for 
the importer's (or customer's) examined sales to the total sales 
quantity associated with those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\10\ Where either the respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-(or customer-) 
specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ In these final results, the Department continues to apply 
the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the respondents which were not selected for individual 
examination in this administrative review and which qualified for a 
separate rate, the assessment rate is equal to the average of the 
weighted-average dumping margins assigned to Dongyuan and Yingao, or 
4.29 percent.
    For the companies identified above as part of the PRC-wide entity, 
we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 76.45 
\11\ percent to all entries of subject merchandise during

[[Page 69646]]

the POR which were produced and/or exported by those companies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ The PRC-wide rate determined in the investigation was 76.53 
percent. See Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People's Republic 
of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 78 FR 21592, 21594 (April 11, 
2013). This rate was adjusted for export subsidies and estimated 
domestic subsidy pass through to determine the cash deposit rate 
(76.45 percent) collected for companies in the PRC-wide entity. See 
explanation in Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks From the People's 
Republic of China: Investigation, Final Determination, 78 FR 13019, 
13025 (February 26, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department has refined 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, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. In addition, if the 
Department determines that an 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.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (NME Antidumping Proceedings).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that rate established in the final results of this review (except, if 
the rate is zero or de minimis, then a cash deposit rate of zero will 
be established for that company); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that received a separate rate in a 
prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue 
to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (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 rate for the PRC-wide 
entity, which is 76.45 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 requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure

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

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing 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 and/or countervailing duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a 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), 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. Failure to comply with the regulations and 
terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(l) and 
777(i)(l) of the Act.

    Dated: November 2, 2015.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
