While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Separate Rates In the Preliminary Results, we determined that because Green Packing did not provide separate rate information, it did not establish its 1 See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Administrative Review; 2013–2014, 80 FR 48293 (August 12, 2015) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’).

Accordingly, the Department preliminarily determined that Green Packing is part of the PRC-wide entity, and determined a rate consistent with the Department’s current practice regarding conditional review of the PRC-wide entity.2 No party commented on the Preliminary Results. For these final results, the Department continues to find that Green Packing is part of the PRC-wide entity. Final Results of Review The Department determines that Green Packing is part of the PRC-wide entity. Assessment The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.3 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. The Department intends to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise from Green Packing at the PRC-wide rate of 76.72 percent. 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the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters which are not under review in this segment of the proceeding but which have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, including Green Packing, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 76.72 percent; and (3) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which 2 See Preliminary Results and accompanying Decision Memorandum at 4.

Under this practice, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department selfinitiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate is not subject to change. 3 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

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.
