the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'').\1\ The period of 
review (``POR'') is November 1, 2013, through October 31, 2014. This 
review was initiated with respect to four companies. After rescinding 
the review with respect to three of the four companies, one company,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On August 12, 2015, the Department published the Preliminary 
Results. We invited interested parties to submit comments on the 
Preliminary Results, but no comments were received.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are all gauges of raw, pre-
treated, or primed PET film, whether extruded or co-extruded. Excluded 
are metalized films and other finished films that have had at least one 
of their surfaces modified by the application of a performance-
enhancing resinous or inorganic layer more than 0.00001 inches thick. 
Also excluded is roller transport cleaning film which has at least one 
of its surfaces modified by application of 0.5 micrometers of SBR 
latex. Tracing and drafting film is also excluded. PET film is 
classifiable under subheading 3920.62.00.90 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). 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 eligibility for separate rate status. 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\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Preliminary Results and accompanying Decision Memorandum 
at 4. See also Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in 
Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty 
Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity 
in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963, 65970 (November 4, 
2013). Under this practice, the PRC-wide entity will not be under 
review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department self-
initiates, 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 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.

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 
terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and this notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: November 9, 2015.
