Companies That Did Not Demonstrate Separate Rate Eligibility

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that five 
companies did not establish their eligibility for separate rate status 
and, thus, are part of the PRC-wide entity.\3\ In its comments on the 
Preliminary Results, Petitioner states that the Department correctly 
denied Hunan Valin Xiangtan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (``Hunan Valin'') 
separate rate status. In these final results, we are continuing to 
treat Hebei Iron, Hunan Valin, Jiangyin Plastic, Jiangyin Steel, and 
Xiamen Paper as part of the PRC-wide 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.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Preliminary Results at 80 FR 48074. The five companies 
that did not establish their eligibility for a separate rate are: 
Hebei Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (``Hebei Iron''); Hunan Valin; Jiangyin 
Xingcheng Plastic Chemical Co., Ltd. (``Jiangyin Plastic''); 
Jiangyin Xingcheng Special Steel Works Co., Ltd. (``Jiangyin 
Steel''); and Xiamen C&D Paper & Pulp Co., Ltd. (``Xiamen Paper'').

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

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that Wuyang Iron & Steel 
Co, Ltd. (``Wuyang Iron'') did not have any reviewable transactions 
during the POR.\5\ We did not receive any comments concerning our 
finding of no shipments by Wuyang Iron. In these final results, we 
continue to determine that Wuyang Iron had no reviewable transactions 
of subject merchandise during the POR.

at 4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department has determined, and 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 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of 
these final results of this review. The Department intends to instruct 
CBP to liquidate any entries of subject merchandise from Hebei Iron, 
Hunan Valin; Jiangyin Plastic, Jiangyin Steel, and Xiamen Paper, at 
128.59 percent (the PRC-wide rate).
    Additionally, pursuant to the Department's practice, because we 
determined that Wuyang Iron had no shipments of subject merchandise 
during the POR, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate any suspended 
entries of subject merchandise from Wuyang Iron at the PRC-wide 
rate.\6\

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 entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of review, 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 Hebei Iron; Hunan Valin; 
Jiangyin Plastic; Jiangyin Steel; and Xiamen Paper, the cash deposit 
rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 128.59 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

    This notice also 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

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 the 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/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.
    These final results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213.
