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 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 3 See Preliminary Results at 80 FR 48074.

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publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For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 nonPRC 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.
