Assessment Rates Upon issuing the final results of these reviews, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.10 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. For each individually examined respondent in this review whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, the Department will calculate importerspecific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).11 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, the Department 8 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 19 CFR 351.310(d). 10 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). 11 In these preliminary results, the Department applied 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). 9 See PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.12 Where either a respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem dumping margin is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.13 We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate. The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by companies individually examined during the AR, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no shipments of 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.14 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of these reviews for 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 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 216.01 percent; and (2) 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 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 preliminary 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 12 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 14 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 13 See E:\FR\FM\14DEN1.SGM 14DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 239 / Monday, December 14, 2015 / Notices 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.

    Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of 
publication of this notice.\8\ Hearing requests should contain the 
following information: (1) The party's name, address, and telephone 
number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of the issues to 
be discussed. Oral presentations will be limited to issues raised in 
the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be

    The Department will issue the final results of this AR, which will 
include the results of its analysis of issues raised in any briefs 
received, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results, 
pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of these reviews, the Department 
will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review.\10\ The Department intends 
to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication 
date of the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For each individually examined respondent in this review whose 
weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.5 percent) 
in the final results of this review, the Department will calculate 
importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to 
the total entered value of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\11\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad 
valorem rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct 
CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.\12\ 
Where either a respondent's weighted average dumping margin is zero or 
de minimis, or an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to 
liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.\13\ 
We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise 
exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied 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).
    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in 
NME cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that 
were not reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by companies 
individually examined during the AR, the Department will instruct CBP 
to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, if the 
Department determines that an exporter had no shipments of 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.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of these reviews for 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 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 216.01 percent; and (2) 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 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 preliminary 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

[[Page 77323]]

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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: December 2, 2015.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
