Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 5 / Friday, January 8, 2016 / Notices of nonregulated status for GE organisms, we are publishing this notice to inform the public that APHIS will accept written comments regarding the petition for a determination of nonregulated status from interested or affected persons for a period of 60 days from the date of this notice. The petition is available for public review and comment, and copies are available as indicated under ADDRESSES and FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT above. We are interested in receiving comments regarding potential environmental and interrelated economic issues and impacts that APHIS may determine should be considered in our evaluation of the petition. We are particularly interested in receiving comments regarding biological, cultural, or ecological issues, and we encourage the submission of scientific data, studies, or research to support your comments. We also request that, when possible, commenters provide relevant information regarding specific localities or regions as creeping bentgrass growth, crop management, and crop utilization may vary considerably by geographic region. After the comment period closes, APHIS will review all written comments received during the comment period and any other relevant information. Any substantive issues identified by APHIS based on our review of the petition and our evaluation and analysis of comments will be considered in the development of our decisionmaking documents. As part of our decisionmaking process regarding a GE organism’s regulatory status, APHIS prepares a plant pest risk assessment to assess its plant pest risk and the appropriate environmental documentation—either an environmental assessment (EA) or an environmental impact statement (EIS)— in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), to provide the Agency with a review and analysis of any potential environmental impacts associated with the petition request. For petitions for which APHIS prepares an EA, APHIS will follow our published process for soliciting public comment (see footnote 1) and publish a separate notice in the Federal Register announcing the availability of APHIS’ EA and plant pest risk assessment. Should APHIS determine that an EIS is necessary, APHIS will complete the NEPA EIS process in accordance with Council on Environmental Quality regulations (40 CFR part 1500–1508) and APHIS’ NEPA implementing regulations (7 CFR part 372).

VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:40 Jan 07, 2016 Jkt 238001 Methodology The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Export prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value (‘‘NV’’) has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, hereby adopted by this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘ACCESS’’). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is also available in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Affiliation and Collapsing Based on the evidence presented in Dalian Penghong’s questionnaire responses, we preliminarily find (1) that Dalian Penghong is affiliated with a certain glue producer within the meaning of sections 771(33)(A), (F), and (G) of the Act; and (2) that Dalian Penghong and Dalian Shumaike Floor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shumaike’’) are affiliated within the meaning of section 773(33)(F) of the Act. Additionally, we are preliminarily treating Dalian Penghong and Shumaike as a single entity for antidumping duty purposes, within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.401(f), because we find that those two affiliated companies have a high level of common ownership, production facilities for similar or identical products that would not require substantial retooling to restructure manufacturing priorities, and that there is a significant potential for manipulation of price or production.2 2 See Dalian Penghong Floor Products Co., Ltd., Preliminary Affiliation and Single Entity Memorandum dated concurrently with this Notice. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Preliminary Results of Review The Department preliminarily finds that nineteen companies subject to this review did not establish eligibility for a separate rate. As such, we preliminarily determine they are part of the PRC-wide entity.3 Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity and the Department no longer considers the PRC-wide entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews,4 we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the rate for the PRC-wide entity is not subject to change as a result of this review. For companies subject to this review that have established their entitlement to a separate rate, the Department preliminarily determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the POR from December 1, 2013, through November 30, 2014: 5 3 The following companies were named in the Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 80 FR 6041 (February 4, 2014), but did not submit a certification of no shipment, separate rate application or separate rate certification; therefore they are part of the PRC-wide entity: Anhui Suzhou Dongda Wood Co., Ltd.; Baiying Furniture Manufacturer Co., Ltd.; Cheng Hang Wood Co., Ltd.; Dalian Huilong Wooden Products Co., Ltd.; Dalian Jiuyuan Wood Industry Co., Ltd.; Fu Lik Timber (HK) Co., Ltd.; Guangzhou Homebon Timber Manufacturing Co., Ltd.; HaiLin XinCheng Wooden Products, Ltd.; Hangzhou Dazhuang Floor Co., Ltd (dba Dasso Industrial Group Co., Ltd); Linyi Anying Wood Co., Ltd.; Qingdao Barry Flooring Co., Ltd. (Qingdao Barry); Shanghai Anxin (Weiguang) Timber Co., Ltd.; Vicwood Industry (Suzhou) Co., Ltd.; Xiamen Yung De Ornament Co., Ltd.; Yingyi-Nature (Kunshan) Wood Industry Co., Ltd.; Zhejiang AnJi XinFeng Bamboo & Wood Industry Co., Ltd.; Zhejiang Desheng Wood Industry Co., Ltd.; Zhejiang Haoyun Wooden Co., Ltd.; and Zhejiang Shiyou Timber Co., Ltd. We note that Qingdao Barry is currently subject to a new shipper review that covers the same POR as this administrative review. The only sale(s) made by Qingdao Barry during that period are being reviewed in the new shipper review. As a result, the Department may rescind this administrative review as to Qingdao Barry in the final results if there are no reviewable entries that remain subject to this administrative review. 4 See 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, 65969–70 (November 4, 2013). 5 In addition to the companies listed in the table, certain companies certified that they did not ship subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. The Department confirmed these certifications of no shipments with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’); therefore, the following companies will maintain their rate from the most recent segment in which they participated: Changbai Mountain Development and Protection Zone Hongtu Wood Industrial Co., Ltd.; Dalian TBoom Wood Products Co., Ltd.; Hangzhou Zhengtian Industrial Co., Ltd.; Jiangsu Guyu International Trading Co., Ltd.; Jiangsu Mingle Flooring Co., Ltd.; Linyi Bonn Flooring Manufacturing Co., Ltd.; Shanghai Eswell Timber Co., Ltd.; Shenyang Senwang Wooden Industry Co., Ltd.; Tongxiang Jisheng Import and Export Co., Ltd.; and Zhejiang Fuerjia Wooden Co., Ltd.

Because the record does not support treating Dalian Penghong as a single entity with Shumaike prior to the date of affiliation (i.e., April 2014), separate assessment rates will apply for the period from 11/30/2013 through 3/31/2014. In particular, the assessment rate for any entries by Shumaike will be 13.34 percent (the rate applicable to unexamined separate rate companies) and the assessment rate for any entries by Dalian Penghong will be 0.00. 7 On July 13, 2015, the Department determined that Zhejiang Fuma Warm Technology Co., Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Huzhou Fuma Wood Co., Ltd. See Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, 80 FR 39998 (July 13, 2015).

For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this 14 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 19 CFR 351.310(d). 16 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). 17 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 15 See PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13.34 13.34 review, the Department will calculate an importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). In these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in the Final Modification for Reviews.18 Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.19 We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the current rate for the PRC-wide entity (which, as noted above, is not subject to change in this review). On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME antidumping duty cases.20 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for merchandise that was not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, but that entered under the case number of that exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined exporter’s cash deposit rate), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, pursuant to this refinement, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of 18 See Antidumping Proceeding Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (‘‘Final Modification for Reviews’’). 19 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 20 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), for a full discussion of this practice.

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 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.

Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2013-

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is conducting 
an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on multilayered 
wood flooring (``MLWF'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). 
The period of review (``POR'') is December 1, 2013, through November 
30, 2014. The review covers two mandatory respondents, Fine Furniture 
(Shanghai) Limited (``Fine Furniture'') and Dalian Penghong Floor 
Products Co., Ltd. (``Dalian Penghong''). We preliminarily find that 
both respondents made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal 
value (``NV'').

DATES: Effective date: January 8, 2016.

    While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs

dispositive.

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). 
Export prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in 
accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market 
economy (``NME'') within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, 
normal value (``NV'') has been calculated in accordance with section 
773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, hereby 
adopted by this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public 
document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service 
System (``ACCESS''). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is also available 
in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of 
Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Affiliation and Collapsing

    Based on the evidence presented in Dalian Penghong's questionnaire 
responses, we preliminarily find (1) that Dalian Penghong is affiliated 
with a certain glue producer within the meaning of sections 771(33)(A), 
(F), and (G) of the Act; and (2) that Dalian Penghong and Dalian 
Shumaike Floor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (``Shumaike'') are affiliated 
within the meaning of section 773(33)(F) of the Act. Additionally, we 
are preliminarily treating Dalian Penghong and Shumaike as a single 
entity for antidumping duty purposes, within the meaning of 19 CFR 
351.401(f), because we find that those two affiliated companies have a 
high level of common ownership, production facilities for similar or 
identical products that would not require substantial retooling to 
restructure manufacturing priorities, and that there is a significant 
potential for manipulation of price or production.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Dalian Penghong Floor Products Co., Ltd., Preliminary 
Affiliation and Single Entity Memorandum dated concurrently with 
this Notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department preliminarily finds that nineteen companies subject 
to this review did not establish eligibility for a separate rate. As 
such, we preliminarily determine they are part of the PRC-wide 
entity.\3\ Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity 
and the Department no longer considers the PRC-wide entity as an 
exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews,\4\ we did not 
conduct a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the rate for the PRC-
wide entity is not subject to change as a result of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The following companies were named in the Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 80 FR 
6041 (February 4, 2014), but did not submit a certification of no 
shipment, separate rate application or separate rate certification; 
therefore they are part of the PRC-wide entity: Anhui Suzhou Dongda 
Wood Co., Ltd.; Baiying Furniture Manufacturer Co., Ltd.; Cheng Hang 
Wood Co., Ltd.; Dalian Huilong Wooden Products Co., Ltd.; Dalian 
Jiuyuan Wood Industry Co., Ltd.; Fu Lik Timber (HK) Co., Ltd.; 
Guangzhou Homebon Timber Manufacturing Co., Ltd.; HaiLin XinCheng 
Wooden Products, Ltd.; Hangzhou Dazhuang Floor Co., Ltd (dba Dasso 
Industrial Group Co., Ltd); Linyi Anying Wood Co., Ltd.; Qingdao 
Barry Flooring Co., Ltd. (Qingdao Barry); Shanghai Anxin (Weiguang) 
Timber Co., Ltd.; Vicwood Industry (Suzhou) Co., Ltd.; Xiamen Yung 
De Ornament Co., Ltd.; Yingyi-Nature (Kunshan) Wood Industry Co., 
Ltd.; Zhejiang AnJi XinFeng Bamboo & Wood Industry Co., Ltd.; 
Zhejiang Desheng Wood Industry Co., Ltd.; Zhejiang Haoyun Wooden 
Co., Ltd.; and Zhejiang Shiyou Timber Co., Ltd. We note that Qingdao 
Barry is currently subject to a new shipper review that covers the 
same POR as this administrative review. The only sale(s) made by 
Qingdao Barry during that period are being reviewed in the new 
shipper review. As a result, the Department may rescind this 
administrative review as to Qingdao Barry in the final results if 
there are no reviewable entries that remain subject to this 
administrative review.
    \4\ See 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, 65969-70 (November 
4, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For companies subject to this review that have established their 
entitlement to a separate rate, the Department preliminarily determines 
that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the POR 
from December 1, 2013, through November 30, 2014: \5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ In addition to the companies listed in the table, certain 
companies certified that they did not ship subject merchandise to 
the United States during the POR. The Department confirmed these 
certifications of no shipments with U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP''); therefore, the following companies will 
maintain their rate from the most recent segment in which they 
participated: Changbai Mountain Development and Protection Zone 
Hongtu Wood Industrial Co., Ltd.; Dalian T-Boom Wood Products Co., 
Ltd.; Hangzhou Zhengtian Industrial Co., Ltd.; Jiangsu Guyu 
International Trading Co., Ltd.; Jiangsu Mingle Flooring Co., Ltd.; 
Linyi Bonn Flooring Manufacturing Co., Ltd.; Shanghai Eswell Timber 
Co., Ltd.; Shenyang Senwang Wooden Industry Co., Ltd.; Tongxiang 
Jisheng Import and Export Co., Ltd.; and Zhejiang Fuerjia Wooden 
Co., Ltd.

    \6\ We note that the record reflects that Dalian Penghong and 
Shumaike were not affiliated until April 2014 (i.e., approximately 4 
months into the POR). Because the record does not support treating 
Dalian Penghong as a single entity with Shumaike prior to the date 
of affiliation (i.e., April 2014), separate assessment rates will 
apply for the period from 11/30/2013 through 3/31/2014. In 
particular, the assessment rate for any entries by Shumaike will be 
13.34 percent (the rate applicable to unexamined separate rate 
companies) and the assessment rate for any entries by Dalian 
Penghong will be 0.00.
    \7\ On July 13, 2015, the Department determined that Zhejiang 
Fuma Warm Technology Co., Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to 
Huzhou Fuma Wood Co., Ltd. See Multilayered Wood Flooring From the 
People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances 
Review, 80 FR 39998 (July 13, 2015). Because Huzhou Fuma Wood Co., 
Ltd. no longer exists as a legal entity, the rate assigned to Huzhou 
Fuma Wood Co., Ltd. will apply for assessment purposes only.
    \8\ On November 16, 2015, the Department determined that Sino-
Maple (JiangSu) Co., Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Jiafeng 
Wood (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. See Multilayered Wood Flooring From the 
People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances 
Review, 80 FR 70756 (November 16, 2015). Because Jiafeng Wood 
(Suzhou) Co., Ltd. no longer exists as a legal entity, the rate 
assigned to Jiafeng Wood (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. will apply for 
assessment purposes only.
    \9\ On September 30, 2014, the Department determined that Linyi 
Youyou Wood Co., Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Shanghai 
Lizhong Wood Products Co., Ltd./The Lizhong Wood Industry Limited 
Company of Shanghai. See Multilayered Wood Flooring From the 
People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances 
Review, 79 FR 58740 (September 30, 2014). Because Shanghai Lizhong 
Wood Products Co., Ltd./The Lizhong Wood Industry Limited Company of 
Shanghai no longer exists as a legal entity, the rate assigned to 
Shanghai Lizhong Wood Products Co., Ltd./The Lizhong Wood Industry 
Limited Company of Shanghai will apply for assessment purposes only.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department intends to disclose calculations performed for these 
preliminary results to the parties within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice.\10\ Interested parties may submit a case 
brief no later than 30 days after the date of publication of these 
preliminary results of review.\11\ Rebuttal briefs may be filed no 
later than five days after the deadline for filing case briefs and may 
respond only to arguments raised in the case briefs.\12\ A table of 
contents, list of authorities used, and an executive summary of issues 
should accompany any briefs submitted to the Department.\13\ This 
summary should be limited to five pages total, including footnotes. 
Interested parties who wish to request a hearing must submit a written

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

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review.\17\ The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final 
results of this review. For any individually examined respondent whose 
weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 
percent) in the final results of this review, the Department will 
calculate an importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rate on the 
basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated 
for the importer's examined sales and the total entered value of sales, 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). In these preliminary results, 
the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted 
in the Final Modification for Reviews.\18\ Where either the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 
an importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.\19\ We intend to instruct CBP to 
liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-
wide entity at the current rate for the PRC-wide entity (which, as 
noted above, is not subject to change in this review).

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) 
(``Final Modification for Reviews'').
    \19\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its 
assessment practice in NME antidumping duty cases.\20\ Pursuant to this 
refinement in practice, for merchandise that was not reported in the 
U.S. sales databases submitted by an exporter individually examined 
during this review, but that entered under the case number of that 
exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined exporter's cash deposit 
rate), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at 
the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, pursuant to this refinement, if the 
Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of 
the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that 
exporter's case number will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), for a full

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of

[[Page 907]]

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 the companies 
listed above the cash deposit rate will be their respective rate 
established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then the cash deposit 
rate will be zero; (2) for previously investigated PRC and non-PRC 
exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the 
most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise 
which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; and (4) 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 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    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 31, 2015.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
