Download as PDF Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 76 / Wednesday, April 20, 2016 / Notices estimates at national and sub-national levels. The coverage estimates produced as a result of the MAFCS design will allow the Census Bureau to establish a baseline coverage measure for the MTdb and yearly measures to assess the impacts of ongoing address updates on the MTdb. In addition to the traditional updates from the United States Postal Service and current surveys, the Census Bureau now continuously updates the MTdb with data from local data providers through the Geographic Support Systems (GSS). The MAFCS estimates will allow the Census Bureau to assess the updates from the GSS as well as other ongoing updates. MAFCS will leverage existing Census Bureau programs and systems to achieve these objectives. MAFCS data are collected by DAAL staff; hence, there will be a large increase to the DAAL operation workload. During Fiscal Year 2016, the bulk of the production field data collection (18,500 blocks) will occur from April 2016 through September 2017. In subsequent fiscal years, the field data collection will be spread over a 12month period from October through September. The MAFCS uses probabilistic sampling methods to select blocks to canvass in the United States (except remote areas of Alaska) and Puerto Rico. Blocks for Puerto Rico will be selected for Fiscal Year 2017 and canvassing will not begin until April 2017. Blocks that are known to include public lands, nonresidential military facilities, or only street medians are out of scope for the MAFCS. The listed activities are not exhaustive of all activities that may be performed under this generic clearance. We will follow the approved procedure when submitting any additional activities not specifically listed here. All activities described above directly support the Census Bureau’s efforts to update the MTdb on a regular basis so that the most current MTdb will be available for use in conducting and evaluating statistical programs the Census Bureau undertakes on a monthly, annual, or periodic basis. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: Continuous throughout the three years. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Legal Authority: Title 13 United States Code, Sections 141 and 193.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background We conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). These final results of administrative review cover nine exporters of subject merchandise.2 The Department finds that of these nine exporters, two mandatory respondents, Qingdao Qihang Tyre Co., Ltd. (‘‘Qihang’’) and Xuzhou Xugong Tyres Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xugong’’),3 made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value (‘‘NV’’), and, an additional four companies, Qingdao Free Trade Zone Full-World International Trading Co., Ltd. (‘‘Full-World’’), Trelleborg Wheel Systems (Xingtai) China, Co. Ltd. (‘‘TWS Xingtai’’) and Weihai Zhongwei Rubber Co., Ltd. (‘‘Zhongwei’’), and Tianjin Leviathan International Trade Co., Ltd. (‘‘Leviathan’’), demonstrated eligibility for separate rates status. Further, the Department determines that Zhongce Rubber Group Company Limited (‘‘Zhongce’’) and Trelleborg Wheel Systems Hebei Co. (‘‘TWS Hebei’’) had no shipments during the POR and 2 We initiated a review of 12 companies. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 79 FR 64565 (October 30, 2014) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’).

(collectively, ‘‘GTC’’), timely withdrew their requests for review, and on February 24, 2015, the Department rescinded the review for Double Coin and GTC pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

(‘‘Armour’’) and Xuzhou Hanbang Tyre Co., Ltd. (‘‘Hanbang’’) as a single entity (collectively, ‘‘Xugong’’). No party has challenged this collapsing decision.

We also received case briefs from TWS Xingtai. On March 17, 2016, the Department held a public hearing at the request of respondents and Petitioners. For a further discussion of the events that occurred in this investigation subsequent to the Preliminary Results, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.4 Also, as explained in the memorandum from the Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, the Department exercised its authority to toll all administrative deadlines due to the recent closure of the Federal Government.5 As a consequence, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by four business days. The revised deadline for the final results is now April 12, 2016. The Department conducted this review in accordance with 751 of the Act.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission in Part

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The 
Department initiated the instant review on January 7, 2016 and 
Petitioners withdrew their request on March 29, 2016, which is within 
the 90-day period and thus is timely. Because Petitioners' withdrawal 
of their requests for review is timely and because no other party 
requested a review of Flex, we are rescinding this review, in part, 
with respect to Flex, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). No party 
to the review withdrew their request for a review of JBF. As such, the 
instant review will continue with respect to JBF.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess anti-dumping duties on all appropriate entries. Subject 
merchandise of Flex will be assessed ADs at rates equal to the cash 
deposit of estimated ADs required at the time of entry, or withdrawal 
from warehouse, for consumption, during the period November 1, 2014, 
through October 31, 2015, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a reminder to importers for whom this review 
is being rescinded, as of the publication date of

[[Page 23272]]

this notice, of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file 
a certificate regarding the reimbursement of ADs prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of the ADs occurred and the subsequent increase in the 
amount of ADs assessed.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under 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.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(4).
