On February 12, 2016, the Department published the Preliminary Results. We invited parties to comment on the preliminary results of the review.

The Department conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The scope of this order includes all grades and granulation sizes of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate in their unblended forms, whether dry or in solution, and regardless of packaging type. The scope also includes blends of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate; as well as blends with other ingredients, such as sugar, where the unblended form(s) of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate constitute 40 percent or more, by weight, of the blend. The scope of this order also includes all forms of crude calcium citrate, including dicalcium citrate monohydrate, and tricalcium citrate tetrahydrate, which are intermediate products in the production of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate. The scope of this order does not include calcium citrate that satisfies the standards set forth in the United States Pharmacopeia and has been mixed with a functional excipient, such as dextrose or starch, where the excipient constitutes at least 2 percent, by weight, of the product. The scope of this order includes the hydrous and anhydrous forms of citric acid, the dihydrate and anhydrous forms of sodium citrate, otherwise known as citric acid sodium salt, and the monohydrate and monopotassium forms of potassium citrate. Sodium citrate also includes both trisodium citrate and monosodium citrate, which are also known as citric acid trisodium salt and citric acid monosodium salt, respectively. Citric acid and sodium citrate are classifiable under 2918.14.0000 and 2918.15.1000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), respectively.

AGENCY: The NMFS Assistant Administrator, (Assistant Administrator) has issued an affirmative finding annual renewal for the Government of El Salvador under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The MMPA, 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq., allows for importation into the United States of yellowfin tuna harvested by purse seine vessels in the ETP under certain conditions. If requested by the harvesting nation, the Assistant Administrator will determine whether to make an affirmative finding based upon documentary evidence provided by the government of the harvesting nation, the IATTC, or the Department of State. The affirmative finding process requires that the harvesting nation is meeting its obligations under the IDCP and obligations of membership in the IATTC. Every 5 years, the government of the harvesting nation must request a new affirmative finding and submit the required documentary evidence directly to the Assistant Administrator. On an annual basis, NMFS reviews the affirmative finding and determines whether the harvesting nation continues to meet the requirements. A nation may provide information related to compliance with IDCP and IATTC measures directly to NMFS on an annual basis or may authorize the IATTC to release the information to NMFS to annually renew an affirmative finding determination without an application from the harvesting nation. An affirmative finding will be terminated, in consultation with the Secretary of State, if the Assistant Administrator determines that the requirements of 50 CFR 216.24(f) are no longer being met or that a nation is consistently failing to take enforcement actions on violations, thereby diminishing the effectiveness of the IDCP.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The review covers one manufacturer/exporter of the subject 
merchandise: JBL Canada. On February 12, 2016, the Department published 
the Preliminary Results. We invited parties to comment on the 
preliminary results of the review. No interested party submitted 
comments and we made no changes to the margin calculation for the final 
results of this review. Therefore, the final results are the same as 
the preliminary results. The Department conducted this administrative 
review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order includes all grades and granulation sizes 
of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate in their 
unblended forms, whether dry or in solution, and regardless of 
packaging type. The scope also includes blends of citric acid, sodium 
citrate, and potassium citrate; as well as blends with other 
ingredients, such as sugar, where the unblended form(s) of citric acid, 
sodium citrate, and potassium citrate constitute 40 percent or more, by 
weight, of the blend. The scope of this order also includes all forms 
of crude calcium citrate, including dicalcium citrate monohydrate, and 
tricalcium citrate tetrahydrate, which are intermediate products in the 
production of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate. The 
scope of this order does not include calcium citrate that satisfies the 
standards set forth in the United States Pharmacopeia and has been 
mixed with a functional excipient, such as dextrose or starch, where 
the excipient constitutes at least 2 percent, by weight, of the 
product. The scope of this order includes the hydrous and anhydrous 
forms of citric acid, the dihydrate and anhydrous forms of sodium 
citrate, otherwise known as citric acid sodium salt, and the 
monohydrate and monopotassium forms of potassium citrate. Sodium 
citrate also includes both trisodium citrate and monosodium citrate, 
which are also known as citric acid trisodium salt and citric acid 
monosodium salt, respectively. Citric acid and sodium citrate are 
classifiable under 2918.14.0000 and 2918.15.1000 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), respectively. Potassium 
citrate and crude calcium citrate are classifiable under 2918.15.5000

the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive.

Period of Review

    The period of review is May 1, 2014, through April 30, 2015.

Final Results of Review

    As a result of this review, the Department determines that a 
weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for JBL Canada 
for the period May 1, 2014, through April 30, 2015.

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b). Pursuant to 19 CFR 
356.8(a), the Department intends to issue appropriate appraisement 
instructions for the respondent subject to this review directly to CBP 
41 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
review. Because we calculated a zero margin for JBL Canada in the final 
results of this review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the

manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the
