SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: Consistent with the guidelines in OMB Circular A–25, federal agencies are responsible for conducting a biennial review of all programs to determine the types of activities subject to user fees and the basis upon which user fees are to be set. The U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration (ITA), recently completed a biennial review and will be notifying the public, on a rolling basis, on the various ITA user fee adjustments. In addition to OMB Circular A–25, the NTTO follows OMB Circular A–130, which mandates that federal agencies develop and maintain a comprehensive set of information management policies for use across the government, and to promote the application of information technology to improve the use and dissemination of information in the operation of Federal programs. The role of NTTO is to enhance the international competitiveness of the U.S. travel and tourism industry and increase its exports, thereby creating U.S. employment and economic growth. The primary functions of the NTTO are: (1) Management of the travel and tourism statistical system for assessing the economic contribution of the industry and providing the sole source for characteristic statistics on international travel to and from the United States; (2) design and administration of export expansion activities; (3) development and management of tourism policy, strategy and advocacy; and, (4) technical assistance for expanding this key export (international tourism) and assisting in domestic economic development. There are three main research programs in which the public may obtain additional data on the international travelers to and from the United States in addition to free information posted to the NTTO Web site. The revised 2016 fees are for the monthly, quarterly or annual data from the APIS/I–92 Program, the I–94 International Arrivals Program, and the annual custom reports, data tables or files from the Survey of International Air Travelers Program. The APIS/I–92 program is a joint effort between the Department of Homeland Security Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the NTTO to provide international air traffic statistics data to the government and the travel industry. The system is a source of data on all international flights to and from PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39895 the United States, including flights with fewer than 10 passengers. It reports the total volume of air traffic and various subsets of traffic. A differentiating feature of the I–92 is that the I–92 reports the number of U.S. citizens vs. ‘‘all other citizens.’’ The information collected from this program has been based upon the Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) since July 2010. All carriers serving the United States must transmit APIS data (from their automated flight manifests) to CBP for each flight coming to or departing from the United States. Canada also is included in this program. The information collected provides non-stop point-to-point air traffic totals between the United States and all other countries and between U.S. and foreign airports. This information is further subset by the number of passengers on U.S. flag or foreign flag carriers. In addition, there is a breakout of scheduled or charter flight passengers. In the monthly, quarterly and annual I–92 reports, there are four sets of tables. The first three sets have an arrivals portion (Ia, IIa, and IIIa), as well as a departures section (Id, IId, and IIId). The fourth table is a summary of traffic by flag of carrier. To learn more about this program, go to: http:// travel.trade.gov/research/programs/i92/ index.asp. The current 2016 and historical fees (1990–2015) for this program can be found at: http:// travel.trade.gov/research/reports/i92/ index.asp. Fees for APIS/I–92 products include a 5 percent fee increase between 2015 and 2016. The I–94 International Arrivals Program is a core part of the U.S. travel and tourism statistical system. This program provides the U.S. government and the public with the official U.S. monthly and annual overseas visitor arrivals to the United States along with select Mexican and Canadian visitor statistics. The NTTO manages the program in cooperation with the CBP. The program collects and reports overseas non-U.S. resident visitor arrivals to the United States. U.S. government data consists of the DHS I–94 data, which non-U.S. citizens from overseas and Mexico must complete to enter the United States. All visitation data is processed by residency (world region and country), for total arrivals, type of visa, mode of transportation, age of traveler, address (state level only) while in the United States port of entry, and select percentage change comparisons year-over-year. The information is presented in a report entitled the Summary of International Travel to the United States with 35 tables including the categories above. E:\FR\FM\20JNN1.SGM 20JNN1

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review. The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final 
results of this review.
    For the companies identified above, which comprise the GD Single 
Entity, the weighted-average dumping margin is zero. Therefore, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries by the 
companies that comprise the GD Single Entity without regard to 
antidumping duties.\12\ For entries that were not reported in the U.S. 
sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during 
this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries 
at the PRC-wide rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases 
submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries 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 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 exporters 
identified above, the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for 
previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that 
received a separate rate in a previously completed segment of this 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing 
exporter-specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled a separate rate, 
the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 60.85 
percent); 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.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed regarding these 
final results within five days of the date of publication of this 
notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notifications to All Parties

    This notice also serves as a 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, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of 
the Act.

    Dated: June 10, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
