In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will calculate importer- (or customer)-specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. Where appropriate, we calculated an ad valorem rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total entered values associated with those transactions. For dutyassessment rates calculated on this E:\FR\FM\19JYN1.SGM 19JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 138 / Tuesday, July 19, 2016 / Notices mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise. Where appropriate, we calculated a per-unit rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting per-unit rate against the entered quantity of the subject merchandise.20 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate is above de minimis. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For Penghong, whose weighted average dumping margin is zero, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.21 We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate. If the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.22 For the companies not selected for individual examination, we will instruct CBP to apply the rate listed above to the entries of subject merchandise exported by such companies and entered during the period from December 1, 2013 through November 30, 2014. This rate is the same as the rate for the one mandatory respondent with a weightedaverage dumping margin that is above de minimis. 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 in the Federal Register of the final results of review, as provided by section 20 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 2012). 21 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 22 For a full discussion of this practice, see Assessment of Antidumping Duties.

For Penghong, Fine Furniture, and the non-examined, separate rate respondents, the cash deposit rate will be equal to their weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is zero or de minimis, then no cash deposit will be required.

For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the most-recently established exporterspecific rate. 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 established in a redetermination of the final determination of the less than fair value investigation (i.e., 25.62 percent).23 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.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that 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.;

[[Page 46901]]

Shenyang Senwang Wooden Industry Co., Ltd.; Tongxiang Jisheng Import 
and Export Co., Ltd.; and Zhejiang Fuerjia Wooden Co., Ltd. had no 
shipments during the POR.\6\ We did not receive comments with respect 
to any of these companies. Thus, for these final results of review, we 
continue to find that those companies had no shipments during the POR. 
Consistent with our ``automatic assessment'' clarification, we will 
issue appropriate instructions with respect to these companies to U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') based on our final results.\7\

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist for the POR from December 1, 2013 through November 30, 2014:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ We note that the record reflects that Penghong and Shumaike 
were not affiliated until April 2014 (i.e., approximately 4 months 
into the POR). Because the record does not support treating 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 Penghong will be 0.00.
    \16\ The following companies are collectively known as The 
Fusong Jinlong Group (``Fusong Jinlong Group''): Dalian Qianqiu 
Wooden Product Co., Ltd.; Fusong Jinlong Wooden Group Co., Ltd.; 
Fusong Jinqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd.; and Fusong Qianqiu Wooden 
Product Co., Ltd.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and 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 these final results of this review. In 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or 
customer-) specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to 
this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-
average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the 
Department will calculate importer- (or customer)-specific assessment 
rates for merchandise subject to this review. Where appropriate, we 
calculated an ad valorem rate for each importer (or customer) by 
dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by 
the total entered values associated with those transactions. For duty-
assessment rates calculated on this

[[Page 46903]]

basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate 
against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise. Where 
appropriate, we calculated a per-unit rate for each importer (or 
customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to 
that party by the total sales quantity associated with those 
transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this basis, we 
will direct CBP to assess the resulting per-unit rate against the 
entered quantity of the subject merchandise.\20\ We will instruct CBP 
to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review when the importer-specific assessment rate is above de minimis. 
Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero 
or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties. For Penghong, whose weighted 
average dumping margin is zero, the Department will instruct CBP to 
liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.\21\ 
We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise 
exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ 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.
    \18\ 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.
    \19\ 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.
    \20\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 
2012).
    \21\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If the Department determines that an exporter under review had no 
shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered 
under that exporter's case number will be liquidated at the PRC-wide 
rate.\22\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \22\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies not selected for individual examination, we will 
instruct CBP to apply the rate listed above to the entries of subject 
merchandise exported by such companies and entered during the period 
from December 1, 2013 through November 30, 2014. This rate is the same 
as the rate for the one mandatory respondent with a weighted-average 
dumping margin that is above de minimis.

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 in the Federal 
Register of the final results of review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. For Penghong, Fine Furniture, and the non-
examined, separate rate respondents, the cash deposit rate will be 
equal to their weighted-average dumping margins established in the 
final results of this review, except if the rate is zero or de minimis, 
then no cash deposit will be required. 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. which claimed no shipments, the cash deposit rate will remain 
unchanged from their rate assigned in the most recently completed 
review of the company. For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and 
non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a 
prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue 
to be the most-recently established exporter-specific rate. 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 established in a redetermination of the final 
determination of the less than fair value investigation (i.e., 25.62 
percent).\23\ 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 AR 
final results within five days of the date of publication of this 
notice in this proceeding 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.

Administrative Protective Order (``APO'')

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
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 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 this Administrative Review and notice 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(a)(2)(B), and 777(i) of the 
Act.
