Imports of subject merchandise are currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheadings 7324.10.000 and 7324.10.0010. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise within the scope is dispositive.2 Limited of Guangdong are part of the PRC-wide entity and will receive the rate of that entity. Finally, we continue to find that Kehuaxing Industrial Ltd. (Kehuaxing) made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. For further details of the issues addressed in this segment of the proceeding, see the Preliminary Results and the accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Jkt 238001 As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the Preliminary Results on the record of this segment of the proceeding. As there are no changes from, or comments upon, the Preliminary Results, the Department finds that there is no reason to modify its analysis. Thus, we continue to find that sales of subject merchandise by Guangdong Dongyuan Kitchenware Industrial Co., Ltd. (Dongyuan) were made at less than normal value (NV) during the POR. We also continue to grant separate rates to Feidong Import and Export Co., Ltd. and Ningbo Afa Kitchen and Bath Co., Ltd.

    The products covered by the order include drawn stainless steel 
sinks. Imports of subject merchandise are currently classified in the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheadings

Final Results of Review and Final Determination of No Shipments

    As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the 
Preliminary Results on the record of this segment of the proceeding. As 
there are no changes from, or comments upon, the Preliminary Results, 
the Department finds that there is no reason to modify its analysis. 
Thus, we continue to find that sales of subject merchandise by 
Guangdong Dongyuan Kitchenware Industrial Co., Ltd. (Dongyuan) were 
made at less than normal value (NV) during the POR. We also continue to 
grant separate rates to Feidong Import and Export Co., Ltd. and Ningbo 
Afa Kitchen and Bath Co., Ltd. Further, we continue to find that B&R 
Industries Limited, Zhongshan Newecan Enterprise Development 
Corporation, and Zhongshan Superte Kitchenware Co., Ltd./Superte 
invoiced as Foshan Zhaoshun Trade Co., Ltd., Shunde Foodstuffs J&C 
Industries Enterprise Limited, Foshan Shunde MingHao Kitchen Utensils

Jiangxi Zoje Kitchen & Bath Industry Co., Ltd., Ningbo Oulin Kitchen 
Utensils Co., Ltd. and Shunde Foodstuffs Import & Export Company 
Limited of Guangdong are part of the PRC-wide entity and will receive 
the rate of that entity. Finally, we continue to find that Kehuaxing 
Industrial Ltd. (Kehuaxing) made no shipments of subject merchandise 
during the POR. Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies this 
Federal Register notice. For further details of the issues addressed in 
this segment of the proceeding, see the Preliminary Results and the

* These companies demonstrated that they qualified for a separate rate
  in this administrative review. As we did in the Preliminary Results,
  and consistent with the Department's practice, we continue to assign
  them the rate calculated for the mandatory respondent in this review.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The 
Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this 
administrative review.
    For Dongyuan, which has a weighted-average dumping margin which is 
not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we calculated 
importer- (or customer-) specific per-unit duty assessment rates based 
on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the 
importer's (or customer's) examined sales to the total sales quantity 
associated with those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 
Where 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.
    For the respondents which were not selected for individual 
examination in this administrative review and which

[[Page 54043]]

qualified for a separate rate, the assessment rate is equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margin assigned to Dongyuan, or 1.65 percent.
    For the companies identified above as part of the PRC-wide entity, 
we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 76.45 
\3\ percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which 
were produced and/or exported by those companies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The PRC-wide rate determined in the investigation was 76.53 
percent. See Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People's Republic 
of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 78 FR 21592, 21594 (April 11, 
2013). This rate was adjusted for export subsidies and estimated 
domestic subsidy pass through to determine the cash deposit rate 
(76.45 percent) collected for companies in the PRC-wide entity. See 
explanation in Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks From the People's 
Republic of China: Investigation, Final Determination, 78 FR 13019, 
13025 (February 26, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department has refined its assessment practice in NME cases. 
Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not 
reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by Dongyuan, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide 
rate. In addition, because the Department determined that Kehuaxing had 
no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under Kehuaxing's rate will be liquidated at the PRC-wide 
rate.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (NME Antidumping Proceedings).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that rate established in the final results of this review (except, if 
the rate is zero or de minimis, then a cash deposit rate of zero will 
be established for that company); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that received a separate rate in a 
prior 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 to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the PRC-wide 
entity, which is 76.45 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(s) that 
supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    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(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.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
