SUMMARY: For the final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China, we find that sales were made at less than normal value. The period of review is April 1, 2014, through March 31, 2015. Based upon our analysis of the comments received, we made changes to the margin calculations for these final results of the antidumping duty administrative review. The final weighted-average dumping margins are listed below in the ‘‘Final Results of the Review’’ section of this notice. DATES: Effective September 8, 2016.

In Appendix I to this notice, we have provided a list of the issues raised by parties. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’), Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building, as well as electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘ACCESS’’). ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov and it is available to all parties in the CRU. In addition, parties can directly access a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum on the Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/ index.html. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we have made certain revisions to the margin calculations for Jacobi, Datong Juqiang, and the non-examined, separate rate respondents.7 Further, the Surrogate Values Memo 8 contains descriptions of our changes to the surrogate values. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined that Carbon Activated Tianjin Co. Ltd. had no shipments during the period of review (‘‘POR’’).9 We have received no information to contradict this determination. Therefore, the Department continues to determine that Carbon Activated Tianjin Co. Ltd. had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, and will issue appropriate liquidation instructions that are consistent with our ‘‘automatic assessment’’ clarification, for these final results.10 7 See Issues and Decision Memorandum and the company-specific analysis memoranda for further explanation regarding these changes. 8 See Memorandum to the File, through Catherine Bertrand, Program Manager, Office V, from Bob Palmer, Case Analyst, Office V, Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’): Surrogate Values for the Final Results,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (‘‘Surrogate Values Memo’’). 9 See Preliminary Determination at 11513. 10 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 4, 2011) (‘‘Assessment Practice Refinement’’). E:\FR\FM\08SEN1.SGM 08SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 174 / Thursday, September 8, 2016 / Notices Separate Rate Respondents In our Preliminary Results, we determined that the following companies (including both mandatory respondents) met the criteria for separate rate status: • Beijing Pacific Activated Carbon Products Co., Ltd.11 • Calgon Carbon (Tianjin) Co., Ltd.; • Datong Municipal Yunguang Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.; • Datong Juqiang Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.; • Jacobi Carbons AB; Jilin Bright Future Chemicals Company, Ltd.; • Ningxia Guanghua Activated Carbon Co., Ltd. (‘‘Guanghua’’); • Ningxia Guanghua Cherishmet Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.; • Ningxia Huahui Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.; • Ningxia Mineral & Chemical Limited; • Shanxi Dapu International Trade Co., Ltd.; • Shanxi DMD Corporation; • Shanxi Industry Technology Trading Co., Ltd.; • Shanxi Sincere Industrial Co., Ltd.; • Shanxi Tianxi Purification Filter Co., Ltd.; • Sinoacarbon International Trading Co., Ltd.; • Tancarb Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.; • Tianjin Channel Filters Co., Ltd.; and • Tianjin Maijin Industries Co., Ltd.12 We have received no comments or argument since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsideration of these determinations. Therefore, the Department continues to find that the companies listed above meet the criteria for a separate rate. Rate for Non-Examined Separate Rate Respondents In the Preliminary Results,13 and consistent with the Department’s practice,14 we assigned the nonexamined, separate rate companies a 62089 rate equal to the weighted average of the calculated weighted-average dumping margins for the mandatory respondents that are not zero, de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) or based entirely on facts available, weighted by the total U.S. sales quantities from the public version of the submissions from the mandatory respondents.15 No parties commented on the methodology for calculating this separate rate. For the final results, we continue to apply this approach, as it is consistent with the intent of section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act and our use of section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.16 Final Results of the Review For companies subject to this review, which established their eligibility for a separate rate, the Department determines that the following weightedaverage dumping margins exist for the POR from April 1, 2014, through March 31, 2015: Weightedaverage dumping margin (USD/kg) 17 Exporter Jacobi Carbons AB 18 ..........................................................................................................................................................................

Thus, the weighted-average dumping margin for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 2.42 USD/kg) 22 is not subject to change as a result of this review. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has determined, 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 these final results of this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above the de minimis threshold (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will calculate importerspecific ad valorem assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of sales. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. As the Department stated in the most recent administrative review,23 we will continue to direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates 24 based on per-unit (i.e., per-kilogram) rates. Specifically, we calculated importer-specific, antidumping duty assessment rates on a per-unit rate basis by dividing the total amount of dumping for each importer by the total sales quantity of subject merchandise sold to that importer during the POR. Pursuant to a refinement in the Department’s non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) practice, for sales that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate entries associated with those 21 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963, 65969–70 (November 4, 2013). 22 See Certain Activated Carbon From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012– 2013, 79 FR 70163, 70165 (November 25, 2014). 23 See Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2013–2014, 80 FR 61172, 61175 (October 9, 2015). 24 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s cash deposit rate) will be liquidated at the rate for the PRC-wide entity.25 Cash Deposit Requirements The following per-unit 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 by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Jacobi, Datong, 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; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which they were reviewed; (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 equal to the weighted-average dumping margin for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 2.42 USD/kg); and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter(s) that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These per-unit cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Disclosure We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days of the date of publication of this notice to parties 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)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR.

Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of China: 
Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2014-2015

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: For the final results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People's 
Republic of China, we find that sales were made at less than normal 
value. The period of review is April 1, 2014, through March 31, 2015. 
Based upon our analysis of the comments received, we made changes to 
the margin calculations for these final results of the antidumping duty 
administrative review. The final weighted-average dumping margins are 
listed below in the ``Final Results of the Review'' section of this 
notice.

DATES: Effective September 8, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bob Palmer or Frances Veith, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution 
Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-9068, or (202)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department of Commerce (``Department'') published the 
Preliminary Results \1\ on March 4, 2016. For events subsequent to the 
Preliminary Results, see the Department's final Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.\2\ On June 13, 2016,\3\ in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''), the 
Department extended the deadline for issuing the final results by 60 
days. The deadline for the final results is August 31, 2016.

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

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the Order \5\ is certain activated 
carbon. The products are currently classifiable under the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') subheading 3802.1000. 
Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, the written description of the scope of the order remains 
dispositive.\6\

description of the Scope of the Order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Analysis of Comments Received

    In the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we addressed all issues 
raised in parties' case and rebuttal briefs. In Appendix I to this 
notice, we have provided a list of the issues raised by parties. The 
Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file in 
the Central Records Unit (``CRU''), Room B8024 of the main Department 
of Commerce building, as well as electronically via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (``ACCESS''). ACCESS is available to registered users at 
https://access.trade.gov and it is available to all parties in the CRU. 
In addition, parties can directly access a complete version of the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum on the Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Issues and Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we have made 
certain revisions to the margin calculations for Jacobi, Datong 
Juqiang, and the non-examined, separate rate respondents.\7\ Further, 
the Surrogate Values Memo \8\ contains descriptions of our changes to 
the surrogate values.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

(``PRC''): Surrogate Values for the Final Results,'' dated 
concurrently with this notice (``Surrogate Values Memo'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined 
that Carbon Activated Tianjin Co. Ltd. had no shipments during the 
period of review (``POR'').\9\ We have received no information to 
contradict this determination. Therefore, the Department continues to 
determine that Carbon Activated Tianjin Co. Ltd. had no shipments of 
subject merchandise during the POR, and will issue appropriate 
liquidation instructions that are consistent with our ``automatic 
assessment'' clarification, for these final results.\10\

Separate Rate Respondents

    In our Preliminary Results, we determined that the following 
companies (including both mandatory respondents) met the criteria for 
separate rate status:
     Beijing Pacific Activated Carbon Products Co., Ltd.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ In the first administrative review, the Department found 
Beijing Pacific Activated Carbon Products Co., Ltd., Ningxia 
Guanghua Cherishmet Activated Carbon Co., Ltd., and Guanghua are a 
single entity and there is no information on the record to indicate 
the facts have changed. Therefore, we continue to treat these 
companies as a single entity. See Certain Activated Carbon From the 
People's Republic of China: Notice of Preliminary Results of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Extension of Time Limits 
for the Final Results, 74 FR 21317 (May 7, 2009), unchanged in First 
Administrative Review of Certain Activated Carbon from the People's 
Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative

    \12\ See Preliminary Results, 81 FR 11514; Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum at 6-11.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We have received no comments or argument since the issuance of the 
Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsideration of these 
determinations. Therefore, the Department continues to find that the 
companies listed above meet the criteria for a separate rate.

Rate for Non-Examined Separate Rate Respondents

    In the Preliminary Results,\13\ and consistent with the 
Department's practice,\14\ we assigned the non-examined, separate rate 
companies a rate equal to the weighted average of the calculated 
weighted-average dumping margins for the mandatory respondents that are 
not zero, de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) or based entirely on 
facts available, weighted by the total U.S. sales quantities from the 
public version of the submissions from the mandatory respondents.\15\ 
No parties commented on the methodology for calculating this separate 
rate. For the final results, we continue to apply this approach, as it 
is consistent with the intent of section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act and 
our use of section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.\16\

Final Results of the Review

    For companies subject to this review, which established their 
eligibility for a separate rate, the Department determines that the 
following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the POR from April 
1, 2014, through March 31, 2015:

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

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

    The Department finds that 181 companies for which a review was

[[Page 62090]]

requested did not establish eligibility for a separate rate because 
they either failed to provide a timely response to a separate rate 
application (``SRA''), to a supplemental questionnaire, or did not file 
a SRA or a separate rate certification (``SRC'').\20\ As such, we 
determine these companies, listed in Appendix II of this notice, to be 
part of the PRC-wide entity. Because no party requested a review of the 
PRC-wide entity and the Department no longer considers the PRC-wide 
entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative 
reviews,\21\ we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, 
the weighted-average dumping margin for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 2.42 
USD/kg) \22\ is not subject to change as a result of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ In the second administrative review of the Order, the 
Department determined that it would calculate per-unit weighted-
average dumping margins and assessment rates for all future reviews. 
See Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of China: 
Final Results and Partial Rescission of Second Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 75 FR 70208, 70211 (November 17, 2010).
    \18\ In the third administrative review of the Order, the 
Department found that Jacobi Carbons AB, Tianjin Jacobi 
International Trading Co. Ltd., and Jacobi Carbons Industry 
(Tianjin) are a single entity and, because there were no changes to 
the facts which supported that decision since that determination was 
made, we continue to find that these companies are part of a single 
entity for this administrative review. See Certain Activated Carbon

Memorandum.
    \19\ In the first administrative review of the Order, the 
Department found that Beijing Pacific Activated Carbon Products Co., 
Ltd., Ningxia Guanghua Cherishmet Activated Carbon Co., Ltd., and 
Ningxia Guanghua Activated Carbon Co., Ltd. are a single entity and, 
because there were no changes to the facts which supported that 
decision since that determination, we continue to find that these 
companies are part of a single entity for this administrative 
review. See Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of

    \20\ Two companies, Beijing Embrace Technology Co. Ltd. 
(``Beijing Embrace'') and Shanxi Carbon Industry Co., Ltd. (``Shanxi 
Carbon''), did not establish eligibility for a separate rate because 
Beijing Embrace and Shanxi Carbon failed to provide a timely 
response to a separate rate application (``SRA'') or to a 
supplemental questionnaire and 179 companies did not establish 
eligibility for a separate rate because they did not provide the 
Department with a response to a SRA or a separate rate certification 
(``SRC''). See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 9.

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

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department has determined, 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 these final 
results of this review.
    For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above the de minimis threshold (i.e., 0.50 percent), 
the Department will calculate importer-specific ad valorem assessment 
rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total entered 
value of sales. Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific ad valorem 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    As the Department stated in the most recent administrative 
review,\23\ we will continue to direct CBP to assess importer-specific 
assessment rates \24\ based on per-unit (i.e., per-kilogram) rates. 
Specifically, we calculated importer-specific, antidumping duty 
assessment rates on a per-unit rate basis by dividing the total amount 
of dumping for each importer by the total sales quantity of subject 
merchandise sold to that importer during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \23\ See Certain Activated Carbon from the People's Republic of 
China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 
2013-2014, 80 FR 61172, 61175 (October 9, 2015).
    \24\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to a refinement in the Department's non-market economy 
(``NME'') practice, for sales that were not reported in the U.S. sales 
data submitted by companies individually examined during this review, 
the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate entries associated with 
those sales at the rate for the PRC-wide entity. In addition, if the 
Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of 
the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that 
exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's cash deposit rate) 
will be liquidated at the rate for the PRC-wide entity.\25\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \25\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Assessment 
Practice Refinement, 76 FR at 65694.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following per-unit 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 by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Jacobi, 
Datong, 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; (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above 
that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 
exporter-specific rate published for the most recently completed 
segment of this proceeding in which they were reviewed; (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 equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margin for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 2.42 
USD/kg); and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which 
have not received their own separate rate, the cash deposit rate will 
be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter(s) that supplied that non-
PRC exporter. These per-unit cash deposit requirements, when imposed, 
shall remain in effect until further notice.
