Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.23 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the current rate for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 236 percent). The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted by companies individually examined during the administrative review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries for the PRC-wide entity. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter 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 PRCwide entity.24 The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future cash deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For any companies listed that have a separate 22 See 19 CFR 351.310(d). 23 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). 24 For a full discussion of this practice, see NME Assessment Policy.

These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 the POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

For further details on the changes we made for these final results, see the company-specific analysis memoranda, the Issues and Decision Memorandum, and the final surrogate value memorandum, dated concurrently with this notice. Rate for Non-Examined Separate Rate Respondent In these final results of the review, we calculated a zero or de minimis weighted-average dumping margin for Fushun Jinly, and a weighted-average dumping margin above de minimis for the Fangda Group. Accordingly, we used the weighted-average dumping margin calculated for the Fangda Group, which is 11.49 percent, as the rate for Xuzhou Jianglong Carbon Products Co., Ltd. (Xuzhou Jianglong), a company that was not individually examined and is eligible for a separate rate.5 Final Results of the Review As a result of this administrative review, we determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period February 1, 2014, through January 31, 2015: 62475 Jinly’s weighted-average dumping margin in these final results is de minimis.6 For customers or importers of the the Fangda Group for which we do not have entered values, we will calculate customer- (or importer-) specific per unit duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the customer’s (or importer’s) examined sales of subject merchandise to the total sales quantity associated with those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). For certain customers or importers of the Fangda Group for which we received entered-value information, we will calculate an antidumping duty assessment rate based on customer-/ importer-specific ad valorem rate in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). For Xuzhou Jianglong, the assessment rate is equal to the weighted average dumping margin calculated for the Fangda Group, or 11.49 percent. 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 of 159.64 percent.7 We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this administrative review are addressed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum. A list of the issues raised is attached to this notice as 
Appendix I. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and 
is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). 
ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov, and 
to all parties in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main 
Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of comments received, we made revisions, 
including the valuation of certain factors of production, which changed 
the results for one individually examined company, the Fangda Group,\4\ 
but did not change the results for the other individually examined 
company, Fushun Jinly Petrochemical Co., Ltd. (Fushun Jinly). For 
further details on the changes we made for these final results, see the 
company-specific analysis memoranda, the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, and the final surrogate value memorandum, dated 
concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ We refer to the Fangda Group as a single entity pursuant to 
19 CFR 351.401(f)(1). See Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes From

Rate for Non-Examined Separate Rate Respondent

    In these final results of the review, we calculated a zero or de 
minimis weighted-average dumping margin for Fushun Jinly, and a 
weighted-average dumping margin above de minimis for the Fangda Group. 
Accordingly, we used the weighted-average dumping margin calculated for 
the Fangda Group, which is 11.49 percent, as the rate for Xuzhou 
Jianglong Carbon Products Co., Ltd. (Xuzhou Jianglong), a company that 
was not individually examined and is eligible for a separate rate.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 3-4 for a full 
discussion.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of this administrative review, we determine that the 
following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period 
February 1, 2014, through January 31, 2015:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                Margin

Fushun Jinly Petrochemical Carbon Co., Ltd.................         0.00
Xuzhou Jianglong Carbon Products Co., Ltd..................        11.49
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days after public announcement of the final 
results, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), the Department will determine, 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. For entries of subject merchandise during the 
period of review produced by Fushun Jinly, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties 
because Fushun Jinly's weighted-average dumping margin in these final 
results is de minimis.\6\ For customers or importers of the the Fangda 
Group for which we do not have entered values, we will calculate 
customer- (or importer-) specific per unit duty assessment rates based 
on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the 
customer's (or importer's) examined sales of subject merchandise to the 
total sales quantity associated with those sales, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1). For certain customers or importers of the Fangda 
Group for which we received entered-value information, we will 
calculate an antidumping duty assessment rate based on customer-/
importer-specific ad valorem rate in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). For Xuzhou Jianglong, the assessment rate is equal to 
the weighted average dumping margin calculated for the Fangda Group, or 
11.49 percent. 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 of 159.64 percent.\7\

to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that 
for the PRC-wide entity, which is 159.64 percent; (5) 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

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable 
violation.
    These final results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: September 2, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
