While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

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 weightedaverage dumping margin in these amended final results remains de minimis.10 For customers or importers of 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- or importer-specific ad valorem rates 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 0.69 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.11 We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these amended final results of review.

These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

    The merchandise covered by the order includes all small diameter 
graphite electrodes with a nominal or actual diameter of 400 
millimeters (16 inches) or less and graphite pin joining systems for 
small diameter graphite electrodes. Small diameter graphite electrodes 
and graphite pin joining systems for small diameter graphite electrodes

Ministerial Errors

    Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 
19 CFR 351.224(f) define a ``ministerial error'' as an error ``in 
addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error 
resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any 
other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.'' We analyzed the allegations submitted by the petitioners 
and the Fangda Group, and determined, in accordance with section 751(h) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made ministerial errors in 
calculating the margin for the Fangda Group.\6\

Assistant Secretary Christian Marsh entitled, ``Small Diameter

amended 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 amended final results remains de minimis.\10\ For 
customers or importers of 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- or importer-specific ad valorem rates 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 0.69 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.\11\

[[Page 71482]]

retroactively on any entries made on or after September 9, 2016, the 
date of publication of the Final Results, for all shipments of the 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) No cash 
deposit will be required for subject merchandise exported by Fushun 
Jinly; (2) for subject merchandise exported by the Fangda Group and 
Xuzhou Jianglong, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in 
the ``Amended Final Results of Review'' section; (3) 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 exporter-specific rate; 
(4) 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 
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 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these amended 
final results to interested parties within five days after the public 
announcement of the amended final results in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b).

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 amended final results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(h) and 19 CFR 351.224(e) of the Act.

    Dated: October 11, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
