Imports of PET Film are currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item number 3920.62.00.90. HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Disclosure Analysis of Comments Received Assessment Rates All issues raised in the case brief and rebuttal briefs are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is attached to this notice as an Appendix. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made changes to SRF’s and Jindal’s margin calculations.3 The margins for both SRF and Jindal are now zero. In addition, we adjusted Jindal’s reported U.S. prices to account for changes in its export subsidies in the final results of the companion countervailing duty administrative review.4 Additionally, for companies not selected for individual review, we have assigned a zero rate in the final results of this review, in accordance with section 735(c)(5) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this proceeding within five days after the public announcement of the final results, in accordance with section 735(a) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.224(b). Pursuant to section 751(a)(2(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), 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 assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. Because we have calculated zero margins in the final results of this review for both mandatory respondents during this POR, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries produced and/or exported by Garware, Jindal, SRF, or Vacmet during the POR. Cash Deposit Requirements Final Results of Review The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of PET Film from India entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review, as provided for Weighted-avby section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) the erage dumping Producer or Exporter cash deposit rate for the companies margin under review will be zero; (2) for (percent) previously reviewed or investigated Jindal Poly Films Limited 5 ... 0.00 companies not listed above, the cash SRF Limited .......................... 0.00 deposit rate will continue to be the Garware Polyester Ltd .......... 0.00 company-specific rate published in the Vacmet India ......................... 0.00 completed segment for the most recent period for that company; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 3 See Memoranda to Thomas Gilgunn, Program review, a prior review, or the less-thanManager ‘‘Analysis Memorandum for the Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative fair-value investigation, but the Review of Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate and Strip from India: Jindal Poly Films Limited, will be the rate established in the and ‘‘Analysis Memorandum for the Final Results completed segment for the most recent of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip period for the manufacturer of the from India: SRF Limited,’’ both dated concurrently merchandise; and (4) if neither the with these final results. exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm 4 See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and covered in this or any other completed Strip from India: Preliminary Results and Partial segment of this proceeding, then the Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2014, 81 FR 51186 (August 3, 2016). cash deposit rate will be the all others 5 The Initiation Notice lists the company as Jindal rate for this proceeding, 5.71 percent.

Background

    On August 12, 2016, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published its Preliminary Results of the review of the antidumping duty 
order on CTL plate from the PRC for Hunan Valin Xiangtan Iron and Steel 
Co., Ltd. (``Hunan Valin'') and Wuyang Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (``Wuyang

(August 12, 2016) (``Preliminary Results'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is certain cut-to-length carbon 
steel plate from the PRC. Included in this description is hot-rolled 
iron and non-alloy steel universal mill plates (i.e., flat-rolled 
products rolled on four faces or in a closed box pass, of a width 
exceeding 150 millimeters (``mm'') but not exceeding 1250 mm and of a 
thickness of not less than 4 mm, not in coils and without patterns of 
relief), of rectangular shape, neither clad, plated nor coated with 
metal, whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or 
other nonmetallic substances; and certain iron and non-alloy steel 
flat-rolled products not in coils, of rectangular shape, hot-rolled, 
neither clad, plated nor coated with metal, whether or not painted, 
varnished, or covered with plastics or other nonmetallic substances, 
4.75 mm or more in thickness and of a width which exceeds 150mm and 
measures at least twice the thickness. Included as subject merchandise 
in this order are flat-rolled products of nonrectangular cross-section 
where such cross-section is achieved subsequent to the rolling process 
(i.e., products which have been ``worked after rolling'')--for example, 
products which have been beveled or rounded at the edges. This 
merchandise is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
of the United States (``HTSUS'') under item numbers 7208.40.3030, 
7208.40.3060, 7208.51.0030, 7208.51.0045, 7208.51.0060, 7208.52.0000,

convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope 
of the order is dispositive. Specifically excluded from subject 
merchandise within the scope of the order is grade X-70 steel plate.

Analysis

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that Hunan 
Valin was not eligible for separate rate status and was considered part 
of the PRC-wide entity, and that Wuyang Steel did not have reviewable 
transactions during the POR.\2\ No parties commented on the Preliminary 
Results. For these final results of review, we have continued to treat 
Hunan Valin as part of the PRC-wide entity, and continued to find that 
Wuyang Steel did not have reviewable transactions during the POR. We 
are adopting the Preliminary Decision Memorandum for these final 
results of review.\3\ The Preliminary 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 in the Central Records Unit, room B8024 of the

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
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 the final results of this review. The 
Department intends to instruct CBP to liquidate any entries of subject 
merchandise exported by Hunan Valin at 128.59 percent (the PRC-wide 
rate).
    Additionally, pursuant to the Department's practice in non-market 
economy cases, given that we have continued to find that Wuyang Steel 
had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, any suspended 
entries of subject merchandise exported by Wuyang Steel will be 
liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\4\

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 entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ``Act''): (1) For previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters, which are not under 
review in this segment of the proceeding, but which have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific 
rate published for the most recent period; (2) for all PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, including Hunan Valin, the cash deposit rate will be the 
PRC-wide rate of 128.59 percent; and (3) 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.

Notification of Interested Parties

    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 the antidumping

[[Page 91906]]

duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping 
duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of
