While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the subject merchandise is dispositive. Methodology The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (NME) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value (NV) has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see Issues and Decision Memorandum, hereby adopted by this notice.6 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. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is also available in the Central Records Unit, 6 A list of topics discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is provided in the Appendix to this notice.

The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we found that nine companies had no shipments during the POR.7 Power Dekor submitted comments stating the Department made an inadvertent error in the Preliminary Results by not recognizing Power Dekor’s timely filed no-shipment letter.8 We have reviewed Power Dekor’s comments and noshipment letter and have found that Power Dekor had no shipments during this POR.9 Therefore, for these Final Results, we find that a total of ten companies had no shipments during the POR.10 Consistent with our ‘‘automatic assessment’’ clarification, we will issue appropriate instructions with respect to these companies to CBP based on our Final Results.11 In addition, as discussed below, these companies will maintain their rate from the most recent segment in which they participated. Changes Since the Preliminary Results • We granted Power Dekor no shipment status during the POR.12 • We assigned a separate rate to the Fusong Jinlong Group, which includes all four members of the group: Fusong Jinlong Wooden Group Co., Ltd., Fusong Qianqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd., Dalian Qianqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd., and Fusong Jinqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd.13 • We revised the calculation of the surrogate value for water in Penghong’s margin program by converting MT to KG before applying the water surrogate value to the reported water consumption.14 • We added the value of free of charge inputs to Penghong’s calculation of export price as applicable.15 • We corrected the surrogate values for red oak, jatoba, plastic strip, and overlaying glue that are applicable for Senmao; that were inadvertently assigned incorrect surrogate values in the Preliminary Results.16 • We revised the surrogate value for plywood for Senmao to reflect Romanian Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) 441232 rather than using a simple average of Romanian HTS 44123210 and 44123190.17 Final Results of the Administrative Review The Department determines that twenty companies subject to this review did not establish eligibility for a separate rate. As such, we determine they are part of the PRC-wide entity.18 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,19 we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the rate for the PRC-wide entity is not subject to change as a result of this review. For companies subject to this review that have established their entitlement to a separate rate the Department calculated a separate rate based on the expected method according to 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act. For further discussion see accompanying Issues and Decisions Memorandum at comment 3. For companies subject to this review that have established their eligibility for a separate rate, the Department determines that the following dumping margins exist for the POR from December 1, 2014, through November 30, 2015: Weightedaverage dumping margin Exporter 20 Dalian Penghong Floor Products Co., Ltd./Dalian Shumaike Floor Manufacturing Co., Ltd .....................................................................................................

The Department has received no information to contradict this finding. Therefore, in these Final Results, the Department has applied the separate E:\FR\FM\05JNN1.SGM 05JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 106 / Monday, June 5, 2017 / Notices specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will calculate importer- (or customer)-specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. In these Final Results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in the Final Modification for Reviews.29 Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 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.30 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 (which, as noted above, is not subject to change in this review). In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, 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 deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. Assessment Rates The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.28 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of these Final Results of review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or customer-) asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Jiangsu Keri Wood Co., Ltd. withdrew its respective request for an administrative review within 90 days of the date of publication of the Initiation Notice.24 Accordingly, the Department rescinded this review with respect to Jiangsu Keri Wood Co., Ltd., in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).25 The Department reviewed Jiangsu Keri Wood Co., Ltd. as part of its concurrent new shipper review and intends to issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the results therein.26 With respect to Dongtai Zhangshi Wood Industry Co., Ltd. and Huzhou Muyun Wood Co., Ltd., the Department has found each of these company’s one sale during the POR to be a non-bona fide sale in a concurrent new shipper review (‘‘NSR’’).27 Because the sale subject to this administrative review is the same sale found to be a non-bona fide sale in the new shipper review, and there are no other reviewable sales by either company during the POR, we are rescinding this review with respect to Dongtai Zhangshi Wood Industry Co., Ltd. and Huzhou Muyun Wood Co., Ltd.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 7, 2009, the Department published its final determination in the CVD investigation of OCTG from the PRC.1 On January 20, 2010, the Department published an amended final determination and the CVD order.2 The Court remanded aspects of the Department’s findings for further consideration.3 In particular, in the Remand and Opinion Order, the CIT ordered the Department to clarify or reconsider: (1) Its use of the date of the PRC accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) as a uniform cut-off date for identifying and measuring subsidies in the PRC; (2) its attribution methodology for subsidies received by certain of Changbao’s and TPCO’s subsidiaries; (3) its decision to include Jianli’s freight quote in the benchmark price for steel rounds and billets; and (4) its decision not to tie the benefit received by TPCO from the provision of steel rounds and billets at less-thanadequate remuneration to its sales of seamless steel pipe.4 Finally, the Court granted the Department’s request for a voluntary remand to recalculate the benchmark for steel rounds without Steel Business Briefing (SBB) East Asia pricing data.5 On December 20, 2016, the Department issued its Remand Redetermination.6 In its Remand Redetermination, the Department: (1) Evaluated certain subsidies and determined a date prior to the WTO accession date on which subsidies provided to the respondents could be Countervailing Duty Order, 75 FR 3203 (January 20, 2010) (Amended Final Determination and Order). 3 See TMK IPSCO et al. v.

The resulting calculations changed the CVD rates calculated for Changbao, Jianli, TPCO, and Wuxi, as well as their respective cross-owned companies, and the all-others rate. On May 3, 2017, the CIT sustained the Department’s Remand Redetermination.7 In particular, the Court held that the Remand Redetermination ‘‘adequately address{ed} the concerns raised in the court’s prior decision’’ and was ‘‘supported by substantial evidence.’’ 8 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken,9 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,10 the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The CIT’s May 3, 2017, final judgment affirming the Remand Redetermination constitutes a final decision of that court which is not in harmony with the Amended Final Determination and Order.

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export 
prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in accordance 
with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy 
(NME) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value 
(NV) has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, please see Issues and Decision Memorandum, hereby adopted 
by this notice.\6\ 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. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is also available

Memorandum is provided in the Appendix to this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that nine companies had no 
shipments during the POR.\7\ Power Dekor submitted comments stating the 
Department made an inadvertent error in the Preliminary Results by not 
recognizing Power Dekor's timely filed no-shipment letter.\8\ We have 
reviewed Power Dekor's comments and no-shipment letter and have found 
that Power Dekor had no shipments during this POR.\9\ Therefore, for 
these Final Results, we find that a total of ten companies had no 
shipments during the POR.\10\ Consistent with our ``automatic 
assessment'' clarification, we will issue appropriate instructions with 
respect to these companies to CBP based on our Final Results.\11\ In 
addition, as discussed below, these companies will maintain their rate 
from the most recent segment in which they participated.

     We granted Power Dekor no shipment status during the 
POR.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at comment 4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     We assigned a separate rate to the Fusong Jinlong Group, 
which includes all four members of the group: Fusong Jinlong Wooden 
Group Co., Ltd., Fusong Qianqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd., Dalian 
Qianqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd., and Fusong Jinqiu Wooden Product Co., 
Ltd.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at comment 6.

     We revised the calculation of the surrogate value for

applying the water surrogate value to the reported water 
consumption.\14\

     We revised the surrogate value for plywood for Senmao to 
reflect Romanian Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) 441232 rather than 
using a simple average of Romanian HTS 44123210 and 44123190.\17\

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    The Department determines that twenty companies subject to this 
review did not establish eligibility for a separate rate. As such, we 
determine they are part of the PRC-wide entity.\18\ 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,\19\ we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide 
entity. Thus, the rate for the PRC-wide entity is not subject to change 
as a result of this review. For companies subject to this review that 
have established their entitlement to a separate rate the Department 
calculated a separate rate based on the expected method according to 
735(c)(5)(A) of the Act. For further discussion see accompanying Issues 
and Decisions Memorandum at comment 3.

Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an

[[Page 25769]]

administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. 
Jiangsu Keri Wood Co., Ltd. withdrew its respective request for an 
administrative review within 90 days of the date of publication of the 
Initiation Notice.\24\ Accordingly, the Department rescinded this 
review with respect to Jiangsu Keri Wood Co., Ltd., in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).\25\ The Department reviewed Jiangsu Keri Wood 
Co., Ltd. as part of its concurrent new shipper review and intends to 
issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the results therein.\26\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \20\ The mandatory respondents for this review included Dalian 
Penghong Floor Products Co., Ltd./Dalian Shumaike Floor 
Manufacturing Co., Ltd. and Jiangsu Senmao Bamboo and Wood Industry 
Co., Ltd.
    \21\ See Issues and Decisions Memorandum at comment 5.
    \22\ In prior reviews, the Department determined that the four 
affiliated companies that comprise the Fusong Jinlong Group, namely, 
Fusong Jinlong Wooden Group Co., Ltd., Fusong Qianqiu Wooden Product 
Co., Ltd., Dalian Qianqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd., and Fusong 
Jinqiu Wooden Product Co., Ltd., are sufficiently interrelated that 
for antidumping analysis purposes they should be treated together, 
and should together be assigned the separate rate on a common basis. 
The Department has received no information to contradict this 
finding. Therefore, in these Final Results, the Department has 
applied the separate rate on a common basis to the four companies 
that comprise the Fusong Jinlong Group.
    \23\ On September 30, 2014, the Department determined that Linyi 
Youyou Wood Co., Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Shanghai 
Lizhong Wood Products Co., Ltd./The Lizhong Wood Industry Limited 
Company of Shanghai. See Multilayered Wood Flooring from the 
People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances 
Review, 79 FR 58740 (September 30, 2014). Because Shanghai Lizhong 
Wood Products Co., Ltd./The Lizhong Wood Industry Limited Company of 
Shanghai no longer exists as a legal entity, the rate is assigned to 
Linyi Youyou Wood Co., Ltd.
    \24\ See Letter from Jiangsu Keri Wood Co., Ltd. to the 
Department regarding ``Withdrawing of Review Request'' dated 
February 22, 2016.
    \25\ See Preliminary Results.
    \26\ See Multilayered Wood Flooring from the People's Republic 
of China: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty 
New Shipper Reviews; 2014-2015, dated concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With respect to Dongtai Zhangshi Wood Industry Co., Ltd. and Huzhou 
Muyun Wood Co., Ltd., the Department has found each of these company's 
one sale during the POR to be a non-bona fide sale in a concurrent new 
shipper review (``NSR'').\27\ Because the sale subject to this 
administrative review is the same sale found to be a non-bona fide sale 
in the new shipper review, and there are no other reviewable sales by 
either company during the POR, we are rescinding this review with 
respect to Dongtai Zhangshi Wood Industry Co., Ltd. and Huzhou Muyun 
Wood Co., Ltd.

of China: Rescission of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews; 2014-
2015, 81 FR 74393 (October 26, 2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\28\ The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the publication date of these Final Results of review. In 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or 
customer-) specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to 
this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-
average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the 
Department will calculate importer- (or customer)-specific assessment 
rates for merchandise subject to this review. In these Final Results, 
the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted 
in the Final Modification for Reviews.\29\ Where either the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 
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.\30\ 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 (which, as 
noted above, is not subject to change in this review).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \28\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \29\ See Antidumping Proceeding Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) 
(Final Modification for Reviews).
    \30\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, 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 deposits of estimated duties, 
where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these Final Results of 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 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above the 
cash deposit rate will be their respective rate established in the 
Final Results of this review, except if the rate is zero or de minimis 
(i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then the cash deposit rate will be zero; 
(2) for previously investigated 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 recent period; (3) 
for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found 
to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that 
for the PRC-wide entity; 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 that supplied that 
non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure

    The Department intends to disclose calculations performed for these 
Final Results to the parties within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice.\31\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \31\ See 19 CFR 351.224(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order (APO)

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
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 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 violation which 
is subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: May 26, 2017.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
