The Department intends to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise from the PRC-wide entity, including entries of subject merchandise from Taihe, at 156.87 percent (the PRC-wide rate).7 For Niran and Niran Biochemical, which the Department determined had no shipments during the POR, all suspended entries will be liquidated at the assessment rate for the PRC-wide entity.8 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this AR for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930,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 exporters of merchandise from the PRC 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 recently completed segment of this proceeding; (2) 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 the rate for the PRC- wide entity, 156.87 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 exporter(s) of merchandise from the PRC that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties 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 Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Notification to Interested Parties This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to the 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 notification of the destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. We are issuing and publishing these results and this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d) and 351.221(b)(5). Dated: June 8, 2017. Ronald K.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jun 13, 2017 Jkt 241001 the LTFV imports of finished carbon steel flanges from Spain.2 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order is finished carbon steel flanges from Spain.3 Antidumping Duty Order As stated above, on June 7, 2017, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final determination that the industry in the United States producing finished carbon steel flanges is materially injured by reason of the LTFV imports of finished carbon steel flanges from Spain.4 Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing this antidumping duty order. Because the ITC determined that imports of finished carbon steel flanges from Spain are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Spain entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the NV of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of finished carbon steel flanges from Spain. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of finished carbon steel flanges from Spain entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after February 8, 2017, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination,5 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication in the Federal Register of the ITC’s final injury determination, as further described below. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant entries of finished carbon 2 See Letter from the ITC regarding finished carbon steel flanges from Spain, dated June 7, 2017 (ITC Letter). See also Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from Spain Investigation No. 731–TA–1333 (Final) USITC Publication 4696 (June 2017) (ITC Report). 3 For a full description of the scope of this order, see the Appendix to this notice. 4 See ITC Letter and ITC Report. 5 See Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from Spain: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 82 FR 9723 (February 8, 2017) (Preliminary Determination). PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27229 steel flanges from Spain. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties equal to the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication in the Federal Register of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins listed below.6 The ‘‘all-others’’ rates apply to all producers or exporters not specifically listed. Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months, except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. We received no such request. In the underlying investigation, the Department published the Preliminary Determination on February 8, 2017. Therefore, the unextended period, beginning on the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination, ended on June 8, 2017. Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of finished carbon steel flanges from Spain entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after June 8, 2017, the date on which the provisional measures expired, until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s injury determinations in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of publication of the ITC’s determination in the Federal Register. Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins The estimated weighted-average dumping margins for this antidumping order are as follows: 6 See E:\FR\FM\14JNN1.SGM section 736(a)(3) of the Act. 14JNN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was 
designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) and the European 
Commission (Commission) to provide companies on both sides of the 
Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements 
when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United 
States in support of transatlantic commerce. On July 12, 2016, the 
Commission deemed the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (Privacy Shield) 
adequate to enable data transfers under EU law, and on August 1, 2016, 
the DOC began accepting self-certifications from U.S. companies to join 
the program (81 FR 47752; July 22, 2016). For more information on the 
Privacy Shield, visit www.privacyshield.gov.
    As described in Annex I of the Privacy Shield, the DOC and the

specific, non-monetary equitable relief (such as access, correction, 
deletion, or return of the individual's data in question) necessary to
