Final Rescission of New Shipper Review

    In the Preliminary Rescission, the Department announced its 
preliminary

[[Page 28820]]

intent to rescind this review, because SXT's request for an NSR 
included an inaccurately certified statement that SXT is not affiliated 
with any PRC exporter or producer that exported subject merchandise 
(i.e., passenger tires from the PRC) to the United States during the 
period of time examined in the original CVD investigation (i.e., 
January 1, 2013, through December 31, 2013) and, as such, SXT had not 
satisfied the statutory and regulatory requirements to request an 
NSR.\6\ Based on the Department's complete analysis of all information 
and comments on the record of this review, we make no changes to our 
findings in the Preliminary Rescission. Accordingly, for the reasons 
discussed in the Preliminary Rescission and the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, we have determined to rescind this NSR with respect to 
SXT.\7\

from SXT, ``Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the 
People's Republic of China: New Shipper Review Request,'' February 
25, 2016, at Exhibit 2 (certifying that ``since the investigation 
was initiated, {SXT{time}  has never been affiliated with any 
exporter or producer who exported the subject merchandise to the 
United States during the period of investigation including those not 
individually examined during the investigation'').
    \7\ See Preliminary Rescission, 82 FR at 8825; see also 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 3-8; Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment

    Because the Department is rescinding this NSR, we have not 
calculated a company-specific countervailing subsidy rate for SXT. 
SXT's entries during the POR will be assessed at the cash deposit rate 
required at the time of entry, which is the ``all-others'' rate (i.e., 
30.61 percent).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Effective upon publication of this notice of the final rescission 
of this NSR, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection to require a cash deposit for entries of subject merchandise 
from SXT. The following cash deposit requirements will be effective 
upon publication of this rescission for all shipments of subject 
merchandise from SXT entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): 
(1) For subject merchandise produced and exported by SXT, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the all-others rate (i.e., 30.61 
percent); (2) for subject merchandise exported by SXT but not 
manufactured by SXT, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the all-
others rate (i.e., 30.61 percent); and (3) for subject merchandise 
manufactured by SXT but exported by any other party, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate applicable to the exporter. These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

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 countervailing 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 countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double countervailing duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) 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 
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.
    This Department is issuing and publishing these results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 771(i)(1) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.214 and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
