SUMMARY: As a result of this fourth sunset review, the Department of Commerce (the Department) finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, at the level indicated in the ‘‘Final Results of Sunset Review’’ section of this notice, infra.

As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) fourth sunset review of the Order. The merchandise covered by the order is silicon metal containing at least 96.00 percent, but less than 99.99 percent of silicon by weight. Also covered by the order is silicon metal containing between 89.00 and 96.00 percent silicon by weight but which contains a higher aluminum content than the silicon metal containing at least 96.00 percent but less than 99.99 percent silicon by weight (58 FR 27542, May 10, 1993). Silicon metal is currently provided for under subheadings 2804.69.10 and 2804.69.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTSUS) as a chemical product, but is commonly referred to as a metal. Semiconductor-grade silicon (silicon metal containing by weight not less than 99.99 percent of silicon and provided for in subheading 2804.61.00 of the HTSUS) is not subject to this order. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description remains dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received A complete discussion of all issues raised in this sunset review, specifically the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail if the Order were to be revoked, is provided in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is 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 30841 Electronic Service System (ACCESS).

In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Results of Sunset Review Pursuant to section 752(c)(3) of the Act, the Department determines that revocation of the Order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and that the magnitude of the dumping margins likely to prevail would be weighted-average dumping margins up to 139.49 percent. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as the only 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. Timely notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective orders is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. We are issuing and publishing the results and notice in accordance with sections 751(c), 752(c), and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218. Dated: June 27, 2017. Ronald K.

A list of the issues addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is appended to this notice. 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).

Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that Zhangzhou Hongda Import & Export Trading Co., Ltd. (Hongda) and Zhangzhou Gangchang Canned Foods Co., Ltd. Fujian and Zhangzhou Gangchang Canned Foods Co., Ltd (collectively Gangchang) did not have any reviewable entries during the POR.5 In particular, we found that Hongda and Gangchang submitted timely certifications of no shipments, entries, or sales of subject merchandise during the POR, and we did not receive any information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) indicating there were reviewable entries for those companies during the POR. Consistent with the Department’s assessment practice in non-market economy cases, we stated in the Preliminary Results that the Department would not rescind the review in these circumstances but, rather, would complete the review with respect to Hongda and Gangchang and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.6 We 4 For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see memorandum to Ronald K.

As such, in these final results, we continue to determine that Hongda and Gangchang had no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Final Results of Review The Department received no comments disagreeing with the methodology or analysis employed in the Preliminary Results. Accordingly, the Department continues to determine that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists in these final results: Exporter Dezhou Kaihang Agricultural Science Technology Co. Ltd ... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 0.00 Additionally, in the Preliminary Results, we determined that the second mandatory respondent, Linyi City Kangfa Foodstuff Drinkable Co., Ltd. (Kangfa), failed to establish its eligibility for a separate rate and preliminarily determined to treat Kangfa as part of the PRC-wide entity.7 We also preliminarily found that the remaining 98 exporters subject to this review did not establish their eligibility for separate rate status and that they were, thus, part of the PRC-wide entity. No parties commented on this issue following the Preliminary Results. Therefore, in these final results, we continue to determine that Kangfa and the other 98 exporters are part of the PRC-wide entity.8 Because no party 7 Id., at 12564. that are subject to this administrative review that are considered to be part of the PRC-wide entity are: (1) Agrogentra & Co., Ltd., (2) Ayecue (Liaocheng) Foodstuff Co., Ltd., (3) Blue Field (Sichuan) Food Industrial Co., Ltd., (4) Cargo Services (China) Limited, (5) Casia Global Logistics Co., Ltd., (6) Changzhou Chen Rong-Da Carpet Co., Ltd., (7) Chaoda Mushroom Co., Ltd., (8) China National Cereals, Oil & Foodstuffs Import & Export Corp., (9) China Processed Food Import & Export Co., (10) Dalian New Century Food Co., Ltd., (11) DHL ISC (Hong Kong) Limited, (12) DSV Air Sea Co., Ltd., (13) Dujiangyan Xingda Foodstuff Co., Ltd., (14) Ever Since Group Co., Ltd., (15) Fujian Blue Lake Foods Co., Ltd., (16) Fujian Golden Banyan Foodstuffs Industrial Co., Ltd., (17) Fujian Haishan Foods Co., Ltd., (18) Fujian Pinghe Baofeng Canned Foods, (19) Fujian Tongfa Foods Group Co., Ltd., (20) Fujian Yuxing Fruits and Vegetables Foodstuffs Development Co., Ltd., (21) Fujian Zishan Group Co., Ltd.,(22) Golden Banyan Foodstuffs Industry Co., Ltd., (23) Guangxi Eastwing Trading Co., Ltd., (24) Guangxi Hengyong Industrial & Commerical Dev.

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. In these final results, Dezhou Kaihang’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero. Accordingly, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the entries reported by Dezhou Kaihang without regard to antidumping duties. The Department also intends to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise from the exporters identified above as being part of the PRC-wide entity (including Kangfa) at the PRC-wide rate, i.e., 308.33 percent. Pursuant to a refinement in the Department’s non-market economy practice, 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.10 Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.11 As noted above, the Department determines that Hongda and Gangchang did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. As a result, any suspended entries that entered under these exporters’ case numbers will be liquidated at the PRCwide rate. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Dezhou Kaihang the cash deposit is zero percent; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters which are not under review in this segment of the proceeding but received a separate rate in a previous segment, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recentlycompleted 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 10 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 11 Id.

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 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 occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a final 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(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 sanctionable violation.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that 
Zhangzhou Hongda Import & Export Trading Co., Ltd. (Hongda) and 
Zhangzhou Gangchang Canned Foods Co., Ltd. Fujian and Zhangzhou 
Gangchang Canned Foods Co., Ltd (collectively Gangchang) did not have 
any reviewable entries during the POR.\5\ In particular, we found that 
Hongda and Gangchang submitted timely certifications of no shipments, 
entries, or sales of subject merchandise during the POR, and we did not 
receive any information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
indicating there were reviewable entries for those companies during the 
POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Preliminary Results, 82 FR at 12564-12565
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with the Department's assessment practice in non-market 
economy cases, we stated in the Preliminary Results that the Department 
would not rescind the review in these circumstances but, rather, would 
complete the review with respect to Hongda and Gangchang and issue 
appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review.\6\ We did not receive any comments following our Preliminary 
Results with respect to this issue. As such, in these final results, we 
continue to determine that Hongda and Gangchang had no reviewable 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR.

    Additionally, in the Preliminary Results, we determined that the 
second mandatory respondent, Linyi City Kangfa Foodstuff Drinkable Co., 
Ltd. (Kangfa), failed to establish its eligibility for a separate rate 
and preliminarily determined to treat Kangfa as part of the 
PRC[hyphen]wide entity.\7\ We also preliminarily found that the 
remaining 98 exporters subject to this review did not establish their 
eligibility for separate rate status and that they were, thus, part of 
the PRC-wide entity.

    No parties commented on this issue following the Preliminary 
Results. Therefore, in these final results, we continue to determine 
that Kangfa and the other 98 exporters are part of the PRC-wide 
entity.\8\ 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, we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide 
entity, and the entity's rate is not subject to change in this 
review.\9\

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has determined, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of 
subject merchandise covered by this review. The Department intends to 
issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of these final results of review. In these final results, 
Dezhou Kaihang's weighted-average dumping margin is zero. Accordingly, 
we will instruct CBP to liquidate the entries reported by Dezhou 
Kaihang without regard to antidumping duties. The Department also 
intends to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise 
from the exporters identified above as being part of the PRC-wide 
entity (including Kangfa) at the PRC-wide rate, i.e., 308.33 percent.
    Pursuant to a refinement in the Department's non-market economy 
practice, 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.\10\ Additionally, if the Department determines that 
an exporter had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended 
entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that 
exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\11\ As noted 
above, the Department determines that Hongda and Gangchang did not have 
any reviewable transactions during the POR. As a result, any suspended 
entries that entered under these exporters' case numbers will be 
liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results 
of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of 
the Act: (1) For Dezhou Kaihang the cash deposit is zero percent; (2) 
for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters which 
are not under review in this segment of the proceeding but received a 
separate rate in a previous segment, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most 
recently-completed 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 (i.e., 
308.33 percent); 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(s) that supplied 
the non-PRC 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 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 occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a final 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(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 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.

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