Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the 
reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we made 
revisions to our preliminary calculations of the weighted-average

Rate for Non-Examined Companies

    The statute and the Department's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for 
examination when the Department limits its examination in an 
administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. 
Generally, the Department looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which 
provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market 
economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for 
companies which were not selected for individual review in an 
administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-
others rate is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted average dumping margins established for 
exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero 
or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the 
basis of facts available{time} .''
    In this review, we calculated weighted-average dumping margins for 
SAS-Solartech and Motech that are not zero, de minimis, or determined 
entirely on the basis of facts available. With two respondents, we 
normally calculate (A) a weighted-average of the dumping margins 
calculated for the mandatory respondents; (B) a simple average of the 
dumping margins calculated for the mandatory respondents; and (C) a 
weighted-average of the dumping margins calculated for the mandatory 
respondents using each company's publicly-ranged values for the 
merchandise under consideration. We compare (B) and (C) to (A) and 
select the rate closest to (A) as the most appropriate rate for all 
other companies.\7\ Accordingly, we have applied a rate of 4.10 percent 
to the non-selected companies, as set forth in the chart below.\8\

Disclosure

    The Department intends to disclose the calculations performed for 
these final results of review within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department shall determine, 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 this 
administrative review in the Federal Register.
    Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\9\ Where the 
Department calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the 
total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total 
sales quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will 
direct CBP to assess importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rates 
based on the resulting per-unit rates.\10\ Where an importer- (or 
customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de 
minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to 
collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.\11\ Where an 
importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero 
or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.\12\

    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the methodology described in 
the ``Rates for Non-Examined Companies'' section, above.
    Consistent with the Department's assessment practice, for entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by SAS-Solartech, 
Motech, or the non-examined companies for which the producer did not 
know that its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if 
there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.\13\

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 for by section 751(a)(2)(C) 
of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for the companies listed in 
these final results will be equal to the weighted-average dumping 
margins established in the

[[Page 31557]]

final results of this review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers 
or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment 
of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 
company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment 
in which the company was reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm 
covered in this review or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) 
investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the 
rate established for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to 
be 19.50 percent,\14\ the all-others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation. 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 to Interested Parties Regarding Administrative Protective 
Order

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
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), 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 the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).

    Dated: June 29, 2017.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
