The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 41 days after publication of the final results of this administrative review. For Electrolux, the Department calculated an ad valorem importerspecific assessment rate equal to the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of those sales. Where an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate these entries without regard to antidumping duties pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). The Department’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Electrolux, for which the company did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States.4 In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in the less-than fair-value (LTFV) investigation (i.e., 36.52 percent),5 if there is no rate for the intermediary company(ies) involved in the transaction. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Electrolux will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recentlycompleted segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently4 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) for a full discussion of this practice. 5 See Large Residential Washers From Mexico and the Republic of Korea: Antidumping Duty Orders, 78 FR 11148 (February 15, 2013).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice 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). Timely written notification of return/ destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.

These HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes; the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we found that one company, JA Solar Technology Co., Ltd. (JA Solar), had no shipments during the POR.6 Consistent with the Department’s assessment practice in NME cases, we completed the review with respect to JA Solar.7 The Department placed on the record a memorandum regarding JA Solar’s no shipment claim and shipment data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).8 On May 1, 2017, JA Solar timely submitted comments regarding the Department’s memorandum on JA Solar’s no shipment claim. No parties submitted rebuttal comments regarding JA Solar’s no shipment claim. For these final results, we continue to find that JA Solar had no shipments during the POR. As noted in the ‘‘Assessment’’ section below, the Department will issue appropriate instructions with respect to this company to CBP based on our final results.9 In addition, JA Solar will maintain its dumping margin from the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which it participated. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs filed by parties in this review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice.

Weightedaverage dumping margin 9.61 9.61 9.61 9.61 9.61 9.61 9.61 9.61 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,12 we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the weighted-average dumping margin for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 165.04 percent) is not subject to change as a result of this review.13 Assessment The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. 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 11 See Memorandum, ‘‘Calculation of the Final Dumping Margin for Separate Rate Recipients,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. 12 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963, 65969–70 (November 4, 2013). 13 See Certain Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order; and Amended Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Countervailing Duty Order, 80 FR 8592 (February 18, 2015).

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. Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, the Department calculated importer- (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to the importer- (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to the importer- (or customer).14 Where the Department calculated an importer- (or customer)-specific weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to the importer- (or customer) 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.15 Where an importer- (or customer)specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation. Where either the respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 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.16 For merchandise whose sale/entry was not reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, but that entered under the case number of that exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined exporter’s cash deposit rate), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.17 14 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 15 Id. 16 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 2012). 17 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), for a full discussion of this practice.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that one company, JA Solar 
Technology Co., Ltd. (JA Solar), had no shipments during the POR.\6\ 
Consistent with the Department's assessment practice in NME cases, we 
completed the review with respect to JA Solar.\7\ The Department placed 
on the record a memorandum regarding JA Solar's no shipment claim and 
shipment data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).\8\ On May 
1, 2017, JA Solar timely submitted comments regarding the Department's 
memorandum on JA Solar's no shipment claim. No parties submitted 
rebuttal comments regarding JA Solar's no shipment claim. For these 
final results, we continue to find that JA Solar had no shipments 
during the POR. As noted in the ``Assessment'' section below, the 
Department will issue appropriate instructions with respect to this 
company to CBP based on our final results.\9\ In addition, JA Solar 
will maintain its dumping margin from the most recently completed 
segment of this proceeding in which it participated.

rates.\10\ No parties commented on this preliminary decision. For these 
final results, we continue to find that the eight companies listed in 
the table in the ``Final Results'' section of this notice are eligible 
for separate rates status. The Department assigned a dumping margin to 
the separate rate companies that it did not individually examine, but 
which demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate, based on the 
mandatory respondent's dumping margin.\11\

    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,\12\ we did not conduct 
a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the weighted-average dumping 
margin for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 165.04 percent) is not subject to 
change as a result of this review.\13\

Assessment

    The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. 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. Where 
the respondent reported reliable entered values, the Department 
calculated importer- (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to the 
importer- (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to the importer- (or customer).\14\ Where the 
Department calculated an importer- (or customer)-specific weighted-
average dumping margin by dividing the total amount of dumping for 
reviewed sales to the importer- (or customer) 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.\15\ Where an importer- (or customer)- 
specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis, the 
Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the 
time of liquidation. Where either the respondent's weighted average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 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.\16\

    For merchandise whose sale/entry was not reported in the U.S. sales 
database submitted by an exporter individually examined during this 
review, but that entered under the case number of that exporter (i.e., 
at the individually-examined exporter's cash deposit rate), the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide 
rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter under 
review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended 
entries that entered under that exporter's case number will be 
liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.\17\

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; (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 the rate for the PRC-wide entity 
(i.e., 165.04 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 that supplied that 
non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final 
results within five days of publication of this notice in the Federal 
Register in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    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.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders (APO)

    This notice also serves as a 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, 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.
    This notice of the final results of this antidumping duty 
administrative review is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(5).
