Antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.18 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. Assessment of duties resulting from the final results of this review will pertain only to entries of subject merchandise (i.e., innerspring units from the PRC). Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For PT Sunhere, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required) and the Department will collect cash deposits only on PT Sunhere’s PRCorigin merchandise; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate published for the most recently completed period; (3) 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 PRC-wide rate of 234.51 percent; and (4) for all nonPRC 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, 18 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:29 Nov 06, 2017 Jkt 244001 shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary 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. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213. Dated: October 31, 2017.

Large Power Transformers From the Republic of Korea: Final 
Results of the Expedited First Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty 
Order

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: As a result of this sunset review, the Department of Commerce 
(the Department) finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order on 
large power transformers (LPTs) from the Republic of Korea (Korea) 
would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the 
levels indicated in the ``Final Results of Sunset Review'' section of 
this notice.

DATES: Applicable November 7, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Moses Song, AD/CVD Operations, Office 
VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On July 3, 2017, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the first sunset review of the antidumping duty order on LPTs from 
Korea, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act).\1\ On July 18, 2017, the Department received a notice of 
intent to participate in this review from ABB Inc., (ABB) within the 
deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). ABB claimed interested 
party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a manufacturer of a

    On August 2, 2017, we received a complete substantive response for 
this review from ABB within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no substantive responses from any other 
interested parties, nor was a hearing requested. 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) sunset review of the 
order.

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order covers large liquid dielectric power 
transformers (LPTs) having a top power handling capacity greater than 
or equal to 60,000 kilovolt amperes (60 megavolt amperes), whether 
assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete.
    Incomplete LPTs are subassemblies consisting of the active part and 
any other parts attached to, imported with or invoiced with the active 
parts of LPTs. The ``active part'' of the transformer consists of one 
or more of the following when attached to or otherwise assembled with 
one another: The steel core or shell, the windings, electrical 
insulation between the windings, the mechanical frame for an LPT.
    The product definition encompasses all such LPTs regardless of name 
designation, including but not limited to step-up transformers, step-
down transformers, autotransformers, interconnection transformers, 
voltage regulator transformers, rectifier

transformers, and power rectifier transformers.
    The LPTs subject to this order are currently classifiable under 
subheadings 8504.23.0040, 8504.23.0080 and 8504.90.9540 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the 
HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in this review, including the likelihood of 
continuation or recurrence of dumping in the event of revocation and 
the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail if the order were 
revoked, are addressed in the accompanying Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by 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). ACCESS is available to 
registered users at http://access.trade.gov, and to all parties in the 
Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet 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 sections 751(c)(1) and 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act, we 
determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on LPTs from 
Korea would be likely to 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 29.04 percent.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility

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.
