A list of the issues which any party raised, and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, follows in the appendix 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). ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov and is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results For the purposes of these final results, the Department made no changes to the Preliminary Results. PRC-Wide Entity For the purposes of the final results of this administrative review, the Department finds that the following entities are part of the PRC-wide entity because they failed to submit both a Q&V response and information to establish eligibility for a separate rate: (1) Kam Kiu; (2) Atlas Integrated Manufacturing Ltd.; (3) Classic & Contemporary Inc.; (4) Dongguan Golden Tiger Hardware Industrial Co., Ltd.; (5) Jiaxing Jackson Travel Products Co., Ltd.; (6) Taishan City Kam Kiu Aluminium Extrusion Co., Ltd.; (7) Shenyang Yuanda Aluminium Industry Engineering Co. Ltd.; (8) Sincere Profit Limited; and (9) Suzhou New Hongji Precision Part Co. The Department’s change in policy regarding conditional review of the PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.7 Under this policy, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically 7 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, 65970 (November 4, 2013).

The petitioner 8 requested a review of the PRC-wide entity in the instant review; therefore, the PRC-wide entity is currently under review and the rate for the PRC-wide entity is subject to change. Adjustments for Countervailable Subsidies Because no mandatory respondent established eligibility for an adjustment under section 777A(f) of the Act for countervailable domestic subsidies, the Department, for these final results, did not make an adjustment pursuant to section 777A(f) of the Act for countervailable domestic subsidies for the separate-rate recipients.9 Pursuant to section 772(c)(1)(C) of the Act, we made an adjustment for countervailable export subsidies for tenKsolar. We calculated this adjustment as the simple average of the countervailable export subsidies determined for the mandatory respondents in the 2014 (i.e., most recently completed) CVD administrative review 10 and deducted this amount from the weighted-average dumping margin assigned to tenKsolar.11 The adjusted rate for tenKsolar is 85.96 percent. Pursuant to section 772(c)(1)(C) of the Act, we also made an adjustment for countervailable export subsidies for the PRC-wide entity. We adjusted the PRCwide entity cash deposit rate by the lowest countervailable export subsidy determined for the mandatory respondents in the 2014 (i.e., most recently completed) CVD administrative review.12 Final Results of Review The Department determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the 2015–2016 POR: Weighted-average dumping margin (percent) Exporter Margin adjusted for liquidation and cash deposit purposes (percent) 86.01 86.01 85.96 85.96 tenKsolar (Shanghai) Co., Ltd .....................................................................................................................

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review in the Federal Register.

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 and/or 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 antidumping duties and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with September anniversary dates. In accordance with the Department’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. DATES: Applicable November 13, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:38 Nov 09, 2017 Jkt 244001 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with September anniversary dates. All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, certifications, or comments or actions by the Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting time. Notice of No Sales If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (POR), it must notify the Department within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All submissions must be filed electronically at http://access.trade.gov in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303.1 Such submissions are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy must be served on every party on the Department’s service list. Respondent Selection In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to place the CBP data on the record within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 30 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection should be submitted seven days after the placement of the CBP data on the record of this review. Parties wishing to submit rebuttal comments should submit those comments five days after the deadline for the initial comments. In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, the Department has found that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.ee.g., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed 1 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, the Department will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (e.g., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, if the Department determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, the Department will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, the Department will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value (Q&V) Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete Q&V data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that has requested a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that the Department may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    For the purposes of these final results, the Department made no 
changes to the Preliminary Results.

PRC-Wide Entity

    For the purposes of the final results of this administrative 
review, the Department finds that the following entities are part of 
the PRC-wide entity because they failed to submit both a Q&V response 
and information to establish eligibility for a separate rate: (1) Kam 
Kiu; (2) Atlas Integrated Manufacturing Ltd.; (3) Classic & 
Contemporary Inc.; (4) Dongguan Golden Tiger Hardware Industrial Co., 
Ltd.; (5) Jiaxing Jackson Travel Products Co., Ltd.; (6) Taishan City 
Kam Kiu Aluminium Extrusion Co., Ltd.; (7) Shenyang Yuanda Aluminium 
Industry Engineering Co. Ltd.; (8) Sincere Profit Limited; and (9) 
Suzhou New Hongji Precision Part Co.
    The Department's change in policy regarding conditional review of 
the PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.\7\ Under 
this policy, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a 
party specifically

[[Page 52267]]

requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of the entity. The 
petitioner \8\ requested a review of the PRC-wide entity in the instant 
review; therefore, the PRC-wide entity is currently under review and 
the rate for the PRC-wide entity is subject to change.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ 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, 65970 (November 4, 
2013).
    \8\ The petitioner is the Aluminum Extrusions Fair Trade 
Committee.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adjustments for Countervailable Subsidies

    Because no mandatory respondent established eligibility for an 
adjustment under section 777A(f) of the Act for countervailable 
domestic subsidies, the Department, for these final results, did not 
make an adjustment pursuant to section 777A(f) of the Act for 
countervailable domestic subsidies for the separate-rate recipients.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum, at 17-18.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to section 772(c)(1)(C) of the Act, we made an adjustment 
for countervailable export subsidies for tenKsolar. We calculated this 
adjustment as the simple average of the countervailable export 
subsidies determined for the mandatory respondents in the 2014 (i.e., 
most recently completed) CVD administrative review \10\ and deducted 
this amount from the weighted-average dumping margin assigned to 
tenKsolar.\11\ The adjusted rate for tenKsolar is 85.96 percent.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to section 772(c)(1)(C) of the Act, we also made an 
adjustment for countervailable export subsidies for the PRC-wide 
entity. We adjusted the PRC-wide entity cash deposit rate by the lowest 
countervailable export subsidy determined for the mandatory respondents 
in the 2014 (i.e., most recently completed) CVD administrative 
review.\12\

Final Results of Review

    The Department determines that the following weighted-average 
dumping margins exist for the 2015-2016 POR:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                        Margin adjusted

             Exporter                 dumping margin    and cash deposit
                                        (percent)           purposes
                                                           (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
tenKsolar (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.....              86.01              85.96
PRC-wide Entity...................              86.01              85.96
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, as explained above, the Department determines that 
the following companies are part of the PRC-wide entity: (1) Kam Kiu; 
(2) Atlas Integrated Manufacturing Ltd.; (3) Classic & Contemporary 
Inc.; (4) Dongguan Golden Tiger Hardware Industrial Co., Ltd.; (5) 
Jiaxing Jackson Travel Products Co., Ltd.; (6) Taishan City Kam Kiu 
Aluminium Extrusion Co., Ltd.; (7) Shenyang Yuanda Aluminium Industry 
Engineering Co. Ltd.; (8) Sincere Profit Limited; and (9) Suzhou New 
Hongji Precision Part Co.

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department will determine, and 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 review in the Federal Register. Consistent with 
the Department's assessment practice in NME cases, if the Department 
determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of subject 
merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under the exporter's 
case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the 
PRC-wide rate.\13\ For the companies eligible for a separate rate, the 
Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on the 
company's entries of subject merchandise at the rates listed above in 
the section ``Final Results of Review.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
eligible for a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will that listed 
above in the section ``Final Results of Review;'' (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 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 exporter-specific rate 
published for the most-recently completed segment of this proceeding in 
which the exporter was reviewed; (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 established for the PRC-wide 
entity, which is 85.96 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 with the subject merchandise. These 
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 and/or 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 antidumping duties and/
or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of 
doubled 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

[[Page 52268]]

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: November 3, 2017.
