The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is steel wire garment hangers, fabricated from carbon steel wire, whether or not galvanized or painted, whether or not coated with latex or epoxy or similar gripping materials, and/or whether or not fashioned with paper covers or capes (with or without printing) and/or nonslip features such as saddles or tubes. These products may also be referred to by a commercial designation, such as shirt, suit, strut, caped, or latex (industrial) hangers. Specifically excluded from the scope of the order are wooden, plastic, and other garment hangers that are not made of steel wire. Also excluded from the scope of the order are chrome-plated steel wire garment hangers with a diameter of 3.4 mm or greater. The products subject to the order are currently classified under HTSUS subheadings 7326.20.0020, 7323.99.9060, and 7323.99.9080. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive. Final Results of Review In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined the following: (1) Shanghai Wells sold merchandise at prices below normal value; and (2) Yingqing is not eligible for a separate rate and, therefore, is a part of the PRCwide entity.2 We have not received information contradicting our preliminary finding; thus, the Department finds there is no reason to modify its analysis. Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. For further details of the issues addressed in this proceeding, see the Preliminary Results.3 wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate is not subject to change (i.e., 187.25 percent).5 Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Act. In the Preliminary Results, the Department calculated constructed export prices and export prices in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a nonmarket economy (NME) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. We have not received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this determination. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/.

Results) and the accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is steel wire garment hangers, 
fabricated from carbon steel wire, whether or not galvanized or 
painted, whether or not coated with latex or epoxy or similar gripping 
materials, and/or whether or not fashioned with paper covers or capes 
(with or without printing) and/or nonslip features such as saddles or 
tubes. These products may also be referred to by a commercial 
designation, such as shirt, suit, strut, caped, or latex (industrial) 
hangers. Specifically excluded from the scope of the order are wooden, 
plastic, and other garment hangers that are not made of steel wire. 
Also excluded from the scope of the order are chrome-plated steel wire 
garment hangers with a diameter of 3.4 mm or greater. The products 
subject to the order are currently classified under HTSUS subheadings

    Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and 
customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is 
dispositive.

Final Results of Review

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined the 
following: (1) Shanghai Wells sold merchandise at prices below normal 
value; and (2) Yingqing is not eligible for a separate rate and, 
therefore, is a part of the PRC-wide entity.\2\ We have not received 
information contradicting our preliminary finding; thus, the Department 
finds there is no reason to modify its analysis. Accordingly, no 
decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. For

PRC-Wide Entity

    The Department's policy regarding the conditional review of the 
PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.\4\ Under this 
policy, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a party 
specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of 
the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity 
in this review, the entity is not under review and the entity's rate is 
not subject to change (i.e., 187.25 percent).\5\

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Act. In the Preliminary Results, the Department 
calculated constructed export prices and export prices in accordance 
with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a nonmarket economy 
(NME) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value is 
calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. We have not 
received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results 
that provides a basis for reconsidering this determination. For a full 
description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the

    \6\ As previously stated, we continue to find Shanghai Wells 
Hanger Co., Ltd. and Hong Kong Wells Ltd. (collectively Shanghai 
Wells) to be a single entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of 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 in accordance with 
the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of 
the final results of this review.

[[Page 54325]]

    The Department applied the assessment rate calculation method 
adopted in Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., on the basis of 
monthly average-to-average comparisons using only the transactions 
associated with that importer with offsets being provided for non-
dumped comparisons.\7\ Pursuant to the Department's NME practice, for 
sales that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted by 
companies individually examined during this review, the Department 
instructs CBP to liquidate entries associated with those sales at the 
rate for the PRC-wide entity.\8\

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 by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the company listed 
above, Shanghai Wells, 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); (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed 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 recently completed 
segment of this proceeding in which they were reviewed; (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 equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margin for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 187.25 
percent); and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise 
which have not received their own separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter(s) that supplied that 
non-PRC exporter. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, 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.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the 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/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 administrative review is 
issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5) and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
