Background

    On August 3, 2017, the Department published the preliminary results 
for this administrative review.\1\ We invited interested parties to 
comment on the Preliminary Results. We received no comments or requests 
for a hearing from any party. The Department conducted this 
administrative review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Reviews; 2015-2016, 82 FR 36122 (August 3, 2017) (Preliminary 
Results).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the antidumping duty order are all gauges 
of raw, pretreated, or primed PET film, whether extruded or coextruded. 
Excluded are metalized films and other finished films that have had at 
least one of their surfaces modified by the application of a 
performance-enhancing resinous or inorganic layer of more than 0.00001 
inches thick. Imports of polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and 
strip are currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTSUS) under item number 3920.62.00.90. HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The 
written description of the scope of the antidumping duty order is 
dispositive.

Final Results of Review

    As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the 
Preliminary Results. As there are no changes from, or comments upon, 
the Preliminary Results, the Department finds that there is no reason 
to modify its analysis and calculations. Thus, we continue to find that 
sales of subject merchandise by Nan Ya were made at less than normal 
value during the POR. Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies 
this Federal Register notice. For further details of the issues 
addressed in this proceeding, see the Preliminary Results and the 
accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\2\ The final weighted-
average dumping margin for the period July 1, 2015, through June 30, 
2016, for Nan Ya is as follows:

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries in this review, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 
days after publication of these final results of review. For Nan Ya, we 
will base the assessment rate for the corresponding entries on the 
margin listed above.
    For entries of subject merchandise produced by Nan Ya for which it 
did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others 
rate established in the less-than fair-value (LTFV) investigation, 2.40 
percent,\3\ if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction.\4\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon

provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit 
rate for Nan Ya will be 1.34%, the rate established in the final 
results of this review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated 
companies not covered in this review, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this or any 
previous review or in the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) 
investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash-deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer 
is a firm covered in this or any previous review or the investigation, 
the cash-deposit rate will continue to be the all-others rate of 2.40 
percent, which is the all-others rate established by the Department in 
the LTFV investigation.\5\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    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 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.
    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).
