Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined the Wah Yuen entity did not have any shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.5 As we have not received any information to contradict our preliminary finding, we determine that the Wah Yuen entity did not have any shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. We will issue appropriate instructions that are consistent with our ‘‘automatic assessment’’ clarification, for these final results.6 Methodology sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Tianjin Tonghe and Ningbo Homey were ineligible for a separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity, subject to the China-wide entity rate of 114.90 percent.7 As we have not received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this determination, we continue to find that Tianjin Tonghe and Ningbo Homey are ineligible for a separate rate. dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:59 Jan 22, 2018 Jkt 244001 As noted in the Preliminary Results, Commerce’s policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide entity applies to this administrative review.8 Under this policy, the Chinawide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, and we did not self-initiate a review, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate is not subject to change. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see Issues and Decision Memorandum. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. With regard to Tianjin Tonghe and Ningbo Homey, we will instruct CBP to apply an assessment rate of 114.19 percent of the entered value of subject merchandise during the POR which was exported by those companies. Additionally, consistent with its assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, for the Wah Yuen entity which Commerce determined had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries made under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.9 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of these final results of administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For companies which have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established in these final results (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) 8 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 (November 4, 2013). 9 For a full discussion of this practice see Assessment Notice. PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3113 for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters 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; (3) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the Chinawide entity; and (4) for all non-Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a 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 POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. 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 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 determination 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). Dated: January 16, 2018.

The petitioner is a domestic producer of plastic decorative ribbon.2 On January 2, 2018, Commerce requested supplemental information pertaining to certain areas of the Petition.3 The petitioner filed responses to these requests, including revised scope language, on January 5, 2018.4 In accordance with section 702(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the petitioner alleges that the Government of China (GOC) is providing countervailable subsidies, within the meaning of sections 701 and 771(5) of the Act, to imports of plastic decorative ribbon from China and that such imports are materially injuring, or threatening material injury to, the domestic industry producing plastic decorative ribbon in the United States. Also, consistent with section 702(b)(1) of the Act, the Petition is accompanied by information reasonably available to the petitioner supporting its allegations. Commerce finds that the petitioner filed this Petition on behalf of the domestic industry because the petitioner is an interested party as defined in section 771(9)(C) of the Act.

Certain Cased Pencils From the People's Republic of China: Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2015-2016

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

SUMMARY: On September 15, 2017, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) 
published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cased 
pencils (pencils) from the People's Republic of China (China) for the 
period of review (POR) December 1, 2015, through November 30, 2016. We 
continue to find that Tianjin Tonghe Stationery Industrial Co. Ltd. 
(Tianjin Tonghe) and Ningbo Homey Union Co., Ltd. (Ningbo Homey) are 
not eligible for separate rates and, therefore, remain part of the 
China-wide entity. We also determine that the entity composed of Wah 
Yuen Stationery Co. Ltd. and Shandong Wah Yuen Stationery Co. Ltd. 
(collectively, the Wah Yuen entity) had no shipments during the POR.

DATES: Applicable January 23, 2018.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined the Wah Yuen entity 
did not have any shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.\5\ As 
we have not received any information to contradict our preliminary 
finding, we determine that the Wah Yuen entity did not have any 
shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. We will issue 
appropriate instructions that are consistent with our ``automatic 
assessment'' clarification, for these final results.\6\

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (Assessment 
Notice); see also ``Assessment Rates'' section below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). In the 
Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Tianjin Tonghe and Ningbo 
Homey were ineligible for a separate rate and are part of the China-
wide entity, subject to the China-wide entity rate of 114.90 
percent.\7\ As we have not received any information since the issuance 
of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this 
determination, we continue to find that Tianjin Tonghe and Ningbo Homey 
are ineligible for a separate rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Preliminary Results, 82 FR at 43330-43331, and 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 5-6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, Commerce's policy regarding 
conditional review of the China-wide entity applies to this 
administrative review.\8\ Under this policy, the China-wide entity will 
not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce 
self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a 
review of the China-wide entity, and we did not self-initiate a review, 
the entity is not under review and the entity's rate is not subject to 
change.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 (November 4, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. 
Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after 
the date of publication of these final results of review. With regard 
to Tianjin Tonghe and Ningbo Homey, we will instruct CBP to apply an 
assessment rate of 114.19 percent of the entered value of subject 
merchandise during the POR which was exported by those companies.
    Additionally, consistent with its assessment practice in non-market 
economy (NME) cases, for the Wah Yuen entity which Commerce determined 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries made 
under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will 
be liquidated at the China-wide rate.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ For a full discussion of this practice see Assessment 
Notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results of administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For companies which 
have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established in 
these final results (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then 
zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters 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; (3) for all Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the 
China-wide entity; and (4) for all non-Chinese exporters of subject 
merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied 
that non-Chinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a 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 POR. Failure to comply with this
