The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we did not make any revisions to the margin calculations for Fushun Jinly. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that Fangda Group 4 and Xuzhou Jianglong Carbon Products Co., Ltd. (Xuzhou Jianglong) had no shipments of the subject merchandise during the POR.5 We received no information to contradict this determination. Therefore, we continue to determine that Fangda Group and Xuzhou Jianglong had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, and will issue appropriate liquidation instructions that are consistent with our ‘‘automatic assessment’’ clarification, for these final results.6 Final Results of the Review Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for Fushun Jinly for the POR from February 1, 2016, through January 31, 2017: Exporter Fushun Jinly Petrochemical Carbon Co., Ltd 7 .............. Fangda Group consists of Beijing Fangda Carbon Tech Co., Ltd., Chengdu Rongguang Carbon Co., Ltd., Fangda Carbon New Material Co., Ltd., Fushun Carbon Co., Ltd., and Hefei Carbon Co., Ltd. In a prior administrative review Commerce determined, pursuant to sections 771(33)(F) and (G) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), that these companies were affiliated. Additionally, Commerce determined, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.401(f) that it was appropriate to treat these companies as a single entity. See Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Postponement of Final Determination, and Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances, in Part, 73 FR 49408, 49411–12 (August 21, 2008), unchanged in Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances: Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the People’s Republic of China, 74 FR 2049 (January 14, 2009). Because there is no evidence on the record of this review that would require us to reevaluate this determination, we are continuing to treat these companies as part of the Fangda Group. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 0.00 Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, and Commerce no longer considers the China-wide entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews,8 we did not conduct a review of the Chinawide entity. Thus, the weighted-average dumping margin for the China-wide entity (i.e., 159.64 percent) 9 is not subject to change as a result of this review. Assessment Rates Commerce determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b).

For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Fushun Jinly, we will instruct the CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties because Fushun Jinly’s weightedaverage dumping margin in these final results is zero.10 Consistent with Commerce’s assessment practice in non-market economy cases, for sales that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted by companies individually examined during this review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate entries associated with those sales at the rate for the China-wide entity. Furthermore, where we found that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s cash deposit rate) will be liquidated at the rate for the Chinawide entity.11 Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise from China 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) No cash deposit will be required for subject merchandise exported by Fushun Jinly; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese 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 Chinese 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 China-wide entity (i.e., 159.64 percent); and (4) for all non-Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese exporter(s) that supplied that nonChinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Disclosure We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days of the date 10 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). a full discussion of this practice, see Assessment Practice Refinement, 76 FR at 65694. 11 For VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:31 Jul 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Notification to Importers Regarding the 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 POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding 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 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.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we did not make 
any revisions to the margin calculations for Fushun Jinly.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that Fangda 
Group \4\ and Xuzhou Jianglong Carbon Products Co., Ltd. (Xuzhou 
Jianglong) had no shipments of the subject merchandise during the 
POR.\5\ We received no information to contradict this determination. 
Therefore, we continue to determine that Fangda Group and Xuzhou 
Jianglong had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, and 
will issue appropriate liquidation instructions that are consistent 
with our ``automatic assessment'' clarification, for these final 
results.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ The Fangda Group consists of Beijing Fangda Carbon Tech Co., 
Ltd., Chengdu Rongguang Carbon Co., Ltd., Fangda Carbon New Material 
Co., Ltd., Fushun Carbon Co., Ltd., and Hefei Carbon Co., Ltd. In a 
prior administrative review Commerce determined, pursuant to 
sections 771(33)(F) and (G) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), that these companies were affiliated. Additionally, 
Commerce determined, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.401(f) that it was 
appropriate to treat these companies as a single entity. See Small 
Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the People's Republic of China:

Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Affirmative Determination of 
Critical Circumstances: Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from the 
People's Republic of China, 74 FR 2049 (January 14, 2009). Because 
there is no evidence on the record of this review that would require 
us to reevaluate this determination, we are continuing to treat 
these companies as part of the Fangda Group.

Final Results of the Review

    Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping 
margin exists for Fushun Jinly for the POR from February 1, 2016, 
through January 31, 2017:

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

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fushun Jinly Petrochemical Carbon Co., Ltd \7\.........            0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, and 
Commerce no longer considers the China-wide entity as an exporter 
conditionally subject to administrative reviews,\8\ we did not conduct 
a review of the China-wide entity. Thus, the weighted-average dumping 
margin for the China-wide entity (i.e., 159.64 percent) \9\ is not 
subject to change as a result of this review.

Assessment Rates

    Commerce determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.212(b). We intend to issue

[[Page 32835]]

assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of 
these final results of review. For entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR produced by Fushun Jinly, we will instruct the CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties 
because Fushun Jinly's weighted-average dumping margin in these final 
results is zero.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice in non-market 
economy cases, for sales that were not reported in the U.S. sales data 
submitted by companies individually examined during this review, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate entries associated with those sales at 
the rate for the China-wide entity. Furthermore, where we found that an 
exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any 
suspended entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., 
at that exporter's cash deposit rate) will be liquidated at the rate 
for the China-wide entity.\11\

Practice Refinement, 76 FR at 65694.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from China 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) No cash deposit will 
be required for subject merchandise exported by Fushun Jinly; (2) for 
previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese 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 Chinese 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 
China-wide entity (i.e., 159.64 percent); and (4) for all non-Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the 
Chinese exporter(s) that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days 
of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Notification to Importers Regarding the 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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent assessment of 
double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding 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 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of 
the Act.

     Dated: July 10, 2018.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
