The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only; the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.2 Final Determination of No Shipments Commerce preliminarily found that Comfort Coil Technology Sdn. Bhd. (Comfort Coil), did not have any shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.3 Commerce also found that Foshan Nanhai Jolyspring (Foshan Nanhai) did not demonstrate it is entitled to a separate rate and, thus, we consider Foshan Nanhai to be part of the China wide-wide entity.4 After the Preliminary Results, we received no comments or additional information with respect to these two companies. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to find that Comfort Coil did not have any shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, and that Foshan Nanhai continues to be a part of the China-wide entity. Consistent with our practice, we will issue appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) based on our final results. Analysis of Comments Received As noted above, we received no comments on the Preliminary Results. Changes Since the Preliminary Results As no parties submitted comments on the Preliminary Results, Commerce has not modified its analysis from that presented in the Preliminary Results, and no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. Assessment Rates jbell on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative review. Pursuant to Commerce’s assessment practice, because we have determined that Comfort Coil had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the China-wide entity rate.5 We will instruct CBP to liquidate entries from the PRC-wide entity (including Foshan Nanhai) at the current rate for the PRCwide entity (i.e., 234.51 percent). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 2 See PDM at ‘‘Scope of the Order.’’ at 3. 4 Id at 4–5. 5 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 3 Id VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Apr 17, 2019 Jkt 247001 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously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 published for the most recently completed period; (2) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, i.e., Foshan Nanhai, the cash deposit rate will be the China-wide rate of 234.51 percent; and (3) 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. Notification to Importers 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 Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

(PVA) from the People's Republic of China (China). For these final

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 1, 2003, Commerce published in the Federal Register an 
antidumping duty order on PVA from China.\1\ On December 7, 2018, SVW, 
a foreign producer and exporter of PVA from China, and Wego Chemical 
and Mineral Corp. (Wego), an importer of PVA from China (collectively, 
SVW and Wego) requested that, pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.216(b), 
Commerce conduct an expedited changed circumstances review of the Order 
to confirm that SVW is the successor-in-interest to Sichuan SVW and, 
accordingly, to assign SVW

[[Page 16247]]

the cash deposit rate of Sichuan SVW.\2\ In its submission, SVW and 
Wego explain that Sinopec Sichuan Vinylon Works (i.e., Sichuan SVW) has 
changed its name to Sinopec Chongqing SVW Chemical Co., Ltd. (i.e., 
SVW), and aver that no substantive changes other than this change of 
name have otherwise occurred.\3\

    \1\ See Antidumping Duty Order: Polyvinyl Alcohol from the 
People's Republic of China, 68 FR 56620 (October 1, 2003) (the 
Order).
    \2\ See SVW and Wego's letter, ``Polyvinyl Alcohol from China: 
Request for Changed Circumstances Review,'' dated December 12, 2018.
    \3\ Id. at 1-4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 4, 2019, we initiated this changed circumstances review 
and published the notice of preliminary results, determining that SVW 
is the successor-in-interest to Sichuan SVW.\4\ In the Initiation and 
Preliminary Results, we provided all interested parties with an 
opportunity to comment and request a public hearing regarding our 
preliminary finding.\5\ We received no comments or requests for a 
public hearing from interested parties within the time period set forth 
in the Initiation and Preliminary Results. The current deadline for 
issuance of these final results of antidumping duty change 
circumstances review is April 12, 2019.

Initiation and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed 
Circumstances Review, 84 FR 7337 (March 4, 2019) (Initiation and 
Preliminary Results).
    \5\ Id., 84 FR at 7339.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is PVA. This product consists 
of all PVA hydrolyzed in excess of 80 percent, whether or not mixed or 
diluted with commercial levels of defoamer or boric acid.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

duty order, see the ``Scope of the Order'' section of the Initiation 
and Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 7337-7338.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    For the reasons stated in the Initiation and Preliminary Results, 
and because we received no comments from interested parties to the 
contrary, Commerce continues to find that SVW is the successor-in-
interest to Sichuan SVW.\7\ As a result of this determination and 
consistent with established practice, we find that SVW should receive 
the cash deposit rate previously assigned to Sichuan SVW in the most 
recently-completed segment of the Order in which Sichuan SVW was under 
review.\8\ As the rate calculated for Sichuan SVW in that review was de 
minimis (0.00 percent), Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection that no cash deposit shall be required for subject 
merchandise exported by SVW and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the 
Federal Register. This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect 
until further notice.
