Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision

Final Determination of No Shipments

    Commerce preliminarily found that Fedmet, Fengchi Imp. and Exp. 
Co., Ltd. of Haicheng City, Fengchi Mining Co., Ltd. of Haicheng City, 
and Fengchi Refractories Co., of Haicheng City (collectively, Fengchi), 
and RHI Refractories Liaoning Co., Ltd. (RHI) had no reviewable 
entries, shipments, or sales of the subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POR.\6\ After the Preliminary Results, with respect 
to Fengchi and RHI, no party commented on our preliminary no shipments 
finding, nor has any party submitted record evidence which would call 
this finding into question. Therefore, for the final results, we 
continue to find that Fengchi and RHI had no shipments of subject 
merchandise during the POR. With respect to Fedmet, we placed entry 
packages obtained from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on the 
record of this review, and interested parties submitted comments on 
this information.\7\ As discussed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, we continue to find that Fedmet also did not have any 
reviewable entries, shipments, or sales of subject merchandise to the 
United States during the POR.\8\ Consistent with our practice, we will 
issue appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) based on our final results.

Shipments.''

14, 2018 submission; Fedmet's December 14, 2018 submission.
    \8\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative 
review. Pursuant to Commerce's assessment practice, because we have 
determined that Fedmet, Fengchi, and RHI had no reviewable entries, 
shipments, or sales of the subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR, any suspended entries that entered under their case 
numbers (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the 
China-wide entity rate.\9\ We will instruct CBP to liquidate entries 
from the China-wide entity at the current rate for the China-wide 
entity (i.e., 236.00 percent). Commerce intends to issue appropriate 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of 
the final results of this administrative review.

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, the cash deposit rate will be the 
rate previously established for the China-wide entity (i.e., 236.00 
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.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as the only 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). Timely 
written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to
