PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Results of New Shipper Review In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Muyun was eligible for a separate rate, through evidence of absence of both de jure and de facto government control over export activities, and calculated a 0.00 percent weighted-average dumping margin.13 However, Muyun subsequently notified Commerce that it would not be participating in Commerce’s scheduled verification, rendering Muyun’s responses unreliable and unverifiable.14 Accordingly, for these final results of review, we have determined that Muyun has failed to demonstrate its qualification for a separate rate and, thus, is part of the China-wide entity. For further discussion of the issues addressed in this proceeding, see the IDM.15 The IDM is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// access.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the IDM can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/ index.html. The signed and the electronic versions of the IDM are identical in content. A list of the topics addressed in the IDM is contained in the Appendix to this notice. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, 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 publication date of the final results of this review. We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate POR entries of subject merchandise exported by Muyun at the China-wide entity rate, which is 25.62 percent.

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.

Timely notification of return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.

Multilayered Wood Flooring From the People's Republic of China; 
Final Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review; 2014-2015

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) has conducted a new 
shipper review (NSR) of the antidumping duty order on multilayered wood 
flooring (MLWF) from the People's Republic of China (China). We have 
determined that Huzhou Muyun Wood Co., Ltd., (Muyun) has failed to 
demonstrate its qualification for a separate rate and is, therefore, 
subject to the China-wide entity rate, which is not under review in 
this period. The period of review (POR) is December 1, 2014, through 
May 31, 2015.

DATES: Applicable May 14, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 29, 2015, Commerce initiated this NSR for Muyun in order to 
determine whether imports into the United States of multilayered wood 
flooring from China are being sold below normal value.\1\ On October 
26, 2016, Commerce published the final rescission of Muyun's NSR, due 
to the determination that Muyun's sale was non-bona fide.\2\ On 
December 11, 2017, the Court of International Trade (CIT) remanded 
Commerce's determination, holding that the conclusion that Muyun's sale 
was non-bona fide was not supported by substantial evidence.\3\ On 
March 6, 2018, Commerce released its final results of redetermination 
pursuant to court order, continuing to find that

[[Page 21330]]

Muyun's sale was non-bona fide.\4\ On July 16, 2018, the CIT issued a 
final judgement that Commerce's ultimate conclusion was not supported 
by substantial evidence, that the rescission of the NSR could not be 
upheld, and instructed Commerce to proceed with Muyun's NSR.\5\ On 
August 16, 2018 Commerce published its notification to the public that 
the final judgement in this case is not in harmony with the final 
rescission.\6\

Analysis of Comments Received

    No parties submitted comments.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    We find that Muyun has failed to demonstrate its qualification for 
a separate rate.

Results of New Shipper Review

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Muyun was 
eligible for a separate rate, through evidence of absence of both de 
jure and de facto government control over export activities, and 
calculated a 0.00 percent weighted-average dumping margin.\13\ However, 
Muyun subsequently notified Commerce that it would not be participating 
in Commerce's scheduled verification, rendering Muyun's responses 
unreliable and unverifiable.\14\ Accordingly, for these final results 
of review, we have determined that Muyun has failed to demonstrate its 
qualification for a separate rate and, thus, is part of the China-wide 
entity.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce has determined, 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 publication date of the final results of this review. We intend to 
instruct CBP to liquidate POR entries of subject merchandise exported 
by Muyun at the China-wide entity rate, which is 25.62 percent.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirement will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this new shipper review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from China

[[Page 21331]]

entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: As 
Muyun has not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be that for the China-wide entity, or 25.62 percent. 
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.

Notification Regarding APO

    This notice also serves as a reminder to the parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of business proprietary information (BPI) 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern BPI in this segment of the proceeding. Timely 
notification of 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 sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214.

    Dated: May 7, 2019.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
