Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs filed by parties in this review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is incorporated herein by reference. A list of the issues which parties raised, and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, follows in the Appendix to this notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum 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 https:// access.trade.gov and is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. 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 analysis of the comments received, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, Commerce made no changes to the Preliminary Results. China-Wide Entity For the purposes of the final results of this administrative review, we continue to find that the following entities are part of the China-wide entity because they failed to submit both a response to Commerce’s quantity and value questionnaire and information to establish eligibility for a separate rate: (1) Activa International Inc.; (2) Belton (Asia) Development Ltd.; (3) Belton (Asia) Development Limited; (4) Changzhou Changzhen Evaporator Co., Ltd.; (5) Changzhou Changzheng Evaporator Co., Ltd.; (6) Changzhou Tenglong Auto Parts Co., Ltd.; (7) Changzhou Tenglong Auto Accessories Manufacturing Co.

Because no party requested, and Commerce did not self-initiate, a review of the China-wide entity in the instant review, the entity is not under review; therefore, the entity’s current rate, i.e., 86.01 percent,12 is not subject to change. Adjustments for Countervailable Subsidies Because no company established eligibility for an adjustment under section 777A(f) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) for countervailable domestic subsidies, for these final results, Commerce did not make an adjustment pursuant to section 777A(f) of the Act for countervailable domestic subsidies for separate-rate recipients. Furthermore, because the China-wide entity is not under review, we made no adjustment for countervailable export subsidies for the China-wide entity pursuant to section 772(c)(1)(C) of the Act. Assessment Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) 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 10 See Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 15587.

Consistent with Commerce’s assessment practice in non-market economy cases, if Commerce determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under the exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.13 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash 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 for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most-recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the exporter was reviewed; (2) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established for the China-wide entity, which is 86.01 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 with the subject merchandise. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Notification to Interested Parties We are issuing and publishing notice of these final results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and sections 351.213(h) and 351.221(b)(5) of Commerce’s regulations.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs filed by parties 
in this review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, 
which is incorporated herein by reference. A list of the issues which 
parties raised, and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, follows in the Appendix to this notice. The Issues and 
Decision Memorandum 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 https://access.trade.gov and is available to all 
parties in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. 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 analysis of the comments received, and for the reasons 
explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, Commerce made no 
changes to the Preliminary Results.

China-Wide Entity

    For the purposes of the final results of this administrative 
review, we continue to find that the following entities are part of the 
China-wide entity because they failed to submit both a response to 
Commerce's quantity and value questionnaire and information to 
establish eligibility for a separate rate: (1) Activa International 
Inc.; (2) Belton (Asia) Development Ltd.; (3) Belton (Asia) Development 
Limited; (4) Changzhou Changzhen Evaporator Co., Ltd.; (5) Changzhou 
Changzheng Evaporator Co., Ltd.; (6) Changzhou Tenglong Auto Parts Co., 
Ltd.; (7) Changzhou Tenglong Auto Accessories Manufacturing Co. Ltd; 
(8) Changzhou Tenglong Auto Parts Co Ltd; (9) China Square; (10) China 
Square Industrial Co.; (11) China Square Industrial Ltd; (12) Cosco; 
(13) Cosco (JM) Aluminum Development Co. Ltd; (14) Dynamic Technologies 
China; (15) ETLA Technology (Wuxi) Co. Ltd; (16) Foshan Shanshui Fenglu 
Aluminum Co., Ltd.; (17) Global Hi- Tek Precision Co. Ltd; (18) 
Houztek; (19) Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd.; (20) Kromet 
International Inc.; (21) Kromet Intl Inc; (22) Kromet International; 
(23) Kunshan Giant Light Metal Technology Co., Ltd.; (24) Precision 
Metal Works Ltd.; (25) Sihui Shi Guo Yao Aluminum Co., Ltd.; and (26) 
Summit Heat Sinks Metal Co, Ltd.\10\

    \10\ See Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 15587.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide 
entity applies to this administrative review.\11\ 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, and Commerce did not self-initiate, 
a review of the China-wide entity in the instant review, the entity is 
not under review; therefore, the entity's current rate, i.e., 86.01 
percent,\12\ is not subject to change.

Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity

2013).

2015-2016, 82 FR 52265, 52267 (November 13, 2017).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adjustments for Countervailable Subsidies

    Because no company established eligibility for an adjustment under 
section 777A(f) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) for 
countervailable domestic subsidies, for these final results, Commerce 
did not make an adjustment pursuant to section 777A(f) of the Act for 
countervailable domestic subsidies for separate-rate recipients. 
Furthermore, because the China-wide entity is not under review, we made 
no adjustment for countervailable export subsidies for the China-wide 
entity pursuant to section 772(c)(1)(C) of the Act.

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) 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

[[Page 56166]]

after the date of publication of the final results of review in the 
Federal Register. Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice in 
non-market economy cases, if Commerce determines that an exporter under 
review had no shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries 
that entered under the exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.\13\

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash 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 for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously 
investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed 
above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-
specific rate published for the most-recently completed segment of this 
proceeding in which the exporter was reviewed; (2) for all Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that 
established for the China-wide entity, which is 86.01 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 with the subject merchandise. These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 and/or countervailing 
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 and/or 
countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties Regarding Administrative Protective 
Order

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition 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 the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing notice of these final results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 
sections 351.213(h) and 351.221(b)(5) of Commerce's regulations.

    Dated: October 11, 2019.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
