Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, Commerce made two changes to the Preliminary Results. First, instead of converting U.S. price to a metric ton basis, we converted normal value to a kilogram basis, to match the U.S. price unit of measure, before calculating the weighted-average dumping margin. Second, there were multiple variants of the name for the same importer. Thus, we adjusted the name of the importers to make the names consistent. For a more detailed discussion of these changes, see the Final Analysis Memorandum.7 Separate Rate In the Preliminary Results, we found that information placed on the record by Qingshuiyuan demonstrated that this entity is entitled to separate rate status, which we preliminarily granted.8 We received no information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering the determination with respect to the separate rate status of this entity. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to find that Qingshuiyuan is eligible for a separate rate.

Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate (i.e., 167.58 percent) is not subject to change.10 Assessment Rates Commerce shall determine, 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). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated importer-specific (or customer-specific) assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. For these final results, we divided the total dumping margins (calculated as the difference between normal value and export price or constructed export price) for Qingshuiyuan’s importers or customers by either the total number of kilograms the exporter sold to that importer or customer or by the total entered value. We intend to direct CBP to assess the resulting per-kilogram dollar amount or the ad valorem assessment rate against each kilogram of merchandise in each of that importer’s/customer’s entries during the review period. For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted by Qingshuiyuan during this review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the rate for the Chinawide entity.11 Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register. 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, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Qingshuiyuan, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this review (except, if the ad Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013). 10 See 1-Hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-Diphosphonic Acid from the People’s Republic of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, and Antidumping Duty Order, 82 FR 22807 (May 18, 2017). 11 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum, Commerce made two changes to the Preliminary 
Results. First, instead of converting U.S. price to a metric ton basis, 
we converted normal value to a kilogram basis, to match the U.S. price 
unit of measure, before calculating the weighted-average dumping 
margin. Second, there were multiple variants of the name for the same 
importer. Thus, we adjusted the name of the importers to make the names 
consistent. For a more detailed discussion of these changes, see the 
Final Analysis Memorandum.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

dated concurrently with this notice (Final Analysis Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rate

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that information placed on the 
record by Qingshuiyuan demonstrated that this entity is entitled to 
separate rate status, which we preliminarily granted.\8\ We received no 
information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides 
a basis for reconsidering the determination with respect to the 
separate rate status of this entity. Therefore, for the final results, 
we continue to find that Qingshuiyuan is eligible for a separate rate.

Final Results of the Review

    Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping 
margin exists for the POR from November 4, 2016 through April 30, 2018:

China-Wide Entity

    Commerce's policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide 
entity applies to this administrative review.\9\ 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 a review of the China-wide entity in this review, 
the entity is not under review and the entity's rate (i.e., 167.58 
percent) is not subject to change.\10\

calculated importer-specific (or customer-specific) assessment rates 
for merchandise subject to this review. For these final results, we 
divided the total dumping margins (calculated as the difference between 
normal value and export price or constructed export price) for 
Qingshuiyuan's importers or customers by either the total number of 
kilograms the exporter sold to that importer or customer or by the 
total entered value. We intend to direct CBP to assess the resulting 
per-kilogram dollar amount or the ad valorem assessment rate against 
each kilogram of merchandise in each of that importer's/customer's 
entries during the review period.
    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales data submitted 
by Qingshuiyuan during this review, Commerce will instruct CBP to 
liquidate such entries at the rate for the China-wide entity.\11\

    Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of the final results of this review in 
the Federal Register.

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, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Qingshuiyuan, the 
cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this review (except, if the ad

[[Page 67927]]

valorem rate is de minimis, then the cash deposit rate will be zero); 
(2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese 
exporters not listed above that have received a separate rate in a 
prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue 
to be the existing exporter-specific cash deposit rate published for 
the completed segment of the most recent period; (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 the rate for 
the China-wide entity (i.e., 167.58 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 that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These 
cash 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 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.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a final 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5) and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: December 6, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
