SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 16, 2019, Commerce published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain magnesia carbon bricks from the People’s Republic of China (China) for the period September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018.1 We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. No party submitted comments. Accordingly, the final results remain unchanged from the Preliminary Results. Scope of the Order The scope of the Order covers certain magnesia carbon bricks.2 For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Final Determination of No Shipments and Status of the China-Wide Entity Commerce preliminarily found that: (1) Fedmet Resources Corporation (Fedmet); and (2) Fengchi Imp. and Exp. Co., Ltd., 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) had no reviewable entries, shipments, or sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. As noted in Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we received no shipment statements from Fedmet and Fengchi, and these statements were consistent with the information we received from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).3 1 See Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People’s Republic of China; Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017–2018, 84 FR 55287 (October 16, 2019) (Preliminary Results); and Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People’s Republic of China; 2017–2018,’’ dated October 9, 2019 (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 2 See Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from Mexico and the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Orders, 75 FR 57257 (September 20, 2010) (Order). 3 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 2.

Therefore, for these final results, we continue to find that Fedmet and Fengchi did not have any reviewable entries, shipments, or sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. With the exceptions of Fedmet and Fengchi, we find all other companies for which a review was requested to be part of the China-wide entity because they failed to file no-shipment statements, separate rate applications, or separate rate certifications. The following companies, accordingly, are part of the China-wide entity: Liaoning Zhongmei High Temperature Material Co., Ltd., Liaoning Zhongmei Holding Co., Ltd., RHI Refractories Liaoning Co., Ltd., Shenglong Refractories Co., Ltd., Yingkou Heping Samwha Minerals, Co., Ltd., and Yingkou Heping Sanhua Materials Co., Ltd.4 Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, and Commerce no longer considers the China-wide entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews, we did not conduct a review of the China-wide entity. The rate previously established for the China-wide entity is 236.00 percent and is not subject to change as a result of this review.5 Assessment Rates We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative review. Based on record evidence, we have determined that Fedmet and Fengchi had no shipments of subject merchandise and, therefore, pursuant to Commerce’s assessment practice, any suspended entries that entered under their case numbers will be liquidated at the China-wide entity rate.6 For all remaining companies subject to this review, which are part of the China-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to liquidate their entries 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 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘Eighth Administrative Review of Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People’s Republic of China: Customs Data of U.S. Imports,’’ dated July 12, 2019. 5 See Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012–2013, 80 FR 19961, 19962 (April 14, 2015). 6 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and 
Final Determination of No Shipments, In Part; 2017-2018

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) continues to determine 
that two companies under review had no shipments of subject merchandise 
during the period of review (POR), September 1, 2017 through August 31, 
2018. Additionally, Commerce continues to determine that the remaining 
companies subject to this review are part of the China-wide entity 
because they failed to file no shipment statements, separate rate 
applications, or separate rate certifications.

DATES: Applicable February 20, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nathan James, AD/CVD Operations,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On October 16, 2019, Commerce published the preliminary results of 
the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain 
magnesia carbon bricks from the People's Republic of China (China) for 
the period September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018.\1\ We invited 
parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. No party submitted 
comments. Accordingly, the final results remain unchanged from the 
Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People's 
Republic of China; Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review; 2017-2018, 84 FR 55287 (October 16, 2019) 
(Preliminary Results); and Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the 
Preliminary Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping 
Duty Order on Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People's 
Republic of China; 2017-2018,'' dated October 9, 2019 (Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The scope of the Order covers certain magnesia carbon bricks.\2\ 
For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from Mexico and the 
People's Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Orders, 75 FR 57257 
(September 20, 2010) (Order).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments and Status of the China-Wide Entity

    Commerce preliminarily found that: (1) Fedmet Resources Corporation 
(Fedmet); and (2) Fengchi Imp. and Exp. Co., Ltd., 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) had no reviewable entries, shipments, or sales of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR. As noted in 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we received no shipment statements 
from Fedmet and Fengchi, and these statements were consistent with the 
information we received from U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP).\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    No party commented on our preliminary no-shipment finding with 
respect to Fedmet and Fengchi, and no party submitted record evidence 
that calls this finding into question. Therefore, for these final 
results, we continue to find that Fedmet and Fengchi did not have any 
reviewable entries, shipments, or sales of subject merchandise to the 
United States during the POR.
    With the exceptions of Fedmet and Fengchi, we find all other 
companies for which a review was requested to be part of the China-wide 
entity because they failed to file no-shipment statements, separate 
rate applications, or separate rate certifications. The following 
companies, accordingly, are part of the China-wide entity: Liaoning 
Zhongmei High Temperature Material Co., Ltd., Liaoning Zhongmei Holding 
Co., Ltd., RHI Refractories Liaoning Co., Ltd., Shenglong Refractories 
Co., Ltd., Yingkou Heping Samwha Minerals, Co., Ltd., and Yingkou 
Heping Sanhua Materials Co., Ltd.\4\ Because no party requested a 
review of the China-wide entity, and Commerce no longer considers the 
China-wide entity as an exporter conditionally subject to 
administrative reviews, we did not conduct a review of the China-wide 
entity. The rate previously established for the China-wide entity is 
236.00 percent and is not subject to change as a result of this 
review.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Memorandum, ``Eighth Administrative Review of Certain 
Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People's Republic of China: Customs 
Data of U.S. Imports,'' dated July 12, 2019.
    \5\ See Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People's 
Republic of China: Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012-2013, 80 FR 19961, 
19962 (April 14, 2015).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative 
review. Based on record evidence, we have determined that Fedmet and 
Fengchi had no shipments of subject merchandise and, therefore, 
pursuant to Commerce's assessment practice, any suspended entries that 
entered under their case numbers will be liquidated at the China-wide 
entity rate.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For all remaining companies subject to this review, which are part 
of the China-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to liquidate their 
entries 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 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 
China-wide rate of 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 
comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation subject 
to sanction. These final results are issued and published in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
