SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract Estimated Number of Respondents: 414. Estimated Time per Response: 16 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 110. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: 0. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: EAR Part 748.11. Sections 4812(b)(7) and 4814(b)(1)(B) of the Export Control Reform Act (ECRA), authorizes the President and the Secretary of Commerce to issue regulations to implement the ECRA including those provisions authorizing the control of exports of U.S. goods and technology to all foreign destinations, as necessary for the purpose of national security, foreign policy and short supply, and the provision prohibiting U.S. persons from participating in certain foreign boycotts. Export control authority has been assigned directly to the Secretary of Commerce by the ECRA and delegated by the President to the Secretary of Commerce. This authority is administered by the Bureau of Industry and Security through the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The ECRA is not permanent legislation, and when it has lapsed due to the failure to enact a timely extension, Presidential executive orders under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) have directed and authorized the continuation in force of the EAR. The collection is necessary under Part 748.11 of the EAR. This section states that the Form BIS–711, Statement by Ultimate Consignee and Purchaser, or a statement on company letterhead (in accordance with 748.11(b)(1), unless one or more of the exemptions set forth in Section 748.11(a)) exists. The BIS– 711 or letter provides information on the foreign importer receiving the U.S. technology and how the technology will be utilized. The BIS–711 or letter provides assurances from the importer that the technology will not be misused, transferred or re-exported in violation of the EAR. The form is also required for certain reexport authorizations specified in Part 748.12(b) of the EAR. IV. Request for Comments II. Method of Collection International Trade Administration Submitted electronically or on paper. We are soliciting public comments to permit the Department/Bureau to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the time and cost burden for this proposed collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Evaluate ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Minimize the reporting burden on those who are to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. We will include or summarize each comment in our request to OMB to approve this ICR.

DATES: Background On November 23, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary Results for this administrative review.1 In the Preliminary Results, we invited interested parties to comment within 30 days.2 No interested party submitted comments or requested a hearing in this administrative review. The current deadline for these final results is March 23, 2021. Commerce conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The products covered by the AD order are all gauges of raw, pretreated, or primed PET film, whether extruded or coextruded. Excluded are metalized films and other finished films that have had at least one of their surfaces modified by the application of a performance-enhancing resinous or inorganic layer of more than 0.00001 inches thick.

Final Results of Review As noted above, Commerce received no comments concerning the Preliminary Results. As there are no changes from, or comments upon, the Preliminary Results, Commerce finds that there is no reason to modify its analysis and calculations. Accordingly, we adopt the analysis and explanation in our Preliminary Results for the purposes of these final results and we have not prepared an Issues and Decision Memorandum to accompany this Federal Register notice. The final weighted-average dumping margin for the period July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019, for Jindal is 0.00 percent. Assessment Rates Commerce has determined, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in this review, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions directly to CBP no earlier than 35 days after publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request for statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication). Because we calculated a zero margin in the final results of this review for Jindal, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to dumping duties.3 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 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) The cash deposit rate for Jindal will be zero, the rate established in the final results of this review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not covered in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period in which that company participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this or any previous review or in the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, 3 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

Disclosure Normally, Commerce discloses to interested parties the calculations performed in connection with the final results within five days of the date of publication of the notice of final results in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, there are no calculations to disclose here because Commerce made no changes to the analysis or calculations in the Preliminary Results.5 Reimbursement of Duties 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 and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Final Results of Review

    As noted above, Commerce received no comments concerning the 
Preliminary Results. As there are no changes from, or comments upon, 
the Preliminary Results, Commerce finds that there is no reason to

analysis and explanation in our Preliminary Results for the purposes of 
these final results and we have not prepared an Issues and Decision 
Memorandum to accompany this Federal Register notice. The final 
weighted-average dumping margin for the period July 1, 2018, through

International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to

publication). Because we calculated a zero margin in the final results 
of this review for Jindal, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
dumping duties.\3\
