Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive. Final Results of the Administrative Review We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the respondents for the POR, July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Exporter or producer COFCO Biochemical (Thailand) Co., Ltd ................................... Sunshine Biotech International Co., Ltd ................................... 0.00 0.00 Disclosure As noted above, Commerce received no comments on its Preliminary Results. As a result, we have not modified our analysis, and will not issue a decision memorandum to accompany this Federal Register notice. Further, because we have not changed our calculations since the Preliminary Results, there are no new calculations to disclose in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b) for these final results. We are adopting the Preliminary Results as the final results. lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), 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. We will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of the importer’s sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is either zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:49 Jul 13, 2021 Jkt 253001 Commerce’s ‘‘reseller policy’’ will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.4 Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of 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 a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication). Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements for estimated antidumping duties will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the companies listed above will be equal to each company’s weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative review (except if that rate is de minimis, in which situation the cash deposit rate will be zero); (2) for merchandise exported by a producer or exporter not covered in this review but covered in a prior completed segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation but the producer has been covered in a prior complete segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will be the company-specific rate established for the most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 11.25 percent,5 the all-others rate established in the less4 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 5 See Citric Acid and Certain Citrate Salts from Belgium, Colombia, and Thailand: Antidumping Duty Orders, 83 FR 35214, 35215 (July 25, 2018).

Notification to Importers Regarding the 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 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 Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a 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). 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.

We also continue to find that Tianjin Tonghe Stationery Co., Ltd. (Tianjin Tonghe) and Ningbo Homey Union Co., Ltd.

In addition, pencils with all of the following physical characteristics are excluded from the scope of the Order: Novelty jumbo pencils that are octagonal in shape, approximately ten inches long, one inch in diameter before sharpening, and three-and-one eighth inches in circumference, composed of turned wood encasing one-and-one half inches of sharpened lead on one end and a rubber eraser on the other end. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the Order is dispositive. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Wah Yuen 3 had no shipments of cased pencils during the POR, based on our analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) entry documentation and Wah Yuen’s questionnaire responses.4 We received no comments on our preliminary finding. As there is no information on the record that calls into question this preliminary finding, we continue to find in the final results of this review that Wah Yuen had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. 3 Commerce has determined that Wah Yuen Stationery Co. Ltd. and Shandong Wah Yuen Stationery Co. Ltd. are affiliated and should be treated as a single entity in the Preliminary Results and prior administrative reviews.

Accordingly, Tianjin Tonghe and Ningbo Homey are part of the China-wide entity. 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.5 The rate previously established for the China-wide entity is 114.90 percent and is not subject to change as a result of this review.6 Assessment Rates Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b).

Rescission of Administrative Review As discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, Duracell (China) Limited (DCL), the sole company under review reported that neither it, nor its U.S. affiliates, sold subject merchandise or further manufactured subject merchandise (i.e., batteries containing subject merchandise) to unaffiliated U.S. customers during the POR. Moreover, Commerce determined that DCL did not adequately demonstrate that it could trace the POR entry of subject merchandise, which was used to manufacture batteries in the United States, to particular batteries that were sold to unaffiliated U.S. customers after the end of the POR. Therefore, we have determined that there are no reviewable sales with which to calculate a dumping margin and we have rescinded this review.4 Assessment We intend to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate POR entries of subject merchandise from DCL at the rate applicable at the time of entry into the United States, 4 See E:\FR\FM\14JYN1.SGM 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). 14JYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 15, 2021, Commerce published the Preliminary Results in 
the Federal Register.\1\ We invited interested parties to comment on 
the Preliminary Results; however, no interested parties submitted 
comments. Accordingly, we made no changes to the Preliminary Results.

Memorandum.

Scope of the Order 2
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Certain Cased Pencils from the People's Republic of 
China: Continuation of Antidumping Duty Order, 82 FR 41608 
(September 1, 2017); and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Cased 
Pencils from the People's Republic of China, 59 FR 66909 (December 
28, 1994) (collectively, Order).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The merchandise covered by this Order is certain cased pencils of 
any shape or dimension (except as described below) which are writing 
and/or drawing instruments that feature cores of graphite or other 
materials, encased in wood and/or man-made materials, whether or not 
decorated and whether or not tipped (e.g., with erasers, etc.) in any 
fashion, and either sharpened or unsharpened. The pencils subject to 
the Order are currently classifiable under subheading 9609.10.00 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Specifically 
excluded from the scope of the Order are mechanical pencils, cosmetic 
pencils, pens, non-cased crayons (wax), pastels, charcoals, chalks, and 
pencils produced under U.S. patent number 6,217,242, from paper infused 
with scents by the means covered in the above-referenced patent, 
thereby having odors distinct from those that may emanate from pencils 
lacking the scent infusion. Also excluded from the scope of the Order 
are pencils with all of the following physical characteristics: (1) 
Length: 13.5 or more inches; (2) sheath diameter: Not less than one-
and-one quarter inches at any point (before sharpening); and (3) core 
length: Not more than 15 percent of the length of the pencil.
    In addition, pencils with all of the following physical 
characteristics are excluded from the scope of the Order: Novelty jumbo 
pencils that are octagonal in shape, approximately ten inches long, one 
inch in diameter before sharpening, and three-and-one eighth inches in 
circumference, composed of turned wood encasing one-and-one half inches 
of sharpened lead on one end and a rubber eraser on the other end.
    Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and 
customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the Order is 
dispositive.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Wah Yuen \3\ 
had no shipments of cased pencils during the POR, based on our analysis 
of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) entry documentation and Wah 
Yuen's questionnaire responses.\4\ We received no comments on our 
preliminary finding. As there is no information on the record that 
calls into question this preliminary finding, we continue to find in 
the final results of this review that Wah Yuen had no shipments of 
subject merchandise during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Commerce has determined that Wah Yuen Stationery Co. Ltd. 
and Shandong Wah Yuen Stationery Co. Ltd. are affiliated and should 
be treated as a single entity in the Preliminary Results and prior 
administrative reviews. See Preliminary Results and Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum at 1, n.1; see also Certain Cased Pencils from 
the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping 
Duty New Shipper Review; 2014-2015, 81 FR 37573 (June 10, 2016), and 
accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 9-10, unchanged in

Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review; 2014-2015, 81 FR 
74764 (October 27, 2016). We received no comments regarding our 
treatment of these companies as a single entity and therefore 
continue to collapse them for the final results of this 
administrative review.
    \4\ See Wah Yuen's Letter, ``Certain Cased Pencils from the 
People's Republic of China: Questionnaire Response,'' dated August 
21, 2020; see also Wah Yuen's Letter, ``Certain Cased Pencils from 
the People's Republic of China: Response to Supplemental 
Questionnaire,'' dated February 12, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

China-Wide Entity

    With the exception of Wah Yuen, 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. Accordingly, Tianjin 
Tonghe and Ningbo Homey are part of the China-wide entity. 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.\5\ The rate previously established for the China-
wide entity is 114.90 percent and is not subject to change as a result 
of this review.\6\

China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 
2012-2013, 80 FR 26897 (May 11, 2015).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties 
on all appropriate entries in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b). 
Because we determined that Tianjin Tonghe and Ningbo Homey are not 
eligible for a separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity, we 
will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 114.90 
percent (i.e., the China-wide entity rate) to all entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR that were exported by these companies. In 
addition, as Commerce continues to find that Wah Yuen did not have any 
shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, we will instruct CBP 
to assess any suspended entries of subject merchandise associated with 
Wah Yuen at the China-wide rate.
    Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier 
than 35 days after the date of publication of these final results of 
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 a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 
90 days of publication).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all

[[Page 37120]]

shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse,

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    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 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 occurred and the subsequent assessment of double 
antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (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 sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h) and
