All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties are addressed in the “Certain Kitchen Appliance Shelving and Racks from the People's Republic of China: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of the Second Antidumping Duty Administrative Review,” dated concurrently with this notice (“Issues & Decision Memo”). A list of the issues raised by interested parties is attached to this notice as Appendix I. The Issues & Decision Memo is a public document and is on file electronically via Import Administration's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (“IA ACCESS”). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues & Decision Memo can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia.

Scope of the Order Back to Top

The products covered by the order are certain kitchen appliance shelving and racks. [3] The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (“HTSUS”) subheadings 8418.99.8050, 8418.99.8060, 7321.90.5000, 7321.90.6090, 8516.90.8000, 7321.90.6040, 8516.90.8010 and 8419.90.9520. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the Department's written description of the scope of the order remains dispositive. [4]

Changes Since the Preliminary Results Back to Top

Based on the comments received from the interested parties, we have made no changes to the Preliminary Results. For a discussion of the issues, see the Issues & Decision Memo.

Final Partial Rescission Back to Top

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the initiation notice of the requested review. As noted in the Preliminary Results, Petitioners timely requested an administrative review for Asia Pacific CIS (Wuxi) Co., Ltd., Hengtong Hardware Manufacturing (Huizhou) Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Weixi Group, Co., and Leader Metal Industry Co., Ltd. (aka Marmon Retail Services Asia); companies that had previously not received a separate rate in earlier segments of this proceeding. Then Petitioners timely withdrew their requests for review of the aforementioned companies. [5] Petitioners were the only parties to request an administrative review of those companies.

For the final results, the Department is rescinding the review with respect to those companies for which this review was initiated but had not received a separate rate in earlier segments of this proceeding. As described above, Petitioners withdrew their review request covering those companies. The Department did not rescind this review in the Preliminary Results for those companies that had not established their eligibility for a separate rate in earlier segments of this proceeding and were considered part of the PRC-wide entity, which could potentially be under review for the final results of this administrative review. [6] The PRC-wide entity did not come under review for these final results. Therefore, the Department is rescinding this review with respect to the above-identified companies.

Final Results of the Review Back to Top

The dumping margins for the POR are as follows:

Exporter Weighted-average dumping margin
New King Shan (Zhu Hai) Co., Ltd 0.00%

Assessment Rates Back to Top

Consistent with these final results, and pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department will calculate importer (or customer) -specific assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of the dumping margins calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales. The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific assessment rate is above de minimis.

The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy (“NME”) cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate. [7]

Cash Deposit Requirements Back to Top

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 the PRC 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 the exporter listed above, the cash deposit rate will be established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, no cash deposit will be required for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure Back to Top

We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties Back to Top

This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 the Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders Back to Top

This notice also serves as a 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, 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.

We are issuing and publishing this administrative review and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

Dated: January 17, 2013.

Paul Piquado,

Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
