Background

On June 11, 2013, and June 13, 2013, the Department disclosed to interested parties its calculations for the Final Results. On June 17, 2013, Weihai Xiangguang Mechanical Industrial Co., Ltd. (Weihai) filed a ministerial error allegation. On June 24, 2013, the petitioner, Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers Coalition, filed comments in response to Weihai's ministerial error allegation.

Scope of the Order

The merchandise subject to the order is diamond sawblades. The diamond sawblades subject to the order are currently classifiable under subheadings 8202 to 8206 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), and may also enter under 6804.21.00. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the decision memorandum dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this amended final.[2] The written description is dispositive.

Ministerial Error

Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.224(f) define a “ministerial error” as an error “in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.” After analyzing Weihai's ministerial error allegation, we have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made a ministerial error in our calculations, having unintentionally incorporated certain factor-of-production variables from a subsequently-revised database into the Final Results for Weihei.

In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results of this administrative review of the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades from the PRC. The revised weighted-average dumping margins are listed below. For a detailed discussion, see Decision Memorandum for Amended Final.

Rate for Non-Selected Separate-Rate Recipients

As a result of the correction of the ministerial error, both respondents selected for individual examination have a dumping margin of zero percent.[3] Consistent with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, and because all prior rates for this proceeding were calculated using a methodology the Department abandoned in its Final Modification for Reviews pursuant to section 123 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act,[4] the Department's prior decisions in administrative reviews involving similar circumstances,[5] we find that a reasonable method for determining the weighted-average dumping margins for the non-selected respondents in the amended final results of this administrative review is to average the weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the selected respondents. Consequently, the rate established for the non-selected separate rate respondents is 0.00 percent. For a detailed discussion, see Decision Memorandum for Amended Final.

Amended Final Results of the Review

Disclosure

We will disclose the calculation memorandum used in our analysis to parties to this proceeding within five days of the date of the publication of this notice pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment

Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in accordance with the amended final results of this review. In accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews,[8] we will instruct CBP to liquidate entries by the firms listed above without regard to antidumping duties.

On October 24, 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases.[9] Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by Weihai, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate.

We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the amended final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

The following cash deposit requirements will be effective retroactively on any entries made on or after June 17, 2013, the date of publication of the Final Results, for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For subject merchandise exported by the companies listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in this amended final results of review for each exporter as listed above; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; (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 shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification

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 review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

This notice also serves as a 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 sanctionable violation.

These amended final results of review are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
