On June 12, 2014, the Department of Commerce (“Department”) published the preliminary results of antidumping duty new shipper reviews of multilayered wood flooring (“MLWF”) from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”).
We invited interested parties to comment on our preliminary results. Following our analysis of the comments, we made no changes to our preliminary margin calculations for new shippers Dalian Huade Wood Product Co., Ltd. (“Huade”), Linyi Bonn Flooring Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (“Bonn Flooring”), and Zhejiang Fuerjia Wooden Co., Ltd. (“Fuerjia”), and we continue to find that Huade, Bonn Flooring, and Fuerjia did not make sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value.

The Department published the Preliminary Results on June 12, 2014.
On July 14, 2014, The Coalition for American Hardwood Parity (“CAHP”) submitted its case brief, and on July 21, 2014, Bonn Flooring submitted a rebuttal brief.
Period of Review
The period of review (“POR”) for Bonn Flooring and Fuerjia is December 1, 2012 through May 31, 2013. The POR for Huade is December 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013.
Huade's sale of subject merchandise was made during the POR specified by the Department's regulations, but the shipment entered within thirty days after the end of that POR. When the sale of the subject merchandise occurs within the POR specified by the Department's regulations, but the entry occurs after the POR, the specified POR may be extended unless it would be likely to prevent the completion of the review within the time limits set by the Department's regulations.
This POR corresponds to the period from the date of suspension of liquidation to the end of the month immediately preceding the first semiannual anniversary month pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(ii)(B).

The merchandise covered by the order includes MLWF, subject to certain exceptions.

Final Results Margin
The Department finds that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists:
|Dalian Huade Wood Product Co., Ltd||Dalian Huade Wood Product Co., Ltd||0.00|
|Linyi Bonn Flooring Manufacturing Co., Ltd||Linyi Bonn Flooring Manufacturing Co., Ltd||0.00|
|Zhejiang Fuerjia Wooden Co., Ltd||Zhejiang Fuerjia Wooden Co., Ltd||0.00|
We intend to disclose to parties the calculations performed in this proceeding within five days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, 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. For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by the companies individually examined during these reviews, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate.
Cash Deposit Requirements
The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of these new shipper reviews for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the “Act”): (1) For the exporter/producer combinations listed above, the cash deposit rate will be 0.00 percent and (2) for subject merchandise exported by Bonn Flooring, Fuerjia, or Huade but not self-produced by the respective exporters, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 58.84 percent.
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 these PORs. 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.
Notification Regarding APO
This notice also serves as a reminder to the parties subject to administrative protective order (“APO”) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of business proprietary information (“BPI”) disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern BPI in this segment of the proceeding. Timely notification of 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.
This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Act.
