A list of the issues that parties raised and to which we responded is attached to this notice as an Appendix. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a Start Printed Page 14202public document and is on-file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit (CRU), room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building.

The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content.
Changes Since the Preliminary Results
Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made the following company-specific changes to Navneet's final margin calculation: (1) We made changes to the SAS Comparison Market and Margin Programs for the beginning date for U.S. sales; (2) we corrected the margin program by applying the U.S. dollar denomination for the duty drawback credit; and (3) we corrected the comparison market program by applying the net quantity NTQTY2H, net of returns, as the home market sales quantity. We also corrected the draft liquidation instructions for both Navneet and Kokuyo Riddhi. As a result of these changes, the weighted-average dumping margin for Navneet and the non-selected companies has changed.
Final Results of the Review
As a result of this review, the Department calculated a dumping margin of zero for both Kokuyo Riddhi and Navneet. We are applying to the non-selected companies the rates calculated for the mandatory respondents in these final results, as referenced below.
|Kokuyo Riddhi Paper Products Private Limited||0.00|
|Navneet Education Ltd||0.00|
|Goldenpalm Manufacturers PVT Limited||0.00|
|Magic International Pvt. Ltd||0.00|
|Marisa International (Marisa)||0.00|
|Pioneer Stationery Pvt Ltd (Pioneer)||0.00|
|SGM Paper Products||0.00|
The Department shall determine and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.
Pursuant to the Final Modification for Reviews, because the above-listed respondents' weighted-average dumping margins are zero, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
We intend to issue assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review.
Cash Deposit Requirements
The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review 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) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): (1) The cash deposit rate for respondents noted above will be the rate established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 3.91 percent, the all-others rate established in the original antidumping duty investigation.
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.
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) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during the POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
Administrative Protective Order
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(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/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 are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
