All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this changed-circumstances review are addressed in the “Issues and Decision Memorandum” (Decision Memo) from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary, dated December 1, 2008, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues which parties have raised and to which we have responded is in the Decision Memo and attached to this notice as an Appendix. The Decision Memo, which is a public document, is on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU), main Department of Commerce building, Room 1117, and is accessible on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/index.html.

After consideration of the comments, we continue to find that myonic is the successor-in-interest to MKL and, as such, is entitled to MKL's cash-deposit rate with respect to entries of subject merchandise. Consequently, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to apply the cash-deposit rate in effect for MKL to all entries of the subject merchandise from myonic that were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this changed-circumstances review.
