In this case, although the rate for the only investigated company is based entirely on facts available under section 776 of the Act, there is no other information on the record upon which we could determine an ‘‘all others’’ rate. As a result, we have used the rate for TK as the ‘‘all others’’ rate. Exporter/Manufacturer Net Subsidy Rate PT. Pabrik Kertas Tjiwi Kimia Tbk .................. All Others ...................... 40.55 percent 40.55 percent As a result of our Preliminary Determination and pursuant to section 703(d) of the Act, we instructed the CBP to suspend liquidation of all entries of certain lined paper products from Indonesia which were entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after February 13, 2006, the date of the publication of the Preliminary Determination in the Federal Register. In accordance with section 703(d) of the Act, we instructed CBP to discontinue the suspension of liquidation for subject merchandise for countervailing duty purposes entered on or after June 13, 2006, but to continue the suspension of liquidation of entries made from February 13, 2006, through June 12, 2006. We will issue a countervailing duty order and reinstate the suspension of liquidation under section 706(a) of the Act if the ITC issues a final affirmative injury determination, and will require a cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties for such entries of merchandise in the amounts indicated above. If the ITC determines that material injury, or threat of material injury, does not exist, this proceeding will be terminated and all estimated duties deposited or securities posted as a result of the suspension of liquidation will be refunded or canceled. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES ITC Notification In accordance with section 705(d) of the Act, we will notify the ITC of our determination.
