In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated importer–specific assessment rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales made during the POR to the total customs value of the sales used to calculate those duties.

We will direct CBP to assess the resulting assessment rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise on each of the importer’s entries during the POR. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all– others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this new shipper review are addressed in the ``Issues and Decision 
Memorandum'' (Decision Memorandum) from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. Spooner,

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and the CBP shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. In accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated importer-specific assessment 
rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of 
antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales made during the 
POR to the total customs value of the sales used to calculate those 
duties. The Department will issue appropriate ad valorem assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication

[[Page 19178]]

of these final results of review. We will direct CBP to assess the 
resulting assessment rate against the entered customs values for the 
subject merchandise on each of the importer's entries during the POR.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the period of review produced by companies 
included in these final results of review for which the reviewed 
companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this new shipper review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Tariff Act):
    (1) the cash deposit for Patagonik/CSR will be the rate established 
in the final results of this new shipper review;
    (2) for any previously reviewed or investigated company not listed 
above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific 
rate published in the most recent period;
    (3) the cash deposit rate for entries of subject merchandise 
exported/produced by Patagonik/CSR but not produced by Patagonik/CSR 
will continue to be the ``all other's'' rate of 30.24 percent or the 
rate applicable to the producer/exporter if so established; and
    (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered 
in this or any previous review conducted by the Department, the cash 
deposit rate will be the ``all others'' rate from the LTFV 
investigation (30.24 percent). See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order; 
Honey From Argentina, 66 FR 63672 (December 10, 2001). These deposit 
requirements shall remain in effect until publication of the final 
results of the next administrative review.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice 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 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    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, 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 terms of an APO 
is a violation, which is subject to sanction. We are issuing and 
publishing this determination and notice in accordance with sections 
section 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act.
