See also Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China; Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 42301 (July 22, 2005) (no change in amended final determination). Assessment Rates pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES The Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For CFP–Three Star, we calculated customer–specific antidumping duty assessment amounts based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales of subject merchandise to the total quantity of subject merchandise sold in those transactions. We calculated assessment amounts in this fashion, as opposed to calculating importer– specific ad valorem rates in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because the entered values and importers of record for CFP–Three Star’s reported U.S. sales are not on the record. Where the customer–specific assessment rate is above de minimis, we will instruct CBP to assess the customer–specific rate uniformly on the entered customs value of all POR entries of subject merchandise sold to the customer. To determine whether the per–unit duty assessment rates were de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent ad valorem), in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculated customer–specific ad valorem ratios based on the export prices. For Dixon and Shandong Rongxin (respondents that are being assigned the dumping margin calculated for CFP–Three Star), we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on entries of merchandise from these companies equal to the dumping margin these companies have received in these final results of review, regardless of the importer of, or customer who purchased, their subject merchandise. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review. Cash–Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will apply to all shipments of certain cased pencils from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:26 May 11, 2007 Jkt 211001 consumption on or after the publication date of this notice of final results of administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) the cash deposit rates for the companies listed in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section above will be the rates for those firms established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for any previously reviewed or investigated PRC or non–PRC exporter, not covered in this review, with a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the company– specific rate established in the most recent segment of this proceeding; (3) for all other PRC exporters, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC–wide rate, which is 114.9 percent; and (4) the cash deposit rate for any non–PRC exporter of subject merchandise from the PRC will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that exporter. These cash deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: May 3, 2007. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. APPENDIX This notice 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 this review period. 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.
