Download as PDF 24798 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 99 / Tuesday, May 26, 2009 / Notices Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we will calculate importer–specific (or customer) ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of the dumping margins calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer–specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. Cash–Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of these final results of the new shipper review for all shipments of subject merchandise by BIM Seafood, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’): (1) for subject merchandise produced and exported by BIM Seafood, the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for subject merchandise exported by BIM Seafood, but not manufactured by BIM Seafood, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the Vietnam–wide rate of 25.76 percent; and (3) for subject merchandise manufactured by BIM Seafood, but exported by any party other than BIM Seafood, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the exporter. These cash deposit requirements will remain in effect until further notice. 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 duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their VerDate Nov<24>2008 20:08 May 22, 2009 Jkt 217001 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 in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(h) and 351.221(b)(5). Dated: May 18, 2009. Ronald K.
