Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries. For importers/customers of the respondent where 
the respondent did not report entered values, we have calculated 
importer/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. For importers/customers of the 
respondent where the respondent reported entered values, we have 
calculated an ad valorem rate for that importer/customer by dividing 
the total amount of antidumping duties calculated in the examined sales 
of subject merchandise by the total entered value of those 
transactions. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions 
to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of 
NSR.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results of NSR 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subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 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)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For shipments of subject 
merchandise produced and exported in the combinations listed above in 
the Final Results of Review section of this notice, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate shown above; (2) for shipments of subject 
merchandise exported by Kangtai or Juancheng Ouya Chemical Co., Ltd. 
(``Ouya'') but not produced by either of these companies, the cash 
deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 285.63 percent; (3) for 
shipments of subject merchandise produced by Kangtai or Ouya but 
exported by any party other than Kangtai or Ouya, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate applicable to the exporter. These deposit requirements 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification of Interested Parties

    This notice also 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.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), 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.

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed for these final results 
within five days of the date of publication of this notice to 
interested parties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
    We are issuing and publishing these final results and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B), 751(a)(2)(C), and 777(i)(1) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
