Assessment

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b). We have calculated 
importer-specific duty assessment rates on a per-unit basis. 
Specifically, we divided the total dumping margins (calculated as the 
difference between normal value and export price or constructed export 
price) for each importer by the total quantity of subject merchandise 
sold to that importer during the POR to calculate a per-unit assessment 
amount. In this and any future review, we will direct CBP to assess 
importer-specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit 
(i.e., per-kilogram) rates by the weight in kilograms of each entry of 
the subject merchandise during the POR. The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this new shipper review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this final results of this new shipper review for all 
shipments of subject merchandise by NTSF, entered, or withdrawn from 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 NTSF, 
the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for subject merchandise 
exported by NTSF, but not manufactured by NTSF, the cash deposit rate 
will continue to be the Vietnam-wide rate of $2.11/Kilogram; and (3) 
for subject merchandise manufactured by NTSF, but exported by any party 
other than NTSF, 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 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).
