These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. These preliminary results are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4), and 19 CFR 351.214. Dated: August 31, 2011.

SUMMARY: On August 19, 2011, the binational panel issued its decision 
in the review of the final results of the 2004/2005 antidumping 
administrative review made by the U.S. Department of Commerce, 
respecting Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Mexico, NAFTA 
Secretariat File Number USA-MEX-2007-1904-01. The binational panel 
affirmed in part and remanded in part the Commerce's determination. 
Copies of the panel decision are available from the U.S. Section of the 
NAFTA Secretariat.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Chapter 19 of the North American Free-Trade 
Agreement (``Agreement'') establishes a mechanism to replace domestic 
judicial review of final determinations in antidumping and 
countervailing duty cases involving imports from a NAFTA country with 
review by independent binational panels. When a Request for Panel 
Review is filed, a panel is established to act in place of national 
courts to review expeditiously the final determination to determine 
whether it conforms with the antidumping or countervailing duty law of 
the country that made the determination.
    Under Article 1904 of the Agreement, which came into force on 
January 1, 1994, the Government of the United States, the Government of 
Canada and the Government of Mexico established Rules of Procedure for 
Article 1904 Binational Panel Reviews (``Rules''). These Rules were 
published in the Federal Register on February 23, 1994 (59 FR 8686). 
The panel review in this matter has been conducted in accordance with 
these Rules.

    Panel Decision: On April 14, 2010, the initial decision was issued 
by this panel remanding to the U.S. Department of Commerce to: (1) 
Recalculate Mexinox's dumping margins without zeroing, and (2) to 
recalculate the indirect selling expense ratio (ISE) in a manner not 
inconsistent with the panel's opinion and affirming Commerce's 
determinations on all other issues being contested. The Department's 
decision in the final results of the 2004/2005 antidumping review was, 
in all other respects, upheld.
    On August 19, 2011, with two dissenting views, the panel majority 
remanded to Commerce its Remand Determination to comply with its 
instructions in the April 2010 initial decision. The panel directed 
Commerce to issue its Final Re-determination on this second remand 
within thirty (30) days from the date of this panel decision.
