The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).5 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of PET Film from the UAE entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the companies under review will be the rate established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-thanfair-value investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 4.05 5 In these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation methodology adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

Therefore, we preliminarily determine that Hubei Xingfa and Norwest had no reviewable transactions of subject merchandise during the POR.

Sodium Hexametaphosphate From the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2011-
2012

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the 
Department of Commerce (the ``Department'') is conducting the third 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on sodium 
hexametaphosphate (``sodium hex'') from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC'') for the period of review (``POR'') March 1, 2011, through 
February 29, 2012. The Department has preliminarily determined that 
there are no reviewable entries during the POR.

DATES: Effective Date: December 7, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul Walker, AD/CVD Operations, Office 
9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone 202.482.0413.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order consists of sodium hexametaphosphate.\1\ 
The merchandise subject to this order is currently classifiable in the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') statistical 
reporting number 2835.39.5000. However, it may also be imported as a 
blend or mixture under heading 3824.90.3900. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written product description, available in the Order remains 
dispositive.\2\

Preliminary Finding of No Shipments

    Hubei Xingfa Chemical Group Co., Ltd. (``Hubei Xingfa'') and 
Sichuan Mianzhu Norwest Phosphate Co. (``Norwest'') submitted timely-
filed certifications that they had no sales of subject merchandise to 
the United States during the POR.\3\ The Department also received 
information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') 
indicating that there were no reviewable transactions from Hubei Xingfa 
or Norwest during the POR. Therefore, we preliminarily determine that 
Hubei Xingfa and Norwest had no reviewable transactions of subject 
merchandise during the POR. Because Hubei Xingfa and Norwest submitted 
timely no-shipment certifications and CBP data indicated that there 
were no reviewable transactions for these companies during the POR, we 
preliminarily determine that these two companies will retain their 
separate rate from the previous

brief summary of the argument, and a table of authorities cited. The 
Department intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of our analysis of issues raised in the 
written comments, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary 
results.

regulations.
    \10\ See section 351.309(d) of the Department's regulations.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and 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. The 
Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment practice 
in NME cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that 
were not reported by companies examined during this review, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide 
rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under 
review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended 
entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that 
exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate.\11\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above 
that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-
specific rate; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that 
have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit 
rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; and (3) for all non-PRC 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. 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 section 351.402(f)(2) of the Department's 
regulations 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 Department's presumption that reimbursement of 
antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double 
antidumping duties.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and section 351.221(b)(4) 
of the Department's regulations.
