Disclosure

    We will disclose calculation memoranda used in our analysis to 
parties to these proceedings within five days of the date of the 
release of this notice pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has 
determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in 
accordance with the final results of this review. The Department 
intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date 
of publication of these final results of review.
    For assessment purposes, Husteel and HYSCO reported the name of the 
importer of record and the entered value for all of their sales to the 
United States during the period of review (POR). Accordingly, we 
calculated importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment 
rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total entered 
value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 
Where an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard 
to antidumping duties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Husteel and HYSCO for which they 
did not know were destined for the United States. In such instances, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others 
rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in 
the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption, on or after the date of publication as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for Husteel and HYSCO will be equal to the respective weighted-average 
dumping margin established in the final results of this review; (2) for 
merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this 
review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published 
for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which 
that manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not 
a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding for the manufacturer of subject merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 4.80 percent, the ``all others'' rate established 
pursuant to a court decision.\4\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notifications

    This notice 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or 
conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure 
to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a 
sanctionable violation.
    These final results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.

    Dated: June 5, 2013.
