refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases, if the Department

liquidated at the PRC-wide rate. For a full discussion of this

Act: (1) For Hunan Valin, which had no shipments, the cash deposit rate 
will remain unchanged from the rate assigned to this company in the 
most recently completed review of the company; (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters who are not under 
review in this segment of the proceeding but which have separate rates, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate 
published for the most recent period; (2) for all PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, including Baosteel and Shanghai Pudong, the cash deposit 
rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 128.59 percent; and (3) for all non-

rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter(s) 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 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
