The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the amended final results of this new shipper review. For assessment purposes, we calculated importer (or customer)specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. We will continue to direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit (i.e., perkilogram) rates by the weight in kilograms of each entry of the subject merchandise during the POR. Specifically, we calculated importerspecific duty assessment rates on a perunit rate basis by dividing the total dumping margins (calculated as the difference between normal value and export price or constructed export price) for each importer by the total sales quantity of subject merchandise sold to that importer during the POR. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent or more). Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:55 Aug 07, 2013 Jkt 229001 antidumping duties, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective retroactively on any entries made after July 2, 2013, the date of publication of the Final Results, for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the amended final results of these new shipper reviews, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For subject merchandise produced and exported by Hoang Long, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the amended final results of this new shipper review; (2) for subject merchandise exported by Hoang Long, but not manufactured by Hoang Long, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the Vietnam-wide rate (i.e., $2.11/ kilogram); 3 and (3) for subject merchandise manufactured by Hoang Long, but exported by any other party, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the exporter. The cash deposit requirement, when imposed, shall 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)(2) 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. 3 See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper Reviews; 2010–2011, 78 FR 17350, 17353 (March 21, 2013).
