SUMMARY: In response to requests from Aqualon Company, a division of Hercules Inc., (Petitioner) and respondents CP Kelco Oy and CP Kelco U.S., Inc. (collectively, CP Kelco), the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on purified carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) from Finland. The period of review (POR) is July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012. We preliminarily find that CP Kelco made sales at prices below normal value (NV) during the POR. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties based on differences between the export price (EP) or constructed export price (CEP) and NV. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: August 16, 2013.

    Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall 
determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If CP Kelco's weighted-
average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis in the final results 
of this review, we will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on 
the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties 
calculated for an importer's examined sales and the total entered value

weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final

results of review, or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, 
we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without 
regard to dumping margins.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\7\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by CP Kelco for which it did not 
know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction.

and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping 
Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

the final results of this review.

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all shipments of CMC from Finland entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by 
section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for CP Kelco Oy

meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate 
will be zero; (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 recent period in which the 
manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not a 
firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-than-
fair-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; (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 6.65 percent, the
