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 in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during the administrative review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the Vietnam-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter 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 Vietnam-wide rate.25 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of these reviews for shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of these reviews (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnam and non-Vietnam 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; (3) for all 22 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 24 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 25 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 23 See VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:50 Sep 10, 2013 Jkt 229001 Vietnam 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 Vietnam -wide entity; and (4) for all non-Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnam exporter that supplied that non-Vietnam exporter. With respect to Golden Quality, the new shipper respondent, the Department has established a combination cash deposit rate for this company consistent with its practice as follows: (1) For subject merchandise produced and exported by Golden Quality, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for Golden Quality in the final results of the NSR; (2) for subject merchandise exported by Golden Quality, but not produced by Golden Quality, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the Vietnam-wide entity; and (3) for subject merchandise produced by Golden Quality but not exported by Golden Quality, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the 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 the POR. 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.

    In a letter dated August 23, 2013, BTIC withdrew its request for 
review of itself. No other parties requested a review.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is seamless steel cylinders 
designed for storage or transport of compressed or liquefied gas 
(``high pressure steel cylinders''). High pressure steel cylinders are 
fabricated of chrome alloy steel including, but not limited to, 
chromium-molybdenum steel or chromium magnesium steel, and have 
permanently impressed into the steel, either before or after 
importation, the symbol of a U.S. Department of Transportation, 
Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (``DOT'') 
approved high pressure steel cylinder manufacturer, as well as an 
approved DOT type marking of DOT 3A, 3AX, 3AA, 3AAX, 3B, 3E, 3HT, 3T, 
or DOT-E (followed by a specific exemption number) in accordance with 
the requirements of sections 178.36 through 178.68 of Title 49 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations, or any subsequent amendments thereof. High 
pressure steel cylinders covered by the investigation have a water 
capacity up to 450 liters, and a gas capacity ranging from 8 to 702 
cubic feet, regardless of corresponding service pressure levels and 
regardless of physical dimensions, finish or coatings.
    Excluded from the scope of the order are high pressure steel 
cylinders manufactured to UN-ISO-9809-1 and 2 specifications and 
permanently impressed with ISO or UN symbols. Also excluded from the 
investigation are acetylene cylinders, with or without internal porous 
mass, and permanently impressed with 8A or 8AL in accordance with DOT 
regulations.
    Merchandise covered by the order is classified in the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') under subheading 
7311.00.00.30. Subject merchandise may also enter under HTSUS 
subheadings 7311.00.00.60 or 7311.00.00.90. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the merchandise under the investigation is 
dispositive.

Rescission of Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. BTIC 
timely withdrew its request for review of itself. Because no other 
party requested a review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the 
Department is rescinding the entire administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on high pressure steel cylinders from the PRC 
for the period December 15, 2011, to May 31, 2013.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
Antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit 
of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or 
withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
this notice in the Federal Register, if appropriate.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. 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 terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
751(a) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(4).
