Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined that Baosteel did not have any reviewable transactions of subject merchandise during the POR because there was no evidence on the record indicating that Baosteel had entries of subject merchandise during the POR.2 We stated, consistent with the refinement to the Department’s assessment practice in non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) cases, that we would not to rescind the review in these circumstances but, rather, would complete the review with respect to Baosteel and issue appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) based on the final results of the review.3 As stated above, we did not receive any comments on our Preliminary Results. Therefore, we continue to determine that Baosteel had no reviewable transactions of subject merchandise during the POR. Consistent with our ‘‘automatic assessment’’ clarification, the Department will issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on our final results.4 Assessment Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases.5 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case 2 See Preliminary Results, 78 FR at 42040. 3 Id. 4 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (‘‘Assessment Practice Refinement’’); see also the ‘‘Assessment’’ section of this notice, below. 5 See Assessment Practice Refinement.

These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 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. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to the 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).

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined 
that Baosteel did not have any reviewable transactions of subject 
merchandise during the POR because there was no evidence on the record 
indicating that Baosteel had entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR.\2\ We stated, consistent with the refinement to the Department's 
assessment practice in non-market economy (``NME'') cases, that we 
would not to rescind the review in these circumstances but, rather, 
would complete the review with respect to Baosteel and issue 
appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') based on the final results of the review.\3\ As stated above, 
we did not receive any comments on our Preliminary Results. Therefore, 
we continue to determine that Baosteel had no reviewable transactions 
of subject merchandise during the POR. Consistent with our ``automatic 
assessment'' clarification, the Department will issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on our final results.\4\

Assessment

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of the final results of review. The 
Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME 
cases.\5\ Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that 
were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies 
individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if the 
Department determines that an exporter under review 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 NME-
wide rate.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) for previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above 
that 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 which have not been found to 
be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-
wide rate of 90.83 percent; and (3) for all non-PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that 
supplied that non-PRC exporter. These 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 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.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to the 
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 notification of the 
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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and this notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: October 23, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
