Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: December 26, 2013.

the Department's practice to refrain from rescinding the review with 
respect to the exporters at this time.\6\ Although their requests for 
review were timely withdrawn, the exporters remain part of the PRC-wide 
entity. Therefore, we do not intend to rescind the review with respect 
to these companies, as they all remain a part of the PRC-wide entity 
under review for these preliminary results.

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, which will include the results of our analysis 
of all issues raised in the briefs, within 120 days after the 
publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, 
pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results of this review, the Department 
will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries of subject merchandise covered by this review.\14\ 
For the PRC-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping 
duties at an ad valorem rate equal to the weighted-average dumping 
margin published in the final results of this review. The Department 
intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date 
of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal 
Register.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 U.S. sales databases submitted by 
companies individually examined during the review, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-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 PRC-wide rate.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements, when imposed, will apply 
to all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For any previously reviewed or 
investigated PRC and non-PRC exporter not listed above that received a 
separate rate in a previous segment of this proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate 
published for the most recently completed period; (2) for all PRC 
exporters that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, 
the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 
453.79 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 exporter that supplied the 
non-PRC exporter. These cash 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 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: December 18, 2013.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
