Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date. The Department will issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.6 If Koehler’s weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate an importer-specific per-unit duty assessment rate by aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity of those sales, because Koehler did not report entered value for all its U.S. sales. To determine whether this duty assessment rate is de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will calculate an importer-specific ad valorem ratio based on the estimated entered value. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. Where either Koehler’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or the importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.7 The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Koehler for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

Cash Deposit Requirements List of Topics Discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Koehler will be the rate established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 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; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 6.50 percent, the all-others rate established in Lightweight Thermal Paper from Germany: Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 73 FR 57326, 57328 (October 2, 2008). These 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) 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.

AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Event Description The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy, is organizing a Japan-United States Decommissioning and Remediation Fukushima Recovery Forum (‘‘Fukushima Recovery Forum’’) on February 18–19 in Tokyo, Japan. The Fukushima Recovery Forum will be a venue for U.S. firms to hear from Japanese Ministries and commissioning entities on plans for Fukushima Recovery and for U.S. and Japanese firms to share experiences, expertise, and lessons learned in remediation and decommissioning, including on work underway at Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station, and in Tohoku, the area affected by the accident at Fukushima. U.S. firms will also be given an opportunity to network with Japanese firms and identify potential business partners. ITA hopes that this cooperation between the U.S. and Japanese private sectors will lead to solutions that will enhance Fukushima recovery efforts. ITA is seeking the participation of a maximum of approximately 25 U.S. companies that produce technology or provide services in the decommissioning or remediation sector, including water treatment and waste management. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Global Markets and U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service (CS) will also be available in Tokyo to provide its export counseling services to participating companies. Support for the Fukushima Recovery Forum was confirmed at the 2nd meeting of the U.S-Japan Bilateral Commission on Civil Nuclear Cooperation. The Bilateral Commission serves as a senior-level, standing forum for consultations on mutual issues of concern, to further strengthen bilateral cooperation and to advance shared interest in the area of civil nuclear cooperation. The Bilateral Commission is chaired by the Department of Energy and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI). There are five working groups under the Bilateral Commission to coordinate bilateral cooperation in the areas of civil nuclear energy research and development, the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, environmental management, emergency management, nuclear security, and safety and regulatory issues.

week after the issuance of the Husteel's verification report, and 
rebuttal comments (rebuttal briefs) within five days after the time 
limit for filing case briefs. Parties who submit case briefs or 
rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged to submit with each 
argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the 
argument; and (3) a table of authorities.\3\ Case and rebuttal briefs

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, or to participate if one is requested, must submit a 
written request to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and

Assessment Rates

    For Husteel and HYSCO, upon issuance of the final results, the 
Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review. Husteel and HYSCO reported the name of the 
importer of record and the entered value for all of their sales to the 
United States during the POR. If Husteel and HYSCO's weighted-average 
dumping margins are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 
percent) 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 dumping calculated for each importer's examined sales 
and the total entered value of those sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).
    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific 
assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not 
zero or de minimis. Where either the respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis,\6\ or an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.

merchandise

during the POR produced by Husteel and HYSCO for which they did not 
know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the

involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this

    For Husteel and HYSCO, we intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 
days after publication of the final results of this review.
    For the rescinded companies, antidumping duties shall be assessed 
at rates equal to the rates for 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 appropriate assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements for estimated antidumping 
duties will be effective upon publication of the notice of final 
results of administrative review for all shipments of CWP from Korea 
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 HYSCO and Husteel will be equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results of 
this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers 
or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior 
completed segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
prior review, or the original investigation but the producer has been 
covered in a prior complete segment of this proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period 
for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other producers or exporters will continue to be 4.80 percent, the 
``all others'' rate established in the order.\7\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder and, with respect to 
companies which we rescind in part 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 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.
    The Department is issuing and publishing these results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

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