If FENC’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., ‘‘{w}here the weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.’’ 6 If an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, then the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 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 FENC for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States.

the Act.

Assessment Rates

    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 FENC'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 dumping calculated for an 
importer's examined sales and the total entered value of such sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If FENC's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard 
to antidumping duties in accordance with the Final Modification for 
Reviews, i.e., ``{w{time} here the weighted-average margin of dumping 
for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping 
duties will be assessed.'' \6\ If an importer-specific assessment rate 
is zero or de minimis, then the Department will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 FENC 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 all-others 
rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in 
the transaction.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping 
Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment Policy Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with the Assessment Policy Notice, if we continue to 
find that Nan Ya had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United 
States in the final results of this review, we intend to instruct CBP 
to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by Nan Ya and 
exported by other parties at the all-others rate if there is no rate 
for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of PSF from Taiwan 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 FENC will 
be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the 
final results of this administrative review; (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 for which there is a completed segment of this 
proceeding; (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 which there is a completed segment for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 7.31 percent.\8\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation
