    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the

the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).

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 in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
date of publication of the final results of this review.
    If Nan Ya's weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 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 the 
importer's examined sales and the total entered value of the 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 above de minimis. Where the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, 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. 
The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment 
of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final 
results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, 
where applicable.
    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 each respondent for which they 
did not know that their merchandise it sold to a reseller was destined 
for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate of 2.40 percent \8\ 
if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.\9\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of PET Film from Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) the cash deposit rate for the company 
under review will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will 
be required); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
listed above, 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 less-than-
fair-value 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

Notification to Interested Parties

    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 Secretary'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(h)(1).
