The Department intends to issue assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these final results of review. Because we have calculated a zero margin for Akzo Nobel in the final results of this review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003.3 This clarification applies to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced and exported by Akzo Nobel for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate effective during the POR if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.4 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publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Akzo Nobel will be the rate established in the final results of this review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not covered 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 or any previous review or in the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation but the manufacturer is, the cashdeposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any previous review or the 3 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment Policy Notice). 4 See Assessment Policy Notice for a full discussion of this clarification.

Reimbursement of Duties This notice also 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 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. Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation, which is subject to sanction. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: December 18, 2014. Ronald K.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain revisions to the weighted-average dumping margin calculation for Dubai Wire, which we included in the PostPreliminary Results, where applicable. A detailed discussion of each change made is in the company-specific analysis memorandum dated concurrently with this notice, which is on file electronically via ACCESS and in the CRU of the main Commerce building.8 No changes have been made with respect to our determination for Precision.

Precision Fasteners, L.L.C. ............................. 18.13 184.41 Assessment Rates The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), for Dubai Wire, we calculated an importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for an importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of such sales. We have continued to rely on adverse facts available to establish Precision’s weighted-average dumping margin in these final results, and therefore, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 184.41 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported by Precision. We will instruct CBP to take into account the ‘‘provisional measures 8 See the company-specific final analysis memorandum for Dubai Wire dated concurrently with this notice.

this administrative review are addressed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum. A list of the issues which parties have raised and to which 
we have responded is in the Issues and Decision Memorandum and attached 
to this notice as an Appendix. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain 
revisions to the weighted-average dumping margin calculation for Dubai 
Wire, which we included in the Post-Preliminary Results, where 
applicable. A detailed discussion of each change made is in the 
company-specific analysis memorandum dated concurrently with this 
notice, which is on file electronically via ACCESS and in the CRU of 
the main Commerce building.\8\ No changes have been made with respect 
to our determination for Precision.

Wire dated concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist for the period November 3, 2011, through April 30, 2013:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                            Weighted-

Precision Fasteners, L.L.C............................            184.41
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), for Dubai Wire, we calculated an importer- (or customer-
) specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total 
amount of antidumping duties calculated for an importer's examined 
sales and the total entered value of such sales. We have continued to 
rely on adverse facts available to establish Precision's weighted-
average dumping margin in these final results, and therefore, we will 
instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 184.41 percent 
to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were 
produced and/or exported by Precision. We will instruct CBP to take 
into account the ``provisional measures cap'' in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(d).
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\9\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Dubai Wire 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of certain steel nails from the UAE 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

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 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 doubled antidumping duties.
