The Department intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of our analysis of issues raised in the written non-market economy entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of the entity.

Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review (see 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1)). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. For the final results, if we continue to treat the nine companies upon which the review was initiated as part of the PRC-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 47.64 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported by those companies. The Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) cases.13 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported by companies examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-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 NME-wide rate.14 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporterspecific rate; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate (including those companies identified above upon which this review was initiated), the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity; and (3) for all non-PRC exporters of subject 13 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (‘‘NME Assessment 2011’’). 14 Id.

Notification to Importers This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to the 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.

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party or parties 
that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the

As noted above, the petitioners withdrew their request for review of 
the 22 exporters/producers within 90 days of the publication date of 
the notice of initiation. No other parties requested an administrative 
review of the order. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review in its entirety.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of brass 
sheet and strip from Japan. Antidumping duties shall be assessed at 
rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties 
required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for

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 presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under an APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely 
written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or 
conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure
