Bhansali reported the name of the importer of record and the entered value for some of its sales to the United States during the POR. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), for these sales, if Bhansali’s weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate importerspecific assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those sales. Where Bhansali did not report entered value, we will calculate importerspecific assessment rates for the merchandise in question by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer and dividing this amount by the total quantity of those sales. 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 Bhansali for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

These cash deposit 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)(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 intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the 
issues raised in any written briefs, within 120 days after the date of 
publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will 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).\8\ The Department 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after publication of the final results of review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For Bhansali, 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 consumption, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i).
    Bhansali reported the name of the importer of record and the 
entered value for some of its sales to the United States during the 
POR. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), for these sales, if Bhansali's 
weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 
percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate 
importer-specific assessment rates based on the ratio of the total 
amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the 
total entered value of those sales. Where Bhansali did not report 
entered value, we will calculate importer-specific assessment rates for 
the merchandise in question by aggregating the dumping margins 
calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer and dividing this amount 
by the total quantity of those sales.
    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 Bhansali for which it did not 
know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

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 SSB from India 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 Bhansali 
will be the rate established in the final results of this 
administrative review; (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 recently 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 the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 12.45 percent, the all-others rate established in Notice 
of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Stainless 
Steel Bar from India, 59 FR 66915, 66921 (December 28, 1994). These 
cash deposit 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)(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.
