SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Rmajette on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is SSB. The term SSB with respect to the order means articles of stainless steel in straight lengths that have been either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, cold-rolled or otherwise cold-finished, or ground, having a uniform solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles, hexagons, octagons or other convex polygons. SSB includes coldfinished SSBs that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether produced from hot-rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, and reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other deformations produced during the rolling process. Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless steel semi-finished products, cut-length flat-rolled products (i.e., cutlength rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, shapes and sections. The SSB subject to the order is currently classifiable under subheadings 7222.10.00, 7222.11.00, 7222.19.00, 7222.20.00, 7222.30.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Background We received a timely submission from Gerdau reporting that it did not have sales, shipments, or entries of the subject merchandise during the POR.2 In addition, in response to the Department’s query, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) did not provide any evidence that contradicted Gerdau’s claim of no shipments.3 We received no comments from interested parties concerning the results of our query with the CBP. Therefore, based on Gerdau’s certification and our analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily determined that Gerdau did not have any reviewable entries during the POR.4 We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results.5 None were received. The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Final Determination of No Shipments As explained above, in the Preliminary Results, we found that Gerdau did not have reviewable entries during the POR.6 Also in the Preliminary Results, we stated that consistent with our recently announced refinement to our assessment practice, it is not appropriate to rescind the review with respect to Gerdau but, rather, to complete the review with respect to Gerdau and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.7 After issuing the Preliminary Results, we received no comments from interested parties, nor have we received any information that would cause us to revisit our preliminary determination. Therefore, for these final results, we continue to find that Gerdau did not have any reviewable entries during the POR. Assessment We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice of final results of the administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Gerdau remains unchanged from the rate assigned to the company in the most recently completed review of the company; (2) for other manufacturers and exporters covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate continues to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which that manufacturer or exporter participated; (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 is the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters continues to be 25.77 percent, the all-others rate established in the investigation.10 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers We determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with these final results of review.8 Consistent with the Department’s refinement to its assessment practice, because we determined that Gerdau had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Gerdau for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, 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.9 3 See 12799 Preliminary Results, 79 FR at 68663. 4 Id. 5 Id. 6 Id. 7 Id. 8 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). a full discussion, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment Policy Notice).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is SSB. The term SSB with 
respect to the order means articles of stainless steel in straight 
lengths that have been either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, 
cold-rolled or otherwise cold-finished, or ground, having a uniform 
solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, 
segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles, 
hexagons, octagons or other convex polygons. SSB includes cold-finished 
SSBs that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether produced 
from hot-rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, and 
reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other 
deformations produced during the rolling process. Except as specified 
above, the term does not include stainless steel semi-finished 
products, cut-length flat-rolled products (i.e., cut-length rolled 
products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring 
at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness 
having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the 
thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, of any uniform 
solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to 
the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, shapes and 
sections.
    The SSB subject to the order is currently classifiable under 
subheadings 7222.10.00, 7222.11.00, 7222.19.00, 7222.20.00, 7222.30.00 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).
    Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and 
customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is 
dispositive.

Background

    We received a timely submission from Gerdau reporting that it did 
not have sales, shipments, or entries of the subject merchandise during 
the POR.\2\ In addition, in response to the Department's query, U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) did not provide any evidence that 
contradicted Gerdau's claim of no shipments.\3\ We received no comments 
from interested parties concerning the results of our query with the 
CBP. Therefore, based on Gerdau's certification and our analysis of CBP 
information, we preliminarily determined that Gerdau did not have any 
reviewable entries during the POR.\4\

amended (the Act).

Final Determination of No Shipments

    As explained above, in the Preliminary Results, we found that 
Gerdau did not have reviewable entries during the POR.\6\ Also in the 
Preliminary Results, we stated that consistent with our recently 
announced refinement to our assessment practice, it is not appropriate 
to rescind the review with respect to Gerdau but, rather, to complete 
the review with respect to Gerdau and issue appropriate instructions to 
CBP based on the final results of this review.\7\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After issuing the Preliminary Results, we received no comments from 
interested parties, nor have we received any information that would 
cause us to revisit our preliminary determination. Therefore, for these 
final results, we continue to find that Gerdau did not have any 
reviewable entries during the POR.

Assessment

    We determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with these 
final results of review.\8\ Consistent with the Department's refinement 
to its assessment practice, because we determined that Gerdau had no 
shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, for entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Gerdau for which it did not know 
that the merchandise was destined for the United States, 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.\9\

Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this 
notice of final results of the administrative review, as provided by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Gerdau 
remains unchanged from the rate assigned to the company in the most 
recently completed review of the company; (2) for other manufacturers 
and exporters covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate continues to be the company-specific rate published for 
the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which that 
manufacturer or exporter participated; (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 is the 
rate established for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding for the manufacturer of subject merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters continues to 
be 25.77 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
investigation.\10\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    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 POR. 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 disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written
