the period July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014.

the Act.

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. If EuroChem's weighted-
average dumping margin is above de minimis in the final results of this 
review, we will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the 
basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated 
for each importer's examined sales and the total entered value of such 
sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If EuroChem's weighted-
average dumping margin continues to be zero or de minimis in the final 
results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of 
its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, 
i.e., ``{w{time} here the weighted-average margin of dumping for the 
exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties 
will be assessed.'' \6\

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\7\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by EuroChem 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 of 64.93 percent \8\ if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

the final results of this review.

publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of solid urea from Russia entered, or withdrawn from 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

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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.
