shipper review with respect to Jianglong.\4\

these preliminary results due to the preliminary decision that 
Jianglong is not eligible for a new shipper review. See Preliminary

    Effective upon publication of the final rescission or the final 
results of this new shipper review, we will instruct CBP to discontinue 
the option of posting a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for 
entries of subject merchandise by Jianglong. If we proceed to a final

results of the new shipper review, we will instruct CBP to collect cash 
deposits, effective upon the publication of the final results, at the

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 double antidumping duties.
    This new shipper review and notice are in accordance with sections 
751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(f).
