in this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Because the 
Nacobre calculations did not change, there is nothing to disclose.

duties on all appropriate entries.
    Pursuant to the Final Modification for Reviews,\7\ because the 
weighted-average dumping margins for Golden Dragon and Nacobre are 
zero, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.\8\

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of these final results for all shipments of 
seamless refined copper pipe and tube from Mexico entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date as 
provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates 
for Golden Dragon and Nacobre will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margins established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not 
covered in this review but covered in a completed prior segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment; (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

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO)

is a violation subject to sanction.
