    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. If the 
weighted-average dumping margin for La Molisana or the Rummo Group is 
not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will calculate 
importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review 
when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in

[[Page 47469]]

the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. Where 
either the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de 
minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, 
we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this review shall be 
the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of 
merchandise covered by the final results of this review where 
applicable.
    In accordance with the Department's ``automatic assessment'' 
practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
each respondent for which they did not know that their merchandise was 
destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
unreviewed 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).
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

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 increase the 
subsequent assessment of the antidumping duties by the amount of 
antidumping duties reimbursed.
    These preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 31, 2015.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
