Download as PDF 55336 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 178 / Tuesday, September 15, 2015 / Notices and, therefore, no reviewable transactions, during the POR.4 No party commented on our preliminary results with respect to Samsung, and no additional information has been placed on the record to call into question those preliminary results. Accordingly, for the final results of this review, we continue to find that Samsung made no shipments of the subject merchandise during the POR. Final Results of the Review Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made changes to the weighted-average dumping margin calculation for Electrolux. Therefore, we are assigning the following weightedaverage dumping margins for the period August 3, 2012, through January 31, 2014: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Manufacturer/exporter Electrolux Home Products Corp. NV/Electrolux Home Products de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. ......... 6.45 Disclosure and Public Comment We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department has determined, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this administrative review. For Electrolux, the Department calculated ad valorem importer-specific assessment rates equal to the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of those sales. Where an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate these entries without regard to antidumping duties pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on 4 See Preliminary Results, 80 FR at 12347. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:04 Sep 14, 2015 Jkt 235001 May 6, 2003.5 If applicable, this clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Electrolux or Samsung, for which the company did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate these entries at the all-others rate established in the less-than fair-value (LTFV) investigation, 36.52 percent,6 if there is no rate for the intermediary involved in the transaction. See Assessment Policy Notice for a full discussion of this clarification. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Electrolux will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recentlycompleted segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recentlycompleted segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 36.52 percent, the all-others rate determined in the LTFV investigation.7 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period.
