Generally, the Department looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the allothers rate in an investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for non-selected respondents that are not examined individually in an administrative review. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act states that the allothers rate should be calculated by averaging the weighted-average dumping margins for individuallyexamined respondents, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available. Section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act provides that, where all rates are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available, the Department may use ‘‘any reasonable method’’ for assigning a rate to nonexamined respondents. For these preliminary results, we calculated a zero margin for Roung Shu. Therefore, we preliminarily determine that, consistent with section 735(c)(5)(B), we will assign A-Madeus Textile Ltd. (A-Madeus), the respondent not selected for individual examination, the most recent above de minimis margin calculated for a mandatory respondent, which is from the previous administrative review. As discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, this is consistent with the Department’s practice and the documented history of dumping in this case since the imposition of the order. Using this method, we are preliminarily assigning a margin of 30.64 percent to A-Madeus for these preliminary results.2 Preliminary Results of the Review The Department preliminarily determines that the following weightedaverage dumping margins exist: Producer/exporter Roung Shu Industry Corporation (Roung Shu) .......

Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Narrow Woven 
Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from Taiwan,'' from Gary Taverman, 
Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance (Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price 
is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. NV is 
calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. A list of the 
topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as 
an Appendix to this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a 
public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at

building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://trade.gov/enforcement. 
The signed and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies

    The statute and the Department's regulations do not address what 
rate to apply to respondents not selected for individual examination 
when the Department limits its examination in an administrative review 
pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, the Department 
looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for 
calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when 
calculating the rate for non-selected respondents that are not examined 
individually in an administrative review. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the 
Act states that the all-others rate should be calculated by averaging 
the weighted-average dumping margins for individually-examined 
respondents, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based 
entirely on facts available. Section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act provides 
that, where all rates are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts 
available, the Department may use ``any reasonable method'' for 
assigning a rate to non-examined respondents.
    For these preliminary results, we calculated a zero margin for 
Roung Shu. Therefore, we preliminarily determine that, consistent with 
section 735(c)(5)(B), we will assign A-Madeus Textile Ltd. (A-Madeus), 
the respondent not selected for individual examination, the most recent 
above de minimis margin calculated for a mandatory respondent, which is 
from the previous administrative review. As discussed in the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum, this is consistent with the 
Department's practice and the documented history of dumping in this 
case since the imposition of the order. Using this method, we are 
preliminarily assigning a margin of 30.64 percent to A-Madeus for these 
preliminary results.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ This margin is from the 2012-2013 administrative review. See 
Narrow Woven Ribbons With Woven Selvedge From Taiwan; Final Results

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the 
issues raised in any written briefs, no later than 120 days after the 
date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), unless this deadline is extended.

Assessment Rates

    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.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific 
assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above 
de minimis. Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific rate is zero or 
de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties. For the company which was not 
selected for individual review (i.e., A-Madeus), we will assign an 
assessment rate based on the methodology described in the ``Rate for 
Non-Selected Companies'' section, above. 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 and 
for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

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 each specific company listed above will be equal to the dumping 
margins established in the final results of this administrative review, 
unless the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash 
deposit rate will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by 
manufacturers or exporters not covered in this 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 recently completed 
segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or 
the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed 
segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash 
deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to 
be 4.37 percent, the all-others rate determined in the less-than-fair-
value investigation.\11\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, 
shall remain in effect until further notice.
