Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are all gauges of raw, pre-
treated, or primed PET film, whether extruded or co-extruded. Excluded 
are metallized films and other finished films that have had at least 
one of their surfaces modified by the application of a performance-
enhancing resinous or inorganic layer more than 0.00001 inches thick. 
Also excluded is roller transport cleaning film which has at least one 
of its surfaces modified by application of 0.5 micrometers of SBR 
latex. Tracing and drafting film is also excluded. PET film is 
classifiable under subheading 3920.62.00.90 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). While HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description 
of the scope of the order is dispositive.

Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a no-shipment 
claim from Terphane, and we confirmed this claim with U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP). Because no party commented on our preliminary 
results, we continue to find that the record indicates that Terphane 
did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR 
and that it had no reviewable transactions during the POR.

Assessment

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 356.8(a), the Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
these final results of review. On May 6, 2003, the Department clarified 
its ``automatic assessment'' regulation.\3\ This clarification will 
apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the 
reviewed company did not know its merchandise was destined for the 
United States. In such instances, 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 any entries 
by Terphane, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties in 
accordance with the reseller policy.

Cash Deposit Requirements

liquidation of entries of PET film from Brazil has been lifted, we do 
not intend to issue cash deposit instructions.\4\

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

with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that

assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility
