Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department shall 
determine, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate importer- or customer-
specific ad valorem assessment rates for the merchandise based on the 
ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the 
examined sales made during the period of review to the total customs 
value of the sales used to calculate those duties in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific ad valorem assessment 
rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). If the respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will 
instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance 
with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., ``{w{time} here the 
weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be 
zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.'' \11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Filmag will be 
that established in the final results of this administrative review; 
(2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the 
most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
review, a prior review, or in the investigation but the manufacturer 
is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recent review period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be the all-others rate of 26.59 percent, the rate 
established in the investigation of this proceeding.\12\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until
