dumping margins are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 
percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate 
importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for each importer's examined sales 
and the total entered value of those sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Where Ambica and Bhansali did not report entered value, 
we will calculate importer specific assessment rates for the 
merchandise in question by aggregating the dumping margins calculated 
for all U.S. sales to each importer and dividing this amount by the 
total quantity of those sales.
    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific 
assessment rate calculated in 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,\10\ 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.

    We intend to issue 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 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shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 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 Bhansali and 
Ambica will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review, except if the rate is de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(1) (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), in which case the cash 
deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated 
companies not participating in this review, 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 the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent 
period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash 
deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to 
be 12.45 percent, the all-others rate established in the less-than-
fair-value investigation.\11\ These requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

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 the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    The Department is issuing and publishing these results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 4, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
