For a complete discussion of these allegations, see the Department’s Ministerial Errors Memorandum.6 In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results.7 The revised weighted-average dumping margin is detailed below. Amended Final Results As a result of correcting for these ministerial errors, we determine the following margin exists for the period October 1, 2012, through September 30, 2013.

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 41 days after the date of publication of these amended final results of review. For assessment purposes, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). We calculated such rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the sales for which entered value was reported. If an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) or the exporter has a weightedaverage dumping margin that is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to assess that importer’s entries of subject merchandise without 6 See ‘‘2012–2013 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Order on Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Mexico: Ministerial Error Allegations for Final Results’’ dated concurrently with this notice (‘‘Ministerial Errors Memorandum’’). 7 Id.

For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by a respondent for which it did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States, 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 a full discussion of this assessment practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of amended final results of administrative review for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the amended final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Deacero will be the rate established in the amended 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 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 20.11 percent, the all-others rate established in the investigation.8 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final 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 increase in antidumping duties by the 8 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Moldova, Trinidad and Tobago, and Ukraine, 67 FR 65945 (October 29, 2002).

Preliminary Rescission of Jingmei New Shipper Review

    For the reasons detailed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, 
the Department preliminarily finds that, as a result of Jingmei's 
customers' failure to provide necessary information, we cannot 
determine whether Jingmei's sales under review are bona fide, and, 
therefore, whether they provide a reasonable or reliable basis for 
calculating a dumping margin. As result, the Department is 
preliminarily rescinding the new shipper review of Jingmei.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department will disclose the analysis performed for these 
preliminary results to the parties within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

issues raised in any such comments, within 90 days of publication of 
these preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the 
Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the final results, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.212(b), the Department will determine, and the U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries. If we proceed to a final rescission of the new 
shipper review, Jingmei's entries will be assessed at the rate 
entered.\10\ If we do not proceed to a final rescission of the new 
shipper review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we will calculate 
importer-specific assessment rates. We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if

rescission of the new shipper review, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the PRC-wide rate. If we issue final results of the new 
shipper review for Jingmei, we will instruct CBP to collect cash 
deposits, effective upon the publication of the final results, at the 
rates established therein.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 Department'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)(2)(B) and 777(i)(l) of the Act, and 19 
CFR 351.214 and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: June 20, 2016.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
