Final Results of the Review

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we determine that 
that Baoding Mantong, Kumar, Nutracare, Ravi, and Rudraa did not have 
reviewable transactions of subject merchandise during the POR.

[[Page 72568]]

Duty Assessment

    The Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. We intend to issue assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 
days after publication of the final results of this review. Given that 
the Department continues to determine that the exporters under review 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under the exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate, in accordance with our 
practice.\11\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this notice for all shipments of subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
publication of these final results, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) 
of the Act: (1) For Baoding Mantong, Nutracare International, Ravi 
Industries, Kumar Industries, and Rudraa International, which all 
claimed no shipments, the cash deposit rate will remain unchanged from 
rates assigned to these companies in the most recently completed 
reviews of these companies; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed 
PRC and non-PRC exporters who are not under review in this segment of 
the proceeding but who have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the PRC-wide rate of 453.79 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC

rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter(s) that supplied the non-PRC exporter. These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during the POR. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which
