---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of the review, the Department shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends 
to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of review.
    For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis, we will calculate importer-specific 
ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount 
of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total 
entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\7\ 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 above de minimis. Where either the respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis, 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation methodology 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of PET Film from the UAE entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the companies 
under review will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will 
be required); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
listed above, 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 less-than-
fair-value 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 4.05 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the investigation.\8\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.
