DOTP that has been blended with other products is included within this scope when such blends include constituent parts that have not been chemically reacted with each other to produce a different product. For such blends, only the DOTP component of the mixture is covered by the scope of this investigation. DOTP that is otherwise subject to this investigation is not excluded when commingled with DOTP from sources not subject to this investigation. Commingled refers to the mixing of subject and nonsubject DOTP. Only the subject component of such commingled products is covered by the scope of the investigation. DOTP has the general chemical formulation C6H4(C8H17COO)2 and a chemical name of ‘‘bis (2-ethylhexyl) terephthalate’’ and has a Chemical Abstract Service (‘‘CAS’’) registry number of 6422–86– 2. Regardless of the label, all DOTP is covered by this investigation. Subject merchandise is currently classified under subheading 2917.39.2000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Subject merchandise may also enter under subheadings 2917.39.7000 or 3812.20.1000 of the HTSUS.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall

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

    If SIW's weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis in the

assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
antidumping duties calculated for the importer's examined sales and the 
total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). If SIW's weighted-average dumping margin continues to be 
zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP 
to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from

which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for merchandise 
exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this 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 
recently-completed segment; (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 recently-completed period for the manufacturer of the 
merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or 
exporters will continue to be 12.91 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\10\ These cash

further notice.

their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate
