Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results of review, the Department will 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\9\ The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of 
review. In particular, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries 
of subject merchandise exported by Rongxin during the POR, at the 
current rate for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 114.90 percent).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended, (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 cash deposits of 
estimated antidumping duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above 
that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-
specific rate; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that 
have not established their eligibility for a separate rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity (i.e.,114.90 
percent); and (3) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise 
which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non-PRC

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.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which
