Cash Deposit Requirements DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Because there has been a subsequent administrative review for Wuxi, the cash deposit rate for Wuxi will remain the rate established in the final results of the 2012 administrative review, which is 59.29 percent.11 Because there have been no subsequent administrative reviews for Changbao, TPCO, and Jianli, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to set the cash deposit rates for these companies to the rates listed above, again, pending a final and conclusive court decision.12 Pursuant to section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act, companies not individually investigated are assigned an ‘‘all-others’’ countervailable duty rate. As a general rule, the all-others rate is equal to the weighted average countervailable subsidy rates established for individually investigated producers and producers, excluding any zero and de minimis countervailable subsidy rates.13 The Department will instruct CBP that the ‘‘all-others’’ cash deposit rate is to be amended to reflect the weightedaverage of the revised subsidy rates calculated for Changbao, TPCO, Wuxi, and Jianli, as listed above.
