Vietnam-Wide Entity

    The Vietnam-wide entity will not be under review unless a party 
specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of 
the entity.\10\ Because no party requested a review of the Vietnam-wide 
entity in this review, nor did the Department self-initiate a review of 
the Vietnam-wide entity, the entity is not under review and the 
entity's rate (i.e., 323.99 percent) is not subject to change. In this 
administrative review, a review was requested for Truong Vinh, Rich 
State, and Dicha Sombrilla, but none of these companies filed a 
separate rate application, separate rate certification, or no-shipment 
letter. Accordingly, the Department considers Truong Vinh, Rich State, 
and Dicha Sombrilla to be part of the Vietnam-wide entity.

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For a 
full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

    \15\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c)
    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Unless extended, the Department intends to issue the final results 
of this administrative review, which will include the results of our 
analysis of all issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of 
publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, 
pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\17\ The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the publication date of the final results of this review. We will 
instruct CBP to assess duties at the ad valorem margin rates published 
above. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review if any assessment rate 
calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. 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. The Department will assess duties only on entries of 
subject merchandise (i.e., Vietnam-origin steel nails).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 Vietnam entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse,

[[Page 26052]]

for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Truong Vinh, Rich State, and 
Dicha Sombrilla, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the 
final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de 
minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed Vietnam 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 published for the most recently completed period; (3) for all 
Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the NME-wide 
rate of 323.99 percent; and (4) for all non-Vietnam exporters of 
subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnam exporter that 
supplied that non-Vietnam exporter. These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: May 24, 2017.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
