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

Disclosure

    Normally, the Department discloses to interested parties the 
calculations performed for the final results within five days of the 
publication of this notice, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). 
However, because we made no changes to these margins since the 
Preliminary Results, no disclosure of calculations is necessary for 
these final results.

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department has determined, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of the final results of this 
administrative review in the Federal Register.
    Consistent with the Department's assessment practice in non-market 
economy (NME) cases, for entries that were not reported in U.S. sales 
databases submitted by companies individually examined during the 
administrative review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate 
such entries at the Vietnam-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department 
determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of subject 
merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under the exporter's 
case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the 
Vietnam-wide rate.\2\

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Truong Vinh, 
Rich State, and Dicha Sombrilla, the cash deposit rate will be equal to 
the weighted-average dumping margin listed above; (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed Vietnamese and non-Vietnamese 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 exporter-
specific rate published for the most-recently completed segment of this 
proceeding in which the exporter was reviewed; (3) for all Vietnamese 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that 
established for the Vietnam-wide entity, which is 323.99 percent; \3\ 
and (4) for all non-Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise which 
have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the 
rate applicable to the Vietnamese exporter that supplied that non-
Vietnamese exporter with the subject merchandise. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern 
business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 
Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO 
materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
