Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c), interested parties may submit case 
briefs not later than 30 days after the date of publication of this 
notice. Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs, 
may be filed not later than five days after the date for filing case

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing must submit a written request to the Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, filed electronically via 
ACCESS. An electronically filed document must be received successfully

this notice. Requests should contain: (1) The party's name, address and

section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. If 
Navigator's weight-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis 
(i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will calculate an importer-specific 
ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rate based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to 
the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific 
assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not 
zero or de minimis. If Navigator's weighted-average dumping margin is 
zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this 
review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on 
entries of merchandise covered by this review where applicable.
    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Navigator 
for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for the 
United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 
days after the publication date of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Navigator will 
be the rate established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not 
covered in this administrative 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 of this 
proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
prior review, or the original investigation, but the producer is, the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 7.80 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the investigation.\4\ These cash deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

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 POR. Failure to comply with this

subsequent assessment of the antidumping duties by the amount of the 
antidumping duties reimbursement.
