Disclosure and Public Comment

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days after public announcement of the 
preliminary results in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). 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 briefs.\5\ Parties

    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 
in its entirety by Commerce's electronic records system, ACCESS, by

of its analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later 
than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, unless 
extended, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If a respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less 
than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, we will 
calculate importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates on the basis of 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for an importer's 
examined sales and the total entered value of such sales in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where either the respondent's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 
CFR 351.106(c), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard 
to antidumping duties.
    Commerce clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on May 
6, 2003.\7\ This clarification applies to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by a respondent for which it did 
not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping 
Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment Policy Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the companies 
under review will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this review (except, if that rate 
is de minimis, then the cash deposit rate will be zero); (2) for 
previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above in the 
Preliminary Results of Review, including those for which Commerce may 
determine had no shipments during the POR, 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 or another completed segment of this 
proceeding, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the 
rate established for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither 
the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any 
previously completed segment of this proceeding, then the cash deposit 
rate will be the ``all-others'' rate of 15.67 percent established in 
the less-than-fair-value investigation.\8\ These deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.213(h) and 351.221(b)(4).
