Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage 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 intend to instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of its analysis raised in any written 
briefs, not later than 120 days after the publication date of this 
notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    If APRIL's weighted-average dumping margin remains zero or de 
minimis in the final results of this review, then we intend to instruct 
CBP to liquidate APRIL's entries without regard to antidumping duties. 
If APRIL's weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis in the 
final results of this review, then pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), 
because APRIL reported the entered value for all of its U.S. sales, we 
intend to calculate an importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment 
rate based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties 
calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those 
sales. 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 intend to instruct CBP 
to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties. We intend to instruct CBP to take into account the 
``provisional measures cap'' in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(d). In 
addition, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
APRIL for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the 
United States, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for

[[Page 15131]]

the intermediate company or companies involved in the transaction. The 
all-others rate is 2.10 percent.\14\

Final Affirmative Antidumping Determinations for Brazil and 
Indonesia and Antidumping Duty Orders, 81 FR 11174 (March 3, 2016) 
(Order).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective 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 APRIL will be 
that established in the final results of this review, except if the 
rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the 
meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate 
will be zero; (2) for previously investigated companies not 
participating in this review, the cash deposit will continue to be the 
company-specific rate published for the most recently completed 
segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or 
the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and 4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 2.10 percent, the all-others rate made effective by the 
LTFV investigation.\16\ 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) 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.
    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(h)(1).

    Dated: April 3, 2018.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
