If the weighted-average dumping margin for Ghigi/Zara or Indalco is above de minimis (i.e., more than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate importerspecific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for each importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).8 If the weighted-average dumping margin for Ghigi/Zara or Indalco is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of their entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.9 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent for which they did not know that their merchandise was destined for the United States, 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. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. 8 In these preliminary results, we applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews). 9 See Final Modification for Reviews, 77 FR at 8102.

Preliminary Results of the Review

dumping margin of 5.97 percent for Ghigi/Zara and a de minimis margin 
for Indalco for the period July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, we

results, as referenced below.

including the results of our analysis of the issues raised in any 
written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication

Assessment Rate

    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 the 
weighted-average dumping margin for Ghigi/Zara or Indalco is above de 
minimis (i.e., more than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this 
review, we will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the 
basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated 
for each importer's examined sales and the total entered value of sales 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\8\ If the weighted-average 
dumping margin for Ghigi/Zara or Indalco is zero or de minimis in the 
final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on 
any of their entries in accordance with the Final Modification for 
Reviews.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ In these preliminary results, we applied the assessment rate 
calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation 
of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in 
Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 
(February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).
    \9\ See Final Modification for Reviews, 77 FR at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each 
respondent for which they did not know that their merchandise was 
destined for the United States, 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.
    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 upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of pasta from Italy entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication of the final results of
