Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to the final results of this review, Commerce determines, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    For the mandatory respondents (i.e., Bhandari Foils & Tubes, Ltd. 
(Bhandari) and Hindustan Inox, Ltd. (Hindustan)), as the weighted-
average dumping margins are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 
percent), we calculated importer-specific ad valorem AD assessment 
rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for 
the importers' examined sales to the total entered value of those same 
sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings. See Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin 
and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the weighted average of the 
cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for individual 
review (i.e., Bhandari and Hindustan).
    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
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 
entries not reviewed at the all-others rate of 8.35 percent if there is 
no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Welded Stainless Pressure Pipe From India: Antidumping 
Duty and Countervailing Duty Orders, 81 FR 81062 (November 17, 
2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this notice of final results of administrative review in 
the Federal Register for all shipments of WSPP from India entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash 
deposit rate for each company listed above will be equal to the dumping 
margins established in the final results of this 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 in 
which the producer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not 
a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-
than-fair-value investigation but the producer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed 
segment of the proceeding for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will 
continue to be 8.35 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
antidumping investigation.\7\ 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 and/or countervailing duties 
prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period.

presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping and/or countervailing 
duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping 
duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the 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/destruction 
of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
