Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce shall determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with the final results of this review.\6\ Commerce intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the 
date of publication of these final results of review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation method 
adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For JBF, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty 
assessment rates 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 continue 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 above 
de minimis. Where an importer-specific assessment rate 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 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, were applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date of these final 
results, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For JBF, 
the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-average dumping 
margin listed above in the ``Final Results of Review'' section; (2) for 
merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this 
review but covered in a previously completed segment of this 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published in the final results for the most recent period 
in which that producer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review or in any previous segment of this 
proceeding, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be 
that established for the producer of the merchandise in these final 
results of review or in the final results for the most recent period in 
which that producer participated; and

(4) if neither the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this 
review or in any previously completed segment of this proceeding, then

Disclosure

    We will disclose to interested parties the calculations performed 
in connection with these final results within five days of the 
publication of this notice, consistent with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

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 duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice is the only reminder to parties subject to the 
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 or 
destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective 
order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and 
the terms of an APO is a violation subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these final results and this notice 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.213(h).
