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.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine and CBP shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. If a respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is not zero 
or

[[Page 22452]]

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 assessment 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.

and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping 
Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

    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shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 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 manufacturer 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).

    Dated: May 10, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
