If a request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230, at a time and date to be determined. Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date. Postponement of Final Determination and Extension of Provisional Measures Section 735(a)(2) of the Act provides that a final determination may be postponed until not later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an affirmative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by exporters who account for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a negative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by the petitioner. Section 351.210(e)(2) of Commerce’s regulations requires that a request by exporters for postponement of the final determination be accompanied by a request for extension of provisional measures from a four-month period to a period not more than six months in duration. On April 17, 2019, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.210(e), SNCZ requested that Commerce postpone the final determination and that provisional 7 See 19 CFR 351.309; see also 19 CFR 351.303 (for general filing requirements).

Accordingly, Commerce will make its final determination no later than 135 days after the date of publication of this preliminary determination. International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 733(f) of the Act, Commerce will notify the International Trade Commission (ITC) of its preliminary determination. If the final determination is affirmative, the ITC will determine before the later of 120 days after the date of this preliminary determination or 45 days after the final determination whether these imports are materially injuring, or threaten material injury to, the U.S. industry.9 Notification to Interested Parties This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 733(f) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(c).

Assessment Rate

    If a respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is above de 
minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate an 
importer-specific assessment rate based on the ratio of the total 
amount of dumping calculated for each importer's examined sales and the 
total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\10\ If a respondent's weighted-average dumping margin or 
an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final 
results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties in accordance with the Final Modification for 
Reviews.\11\ The final results of this administrative review shall be 
the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of 
merchandise under review and for future deposits of estimated duties, 
where applicable. We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 
days after publication of the final results of this review.

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).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements for estimated antidumping 
duties will be effective upon publication of the notice of final 
results of this review for all shipments of uncoated paper from Brazil 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) 
The cash deposit rate for companies subject to this review will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margins established in the final 
results of the review; (2) for merchandise exported by companies not 
covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of this 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
investigation but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the 
rate established for the most recently completed segment for the 
producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers or exporters will continue to be 27.11 percent, the all-
others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\12\

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 period of review. 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

    Commerce is issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

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