analysis of all issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of 
publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, 
pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\14\ 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, where applicable.\15\ We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 
days after the publication date of the final results of this review.

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shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for voestalpine will 
be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the 
final results of this administrative review, except if the rate is zero 
or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case 
the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or 
investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding in which they were 
reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
prior review, or in the investigation but the producer is, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be the all-others rate of 28.57 percent from 
the investigation. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a 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 this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and sections 19 CFR 
351.213(h)(1) and 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: June 10, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
