Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered 
by this review.
    For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), 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).\8\ We will instruct CBP 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 not zero or de minimis. If Shin Yang's 
weighted-average dumping margin 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 
this review where applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation methodology 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Shin Yang 
for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for the 
United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. 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 deposit requirements will be effective 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shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 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 the companies 
under review will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review (except, if the ad valorem rate is de minimis, then the cash 
deposit rate will be zero); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated 
companies not covered in this review, 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 company was 
reviewed; (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 of this proceeding for the producer of subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 9.70 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the investigation.\9\ These cash 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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    The preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: July 10, 2019.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
