Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce preliminarily determined that 
thirteen companies had no shipments during the POR.\5\ Following 
publication of the Preliminary Results, we received no comments from 
interested parties regarding these companies. As a result, and because 
the record contains no evidence to the contrary, we continue to find 
that these thirteen companies made no shipments during the POR. 
Consistent with our practice, we will issue appropriate instructions to 
CBP based on our final results.

    \6\ In the 2014-2016 administrative review of the order, 
Commerce collapsed Sino-American Silicon Products Inc. and Solartech 
Energy Corp., and treated the companies as a single entity for 
purposes of the proceeding. See Certain Crystalline Silicon 
Photovoltaic Products from Taiwan: Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review; 2014-2016, 82 FR 31555 (July 7, 2017).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), 
Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the 
final results of this review.
    We intend to calculate importer- (or customer-) specific assessment 
rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping 
duties calculated for each importer's (or customer's) examined sales 
and the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Where an importer- (or customer-) specific rate is zero 
or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the average of the cash deposit 
rates calculated for Motech Industries, Inc. and SAS-SEC. 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.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each 
respondent for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for 
the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at 
the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company or 
companies involved in the transaction.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after

publication of the final results of this administrative 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 publication date of these final 
results, as provided 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 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 the cash deposit rate will be 19.50 percent ad valorem, the all-
others rate established in the less than fair value investigation.\8\ 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

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.

Notification Regarding 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).

    Dated: August 5, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
