Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results in this administrative review, 
Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the weighted-average dumping 
margin for Ghigi/Zara or Indalco is not zero or 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 on 
the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for each 
importer's examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\9\ 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 above de minimis. Where the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, 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. 
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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ In these preliminary results, we applied the 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the 
respondent for which it did not know that its merchandise was destined 
for the United States, 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.
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of pasta from Italy entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication of the final results of 
this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the 
Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for respondents noted above will be the 
rate established in the final results of this administrative review; 
(2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in 
this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the 
proceeding, 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, 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 the subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 15.45 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the antidumping investigation as modified by the section 
129 determination.\10\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: September 6, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
