    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, must submit a written request to the Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, filed electronically via 
ACCESS. An electronically filed document must be received successfully 
in its entirety by Commerce's electronic records system, ACCESS, by 5 
p.m. Eastern Time within 30 days after the date of publication of this 
notice. Requests should contain: (1) The party's name, address and 
telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of 
issues to be discussed. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to 
those raised in the respective case briefs. Commerce intends to issue 
the final results of this administrative review, including the results 
of its analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later 
than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, unless 
extended, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

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). If the weighted-average dumping 
margin for Nan Ya is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 
percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate the 
importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates on the basis of 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).
    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.

[[Page 48114]]

    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 publication of the final results of 
this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of PET film from Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the company 
under review will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will 
be required); (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 recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-than-
fair-value investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters is 2.40 percent.\13\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also 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 review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    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.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
