Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.
    If the weighted-average dumping margin for YP/Synn, Prosperity, and 
SYSCO is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will 
calculate importer-specific ad valorem AD assessment rates based on the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importers 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\5\ 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 (i.e., 0.5 percent). Where 
either 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 where 
applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation method 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 each 
respondent for which they did not know that their merchandise was 
destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
entries not reviewed at the all-others rate of 3.66 percent \6\ if 
there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.\7\ We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, 
a prior review, or the original less-than-fair-value investigation but

Notification to Importers

    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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    These preliminary results of review is are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR
