Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the following weighted-average dumping margin for the period August 1, 2017 through July 31, 2018: Exporter/producer Estimated weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Euro SME Sbn Bhd .................... 0.00 Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the 
following weighted-average dumping margin for the period August 1, 2017 
through July 31, 2018:

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.
    For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem 
duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of 
antidumping duties 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).\5\ We intend to 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 a respondent's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 
CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, 
we intend to 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ 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 our practice, for entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR for which a respondent did not know that the merchandise 
was destined for the United States, we intend to instruct CBP to 
liquidate such entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for 
the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. 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.\6\

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 each specific 
company listed above will be that established in the final results of 
this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, 
therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in 
which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously 
investigated companies not participating 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 participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
review, a prior review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 84.94 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
LTFV investigation.\7\ These 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.
    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: October 9, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
