Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce preliminarily determined that Weitron had no shipments of subject merchandise, during the POR.4 As we have not received any information that undermines our preliminary findings, we determine that Weitron had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, and we intend to issue appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that are consistent with our ‘‘automatic assessment’’ clarification for these final results of review. Assessment Commerce determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b). Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review. Additionally, consistent with Commerce’s refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy cases, for Weitron, the exporter under review, which we determined had no shipments of the subject merchandise during the POR, any suspended entries of subject merchandise from Weitron will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.5 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters who are not under review in this segment of the proceeding but who have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate 4 See Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 27752, 27753. a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 5 For E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 204 / Tuesday, October 22, 2019 / Notices published for the most recent period; (2) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate (i.e., including Weitron, which did not demonstrate that it was entitled to a separate rate in the most recentlycompleted administrative review), the cash deposit rate will be the China-wide rate of 216.37 percent; 6 and (3) for all non-Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to Chinese exporter(s) that supplied that nonChinese exporter.

to rescind the review for Weitron) is listed in the Appendix to this

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce preliminarily determined that 
Weitron had no shipments of subject merchandise, during the POR.\4\ As 
we have not received any information that undermines our preliminary 
findings, we determine that Weitron had no shipments of subject 
merchandise during the POR, and we intend to issue appropriate 
instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that are 
consistent with our ``automatic assessment'' clarification for these 
final results of review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 27752, 27753.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment

    Commerce determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.212(b). Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
review.
    Additionally, consistent with Commerce's refinement to its 
assessment practice in non-market economy cases, for Weitron, the 
exporter under review, which we determined had no shipments of the 
subject merchandise during the POR, any suspended entries of subject 
merchandise from Weitron will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously 
investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters who are not 
under review in this segment of the proceeding but who have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific 
rate

[[Page 56417]]

published for the most recent period; (2) for all Chinese exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate (i.e., including Weitron, which did not demonstrate that 
it was entitled to a separate rate in the most recently-completed 
administrative review), the cash deposit rate will be the China-wide 
rate of 216.37 percent; \6\ and (3) for all non-Chinese exporters of 
subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate applicable to Chinese exporter(s) that 
supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

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.

Notifications to Interested Parties

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under
