Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the margin calculations performed in this 
proceeding within five days of the date of publication of this notice, 
in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), and 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Commerce shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\5\ 
Because the

[[Page 56418]]

weighted-average dumping margin of the sole respondent covered by this 
administrative review is zero, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
entries covered by this review period without regard to antidumping 
duties. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 
days after the publication date of the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ In these final 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).

    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shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from

751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Filmag will be 
that established in the final results of this administrative review; 
(2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the

continue to be the all-others rate of 26.59 percent, the rate

Value: Stainless Steel Butt-Weld Pipe Fittings from Italy, 65 FR 
81830, 81831 (December 27, 2000).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final 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 the period of review. 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.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction 
of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.
