    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce determined, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping

appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of

Notification to Importers

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate

with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that

assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written

comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable
