Assessment Rates

    We have calculated no assessment rates in this administrative 
review. Pursuant to Commerce's assessment practice, because we have 
determined that GVN had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any 
suspended entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., 
at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the all-others rate. 
Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 
days after the publication of these final results.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    As a result of this administrative review, there are no changes to 
the existing cash deposit requirements, which shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

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 POR. 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.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely 
written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to
