Disclosure and Public Comment

    We intend to disclose the calculations and analysis performed in

    Because Commerce intends to conduct verification of Ambica, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c), interested parties may submit case 
briefs not later than seven days after the date on which the 
verification report is issued in this proceeding,\5\ and rebuttal 
briefs, limited to issues raised in case briefs, may be submitted no 
later than five days after the deadline date for case briefs.\6\ 
Parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding 
are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the

Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) and (2).

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results in this administrative review, 
Commerce shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by 
this POR. If a respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is above de 
minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of these reviews, we 
will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer's 
examined sales and, where possible, the total entered value of sales. 
Specifically, Commerce will apply the assessment rate calculation 
method adopted in Final Modification for Reviews.\9\ Where an importer- 
(or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their 
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 double 
antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    Commerce is issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: February 26, 2020.
