the Preliminary Results. No interested parties submitted comments or a 
request for a hearing. Commerce conducted this review in accordance

Continuation of the Antidumping Duty Finding/Orders and 
Countervailing Duty Order, 80 FR 22708 (April 23, 2015).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    As no parties submitted comments on the margin calculation 
methodology used in the Preliminary Results, Commerce made no 
adjustments to that methodology in the final results of this review.

Final Results of the Review

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that SIW did not 
make sales of subject merchandise at less than NV during the POR. As we 
have not received any information to contradict our preliminary 
finding, we continue to determine in the final results that SIW did not 
make sales of subject merchandise at less than NV during the POR. 
Accordingly, Commerce determines that a weighted-average dumping margin 
of 0.00 percent exists for entries of subject merchandise that were 
produced and/or exported by SIW.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with these final results of administrative 
review. Because we calculated a zero margin for SIW in the final 
results of this review, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results of administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from Thailand entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 
date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash 
deposit rate for SIW will be equal to zero; (2) for previously 
investigated companies not covered in this review but covered in a 
completed prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the company was 
reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
previous review, or the original investigation, but the producer is, 
then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of 
subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers or exporters will continue to be 12.91 percent, the all-
others rate established in the investigation.\3\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final 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 Regarding 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 or 
destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective 
order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and 
terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
