If MEM’s weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We intend to instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review where the importerspecific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. If MEM’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.5 In accordance with Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by MEM where MEM 5 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.

The exemptions would allow 20 participating commercial fishing vessels to exceed the crew size regulations at 50 CFR 648.51(c) to place a researcher on the vessel and temporarily exempt the participating vessels from possession limits and minimum size requirements specified in 50 CFR part 648, subparts B and D through O, for biological sampling purposes. Any fishing activity conducted outside the scope of the exempted fishing activity would be prohibited, including landing fish in excess of a possession limit or below the minimum size. Experimental fishing activity would test a one-way extended link dredge gear modification to reduce flatfish bycatch and catch of pre-recruit scallops in the scallop dredge fishery. Any modification would comply with existing scallop gear regulations. All trips would take place in scallop open access areas of southern New England and scallop fishing areas open to scallop RSA compensation fishing. The exemption from crew size limits is needed because a research technician would accompany vessels on the compensation fishing trips to collect catch data associated with the dredge modifications. The crew size exemption would be for approximately 120 days-atsea and must be used in conjunction with a valid compensation fishing letter of authorization. The technician would only engage in data collection activities and would not process catch to be landed for sale. Exemption from possession limit and minimum sizes would support catch sampling activities and ensure the vessel is not in conflict with possession regulations while collecting catch data. All catch above a possession limit or below a minimum size would be discarded as soon as possible following data collection. The proposed gear modifications are not expected to increase catch above typical commercial fishing practices and gears. All research trips would otherwise be consistent with normal commercial fishing activity and catch would be retained for sale. If approved, the applicant may request minor modifications and extensions to the EFP throughout the year. EFP modifications and extensions may be granted without further notice if PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 they are deemed essential to facilitate completion of the proposed research and have minimal impacts that do not change the scope or impact of the initially approved EFP request.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If MEM's weighted-
average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 
percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate 
importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We intend to instruct CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review where the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the 
final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. If MEM's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where 
applicable.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by MEM where 
MEM did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United 
States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those entries at the all-
others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
finals results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for MEM will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final 
results of this administrative review; (2) for previously reviewed or 
investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rates published 
for the most recently-completed segment of this proceeding in which 
they were reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered by this 
review, a prior 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 
the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 4.30 percent,\7\ the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing must submit a written request to the Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, filed electronically via 
ACCESS. An electronically filed document must be received successfully 
in its entirety by Commerce's electronic records system, ACCESS, by 
5:00 p.m. Eastern Time within 30 days after the date of publication of 
this notice. Requests should contain: (1) The party's name, address, 
and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of 
issues to be discussed. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to 
those raised in the respective case and rebuttal briefs. Unless 
otherwise extended, Commerce intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the 
issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the 
date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a 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 doubled 
antidumping duties.
