Accordingly, where appropriate, the relevant bullet in the certification should be edited to reflect that the certification was completed within the time frame specified above. For example, the bullet in the importer certification that reads: ‘‘This certification was completed at or prior to the time of Entry Summary,’’ could be edited as follows: ‘‘The imports referenced herein entered on {insert date}. This certification was completed on mm/dd/yyyy, within 14 days of the date of publication of the Federal Register notice of the preliminary determination of circumvention.’’ For all shipments and/or entries made later than the 14th day after the date of publication of this preliminary determination in the Federal Register for which certifications are required, importers should complete the required certification at or prior to the date of Entry Summary. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Appendix III—Importer Certification I hereby certify that: (A) My name is {IMPORTING COMPANY OFFICIAL’S NAME} and I am an official of {NAME OF IMPORTING COMPANY}, located at {ADDRESS OF IMPORTING COMPANY}. (B) I have direct personal knowledge of the facts regarding the importation into the Customs territory of the United States of subject-paper rolls produced in Brazil that entered under entry summary number(s), identified below, and which are covered by this certification. Subject-paper rolls are defined as certain uncoated paper rolls commonly, but not exclusively, known as ‘‘sheeter rolls,’’ (rolls with paper that weigh at least 40 grams per square meter but not more than 150 grams per square meter; and paper that either is a white paper with a GE brightness level of 83 +/¥1% or higher or is a colored paper) that may be converted into subject merchandise. The uncoated paper rolls are typically, but not exclusively, between 52 and 103 inches wide and 50 inches in diameter. Subject-paper rolls are classified under HTSUS category 4802.55. ‘‘Direct personal knowledge’’ refers to facts the certifying party is expected to have in its own records. For example, the importer should have direct personal knowledge of the importation of the product (e.g., the name of the exporter) in its records. (C) If the importer is acting on behalf of the first U.S. customer, complete this paragraph, if not put ‘‘NA’’ at the end of this paragraph: The imported subject-paper rolls covered by this certification were imported by {NAME OF IMPORTING COMPANY} on behalf of {NAME OF U.S. CUSTOMER}, located at {ADDRESS OF U.S. CUSTOMER}.

(E) Select appropriate statement below: ll I have direct personal knowledge of the facts regarding the end-use of the imported product because my company is the end-user of the imported product covered by this certification and I certify that the imported subject-paper rolls will not be used to produce subject merchandise. ‘‘Direct personal knowledge’’ includes information contained within my company’s books and records. ll I have personal knowledge of the facts regarding the end-use of the imported product because my company is not the enduser of the imported product covered by this certification. However, I have been able to contact the end-user of the imported product and confirm that it will not use this product to produce subject merchandise. The enduser of the imported product is {COMPANY NAME} located at {ADDRESS}. ‘‘Personal knowledge’’ includes facts obtained from another party (e.g., correspondence received by the importer from the end-user of the product). (F) The imported subject-paper rolls covered by this certification will not be further processed into uncoated paper sheets in the United States. (NOTE: For certifications related to entries made on or after the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination, and through 14 days after the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination, the importer should replace ‘‘will not be further processed’’ with ‘‘were not further processed’’ in the certification, as necessary). (G) This certification applies to the following entries (repeat this block as many times as necessary): Entry Summary #: Entry Summary Line Item #: Foreign Seller: Foreign Seller’s Address: Foreign Seller’s Invoice #: Foreign Seller’s Invoice Line Item #: Producer: Producer’s Address: (H) I understand that {NAME OF IMPORTING COMPANY} is required to maintain a copy of this certification and sufficient documentation supporting this certification (i.e., documents maintained in the normal course of business, or documents obtained by the certifying party, for example, mill certificates, production records, invoices, etc.) for the later of: (1) A period of five years from the date of entry; or (2) a period of three years after the conclusion of any litigation in the United States courts regarding such entries. (I) I understand that {NAME OF IMPORTING COMPANY} is required to provide this certification and supporting records to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and/or the Department of Commerce (Commerce), upon request by the respective agency. (J) I understand that the claims made herein, and the substantiating documentation, are subject to verification by CBP and/or Commerce. PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (K) I understand that failure to maintain the required certifications, and/or failure to substantiate the claims made herein, and/or failure to allow CBP and/or Commerce to verify the claims made herein, may result in a de facto determination that all entries to which this certification applies are within the scope of the antidumping duty order on certain uncoated paper from Brazil. I understand that such finding will result in: (i) Suspension of liquidation of all unliquidated entries (and entries for which liquidation has not become final) for which these requirements were not met; (ii) the requirement that the importer post applicable antidumping duty cash deposits (as appropriate) equal to the rates determined by Commerce; and (iii) the revocation of {NAME OF IMPORTING COMPANY}’s privilege to certify future imports of subject-paper rolls from Brazil as not being imported for purposes of further processing into the United States into uncoated paper sheets. (L) I understand that agents of the importer, such as brokers, are not permitted to make this certification. Where a broker or other party was used to facilitate the entry process, {NAME OF IMPORTING COMPANY} obtained the entry summary number and date of entry summary from that party. (M) This certification was completed at or prior to the date of entry summary. (N) I am aware that U.S. law (including, but not limited to, 18 U.S.C. 1001) imposes criminal sanctions on individuals who knowingly and willfully make material false statements to the U.S. government.

determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
countervailing duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no 
earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results 
of this review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at 
the U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will 
direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties

expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce also intends 
to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing 
duties in the amount indicated above for Yama, on shipments of subject 
merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on 
or after the date of publication of the final results of review. For 
all non-reviewed firms, we will instruct CBP to collect cash deposits 
of estimated countervailing duties at the most recent company-specific 
or all-others rate applicable to the company, as appropriate. These 
cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results in
