Assessment Rates

    Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP)

[[Page 22020]]

shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in this 
review, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b). Where an importer-
specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 
percent), the entries by that importer will be liquidated without 
reference to antidumping duties. For entries of Euro SME and Euro 
Nature Green's merchandise during the period of review for which they 
did not know the merchandise was destined for the United States, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others 
rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in 
the transaction.
    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 
to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 
90 days of publication). Because we calculated a zero percent margin 
for Euro SME and Euro Nature Green, we intend to instruct CBP to 
liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.\3\

    \3\ See 19 CFR 351.206(c)(2).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this notice of final results of administrative review in 
the Federal Register for all shipments of PRCBs from Malaysia entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The 
cash deposit rate for Euro SME and Euro Nature Green will be zero, the 
rate established in the final results of this review; (2) for 
merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this 
administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the 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 producer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not 
a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-
than-fair-value investigation but the producer is, then the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of the proceeding for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 84.94 percent, the all-others rate

performed in connection with the final results within five days of the 
date of publication of the notice of final results in the Federal

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to the parties subject 
to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written
