[[Page 41019]]

issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the 
date of publication of this notice, unless otherwise extended.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated importer-specific 
ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount 
of dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value 
of the sales for which entered value was reported. Where either the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific 
rate 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 the final 
results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, 
where applicable.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Toyo Kohan for which 
Toyo Kohan did not know that the merchandise it sold to the 
intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was 
destined for the United States. In such instances, 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.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following 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 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the companies 
listed above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is 
less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 
19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; 
(2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not covered in 
this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific cash deposit rate published for the most recently completed 
segment in which the company was reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a 
firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-than-
fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, then the cash 
deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 45.42 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\17\ These deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
