Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain changes to the margin calculation for Negromex.7 Final Results of Administrative Review We are assigning the following dumping margin to the firm listed below for the POR, September 1, 2018, through August 31, 2019: Producers/exporters Industrias Negromex S.A. de C.V ....................................

For Negromex, because its weightedaverage dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), Commerce has calculated importerspecific antidumping duty assessment rates. We calculated importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales to that importer and dividing each of these amounts by the total sales value associated with those sales. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review where an importerspecific assessment rate is not zero or de minimis. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis. Consistent with Commerce’s assessment practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Negromex, for which Negromex did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.8 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the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) For Negromex, the cash deposit rate will be 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; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a previous review, or the original less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be 8 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Industrias Negromex S.A. de C.V.........................           23.26
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    We will disclose to interested parties the calculations performed 
in connection with these final results within five days of the 
publication of this notice, consistent with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and CBP shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise, 
in accordance with the final results of this review. Commerce

[[Page 41816]]

intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP no earlier 
than 41 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
review in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 356.8(a).
    For Negromex, because its weighted-average dumping margin is not 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), Commerce has 
calculated importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates. We 
calculated importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates by 
aggregating the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined 
sales to that importer and dividing each of these amounts by the total 
sales value associated with those sales. We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review 
where an importer-specific assessment rate is not zero or de minimis. 
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the 
importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis.
    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Negromex, for which 
Negromex did not know that 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.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of 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) For Negromex, the cash deposit rate will be 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; (3) if the 
exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a previous review, or 
the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the 
producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the 
most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to 
be 19.52 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation.\9\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

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

with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which

order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and
