Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where the respondent reported the entered value of their U.S. sales, 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 weightedaverage 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.

Assessment Rates

    Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where the respondent reported the 
entered value of their U.S. sales, 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 the respondent 
did not report entered value, we calculated the entered value in order 
to calculate the assessment rate. 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.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ 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 TAK for which it did not 
know that the merchandise it sold to an 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.\5\ The all-others rate is 
16.27 percent.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    \6\ See Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of 
Korea and Taiwan: Antidumping Duty Orders, 83 FR 40752, 40753 
(August 16, 2018).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 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) The cash deposit rate for TAK will be the rate shown 
above; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific rate published for the most recently-completed 
segment; (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 manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent segment for the manufacturer 
of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 16.27 percent, the all-
others rate made effective by the LTFV investigation.\7\ These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate

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

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under
