If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be notified of the time and date for the hearing to be held.15 Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, which will include the results of our analysis of all issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, unless extended, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. the most recent period; (3) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the China-wide rate of 111.73 percent; 18 and (4) for all nonChinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to Chinese exporter(s) that supplied that nonChinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results of this review, Commerce will determine, and CBP will assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.16 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). Pursuant to Commerce’s practice in NME cases, if we continue to determine in the final results that TMI/TMM had no shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR from these companies will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.17 Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 double antidumping duties. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review 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 review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For TMI/TMM, which claimed no shipments, the cash deposit rate will remain unchanged from the rate assigned to TMI/TMM in the most recently completed review of the companies; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters who are not under review in this segment of the proceeding but who have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for 19 CFR 310(d). 16 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 17 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). Notification to Interested Parties These preliminary results of review are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    As a result of this administrative review, we determine that the 
following weighted-average dumping margin exists for the POR:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sucroal S.A................................................        2.50
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce will disclose to the parties in a proceeding the 
calculations performed in connection with a final results of review 
within five days of any public announcement or, if there is no public 
announcement, within five days of the date of publication of the notice 
of final results in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b). However, Commerce made no adjustments to the margin 
calculation methodology used in the Preliminary Results; therefore, 
there are no calculations to disclose for the final results.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with the final results of this review. For Sucroal, 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 (AD) assessment rates. We calculated importer- (or 
customer-) specific ad valorem AD assessment rates by dividing the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales by 
the total entered value of the same sales for that importer, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    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, in accordance with 19 CFR 356.8(a). 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 upon 
publication of the notice of these final results for all shipments of 
citric acid from Colombia entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication provided by section 
751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Sucroal will be 
equal to the dumping margin established in the final results of this 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not 
covered in this review but covered in a completed 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 and/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 28.48 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\3\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 
destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective 
order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and 
the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
