Assessment Rates

    Commerce will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties 
on all appropriate entries in this review, in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Because we calculated 
a zero margin in the final results of this review for both Jindal and 
SRF, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to dumping duties.
    Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication 
of the final results of this administrative review. 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 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shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 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, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit 
rate for Jindal and SRF will both be zero, the rate established in the 
final results of this review; (2) for previously reviewed or 
investigated companies not covered in this review, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the 
most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
or any previous review or in 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 period for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer 
is a firm covered in this or any previous review or the investigation, 
the cash-deposit rate will continue to be the all-others rate of 5.71 
percent, which is the all-others rate established by Commerce in the 
LTFV investigation.\15\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also 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 the Secretary'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/destruction 
of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation, which is subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

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