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

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days after publication of these final results in 
the Federal Register, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act and 
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 will determine, 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. We will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on 
the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for 
each importer's examined sales and the total entered value of the 
importer's sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    Where the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is either 
zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an 
importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.
    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice will apply to entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in 
these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not 
know that the merchandise they 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.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ 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 cash deposit requirements for estimated antidumping 
duties 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 Sahamitr Pressure Container Plc. will be equal to its weighted-
average dumping margin established in the final results of this 
administrative review (except if that rate is de minimis, in which 
situation the cash deposit rate will be zero); (2) for merchandise 
exported by a producer or exporter not covered in this review but 
covered in a prior completed segment of the proceeding, 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 review, a prior review, or the original investigation but the 
producer has been covered in a prior complete segment of this 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will be the company-specific rate 
established for the most recent period for the producer of the 
merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters

[[Page 12660]]

will continue to be 10.77 percent,\7\ the all-others rate established 
in the less-than-fair-value investigation. These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the 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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 
19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
