Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 153 / Tuesday, August 9, 2011 / Notices assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those sales. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Ekinciler for which it did not know its merchandise 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. We are issuing this determination and publishing these amended final results and notice in accordance with 19 U.S.C. 1516a(e). Dated: August 2, 2011. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
