Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case briefs. Unless the deadline is extended pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department will issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of our analysis of the issues raised by the parties in their comments, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results. Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.12 If the weighted-average dumping margin for Dongbu or HYSCO is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will calculate importerspecific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).13 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.14 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 where applicable. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent for which they did not know that their 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. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The Department notified CBP to discontinue the collection of cash deposits on entries of the subject merchandise, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after February 14, 2012.15 Notifications This notice 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 the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. These preliminary results of review are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: August 30, 2013.

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Constructed 
export price (CEP) is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the 
Act. NV is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a 
full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the 
following weighted-average dumping margins \4\ for the period August 1, 
2011, through February 14, 2012:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Because there was only one margin that was not zero or de 
minimis, we preliminarily are using this margin (Dongbu's) as the 
rate for the non-selected companies. Due to the revocation of this 
antidumping duty order effective February 14, 2012, the weighted-
average margins listed in the rate chart will only be used to 
calculate the liquidation rate for the five non-selected companies 
in the instant review. If the final results of this review are 
unchanged from the Preliminary Results, the Department will 
liquidate entries for Dongbu based on the business proprietary 
assessment rates which the Department calculates for Dongbu in the 
instant review.

    Unless the deadline is extended pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act, the Department will issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of our analysis of the 
issues raised by the parties in their comments, within 120 days of 
publication of these preliminary results.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\12\ If the 
weighted-average dumping margin for Dongbu or HYSCO is not zero or de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will calculate importer-
specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\13\ We will instruct CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the 
final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. Where either 
the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, 
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.\14\ 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 where 
applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \13\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
weighted-average dumping margin calculation method adopted in 
Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping 
Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; 
Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent for which they 
did not know that their 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. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The Department notified CBP to discontinue the collection of cash 
deposits on entries of the subject merchandise, entered or withdrawn 
from warehouse, on or after February 14, 2012.\15\

Notifications

    This notice 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 the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    These preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: August 30, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
