As a result, consistent with our decision in OCTG from Japan,4 antidumping duties would not be applied to CNRL’s subject merchandise under current law and practice. Accordingly, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the entries at issue without regard to antidumping duties. Assessment Rates Because we found that CNRL did not sell subject merchandise to an unaffiliated customer in the United States, or to unaffiliated customers for exportation to the United States, but exported all the subject merchandise back to CNRL in Canada we will instruct CBP to liquidate its entries covered by this review without regard to antidumping duties. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to POR entries by JFE, Nippon, NKK, and SMI because these companies certified that they made no POR shipments of subject merchandise for which they had knowledge of U.S. destination and we are making a final determination of no shipments. We will instruct CBP to liquidate these entries at the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation (68.88 percent) if there is no rate for the intermediary 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Notifications 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.
