entered under the case numbers for JFE, Nippon, and NKK, and certain 
entries entered under the case number for SMI, if we continue to make a 
final determination of no shipments because they certified that they 
made no POR shipments of subject merchandise for which they had 
knowledge of U.S. destination. We will instruct CBP to liquidate these 
entries at the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation, 
68.88 percent,\8\ if there is no rate for the intermediary involved in
