Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days 
of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department intends 
to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of these final results of review. Because we have

review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\4\ This clarification applies to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Koehler for which it did not

instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
all-others rate effective during the POR if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. See Assessment

discontinue collection of cash deposits of antidumping duties on 
entries of the subject merchandise made on or after November 24, 2013.
