    We will disclose to interested parties the calculations performed 
in connection with these final results within five days of the 
publication of this notice, consistent with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review.\5\ The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of

[[Page 19965]]

    For assessment purposes we calculated importer-specific, ad valorem 
assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those 
same sales.\6\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of
