Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order covers large liquid dielectric power 
transformers (LPTs) having a top power handling capacity greater than 
or equal to 60,000 kilovolt amperes (60 megavolt amperes), whether 
assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete. The merchandise 
subject to the order is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States at subheadings 8504.23.0040, 8504.23.0080 
and 8504.90.9540. This tariff classification is provided for

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section

Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of Review

    We preliminarily determine that, for the period August 1, 2013,

Hyosung for the period August 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014, to 
calculate a weighted-average percentage margin for the non-selected 
companies (i.e., ILJIN, ILJIN Electric, and LSIS) in this review, 
the rate applied to the non-selected companies is a simple average 
percentage margin calculated based on the margins calculated for 
Hyosung and Hyundai.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department shall 
determine, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\11\ If respondents' 
weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate importer-specific assessment 
rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping 
duties calculated for an importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of such sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If 
respondents' weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in 
the final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties 
on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for 
Reviews, i.e., ``{w{time} here the weighted-average margin of dumping 
for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping 
duties will be assessed.'' \12\

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Hyosung and 
Hyundai will be that established in the final results of this 
administrative review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated 
companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
in the investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be the all-others 
rate of 22.00 percent, which is the all-others rate established in the 
investigation.\13\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.
