Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For a full

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on information Universal submitted after the initiation of 
this administrative review, and due to the fact that we have not 
received any information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
indicating that Universal had entries during the POR, the Department 
has preliminarily determined that the record evidence indicates that 
Universal had no reviewable entries during the POR. In addition, the 
Department finds that it is not appropriate to rescind the review with 
respect to Universal but, rather, to complete the review and issue 
appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of review, 
as is our practice.\3\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Universal which it did not know were destined for the United States, we 
instructed CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate 
if there was no rate for the intermediate company or companies involved 
in the transaction.\4\ We intend to issue assessment instructions
