We used standard verification procedures, including an examination of relevant accounting and production records, and original source documents provided by MMZ and Ozdemir.3 Changes Since the Preliminary Determination and Use of Adverse Facts Available Based on our analysis of the comments received and our findings at verification, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for Ozdemir.

For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. We also revised the allothers rate as explained below.
