Assessment Rates

    If a respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is above de 
minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate an 
importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the 
total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer's 
examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\6\ If the respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of reviews, 
we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) not to assess 
duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification 
for Reviews.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for 
Reviews).
    \7\ See Final Modification for Reviews, 77 FR at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd. or Hyundai Steel Company for which they 
did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others 
rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in 
the transaction.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual 
examination, BDP International, Bookuk Steel Co., Ltd., Samsung C&T 
Engineering & Construction Group, Samsung C&T Trading and Investment 
Group, and Sung Jin Steel Co., Ltd., we will instruct CBP to apply the 
rates listed above to all entries of subject merchandise produced and/
or exported by these firms.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for companies subject

the review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not 
covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of the 
proceeding, 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 the original 
investigation but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the 
rate established for the most recent period for the producer of the 
merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 0.98 percent,\8\ the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation, adjusted for the 
export-subsidy rate in the companion countervailing duty investigation.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    The Department is issuing and publishing these results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: February 27, 2017.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
