the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. If TFM's 
weighted-average dumping margin is above 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 each importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\7\ 
If TFM's weighted-average dumping margin continues to be 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.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ 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).
    \8\ See Final Modification for Reviews, 77 FR 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by TFM 
for which it did not know its 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.
    We intend to issue 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 notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of OBAs from Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for TFM will 
be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the 
final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise 
exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in these reviews 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 these 
reviews, a prior review, or the original 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; (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 6.19 percent.\9\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.
