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

Disclosure

    The Department will disclose calculations performed for these final 
results to the parties within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection

margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity 
associated with those transactions. We will direct CBP to assess the 
resulting per-unit rate against the entered quantity of the subject

[[Page 28045]]

merchandise.\7\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer- (or 
customer-) specific assessment rate is above de minimis. Where an 
importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.
