Duty Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review.
    In accordance with the Department's ``automatic assessment'' 
practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Gerdau for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for 
the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those 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 the 
publication date 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all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Gerdau will be 
the rate established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not 
covered in this administrative 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 recently completed segment of this 
proceeding; (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 recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 25.77 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the investigation.\3\ These cash deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

    This notice also serves as a final 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

antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility
