Duty Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), the

[[Page 32170]]

Department has determined, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the 
final results of this review. The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 41 days after 
publication of the final results of this administrative review.
    For Electrolux, the Department calculated an ad valorem importer-
specific assessment rate equal to the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total entered 
value of those sales. Where an importer-specific assessment rate is 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate these entries without regard to antidumping 
duties pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
    The Department's ``automatic assessment'' practice will apply to 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Electrolux, 
for which the company did not know that its merchandise was destined 
for the United States.\4\ In such instances, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in the 
less-than fair-value (LTFV) investigation (i.e., 36.52 percent),\5\ if 
there is no rate for the intermediary company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.

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all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 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 date of publication, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for Electrolux 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 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; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will 
be the rate established for the most recently-completed segment of this 
proceeding for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash 
deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to
