For DSM and Hyundai Steel, we calculated 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 For entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by DSM or Hyundai Steel for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers 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. For the eight companies that we determined had no reviewable entries of the subject merchandise in this review period, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any applicable entries of subject merchandise at the all-others rate.

analysis of all issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of 
publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, 
pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\11\ If a 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis 
in the final results of this review and the respondent reported 
reliable entered values, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem 
assessment rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of the total 
amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales made during the 
period of review to each importer to the total entered value of those 
same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the respondent 
has not reported reliable entered values, we will calculate a per-unit 
assessment rate for each importer by dividing the total amount of 
dumping for the examined sales made during the period of review to that 
importer by the total sales quantity associated with those 
transactions. Where an importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is 
zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2). If the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is 
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, i.e., ``{w{time} here the weighted-average 
margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de 
minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.'' \12\

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

    Regarding entries of subject merchandise during the period of 
review that were produced by Prolamsa and for which they did not know 
that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the all-others rate of 
3.76 percent, as established in the less-than-fair-value investigation 
of the order, if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction.\13\ For a full

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this 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 Prolamsa will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final 
results of this administrative review; (2) for previously reviewed or 
investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding in which they were 
reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
prior review, or in the 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 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be the all-others rate of 3.76 percent. 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a 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 review period. 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: August 30, 2017.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
