We have calculated a zero margin for LGE in the final results of this review; therefore, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties all shipments of subject merchandise manufactured and exported by LGE, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, during the POR. The Department’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by LGE, for which the company did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States.3 In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in the less-than fair-value 3 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) for a full discussion of this practice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Orders Background In accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final determinations in these investigations, in which it found that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of ESB rubber from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, and Poland. The ITC also notified the Department of its determination that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of ESB rubber from Korea subject to the Department’s critical circumstances finding.5 Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, the Department is issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of ESB rubber from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, and Poland are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, and Poland, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. As a result of the ITC’s final determination, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of ESB rubber from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, and Poland. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of ESB rubber from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, and Poland entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after February 24, 2017, the date of publication of the preliminary determinations,6 but will In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on July 19, 2017, the Department published affirmative final determinations in the less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigations of ESB rubber from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, and Poland.1 On September 1, 2017, the ITC notified the Department of its affirmative determination that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, by reason of the LTFV imports of ESB rubber from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, and Poland, and its determination that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of subject merchandise from Korea subject to the Department’s affirmative critical circumstances determination.2 For Mexico, on July 17, 2017, we received comments from Industrias Negromex S.A. de C.V. (Negromex), the sole mandatory respondent in the Mexico investigation, that we made ministerial errors in our final determination.3 The allegations raised by Negromex in its comments do not result in a change to Negromex’s margin from the final determination.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on comments received from interested parties regarding our 
Preliminary Results and our findings at verification, we made certain 
changes to the preliminary weighted-average dumping margin calculations 
for LGE. For a discussion of these changes, see the ``Margin 
Calculations'' section of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of the Review

    We are assigning the following weighted-average dumping margin to 
LGE:

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days 
of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this 
proceeding, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), the Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (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 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this administrative review.
    We have calculated a zero margin for LGE in the final results of 
this review; therefore, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate without 
regard to antidumping duties all shipments of subject merchandise 
manufactured and exported by LGE, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption, during the POR. The Department's ``automatic 
assessment'' practice will apply to entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR produced by LGE, for which the company did not know that 
its merchandise was destined for the United States.\3\ 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., 11.80 percent),\4\ if there is no rate for the 
intermediary company(ies) involved in the transaction who have their 
own individual weighted-average dumping margin in an already competed 
segment of this proceeding.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following 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 date of publication, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for LGE will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this administrative review (i.e., 
zero); (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not 
covered in this administrative review but covered in a prior completed 
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
