Assessment Rates

    If a respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is above de 
minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate an 
importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the 
total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer's 
examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\6\ If the respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of reviews, 
we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) not to assess 
duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification 
for Reviews.\7\

    \6\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for 
Reviews).

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

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Husteel Co., Ltd. or Hyundai Steel Company for which they did not know 
their merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others 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, AJU Besteel, NEXTEEL, and SeAH Steel Corporation, we will 
instruct CBP to apply the rates listed above to all entries of subject 
merchandise produced and/or exported by these firms.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary 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 POR. 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.

accordance
