Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    As no parties submitted comments on the margin calculation 
methodology used in the Preliminary Results, the Department made no 
adjustments to that methodology in the final results of this review.

    As a result of this review, the Department determines that the 
following weighted-average dumping margin exists for entries of subject 
merchandise that were produced and/or exported by LGE during the POR:

LG Electronics, Inc........................................        0.64
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce 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. 
Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly 
to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this 
administrative review.
    For LGE, which has a weighted-average dumping margin which is not 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we calculated 
importer- (or

[[Page 4468]]

customer-) specific per-unit duty assessment rates based on the ratio 
of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's (or 
customer's) examined sales to the total sales quantity associated with 
those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an 
importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.

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shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 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, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit 
rate for LGE will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent 
period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash 
deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to 
be 11.80 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation.\4\ These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate

duties.
