Assessment Rates

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

[[Page 32630]]

Commerce will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the 
final results of this review.
    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).\3\ 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 all-others rate if there is 
no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. 
We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of these reviews.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ In these final results, Commerce 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).

prior review, or the original investigation but the producer has been 
covered in a prior complete segment of this proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period 
for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 0.98 percent,\4\

countervailing duty investigation. These cash deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.
