For the 23 companies which were not selected for individual examination, we will instruct CBP to apply the rates listed above to all entries of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by these firms.

total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer's 
examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance

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.\6\

    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 23 companies which were not selected for individual 
examination, we will instruct CBP to apply the rates listed above to 
all entries of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by these 
firms.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

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 Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double 
antidumping duties.
    Commerce is issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: December 3, 2018.
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.
