SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 5, 2018, Commerce published the Preliminary Results and invited comments from interested parties.1 No interested party submitted comments. Commerce conducted this administrative review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial federal government closure from December 22, 2018, through the resumption of operations on January 28, 2019.2 If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with Commerce’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day. The revised deadline for the final results of this review is now April 15, 2019. Final Results of the Review As a result of this review, Commerce determines that a weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for LGE for the period February 1, 2017, through January 31, 2018. 1 See Large Residential Washers From the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017– 2018, 83 FR 55346 (November 5, 2018) (Preliminary Results). 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Deadlines Affected by the Partial Shutdown of the Federal Government,’’ dated January 28, 2019.

Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this administrative review. Because we calculated a zero margin for LGE in the final results of this review, 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without regard to antidumping duties all shipments of subject merchandise manufactured and exported by LGE, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, during the POR. In accordance with Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by LGE for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.4 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publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for merchandise produced and/or exported by LGE will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not covered by 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-thanfair-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.5 These 4 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) for a full discussion of this practice. 5 See Large Residential Washers from Mexico and the Republic of Korea: Antidumping Duty Orders, 78 FR 11148 (February 15, 2013).

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

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    As no parties submitted comments on the Preliminary Results, we 
made no changes in the final results of this review.

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, Commerce determines that a weighted-
average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for LGE for the period 
February 1, 2017, through January 31, 2018.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), 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.
    Because we calculated a zero margin for LGE in the final results of 
this review, 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. In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic 
assessment'' practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR produced by LGE for which it did not know that the merchandise was 
destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\4\

value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation
