Disclosure and Public Comment

    We intend to disclose the margin calculations performed in this 
proceeding within five days after publication of these final results in 
the Federal Register, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Because the weighted-
average dumping margin for CJ Indonesia has been determined to be zero 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries of subject merchandise without regard 
to antidumping duties.
    In accordance with Commerce's practice, for entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by CJ Indonesia 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.\7\

[[Page 37626]]

covered under this administrative 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 or any 
previous review or in the original 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 6.19 percent, the all-
others rate established in the LTFV investigation.\8\ These deposit

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