Assessment Rates If TFM’s weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).9 If TFM’s weightedaverage dumping margin or an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.10 The final results of this administrative review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise under review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. For entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by TFM for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days after public announcement of the final 
results in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce will determine, 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.
    For Dongkuk 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).\8\ For entries of subject merchandise during the POR 
produced by Dongkuk 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. For the 
companies which were not selected for individual examination, BDP 
International and Sung Jin Steel Co., Ltd., 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
