(2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues to be

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries. If Hyundai's weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis in the final results of this review, 
we will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer's 
examined sales and the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\13\ If Hyundai's weighted-average 
dumping margin or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.\14\ The final results of this administrative review shall be 
the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of 
merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future 
deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-

    \15\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Hyundai for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined to 
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.\16\

    \16\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties,

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

    Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier 
than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the 
U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will 
direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties 
to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 
90 days of publication).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication in the Federal Register of the notice of final results of 
administrative review for all shipments of hot-rolled steel from Korea 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) 
The cash deposit rate for Hyundai will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by a company not covered in this 
review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published in 
the completed segment for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review or the original investigation but 
the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
established in the completed segment for the most recent period for the 
producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers or exporters will continue to be 6.05 percent, the all-others 
rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\17\ These 
cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 doubled 
antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221.
