Changes Since the Preliminary Results In these final results of review, we made the following changes from the Preliminary Results: • We used only the financial statements of Surya Global Steel Tubes Limited (Surya) to calculate surrogate financial ratios, rather than the average of the ratios obtained from the financial statements of Surya and APL Apollo Tubes Limited. See Comment 1 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum. • We valued export and import brokerage and handling (B&H) using data obtained from Doing Business 2016: India, rather than Doing Business 2014: India. See Comment 2 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum. • We did not include a surrogate value for B&H incurred on imports of raw materials from non-market economy countries. See Comment 2 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum. • We valued the costs of inland insurance using a surrogate value.

Assessment Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will determine, and 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. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review in the Federal Register. Consistent with the Department’s assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by companies individually examined during the administrative review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the Vietnam-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under the exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the Vietnam-wide rate.10 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the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For SeAH, the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnamese and nonVietnamese exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most-recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the exporter was reviewed; (3) for all Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established for the Vietnam-wide 10 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Notification to Interested Parties Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the Deep Seabed Hard Mineral Resources Act (DSHMRA; 30 U.S.C. 1401–1473), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has received an application for five-year extensions of Deep Seabed Mining Exploration Licenses USA–1 and USA– 4 that are held by the Lockheed Martin Corporation (‘‘Lockheed Martin’’ or the ‘‘Licensee’’).

Section 107(a) of DSHMRA provides that NOAA shall extend exploration licenses for a term of not more than five years if the licensee has substantially complied with the license and exploration plan and has requested an extension of the license. 30 U.S.C. 1417. Lockheed Martin has submitted this request to extend its existing DSHMRA licenses for five years, and thereby, maintain the interests and rights these exploration licenses may convey. Given that at-sea exploration activities are contingent upon certain events that have not yet occurred, Lockheed Martin has adjusted its exploration schedule. During the proposed five-year extension, the Licensee will continue to conduct various preparatory activities in advance of at-sea exploration, which may become feasible at some future date. In order for at-sea exploration to be feasible, Lockheed Martin has stated that both improvement in the condition of the metals markets, and United States accession to the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, as modified by the 1994 Implementing Agreement, are necessary. In light of these two unmet prerequisites, Lockheed Martin is not proposing to conduct at-sea exploration activities at this time, and approval of this extension request would not in and of itself authorize the Licensee to conduct at-sea exploration. If this extension request is granted, Lockheed Martin will need to obtain additional authorization from NOAA before it would be authorized to conduct at-sea exploration activities under these licenses. Among other requirements, authorization to conduct at-sea exploration activities would require NOAA to consider additional environmental analysis that may be necessary pursuant to NOAA’s obligations under the National Environmental Policy Act, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq., and DSHMRA. The request for extension and revised exploration plan can be viewed at www.regulations.gov, by searching for docket number ‘‘NOAA–NOS–2017– 0019’’. NOAA is seeking comments on the request to extend USA–1 and USA– 4 including, but not limited to, whether there has been substantial compliance with the licenses and exploration plans, and whether the revised exploration plans for USA–1 and USA–4 meet the terms, conditions and restrictions of DSHMRA and the licenses issued thereunder.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs filed by parties 
in this

[[Page 18612]]

review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is 
incorporated herein by reference. A list of the issues which parties 
raised, and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, 
follows in the appendix to this notice. The Issues and Decision 
Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via 
Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to 
registered users at https://access.trade.gov and is available to all 
parties in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department 
of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Issues and Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    In these final results of review, we made the following changes 
from the Preliminary Results:
     We used only the financial statements of Surya Global 
Steel Tubes Limited (Surya) to calculate surrogate financial ratios, 
rather than the average of the ratios obtained from the financial 
statements of Surya and APL Apollo Tubes Limited. See Comment 1 of the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum.
     We valued export and import brokerage and handling (B&H) 
using data obtained from Doing Business 2016: India, rather than Doing 
Business 2014: India. See Comment 2 of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.
     We did not include a surrogate value for B&H incurred on 
imports of raw materials from non-market economy countries. See Comment 
2 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.
     We valued the costs of inland insurance using a surrogate 
value. See Comment 4 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of Review

    The Department determines that the following weighted-average 
dumping margin exists for the period February 25, 2014 through August 
31, 2015:

Disclosure

    The Department intends to disclose the calculations performed for 
these final results of review within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department will determine, and 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. The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of the final results of this 
administrative review in the Federal Register.
    Consistent with the Department's assessment practice in non-market 
economy (NME) cases, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. 
sales database submitted by companies individually examined during the 
administrative review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate 
such entries at the Vietnam-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department 
determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of subject 
merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under the exporter's 
case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the 
Vietnam-wide rate.\10\

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 from Vietnam 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) For SeAH, the cash 
deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed 
Vietnamese and non-Vietnamese exporters not listed above that received 
a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the 
most-recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the 
exporter was reviewed; (3) for all Vietnamese exporters of subject 
merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established for the Vietnam-
wide entity, which is 111.47 percent; \11\ and (4) for all non-
Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received 
their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to 
the Vietnamese exporter that supplied that non-Vietnamese exporter with 
the subject merchandise. These deposit requirements, when imposed, 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or countervailing 
duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the 
Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties 
occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties Regarding Administrative Protective 
Order

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern 
business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 
Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO 
materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h) (1).

    Dated: April 12, 2017.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
