Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order is welded austenitic stainless steel pipe that meets the standards and specifications set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for the welded form of chromium-nickel pipe designated ASTM A–312. The merchandise covered by the scope of the order also includes austenitic welded stainless steel pipes made according to the standards of other nations which are comparable to ASTM A–312. Imports of welded ASTM A–312 stainless steel pipe are currently classifiable under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 7306.40.5005, 7306.40.5015, 7306.40.5040, 7306.40.5062, 7306.40.5064, and 7306.40.5085.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order is welded 
austenitic stainless steel pipe that meets the standards and 
specifications set forth by the American Society for Testing and 
Materials (ASTM) for the welded form of chromium-nickel pipe designated 
ASTM A-312. The merchandise covered by the scope of the order also 
includes austenitic welded stainless steel pipes made according to the 
standards of other nations which are comparable to ASTM A-312.
    Imports of welded ASTM A-312 stainless steel pipe are currently 
classifiable under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 7306.40.5005, 7306.40.5015, 
7306.40.5040, 7306.40.5062, 7306.40.5064, and 7306.40.5085. Although 
these subheadings include both pipes and tubes, the scope of the 
antidumping duty order is limited to welded austenitic stainless steel 
pipes. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes. However, the written description of the scope of the order is 
dispositive.\3\

    \3\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum for a full description of 
the scope of order.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs are addressed in 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of issues raised and to 
which we responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to 
this notice as an Appendix.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    The Department preliminarily found that LS Metal had no shipments 
and, therefore, no reviewable transactions during the POR. The 
Department received no further comments or information that refute this 
finding. Thus, the Department continues to find that LS Metal had no 
reviewable transactions during the POR.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the 
reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we have made 
no change to SeAH's margin calculation.

Final Results of Review

    As a result of our review, we determine the following weighted-
average dumping margin exists for the period December 1, 2014, through 
November 30, 2015.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department 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.
    The Department will instruct CBP to liquidate entries of 
merchandise produced and/or exported by the aforementioned companies, 
and intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
date of publication of the final results of review.

[[Page 22971]]

    Where the respondent (i.e., SeAH) reported the entered value for 
its sales, the Department calculates importer-specific ad valorem 
assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those 
same sales.\4\ However, where the respondent did not report the entered 
value for its sales, the Department calculates importer-specific per-
unit duty assessment rates.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department's ``automatic assessment'' practice will apply to 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the 
respondent who did not know that the merchandise was destined for the 
United States (i.e., LS Metal). In such instances, 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.\5\

Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of Welded ASTM A-312 Stainless Steel Pipe from Korea entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication of the final results of this administrative review, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit 
rate for the company under review will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margin established in the final results of this review (except, 
if the rate is de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, then the cash 
deposit rate will be zero); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated 
companies not listed above, 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, a prior review, or the less-than-fair-value investigation 
(LTFV), but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
established in the completed segment for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor 
the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any other completed 
segment of this proceeding, then the cash deposit rate will continue to 
be 7.00 percent, the ``all others'' rate made effective by the LTFV 
investigation.\6\ These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Duty Order: Certain Welded Stainless Steel Pipe From the Republic of 
Korea, 60 FR 10064 (February 23, 1995).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notifications to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    The Department is issuing and publishing these final results of 
administrative review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
