Facts Available For these final results, we continue to find that S.C. Silcotub S.A. did not act to the best of its ability by not submitting a response to our antidumping duty questionnaire, thus withholding information necessary to calculate an accurate dumping margin and information which we requested. Accordingly, we continue to find that the use of adverse facts available is PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14501 warranted under section 776 of the Act. For a detailed discussion of our application, selection, and corroboration of the rate we selected as adverse facts available, see Preliminary Results, 71 FR at 1510. Final Results of Review As a result of our review, we determine that a weighted–average dumping margin of 15.15 percent exists for S.C. Silcotub S.A. for the period August 1, 2004, through July 31, 2005. Duty Assessment and Cash–Deposit Requirements The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Because we are applying adverse facts available to all exports of subject merchandise produced or exported by S.C. Silcotub S.A., we will instruct CBP to assess the final percentage margin against the entered customs values on all applicable entries during the period of review. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of review. The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of these final results of this administrative review for all shipments of seamless pipe from Romania entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash–deposit rate for S.C. Silcotub S.A. will be 15.15 percent; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters that were previously reviewed or investigated, the cash deposit will continue to be the most recent rate published in the final determination or final results for which the producer or exporter received an individual rate; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less–than-fair–value investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash–deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any previous review, the cash–deposit rate shall be 13.06 percent, the all–others rate established in the 2002–03 administrative review.
