    The products covered by this order are certain welded carbon steel 
pipe and tube with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more, but not

for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise is dispositive.

Final Results of Review

    As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the 
preliminary results. Therefore, consistent with the Pipe Preliminary 
Results, we continue to find that Borusan received countervailable 
subsidies during the POR. In accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), we calculated a total 
net subsidy rate of 0.23 percent ad valorem, which is de minimis,

    As there have been no changes to or comments on the preliminary 
results, we are not attaching a decision memorandum to this Federal 
Register notice. For further details of the programs included in this 
proceeding, see the Pipe Preliminary Results.

Assessment Rates/Cash Deposits

    The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') 15 days after the date of 
publication of these final results of this review, to liquidate 
shipments of subject merchandise by Borusan entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after January 1, 2005, through 
December 31, 2005, without regard to countervailing duties because a de 
minimis subsidy rate was calculated. We will also instruct CBP not to 
collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties on shipments 
of the subject merchandise by Borusan entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the 
final results of this review.
    For all non-reviewed companies, we will instruct CBP to continue to 
collect cash deposits at the most recent company-specific or country-
wide rate applicable to the company. Accordingly, the cash deposit 
rates that will be applied to companies covered by this order, but not 
examined in this review, are those established in the most recently 
completed administrative proceeding for each company. These rates shall 
apply to all non-reviewed companies until a review of a company 
assigned these rates is requested.

Return of Destruction of Proprietary Information

    This notice also serves as a 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). Timely written 
notification of the return/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.
