Therefore, for these final results we find, as in the Preliminary Results, that the new shipper sale made by Zhejiang Tianyi was made on a bona fide basis. Surrogate Country Since the Preliminary Results, no interested party has commented on the selection of the Philippines as the surrogate country. Therefore, we continue to determine that the Philippines is the appropriate surrogate country for the final results of this NSR. Separate Rates The Department found in the Preliminary Results that Zhejiang Tianyi demonstrated a lack of de jure and de facto government control with respect to its export activities, and preliminarily determined that it was eligible for a separate rate.22 No information has been placed on the record of this segment of the proceeding since the Preliminary Results to contradict our preliminary separate–rate determination. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to determine that Zhejiang Tianyi is eligible for a separate rate. Final Results of the New Shipper Review The Department has determined that the following final dumping margin exists for the period January 1, 2009, through June 30, 2009: Weighted– average margin (percent) Exporter WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Zhejiang Tianyi Scientific & Educational Equipment Co., Ltd. .. 0 Assessment The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b). For importers/ customers of the respondent where the respondent did not report entered values, we have calculated importer/ customer–specific antidumping duty assessment amounts based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales of subject merchandise to the total quantity of subject merchandise sold in those transactions.

Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of these final results of NSR for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: 1) for the exporter/producer listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate shown for these companies; 2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non–PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter–specific rate or combination rate published for the most recent period; 3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC–wide rate of 216.01 percent; and 4) for all non–PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that supplied that non–PRC exporter. These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. Dated: July 23, 2010. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. Notification of Interested Parties This notice also 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 7, 1986, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the CVD order on certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube products 
from Turkey. See Countervailing Duty Order: Certain Welded Carbon Steel 
Pipe and Tube Products From Turkey, 51 FR 7984 (March 7, 1986). On 
April 1, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register the 
preliminary results for this review. See Preliminary Results, 75 FR 
16439. On June 23 and 24, 2010, the Department verified the 
questionnaire responses submitted by Borusan. See Memorandum to Melissa 
Skinner, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 3, from the Team, 
regarding ``Verification of the Questionnaire Responses Submitted by 
the Borusan Group,'' (July 7, 2010).\2\ The verification report was 
released to interested parties on July 8, 2010. See Memorandum to the 
File from Kristen Johnson, Trade Analyst, AD/CVD Operations, Office 3, 
regarding ``Case and Rebuttal Briefs Schedule,'' (July 9, 2010). In the 
Preliminary Results, we invited interested parties to submit case 
briefs commenting on the preliminary results or to request a hearing. 
We did not hold a hearing in this review, as one was not requested, and 
did not receive any case briefs. We, therefore, have made no revisions 
to the preliminary results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ A public version of this report is available on the public 
file in room 1117 of the main Department of Commerce building.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of Order

    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 
over 16 inches, of any wall thickness (pipe and tube) from Turkey. 
These products are currently provided for under the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) as item numbers 7306.30.10, 
7306.30.50, and 7306.90.10. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided 
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 Preliminary 
Results, we continue to find that Borusan and Toscelik had de minimis 
net countervailable subsidy rates for the POR. In accordance with 
section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Act, we calculated a total net 
countervailable subsidy rate of 0.12 percent ad valorem for Borusan and 
0.09 percent for Toscelik. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c), these 
calculated rates are 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 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, to liquidate shipments of subject 
merchandise by Borusan and Toscelik entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after January 1, 2008, through 
December 31, 2008, without regard to countervailing duties because a de 
minimis subsidy rate was calculated for each company. We will also 
instruct CBP not to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing 
duties on shipments of the subject merchandise by Borusan and Toscelik 
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 or 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 23, 2010.
