Scope of the Order The products covered by the order include circular welded non-alloy steel pipes and tubes, of circular crosssection, not more than 406.4 millimeters (16 inches) in outside diameter, regardless of wall thickness, surface finish (black, galvanized, or painted), or end finish (plain end, beveled end, threaded and coupled). Those pipes and tubes are generally known as standard pipe, though they may also be called structural or mechanical tubing in certain applications. All carbon steel pipes and tubes within the physical description outlined above are included in the scope of this order, except for line pipe, oil country tubular goods, boiler tubing, cold-drawn or cold-rolled mechanical tubing, pipe and tube hollows for redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished rigid conduit. Imports of these products are currently classifiable under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings: 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25, 7306.30.50.32, 7306.30.50.40, 7306.30.50.55, 7306.30.50.85, and 7306.30.50.90.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:42 Dec 05, 2012 Jkt 229001 Department determined that Yucel had no entries subject to review during the POR.13 As a result, in the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined that Erbosan and Yucel had no reviewable entries during the POR.14 No interested party has since submitted additional record evidence or commented on this issue. Therefore, based on the record evidence, we continue to find that these respondents had no reviewable entries during the POR. Moreover, consistent with our practice, we intend to issue liquidation instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) concerning entries for Erbosan and Yucel following the final results of the review.15 We will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing unliquidated entries of merchandise produced and/or exported by Erbosan and Yucel at the all-others rate.16 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this proceeding and to which we have responded are listed in Appendix I to this notice and addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice.17 The Issues and Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, entitled ‘‘Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube from Turkey (Period of Review: May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011): Whether Entries Are Reviewable for ERBOSAN Erciyas Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S.,’’ dated September 30, 2011. 13 See Memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K.

The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes From the Preliminary Results and Post-Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received from interested parties, we have made the following changes in calculating Borusan’s and Toscelik’s dumping margins for the final results: (1) We have corrected the home market window period to account for all of Borusan’s POR sales; (2) we are not including Borusan’s revenue from the sale of land and profit from the previous year and, instead, will exclude such revenue from the calculation of the general and administrative (‘‘G&A’’) expense ratio; (3) we are including unpaid exempted import duties in the calculation of Borusan’s cost of production; and (4) we re-calculated Toscelik’s U.S. credit expense by using Toscelik’s own rates from short-term loans in the United States. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comments 1 through 4 for Borusan and Comment 5 for Toscelik. For further details on how the changes were applied in the margin calculation, see Memorandum to the File, from Victoria Cho and Christopher Hargett, International Trade Analysts, through Robert James, Program Manager, entitled ‘‘Final Results in the 2010/2011 Administrative Review on Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Turkey,’’ dated November 30, 2012; see also Memorandum from James J.

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. For assessment purposes, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). We calculated such rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the sales for which entered value was reported. If an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) or exporter has a weightedaverage dumping margin that is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to assess that importer’s entries of subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003.19 This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to 19 CFR 351.224(b).

reviewable entries during the POR.\14\ No interested party has since 
submitted additional record evidence or commented on this issue. 
Therefore, based on the record evidence, we continue to find that these 
respondents had no reviewable entries during the POR.

Changes From the Preliminary Results and Post-Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received from interested 
parties, we have made the following changes in calculating Borusan's 
and Toscelik's dumping margins for the final results: (1) We have 
corrected the home market window period to account for all of Borusan's 
POR sales; (2) we are not including Borusan's revenue from the sale of 
land and profit from the previous year and, instead, will exclude such 
revenue from the calculation of the general and administrative 
(``G&A'') expense ratio; (3) we are including unpaid exempted import 
duties in the calculation of Borusan's cost of production; and (4) we 
re-calculated Toscelik's U.S. credit expense by using Toscelik's own 
rates from short-term loans in the United States. See Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at Comments 1 through 4 for Borusan and Comment 5 
for Toscelik. For further details on how the changes were applied in 
the margin calculation, see Memorandum to the File, from Victoria Cho 
and Christopher Hargett, International Trade Analysts, through Robert 
James, Program Manager, entitled ``Final Results in the 2010/2011 
Administrative Review on Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes 
from Turkey,'' dated November 30, 2012; see also Memorandum from James 
J. Balog, through Michael P. Martin, to Neal M. Halper, entitled ``Cost

November 28, 2012.

Final Results of Review

    As a result of this review, we determine that the following 
weighted-average dumping margins exist for the

period May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    We will disclose calculation memorandums used in our analysis to 
parties to these proceedings within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice.\18\

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will 
determine, and 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 these final results of 
review.
    For assessment purposes, the Department applied the assessment rate 
calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of 
the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain 
Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 
2012).
    We calculated such rates based on the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of 
the sales for which entered value was reported. If an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) or 
exporter has a weighted-average dumping margin that is zero or de 
minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to assess that importer's 
entries of subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\19\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these 
final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know 
their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
country-specific all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-
value (``LTFV'') investigation if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this notice of final results of the administrative 
review for all shipments of subject merchandise entered or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption, on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
subject to this review, the cash deposit rate will be the respective 
rates established in the final results of this review, as listed above; 
(2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above 
that have their own rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed 
segment of this proceeding in which that manufacturer or exporter 
participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, 
a prior review, or the LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding 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 completed 
segment conducted under this proceeding by the Department, the cash 
deposit rate will be 14.74 percent, the all-others rate, established in 
the LTFV investigation.\20\ These cash 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 and/or countervailing 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 and/or countervailing 
duties occurred and the subsequent increase in antidumping duties by 
the amount of antidumping and/or countervailing duties reimbursed.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice 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). 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 these results of review in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 30, 2012.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
