Rescission in Part [FR Doc. 2014–09281 Filed 4–22–14; 8:45 am] respect to Flex and JBF.5 On March 31, 2014, petitioners withdrew their request for an AD administrative review of Flex.6 This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 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 terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Petitioners’ March 31, 2014 withdrawal request was submitted within the 90-day period and thus is timely.7 Because Petitioners’ withdrawal of their requests for review is timely and because no other party requested a review of Flex, we are rescinding this review with respect to this company, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The request from petitioners for an administrative review of JBF has not been withdrawn. As such, we are not rescinding the review with respect to JBF. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess ADs on all appropriate entries. Subject merchandise of Flex will be assessed ADs at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated ADs required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of ADs prior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 5 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 79392 (December 30, 2013). 6 See Petitioners’ letter ‘‘Withdrawal of Request for Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Flex Middle East FZE,’’ dated March 31, 2014. 7 The 90th day fell on March 30, 2014.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on circular welded carbon steel pipe and tube products from Turkey (steel pipe) for the period of review (POR) of January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012. The review covers one producer/ exporter of subject merchandise that the Department selected for individual examination: Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (BMB), and Borusan Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S. (Istikbal), (collectively, the Borusan Companies). Additionally, this review covers two firms that were not individually examined: Erbosan Erciyas Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (Erbosan AS) and Erbosan Erciyas Pipe Industry and Trade Co. Kayseri Free Zone Branch (Erbosan FZB), (collectively Erbosan), and Tosyali dis Ticaret A.S. (Tosyali) and Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S. (Toscelik Profil), (collectively, Toscelik). We preliminarily determine that the Borusan Companies received countervailable subsidies during the POR but that the total net subsidy rate is less than 0.5 percent ad valorem and, therefore, de minimis. For purposes of these preliminary results, we assigned Erbosan and Toscelik, the non-selected respondents, net subsidy rates of de minimis and 0.83 percent ad valorem, respectively. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: April 23, 2014.
