Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, pre-verification 
corrections, and our findings at verifications, we made certain changes 
to the margin calculations for Chung Hung Steel Corp. (CHS) and Tension 
Steel Industries Co., Ltd. (Tension).\4\

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, we conducted sales and 
cost verifications of the questionnaire responses submitted by CHS and 
Tension. We used standard verification procedures, including 
examination of relevant accounting and production records, as well as 
original source documents provided by both companies.\5\

Final Determination

    The Department determines that the following weighted-average 
dumping margins exist for the period July 1, 2012, through June 30, 
2013:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                              Weighted-
                                                               average
                   Manufacturer/exporter                        margin
                                                              (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chung Hung Steel Corp......................................         0.00
Tension Steel Industries Co., Ltd..........................         2.52
All Others.................................................         2.52
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suspension of Liquidation

    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(C) of the Act, the Department will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend 
liquidation of all entries of certain oil country tubular goods from 
Taiwan--with the exception of subject merchandise produced and exported 
by Chung Hung Steel Corp., for which we found no weighted average 
dumping margin--which were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication of this notice in the 
Federal Register. With the exception of subject merchandise produced 
and exported by Chung Hung Steel Corp., we will instruct CBP to require 
a cash deposit equal to the weighted-average amount by which normal 
value exceeds U.S. price, as follows: (1) The rate for Tension Steel 
Industries Co., Ltd., will be the rate we determined in this final 
determination; (2) if the exporter is not a firm identified in this 
investigation but the producer is, the rate will be the rate 
established for the producer of the subject merchandise; (3) the rate 
for all other producers or exporters will be 2.52 percent, as discussed 
in the ``All Others Rate'' section, below. These suspension of 
liquidation instructions will remain in effect until further notice.

All Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated ``all 
others'' rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters 
and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de 
minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely under section 776 
of the Act. Because the margin for Chung Hung Steel Corp. was zero, we 
assigned as the all others rate the margin calculated for Tension Steel 
Industries Co., Ltd., the only margin we calculated that was neither de 
minimis nor determined under section 776 of the Act; that rate is 2.52 
percent.

U.S. International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we notified the U.S. 
International Trade Commission (ITC) of our final determination. As our 
final determination is affirmative and our amended preliminary 
determination was negative, in accordance with section 735(b)(3) of the 
Act, the ITC will determine within 75 days whether the domestic 
industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with 
material injury, by reason of imports or sales (or the likelihood of 
sales) for importation of the subject merchandise. If the ITC 
determines that such injury exists, the Department will issue an 
antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further 
instruction by the Department, antidumping duties on all imports of the 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of 
liquidation.

Return or Destruction of Proprietary Information

    This notice 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. Timely notification of the 
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.
    This determination is issued and published pursuant to sections 
735(d) and 777(i)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b).

    Dated: July 10, 2014.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary, for Enforcement and Compliance.
