Use of Adverse Facts Available In the Preliminary Determination, we determined that WSP Pipe Co., Ltd. (WSP) failed to respond to the Department’s questionnaire and thus withheld necessary information within the meaning of section 776(a) of the Act.2 Furthermore, because WSP did not submit any response to our requests for information and did not suggest alternative forms in which it could submit such responses, we preliminarily determined that sections 782(c)(1), (d), and (e) of the Act did not apply. Thus, in the Preliminary Determination, pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A), (B), and (C) of the Act, we based the dumping margin on facts otherwise available for WSP. Moreover, because WSP failed to act to the best of its ability to comply with the Department’s requests for information, we applied adverse facts available (AFA) to WSP in the Preliminary Determination, pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act.3 In the Preliminary Decision Memo, we stated that ‘‘{i}t is the Department’s practice to use the highest rate from the petition in an investigation when a respondent fails to act to the best of its ability to provide the necessary information.4 Therefore, because an 2 See Preliminary Determination and the accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 3 See section 776(b) of the Act; see also 19 CFR 351.308(c); and Statement of Administrative Action, H.R.

Marsh to Acting Assistant Secretary Ronald K. Lorentzen entitled 
``Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Affirmative 
Determination in the Less than Fair Value Investigation of Certain 
Oil Country Tubular Goods from the Republic of the Philippines'' 
dated concurrently with this notice and hereby adopted by this 
notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 HLD Clark.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ For a discussion of these changes, see Memorandum to Neal 
Halper entitled ``Cost of Production and Constructed Value 
Calculation Adjustments for the Final Determination--HLD Clark Steel 
Pipe Co. Inc.,'' dated concurrently with this notice and Memorandum 
to the File entitled ``Final Determination of Sales at Less Than 
Fair Value in the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Oil 
Country Tubular Goods from the Republic of the Philippines--Analysis 
Memorandum for HLD Clark Steel Pipe Co., Inc.,'' dated concurrently 
with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, we conducted sales and 
cost verifications of the questionnaire responses submitted by HLD 
Clark. We used standard verification procedures, including examination 
of relevant accounting and production records, as well as original 
source documents provided by HLD Clark.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Memorandum to the File entitled ``Verification of the 
Sales Response of HLD Clark Steel Pipe Co., Inc., in the Less-Than-
Fair-Value Investigation of Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from 
the Republic of the Philippines,'' dated April 10, 2014, and 
Memorandum to the File entitled ``Verification of the Cost Response 
of HLD Clark Steel Pipe Co., Inc. in the Antidumping Duty 
Investigation of Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from the Republic 
of the Philippines,'' dated May 13, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination

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

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             Weighted-
                                                              average
                  Exporter/manufacturer                       dumping
                                                              margin
                                                             (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
HLD Clark Steel Pipe Co., Inc...........................            9.88
All Others..............................................            9.88
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all entries of certain oil country tubular goods 
from the Republic of the Philippines which were entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after February 25, 2014, the date 
of publication of the Preliminary Determination. 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 HLD Clark 
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 9.88 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. The ``All Others'' rate is based on the weighted-average 
dumping margin calculated for HLD Clark, the only company for which the 
Department calculated a rate.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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, in accordance with section 
735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will determine within 45 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 will serve 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 written 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.
