For purposes of these orders, references to size are in nominal inches and include all products within tolerances allowed by pipe specifications. This merchandise includes, but is not limited to, the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A–312 or ASTM A– 778 specifications, or comparable domestic or foreign specifications. ASTM A–358 products are only included when they are produced to meet ASTM A–312 or ASTM A–778 specifications, or comparable domestic or foreign specifications. Excluded from the scope are: (1) Welded stainless mechanical tubing, meeting ASTM A–554 or comparable domestic or foreign specifications; (2) boiler, heat exchanger, superheater, refining furnace, feedwater heater, and condenser tubing, meeting ASTM A– 249, ASTM A–688 or comparable domestic or foreign specifications; and (3) specialized tubing, meeting ASTM A269, ASTM A–270 or comparable domestic or foreign specifications. The subject imports are normally classified in subheadings 7306.40.5005, 7306.40.5040, 7306.40.5062, 7306.40.5064, and 7306.40.5085 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). They may also enter under HTSUS subheadings 7306.40.1010, 7306.40.1015, 7306.40.5042, 7306.40.5044, 7306.40.5080, and 7306.40.5090. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only; the written description of the scope of these investigations is dispositive. Antidumping Duty Orders As stated above, on July 14, 2014, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final determinations in these investigations, in which it found material injury with respect to WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.4 Because the ITC determined that imports of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam are materially 3 Id. 4 Id. E:\FR\FM\21JYN1.SGM 21JYN1 42290 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 139 / Monday, July 21, 2014 / Notices injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. These antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after January 7, 2014, the date of publication of the preliminary determinations,5 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC’s final injury determination as further described below. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all entries of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amounts as indicated below. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determinations, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average antidumping duty margins listed below.6 Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, we extended the four-month period to no more than six months in each case.7 In the underlying investigations, the Department published the preliminary determinations on January 7, 2014. Therefore, the six-month period beginning on the date of publication of the preliminary determinations ended on July 6, 2014. Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after July 6, 2014, the date the provisional measures expired, until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determinations in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of publication of the ITC’s final determination in the Federal Register.

Background

    In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on May 30, 2014, 
the Department published its affirmative final determinations of sales 
at less-than-fair-value in the antidumping duty investigations of WSPP 
from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, respectively.\1\ On July 14, 
2014, the ITC notified the Department of its affirmative determinations 
that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the 
meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of less-than-
fair-value imports of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.\2\ In 
addition, the ITC notified the Department of its final determination 
that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of 
subject merchandise from Malaysia that are subject to the Department's 
affirmative critical circumstances finding.\3\

Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by these orders are circular welded austenitic 
stainless pressure pipe not greater than 14 inches in outside diameter. 
For purposes of these orders, references to size are in nominal inches 
and include all products within tolerances allowed by pipe 
specifications. This merchandise includes, but is not limited to, the 
American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A-312 or ASTM A-778 
specifications, or comparable domestic or foreign specifications. ASTM 
A-358 products are only included when they are produced to meet ASTM A-
312 or ASTM A-778 specifications, or comparable domestic or foreign 
specifications.
    Excluded from the scope are: (1) Welded stainless mechanical 
tubing, meeting ASTM A-554 or comparable domestic or foreign 
specifications; (2) boiler, heat exchanger, superheater, refining 
furnace, feedwater heater, and condenser tubing, meeting ASTM A-249, 
ASTM A-688 or comparable domestic or foreign specifications; and (3) 
specialized tubing, meeting ASTM A269, ASTM A-270 or comparable 
domestic or foreign specifications.
    The subject imports are normally classified in subheadings 
7306.40.5005, 7306.40.5040, 7306.40.5062, 7306.40.5064, and 
7306.40.5085 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS). They may also enter under HTSUS subheadings 7306.40.1010, 
7306.40.1015, 7306.40.5042, 7306.40.5044, 7306.40.5080, and 
7306.40.5090. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and 
customs purposes only; the written description of the scope of these 
investigations is dispositive.

Antidumping Duty Orders

    As stated above, on July 14, 2014, in accordance with section 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final 
determinations in these investigations, in which it found material 
injury with respect to WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.\4\ 
Because the ITC determined that imports of WSPP from Malaysia, 
Thailand, and Vietnam are materially

[[Page 42290]]

injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from 
Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the 
Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties 
equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise 
exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the 
merchandise, for all relevant entries of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, 
and Vietnam. These antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated 
entries of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after January 7, 2014, 
the date of publication of the preliminary determinations,\5\ but will 
not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional 
measures period and before publication of the ITC's final injury 
determination as further described below.

Pressure Pipe from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of 
Final Determination, 79 FR 806 (January 7, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all entries of WSPP 
from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. We will also instruct CBP to 
require cash deposits equal to the amounts as indicated below. These 
instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further 
notice.
    Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC's 
final affirmative injury determinations, CBP will require, at the same 
time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this 
subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-
average antidumping duty margins listed below.\6\

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant 
to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect 
for more than four months except where exporters representing a 
significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request 
the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six 
months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant 
proportion of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, we extended 
the four-month period to no more than six months in each case.\7\ In 
the underlying investigations, the Department published the preliminary 
determinations on January 7, 2014. Therefore, the six-month period 
beginning on the date of publication of the preliminary determinations 
ended on July 6, 2014. Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states 
that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the 
ITC's final injury determination.

    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our 
practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, 
unliquidated entries of WSPP from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after July 6, 
2014, the date the provisional measures expired, until and through the 
day preceding the date of publication of the ITC's final injury 
determinations in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will 
resume on the date of publication of the ITC's final determination in 
the Federal Register.
    The weighted-average dumping margins are as follows:

determination on imports of WSPP from Malaysia, we will instruct CBP to 
lift suspension and to refund any cash deposit made to secure the 
payment of estimated antidumping duties with respect to entries of the 
merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after October 9, 2013, (i.e., 90 days prior to the date of publication 
of the preliminary determination), but before January 7, 2014, the 
publication date of the preliminary determination.
