As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), we conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the order on saccharin from the PRC. Scope of the Order The product covered by this AD order is saccharin. Saccharin is defined as a non-nutritive sweetener used in beverages and foods, personal care products such as toothpaste, table top sweeteners, and animal feeds. It is also used in metalworking fluids. There are four primary chemical compositions of saccharin: (1) Sodium saccharin (American Chemical Society Chemical Abstract Service (‘‘CAS’’) Registry 128– 44–9); (2) calcium saccharin (CAS Registry 6485–34–3); (3) acid (or insoluble) saccharin (CAS Registry 81– 07–2); and (4) research grade saccharin. Most of the U.S.-produced and imported grades of saccharin from the PRC are sodium and calcium saccharin, which are available in granular, powder, spraydried powder, and liquid forms. The merchandise subject to this order is currently classifiable under subheading 2925.11.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) and includes all types of saccharin imported under this HTSUS subheading, including research and specialized grades. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the Department’s written description of the scope of this order remains dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received A complete discussion of all issues raised in this sunset review is provided in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice.6 The issues discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum include the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping 4 Id. at 2. letter from Kinetic, ‘‘Saccharin from the People’s Republic of China: Substantive Response to the Notice of Initiation,’’ dated May 30, 2014. 6 See ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Expedited Second Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Saccharin from the People’s Republic of China,’’ from Gary Taverman, Senior Advisor for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K.

Background On March 7, 1986, the Department published in the Federal Register the CVD order on steel pipes and tubes from Turkey.1 On April 17, 2014, the Department published in the Federal Register the Preliminary Results for this review.2 In the Preliminary Results, we invited interested parties to submit case and rebuttal briefs commenting on the preliminary results and to request a hearing.3 On May 23, 2014, we received a case brief from the Borusan Companies. We received no rebuttal brief, and did not hold a hearing in this review, as none was requested by interested parties. Scope of Order The products covered by this order are certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more, but not over 16 inches, of any wall thickness (pipe and tube) from Turkey. These products are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings as 7306.30.10, 7306.30.50, and 7306.90.10.

The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Rescission of the 2012 Administrative Review, in Part The Department did not receive any information from interested parties or U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB) that was contrary to the claims of Yucel Group and affiliates including Yucel Boru ye Profil Endustrisi A.S, Yucelboru Ihracat Ithalat ye Pazarlama A.S, and Cayirova Born Sanayi ye Ticaret A.S. (collectively, Yucel), Umran Celik Boru Sanayii A.S. (Umran), and Guven Celik Boru San. Ve Tic. Ltd. (Guven) of no sales, shipments, or entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR after we preliminarily indicated our intent to rescind the administrative review. Accordingly, based on record evidence, we determine that Yucel, Umran, and Guven did not ship subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), and consistent with our practice,5 we are rescinding the review for Yucel, Umran, and Guven. Pursuant to section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Act, we calculated an individual subsidy rate for the mandatory respondent, the Borusan Companies. Consistent with the Preliminary Results concurrently with these final results (Issues and Decision Memorandum). 5 See, e.g., Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Partial Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 79 FR 2635 (January 15, 2014). PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and as explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum,6 we determine that the Borusan Companies received a net subsidy rate of 0.13 percent ad valorem during the POR, which is de minimis.7 In past reviews in which the Department limited the number of respondents being individually examined, the Department determined that a ‘‘reasonable method’’ to use to determine the rate applicable to companies that were not individually examined when all the rates of selected mandatory respondents are zero or de minimis is to assign non-selected respondents the average of the most recently determined rates that are not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.8 However, if a nonselected respondent has its own calculated rate that is contemporaneous with or more recent than such previous rates, the Department found it appropriate to apply that calculated rate to the non-selected respondent, even when that rate is zero or de minimis.9 In the Turkey Pipe 2011 Final Results, the most recently completed administrative review of this order, the Department calculated a de minimis net subsidy rate for Erbosan and a net subsidy rate of 0.83 percent ad valorem for Toscelik.10 Therefore, consistent with the Department’s practice, as described above, the Department is assigning rates of de minimis for Erbosan and 0.83 percent ad valorem for Toscelik, based on the individual rates calculated for those companies in the prior review. Our approach in this regard is unchanged from the Preliminary Results.11 Assessment Rates/Cash Deposits In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), the Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review to liquidate shipments of subject merchandise by the Borusan Companies and Erbosan entered, or withdrawn form warehouse, for consumption on or after January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012, 6 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 3. 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1). 8 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 47191, 47194–95 (September 15, 2009). 9 Id. 10 See Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Turkey: Final Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; Calendar Year 2011, 78 FR 64916, 64917 (October 30, 2013) (Turkey Pipe 2011 Final Results) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. 11 See Preliminary Results, and accompanying Decision Memorandum at 6–7. 7 See Final Results of Review 51141 E:\FR\FM\27AUN1.SGM 27AUN1 51142 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 166 / Wednesday, August 27, 2014 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES without regard to CVDs because a de minimis subsidy rate was calculated for each company as the ad valorem assessment rate. We will also instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation but to collect no cash deposits of estimated CVDs on shipments of the subject merchandise by the Borusan Companies and Erbosan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this review. For Toscelik, the Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review to liquidate shipments of subject merchandise by Toscelik entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012, at the ad valorem assessment rate listed above. We will also instruct CBP to collect cash deposits for Toscelik at the CVD cash deposit rate indicated above on all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of these final results of review. For Yucel, Umran, and Guven, the companies for which this review is rescinded, CVDs shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated CVDs required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012, consistent with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). For all non-reviewed companies, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect cash deposits at the most recent company-specific or country-wide rate applicable to the company. Accordingly, the cash deposit rates that will be applied to companies covered by this order, but not examined in this review, are those established in the most recently completed administrative proceeding for each company. The cash deposit rates for all companies not covered by this review are not changed by the results of this review, and remain in effect until further notice. Return or Destruction of Proprietary Information This notice also 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(a)(3).

Failure to comply VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:44 Aug 26, 2014 Jkt 232001 with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From Turkey: Final 
Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; Calendar Year 
2012 and Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, in 
Part

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) completed the 
administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on 
circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes (steel pipes and tubes) 
from Turkey for the January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012, period 
of review (POR) in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act). This review covers multiple exporters/
producers, one of which is being individually examined as a mandatory 
respondent. We determine that the net subsidy rate for the sole 
mandatory respondent, Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. 
(BMB), and Borusan Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S. (Istikbal), (collectively, 
the Borusan Companies), although revised from the preliminary results, 
continues to be de minimis. We further continue to find that the net 
subsidy rates for 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), the two firms not individually 
examined in this review, are de minimis and 0.83 percent ad valorem, 
respectively. Additionally, the Department is rescinding the review of 
three companies that timely certified that they had no shipments of 
subject merchandise during the POR.

the CVD order on steel pipes and tubes from Turkey.\1\ On April 17, 
2014, the Department published in the Federal Register the Preliminary 
Results for this review.\2\ In the Preliminary Results, we invited 
interested parties to submit case and rebuttal briefs commenting on the 
preliminary results and to request a hearing.\3\ On May 23, 2014, we 
received a case brief from the Borusan Companies. We received no 
rebuttal brief, and did not hold a hearing in this review, as none was 
requested by interested parties.

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

Scope of Order

    The products covered by this order are certain welded carbon steel 
pipe and tube with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more, but not 
over 16 inches, of any wall thickness (pipe and tube) from Turkey. 
These products are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings as 7306.30.10, 
7306.30.50, and 7306.90.10. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided 
for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise is dispositive.

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found 
countervailable during the POR, we determine that there is a subsidy, 
i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that confers a 
benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific. See 
sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding financial contribution; 
section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and section 771(5A) of 
the Act regarding specificity. For a complete description of the 
methodology, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.\4\

Companies raised, and to which we responded in the Issues and Decision

Rescission of the 2012 Administrative Review, in Part

    The Department did not receive any information from interested 
parties or U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB) that was contrary 
to the claims of Yucel Group and affiliates including Yucel Boru ye 
Profil Endustrisi A.S, Yucelboru Ihracat Ithalat ye Pazarlama A.S, and 
Cayirova Born Sanayi ye Ticaret A.S. (collectively, Yucel), Umran Celik 
Boru Sanayii A.S. (Umran), and Guven Celik Boru San. Ve Tic. Ltd. 
(Guven) of no sales, shipments, or entries of subject merchandise to 
the United States during the POR after we preliminarily indicated our 
intent to rescind the administrative review. Accordingly, based on 
record evidence, we determine that Yucel, Umran, and Guven did not ship 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), and consistent with our 
practice,\5\ we are rescinding the review for Yucel, Umran, and Guven.

China: Notice of Partial Rescission of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review, 79 FR 2635 (January 15, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Act, we calculated an 
individual subsidy rate for the mandatory respondent, the Borusan 
Companies. Consistent with the Preliminary Results and as explained in 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum,\6\ we determine that the Borusan 
Companies received a net subsidy rate of 0.13 percent ad valorem during 
the POR, which is de minimis.\7\ In past reviews in which the 
Department limited the number of respondents being individually 
examined, the Department determined that a ``reasonable method'' to use 
to determine the rate applicable to companies that were not 
individually examined when all the rates of selected mandatory 
respondents are zero or de minimis is to assign non-selected 
respondents the average of the most recently determined rates that are 
not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.\8\ However, 
if a non-selected respondent has its own calculated rate that is 
contemporaneous with or more recent than such previous rates, the 
Department found it appropriate to apply that calculated rate to the 
non-selected respondent, even when that rate is zero or de minimis.\9\

    In the Turkey Pipe 2011 Final Results, the most recently completed 
administrative review of this order, the Department calculated a de 
minimis net subsidy rate for Erbosan and a net subsidy rate of 0.83 
percent ad valorem for Toscelik.\10\ Therefore, consistent with the 
Department's practice, as described above, the Department is assigning 
rates of de minimis for Erbosan and 0.83 percent ad valorem for 
Toscelik, based on the individual rates calculated for those companies 
in the prior review. Our approach in this regard is unchanged from the 
Preliminary Results.\11\

Assessment Rates/Cash Deposits

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), the Department intends to 
issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of these final results of review to liquidate shipments of 
subject merchandise by the Borusan Companies and Erbosan entered, or 
withdrawn form warehouse, for consumption on or after January 1, 2012, 
through December 31, 2012,

without regard to CVDs because a de minimis subsidy rate was calculated 
for each company as the ad valorem assessment rate. We will also 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation but to collect no cash 
deposits of estimated CVDs on shipments of the subject merchandise by 
the Borusan Companies and Erbosan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final 
results of this review.
    For Toscelik, the Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these 
final results of review to liquidate shipments of subject merchandise 
by Toscelik entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012, at the ad valorem 
assessment rate listed above. We will also instruct CBP to collect cash 
deposits for Toscelik at the CVD cash deposit rate indicated above on 
all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of these 
final results of review.
    For Yucel, Umran, and Guven, the companies for which this review is 
rescinded, CVDs shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of 
estimated CVDs required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from 
warehouse, for consumption, during the period January 1, 2012, through 
December 31, 2012, consistent with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i).
    For all non-reviewed companies, we will instruct CBP to continue to 
collect cash deposits at the most recent company-specific or country-
wide rate applicable to the company. Accordingly, the cash deposit 
rates that will be applied to companies covered by this order, but not 
examined in this review, are those established in the most recently 
completed administrative proceeding for each company. The cash deposit 
rates for all companies not covered by this review are not changed by 
the results of this review, and remain in effect until further notice.
