SUMMARY: On July 23, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain large diameter carbon and alloy seamless standard, line, and pressure pipe (over 4 1⁄2 inches) from Japan for the period of review (POR) of June 1, 2012 through May 31, 2013. For these final results, we continue to find that Sumitomo Metal Industries, Ltd. (SMI) failed to cooperate to the best of its ability and, accordingly, the Department is applying AFA to SMI. In addition, we find that no shipments were made by JFE Steel Corporation (JFE), Nippon Steel Corporation (Nippon), and NKK Tubes (NKK) during the POR. DATES: Effective Date: November 17, 2014.

In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. Final Determination of No Shipments We have made no changes to our findings announced in the Preliminary Results. Consistent with our findings in the Preliminary Results,2 we find that JFE, Nippon, and NKK had no shipments during the POR. Methodology Also consistent with the Preliminary Results,3 and in accordance with sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, we relied on facts available with an adverse inference with respect to SMI. Thus, we assign a rate of 107.80 percent as the weighted-average dumping margin for SMI with respect to one of its entries, while we continue to find that SMI had no other shipments during the POR. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Assessment Rates The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of this review. These final results of this review are the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.5 Where assessments are based upon total facts available, including total AFA, we instruct CBP to assess duties at the AFA margin rate. The Department intends to instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on the single POR entry of the subject merchandise produced or exported by SMI at the rate of 107.80 percent of the entered value.6 The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003.7 This clarification will apply to all POR entries entered under the case numbers for JFE, Nippon, and 4 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Large Diameter Carbon and Alloy Seamless Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Japan; and Certain Small Diameter Carbon and Alloy Seamless Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe From Japan and the Republic of South Africa, 65 FR 39360 (June 26, 2000) (LTFV Investigation). 5 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. 6 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 7 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment Policy Notice).

Timely notification of the destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.

In Lifestyle Enterprise, Inc. v. United States, 768 F. Supp. 2d 1286 (Ct. Int’l Trade 2011), the CIT remanded the case to the Department to ‘‘explain or otherwise resolve’’ Orient International Holding Shanghai Foreign Trade Co. Ltd.’s (‘‘Orient’’) separate rate, the data set for wood inputs, the tariff heading for medium density fiberboard, whether Global Classic Designs, Inc, and Diretso Design Furnitures, Inc. produce comparable merchandise through a comparable production process, surrogate labor value, and negative export pricing. In Lifestyle Enterprise, Inc. v. United States, 844 F. Supp. 2d 1283 (Ct. Int’l Trade 2012), the CIT remanded the case to the Department to re-determine Orient’s AFA rate and to re-open the record to gather more evidence with respect to wood inputs, or to use the volume-based data set to value wood inputs. In Lifestyle Enterprise, Inc. v. United States, 865 F. Supp. 2d 1284 (Ct. Int’l Trade 2012), the CIT remanded the issue of Orient’s AFA rate to the Department for reconsideration for a second time. In Lifestyle Enterprise, Inc. v. United States, 751 F.3d 1371 (Fed. Cir. 2014), the CAFC reversed the CIT’s decision to require the use of volume-based data in valuing the lumber inputs, and remanded the issue to the Department for further proceedings consistent with its opinion. Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the CAFC held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The CIT’s October 28, 2014, judgment sustaining the WBF Final Remand constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with the AR 3 Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court decision with respect to the AR 3 Final Results, the revised weighted-average dumping margin for the period January 1, 2007 through December 31, 2007, for Yihua Timber is 21.53 percent.

and Pressure Pipe From Japan: Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review; 2012-2013

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

SUMMARY: On July 23, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain large diameter carbon and alloy 
seamless standard, line, and pressure pipe (over 4 \1/2\ inches) from 
Japan for the period of review (POR) of June 1, 2012 through May 31, 
2013. For these final results, we continue to find that Sumitomo Metal 
Industries, Ltd. (SMI) failed to cooperate to the best of its ability 
and, accordingly, the Department is applying AFA to SMI. In addition, 
we find that no shipments were made by JFE Steel Corporation (JFE), 
Nippon Steel Corporation (Nippon), and NKK Tubes (NKK) during the POR.

DATES: Effective Date: November 17, 2014.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    We have made no changes to our findings announced in the 
Preliminary Results. Consistent with our findings in the Preliminary 
Results,\2\ we find that JFE, Nippon, and NKK had no shipments during 
the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 5-10.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    Also consistent with the Preliminary Results,\3\ and in accordance 
with sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, we relied on facts available 
with an adverse inference with respect to SMI. Thus, we assign a rate 
of 107.80 percent as the weighted-average dumping margin for SMI with 
respect to one of its entries, while we continue to find that SMI had 
no other shipments during the POR. For a full description of the 
methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212. The Department intends to 
issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of these final results of this review.
    These final results of this review are the basis for the assessment 
of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review 
and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.\5\ Where 
assessments are based upon total facts available, including total AFA, 
we instruct CBP to assess duties at the AFA margin rate. The Department 
intends to instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on the single POR 
entry of the subject merchandise produced or exported by SMI at the 
rate of 107.80 percent of the entered value.\6\

    \5\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\7\ This clarification will apply to all POR entries 
entered under the case numbers for JFE, Nippon, and

[[Page 68410]]

NKK, and certain entries entered under the case number for SMI for 
which we determined SMI demonstrated its certification of no POR 
shipments. We will instruct CBP to liquidate these entries at the all-
others rate established in the LTFV investigation, 68.88 percent,\8\ if 
there is no rate for the intermediary involved in the transaction. See 
Assessment Policy Notice for a full discussion of this clarification.

Notifications

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to the 
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). 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and this notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 7, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
