The final rule requires any party, when submitting factual information, to specify under which subsection of 19 CFR 351.102(b)(21) the information is being submitted and, if the information is submitted to rebut, clarify, or correct factual information already on the record, to provide an explanation identifying the information already on the record that the factual information seeks to rebut, clarify, or correct. The final rule also modified 19 CFR 351.301 so that, rather than providing general time limits, there are specific time limits based on the type of factual information being submitted. These modifications are effective for all proceeding segments initiated on or after May 10, 2013, and thus are applicable to these investigations. Interested parties should review the final rule, available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2013/ 1304frn/2013-08227.txt, prior to submitting factual information in these investigations. Revised Extension of Time Limits Regulation On September 20, 2013, the Department modified its regulation concerning the extension of time limits for submissions in AD and CVD proceedings.35 The modification clarifies that parties may request an extension of time limits before a time limit established under Part 351 expires, or as otherwise specified by the Secretary. In general, an extension request will be considered untimely if it is filed after the time limit established under Part 351 expires. For submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously, an extension request will be considered untimely if it is filed after 10:00 a.m. on the due date. Examples include, but are not limited to: (1) Case and rebuttal briefs, filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309; (2) factual information to value factors under 19 CFR 351.408(c), or to measure the adequacy of remuneration under 19 CFR 351.511(a)(2), filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3) and rebuttal, clarification and correction information filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(iv); (3) comments concerning the selection of a surrogate country and surrogate values and rebuttal; (4) comments concerning CBP data; and (5) quantity and value questionnaires. Under certain circumstances, the Department may elect to specify a different time limit by 35 See Extension of Time Limits; Final Rule, 78 FR 57790 (September 20, 2013). VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:48 Dec 08, 2014 Jkt 235001 which extension requests will be considered untimely for submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously. In such a case, the Department will inform parties in the letter or memorandum setting forth the deadline (including a specified time) by which extension requests must be filed to be considered timely. This modification also requires that an extension request must be made in a separate, stand-alone submission, and clarifies the circumstances under which the Department will grant untimelyfiled requests for the extension of time limits. These modifications are effective for all segments initiated on or after October 21, 2013, and thus are applicable to these investigations. Interested parties should review Extension of Time Limits; Final Rule, available at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/ pkg/FR-2013-09-20/html/201322853.htm, prior to submitting factual information in these investigations. Certification Requirements Any party submitting factual information in an AD or CVD proceeding must certify to the accuracy and completeness of that information.36 Parties are hereby reminded that revised certification requirements are in effect for company/government officials, as well as their representatives. Investigations initiated on the basis of petitions filed on or after August 16, 2013, and other segments of any AD or CVD proceedings initiated on or after August 16, 2013, should use the formats for the revised certifications provided at the end of the Final Rule.37 The Department intends to reject factual submissions if the submitting party does not comply with the applicable revised certification requirements. Notification to Interested Parties Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. On January 22, 2008, the Department published Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO Procedures, 73 FR 3634 (January 22, 2008).

Appendix I—Scope of the Investigations The merchandise subject to these investigations is melamine (Chemical Abstracts Service (‘‘CAS’’) registry number 108–78–01, molecular formula C3H6N6).1 Melamine is a crystalline powder or granule typically (but not exclusively) used to manufacture melamine formaldehyde resins. All melamine is covered by the scope of these investigations irrespective of purity, particle size, or physical form. Melamine that has been blended with other products is included within this scope when such blends include constituent parts that have been intermingled, but that have not been chemically reacted with each other to produce a different product. For such blends, only the melamine component of the mixture is covered by the scope of these investigations. Melamine that is otherwise subject to these investigations is not excluded when commingled with melamine from sources not subject to these investigations. Only the subject component of such commingled products is covered by the scope of these investigations. The subject merchandise is provided for in subheading 2933.61.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheading and CAS registry number are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope is dispositive.

Scope Inquiry

    The Department is conducting a scope inquiry to determine whether 
certain types of black, circular tubing produced to American Society 
for Testing and Materials standard A-513 by Productos Laminados may be 
outside the scope of the Order because they meet the exclusion for 
``mechanical tubing.'' Parties are notified that the final results of 
the scope inquiry may affect the final results of this administrative 
review by decreasing the number of reported sales.

Partial Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole, or in part, if a party that requested 
a review withdraws the request within 90 days of publication of notice 
of initiation of the requested review. All requests for review by all 
parties, except those of Productos Laminados and Prolamsa, Inc.,\7\ 
were timely withdrawn.\8\ Accordingly, we rescind the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain circular welded non-
alloy steel pipe from Mexico covering the period November 1, 2012, 
through October 31,

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this

issues raised in all written case briefs, within 120 days after the 
date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\14\ If the weighted-
average dumping margin for Productos Laminados/Aceros Cuatro Caminos is 
not zero or de minimis in the final results of this review, we will 
calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio 
of the total amount of dumping duties calculated for an importer's 
examined sales and the total entered value of such sales in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the weighted-average dumping margin for 
Productos Laminados/Aceros Cuatro Caminos is zero or de minimis in the 
final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on 
any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for 
Reviews, i.e., ``{w{time} here the weighted-average margin of dumping 
for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping 
duties will be assessed.'' \15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
    \15\ Id. at 77 FR 8101, 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As noted above, the Department has rescinded this administrative 
review for Conduit, TUNA, Lamina, Ternium, Mueller, and PYTCO. For 
these exporters and/or producers, the Department will instruct CBP to 
liquidate all appropriate entries as entered.
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 41 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
date of publication of the final results of this administrative review, 
as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for Productos Laminado/Aceros Cuatro Caminos will be the weighted-
average dumping margin established in the final results of this 
administrative review except if the rate is de minimis within the 
meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate 
will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or 
exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of 
the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding in which the manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
the original less-than-fair-value investigation but the manufacturer 
is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently completed segment of the proceeding for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 32.62 percent ad valorem, the all-
others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\16\ 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: December 1, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
