Changes From the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received from interested parties, we have made certain adjustments to define the universe of Husteel’s U.S. sales.7 Also, based on our analysis of the comments received from interested parties, and the additional information we solicited from HYSCO, we have made certain changes to HYSCO’s costs, HYSCO’s General and Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. For assessment purposes, Husteel and HYSCO reported the name of the importer of record and the entered value for all of their sales to the United States during the period of review (POR). Accordingly, for each respondent, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded non-alloy steel

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations used in our analysis to parties 
to these proceedings within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), the Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final 
results of this review. The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these 
final results of review.
    For assessment purposes, Husteel and HYSCO reported the name of the 
importer of record and the entered value for all of their sales to the 
United States during the period of review (POR). Accordingly, for each 
respondent, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty 
assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Husteel and HYSCO for which they did not

[[Page 32939]]

know were destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate 
for the intermediate company or companies involved in the transaction. 
For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 
FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption, on or after the date of publication as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for Husteel and HYSCO will be equal to the respective weighted-average 
dumping margin established in the final results of this review; (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 
that manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not 
a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding for the manufacturer of subject merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 4.80 percent, the ``all others'' rate established 
pursuant to a court decision.\9\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    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), which continues to govern 
business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 
Timely written notification of the return or 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    These final results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.

    Dated: June 3, 2015.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

List of Issues Discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum

Comment 1: Differential Pricing Analysis Should Not Be Used Because

Average-to-Transaction Comparison Methodology is Arbitrary and 
Unlawful
