Welded ASTM A-312 Stainless Steel Pipe From the Republic of Korea: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2013-2014, 46647-46649 [2016-16945]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 137 / Monday, July 18, 2016 / Notices Steel’s sole U.S. customer in July 2015.27 Hyundai Steel asserts that its U.S. subsidiary, HSA, is the same company as Hyundai HYSCO’s U.S. subsidiary, HHU, which was renamed pursuant to the merger.28 Based on the evidence reviewed, we preliminarily find that Hyundai Steel is the successor-in-interest to the merger of Hyundai Steel and Hyundai HYSCO. Specifically, we preliminarily find that the merger of these two companies resulted in no significant changes to management, production facilities, supplier relationships, and customers with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise. Thus, Hyundai Steel operates as the same business entity as Hyundai HYSCO with respect to the subject merchandise. If the Department upholds these preliminary results in the final results, Hyundai Steel will be entitled to the antidumping duty deposit rate currently assigned to Hyundai HYSCO with respect to the subject merchandise (i.e., 15.75 percent). If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this CCR, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of entries of OCTG made by Hyundai Steel, effective on the publication date of the final results. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Public Comment Interested parties may submit case briefs and/or written comments not later than 14 days after the date of publication of this notice.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculation performed in connection with 
these final results within five days of the publication date of this 
notice pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), the Department 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 the final results of 
review. We will instruct CBP to liquidate entries of merchandise 
produced and/or exported by the aforementioned companies. The 
Department will calculate importer-specific assessment rates for SeAH. 
Where the respondent reported the entered value for its sales, the 
Department calculates importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates 
based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales.\7\ 
However, where the respondent did not report the entered value for its 
sales, the Department calculates importer-specific per-unit duty 
assessment rates. We will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem 
assessment rate as indicated above to all entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported by LS 
Metal and the all other companies.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of Welded ASTM A-312 Stainless Steel Pipe from Korea entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication of the final results of this administrative review, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit 
rate for the company under review will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margin established in the final results of this review (except, 
if the rate is de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, then the cash 
deposit rate will be zero); (2) for

[[Page 46649]]

previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate 
published in the completed segment for the most recent period; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
the less-than-fair-value investigation (LTFV), but the manufacturer is, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the completed 
segment for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the 
merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a 
firm covered in this or any other completed segment of this proceeding, 
then the cash deposit rate will continue to be 7.00 pecent, the ``all 
others'' rate made effective by the LTFV investigation.\8\ These 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    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.

Notifications to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    The Department is issuing and publishing these final results of 
administrative review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: July 11, 2016.
