Verification As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, in March and April 2016, we conducted verification of the sales and cost information submitted by MMZ Boru Profil Uretim Sanayi Ve Tic. A.S. (MMZ) and Ozdemir Boru Profil San. Ve Tic. Ltd. Sti. (Ozdemir) for use in our final determination. We used standard verification procedures, including an examination of relevant accounting and production records, and original source documents provided by MMZ and Ozdemir.3 Changes Since the Preliminary Determination and Use of Adverse Facts Available Based on our analysis of the comments received and our findings at verification, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for Ozdemir. In addition, we revised the margin for MMZ to reflect the application of facts available with an adverse inference, pursuant to sections 776(a)(1), 776(a)(2)(A), (C), and (D), and 776(b) of the Act. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. We also revised the allothers rate as explained below. All-Others Rate Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated all-others rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted-average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and 3 For discussion of our verification findings with respect to each company, see the following memoranda: Memorandum to the File from Rebecca Trainor and Aqmar Rahman, ‘‘Verification of the Sales Response of MMZ Onur Boru Profil Uretim Sanayi Ve Tic.

Pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, if the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for all exporters and producers individually examined are zero, de minimis or determined based entirely under section 776 of the Act, the Department may use any reasonable method to establish the estimated dumping margin for all other producers or exporters. We calculated a margin of zero percent for the only cooperative mandatory respondent in this investigation, Ozdemir, and applied a margin based entirely on adverse facts available (AFA) for MMZ. Therefore, pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, we determine that it is reasonable to calculate the all-others rate based on a simple average of Ozdemir’s zero percent margin and MMZ’s AFA margin.4 Final Determination The final weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: Weightedaverage dumping margins (percent) Exporter/Manufacturer MMZ Boru Profil Uretim Sanayi Ve Tic.

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of HWR pipes and tubes from Turkey, as described in Appendix I of this notice, which were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after March 1, 2016, the date of publication of the preliminary determination of this investigation in the Federal Register. In the event an AD order is issued, because Ozdemir’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero, Ozdemir would be excluded from the AD order. Further, the Department will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the estimated amount by which the normal value exceeds the U.S. price as shown above, adjusted where appropriate for export subsidies found in the final determination of the companion countervailing duty investigation. Consistent with our longstanding practice, where the product under investigation is also subject to a concurrent countervailing duty investigation, we instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the amount by which the NV exceeds the U.S. price, less the amount of the countervailing duty determined to constitute any export subsidies.5 4 See e.g., Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags From Malaysia, 69 FR 34128 (June 18, 2004). 5 See, e.g., Welded Line Pipe From the Republic of Turkey: Final Determination of Sales at Less VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Jul 20, 2016 Jkt 238001 Therefore, in the event that a countervailing duty order is issued and suspension of liquidation is resumed in the companion countervailing duty investigation on HWR pipes and tubes from Turkey, the Department will instruct CBP to require cash deposits adjusted by the amount of export subsidies, as appropriate. These adjustments are reflected in the final column of the rate chart, above.6 Until such suspension of liquidation is resumed in the companion countervailing duty investigation, and so long as suspension of liquidation continues under this antidumping duty investigation, the cash deposit rates for this antidumping duty investigation will be the rates identified in the weightedaverage margin column in the rate chart, above. International Trade Comission (ITC) Notification In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the ITC of the final affirmative determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this proceeding is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of HWR pipes and tubes from Turkey no later than 45 days after our final determination.

Heavy Walled Rectangular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From 
the Republic of Turkey: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) determines that 
heavy walled rectangular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes (HWR pipes 
and tubes) from the Republic of Turkey (Turkey) are being, or are 
likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV), 
as provided in section 735(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act). The period of investigation (POI) is July 1, 2014, through 
June 30, 2015. The final dumping margins of sales at LTFV are listed 
below in the ``Final Determination'' section of this notice.

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, in March and April 2016, 
we conducted verification of the sales and cost information submitted 
by MMZ Boru Profil Uretim Sanayi Ve Tic. A.S. (MMZ) and Ozdemir Boru 
Profil San. Ve Tic. Ltd. Sti. (Ozdemir) for use in our final 
determination. We used standard verification procedures, including an 
examination of relevant accounting and production records, and original 
source documents provided by MMZ and Ozdemir.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ For discussion of our verification findings with respect to 
each company, see the following memoranda: Memorandum to the File

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

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination and Use of Adverse Facts 
Available

    Based on our analysis of the comments received and our findings at 
verification, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for 
Ozdemir. In addition, we revised the margin for MMZ to reflect the 
application of facts available with an adverse inference, pursuant to 
sections 776(a)(1), 776(a)(2)(A), (C), and (D), and 776(b) of the Act. 
For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum. We also revised the all-others rate as explained below.

All-Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated all-
others rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted-average of the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters 
and producers individually investigated excluding any zero or de 
minimis margins, and

[[Page 47356]]

margins determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. Pursuant to 
section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, if the estimated weighted-average 
dumping margins established for all exporters and producers 
individually examined are zero, de minimis or determined based entirely 
under section 776 of the Act, the Department may use any reasonable 
method to establish the estimated dumping margin for all other 
producers or exporters. We calculated a margin of zero percent for the 
only cooperative mandatory respondent in this investigation, Ozdemir, 
and applied a margin based entirely on adverse facts available (AFA) 
for MMZ. Therefore, pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, we 
determine that it is reasonable to calculate the all-others rate based 
on a simple average of Ozdemir's zero percent margin and MMZ's AFA 
margin.\4\

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department 
will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of HWR pipes and tubes 
from Turkey, as described in Appendix I of this notice, which were 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after March 
1, 2016, the date of publication of the preliminary determination of 
this investigation in the Federal Register. In the event an AD order is 
issued, because Ozdemir's weighted-average dumping margin is zero, 
Ozdemir would be excluded from the AD order.
    Further, the Department will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit 
equal to the estimated amount by which the normal value exceeds the 
U.S. price as shown above, adjusted where appropriate for export 
subsidies found in the final determination of the companion 
countervailing duty investigation. Consistent with our longstanding 
practice, where the product under investigation is also subject to a 
concurrent countervailing duty investigation, we instruct CBP to 
require a cash deposit equal to the amount by which the NV exceeds the 
U.S. price, less the amount of the countervailing duty determined to 
constitute any export subsidies.\5\ Therefore, in the event that a 
countervailing duty order is issued and suspension of liquidation is 
resumed in the companion countervailing duty investigation on HWR pipes 
and tubes from Turkey, the Department will instruct CBP to require cash 
deposits adjusted by the amount of export subsidies, as appropriate. 
These adjustments are reflected in the final column of the rate chart, 
above.\6\ Until such suspension of liquidation is resumed in the 
companion countervailing duty investigation, and so long as suspension 
of liquidation continues under this antidumping duty investigation, the 
cash deposit rates for this antidumping duty investigation will be the 
rates identified in the weighted-average margin column in the rate 
chart, above.

the final determination in this proceeding is affirmative, in 
accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will make its 
final determination as to whether the domestic industry in the United 
States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by 
reason of imports of HWR pipes and tubes from Turkey no later than 45 
days after our final determination. If the ITC determines that material 
injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will 
be terminated and all cash deposits will be refunded. If the ITC 
determines that such injury does exist, the Department will issue an 
antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further 
instruction by the Department, antidumping duties on all imports of the 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of 
liquidation.
