SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) determines that welded stainless pressure pipe (‘‘WSPP’’) from India is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value (‘‘LTFV’’). The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015. The final estimated weightedaverage dumping margins of sales at LTFV are listed below in the ‘‘Final Determination’’ section of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On May 10, 2016, the Department published the Preliminary Determination of this LTFV investigation and invited parties to comment.1 As provided in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), in June and July 2016, the Department verified the sales and cost data reported by (1) Steamline Industries Limited (‘‘Steamline’’) and (2) Sunrise Stainless Pvt. Ltd. (‘‘Sunrise’’) (including its affiliate Sun Mark Stainless Pvt. Ltd. (‘‘Sun Mark’’) (‘‘collectively, ‘‘Sunrise Group’’)), the two mandatory respondents in this investigation. In August 2016, Petitioners,2 Sunrise Group and Steamline submitted case briefs and rebuttal briefs.

The firm manufactures injection molding, tooling and CNC machining. This firm is a manufacturer of precision tools for the oil industry. Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is circular welded austenitic stainless pressure pipe not greater than 14 inches in outside diameter, from India. For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigation,’’ in Appendix II to this notice. The Department did not receive comments regarding the scope of this investigation. Final Determination of Affiliation and Collapsing We preliminarily determined to collapse Sunrise with its affiliate Sun Mark and to treat these two companies as a single entity.4 No party raised this issue subsequent to the Preliminary Determination or provided comment in their case or rebuttal briefs. Accordingly, we continue to find Sunrise and Sun Mark are affiliated pursuant to section 771(33)(F) of the Act and should be collapsed together and treated as a single entity, pursuant to the criteria laid out in 19 CFR 351.401(f).5 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in this investigation are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is incorporated by reference and hereby adopted by this notice.

The signed and electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Use of Adverse Facts Available In making this final determination, the Department relied, in part, on facts available with regard to sales of defective or sub-prime merchandise in the home market by Steamline.6 Because Steamline failed to act to the best of its ability to respond to the Department’s requests for information, we drew an adverse inference, where appropriate, in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.7 For further information, see the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our review and analysis of the comments received from parties, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for both respondents since the Preliminary Determination, including a revision of our comparisons of normal value (‘‘NV’’) to U.S. price on a theoretical, instead of actual, weight basis. For a discussion of all of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. All-Others Rate Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the all-others rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins established for exporters or producers individually examined, excluding any rates that are zero, de minimis, or determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. Because we calculated a de minimis weightedaverage dumping margin for Sunrise Group, we have based the all-others rate on the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for Steamline, the other mandatory respondent in this investigation. Final Determination The Department determines that the final estimated weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: Estimated weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Exporter or producer Steamline Industries Ltd .......................................................................................................................................... Sunrise Stainless Pvt. Ltd. and Sun Mark Stainless Pvt. Ltd. (collectively, ‘‘Sunrise Group’’) .............................. All Others .................................................................................................................................................................

Because Sunrise Group, which includes Sunrise Stainless Pvt. Ltd. and Sun Mark Stainless Pvt. Ltd., has an estimated weighted-average final dumping margin of zero, we are directing CBP to terminate suspension of liquidation of 6 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:51 Sep 28, 2016 Jkt 238001 entries of WSPP produced and exported by this entity. In addition, subject merchandise produced and exported by Sunrise Group will be excluded from the antidumping duty order, if issued. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(d), we will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the weighted-average amount by which the NV exceeds the export price (‘‘EP’’) or constructed export price (‘‘CEP’’), as indicated in the chart above. 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. Therefore, in the event that a countervailing duty order is issued and suspension of liquidation is resumed in the companion countervailing duty investigation on WSPP from India, the Department will instruct CBP to require cash deposits adjusted by the amount of 7 See PO 00000 sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.

International Trade Commission (‘‘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 part, section 735(b)(2) of the Act requires that the ITC make its final determination whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of WSPP from India no later than 45 days 8 See Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Calculation Memorandum for Export Subsidy Offset to Cash Deposit Rates,’’ dated concurrently with this notice.

Welded Stainless Pressure Pipe From India: Final Determination of 
Sales at Less Than Fair Value

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``Department'') determines that 
welded stainless pressure pipe (``WSPP'') from India is being, or is 
likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value 
(``LTFV''). The period of investigation (``POI'') is July 1, 2014, 
through June 30, 2015. The final estimated weighted-average dumping 
margins of sales at LTFV are listed below in the ``Final 
Determination'' section of this notice.

DATES: Effective September 29, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Terpstra or Alex Rosen, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office III, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
3965, or (202) 482-7814, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On May 10, 2016, the Department published the Preliminary 
Determination of this LTFV investigation and invited parties to 
comment.\1\ As provided in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), in June and July 2016, the Department verified 
the sales and cost data reported by (1) Steamline Industries Limited 
(``Steamline'') and (2) Sunrise Stainless Pvt. Ltd. (``Sunrise'') 
(including its affiliate Sun Mark Stainless Pvt. Ltd. (``Sun Mark'') 
(``collectively, ``Sunrise Group'')), the two mandatory respondents in 
this investigation. In August 2016, Petitioners,\2\ Sunrise Group and 
Steamline submitted case briefs and rebuttal briefs. For a complete 
discussion of the events that occurred since the Preliminary 
Determination, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.\3\

    \2\ Petitioners consist of Bristol Metals, LLC, Felker Brothers 
Corporation, Outokumpu Stainless Pipe, Inc., and Marcegaglia USA 
Inc. (collectively, ``Petitioners'').

Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of Welded Stainless Pressure Pipe 
from India,'' dated concurrently with this notice (``Issues and 
Decision Memorandum'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Investigation

    The product covered by this investigation is circular welded 
austenitic stainless pressure pipe not greater than 14 inches in 
outside diameter, from India. For a full description of the scope of 
this investigation, see the ``Scope of the Investigation,'' in Appendix 
II to this notice. The Department did not receive comments regarding 
the scope of this investigation.

Final Determination of Affiliation and Collapsing

    We preliminarily determined to collapse Sunrise with its affiliate 
Sun Mark and to treat these two companies as a single entity.\4\ No 
party raised this issue subsequent to the Preliminary Determination or 
provided comment in their case or rebuttal briefs. Accordingly, we 
continue to find Sunrise and Sun Mark are affiliated pursuant to 
section 771(33)(F) of the Act and should be collapsed together and 
treated as a single entity, pursuant to the criteria laid out in 19 CFR 
351.401(f).\5\

electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical 
in content.

Use of Adverse Facts Available

    In making this final determination, the Department relied, in part, 
on facts available with regard to sales of defective or sub-prime 
merchandise in the home market by Steamline.\6\ Because Steamline 
failed to act to the best of its ability to respond to the Department's 
requests for information, we drew an adverse inference, where 
appropriate, in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.\7\ 
For further information, see the accompanying Issues and Decision 
Memorandum at Comment 1.

    \6\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1.
    \7\ See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our review and analysis of the comments received from 
parties, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for both 
respondents since the Preliminary Determination, including a revision 
of our comparisons of normal value (``NV'') to U.S. price on a 
theoretical, instead of actual, weight basis. For a discussion of all 
of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

All-Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the all-others rate 
shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters or producers 
individually examined, excluding any rates that are zero, de minimis, 
or determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. Because we 
calculated a de minimis weighted-average dumping margin for Sunrise 
Group, we have based the all-others rate on the estimated weighted-
average dumping margin calculated for Steamline, the other mandatory 
respondent in this investigation.

Final Determination

    The Department determines that the final estimated weighted-average 
dumping margins are as follows:

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

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed to interested parties 
in this proceeding within five days of the public announcement of this 
final determination in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will direct 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to continue to suspend 
liquidation of all appropriate entries of WSPP from India, as described 
in the ``Scope of the Investigation'' section, which are entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after May 10, 2016, the 
date of publication in the Federal Register of the affirmative 
Preliminary Determination. Because Sunrise Group, which includes 
Sunrise Stainless Pvt. Ltd. and Sun Mark Stainless Pvt. Ltd., has an 
estimated weighted-average final dumping margin of zero, we are 
directing CBP to terminate suspension of liquidation of entries of WSPP 
produced and exported by this entity. In addition, subject merchandise 
produced and exported by Sunrise Group will be excluded from the 
antidumping duty order, if issued.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(d), we will instruct CBP to require a 
cash deposit equal to the weighted-average amount by which the NV 
exceeds the export price (``EP'') or constructed export price 
(``CEP''), as indicated in the chart above. 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. Therefore, in the event 
that a countervailing duty order is issued and suspension of 
liquidation is resumed in the companion countervailing duty 
investigation on WSPP from India, 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.\8\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Memorandum to the File, ``Calculation Memorandum for 
Export Subsidy Offset to Cash Deposit Rates,'' dated concurrently 
with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

International Trade Commission (``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 part, 
section 735(b)(2) of the Act requires that the ITC make its final 
determination whether the domestic industry in the United States is 
materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of 
imports of WSPP from India no later than 45 days

[[Page 66923]]
