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

Final Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, the Department received a 
claim of no shipments from NKK. In the Preliminary Results, the 
Department preliminarily found that NKK did not have reviewable entries 
during the POR. Additionally, the Department stated in the Preliminary 
Results that it was not appropriate to rescind the review with

[[Page 80641]]

respect to NKK at that time, but rather complete the review with 
respect to NKK and issue appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) based on the final results.
    After issuing the Preliminary Results, the Department received no 
comments from interested parties, and has not received any information 
that would cause it to alter its preliminary determination. Therefore, 
for these final results, the Department continues to find that NKK did 
not have any reviewable entries during the POR.

Final Results of Review

    Because the Department received no comments after the Preliminary 
Results for consideration for these final results, we have made no 
changes to the Preliminary Results. As a result of this review, we 
determine that dumping margins on certain small diameter carbon and 
alloy seamless standard, line, and pressure pipe (under 4\1/2\ inches) 
from Japan exist for the period June 1, 2014, through May 31, 2015, at 
the following rates:

Assessment

    The Department has determined, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with the final results of this review.\3\ The Department intends to 
issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of these final results of review. We will instruct CBP to 
apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 106.07 percent to all entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported 
by NSSMC, and an ad valorem assessment rate of 106.07 percent to all 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/
or exported by the companies that were not selected for individual 
examination: JFE, NSC, and SMI.\4\ Additionally, because the Department 
determined that NKK had no shipments of subject merchandise during the 
POR, any suspended entries that entered under NKK's AD case number 
(i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the all-others 
rate effective during the period of review if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.\5\

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; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the 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 
this proceeding for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) if neither 
the exporter nor the manufacturer has its own rate, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be 70.43 percent, the all-others rate established 
in the order.\6\ 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 double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
