An electronically-filed document must be received successfully in its entirety by ACCESS by 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.10 Hearing requests should contain: (1) The party’s name, address, and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues to be discussed. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be notified of the time and date for the hearing to be held at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230.11 The Department intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, no later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), unless this deadline is extended. Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.12 Golden Dragon and Nacobre reported the names of the importers of record and the entered value for all of their sales to the United States during the POR. If Golden Dragon’s and Nacobre’s weighted-average dumping margins are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate importer-specific 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 sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), and we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. In accordance with the Department’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Golden Dragon 10 See PO 00000 19 CFR 351.212(b). Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 and Nacobre for which they did not know their merchandise was 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 intermediary involved in the transaction.13 Further, if we continue to find in the final results that IUSA had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any suspended entries that entered under its antidumping duty case number at the all-others rate. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 41 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of seamless refined copper pipe and tube from Mexico entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for Golden Dragon and Nacobre will be equal to the weightedaverage dumping margins established in the final results of this administrative 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; (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 recentlycompleted segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 26.03 percent, the all-others rate established in the Order. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary 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.

notice.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Among the companies under review, IUSA properly filed a statement 
reporting that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the 
United States during the POR.\3\ Because U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) did not provide any information contradicting IUSA's 
claim to have made no shipments, the Department

[[Page 89435]]

preliminarily determines that IUSA did not have any reviewable 
transactions during the POR. Consistent with our practice, we are not 
preliminarily rescinding the review with respect to IUSA but, rather, 
we will complete the review with respect to this company and issue 
appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this 
review.\4\

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the 
issues raised in any written briefs, no later than 120 days after the 
date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), unless this deadline is extended.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review.\12\ Golden Dragon and Nacobre reported the 
names of the importers of record and the entered value for all of their 
sales to the United States during the POR. If Golden Dragon's and 
Nacobre's weighted-average dumping margins are not zero or de minimis 
(i.e., less than 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we 
will calculate importer-specific 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 sales in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), and we will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. 
Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero 
or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de 
minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.

    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with the Department's ``automatic assessment'' 
practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Golden Dragon and Nacobre for which they did not know their merchandise 
was 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 
intermediary involved in the transaction.\13\ Further, if we continue 
to find in the final results that IUSA had no shipments of subject 
merchandise during the POR, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any 
suspended entries that entered under its antidumping duty case number 
at the all-others rate.

Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 41 days after the 
publication date of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of seamless refined copper pipe and tube from Mexico 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) 
The cash deposit rates for Golden Dragon and Nacobre will be equal to 
the weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results 
of this administrative 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; (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 for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 26.03 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
Order. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary 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

[[Page 89436]]

occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h) and 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: December 5, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary, for Enforcement and Compliance.
