SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    This review covers three producers/exporters of the subject 
merchandise, Golden Dragon,\1\ Nacobre, and IUSA. On December 12, 2016, 
the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary 
results of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
seamless refined copper pipe and tube from Mexico.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Department previously treated GD Affiliates S. de R.L. 
de C.V. as part of a single entity including: (1) GD Copper 
Cooperatief U.A.; (2) Hong Kong GD Trading Co. Ltd.; (3) Golden 
Dragon Holding (Hong Kong) International, Ltd.; (4) GD Copper U.S.A. 
Inc.; (5) GD Affiliates Servicios S. de R.L. de C.V.; and (6) GD 
Affiliates S. de R.L. de C.V., which is collectively referred to as 
Golden Dragon. See, e.g., Seamless Refined Copper Pipe and Tube from

59178 (September 26, 2012), and accompanying Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2014-
2015, 81 FR 89434 (December 12, 2016) (Preliminary Results), and 
accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. No 
interested party submitted comments. As a result, the final results do 
not differ from the Preliminary Results. We continue to find that sales 
of subject merchandise by Golden Dragon and Nacobre were made at prices 
less than normal value during the POR. We continue to find that IUSA 
had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. The Department 
conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751(a) 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order 3

the People's Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Orders and Amended 
Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value From Mexico, 75 
FR 71070 (November 22, 2010) (Amended Final and Order).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The merchandise subject to the order is seamless refined copper 
pipe and tube. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7411.10.1030 
and 7411.10.1090, and also may enter under HTSUS subheadings 
7407.10.1500, 7419.99.5050, 8415.90.8065, and 8415.90.8085. Although 
the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the written product description, available in the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum,\4\ remains dispositive.

the Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 3, which can be accessed 
directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, the Department received a 
claim of no shipments from IUSA. Based on the results of our U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data query to determine whether 
there were any entries of subject merchandise during the POR from IUSA, 
for the final results, the Department continues to find that IUSA did 
not have any reviewable entries during the POR.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ For a full explanation of the Department's analysis, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    The Department determines that the following weighted-average 
dumping margins exist for entries of subject merchandise that were 
produced and/or exported by the following companies during the POR:

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with the final results of this review.\6\ We intend to instruct CBP to 
liquidate entries of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by 
the aforementioned companies. In accordance with the Department's 
``automatic assessment'' practice, for entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR produced by Golden Dragon or Nacobre for which they did 
not know their merchandise was destined for the United States, we 
intend to instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-
others rate.\7\ Additionally, because the Department determined that 
IUSA had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, any 
suspended entries that entered under IUSA'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.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b).

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

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

    The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 41 
days after the date of publication of these final results of review, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 356.8(a).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of these final results for all shipments of 
seamless refined copper pipe and tube from Mexico entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date as 
provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for 
the reviewed companies will be the rates 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 
completed 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 Amended Final and Order. These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), this notice also serves as 
a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) 
of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of 
proprietary information disclosed under the APO, which continues to 
govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. 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 violation subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We intend to issue and publish 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)(5).
