Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 93 / Tuesday, May 16, 2017 / Notices alloy steel (cold-drawn mechanical tubing) of circular cross-section, in actual outside diameters less than 331 mm, and regardless of wall thickness, surface finish, end finish or industry specification. The subject colddrawn mechanical tubing is a tubular product with a circular cross-sectional shape that has been cold-drawn or otherwise coldfinished after the initial tube formation in a manner that involves a change in the diameter or wall thickness of the tubing, or both. The subject cold-drawn mechanical tubing may be produced from either welded (e.g., electric resistance welded, continuous welded, etc.) or seamless (e.g., pierced, pilgered or extruded, etc.) carbon or alloy steel tubular products. It may also be heat treated after cold working. Such heat treatments may include, but are not limited to, annealing, normalizing, quenching and tempering, stress relieving or finish annealing. Typical cold-drawing methods for subject merchandise include, but are not limited to, drawing over mandrel, rod drawing, plug drawing, sink drawing and similar processes that involve reducing the outside diameter of the tubing with a die or similar device, whether or not controlling the inside diameter of the tubing with an internal support device such as a mandrel, rod, plug or similar device. Subject cold-drawn mechanical tubing is typically certified to meet industry specifications for cold-drawn tubing including but not limited to: (1) American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) specifications ASTM A–512, ASTM A–513 Type 3 (ASME SA513 Type 3), ASTM A–513 Type 4 (ASME SA513 Type 4), ASTM A–513 Type 5 (ASME SA513 Type 5), ASTM A–513 Type 6 (ASME SA513 Type 6), ASTM A–519 (cold-finished); (2) SAE International (Society of Automotive Engineers) specifications SAE J524, SAE J525, SAE J2833, SAE J2614, SAE J2467, SAE J2435, SAE J2613; (3) Aerospace Material Specification (AMS) AMS T–6736 (AMS 6736), AMS 6371, AMS 5050, AMS 5075, AMS 5062, AMS 6360, AMS 6361, AMS 6362, AMS 6371, AMS 6372, AMS 6374, AMS 6381, AMS 6415; (4) United States Military Standards (MIL) MIL–T–5066 and MIL–T–6736; (5) foreign standards equivalent to one of the previously listed ASTM, ASME, SAE, AMS or MIL specifications including but not limited to: (a) German Institute for Standardization (DIN) specifications DIN 2391–2, DIN 2393– 2, DIN 2394–2); (b) European Standards (EN) EN 10305–1, EN 10305–2, EN 10305–4, EN 10305–6 and European national variations on those standards (e.g., British Standard (BS EN), Irish Standard (IS EN) and German Standard (DIN EN) variations, etc.); (c) Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) JIS G 3441 and JIS G 3445; and (6) proprietary standards that are based on one of the above-listed standards. The subject cold-drawn mechanical tubing may also be dual or multiple certified to more than one standard. Pipe that is multiple certified as cold-drawn mechanical tubing and to other specifications not covered by VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:42 May 15, 2017 Jkt 241001 this scope, is also covered by the scope of these investigations when it meets the physical description set forth above. Steel products included in the scope of these investigations are products in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; and (2) the carbon content is 2 percent or less by weight. For purposes of this scope, the place of cold-drawing determines the country of origin of the subject merchandise. Subject merchandise that is subject to minor working in a third country that occurs after drawing in one of the subject countries including, but not limited to, heat treatment, cutting to length, straightening, nondestruction testing, deburring or chamfering, remains within the scope of the investigations. All products that meet the written physical description are within the scope of these investigations unless specifically excluded or covered by the scope of an existing order. Merchandise that meets the physical description of cold-drawn mechanical tubing above is within the scope of the investigations even if it is also dual or multiple certified to an otherwise excluded specification listed below. The following products are outside of, and/or specifically excluded from, the scope of these investigations: (1) Cold-drawn stainless steel tubing, containing 10.5 percent or more of chromium by weight and not more than 1.2 percent of carbon by weight; (2) products certified to one or more of the ASTM, ASME or American Petroleum Institute (API) specifications listed below: • ASTM A–53; • ASTM A–106; • ASTM A–179 (ASME SA 179); • ASTM A–192 (ASME SA 192); • ASTM A–209 (ASME SA 209); • ASTM A–210 (ASME SA 210); • ASTM A–213 (ASME SA 213); • ASTM A–334 (ASME SA 334); • ASTM A–423 (ASME SA 423); • ASTM A–498; • ASTM A–496 (ASME SA 496); • ASTM A–199; • ASTM A–500; • ASTM A–556; • ASTM A–565; • API 5L; and • API 5CT except that any cold-drawn tubing product certified to one of the above excluded specifications will not be excluded from the scope if it is also dual- or multiple-certified to any other specification that otherwise would fall within the scope of these investigations.

Rescission in Part

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The 
Department initiated the instant review on January 13, 2017 and the 
petitioners withdrew their request on April 13, 2017, which is within 
the 90-day period and is thus timely. Because the petitioners' 
withdrawal of their requests for review is timely and because no other 
party requested a review of Flex, we are rescinding this review, in 
part, with respect to Flex, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). 
Polyplex did not withdraw its request for review of JBF and Uflex, and 
JBF did not withdraw its request for review of itself. As such, the 
instant review will continue with respect to Uflex and JBF.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess anti-dumping duties on all appropriate entries. Subject 
merchandise of Flex will be assessed antidumping duties at rates equal 
to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the 
time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during 
the period November 1, 2015, through October 31, 2016, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
this notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a reminder to importers for whom this review 
is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
increase in the amount of antidumping duties assessed.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/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 which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19
