Background mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES On December 1, 2016, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order on welded line pipe from Turkey for the period May 22, 2015, through November 30, 2016.1 In December 2016 and January 2017, the Department received timely requests, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), to conduct an administrative review of this antidumping duty order from Maverick Tube Corporation (Maverick), Stupp Corporation, a division of Stupp Bros., Inc. (Stupp Corp.), and American Cast Iron Pipe Company (ACIPCO) (collectively, the petitioners), and from Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. and Borusan Istikbal Ticaret (collectively, Borusan).2 Based upon these requests, on February 13, 2017, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation listing nineteen companies for which the Department received timely requests for review.3 On March 3 and May 9, 2017, Borusan and the petitioners, respectively, withdrew all requests for an administrative review.4 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 81 FR 86694 (December 1, 2016). 2 See Letters from Maverick and from Stupp Corp. and ACIPCO to the Department, ‘‘Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Turkey: Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated December 30, 2016; see also Letter from Borusan to the Department, ‘‘Welded Line Pipe from Turkey, Case No. A–489– 822: Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated January 3, 2017. 3 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 10457 (February 13, 2017). 4 See Letter from Borusan to the Department, ‘‘Welded Line Pipe from Turkey, Case No. A–489– 822: Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated March 3, 2017; see also Letters from Maverick and from Stupp Corp. and ACIPCO to the Department, ‘‘Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Turkey: Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated May 9, 2017. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 May 31, 2017 Jkt 241001 Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. All the aforementioned withdrawal requests were timely submitted, and no other interested party requested an administrative review of any company. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on welded line pipe from Turkey covering the period May 22, 2015, through November 30, 2016. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a 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 Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders 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 APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. 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 of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: May 24, 2017.

addition, as a result of the ITC's determination that revocation of the 
AD duty order on shrimp from Brazil is not likely to lead to

Continuation of the AD Orders on Shrimp From India, the PRC, Thailand, 
and Vietnam

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC 
that revocation of the AD orders on shrimp from India, the PRC, 
Thailand, and Vietnam would likely lead to a continuation or a 
recurrence of dumping and of material injury to an industry in the 
United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department 
hereby orders the continuation of the AD orders on Shrimp from India, 
the PRC, Thailand, and Vietnam. U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) will continue to collect AD cash deposits at the rates in effect 
at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The 
effective date of the continuation of the orders will be the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. 
Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to 
initiate the next five-year review of these orders not later than 30 
days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of 
continuation.
