Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube From Turkey: Preliminary 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2015-2016

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on light-walled 
rectuangular pipe and tube (LWRPT) from Turkey. The period of review 
(POR) is May 1, 2015, through April 30, 2016. This administrative 
review covers nine exporters of the subject merchandise, including two 
mandatory respondents, Cinar Boru Profil Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (CINAR) 
and Noksel Celik Boru Sanayi A.S. (Noksel). The Department 
preliminarily determines that CINAR and Noksel made sales of subject 
merchandise at less than normal value during the POR. Interested 
parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Effective June 6, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the antidumping order is certain welded 
carbon quality light-walled steel pipe and tube, of rectangular 
(including square) cross section, having a wall thickness of less than 
4 millimeters from Turkey. The merchandise subject to the order is 
classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at 
subheadings 7306.61.50.00 and 7306.61.70.60. For a full description of 
the scope of the order, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\1\

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price 
and constructed export price are calculated in accordance with section 
772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section

our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\2\ Further, a

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department preliminarily determines that weighted-average 
dumping margins exist for the respondents for the period May 1, 2015, 
through April 30, 2016, as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             Weighted-
                  Manufacturer/exporter                   average margin

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

    For the rate for non-selected respondents in an administrative 
review, generally, the Department looks to section 735(c)(5) of the 
Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in 
a market economy investigation. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, 
the all-others rate is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted-
average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established 
for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any 
zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the 
basis of facts available{time} .'' With two respondents, we normally 
calculate (A) a weighted-average of the dumping margins calculated for 
the mandatory respondents; (B) a simple average of the dumping margins 
calculated for the mandatory respondents; and (C) a weighted-average of 
the dumping margins calculated for the mandatory respondents using each 
company's publicly-ranged values for the merchandise under 
consideration. We compare (B) and (C) to (A) and select the rate 
closest to (A) as the most appropriate rate for all other companies.\3\ 
Accordingly, we have applied a rate of 4.87 percent to the non-selected 
companies, as set forth in the chart above.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, 
Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Reviews, Final Results of Changed-Circumstances 
Review, and Revocation of an Order in Part, 75 FR 53661, 53663 
(September 1, 2010).
    \4\ See Memorandum from Jonathan Hill, International Trade 
Compliance Analyst, AD/CVD Operations, Office IV, Enforcement and 
Compliance to the File, ``Calculation of the Rate for Non-Selected 
Respondents,'' dated May 31, 2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 
15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
review.
    For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), we will 
calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\5\ For entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent for which it did 
not know its 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 intermediate company involved in the 
transaction.\6\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-
specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review 
is above de minimis. 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation methodology adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
    \6\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of LWRPT from Turkey entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the companies 
under review will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is 
zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will be required); (2) for

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 double antidumping duties.
    These preliminary results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).
