Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is seamless refined copper pipe and tube. The product is currently classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 7411.10.1030 and 7411.10.1090. Products subject to this order may also enter under HTSUS item numbers 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 description of the scope of this order remains dispositive.11 Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Act. Export prices and constructed export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see Issues and Decision Memorandum.12 The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS).

The signed paper copy and electronic version of the Issues and 27689 Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made the following revisions to the margin calculation for the Hailiang Single Entity: • We revised our calculation of the inland freight (i.e., truck freight) surrogate value; 13 • We revised the calculation of packing labor; 14 • We revised the calculation of the recycled copper by-product; 15 • We revised the calculation of cathode copper; 16 and • We corrected the date of sale variable.17 Final Results of Administrative Review We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the POR: Weightedaverage dumping margins (percent) Exporter Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group, Inc./Golden Dragon Holding (Hong Kong) International Co., Ltd./Hong Kong GD Trading Co., Ltd./Shanghai Longyang Precise Copper Compound Copper Tube Co., Ltd./Jiangsu Canghuan Copper Industry Co., Ltd./Guangdong Longfeng Precise Copper Tube Co., Ltd./Wuxi Jinlong Chuancun Precise Copper Tube Co., Ltd./ Longkou Longpeng Precise Copper Tube Co., Ltd./Xinxiang Longxiang Precise Copper Tube Co., Ltd./Coaxian Ailun Metal Processing Co., Ltd./Chonqing Longyu Precise Copper Tube Co., Ltd ..........................................................................................

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. For the companies listed above, which comprise the GD Single Entity and the Hailiang Single Entity, the weighted-average dumping margins are zero. Therefore, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries for these companies without regard to antidumping duties. For the PRC-wide entity, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate all appropriate entries at an assessment rate for antidumping duties equal to the weighted-average dumping margin listed above in the Final Results of Administrative Review section.

SUMMARY: On December 14, 2016, the Department of Commerce (the 
Department) published in the Federal Register the preliminary results 
of the 2014-2015 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
seamless refined copper pipe and tube from the People's Republic of

invited parties to comment on our preliminary results. Based on our 
analysis of the comments received, we made certain changes to the 
margin calculation for the Hailiang Single Entity. Interested parties 
did not comment on our margin calculation for the GD Single Entity, and 
we continue to find that the GD Single Entity did not sell subject 
merchandise in the United States at less than normal value during the 
POR. The final weighted-average dumping margins for this review are 
listed in the ``Final Results of Administrative Review'' section, 
below.

Final Results of Administrative Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins 
exist for the POR:

    Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity and the 
Department no longer considers the PRC-wide entity as an exporter 
conditionally subject to administrative reviews,\18\ we did not conduct 
a review of the PRC-wide entity. Thus, the weighted-average dumping 
margin for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 60.85 percent) \19\ is not 
subject to change as a result of this review.

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of 
subject merchandise covered by this review. The Department intends to 
issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date 
of the final results of this review.
    For the companies listed above, which comprise the GD Single Entity 
and the Hailiang Single Entity, the weighted-average dumping margins 
are zero. Therefore, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries for these companies without regard to antidumping duties.
    For the PRC-wide entity, the Department will instruct CBP to 
liquidate all appropriate entries at an assessment rate for antidumping 
duties equal to the weighted-average dumping margin listed above in the 
Final Results of Administrative Review section.
    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases 
submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the 
Department will

[[Page 27690]]

instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide rate.\20\

    \20\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 cash deposits of 
estimated antidumping duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
identified above, the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for 
previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not 
listed above that received a separate rate in a previously completed 
segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the existing exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not 
been found to be entitled a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will 
be that for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 60.85 percent); and (4) for all 
non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their 
own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final 
results within five days of the date of publication of this notice in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    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 doubled antidumping duties.

Notifications to All Parties

    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 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 which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: June 12, 2017.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
