If the Toscelik Single Entity’s weightedaverage dumping margin is above de minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate an importerspecific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).8 If the Toscelik Single Entity’s weightedaverage dumping margin continues to be zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.9 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the Toscelik Single Entity 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(ies) involved in the transaction.

Preliminary Results of Review

    As a result of this administrative review, we preliminarily 
determine that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for 
the period September 1, 2015, through August 31, 2016:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
             Producer/exporter                 Weighted-average margin

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

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties within 
five days after public announcement of the preliminary results.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See 19 CFR 351.224(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the final results, the Department shall 
determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If the Toscelik Single 
Entity's weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis in the 
final results of this review, we will calculate an importer-specific 
assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
antidumping duties calculated for the importer's examined sales and the 
total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\8\ If the Toscelik Single Entity's weighted-average 
dumping margin continues to be zero or de minimis in the final results 
of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its 
entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for 
Reviews).
    \9\ See Final Modification for Reviews, 77 FR at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the 
Toscelik Single Entity 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(ies) involved in the transaction.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the

[[Page 42287]]

notice of final results of this review for all shipments of OCTG from 
Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the 
Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the Toscelik Single Entity will be 
the rate 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 prior segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (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 recent period for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 35.86 percent,\10\ the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary 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 occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    The Department is issuing and publishing these results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.221(1)(b)(4).

    Dated: August 31, 2017.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
