Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation, in Part published in accordance with sections 516A(e) and 706(a) of the Act. In accordance with section 705(c)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department has instructed CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant entries of OCTG from Turkey.13 These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. However, because the revised countervailable subsidy rate for Toscelik ¸ is de minimis, the Department is directing CBP to liquidate all entries produced and exported by Toscelik ¸ currently suspended without regard to countervailing duties, and to discontinue the suspension of liquidation of entries of subject merchandise where Toscelik acted as ¸ both the producer and exporter. Entries of subject merchandise exported to the United States by any other producer and exporter combination involving Toscelik are not entitled to this ¸ exclusion from suspension of liquidation and are subject to the cash deposit rate for the ‘‘all others’’ entity. Because the net countervailable subsidy rate determined for Toscelik is ¸ de minimis, consistent with the requirement under section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act that the calculation of the ‘‘all others’’ rate excludes zero or de minimis rates calculated for the companies individually investigated, the Department revised the ‘‘all others’’ rate.14 Therefore, for purposes of the amended CVD order with respect OCTG from Turkey, the ‘‘all others’’ cash deposit rate is amended to Borusan’s revised calculated subsidy rate of 2.39 percent.

APPENDIX Scope of the Antidumping Duty Orders India—Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube (A–533–502) The products covered by the order include certain welded carbon steel standard pipes and tubes with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more but not over 16 inches. These products are commonly referred to in the industry as standard pipes and tubes produced to various American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) specifications, most notably A–53, A–120, or A–135. The antidumping duty order on certain welded carbon steel standard pipes and tubes from India, published on May 12, 1986, included standard scope language which used the import classification system as defined by Tariff Schedules of the United States, Annotated (TSUSA). The United States developed a system of tariff classification based on the international harmonized system of customs nomenclature. On January 1, 1989, the U.S. tariff schedules were fully converted from the TSUSA to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS).

Those pipes and tubes are generally known as standard pipe, though they may also be called structural or mechanical tubing in certain applications. Standard pipes and tubes are intended for the low pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, air, and other liquids and gases in plumbing and heating systems, air conditioner units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other related uses. Standard pipe may also be used for light load-bearing and mechanical applications, such as for fence tubing, and for protection of electrical wiring, such as conduit shells. The scope is not limited to standard pipe and fence tubing, or those types of mechanical and structural pipe that are used in standard pipe applications. All carbon steel pipes and tubes within the physical description outlined above are included in the scope of this order, except for line pipe, oil country tubular goods, boiler tubing, colddrawn or cold-rolled mechanical tubing, pipe and tube hollows for redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished rigid conduit. Imports of these products are currently classifiable under the following Harmonized 6 Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 64696 (October 20, 2010). 7 There was one scope ruling in which British Standard light pipe 387/67, Class A–1 was found to be within the scope of the order per remand.

Certain Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From India, Thailand, 
and Turkey: Final Results of the Expedited Fourth Sunset Reviews of the 
Antidumping Duty Orders

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: As a result of this sunset review, the Department of Commerce 
(the Department) finds that revocation of the antidumping duty (AD) 
orders on certain welded carbon steel pipes and tubes (pipes and tubes) 
from India, Thailand, and Turkey would likely lead to a continuation or 
recurrence of dumping. Further, the magnitude of the margins of dumping 
that are likely to prevail are identified in the ``Final Results of 
Review'' section of this notice.

DATES: Applicable October 5, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Catherine Cartsos or Minoo Hatten, AD/

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In 1986, the Department published the AD orders on pipes and tubes 
from India, Thailand, and Turkey.\1\ On June 2, 2017, the Department 
published the notice of initiation of the fourth sunset review of the 
AD orders on pipes and tubes pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\2\

The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under 
section 771(9)(C) of the Act as producers in the United States of the

responses to the Initiation from the domestic interested parties within 
the 30-day period, as specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).\3\ We 
received no substantive responses from respondent interested parties. 
As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department is conducting expedited (120-
day) sunset reviews of the AD orders on pipe and tube from India, 
Thailand, and Turkey.

    Pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act,

    The antidumping duty order on certain welded carbon steel 
standard pipes and tubes from India, published on May 12, 1986, 
included standard scope language which used the import 
classification system as defined by Tariff Schedules of the United 
States, Annotated (TSUSA). The United States developed a system of 
tariff classification based on the international harmonized system 
of customs nomenclature. On January 1, 1989, the U.S. tariff 
schedules were fully converted from the TSUSA to the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule (HTS). See, e.g., Certain Welded Carbon Steel 
Standard Pipes and Tubes from India; Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 56 FR 26650, 26651 (June 
10, 1991). As a result of this transition, the scope language we 
used in the 1991 Federal Register notice is slightly different from 
the scope language of the original final determination and 
antidumping duty order.
    Until January 1, 1989, such merchandise was classifiable under 
item numbers 610.3231, 610.3234, 610.3241, 610.3242, 610.3243, 
610.3252, 610.3254, 610.3256, 610.3258, and 610.4925 of the TSUSA. 
This merchandise is currently classifiable under HTS item numbers

Turkey--Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube (A-489-501)

    The products covered by this order include circular welded non-
alloy steel pipes and tubes, of circular cross-section, not more 
than 406.4 millimeters (16 inches) in outside diameter, regardless 
of wall thickness, surface finish (black, or galvanized, painted), 
or end finish (plain end, beveled end, threaded and coupled). Those 
pipes and tubes are generally known as standard pipe, though they 
may also be called structural or mechanical tubing in certain 
applications. Standard pipes and tubes are intended for the low 
pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, air, and other 
liquids and gases in plumbing and heating systems, air conditioner 
units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other related uses. Standard 
pipe may also be used for light load-bearing and mechanical 
applications, such as for fence tubing, and for protection of 
electrical wiring, such as conduit shells.
    The scope is not limited to standard pipe and fence tubing, or 
those types of mechanical and structural pipe that are used in 
standard pipe applications. All carbon steel pipes and tubes within 
the physical description outlined above are included in the scope of 
this order, except for line pipe, oil country tubular goods, boiler 
tubing, cold-drawn or cold-rolled mechanical tubing, pipe and tube 
hollows for redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished rigid 
conduit.
    Imports of these products are currently classifiable under the 
following Harmonized
