Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From Turkey: Final Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; Calendar Year 2015, 47479-47481 [2017-22069]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 196 / Thursday, October 12, 2017 / Notices to the non-individually examined respondents is 7.22 percent.10 Disclosure The Department intends to disclose the calculations performed for these final results of review within five days of the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Assessment Rates The Department shall determine and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.11 The Department calculated importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales of each importer and dividing each of these amounts by the total entered value associated with those sales. The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review where an importer-specific assessment rate is not zero or de minimis. Pursuant to the Final Modification for Reviews, we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis. Additionally, because the Department determined that Agir Haddecilik A.S. had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under the company’s case numbers (i.e., at the company’s rate) will be liquidated at the all-others rate effective during the period of review, consistent with the Department’s practice. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES 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of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The 10 See Memorandum from Jonathan Hill, International Trade Compliance Analyst, AD/CVD Operations, Office IV, Enforcement and Compliance to The File ‘‘Final Results of the 2015—2016 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of LightWalled Rectangular Pipe and Tube from Turkey: Calculation of the Rate for Respondents Not Selected for Individual Examination,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. 11 In these final 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 Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).

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 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. 47479 Dated: October 4, 2017.

Scope of Order The products covered by this order are certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more, but not over 16 inches, of any wall thickness (pipe and tube) from Turkey. These products are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings as 7306.30.10, 7306.30.50, and 7306.90.10.

In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/ index.html. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable during the POR, we determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that confers a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.2 For a complete description of the methodology underlying all of the Department’s conclusions, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Results of Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated an individual subsidy rate for the mandatory respondents, the Borusan Companies and the Toscelik Companies. The subsidy rate calculated for the Borusan Companies is de minimis. As discussed in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum, it is the Department’s practice to calculate a rate for companies that are not individually examined by averaging the weightedaverage net subsidy rates for the individually-reviewed companies, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.

pipe and tube with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more, but not 
over 16 inches, of any wall thickness (pipe and tube) from Turkey. 
These products are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff

and hereby adopted by these final results (Issues and Decision 
Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found 
countervailable during the POR, we determine that there is a subsidy, 
i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that confers a 
benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.\2\ For a 
complete description of the methodology underlying all of the 
Department's conclusions, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding 
financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated an 
individual subsidy rate for the mandatory respondents, the Borusan 
Companies and the Toscelik Companies. The subsidy rate calculated for 
the Borusan Companies is de minimis. As discussed in the accompanying 
Issues and Decision Memorandum, it is the Department's practice to 
calculate a rate for companies that are not individually examined by 
averaging the weighted-average net subsidy rates for the individually-
reviewed companies, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based 
entirely on facts available. Because only the Toscelik Companies 
received an above-de minimis net subsidy rate, and this rate is not 
based entirely on facts available, for the companies for which a review 
was requested that were not individually examined as mandatory 
respondents, i.e., Erbosan, Guven, Umran, and the Yucel Companies, we 
assigned the subsidy rate calculated for the Toscelik Companies. As a 
result of this review, we determine the listed net subsidy rates for 
January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2015:
