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of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: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).

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that one company, Agir 
Haddecilik A.S., had no shipments during the POR.\5\ Consistent with 
the Department's assessment practice, the Department completed the 
review with respect to Agir.\6\ For these final results, we continue to 
find that Agir had no shipments during the POR.\7\ As noted in the 
``Assessment'' section below, the Department will issue appropriate 
instructions with respect to this company to CBP based on our final 
results.\8\ In addition, Agir will maintain its dumping margin from the 
most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which it 
participated., i.e., 0.00 percent.\9\

    companies not selected for individual examination (i.e., Cayirova 
Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., Toscelik Metal Ticaret A.S., Toscelik 
Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S., Tosyali Dis Ticaret A.S., Yucelboru 
Ihracat Ithalat ve Pazarlama A.S., and Yucel Boru ve Profil Endustrisi 
A.S.) using the weighted-average dumping margins of the individually-
examined respondents, based on their publicly available, ranged total 
U.S. sales values of the selected respondents. The resulting weighted-
average dumping margin being assigned

to the non-individually examined respondents is 7.22 percent.\10\

Compliance Analyst, AD/CVD Operations, Office IV, Enforcement and 
Compliance to The File ``Final Results of the 2015--2016 Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review of Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube 
from Turkey: Calculation of the Rate for Respondents Not Selected 
for Individual Examination,'' dated concurrently with this notice.

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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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).

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 cash deposit rate for respondents 
noted above will be the rate established in the final results of this 
administrative review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated 
companies not listed above, 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 producer is, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
producer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other producers or exporters will continue to be 27.04 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the investigation.\12\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

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.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders (APO)

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 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.
    This notice of the final results of this antidumping duty 
administrative review is issued and published 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: October 4, 2017.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
