The final weighted-average dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the section entitled, ‘‘Final Results of the Review.’’ DATES: Applicable November 20, 2017. nshattuck on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:15 Nov 17, 2017 Jkt 244001 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Scott Hoefke, AD/CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4947. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On May 18, 2017, the Department published the Preliminary Results of this review in the Federal Register.1 We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On June 19, 2017, we received a case brief from Wheatland Tube Group (the petitioner).2 On June 26, 2017, we received a rebuttal brief from Shin Yang.3 The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Taiwan. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, and 7306.30.5055. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description remains dispositive.4 Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined that Yieh Hsing had no shipments during the period of review (POR).5 Following publication of the Preliminary Results, we received no comments from interested parties regarding Yieh Hsing.

For Shin Yang, because its weightedaverage dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), the Department has calculated importerspecific antidumping duty assessment rates. We 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. We 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 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), 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. As noted in the ‘‘Final Determination of No Shipments’’ section, above, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by Yieh Hsing but exported by other parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results of this review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the company was reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a previous review, or the original less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of subject merchandise; and (4) the cash VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:15 Nov 17, 2017 Jkt 244001 deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 9.70 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.7 These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice 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 Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3).

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final 
results of review within five days of the date of

[[Page 55094]]

publication of this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review pursuant to 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    For Shin Yang, because its weighted-average dumping margin is not 
zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), the Department has 
calculated importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates. We 
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. We 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 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), 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.
    As noted in the ``Final Determination of No Shipments'' section, 
above, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing 
entries of merchandise produced by Yieh Hsing but exported by other 
parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at 
the all-others rate.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results 
of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the 
Act: (1) The cash deposit rates will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margins established in the final results of this review; (2) 
for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in 
this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding in which the company was reviewed; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review, a previous review, or the original 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 9.70 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\7\ These deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable 
violation.
