Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    On August 2, 2017, Atlas Tube and Searing Industries (collectively, 
the petitioners) timely withdrew their request for an administrative 
review of each of the companies for which they had requested a review, 
except for Agir. On September 7, 2017, Noksel timely withdrew its 
request for an administrative review of itself. No other parties 
requested a review of the companies for which the petitioners and 
Noksel timely withdrew their review requests. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole 
or in part, if the party or parties that requested a review withdraws 
the request within 90 days of the publication date of the notice of 
initiation of the requested review. Therefore, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce is rescinding this review of the AD order 
on LWRPT from Turkey with respect to Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi 
A.S., Toscelik Metal Ticaret A.S., Tosyali Dis Ticaret A.S., Noksel 
Celik Boru Sanayi A.S., Yucel Boru ve Profil Endustrisi A.S., Yucelboru

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department preliminarily determines the weighted-average 
dumping margin for Agir for the period May 1, 2016, through April 30, 
2017, as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                            Weighted-
                 Manufacturer/exporter                    average margin
                                                            (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Agir Haddecilik A.S....................................            0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce will determine, and 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We 
will calculate importer-specific assessment rates equal to the ratio of 
the total amount of dumping calculated for examined sales with a 
particular importer to the total entered value of the sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where the respondent's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. 
The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment 
of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise under review and for 
future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.
    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the 
respondent for which it did not know that 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 instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of LWRPT from Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication of the notice of 
the final results of this administrative review, as provided for by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Agir 
will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the 
final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de 
minimis, no cash deposit will be required); (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 recently completed segment of this proceeding in 
which the manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-than-
fair-value investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established in the most recently completed 
segment of the proceeding for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and 
(4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 27.04 percent ad valorem, the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\3\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    These preliminary results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: February 5, 2018.
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.
