Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the final results, Commerce shall determine and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries. If Y[uuml]cel's weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis in the final results of this review, 
we will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of 
the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for each 
importer's examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If Y[uuml]cel's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we 
will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in 
accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Y[uuml]cel for which it did not know 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.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual 
examination, [Ccedil]ayirova Boru San A.[Scedil]., HG Tubulars Canada 
Ltd., and Y[uuml]celboru [Idot]hracat, Ithalat, we will instruct CBP to 
apply the rates listed above to all entries of subject merchandise 
produced and/or exported by these firms.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of OCTG from Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by 
section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for companies 
subject to this review will be the rates established in the final 
results of the review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers 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 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; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 35.86 percent,\8\ the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation, adjusted for the 
export-subsidy rate established in the companion countervailing duty 
investigation. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221.

    Dated: June 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.
