Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On July 21, 2017, Yieh Hsing reported that it made no shipments of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.\8\ To confirm 
Yieh Hsing's claim of no shipments, Commerce issued an inquiry to CBP, 
requesting that it review Yieh Hsing's no-shipment claim.\9\ CBP did 
not report that it had any information to contradict Yieh Hsing's claim 
of no shipments during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Yieh Hsing's Letter, ``Certain Circular Welded Carbon 
Steel Pipes and Tubes from Taiwan; No Shipment Certification,'' 
dated July 21, 2017.
    \9\ See ``No Shipments Inquiry for Certain Circular Welded 
Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Taiwan Produced and/or Exported by 
Yieh Hsing (A-583-008-003),'' message number 7264308 (September 21, 
2017).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Given that Yieh Hsing certified that it made no shipments of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, and there is 
no information calling its claim into question, we preliminarily 
determine that Yieh Hsing did not have any reviewable transactions 
during the POR. Consistent with Commerce's practice, we will not 
rescind the review with respect to Yieh Hsing but, rather, will 
complete the review and issue instructions to CBP based on the final 
results.\10\

    Unless otherwise extended, Commerce intends to issue the final 
results of this administrative review, including the results of its 
analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 
days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We intend to issue 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final 
results of this review.
    If the weighted-average dumping margin for Shin Yang is not zero or 
de minimis in the final results, then Commerce will calculate importer-
specific assessment rates. Because Shin Yang did not report the entered 
value of its sales, we will calculate importer-specific per-unit 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 quantity (i.e., weight) associated with those 
sales. To determine whether the importer-specific per-unit assessment 
rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 
19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem 
rates based on estimated entered values. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to 
antidumping duties all entries for which the importer-specific ad 
valorem rate is zero or de minimis.
    With respect to Yieh Hsing, if we continue to find that Yieh Hsing 
had no shipments of subject merchandise in the final results, we 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.\17\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the 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)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Shin Yang 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 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash 
deposit rate will be zero; (2) for other manufacturers and

[[Page 27313]]

exporters 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 
that manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not 
a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-
than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, then 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 in 
the LTFV investigation.\18\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notifications

    This notice also 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.

    Dated: June 4, 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.
