These suspension-of-liquidation instructions will remain in effect until further notice. Additionally, Commerce is making no adjustments for export subsidies to the antidumping cash deposit rate in this investigation because we have made no findings in the companion countervailing duty investigation that any of the programs are export subsidies. Disclosure The estimated weighted-average dumping margin assigned to the Chinawide entity in this investigation is based on AFA. As the margin is based on the rate calculated in the Petition, and because we made no changes to this margin since the Preliminary Determination, there are no calculations to disclose for this final determination. International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the International Trade Commission (ITC) of the final affirmative determination of sales at LTFV. Because Commerce’s final determination is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports or sales (or the likelihood of sales) for importation of large diameter welded pipe, no later than 45 days after this final determination. If the ITC determines that such injury does not exist, this proceeding will be terminated, and all cash deposits posted will be refunded. If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:29 Nov 13, 2018 Jkt 247001 of liquidation, as discussed above in the ‘‘Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation’’ section.

BlueScope).\2\ For a detailed description of the events that followed 
the initiation of this review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum,

this notice.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 57705 (December 7, 2017).
    \2\ In the investigation, Commerce found that BlueScope Steel 
Ltd., BlueScope Steel (AIS) Pty Ltd., and BlueScope Steel 
Distribution Pty Ltd. (collectively, BlueScope) are a single entity 
and, because there were no changes to the facts which supported that 
decision since that determination was made, we continue to find that 
these companies are a single entity for this administrative review. 
See Certain Hot-Rolled Steel Flat Products from Australia: Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 81 FR 53406, 53407

Adverse Facts Available

    Because mandatory respondent BlueScope has failed to provide 
requested information and has failed to cooperate by not acting to the 
best of its ability to comply with the requests for information from

otherwise available with an adverse inference (AFA) to this respondent,

351.308. For a complete explanation of the analysis underlying the

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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    The preliminary results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: November 1, 2018.
James Maeder,
Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations performing the duties of Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
