Final Determination Commerce determines that the following estimated countervailable subsidy rates exist: Company Subsidy rate (percent) Hefei Zijin Steel Tube Manufacturing Co ......................................

In accordance with section 703(d) of the Act, we issued instructions to CBP to discontinue the suspension of liquidation for CVD purposes for subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after October 27, 2018, but to continue the suspension of liquidation of all entries from June 29, 2018, through October 26, 2018. If the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) issues a final affirmative injury determination, we will issue a CVD order, reinstate the suspension of liquidation under section 706(a) of the Act, and will require a cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties for such entries of subject merchandise in the amounts indicated above. If the ITC determines that material injury, or threat of material injury, does not exist, this proceeding will be terminated, and all estimated duties deposited or securities posted as a result of the suspension of liquidation will be refunded or canceled. 4 Id.

Where the mandatory respondents did not report entered value, we calculated the entered value in order to calculate the ad valorem assessment rate. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Among the companies under review, three companies, Gazi Metal 
Mamulleri Sanayi Ve Ticaret A.S. (Gazi), Toscelik Profile and Sheet 
Ind. Co. (a.k.a. Toscelik Profil ve Sac endustrisi A.S.) and Tosyali 
Holding A.S. (collectively, Toscelik), and Eregli Demir ve Celik 
Fabrikalari T.A.S. and Iskenderun Iron and Steel Works Ltd. (a.k.a. 
Iskenderun Demir ve Celik A.S.) (collectively, Erdemir), each properly 
filed statements reporting that they made no shipments of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR. Based on the 
certifications submitted and our analysis of Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) information, we preliminarily determine that Gazi, 
Toscelik, and Erdemir had no shipments during the POR.\4\ Consistent 
with its practice, Commerce finds that it is not appropriate to 
preliminarily rescind the review with respect to these companies but, 
rather, to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to 
CBP based on the final results of this review.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated importer-specific 
ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount 
of dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value 
of the sales. Where the mandatory respondents did not report entered 
value, we calculated the entered value in order to calculate the ad 
valorem assessment rate. Where either the respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard 
to antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the weighted-average dumping 
margins calculated for the mandatory respondents. The final results of 
this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties 
on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review 
and for future deposits of estimated antidumping duties, where 
applicable.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 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 each specific 
company listed above will be that established in the final results of 
this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, 
therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in 
which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously 
investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash 
deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the 
most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the company 
participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, 
or the underlying investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment 
for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash

[[Page 56807]]

deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to 
be 6.41 percent, the all-others rate established in the underlying 
investigation.\6\ These 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    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.
