Download as PDF 4770 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 33 / Tuesday, February 19, 2019 / Notices Final Results.13 This notice is published in fulfillment of the Timken publication requirements. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court decision, we are amending the Final Results with respect to the dumping margins calculated for Xinboda. Based on the Second Remand Results, as affirmed by the CIT, the revised dumping margin for Xinboda, for the period of review of November 1, 2008, through October 31, 2009, is $0.00 per kilogram. Accordingly, Commerce will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision. In the event the CIT’s ruling is not appealed or, if appealed, upheld on appeal, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate the unliquidated entries of subject merchandise based on the revised dumping margin above. Cash Deposit Requirements Commerce will not update the cash deposit requirements for Xinboda as it has later-determined rates from subsequent administrative reviews.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On October 13, 2015, Commerce published its Final Determination in the AD investigation of WLP from Turkey.1 On December 1, 2015, Commerce published the Order resulting from the investigation.2 As reflected in 1 See Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Turkey: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 80 FR 61362 (October 13, 2015) (Final Determination) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (IDM). 2 See Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Turkey: Antidumping Duty Orders, 80 FR 75056 (December 1, 2015) (Order). PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Commerce’s Final Determination and the Order, Commerce calculated weighted-average dumping margins of 6.66 percent for Tosc¸elik, 22.95 percent for C ¸ ayirova, and 7.10 percent for all others.3 Tosc¸elik and C ¸ ayirova (i.e., the respondents) filed suit at the CIT to challenge various aspects of Commerce’s final determination. On August 22, 2017, the CIT sustained in part, and remanded in part, Commerce’s Final Determination. Specifically, the Court sustained Commerce’s date of sale determination and granted Commerce’s request for a voluntary remand to further explain or reconsider the calculation of the duty drawback adjustments for the respondents.4 On March 1, 2018, Commerce issued the First Remand Redetermination, in which it provided further explanation regarding why Commerce limited the duty drawback adjustments in the Final Determination to information contained only on import certificates (also known as ‘‘DIIBs’’) that were closed during the period of investigation (POI).5 After considering Commerce’s further explanation, on October 24, 2018, the CIT held that Commerce’s limitation of the duty drawback adjustments to information contained only on DIIBs closed during the POI was not reasonable based on the specific record of this case (which contained verified information on DIIBs closed after the POI).6 The Court remanded the case and directed Commerce to recalculate the duty drawback adjustments for Tosc ¸elik and C ¸ ayirova to account for one additional DIIB for each of the respondents.7 On December 7, 2018, Commerce issued the Second Remand Redetermination in accordance with the CIT’s order.8 On remand, Commerce, recalculated the duty drawback adjustments for C ¸ ayirova and Tosc ¸elik 3 See Final Determination, 80 FR at 61364; Order, 80 FR at 75,057.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protections (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with the final results of this review. We will calculate importer-
specific assessment rates 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).
    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each 
respondent 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. We intend to issue 
liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final 
results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise 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 
the respondents noted above will be the rate established in the final 
results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by 
manufacturers or exporters not covered in this administrative 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; (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 recently completed segment of this 
proceeding for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to 
be 11.80 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
investigation.\10\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final 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 the POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely 
written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or 
conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure 
to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a 
sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: February 8, 2019.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
