Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial Federal Government closure from December 22, 2018, through the resumption of operations on January 29, 2019.4 If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with Commerce’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day. In this case, the original deadline for parties to withdraw requests for administrative review of January 2, 2019, was extended prior to the partial Federal Government closure to January 9, 2019.5 Therefore, the revised deadline to withdraw a review request was February 19, 2019. Because the petitioner’s request for administrative review of TMK-Artrom was withdrawn within 90 days of the date of publication of the Initiation Notice (as extended and tolled, per the discussion above), and no other interested party requested a review of this company, Commerce is rescinding this review with respect to TMKArtrom, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The administrative review remains active with respect to all other companies initiated for review, i.e., ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Roman S.A.; SC Tubinox S.A.; and Silcotub S.A.

Administrative Review; 2017-2018

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is rescinding the 
administrative review, in part, of the antidumping duty order on carbon 
and alloy seamless standard, line and pressure pipe (under 4.5 inches) 
(small diameter seamless pipe) from Romania for the period August 1, 
2017 through July 31, 2018.

DATES: Applicable March 4, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Katherine Johnson or Samantha Kinney,

or 202-482-2285 respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On October 4, 2018, based on a timely request for review of four 
companies by United States Steel Corporation (the petitioner),\1\ 
Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on small diameter 
seamless pipe from Romania covering the period August 1, 2017, through 
July 31, 2018.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Petitioner's Letter, ``Carbon and Alloy Seamless 
Standard Line, and Pressure Pipe (Under 4.5 Inches) from Romania: 
Request for Administrative Review of Antidumping Duty Order,'' dated 
August 30, 2018.
    \2\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 83 FR 50077 (October 4, 2018) (Initiation 
Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On February 13, 2019, the petitioner withdrew its request for 
administrative review of SC TMK-Artrom S.A. (TMK-Artrom).\3\ No other 
interested parties requested an administrative review of this company.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Petitioner's Letter, ``Carbon and Alloy Seamless 
Standard Line, and Pressure Pipe (Under 4.5 Inches) from Romania: 
Partial Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review of 
Antidumping Duty Order,'' dated February 13, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of 
the notice of initiation of the requested review. Commerce exercised 
its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial Federal 
Government closure from December 22, 2018, through the resumption of 
operations on January 29, 2019.\4\ If the new deadline falls on a non-
business day, in accordance with Commerce's practice, the deadline will 
become the next business day. In this case, the original deadline for 
parties to withdraw requests for administrative review of January 2, 
2019, was extended prior to the partial Federal Government closure to 
January 9, 2019.\5\ Therefore, the revised deadline to withdraw a 
review request was February 19, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Memorandum, ``Deadlines Affected by the Partial Shutdown 
of the Federal Government,'' dated January 28, 2019. All deadlines 
in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by 40 days.
    \5\ See Commerce Letter re: Request for Extension, dated 
December 21, 2018.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because the petitioner's request for administrative review of TMK-
Artrom was withdrawn within 90 days of the date of publication of the 
Initiation Notice (as extended and tolled, per the discussion above), 
and no other interested party requested a review of this company, 
Commerce is rescinding this review with respect to TMK-Artrom, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The administrative review remains 
active with respect to all other companies initiated for review, i.e., 
ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Roman S.A.; SC Tubinox S.A.; and 
Silcotub S.A.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries at a rate equal to 
the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time 
of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the 
period August 1, 2017, through July 31, 2018, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the 
Federal Register, if appropriate.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final 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

[[Page 7346]]

during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement 
could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement of the 
antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. 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 
terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(4).
