SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 27, 2019, Commerce published its affirmative final determination in the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation of large diameter welded pipe from Turkey.1 The scope of the investigation in Commerce’s final determination covered large diameter welded carbon and alloy steel line pipe (welded line pipe), large diameter welded carbon and alloy steel structural pipe (welded structural pipe), and stainless steel large diameter welded pipe (stainless steel pipe) from Turkey.2 As discussed below, the ITC subsequently found three domestic like products covered by the scope of the investigation (welded line pipe, welded structural pipe, and stainless steel pipe) and, accordingly, made a separate injury determination with respect to each domestic like product. On April 15, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination, pursuant to section 735(d) of the Act, that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, by reason of LTFV imports of welded line pipe and welded structural pipe from Turkey.3 Additionally, the ITC made a negligibility determination with respect to stainless steel pipe.4 Commerce released draft revised scope language for comment by parties.5 No party objected to the revised scope language in this proceeding. Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are welded line pipe and welded structural pipe from Turkey. For a complete description of the scope of this order, see the Appendix to this notice. 1 See Large Diameter Welded Pipe from the Republic of Turkey: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 84 FR 6362 (February 27, 2019). 2 Id. 3 See ITC Notification Letter regarding ITC Investigation Nos. 701–TA–595–596 and 731–TA– 1401, 1403, 1405–1406, dated April 15, 2019 (ITC Notification); see also Large Diameter Welded Pipe from Canada, Greece, Korea, and Turkey; Determinations, 84 FR 16533 (April 19, 2019) (ITC Final Determination); and Large Diameter Welded Pipe from Canada, Greece, Korea, and Turkey, Investigation Nos. 701–TA–595–596 and 731–TA– 1401, 1403, 1405–1406 (Final), Publication 4883, April 2019 (Final ITC Report). 4 See ITC Notification. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Comments on the Scope of the Orders,’’ dated April 5, 2019.

In addition, because these margins are the basis for the estimated weighted average dumping margin determined for all other Turkish producers and exporters of subject merchandise, we also are revising the ‘‘all-others’’ rate in the Final Determination.7 The amended estimated weighted average dumping margins are listed in the Suspension of Liquidation section below. Antidumping Duty Order On April 15, 2019, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination in this investigation, in which it found that imports of welded line pipe and welded structural pipe from Turkey are materially injuring a U.S. industry.8 As a result, and in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act, we are publishing this antidumping duty order. As noted above, in its determination, the ITC found three domestic like products covered by the scope of the investigation: welded line pipe, welded structural pipe, and stainless steel pipe. The ITC found that that imports of stainless steel pipe from Turkey are negligible. The ITC made affirmative determinations with respect to welded line pipe and welded structural pipe from Turkey. Because the ITC made distinct and different injury determinations for separate domestic like products, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on entries of welded line pipe and welded structural pipe (subject merchandise) 6 See section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f). 7 See ‘‘Memorandum, ‘‘Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of Large Diameter Welded Pipe from the Republic of Turkey: Allegation of Ministerial Errors in the Final Determination,’’ dated April 1, 2019. 8 See ITC Notification; and ITC Final Determination.

Welded Line Pipe The Final ITC Report describes welded line pipe as a tubular product produced from carbon and alloy steel, produced to American Petroleum Institute (API) 5L specifications, and designed for conveying liquids and gases.9 Because the ITC determined that LTFV imports of welded line pipe from Turkey are materially injuring a U.S. industry,10 all unliquidated entries of subject merchandise from Turkey, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties, as described below. As a result of the ITC Final Determination, in accordance with section 736(a) of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise for all relevant entries of welded line pipe from Turkey. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of welded line pipe from Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 27, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination,11 but will not be assessed on entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period, beginning on February 23, 2019, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, until the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination in the Federal Register. Welded Structural Pipe The Final ITC Report describes welded structural pipe as a tubular product produced from carbon and alloy steel, produced to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications, and designed for support in construction projects and piling.12 Because the ITC determined that LTFV imports of welded structural pipe from Turkey are materially injuring a U.S. industry,13 all unliquidated entries of subject merchandise from Turkey, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties, as described below. As a result of the ITC Final Determination, in accordance with section 736(a) of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties for all relevant entries of welded structural pipe from Turkey. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of welded structural pipe from Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 27, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination,14 but will not be assessed on entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period, beginning on February 23, 2019, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, until the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination in the Federal Register. Stainless Steel Pipe The Final ITC Report describes stainless steel pipe as being produced from stainless steel for its high-chrome chemistry and corrosion-resistant properties.15 Because the ITC determined that imports of stainless steel pipe from Turkey are negligible,16 Commerce will direct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation for entries of stainless steel pipe from Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, and to refund all cash deposits with respect to these entries pursuant to section 735(c)(2) of the Act. Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 736 of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP to reinstitute the suspension of liquidation of subject merchandise (i.e., welded line pipe and welded structural pipe) from Turkey, effective the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination in the Federal Register, and to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce pursuant to section 736(a)(1) of the Act, antidumping duties for each entry of the subject merchandise equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise. We intend to instruct CBP to require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated import duties on this merchandise, cash deposits for each entry of subject merchandise equal to the rates noted below. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. For the purpose of determining cash deposit rates, the estimated weighted average dumping margins for imports of subject merchandise from Turkey have been adjusted, as appropriate, for export subsidies found in the final determination of the companion countervailing duty investigation of this merchandise imported from Turkey.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 27, 2019, Commerce published its affirmative final 
determination in the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation of large 
diameter welded pipe from Turkey.\1\ The scope of the investigation in 
Commerce's final determination covered large diameter welded carbon and 
alloy steel line pipe (welded line pipe), large diameter welded carbon 
and alloy steel structural pipe (welded structural pipe), and stainless 
steel large diameter welded pipe (stainless steel pipe) from Turkey.\2\ 
As discussed below, the ITC subsequently found three domestic like 
products covered by the scope of the investigation (welded line pipe, 
welded structural pipe, and stainless steel pipe) and, accordingly, 
made a separate injury determination with respect to each domestic like 
product. On April 15, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final 
determination, pursuant to section 735(d) of the Act, that an industry 
in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of 
section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, by reason of LTFV imports of welded 
line pipe and welded structural pipe from Turkey.\3\ Additionally, the 
ITC made a negligibility determination with respect to stainless steel 
pipe.\4\ Commerce released draft revised scope language for comment by 
parties.\5\ No party objected to the revised scope language in this 
proceeding.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are welded line pipe and welded 
structural pipe from Turkey. For a complete description of the scope of 
this order, see the Appendix to this notice.

Amendment to Final Determination

    A ministerial error is defined as an error in additional, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other 
similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 35l.224(e) and 
(f), Commerce is amending the Final Determination to reflect the 
correction of ministerial errors in the final estimated weighted 
average dumping margins calculated for Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi 
ve Ticaret A.S. and HDM Celik Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. In addition, 
because these margins are the basis for the estimated weighted average 
dumping margin determined for all other Turkish producers and exporters 
of subject merchandise, we also are revising the ``all-others'' rate in 
the Final Determination.\7\ The amended estimated weighted average 
dumping margins are listed in the Suspension of Liquidation section 
below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See ``Memorandum, ``Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of 
Large Diameter Welded Pipe from the Republic of Turkey: Allegation 
of Ministerial Errors in the Final Determination,'' dated April 1, 
2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Antidumping Duty Order

    On April 15, 2019, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination 
in this investigation, in which it found that imports of welded line 
pipe and welded structural pipe from Turkey are materially injuring a 
U.S. industry.\8\ As a result, and in accordance with sections 
735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act, we are publishing this antidumping duty 
order. As noted above, in its determination, the ITC found three 
domestic like products covered by the scope of the investigation: 
welded line pipe, welded structural pipe, and stainless steel pipe. The 
ITC found that that imports of stainless steel pipe from Turkey are 
negligible. The ITC made affirmative determinations with respect to 
welded line pipe and welded structural pipe from Turkey. Because the 
ITC made distinct and different injury determinations for separate 
domestic like products, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on entries of welded line 
pipe and welded structural pipe (subject merchandise)

[[Page 18800]]

from Turkey, and not on entries of stainless steel pipe (excluded 
merchandise) from Turkey.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See ITC Notification; and ITC Final Determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welded Line Pipe

    The Final ITC Report describes welded line pipe as a tubular 
product produced from carbon and alloy steel, produced to American 
Petroleum Institute (API) 5L specifications, and designed for conveying 
liquids and gases.\9\ Because the ITC determined that LTFV imports of 
welded line pipe from Turkey are materially injuring a U.S. 
industry,\10\ all unliquidated entries of subject merchandise from 
Turkey, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, are subject to the 
assessment of antidumping duties, as described below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Final ITC Report at 7.
    \10\ Id. at 1 and 5.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of the ITC Final Determination, in accordance with 
section 736(a) of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP to assess, upon 
further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties equal to the amount 
by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price 
(or constructed export price) of the merchandise for all relevant 
entries of welded line pipe from Turkey. Antidumping duties will be 
assessed on unliquidated entries of welded line pipe from Turkey 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
August 27, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary 
Determination,\11\ but will not be assessed on entries occurring after 
the expiration of the provisional measures period, beginning on 
February 23, 2019, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, until 
the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination in the Federal 
Register.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welded Structural Pipe

    The Final ITC Report describes welded structural pipe as a tubular 
product produced from carbon and alloy steel, produced to American 
Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications, and designed 
for support in construction projects and piling.\12\ Because the ITC 
determined that LTFV imports of welded structural pipe from Turkey are 
materially injuring a U.S. industry,\13\ all unliquidated entries of 
subject merchandise from Turkey, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, 
are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties, as described 
below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Final ITC Report at 7.
    \13\ Id. at 1 and 5.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of the ITC Final Determination, in accordance with 
section 736(a) of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP to assess, upon 
further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties for all relevant 
entries of welded structural pipe from Turkey. Antidumping duties will 
be assessed on unliquidated entries of welded structural pipe from 
Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after August 27, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary 
Determination,\14\ but will not be assessed on entries occurring after 
the expiration of the provisional measures period, beginning on 
February 23, 2019, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, until 
the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination in the Federal 
Register.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See Preliminary Determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stainless Steel Pipe

    The Final ITC Report describes stainless steel pipe as being 
produced from stainless steel for its high-chrome chemistry and 
corrosion-resistant properties.\15\ Because the ITC determined that 
imports of stainless steel pipe from Turkey are negligible,\16\ 
Commerce will direct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation for 
entries of stainless steel pipe from Turkey entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, and to refund all cash deposits with respect to these 
entries pursuant to section 735(c)(2) of the Act.

    In accordance with section 736 of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP 
to reinstitute the suspension of liquidation of subject merchandise 
(i.e., welded line pipe and welded structural pipe) from Turkey, 
effective the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination in the 
Federal Register, and to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce 
pursuant to section 736(a)(1) of the Act, antidumping duties for each 
entry of the subject merchandise equal to the amount by which the 
normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or 
constructed export price) of the merchandise. We intend to instruct CBP 
to require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit 
estimated import duties on this merchandise, cash deposits for each 
entry of subject merchandise equal to the rates noted below. These 
instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further 
notice. For the purpose of determining cash deposit rates, the 
estimated weighted average dumping margins for imports of subject 
merchandise from Turkey have been adjusted, as appropriate, for export 
subsidies found in the final determination of the companion 
countervailing duty investigation of this merchandise imported from 
Turkey. The all-others rate applies to all producers or exporters not 
specifically listed.

Appendix

 Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order is welded carbon and alloy 
steel pipe (other than stainless steel pipe), more than 406.4 mm (16 
inches) in nominal outside diameter (large diameter welded pipe), 
regardless of wall thickness, length, surface finish, grade, end 
finish, or stenciling. Large diameter welded pipe may be used to 
transport oil, gas, slurry, steam, or other fluids, liquids, or 
gases. It may also be used for structural purposes, including, but 
not limited to, piling. Specifically, not included is large diameter 
welded pipe produced only to specifications of the American Water 
Works Association (AWWA) for water and sewage pipe.
    Large diameter welded pipe used to transport oil, gas, or 
natural gas liquids is normally produced to the American Petroleum 
Institute (API) specification 5L. Large diameter welded pipe may 
also be produced to American Society for Testing and Materials 
(ASTM) standards A500, A252, or A53, or other relevant domestic 
specifications, grades and/or standards. Large diameter welded pipe 
can be produced to comparable foreign specifications, grades and/or 
standards or to proprietary specifications, grades and/or standards, 
or can be non-graded material. All pipe meeting the physical 
description set forth above is covered by the scope of this order, 
whether or not produced according to a particular standard.
    Subject merchandise also includes large diameter welded pipe 
that has been further processed in a third country, including but 
not limited to coating, painting, notching, beveling, cutting, 
punching, welding, or any other processing that would not otherwise 
remove the merchandise from the scope of the order if performed in 
the country of manufacture of the in-scope large diameter welded 
pipe.
    Excluded from the scope are any products covered by the existing 
antidumping duty order on welded line pipe from the Republic of 
Turkey. See Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Korea and the 
Republic of Turkey: Antidumping Duty Orders, 80 FR 75056 (December 
1, 2015).
    The large diameter welded pipe that is subject to this order is 
currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS) under subheadings 7305.11.1030, 7305.11.1060,
