On April 15, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination, pursuant to 735(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (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 Canada.3 Additionally, the ITC made a negative determination of material injury or threat of material injury 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 Canada. For a complete description of the scope of this order, see the Appendix to this notice. 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 Canada are materially injuring a U.S. industry.6 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 made a negative determination with respect to stainless steel pipe from Canada.

Notice of No Sales If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (POR), it must notify Commerce within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All submissions must be filed electronically at http://access.trade.gov in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303.1 Such submissions are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy must be served on every party on Commerce’s service list. Respondent Selection In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to place the CBP data on the record within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 30 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection should be submitted within seven days after the placement of the CBP data on the record of this review. Parties wishing to submit rebuttal comments should submit those comments within five days after the deadline for the initial comments. In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, Commerce has found that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (e.g., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, Commerce will not conduct collapsing analyses at the 1 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).

For any company subject to this review, if Commerce determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value (Q&V) Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete Q&V data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that has requested a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that Commerce may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. Determinations by Commerce to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis.

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

SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), 
Commerce is issuing an antidumping duty order on large diameter welded 
carbon and alloy steel line and structural pipe from Canada.

DATES: Applicable May 2, 2019.

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 Canada.\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 Canada.\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 735(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(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 
Canada.\3\ Additionally, the ITC made a negative determination of 
material injury or threat of material injury 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 Canada. For a complete description of the scope of 
this order, see the Appendix to this notice.

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 Canada are materially injuring a 
U.S. industry.\6\ 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 made a negative determination with respect to stainless steel pipe 
from Canada. The ITC made an affirmative determination with respect to 
welded line pipe and welded structural pipe from Canada. Because the 
ITC made

[[Page 18776]]

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

    \6\ 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.\7\ Because the ITC determined that LTFV imports of 
welded line pipe from Canada are materially injuring a U.S. 
industry,\8\ all unliquidated entries of subject merchandise from 
Canada, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, are subject to the 
assessment of antidumping duties, as described below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Final ITC Report at 7.
    \8\ 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 Canada. Antidumping duties will be 
assessed on unliquidated entries of welded line pipe from Canada 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
August 27, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary 
Determination,\9\ 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.\10\ Because the ITC 
determined that LTFV imports of welded structural pipe from Canada are 
materially injuring a U.S. industry,\11\ all unliquidated entries of 
subject merchandise from Canada, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, 
are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties, as described 
below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Final ITC Report at 7.
    \11\ 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 Canada. Antidumping duties will 
be assessed on unliquidated entries of welded structural pipe from 
Canada entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after August 27, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary 
Determination,\12\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ 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.\13\ Because the ITC made a negative 
determination of material injury or threat of material injury by reason 
of LTFV imports of stainless steel pipe from Canada,\14\ Commerce will 
direct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation for entries of 
stainless steel pipe from Canada entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
and to refund all cash deposits with respect to these entries pursuant

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 Canada, 
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. The all-others rate applies to all other producers or exporters 
not specifically listed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ Consistent with the Final Determination, we continue to 
treat Evraz Inc. NA, Evraz Inc. NA Canada, and the Canadian National 
Steel Corporation as a single entity.

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

[[Page 18777]]

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.
