Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs are listed in the Appendix to this notice and addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.5 Interested parties can find a complete discussion of these issues and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov, and is also available to all interested parties in the Central Records Unit, room B8024, of the main Department of Commerce building.

The signed and electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a no shipment claim from one company involved in this administrative review, SeAH Steel Corporation (SeAH). In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that SeAH had no reviewable transactions during the POR. We received no comments from interested parties with respect to this claim. Therefore, because the record indicates that this company did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we continue to find that SeAH had no reviewable transactions during the POR. Changes Since the Preliminary Results jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain changes to the preliminary weighted-average margin 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the 2016– 2017 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Heavy Walled Rectangular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from the Republic of Korea,’’ (dated concurrently with these results) (Issues and Decision Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by this notice.

Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where DOSCO and HiSteel reported the entered value of their U.S. sales, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio 6 See accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 7 This rate is based on the rates for the respondents that were selected for individual review, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.

Where the respondents did not report entered value, we calculated the entered value in order to calculate the 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. For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we will assign an assessment rate based on the average 8 of the cash deposit rates calculated for DOSCO and HiSteel. 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 duties, where applicable.9 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this administrative review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash 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; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) 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 deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 3.24 percent, the all-others rate established 8 This rate was calculated as discussed in footnote 7. 9 See E:\FR\FM\28MYN1.SGM section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. 28MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 102 / Tuesday, May 28, 2019 / Notices in the LTFV investigation.10 These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. 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 during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition 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 return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs are listed in the 
Appendix to this notice and addressed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.\5\ Interested parties can find a complete discussion of 
these issues and the corresponding recommendations in this public 
memorandum, which is on file electronically via Enforcement and

Final Results of the 2016-2017 Administrative Review of the 
Antidumping Duty Order on Heavy Walled Rectangular Welded Carbon 
Steel Pipes and Tubes from the Republic of Korea,'' (dated 
concurrently with these results) (Issues and Decision Memorandum), 
which is hereby adopted by this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a no shipment 
claim from one company involved in this administrative review, SeAH 
Steel Corporation (SeAH). In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily 
determined that SeAH had no reviewable transactions during the POR. We 
received no comments from interested parties with respect to this 
claim. Therefore, because the record indicates that this company did 
not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we 
continue to find that SeAH had no reviewable transactions during the 
POR.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain 
changes to the preliminary weighted-average margin calculations for 
DOSCO and HiSteel, and those companies not selected for individual 
review.\6\

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days 
of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this 
proceeding, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where DOSCO and HiSteel reported 
the entered value of their U.S. sales, 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 for which entered value was reported. Where the 
respondents did not report entered value, we calculated the entered 
value in order to calculate the 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 average \8\ of the cash 
deposit rates calculated for DOSCO and HiSteel. 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 duties, where applicable.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ This rate was calculated as discussed in footnote 7.
    \9\ 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 administrative review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash 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; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-
value (LTFV) 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 deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 3.24 percent, the 
all-others rate established

[[Page 24473]]

in the LTFV investigation.\10\ These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

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

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition 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 return/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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act

    Dated: May 20, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
