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 margins for NEXTEEL and SeAH.6 Duty Absorption In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily found that antidumping duties were absorbed on all U.S. sales of subject merchandise that were exported by SeAH.7 However, because NEXTEEL did not sell merchandise to the United States through an affiliated importer, within the meaning of section 751(a)(4) of the Act, we did not make a preliminary duty absorption finding for NEXTEEL.8 We have received no further information regarding this issue for the final results. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to find that antidumping duties have been absorbed on all U.S. sales of subject merchandise that were exported by SeAH. Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a no shipment claim from HiSteel Co., Ltd. (HiSteel) and preliminarily determined that HiSteel had no shipments during the POR.9 We received no comments from interested parties with respect to this claim. Therefore, because the record indicates that HiSteel had no entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we continue to find that HiSteel had no shipments during the POR.

Because we cannot apply our normal methodology of calculating a weightedaverage margin due to requests to protect business proprietary information, we find this rate to be the best proxy of the actual weighted-average margin determined for the mandatory respondents. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, Final Results of Changed-Circumstances Review, and Revocation of an Order in Part, 75 FR 53661, 53663 (September 1, 2010); see also Memorandum, ‘‘Calculation of the Review-Specific Average Rate for the Preliminary Results,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Jun 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 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), NEXTEEL reported the entered value of its U.S. sales such that 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. SeAH did not report actual entered value for all of its U.S. sales such that we calculated entered value and determined the importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates as described above for NEXTEEL. 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 assessment 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 equal to each company’s weighted-average dumping margin identified above. 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.11 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 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 equal to the weighted-average dumping margin that is 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 11 See PO 00000 section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27763 deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously investigated companies not listed above, including the company for Commerce has determined had no shipments in these final results, the cash deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the company participated; (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 cash deposit rate established for the most recently completed segment for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 4.38 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.12 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. 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 This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. 12 See Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Turkey: Antidumping Duty Orders, 80 FR 75056, 75057 (December 1, 2015).

Postponement of Preliminary Determinations Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in an LTFV investigation within 140 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, section 733(c)(1) of the Act permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 190 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation if: (A) The petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement; or (B) Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating and determines that (i) the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that (ii) additional time is necessary to make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On March 29, 2019, the petitioner 2 submitted timely requests that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV investigations.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement to allow Commerce time to issue and review questionnaire responses and to identify any deficiencies in those responses.4 On May 10, 2019, the petitioner withdrew its request to postpone the preliminary determination for the Thailand investigation.5 On May 15, 2019, the petitioner withdrew its request to postpone the preliminary determination for the Taiwan investigation.6 On May 23, 2019, the petitioner renewed its request postpone the preliminary determination for the Taiwan investigation.7 Thus, petitioner has submitted timely requests that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in the India, Taiwan, and China LTFV investigations. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner has stated the reasons for requesting the postponement of the preliminary determinations, and Commerce finds no compelling reason to deny the requests. Therefore, Commerce is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determinations by 50 days, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act. As a result, Commerce will issue its preliminary determinations no later than September 19, 2019. In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations of these investigations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determinations, unless postponed at a later date.

Final Results of the 2016-2017 Administrative Review of the 
Antidumping Duty Order on Welded Line Pipe from Korea'' (IDM), dated 
concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 margins for NEXTEEL and 
SeAH.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See IDM at 3.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Duty Absorption

    In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily found that antidumping 
duties were absorbed on all U.S. sales of subject merchandise that were 
exported by SeAH.\7\ However, because NEXTEEL did not sell merchandise 
to the United States through an affiliated importer, within the meaning 
of section 751(a)(4) of the Act, we did not make a preliminary duty 
absorption finding for NEXTEEL.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See PDM at 26-27.
    \8\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We have received no further information regarding this issue for 
the final results. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to 
find that antidumping duties have been absorbed on all U.S. sales of 
subject merchandise that were exported by SeAH.

Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a no shipment 
claim from HiSteel Co., Ltd. (HiSteel) and preliminarily determined 
that HiSteel had no shipments during the POR.\9\ We received no 
comments from interested parties with respect to this claim. Therefore, 
because the record indicates that HiSteel had no entries of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR, we continue to find

    Review-Specific Average Rate Applicable to the Following Companies: 
\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ This rate is based on the weighted-average of the margins 
calculated for those companies selected for individual review using 
the publicly-ranged U.S. quantities. Because we cannot apply our 
normal methodology of calculating a weighted-average margin due to 
requests to protect business proprietary information, we find this 
rate to be the best proxy of the actual weighted-average margin 
determined for the mandatory respondents. See Ball Bearings and 
Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United 
Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews,

Disclosure of Calculations

    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), NEXTEEL reported the entered 
value of its U.S. sales such that 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. SeAH did not report 
actual entered value for all of its U.S. sales such that we calculated 
entered value and determined the importer-specific ad valorem 
assessment rates as described above for NEXTEEL. 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 
assessment 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 equal to each company's weighted-average 
dumping margin identified above. 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.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ 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 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 equal to the weighted-average dumping 
margin that is 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 listed 
above, including the company for Commerce has determined had no 
shipments in these final results, the cash deposit will continue to be 
the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed 
segment of this proceeding in which the company participated; (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 cash deposit rate established for the 
most recently completed segment for the producer of the subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 4.38 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\12\ 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.

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

    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
