Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe From Oman: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016-2017, 29846-29848 [2019-13478]

In Whirlpool III, the CAFC held that: {T}he CIT erred when it stated that assembly processes were absent from the specified post-extrusion processes. The general scope language unambiguously includes aluminum extrusions that are part of an assembly. The Orders explicitly include aluminum extrusions ‘‘that are assembled after importation’’ in addition to ‘‘aluminum extrusion components that are attached (e.g., by welding or fasteners) to form subassemblies.’’ 9 Thus, the CAFC held that Commerce’s determination in the Final Scope Ruling ‘‘that the general scope language includes Whirlpool’s assembled handles was supported by substantial evidence.’’ 10 The CAFC further held that Commerce’s determination that the handles did not satisfy the finished merchandise exclusion was based on an incorrect interpretation of the exclusion.11 Therefore, the CAFC reversed Whirlpool II, which affirmed the Remand Redetermination, and instructed the CIT to vacate the Remand Redetermination and reinstate the Final Scope Ruling, in part, with respect to Commerce’s determination that the general scope language included the handles.12 The CAFC further vacated those portions of Whirlpool I that held that the general scope language did not cover the handles.13 In addition, the CAFC affirmed, in part, those portions of Whirlpool I which rejected Commerce’s interpretation of the finished merchandise exclusion and instructed the CIT to vacate the remainder of the Final Scope Ruling.14 Finally, the CAFC remanded to the CIT for Commerce to reconsider its interpretation of the finished merchandise exclusion as it pertains to Whirlpool’s handles.15 On January 14, 2019, in Whirlpool IV, in accordance with Whirlpool III, the CIT vacated the Remand Redetermination, reinstated those portions of the Final Scope Ruling concluding that Whirlpool’s handles are khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 8 See Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Court Decision Not in Harmony with Final Scope Ruling and Notice of Amended Final Scope Ruling Pursuant to Court Decision, 81 FR 66259 (September 27, 2016) (First Amended Final Scope Ruling). 9 See Whirlpool Corporation v.

As a result of the dismissal of Whirlpool’s action, no further action is required. Therefore, we are issuing a second amended final scope ruling and find that Whirlpool’s handles are within the scope of the Orders. Accordingly, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to continue to suspend liquidation of Whirlpool’s handles until appropriate liquidation instructions are sent. As of the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the cash deposit rate for entries of Whirlpool’s handles will be the applicable cash deposit rate of the exporters of the merchandise from China to the United States.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Abstract This request is for a revision and extension of a currently approved information collection. The Magnuson-Stevens Act (16 U.S.C. 1801) provides that the Secretary of Commerce is responsible for the conservation and management of marine fisheries resources in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), 3–200 nautical miles off the United States (U.S.) coastline. NOAA Fisheries, Northwest Region manages the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery in the EEZ off Washington, Oregon, and California under the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan. The regulations implementing the Pacific Groundfish Fishery require that those vessels participating in the limited entry fishery to be registered to a valid limited entry permit. Participation in the fishery and access to a limited entry permit has been restricted to control the overall harvest capacity. NOAA Fisheries seeks comment on the extension of permit information collections required for: (1) Renewal PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and transfer of Pacific Coast Groundfish limited entry permits (LEPs); (2) implementation of certain provisions of the sablefish permit stacking program as provided for at 50 CFR 660.231 and 660.25; and (3) issuing and fulfilling the terms and conditions of certain exempted fishing permits (EFPs). The regulations implementing the limited entry program are found at 50 CFR part 660, subpart G. Also, NOAA Fisheries requires an information collection to implement certain aspects of the sablefish permit stacking program which prevents excessive fleet consolidation. As part of the annual renewal process, NOAA Fisheries requires a corporation or partnership that owns or holds (as vessel owner) a sablefish endorsed permit to provide a complete ownership interest form listing all individuals with ownership interest in the entity. Similarly, any sablefish endorsed permit transfer involving registration of a business entity requires an ownership interest form if either the permit owner or vessel owner is a corporation or partnership. This information is used to determine if individuals own or hold sablefish permits in excess of the limit of three permits. Also, for transfer requests made during the sablefish primary season (April 1st through October 31st), the permit owner is required to report the remaining tier pounds not yet harvested on the sablefish endorsed permit at the time of transfer. Applicants for an EFP must submit written information that allows NOAA Fisheries and the Pacific Fishery Management Council to evaluate the proposed exempted fishing project activities and weigh the benefits and costs of the proposed activities. The Council makes a recommendation on each EFP application and for successful applicants, NOAA Fisheries issues the EFP which contains terms and conditions for the project including various reporting requirements. The information included in an application is specified at 50 CFR 600.745(b)(2) and the Council Operating Procedure #19. Permit holders are required to file preseason harvest plans, interim and/or final summary reports on the results of the project, and in some cases individual vessels and other permit holders are required to provide data reports (i.e., logbooks and/or catch reports). The results of EFPs are commonly used to explore ways to reduce effort on depressed stocks, encourage innovation and efficiency in the fishery, provide access to constrained stocks by directly measuring the bycatch associated with E:\FR\FM\25JNN1.SGM 25JNN1

    Based on our review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties, these final results do not differ from the

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, Commerce determines that the following 
weighted-average dumping margin exists for the period June 8, 2016 
through November 30, 2017:

Duty Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce shall determine and 
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.\7\ Commerce intends to issue appropriate 
assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment rate 
calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation 
of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in 
Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 
(February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis, we calculated importer-specific ad 
valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total 
entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Upon issuance of the final results of this 
administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates 
calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 
0.5 percent), Commerce will issue instructions directly to CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries. Where either the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, 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.
    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice,\8\ 
for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each 
respondent for which it did not know that its merchandise was destined 
for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction. We intend to issue assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final 
results of this review.

and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during the POR. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (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/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.
