    For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Methodology

    Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Act. In the Preliminary Results, Commerce found 
that the four companies for which a review was requested failed to 
provide separate rate applications or certifications.\2\ Therefore, 
Commerce preliminarily determined that these four companies are part of 
the China-wide entity. We have not received any information since the 
issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for 
reconsidering this determination. For a full description of the 
methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum, available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The four companies are: (1) Baoshan Iron & Steel; (2) 
Hengyang Steel Tube Group International Trading Inc.; (3) Hubei 
Xinyegang Steel Co., Ltd.; and (4) Hubei Xin Yegang Special Tube.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Review

    We have received no information or argument contradicting our 
preliminary finding; thus, we have made no changes to our preliminary 
analysis. Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal 
Register notice. For further details of the issues addressed in this 
proceeding, see the Preliminary Results.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
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. 
Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after 
the publication date of the final results of this review. For those 
entities that are subject to this review that Commerce has determined 
are part of the China-wide entity (i.e., Baoshan Iron & Steel; Hengyang 
Steel Tube Group International Trading Inc.; Hubei Xinyegang Steel Co., 
Ltd.; and Hubei Xin Yegang Special Tube), we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate any appropriate entries at the China-wide rate of 99.14 
percent.\3\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review 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) For all China exporters of subject 
merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the China-wide entity 
(i.e., 99.14 percent); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed 
China and non-China exporters which are not under review in this 
segment of the proceeding but received a separate rate in a previous 
segment, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-
specific rate published for the most recently-completed period; and (3) 
for all non-China exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the China exporter(s) that supplied the non-China 
exporter. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain 
in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the 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 terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice of the final results of this administrative review is 
issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5) and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
