Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we found that neither ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Roman S.A. (ArcelorMittal) nor Silcotub S.A. (Silcotub) made shipments of the subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Also, in the Preliminary Results, we stated that consistent with our practice, it was not appropriate to rescind the review with respect to ArcelorMittal and Silcotub, but rather to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) based on the final results of this review.3 After issuing the Preliminary Results, we received no information that contradicted our preliminary results. Therefore, for these final results, we continue to find that neither ArcelorMittal nor Silcotub made shipments of the subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Assessment Rates Commerce determines, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with these final results of review.4 Consistent with Commerce’s clarification to its assessment practice, because we determined that ArcelorMittal and Silcotub had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced, but not exported by, ArcelorMittal and Silcotub, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the 3 See, e.g., Magnesium Metal from the Russian Federation: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 26922, 26923 (May 13, 2010), unchanged in Magnesium Metal from the Russian Federation: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 56989 (September 17, 2010). 4 See 19 CFR 351.212(b).

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is small diameter seamless pipe. A 
full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum.

Analysis of Comments Received

    In the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we addressed all issues 
raised in parties' case and rebuttal briefs. In the Appendix to this 
notice, we provide a list of the issues raised by parties. The Issues 
and Decision Memorandum is a public document and 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 https://access.trade.gov and

Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Issues and Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that neither ArcelorMittal 
Tubular Products Roman S.A. (ArcelorMittal) nor Silcotub S.A. 
(Silcotub) made shipments of the subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POR. Also, in the Preliminary Results, we stated that 
consistent with our practice, it was not appropriate to rescind the 
review with respect to ArcelorMittal and Silcotub, but rather to 
complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) based on the final results of this review.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See, e.g., Magnesium Metal from the Russian Federation: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 
26922, 26923 (May 13, 2010), unchanged in Magnesium Metal from the 
Russian Federation: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 75 FR 56989 (September 17, 2010).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After issuing the Preliminary Results, we received no information 
that contradicted our preliminary results. Therefore, for these final 
results, we continue to find that neither ArcelorMittal nor Silcotub 
made shipments of the subject merchandise to the United States during 
the POR.

Assessment Rates

    Commerce determines, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with these 
final results of review.\4\ Consistent with Commerce's clarification to 
its assessment practice, because we determined that ArcelorMittal and 
Silcotub had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR 
produced, but not exported by, ArcelorMittal and Silcotub, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate any entries at the all-others rate if there 
is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.\5\

Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following 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 rates for ArcelorMittal 
and Silcotub will remain unchanged from the rate assigned to them in 
the most recently completed review of those companies; (2) for 
merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this 
review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published 
for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a 
firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, then the cash deposit rate will 
be the rate established for the most recently completed segment for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 13.06 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation. 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    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 the POR. 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.
