Download as PDF 66376 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 233 / Wednesday, December 4, 2019 / Notices the AD Order 1 on malleable cast iron pipe fittings from China, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).2 Commerce conducted this sunset review on an expedited basis, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), because it received a complete timely and adequate response from domestic interested parties 3 but no substantive responses from respondent interested parties. As a result of its review, Commerce determined that revocation of the Order would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping. Commerce also notified the ITC of the magnitude of the dumping margins likely to prevail should the Order be revoked.4 On November 25, 2019, the ITC published its determination, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the existing AD order on malleable cast iron pipe fittings from China would be likely to lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.5 Scope of the Order khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES The products covered by the Order are certain malleable iron pipe fittings, cast, other than grooved fittings, from the People’s Republic of China.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect cash deposits of estimated antidumping duties at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of the order will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c)(2), Commerce intends to initiate the next sunset review of the Order not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of this continuation.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    As no parties submitted comments on the Preliminary Determination, 
Commerce has not modified its analysis from that presented in the 
Preliminary Determination, and no decision memorandum accompanies this 
Federal Register notice.

Assessment Rates

    We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative 
review. Pursuant to Commerce's assessment practice, because we have 
determined that Ercros had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any 
suspended entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., 
at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the all-others rate.\3\ 
Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15

deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published 
for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which 
that manufacturer or exporter participated; (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

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 is the only reminder to parties subject to the 
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

the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 
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.
