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. Notification Regarding 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Commerce published the Preliminary Results on December 27, 2019.\1\ 
Interested parties were asked to comment within 30 days of the date of 
publication. We received no comments.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe from 
Taiwan: Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2017-2018, 84 FR 
71367 (December 27, 2019) (Preliminary Results).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are circular welded pipe from 
Taiwan. For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the 
Appendix to this notice.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that Founder Land, Shin Yang 
Steel Co., Ltd. (Shin Yang), Tension Steel Enterprise Co., Ltd. 
(Tension Steel), Yieh Hsing Enterprise Co., Ltd. (Yieh Hsing), and Yieh 
Phui Enterprise Co., Ltd. (Yieh Phui) had no 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, but rather to complete the 
review and issue appropriate instructions to Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) based on the final results of this review.\2\

Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 56989 (September 17, 
2010).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After issuing the Preliminary Results, we received no information 
that contradicted our Preliminary Results. No interested party 
commented on the Preliminary Results. Therefore, for these final 
results, we continue to find that Founder Land, Shin Yang, Tension 
Steel, Yieh Hsing, and Yieh Phui had no 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.\3\ Consistent with Commerce's clarification to 
its assessment practice, because we determined that Founder Land, Shin 
Yang, Tension Steel, Yieh Hsing, and Yieh Phui had no shipments of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Founder Land, Shin Yang, 
Tension Steel, Yieh Hsing, or Yieh Phui, for which these companies did 
not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, 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.\4\

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.

prior review, or the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, 
then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most

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.

Notification Regarding 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.

sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are (1) circular welded non-
alloy steel pipes and tubes, of circular cross section over 114.3 
millimeters (4.5 inches), but not over 406.4 millimeters (16 inches) 
in outside diameter, with a wall thickness of 1.65 millimeters 
(0.065 inches) or more, regardless of surface finish (black, 
galvanized, or painted), or end-finish (plain end, beveled end, 
threaded, or threaded and coupled); and (2) circular welded non-
alloy steel pipes and tubes, of circular cross-section less than 
406.4 millimeters (16 inches), with a wall thickness of less than 
1.65 millimeters (0.065 inches), regardless of surface finish 
(black, galvanized, or painted) or end-finish (plain end, beveled 
end, threaded, or threaded and coupled). These pipes and tubes are 
generally known as standard pipes and tubes and are intended for the 
low pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, air, and other 
liquids and gases in plumbing and heating systems, air conditioning 
units, automatic sprinkling systems, and other related uses, and 
generally meet ASTM A-53 specifications. Standard pipe may also be 
used for light load-bearing applications, such as for fence-tubing 
and as structural pipe tubing used for framing and support members 
for construction, or load-bearing purposes in the construction, 
shipbuilding, trucking, farm-equipment, and related
