[[Page 20473]]

Final Determination of No Shipments

    Prior to the issuance of the questionnaire, Conduit reported that 
it made no sales of subject merchandise during the POR.\10\ On May 8, 
2019, we placed the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) port 
inquiry instructions on the record that we sent to CBP regarding each 
company that submitted a statement of no shipments. We received no 
information from CBP contrary to the statements of no shipments from 
the companies contained in the attachments to the CBP Information 
Memorandum.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Conduit's Letter, ``Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel 
Pipe from Mexico: Response to Comments on Notice of No Sales and 
Confirmation of No Sales, dated April 19, 2019. This statement 
included RYMCO.
    \11\ The port inquiries were for: Conduit, ITISA, Lamina y 
Placa, Mach 1 Aero, Mach 1 Global, Regiopytsa, Tubacero, and TUMEX.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On June 28, 2019, we received a certification of no shipments of 
subject merchandise from Mueller, which contained documentation in 
support of its contention that it had no prior knowledge of the entry 
of products it had sold into the United States.\12\ Based on this 
evidence, we preliminarily determined that Mueller made no shipments of 
subject merchandise into the United States during the POR.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Mueller's Letter, ``Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy 
Steel Pipe from Mexico: Mueller Certification of No Shipments,'' 
dated June 28, 2019.
    \13\ See Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On July 8, 2019, we received a certification of no shipments of 
subject merchandise from Conduit and RYMCO which contained 
documentation supporting their contentions that they had no prior 
knowledge of subject merchandise exported to the United States during 
the POR, and that the products listed in the CBP data were not subject 
merchandise.\14\ Based on this evidence, we preliminarily determined 
that Conduit and RYMCO made no shipments of subject merchandise into 
the United States during the POR.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See Conduit/RYMCO's Letter, ``Certain Circular Welded Non-
Alloy Steel Pipe from Mexico: Conduit/RYMCO Response to Department 
Questionnaire--Statement of No Sales of Subject Merchandise,'' dated 
July 8, 2019.
    \15\ See Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 48908.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we 
continue to determine for these final results that Conduit, Mueller, 
and RYMCO made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.

Assessment

    Commerce shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
Because Commerce determined that Conduit, Mueller, and RYMCO had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under those companies' case numbers (i.e., at those companies' 
rates) will be liquidated at the all-others rate effective during the 
POR, consistent with Commerce's practice.\16\ We intend to issue 
assessment instructions directly to CBP 41 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ For a full discussion of this clarification, see 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements for estimated antidumping duties 
will be effective upon publication of the notice of these final results 
of review for all shipments of circular welded non-alloy steel pipe 
from Mexico entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the 
Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Conduit, Mueller, and RYMCO will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (2) for merchandise exported by producers 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 recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent period for the producer of the 
merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 32.62 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\17\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 and/or countervailing 
duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce's 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or 
countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties Regarding Administrative Protective 
Order

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition 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 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing notice of these final results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213(h).
